Biologists say Monsanto’s glyphosate is devastating wildlife; deer populations down 50 percent

In Europe millions have come out against Monsanto’s top selling, cancer causing, herbicide Roundup, forcing the pro-business European Commission  to ban it, only to then slip in a clause giving it 2 years more at least. But several countries and hundreds of Cities and Local Councils have already prohibited glyphosate spraying and now the movement has spread to Canada with the focus that wildlife is also being decimated.

Canada’s New Brunswick province has lately become a center of controversy regarding the use of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and the latest revelations involve the decline of deer populations due to widespread spraying of glyphosate – the active ingredient in Roundup.stop Glyphosate spraying NOW

Environmentalist groups are calling for a ban on the use of glyphosate for “forest management” purposes, after it was revealed that deer populations in the province have been reduced by half since 2007.

Groups such as Greenpeace and “Stop Spraying New Brunswick” are also demanding a review of “for industry and by industry” provincial forest management strategies, which appear to be largely focused on creating more timber for pulp mills, with little regard for the environment or taxpayers who are footing the bill for the spraying – whether they like it or not.

Non-GM crops will feed the world; GMOs decrease yield, enslave farmers and destroy the environment

 

Monsanto's Roundup is a potent poison which can only be used GMO crops that are resistant, causing ba worldwide massacre that illustrates the dangers of GMO foods.

In fact, observations in Africa have found that smallholders in South Africa are actually burdened by genetically modified maize, which was forced on them through government program interventions starting in 2001. A paper in the South African Journal of Science by researchers Klara Fischer, Johnnie van den Berg and Charles Mutengwa found that South African smallholders would benefit more from a diverse selection of seed that is suitable to various growing conditions and changing pest pressures.

Yummy Yams: Sweet Potatoes are Perfect in your Garden

sweet-potatoes-vine-and-flower-NCSPCby: Amy Goodrich   from NaturalNews)with thanks

Sweet potatoes have been cultivated for thousands of years in Central and South America. They are one of the oldest vegetables known to man. In recent years, sweet potatoes have gained a lot of traction among the health-conscious eaters.

If we take a closer look at their nutritional value, it’s no surprise that sweet potatoes often make it to the top of healthy food lists. According to The World’s Healthiest Foods, one serving of this ancient food packs 214 percent of your daily value of vitamin A, 52 percent of your vitamin C, and decent amounts of manganese, calcium, potassium, and fiber while adding no fat.

GMO Industry abuses Gullible Celebs to launch false ”Golden Rice Blocked by Greens” campaign

It’s easy to demonstrate (see below) that this is  a campaign of lies.  ‘Golden Rice’ has been a total flop, still doesn’t exist and so hasn’t even been presented for legalisation, never mind blocked.GMO-Rice_Filipinos-oppose_735_350_2-735x350But the damage is done.. GMO big money allies with the right wing popular media and gullible celebs to broadcast the populist message, repeated forever in the media and in homes and bars worldwide ..that ‘stupid reactionary greens are causing millions of deaths by blocking GMO ‘miracle rice’.

By the same token if anti-GMO activists had the same money and influence they could send a true and proven  message.. That by allowing and promoting GMO crops designed to work with the ‘probably carcinogenic’ glyphosate weedkiller the industry is profiting from a crime against humanity and nature, no less than a huge and continuing massacre worldwide, and has been knowingly doing so for decades! .

Pro-GMO campaign exploits Nobel laureates to attack Greenpeace and fool the people.

Golden Rice Dreams

Greenpeace is being criticized for blocking GMO golden rice – even though the crop is years away from being ready, reports Claire Robinson

A new pro-GMO propaganda campaign has been launched in which, in the words of a Washington Post article, “more then 100 Nobel laureates have signed a letter urging Greenpeace to end its opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Shock: Monsanto could lose Europe Glyphosate Battle

”All in all this is adding up to a refreshing popular revolt against the GMO death industry. Hooray for those of us who wish to live”.
protect the people

by  F. William Engdahl       Last month three EU member states unexpectedly refused to go along with the decision of the EU Health and Food Safety Commissioner and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to re-approve the world’s most widely used weed killing chemical, Glyphosate.
This dramatic and encouraging developments suggest that for the first time the power of GMO agrochemical giants like Monsanto and Syngenta, Dow and DuPont, BASF, Bayer could undergo a devastating defeat.
Were this to happen, it could well be the death knell for the misbegotten Rockefeller Foundation Genetic Manipulation project that has destroyed much of Western farmland and poisoned hundreds of millions of GMO fed farm animals and humans.

Bees in Europe recover after pesticides restricted

Bee populations in Europe see improvement after three toxic neonicotinoid herbicides are partly banned from their environment

Some resurgence in honey bees

After banning the herbicides clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, three years ago, Europe is already beginning to see a resurgence in bee populations. All three of these herbicides are still being used in the USA, where honeybee populations continue to rapidly decline.

If the rest of the world doesn’t begin cutting back on herbicide use significantly, as Europe has already started to do, then pollination of important vegetable and herb crops will likely diminish by 33 percent or more in the coming decade.iunsecticide

This will directly influence agricultural economy, limiting the availability of a large assortment of healthy crops that were once made readily available through the tedious work of natural pollinators.

Nature’s best pest control mechanisms already coexist in the environment. By continuing to take wide scale chemical approaches to the annihilation of pests, we throw off the intricate balance that is needed to sustain healthy ecosystems for future agricultural abundance.
