GMOs Set to Crush Export Markets for Farmers across Ghana

http://sustainablepulse.com/2016/01/05/gmos-set-to-crush-export-markets-for-farmers-across-ghana/#.Vp5szvl97IU

The Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) has already warned of detrimental consequences on Ghana’s non-traditional exports (NTEs) should the country adopt genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into crops grown locally. The issues which GEPA raised included the health and other risk concerns regarding GMOs across Europe where the bulk of Ghana’s NTEs are exported to and new concerns amongst consumers in the United States, which are affecting sales of GMOs and pushing consumer preference to non-GMO foods.

Kenyan Farmers Sue Government to Stop Lifting of GMO Ban

http://spul.se/1PhnLKu

The Kenya Small Scale Farmers Forum, argues that lifting the ban will adversely undermine their rights and the public rights to health, safety and economic interest. The group further argues that the public has not been well educated on the risks posed by GMOs to enable informed decisions.

Argentinian Study: Tampons, Sanitary Pads and Sterile Gauze Contaminated with Probable Carcinogen Glyphosate

http://detoxproject.org/argentinian-study-tampons-sanitary-pads-and-sterile-gauze-contaminated-with-probable-carcinogen-glyphosate/

One hundred percent of the raw cotton and sterile cotton gauze contained glyphosate (a probably carcinogenic herbicide according to the World Health Organization) or its metabolite AMPA, according to a study by the Socio-Environmental Interaction Space (EMISA) of the University of La Plata, Argentina. Cotton swabs, wipes, tampons and sanitary pads were also found to contain glyphosate and AMPA.

I personally think using angel secrets sanitary pad is very healthy, because it is free of fluorescent and bleaching agent and anti microbial. IT IS A SEVEN LAYERS` BUILT IN SYSTEM. And of course what we women need is ANTI-BACTERIAL SUPER ABSORBENT AND HIGHLY BREATHABLE AND HYGIENIC SANITARY NAPKIN.. FOR MORE INFORMATION EMAIL BELTOSH 92@GMAIL.COM.

WHO Glyphosate Report Ends Thirty Year Cancer Cover Up

http://sustainablepulse.com/2015/03/26/who-glyphosate-report-ends-thirty-year-cancer-cover-up/#.VoL6Efl97IU7

The thirty-year glyphosate cancer cover up will go down in history as yet another failure, by the U.S. government, the EPA and worldwide regulators, to put the health of the general public before the need to protect and expand company profits.

Roundup Linked to Global Boom in Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

http://sustainablepulse.com/2014/02/19/roundup-linked-global-boom-celiac-disease-gluten-intolerance/#.Vn7lEfl97IU

“All of the known biological effects of glyphosate – cytochrome P450 inhibition, disruption of synthesis of aromatic amino acids, chelation of transition metals, and antibacterial action – contribute to the pathology of celiac disease,” Samsel and Seneff’s paper states.

Monsanto Cuts 16% of Work Force as Sales in Roundup Herbicide Fall 34%

http://sustainablepulse.com/2016/01/07/monsanto-cuts-16-of-work-force-as-sales-in-roundup-herbicide-fall-34/#.Vp-mlPl97IU

Monsanto has been struggling for investor confidence following the announcement in March 2015 that the World Health Organisation’s cancer agency had declared the world’s most widely used weedkiller – glyphosate – a “probable human carcinogen”.

Glyphosate is the base of Monsanto’s whole business model;

a) the glyphosate-based herbicide ‘Roundup’ is Monsanto’s leading product.

b) Roundup is the herbicide that the majority of Monsanto’s GM crops are designed to be grown with.

Swiss Supermarkets Stop Sales of Glyphosate over Health Concerns

http://sustainablepulse.com/2015/06/03/swiss-supermarkets-stop-sales-of-glyphosate-over-health-concerns/#.Vo0vLfl97IU

Coop stated that “Even if the (Swiss) Federal Office for Agriculture (BLW) judges glyphosate can be continued to be sold without a health hazard for the population, we decided on Monday 18th May to no longer sell any glyphosate-based products in Coop supermarkets and Coop Building & Hobby hardware stores.” It is a preventive measure. “…we don’t sell the concentrate, but only a very diluted form, the ready-made products. These concentrations are up to 48 times lower than the range used in agricultural products.

GMOs and Glyphosate Discovered in Kellogg’s Froot Loops

http://sustainablepulse.com/2015/01/29/gmos-glyphosate-discovered-kelloggs-froot-loops/#.VoL65Pl97IU

“We find it disturbing that Kellogg’s is feeding children unlabeled GMOs and toxic herbicides. Statistics show that this is the first generation of children that are sicker than their parents. Is Kellogg’s endangering our children? Based on the growing body of scientific evidence, we believe so and we hold Kellogg’s accountable. Parents need to know what they’re feeding their children, and Kellogg’s is spending millions to keep the composition of their products hidden,” says Diana Reeves, Executive Director of GMO Free USA and mother of 3.

Venezuela Bans GM Crops with New Seed Law

Venezuelan lawmakers approved last Wednesday a new law that will impose stricter regulations on hybrid seeds and ban transgenic seed research.

The Seed Law will also launch a National Seed System as the central body to implement the law and monitor and sanction any agricultural violations, with a focus on the protection of traditional seeds.

Pope Francis Slams GMOs and Pesticides for Environmental and Social Damage

The spread of these (GM) crops destroys the complex web of ecosystems, decreases diversity in production and affects the present and the future of regional economies. In several countries there is a trend in the development of oligopolies in the production of seeds and other products needed for cultivation, and the dependence deepens when you consider the production of sterile seeds, which end up forcing farmers to buy (seeds) from producers.
