In my opinion, a calling has to be socially responsible. It must help create a more just, loving, and sustainable world.
I bring this up because last week I learned that some brain
The pursuit of agriculture could be a calling for some.
Collaborating with nature to grow beautiful, nutritious things is a great
fulfillment. Tragically, many who practice agriculture do it in a way that is
anything but socially responsible. These misguided folks have come to regard
Mother Nature as an enemy that must be battled. This rose
Agribusiness is polluting our (yours, mine and everyone’s) air
and water, depleting and eroding our soil, and poisoning our food. We unwittingly
ingest all the environmental toxins which agribusiness indiscriminately pours
on the earth. And since these toxins cannot be metabolized, the body stores
them in the fatty tissue where they have a 40
Studies also show that these toxins have been associated with hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several types of cancer, and other disorders such as allergies. But farmers and the manufacturers of these poisons don’t care. They happily dump still more of it on our dear Mother Earth and, as a result, more and more of it ends up in our bellies and permanently in our bodies. Even if one government bans a substance because of the environmental havoc it causes, the manufacturer happily sells it for use elsewhere in the world.
And God only knows what future disaster awaits us with all the genetically modified organisms Monsanto et al are foisting on our planet.

This is why eating organic food is so absolutely important.
While, on one hand, we may want cheap food for budgetary reasons because
organic, on the surface, is not cheap. But in the long run, if we factor in the
deleterious, even disastrous, effect on our health and environment, non
Furthermore, organic food tastes better and has a higher nutritional content. The farmers who are growing it should be supported. They are striving to be in tune with Mother Nature and we owe it to ourselves and to our planet to make sure they continue. None of us can follow our callings if we are sick from all these poisons. Besides, if more people buy organic, prices will come down and purveyors of poison will be put out of business. That day can’t come soon enough.
And don’t get me started on the barbaric way livestock is raised. Even Nazi concentration camps were more humane.
P.S. There just happens to be a place that has a proven method that is able to purge fat-soluble toxins from the body. They are right around the corner (a long corner) about one mile from my house.
