-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


We need to protect the environment better, from companies and governments that are not doing an adequate job in the preservation of the environment.

What can we do as a civilization, to ensure that corrupt politicians and greedy corporations do not harm our planet, with harmful synthetic chemicals and pesticides  that end up being recalled after they are out on the market.

The people need to start holding many politicians responsible, and start prosecuting officials
that are taking bribes to endanger humans, animals and the planet.

Neotame: Threat to Organics Sponsored by Monsanto or Internet Hoax? -

http://www.cornucopia.org/2011/01/neotame-threat-to-organics-sponsored-by-monsanto-or-internet-hoax/

Is Neotame Allowed in Organics?

    While some writers have made the claim that neotame is allowed in organic foods, there does not appear to be any supporting evidence for this. Ditto for the rumor that it doesn’t have to be listed on the label. For example, according to a recent article on Sott.netv:

Weakened by the real estate collapse in the early 1990s, it was acquired

by Chemical Bank in 1996, retaining the Chase name. Before its merger with J.P. Morgan & Co., the new Chase expanded the investment and asset management groups through two acquisitions. )

Genetically Modified Tires  -

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444097904577539012713121388.html

High yielding, genetically modified crops have transformed the economics of U.S. farming. But they also pack an unexpected punch: Their tougher stalks are puncturing tires and stranding farm equipment in the field.

Iowa corn and soybean farmer Mark Dimit said tire damage from the prior season's corn and soybean stalks, much tougher in GM crops, repeatedly brought spring planting to a standstill on his 4,000-acre farm near Grinnell two years ago.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the research on the practices of Monsanto is thoroughly reviewed, we can clearly see that there is a problem with the Monsanto Company. We should not jeopardize and risk the safety of the planet, in order for some individuals to profit off of the destruction of the environment, while doing hazardous open air experiments on this planet. The Monsanto Company needs to be shut down, and face criminal charges of endangering the planet.


The people of the world have spoken, and the people do not want companies such as Monsanto to continue harming this planet.  

It is debated if GMOs in general are harmful or not. That also depends on how you use the term genetically modified organism.

Natural selective breeding of plants may not be harmful, when the genetics are altered through natural cross-breeding. However, when artificially inserted genes are spliced into the genetic makeup of a plant, this can be an environmental hazard if these genetically modified plants start cross-pollinating with other species in the wild.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is good to live as naturally as possible, including eating as naturally as possible. Would the world be better off if people just farmed organically, such as for the past thousands of years, people have farmed organically. Only until recently, have humans started to experiment with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Many of these synthetic
chemicals are also now being linked to damaging the environment and waterways.

StarLink is a corn variety that has been genetically modified to contain an insecticidal protein derived from a naturally occurring bacterium (Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the gene-spliced variety of yellow corn in 1998 for use only as animal feed and set a zero-tolerance level for its use in human food based on the fact that this particular Bt protein does not break down easily in the human digestive system, is heat resistant, and could prove allergenic.

 Many organisations and people have accused the Monsanto Company of environmental terrorism.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Environmental terrorism is the unlawful destruction of resources in order to deprive others of its use. The term also refers to the unnecessary destruction of the environment for personal gain. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_terrorism

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

While many organisations accuse Monsanto of environmental terrorism. We should educate others about extremist groups that use violence.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do extremist tactics push environmentalism forwards or backwards? - http://www.ted.com/conversations/11755/do_extremist_tactics_push_envi.html

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The best thing we can do as a civilization, is to legally shutdown corporations such as Monsanto, including holding government officials accountable for their actions. In order to properly stop a corporation such as Monsanto, there must be enough public support from the people. When enough people take the right action, we can accomplish many good things for the planet.

However, even after the March against Monsanto, the same politicians such as Barack Obama, are still allowing Monsanto to continue to jeopardize the safety of the environment.

Biohacking & Genome Compiler -
 http://techcrunch.com/2013/05/26/cambrian-genome-compiler/

A pair of companies in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood and Tel Aviv are positioning themselves as the “Wintel” of the bio-hacking era. One company, called Genome Compiler, builds software for designing synthetic life forms, while the other, Cambrian Genomics, is experimenting with ways to cheaply laser print DNA.
Like the old Microsoft-Intel relationship of the PC era, they believe they have the symbiotic relationship necessary to usher in a new era where anybody can inexpensively create their own life forms. Genome Compiler is backed with $3 million in funding, including $2 million from Autodesk. Cambrian is funded by Founders Fund, Felicis Ventures and Draper Associates.
“We are democratizing creation,” said Genome Compiler co-founder Omri Amirav-Drory. “Cells are nothing more than a computer, running a program and the program is the genetic code. The code is DNA. The software are the chromosomes. The hardware is the wetware.”
Using Drory’s software, a person can load up existing sequences for different life forms like plants and then manipulate them by inserting or taking out various genes. It corrects the code for basic errors like not having three codes for an amino acid or having a stop and a start code in the wrong place.
“Wouldn’t it be nice in the future if someone could just load up a tree’s genetic code, drag another app from a file and make it glow in the dark?” said Amirav-Drory, who was a post-doc at Stanford University after completing a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Tel Aviv University in Israel.
In theory they could eventually build an app store where a Genome Compiler user could buy access to genetic code that might make a plant cells like a banana. One Kickstarter project which I wrote about last month is already using the software to create a glow-in-the-dark plant. The seemingly far-fetched aspiration is to eventually replace street lights with the more renewable solution of glowing trees.

Climate & Geoengineering - http://www.etcgroup.org/issues/climate-geoengineering

Geoengineering is the intentional, large-scale technological manipulation of the Earth’s systems, often discussed as a techno-fix for combating climate change. Climate geoengineering technologies can be divided into three broad areas: so-called solar radiation management (reflecting sunlight to space), greenhouse gas removal and sequestration and weather modification.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 We should be cautious of new technologies being used for weather modification, including geoengineering.

Bio-pharmaceuticals & Transgenic plants

------------

 

 

 What if it could be possible to cure many diseases such as cancer, or almost any disease you can think of, through bio-pharmaceuticals from plants, which cannot be chemically produced by hand.

Many scientists could have a legitimate reason to experiment with bio-pharmaceuticals from plants, to find cures for many diseases.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/226718.php

"Medicines from plants" - one thinks of herbal teas or valerian drops. However, that has nothing in common with what the researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME in Aachen, Germany, are doing. They use plants to produce biopharmaceuticals. Those are proteins that, unlike many other medications, cannot be chemically produced.

Biologically produced medications, such as recombinant insulin or therapeutic antibodies to fight cancer, have become indispensable. Plants are particularly suitable for producing complex active substances. The reason is that these substances can be produced inexpensively and on a large scale in plants. Compared to producing them in animal cells, plants have the advantage that they grow quickly, are easy to look after and can be protected well against damaging influences.

Plant hormone   - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plant_hormone

Potential medical applications

Plant stress hormones activate cellular responses, including cell death, to diverse stress situations in plants. Researchers have found that some plant stress hormones share the ability to adversely affect human cancer cells. For example, sodium salicylate has been found to suppress proliferation of lymphoblastic leukemia, prostate, breast, and melanoma human cancer cells. Jasmonic acid, a plant stress hormone that belongs to the jasmonate family, induced death in lymphoblastic leukemia cells. Methyl jasmonate has been found to induce cell death in a number of cancer cell lines.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Commonly occurring plant flavonoids have estrogenic activity.

 A remarkable diversity of naturally occurring and synthetic compounds have been shown to mimic the biological effects of 17 beta-estradiol by virtue of their ability to bind to and activate the nuclear estrogen receptor. This report extends the family of nonsteroidal estrogens to include several multiply hydroxylated chalcones, flavanones, and flavones. The hormone-like activity of these natural plant products is indicated by their ability to stimulate an estrogen receptor-dependent transcriptional response and to promote growth of estrogen-dependent MCF7 cells in culture. The transcriptional response can be inhibited by the steroidal estrogen antagonist ICI-164,384 and is specific for the estrogen receptor.

 The wide distribution of weakly estrogenic flavonoid pigments in food crops and medicinal plants raises additional questions about the possible health risks and benefits of these compounds, meriting closer examination of their presence in the human diet.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

There's many examples of how it could be possible to use bioengineering technology, such as stem cells, to create new organs for people. However, some people still question if certain types of bioengineering, or bad types of genetic modification of certain organisms done in experiments, could still be a hazard to the environment.  Currently, we can see many of the problems with bad genetic modification of organisms, from companies such as Monsanto.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Many people think that we should not experiment with genetically modified organisms. Many people also believe that humans should not change the genetic makeup of what nature intended in plants and animals. Some think that we should not genetically modify plants with the artificial splicing of genes, and that this could harm the environment over a period of time, with bad genetic engineering experiments. Such as the cross-pollination of an untested genetically modified organism, or a transgenic plant that could be hazardous to the ecosystem, or even carcinogenic to organisms that eat it.


The problem with bad genetic modifications of a plant, is when you add an ingredient such as an insecticide into the genetic makeup of a plant, so that it kills targeted insects that bite the plant. If these plants with insecticide start to cross-pollinate into the wild, this could cause an imbalance in the ecosystem if insects eat these hazardous plants. 

As a civilization, we need to take steps to ensure that bad genetically modified organisms do not escape into the wild and breed with other species. However, this has already happened on many occasions. We can also see the problems with many of the current synthetic chemicals out on the market these days. This makes people question if certain types of synthetic chemicals are even sustainable. 


When we talk about the possibilities of good and bad things that can happen with genetic modification, biotechnology, synthetic biology and geoengineering, the possibilities are basically limitless. One person could spend a lifetime, with a disciplinary study of a field of knowledge, and still not scientifically understand many of the implications and variables that are associated with these subjects.

We should be aware of the harm that can be caused to the environment, with the releasing of synthetic organisms into the environment.

Some people have called for a moratorium on genetic engineering. However, would this stop many governments, companies and individuals from doing unauthorized and illegal tests? Could a moratorium on genetic engineering stop many good inventions that could help the planet?

We should not release certain chemicals into the wild that could possibly cause harm to the environment, over an extended period of time. We should not we be allowing companies to mass-produce many chemicals that are often recalled. If we do not know the results that certain chemicals will have on the environment, hundreds of years from now, then we need to be careful of what we release into the environment, as a civilization. This is why chemicals such as DDT, PCBs, including certain types of antifreeze, should have never been legalized for commercial production.

It is often debated if it would be better for this planet, if we stopped the production of genetically modified organisms. As a civilization, we need to be certain that genetically modified organisms would not cause harm to the environment, including living organisms. Many people are currently concerned if rogue scientists would still try to conduct experiments with genetically modified organisms, if there were a moratorium on the production of genetically modified organisms. 

We need to ban the use of genetically modified organisms in the use of food for humans and animals. Currently, we can see enough problems with genetically modified organisms in food, to where we should call for a ban on the use of GMOs in food. This would also be debated if we should ban genetically modified organisms, including genetically modified organisms in medicines and in agriculture or soil production. Some people claim that if we used synthetic biology properly, that it could even save the world. An example would be the use to synthetic chemicals that could biodegrade properly, that could be used for soil in farming, to producing products such as plastics and clothing materials. However, we can see the problems with many of the synthetic chemicals out on the market currently. Many synthetic chemicals do not biodegrade properly. Many of these synthetic chemicals are often banned and recalled. This leaves many to question if we should ban more synthetic chemicals out on the market. It could be possible to make petrochemicals from plant material, such as from sugar cane. Some synthesized chemicals can biodegrade properly in the wild, if manufactured correctly. If we synthesized certain biodegradable and non-toxic type of petrochemicals from plant material, into biodegradable items, such as biodegradable plastics. This would be a good example of how it is possible to synthesize petrochemicals that could biodegrade properly.

Defend Against DNA Destruction

October, 2012

Xanthophylls are concentrated in yellow, orange, and deep green leafy vegetables.13,14 Epidemiological studies show that people who consume large amounts of fruit and vegetables have lower rates of cancer and other DNA damage-related diseases.15,16 But studies that take a closer look show that supplying up to 8 servings of carotenoid-containing fruits and vegetables per day don't demonstrate a reduction in DNA damage or improvement in repair mechanisms.17 Eating 12 servings per day did produce some benefit particularly with regards to reduction of damaging inflammatory molecules, but most people can't sustain that level of vegetable consumption.18 True DNA protection seems to require supplementation to achieve higher levels of these valuable nutrients in your blood.

Many medicines are currently synthesized. We must question the amount of ground and water pollution, being caused from many pharmaceutical companies. This would include the use of pollution from bio-pharmaceuticals. We need to have advanced medical technology, where we can cure many of the medical problems on the planet, without having to use certain types of medicine that has to be recalled, or are in question of causing many dangerous side-effects and pollution. It takes many years of research to figure out how  different chemicals react with living organisms, including the environment. However, sometimes in the medical field, many chemicals that have a toxic effect, can sometimes be used to cure many diseases. Even plants such as poison oak, abrin ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abrin ) and many other natural toxic chemicals found in nature, could have a potential of being able to cure many diseases and illnesses, including types of cancer.

We need to make sure that we do not practice cruel acts towards animals,   used in scientific experiments.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is often debated if certain chemicals being genetically modified, or synthesized in bio-pharmaceuticals, should be restricted for the use in testing for medicine. Many people claim that we can even save the planet, by being able to synthesize natural chemicals that could biodegrade properly when formed. However, with many of the current synthetic chemicals that we see damaging the environment, it makes many people question if we would be better off using many traditional methods of different herbal and organic medical practices that many cultures have been using for thousands of years.

When implementing new technologies in the medical field, we should be certain of the full side-effects of medicine. Often, we see too many times when medicine has to be recalled, because of a dangerous side-effect.

World’s highest drug levels entering India stream

PATANCHERU, India (AP) When researchers analyzed vials of treated wastewater taken from a plant where about 90 Indian drug factories dump their residues, they were shocked. Enough of a single, powerful antibiotic was being spewed into one stream each day to treat every person in a city of 90,000.
And it wasn’t just ciprofloxacin being detected. The supposedly cleaned water was a floating medicine cabinet a soup of 21 different active pharmaceutical ingredients, used in generics for treatment of hypertension, heart disease, chronic liver ailments, depression, gonorrhea, ulcers and other ailments. Half of the drugs measured at the highest levels of pharmaceuticals ever detected in the environment, researchers say.
Those Indian factories produce drugs for much of the world, including many Americans. The result: Some of India’s poor are unwittingly consuming an array of chemicals that may be harmful, and could lead to the proliferation of drug-resistant bacteria.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What if it were possible to make a human body live for thousands of years through genetic engineering and biotechnology? While we could even have people living on other planets for thousands of years creating new life. 



 What if one of the reasons of our existence, is to be able to find other planets, and geoengineer forests,  jungles, rivers, and lakes, while creating life and ecosystems on other planets.


For the billions of years that nature has been creating organic material. We must question what are the implications when a company such as Monsanto, which was founded in 1901, tries to change the genetic structure of plants, which humans and animals are eating. Many of the studies and tests that we have seen, have shown that there is a problem with these genetically modified plants, including the harm that it is doing to the wild insect population and mammals.

It seems that a responsible government would have already shut down a company such as Monsanto by now. Instead politicians such as Barack Obama, sign the Monsanto Protection Act.

We need to hold companies such as Pfizer and Monsanto legally responsible for their actions.

We need to impeach Obama, and overturn the Monsanto Protection Act.

Together the people can stop greedy corporations such as Monsanto, and thrive on helping the planet, instead of harming the planet.
