Everything is Backwards

This isn't going to be an easy road

It’s crazy, but it costs more to buy food without pesticides.

Food originally came without strings attached.  There was no team of lobbyists behind the humble carrot; just an unofficial spokesperson knowns as “Buggs,” who seemed to spend all his screen time chewing on a carrot.  Today we have to spend money to un-do some of the things that have been done to corrupt food on a global scale and these all seem very wrong when you consider them.

It costs money to spray crops, but it costs even more to buy food that isn’t dripping with poison.  Food yields seed, which grows more food (it’s been that way forever), but that’s also not true anymore so you’ll get sued if you plant those seeds.  The foods bred in the lab are starting to have their own pesticides built-in so it’ll be even harder to avoid chemicals.

Even health insurance costs more, regardless of the fact that the deductibles are so high you will probably feel uninsured unless your health collapses entirely.

It’s a broken world and it’s going to cost more to invest in your health, but the alternative is darker so consider giving “food” a try, rather than consuming food-like products, or patented organisms that were invented using genetic research and cloning of targeted DNA strands to form specific traits.
