    To the mom stuck on organic veg ONLY, many of us cannot afford to live on the best clean diets we need, sadly. So we have to wing it and hope that some of these veg n fruit are strong enough to withstand toxic chemicals sprayed on them and still come out winners. Is there a study out there showing which veg n fruit can withstand the toxic assault sprayed on them.?

    Yes there are side effects from consuming conventional fruit n veg but even our air is compromised. The human body is resilient it amazes me that we still live to mid 70/ 80’s even though alot of people haven’t eaten the best diet. I do try my best to live healthy but l cant always afford organic. I also supplement with pure herbs and vitamins and l juice. One question to the mom who swears by organic, have your children had all of their vaccines.?

    Very smart about eating according to the seasons.

    After years of health issues primarily stemming from the liver, I only improved (lost excess weight, gained back my vitality, sleep better) when I finally accepted that certain foods MUST be left off the plate, no debate, no argument; Nature put food on this earth to be our medicine in as natural a form as possible not adulterated and full of chemicals and ravaged by GMO experimentation or its goodness cooked right out of it; Doctors disempower us by refusing to advise us to heal through nature’s foods, rather they advise us to manage our dis-ease through medications that make us worse from side affects; that we carry the ravages of viruses, bacteria, pathogens, heavy metals, radiation and DDT toxicity; toxic chemicals are in everything we use from cleaning products, petrochemicals, to building materials, beauty care products, the clothes we wear, the furniture we buy, medical procedures we undergo and even the air we breath and the water we drink. And all this is not only from our present exposure but passed down from years of previous exposure in our ancestor’s bloodlines.
    Sounds daunting and it is. But we have a choice. Accept the fact that we must eat to live and not live to eat. A diet full of fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and wild edibles have made all the differences for me. These foods have an amazing ability to cleanse disease from our body.
    I used to believe in “everything in moderation.” But it didn’t heal me because the moderation takes over. The pathogens inside us thrive on all the unproductive foods we eat and as long as we eat them, those disease causing pathogens thrive.The statistics speak for themselves. More than 95% of us are sick. Once the discipline of healthier eating is in place, change is possible. It’s up to each of us to choose their own path.
    Oh and about heirloom corn? All corn (as well as soy) is very susceptible to cross-pollination from hybrids and GMO’s that are grown on most farms. It is, however, possible to live without them.

    Zen Honeycutt .🐝
    Use honey not industrial sugar ,if not possible use concentration of sugarcane juice .
    Buy some sugar
    can clean it properly & extract juice then boil it on low flame, add aromatic spices if you like , reduce it to sticky liquid and pack it in an air tight jar . Now instead of sugar use this concentration.
    Note : consume it within 30 days

    The real problem is how our foods are being manipulated. no one should be adding things into our foods. Supplements, gmo’s antibiotics steroids hormones,, it all should be illegal. Our foods today be it cooked fresh or process is killing us, because its not the same as it were pre WWII. before intensive farming was created to supply food to the troops and other nations. Things went from being truly natural without all the pesticides to now we have dumb scientists figuring growing foods without soil is a good idea. when the soil is where the nutrients most of which comes from. And everyone is talking this organic organic… fact is 98% of foods labeled organic is anything but. Its long been used as a scheme to get people to buy the same products for more money. And the farmers themselves in many reports said so. We are killing ourselves for profits.
