Good Evening Neighbor:
Since being exposed to an organophosphate at a very intense rate in the summer of 2006, I have worked hard to decrease my body burden in order that I might spare myself from cancer or a neurological disease in the future. Living as we have since the 1930s with the high introduction of chemicals in our environment, each one of us carries within our cells toxins that our body has to fight daily to balance or destroy. We are so chemically burdened that we now pass these chemicals on to our unborn children. So it is up to each one of us to decide how we want to treat our bodies and if we want to increase our longevity and quality of life. I am giving you a couple of links to help you make an educated decision.
I have personally chosen to eat organically (meaning foods produced without pesticides or other chemicals). This way my body burden is increased as little as possible. The first thing that appears to keep people from eating organically is that it is a little more expensive to purchase. I decided I could go without those new earrings and put my health first. Once I woke up to how I had lived in the past (never realizing that I was increasing my children's body burden by the way we shopped and cooked), I literally went to my children and apologized for not having known and would do all I could to make sure it did not happen in the future.
There are so many benefits to living this way that I would never go back. There is immediate weight loss just from the reduction of chemical inflammation, which goes without saying reduces your risk of many inflammatory diseases. Also, your energy level is raised and you sleep better at night. Your body absolutely does not have to work as hard - it is plain and simple.
I hope you will give this some serious thought. The only way to care for those you love and your community is to care for yourself first!! Those aspects alone make it a priority for me.
