gallery Pesticides and Chemicals costing us billions in health care

Pesticides, herbicides and other toxic chemicals are taking their toll on the planet and on us. As much as the chemical cartel would like to make us believe their concoctions are causing more good than harm, that’s simply not true. When you consider their ties to the pharmaceutical industry, you have to wonder what if any motivation they could have to reduce our exposure to their toxic brews.

Here’s a National Geographic article worth reading:

Chemical Exposure Linked to Billions in Health Care Costs

Chemicals that can mimic or block estrogen or other hormones are commonly found in thousands of products around the world, including plastics, pesticides, furniture, and cosmetics.


“If you applied these [health care] numbers to the U.S., they would be applicable, and in some cases higher,” says Birnbaum, director of the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.


The researchers detailed the costs related to three types of conditions: neurological effects, such as attention deficit disorders; obesity and diabetes; and male reproductive disorders, including infertility.

While sensible nations of the world require GMO foods to be labeled, here in America we’re still waiting for our government to require labeling and safety testing. This is very peculiar. Anything that’s not labeled “100% organic, non-GMO verified.” contains toxic pesticides and genetically engineered ingredients. In the U.S. look out for these potentially harmful ingredients from these major GMO crops:

  • Corn, corn syrup: Bt corn causes male sterility; damages the liver and kidneys.
  • Cotton, cottonseed oil: Animals grazing on GMO cotton can get sick and die.
  • Sugar: Most sugar is now derived from GMO sugar beets.
  • Soy: GMO soy is linked with sterility and unusual things like hair growing in the      mouth, believe it or not.
  • Canola oil (rapeseed): Produces long chains of non-digestible trans fatty acids.
  • Rice
  • Papaya
  • Yellow squash, zucchini
  • Alfalfa
  • WHEAT that causes liver failure and CABBAGE laced with scorpion poison? !

And don’t forget animals fed GMO grains and feed will carry the pesticides and GMO proteins in their meat, eggs, and milk. Dairy cows additionally have the rBGH (genetically modified growth hormone) contaminating their milk, which gets passed on to us.

Factory Farm Animals fed GMOs include:

  • Cows (GMO rBGH growth hormone as well)
  • Chickens and Turkeys
  • Pigs
  • Goat and Sheep
  • Farmed Fish
