Parenting was never easy. While loving, teaching and nourishing children, parents also seek to protect them from harm. The past few generations, however, have been silently attacked by thousands of manmade, poisonous chemicals carried into homes and children’s bodies in our food supply. The chemical-based conventional agriculture industry claims that the synthesized concoctions they sell as pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides are safe when used as directed, but does the scientific evidence truly support their assertions?
When pesticide residues are found in 77 percent of all foods in the United States, it’s important to know the truth. Organic agriculturist André Leu has weeded through a wealth of respected scientific journals to present peer-reviewed evidence proving that the claims of chemical companies and pesticide regulators are not all they seem.
André has provided parents with a well-studied presentation of the damage in which the poison residues (pesticides) found on our foods. He also ofter plenty of researched information on the erectable developmental damage these pesticides are causing our children. While some may have the impression that the language found upon the pages will be dense, André does a brilliant job of laying all this information to his reader in layman’s terms. Poisoning Our Children was easy to understand similar to the manner in which a professor would teach a class, as opposed to discussing an important topic such as this will a fellow scientist.
I highly recommend this to any individual with an interest in learning more about the products we are not only feeding ourselves but our children as well. My one hope is that this book opens the eyes of many that will cause a change in how our food is handled. Only together we can make ourself more aware and take a step forward.
