Raw Chef Dan's Tip Of The Month
Grow Your Own Food
Spring is on the way which means it is time to plant your seeds
In the coming hardships economically and ecologically it is time to think of ways you can provide for your self as much as possible on your own. With the collapse of our economy and the coming of the collapse of the US Dollar it will become more and more difficult to find and afford fresh food. Growing your own is a great option. With the coming of Radio Active Fallout contaminating our farm land and water supply getting fresh produce and knowing where it came from and what has it been exposed to will become almost impossible. When you grow your own food you know exactly what went into it and what it was exposed to.
This year forget the lawn, forget the sod, the petunias and tulips and plant some food. If you have even the smallest of space, use it. there are many choices to growing food like hanging plants, hydroponics, window gardens, back yard gardens and raised bed gardens. Create your own little spot of freedom and grow at least some of your food.
Monsanto Is Poisoning Us All: 117 Peer-Reviewed Scientific Studies Expose Hazards of Monsanto's Roundup Herbicide & "Roundup Ready" GMOs
In a previous issue of Organic Bytes, we reported that Don M. Huber, Ph.D., emeritus soil scientist of Purdue University, wrote a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack about a newly discovered virulent pathogen that proliferates in soil treated with Monsanto's Roundup herbicide.
The Monsanto pathogen is taken up by plants, transmitted to animals via their feed, and is passed on to human beings by the plants and meat they consume. The pathogen has yet to be described or named, though that work is almost complete.
At a March 24 seminar sponsored by Knox County Extension and the Center for Rural Affairs in Nebraska, Dr. Huber said that all the research and data would be published in a matter of weeks.
In his presentation, Dr. Huber summarized 117 peer-review scientific studies that show the hazards associated with Monsanto's Roundup herbicide and the "Roundup Ready" GMO crops that have increased its use:
* Compromised plant defense mechanisms; plants more susceptible to disease.
* Reduced availability and uptake of essential nutrients.
* Increased virulence of pathogens that attack plants.
* Lower yields.
Huber warned that ignoring these emerging realities may have dire consequences for agriculture such as rendering soils infertile, crops non-productive, and plants less nutritious. He said it could also, and apparently already is, compromising the health and well-being of animals and humans.
Researchers at the China Agricultural University say they have forcefully inserted genetically modified human genes into cows to produce a breast-milk-like substance.
The research was funded by the Beijing GenProtein Biotechnology Company which hopes to soon sell its genetically modified dairy products in supermarkets.
Like cows injected with genetically engineered bovine growth hormone before them, these new "humanized" dairy cows are likely to suffer poor health while producing milk that is nutritionally inferior and more likely to trigger an allergy or increase cancer risks in the children or adults who drink it.
Cloned and genetically modified animals also suffer greater health problems, increased mortality and a high number of still births.
Food produced from these animals is dangerous for humans because the insertion of foreign genes into DNA strands remains an inexact science. These foreign genes hit the DNA strands in random spots, changing the way they are expressed (turned on and turned off) and creating proteins never before ingested by human beings. These novel proteins could prove dangerous for large segments of the human population who find they are allergic to them.
San Francisco Green Festival
Concourse Exhibition Center
635 8th Street (at Brannan Street)
Join Organic Consumers Association's political director, Alexis Baden-Mayer, filmmaker Deborah Koons Garcia (The Future of Food), Pamm Larry (Label GMOs: It's Our Right To Know, a 2012 CA Ballot Initiative) and your fellow Millions Against Monsanto activists to brainstorm and solidify ideas for the Truth-in-Labeling campaign.
Let's take Millions Against Monsanto out of the Green Festival and into the streets at actions targeting Whole Foods & Trader Joe's. They say they support mandatory GMO labels, but they admit to selling unlabeled genetically engineered foods. We're marching to their stores from the San Francisco Green Festival.
Bring signs, banners, noise-makers, costumes, & musical instruments! Leave from the Organic Consumers Association booth (#1020): 7pm Sat, 6pm Sun.
Can you believe the nerve? A year ago the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil drilling rig exploded, killed eleven people, sank to the floor of the Gulf and triggered the biggest environmental calamity of a generation.
And now BP wants back in. Never mind the fact that they haven't actually paid for the cleanup of the catastrophe, or that Transocean - the company that owned the rig - just awarded their top execs millions in bonsues for 2010 being the (get this) "best year in safety performance in our company’s history".
It's not like offshore drilling has gotten any safer in the last twelve months, it's just that BP wants to make money from our natural resources again. We believe that there's no such thing as clean and safe oil drilling - especially not in our deepest waters off our coasts.
I'm sure you remember the images of oil soaked animals and closed beaches. Are we ready to put the safety of our Gulf in the hands of those who've wreaked the most havoc upon it? I don't think so.
