This is a Call to Action for a Non-Hierarchical Occupation of Monsanto Everywhere Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and unlabeled GMOs.

Protest

Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto & it's enablers like the FDA, USDA, EPA, GMA, BIO, and the processed food companies that use Monsanto's products. 7 Dodgy Food Practices Banned in Europe But Just Fine Here. Last week, the European Commission voted to place a two-year moratorium on most uses of neonicotinoid pesticides, on the suspicion that they're contributing to the global crisis in honeybee health (a topic I've touched on here, here, here, and here).

7 Dodgy Food Practices Banned in Europe But Just Fine Here

Since then, several people have asked me whether Europe's move might inspire the US Environmental Protection Agency to make a similar move—currently, neonics are widely used in several of our most prevalent crops, including corn, soy, cotton, and wheat. The answer is no. As I reported recently, an agency press officer told me the EU move will have no bearing on the EPA's own reviews of the pesticides, which aren't scheduled for release until 2016 at the earliest. All of which got me thinking about other food-related substances and practices that are banned in Europe but green-lighted here. 10 High-Tech Health Breakthroughs Coming Soon to Your Body. Magnetic Brain Stimulation For the 20 percent of depressed patients who don't respond to drugs such as Prozac, the traditional last-ditch treatment option has been electroshock therapy.

Recently, researchers worldwide began investigating a promising new alternative: transcranial magnetic stimulation. In TMS, magnetic pulses created by a metal coil attached to the scalp generate small electrical currents in the brain; these stimulate nerve cells in areas involved in depression--without harming surrounding gray matter. Self-Igniting Fire Starter. One OccupyWallStreet graph to rule them all. Since the year of my birth the working class has gotten NOTHING while the wealthiest 1% have taken EVERYTHING.

One OccupyWallStreet graph to rule them all

And this graph stops at 2007, right before the biggest crash since the Great Depression. I can only imagine how much worse things look from a statistical view since then when it comes to graphing income inequality. When people ask "What are demands of #OccupyWallStreet? " I'd like to point to this graph and let them try to figure it out for themselves. 9 Overlooked Technologies That Could Transform The World. What I've noticed is that most people don't really pay attention to "science" news, unless it's something that they can see immediately.

9 Overlooked Technologies That Could Transform The World

I think this is at least partially because of the amount of news that comes out daily - whatever we may think about the quality of news, there is just a flood of it, which makes picking out "interesting" items difficult. When I talk about (just for example) the idea of gene therapy, most people think that it is still complete science fiction, as opposed to a very near-term product that will be available. A solution to reverse Africa's growing deserts. I've often said that the most sophisticated "green" technology on the planet is the humble tree.

A solution to reverse Africa's growing deserts

Trees sequester carbon, fix nitrogen into the soil, create organic compost, prevent erosion and encourage rain, while providing sustainable crops, shape, lumber and even fuel. The single most important activity on the planet (I believe) is planting trees, a fact backed up by the latest McKinsey study on abating the effects of global warming. But there is a problem. Reforestation efforts in denuded lands such as Africa, Mexico, India and China have never been taken seriously as a means to abate climate change because young saplings are very difficult to establish.
