The Real World Challenge of Surviving in a World Swimming in Pesticides

Rachel Carson, We Need You Again

Long-term exposure to pesticides has been linked to infertility, birth defects,1,2endocrine disruption, neurological disorders and cancer so it’s a common-sense conclusion that fewer pesticides in our food supply would result in improved health among the general population.

In fact, one of the strongest selling points for eating organic food is that it can significantly lower your exposure to pesticides and other harmful chemicals used in conventional agriculture, and this measure in and of itself may help protect your long-term health and/or improve any health conditions you may have.

I produced this video, Rachel Carson, We Need You Again, to bring more attention to the extensive use of pesticides in our food and the importance of knowing where the food comes from that you put into your bellies and the bellies of those you love.
