Why do we eat food? Because it's that time of day again? Or because food is necessary for life?
The quality of our food strongly impacts our well-being and the well-being of our world, either negatively or positively. So much illness or health - at all levels - starts with what we choose to eat.
Individually and collectively,
we can either chase after the many predictable health and
environmental problems that come from our use of billions of
pounds of toxic pesticides -
or we can create good health and well-being from the start.
Many farmers, consumers, and
policy makers are seeing the wisdom of the latter path.
By facing the true harm of pesticides and choosing alive organic foods,
we can all help create a healthier, less-toxic world for everyone.
Why would we choose anything else?
To make it easy for you to find out more and take constructive action, we've gathered together our favorite information, links, and resources!
Preventing the Harm of Toxic PesticidesKnowledge is power. This section offers information on the specific ways that we're all being involuntarily exposed to toxic pesticides throughout our lives, and how we can help protect ourselves and others from this harm.
Supporting Organic Food & AgricultureHow can you support the dream of non-toxic food and agriculture? This section explores what organic is, how it provides us all with a superior option (for ourselves and our world), and ways that you can find and nurture organics, and thus be part of the solution.
