Protects Your Children – It is shocking but true, that our children are far more vulnerable to toxins than us adults. In fact, studies have shown that they are exposed to almost 4 times as many cancer causing pesticides in food than we ingest based on the types of food that children tend to eat. Due to their smaller size, developing bodies and growing brains, they are not able to deal with the onslaught of chemicals. More and more children have birth defects or are suffering from cancer, developmental delays, learning disabilities, central nervous system malfunctions, respiratory disorders and behavioural problems. The rise in incidence of these diseases parallels the increasing use of chemicals in our food and environment. Unfortunately the latency time between exposure and disease can be decades, Do you want your child to be a ticking time-bomb? You cannot afford to ignore the risks. Protect your children. By feeding them chemical free, healthy home-grown fruit and vegetables you can eliminate that risk.
