Impacts of Genetically Engineered Crops on Pesticide Use in the United States

Filed under: Health News — Tags: , , , — admin @ 2:11 PM

Impacts of Genetically Engineered Crops on Pesticide Use
in the United States: The First Thirteen Years

Learn More @ the Organic Center

This report explores the impact of the adoption of genetically engineered (GE) corn, soybean, and cotton on pesticide use in the United States, drawing principally on data from the United States Department of Agriculture. The most striking finding is that GE crops have been responsible for an increase of 383 million pounds of herbicide use in the U.S. over the first 13 years of commercial use of GE crops (1996- 2008). This dramatic increase in the volume of herbicides applied swamps the decrease in insecticide use attributable to GE corn and cotton, making the overall chemical footprint of today’s GE crops decidedly negative. The report identifies, and discusses in detail, the primary cause of the increase — the emergence of resistant weeds.

The steep rise in the pounds of herbicides applied with respect to most GE crop acres is not news to farmers. Weed control is now widely acknowledged as a serious management problem within GE cropping systems. Farmers and weed scientists across the heartland and cotton belt are now struggling to devise affordable and effective strategies to deal with the resistant weeds emerging in the wake of herbicide-tolerant crops. But skyrocketing herbicide use is news to the public at large, which still harbors the illusion, fed by misleading industry claims and advertising, that biotechnology crops are reducing pesticide use. Such a claim was valid for the first few years of commercial use of GE corn, soybeans, and cotton. But, it is no longer.

An accurate assessment of the performance of GE crops on pesticide use is important for reasons other than correcting the excesses of industry advertising. It is also about the future direction of agriculture, research, and regulatory policy. Herbicides and insecticides are potent environmental toxins. Where GE crops cannot deliver meaningful reductions in reliance on pesticides, policy makers need to look elsewhere. In addition to toxic pollution, agriculture faces the twin challenges of climate change and burgeoning world populations. The biotechnology industry’s current advertising campaigns promise to solve those problems, just as the industry once promised to reduce the chemical footprint of agriculture. Before we embrace GE crops as solution to these new challenges, we need a sober, data-driven appraisal of its track record on earlier pledges.

Have You Heard, Coconut Trees Produce Their Own Soy Sauce, From Coconut Nectar?

Have you heard, coconut trees produce their own soy sauce
from Coconut Nectar?

Coconut nectar is a very low glycemic liquid sweetener derived from the liquid sap of the coconut blossoms? It naturally contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients; including vitamin C, and is one of the lowest among any sweetener.

Bragg’s Coconut Aminos are brewed from certified organic and fair trade coconut nectar from Bali into a delicious soy sauce alternative with no MSG-like effects, and 17 naturally-occurring amino acids. Add great flavor to your next salads, raw vegan dishes, sauces or even Chinese stir-fried cuisine. It is as a natural replacement for soy sauce, but with a deeper and more complex taste.

Happy Non-GMO Month

Happy Non-GMO Month

Do you know the impacts of Genetically Engineered Crops on Pesticide Use in the U.S?
The First 13 Years by Charles Benbrook

All Bragg products are Non-GMO

Background

Genetically engineered, herbicide-resistant and insect-resistant crops have been remarkable commercial successes in the United States. Few independent studies have calculated their impacts on pesticide use per hectare or overall pesticide use, or taken into account the impact of rapidly spreading glyphosate-resistant weeds. A model was developed to quantify by crop and year the impacts of six major transgenic pest-management traits on pesticide use in the U.S. over the 16-year period, 1996–2011: herbicide-resistant corn, soybeans, and cotton; Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) corn targeting the European corn borer; Bt corn for corn rootworms; and Bt cotton for Lepidopteron insects.

Results

Herbicide-resistant crop technology has led to a 239 million kilogram (527 million pound) increase in herbicide use in the United States between 1996 and 2011, while Bt crops have reduced insecticide applications by 56 million kilograms (123 million pounds). Overall, pesticide use increased by an estimated 183 million kgs (404 million pounds), or about 7%.

Conclusions

Contrary to often-repeated claims that today’s genetically-engineered crops have, and are reducing pesticide use, the spread of glyphosate-resistant weeds in herbicide-resistant weed management systems has brought about substantial increases in the number and volume of herbicides applied. If new genetically engineered forms of corn and soybeans tolerant of 2,4-D are approved, the volume of 2,4-D sprayed could drive herbicide usage upward by another approximate 50%. The magnitude of increases in herbicide use on herbicide-resistant hectares has dwarfed the reduction in insecticide use on Bt crops over the past 16 years, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Do You Know What a GMO Is? All Bragg Products Are Non-GMO

Filed under: Health News — Tags: , , — admin @ 10:59 AM

Do you know what a GMO is? All Bragg Products are Non-GMO

Learn more at the Organic Center here

October is Non-GMO Month. Learn 5 Facts To Know About GMOs.

What you need to know

  1. What is a GMO? GMOs (genetically modified organisms, also known as genetically engineered-GE) are altered at the molecular level through laboratory processes that take genes from one species and insert them into another to obtain desired traits.
  2. Environmental concerns. GMOs may migrate and damage other farms and ecosystems. They have been known to cross-pollinate and contaminate non-GMO crops; once they get into the wild they cannot be recalled. Additionally, studies have shown GMO crops often use more pesticides that non-GMO crops.
  3. Safety. The safety of GMOs for human consumption that has not been assured. Several studies have affirmed that GMO crops have the potential to introduce new toxins or allergens into our food and environment. There are no mandatory human clinical trials for GMO crops, no requirement for long-term testing on animals and limited testing requirements on allergenicity
  4. Presence. As much as 60 to 70% of processed foods available in U.S. grocery stores likely contain no GMOs. If you eat something with high fructose corn syrup, there’s a 90% likelihood that you are consuming GMOs.
  5. Labeling. Most developed countries, including 15 nations of the European Union, Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Russia and China have mandatory labeling of GMO foods.

What to do

  1. Buy organic. The USDA’s official organic standards prohibit products that were grown and made with GMOs. Organic food and products are the best way to avoid GMOs.
  2. If not organic, look for the Non-GMO Project label. If a product carries the Non-GMO Project Verified Label, it has been tested and found to have less than 0.9% GMO contamination.
  3. Avoid foods that are more likely to be GMOs. There are nine GMO crops on the market today: corn, soybean, cotton, sugar beets, alfalfa, canola, Hawaiian papaya, yellow crookneck squash and zucchini. These crops often end up in the following foods when processed: corn syrup, corn starch, corn oil, beef, milk, chicken, farmed fish, soy lecithin, soy protein, vegetable oil and cottonseed oil.
  4. Write the FDA to demand labeling on all foods that contain GMOs. Politicians need to hear the message loud and clear; we all have a right to know
