(NaturalNews) In a time of intense propaganda about food safety, California recently approved the use of a chemical regularly used to create cancer in lab animals for use on strawberries that will be shipped around the world. The chemical is methyl iodide and some scientists call it the most dangerous chemical known to man. Scientists use protective gear when using it in the lab because of the cancer risk and the chemical's easy ability to damage our DNA. Of course, damaged DNA leads to problems for the holder of that DNA, and for all future generations that inherit it too. The chemical is also known to cause brain and reproductive damage, so it's a move that California has made to ensure strawberries will be about as unsafe as possible.

It's also a move that calls into question what exactly food safety is all about. In a lot of minds, having produce that isn't grown in a toxic soup of poisons would be a very logical first step. Getting rid of factory farms that improperly feed and drug the animals, pollute the air and water, and turn out diseased animals would be another logical step. Instead, the government supports these activities and allows even more toxic chemicals into our food supply, like methyl iodide - in spite of consumer and scientific community protest.

Scientists have assured us that using methyl iodide on strawberries will mean it will end up in California's groundwater. And groundwater makes up over 30 percent of the water delivered to California homes. California water already has numerous poisons in it and even if people drink purified water, it's common to absorb about a gallon of water with each shower.

California regulators have failed to look at what this will do to the future of California and California's children. In years to come, it's unlikely property values will maintain, when even more of the population is developing cancer due to this cancer-causing chemical being pumped into homes as drinking water. Just ask residents of Pompton Lakes, New Jersey. It's a DuPont factory town with poisoned groundwater and an uncanny number of residents with cancer - and they're finding it's really hard to sell their homes. http://www.naturalnews.com/027818_DuPont_tox...

Some Native Americans live by the principle of seven generations. This means they look at how their actions today affect the population seven generations down the line. Today, lawmakers often have trouble looking even one generation down the line. If they did, decisions like this one to use poisons in the food supply would never be made.

It's a sad reflection of the state of consciousness of legislators and 700 California strawberry farmers that would just as soon poison the population, as try something different. A process called soil solarization has been shown to be just as effective in improving crop yield and controlling pests as the use of dangerous chemicals like methyl iodide. And soil solarization only involves covering the fields with plastic tarps for a few weeks before planting to heat the soils. The heating process effectively destroys many pathogens and it also releases beneficial nutrients from the soil. Solarization is also less expensive for farmers than chemical treatments, which is a bonus, but when it comes down to whether or not to poison the Earth and population, cost shouldn't be the dominate factor.

If strawberries are grown without toxic chemicals, they're very healthy foods. They're known to protect our cells and heart and they have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties too. Strawberries are actually the most popular berry fruit in the world - and ninety percent of the strawberries eaten in the U.S. are grown in California.

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.
