(NaturalNews) On most dirty produce lists, strawberries make the cut for pesticide contamination. Currently, California strawberry growers use millions of pounds a year of a chemical called methyl bromide. Methyl bromide is banned in many parts of the world and is being phased out because it damages the ozone layer. Like every chemical pesticide, methyl bromide comes with health risks. Respiratory, nervous system, and neurological problems are common with the chemical - and it's especially dangerous to people working on or living near the farms. Now, we're getting this dangerous chemical out of strawberry fields, but it'll be replaced with another chemical that can damage our DNA, as well as cause miscarriages, cancer and brain damage. The new chemical, methyl iodide, is actually considered more toxic than the chemical it's replacing.

The current debate is over how much of this chemical farm workers and town residents will really be exposed to and how severe the health problems they'll have as a consequence. However, the debate really should be: how do we move away from dangerous chemicals as solutions to agricultural problems? Just as we need to move away from dirty oil, we need to move away from polluting our earth and our food growing communities with pesticides. With this choice, we'd also take a step away from polluting the entire human race that ends up eating chemically contaminated crops and drinking contaminated water. Scientists say that using this chemical in agriculture ensures that it will end up in the air and groundwater.

Part of the problem with attempting to figure low end ranges of exposure to known poisons is that no one is accounting for what other poisons people already have in their bodies. For example, if you were to eat a strawberry sprayed with chemical pesticides and you'd never been exposed to chemicals before in your life, the chemical-laced strawberry would probably make you immediately ill. This is because your immune system would be much more active and therefore mount a greater response to threats than most people's do today. However, because you weren't already so chemically polluted your body would be able to detoxify this chemical out of your body.

But today, that isn't the case. It's now being widely documented that pesticides and many other chemicals are backing up in people's bodies and never really being eliminated. When this is the case, no chemical is safe. It's like trying to determine what degree of spanking to give a child that's just been in an accident and has 16 broken bones and severe burns all over the body. Even if you could somehow argue that hitting a child is helpful, or that pesticides in our foods are okay, the damage that's already been done is too great to even consider it reasonable to inflict more - especially when non-toxic, natural solutions are available for anyone who looks into them.

About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
