I could probably post something several times a week, from Dr. Mercola's newsletter and website. I have much respect for those who will take on issues that affect our health and well being. So many issues that the mass media ignore, get bought off, or simply "sweep under the rug", hoping no one will notice.
My heart sinks when I think about big business, and professionals filled with so much greed and desire for money and power that they will "dumb us down" or keep the lay public away from the "truth" about things that harm us, alter our DNA, and even kill us.
Is it too much to ask our government to do their best to provide us with ... good water, air, and food? For example, there's such a controversy about plastic, and yet ... we are living in a world of PLASTIC. Why are toxic chemicals used in foods, vanity products, and even inanimate objects that we surround ourselves with in our homes? The pest control people try to convince me what they use is NOT harmful (anymore). Granted I can't "smell" it, but I get heart palpitations, feel disoriented, and a slight headache.
I could give you example after example ... if something is not for human consumption, or unsafe to use, why EVER use it, in ANYTHING? How often I hear, "it's in such miniscule doses, there is no harm." BS, is my response. I weigh on the side of nothing in "excesss" is healthy, but I do not agree with justifying use of something that inherently wrong.
Too bad there isn't a course that can be "given" or "taken" to teach "common sense". It seems to be profusely lacking ... especially when I see people just "accept" whatever those big boys wanna shove at us, as truth.
I feel the key is to learn about those issues that affect you, your children, family, and even generations to come. If you can't change the world, perhaps you can at least be vigilant about protecting your own.
