Herbicide Glyphosate (Roundup)

Food Chain Radio Show #920
May 18, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

*********                       Michael Olson hosts:   Stephanie Seneff, PhD, Senior Research Scientist

MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory                              

I recently sat in on a Food Dialogues panel discussion titled “The Straight Story on Biotech in Agriculture: The Media and its Impact on Consumers.”


This discussion, which took place in Chicago at the International Bio convention in front of an audience of biotech people from biotech companies like Monsanto and DuPont, quickly became a tug of words between organic and conventional agriculture.  One of the panelists, Dr. Bob Goldberg, was the author of the ballot argument against California’s Proposition 37 GMO Labeling initiative, and so had lots of words with which to tug, and was very good at tugging.

Nevertheless, I was there to tell the audience why I think people are uncertain about their technologies, and the foods those technologies produce, and so offered up something like this:

“You have at your hands a marvelous new technology which has the capacity for ultimate good, and ultimate bad.  You have made it possible for one farmer to grow thousands of acres of food crops with no weeds, and therefore have made their lives much better, and yourselves, much wealthier.  But what did consumers get?  They got food drenched in herbicide and infused with pesticide.  And some of those consumers are starting to ask, ‘What’s to eat?’”

Those who manufacture herbicide-resistant plants say that the herbicide saturated foods are safe for people and mammals to eat.  The herbicides go right straight through us, they say, and they have the science to back up what they say.  And who am I to doubt the wisdom of their science?

Then I ran across the following in the journal Entropy:  “… glyphosate is the “textbook example of exogenous semiotic entropy.”  And… “Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.”

This leads us to ask the author of that Entropy article…

Is the herbicide glyphosate (Roundup) safe to eat?

The Saturday Food Chain with Michael Olson- May 04th 2013- Super Weed- Is Seaweed good for the Human Body?

Food Chain Weekly News Topic
Food Chain Radio Show #918
April 4, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

Michael Olson hosts:  Scott Kennedy, FarmaSea

Is seaweed a good food for the human body?
I was introduced to the nutritional properties of seaweed by Robin, a dedicated gardener from South Africa.  “I have a few boxes to take to the flea market,” he said, “May I have a lift?”
When I saw that the boxes contained kelp Robin had drug home from the nearby beach and shredded by hand, I said, “Robin, you have got to be kidding me!   Who in their right mind is going to buy that seaweed?”

“Oh,” Robin replied, “You’ll see!”

After running a few errands, I decided to swing by the flea market to see how Robin was doing peddling his boxes of seaweed.  I found him standing there with a confused look.  There were no boxes of seaweed to be seen anywhere.

“Robin,” I said, “Did you really sell those boxes of seaweed? “

“No,” he replied, slowly and sadly swinging his head from side to side.  “I went to the restroom and when I came back the boxes were gone.  Somebody just took them!”  
The theft of Robin’s boxes caused me to wonder about the value of the seaweed, and later, to buy tons of it to manufacture an organic fertilizer called Soil Essence.   It would be fair to say that I became a believer in the nutritional properties of kelp.  
That being said, the following claim gives me cause to pause: “The people that eat it (kelp) every day or maybe even three times a week, are the healthiest and longest living people in the history of mankind.”
This claim leads me to ask…  
Is seaweed a good food for the human body?

The Saturday Food Chain with Michael Olson- April 27th 2013- Should We Send the World's Hungry Food or Money?

Food Chain Weekly News Topic
Food Chain Radio Show #917
April 27, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

Michael Olson hosts:  Kathy Kozer, National Family Farm Coalition; Eric Munoz,

Oxfam America;  Mary Kay Thatcher, American Farm Bureau Federation

Should we send the hungry food or money?

When possible, the United States sends the surplus crops of its farmers to feed the world’s hungry.
The Obama administration is planning to change this traditional way of aiding the world’s hungry:  Instead of sending the surplus crops of its farmers, the administration wants to send the surplus money of its taxpayers.

The reason put forth for this change of plans is simple:  Sending surplus U.S. crops to the hungry destroys the market for local agriculture.  After all, the reasoning goes, local farmers cannot compete with free crops from abroad, and when local agriculture is destroyed, the hungry become even hungrier.

But others say sending surplus U.S. taxpayer money to foreign farmers will undermine the competitiveness of U.S. farmers and related industries. After all, the reasoning goes, what U.S. farmer can compete with foreign farmers receiving free U.S. taxpayer money?
This disagreement over how the U.S. should administer its food aid leads us to ask…  
Should we send food or money?
