WHO warns Zika Virus is spreading “explosively”

With the outbreak of the Zika Virus in much of the southern part of the Western Hemisphere, Americans are wondering what the chance is of an outbreak in the US. RT’s Marina Portnaya visits a micro-biology lab at Miami-Dade College, where Dr. Joe Okungbowa highlights the concern in in South Florida, a “huge network” with ships frequently coming from South America.

Dear Curt:
When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago).

7 GMO Myths Debunked By Vandana Shiva

Vandana Shiva Quote 01Vandana Shiva is an international environmental activist, author and political advocate. She dispels the major points of interest for the GMO industry. Here are the highlights.

Myth 1: GMOs Are an ‘Invention’ of Corporations, Allowing them to Be Patented And Owned.

Seeds and the living organisms they become are dubbed ‘intellectual property’ of the GMO industry. Under these laws they can stop farmers from saving and sharing seeds. The companies are even allowed to collect royalties on any patented product. A representative of Monsanto publicly stated his company wrote the intellectual property agreement of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Farmers were saving seeds, so they made saving seeds illegal.

As nothing is actually created just modified this claim of creation is far fetched. No new plant or organism is created, genes are merely rearranged and cross species Living organisms are exactly that alive. They are self organizing, self replicating systems. If someone moves your furniture they don’t suddenly own that furniture and your new house. GMO companies are trying to get rich off evolution and generations of farmer’s work.

Myth 2: Genetic Engineering Is More Accurate And Precise Than Conventional Breeding.

Conventional breeding have been based on breeding within a single species. The placement of foreign genes in a new host is not accurate. GMOs have a antibiotic resistance built into them to separate cells that have absorbed foreign genes from those that haven’t. Having this antibiotic gene in our digestive track is what is escalating the antibiotic resistance we have been facing.

Myth 3: GMOs Are Just Like Naturally Occurring Organisms, And Are Therefore Safe.

To collect money companies say they are responsible for everything in the plant. To downplay responsibility the same representatives will spin around and say ‘well the plants naturally do that.’ There is no consistency to their argument, and therefore no guarantee of safety.

Myth 4: GMOs Are Based On Cutting-Edge Science; GMO Critics Are “Anti Science.”

Genes are not a set value they shift, change mutate and diversify. To manipulate one corn stalk is not to make the generations after it exactly like it. There are so many genes working together to achieve multiple levels of goals. GMOs are based off partial science and partial ideology. That we not only know better than evolution but have the immediate means to enforce our idea of ‘perfection’. We have no clue and are very limited on what we can test. Im for solid well tested and fully transparent science not what these companies do.

Myth 4: GMOs Increase Yields And Are The Answer to World Hunger.

Conventional breeding techniques have shown direct increases in crop yields. GMO can only defend against pests and weed more aggressively. This was meant to protect the crops so there would be more but now farmers are reporting a rise in new and more aggressive crop antagonists. We started an arms race the we don’t know how to slow down basically. If GMO industries could have cured hunger, why haven’t they? It would certainly regain them support.

Myth 6: GMOs Reduce Chemical Use And Are Therefore Environmentally Beneficial.

Anywhere there is GMOs, more pesticides are being used. Remember that we made them resistant to sprays and that led to stronger weeds and pests, which circles back to stronger chemicals

Myth 7: GMOs Promote Free Choice.

Five international corporations own the free market and write the rules for it nothing is by choice. The only choice is theirs. They may Provide different options but all their vials have the same poison and intent. In India, Monsanto forced only Bt cotton but under multiple names. In the end any form of participation only helps fuel the machine. If it was a freely made choice why are there so many dicey or non existent label issues.
