What do you need to know to provide healthy food for your kids?
Here’s an important new finding:
After reducing GMOs in their diets, 3,256 people reported improvements in 28 health conditions. Amazingly, many of these conditions were “nearly” or “completely” resolved.
Jeffrey Smith, executive director of The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), summarizes the findings:
“We can now say with confidence that numerous people experience improvements in a wide variety of health conditions after switching to non-GMO diets. Not everyone responds the same way, but the changes are often significant, with many reporting long-lasting conditions going away completely. In addition to chronic issues like digestive disorders, obesity, immune conditions, skin problems, pain, and blood pressure, there are also changes that can enhance the quality of life for relatively healthy people. These include more energy, relief from brain fog, reduced anxiety and depression, improved sleep, better memory, and enhanced ability to concentrate.” Read the full article
This makes sense because the process of genetic engineering can generate allergens, toxins and anti-nutrients in the food that can contribute to all these chronic health issues. If you want your kids to eat heathy, the food must be non-GMO.
But let’s go one step further.
Serve your family ONLY organic food. That’s really the best way to make sure you’re not eating GMOs since they’re not allowed in organic food. And honestly, GMO-free is not enough. You need to avoid all conventionally grown foods.
Pesticide residues in conventional food, even tiny amounts, can cause cancer and devastating effects on the reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. Babies, children, and pregnant or nursing mothers are most at risk for adverse effects from exposure to pesticides. Exposures during vulnerable periods of brain development are particularly dangerous.
Conventional farming also uses chemical fertilizers containing high levels of mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum and antimony. Synthetic herbicides are also widely used. The most pervasive herbicide sprayed on food grown in the U.S. is Roundup.
Here’s what you need to know about Roundup:
Roundup’s active ingredient is glyphosate, which is absorbed into the crops so the food contains high residue levels of glyphosate. Roundup (or another glyphosate-based herbicide) is heavily sprayed on GMO crops, but it is also sprayed on many non-GMO crops just before harvest as a desiccant to kill and dry the crop. This can include wheat, oats, rice, flax, peas, lentils, dry beans, sugar cane, rye, triticale, buckwheat, millet, potatoes and sunflowers. Even if these foods are non-GMO, they are likely sprayed with glyphosate – unless they are organic.
Here’s what the IRT says about Roundup:
- is a class 2A carcinogen
- blocks absorption of essential minerals
- interferes with important metabolic pathways
- kills beneficial bacteria and may throw off the health of our microbiome
- is toxic to the energy centers of the cell (mitochondria)
- disrupts hormones, and
- can lead to birth defects.
Organic crops are not allowed to be sprayed with glyphosate!
Why not start buying all organic food for a few weeks and see what happens to the health of your family?
Of course, the big questions is – can you afford to feed your kids organic food?
The answer is YES.
Let’s put it this way – can you afford a child who is chronically ill?
Here’s the good news…
The prices of organic food are way lower now than ever before. Consumer demand for organic food is at an all-time high since parents are saying “no thank you” to poisoned conventional food. Yes, healthy food can be affordable.
The most affordable and satisfying way to provide healthy food for your kids is to grow it yourself. It will connect your family more to nature and home-grown food is the freshest, most healthy food you can get. Yes, it takes a lot of time and energy, but if you’re up for it you can get help from these wonderful people at Urban Farm U:
Another great way is to buy organic food from a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). With a CSA, you can get fresh produce grown locally by a farmer in your area. When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables directly from the farmer. Check here to find a CSA in your area:
If you don’t have what it takes to grow your own food or you don’t have a CSA in your area, soon you will be able to buy most organic non-GMO food online at lower prices than the conventional contaminated food!
Here’s the most exciting news!
We’ve partnered with an influential buying collective that’s growing massive bargaining power to drive down prices on organic non-GMO food. It’s time to eradicate the mass-produced, GMO contaminated, pesticide-laden conventional foods that are poisoning our children!
Only about 5% – 10% of the food in typical grocery stores is “clean”. Most packaged foods contain GMOs and there are no GMO labeling laws so you don’t know what you’re getting. At our buying collective, there is nothing in the store that has GMOs or chemicals. It’s ALL clean food. Isn’t it great to know you can shop at a store where everything is pesticide and GMO-free? You don’t have to think about it, you just know that everything you buy is safe.
Join our buying collective to provide fresh, healthy, clean food to your family for the same prices as the cheap conventional food. Right now (until December 31, 2017) you can get a 100% matching shopping credit. This means that if your first order is $150, you will get a $150 credit for future purchases!
