Why Aren’t We Concerned?
Sometimes when I go to write my weekly Lu’s Views, I wonder, why am I doing this? Is anyone really listening or caring about the toxic environment we are living in, or the fact that our food is being poisoned, or that the water out of our facets is just about undrinkable?
Here in the area where I live, our fish are dying, the fish we catch is almost to the point of not being fit to eat. People are campaigning to do something to change the run off from our lawns! Just this week they had a major leak in a sewer system in our area and millions of gallons of this sewer is being dumped into our lagoon and into our ground water. I am happy people are paying attention to these situations.
But where is the concern with the massive spraying of pesticides to combat the Zika mosquito. Apparently it was passed in Congress to allow this widespread spraying (see my article from last week about the Zika pandemic). What is going to happen to our organic farmers that with much expense are avoiding poisoning their crops. What will happen if they are in the areas that this spraying will take place?
It can be easy for us to make the argument that these chemicals and pesticides are OK in small doses, and it hasn’t killed us yet so it can’t be that bad. But it almost seems there is something more to it why we use this reasoning. Are we just burying our heads in the sand? Afraid to admit we have been poisoning ourselves? Unable to accept that the FDA and health agencies have lied to us? Like to brush these truths off as conspiracies? No matter what the reason is, there comes a point where we must see what is staring us in the face and start looking at how we can begin making new choices. Returning to something that is healthier and more in line with our bodies.
I have often times been silently accused of giving “unsolicited advice.” But I do this not to criticize, but to present information that most people don’t even know where to obtain. I give it because somehow God gave me a passion to educate people how to live a healthier lifestyle. This passion has been in me as far back as I can remember. The first incidence of this that I can remember was when I was 16 and got my first car. I would hand out brochures showing that smoking may cause lung cancer to my friends when they got in my car, because I would not let anyone smoke in my car! I think that was when I was first called a “fanatic.” And remember, this was in 1953!
The question I want to raise here is, why is it that when information is presented about chemicals and toxic products do we get in a rage about the information and want to justify the continuation of its use in our bodies, on our bodies and on the planet? Even if something like Aspartame was only half as bad as it really is, why would we even want that? Why is the connection we have to our bodies so lost that we want to subject it to toxins, carcinogens, chemicals and other products that 1. are not remotely natural and 2. are not something that should be near our bodies to begin with.
It just seems as though the bigger issue here is that we have become very disconnected from not only our bodies but the planet as well (more people get riled up about the planet then their own bodies.) It has become about convenience, money, temporary happiness, filling emotional voids and staying stagnant. When this info is presented all of those buttons get pushed at once and next thing we know we are defending the use of something that should have never been brought into existence in the first place. To look at it further, even the amount of sugar and type of sugar we use in the products we use aspartame in as an alternative, is terrible as well. Any product that currently contains aspartame shouldn’t be consumed by humans to begin with. What is wrong with fruit? Vegetables? Nuts? Seeds? Why do we always need these artificially flavored and chemically enhanced products that are terrible for our health? Aspartame or no aspartame, the real thing to observe here is our disconnection from our bodies, life and the planet.
All we need to do is look around and see what is happening to our children, allergies, cancer, and diabetes, all sicknesses that should not be happening at such young ages. We may be living longer, but do you really want to live longer so you can spend your later years in a nursing home, or suffering with terrible diseases like cancer?
I am very pleased with those of you who have made positive changes in their life and for those of you who do encourage me and that is what spurs me on to continue to “do the research so that you can make good choices.”
