Legendary music icon Neil Young will be taking a stand against Monsanto in his latest album release, The Monsanto Years. In a move that highlights just how far awareness on the issue of Monsanto’s toxic creations has come, Young will be working with the Willie Nelson sons in highlighting Monsanto’s activities within the new album.
Just looking at the list of new songs on the collection are revealing enough to the central message of the album. Some of the track titles include “Seeds,” “Too Big to Fail,” “Monsanto Years,” and “Rock Starbucks.”
It was back in November of 2014 when Young called for a boycott of Starbucks for their attempts to squash GMO labeling in Vermont. As Rolling Stone reported:
“Neil Young is seeking a new source for his daily latte. The rocker announced on his website this week that he’s boycotting Starbucks over the coffee company’s involvement in a lawsuit against the state of Vermont’s new requirements to label genetically modified ingredients.”
Now, Young’s new album stands as a precise indicator of just how far and wide the alarm has sounded over Monsanto’s cancer-linked chemicals. With international health agencies now confirming what we have been warning you about for years, the resistance to treating our food supply as a chemical waste dump is growing. Whether it’s Neil Young, Chuck Norris, or Dr. Oz, I am glad to have major celebrities joining us in the fight for our health.
