Dangerous Pesticides and Eating Healthy Fruits – Vegetables.
Learn about Eating Healthy – A new study just released gives a breakdown of which fruits and vegetables are full of dangerous pesticides. Today in a world full of sickness and disease we have to watch out for our selves. It still amazes and shocks me how our government health departments have failed miserably in keeping our food supply safe. I believe we need to all stand together and demand these regulatory health departments be totally re-organized and those responsible in those departments be arrested and jailed for neglect of basic human health. Strong words indeed.
Look at every other problem in our society – if someone is at fault they are punished. Who sets the rules and says yes these dangerous pesticides are allowed to be put in our food supply ? who are these morons playing games with human health ? Many of these chemicals and dangerous pesticides are very harmful to our health and well being. These chemicals have no – I repeat no health benefits for human beings. We have so much unexplained cancer in our society. It seems to have all started with the industrial revolution and the invention of all these chemicals, preservatives, pesticides ect. Yet our government allows this… just as they allow many other destructive products in our society.
It is clear that following the guidelines of our government bodies will result in more sickness and health in our society. The debts – the crisis – the sickness – the war on drugs and disease are all indications the current government policies are not working and do not work. Your government allows food companies to use genetically modified foods without labeling on the package. They say we don’t have a right to know when we are eating GMO – Genetically Modified Foods. Wait a minute … does the goverment have proof of the long term safety on GMO foods ? I don’t think so Tim !!! Well I could go on and on about how bad a job our health departments are doing but lets get back to some helpful education on choosing the right fruits and vegetables for your family dinner table tonite.
We all know we need to eat more fruits and vegetables for our health. Fruits and vegetables are responsible for providing our bodies with many vitamins and minerals. They also provide us with very rare phyto-nutrients responsible for keeping our bodies healthy. Fruits and vegetables are also an important part of our natural fiber intake. Fiber is a big component in human health. Some people say we need to eat organic fruits and vegetables. Some argue that its too expensive to buy organic. Most of us over eat – we eat too much making our selves fat and obese while people are starving to death in some countries around the world. If you have to pay a bit more to eat healthy and because of it you have to eat a little less – That’s not a problem, it could save your life ? When you eat better, eat less, and lose some weight you actually feel better and your body thanks you. If you are looking to attain better health take the 90 Day Health Challenge.
