We here at HNN (Health Nut News) are absolutely devastated to hear that our fellow activist, world-famous Mila de Mier of Key West, Fla., was found dead yesterday in a hotel pool. Authorities were called on Tuesday morning to the Cambria Hotel & Suites Washington, D.C. Convention Center because a witness found an unconscious woman floating inside the rooftop pool and called 911. 1

According to the emergency crews who responded she was unable to be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Tell the EPA NO Genetically Modified Mosquitoes!

SIGN THE PETITION MILA WAS WORKING ON HERE! Help us keep her strong memory alive by signing. Share on your wall, too.

Mila was a very well known activist who fought hard against GMO’s and the use of GM mosquitos in Florida. In fact, she fought them so hard she was known to be a nemesis of the GMO mosquito industry. Is that perhaps why the “witness” who found her floating in the pool didn’t try and get her out of the pool? Is that why they didn’t try, like any normal human being would, to perform CPR (some are asking)?

Mila had been featured on the front of Bloomberg, ABC evening news and countless other publications for her endless campaigning.


My phone has been ringing off the hook since this news broke. And there are so many questions. For example, a close mutual friend of mine and Mila’s wants to know why officials ran so fast with this story? We have been contacted by someone in the family who said they were contacted, but obviously, there were many family members and loved ones who could not all know within a few hours. Shame on mainstream news for doing that in less time than we’ve ever seen.

Mila was there to deliver signatures, the voice of the people, who were standing against GMO mosquitos in Florida. She will be so very missed. She was a giant in our community.

The moment we have more information to share, we will update this story. And I’ll be live talking to you about this all very soon.


We are so devastated. We cannot imagine how her family is feeling. She is survived by three children. Our hearts go out to them right now.  SIGN Mila’s PETITION BELOW!!!!
