Remember a couple of emails ago we sited frogs as being the canary in the mine? The common herbacide, atrazine, causes hermaphroditism 100% of the time when exposedto even very small dosages. Atrazine stimulates an enzyme called aromatase, which converts the male hormone testosterone into the female hormone estrogen.
In the U.S. today, we use an astounding 2.2billion pounds of pesticides a year.
Lets take a look at how chemicals and pollution affect our children:
We have just looked at three categories of de-evolutionary pollutant: pesticides, organic solvents and plastics, and it is just the tip of the iceberg. The assault of toxic chemical, heavy metals, herbacides, and pesticides is impacting children’s bodies. Conditions such as hormone disruption or neurological symptoms are the very signs and indication of the de-evolutionary process. At the end of the day, when we speak of de-evolution, we are taking in account the evolution or de-evolutionof the whole biosphere. The evolutionary process has led us to the mammals and human species, whereas the de-evolutionary process is taking us backward in the direction of simpler forms of life by the elimination of the higher forms. Evolution is the forward movement of any species; getting stronger and more able to survive, improving the ability to produce vibrant, smarter offspring, with enhanced attributes; physically and mentally. We can see this process happening to “Super bugs”; their offspring are able to survive tougher conditions. Our children on the other hand, are experiencing a pandemic of chronic illness, impaired neurological functions and a host of complicated maladies. The planet is not a hospitable environment for our children to thrive and flourish in any more. We need a planet wide “make-over”.
Clinical Note: There is no such a thing as a neutral existence on earth: we either thrive or we decay. We either evolve or we de-evolve, depending on the conditions around us and within us. The Therapeutic Foods Line is foundational for turning the body back into a repair and healing mode, awakening the body’s natural responses to do the functions it needs to do for survival. Start your child’s day with a Triple Berry to protect the brain and the microbiome, neutralize free radicals, add the Cruciferous Sprouts Complex three times a week to clean and detoxify the blood and liver.
The Therapeutic Food Platform Webinar- join us. Each Thursday and Friday at 9:30 am and again at 12:30 pm (PST) we present a half-hour overview of the Therapeutic Foods, how they are produced, foundational protocols and synergistic combinations. It is a great practical overview! Simply call or email us as to the session you would like to attend and we will email you the link.
The Last Quiz Answer: Did you guess Bifidobacterium? Good job. There are more than twenty-five recognized species of Bifidobacterium although only about ten are ordinarily used commercially as probiotics. These include: Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium adolescentis, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium lactis and Bifidobacterium longum. Bifidobacteria are gram positive, non-motile, non-sporing rods with a high G+ C content (55% to 67 mol%).
This green fact takes you to an exercise in human karyotyping using digital images of chromosomes from actual human genetic studies. Karyotype analyses are performed over 400,000 times per year in the US and Canada; the conclusion of which can have profound affect on lives. Good luck!!http://www.biology.arizona.edu/human_bio/activities/karyotyping/karyotyping.html
