Industrial agriculture is toxic. One has only to look at the Punjab in India which was ground zero for the Green Revolution, to see what "gifts" it has delivered.
"The power point presentation and speech of Sukhi Chahal's , who is a founder of Punjab Foundation was so emotional and powerful that somefemales of the sangat cried upon knowing the ground realities of the increasing number of Childless Couples, Spontaneous Abortions, Premature Births, Low Weight Births, Early Childhood Deaths, Congenital Malformations, Menstrual Disorders, Ovary and Uterus Tumors; Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart and Blood Vessel Diseases, Bone and Joint Diseases, Allergies, Asthma and Cancers which are the well-known effects of Water Contamination and Environmental Toxicity which is visibly on the rise in Punjab." www.punjabfoundation.org
The toxicity of industrial agriculture becomes the greatest argument for the non-toxic and health giving qualities of organic farming. And beyond toxicity to life, there is what industrial agriculture is doing to the planet itself. But only half the picture is being given and there is more toxicity to come. When one points out that industrial agriculture causes cancers, the sick are then directed to industrial (conventional) medicine for the treatment of those cancers - yet industrial medical treatments for cancer are delivered by the very same companies that caused the cancers to begin with.
Pesticides and GMOs were developed and are being aggressively and corruptly promoted by the same corporations that control medical schools and research and offer toxic chemotherapy. Profits are made from industrial agriculture, cancer is created, and then even greater profits are then taken by industrial medicine. The pharmaceutical industry depends on disease and it creating its own market. Renowned cardiologist Mattias Rath describes the reality of the pharmaceutical industry's mission.
