365 Ways #188–The bottom line(s) Posted on October 12, 2010, 0 Comments
#188--The practice of monocropping is destroying our top soil, making land unsuitable for future growth. Additionally, healthy top soil holds on to water rather than letting it run off which futher contributes to the problem of erosion. It’s also chemical intensive, killing the micro organisms necessary for the fertility of the surrounding environment. In fact, statistics show that every 100 years the average conventional farmer makes his land unsuitable for cultivation. What can you do? Minimize or eliminate, even if only for a few days/weeks/months, your consumption of the worse offenders: corn, wheat, and soy. Not only will you affect the bottom line of Big Agri Business; but by decreasing the role these nutritionally deficient foods have in your diet, the lines marking your bottom will benefit, too.
