Welcome to Degeneration Nation 2019.
Genetically engineered foods and crops, toxic chemicals and factory farms—the unholy trinity of industrial food and farming—are undermining our very survival.
Public health and the health of the living Earth—our soils, forests, wetlands, watersheds, oceans and climate—are rapidly being destroyed, collateral damage arising from the "profit at any cost" ethos of corporate agribusiness, Big Biotech, Big Pharma and Big Food.
Cancer, chronic disease, obesity, loss of fertility, mass depression, learning disabilities and reproductive disorders have now become the norm, along with environmental degradation. The rhythms and cycles of nature—the atmosphere, the soil carbon cycle, the water cycle, biodiversity, the climate and even the integrity of our DNA—are unraveling.
Can we turn this around? Yes. But we have to take bold and immediate action.
