Theresa Marquez, Organic Valley: “Organic is the Solution for the Broken Food System.”

We simply aren’t doing enough. Organic is only five percent of the overall market.

The current food system is so dysfunctional it’s hurting our kids. One in 88 kids are going to be autistic—this has a lot to do with the chemicals in our environment and the 1.2 billion pesticides used.

“We need to be a cooperative group together. Let’s not create ‘them’ and ‘us’ between the management and the farmers.”

Waylon served as video host at Natural Products Expo West, the biggest “eco” foods and products gathering in the world, where small companies go to make it big, and huge companies go to gobble up promising newcomers, and groceries go to see who they want to feature on their selves. Among this grand coming together of “business” and “green,” Waylon admires a few entrepreneurs for walking their talk. Organic Valley is one such.

I suggest you look at these guys work on Autism. Andrew Goldsworthy, BSc, PhD & http://www.klinghardtacademy.com/Search.html?Sear… food is one small part of the equation. The Genes of our society have drifted so far form there pure source and the impurities in our food are one small part. EMF's the lovely things our phones and computers put out and the toxins in the air and the products which are manufactured for beds, clothing and in the city air, cause more Austistic issues than food. I believe what she says is correct and admire Organic Valley immensely. But the MOTHERS and FATHERS breeding these little ones need to clean there act up before choosing to procreate.. Even a so called healthy organic lifestyle may not be feeding the person what they need to mend there genes and reverse some or all of there genetic flaws. Kindly
