    Video: What Happens When A Family Eats Only Organic For Two Weeks

    As said by Dr. Jesse Henley, pesticides kill pests by damaging their cellular structure. Though pesticides, fungicides, growth regulators, and herbicides were meant to control how a plant grows, there is no doubt that they affect us too – and we are using more pesticides and herbicides than ever.

    Advice From A Dying Man

    “I am only 24 years old, yet I have actually already chosen my last tie. It’s the one that I will wear on my funeral a few months from now.

    What Humans Are Really Doing to Our Planet, in 19 Jaw-Dropping Images

    Stop Saying “Moderate Muslims.” You’re Only Empowering Islamophobes.
