Rainforest Portal Monsanto’s Dirty Dozen: The 12 Most Awful Products Made By Monsanto When you take a moment to reflect on the history of product development at Monsanto, what do you find? Here are twelve products that Monsanto has brought to market. See if you can spot the pattern… #1 – Saccharin Did you know Monsanto got started because of an artificial sweetener? After mounting pressure from consumers, the Calorie Control Council[5], and manufacturers of artificial sweeteners and diet sodas, along with additional studies[6] (several conducted by the sugar and sweetener industry) that reported flaws in the 1970s studies, saccharin was delisted from the NIH’s Carcinogen List. #2 – PCBs During the early 1920s, Monsanto began expanding their chemical production into polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) to produce coolant fluids for electrical transformers, capacitors, and electric motors. After another decade of studies, the truth could no longer be contained: the U.S. #3 – Polystyrene #4 – Atom bomb and nuclear weapons #6 – Dioxin #7 – Agent Orange (Think that can’t happen here?

La déforestation : causes et conséquences The Importance of Drinking Rather Than Smoking Cannabis Cannabinoids can prevent cancer, reduce heart attacks by 66% and insulin dependent diabetes by 58%. Cannabis clinician Dr. William Courtney recommends drinking 4 – 8 ounces of raw flower and leaf juice from any Hemp plant, 5 mg of Cannabidiol (CBD) per kg of body weight, a salad of Hemp seed sprouts and 50 mg of THC taken in 5 daily doses. Cannabis – whether Sativa, Indica, Ruderalis, male, female, hermaphrodite, wild, bred for fiber, seeds or medicinal resin – is a vegetable with every dietary essential we can’t synthesize: Essential Amino Acids, Essential Fatty Acids, Essential Cannabinoid acids and hundreds of anti-Cancer compounds. Cannabis clinician Dr. “If you heat the plant, you will decarboxylate THC-acid and you will get high, you”ll get your 10 mg. “The amount of Cannabinoids we need would be difficult to get through smoked Cannabis without feeling the intoxicating effects,” said Kristen Courtney. Hemp juice has lowered blood pressure an average of 10 points within 2 hours.

Il était une forêt Le langage des arbres © FranceInfo Les forêts primaires se trouvent au stade final de leur évolution. Il faut 700 ans pour atteindre ce point d'équilibre ultime. Le film nous montre comment lentement au fil des siècles se tisse ce réseau de connexions complexes entre végétaux et animaux. Dans ce réseau, les arbres jouent un rôle bien plus important qu'il n'y paraît. Au fil de l'évolution, ils ont par exemple développé des capacités de communication. IL ETAIT UNE FORET - Bande-annonce VF © CoteCine Quel genre de message les arbres s'envoient-ils entre eux ? Des messages d'alerte par exemple. Si les arbres peuvent faire fuir certains animaux, ils savent comment en attirer d'autres ? Ce sont des charmeurs. Rien n'est trop beau pour appâter ces animaux transporteurs. Quel genre de son ? Prenons l'exemple du Moabi, l'un des plus grands arbres des forêts humides africaines. Les arbres peuvent faire venir les éléphants, ils peuvent aussi faire venir la pluie.

The Hidden History Of The Human Race Our history is not what we think! Over the past few thousand years, we have warped our own history. Our versions of the past has been mistranslated, changed, altered, and skewed to fit our understanding of reality, and completely left our many things that we cannot explain. Today, we are going to look at an alternate version of our history, a version that was recorded across many ancient tablets and artifacts throughout time, which have only recently been uncovered. Michael Cremo is interviewed about his archeological discoveries and the cover up of the scientific community. Michael Cremo is a member of the World Archeological Congress and the European Association of Archaeologists as well as an associate member of the Bhaktivedanta Institute specializing in history and philosophy of science. “Looking at the possibility that there were previous advanced civilizations on Earth, modern buildings made of steel and glass will not last over vast periods of time.

ENVIRONNEMENT • L'Indonésie, championne de la déforestation L’archipel a détrôné le Brésil en tant que premier coupeur d’arbres de la planète. La forêt primaire y disparaît deux fois plus vite qu’en Amazonie. Et les autorités du pays sont impuissantes à enrayer ce processus. Quelque 0,84 million d’hectares par an. C’est le rythme auquel disparaît la forêt indonésienne, selon une étude parue dans Nature Climate Change le 29 juin. Entre l’an 2000 et 2012, le recul des forêts primaires est estimé à plus de 6 millions d’hectares, essentiellement à cause de l’activité des industries de la pâte à papier et de l’agroalimentaire. Ces coupes franches dans les forêts primaires et les tourbières boisées de l’archipel, observées par des images satellites, augmentent les émissions de gaz à effet de serre et nuisent de façon drastique à la biodiversité. Or “les forêts indonésiennes abritent 10 % des espèces végétales mondiales, 12 % des mammifères, 16 % des reptiles et 17 % des oiseaux”, note The Age. Virginie Lepetit

16 Foods That Will Re-Grow From Kitchen Scraps 16 Foods That Will Re-Grow From Kitchen Scraps There’s nothing like eating your own home- grown veggies, and there are heaps of different foods that will re-grow from the scrap pieces that you’d normally throw out or put into your compost bin. It’s fun. Just remember … the quality of the “parent” vegetable scrap will help to determine the quality of the re-growth. Leeks, Scallions, Spring Onions and Fennel You can either use the white root end of a vegetable that you have already cut, or buy a handful of new vegetables to use specifically for growing. Simply place the white root end in a glass jar with a little water, and leave it in a sunny position. Lemongrass Lemongrass grows just like any other grass. Within a week or so, new growth will start to appear. Celery, Bok Choi, Romaine Lettuce & Cabbage Similar to leeks, these vegetables will re-grow from the white root end. After a few days, you should start to see roots and new leaves appear. Ginger Ginger is very easy to re-grow. Potatoes
