“DON’T WORRY, IT’S SAFE”

roundup-cropped-500

What causes the disconnect between our eyes and our brains? How can we view this picture and not question the POSSIBILITY that pesticide spraying of our crops is detrimental to our HEALTH? How can we stare directly at the PROTECTIVE SUITS needed to apply these dangerous products and believe these poisons do not affect the safety of the foods we eat? How can we believe the 12-15 re-applications (on average of some crops¹) of these pesticides don’t magnify the harmful residue toxins on these foods?

If I sprayed Roundup (the most common pesticide used) directly on your fruit and let it dry, repeated this process 12-15 times, and handed you the fruit, would you eat it without any reservations?

WOULD YOU EAT IT AT ALL?

.

Is the food YOU EAT any less dangerous because you don’t WITNESS the repeated spraying of these crops? At what point do you begin realizing the INSANITY in this?

What makes you believe this food is SAFE (let alone healthy?) Now that science has genetically modified various crops, these same foods can withstand even greater frequencies and intensities of pesticide spraying without causing VISUAL HARM.

…AND STILL NO OBJECTIONS FROM THE CONSUMER?…

.

WHAT ARE THE EXCUSES FOR THIS BEHAVIOR?

  1. Organic is too expensive?” How much cheaper is disease and gradual death?

  2. I don’t have the time!” Do you have the time for self induced disease by consuming these foods?

  3. I don’t really think it’s that bad!” Then why won’t you eat the fruit I spray 12-15 times with Roundup? What’s the difference? Do you think washing your fruits and vegetables with tap water magically gets rid of these toxic residues?

4. “I DON’T WANT TO BELIEVE THIS IS TRUE!”

Now we’re getting somewhere. I understand and empathize with this sentiment. But, not wanting to believe doesn’t undo the harm we’re causing ourselves. More and more diseases are showing their ugly faces. Autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal diseases and neurodevelopmental diseases are growing significantly in numbers. How are we dealing with this growing problem?

NEW PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS?

.

So, after we consume these toxic crops that overwhelm our body’s filtering systems (liver and kidneys) we want to believe the SOLUTION is synthetic drugs. Rather than implementing REAL (HEALTHY) FOODS to combat disease reducing stress on our bodies, we choose DRUGS which place even greater stresses on our liver and kidneys.

Next, we add to this equation fast foods and processed foods full of artificial ingredients, preservatives and dyes that contribute to increasing rates of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and obesity.

.

MAYBE THIS RISE IN DISEASES HAS MORE TO DO WITH THE WAY WE’RE LIVING OUR LIVES, THAN THE LACK OF PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS HITTING THE MARKET!

.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

.

Basically, I see ONLY two options:

.

1. You can open your eyes to the reality of the life your living and begin changing your ways to a lifestyle that promotes GOOD HEALTH and OPPORTUNITY for QUALITY LIVING

OR

2. You can keep your eyes tightly shut to avoid witnessing the self induced destruction YOU’RE INFLICTING on yourself!

.

To help incentivize you to choose option #1, consider the following statement:

DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THE CORPORATE EXECUTIVE FAMILIES IN BIG AGRIBUSINESS EAT THESE CONTAMINATED CROPS?

  1. Well said. I just watched the first three parts of “The Truth About Cancer” series and it’s very eye-opening! So much good info and they talked about GMO’s as well. We need to educate ourselves on our food and product choices.

    1. I purchased the series some time ago. It has a good deal of valuable information that needs to be shared with the public.

      1. I completely agree.

  2. Sadly our food, water and even the air we breathe are becoming hazardous to our survival without the debilitating diseases caused by all the toxins allowed to filter in the ground, water and the environment. With all the deregulations in the work, I don’t see how this is going to improve. I personally chose to consume only organic products whenever possible. It is a choice every individual have to make for themselves.

    1. Interestingly, most people need a NEGATIVE impact on their life to improve their lifestyle habits when a POSITIVE impact (like self respect and self value) produces the same desired end result. Changing the THINKING in our country would have an enormous impact on quality health and living.

  3. Doc your last few articles have seriously shaken my belief on what I am eating and being a mother what I am letting my Kid to eat. But then I am not very sure about what to adopt to eat safe and healthy as well . I will highly appreciate if you could write something about solution to the problem.

    1. If you look under my heading of NUTRITION, you will find many articles relating to your request. I can tell you a great starting place is REAL FOOD. This is defined as organic agricultural products, naturally raised and properly fed animal and poultry and wild caught fish.
      If you still have any questions after reading my articles, you can contact me directly or post your question in the comment area so all readers can learn as well.

  5. I remember being told always to wash my apple before eating it. As I have become more aware, I realize this is far from enough !
    I loved this article, it spoke volumes to me.

    1. My goal is to get people THINKING and not simply ACCEPTING “truths” which may or may not be “truths.” It is easy to get complacent and follow patterns DICTATED to us. Since each of us possess our own individual brain, it is my opinion we should use it in our best interest without compromising anyone else in the process.
      Glad the article resonated with you.

  6. Its all so scary anymore….I believe unless you grow your own food and control what you put on it, and then hope the seeds you started with are not a GMO seed, are one of the only safe way to eat fresh veg and fruit products….the milk they sell is full of ABT, the cereal we eat is GMO tainted, its become very hard to believe that anything is good for us any more….very scary…..I hear the planes spraying the fields at night here, whats really safe anymore??? kat

    1. Maintaining GOOD health is becoming more challenging as a result of technology and pressures from stock market investors. The consumer better wake up and smell the coffee before their quality of health is compromised beyond repair. Small incremental steps toward healthier living over time is all it takes.

  7. Nice post. It is true that a lot of us tend to indulge in self deceit as a defense mechanism. You are right though when you say that it doesn’t help. It is much like putting duct tape over the check engine light in your car. You can cover it up all you want, but the underlying problem is still there.

    1. The trick requires a two stage solution. First, people must be made aware they are seeking “band-aide” solutions that only provide (at best) temporary changes. Secondly, they must learn to VALUE their own lives enough to invest the time and effort to CHANGE.

      Not an easy task to undertake, but one that needs undertaking! Hopefully, as people see these messages over and over again, they will (eventually) resonate enough to inspire real change.

    1. The honesty you share adds an emotional level of understanding I would not experience otherwise. You add as much value to my life as I hope to contribute to yours.

    Most of Europe has kept large food manufacturers from spraying poisons on crops and adding lots of chemicals to the food before selling it, but our system rewards politicians and corporation lobbyists for their crimes. They’re even trying to loosen laws on ORGANIC and non-GMO food requirements. Our open rules have allowed the weasels to control the hen house.

    1. I find it interesting our consumers don’t care that many foreign countries will not accept our exports containing GMO products. I find it interesting our consumers don’t care that Russia has banned GMO and supports the organic industry for its people. Getting consumers to care about products potentially dangerous for consumption that don’t produce IMMEDIATE apparent SYMPTOMS is very challenging.
