Alternative Agriculture

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - March 25, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Jon Biloon, Rob Simone

A subsistence farmer in Hawaii, Jon Biloon shared his studies of alternative agriculture, and discussed the dangers of genetically modified (GM) foods and how agri-business is robbing individuals of health and spirituality. The genetic modification process is 30 to 40 years old and originally started out with good intentions, he noted, but now foods grown this way are associated with health risks (such risks are documented in the book Genetic Roulette).

Some 70% of packaged foods contain all or part GM foods, Biloon warned. Co-existence with genetically engineered and natural foods isn't possible because the GM crops will contaminate all food, he added. In Hawaii, genetically engineered papaya has been problematic-- organic techniques could be used to treat plant disease instead, he commented.

Modern agri-business fosters crops grown in de-mineralized soil, which makes food less nutritious, he detailed. People can benefit from growing some of their own food-- it can slow you down and connect you to your own humanity, said Biloon. He noted that plants such as tomatoes, lettuce, herbs and baby carrots are particularly easy to grow in pots or containers. On Thursdays, Biloon hosts a radio program called The Ag Show which is heard on KCOF-FM.
