Dr. Suzanne Simard is a professor with the UBC Faculty of Forestry, where she lectures on and researches the role of mycorrhizae and mycorrhizal networks in tree species migrations with climate change disturbance. Networks of mycorrhizal fungal mycelium have recently been discovered by Professor Suzanne Simard and her graduate students to connect the roots of trees and facilitate the sharing of resources in Douglas-fir forests of interior British Columbia, thereby bolstering their resilience against disturbance or stress and facilitating the establishment of new regeneration.

Monsanto's Genetically Modified ChildrenCan Monsanto chemicals permanently alter your child’s genes? Low-income tobacco farmers face skyrocketing cancer rates with more
devastating repercussions affecting their children: severe physical deformities and mental disabilities. Choosing between poverty or
poison, Latin American growers have no choice but to use harmful chemicals such as glyphosate (in Monsanto’s Roundup) and Bayer’s
Confidor, if they want to certify and sell their crops to Big Tobacco. As patent and regulatory laws continue to favor the profits of
Monsanto and chemical companies, the tobacco makes its way into the hands and mouths of consumers worldwide in Philip Morris
tobacco products, while the poisons used to harvest the crops contaminate the farmers’ blood and are modifying the human genome,
creating genetically modified children.
