Pesticides disappear from family’s urine samples after just two weeks of eating 100% organic. Watch the video the pesticide industry tried to stop you from seeing:
In 2015, an Swedish organic grocery chain partnered with the Swedish Environmental Research Institute in an experiment to see what would happen if they switched a family on a conventional diet to an all organic diet for two weeks.
Before the experiment began, urine samples revealed significant levels of insecticides, fungicides and plant growth regulators in each of the family member’s bodies.
After just two weeks of a 100-percent organic diet, the pesticides were hardly detectable:
Because the results were too damning, the Swedish Crop Protection Association, which represents nine pesticide companies, sued the grocery chain, demanding that they stop airing the advertisement, calling it “misleading” and “inaccurate.”
What was misleading about it? According to Forbes, it was simply that the video neglected to mention that organic farmers use pesticides too.
What’s misleading about the Forbes article, is that it neglects to mention that pesticides approved for organic agriculture are “the least toxic pesticides available” and that they are used far more sparingly.
