The dominoes are starting to fall. The evidence damning glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, the #world’s number one herbicide for #weed #control, has become too enormous to ignore.

While it won’t #kill you immediately as demonstrated by foolish Monsanto reps who have been known to drink Roundup in product demonstrations to convince unwitting farmers to use it, the long term effects to #health are nothing short of devastating. Infertility

Kidney disease Birth defects Severe gastrointestinal ailments Parkinson’s Disease Cancer Nervous system damage And the list goes on.

Finally, governments around the world are starting to take action, with the Dutch Parliament in recent days voting to ban all glyphosate-based herbicides including Roundup, from the end of 2015 and beyond.

Restoring the Amazon Rainforest


For years, Antonio Vicente begged his neighbors to listen to his warning. The water in Pouso do Rochedo, Brazil, was going to disappear and, with it, so would the life in this piece of the rainforest. And he was right. But now, after dedicating the last 40 years to reforesting his land, the water is coming back…and it is all thanks to him.

#FeelGood story for the day: #Penguin swims 5,000 miles every year for reunion with the man who saved his life

Retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, who lives in an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro, #Brazil, found the tiny penguin, covered in oil and close to death, lying on rocks on his local #beach in 2011.

Joao cleaned the oil off the penguin’s feathers and fed him a daily diet of fish to build his strength. He named him Dindim.

After a week, he tried to release the penguin back into the sea. But, the bird wouldn’t leave. ‘He stayed with me for 11 months and then, just after he changed his coat with new feathers, he disappeared,’ Joao recalls.

And, just a few months later, Dindim was back. He spotted the fisherman on the beach one day and followed him home.

For the past five years, Dindim has spent eight months of the year with Joao and is believed to spend the rest of the time breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile.

It’s thought he swims up to 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.
