This report has good news. Glyphosate is the modern DDT — whose lingering presence now decades later it should be noted is still killing people. Like DDT it has been hugely profitable, but grotesquely destructive, not only as intended, but in other ways as well. Now a gathering resistance driven from the bottom up challenges this corporate greed, and is succeeding.

The die-off of commercially raised chickens hasn’t received much attention, even though tens of millions of birds have died, so many that disposing of them has become a logistical nightmare.  But media silence does not mean lack of substance. This situation is telling us something very important about the inherent vulnerability of the industrial-pharmaceutical animal husbandry model. The most interesting part of this story to my mind is the fact that birds that are raised in a wellness as opposed to profit model are NOT succumbing. It took me a while to find a story that described this aspect, since the coverage of this entire event barely rates a yawn in corporate media, but this is a good account. We are being told something very important about our food system; it’s a shame we aren’t listening.
