Wanted: Soil Dead Or Alive?

I saw this thirty minute film on Facebook and I wanted to give you a heads-up about it, even though it’s in French:


Unfortunately, everything that is said in this film is true. Through the use of GMO crops and pesticides, we are gradually destroying the earth, making it dead instead of alive.

If your French is up to it, please take the time to look at this film. It’s important to understand that a natural product cannot be patented and therefore you cannot make a huge profit with it. If you play God with nature and create hybrids artificially, then you can patent the result and charge people for it.

The future of the huge agro-food industry relies on convincing you that you need to grow artificial food and spray it with lots of chemicals in order to feed yourself, your children and your children’s children.

The future of the planet requires us to say no, to return to natural ways of cultivating natural plants and trees so that the soil can be rejuvenated and life continue.

As the guy in the film says, the consumer is king. If you don’t want to eat crap, then stop buying it. It’s as simple as that.

Hope the film is useful.

Have a great week.




Healthy Site


This is just a heads-up for a really good health site:


If you want to know more about how to keep yourself healthy, there’s no better resource on the internet.  I strongly encourage you to sign up for the free newsletter, which arrives every day.  The articles are fascinating and very informative.

As Dr. Mercola points out, there are about 200 medical papers coming out every week and who has time to read all of that?  He keeps you up to speed with the latest research on nutrition and health, as well as important environmental issues that ultimately affect everybody.  His remarks are naturally geared towards the situation in the U.S.A. as he lives in Florida, but most of the problems he talks about are relevant wherever you live.

For example, genetically engineered (GE) crops and clear labelling of food is a current concern in the U.S. but it really concerns all of us.  Here in Switzerland, we have a moratorium on GE crops until 2017, but you can bet your bottom Swiss franc that misguided scientists, politicians and representatives of the food industry will once again try to convince the general population that GE is safe when it comes time to vote on renewal.

Dr. Mercola is a proponent of a holistic approach to health and suggests many natural solutions to health problems. He represents an alternative to the costly and destructive drug-based treatments currently imposed by so-called ‘traditional medicine’ and big pharma. You owe it to your health to look into what he has to say.

Incidentally, if you have a pet, there are also articles on common problems which you may find very useful.

Just to underline my own enthusiasm for this site, I should tell you that I frequently add comments on the articles myself under the name ‘invisipics.’

Need I say more?


Have a great week!
