You know, veritis is the one best off, it's, I'm sure more comfortable to not believe than know and have no power to change the practice of Gyphosate in our food or avoid eating, knowing it is there.

This is kook stuff. When was the last time you can remember having a fear of starvation?

You guys are complete nuts. But that is okay. Many of you are also friends.

That is what counts. We certainly won't agree on everything.

I have mentioned this before- our industrial farming methods are doing more harm than good.

______________

Anresco Laboratories in San Francisco just launched and they are using an innovative way to test for pesticide residues. Utilizing a regulatory recognized LC/MS/MS method, available to both non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and commercial companies, Anresco is able to find glyphosate in levels much lower than the standard, ‘high detection’ test rate of 20 parts per billion (ppb) and above.

LC/MS/MS, or liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry, is considered the gold standard for both quantification and semi-quantitative screening of food contaminants, such as pesticide residues. This is meaningful because the technology allows the lab to test for levels as low as 5 ppb, and in some cases, even lower. With many food and soil samples, LC/MS/MS allows for detection and quantification down to 2 ng/g with recoveries between 70 and 90 percent. This translates to 2 nanograms per billion, or comparatively, like finding a needle in a haystack if the needle was a blade of grass and the haystack was an entire solar system.


If as I believe , the megacorps must die for freedom to live, let it start with Monsanto. Sue them out of existence or fine them while not fining the competition

We can grow healthier food. Where should acceptoble levels of toxins be ? Obviously if it were the only food available it wouldn't matter. But it's not. When Peter mentions the farming techniques he's referring to a whole list of things that Monsanto et al have been doing, gradually, over decades. Monoculture farming CANNOT be sustainable on the massive scale we use it. But corn is king and subisidized to death, our death. Many of the plants we see as our main sources of food can be finicky to grow and are incredably frost intolerant while the weeds that used to make up part of our diet require little care and start growing way before the last frost. Now the SEED is patented. Yes, they patented SEED. And they are slowly trying to make us dependent upon factory farm food. Speifically Tyson, Purdue, Cargill and Monsanto factory farm food. For example did you know that the Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio you might take supplements for exist, in part, because we feed cattle corn instead of grass. Corn the government subsidized and backed to the point of destroying any supposed free market . If you don't find that alarming you don't understand.

Sustainable farming now comes out ahead of commercial factory farming especially considering the chances of crop failure in the commercial factory farms. But there are right ways and wrong ways to do sustainable farming, and in the rare instances of food poisoning coming from sustainable farms it was due to short cuts that definitely fall in the wrong way to do sustainable farming.

Founded in 2009, Earth Open Source is a non-profit organization incorporated in the U.K. but international in scope. Its three directors, specializing in business, technology and genetic engineering, work pro-bono along with a handful of young volunteers. Partnering with half a dozen international scientists and researchers, the group drew its conclusions in part from studies conducted in a number of locations, including Argentina, Brazil, France and the United States.
