Merry Christmas from the Monsanto Protection Agency
All Monsanto wanted for Christmas was another gift from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Sure enough, the EPA (or as we prefer to call it, the Monsanto Protection Agency) handed out that early Christmas gift this week.
Ignoring mountains of research to the contrary, the EPA just proclaimed that Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller is “not harmful to humans.”
Ho. Ho. Ho.
We’re not buying the EPA’s propaganda.
What we are doing is gearing up to fight back harder than ever against the poisoning of your food, water and soil.
Our Millions Against Monsanto campaign will succeed. But only if millions of us stick together. We have limited time to take advantage of a generous triple match offer. Can you help us meet our year-end budget by making a donation today? You can donate online, by phone or by mail—details here.
I don’t have to convince you that growing food with poison is a bad idea.
And I’m not sure we’ll ever convince the EPA, which eats out of the hands of corporations like Monsanto, DowDupont and others, to do the right thing.
But our Millions Against Monsanto campaign isn’t just about battling Monsanto.
It’s also about rallying consumers around supporting the good food production and farming practices.
When consumers are armed with knowledge, they change their buying habits.
When consumers demand healthier food, better conditions for workers, more humane treatment of animals, and a cleaner environment, sooner or later corporations either change their ways—or go on their way.
News like the EPA’s announcement this week is discouraging.
But there’s also a whole lot of encouraging news these days—and that’s thanks to consumers like you who help us, day in and day out, send this message to food producers: We want better.
Better food. Better communities. Better health.
Thanks to all of you who piled on against the corporations that sided with the Grocery Manufacturers Association over GMO labeling, food companies are abandoning the once-powerful GMA.
Six of the largest food companies have dropped out of Big Food’s lobbying group.
A drop in membership fees means fewer dollars to bribe politicians. Less money to throw around translates into less influence over food policy.
Big corporations are beginning to understand that organic, regenerative, pasture-raised, grass-fed—these aren’t just passing fads. They’re rising trends.
Consumers have connected the dots between good food and good health.
And we’re frankly sick of bad health caused by bad food.
When it comes to the food movement, winning doesn’t always come in the form of big headlines, or big policy wins.
Rather, our progress is measured in consistent movement in the right direction, in subtle but clear shifts in consumer perception and purchasing trends.
And sometimes, in small but powerful acts of rebellion.
We kicked off our year-end fundraising campaign with this quote from the Roman poet, Virgil:
“The greatest wealth is health.”
This holiday season we wish you great wealth in the form of great health.
We’re so grateful that once again, Mercola.com and Dr. Bronner’s, through their charitable foundations, have each stepped up to match your donations up to $225,000, until midnight December 31.
That means the gift you give today, will have triple the impact.
Your donation will help us meet our year-end budget and fuel our Millions Against Monsanto campaign. You can donate online, by phone or mail, details here.
From all of us at OCA, a sincere thank you for making this work possible.
P.S. Your donation can be tripled only if made by midnight December 31. You can donate online, by mail or by phone, details here. Thank you!
