Poison Patrol

I would never, ever, get angry with you, but sometimes I get upset. Most of the time you don’t stop to think about how much these chemicals can hurt me.

The chemicals I am talking about are called Pesticides and they are on a lot of things you eat. They make me feel sick, cloud my memory, take away my energy, and worse yet, if I have too many of them in me, I may not be able to protect you against illness and disease. That is my number one goal so please help me do my job!

So how do you avoid these chemicals? Start to look at the food you eat and choose foods that don’t contain these horrible things.

I am just saying, when I am happy, things are good! When I am not… well, I think you get the picture.

Happy Happy Day! I Love you!

Pesticides are found in most of our foods nowadays, especially non-organic fruits and vegetables. The Dirty Dozen is a study conducted to show the most toxic fruits and veggies you might eat in your daily life. The problem with these chemicals, is that they accumulate in the fat deposits in the body. They will remain here unless you cleanse them out. Infants and young children are even exposed to these deadly poisons when consuming breast milk. Pregnant women can pass pesticides on to their fetus because those chemicals are going into their bodies from the foods they are eating. Women who eat meat that has been injected with growth hormones and antibiotics, pass these chemicals on to their nursing children as well. According to a study funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) it stated that, eating organic foods provides children with “dramatic and immediate” protection from exposure to pesticides that have been linked to harmful neurological effects.
It is highly important for your health and the health of your children to eat as much organically grown produce as possible, so that you can protect yourself from the dangers of these chemicals.
