(True Activist) With the world and humanity facing a massive disruption in everyday life and economic normality screeching to a halt, the world has given mother nature a forced break that would have never happened without the pandemic occurring.

(NaturalHealth365) Did you know that most processed foods contain additives that are known to cause brain damage and place us at risk for neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and dementia?
Unfortunately, these “excitotoxins” (like aspartame) can be found in just about all heavily processed foods, meaning many canned, bottled and boxed foods. To be clear, the science swirling around about these dangerous substances is pretty grim, as you’ll see. →

(Humans Are Free) Companies in the food industry are experts of deception. They slap clever wording on their labels like “low fat,” “natural,” or “heart healthy” with the intention of making you believe their product is a healthy choice.

(Collective-Evolution) We constantly hear the banter that organic agriculture is simply not sustainable. This is not true, and that’s been made clear by a plethora of literature that’s available on the topic.

This is why these corporate entities spend so much of their revenue marketing the idea that herbicides are necessary, that it’s impossible to grow our food because of pest infestation, and that organic agriculture simply isn’t possible on a large scale, nor economically sustainable. This isn’t true either. →

Because most of what we eat seems to come from China we can assume when it comes to their food safety issues things are rippling down to us as well.
