Natural health expert and Mercola.com founder Dr. Joseph Mercola interviews Elizabeth Candelario on why the Demeter Biodynamic certification label is becoming the new platinum standard for high-quality, nutrient-dense food.
What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops.
It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects – and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms.
Paul does this by taking entomopathogenic Fungi (fungi that destroys insects) and morphs it so it does not produce spores. In turn, this actually attracts the insects who then eat and turn into fungi from the inside out.
Lee opens by revealing the government sanctioned poison pusher, Monsanto’s backdoor deals. Cancer causing pesticides like Roundup were widely used, despite science to prove otherwise, but the company made a concerted effort to get scientists, the media, and the government, on their side by filling their pockets or intimidating them. Monsanto also has unholy partnerships with universities which taints scientific research even further. But they did such a good job of hiding this that only few media organizations could actually see through the fine print. This and more on Redacted Tonight.

Modern agricultural practices have led to ever-increasing amounts of chemicals being used on our food, and whether we’re talking about pesticides, herbicides or fungicides, most have deleterious effects on health.
According to the latest report on pesticide residues in food by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), a mere 15 percent of all the food samples tested in 2015 were free from pesticide residues. In 2014, over 41 percent of samples had no detectable pesticide residues on them. 
That just goes to show how quickly our food is being poisoned. At that trajectory, we may eventually find out none of the non-organic food sold in 2016 or 2017 was pesticide-free.
Recent news has highlighted a number of problems associated with this out-of-control use of agricultural chemicals, starting with atrazine.
Putting more water in the pan or even steeping it overnight is the best way to flush out traces of the poison arsenic, they found.
The terrifying prospect that even routine operations will be impossible to perform has been raised by experts alarmed by the rise of drug-resistant genes.
