The main problem is that if we stop using that shit and go Organic we need to dramatically decrease the total food consumption. There is too much people to do that without killing 4-ish billion people or more through starving.
Before mechanized and industrialized farming world population was around one billion. Now we are more than 7 billions. So yeah, it's not easy to do.
Still worth trying though, but probably not gonna happen unless Aliens land and force this at gunpoint.
Thats all very well but a lot of the pesticides and herbicides we use are accumulative
As are most industrial food dyes. There is some turnover in what they use as a lot of dyes turns out to be carcinogenic or to damage people one way or another (after years that the products using it was consumed by population). Can even increase kid hyperactivity
At very least stay in our systems until the DNA damage has been done.
Just note that the only damage to DNA worth considering for the future generations is the one done to gametes (in the man's nuts and woman's ovary). Which are relatively well protected from such stuff even if it builds up.
All mutations in other cells can only make your life miserable through tumors and a bunch of other issues. As if this wasn't worth considering.
Although I would really like to see someone doing a half-decent study on the multi-generational dynamics of a lot of these chemicals. These kinds of studies are pretty damn rare.
Now what you say may be true for the indoor pesticides I don't know I have no figures although the ingredients now are not the natural pyrethrins originally used -they are synthesised.
Poison is poison. The molecule is the same and has the same dynamics regardless of where it comes from (still accumulates and still. The only thing that artificial stuff adds are different impurities (reagents used and possible byproducts), while natural stuff has other kinds of impurities (whatever was similar enough to the molecule extracted to be hard to separate).
The chemicals that are sprayed on farmland however are of real concern
Also all the medicines (and drugs) we take that end up in the waste water (medicines are removed from the body with pee, but the molecules that do the job aren't destroyed) and go screw the river ecosystems.
remember the days when they fed pigs and chickens and the like hormones (if not they are still doing that) how good was that for an idea
Afaik, US does not have decent regulations
banning that. EU banned most hormone use on meat animals. One of the reasons US meat cannot be exported to EU.
Well, maybe one of the reasons Americans are so high and strong is because they eat meat with growth hormones, that do work in humans as well.
