It seems to me that we are inundated with information these days about all of the harmful substances in our lives. From the food that we eat, to the products that we use, it seems we can’t avoid this toxic overload. GMO foods, food dyes, pesticides, and chemicals are having a profound effect on our health and the health of our children. I am here to say that WE CAN DO BETTER. We can do better as a nation to regulate what is allowed to be put into our food, our vaccines, our water, our bodies. Our government allows many of these toxic substances when other, less progressive, countries ban them. As mothers, we can do better. We can choose whole, organic food to feed our families. We can take a stand towards GMO labeling. We can boycott products that are not Non-GMO-verified. We, as consumers, can do better. We can demand change with our wallets. We can start treating our bodies with the respect that they deserve. We can shift what companies sell by what we buy.
I believe that we are in the midst of a health crisis. We can not expect companies to look after our best interests. We can’t rely on the government to protect our children from diabetes, cancer, or autism. We, as consumers, as human beings, as mothers have to take a stand and take responsibility. I believe that we can do better. It starts today. It starts with you.
