As you may know, I bicycled for a year in South America,
top to bottom. I enjoyed the Amazon jungle, the wildlife and especially
the insect life. I took pictures of tens of thousands of butterflies
dancing on an endless canopy of flowers. Many of my columns deal
with saving the natural world such as an international 25-cent deposit-return
law for all plastic, glass and metal containers. We must keep plastics
from destroying our fellow creatures—especially in our oceans.
Today, I appeal to you to use the links provided to send the chemical
giant Monsanto a letter to demand they stop marketing “Round-up” ; “Weed-b-gone”
and other poisons that threaten the extinction of the Monarch butterfly.
Monarch butterflies vanish faster with each passing year -- and all signs
point to Monsanto as the main culprit.
Major press outlets worldwide reported last month that Monarchs face "grave
danger", with their population reaching the lowest numbers ever recorded.
Now, an independent study linked the monarch's decline with Monsanto’s
One of the most beautiful phenomena in the natural world -- the annual
mass migration of 60 million monarchs from Canada to Mexico stands on
the verge of being a relic of history. We need to fight this now, before
it’s too late for the butterflies.
Join me and tell Monsanto to pull its butterfly-killing herbicide before
it’s too late.
“This corporate giant knows what it's doing,” said a spokesperson for
Sum of Us. “But Monsanto says we should balance the butterfly's survival
with what it calls "productive agriculture"(read: Monsanto's bottom line
equals money not nature.).
Tell Monsanto to pull its butterfly-killing herbicide before it’s too
The annual mass migration of 60 million Monarchs from Canada to Mexico
represents one of the most beautiful phenomena in the natural world. I
know because on one of my many cycle trips along the coast of California,
I saw millions of Monarchs hanging from trees during their rest stops.
But Monarchs stand on the verge of being a relic of history, and a key
link in our food chain.
“The monarch butterfly is in a serious, decades-long decline,” said the
spokesperson. “The World Wildlife Fund reported that this winter,
the monarchs are only occupying an area of 1.7 acres in Mexico, down from
45 acres in 1996. An evolutionary strategy based on eating a common weed
seemed smart -- until Monsanto came along. Just one state along the monarchs'
migration route, Iowa, is reported to have lost 98 percent of its milkweed.”
Monsanto products like Roundup dominate the agricultural market worldwide.
This corporate giant sells matching genetically-engineered plants resistant
to its pesticides -- and encourages factory farms to douse fields with
gallons of Monsanto's herbicides.
“But sprayed over vast areas, these poisons effect the entire ecosystem,”
a spokesperson said. “Monsanto's Roundup wipes out the monarchs' primary
food source -- a plant called milkweed. Scientists have linked the monarch's
rapid population decline to the spread of Monsanto's pesticides. Losing
these butterflies means wiping out insects, birds and small mammals that
rely on the monarch and its place in the food chain.”

to extinction. Let’s harness that awareness to save the monarchs from

ABC News special report 11 minute video stand-alone medical breakthrough
Dr. Alice Reed, MD, 10 minute ground breaking presentation:
This 5 minute video is on my website that shows you how to reduce oxidative
stress 40 to 70 percent to stop internal rusting in your body. This is
a "Medical Breakthrough" equal to polio vaccine, penicillin and open heart
The only patented, peer-reviewed "Nrf2" synergizer on the planet that
is scientifically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40
percent in 30 days in 100 percent of all mammals 100 percent of
the time. Oxidative stress is the one common cause of over 200
health concerns and diseases. It is physically impossible to consume
enough anti-oxidants in a day to do what one Protandim caplet daily does.
Scientifically proven to reduce oxidative stress in 30 days by 40 to 70
percent, Protandim turns back your internal age to that of a 20 year old.
It allows you to dance into your 50s, 60s , 70s and beyond.
