All of life is on the line. Our planet’s climate is in serious trouble, and it’s been proven that industrialized agriculture is the biggest driving force, yet it hardly makes the news.
A third of the commercial honeybee colonies in the United States died in one winter. Parts of Europe have already banned the dangerous chemicals that threaten pollinators—but not the U.S., where the very future of pollination-based agriculture is at risk. Ultimately, that means much of the world’s food supply.
While millions of people are moving from fad diet to fad diet, the pounds keep piling up, the planet keeps getting sicker, and medical spending keeps increasing. Hefty health care costs are forced on families as we try to cure diseases we should spend more time preventing.
Meanwhile, Monsanto and Pepsi have teamed up, trying to deal a death blow to mandatory GMO labeling efforts in the United States. Who does that benefit? Certainly not me or you.
A few companies like these are pocketing billions of dollars, and they’re piling on the campaign donations to make sure that government doesn’t upset their profits. Who pays for that? You do. We do. In government subsidies paid to promote and continue this sick way of life.
That’s why we’re so glad that you’re one of millions of people who are rising up, with us, and saying:
Enough is enough!
