Nerve Gas in Our Food Supply?!?
If someone sprayed a nerve gas agent that the Nazis developed during World War II on your food, would you eat it?
Any sane person would say no.
But unless you’re eating organic foods, you’re likely ingesting this toxic chemical on a daily basis.
The chemical is called chlorpyrifos, and even though it’s derived from Nazi chemical weapons, it is now used as an agricultural insecticide in the U.S.
It is sprayed on all of our most basic foods, including corn, wheat, apples, and citrus.
Environmental groups have been trying to get it pulled off the market for years, and just when it looked like it was about to happen, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently refused to issue a ban.
There are no shortage of studies showing the dangers of this chemical, and even the EPA has warned of its dangers.
That’s right, the EPA itself banned the residential use of chlorpyrifos back in 2000 because of the extreme danger it posed to children.
But it’s still used on farms everywhere, and Americans are eating chlorpyrifos by the ton. And the EPA has made sure that will continue.
The decision leaves me scratching my head—but also makes me wonder who’s scratching the EPA’s back.
Chlorpyrifos is one of the worst offenders of pesticide poisoning, and can cause convulsions, respiratory paralysis, and even death. You don’t have to work on one of these farms to be exposed to the stuff.
Residues remain on the food it is sprayed on, and people in the vicinity of these farms face drinking water contamination and toxic spray drift.
Think Erin Brockovich.
But it’s the brains of developing children that are especially at risk, with studies showing that exposure can cause permanent damage, including reduced IQ, loss of working memory, delayed motor development, lower birth weight, and the ever-increasing attention deficit disorders.
Despite these known risks, more than 40,000 farms (especially factory farms) dump over 6 million pounds of this deadly chemical on their crops every year. They’re placing THEIR profits over YOUR safety.
And this is just one example of the toxins sprayed on our food, our lawns, and even in our homes.
In Canada, some provinces have banned the household use of pesticides. I wish my home state of Arizona was so proactive. But you don’t need the government to regulate the use of these toxins—you can enforce your own personal ban for yourself and your family.
That’s what I do. I never have ANY pest control of ANY kind anywhere near me at ANY time. Nothing is sprayed in the house or even in our yard.
Another way to reduce exposure is to eat organic foods. My family and I jumped on the organic bandwagon years ago, and we haven’t looked back.
To a brighter day,
