Can eating responsibly prevent nuke-caused
cancers and toxic
auto-immune diseases? No! But every day eat
only organic food or
locally grown CSA
farm-fresh, if possible. Our immune system
will have its best chance at fending-off the
caused by the ionizing
radiation from radionuclide dust and carbon
pollution - both bankster consumerism created!
Every Morning, Wow! What a
Breakfast! All organic: Local
lemons, baby spinach, blue corn
tortilla chips; toasted
salsa made with mesquite-roasted
jalapeņos, onion and with fresh-sliced
tomato and mushrooms; curry
