Check out this clever twist on a classic brand book!

A re-brand of nature in an attempt to persuade people to spend more time outside. Grain Creative have done a great job! A new years resolution?

A different kind of "rebrand";
Drug resistance has gone global, WHO says
"Microbes resistant to frontline antibiotics are now widespread around the world, posing a risk that infections routinely vanquished by drugs in the past won’t be susceptible to them in the future. A World Health Organization report issued April 30 finds high resistance rates in diverse quarters against common microbes causing tuberculosis, pneumonia, diarrhea and infections of the blood, wounds and the urinary tract.

In addition to well-known staph, strep and E. coli bacteria, WHO cites increasing drug resistance in bacteria causing salmonella and gonorrhea as well as in nonbacterial agents that cause HIV and malaria.

Without concerted disease surveillance and collaboration to slow the spread of resistant microbes, the world is headed for a “post-antibiotic era,” warns Keiji Fukuda, WHO assistant director-general for health security."

Post anti-biotic era means rampant disease... :shock:

"5 Dangerous Substances Big Ag Pumps Into Your Meat

Martha Rosenberg, AlterNet | April 29, 2014 12:00 pm | Comments

It is no secret that in the war against meat pathogens in commercial U.S. meat production, the pathogens are winning. The logical result of the tons of antibiotics Big Meat gives livestock (not because they are sick, but to fatten them up) is clear: antibiotics that no longer work against antibiotic-resistant diseases like staph (MRSA), enterococci (VRE) and C.difficile. Antibiotic-resistant infections, once limited to hospitals and nursing homes, can now be acquired in the community, Florida public beaches and on the highway behind a poultry truck." :-&

Of course they also "rebrand nature" with GMOs, too.
