Pesticide means ‘kill’, and this negative energy is found in most non-organic fruit, vegetables, grains and oils. In April 2004, a comprehensive review of pesticides was produced by the Ontario College of Family Physicians highlighting the dangers of over exposure. (21) It found consistent links to several cancers, including brain, kidney, prostate and pancreatic, and leukaemia, as well as reproductive problems and neurological disorders. It made it clear that “children are particularly vulnerable” (22).

Meat contains pesticides, hormones and chemicals and naturally has a ‘death’ energy associated with it. When an animal gets killed, it knows its death is coming. It gets an adrenaline rush which then stays in the meat, and is then consumed. Children who eat poor-quality red meats can be aggressive and/or emotionally stressed. This is due to the fatty acid arachidonate, which promotes mental and physical inflammation, and therefore aggression. As this internal aggression-based stress accumulates, intoxicants become more attractive later in life for their (temporary) relaxing value (22).

Bread may also contain pesticides. A recent investigation by the governments pesticide residue committee found that 78% of wholemeal breads found in supermarkets contain the pesticide chlormequat (23). Wholemeal bread also has more fat than white bread, and the fats that are generally used are not easily recognized by the body. White bread is made with refined flour and works with the body just like sugar. It bypasses the digestive tract to give a boost of energy, but lacks the nutrients and ‘wholeness’ for proper absorption. Wheat allergies are also an ongoing problem. Many children react to the gluten in wheat and develop an allergy or intolerance later in life. Tiredness and irritability are the symptoms associated with this allergy.
