EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks about a new ‘breakthrough’ technology discovered by the US Navy, that converts sea water to fuel, yet is only being considered for military use. Abby then features a report by RT Correspondent, Lucy Kafanov, who is on the ground in Kabul, Afghanistan, about the Afghanistan presidential elections, the background of the two frontrunners and the looming 2014 NATO withdrawal date. Abby then speaks with former Food and Drug Administration agent, Gary Collins, about why the agency isn’t looking out for consumers and how the FDA differs from its counterparts in other industrialized countries when it comes to regulating genetically modified foods and additives. Abby then remarks on a controversial new film called ‘Honor Diaries’ which highlights a practice performed in some Islamic countries known as Honor Killings. Although the film has an important message, the financiers of the movie are all associated with organizations that promote Islamophobia. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Dr. Richard Long, co-author of the new book ‘Blueprint for a Literate Nation’ about the US’ declining literacy rate and solutions to this growing problem affecting 14 percent of Americans.

  1. Great to see the FDA guy speaking out. An ex-EPA official actually also started making some noise and just came out with a book this past week. He had an interview on WPR the other day:

    Seems like he’s being largely ignored by the mainstream press, the only thing I could find on the guy was the book’s AP press release:

    And here’s the book:

    Might make another great guest, Abby!

    And, while we’re on the subject, this little gem just came out showing the herbicide glyphosate to accumulate in breast milk. It’s not an “official” study (because they have neglected and refused to do them up to this point), and the top scientists at Monsanto have assured its impossible, so I’m sure we have nothing to worry about:
