Time’s Almost Up, People!

Act as though your life depends upon it..

“If you’re talking about PCBs, Agent Orange, Bovine Growth Hormone, water privatization, bio-piracy, untested/unlabeled genetically engineered organisms, or persecuting small family farmers”,  you’re most likely talking about Monsanto, the World’s Most Hated  Corporation..

There are about 3 seconds left to join OCA’s campaign to mobilize one million consumers to end Monsanto’s global corporate terrorism.

Sign the Millions Against Monsanto petition, demanding the corporation:

  • Stop intimidating small family farmers.
  • Stop force-feeding untested and unlabeled genetically engineered foods on consumers.
  • Stop using billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayers’ money to subsidize genetically engineered crops–cotton, soybeans, corn and canola.

Bonus! Get the facts about Islam A. Siddiqui, Vice President for Science and Regulatory Affairs at CropLife America (you know, those people who sent letters to Michelle Obama, chastising her for not spraying toxic chemicals on the White House’s organic garden) and current nominee for  Chief Agricultural Negotiator, Office of US Trade Rep.

Sardine Salad Sandwich

If you’re one of the millions who’ve given up eating canned tuna because of health and environmental concerns, I have a tip for you.  Substitute sardines.  Wild-caught, boneless, skinless sardines are sustainable, have virtually undetectable levels of mercury/PCBs, are loaded with healthy omega-3s, calcium and B vitamins and taste very much like tuna in things like tuna salad or casserole.  Did I mention inexpensive?
