Food Production and Your Health

As the title of this states, this is about prepper politics, but there are topics that I feel are important for everyone to know about.  I am not one of those people that goes strictly organic or vegan or anything like that.  I do, however, believe that it is always healthier to eat naturally and organically when possible and growing your own when possible is a cheap way to get your food and it be healthier, not to mention tastier, than what you find in the grocery store.

Why you should grow your own food

Companies like Monsanto have been churning out genetically modified foods for quite a while.  The human body has been surviving on organic foods for thousands of years.  It has been just in the last 50 or so years that we’ve started “making” foods for higher production.  The problem is many of the food produced goes to waste or is not used for its intended purpose.  It gets put in other products as filler, fuel, or any other number of things.

GMOs have been linked to birth defects, cancer, diabetes and other diseases.

New to gardening?

Google gardening.  You’ll find a lot of really good info.  Don’t be discouraged if your first garden fails.  It takes practice and you may have a year or two of dead plants.  Keep at it and you’ll get good enough to provide yourself and your family with healthy, tasty food.  Keep in mind you don’t have to plant the same things as you find in the stores.  Look for a different variety of tomatoes or lettuce.  You’ll be happy you did.  Feel free to email me for advice if you like.

  1. How do you decide on the lay out of the garden? Is there a best way?

    • As far as designs, that’s up to the gardener. However, some plants do better next to certain others, like corn and beans near each other.
