Food Beware: The Organic French Revolution

Standard

Have you ever had the fantasy about living in France? Perhaps in a cute little village, eating off the land on a little French farm? Well, the thought, I must admit has crossed my mind on one of my nuttier days at work. After watching “Food Beware: The Organic French Revolution” that fantasy is gone. If you got Netflix it’s a freebie on there! This film was a real eye opener because I thought Americans were using a ton of pesticides on their crops and that Europeans probably were using less so due to stricter regulations and smarter farming practices. Well, I’ve come to learn that this is not so! Now, I wouldn’t mind moving to the little village in the film with the amazing mayor who changes things around!

 

I love what the nurse has to say and learned something new about life expectancy.  Watch this little four+ minute clip:

Quote from film: The war on cancer has not succeeded, so I think a focus on prevention no war on cancer in Europe, France or in the UK can succeed. He forgot the U.S. but the key word here is PREVENTION! Also by not supporting or buying chemically laden products!

 

This resonated with me, “We have to stop poisoning the earth, the air and our food with the false excuse that we are feeding mankind, when in fact we are starving mankind! This is why we need a total overhaul of the dominant agricultural model to conserve our health and the environment. I assert we can produce food in a different and sustainable way, healthy food in sufficient quantities with economic performance well superior to industrial methods, if we’d just stop replacing peasants with chemical molecules.” ~Quote from film
