Our Toxic World: A Wake Up Call

"Ask yourself why organic farmers have more sperm and
less cancer, depression,suicide, birth-injured or
brain-damaged children than those who use pesticides.

A total of 76 US baby foods were checked and found
contain 16 different pesticides.

It is estimated that 55% of all fruits and 29% of all
vegetables contain toxic chemicals, and half of
can cause cancer.

Could this be related to the 25% increase in brain
cancer in children in the past 25 to 50 years? Twenty
children under five years of age eat an
average of eight
types of pesticides a day.

Ninety percent of the children from six months to five
years eat an average of 13 chemicals that damage the
nervous system each day.

About 108 pesticide types were found on 22
fruits and vegetables, and as many as 10 to 37
different types can be found on a single apple."
