Lift the Ban on the USFDA set by the US Geological Survey

  • by: Megan D

Under the Obama administration, the US Geological Survey banned the USFDA from doing any more research and publishing their findings of environmental and health catastrophes caused by mountain top mining. Mountain top mining involves blowing off mountain tops in Appalachia using ammonium nitrate killing plants and animals. The toxins then blast into the air and seep into the water systems. 10 people in a single neighborhood in West Virginia living near a site got brain cancer. We demand the USFDA be allowed to research and publish research so we can put an end to this type of mining that also is killing and endangering the lives of miners who severely lack union rights.
