Why the Tomato Was Feared in Europe for More Than 200 Years A nickname for the fruit was the “poison apple” because it was thought that aristocrats got sick and died after eating them, but the truth of the matter was that wealthy Europeans used pewter plates, which were high in lead content. Because tomatoes are so high in acidity, when placed on this particular tableware, the fruit would leach lead from the plate, resulting in many deaths from lead poisoning. No one made this connection between plate and poison at the time; the tomato was picked as the culprit. (Tuesday June 18th, 2013 — Smithsonian - USA)

Farmed Fish Production Overtakes Beef For The First Time In World History In 2012, world beef production reached 63 million, but it couldn't top the production of fish farming, or aquaculture, which soared to 66 million.

Other groups, like Whole Foods is more complimentary of it -- when done right. (Friday June 14th, 2013 — Huffington Post - USA)

Monsanto Frankenwheat crops-up in Oregon ... a wheat farmer in Eastern Oregon had gotten an unpleasant surprise in May: Some of Monsanto's unapproved, genetically-manipulated wheat suddenly cropped-up in his field. He had never planted any of these Frankenseeds, which have a foreign DNA spliced into them by Monsanto's bio-tamperers. Field tests of the altered wheat were last done in Oregon in 2001, and the seeds never have been cleared for commercial use anywhere in the world. But there they are, sprouting like weeds.

Sugar beet industry converts to 100% GMO, disallows non-GMO option The US sugar beet industry coordinated an industry-wide conversion to genetically modified sugar beets, thus eliminating a non-GMO alternative for food manufacturers and consumers. Meanwhile, production of GM sugar beet seed is likely to contaminate organic and conventional vegetable seed production in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. ... The Willamette Valley is also home to all the sugar beet seed production in the United States. ... Cross pollination between GM sugar beets and related plants, such as chard and table beets, is a major threat ... Seeing no other recourse, Morton joined a lawsuit organized by the Center for Food Safety to sue the US Department of Agriculture for failing to conduct an environmental impact statement (EIS). “USDA didn’t consider the impact on all these farms and markets to where we sell seeds. My markets have zero tolerance to GMOs,” he says. “If there is any GMO contamination, my customers won’t buy the seed. Who is going to pay for that?” (Sunday June 9th, 2013 — The Organic and Non-GMO Report - Fairfield, Iowa USA)

Beekeeping Industry 'Doomed' -- Might We See Destruction of Food Supply Before the End of This Decade? As discussed in Dan Rather’s report, 80 percent of the world’s almonds come from California’s central valley, an 800,000 acre area of almond orchards that are 100 percent dependent on bees pollinating the trees. Surprisingly, almonds are the number one agricultural product in California. Once a year, in late winter, 1.5 million bee hives from around the country are delivered to these orchards where the bees’ pollination efforts take place over the course of just a few days. It’s the largest mass-pollination effort in the world. (Saturday June 8th, 2013 — Mercola.com - USA)

Biotech runs amuck. Again Already, one of the plant tamperers has formed a corporation called BioGlow, to commercialize such things. "Wouldn't you like your beautiful flowers to glow in the dark?" he asks with a maniacal fervor. Uh... no sir. First, they're beautiful as is. Second, there you narcissistic bioengineers go again – screwing with nature. This crew is recklessly spreading untested, synthetic organisms around the world with no idea of how they'll mutate in nature or what malicious, predatory organisms might result. That's not science. That's screwballism. (Friday June 7th, 2013 — Jim Hightower -USA)
