Here’s a great video worth watching and sharing.
In this video Robyn O’Brien presents “The New Food Economy” on TED. Here she talks about what has been done to our food and what’s is continuing to happen. One theory for the recent boom in food allergies reported by people is the increased usage of chemicals, pesticides and GMOs. So the question now is, are we really allergic to food or could it be actually we are reacting to the unnatural chemicals and pesticides used to grow most food. The main problem is GMOs and the chemicals needed to grow and maintain them. The other reason we use so many chemicals on even organic food is because we are trying to prevent pests from diving into our profit margins. Old fashion techniques have been forgotten or covered up. There are many organic ways to control pests and increase product yield. Our obsession with chemicals has gone a bit too far and we need to come back to how food used to be… 100% ORGANIC, through and through. No chemicals, just sun, air, soil and water. If some pests eat your crops then that’s just bad luck or you need to find a way to naturally control the situation. We don’t get a planet B.
