Neonicotinoids are the most toxic chemicals on the face of the earth. There is abundant scientific evidence which has proven the impact of neonicotinoids. It is only a matter of time before humans begin to see the dramatic affect on our health. Massive bee kills throughout the United States have been reported but industry continues to profit greatly as our honeybee population continues to rapidly decline. Although there have been some measures to restrict the use of these chemicals, due to the sub-lethal effects, only a ban would prevent the pending Disaster In The Making as foretold by Dutch Toxicologist, Dr. Henk Tennekes.
Consumers are confused by the myriad of labels on our food. Industry has done a brilliant job of convincing people that the only difference between natural and organic is the price. GMO labeling has been controversial primarily because it would force transparency. This is something that would negatively impact Big Ag’s bottom line. With the demand for knowledge about where food is grown, how it is grown and who grows it, labeling doesn’t seem to be the solution to an untrusting public.
Canned Hunting and Trophy Hunting
This sport is reducing the global population of many species to the brink of extinction, especially the lions and tigers. Canned hunting or trophy hunting facilities offer their customers the opportunity to kill exotic and native animals trapped within enclosures. Although many hunters and hunting groups are opposed to canned hunting or trophy hunting, there are no international laws prohibiting it. Many people have no idea that these heinous acts are taking place.

Stop Slaughtering Animals For “Medicinal Purposes”
The annual consumption of traditional remedies made of tiger bone, bear gall bladder, rhinoceros horn, dried geckoes and a plethora of other animal parts is of phenomenal proportions. It is believed that today at least 60 per cent of China’s billion-plus inhabitants use medicines of this type.
The use of endangered tiger products and their medicines is seen as a symbol of high status and wealth. Some remedies list tiger parts as an ingredient, but the real animal parts are so expensive that often the medicines may have only trace elements; but even this is enough to promote the continued slaughter of the tiger.

Adopt An Animal From A Shelter
