Feed the World has set up the first ever validated glyphosate testing (LC/MS/MS) for the general public worldwide, which will be provided in the U.S. with the support of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA).
If you live in the U.S. and would like to test your urine, breast milk or tap water for glyphosate contamination please order and pay for the test in the form below.
If you live outside the U.S. you can send your urine or tap water samples (not breast milk) to the U.S. for testing, however our aim is to form partnerships with labs in your country to enable our validated testing to be made available to you at a cheaper price.

My Internet service has been sketchy lately, so my ISP guys came out to see what the problem is. It appears that a tree has grown up right in my direct line of site to the wireless tower. That could explain it. So, we discussed options such as getting a taller pole, hiking several miles through the bush to locate the offending tree and chopping it down, attempting to find another location to point my antenna, and so on. But the thing that really struck me was that they mentioned that they could see everything on my property in detail from their office…
Google Earth. Yup. They can simply go to Google Earth, punch in my addy and lo and behold, there I am weeding the garden in the back, watering the geese, and quite possibly, taking a quick bathroom break behind the shed. Read the rest of this entry »

The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture is in bed with Monsanto. This clandestine relationship is being exposed through the tireless efforts of “over six hundred individuals from different fields and locations in China,” who have submitted a petition to end the takeover.
GMOs (genetically modified/engineered organisms) in China are regulated by the Ministry of Agriculture, and the future that this department has in store for the people of China is anything but organic and healthy:
The agriculture biotech industry is supported by the central government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC or China) as an emerging sector of strategic importance. According to China’s 12th Five-Year Plan on National Economic and Social Development for 2011–2015 (12th Five-year Plan), the country will “speed up the innovation and application of biotechnology breeding in agriculture,” “develop new biological variety with important application value and independent intellectual property rights,” and “foster a large and strong modern seed industry.”
Based on the 12th Five-year Plan and other plans supplementing it, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) released the 12th Five-Year Plan for Development of Agricultural Science and Technology (Agricultural S&T Plan), which provides more details on the development of agricultural science and technology. In this Plan, the MOA proposes to strengthen research involving genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Major research projects on breeding new varieties of GMOs will continue to be carried out in the 2011–2015 period, according to the Agricultural S&T Plan. The plans also incorporate biosafety assessment and management as focus areas of biotech industry development.
The people’s response to this collusion of the government of China with the biotech industry:
The petition letter submitted by over six hundred individuals from different fields and locations in China to the State Council Legislative Affairs Office regarding revisions proposed by the Ministry of Agriculture to their “Agricultural GMOs Safety Evaluation Administration Methods”
