|Organic is the way to grow.|
We all have industrial chemicals in us from the contaminated food that we eat. But don't worry - our leaders tell us that this slow poisoning is within "acceptable limits".
Herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, thisicides and thaticides. Modern farming is a violent process of killing in order to maximize profits.
But what about maximizing human and environmental health?
Buying organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible reduces the chemical load on the environment and your body. Organic farms are safer for workers, so buying organic tells them we care about their health and well-being.
The following is a list of produce that when grown on industrialized farms are loaded with pesticides that are harmful to bugs and other living things.
These are the first that should be replaced with organically grown alternatives.
The next list is for produce that when grown on industrial farms tends to be treated with pesticides less than the items on the list above.
Sweet peas – frozen
The best case scenario is when we can grow our own fruits and vegetables using organic methods in our backyards and community gardens. We can also support local organic growers and farmer's markets.
That would be the best, cleanest food available.
