At The Dinner Table Each And Every Night!"


Take Control of What Your Family Eats Daily.
Get Rid of All Of the Harmful Chemicals And
Purify Your Food With Organic Gardening!

Dear Gardener:

Have you ever considered what the chemicals that are applied to the foods that we eat every day can do to you and your family’s health? It’s quite scary when you think about it.

Government studies indicate that pesticides can contribute to a myriad of life-threatening illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis, and birth defects. They can also contribute to higher stress levels, insomnia, muscle weakness, and depression.

Two of the most popular classes of insecticides used in the U.S. are organophosphates and carbamates. They are designed as neurotoxins, poisoning the nervous systems of unwanted insects. However, they can harm human nervous systems as well. They are found in lawn sprays, weed killer sprays, roach and ant sprays, and even head-lice shampoo.

Children are more vulnerable to the effects of pesticide exposure because their internal organs are still developing and maturing. Pregnant women who are exposed to certain pesticides can spread that contamination on to their unborn children as well causing birth defects and later health problems.

Some may say that the exposure isn’t enough to worry about. We’ve been using chemicals on our food for years, why stop now? But when you think about it, farmers didn’t use chemicals on their
crops back in the 1800’s, and they grew healthy, productive food anyway!

It’s Time We Got Back To That Way Of Life! We Can Do That By
Growing Our Food And Flowers Without Chemicals!

When we use pesticides or non-organic fertilizers in our gardens and on our flowers, those chemicals produce a residue that is left behind. Rain can cause those chemicals to seep into our ground water and even our drinking water. Even taking a simple drink of water can expose us to artificial additives that we have no idea we’re ingesting.

Were you aware that the farmers who provide us with the grain that makes our bread or the tomatoes that we put on our salads use chemicals to treat their crops? Those chemicals are passed onto us when we consume those foods. What’s even more disturbing is that the majority of those farmers won’t eat the very food that they produce – because they know it contains components that could jeopardize their health.

If They Won't Eat Their Own Crops, Why Should We?

There are ways to get away from those toxins and start living a healthier lifestyle. Organic foods are not only better for the body, but they taste better and provide more nutrients to nourish us. But
part of the problem with organic foods is that they can be very expensive to buy in the store. That’s not a problem! Just grow them yourself.

Perhaps you’ve never taken up gardening but have always wanted to try? That’s alright! It’s a perfect time to do so! Maybe you’re an experienced gardener who’s always used chemical treatments on your plants but never thought about the effect those chemicals can have on your food. Even better!
