Pope Francis Slams GMOs and Pesticides for Environmental and Social Damage

June 16, 2015, sustainablepulse.com | “On the subject of GMOs Pope Francis states; ‘It is difficult to give an overall judgment on the development of genetically modified organisms (GMO), plant or animal, for medical purposes or in agriculture, since they can be very different and require different considerations.  Although we do not have definitive evidence about the damage that transgenic cereals could cause to humans, and in some regions their use has produced economic growth that has helped solve some problems, there are significant problems that should not be minimized.”

Organic farming is financially-sustainable worldwide, study finds

June 10, 2015, www.csmonitor.com | “A recently published meta-analysis of 44 scientific studies shows that organic farming is not only environmentally sustainable, but also financially competitive when compared to conventional farming. Organic sales grew 170 percent to US$63 billion from 2002 to 2011 worldwide, but the analysis’s authors note that organic agriculture currently occupies only 1 percent of global cropland. The good news is that there is room for organic agriculture to continue to spread, and the authors predict that profitability of organic farming will continue to outpace conventional models.”

Swiss Supermarkets Stop Sales of Glyphosate over Health Concerns

June 3, 2015, sustainablepulse.com | “Coop stated last week 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.'”

June 3, 2015, wakeup-world.com | “In an era where big money is tossed around by biotech and pesticide behemoths like Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow, DuPont and others to defeat laws restricting GMOs, it’s heartening to see grassroots anti-GMO efforts making headway. The latest example involves an American federal court ruling upholding a Jackson County, Oregon ban on genetically engineered crops.”

Farmers Are Figuring Out They Can Make Bank Growing Non-GMO Crops

GMO SoybeansApril 20, 2015, www.takepart.com | “There’s one on the edge of nearly every corn-belt town in the Midwest. Towering high above the flat landscape, the grain elevator is often the tallest structure around, save, perhaps, for a water tower. It’s here, really, that the industrial food chain starts—where the harvests of countless family farms comingle, the dent corn or soy shifting from plant to commodity. A farmer sells his or her crop to the elevator, and then the elevator sells the harvest of numerous farmers to food companies, ethanol distilleries, or whoever else is in the market for vast amounts of commodity grain.”
