Taming Our Toxic Load: Organic is Not Enough
More than a decade ago Liza Oates and I published the results of our research that showed eating a 80% organic diet for one week led to a 90% reduction in organophosphate pesticide levels. A new study has now found a 70% reduction in glyphosate levels after a week-long organic diet. Yet, while Bayer (which now owns Monsanto) has agreed to pay an out-of-court settlement of over $10 billion, they will be able to continue to sell Roundup without restraint or any safety warnings.
While people who eat organic food can reduce their pesticide exposures, our exposures to toxicity is expanding in multiple directions as an inevitable consequence of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The global increase in entropy is evident in our increasing exposure to Twenty Toxic Products produced by 5 killer industries that dominate virtually every aspect of our lives.
We are awash in a toxic soup that effects every living thing on earth and most people now drink water deliberately spiked with poisons such as chlorine and fluoride, breathe air filled with toxic particulates, and consume food containing multiple pesticides and GMOs. All living things are also increasingly exposed to microplastics, nanoparticles along with higher and higher frequencies and intensities of electromagnetic radiation.
For generations we have been chlorinated, fluoridated, vaccinated, irradiated, contaminated, manipulated, indoctrinated, medicated, subjugated by laws, intoxicated by industry, emasculated by xenoestrogens and indebted to corporations that want us to be scared, sick, helpless, hopeless, jobless and dead.
Yet, just as entropy increases in closed systems and makes pollution inevitable, we can minimise our toxic exposures and avoid succumbing to the Ten Toxic Truths by disengaging from closed hierarchical, centralised power structures and adopting open decentralised peer-to-peer networks that foster evolution. This will require more than changing our consumption habits, it will mean reclaiming sovereignty over our lives and the living biome that surrounds us.
This means shifting from an anti-life agenda that seeks to destroy life with chlorine, disinfectants, pesticides and antibiotics to an agenda that respects evolutionary intelligence and builds resilience by culturing a healthy biome and focuses on the quality of water we bathe in, the food we eat, the air we breathe, our exposure to electromagnetic fields, and the products we buy and put into our bodies. In an age of cyberwars, ‘fact-checking’ and genetic modification of our foods and proposed modification of our human genome through new vaccine technologies, we must also be wary of the information we are exposed to, who has access to the information we generate, and the integrity of the genetic information in our food and our bodies.
Ultimately living well requires us following the Recipe for Wellness and embarking on a personal transformation where we all become superheros and save our world by contributing to a wellness epidemic that causes a global awakening and restructuring of human civilisation. Together we can mitigate climate change, reduces the burden of chronic disease and builds a healthy global community that can bathe the world and have the wellness industry as the dominant industry on earth.
Only then will we truly realise worldwide wellness.
