Eat Your Vegetables!!

MORE Vegetables, PLEASE!

Uriia Underhill, B.Sc.

Funny thing is this would seem to be something that would put you in the right direction of health.  Now I’m beginning to wonder, what benefits we are actually receiving if we are unable to buy straight organic or grow our own?

I support vegetables and fruit! I know that in a better time these foods would be sole provider of many essential vitamins and nutrients needed to improve all aspects of health and wellness.

The problem is that now days, we could actually be doing more harm than good because of the amounts of pesticides present in our food supply. 

I recently watched an episode of Dr. Oz that stated a conventional grown cucumber can have upward to 32 different pesticides used during its growth, which in turn results in that many being present inside the vegetable. Yeah, Yeah I know you can “just wash the outside.” Or at least that is what “they” tell you. Now we all know a plant is grown from a root, which sucks from the ground and then distributes those toxins through out the product. Hmm seems to me no amount of washing is able to clean out the inside of a plant. Thus this horrible situation continues. 

It is sad to me that now the “true medicine” for our bodies is tainted. Many people are unable to afford Organic produce and in that case unable to escape possible poisoning. I realize that there are two options to reduce this problem, grow your own or take back our produce. We can make a difference!! 

It’s our health, let’s do something about it!!
