4 Reasons You Should Be Concerned About Pesticides

People all over the world join in!

Most of us now recognise that it's time to eat more and more organic fruit and vegetable produce but pesticide and insecticide levels are not low enough to protect your health unless you go organic!

Especially for anyone with plant-based food consciousness and those who already eat 5-9 servings for fruits and vegetables daily, it’s important to be aware and informed about what’s affecting the fresh produce you eat. Remember, you are what you eat, from your head to your feet!

Pesticides are toxic by design. They are created expressly to kill living organisms -- insects, plants and fungi that are considered “pests.” Many pesticides pose health dangers to people. These risks have been confirmed by independent research scientists and physicians across the world.
As acknowledged by U.S. and international government agencies, different pesticides have been linked to a variety of health problems.

The 4 reasons to be concerned about pesticides levels in our foods are:

How To Discover Your Purpose

What On Earth Am I Here For?

I was in a class the other day and the topic was PURPOSE. One of my spiritual big brothers was teaching the class and he wasn't talking about your job, your daily responsibilities, or even long-term goals. He asked if we had ever asked the question "Why am I here?" — the very reason you exist.

Experts Investigate the Benefits of Using Turmeric for Liver Detox

Orlando, FL - (SBWIRE)-08/18/2015

Experts investigate the benefits of using turmeric for liver detox. A detoxification process is believed to be one of the best ways to help the liver and free it from toxins that the human body is exposed to every day. These toxins include additives, pesticides, heavy metals and a wide range of chemicals present in food and the environment. The liver works by expelling the toxins from the bloodstream. However, when there is an overload of these harmful substances, that is the time when the liver needs some help.

How Stress Undermines Your Diet

Scientists scan the brain to see how stress undermines your diet
It's hard for stressed people to choose healthful foods over tasty ones, a new study says.

By SASHA HARRIS-LOVETT  (Los Angeles Times)

If you're trying to lose weight, kick off your diet by relaxing. Stress tinkers with your brain chemistry in ways that make it hard to make healthful food choices and maintain self-control, a new study finds.
Study volunteers who endured a somewhat stressful experience were 24% more likely to choose unhealthful snacks afterward compared with volunteers who hadn't experienced stress. And researchers think they know why: Brain scans showed that the stressed people had altered neurological connectivity between regions of the brain that process tastiness, make value judgments and plan for long-term goals.

Are You Chronically Dehydrated

By Phillip Day

"Chronic pains of the body which cannot easily be explained as injury or infection, should first and foremost be interpreted as signals of chronic water shortage in the area where the pain is registered. These pain signals should first be considered and excluded as primary indicators for dehydration of the body before any other complicated procedures are forced on the patient." - Dr F Batmanghelidj
The human body is a bio-electrical water machine that requires a quart a day for every 50 lbs of body weight. The blood alone is made up of a large percentage of watery serum. The lymph fluids which transport waste and nutrients, comprising four times the volume of blood in the body, are made from the water we consume. Every cell that makes us who we are literally owes its life to an adequate supply of fresh, clean water.
