Why Change The Way You Eat?

Why would anyone want to change the way they eat? If someone is feeling reasonably well, what is the impetus then? Knowledge. The truth is we are what we eat and as human beings our bodies were designed to process natural foods. ‘Natural’ being foods of the earth such as fruits, vegetables, water, air, some meat and a few whole grains.

When we eat processed, packaged foods, our bodies and minds do a double take. It has to figure out how to process that box of mac and cheese with the orange-coloured ‘noodles’. Likely it has no idea how to do that so it does the best it can. The work-around will cause an impairment in basic function because it is exactly that, a work-around and not the recognition of natural foods in the body.

A case in point example – smoking and how the body must deal with the aftermath; the workaround in that instance might be cancer. So with the knowledge that food is the key to opening the healthy pathways in our bodies and minds let us all make a heartfelt pledge to eat better right now especially chemical free food


Best practice employed – Organic produce Buffer Strips

Organic standards state that organic corn has to be separated from GMO produce by a distance of at least 1800m (6000ft)  (yup, that’s a little over a mile!). However, mitigating factors are considered: planting dates, pollination dates, wind direction, landscape features, and other factors can all influence the risk of contamination. The level of risk the grower is prepared to accept is also a factor — if contamination is suspected.

The certifier may require that the grower does PCR strip tests on the crop moving across the field until it consistently tests clean – anything on the outside of the field would have to be sold conventionally. At the present time, there is zero tolerance for GMO contamination in organic crops.

Organic farmers who are considering growing produce can look at their field and crop rotation plans, as well as those of their neighbours to ensure the maximum separation distance possible (asking neighbors to plant their non-GMO refugia in locations that reduce the risk of contamination is another good idea).Make sure you know all the facts as they pertain to your situation before deciding whether something is “impossible” or not!.
