PESTICIDES ARE EVERYWHERE...EVEN ON OUR FOODS..WE DISCUSS DETOX PATHWAYS TO HELP US AVOID THE INEVEITIBLE?? IS IT INEVITIBLE?? MORE ON OMEGAS AND ON CHEESE....IS IT REALLY OK FOR YOU TO EAT?
I am going to read a couple of articles that will help prove the dangers of using things like, Good Ole, Round Up! Around your yard and family, including pets. The dangers of these chemicals is way more than is ever advertised to the general public.
In our neighborhood we are pressured by the land owners to use pesticides regularly. The dangers of this are high in such close neighbor borders. If one or two neighbors use things like Round Up, we are going to have the affects of the poison too!
Only three percent of Starbucks, the largest seller of coffee is organic. That means that an average of 250 pounds of chemical fertilizer is sprayed on each acre. Most people are not aware that regular coffee consumption can be a significant cause of pesticides in their body.

“Poison’s My Game ….. What’s Yours®” with Dr. Hildy® - Series
Pesticides are chemicals designed to kill a variety of pests, such as weeds, insects, rodents, and fungi. They can be characterized on the basis of function—insecticide, herbicide, rodenticide, fungicide, and others—and on the basis of chemical class. Insecticides accounted for nearly 25% of reported pesticide use in California in the late 1990s.
Though there many classes of pesticides, organochlorines such as DDT and dieldrin, are largely banned for use in the U.S., although some are still used. Widely used in the 1960s and 1970s, organochlorines are acutely toxic and very persistent in the environment. Many have been shown to be carcinogens, reproductive toxicants, or both.
The recent push towards organic and “safe” foods has been partly due to a backlash of citizens concerned about the toxicity of these pesticides and how much of that is unintentionally getting into the foods they are designed to protect.

The Task Force on Systemic Pesticides is the response of the scientific community to concern around the impact of systemic pesticides on biodiversity and ecosystems. Its intention is to provide the definitive view of science to inform more rapid and improved decision-making.
It advises two IUCN Commissions, the Commission on Ecosystem Management and the Species Survival Commission. Its work has been noted by the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice under the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) and was brought to the attention of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) – on which four members of the Task Force serve - in the context of the fast-track thematic assessment of pollinators, pollination and food production.
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show as host, June Stoyer talks to world-renowned bumblebee expert, Dr. Dave Goulson about The Task Force On Systemic Pesticides. Stay tuned!

Many people, including some health professionals, consider ADD/ADHD an excuse for bad behavior. However, as Health Guru, Beverly Nadler will explain, brain imaging technology confirms it as a serious disorder affecting millions of children and adults.
Left untreated, it can lead to a life of misery, including alcoholism, drug addiction and even crime. Did you know that many highly intelligent and successfully functioning people have this condition? If you suspect that you or anyone you know has this disorder, you should listen to this program. It could change your life! http://www.beverlynadler.com
Each week Dr. Epley, D.C., C.C.W.P, and Dr. Gofourth, D.C. will discuss current health news and noteworthy studies, and their impact on our health. Our emphysis is primarily on toxicity and deficiency and how this stress negatively effects our health. Creating sufficency and eliminating toxicity by eating well, moving well, and thinking well can reverse the negative effects of stress and can lead to a lifetime of health and wellness.
This week we will cover music and exercise, caffeine and erictile dysfunction, sleep apnea and PTSD, skipping meals antibiotic resistance, Vitamin D and pregnancy, chest pain, Excessive, medical overdiagnosis, Tyelenol, steroids and back pain, thyroid cancer in japan, vaccine death, toxic food ingredients, dirty airplanes, psyc drugs and deaths, prilosec, salt, toxins, statins and diabetes, tattoos, medical expansion, osteoarthritis, Vitamin D related to diabetes and clogged arteries, TB and superbugs, Fish oil, the pain med Lyrica, ADHD meds, Strawberries and pesticides, health diet in relation to cardiovascular disease, fish oil and prostate cancer, IOM was wrong again, the importance of breakfast, newer side effects of diabetes medications, folic acid supplementation, CAM therapies and cancer, Breastfeeding,
A Presidential Memorandum was issued requesting that all federal agencies work together to develop a cohesive plan for pollinator protection. It was stated, “The problem is serious and requires immediate attention to ensure the sustainability of our food production systems, avoid additional economic impact on the agricultural sector, and protect the health of the environment.” This was the memorandum issued last June. Bee populations continued declining as well as other pollinators such as the Monarch butterfly. On May 19th, it was announced that under the leadership of the U.S. EPA and USDA, the Task Force was releasing its Strategy, with 3 overarching goals: Reduce honey bee colony losses to economically sustainable levels; Increase monarch butterfly numbers to protect the annual migration; and Restore or enhance millions of acres of land for pollinators through combined public and private action.
As we continue our special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald talk to Larissa Walker, the Pollinator Campaign Director and a policy analyst at the Center for Food Safety about this new strategy. Stay tuned!

Dr. Sheldon Feldman is chief of breast surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and assistant professor of surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons where he oversees the breast cancer surgery program at the Comprehensive Breast Center of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia, and work in close collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons and other breast cancer support staff.
Dr. Feldman is helping to pioneer the use of the ductoscope, a tiny endoscope inserted through the patient's nipple used for diagnosis, surveillance and treatment of cancer patients. His research using the device may help lead to a simple test for early diagnosis that could eventually be the equivalent of a Pap smear for breast cancer. Dr. Feldman anticipates that the intraductal approach will ultimately be used to treat early breast cancer as well as ablating the milk ducts to prevent cancer development for high-risk women as an alternative to mastectomy.
A leader in minimally invasive breast cancer surgery, Dr. Feldman was instrumental in developing the transmammary axillary lymph node evaluation (TANE) procedure, which requires only a single incision for lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy. He is also an expert in oncoplastic skin-sparing and nipple-preserving mastectomy.
His research interests are focused on preventing the disease through a better understanding of environmental toxins linked to breast cancer, including chlorinated pesticides, PCBs and PBDEs, and he is helping to investigate new biopharmaceutical treatments, including green tea extract and vitamin D.
Something you may have never heard about is that certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, plastics, cosmetics, etc can react with your hormones and make your body store excess abdominal fat. These harmful chemicals are known as xenoestrogens. Excess exposure to these can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women. Tune in Wednesday May-20 at 7:Pm for the Rest of the Story.
Neonicotinoids have become a household name in the world of gardening as the global decline of our pollinators continues to make headlines. As defined by the US Environmental Protection Agency, neonicotinoids are a class of insecticides with a common mode of action that affects the central nervous system of insects, causing paralysis and death. Mainly used as a seed treatment in agriculture, these systemic pesticides are also found in a myriad of gardening products such as plant treatments and pre-treated nursery plants.
In a recent press release by Friends of the Earth, Neonicotinoids have been the focus of a plea urging consumers to avoid purchasing “bee-friendly” plants from garden centers in the United States, namely Lowe’s and Home Depot which are two of the largest chains. However, what many people do not know is that bulbs are also treated with these chemicals.
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by Jeroen Koeman, President & Co-Founder of EcoTulips LLC., to discuss the use of systemic pesticides on tulips and other bulbs! Stay tuned!
