I have lost most of my confidence in health or whole food stores or organic products.
My experience is that when honest organic products have success and develop consumer trust, they are quickly bought out by a big business and diluted.
Manipulating consumer trust is where the conspiracy begins.
An article in the Washington Post, “This is the end of Monsanto as the world has long known it” (2) shows how far big business will go to eliminate transparency. The article says (bolds are mine):
New owner Bayer announced Monday that it will nix the brand name as soon as August, when its $66 billion acquisition of Monsanto is expected to be complete.
The merger, approved by the Justice Department last week, will create the largest seed and agrochemical company on Earth, uniting Bayer’s pesticide business with Monsanto’s genetically modified crop portfolio.
In the process of amassing that portfolio, Monsanto has become one of the most-hated large companies in the world. Its name is regularly splashed across protest banners and invoked in arguments against the alleged harms of pesticides and GMOs.
The decision to drop Monsanto’s name is part of a wider campaign to win back consumer trust.
Oxfam International created a report “Behind the Brands,” that focused on 10 of the world’s biggest and most influential food and beverage companies. These corporations employee more than a billion workers which is about a third of the global workforce.
These firms are so powerful that their policies can have a major impact on global nutrition and the environment.
Here are the companies that this report identifies as controllers of much of the world’s food: Nestle’s; Associated British Foods (Mazola corn oil and Twinings tea); The Coca-Cola Company; Groupe Danone S.A. (world’s largest seller of fresh dairy products); General Mills (Betty Crocker, Green Giant and Pillsbury); The Kellog Company; Mars (M&Ms, Milky Way, Snickers, Uncle Ben’s rice, Wrigley gum); Kraft Foods; Mondelez (Cadbury, Nabisco, Oreo); PepsiCo Inc. and Unilever Group.
Even worse, you can be sure that all of them use products created by Monsanto or whatever the company will be called. That’s why I created a report about the dangers created by the Bayer Monsanto merger.
Instead Merri and I avoid fresh and health food stores and focus on local products where we can see the source and process as well as know the people involved better.
I have developed local raw dairy sources and organic meat, poultry and fish sources in both North Carolina and Florida.
In North Carolina we use Rose Mountain Butcher Shoppe.
Ann Rose offers produce from 40 local farms.
In Florida we use Sunshine Farms about 20 minutes from our house.
Plus I soak all my veggies and fruit in Purely Green to remove toxicity.
You can see why below.
Food For Thought and Better Health With Purely GreenMerri and I take the cleanliness of our food supply seriously.
In North Carolina we eat a lot of wild food and vegetables we grow in our garden.
surrounding our house with lettuce of all types, greens and herbs.
Our greenhouse allows us to start our planting early.
In the spring nature provides us with dandelions and a wonderful lettuce (called branch lettuce) that grows wild in the creek later to be supplemented by Bee Balm and Echinacea for tea.
Here is echinacea and tomatoes growing in front of our meditation room.
Here is a bit of our harvest.
This time of year, we harvest our grapes and collect apples from our many apple trees. We have acres of…
wild blackberries in the summer and wild mountain strawberries in the late spring.
Our chickens provide us with summer meals like this.
We also have a greenhouse in Florida and start the gardening process again in winter.
In addition we have citrus, grapes, figs, blueberries and loquats that provide us with Florida fruit throughout the year.
These crops, plus trout in North Carolina, bass and panfish from our Florida lake allow us to eat less commercially grown food.
This gardening is fulfilling, provides gentle exercise and we find picking our own food especially satisfying. Plus there are some enormous health benefits.
Dr. John Douillard at Lifespa.com (1) points out that “Environmental pollutants, cancer causing chemicals, plastics, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals and industrial waste overwhelm the body’s natural detoxification pathways. Toxic cloud plumes from burning coal cover most of the United States and lace even our organic vegetables with heavy metals. Pesticides and preservatives have infiltrated their way into almost all the food consumed in America and can store in the body’s fat, including the brain, for years. Industrial wastes have permeated our ground water and can enter our body by simply washing our organic veggies with tap water. Over time these stored chemicals undermine our immunity, render us susceptible to disease, infection and premature aging.”
This is why Merri and I clean our our vegetables and fruit, especially those we purchase in the store, with Purely Green 25.
I asked our friend, Ted Tidwell, who manufactures Purely Green to explain how this works.
Ted replied: In order for pesticides to remain on the plant and effective during rains, they are encased in oil. An ordinary vegetable wash that does not dissolve oil will permit pesticidal residues to remain on the plant and be ingested.
PurelyGreen is powerful enough to dissolve crude oil and tar, so it easily dissolves the oil and removes the poisonous pesticides. Ted
Merri and I use Purely Green 25, diluted at the rate of two (2) ounces per quart of water is our preferred method for cleaning purchased fresh fruit and vegetables.
We simple spray our fruits and vegetables thoroughly and generously with Purely Green and let it penetrate for several minutes before rinsing.
This removes the oil encrusted toxic chemical pesticides that ordinary veggie washes cannot remove.
This also improves the taste by removing the oil and toxins and extends the freshness and edibility for several additional days.
Purely Green is certified carcinogen free. Many consumers save the cost of expensive organic produce by removing the insecticides with Purely Green. This organic cleaner/degreaser helps the environment and poses no threat to humans, animals or marine life.
Recently Ted sent this note to me: EcoCert International has certified BioWash 25, BioWash 100 and BioWash Soil Amendment as ORGANIC. This achievement will help enrich hundreds of distributors and thousands of organic growers.
ECOCERT (2) is an organic certification organization, founded in France in 1991. It is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world. The company inspects about 70% of the organic food industry in France and about 30% worldwide. ECOCERT is also a leading certifier of fair trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per ECOCERT Fair Trade Standards.
Congratulations to Ted. It is great to see other organizations confirm what we have known and have let readers know for decades.
There is also a huge financial savings. Three quarts of 409 household cleaner delivered by Amazon.com is $16.98 or about $5.66 per quart before shipping. You then have shipping costs or have to pay to be an Amazon Prime customer for free shipping. But $5.66 per quart is about the best you’ll get for 409 household cleaner.
One gallon of Purely Green 25 is $96. This is a concentrate that is mixed 15 to 1 (two ounces per appx. quart 30 ounces of water). That gallon of Purely Green creates 64 quarts of ready to use at less than $2.00 per quart.
There is one drawback to the Purely Green products, a high cost of shipping. Ted does not offer Purely Green in stores and Fedex charges quite a bit for shipping. The shipping, for a gallon averages out around $26 a gallon. So the Purely Green and shipping are $122.
If you were to purchase the same amount of a traditional non organic house cleaner (such as Clorox 409) from Amazon.com, you would pay $266.24 more.
You can order one gallon here and the shipping is included.
One Gallon of Purely Green 25 $122. Buy Purely Green 25, one gallon
We are bombarded daily with toxicities of every sort. We see toxic news. We are sold and served toxic food. Much of our water supply contains poisons. There are chemicals in the air. Anything we can do to reduce the pollution that gets in our bodies can help us get and maintain natural health. I hope that sharing this program for Purely Green will help create a cleaner world.
