(NaturalHealth365) Global soils are the source of all life on land. They produce food, store carbon, and purify water. If topsoil is lost through “bad treatment,” it takes thousands of years until the soil is produced again. Pesticides and chemical poisons qualify as “bad treatment,” and without urgent action to halt the degradation caused by pesticides, pollution, and intensive farming, the future of global soils is bleak.
(NaturalHealth365)Leukemia, a blood cancer related to genetics and DNA, causes more deaths in children than any other cancer. Experts warn that pesticide exposure is partially to blame.
Epidemiological studies confirm that those areas of the United States where the use of certain pesticides are higher may also be responsible for the rise in childhood leukemia. While mortality rates have diminished over the past ten years, actively pursuing preventive lifestyle measures such as limiting exposure to toxic chemicals can dramatically reduce your child’s risk for developing leukemia. →
(Collective-Evolution) It has long been argued that there is no difference in nutritional content between organic crops and conventional crops. However, it’s turning out that this assumption simply isn’t true. It’s no secret that more consumers are seeking organically grown food, coming from the perception that the pesticides sprayed on conventional crops are harmful to human health. But what does the science say? →
A recent study published in the journal Environmental Research examined four families who eat conventional diets. Pesticide levels were measured via urine before switching to an organic diet for 6 days. A dramatic drop in pesticide levels was found.
The pesticides found on conventional foods have been linked to multiple diseases, and some originate from chemical warfare, used as nerve agents. They’re not safe, so why do government regulatory agencies keep telling us they are and approving them?
(Collective-Evolution) Humanity is moving rapidly in different directions, and it would be nice to say the collective is moving forward, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in many areas. Sure, we are becoming far more technologically savvy, and no doubt more advanced in several areas, but all of our advancements seem to be driven by profit, greed, control, and lies as well as the manipulation of our consciousness in order to accept certain developments. Genetically modified foods are a great example, along with a number of pesticides that go along with them. →
(NaturalHealth365) Could making different choices at the grocery store reduce your exposure to harmful pesticides? The answer is yes, according tobreaking research. Choosing organic fruit over conventionally-grown counterparts can dramatically reduce your pesticide exposure, contrary to the popular “wisdom” promoted by the mainstream media. →
(Collective-Evolution) Monsanto is a biotech corporation that was founded in the early 1900s. They produce genetically modified foods (GMOs) and many chemicals that are sprayed onto our food, including several pesticides. A recent study published in the journal Environmental Research titled, “Organic diet intervention significantly reduces urinary pesticide levels in U.S. children and adults” outlined the issue with these chemicals, many of which were actually originally designed by Monsanto as warfare weapons to be used as nerve agents. →
(Natural News) Bees, like many of the world’s insects, are in crisis, and theirnumbers are dwindling at an alarming rate. At the same time, the world’s population – and its reliance on insect-pollinated crops – continues to grow at an equally alarming pace. The bees might be in crisis right now, but pretty soon it will be humans who are in really serious trouble.
Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer Waking Times Glyphosate is Monsanto’s flagship herbicide, appearing in hundreds of agricultural and gardening products, and although it has been linked to cancer and other serious health issues including birth defects and degenerative diseases, the FDA appears to be withholding the fact that this poison is contaminating many of the foods in…Read more
