Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
Frome the pages of American ANTI Cancer Institute
We've all seen them. Some of them are so common that we don't even think of
them as genetically modified, like the pest-resistant plant varieties now widely
available both as consumable products and in seed form. Then there are the
trendy, novel GMOs like the grapple, the apple-resembling, grape-tasting "fruit". But these categories of GMOs are also just a small part of the whole picture. Most frightening of all: the vast majority of these genetically modified organisms are ingested without the consumer's knowledge! GMO labeling is NOT required in the U.S and it is estimated that more than 2/3 of
all processed foods sold in the U.S contain genetically modified ingredients. What are GMOs? Are GMO products safe?
A genetically modified organism is an organism whose genome has been altered by gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology to create combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. This process is meant to encourage the expression of desired physiological traits or the output of desired biological products and is used primaril in agriculture and biomedical research. Although genetically modified foods have been approved for human consumption in the United States since 1995, more than 30 other countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, have significant restrictions or outright bans on the production of GMOs. They are not considered proven safe. There are serious and legitimate concerns regarding the risks posed to human health and the nearly inevitable creation of new generations of insecticide-resistant “superbugs.” Once GMOs are released into the environment, they are able to interbreed with other organisms and spread freely and we CANNOT foresee the consequences. Nor can we recall these creations back to the laboratories where they were created.
Meet Lynnette Pate, the Organic Guru!
Lynnette Pate is making it her life's work to raise awareness about the
importance of organic foods and to educate the public about the dangers of the
GMO industry, Monsanto in particular. Lynnette's journey to become a
health and wellness expert started as a personal one many years ago after her
son endured 2 near-death experiences and more than 27 surgeries and as she coped
with her own life-long kidney problems. After years of personal research and
study under numerous natural health practitioners, Lynnette now shares her
knowledge in a series of books: Lose Weight…the Pate Weigh, Fuel for the Body,
and This Book is Intended to be Read…What the Food Industry and Government Have
been Hiding from You. To continue her mission to educate the public about
healthy living and what can be done to stop Monsanto and the GMO Invasion,
Lynnette and Team Nation Wide will embark on the Fuel for the Body Bike T.O.U.R.
(Total Organic Understanding Ride). They will be pedaling from
Minneapolis, MN to Gulfport, MS between October 1st - October 31st, 2012.
Do you care for the health of the nation? Do you want to STOP Monsanto?
Do you want to keep YOUR food and health Freedoms?
Then support this T.O.U.R. now!
The NEW and improved Tommy.
As an activist of health and organic living, some may wonder why
anyone in my family would fall prey to any illnesses. In my household, I use NOTHING at all that is toxic or GMO infected. However, because of my clean houshold, my husband, Tommy, thought if "my wife bought it, then it is great for me". This is true, but he would eat the entire organic peanut butter jar by him self in one week, the entire loaf of organic bread to go with it. He was a cheese-a-holic as well. Now, keep in mind that Tommy was very prone to high blood pressure in the beginning before our organic life began in 2005. We completely turned our household upside down after 2 near death experiences with our son and my own kidney failures due to main stream medicines and growing up on Monsanto farming. So we have been organic and clean for several years now. Please read my bio under the ABOUT tab on here. Anyway, my husband also worked out of state many months at a time and found him self eating junk to get him by when he was in a hurry. This in turn slowed him down. I have not spoke of his ailments in a few years as he did not want me bringing it up. Back in 2009, Tommy suffered from severe depression after his father's death and the loss of a job. This depression came on quickly as he had just came off a few contracts that took him away from home so long and eating toxic foods. He fell into depression and gained over 60 lbs! He was sluggish, his blood pressure went sky high, as he was prone to high blood pressure anyway. His energy was way down and his immune system became weak. One night he could barely breathe and was in severe pain. It was in the middle of the night and our holistic doctor was out of the country. I rushed him to the ER, they immediately took him in as they recognized his level of blood pressure was over stroke level. I agreed to let him be admitted so we could get a reading on his BP and see what condition he was really in. He was on the verge of having a stroke. They did give him some liquids and a temporary IV for BP medicine to get him stable. So, yes, I realize that there is a time and place for the use of TEMPORARY meds in the case of an emergency such as this. I let him take the IV and the liquids they gave him to stabalize his heart rate. I was doing this all under the direction of my holistic doc via the phone. We stayed in the ER until his BP and heart rate was stable, this took about 6 hours. After seeing his steadiness and able to breathe normally, I called the nurses in and told them we would be leaving and we would not need any more meds. They insisted on him staying and taking the medications. They also said if he leaves then he needs to get his Rx filled. I told them thank you but no thank you, we would be fine. Took him out of the hospital got him home and in bed. The next day, I rushed him to my holistic doctor who was not out of the country, and we had a complete body reading done on him. She also took the readings that the hospital gave us about his BP. She found the right supplements and herbs to control his BP and his breathing. With the help of CO Q10 and Bromelain, oil of oregano and a complete diet change, he was on his way to relief. We now incorporated my complete protocol from chapter 7 of "Fuel for the Body". Changed his eaing habits completely. I took all peanut butter OUT of the house, all breads and all cheeses. Yes they were all organic, but remember he had a problem of eating it all by him self. Plus, little did I know, peanut butter, whether orgainc or not, can wreak havoc on someone with high blood pressure. It is the shell that habors the fungus that is bad, NOT the peanut. So none the less, I switched to Sunbutter, almond and cashew butter. I only bought the small jars though. :-) I put him on a vegetarian diet, NOT VEGAN, but vegetarian. However, this vegetarian diet was temporary as to detoxify his body. He is back to eating red grass fed humane meats now. So he incorporated my protocol, added more raw vegetables, real salts and toxic free foods in his diet for 3 months. Mind you, he was home now and not out on the road. So I could watch all he did. After 3 months, he was feeling tons better, his blood pressure went down tremendously, he was active, happy, depression free and lost over 60 lbs! By doing it the "Pate Weigh" :-)
So you see, there are many reasons to live naturally and many options you have. It is now 2012, and he is feeling better than ever. However, when he is out on a contract and he goes astray, he feels it immediately and has to detox for a day. But now he knows where and how to shop when I am not with him.
If you are ill, please keep in mind that healing must begin with understanding. You have to go back to the cause of the symptom before you can get the proper remedies. We had to address all foods my husband had ever eaten. He can now eat what ever he wants, as long as it's toxic free and he does steer clear of peanut butter and slows down on the cheese, even thought its organic.
To get better and be able to eat what you want, then you must evaluate your entire diet. For more information, please feel free to message me and / or sign up on our news letters.
Peace & healthiness to you~

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT YOUR ORGANIC FARMERS?
This is the question of the day. Lots of people tell me that they support their local farmers markets so why should they be concerned if the farmer is organic or not?
Some of you may say duh, what are you talking about, to these people. However, the truth of the matter is, that people really have no clue of what they are supporting and really think that if they buy from a local farmer then they are doing a good deed. The sad truth is that even your ‘local’ farmers have no clue of the havoc they are wreaking on the land and what their chemicals are actually doing to destroy other farms of clean grown foods. How can this be you ask? Well, for instance if your local farmer/ gardener has grown their food from their back yards, yet they have used miracle grow to enhance the production of the plant, or round up to kill the so called weeds around the garden and lastly sprayed pesticides all over the garden to keep the un wanted bugs away, then they are NO better than the huge agri farmers out there with mass chemicals in their fields. You see, you are still eating the chemicals even if you are buying from your local farmer/ gardener…you are just eating LOCAL chemicals! These local chemicals wreak the same havoc on our eco system as any other farmer/gardener. It all still goes back into the soil and then into the water supply therefore, leaching out further and further into the soil of the lands.
While some of these farmers really have no clue what detriments they are bringing to society, other farmers
are well aware, but they just do not care and only care of the dollar being made. I have gone to many farmers markets all across the nation. I point blank ask them why they would use such chemicals to grow their garden. They always answer, “well we could not produce the abundance of food we have,
and we could never control the bug infestation or we would not have the largeness of the foods we produce”. You see the truth of the matter is, that you absolutely CAN produce much more vibrant and quality foods with organic methods, plus you absolutely can control the bug infestation by using other GOOD bugs to rid those predators, plus you can feed tons more with crop rotation. However, these farmers always want the FAST & EASY route so they think they do less work.
Keep in mind we are NOT looking for farmers to be USDA certified. We are simply looking for those farmers who practice natural means of farming and use the 'back to the nature' way of growing foods.
The science is finally coming back to us to prove the detriments of all the chemicals used on our earth. Its
like continually pouring oil down the sink drain, yes it goes through and no stoppage in the beginning, but eventually it is going to clog up and stop your water flow. You can put only so much non natural harsh chemicals in the soil when eventually the soil is going to STOP producing the fruits of the land as it once did, then you have to completely re vamp your soils and crops and go back to the beginning to create the foods you once produced.
So by supporting your organic farmers/ gardeners, you are supporting and securing the future of the food supply, you are securing the future of your grand children’s quality of life. So every time you make that purchase, make it ORGANIC. Make your DOLLARS count. When you vote with your dollar, you ARE making a
difference or NOT. What do you choose? Do your own research. Then I invite you to pour yourself a concoction of round up, bleach, pesticide
and miracle grow…will you drink it?
Your Organic Guru: Lynnette Pate 3/8/2012
To all my trusted followers, fans and clients. I feel obligated to write this note as this is the very reason I pedal across the nation on my bicycle tours. Not only speaking OUT against Monsanto and getting our Right 2 Know about what is in our foods and standing UP for your food and health freedoms. But also to "weed the snakes out of the organic grass". As most of you know, I do NOT compromise, I do NOT and will NOT sell out. I represent YOU!
First, let me start by saying that I am a simple person representing the 'simple' person. I have many clients, fans and followers who take my opinion as trustworthy. I have proven myself time and again that I stand by what I say and only bring to light the many fallacies in the healing world. My name is Lynnette Pate, AKA, Organic Guru, author of "Fuel for the Body." Health activist, public speaker, and truth seeker. I do not make the claim to be a certified nutritionist, doctor, or scientist. All my findings are by my own experiences, studies and research. I have, however studied under two great holistic practitioners. (if you want names, please send an email) I have been named as a "Patient Expert" by a national practitioner. I have been on both sides of the fence, meaning I have been in the chemical infested world and sought the advice of western medical doctors. I suffered my own kidney surgery at age 8, then for 25 years spent in and out of hospitals. It wasn't until my son's 2nd near death experience with a deadly disease and 27 surgeries that I was introduced to a "whole new world" in the natural remedy and CURING world. I sat face to face with Merck pharmaceutical reps begging them to release a certain remedy that would actually CURE these kids. When the reps flat out crossed their arms and said NO, "because we cannot put a patent on that," was when my eyes were fully opened. From that moment on I set out on a journey to find all the TRUTHS and cures I possibly could. I also vowed to myself that I would study very closely any company or organization that claims to be saints, truthers, or wonders of information and shine the light on any falsehoods.
I have spent the past 7 years studying, researching and building a very solid reputation with clients, fans, and companies. I have many companies who trust me and I support them and better their sales, public presence and more. I travel across the nation on a bicycle spreading the good message about organic and sustainable living. I also shed light on all the myths about organics and shed light on bogus companies who claim to be organic or green. There is a lot of 'green washing' going on out there to taint the natural / organic world we love. I have found that in the TRUE organic /natural world, that these companies, including myself, do NOT care one bit about stardom, fame or fortune. I realized a long time ago who the real trusted companies are and those that will NOT compromise. (FYI, when they do, I drop them like a hot potato, as I did one company who sent me products wanting to use my name). With this being said, true organic / natural companies will bond together and have a deep trust for one another and there are rarely any complications.
Most of you by now have heard of the "ALIVE New York" event that was to take place on June 29 & 30 of 2012. I want to let you know that I, was at one time their Marketing Director. I agreed to be their marketing director, after meeting in person, Josh and Anna Scurry in Washington state during my west coast bicycle tour in November of 2011. It all sounded very good in the beginning with a great mission and goal to help us gain the health of humans / planet the way it should be. After completing my 45 day bicycle tour in mid
December, I fully started promoting ALIVE. Even before that, I had already started promoting ALIVE all over the place via my bike tour, to the extent of putting their ALIVE NY logo in front and center of my tour banner along with all my other trusted sponsors.
We also went to the extreme of putting the ALIVE logo on the shirt of the very first health doll to be announced to the public. I got ZERO compensation from Alive. Nor did I ask for compensation as I felt this was a worthy cause to get out to the nation and after all they were to benefit a charity (the American Anti-Cancer Institute). The speaker lineup seemed very interesting and valuable. Although the lineup was still being compiled when I met them, Josh & Anna seemed so full of joy, Christian ethics and more. However, upon meeting them in person in WA a few RED FLAGS were raised. (until now I NEVER released this info to anyone, not even my husband). As I am the type person to question the authorities and never make assumptions, plus I was so involved with my tour of events, I had no time to ponder the red flags.
(My husband, Tommy, has been in law enforcement, private security and back ground work for 26 years. He now works to help private citizens get the truth. He is very keen on "snakes in the grasses.")
RED FLAG #1: One of my sponsors sent some vouchers for 30 to 45 days worth of product for 3 people. Just as most of my contributing sponsors always do, they asked if they could send me the vouchers to an address that I would be stopping at. So I asked Josh and Anna if they vouchers could be sent there and them bring to me? They said sure thing. (We stayed in WA about 4 days due to the early arrival and an event that was to be planned on the tour behalf by Josh and Anna.) So when the day came for me to get my product vouchers ,
funny thing... Josh and Anna were house sitting, yet they said they had their own dog / house sitter at their house. So they said, "OMG, we did not know those were YOUR vouchers, so in order for us to pay our sitter, we told her to open the mail and any coupons or vouchers she found, she could just take." What!? are you kidding me? "So you let your sitter have 30-45 days worth of product for 3 people?" "Oh goodness, Lynnette , we are so sorry. Do you think the sponsor can send you more?" Umm, don't think so, the sponsor was very upset and this did not look good on MY part. But I had NEVER had a problem with any products being delivered to my stopping places on my other 1200-mile tours. Again, no time to sit an ponder the problem. I am also the type to say, "It was just an innocent mistake", so I left it at that.
RED FLAG #2: Josh and Anna urged me to "Beware of some of their friends they introduced me to there in WA as some of them had lawsuits against them". I said, gee that's terrible. Keeping an open mind that anybody can sue anyone for anything. So, me being the anti-government person that I am, the statement really did not bother me too badly. However, I did keep that statement in the back of my mind where I kept the voucher issue hidden. This is when they further disclosed to me that a lot of their family was negative and against them and lots of people were degrading them. Again, I am not worrying as they have done nothing personal to me and I have a tour to do.
RED FLAG #3: Josh & Anna needed to come to New York to scope out the "secured" venue of the Marriott and they needed to have meetings to get the word out. So I, being my jolly, happy self and volunteering my husband for all sorts of things he has no clue of, said: "Hey, you two are welcome to stay in my husband's apt. while you are in NYC. His apt. is in the middle of Manhattan where you will be close to all".They of course took me up on that. Once they arrived in NYC, my husband greeted them and opened his doors. He took them out to dinner and showed them around town a bit. My husband then called me to question me stating: "What in the world are you doing? Do you know these kids? Where did you find them and what game are they playing"? I was on the west coast doing my tour of events and simply told my husband: "Oh, not to worry, you are overreacting. They are young but they have some great ideas and have great sources of funding for this benefit". My husband, said: "Well we will see what really happens". He said if someone is putting on the 'EVENT OF THE DECADE', then wouldn't you be on the road constantly making as many meeting contacts as you possibly can and getting flyers out to as many businesses as you can? Would you not be gone all day? According to my husband, they both sat right in his apt., each having a laptop, doing nothing but surfing the web constantly. Then Josh & Anna call me to say that the Marriot is insane to work
with and they decided to move the event to the Hamerstein. This was the first change of venue among the 4 changes they had of venue and dates.
RED FLAG #4: When I returned from my tour of events. I stayed in NYC for a period of time dedicating all my time, energy and money to the promotion of ALIVE. Keep in mind I was doing this of NO promise whatsoever to gain money, I never even signed a contract, yes not smart on my behalf, but remember I said, I work on trust with the database I have acquired over the years. I was running from meeting to meeting to look for organic caterers and so on. Josh & Anna kept me busy constantly with all this, plus emails and Skype meetings and conference calls. They were supposed to be DONATING to the American Anti-Cancer Institute, right? Well I called to question them as to why they did not advertise them except in fine print on the web site? I got all over them about not advertising this institute if in fact they were to donate to them. Finally they started advertising for them. Why did I have to even point this out?
RED FLAG #5: I began seeing more and more celebrities added to their list of "nominees" and "award recipients" who had NOTHING whatsoever to do with Natural health, organics or anything that I stood for. In fact, I speak out against most celebrities. We care nothing about celebs, unless of course they really are true naturalists. I had concerns of this component, so I asked them why these certain celebs? Josh stated to me: "Wow, Lynnette, this is so exciting and awesome that we want to be the Brad & Angelina of the Health world". My jaws dropped. But again, I am thinking, they are young and immature, I will talk to them.
RED FLAG #6: I was sending out letters of solicitation for sponsorship. I was told from the very beginning that they had secured some great sponsors. They even told me that Miranda Kerr was donating $25,000 and that they were just awaiting the arrival of the money. They also told me that one of my own sponsors was setting aside $20,000 for them and that they would release those funds in about 3 months. So this is what I had to go on, their verbal promise and claims. I proceeded to talk to a very good friend of mine and introduce him to Josh and Anna, as I knew he would be the perfect match and could sponsor a great amount. We had a 3-way conference meeting with my friend, Josh and Anna assured him that they were fully funded and that they of course needed the funds to fulfill their commitment to donate to the charities. When my friend was sure enough to release the funds, of course he asked me to get the 'EXIT PLAN' from Josh and Anna. I said, sure thing. When I called Josh and Anna on a Skype call with my husband to ask this question, they simply looked at us in awe and stated: "Lynnette, what do you mean an exit plan? It's NOT going to NOT happen, umm we don't need any exit plan". Um, hello?
RED FLAG #7: Josh & Anna never gave me the proper tools I needed to 'close the sale'. I was walking around in the dark with a blindfold. Every time I asked them for a paper, they sent me some fabricated disclosure without any attorney, or third party's name and none of the papers had Liana's name on it. Also they were NEVER advertising their so called sponsors except for the few supporters they listed on their sites. NOT one mention of any on public announcements or radio.
RED FLAG #8: Josh & Anna disclosed to me that they were very new to this world of organic and natural foods. (Nothing wrong with this whatsoever, everyone starts somewhere with a passion) However, they disclosed to me that just a few months before they met Liana over the internet, that Josh was suffering from depression and Anna was sick. They found this as a way to be 'Out of a rut'. Josh also went on to say with his arrogant ways: "Lynnette, this is going to make all of us SO MUCH MONEY, this is going to be huge, we are going to be rich", "Wow, Lynnette, we already feel that we are Brad & Angelina". They have made these exact statements to others as well. Yet they were NOT funded at all, they had NO money. So they lied to people I sent their way which reflected on me.
RED FLAG #9: When they approached one sponsor I sent their way, they were extremely arrogant and desperate. They first told the sponsor (unbeknownst to me, the potential sponsor disclosed this to me later) they wanted $10,000.00 for the vendor fee. The sponsors saw this as something worth value, but needed
to think and ask their accountant. While they were pondering, (I supposed they pondered too long) Josh and Anna called them back to offer them an "Exclusive" deal, "Off the record"...they said you can have the vendor space for just $5,000.00. Again, they had to think... (thinking too long only progressed the desperation) Josh and Anna called a third time, "Hey we are going to make you an un heard of deal...YOU can have the vendor space for a measly $2,000.00!" Wow, talk about TIME SHARE mentality.
RED FLAG #10: When I asked them for the tax id number for their 501(c)3, they simply stated, we have filed for it. I called and all they had was a TIN#. They never had an EIN.
RED FLAG #11: When Miranda Kerr suddenly dropped out, Josh and Anna told me: "Miranda's mom is so unreasonable to work with, she does not have her act together, so it is in our best interest to not work with her." Also when I sent them to a very well known and very reputable company in which I was very good friends with from childhood... Josh and Anna started spreading rumors that ALIVE was so big that said company was reaching out to them to gain their services. UMM, NO... this company is a very private company and well known, they called me with astonishment of the rumor.
FINAL FLAG: Everyone started dropping like flies, and when one person would leave, the answer was...."they are so evil, it's best we get them out now, cause that's what Jesus would do." I asked what some of the celebs had to do with health and wellness, the answer: "Lynnette, you yourself said it is fine to use celebrities to get your message out." Yes I did say that, BUT I also said ONLY certain TRUE celebs that could practice what WE preach. Again, the statement was: "We are bringing HOLLYWOOD to the health world."
WHY DO MY SUPPLEMENTS NEED TO BE ORGANIC?
A supplement is a supplement is a supplement right? No not at all. Sure the FDA and supplement making companies can label them as supplements, but how much are they really ‘supplementing’ your body? What kind of nutrients are really in these so called supplements? How are they made? Just like the sources of your food supply in which you need to know where it comes from and what was used to grow the foods, the same holds true to your vitamins/supplements. It is very important to know the source of the supplement and how they are made. If you are taking supplements with added fillers such as non organic ingredients and fillers and preservatives then it is just like eating that apple with pesticides sprayed on it. These additives deplete the nutritional value of the supplement. Why even take the supplements if they are not real sources
from organic herbs and plants? You should not, period! It is often a puzzle to people’s minds that when they become sick, ill or diseased they always say, “Oh my, how could this happen, I take all my recommended vitamins and supplements and I eat my veggies”. The answer is again, simple yet broad. You see, if you are consuming products that are artificial and have little nutritional value, then ask yourself, how in the world can this be healthy or beneficial for you? Of course the ideal means of taking care of our bodies would be simply through our food supply and only depend on the foods we consume to take care of our missing nutrients and vitamins. This is the ideal world and the ideal world of our ancestors. However, even with the most clean and toxic free eaters, myself included, we still get that 4 – 8% over spray of the pesticides, chem trails and infected soils to run over into our plates. This causes us not to be able to porperly 'absorb' our vital nutrients. Therefore, in this day and time even our 100% organic food supply has been tainted by the air pollution, the water pollution and the toxic soils and we must supplement our bodies with the needed vitamins and enzymes we were meant to have to maintain optimum health. The truth of the matter is that most OTC supplements and even most of those found in your organic health food stores are NOT organic and have unnecessary fillers and binders for the gel caps, plus they have very little of the actual vitamin that is being advertised in the pill. Also if you are taking that supplement that has additives and preservatives, then you might as well be just taking a tic tac that touts vitamin c. (says my friend Shan Stratton of Core Health Products )
I hope you are following me here. You see it is very necessary that we FUEL our bodies the proper nutrition and as clean of nutrients as we possibly can. Although some diseases and ailments may sneak into our own lives, there is always a way to reverse those ailments. We cannot possibly think that if we continue consuming those fake capsules and fake supplements we will continue to have the most vibrant health. It just does not work that way, for instance if you fill your gas tank with gas and you put the proper oil in the system, then your car is always going to run smoothly and have a very long life if you nurture it. However, if you start adding a little water with that gas, and get an oil mixed with water, salt or what ever, sure your car will still run for a while, but then after a while of continually absorbing all those foreign fillers, the car begins to wear down and eventually shut down. This is how our bodies work, our liver and kidneys cannot continue on a long road of fake nutrients and vitamins. Know your sources of any vitamin, supplement or even holistic pain reliever. As always, the better you take care of your body, the better your body takes care of you!
Lynnette Pate, your Organic Guru
Well to begin with, why NOT? I get the questions often
asked of me, “Why is it so important to eat organic foods? Isn’t organic
just another yuppy , preppy kind of life style? Isn’t that what hippies
and pot smokers eat? Besides, it cost so much more, why should I spend the
money on the same kind of food I already eat with the organic name on
All these questions have been asked. My answer is simple yet broad. To begin with, yes there is a lot of misconception of the word ‘organic’. People seem to think it is just some kind of fad and hip thing
that is going to “pass”. They seem to think that organic is for those who are waaay out there. But that’s where I do come in the picture, to shed light on these ways of thinking and put the truths on the matter and show people really what the organic world is all about. So let me start by saying, organic is NOT going to ‘just pass’. Organic is indeed a word that is misused sometimes. The fact of the matter is that it is not only for yuppies, preppies and or hippies. Organic is important to us all and the well being of our soil and planet. Just because people who do smoke pot or who are true hippies does not make it wrong or crazy. We need to look at the reasoning behind the organic world. It is not a ‘movement’. Organic has been around since the beginning of time, but our ancestors, grandparents called it FOOD. Organic eating & lifestyles are very important due to the fact they are pesticide, toxin and chemical free. Why do we need chemicals in our food supply? Why would you eat or drink some round up, agent orange, bug killer or miracle grow? Of course you wouldn’t…but in fact you DO eat this every time you eat that food that is not clean. Now of course consuming this food is not going to kill you immediately, however it is slowly killing you and the world you live in. We were not made to absorb and digest these deadly chemicals. Just think about it. You
say, but Lynnette, this is what our liver and kidneys are for…to eliminate those harmful toxins. Excuse me, but wrongo you are, our liver and kidneys are supposed to eliminate any un wanted bacteria, fungus or fillers, but not to outright rid your body of chemical pollution day after day. You say it is so expensive? Well I ask you, what is more important, your health or crap food? You are going to pay someone either by doctors or health insurance, why not pay YOUR SELF and invest in good real foods? If you look at all the sick and diseased people, you will see the foods they really do consume. Besides, have you seen the cost of cancer, insulin or heart disease lately? So think about it, you are what you eat, what do you want to be? Chemicals or a person? Never mind the fact that when you eat REAL nutrients, you actually fill your Brain instead of just filling your stomach with empty calories, therefore you actually eat more times per day , but you eat much less hence having a lower food bill as it takes less to live and be healthy on.
An organic life style is simply the act of knowing the facts. The facts are that chemical consumption wreaks havoc on your body and on the planet. So what do YOU CHOOSE? Besides the fact that non organic foods can be genetically modified, which means the food / seed has been genetically altered to create a NON natural food. We will discuss more of the GMO infestation in later articles.
