I just want to post why I use heirloom produce. Everyone states the taste is why. but the real reasoning behind heirloom is to avoid what poisons have been added to our foods. hybrids bring up 200x's the amount of metals in the soil, than heirloom. metals accumulate and make us sick. also pesticide genes and fish genes are added. in no way do we benifit from any of these things. the media is filtered. other countries demand labeling and testing of these ge/hybrid foods. and in doing so they have discovered the pesticide gene accumulated and causes breast and prostate cancer. etc. canada is now about to use ge wheat. and japan and other countries are fighting it. but guess what not america. In fact I bet you didnt even know this war is going on. Its sad to think our government cares more for our global economy than our health. We are fed lies that its nessesary to feed the masses. thats funny cus I couldnt afford a tomato. here is a usefull link for more info
this site does not filter whats going on in the world with respect to our food. click on the kraft site and watch the genetically krafted movie. people need to educate ourselves and demand ge labeling and testing. a great book full of pictures is called: fatal harvest, the tragedy of industrial agriculture., cant recall the author. please forgive me if I seem a bit angry but my friends son who is 12 now has crohns disease. and the doctor said no hybrid or ge food. the poor kids cant eat anything. theres no labeling. he is withering away. and imagine he isnt the only one.
