Why Buy Organic?
Food the way Mother Nature made it is clean and wholesome. Your body knows just what to do with it. After all, it has had an awfully long time to figure that out.
Organic food doesn’t contain toxins like pesticides, heavy metals, dangerous industrial chemicals (for example, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives). And everything in it is natural: it’s real food, not "Frankenfood" created in a laboratory for profit regardless of the fact that genetically modified, synthetic foods have massive, well-known health hazards.
Every item on this site is free of the dangers inherent in the industrial food supply.
What Happens If I Eat Dumb, Dangerous Food?
Dumb, dangerous food is laced with toxic industrial chemicals and additives because of the way it is grown, packaged, produced and manufactured. Its nutrient density (the amount of good stuff you get in the food you eat) is much lower than organic food while all of those industrial toxins act as poisons to the enzyme systems which life depends upon.
After all, we as a species have only encountered the 100,000+ chemicals added to toxic food and our toxic environment in the last seventy years or so. Our cells and bodies are used to real food: we don’t know what to do, biochemicaly speaking, with dumb food so we are poisoned by it. That’s why it’s dangerous.
And if the food has had its genetic make-up contaminated by scientists who have messed up the DNA of food with viruses, non-food genes, insect and human genetic bits and so on, our bodies have no way at all to deal with this dangerous stuff. This messed-up, dumb food made by smart–but not very wise–scientists working for rich — but not very responsible — companies, is called Genetically Modified Organism or GMO food. Sometimes it’s called Genetically Engineered (GE) or Biotechnical Modified (BM) food.
Whatever you call it, studies show that eating it is associated with slow, gradual organ system failure, perforated, bleeding guts, shrunken kidneys, damaged immune systems, increased serious and life threatening diseases like cancer, autoimmune disease, life threatening allergies, irregularities in the blood system, and a host of other dangerous, and deadly conditions.
And here is the dumbest part of all: this dumb and dangerous "food" does not have to be tested for safety before it is released into the food supply. It just has to have a patent on it. And patents do not take safety into account.
So what happens if you eat dumb and dangerous food? Nothing good and perhaps some really, really bad things. The US is the only country which does not require labeling of GMO food. So lots of the foods you eat everyday probably contain dangerous, dumb food including non-organic corn, soy,canola oil and many nutritional supplements!
But once you know what is dangerous and dumb, you can make choices to sustain yourself and the industries that provide you with smart, safe food. That’s why the Eat Safe, Eat Smart Buy-Cott is here. Why take chances with your life and your health?
Where Can I Buy Organic Food?
Safe Smart food is available in four ways:
- Use our site to purchase organic products which will come to your door conveniently and quickly. Once you read about a featured product that interests you, click on the link and you will find more information and have the opportunity to purchase it for yourself. If you like it, come back and do it again. That’s safe, smart shopping! Your purchase helps you, helps the producers of that safe, smart food and it helps us, too since we get a small part of your purchase price to support our work.
- Use our site to learn about organic products and purchase them at your local health food store. If they don’t carry them, point them to our site and we’ll work with them so they can get these products on their shelves for you and other Safe, Smart shoppers.
- Organic products are guaranteed to be free of dumb, dangerous stuff. If you purchase produce, make sure that 5 digit code on the little sticky label on it starts with the number "9". If it starts with "4", the produce was grown conventionally, so it contains residues of pesticides, herbicides and other dangerous industrial toxins. If it starts with "8", it’s dangerous and dumb because that code means that it is genetically modified produce. BUT once it is used in foods there is absolutely no requirement to let you know that it is dumb and dangerous. In fact, virtually all soy beans, all canola oil and pretty much all corn in markets and products in the US are GMO foods.
- Grow or purchase local, fresh, organic food. If you can grow your own food or know someone who does, you are fortunate. But don’t assume that just because someone grows food locally that it is organic. Ask if pesticides, fungicides and other toxic industrial chemicals were used on it. And make sure you ask if the crop is GMO. If the seller does not know, assume that it is dumb and dangerous, even if it is fresh and beautiful. Even though soil is depleted across the US and Americans are not getting the amount of nutrients that their ancestors ate, still, organically grown, local fresh food is ideal. It is safe, smart and delicious, too!
