“Artificial manures lead inevitably to artificial nutrition, artificial food, artificial animals, and finally, to artificial men and women.” – Sir Albert Howard, Founder of the Organic Farming Movement (1940)
Today I had an enjoyable conversation with one of my sisters. Our talk started off about what was happening with some younger members of our family, politics, Wells Fargo Senate hearing and then before we knew it, we were in a deep discussion about toxic food and the sliding scale of healthcare.
When it comes to healthcare, I am thankful and feel blessed that I do have full health coverage. But on the other-hand, I am disgusted with the power of Big Pharma and doctors who have built medical empires at their patients expense (physically, emotionally and financially).
I don’t have anything against doctors on the whole. However, I determine my opinion on my one-on-one interactions with the specialists and health professionals attending to my particular condition.
Of late, my snail mail has been nothing but large glossy postcards and colored envelopes advertising about new medical practices moving into our town. In addition to the junk mail my current health insurer has turned over my name to third parties contacting me about in-home visits and completing online surveys.
And I recognize now that I allowed myself to get into this unhealthy condition by eating toxic foods that has been working against my overall health.
Eating the right foods today seems like an impossible task, seeing that our vegetables, fruits, meats, poultry, fish and grains are possibly subjected to chemicals that are the cause of major medical conditions, such as diabetes and cancer.
In order to live the life we want, we must give up the things that are slowly killing us.
Here in part is an interesting article about food and medicine from the website FoodKills.org

“Basically, you die earlier and spend more time disabled if you’re an American rather than a member of most other advanced countries.” – Christopher Murray, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the World Health Organization’s Global Program on Evidence for Health Policy, 2000.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the US ranked 1st in health among the major industrial nations. US spending per capita on health is currently the highest in the world yet the US now ranks 37th in actual health statistics in the top industrial countries and has the highest infant mortality rate. The US also rates 24th in life expectancy… more
It is unfortunate that in our advance society we are getting sicker all due to the demand for having everything microwave ready for quick and easy disposable.
Our food is a major part of our existence and once it becomes our enemy, we will have no one to blame but ourselves. We must with all due effort begin to take action in what we buy and what we eat…it’s not something we can neglect.
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. Genesis 1:29-30
