I have many interests in the world. Lately, I have been following Monsanto and its failure to keep us and our planet in mind. So many things are connected to Monsanto. Our food, water, animals, air, and politics. Despite the lawsuits, stores are refusing to take items off the shelves even though there is research backing up the lawsuits. Then there is the plastic issue. I saw first hand what plastic does to our oceans while on a class trip in college to the Bahamas. Beaches were covered in trash including nets and oil. It is to the point that we have beaches that are literally being made of plastic or covered in oil. This plastic is being eaten into the food chain and unto our dinner plates. I don't know about other countries in the world, but I know that the U.S. has failed its people regarding health. We don't always know where our food comes from and healthy food is so expensive compared to cheaper made food. This cheap food often contains chemicals from entities such as Monsanto and even has plastic particles in it. Sadly, the government run food stamp program has allowed these foods to be bought and consumed. Farmers can no longer say that they know what is in the food due to pesticides being able to go to other crops on the wind. Finding healthy food is becoming a challenge especially on a certain income. People can't plant gardens like they use to and everything is in favor of corporate farms.
I became an Asgardian hoping to help the world in some way, even if it is small. I know that some day all peoples will see and know the truth about our food and water problems and can turn the tide on this political health warfare.
