Agent Orange Corn???  Lovely…

Agent Orange Corn??? Lovely…

Unless you are living under a rock, you have to wonder why many of our government agencies are ignoring the test results proving that biotech pesticides are harmful to all living things.  WHY???

And now, why are Vietnam Vets joining the Moms and food activists in the fight against genetically modified foods???  The answer is simple.  There is a new breed of GMO corn that resist heavy applications of an herbicide, called 2,4-D.  Our Vietnam Vets know, all too well, the many health problems caused by 2, 4-D because it is one of the two active ingredients in Agent Orange!!!  To add insult to injury:

 “The corn and 2,4-D are both being manufactured by Dow Agro Science, which has named its new corn “Enlist”, a name the veterans say is ‘a slap at all Vietnam veterans’.” *

I couldn’t agree more!!!  And yes, Monsanto also manufactures 2,4-D.

When will it end?  Can we, the little people, get them to look beyond $$$ to see what they are doing to us, our children, our pets…the cycle of life???

This is just one of the many reasons I am doing my best to grow as much of my own food from non-GMO seeds as possible.  All of you should consider doing the same for your health and your entire family’s wellbeing.

Dr. Terry Wahls suffered from MS…notice she is a doctor.  She had the best, latest and greatest there was to offer in medical treatment and the drugs they prescribe; however, her health continued to decline.

Though her presentation is 17 minutes it is well worth your time as she describes what simple methods changed her decline and brought her back to a healthy state.

I am on board and have been for some time…are you???

Antibiotics?  No thanks~

Antibiotics? No thanks~

We have been steering clear of antibiotics for years and this article from Wellness Times reinforces the reasons why…

In a nutshell, over-prescribing antibiotics is causing our bodies to become immune to them.  This could mean that if/when we REALLY need them, they might not work.  Bill Benda, MD, emergency room physician and Wellness Times Editorial Adivisor, says antibiotics should not be used to treat viral infections like the common cold or flu.  He goes on to say that even a horrible cough that is not caused by strep bacteria will not benefit from an antibiotic.  “Not only will the antibiotic be ineffective, it may be harmful,” he says.

My favorite part of the article…The Solution:

  1. Don’t pressure your doctor to prescribe antibiotics!
  2. IF you are prescribed an antibiotic, take it EXACTLY as prescribed!
  3. Buy organic meats and dairy to reduce your exposure to antibiotics via diet/food supply.
  4. Take probiotics consistently!!!  Probiotics are good bacteria that strength immunity.

I would add to their ‘solution’ to try Colloidal Silver and coconut oil at the first signs of an infection.  We have had an amazing success rate with these two ‘crazy good’ items for years now.
