Poisons in our Food Supply
The most toxic chemical ever found is called Dioxin, it is part of the herbicide 2,4,5-T or Agent Orange, which was used to defoliate forests in the Vietnam War. More recently it has been used as a part of chicken feed, which naturally killed millions of chicks a year until it was discovered why they were dying. Not only are animals pumped with drugs and chemicals, their food is as well. Avoid injesting and feeding poisons! Eat meat sparingly and when you do, buy it from ranchers who raise their animals in clean, humane conditions.
The Poisoning of Michigan by Joyce Egginton was recently republished. The author explains why: "So people can better understand the importance of knowing about the chemicals that are being used in day-to-day products...The book, I hope, helps people to understand that they’re living in a world in which there are far too many toxic chemicals being used on an everyday basis for all kinds of things that are probably unnecessary."
