PESTICIDES

DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE EATING?

AN ANALYSIS OF U.S. GOVERNMENT DATA ON PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FOODS


Already after World War II, started the first large scale use of  Pesticides. (Most popular was insecticide called DDT. After it has been discovered that DDT is carcinogen, it has been forbidden in all developed countries.)  Pesticide came into widespread use. Bigger crops resulted from artificial fertilizers and from not having to share the land and yield with weeds and insects.

But the advantage of pesticides was short lived.  Reports indicates that before we started using pesticides, an average of 6% of crops were lost to pests.  Today, the losses are up to 12%, in spite to pesticides.  Pests have become resistant, and their natural predators have been killed off.

Today , farmers are more and more dependant on less and less effective pesticides, and pesticides are mandatory, unless, farmer decide to discontinue pesticides and help natural systems of pest control to reestablish themselves. Food produced in this way is called Organically grown. Other names are Biological, Biodynamical and Ecological.

Of all criteria's,  Biodynamical agriculture have the highest quality.  Biodynamical products are often produced without tractors or other motor powered machines.  Biodynamical farmers use horses instead of tractors.   

What are the health issues?

All degenerative diseases are linked to two main causes: mineral deficiency and intoxication.

Non-organically produced food is responsible for both problems.

 

Let us compare  non-organically grown/cultivated products and  organically grown/cultivated products:

Non-organically production is polluting earth, water and food.

 

 

Non-organically grown/cultivated

 

Organically

 

Cow milk and cow milk products

Contains:

Pesticide (contain also heavy metals):

up to 2 to 4 times more than food that cow eat.

Food that cow eat could contain up to 2 times more pesticides than food for humans.

Statistically linked to degenerative diseases (cancer).

Antibiotics:

up to half of the percentage of antibiotics in cow food.  

Antibiotics are added to keep cows disease free and to promote faster growth.

Linked to degenerative diseases (candida infections) and development of antibiotic resistant bacteria (E.Coli,...).

Hormones: 

up to half of the percentage of hormones in cow food.

Hormones are added to keep cows disease free and to promote faster growth.

Linked to degenerative diseases. (Higher incidence of many different types of cancer.)

Trace Minerals:

Up to 50 % less then organically cultivated.

Essential fatty acids:

Up to 30 % less then organically cultivated.

 

Cow milk and cow milk products

Pesticide: 0%

 

 

 

Antibiotics: 0%

 

 

 

Hormones: 0%

 

 

Trace Minerals: 50% more

 

 

 

 

Essential fatty acids: 30% more

 

Non-organically grown/cultivated

 

Organically

 

Cow meat and meat products

Contains:

Pesticide (contain also heavy metals):

up to 10 times more than food that cow eat.

Food that cow eat could contain up to 2 times more pesticides than food for humans.

Statistically linked to degenerative diseases (cancer).

Antibiotics:

The same percentage as in cow food.  

Hormones: 

The same percentage as in cow food.

Minerals:

Up to two times less then organically cultivated.

 

Cow meat and meat products

Contains:

 

Pesticide: 0%

 

 

Antibiotics: 0%

 

Hormones: 0%

 

Minerals: two times more

 

 

Non-organically grown/cultivated

 

Organically

Vegetables, grains, seeds and legumes

 

Pesticide (contain also heavy metals):

variable amount; higher percentage of heavy metals.  

Statistically linked to degenerative diseases (cancer).

Antibiotics:

Antibiotics are added to keep vegetable longer fresh.

Linked to degenerative diseases (candida infections) and development of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Minerals:

Up to two times less then organically cultivated.

Directly linked to degenerative diseases.

Trace minerals (selenium, zinc, chromium,vanadium):

Up to 30 times less then organically cultivated.

Directly linked to degenerative diseases.

 

Vegetables, grains and seeds

Pesticide: 0%

 

 

Antibiotics: 0%

 

 

More minerals and trace minerals.

non-organically grown/cultivated organically

About 30% of the chickens, 60% of the cattle and 80% of veal calves and pigs are routinely given drugs in their
feed.

Bacitracin can cause an allergic cross-reaction in humans that may prevent the effective use of other antibiotics
for the treatment of infection, especially neomycin and streptomycin. Physicians Desk Ref.

In 1968, the FDA proposed revokation of the residue tolerance of this drug in fish and poultry, but it is used today
with a tolerance of 7ppm for uncooked poultry and 5ppm for raw marine products.

Penicillin is given to 6,500,000 cattle or cows at any one time to treat the mastitis which appears as a result of the
use of other substances. It is added to the feed or drinking water of salmon,catfish, lobsters, chicken, pigs and turkeys.
Food Additives Status List, Jan 1, 1988. FDA. Humans who have developed allergic reactions to pencillin become
sensitized to the antibiotics in animal food. People who are in this category should avoid dairy products entirely.

In December 1994, it was announced in Science News, Vol 146, that scientists were using Tetracycline to turn
genes “on and off”. The technique was developed in 1992 by Hermann Bujard of the University of Heidelberg in
Germany. Tetracycline binds to DNA structures. The implications are enormous, considering the use of these
compounds in both animal and human allopathic medicine.

The government was advised to stop the use of nitrofurans in 1979, but ignored the warnings. Human reactions to
these can involve allergic reaction, respiratory effects and resistance to medical application of nitrofurans to treat
urinary tract infections.
