GMO PringlesWhat? Pringles are made by Kellogg’s?? Tell Kellogg’s you won’t buy GMO Pringles because you don’t want your blood cells & bone marrow damaged by the Bt toxic corn in their fake Pringle’s chips. BOYCOTT ALL KELLOGG’S products until they stop fighting GMO labeling, remove GMOs and GET INDEPENDENT VERIFICATION. No voluntary labeling.

Roundup Tolerant GMO Crops Lead to Superweeds

GMO - Super Duper WeedsThe USDA is nearly set to approve Dow’s 2,4-D GMO crops, which experts say will hurl us into a worsening chemical war on weeds – one that we will never win. We get an increasingly polluted environment and toxin-filled bodies, while Dow rakes in billions selling more chemicals to GMO farmers stuck on the chemical treadmill. 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) is a hazardous herbicide linked to increased rates of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, low sperm counts in farmers and birth anomalies, and has also been shown to cause liver and nerve damage, as well as hormonal disruption.

STOP THE MADNESS. TELL THE USDA: NO 2,4-D GMO CROPS!!!

Darwin’s childhood garden now Wildlife Trust property

Republicans continue to punish those that are suffering as a result of their economic stagnation efforts.

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from England is called Visit Charles Darwin‘s Shrewsbury, the birthplace of evolution!

From Wildlife Extra:

Darwin’s garden purchased

“No other part of Darwin’s childhood home is accessible to the public, so when we were offered the chance to buy this slip of woodland next to the river, we were thrilled at the opportunity to open up a cherished corner of his world,” said Colin Preston, Director of Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

While much of the land previously attached to The Mount, his birthplace, has disappeared under housing, other parts survived in private gardens, including the land the Trust has bought.

Through the wood, alongside an ice house once used by the Darwins, runs a path with views down to the River Severn
