Science is finally catching up with common sense.
In recent years a number of important studies have been published that show how eating organic food:
- Keeps you healthier
- Makes you less likely to develop diseases such as cancer, parkinson’s and autism.
- And that conventional food does the opposite
You’ve probably already known this for years.
Maybe you’ve had to learn this through painful personal experience.
It was painful, and frustrating.
But that was 20 years ago and that experience launched me into organics, healthy living and taking care of my own health.
I wish I knew then what I know today.
..but sometimes you have to learn the hard way.
Fortunately, we now have scientific facts you can share with friends and loved ones.
…without them looking at you like you’re some kind of woo-woo hippie.
What the science is saying
The scientific studies below clearly show that:
- The more organic food you eat, the less likely you will develop cancer
- Glyphosate (Roundup) exposure has been associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s Disease
- Glyphosate exposure in people is common and has detrimental effects on the brain and human health
- Unacceptable levels of glyphosate are found in conventional cereal grains, particularly breakfast oats.
- And more.
Here are the studies
Association of Frequency of Organic Food Consumption With Cancer Risk: Findings From the NutriNet-Santé Prospective Cohort Study
Conclusion: “A higher frequency of organic food consumption was associated with a reduced risk of cancer.”
Effects of Glyphosate and Roundup™ on the mammalian nervous system: A review
Conclusion: “As with several other herbicides, Roundup exposure has been associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s Disease… There is also some evidence implicating Roundup in elevated risk of autism.”
The impact and toxicity of glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides on health and immunity
Conclusion: “glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides exhibit cytotoxic and genotoxic effects, increase oxidative stress, disrupt the estrogen pathway, impair some cerebral functions, and allegedly correlate with some cancers. Glyphosate effects on the immune system appear to alter the complement cascade, phagocytic function, and lymphocyte responses, and increase the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines in fish. In mammals, including humans, glyphosate mainly has cytotoxic and genotoxic effects, causes inflammation, and affects lymphocyte functions and the interactions between microorganisms and the immune system.”
Thyroid Cancer and Pesticide Use in a Central California Agricultural Area: A Case Control Study
Conclusion: “residential pesticide exposure from agricultural applications is associated with an increased risk of thyroid cancer.”
Glyphosate infiltrates the brain and increases pro-inflammatory cytokine TNFα: implications for neurodegenerative disorders
Conclusion: “exposure to this herbicide may trigger neuro-inflammation in the brain, which may induce changes that are seen in neurodegenerative disorders.”
Roundup for Breakfast, Part 2: In New Tests, Weed Killer Found in All Kids’ Cereals Sampled
“A second round of tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group found the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer in every sample of popular oat-based cereal and other oat-based food marketed to children.”
Roundup Use Pre-harvest – Why desiccate with Roundup?
Instructions from Bayer Cropsciences (Monsanto) about using Roundup to make harvesting easier.
“Current evidence suggests that healthy eating patterns that meet food-based dietary recommendations and nutrient requirements may assist in the prevention and treatment of depression and anxiety”
There are more studies, and this list will be updated over time.
It’s already pretty clear
If you value your health, it’s not worth eating conventional foods that are laden with the same toxic chemicals that scientists now admit can cause severe disease and death.
