Cotton Kills

Cotton is a great fiber for clothing if grown without chemical intervention, GMO (GM or Bt)modifications and where water is not an issue.

However that is a small part of this industries yield and instead the GM horror stories are mounting. (Because pesticides and fertilizers are "yesterdays papers" and the water thing is in an issue in throes of major denial)

"Thousands of sheep, buffalo, and goats in India died after grazing on Bt cotton plants"


"Before the FDA decided to allow GMOs into food without labeling, FDA scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. They urged long-term safety studies, but were ignored." More at the Instute for Responsible Technology.

Shame on you, corporate bullies! Like what about your own children....what are you thinking? What is up with humans?
