The spread of resistant weeds, it has driven herbicide use up sharply, increasing human health and environmental impacts and raising farmer costs.The solution to this is to use these following Weed Resistance Best Management practices:-Crop rotation-Rotation of herbicide-tolerant traits -Use of multiple, effective herbicide sites of action-Knowledge of fields and the weeds affecting them.-Starting with clean fields-Staying clean by using residual herbicides correctly-Controlling weed escapes -Adopting a zero tolerance approach to seeds in the soil-Cleaning equipment

GMO And Why It's Bad For You

A study analyzing the effects of GE foods on mammalian health linked three GE corn varieties to organ failure in rats. The solution to avoiding organ failure is to not eat GMO foods. You can grow your own vegetables or look for the non-GMO packaging.

A study accepted for publication in the journal 'Reproductive Toxicology' conducted by scientists at the University of Sherbrooke in Canada reports the presence of BT toxin, widely used in GE crops, in human blood.You can avoid getting BT toxin in your blood by buying food labelled 100% organic (labels include USDA, QUI, COF), recognizing fruit and vegetable label numbers (If it is a 5-digit number beginning with a 9, it is organic and is not genetically modified).

Food Allergy affects approximately 5% of children and 2% of adults in the U.S. and is a significant public health threat (Bakshi, 2003). Allergic reactions in humans occur when a normally harmless protein enters the body and stimulates an immune response (Bernstein, 2003). Although no allergic reactions to GM food by consumers have been confirmed, in vitro evidence suggesting that some GM products could cause an allergic reaction has modivated biotechnology companies to discontinue their development. A way you can avoid getting allergies is to buy 100% grass-fed meat, as well as wild-caught fish. You can seek products labeled as non-GMO or GMO-free. You can shop locally, buy whole foods, or grow your own crops. You can become aware of ingredients derived from GMO crops, and at restaurants, ask if they use organic ingredients or GMOs.
