country n news-sounds not good


this week after reading this article
i walked into my garden
looking at all the produce i am growing
soon to be eaten or frozen for later use
i was thinking
no way
no way do i have to worry about any of this happening
here at the
country n

i bought chemical not contaminated
best you could get
garden soil when i started my gardens
i used my own compost that i make myself
my chickens make it for me

so i know there is not bad stuff in my soil
i only use organic products in my garden

so anything inside that 600 square foot compound
i know whats in it
when i eat this produce
i know that it doesnt have any of this bad stuff
in it

what bad stuff you may ask
brand name

i guess the disturbing thing is that glyphosate has been
found in the urine and breast milk of breastfeeding moms
it seems a us study didnt find any
but european studies have
high rates
the us study
so some of the lab was done by monsanto
some by a wink wink independent lab

did you know that there is an allowable level of glyphosate
ie round up
in our drinking water
no not mine but yours

no not the country n drinking water
its glyphosate or round up free
it seems there arent spraying it in the skies yet
wait i think they are arent they
thats how they get it on the crops

at least thats happening a long way from here
like maybe 50 miles away

so what happens is
seeds are grown that are glyphosate resistant
as the plant grows
the crops are then sprayed with that stuff
killing all the weeds
maybe us
but they are just doing it gradually

there is a thing called
acceptable daily intake or adi of glyphosates established
by the fda
oh excuse me
that doesnt quite sound right
shouldnt the number be
0 thats ZERO

as you feed your kids
heres some food levels that are high
cheerios   doritos   oreos   honey cheerios   ritz crackers
special k maybe it should be renamed special g or special r

these are just some of the products listed in the article
i read about this
there are lots more also

liver and kidney disease has been found in animals exposed
to this stuff
wonder what it would do to a baby or a kid

its also found in baby food and honey

this should make those of you who have babies
and young kids
real uncomfortable

we always have an extra place at our table
you would like to drink glyphosate free or roundup free
remember its allowed in your drinking water
glyphosate free or roundup free food
from our
organic country n garden
