3. The overuse of pesticides herbacides and insecticides kills the soil

balance of microorganisms just as the overuse of antibiotics kills the balance of flora in the intestines. These super corporations' hunger for profits are killing the Earth from the ground up. And dead Earth does not hold water, which changes weather patterns.

The soil is a living organism and should contain a diverse array of life forms. I read somewhere that for every 1 pest insect in a balanced ecosystem there will be 1700 beneficial ones. This concept applies to our internal bacteria too, we need beneficial bacteria to kill off the harmful ones.
