I found some hope for the rest or the world against the american corporate juggernaut.

Stories like this telling of how genetically modified foods are frequently found to increased rates of cancer. Or perhaps this review of Life's Delicate Balance: Guide to the causes and prevention of of breast cancer. Which tells us of the shocking conclusion, Breast cancer (as well as others) are caused by carcinogens. Carcinogens that are found through out our environment. For example women moving from asia to north america have dramatic increases in their chances of getting breast cancer, because the stuff is so deeply embedded in our environment.

The reason this hold some hope for the rest of the world--America is killing itself by poisoning its' population. Keep american agri-business and biotech companies out of your countries and you might be able to out-live us.

I really need to learn how to grow my own food... I'm feeling like I can't actually trust any food product where I am not directly aware of under what conditions it grew in.

I wonder if we should be putting unpolluted soil in museums as an endangered ecosystem.

Actually since I really have no idea what I'm doing I don't know what kind of soil I have. The best soil I think I have access to is a small plot of land behind the house I'm living in. It had been used as a garden by a previous tennant and it appears that there's still some stuff growing there.

However right now I'm just trying to learn how to keep houseplants alive... Next I might try for something slightly more challenging like a small herb and/or spice garden.

stuff in the mint family is supposedly very hard to kill... that might be a great start?
