A Modern David & Goliath Story
Imagine you went to work every day and at the end of the year you actually lost money. Would you continue to work there?
Unfortunately, that situation is a reality for many small farmers today.
The amount of money needed to get their crop in the ground and the equipment needed to harvest it far exceeds the amount they’re paid for their crops. Farm bankruptcies and suicide are at an all time high.
We’re at a point where the little guys can’t compete with huge companies that want to dominate our food production.
These are the same companies that are pushing farmers to use GMOs, pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and any other “cide” you can think ok. We’re told these things are necessary to feed the world. Today 93% of the crops grown in the US are GMO and guess what? People are still starving and we’re sicker than ever.
What happens when these giants have total control over all of our food?
The Institute for Responsible Technology put out this information and this graph was also identical for stroke, dementia, Alzheimers, Parkinson’s disease, obesity, renal failure, hepatitis c, hypertension, intestinal infection, Inflammatory bowel disease, autism, diabetes, congenital birth defects, liver cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, thyroid cancer, acute myeloid leukemia, ADHD, anemia, anxiety, & schizophrenia.
And we’re at risk for things like this:
We are living out a modern day David & Goliath story.
If you don’t remember the whole story, David won against all odds. A stone hit the giant in the head and he came crashing down.
Seeing headlines like this tell me we are winning, like David, against all odds.
We're sending a strong message that we won't accept harmful practices anymore. We're winning because enough of us are standing up for what's right and now the organic & regenerative movements are the fasting growing sectors in agriculture.
What type of stone are you? A pebble or a boulder? Click here to join us in the fight!
Together we can create safer food, healthier people, and a healthier planet.
Romans 12:21 - "Don't let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good."
Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving!
