pass it on...
also, there's this...
You don’t “know” that “most organic food is better” Samantha, you just “believe” it. Big difference…
I notice a lot of people here that seem to be paid by Big Organics to make statements on the safety of GMO/pesticides. And that’s all I’ll say.
I don’t always eat organic, but when I do, I spend money for nothing.
The makers of the video ( an organic outlet) have been fined for misrepresentation by their government. No they neglected to test for the organic pesticides which can be way more toxic then synthetic.
The video is blatantly false. Of the chemicals listed, here they are:
Chlormequat has been called the “most important inhibitor of gibberellin biosynthesis.” As such, it inhibits cell elongation, resulting is thicker stalks, which are sturdier, facilitating harvesting of cereal crops.(It works on cell walls which animals do not have, meaning it is inert in animal tissue)
Mepiquat chloride is used as the systemic growth regulator.This is the cell elongation is inhibited thereby reducing the longitudinal growth of the plants. (Again, this one affects the plant wall. It is used to keep cereal plants alive in colder climates)
BPA is a plastic found in some food containers. Both the FDA and the EFSA have concluded, after numerous studies, that the amounts found in food (transferred via the containers) is safe.
TCP (1,2,3-Trichloropropane) is the only legitimate toxin listed. It used to be used in industrial sealants and varnishes, but makes a minute appearance in certain pesticides. However, the quantities are incredibly minute.
Also consider the dosages listed above. They are in nanograms per milliliter. Arsenic is considered safe at levels below 50 mcg/ml, or 50,000 ng/ml. So even the highest concentration listed in the video are well below the safe levels of arsenic, one of the most potent toxins in the human body.
Did they test for organic pesticides too? Somehow I doubt it.
I notice alot of people here that seem to be paid by some GMO companies to make statements on the safety of GMO/pesticides. And that’s all I’ll say.
I don’t always eat organic, but I know most of the food is better (except soy milk, which is basically processed soy with water added).
