Merry Christmas….and here’s my gift to you.
DON’T BUY GMO foods or use RoundUp
Okay, this may not seem like an appropriate post during the holidays but what greater gift can you give yourself, your family than good health?
If you want to eat healthier and don’t want to grow it yourself, if you want to support local farmers and growers and walk a bit softly on the earth we call home, perhaps 2016 is the year you get started.
One of the easiest ways to begin your quest for health is to READ and decide to buy or not buy based on what the product is, what it contains and who made it.
It’s common knowledge that one of the easiest things to do is cut out GMO products – cut them out, get rid of processed foods, start buying and eating organic.
Now Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Brain Maker and Brain Game, adds his voice to those warning about GMOs but his information is a bit more frightening than any I have read before (and I have read an awful lot about this topic).
Dr. Perlmutter shares the most recent and perhaps most damning research that shows that GMOs are the tip of a very unhealthy iceberg called glyphosate. You all know glyphosate more commonly as RoundUp.
Here’s the quote that makes me want to rant, and rave and cry…don’t buy RoundUp or any of its derivatives. Don’t eat GMO food. “Roundup was among the most toxic herbicides and insecticides tested. Most importantly, 8 formulations out of 9 were up to one thousand times more toxic than their active principles.”
Don’t believe Dr. Perlmutter? Read the research yourself.
Try making this your New Year’s resolution: leave the weeds alone! Or eat them. Or pull them. Or burn them. Or pour pretzel salt and white vinegar on them. But for your sake, your family’s sake, the planet’s sake, don’t spray them with RoundUp or any of it’s relatives.
What you spray ends up in the water table, your food, your neighbor’s kids, you. Please, stop. Please.
