Contamination Matters – Why GM Crops Can’t Be Managed at a National Level

by GM Freeze The European Union is considering a hugely significant change to the way genetically modified (GM) crops are authorised. Proposals for “national opt-outs” appear to allow individual countries to make their own decisions about whether or not to grow GM, but past experience shows that the risk of cross-border contamination is likely to make a nonsense of national bans.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBo9_LpXp90 Duration: 45 minutes (jump to 03:40 to skip introductions) Little more than a week ago my brother sent this presentation by Bruce Lipton regarding the new science of epigenetics. As a high school biology teacher who had questioned concepts like genetic determinism and junk DNA I found it fascinating. When my wife, the original sceptic, was spell-bound by Bruce I knew we were on to something.

The Woes of Industrial Agriculture

Our relationship with the earth changed fundamentally when we began practicing agriculture some ten thousand years ago. The transition from nomadic to settler life allowed for the evolution of great civilizations, and the growth of human cultures. Agriculture also made possible the increased rise in population, which in turn created the need for more agriculture, and the cyclical relationship between the two put a greater and greater strain on the […]
