Creating Poison-free Food and Farming Rejuvenating Biodiversity, Growing Organic

For a century today’s Poison Cartel has engaged in a war against life on earth, against diverse species, against the land, against farmers and society, against our bodies and our health, against stable climate systems, against knowledge, science and scientists, and against democracy and freedom. By continuing on this toxic path, we could be living the last century of human life on earth.

This Poison Cartel is now driving the sixth mass extinction of plant and animal species that form the foundation of our food supply. Poison based industrial agriculture is the biggest driver of species extinction from birds and bees, to forests (the Amazon) to soil organisms and vital species in our gut flora. Industrial monocultures have wiped out the diversity of crops we grew and ate, the bees that pollinate our crops while pesticide producing GMO plants have wiped out 90% of the monarch butterfly. Fossil fuel based toxic agriculture is also responsible for 50% of the greenhouse gases leading to Climate change.

In spite of its vital importance for human survival, agricultural biodiversity is being lost at an alarming rate. We need biodiversity to allow for evolution and thus capacity of adaptation. This diversity has been developed over thousands of generations and our duty is to safeguard it for those in the future. Farming with poisonous chemicals means debt and displacement of peasants and small farmers, leading to the unprecedented epidemic of farmers’ deaths and suicides in India and the refugee crises from Africa, Syria and other vulnerable countries.

Research shows that the poisons in our food and environment are adversely affecting our children through lower IQs, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, lack of physical coordination, loss of temper/anger management issues, bipolar/schizophrenia spectrum of illnesses, depression and childhood obesity. The research also shows that these poisons are responsible for the epidemic of non-contagious chronic diseases such as liver and kidney damage, reproductive problems, birth defects, cancer, developmental neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, metabolic disruption and epigenetic mutations.
