Plant-based phytogenics threaten big pharma’s pull on big ag, opening lucrative feed industry to emerging markets and eager investors

Anyone who has ever observed the reaction of a dog or cat five minutes after its having eaten grass can understand that phytogenics (plant-based compounds) generate healthy gut flora, protect animals from pathogens – pathogens that they typically expel by vomiting on your living room carpet. The use of phytogenics – plant-based compounds – in animal feed similarly, then, eliminates the need for expensive anti-fungals, de-worming agents, parasiticides, and anti-biotics in livestock. This point is particularly poignant when we recognize the fact that the USDA and the EU Livestock Feeding For Health In A New Era have now nearly banned all use of non-essential and especially growth-promoting anti-biotics on farm animals.

Find the dirty truth of going green in China’s toxic Lake Baotou, 2,500 sq kms of ugly REEality

The critical value of China’s REEs to maintaining growth of green and high-tech sectors was especially alarming, awakening an immediate search for new REEs suppliers and sites. It was to become a frenzied activity that unsurprisingly led the observant opportunistic to take advantage of their frantic despair.

It’s not rising SEA levels, it’s lowering SAND levels – high time to regulate the (mafia) sand trade that scoops up shorelines and aquatic habitats under the cloak of ‘climate change’

The dirtiest part of this secret is the very fact that information about it is kept buried in the sand. No international monitoring agency exists to track it or to provide clear reliable information about how much sand aggregate is being extracted, from where, to where it’s being taken, and for what purposes.
