California, Walmart, Canada discussed on My Seven Chakras
So those are the definitions that if if you're I were a farmer, and we want to get certified as organic those what that's what we need to get those are the criteria that we need to meet and right away. That would happen is. And this was started in California. It was the first state that actually introduce organic foods and the certification would come from supplying seven years of soil samples, so we'd have to supply seven years of soil samples to show that your soil is clean. It doesn't have those things that I just named the simple request asides fertilizer herbicides sewage sludge based fertilizers no GMO seeds and no irradiation. And if I can show that for seven years in a row, then I can go through this process, and I can get certified organic. So there's the California certified organic federation. I think it is he COO F. And now there's a UC USDA certification as well. I'm sure you guys in Canada have your own certification system, which I would trust for the most part if if something is labelled as organic I would be willing to trust that if it's coming from the US or Canada, not so sure if it's, you know, coming from China or some other place as but. Do you have to go to hold food and spend your whole paycheck there? No. Do you guys have whole foods in Vancouver? Oh, yeah. We do. And in fact, the fact that now, holy foods is part of Amazon, we might be able to are a whole foods online, which makes it good or bad. I don't know. Working really hard to their credit is really working hard to make organic foods accessible to read to everyone. But the number one purveyor of organic food is not hold foods WalMart because the people that shop at WalMart, which would be, you know, not the same demographic that shops at wholefoods is becoming aware and they're asking for organic foods. But even so you don't have to go and buy everything organic you can look at something called the dirty dozen Rankin. I mentioned that in the books of the dirty dozen are the top culprits as being most contaminated with these pesticides, herbicides and things like apples seemed to be on the top of that list. Every year they put that list out every year. So things like apples, strawberries, blueberries is all greens, collard greens. Spinach. Cucumber celery, peaches, pears plums are some. The examples of the things that would be the dirty dozen. They happen to be my favorite things to eat than they are all in the dirty dozen. So those we should try to buy organic when we can on the other end of the spectrum. They have what we call the clean fifteen and all this is in the books. So you don't need to be writing this down, but the clean fifteen or things. Like bananas, avocado pineapple. I think papaya is in their onion, broccoli, those are relatively clean. So you don't need to get your money on buying those organics, if you can just get the dirty dozen.
