Solutions to Detox The World

On March 20 2015 the World Health Organisation’s cancer agency IARC declared that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. IARC reached its decision based on the view of 17 top cancer experts from 11 countries, who met to assess the carcinogenicity of 5 pesticides.

The Detox Project supports proven sustainable solutions to feed the planet’s growing population without using harmful GMOs and large amounts of toxic pesticides:

  • How Microbes can Feed the World
  • How Organic can Feed the World
  • How IAASTD World Experts advise to Feed The World

The 1st chart below (How Microbes can Feed the World-1) shows a 2 phase approach to sustainable agriculture can include Farmers, Agribusiness, Government and Universities:

  • Phase I: 50% less chemicals  (Farmers & Agribusiness need a 2-year transition to organic)
  • Phase II: Organic

Agribusiness can make the transition to sustainable agriculture. On December 10, 2013 Monsanto announced: Monsanto and Novozymes Team Up to Provide Sustainable Bioagricultural SolutionsOn March 23, 2015 Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant stated: “The thing that often frustrates me in the debate is that there is never an alternative (to GM crops)… The other side of this is still pretty empty.”

Approximately 80% of all GMOs worldwide are glyphosate-resistant, with Monsanto’s Roundup-Ready GMOs the world leader. The World Health Organisation’s cancer agency finding that glyphosate can probably cause cancer in humans means that glyphosate and glyphosate-resistant GM crops are NOT acceptable solutions to feed the world. There are proven sustainable solutions:
