Why? Do you not ever wonder? Plus recipes for mouthwash and flu prevention
Bear with me today, I am just saying things I have observed, studied and learned, all of which you can verify on line. About six years ago, driving to town down the beautiful mountains, I watched them working in the tomato and corn fields, and it struck me that something was odd. They brought in big sprayer trucks almost weekly and used chemicals to kill bugs and weeds, and then they started picking green tomatoes. Why? Are not vine ripened the ones that taste good? Well, it turns out you can't ship ripe ones across the country, they would be rotten when they arrived. So they ship them green and ripen them in gas chambers. The gas, ethylene is somewhat natural, but still,a man can't walk into the ripening chambers with out being killed by this gas. Well, that got me looking at a lot of the growing we do in this country, it's not good. There are 6 big company's, including Monsanto, Basf, Bayer, Syngenta, Dow and one more that use GMO growing practices on everything they grow. So for about 30 years, we have been eating all this Round up, agent orange, Hep c etc. And over those years, we have increased cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer's, allergy's, ADHD and many other ills. On this mornings news, we are told that ADHD has doubled the last few years. A mother to be that eats GMO grown foods, passes on to her child big chances of cancer ADHD etc. This is all documented, and can be pulled up and checked out. It's not so much that we need cancer cures, we need to just stop it by what we eat. And there is now a big swing to organic foods, and non GMO foods. The stores are picking up on our desire to be healthier. Yeah. We have options. Why would we choose to be sick, or to make our kids sick? All that needless suffering. Ok, nuf ranting. Looking for a safe mouthwash? Try this, In a container, glass if possible, put 1 cup of aloe vera juice, 1/2 cup distilled water, 2 teaspoons baking soda, a dash of salt, and 20 drops of peppermint oil, 10 drops of clove oil, and 10 drops of tea tree oil. All this can be found in most stores now, if not look for them at Amazon or Swanson Vitamins, or Mountain Rose Herbs. If you are not big on flu shots, here is an immune builder for you, in a cup put 1 teaspoon of raw or organic honey, 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric,1 Tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 ounces of hot water, mix and drink it all. It may not taste too good, but gives your system a good boost. Seems a front moved across a lot of the states this last week, we didn't get any of the wicked weather, but we have a few cool days ahead, down to the freezing mark for 2 nights, but then rebounding into the 70s by next week. Don't mind a few days, just hate prolonged cold weather. We are coming up on Thanksgiving before long, the holidays seem to gather momentum and just rapidly pass by. I have so much to be thankful for, a wonderful family, a beautiful place to live, and now a paid for home. Not that I didn't work for that! And of course the Good Lord to bless me every day. Hope you are counting your blessings too, as we get ready for that turkey dinner. Til next time, stay well. '
