Pesticides and Chemicals - Food By Design (GMO)

Danger - Contaminated Water

High salt consumption can cause hypertension, migraine headache, abnormal fluid retention, potassium loss, interfere with proper utilization of protein, and increase chances of heart disease and many other ailments. The average American consumes more than the weight of a bowling ball made of salt each year (more than 15 pounds). If you think you don't eat salt because you never eat pretzels or chips, think again before dinner.

Processed Foods

“When money speaks, the truth keeps silent.”
- A Russian Proverb

All the foods we need for a healthy life already exist in nature. The food industries create hype because they want us to believe these processed, enriched, enhanced, and designed foods have been engineered for our well being. These inferior, synthetic, mass produced foods may taste good, but have little or no nutritional value. The latest rip off, is the low fat or no fat foods. They are very popular because our normal diet has created so many obese people, although, the labels do not tell the whole truth.

Additionally, the Aveda line has specific natural oils to mix in with their hydrating lotion (moisturizer), called infusions. They are like using a good medicine as they have many healing and protecting benefits. A base makeup, if organic, can be used for protection also. You ask protection from what? Protection from all the pollutants our lives contain, along with protection from sun. I do recommend wearing a quality base makeup, lightly and evenly applied to the face and neck.

These substances are known to aggravate asthma, allergies, digestive and liver conditions. They can kill you and symptoms can range from mild breathing difficulties to anaphylactic shock. Symptoms include severe headaches, faintness, abdominal pains, nasal stuffiness, facial flushing and diarrhea. In addition, they destroy vitamin B among others.

DDT is still being used, even though it has been banned in the United States, because of the way it is passed from one organism to another. No living creature on this Earth is safe from its effects.

PCB's (Polychlorinated biphenyls) are pesticides widely used in industry because of their resistance to heat. They are more dangerous than DDT because they are almost indestructible. These chemicals are known to cause miscarriages and stillbirths.

DES (Diethylstilbestrol) is a female (estrogen) hormone that was banned in 1973 but is still permitted in the form of pellets implanted in the ears of livestock and sheep.

It is known to cause vaginal and breast cancer in women as well as impotence in men.ARSENIC is the main ingredient used to remove mites, ticks, and other parasites from livestock and is also used in chicken feed. It is a highly concentrated poison, deadly to humans and all other life forms.

Chemicals used to take putrefaction (rotting) appearance from meat.

Butchers call this their miracle drug. SODIUM NITRATE/ SODIUM NITRITE are preservatives used to slow down putrefaction in cured meat and meat products such as: hot dogs, bacon, ham, luncheon meats, sausage, and poultry. BHA (Butylated hydroxyanisole) / BHT (Butylated hydroxtoluene) are preservatives found in many prepared foods. They haven been proven to create allergic reactions, affect liver and kidney functions, elevate cholesterol levels, cause sterility and infertility, cause behavioral problems in children, weakened immune systems, and increase susceptibility to carcinogens in humans.
