Do not miss this MUST READ article which provides an eye-opening glimpse into how Monsanto and Biotech stack the academic deck against the public interest. "Monsanto sent her a legal document to sign stating that she would give the company the results of the study before publication. Carman said, 'We would have been legally bound to do that whether they gave us seeds or not. No sensible scientist would agree to such conditions, and we didn’t'...But Monsanto and other GMO companies restrict access to their seeds for independent researchers. Anyone who buys Monsanto’s patented GM seed has to sign a technology agreement saying they will not use the seeds or crop for research or pass them to anyone else for that purpose. Even if permission to carry out research is given, companies typically retain the right to block publication if the results are 'not flattering', according to Scientific American...According to a former Rowett administrator, the campaign to silence Pusztai was set in motion by a phone call from Monsanto to US President Bill Clinton, who called British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who in turn called the Rowett Institute....'Research on GMOs is now taboo. You can’t find money for it… People don’t want to find answers to troubling questions. It’s the result of widespread fear of Monsanto and GMOs in general'...'the GMO lobby attempts to discredit the study and the scientists who conducted it. It’s despicable and unprecedented in the history of science.'" Jim

Did Monsanto - cloaked from public view - funnel funds into the legal defense of GE farmer Michael Baxter? It was Mr. Baxter who grew the GE Canola crop in 2010 which contaminated Steve Marsh's organic farm, causing Steve to lose his organic certification. In an important new Court development, the AUSTRALIAN SUPREME COURT HAS ORDERED Mr. Baxter to DISCLOSE financial help he has received. "Mr Marsh sought compensation after he lost organic certification over 70 per cent of his farm when GM canola swathes and seeds from Mr Baxter's property blew onto his land in 2010. In court on Wednesday, Mr Marsh appealed the costs decision and sought to find out if Mr Baxter had received any gifts or donations to pay his legal costs, making reference to the PGA and agricultural biotechnology company Monsanto...Under the indemnity principle, Mr Marsh did not have to pay any more in court costs than Mr Baxter himself paid his lawyers...Asked if there were payments from Monsanto, he said: 'Well, I can't tell you that because that is confidential'...Mr Marsh's legal team this week also delivered an appeal to the court on the dismissal of his compensation case." In a situation which closely mirrors that of 'OSGATA et al v. Monsanto,' the Steve Marsh compensation lawsuit was handled by a hostile judge who had made up his mind against the organic farmer early on. Jim

Local newspaper story of farmer Corey Johannsen who is shifting more and more to nonGMO crops. Courageous pioneering plant pathologist Dr. Donald Huber factors into Corey's awakening. "'For those promoting non-GMO crops, there are some truths about the concerns, he said...'It’s a touchy topic,' Johannsen said. 'When you mention non-GMO crops at meetings, I love to see eyes roll'...'I think what happens is that we may overuse the GMO traits as a catch-all to solve the problems that we may find in the field,' Johannsen said. 'I believe that many times we may be using GMO traits that we might not need in a particular field or area. Many times, we don’t have much of a choice, as GMO traits are usually bundled in the seed we plant'...'One of the speakers was Dr. Don Huber of Purdue University,' Johannsen said. 'He has knowledge that goes on forever. When he spoke, I really learned a lot about biology and soils. The part that really interested me was do we need GMO crops, or can we grow the same with non-GMO?'...'I feel like a recovering alcoholic in a small town where the only business left is a bar,' he said. 'I’m addicted to GMO technology and traits, and this is what is readily available in the current marketplace. I have to search out of my area to find non-GMO seed. So like the recovering alcoholic, it’s one step at a time, and sometimes there are challenges and struggles along the way. I’ll probably never quit GMOs cold turkey, as I’m sure there will be a need at times for this technology in my farming operation to remain profitable. I guess I just hope to be a ‘social drinker’ in the future and keep my use of GMOs in moderation.'" Here is a valuable 'Food Integrity Now' interview with Dr. Huber. Jim

Shocking confirmation in the form of a jaw-dropping NEW BOOK that our SKEPTICISM OVER THE SAFETY of genetically engineered (GE) food HAS BEEN WELL-FOUNDED. Enter Steven Druker's just published 'Altered Genes, Twisted Truth' and this recent WZON interview (9:13) with Jim. WZON is the progressive radio station owned by solid Bangor-native novelist Stephen King. "For the first time, Druker was able to uncover internal FDA documents which proved that FDA scientists had serious concerns about the safety of GMO food. Yet political decisions were made by politicians to ignore the concerns of those scientists and to allow genetically engineered foods to come into the food system without any testing. They are explosive revelations." This book promises to be a game-changer in discussions about GE food safety and Right-to-Know GMO Labeling. Please help spread the word. Jim & Megan

Anyone can find bland ho hum potatoes to their heart's content at every grocery store. The real treasure and fun is found by growing your own supply of exceptional potato varieties, digging them fresh and cooking them right away. Author Mark is from the UK so many of the varieties he notes are not available in USA . However, we do grow and sell two of the best he mentions: Yukon Gold and Rose Finn Apple. "If you want delicious potatoes, something you’ll be glad you wished for, you need to think with your cook’s hat on. And now’s the time to do it. Chips, potato dauphinoise, roast potatoes, potato salad, Lyonnaise potatoes, creamy mash and buttered new potatoes. These are the seven best reasons I can think of to grow your own potatoes." Jim

More excellent coverage - this time from the UK's 'Daily Mail' - about public-interest-lawyer Steven Druker's new expose' on GE food, 'Altered Genes, Twisted Truth.' The first printing of 10,000 copies has already SOLD OUT via pre-orders alone, and a second print run is being rushed forward. Books should become available March 20 and with the tremendous momentum building it is expected Steve's book will make the NYT Best Seller List. Dr. Jane Goodall is one of the book's strongest supporters. "Historically, critics of GM food have been lambasted by the GM companies, scientists who rely on their funding, and politicians, including the UK Government, as being ‘anti-science’.
"However, Dame Jane argues that the advocates of GM food have ignored evidence of harm with the result it is they who are guilty of being ‘anti-science’.
"The intervention is a powerful condemnation of the way biotech companies like Monsanto, Syngenta and Bayer, have forced GM crops and food on to dinner plates in the US without proper safety tests.
"And she is joining a growing campaign warning that Britain and Europe must not drop safeguards that have kept GM crops out.
"Dame Jane’s concerns have been raised in the foreword to a new book, ‘Altered Genes, Twisted Truth’, which is written by the American public interest lawyer, Steve Druker." Jim

Thank goodness for the Internet. You will not gain this MUST READ information on the near future of energy from self-serving mainstream media. Valuable article - DO TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT. "The Bank of England is doing a big study of this problem, which economists call that of 'stranded assets.' That is a fancy phrase for when you invest in something that suddenly loses its value...Coal isn’t just competing with wind. The conservative Deutsche Bank has just concluded that in 14 states of the US, solar power is now as inexpensive as that from coal and natural gas. Right now. That is, it would be crazy to build a new coal plant today when you could generate electricity just as cheaply with solar. And get this: by 2016– next year! — Deutsche Bank concludes that solar will be competitive with coal and natural gas in all but three or four states. And that is not an argument based on subsidies for solar. It will be as inexpensive as coal-generated electricity just purely on a market basis (in fact, it will be even cheaper, since there are massive government subsidies for coal, gas and oil)...Buying stocks in coal, gas and oil companies is like buying stocks in zeppelins. They are outmoded and prone to crashing and burning, a Hindenburg waiting to happen." Jim

One of the most powerful presentations was from Steven Druker, author of the upcoming book, 'Altered Genes, Twisted Truth.' "Steven Druker, an attorney and executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, lambasted pro-GMO scientists, the biotech industry, and the US Food and Drug Administration, saying GM foods are not safe and are on the market illegally...Druker said the FDA is violating its own policy on food additives, which states that additives developed through new technologies must be proven safe before they enter the market. 'This food had no business going to market,' he said...“Government scientists raised concerns but they were ignored,” said Druker, who gained access to internal FDA documents revealing agency scientists’ objections to GM technology during his lawsuit against the agency. He said the FDA is lying when it says GM foods are safe. 'The FDA has broken the law on this since 1992,' he said. As a result, Druker said: 'These foods should be banned, and the technology should be stopped. It’s time to tell the truth.'" My panel presentation has been posted on You Tube.

Hold onto your hats! This eye-opening MUST READ article documents NO ONE is minding the FDA-store and their cloaked malfeasance is beginning to unravel. Details about FDA's shocking kid-glove treatment of Biotech are beginning to come clear. These are EXPLOSIVE revelations and heads should roll. "Would it shock the public to know that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never formally approved any GE crop as safe for human consumption? Instead, these companies have been trusted to self-regulate with little scientific oversight and even less transparency in their methods...under voluntary consultation, the GE crop developer is encouraged, but not required, to consult with the FDA...Alarmingly, Gurian-Sherman's study also reports that upon the FDA's completion of a review of corporate-generated data summaries, the FDA does not generate its own safety assessment, but merely summarizes for the public the developers' food-safety analyses. None of the GE crops currently in the market place have ever been FDA approved as safe." The rats will now be scrambling for cover. Jim

We've all known in general terms the failure of institutions like EPA, FDA and USDA to protect the public interest. The truth is STUNNING and significantly worse than anyone feared as explained in this MUST READ book review about an explosive new book. "Such long-standing fraud would hardly come as a surprise to Evaggelos Vallianatos, who toiled for a quarter of a century in the EPA’s Pesticide Division, ostensibly responsible for protecting human health and the environment from commercial poisons. His new book, 'Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA,' documents a culture of fraud and corruption infesting every corner and closet of the agency...one of the fledgling agency’s greatest handicaps was its initial staffing with personnel from USDA, steeped in the religion of corporate agriculture and lethal technologies...Hired as scientists, EPA staffers spent their time cutting and pasting industry studies and conclusions into rubber-stamped registration approvals...audits by FDA and EPA soon found that most of the thousands of industry safety studies used to approve pesticide registrations were fraudulent....'IBT was not a unique case of scientific fraud,' Vallianatos writes, 'it was emblematic of a dark and deviant scientific culture, a ‘brave new science’ with deep roots throughout agribusiness, the chemical industry, universities, and the government.'"

Growing potatoes in pots is increasingly popular and this excellent article gets you off to a fast start. No garden - or small garden - preventing you from growing potatoes? No problem - the answer to this fun quality-of-life issue is CONTAINER GROWING. "... I really missed that first harvest of little, soft, young potatoes. Jet in a new potato from Cairo or Jersey or Cornwall if you like but it will still taste nowhere near as good as the one I can fork out of my own soil and eat an hour later. That sweet, nutty taste and the texture like slicing butter just doesn’t exist in the shop-bought potato, and I wanted it back in my life. The answer has been to start growing them in pots." Container gardening is also good for growing tomatoes, lettuce, herbs and other crops. The 'Smart Bags' we sell are among the very best. Jim

FRESH CLARITY ON GE CROPS FROM AN HONEST SCIENTIST

Friday, 20 February 2015 Category Potatoes in History 0 Comments

F Courageous former Agriculture Canada research scientist Dr. Thierry Vrain elaborates on why the reality behind GE crops is oceans apart from Biotech's fantasia. This article is MUST READ! "I refute the claims of the biotechnology companies that their engineered crops yield more, that they require less pesticide applications, that they have no impact on the environment and of course that they are safe to eat...The Bt corn and soya plants that are now everywhere in our environment are registered as insecticides. But are these insecticidal plants regulated and have their proteins been tested for safety? Not by the federal departments in charge of food safety, not in Canada and not in the U.S...Genetic engineering is 40 years old. It is based on the naive understanding of the genome based on the One Gene – one protein hypothesis of 70 years ago, that each gene codes for a single protein. The Human Genome project completed in 2002 showed that this hypothesis is wrong." Jim

Hats off to the farmers in Poland! Their activist demonstrations are shining a welcome spotlight on modern agriculture-run-amok. Polish farmers are ramping up demonstrations against control-centric GE crops; corporate and Big Money land grabs; broken system farmland tenure, and unjustified faux-hygienic laws and regs which restrict family farmers' access to local markets. "'We demand a legal ban on GM crops in Poland', said one protesting farmer and Solidarity member. 'The value of Polish agriculture, unique in Europe, is the unpolluted environment and high quality food production. That's decisive concerning our competitiveness in global markets'...These actions represent a dramatic escalation of protests that have been simmering across the country over the last year, but especially in the northern provinces.
An immediate cause of discontent has been oppressive 'food hygiene' and other regulations that effectively present small scale farmers from selling their produce on-farm and in local markets, where their mostly organic (if uncertified) produce is widely respected as of higher quality than food gown on modern industrial farms." Go Poland! Jim & Megan

USDA (again) performs the bidding of Biotech despite the remarkable public solidarity AGAINST the vacuous and superficial GE application of faker 'non-browning' apples. Two varieties involved: Granny Smith and Golden Delicious. Though there is production lead time before these unlabeled GE Apples find their way into the food pipeline, it's not too early to let your grocer know that we won't any longer be purchasing ANY conventional non-organic Grannies or Goldens. If the people's interest won't be protected by government 'regulators,' a simple consumer boycott will do the trick. Jim

The cumulative impact of toxic chemicals upon our children is one of the top challenges of our time. This brilliant MUST WATCH short video (7:02) graphically distills the essential problem: we MUST force industry to PROVE their chemicals are NOT TOXIC before they enter the market. The video concludes and empowers our families with '8 Ways to Avoid Exposure to Toxins.' Please WATCH and SHARE widely. "The chemical industry argues that the effect of toxins on children is subtle and of little consequence. But that's misleading. Little shifts in children's IQ scores have a big impact in the number of children who are challenged or gifted." Jim & Megan

In a Cornucopia article, a new EPA report shows neonics - risky for pollinators honey bees - are not doing the job expected of it. This development MUST call into question the wisdom of continuing with neonics if failure is demonstrated. "Now, the Environmental Protection Agency is calling the pesticide’s efficacy into question. After studying 64 test plots of soybeans, the agency did not see a significant difference in yields between those planted with treated seeds and those without treatment. In fact, it found that the treatment was only effective in the soil within the first 3-4 weeks of planting." Jim

A new study exposes GE crops inserted with pesticide-toxins as destined to fail because their Biotech application contradicts scientific reality. "...first, it is impossible to produce transgenic plants, where expression of Cry-proteins in all tissues throughout the entire life cycle would be at the level lethal for the pests; second, in spite of the assumptions based on a low probability of the event, there arise not only dominant mutations of resistance but also recessive mutations that are not associated with the fitness costs; third, in spite of expectations there arises cross-resistance between Cry-proteins from different families."
