What is the price we pay for coal mining? Destruction of the natural environment that sustains our health.

Carol is a root digger. She digs sassafras root, wild yam, black cohosh, yellowroot, goldenseal, and bloodroot for her mom’s skin cancers. A coal company is destroying her root beds and natural heritage by removing a nearby mountaintop to extract the coal.

Watch the video and understand that we are not alone. Everyone and everything is connected. You cannot destroy one piece of this earth without it affecting another piece. Is stripping the land of coal really worth the awful price?
