The whole world seems out to give you cancer.
In 1900 the average American intake of sugar was about 32 oz. of refined white sugar a year. The topsoil has been depleted of trace minerals and poisoned with agricultural chemicals (and perhaps even sewage sludge) so that the food you eat is nutritionally deficient and filled with hidden dangers. A recent study of breast milk in England found that breast fed infants are receiving 40 times the allowable daily limit of toxic chemicals. In light of this, is the upsurge of childhood cancers any surprise? (Despite this it is still better to breast feed.)
Toxic farm chemicals are "radiomimetic" which means they are damaging in a manner similar to radiation. The use of toxic agricultural chemicals in the United States causes the same genetic damage to present and future generations as 72,000 atomic bombs such as was used on Hiroshima (Tompkins page xxiii).
Rockefeller takeover, medicine and health practice monopoly, 1900 to now.
