food + environment + pollution + pesticides

SCARIOS – farming practices in China are responsible for more pollution than factories! According to GREENPEACE, this has become one of China’s worst environmental crises. Greenpeace campaign director Sze Pangcheung. “China needs to step up the fight against the overuse of fertilisers and pesticides and promote ecological agriculture which has obvious advantages for human heath, the environment, and sustainable development of agriculture.”
WHAT CAN WE DO? Make sure that you buy organic and local food and support local farmers. Cheaper food from China has huge COSTS.

  1. Wow….this is quite shocking. I’d never expect farming practices to be this harmful (I knew about pesticides, but wow…)

  2. organic foods are the best for our health since they are free from dangerous chemicals and toxins ,*`

  3. Thanks Domingo. Here’s to hoping we can support and patronize the independent, organic farming operations and avoid the toxic factories!
