Mother Earth – The Healing Must Begin

SOME GREAT NEWS for those who have chosen to live healthily and in harmony with this planet-home we call Mother Earth: Monsanto’s MON810, a genetically-modified (GM) variety of maize (corn) that kills bees, has been banned by the Polish government. Their MON810 and the chemicals in it have been found to be at least partially responsible for causing Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), the worldwide phenomenon in which entire swarms of honey bees disappear or turn up dead. Hopefully governments will think twice about other Monsanto products that are slowly killing the planet. Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/036010_Poland_Monsanto_GM_corn.html

    I recently saw the movie “Food Inc.” when I first learned about all the genetically modified soy beans that Monsanto is dominating the market with and was disturbed at both their practice of seed recovery from farmers and their network of informers to ensure ownership of their patented seeds. I was unaware of their genetically modified corn which is killing bees. Who can I contact to express concern about this much biggers issue. Bees are important for fertilizing crops worldwide.

      Indeed, GMO products in any form, have far-reaching impacts that inevitably find their way to us and our children and our earth. Personally, I would write to elected officials and specific agencies within the government. Email is actually a useful tool to establish a dialogue with someone who will listen since we are able to broadcast our concerns to a broader audience and document every step of our journey.
      I am including a link that will show you access to the (USA) agencies and branches and elected officials .

      Deena, thanks for taking the time to respond. It’s a big issue that bothers me a great deal too. US officials will still say they’re not sure why the bees are dying in such huge numbers, but in other parts of the world, governments are acting. Austria, Hungary, Greece, France, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Germany and now Poland, are countries that have banned MON810, which may be only one of the reasons for Colony Collapse Disorder, but one that they are taking very seriously. Canada and the US are reluctantly willing to review the pesticides Bayer produces – a valid co-culprit – but remain in denial, where MON810 is concerned. I’ve managed to find someone who can best advise you on who to contact (Edward), so stay tuned!

    What a breath of fresh air, your blog. Your choice of title “Mother Earth – The Healing Must Begin”, resonated with the deepest part of my being, and enkindled a spark of desire to do my bit for healing the earth, however small it may be. And certainly the incredible fact that a government has taken such a decisive step in that direction is good news indeed! Thanks!

      More and more people are thinking like you, Fay. But I’m not sure when the general populace and big corps will realize that for every part of this planet we destroy, a part of us dies too, both literally and figuratively. As the saying goes, ‘Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.’
