Brazil's National Cancer Institute Site Concerns Over Massive Use of Glyphosate

Brazil is the largest consumer of agrochemicals in the world. Agrochemical sales increased from USD 2 billion in 2001 to 8.5 billion in 2011. A report from Brazil’s National Cancer Institute José Alencar Gomes da Silva (INCA), part of the country’s Ministry of Health, says that national consumption of agrochemicals is equivalent to 5.2 litres of agrochemicals per year for each inhabitant.

Texas Scientists Find Antibiotic Resistance Blowing in Wind

Two Texas Tech University scientists may have made their biggest discovery yet: DNA from antibiotic-resistant bacteria in cattle feedlots is airborne.

The study focused on feedlots in Texas' Panhandle and South Plains, each holding tens of thousands of cattle, where animals spend the last few months of their lives gaining weight before slaughter. Feedlots were an ideal place to study antibiotic resistance because bacteria there are exposed to high levels of antibiotics.

The Family Farm Is Being Systematically Wiped Out Of Existence

An entire way of life is rapidly dying right in front of our eyes. The family farm is being systematically wiped out of existence in America, and big agribusiness and the federal government both have blood all over their hands. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today. That doesn't mean that there is less farming going on. U.S. farms are producing more than ever. But what it does mean is that farming is increasingly becoming dominated by the big boys.
