The USDA organic label is supposed to protect the consumer against being exposed to harmful chemicals and GMOs, but the sobering fact is that USDA-certified infant formula products are not only being allowed to use a pesticide in their formulas, but are advertising it as a 'healthy' mineral to unsuspecting consumers.
You might ask, "why all the fuss about agricultural genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?" After all, regulatory agencies have approved these technologies for widespread application and consumption, so they must be safe, right? Well, the truth is that there is no agency and no industry that works to protect our health. At best, the EPA, USDA, and FDA attempt to respond to our disease after the cause is widespread.
Young children are most susceptible to the toxins in pesticides which increase their risk of ADHD. Protect them by buying organic foods.

Medical ignorance is epidemic and nowhere is this more evident than in how contemporary medicine views and treats thyroid cancer. Overtreatment of thyroid cancer with radioactive iodine is rampant even though there is substantial uncertainty about the indications for radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer. Radioactive iodine absorbed by the thyroid can injure the gland.

If those who believe that fluoride doesn’t “make you stupid” (i.e. lower IQ) let themselves be exposed to it, or willfully consume it for its “health benefits,” doesn’t that prove the point? Could their fluoride-exposed brains and bodies lack the discernment needed to ascertain the dangers of such exposure?

In this first report from the Keele Conference on the biological effects of aluminum, we learn that the weakest among us, premature newborns and sickly elderly, are being poisoned with aluminum through their nutrition. The FDA’s aluminum limits are routinely ignored, while this problem, known for 30 years, continues unabated.

The scientific literature indicates that there are at least two dozen adverse health effects linked to exposure to mineral oil, a crude oil derivative. New research indicates these fat-soluble hydrocarbons are accumulating to disturbing levels in our bodies, and affecting newborns by contaminating breast milk.
We may need to teach ourselves about the 'bats and the bees' if we want to keep feeding ourselves. Research is now confirming what has been observed by many farmers: Bats are necessary for keeping many types of crop-eating insect populations from swarming, and their populations are becoming dramatically reduced due to the widespread use of pesticides on our crops.
New research has confirmed that exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) – a well-known endocrine disruptor – through mothers' breast milk is widespread.
New research from New York State University has confirmed a link exists between Bisphenol A (BPA) and obesity. But there are a few caveats that reveal an even bigger link exposed in other research: The combination of sugary sodas in canned and plastic containers.
