Tests Show Most Store Honey Isn’t Honey

More than three-fourths of the honey sold in U.S. grocery stores isn’t exactly what the bees produce, according to testing
done exclusively for Food Safety News...
The results show that the pollen frequently has been filtered out of products labeled “honey.”
Food Safety News decided to test honey sold in various outlets after its earlier investigation found U.S. groceries flooded
with Indian honey banned in Europe as unsafe because of contamination with antibiotics, heavy metal and a total lack of pollen
which prevented tracking its origin…

Monsanto Interests Guide U.S. Diplomacy, WikiLeaks Cables Show

Monsanto and other biotech giants have been pushing genetically modified crops around the globe, but new diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks last week make it clear how entangled our government is in corporate agricultural interests….

A 2008 cable summarizes a French documentary, “The World According to Monsanto,” that attacks the U.S. biotech regime, including the “revolving door” between Monsanto and the U.S. government which has allowed little government oversight over biotech products. The cable reads:

The film argues that Monsanto exerted undue influence on the USG. Former Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman is interviewed saying he had felt that he was under pressure and that more tests should have been conducted on biotech products before they were approved. Jeffrey Smith, Director, Institute for Responsible Technology, who is interviewed says that a number of Bush Administration officers were close to Monsanto, either having obtained campaign contributions from the company or having worked directly for it: John Ashcroft, Secretary of Justice, received contributions from Monsanto when he was reelected, as did Tommy Thompson, Secretary of Health; Ann Veneman, Secretary of Agriculture, was director of Calgene which belonged to Monsanto; and Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense, was CEO of Searle, a Monsanto subsidiary; and Justice Clarence Thomas was a former lawyer for Monsanto….

Time is running out….

The structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market competition and financial stability. So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. A recent Cornell University study presents the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. They found that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions.

This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers….

Why is American Milk Banned in Europe?

milk-bottle

  • American dairy milk is genetically-modified unless it’s labeled “NO rBGH”
  • Genetically-engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH) in milk increases cancer risks.

American dairy farmers inject rBGH to dairy cows to increase milk production.

European nations and Canada have banned rBGH to protect citizens from IGF-1 hazards.

Monsanto Co., the manufacturer of rBGH, has influenced U. S. product safety laws permitting the sale of unlabeled rBGH milk. (Monsanto would lose billions of dollars if rBGH were banned in America.) …
