How The Organic Label Kills
There are about 2 reasons to eat. People eat for pleasure and to nourish their body. In the past 22 years, I have had the pleasure to witness the Organic food evolution. As we have more and more Organic food, we have more and more obesity and sickness. ??What’s up with that!!
This has bothered me and has been kicking around in my mind for some time. ??Why is Organic not enough to keep us healthy and is there another indicator that would let us know if our food is capable of giving us the nutrition and quality of life we are seeking? Could the Organic label be leading us to eat dangerously unhealthy foods?
I will preface my conclusions with some history. In the late 1980’s some Americans got the notion that food should nourish the body. They also figured that squeezing the tomatoes, looking at the color and sniffing was not enough to determine if food was healthy. They then developed something called the California Organic Act of 1990. For many years, this was the gold standard. Food labeled thus, was free of pesticides and met certain standards.
Many, including myself were impressed with this and purchased food that was labeled as being in compliance with these standards. I still recommend that people, who want organic, eat food that meets these standards.
I noticed that people who were eating organic for a while looked pretty sickly but when my patients started eating organic, they perked up and started looking and feeling better.
In the past 2 years I have lived outside the United States. The same produce I ate in the United States was difficult to recognize. Celery was 3 feet long because the tops were included, grapefruit had more seeds than flesh, broccoli heads were 1/3 the size, oranges were yellow or green – I could go on. After 2 weeks of eating this stuff, I had more energy than when I was eating 100% organic in the United States. This is when I suspected that I had overlooked something.
I when I lived in the United States, I shopped at one of the high end groceries in town. They had an organic produce section as well as a regular produce section. One day, I was talking to the produce manager and remarked that the organic peaches looked a lot like the regular peaches. He said, “Yeah, I keep telling the stock boys that when we run out of organic, they can’t just fill the bin with regular produce.” In other words, the bins labeled organic were often just the regular produce relocated a few feet.
Later, I started an organic buying club. I could tell you about the miraculous healings that occurred but, that would be digressing. The produce was shipped in 50 pound crates labeled organic. The individual fruit or vegetable was not labeled and strips of little organic stickers were included with the shipment so that the produce could be labeled. There were so many organic stickers that my daughter used them to decorate her possessions. You get my drift. The same stickers, in a busy produce department, could find more sinister uses.
With organic produce commanding a much higher price than regular produce, this is a moral hazard. The temptation is great, the rewards are great, the penalty nil and the opportunity is so easy. Besides, who would know?
What has happened is we as consumers have been duped. We have equated the organic label with healthy food or food that will advance our objectives of better health. My father once said that life can only come from life. So, if we want our food to give us life, we have to start with life giving food. Our world has become so complex that it is getting difficult to tell what a life giving food is. This is a very important determination to make.
The GMO’s Labelled as Organic Scare
It doesn’t end there. While living in what many would call a thrd world country, I met a Shaman from Peru. I had picked up a parasite and asked him what he would advise that was natural. He recommended a strict diet that included grapes with seeds. I thought this was curious and I asked him what about organic. He shrugged his shoulders. He told me the seeds were more important. When I asked him why, he told me: A plant that does not have the power to regenerate itself is not able to heal the human. Then it hit me. People have been eating genetically engineered and devitalized food for decades. These foods now bear the Organic label.
The seedless grapes, seedless oranges, seedless watermelon… These foods, even in their organic version, cannot impart health to you. Evidence of this is the prominence of grape seed extract. If people ate grapes with the seeds, the intestinal tract would create its own extract as the seeds moved through the intestinal tract to the rectum. The most recent addition to the miracle supplements is the watermelon seed extract. You can see where this is headed.
A common method used by the scientific community is the ability to reproduce. Can the food you are about to purchase produce another of its kind? First, does it have seeds? If it is seedless, it cannot reproduce itself and cannot give life to you. This little piece of genetic modification totally passed under the radar. A whole generation eagerly consumed the latest seedless wonder unaware of the lack of vitality in the food. (Human infertility skyrocketed; could there be a connection). There are people who protest Genetically Modified Foods (GMO) but insist on seedless grapes. Some people object to terminator seeds but eat seedless oranges.seedless raisins, seedless watermellon. Terminator technology and seedless technology both rob your food of its health giving properties. To label one as harmful and not the other is a form of omission.
