    I'm lost. What does this have to do with terrorism at all? Maybe I missed something.

    yeah, I'm not quite sure how this qualifies as terrorism either...

    Regarding the article though, pretty neat. Just hope that they've fulled tested it and everything.

    Humm....this is new.

    I'll be curious to know how the organic community weights in on this.

    Will this be something that they might support to eleviate any concerns that consumers might have against iradiated meats and poultry?

    I'll check my sources and get back with ya.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Uh...I don't see a terrorist link either.

    Re: FDA OKs bacteria-eating virus to treat meat

    I guess it had to come to this..

    The Beef industry has been toxifying their cows with anti-biotics for decades. Because of the crowded, filthy, terrible living conditions cows are placed into, they breed disgusting amounts of diseases and bacteria. To keep the cows alive and the meat edible to sustain market demand, the beef industry shoots up their cows with tons of anti-biotics. However, after long dosages of exposure, the bacteria and diseases become immune to the anti-biotics, and the beef industry is forced to try a new anti-biotic strain. Eventually, we will run out of anti-biotic alternatives to purify our beef products, and the beef industry will collapse.

    This is their only alternative. To fight bacteria and virsues with bacteria and viruses. Of course, this could be awful. Bio-engineering viruses and bacteria to serve certain functions is not only unpredictable, but opens the doors to bio-warfare potential. And who knows what long-term affects may occur. We are just beginning to find out the health defects found in the hormone treated milk we drink.

    What are you talking about? This has been approved to prevent contamination of highly processed meats. The only thing this does is keep your hotdog fresher for longer. so, to repeat THIS WILL NOT END UP IN YOUR STEAK OR GROUND BEEF.

    Umm, as far as I know bacteria-phage's age naturally occuring viruses. All that's been done is to farm the viruses.

    So, in general RTFA.

    I get exactly where Just_Belive18 is coming from.

    After WWII American Agriculture discovered Ammonium Nitrate. (Remember the stuff used to blow up the Federal Building in OKC?)

    Ammonium Nitrate was almost 100% nitrogen. Farmer's crops, during that era, nearly doubled and tripled in production because of that fertilizer. It became the end all be all in American Agriculture.

    Problem was it was short lived.

    Before long incects, pests, drought, and mother nature intervened, and crops weren't as prosperous as they had been before.

    The answer? DDT; dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (from which the abbreviation was derived).

    DDT was developed during WWII to control disease carrying mosquitoes.
    DDT also proved very effective against grasshoppers, aphids, locusts, and any other insect that attacted America's 'food-basket.'

    The problem is that DDT also proved to cause CANCER in humans.



    In 1962, American biologist Rachel Carson published the book Silent Spring, which alleged that DDT caused cancer and harmed bird reproduction by thinning egg shells.[1] The book resulted in a large public outcry which eventually led to the insecticide being banned for agricultural use in the USA, and was one of the signature events in the birth of the environmental movement. DDT was subsequently banned for agricultural use in many countries in the 1970s due to what many believe is a negative environmental impact. There is still a great controversy regarding the extent of this impact and the reduced use of DDT to fight human diseases.
    These revelations launched the "Green Movement" or the "Enviromentalist Movement."

    With such chemicals now being called into question, it was found that the run off from these chemicals was causing "algea blooms" in area lakes, rivers, and streams. Rain water was no longer fit to drink.
    .
    Coorporate Agricultures answer?

    Genetically Modified Organisms. GMO.

    Where I live, all that the Corporate Agriculturual business have to tell the local Corn farmers is that "it's Round-Up ready."


    Roundup is the brand name of a systemic, broad-spectrum herbicide produced by the U.S. life sciences giant Monsanto. It is the most used herbicide in the world, and the top-selling agrichemical of all time. Monsanto developed and patented the glyphosate molecule in the 1970s, and marketed Roundup from 1973. It retained exclusive rights in the US until its US patent expired in September, 2000, and maintained a predominant marketshare in countries where the patent expired earlier.

    The active ingredient of Roundup is the isopropylamine salt of glyphosate. Glyphosate's mode of action is to inhibit an enzyme involved in the synthesis of the amino acids tyrosine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. It is absorbed through foliage and translocated to growing points. Weeds and grass will generally re-emerge within one to two months after usage. Because of this mode of action, it is only effective on actively growing plants; it is not effective as a pre-emergence herbicide. Due to the absorption being limited to foliage, soil-bound glyphosate is effectively inert. (See main article glyphosate)

    Monsanto also produces seeds which grow into plants genetically engineered to be tolerant to glyphosate which are known as Roundup Ready crops. The genes contained in these seeds, although naturally occurring in other species, are patented (See Glyphosate). Such crops allow farmers to use glyphosate as a post-emergence pesticide against both broadleaf and cereal weeds. Soy was the first Roundup Ready crop and was produced at Monsanto's Agracetus Campus located in Middleton, Wisconsin. Current Roundup Ready crops include maize (corn), sorghum, cotton, soy, canola and alfalfa.
    Meaning that the Corn has been Genetically Modified to withstand the Chemical Round-Up, and then that Corn is harvested and sold as silage to the local dairy farmers in the next county.

    The same cows that are injected with hormones, and anti-biotics that produce milk that you buy at your grocer's coolers each time you grab skim, 2%, and Whole fat milk.
    You're drinking that, you're eating that!

    That beef that's being processed, that previously had to be Radiated (another product of the post WWII era), will now be "sprayed with a virus" to kill bactaria in your meat!

    The "Organic Movement" didn't start in some "hippie commune" in the 60's, but rather in laboratories where scientists began to explore the effects of Ammonium Nitrate (too much nitrogen), and DDT on THE SOIL. The Modern Day term for the Organic Movement is called "sustainable agricuture."


    Sustainable agriculture refers to the ability of a farm to produce perpetually. Two key issues are 1) long-term effects of various practices on soil properties and processes essential for crop productivity, and 2) the long-term availability of inputs. Practices that can cause long-term damage to soil include excessive tillage (leading to erosion) and irrigation without adequate drainage (leading to accumulation of salt in the soil). Long-term experiments provide some of the best data on how various practices affect soil properties essential to sustainability.
    While air and sunlight are generally available in most geographic locations, crops also depend on soil nutrients and the availability of water. When farmers grow and harvest crops, they remove some of these nutrients from the soil. Without replenishment, the land would suffer from nutrient depletion and be unusable for further farming. Sustainable agriculture depends on replenishing the soil while minimizing the use of non-renewable resources, such as natural gas (used in converting atmospheric nitrogen into synthetic fertilizer), or mineral ores (e.g., phosphate). Possible sources of nitrogen that would, in principle, be available indefinitely, include: 1) recycling crop waste and livestock or human manure, 2) growing legume crops and forages such as, peanuts, or alfalfa that form symbioses with nitrogen-fixing bacteria called rhizobia, 3) adapting the current industrial nitrogen fixation process to use hydrogen made by electrolysis (perhaps using electricity from solar cells or windmills) instead of natural gas, or 4) genetically engineering (non-legume) crops to form nitrogen-fixing symbioses or fix nitrogen without microbial symbionts. The last option was proposed in the 1970's, but would be well beyond the capability of current (2006) technology, even if various concerns about biotechnology were addressed. Sustainable options for replacing other nutrient inputs (phosphorus, potassium, etc.) are more limited.
    Because the viruses that are now being authorized to combat bacteria in our meat, it makes one speculate if we've not opened up another pandora's box.

    This time it's on an molecular level, instead of a chemical to cell level.

    Just cause the FDA approved something don't make it good for ya!

    Re: FDA OKs bacteria-eating virus to treat meat

    I read this in the paper over the weekend. This just creeps me totally out; spraying food with viruses sounds like microbial Frankenstein and we're supposed to eat them. I was okay food irradiation to kill bacteria. Sterilize the food without a trace. The irradiated ground beef I've had was very good. It's common in Europe I've heard. What ever happened to that?

    Funny you should post this now...

    The Sci-Fi channel has been playing Cabin Fever this week, a movie about an outbreak of flesh-eating bacteria on a group of teenagers vacationing in a cabin in the woods... I had stopped at Kentucky Fried Chicken and got a carry out, brought it home, and was flipping the channels for something to watch while I ate my dinner. I saw that, thought it was interesting, and started watching it...

    I didn't finish eating my second chicken thigh...

    What are they? Here in Australia, producers must openly disclose if food is genetically modified - so I avoid it if so. Because of this, the GM food industry hasn't really taken off here.

    Surely you've heard of Monsanto? The world wide multi-billion dollar corporation that is attempting to corner the world's food market?



    The only sure way that you're getting organically or naturally grown vegetables is to buy locally grown produce, and to stay away from "super-market" vegetables unless they are specifically labeled "organic" or "naturally grown."

    Yes, of course I've heard of Monsanto. But what's your point? That it's difficult to buy food that's unaffected by Monsanto products like Roundup? Because it's not. Every supermarket these days has extensive organic options. There's no reason to buy otherwise, except that it's sometimes cheaper (and thankfully, this is changing).

    What's my point? The top of my head of course!

    Years ago, when I decided to become an Organic Farmer, I had no idea how the system of world-wide agriculture worked.

    It sounds as if you've educated yourself very well about these things.

    Personally I find non-organically grown or non-certified Naturally Grown produce to be bland tasting, and lacking of any real nutritional value.

    BTW, Welcome to JUB!

    Actually I wasn't sure where the U.S. stood on this issue. Now I know where we're at on the topic:



    Labeling Issues, Revolving Doors, rBGH and Bribery

    An issue of growing concern is the Campaign to Label Genetically Engineered Foods [37] (http://www.thecampaign.org/). Many have questioned why it is that while consumers in Europe have the right to know through labeling which foods contain GM ingredients and thus to make an informed choice consumers in the United States, purportedly the bastion of freedom, democracy and the "free market" in the world are denied this same right. Polls indicate that the great majority of Americans who are aware of the issue want labels [38] (http://www.organicconsumers.org/ge/newpoll102303.cfm). Attempts to accomplish some kind of labeling have repeatedly been rebuffed due to tremendous opposition from biotech, which fear loss of sales if people know [39] (http://www.extension.iastate.edu/Pag...9bionews3.html) [40] (http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/...c-labels_x.htm). In 2002 Oregon tried and failed to pass just such a labeling initiative (Measure 27). The campaign cited big money and misinformation propagated by biotech as contributing to the defeat [41] (http://www.voteyeson27.com/campaign_statement.htm). For more see Labeling Issues, Revolving Doors, rBGH, Bribery and Monsanto.

    Aw, thanks centexfarmer. I've been reading these boards for a while, and thought I'd join up.

    Good to hear that you're an organic farmer! Yes, a lot of non-organic food is quite bland. Especially tomatoes; the cheap, non-organic ones in supermarkets are just tasteless!
