I can attest to this. I live in a small agricultural area 75 miles south
of San Francisco.
We send so many children to Stanford Children's
Hospital for cancer, leukemia, asthma, and other problems now
being related to pesticide exposure that one nurse suggested
that they should run a bus!
The number of women I know who have been treated for cancer is
growing, men, too. And other problems such as degeneration of
muscles, back pains and an inability to stand up straight are
hindering movement. Children's behavior seems to be affected,
Those bucolic fields so lovely to look at as we drive by are full of
poisons, seeping poison gasses, weeping poisoned water. Our water
supply is being compromised. Our air quality is affected (however,
by law, pesticides are not measured by the local agency for Air
Quality). People's health is affected.
Food is political. Buying food makes a political statement. When
you purchase organic food, you are saving an area, perhaps a
whole community from this awful slow poisoning by chemical
pesticides and fertilizers.
Take a political action today--find
the nearest source of organic veggies and purchase enough to
make a celebration salad! It's your first step!
