IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)
…the actual theory behind Round-Up Ready usage until I started to really investigate what is going on. According to Take Part, “the logic behind Round-Up Ready crops is rather elegantly simple, if not twisted: Make the crop resistant to a pesticide that might otherwise kill it, allowing farmers to decimate weeds and pests without harming the corn or soy itself.” Makes a lot of sense right? It does or should I say it did, until you find out what is really happening. What is really sad is that we find this information out after the damage has been done to large agricultural preserves. What bothers me the most is that I don’t hear anyone talking about reversing the destruction! What next? What we plan and what we sow are obviously two different things.
Take Part further stated, “that may have worked as planned for a period of time, and a USDA report from 2000 said thanks to the adoption of transgene varieties, “herbicides may be used at lower application rates, require a smaller number of applications, and may be more benign than herbicides required for crops without the herbicide-tolerant genes.” But 13 years later, evolution has run its course and now superbugs and superweeds plague farmers. As a result, herbicide use increased by 11 percent between 1996 and 2011, according to a peer-reviewed paper by Washington State University’s Chuck Benbrook, published in the journal, Environmental Sciences Europe.”
So here we are again back at the same cross roads. Corporate America is winning with an increase in product usage which means more profits in their pockets but America as a whole is losing and further damaging its food supply. Truly, what we plant is what we are sowing.
NYK (Now You Know) …
…that when it comes to the truth about corporate American handling our food supply, if we don’t stand up and be counted, if we don’t stop them at the grocery store check-out counter, we too as a human population will be reaping what we sow. We must stand up and be counted before devastation really begins to hit home. The children of today don’t deserve the devastation that they face tomorrow. We made this mess and we should be responsible for cleaning it up and cleaning it up NOW, not later on. Stay tuned for more information to come. Through education and unity toward the common good for all and not just corporate giants, we can take back our right to good, unadulterated, whole, nutritious food and getting back to letting thy food be thy medicine and thy fellow man and mother nature be thy farmers.
