Animal Factory: What are you really eating?

Leave a comment

The book Animal Factory, by David Kirby, takes a close look at factory farms and the problems they cause. In an interview with Time Magazine, Kirby talked about these farms and the appalling lack of government oversight and the outright refusal of government to address these issues.

Among the problems Kirby notes:

“… you’re often no longer feeding animals what they’re genetically designed to eat. CAFO cows eat a diet of milled grains, corn and soybeans, when they are supposed to eat grass.

The food isn’t natural because they very often put growth hormones and antibiotics in it. That becomes a problem when you put that manure on the ground.”

Can you say “agrobacterium”? 

Animal Factory also looks at the fate of the Neuse River in North Carolina, where waste runoff from pig farms caused massive fish die-offs.

What makes a corporate hiney hugger, hug?: Just ask John Block!

A February 20, 2010 article by John Block in the Wisconsin State Journal was quite possibly one of most extreme cases of corporate hiney hugging to come along in quite some time.  After reading this piece, I couldn’t help but wonder how brown Mr. Block’s nose was?  As a result of this obvious collection of disinformation and intentional misinformation; I decided I had to respond.  I have included actual statements from Mr. Block’s article and these appear in blue print and have provided a list of resources to document my response.____________________________

Block: “I left my post as the nation’s 21st secretary of agriculture in 1986, for instance, the average crop yield per acre in the United States was 33.3 bushels per acre for soybeans and 119.4 bushels per acre for corn. As of last year, thanks to the onset of almost revolutionary seed technologies, those yields rose to 39.7 bushels per acre for soybeans and 153.9 acres for corn.”

Mr. Block fails to mention those “revolutionary seed technologies” have come at a massive cost to the environment and that no verifiable evidence exists to substantiate his grandiose claim of 153.9 bushels per acre as a result of forced gmo use.  The only evidence, if you can call it that, of any increase at all was provided by the same companies who developed and sold the seeds and the accompanying chemicals necessary to grow them.

Introducing Aggie – The Traveling Agrobacterium™

Leave a comment

Aggie is a product of genetic engineering. She is used to insert foreign genes into normal plant cells, which grow into genetically modified organisms (GMOs) for companies such as Monsanto.

This process endangers our food supply and health when these GMOs are allowed to grow in the open field.

This site is dedicated to providing educational material regarding these risks in a simple, easy to understand format. You don’t have to be a molecular biologist to understand the process.
