Just more reason to stop pesticide use until we understand what it does to us & the world better.

This was to happen sooner or later.

Guess all of us here are quite unhappy to live this moment.....

This is one more reason why purchasing local and sustainable is so important.

Please note: I am sick of Care2 not being able to stop spammers like "Cher" and her "friends" but then goes on to ban a someone like Zen Whisper Tree, who has been a big help to all of us!

Viruses are also intelligent to find new residences! These may infest humans also! Let us support only 'sustainable development'. The current 'development' is just destruction of entire life on Mother Earth!
