Food

“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” Ann Wigmore

When a conglomerate adds something to our food they do it for one reason and that is to gain greater profits. Our wellbeing is seldom considered. In the future we must make the decisions for them if we want both people and planet to flourish and survive.  Matt Foster – Civis Mundi Sum

The first global petition might look something like this:

Directed To: The governments of all 190 (plus) countries of earth.

 “We concerned citizens of this planet, urge you, our political representatives, to introduce legislation that will stop the use of chemicals that are dangerous to the health of people and ultimately end up in the environment where they continue to poison our planet” – Of course some countries already have this. It is however that everyone everywhere should have it.
