Don't Let Your Food Poison You

Most Americans are not aware that regulatory agencies do not adequately test substances used on food crops. In addition, government protection agencies rarely test the effects of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides when they are used in combination. Incredibly, some chemicals have no toxicity when used alone but are very toxic when combined with others.
 
Here are some steps you can take to reduce your risk of being poisoned from your food:
 
• Grow your own vegetables and fruits.They can be grown in your yard or in hydroponic gardens indoors. Using hydroponics would allow you to grow produce in the winter. Likewise, natural insect control is vital, using insects such as ladybugs or praying mantis. You can also use other biological control systems.
 
• Buy locally grown foods. Talk to local farmers and ask about pesticide and herbicide use. Organic farms are popping up all over the place, and have been growing at a rate of 15 percent a year with no end in sight.
 
• Wash your vegetables and fruits. To wash your vegetables properly, fill a two-gallon pot with purified water (filtered) and add two caps of vegetable wash, such as Fit Fruit & Vegetable Wash. When washing leafy vegetables like cabbage or lettuce, separate the leaves and wash each leaf separately. Hard fruits and vegetables, such as bell peppers and cucumbers, need to be washed and scrubbed with a vegetable brush. Fruits, such as apples and pears, should be peeled.
 
• Avoid injected meats and poultry. You may have noticed that most whole birds and many hams have a carefully worded label that says that they were injected with gluten, natural flavors, or hydrolyzed protein extracts. In essence, this is a glutamate mixture much like MSG. And like MSG, it is toxic to your body, especially the brain.
 
• Wash your poultry well. It is also important to wash whole birds before you cook them. Many are covered in chemicals and bacteria contamination. Just hold the bird under the water and scrub the skin with a vegetable brush (don’t use the same one you scrub vegetables with). After you are finished, hold the brush under the hot water for a minute. All foods should be thoroughly washed before cooking.
 
• Cook all meats completely through, even steaks. Most animals, especially cattle and chickens, are infected with carcinogenic viruses and there is compelling evidence that humans can develop cancer from these viruses. Several studies have shown that slaughterhouse workers and those who butcher meat have significantly higher rates of lymphomas and leukemias than the general population. These are the same cancers found in cattle and chickens.
