Untangling the Mess

How do we begin to untangle the mess, begin to work ourselves out of our chemical dependency and into a truly organic, regenerative, and, most important, healthy world for all?

We need to end the confusion once and for all and unite over what really matters.

Let this be your guide to global organic conversion, no spin included – just the facts.

Chemicals aren’t necessary to grow food.

Synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, and GMOs are substitutes for thinking, understanding, and effort.

They’re necessary only to generate large profits for businesses and to dispose of our toxic industrial wastes.

Virtually every food in the world has been successfully grown and made organically in modern, productive, and regenerative ways – from fine wines to white flour, apples, cherries, the most delicious beef, olive oil, and even lard.

Chemicals make food, soil, water, and air dirty, toxic, and poisoned.

The manufacturing, transportation, and use of chemicals for agriculture are energy-intensive and poisonous to all things coming in contact with them.

Most chemicals don’t biodegrade within a few months.

Like nuclear waste, some toxins last forever, and many of the impacts are known to be horrible.

Already, dead zones in the ocean are starting to spread, wells are contaminated, and we suffer increasingly from infections and diseases like asthma, diabetes, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Parkinson’s, and cancers associated with chemicals.

Agricultural chemicals destroy the soil’s natural ability to store and process carbon, thereby leading to our gradual suffocation and a global climate crisis.

Mycorrhizal fungi in the soil are our greatest allies in the fight for our survival on this planet.

They’re the hidden heroes beneath us.

Chemicals kill them.

Chemicals kill us.

Smaller doses of chemicals can be just as dangerous as large doses.

Most of the government regulations on chemicals are based on estimated safe amounts of exposure.

Researchers are finding, however, small doses, and cumulative small doses, can be just as toxic as large doses.

There really are no safe limits.

Organic foods are healthier.

1.  Growing foods organically prevents thousands of highly toxic chemicals from entering our environment and poisoning our soils, our wells, our wildlife, our children, and ourselves.

2.  Growing foods organically restores the earth’s ability to process and store carbon and significantly reduces the atmospheric problems causing the climate crisis.  Even more important, restoring the earth’s ability to store carbon will help us all keep breathing.

3.  Studies have shown some organic foods are higher in antioxidants and powerful cancer-fighting nutrients like conjugated linoleic acid.  And, when you eat them, you’re ingesting much cleaner, purer food.

4.  In one study, researchers analyzed urine samples of children when they ate a chemical-food diet and then again after eating an organic diet.  The researchers documented a significant decrease in agricultural chemicals detected in their urine on the same day they switched to an organic diet – and a return to higher levels when they went back to a chemical diet.
