A good percentage of Americans consume harmful chemicals at the dinner table each and every night from store-bought vegetables they eat. Government studies indicate that pesticides can contribute to a myriad of life-threatening illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis, and birth defects. They can also contribute to higher stress levels, insomnia, muscle weakness, and depression. Two of the most popular classes of insecticides used in the U.S. are organophosphates and carbamates. They are designed as neurotoxins, poisoning the nervous systems of unwanted insects. However, they can harm human nervous systems as well. They are found in lawn sprays, weed killer sprays, roach and ant sprays, and even head-lice shampoo. Children are more vulnerable to the effects of pesticide exposure because their internal organs are still developing and maturing. Pregnant women who are exposed to certain pesticides can spread that contamination on to their unborn children as well causing birth defects and later health problems. When we use pesticides or non-organic fertilizers in our gardens and on our flowers, those chemicals produce a residue that is left behind… The good news is that there are ways to get away from those toxins and start living a healthier lifestyle through organic foods. Organic foods are not only better for the body, but they taste better and provide more nutrients to nourish us. However, part of the problem with organic foods is that they can be very expensive to buy in the store…but that won't be a problem if you grow them yourself. Perhaps you've never taken up gardening, but have always wanted to try? That's perfectly alright! It's a good time to start!
