Crop Dusting

While GMOs and the lack of mandatory GMO-labeling in the U.S. seem to be getting everyone’s attention these days, a bigger and more dangerous story may very well be the toxic chemicals that are sprayed on our crops.

The most widely used chemical of them all, glyphosate, which just happens to be the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, has been generating its own fair share of news lately.

Another Reason to Support Organic – It Will More Effectively Feed the World During the Global Drought

When people get into a debate about whether organic food is worth it or not, the first issue that always comes up is price.

While organic can cost a little more, there are numerous ways to make it less expensive.

Yet, what is often missing in this discussion is how organic is so much better for the planet.

And this is something that absolutely must be part of the narrative as to why organic is the superior choice, particularly because the global food system is responsible for 44-57% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Read more »
