'so I'm biggering my company'

There's a principle in business, that everybody knows is sound,
It says the people with the money, make this ever-loving world go ‘round.
So I’m biggering my company, I’m biggering my factory,
I’m biggering my corporate sign.
Everybody out there can take care of yours,
And me? I’ll take care of mine mine mine mine mine. – Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

Trump just unveiled his vision for America: Let corporations pollute at will.

Trump’s plan to gut EPA and USDA regulations follows a previously announced plan to cut funding for medical research.

One of his prime targets? The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)—the agency that two years ago classified Monsanto’s Roundup as a probable human carcinogen.

With only three days to go, we’re about $60,000 short of our quarterly fundraising goal. Fortunately, Mercola.com, our ally in the battle against Monsanto, has stepped up with a triple match offer. Please help us take advantage of this generous offer by making a donation today.

There's no end to the grim news coming from Washington D.C. these days.

Chemicals in your food and water? Don’t worry.

Global warming? It doesn’t exist.

You may think the situation is hopeless. But you have more power than you think.

Corporations will cheer Trump’s plan to trade short-term corporate profits for your health, and your children’s future.

None will cheer more loudly than Monsanto.

As you know, Monsanto is hoping to “bigger its company” by merging with another of the world’s worst chemicals companies, Bayer.

But Bayer may not be so keen to buy Monsanto, if the lawsuits against the maker of Roundup keep piling up, if the number of acres planted in GMO crops continues to decline, and if the EPA decides against reregistering glyphosate because the agency can no longer deny the allegations that some of its own officials colluded with Monsanto to bury evidence that glyphosate causes cancer.

In the coming weeks and months, with your help, we will push for a Congressional investigation into the possibility that Monsanto and the EPA hid the truth from you about the health risks of Roundup.

 We will call on you to visit your Congress members in their home offices, and demand to know the truth about what went on behind closed doors at the EPA.

You will help us bring victims of Roundup to Washington, where they will make the case that Monsanto knew about the link between Roundup and cancer. (More than 700 people have sued Monsanto because they, or a family member, developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after being exposed to Roundup).

You’ve probably reduced your own exposure to Roundup by avoiding GMO foods.

But it would be nearly impossible to avoid glyphosate altogether. Why? Because only 20 percent of GMO crops go into food. Twice as much goes into animal feed for factory farms. Another 40 percent are used to make ethanol.

History will no doubt rank glyphosate as one of the worst scourges unleashed on the human race.

Your relentless pursuit of the truth, and concern for the future, are our best hope for ridding the world of Roundup.

We're down to the wire, and we're still about $60,000 short of our quarterly fundraising goal. Fortunately, Mercola.com, our ally in the battle against Monsanto, has stepped up with a triple match offer. Please help us take advantage of this generous offer by making a donation today.

In Gratitude and Hope,
