Glyphosate has been a staple for conventional farmers for nearly half a century, as they rely on it to eliminate unwanted weeds and pests from their crops. This chemical is applied to fields during intervals between plantings to minimize weed growth, and it is also utilized as a desiccant for grain and bean crops. The quantity of glyphosate sprayed by farmers in the United States alone is staggering, as it would be sufficient to blanket every single acre of farmland worldwide with almost half a pound of this chemical.
The majority of people are aware that our cell phones can expose us to unhealthy levels of radiation. In fact, when built up over time, exposure to radiation can cause various tumors, DNA damage and a weakened immune system. (study) DNA damage interferes with normal cell growth and protein production. In 2011 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), confirmed that cell phone radiation is a “possible human carcinogen.”

In 1945 , PTFE was trademarked as Teflon, and in 1960, the FDA approved its use in American cookware.
Today, non-stick pots and pans are used globally and, unfortunately, they are anything but healthy.
