Lowering Health Care Costs

How would the consumer experience change?

Supermarkets would still exist.

But they might be more like super-farmers’ markets, offering a combination of local and regional foods.

The ridiculous segregation of organics persisting in our supermarkets would go away.

People could still get all their favorite products, but they’d all be certified organic – even Doritos and Wonder bread.

Food prices might rise, but with heavy taxation and penalties on chemical companies, chemical foods would be much more expensive than organic.

And of course, all chemical foods would have to have warning labels listing all the dangers of eating them, including death.

Health care costs, conversely, would decrease significantly.

Slowly but surely, as we transition to organic, autism rates would decline, cancer rates would decline, diabetes rates would decline, obesity would decline (we’d all lose weight, thanks to removing all those hormone-disrupting, endocrine-disrupting chemicals from our lives!); allergy, asthma, and depression rates would go down.

Infertility, miscarriages, genital deformities, and sexual dysfunction would decrease and babies would be born healthier.

People would start to feel better and be healthier.

Ask any dairy farmer how things change after they go organic and they’ll tell you their cows are healthier and happier.

Kids especially, with all the outdoor activity and farm work, would become stronger and more vital.

We’d see fewer behavioral problems and conditions like ADHD.

There would be more frogs!

More bees!

More fireflies!

More bats!

(And therefore fewer mosquitoes!)

Floods and droughts would be much less extreme and much less devastating.

While a lot would change, many things would feel the same.

We’d still have TVs, computers, and restaurants (though the food would taste a whole lot better).

Our kids would still want to go shopping, only now all the cotton clothing they’re begging for would be organic, which feels a lot softer against your skin.

There would still be fashion and fads (some things will never change!).

Doesn’t that seem like a vision worth championing?

I know it’s possible.

We all need to help and the first place to start is in our own lives and yards.

We need to plant more gardens.

The beautiful thing about organic, nature and mycorrhizal fungi is they make it not really matter what you plant.

Plant tomatoes or zinnias, herbs or a forest.

Stake a claim, mark your ground, and take a stand.

Make your commitment to staying on this planet and on this earth.

Make it with your own personal sense of style and freedom of taste.

Plant foods you love to eat, and use the organic garden to help you learn about nature, not fight against it.

You’ll find something unexpected will grow in your garden – trust.

Trust in yourself.

Trust in nature.

Trust in our future, and finally, trust in our ability to make our future good.
