Lazy Way advocate Fred describes the side effects of agribusiness and the devastating contributions of Monsanto. Why are we surprised that hospitals are overfilled and cancer is common? Click on the link below to read the whole article.
Agribusiness is polluting our (yours, mine and everyone’s) air and water, depleting and eroding our soil, and poisoning our food. We unwittingly ingest all the environmental toxins which agribusiness indiscriminately pours on the earth. And since these toxins cannot be metabolized, the body stores them in the fatty tissue where they have a 40-year half life. There is no way to get rid of them from the body. And studies show their concentrations are increasing at an alarming rate.
Studies also show that these toxins have been associated with hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several types of cancer, and other disorders such as allergies. But farmers and the manufacturers of these poisons don’t care. They happily dump still more of it on our dear Mother Earth and, as a result, more and more of it ends up in our bellies and permanently in our bodies. Even if one government bans a substance because of the environmental havoc it causes, the manufacturer happily sells it for use elsewhere in the world.
And God only knows what future disaster awaits us with all the genetically modified organisms Monsanto et al are foisting on our planet.
(Is there a larger environmental anti
-Christ than Monsanto? They are responsible for one ecological catastrophe after another – DDT, Agent Orange, rGBH, dioxin, PCBs, and Roundup. And now we are trusting Monsanto, a company guilty of lying and covering up their contaminations, when they tell us that their genetically engineered seeds are safe. In my view, Monsanto is a modern day Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi Angel of Death. Actually Monsanto is worse because it is more unconscionable.)
This is why eating organic food is so absolutely important.
