Is Your Food Grown With Human Poop?

Apparently it is ‘good business’ somewhere in the illusion, that growing food with human poop, is a good idea. 

It is more widely done than most would be able to imagine. 

Add to the matter… that using many fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, have completely knocked out the healthy bacteria, normally found in soil.  Food itself, grown this way, becomes “anti-bacterial’… topped up with an unhealthy dose of poo. 

Humans… it is worth noting the observation, that other creatures do not poop on their own food, and then live a healthy life.

Of course this practice is most evident in soul-less enterprises, generally larger corporations… but it is a great reminder, to get more in touch with what we are doing… and to align our actions with universal values.  

Something to chew on… our galactics say we are addicted to junk food… and they are not talking about fast food… they say the regular food that many think is healthy, is actually the junk food, that they would never eat… because this food does not have what the body needs, a person will crave more food.
