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.




The Empire Strikes Back

I mentioned recently that I am a huge fan of Dr. Mercola and his site:


I have just left a comment on an article at that site and I thought it important enough to share both with you.

My comment:

“I keep saying to people that we’re in an “Empire Strikes Back” phase and they look perplexed. Yet it’s perfectly obvious to anybody who cares to look that the world is now run by previously unimaginably huge business corporations motivated uniquely by greed. Governments and politicians are controlled by these corporations – they do not have any real power.

We are a far cry from “Small Is Beautiful.”

The only comforting thought in times like this is that historically, no empire has ever survived. There is no particular reason to think that these will either, unless people are incapable of waking up from their technological dream. We must not underestimate the power of the individual, throw our hands up in the air and say,”But what can I do?”

We must vote with our feet. If you don’t like eating crap, then don’t buy it. If the good stuff is more expensive, then eat a little bit less. Put your money where your mouth is. Falling sales are the only thing that speak to these corporations.

This is an important article and should be read by a lot of people. The agro-industry, the scientists and the politicians will try to convince you that GE and increasing pesticides, weed killers and artificial fertilisers are the only way that we will be able to feed the planet in the future. Don’t believe a word of it. Try to inform those around you.

Only if people are properly informed will they be in a position to make a sensible decision.

Good luck to all of us.”
