"An international team of scientists predict seafloor dwelling marine life will decline by up to 38 per cent in the North Atlantic and over five per cent globally over the next century. These changes will be driven by a reduction in the plants and animals that live at the surface of the oceans that feed deep-sea communities. As a result, ecosystem services such as fishing will be threatened." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/12/131231094347.htm

Major reductions in seafloor marine life from climate change by 2100

CO2-rich seas can scramble fish behavior High levels of CO2 can alter a fish’s sense of smell, hearing and sight — even its decision-making. That leads young tropical reef fish to die more often. Here’s what happens.

Reuters reports that "A decline in the diversity of farmed plants and livestock breeds is gathering pace, threatening future food supplies for the world's growing population, the head of a new United Nations panel on biodiversity said." He explained plant/animal farm diversity is "necessary as they could have genes resistant to future diseases or to shifts in the climate to warmer temperatures, more droughts or downpours." Monsanto's industrial ag mono crop dominance is a threat to humanity.

Decline in biodiversity of farmed plants, animals gathering pace

A decline in the diversity of farmed plants and livestock breeds is gathering pace, threatening future food supplies for the world's growing population, the head of a new United Nations panel on biodiversity said on Monday.

ScienceDaily reports: "Over the past few decades, crop breeders have increasingly relied on the wild and weedy relatives of domesticated crops as new sources of disease resistance, drought tolerance, and other traits. But just like all wild plant species, these 'crop wild relatives' (CWR) are also at risk of decline and extinction due to habitat loss, pollution, and climate change." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/10/131001221215.htm

Ken Roseboro at the Organic & Non-GMO Report recently explained: “ One of the claims of proponents of genetically modified crops is that the introduction of GM seeds increases farmers’ choice when it.

A study suggests that potassium salts, which are plentiful in fruits and veggies, may help improve bone health. http://environmentalillnessnetwork.tumblr.com/post/108548794011/potassium-salts-bone-health

In "Chemical creep: Farmers return to pesticides as GMO corn loses bug resistance," Grist reports: "The frustrating part is that rootworms’ resistance to the Bt corn gene was entirely predictable — so predictable that some companies seized it as a financial opportunity." If certain corporations succeed in forcing us to stay on the same GMO-pesticide failure track, many Americans are likely to be forcibly exposed to increasing amounts of increasingly toxic pesticides via air, water, and food.

Do the nutritional supplements you have been taking because you wanted to improve your health actually contain corn-derived ingredients that were never put through thorough, independent, safety-testing by the FDA? The linked post raises concerns.
