I started eating all organic earlier this year, after watching the movie, “Food, Inc.” After the rather shocking information in that movie, I started watching other food documentaries; “The Future of Food,” “Food Matters,” “The Gerson Miracle,” “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead,” “Deconstructing Supper,” “King Corn,” and several others, including a movie on our “mysterious” dying honeybee populations. Watching these documentaries, and absorbing the information within them, only furthered my resolve to eat all organic. I made a complete lifestyle change, literally, within hours.
I am happy to report that within my first week of eating only and all organic, my low-grade headaches simply disappeared. My skin became clearer. My thinking got sharper. My balance improved. And three months later, most of my “normal” bodily aches and pains have subsided by about 70%.
The arthritis that I thought I was getting in my knees (for the last 4 years) actually seems to be reversing - something I didn’t think was even possible. All this time, I’d thought I was just “getting old.”
You see, I didn’t fully realize that the food I was consuming was actually contributing to what I can only call my premature aging. I didn’t realize that the food I was eating, was actually making me sick. Interestingly enough, I thought I was eating “healthfully,” before - !?! But, I still had the occasional boxed “food” - and the occasional (not often!) fast-food drive thru meal.
I didn’t fully understand what I was consuming - much less that I was consuming GMO’s - Genetically Modified Organisms - in every processed food that I’d been eating since 1996 - largely because there were , and still are no labels to tell me what was IN these “foods”…
Imagine my surprise, when I took myself off all preservatives (which included any and all GMO’s), and discovered that my bodily aches and pains were actually NOT a result of my own, “normal aging” - but more than likely that of poor nutrition, compounded by consuming fruits and vegetables overly-treated with frequent and regular pesticides - ?!?
Going organic is the only major thing that I’ve changed in my lifestyle, to account for my newly increased health and vitality. I took myself off all red meat (unless it’s grass-fed). I don’t eat chickens unless they are free-range, and never given GMO feed. I eat only eggs from humanely treated chickens, free range, and non-GMO fed. I buy only supplements that have the “Non-GMO Project” labeled, clearly. I rarely drink alcohol.
And, for the first time in several years, I finally feel good - so “normal,” again - that I will never go back to eating anything non-organic again. Ever. I feel like I’ve reversed my body’s biological clock by ten years.
My own personal food-journey experience, along with absorbing information from a plethora of food documentaries and many other sources, has given me this epiphany…
Big 6, you are making our population sick with your products - and with the by-products your industries are creating, to produce these products.
You are damaging our environment. You are polluting our air, our water, our animals and our land. Your industries are creating and contributing to toxic greenhouse gases.
Your pesticides are killing our soil, turning out deficient plants, devoid of nutrients. Your GMO foods are as toxic to humans, as the pollution your industries create to our ecosystem and to our Earth.
GMO foods have absolutely NO benefits to humans - other than lining your pockets - both at the expense of the health of our population and the health of our planet.
Your “safety tests” are virtually non-existent on humans. Every independently funded scientific study of GMO’s consumed by lab mice (and other mammals) have resulted in damage to every system and every organ of their bodies, within ten days.
And, Yes. We know about your “revolving door” with the department heads of our government, and all the millions of dollars you have spent on your lobbyists, to keep your Genetically Engineered (GE) foods from being labeled. You have created “the fox guarding the hen house,” and all for profits. You have misconstrued, falsified, and even deleted valuable safety information in your “voluntary testing” of GMO products to the FDA, which prove that your GMO products (I won’t even call them food, as they are actually classified as a pesticide!) are unsafe, toxic, and unfit for human consumption. (Institute for Responsible Technology, Jeffrey M. Smith, author of the books, “Seeds of Deception,” and “Genetic Roulette.”)
You have a history of lying to the government and our people on this planet, about the safety of your products.
Your GMO products, and your pesticides are the major contributing cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) of our bees. You are making us sick, and you are killing us. All of us. And all for your own profit.
But I ask you - where will all of those profits leave you, in the end - ? When our population has been properly culled by your toxic crops and your pesticides… When the super bugs and the super weeds (that your GMO crops have created) continue to build resistance to your pesticide crops, and they come and wipe out your huge monocultures of corn, soy, cotton and canola - ? Where will that leave you, or any of us for that matter, when there is no other biodiversity left, due directly to your GMO contamination and DNA pollution to our planet - ?? Our planet, which would otherwise sustain normal vegetation - but can’t, in our soil now left dead from your monocultures and your pesticide overuse…?
…When our waters and our lands are so polluted with chemical toxins, which your companies created by illegal dumping (Monsanto - Aniston, Alabama; Vietnam; etc.)…? Even your huge mega-billion-dollar profits (made at our expense) won’t be able to buy you or any survivor, a brand new, virgin-clean Earth to start all over, again. This is it, folks ~ !
What you are doing (and have been doing, for decades) is irresponsible to our limited and fragile ecosystem. And, it isn’t sustainable.
I, for one, will be growing my own organic food garden in my back yard, this year. I will be shopping at organic Farmer’s Markets. I will can my own organic produce. I will continue to shop at organic stores. I am taking charge of my own health, because you have helped to create a corrupt FDA, that tells me that your products are safe, when in fact, they are anything but. Your products are dangerous.
And I am not alone in my assessments. There is too much information against you and your bullying tactics, and a vastly growing trend in our “99%” masses that agree with these sentiments.
I, for one, will not be funding your companies, your pesticides, your drugs, or your greed-driven insanity.
I believe that organic farming is the ONLY way to feed the world, effectively, nutritionally, and sustainably.
But I’ve figured out by now that that never was, and never has been your motive. Your claim of the need to “feed the world,” I believe, is just another red herring. With all the information out there - including secret documents from your company exhumed in a lawsuit - it seems quite clear to me that your motive is to thin our population - and/or to keep us sick…
Because sick people have to pay the drug companies. Dead people don’t pay - and neither do healthy people…
The real money lies in keeping the majority of the population sick - and still purchasing and consuming the very products (unknowingly, without labels, so that your companies can conveniently try to skirt accountability) that are making us consumers ill in the first place.
I, for one, am stepping off the gerbil wheel that you’ve discretely tried to place before us all. And, I will continue to encourage others to do the same.
I give you a two-thumbs down, “No Confidence” vote. You have unerringly proven time and time again, that you will lie, cheat, bully, and sell your soul for a profit - regardless of the long-term effects your products are having - and will continue to have on our population, our children, our ecosystem, our animals, our environment, and our planet.
