It's supposed to be a work day for me but instead I am on my couch crying.
I'm crying for my father, who had Parkinson's, a degenerative disease that took his memories, his mobility, his vitality and his joy, until he was just a shadow and ready to pass on.
I'm crying for my friend whose partner has Parkinson's, and their young daughter who will never experience the full greatness of her father.
I'm crying for a family member with cancer, a friend whose mother has Alzheimers, and another whose child had cancer.
I'm crying for everyone who suffers from auto-immune diseases, allergies, autism, and ADHD.
I'm crying because we are creating all of these chronic diseases by isolating ourselves from nature.
We have created toxic lives in toxin-filled homes eating toxic food.
It is time for us to turn away from pesticides.
This is an 80-year experiment that has failed miserably.
In trying to kill weeds and insects we are actually killing ourselves and our planet.
We have lost over half of the life on the planet, including up to 90% of the insects in some areas.
Gyphosate, the number one pesticide on the planet, is present in 80% of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and every morsel of non-organic bread we eat.
Childhood degenerative diseases are skyrocketing and the largest economic driver in the USA is chronic disease management.
