Health & Nutrition Strategies For Cancer Survivors & Everybody Else Nov 2017 -- by Warren Green

WHATS IN YOUR DIET?

I've repeatedly written about food as medicine, and why. The dilemma is,the United States toxic food chain. Poor quality food results in poor health outcomes. Cancer and heart disease, the major causes of death in the U.S. are on the rise, and it correlates with the rise of poor quality/fake food. The U.S. Government asserts that the only food that qualifies for certification meet stringent standards as stated in the CFR (code of federal regulations). Standards such as: free from harmful chemicals, they will not involve genetic engineering, or bio-solids (bio-solids are a euphemism for sewage sludge from waste-water treatment operations) . On that note, I believe that many of the outbreaks of salmonella, and e-coli contaminating produce are a result of bio-solids/sewage sludge. So unless products are labeled “USDA Certified Organic” our government won't and can't attest to it's wholesomeness. In addition, as part of the global food chain, and without the rescinded “Country of Origin” labeling law, consumers are at even greater risk.

For over a year, I've been promoting our region as “The Organic Capital of the World”. The region is considered local to some of the largest farmer's markets on the east coast. We have superior transportation logistics including nearby rail service, interstate accessibility, and worldwide shipping opportunities through our neighborhood major seaport. We are within a days drive to most of the major markets, and exposure to more than sixty million customers. And, we've got the longest growing season in the region, and talented farmers.

The region has significant health disparities, and the bulk of the evidence points to the diet. A poor diet is a public health matter. Fix the diet, fix the health. Organic small acre farming is the fastest growing cottage industry in the world. Clean food is in. We should have thousands of them. Our region can be and should be, a major supplier in the organic food chain. “The Organic Capital of the World”.

This initiative should be a slam dunk. We'll explore the obstacles and resistance in next months column.
