Pesticides and Sustainable Agriculture

“It is time to overturn the myth that pesticides are necessary to feed the world and create a global process to transition toward safer and healthier food and agricultural production,” UN Experts.

Toxic Pesticides Are Not an Irreplaceable Farming Necessity

Even more importantly, the UN report firmly denies the idea that pesticides are essential to ensure sufficient amounts of food for a growing world population, calling the notion “a myth.”13

Preventing Chronic Disease

Chronic Disease

It might surprise you to know that mountains of research are piling up on the idea that all of these illnesses have a common cause. Not only our country but the civilized world has been growing not only diagnosed illnesses but in many cases undiagnosed numbers of cases that are staggering..

The Common Denominator

When an isolated tribe or society in parts of the world where trade was not common are discovered, without exception these societal groups do not suffer from any of these chronic diseases. These disease occur only in modern society. When trade begins with an isolated societal group and western packaged foods and medicines are made available, all of these chronic disease begin to occur within the first generation.

Western food and medicine are clearly at the root of chronic diseases.

Where to Start

When we look at illnesses like cancer, it is clear that radiation and chemo-therapy are clearly not cures for cancer. Their longer term success rate are often shadowed by statistics for short term remission but zapping the body with radiation and burning out cancer cells that are otherwise immortal is only a temporary and very painful cure that generally kills all but the very healthy and sets the stage for hundreds of new illnesses that occur when your immune system has already failed.

The root cause of cancer is a weak immune system. The immune system carries away cancer cells which we all have all of the time. Our normal functioning body knows how to handle cancer cells but something else in our environment has weakened our immune system and made us targets for illnesses like cancer.

No Cure for Cancer

I heard someone say the other day that there was no cure yet for cancer. We were discussing the Susan G. Koman Foundation, the massive funds they have raised, and reports that they have not been involved in any research that promised a cure for cancer.

It suddenly dawned on me that everyone thinks there aren’t any cures for cancer when there clearly are as recently chronicled by the documentary, “The Truth About Cancer.” Most people are actually certain that there isn’t a cure for cancer while massive evidence exists to the contrary.

Of course confusion is created by the massive lobbies for cancer treatment. The FDA and government agencies in general have proven to be ruthless by driving alternative medicine clinics out of business, destroying all patient records and sometimes even placing physicians in jail for not prescribing the standard treatments for cancer. It’s clear from hundreds of true stories that the pharmaceutical companies intend to force their costly solutions on every cancer patient in the world as long a there is someone to pay for it.

Mechanics of a Chronic Disease

Chronic Disease generally shows up first with the weakest organ in the body. For most women that the thyroid and Hashimotos and Graves Disease begin to show up first. There are millions of cases of these illnesses and the lab test markers will often show up 10 years before systems become to strong to ignore.

In other cases, the problems show up in the liver or pancreases and the symptoms become obesity and diabetes.

The common mechanism for all of these conditions is chronic inflammation. A sustained use of the immune system until it weakens and burns out.

Pharmaceutical companies know your immune system is compromised.They’re selling you drugs that generally weaken the immune system even more. They know that almost everyone suffers from some level of auto-immune disease, a condition that has the body attacking its own organs.

The world of auto-immunity is a very fertile development environment for families and generations of drugs that do their work by suppressing an over-active immune system.

Some people have skin and nerve disorders that show up at itching or fiber myalgia and others develop a general brain fog and comes with a variety of organ failures and eventually Alzheimers. There are whole families of symptoms for skins or all of the bodily organs while the immune system attacks these and causes them to fail.

If the root cause of the auto-immune of located and addressed, the body gradually heals itself, the immune system begins to function again, and the symptoms gradually reside.

What Causes Inflammation?

There are so many competing environmental factors that it is unlikely that you suffer from just one cause but more likely there are many.

Even though you might suffer from a simple allergy to things that grow and blow outdoors, in the past 20 years we increased the potential toxins in the air. Each year we produce more chemicals and those chemicals generally go into the ground and into the air. And just like DDT, our chemicals from with a very strong PR package that causes us to believe they are entirely safe to humans only to find years later that they are not.

The current round is Round-up and Glyphosate, but soon that will be replaced just like DDT, the next bigger chemical and PR package that states that it’s much safer than the old chemicals. Most people are not only allergic to the chemicals but the genetically modified crops that go with them. Yes, most people have some allergy to GMOs.

But all of these chemicals attack the human gut in ways that we do not fully understand. But it is clear that 80% of the human immune system resides in the gut.

And among the strongest influences not yet discussed are the foods we eat. As our society developed, we replaced real live whole foods with packaged foods. We began to change how we raised beef, pork, and chicken. And slowly the amount of dangerous and toxic hormones and antibiotics has risen to the point where almost any prepared or packaged food whether vegetable, fruit, or ranch cannot be eaten without compromising your immune system.

Some of the same companies who sell the GMO seeds and Round-Up also own pharmaceutical companies who make a better profit as long as you remain ill for the rest of your life. Seems that this truth is so monstrous that most people refuse to believe it.

And you can add vaccinations to that list as well. It has been clear for a long time that pharmaceutical companies spend millions to get the law enforcement agencies to believe that those who are not vaccinated should be separated from the rest of society or forced to undergo vaccination against their will.

But meanwhile we’ve generally adopted the belief that “government knows best” without realizing that “government” is the big pharmaceutical companies and not some decision that we participated in.

Inflammation is the body’s normal response when we get a cut or an injury. But those things heal and inflammation goes away. What happens when inflammation is continuous and never goes away?

What to Do?

It would be easy to recommend a number of steps at this point to reduce inflammation but there are so many potential causes as to make any recommendation too general or incorrect as to be irrelevant.

In general I recommend:

  1. Get tested and find out what factors are causing your inflammation.
  2. Remove the root causes of inflammation.

Overall, it is clear that you cannot rely on most physicians to help you with this. Physicians other than functional medicine physicians are not educated to treat the root cause of disease. Medical school and the curriculum used is mainly funded by the pharmaceutical industry and has it primary focus on diagnosis and prescription – identify the symptoms and prescribe the drug.

Too impatient to get the lab tests done?

  1. Eliminate all grains from your diet.
  2. Eliminate all dairy from your diet.
  3. Eliminate all packaged foods from your diet.
  4. Eliminate all refined sugar and flour from your diet.
  5. Eliminate all vegetable oils from your diet.
  6. Eliminate all beef that is not 100% grass-fed and finished.
  7. Eliminate all chicken and eggs that are not 100% free range.
  8. Eat organic as often as possible.

Then see what symptoms go away.
