Jamie's curator insight, December 13, 2012 4:21 PM

This has helped me because it was written from a teenager.  Because I am a teen, knowing what certain things to do now, at this age, can help me to keep a better diet and lifestyle.  Drinking water, getting sleep, eating lots of protien, and exercising are some of the key components to living a healthy lifestyle as a teen.  Following these simple rules will help me to maintain the weight I am at till college.

Monsanto: the Toxic Face of Globalization | Unit 1 | Scoop.it
In the context of today’s historical epoch—the Global Land Grab, in which farmland is being grabbed by multinational corporations from vulnerable populations like small farmers, campesin@s, and Indigenous peoples throughout the world—the March Against Monsanto has taken on a particularly sharp edge. In Ethiopia, where Monsanto has taken up shop through the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, reports have emerged of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people flooding the streets of the capital city, Addis Ababa, to demonstrate against land grabbing.
