The best interviews happen when the interviewer has done her homework and the interviewee is unguarded and speaks the truth on important matters. You decide whether Food Sleuth's talented Melinda Hemmelgarn and Wood Prairie Farm's Jim Gerritsen met the mark in this nationally-sydicated PRX interview (28:00). "'The first thing you have to understand about genetic engineering is that it was not an invention designed to improve production or agriculture. It was an invention to take away from the Commons the ownership of seed. That's the express purpose of genetic engineering.'" Jim & Megan

Fascinating article on the diversity and history of this grand, understated vegetable. Of course, organic farmers have been the ones way ahead of the curve. For over 25 years our Wood Prairie Farm has been growing organic Certified Seed of many unique and colorful potato varieties - suited to organic growing - and getting them planted into fields and gardens across America. "The potato’s champions want to bring this same kind of diversity to the humble spud. 'We’re definitely seeing a trend towards more diversity,' says Shelley Jansky, a longtime potato breeder at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 'I would like all potato varieties marketed by name, people eating more fresh potatoes, thinking about flavor and texture, and realizing that not all potatoes are the same'...Thanks in part to Parmentier, Europe learned to recognize the potato’s nutritional value and adopted it as a solution to widespread famine. Potatoes were easy to sow and harvest, as well as inherently more productive than grains: wheat, rice, corn and barley could only grow so tall and heavy before they fell over; nestled in the ground, tubers could swell to impressive sizes, yielding two to four times more calories per acre."

IOWA FARMERS INITIATE ACTION FOR SELF-DEFENSE.

Across the nation, American family farmers are commonly subject to unwanted and disastrous chemical and transgenic invasion. The lack of an effective system of protection for farmers, their valuable farm crops and their private property rights should be a national scandal. Importantly, if farmers' right to grow good clean crops on their own land remains unprotected, then consumers' right-of-access to clean food FREE FROM CONTAMINATION is in jeopardy. FARMERS IN IOWA HAVE NOW HAD ENOUGH. "The Iowa Farmers Union filed a petition yesterday with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) for rulemaking to improve pesticide drift incident responses, penalties, and support to farmers harmed by pesticide drift. 'Pesticide drift from nearby fields is a very real problem for farmers in Iowa,' says Jordan Scheibel, a diversified vegetable farmer from Grinnell, Iowa. 'Not only can pesticide drift delay or cause a farm to lose its organic certification, it results in products that farmers – certified organic or not – may not be able to sell legally, safely, or in good conscience, and it exposes the farmers and their workers to potentially harmful pesticides.'"

Getting corporate money out of politics is the preeminent foundational reform necessity if we are to save our dysfunctional democracy. This report explains the TIDE IS TURNING and offers signs of hope. "The good news is that a wide cross-section of advocacy organizations are uniting to turn the tide and reclaim our democracy...In the 2014 elections, democracy reformers won real policy and political wins around the country, including grassroots efforts to support amending the Constitution to overturn Citizens United. There are now more 16 states and over 200 resolutions around the country in support of overturning Citizens United – and more than 5 million people have signed a petition supporting the effort. And states like Connecticut, Maine and Arizona are showing that another political system is possible by using a variety of public finance models to reduce the role of big, outside money in 2014, reports Public Campaign."

Our friends in Costa Rica could teach us how a functional democracy works and how the rights of the people should be paramount. " The Central American country of Costa Rica has already made a huge step forward in eliminating GMOs from their food supply as the country’s Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, declared the GMO approval process unconstitutional."

CORNUCOPIA EXPOSES FAKE JARGON DEPLOYED IN EGG MARKETING.

Valuable article dissects the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to marketing terms about eggs. Also, Cornucopia's associated excellent 'Egg Scorecard' is a tool helps us discern which eggs are worth buying. " 'Organic' actually means something very specific, and egg producers who use it are subject to USDA regulation. Organic eggs must come from chickens that are free-range (cage-free plus access to the outdoors), fed organic feed (no synthetic pesticides) and receive no hormones or antibiotics. But as was the case with 'free-range' eggs, Kastel says 'organic' eggs are usually coming from birds that live in crowded, industrial aviaries. His organization has created an 'Egg Scorecard' that rates organic egg farms on a much wider variety of factors." Jim

First, let's begin with the primal lesson about Monsanto: BELIEVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING MONSANTO SAYS. With that truth firmly established in mind, you may properly assimilate this POWERFUL MUST READ article which explains the reality behind the Biotech false 'feeding the masses' schtick. Carefully and relentlessly deploying the baseless 'feeding the masses'. orchestration, Monsanto has CONCOCTED THE ONE SOPHISTICATED TALKING POINT which - if believed by well-intentioned, caring Americans - TRUMPS OUR LEGITIMATE REJECTION OF GE CROPS. "It is their Golden Fact and their universal calling card. And as far as neutrals are concerned it wins the food system debate hands down, because it says, if any other farming system cannot feed the world, it is irrelevant. Only agribusiness can do that. Yet this strategy has a disastrous foundational weakness. There is no global or regional shortage of food. There never has been and nor is there ever likely to be." If you get to just one thing today, PLEASE DO READ AND SHARE THIS ARTICLE WIDELY! Thanks. Jim & Megan

Displaying characteristic disinterest and disrespect for what people eat, Monsanto hes a new pesticide-in-every bite in store for you and your family. Jim.

"Such RNAi-based pesticides are genetically engineered and work through silencing or otherwise interfering with genes in the target pest, to kill it or render it ineffective.

The danger of these products is that genes in non-target organisms, including the consumers of the food crop sprayed with the pesticide, might be silenced or their expression altered, too."

BIOTECH UTILIZES NEW DEVIOUS TECHNIQUE DESIGNED TO EVADE REGULATORY REVIEW.

Yes, the current 'regulatory' system of GE crops is an absolute abomination. However, even this highly suspect, inadequate and dysfunctional revolving-door 'regulatory' system of GE crops is BETTER THAN ZERO PUBLIC DISCLOSURE & REVIEW which is the slight-of-hand lawlessness Biotech gaming has achieved by "Gene-Editing." The government's fained plea of "no jurisdiction" - amid the CLEAR POLITICAL DECISION to treat all GE crops with kid gloves - rings hollow and disingenuous. This timely and pithy 'GM Watch' response is in reference is to a recent NY Times article by Andrew Pollack (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/02/business/energy-environment/a-gray-area-in-regulation-of-genetically-modified-crops.html?smid=li-share&_r=2). "'Genome editing techniques must be recognised as the GM procedures that they are, so that they are covered by existing GMO regulations, where they exist. Currently they are falling outside the already minimal regulatory system in the USA and Europe is debating how and even whether to regulate them under its GMO laws.'" Jim

Dr. Ignatio Chapela offers this MUST READ insight. "Genetic engineering has become an ideology similar to a religion, says Ignacio Chapela, a microbial ecologist at the University of California at Berkeley...'The whole foundation of genetics turns out to be wrong,' he said. 'Eye color is not determined by a single gene. DNA is not a master molecule. We have the benefit of 40 years (of GMOs failing) and should liberate ourselves from the central dogma. How many (GMO) traits have they developed? Two after 40 years'...Despite being based on an obsolete paradigm, genetic engineering continues to be pushed by a political agenda. 'The policy (of the US government) has been to remove limitations to biotech,' he said...There needs to be a holistic perspective to agriculture, which is badly missing with genetic engineering. 'The knowledge that a farmer has is as important as the soil, and seeds can’t be seen in isolation,' Chapela said." The courageous Dr. Chapella has been the victim of a Biotech character assassination campaign. Jim

We know and respect the three Midwestern farm leaders who have jointly authored this MUST READ article. "Scientists have a responsibility to be objective when assessing the validity of conflicting beliefs. Government bureaucrats are responsible for protecting public interests even under conditions of uncertainty. In reality, there is not yet clear or compelling evidence to either convict or acquit GMOs of the indictments reflecting growing public concerns. Scientists in much of the rest of the world are willing to admit this reality. Their government officials are taking a precautionary approach to protecting the environment and public health from potential risks posed by GMOs. Scientists and bureaucrats in the United States have few global allies in their beliefs, other than those with conflicts of interest through corporate connections." Jim

CLIMATE CHANGE, "PLURALISTIC IGNORANCE," THE NEED FOR COLLECTIVE EMERGENCY ACTION AND THE PLEDGE TO MOBILIZE.

Powerful, landmark MUST READ explanation of our societal inaction over climate change. "...the state of pluralistic ignorance 'in which each person decides that since nobody is concerned, nothing is wrong. Meanwhile, the danger may be mounting to the point where a single individual, uninfluenced by the seeming calm of others, would react'...Fortunately, the research on pluralistic ignorance and crisis response provides excellent guidance for how to overcome this trance of collective denial. The research shows that humans are actually strongly motivated to act in a crisis—as long as they are sure that there is a crisis and that they have a role in solving it...The Pledge provides a bridge between individual and collective action—the actions that Pledgers agree to are all social and political in nature: things that one person can do to influence the group."

BREAKING NEWS! FAMILY FARMERS FILE MOTION-TO-INTERVENE IN DEFENSE OF CITIZEN BAN ON GE CROPS IN OREGON'S JACKSON COUNTY.

Yesterday, our farmer allies in Jackson County petitioned the Court in an attempt to help defend last May's overwhelming local citizen's referendum ban on the growing of GE crops. Monsanto, Syngenta and other self-serving accomplices - void of respect for the democratic process - are the cloaked power behind the court challenge. Now the real question: WILL THE COURTS PROTECT CITIZENS' RIGHT-TO-SELF-DEFENSE? Will the courts allow the people to create protection for local family farmers from unrestrained and unwanted GE trespass and pollution created by the patented technology of aggressive, unrepentant, outsider multinational Biotech corporations unwilling to restrain their transgenic pollution? "Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to our legal fund and has been helping to collect donations. Thanks to you, OFFC and CFS have together raised more than $25,000 in a little more than a month! That said, we are still working to raise another $5,000 for the first phase of the litigation. So… if you haven’t donated yet, please join in the fun today and make a donation on-line to Our Family Farms Coalition, or a tax deductible donation to Center For Food Safety that will be used only to support this case." Please join us and help our Oregon allies by making a donation TODAY. Thanks! Jim & Megan

Anti-social bullies use aggression to get their way. However, the contempt Biotech corporations have for the democratic process is stunning and their threats expose them as crude malevolent self-serving power players. "The ordinance, passed in May 2014, creates a genetically engineered crop free zone to protect local farmers from transgenic contamination...In May, voters in Jackson County overwhelmingly approved measure 15-119 by a 66 percent to 34 percent margin. The bi-partisan supported victory came despite a wave of opposition funding from the chemical industry, topping out at nearly $1 million in opposition spending. Agricultural biotechnology interests have now challenged the Ordinance in court...'When I learned that Syngenta was growing genetically engineered sugar beets close to my farm, I had little choice but to tear up the crops I was already growing that were likely to be contaminated,' explained Chris Hardy, a Jackson County farmer and chief petitioner who filed the ballot measure. 'No farmer should have to worry about whether a patented product of Monsanto is going to drift onto their property and threaten their farm.'" Chris Hardy is an active member of Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA). Jim

IS THE MOTIVATION BEHIND BIOTECH'S 'GOLDEN RICE' IN REALITY ITS PROPAGANDA VALUE RATHER THAN SERVING THE NEEDS OF THE POOR?

The FIRST rule - the default position - which history has taught us over and over is this: DO NOT BELIEVE BIOTECH. Biotech's campaign of lies and self-serving propaganda are so expansive, so relentless, that their word has ZERO value. Now, respected Canadian organic researcher Dr Brenda Frick examines the issues surrounding 'Golden Rice.' "Vitamin A deficiency is devastating among people who depend on rice as their only major food source. The deficiency leads to night blindness, delayed development, total blindness and eventually death. It is a widespread failure of the food system for the poor. True, making rice more nutritious might prevent specific deficiencies, but how much more appropriate would it be to reduce these people’s dependence on rice as their only food...'For vulnerable rural families, for instance in Africa and Southeast Asia, growing fruits and vegetables in home gardens complements dietary diversification and fortification and contributes to better lifelong health,' says the World Health Organization...Organic methods of growing food are widely recognized as offering the best potential to increase yields on small holdings without poisoning the food and the environment and relying on expensive first world inputs...It is hard to see how entering into a patent protected process with powerful first world companies will increase African or Asian farmers’ ability to secure viable options."

Vandana implores these democratic leaders to stand up for the people and to resist corporate oppression Through the granting of unjust patents and resultant theft from the Common including biopiracy. "We, as concerned and democratic citizens of India, and the US, welcome the coming together of two of the largest democracies of the world to work together to protect the rights of their citizens and their biodiversity. Both nations were founded on the principles of freedoms of our people, and the unacceptability of colonialism and subservience to Empire...We write this letter in the spirit of Swaraj-of Bija Swaraj (Seed Freedom) and Anna Swaraj (Food Democracy), with the hope that your visit to India will enhance and deepen the common freedoms of the people of India and the US, not the freedoms of the Corporations undermining the freedoms of citizens in both countries.. Methods of agriculture and plants were excluded from patentability in the Indian patent act to ensure that seed, the first link in the food chain, was held as a common property resource in the public domain and farmers’ inalienable right to save, exchange and improve seed was not violated...Let us work toward a future where our food is our freedom."

This rebuttal to the assault is MUST READ! It should be a wake up call for every American when shrill Biotech character assassination makes its way into an iconic and formerly respectable national magazine. As an imposter of journalism, this well-placed propaganda - which by design misinformed the reader - is unconscionable and elicits the warning, 'Follow the money' "The dangers posed by GMOs are a mainstream concern, and the debate over their safety and value to society is far from over. Specter's failure to acknowledge this undermines his argument in support of GMOs and harms The New Yorker's reputation for quality journalism. Specter roots his critique of Dr. Shiva in easily disproven myths that are commonly repeated by the biotech industry, Monsanto Company and other GMO producers (Monsanto et al.), and their supporters... In fact, New Yorker editor David Remnick apologized to Dr. Shiva after Specter erroneously wrote that Dr. Shiva only had a bachelor's degree in physics. In fact, she has a master's degree in physics and a PhD in the philosophy of science. As such, she takes into account the scientific facts against GMOs and – unlike Monsanto – also weighs the moral questions."

BIOTECH TRASHS YET ANOTHER US FARM EXPORT CROP - THIS TIME GE-CONTAMINATED ALFALFA HAY.

Wednesday, 17 December 2014 Category Potatoes in History 0 Comments

America is learning a costly and painful lesson about not supplying their customers with what they want. First it was corn, now China and the world market are INCREASINGLY REJECTING AMERICAN ALFALFA HAY EXPORTS CONTAMINATED WITH UNWANTED GE MATERIAL. As a result, crop prices are dropping and export markets are contracting. Farmers and traders with their backs to the wall are going to court to force liability upon the Biotech polluters who own the patented GE technology. "It wasn't long ago that China was regularly cited by GMO lobbyists as the ever-hungry and ever-expanding market for GMOs. No more: GM alfalfa follows on from GM corn as the latest GMO to cause China to reject shipments from the US...there is evidence biotech genes have spread to non-biotech crops.... Roughly 30 per cent of U.S. alfalfa seed sold in the U.S. is genetically modified, according to Monsanto...The USDA in 2011 authorized farmers to plant Roundup Ready alfalfa without restrictions. Critics had fought in court to block the alfalfa, charging that it could transfer by pollen to non-biotech crops including organic alfalfa - a scenario some suggest is happening now." The "critics'" warnings were right: Biotech in concert with USDA has released an out-of-control maelstrom.

In nothing short of an unmitigated disaster for the democratic process, officials in Oregon have failed their citizens and failed the American people by refusing to count valid ballots which would likely had brought about a clean victory for the Measure 92, the Right-to-Know GMO Labeling referendum. Yes-on-92 leaders this week had filed an emergency lawsuit and sought a restraining order to prevent official certification of the partial, uncompleted vote tally. Presiding "Judge Kantor agreed that leaving 4,600 ballots uncounted in this election will cause irreparable harm to those voters and to the Measure 92 campaign." However, the judge ultimately ruled that his interpretation of Oregon law did not empower him to stop the process This bitter electoral system failure represents a gross miscarriage of justice. With electoral integrity being the highest law, this failure of the State ought to be reversed by whatever means, and all 4600 ballots in question must be counted. If Oregon officials refuse to count every vote, thereby causing "irreparable harm," then there must be an annulment of the referendum vote. That's simple justice. That's what American citizens expect. And that's what members of an open democracy should expect, and nothing less. Jim
