So for those who don’t know Glyphosate is Roundup, and has been proven harmful to humans at levels as small as 0.01ppb (parts per billion). I have to admit I’ve linked you to a long report, and since many of us don’t have the time to read the whole thing I will summarise it for you:
Hi everyone Ali here,
I have just recently come across a huge amount of information that is scaring the crap out of me, so I feel the need to share it and let you and yours know about it too.
Did you know that there are over 3000 ingredients used in personal care products, cleaning products, supplements and bathroom products that are Toxic. These hidden toxins can cause skin and eye irritation, cell mutation (also known as cancer), inflammation, liver damage, kidney damage etc. And you know what’s worse? They don’t even tell us about it. Have a look at your personal care and skin care products, do you see parabens? sodium laurel sulfates? Do you even know what they are? I didn’t. Can you pronounce the ingredients on the label? I dare you to Google half of those ingredients. Do yourself and your family a favour and use this amazing wealth of information called the internet and educate yourself on the products you are putting on your skin, and on your child’s skin. The bubble baths you use, the shampoos you use, the body washes you use. I was horrified. I’m now looking for a product I can use that has very little, if any toxins in it. As my mentor Isabel De Los Rios (creator of Beyond Diet) says if you can’t pronounce it don’t use it. Lets look at an example Continue reading “Hidden Toxins”
This Clever Man managed to patent a sustainable way to protect your crops from pests. He’s a Mycologist (Specialises in Fungi) and has patented a genetically modified insect toxic mushroom that does not create spores. Usually this specific mushroom has pheromones that warns insects against eating it, but this clever man has genetically modified the mushroom so that it does the opposite, it attracts crop eating insects towards it (also known as a sacrificial crop), they eat the mushroom, and the fungi attacks the insect from the inside out.
This patent could be the thing that cripples Monsanto (the creators of the non-specific herbicide roundup, the patented GMO Canola, GMO Cotton, and producers of the insecticides DDT and agent orange). Not all GMO is bad GMO, it’s only bad if we ingest it, and only because we don’t know what it can do to us. Using a GMO Insect toxic mushroom as a sacrificial crop is a sustainable way to protect your crops from pests.
Let me begin with my story. I am now a stay at home mum with a 19 week old baby girl. She’s my life, my number one priority. The other love of my life, my husband, is a beautiful, supportive, loving father and my best friend, but I rarely see him as he works FIFO to support our lifestyle. I want him to come home again, but I definitely don’t want to go back to cleaning, or working for a boss, to get him here. Especially considering the cost of childcare; At $150 a day for childcare, it’s cheaper for me to stay at home.
One fortunate morning I was in my daughters room tidying up a bit, when I heard the unmistakable FB messenger knock from my husbands “Perth phone”, (he can’t use the carrier at work, and it’s my job to keep him updated about any messages and calls he receives while he’s at work). I picked up his phone to check it out and it was a message from a woman I used to go to school with. I hadn’t heard from her since school, so that makes it…13 years. She sent him a fairly nervous sounding message that said something along the lines of Continue reading “Why do I Choose Inner Origin”
