Diabetes UK figures show that diabetes has increased by 60% in the last ten years and that the costs of treating diabetes will continue to spiral out of control and threaten to bankrupt the NHS in the UK. Diabetes UK warned that more must be done to highlight the importance of prevention.
Dementia UK reports that dementia is to increase by 40% in the next 12 years and a whopping 156% in the next 38 years (think of our children born today).
Cancer research UK figures show that for every two children born today, one will get cancer in their lifetime.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) confirms that cancer will increase by 70% in the next twenty years. The report also states that cancer globally has increased from 12.7 million to 14.1 million in the 4 years between 2008 and 2012.
There were 8.2 million deaths from cancer in 2012, which means that a staggering figure of well over 40 million people have died from cancer in the last 5 years, and that figure is increasing daily. The WHO report says that it is impossible to think that we can treat our way out of cancer and that the focus must now be on preventing new diseases.
But all of this is a shocking legacy we are leaving our children and our children’s children. Their chances are not good.
The reality of this situation is that deaths from cancer alone over the last 5 years are equivalent to the following populations being completely wiped out:
- The island of Ireland
- New York
The reality is shocking beyond belief when extrapolated for the next 5 or 10 years.
We are awash with studies that show most cancers can be prevented.
Our planet has become a soup bowl of toxic chemicals.
- The seas – a recent survey shows that there is enough plastic in the Pacific Ocean to fill the land mass of Europe. Plastics that leach toxins such as BPAs and that are ingested by all forms of marine life and ultimately to the plates of our children.
- The land – Our foods are being sprayed with toxic chemicals that are linked to diseases such as cancer. These chemicals then destroy the nutrients in our soil. 90% of our nutrition comes from our soil – we cannot survive without it. Chemicals wash from the soil into our streams, lakes and ultimately our water supply. These are horrific acts against humanity and our planet.
It is unrealistic to expect healthy beings to live off an unhealthy planet and unless we eliminate the toxicity from our food, water and our air we will never eliminate cancer and other related diseases.
Our organic projects are based on the United Nation studies:
- IAASTD Report: This report is the largest scientific study in human history from 400 scientists in 58 countries.
- UN Environment Study 2013 “Wake Up Before it is too late” by 60 scientists collaborating under the umbrella of the UN.
Both of these studies showed compelling evidence that genetically modified organisms (GMOs), farming chemicals such as glyphosphate and the large mono-culture farming practices disastrous for our planet and for life.
The UN studies state that the way to feed the world is through sustainable organic farming which will feed humanity with clean nutritional foods and also support our planet by reducing greenhouse gases.
