Chemicals/Pesticides, Are They The Norm We Have Become Desensitized To?

Chemicals/pesticides have become so commonplace we tend to be very accepting of their use as opposed to being very cautious about long term exposure.

So now we spray neighborhoods with chemicals/pesticides from the air because of the Zika virus threat or West Nile threat. What are the long term consequences of human contact with chemicals being sprayed from the air? Why on earth are we spraying pesticides from an airplane where air currents carry the chemicals over vast areas. I personally think it is absurd to blanket spray any neighborhood from the air without people in the area being fully aware of the consequences. I’m frosted that someone can fly over anyones house with the blessings of some bureaucrat and bomb them with chemicals without their knowledge unless they turn on the evening news for updates. I am totally on board when it comes to minimizing the threat from mosquitos, but shouldn’t we be a little more concentrated on specific targeted areas with on the ground and on the specific site where insects have tested positive instead of blanket spraying entire areas? What else is being sprayed in the atmosphere that some whacko deems necessary for some kind on insect control or indirectly, people control that I am unaware of. Wild thought eh?

I woke up this morning to the landscaping company at our condo complex spraying chemicals on the lawn and posting signs for pets to stay off the lawn for 24 hours. This is a scheduled occurrence which happens about four times a year. Although it may appear that the wind is not blowing, the very small droplets of the lawn spray are picked up by air currents and are deposited wherever the drift carries them. If these products are unhealthy for my pet, then they are also unhealthy for me.

My point is – did you ever take a minute to think about all the chemicles a person comes in contact with during a day. Think about the chemicals in cleaning products, soaps, deodorants, foods we consume, the air we breath, clothes we wear, makeup, perfumes, furniture, lotions, flooring products, any insecticide, chemicals from drugs and agriculture runoff in our water, paint or building materials, fuels, and on and on. Imagine for just a moment all the chemicals that a person is exposed to in just one day.

I’m not saying get rid of all chemicals, but in a world of modified genetics, and molecular modification of products shouldn’t we be very aware of what we allow ourselves to be exposed to on a daily basis? I’m not saying stay in a sterile room with filtered air, but minimizing exposure is a smart move to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Now go outside or stay inside and take a deep breath, do you know what you just inhaled? Exactly, you have no idea. Contrast that with the air from as little as 200 years ago. Don’t you think it is logical to be assured it wasn’t as polluted as todays air and environment? Sure life is much better today than it was back then, but at what expense to our longterm well being?

I believe what is spoken from the heart and soul speaks volumes about who we really are. When our heart and soul becomes overpowered by ego, anger, deception and insincerity, we often speak foolishly. If actions and words are not from our innermost being we are not who we want to be. I believe in speaking from the heart and soul, I've found most folks prefer genuine people. I encourage you to listen to your heart and soul, to speak of the things that have brought light and wisdom into your life. The topics I present are heartfelt and come from years of experience with life, research and common sense. I extend my sincere wishes for the best to come your way. Thank you God for uplifting traits within us all that brings out the best of who we are. I look forward to your comments.
