Today it’s not about cloth diapers. I have something else I want to share. My mom has had breast cancer twice. I recently had a scare with two cysts in my breast. Among myself and my immediate family we suffer from anxiety, OCD, fatigue, depression, chronic pain, trouble sleeping, and more. I just watched a something that hit me like a lightning bolt. Something that I felt compelled to share with you. It’s about why so many of us have so many health issues. And how might get rid of them.
Note: I’ve had some comments saying that the food we are eating doesn’t cause cancer. Am I naive enough to think that all our illnesses are caused by GMOs and pesticides on food. No. But am I motivated enough to learn more and do better. Yes. And I encourage you to do the same.
The film I watched is called Secret Ingredients. It’s about the hidden, not good stuff, in our food. We all know that our diets aren’t what they used to be. We eat out more. We buy more and more processed foods.
But the FOOD itself isn’t even the same anymore.
We are often eating genetically modified foods (GMOs). I discovered my daughter’s favorite yogurt is genetically modified. WHY? Why do we have to genetically modify children’s yogurt???
And it’s not just GMOs. Our foods are now covered in pesticides and herbicides like Round Up. Have you been following the Round Up stories in the news? It’s not good.
These terrible things are sprayed on GMO corn and soy – but also on other products like wheat and rice and many other crops. And then all those things are used to make so many of the OTHER foods we eat.
We are not just eating the food. We are eating those sprays as well.
Secret Ingredients was about an hour long. They shared stories of families affected with all the issues that we all suffer from. Some of them are mentioned above. But there are more. And they also talk about how GMO’s and things like Round Up are causing the issues.
But it’s not just about what the cause is. They shared a solution.
You need to watch Secret Ingredients. We need to make changes. All of us. For our own sake. And for our children. For our children’s children. Please.
