(Natural News) Sometimes the smallest nations can prove to be the bravest and most progressive in their thinking. Western countries like to believe that they are the most advanced in the world, and they certainly are in some respects, but when it comes to genetically modified crops and avoiding chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, other countries are leaving the West in their dust…Read more
