Organic Farming - https://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~lhom/organictext.html or http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~lhom/organics.doc -
"
What does organic mean? It means that these pesticides, if used, must be derived from natural sources, not synthetically manufactured. Also, these pesticides must be applied using equipment that has not been used to apply any synthetic materials for the past 3 years, and the land being planted cannot have been treated with synthetic materials for that period either." @ http://www.37c.org/lhom/food/food.html
(CAUTION: Current law allows a minimal unrepeatable % of synthetic additives.)
 
Recognition & Management of Pesticide Poisonings manual by US EPA, Washington DC 20460  Shows manifestations of various poisons.  For instance, zinc phosphide &/or arsenic ingestation results in garlic breath, cyanide ingestation results in almond breath, & carbon disulfide ingestation results in cabbage breath.  Some herbicide treatments discourage the intake of aspirin or milk (any fat intake). If the poisoning is through the skin, hose down or shower the victim. After medical intervention, a 30 day intake of water, vitamins & activated charcoal may help.

https://tierneylab.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/06/06/synthetic-v-natural-pesticides/comment-page-2/?_r=0 - 6/6/2007 - Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology - "Dr. Ames was one of the early heroes of environmentalism. He invented the widely
used Ames Test, which is a quick way to screen for potential carcinogens by seeing if a chemical causes mutations in bacteria. After he discovered that Tris, a flame-retardant in children’s pajamas, caused mutations in the Ames Test,
he helped environmentalists 3 decades ago in their successful campaign to ban Tris, one of the early victories against synthetic chemicals.  But Dr. Ames began rethinking this war against synthetic chemicals after thousands of chemicals had been subjected to his test. He noticed that plenty of natural chemicals flunked the Ames test. He & Dr. Gold took a systematic look at the chemicals that had been tested on rodents. They found that about half of natural chemicals tested positive for carcinogencity, the same proportion as the synthetic chemicals. Fruits, vegetables, herbs & spices contained their own pesticides that caused cancer in rodents.  The toxins were found in apples, bananas, beets, Brussel sprouts, collard greens, grapes, melons, oranges, parsley, peaches...
Then Dr. Ames and Dr. Gold estimated the prevalence of these natural pesticides in the typical diet. In a paper published in 2000 in Mutation Research, they conclude:
About 99.9% of the chemicals humans ingest are natural. The amounts of synthetic pesticide residues in plant food are insignificant compared to the amount of natural pesticides produced by plants themselves. Of all dietary pesticides that humans eat, 99.99% are natural: they are chemicals produced by plants to defend themselves against fungi, insects, & other animal predators
.
[However, their conclusion was based on cancer causing chemicals in rats. 
They neglected to take into consideration the effect of biologically identical, naturally rejectable issues, as compared to synthetic foreign invaders that could later mutate, mutilate the body, & never be naturally dealt with by the body, even generations later.]"

Egg Whites - http://www.snopes.com/medical/homecure/eggwhite.asp#PBumEwKGleyF7KCk.99 
"A young man sprinkling his lawn & bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover & lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed & engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming. His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs, yelling: 'bring me some eggs.' She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks. The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites on the young man's face.
When the ambulance arrived & the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge. They congratulated her & said: 'You have saved his face.' By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby's skin.
Healing Miracle for burns:  Keep in mind this treatment of burns which is (has been) included in teaching beginner fireman this method. First aid consists to spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced & stops burning the layers of skin. Then, spread egg whites on the affected area."

Monsanto - https://vocal.media/feast/food-brands-owned-by-monsanto?fbclid=IwAR0sKNGt0PlYOdVFL9pRrHOQbZNvouFtoL1OoRz8cDtlR9IghQSNiVaJ5Xw  - "One test showed that every single chip within a bag of Frito-Lay chips tested positive for not only GMOs, but also for weed killer.
Roundup is known to be the most common weed killing solution in the United States. It comes as no surprise, then, to hear that Roundup is produced & distributed by none other than Monsanto Company. A corporation that prides itself as an 'agricultural company' contaminates 1 of the world’s largest snack food distributors?"

Monsanto - https://dissidentvoice.org/2017/12/pesticide-suicide/ - "According to Dr. Seneff, Monsanto has steadfastly claimed that Roundup is harmless to animals & humans because the mechanism of action it uses (which allows it to kill weeds), called the shikimate pathway, is absent in all animals. However, the shikimate pathway is present in bacteria. That’s the key to understanding how it causes such widespread systemic harm in both humans & animals. The bacteria in your body outnumber your cells by 10-1.
For every cell in your body, you have 10 microbes of various kinds.  All of them have the shikimate pathway, so they will all respond to the presence of glyphosate.  Glyphosate causes extreme disruption of the microbe’s function and life cycle & glyphosate preferentially (adversely) affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow and take over. At that point, your body also has to contend with the toxins produced by the pathogens.
Once the chronic inflammation sets in, you’re well on your way toward chronic & potentially debilitating disease. 
According to The Detox Project: Anresco Laboratories has found glyphosate in a range of U.S. food products, & the chemical also tested positive in urine, conducted by the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), using validated LC-MS/MS method. 
Here’s the problem, as stated by The Detox Project:  The cultivation of Roundup Ready GMOs has considerably increased food contamination by glyphosate. Roundup Ready plants do not degrade glyphosate but tolerate it, so they accumulate Roundup residues during their growth. As a consequence, glyphosate has among the highest maximum residue limits for pesticides with up to 500,000 parts per billion authorized in some GM feed. A recent study on 10 batches of GM soybeans from Iowa found glyphosate at an average concentration of 11,900 ppb (maximum of 20,100 ppb). According to Monsanto, residues levels of up to 5,600 ppb in GM soy represent ‘extreme levels. 
In the main, this article has dealt with one chemical; i.e., glyphosate, at the expense of further investigation of the entire complex of chemicals. That’s an encyclopedic task over decades just to get to the bottom of whether pesticide suicide is truly a reality. Therein lies the horrifying, frightening aspect of a world ubiquitously covered with chemicals. By the time you know for sure, it’s late. 
Meanwhile, a Rand Corporation study states that 60% of Americans have 1 & 40% have multiple chronic conditions: Nearly 150 million Americans are living with at least 1 chronic condition; around 100 million of them have more than 1. Nearly 30 million are living, day in & day out, with 5 chronic conditions or more.9   A colossal crisis...Yes!

Neem oil spray - http://www.discoverneem.com/neem-oil-insecticide.html - "Beneficial insects (that do NOT chew the plant) are most active during the day. The best time to spray neem insecticide is very early in the morning, so the spray can dry before the good insects become active. Also a good time is the late afternoon or evening.
Once the spray has dried it does not harm your bees, ladybugs, lacewings, predatory mites & wasps etc."
 
Price, Weston - http://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/genetically-engineered-foods-may-be-far-more-harmful-than-we-thought/ - "Bt-toxin kills insects by creating small holes (pores) in the cell walls of their digestive tracts, which in turn allow bacteria & other substances to pass through. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which labels Bt corn and Bt cotton plants as registered pesticides, insists that Bt-toxin will have absolutely no influence on human or mammalian cells. But research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology25 in 2012 proves otherwise.
Researchers 'documented that modified Bt toxins [from GM plants] are not inert on human cells, but can exert toxicity.' In high concentrations (generally higher than that produced in average Bt corn), Bt-toxin disrupts the membrane in just 24, causing certain fluids to leak through the cell walls. The authors specifically note, 'This may be due to pore formation like in insect cells.' Thus, Bt-toxin may indeed create small holes in our intestines.
Garry Gordon, MD, warns, 'If [Bt-toxin] is causing an increased propensity for our intestine to become permeable or leaky and for foods to be presented to our bloodstream in a premature fashion, the havoc that it will cause will be across the entire spectrum of disease, from premature aging and Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s to autism to cancer to asthma.'  The EPA had also claimed that Bt-toxin was destroyed during digestion in humans.
But a 2011 Canadian study conducted at Sherbrooke Hospital discovered that 93% of the pregnant women they tested had Bt-toxin in their blood. So too did 80% of their unborn fetuses.26 Thus, not only was the toxin not fully broken down in the stomach, a toxin is circulating within our blood stream that might further damage the cell walls it encounters. In fetuses, which don’t have developed blood-brain barriers, this might result in damage to brain cells."

Séralini, Gilles-Eric - Why glyphosate is not the issue with Roundup - 30 yr study -
http://www.gmoseralini.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Seralini-career-JBPC_2015.pdf - "
Roundup & other glyphosate-based herbicides are the most widely used pesticides in the world; their residues are among the main pollutants in surface waters. Their use has increased through the spraying of 80% of edible agricultural GMOs, which also contain high levels of their residues. They are composed of glyphosate (35–40% in general) & adjuvants that are around 1,000 times more toxic than glyphosate alone, & are also endocrine disruptors below toxic thresholds. All endocrine disruptors (ED) are also nervous system disruptors (ND), because they act as “spam” for cell–cell communication, in the sense that they are spurious messages (or molecules) sent to a group of organisms or cells, impeding & slowing down, & in some cases accelerating, the physiological communication system.  Therefore, they should be called ENDs (endocrine & nervous system disruptors)."

Exposure to pesticides can cause a wide range of psychiatric symptoms including agitation, paranoia, psychosis, dementia…& even death...

    Many environmental items contain more than 1 category of neurotoxin.  If you’ve had your floors finished with polyurethane, then you’ve been exposed to both solvents & carbamates, a pesticide.  Using a poorly ventilated gas stove can expose you to methane  (a solvent) & carbon monoxide. Molds emit a wide array of solvents (benzene, hexane, etc.) as well as trichothecenes (an epoxide.)   Many pesticides also contain  solvents.  Parkinsons Disease can be caused by exposure to pesticides , solvents, & some medications.  Bipolar Disorder & schizophrenia can be caused by exposure to solvents.  Depression has been linked to pesticides. The more exposures to neurotoxins, the greater the risk of developing environmentally-triggered mental illness.
    Are Pesticides Making You Sick? - by asprousemd on 8/8/2013 · Unwanted pests such as flies, mosquitoes, roaches, termites, fire ants, bed bugs and lice are a nuisance.  However, care must be taken to get rid of them without causing harm to yourself.  Traditional pesticides include a wide variety of chemical compounds that can be found in buildings including your home, workplace, schools, & stores as … Continue reading @ https://doctorsprouse.wordpress.com/category/articles-by-dr-sprouse/
    With the introduction of genetically modified foods, pesticides are now inserted into the seeds of plants & labeling is not yet mandated.  So you could be eating pesticides in your corn, tomatoes, & other vegetables without even knowing it.
    Pesticide exposure is associated with a wide variety of human illnesses including  Parkinson’s Disease, depression, breast cancer, prostate cancer, asthma/wheezing, respiratory failure, headache, fatigue, cardiac dysrhythmias, ringing in the ears, stupor, nausea, vomiting, cognitive defects, blurred vision, muscle twitching, aplastic anemia, irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, birth defects, mental agitation, withdrawal from reality, paranoia, psychosis, dementia, & death.  Integrated Pesticide Management (IPM) is an effective, broad-based approach that uses information about the life cycle of pests & their interaction with the environment to develop an environmentally-sensitive system of pest management.  IPM preferably uses natural products rather than synthetic ones, with the least possible hazard to people, property, & environment.  Tests are available to measure pesticides in urine, breast milk, & other body fluids.  To locate a physician trained in pesticide diagnosis & treatment contact

"Rachel Carson...in the early 1960s exposed the dangers of Monsanto’s DDT pesticide, which the medical community then promoted as prophylactic against body lice and malaria. Government officials & medical professionals led by the American Medical Association joined Monsanto & other chemical manufacturers, attacking Carson viciously.
Trade journals and the popular media disparaged her as a 'hysterical woman.' Industry talking points derided Carson as a 'spinster,' the contemporary euphemism for lesbian, & for being unscientific. Vicious criticisms of her book appeared in editorial pages in (magazines) Time, Life, Newsweek, the Saturday Evening Post, US News and World Report, & even Sports Illustrated. I am immensely proud that my uncle, President John F. Kennedy, played a critical role in vindicating Carson. In 1962, he defied his own USDA, a captive agency in league with Monsanto, and appointed a panel of independent scientists who validated every material assertion in Carson’s book

Permalink to The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it’s not the gluten) - "According to Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT who has studied the issue in depth...desiccating non-organic wheat crops with glyphosate just before harvest came into vogue late in the 1990’s with the result that most of the non-organic wheat in the United States is now contaminated with it. Seneff explains that when you expose wheat to a toxic chemical like glyphosate, it actually releases more seeds resulting in a slightly greater yield: 'It ‘goes to seed’ as it dies. At its last gasp, it releases the seed' says Dr. Seneff."

It is therefore possible that by manipulating the types of intestinal bacteria, we can also affect cytokine production and change mood...Biological Psychiatry, showed that probiotics may offer an alternative treatment option for depression & other psychiatric conditions.

How to detox self http://naturalsociety.com/how-to-detox-pesticides-body-7-ways/ - 7 tips on how to detox pesticides.
1. Milk Thistle
- This plant is a member of the daisy family and has a long history of healing.
It is primarily seen as a liver cure-all & is also said to be a great way to detox from toxic chemical exposure.
(Take as a herb/vitamin supplement.)

2. Sauna or Bath
- Sweating is just one of the many great methods for detoxing your body. Encourage this natural elimination with the use of detox (Epsom salt/magnesium) baths & saunas. Something else to note, consuming niacin, or vitamin B3, with sweating will increase the process of eliminating toxins. Your skin will flush and you may experience some discomfort, but the niacin is, over several days & increased dosages, breaking fat cells. Guess what’s in these cells? Toxins. Additionally, try this simple detox bath recipe.
3. Fermented Foods
- By ensuring your gut bacteria is in good health, your body is better able to combat invaders like the toxic pesticide chemicals. (Pickles, pickled beets, sour-croute, yogurt, )
4. Increase Fiber
- The more fiber you eat, the faster things move through your body.
Good sources of natural fiber (i.e. organic fruits & vegetables) don’t only take the food waste with them.
Fiber helps clean the toxins from your body as well. (bran)

5. Burdock Root
- This natural healer helps flush toxins through urination & perspiration. Use it in a tea or tincture for optimal results.  (Available as a herb/vitamin supplement.)
6. Sarsaparilla
- Find sarsaparilla in most well-stocked health food stores where it is often sold as a tea.
This is a well-known blood purifier. (Excellent for anti-virus & bacteria.  Available as a tea or supplement.)

7. Get Fit
- Exercise isn’t only good for weight management. Working out encourages all of your body systems to function more effectively. By increasing blood flow throughout the body, you are also helping it to eliminate unwanted toxins.  Keeping healthy is much more than just eating the right foods (especially organic + non GMO) —it’s eliminating the toxins we come in contact with on a daily basis whenever possible, & helping the body cope with some of the inevitable exposure. By SLOWLY detoxifying the body on a regular and consistent basis, you can help prevent some of the many side effects of these dangerous pesticides that have become so prevalent in our modern world.  Additional Sources: Dr. Mercola - Read more: http://naturalsociety.com/how-to-detox-pesticides-body-7-ways/#ixzz5eMEWrzSv -  NaturalSociety on Facebook - (CONSIDER: NOT using commercial herbicides & insecticides.

It has become the #1 selling herbicide worldwide, due to the increase in the planting of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready Crops, which are genetically engineered to withstand multiple applications of the weed killer during the growth cycle. It is also used in residential gardens & neighborhood parks around the world. For 20+ years Monsanto has claimed that this proprietary weed killer is safe. But a host of recent studies have linked Roundup and glyphosate to an alarming number of diseases threatening animal & human health; including obesity, infertility, cancer, celiac disease, gluten intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, autism & Alzheimer’s Disease. We now understand that it is inside our bodies. More importantly, it is entering the bodies of our newborn children through breast milk."

Glyphosate Exposure During Pregnancy Causes Hormonal Changes in Baby Girls • Children's Health Defense
"A new peer-reviewed pilot study on women exposed to glyphosate during pregnancyn (shows) increased (fetus harm)...

Glyphosate effects a child's developing endocrine & reproductive systems

Exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides in rats was also associated with androgen-like effects, including a statistically significant increase of anogenital distance (AGD) in males & females, delay of 1st estrous & increased testosterone in females...
Anogenital distance, the distance between the anus & the genitals, is a sensitive marker of prenatal endocrine disruption affecting the genital tract development. Exposure to different chemicals including pesticides has been linked previously to altered AGDs & other endocrine effects...
There have also been a number of other studies that have recently revealed the damage being caused by glyphosate on reproductive health.  Glyphosate is the most used herbicide in human history."

Pesticides - http://www.whale.to/w/op.html "Dr Routledge commented: 'At least a 3rd of all (British) ME cases are pesticide related.  Add to that cases of immune deficiency, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, food and chemical allergies, the 7,000 or so farmers affected by organo-phosphates in sheep dip. I think the half million figure is conservative. 
Even hay fever may be triggered by pesticide bound pollen.'"
