Between rBGH and IGF-1 in our milk, and pesticides on our produce, is there anything safe to give our kids? Luckily many farmers share the same concerns that we do, and produce foods that are grown the “old-fashioned” way.
The Organic foods produced by these farmers are free of chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides (weed killer) and anything that is biogenetically engineered. To ensure our children are eating healthy, we should all be purchasing organic products.
Obviously none of us like bugs, and many bugs are harmful to plants. Unfortunately, one of the main ingredients in the pesticides used today was originally developed as a chemical weapon, and is known to cause neurological breakdown and cause cancer. Residues remain on our food, our children eat them…yeah…you see the harm in that?
There has been a rise in the number of people with cancer in the last decade or so…it’s not hard to figure out why! Scientific testing doesn’t lie: 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides and 30% of insecticides have ingredients with the potential of causing cancer. Why don’t I just start feeding my children trace amounts of arsenic? To me, it amounts to the same thing that these food industries are doing: feeding the unsuspecting public poison.
I know what you’re thinking, because I used to think the same way. I thought going organic was just a fad, kind of like all the other fad “diets”. I used to say that “they” are saying everything causes cancer, so why worry about it?
Well, as I said…I’m a researcher, and simply want to protect my children from harm. Have you seen a child with cancer? It’s heart breaking!! I understand it’s hard to believe that corporations would knowingly poison people, and just not care. So, I researched…and researched some more! And now I understand the dangers my children are in.
Choosing organic foods provides our children with the nutrition that they need, and none of the dangerous chemicals they don’t. In fact, organic foods are guaranteed to be toxin-free. So not only are the cancer-causing chemicals not present in organic foods, but they are rich in natural antioxidants which help fight cancer.
Between the poison that Monsanto is putting in our milk, and the poisons that are being used on our produce, I am terrified of what will happen to my children in the future. I love my children more than life itself, as I know you love yours. The food industry ONLY care about their own profits! Why trust them with our children’s wellbeing? Please, help keep our children safe. Do your research about the foods you’ve been feeding your kids. Choose organic foods to keep our next generation safe!
