Monday “Did you know…” Rinse all you want.

Can your veggies look like this? If they haven’t been genetically modified, then yes. But most folks don’t know that genetically modified veggies have the pesticides built into the seed…yes, the seed! That means the old “rinse with warm water to remove pesticide” advice is long gone. Make healthy choices, stay informed, eat clean!
Has this been tested?
The issues.

    From the mouths of babes! I posted this vid on the DJ blog previously and looked up a bit about this specific chemical. From Cornell Univ Pesticide Mgmt Program:
    “Chlorpropham is moderately toxic by ingestion. It may cause irritation of the eyes or skin. Symptoms of poisoning in laboratory animals have included listlessness, incoordination, nose bleeds, protruding eyes, bloody tears, difficulty in breathing, prostration, inability to urinate, high fevers, and death. Autopsies of animals have shown inflammation of the stomach and intestinal lining, congestion of the brain, lungs and other organs, and degenerative changes in the kidneys and liver.”

    *This represents just one frozen crystal on the tip of the biotech agriculture iceberg.

    Before western europeans began their assault on to the shores of North America, humans were not considered to be at the top of the food chain. Humans and all life forms were considered equal and each gave and received as needed to preserve the balance of life required by the Earth Mother. The european idea that nature was, in its essence, under the control of man and that man was not just required, but entitled to use those resources as he saw fit to promote progress has led us down a dangerous path. And as with all paths walked in shadow there comes a time when a reckoning, a righteous judgement for all past offenses comes due. There are two roads in life, The Red Road and The Black Road. The Red Road is difficult, filled with dangers and obstacles that require good choices be made to navigate it successfully. The Black Road is wide and easy to travel on, but it is the bad way, the bad side, and the wrong choice. Truth is the marker along the roads of life. The Red Road has many markers, but if we choose The Black Road, there is only one…The Illusion of Truth! Truth is like the wind, you cannot see it, but you can see the effect it has! The thing is you can always change the road you are walking on, whether or not mankind does so before he destroys himself is the ultimate question of our time. We stand at the crossroads as individuals and as the whole of humanity, we as individuals can start simply with this…Reduce, Replace, Refine! Mitaukye O’yasin

    Wow, another scary example of how our food is killing us. Maybe ignorance really is bliss.

      A wise man once noted:
      “Again I am reminded of the American Cattle-Chute Mentality, show them one and they will gladly walk towards the gun! ‘So you like to eat healthy?’ ‘No, not really, I just prefer to be able to live my life on my terms and not on those predetermined by ingesting some fucked up shit delivered to the door so I can go into a sugar induced coma for the afternoon after consuming it.'” (JJU, 2012)

      That article seems to point away from chemicals towards chronic dehydration.

        They’ve been collecting data on this particular issue since 2000 (and maybe prior). Given what I have read & learned about Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxins (PBTs) over the last few years, with which these types of workers are inundated, I truly think there’s more to the chemical side of this story. Sounds like confounding variables. Or just simply hide the smoking gun. The global health impact of pesticide use is frightening…. and it represents only a sliver of the Doomsday Pie we’re nibbling on courtesy of Big Agra. (Is that the nummy pie that’s delivered by a weird dude in a clown suit?) Chemical Trespass | Pesticides in our Bodies and Corporate Accountability
