Did you know that Impossible Burger's key ingredient is a genetically engineered protein called soy leghemoglobin or "heme"?
Evaluating pesticide safety based on a single "active" ingredient and not on the pesticide as formulated and sold is a serious fraud:
Do you have this product in your kitchen? Throw it out!
Have you read Carey Gillam's book, "Whitewash", an expose of Monsanto and glyphosate? If not, here's the Cliff Notes version:
Want to foment opposition to glyphosate? Buy her book and after reading it, loan it to friends, family and neighbors.
Two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. At the NAFTA renegotiating talks, U.S. representatives are trying to prohibit junk food warnings like those recently instituted in Chile.

Organic chickens were moments away from being guaranteed daily access to the great outdoors . . . that is, until Trump's USDA stepped in.

New research demonstrates that organic agriculture is not just good for consumer health, but also for carbon sequestration (video):
Watch this *on fire* video in which Dr. Robert Lustig calls out the food industry for its processed food that is dramatically harming our health:
You've gone through your cupboards and ditched food with GMO ingredients and pesticide residues. What about personal care products?

While the EU has allowed use of glyphosate herbicides for another five years, individual states are passing their own bans:
U.S. farmers grew Syngenta GMO corn that hadn't been approved by China, resulting in rejected shipments and falling U.S corn prices.
