THINK TWICE BEFORE USING PESTICIDES – CANCER LINK
HOW DANGEROUS ARE PESTICIDES?
How dangerous are pesticides? Research is indicating they are more dangerous than previously thought. This includes links to the development of Parkinson’s disease and a doubling of the rate of brain cancer for children who live in homes where pesticides are sprayed. Now a new study shows another link – all the more reasons to go organic as to our food and home environment plus engage in as many potent detox therapies as possible – like far infrared saunas, fasts, colonics, and juice feasting.
PRECURSOR OF MULTIPE MYELOMA
A new National Cancer Institute study published in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology indicates conclusively that applying pesticides doubles the rate of a blood abnormality called MGUS disease or monoconal gammopathy of undetermined significance. The disorder is evidenced by an abnormal level of blood proteins. It requires life-long monitoring because it can lead to a most painful cancer of the bone marrow cells called multiple myeloma. The research involved a five year study of 678 individuals culled from over 50,000 farmers who had worked on fields that were pesticide sprayed.
