So what's the problem? Well I'm perfectly happy living in my world of health as defined by the advertising agencies until I open up a book like this--
Then I start to panic. Not only are our foods all wrong, but my cutting boards, soap, and laminate flooring are poisoning us. All those factoids that my health-conscious friends have shared with me flood back into my head. Help!!!
"Get ahold of yourself, Saralyn!"
I need to do what I can to preserve the health of my family, and it is not up to the FDA, the food corporations, or the health gurus to define what is right and good for us. Navigating the sea of information out there is arduous. I don't know who to believe and I don't have the financial resources to do all of what anyone suggests, but I need to start somewhere.
I'm thankful for the calming affect of people like Monica who blogged about her Organic Food Dilemma. I'm grateful for the many books out there on organic gardening--something we're planning to do in abundance this year--and those on organic housekeeping (the one above is quite informative). And I'm resting in the fact that God is caring for us and already knows what will happen to us in the future, earth-friendly laundry detergent or not.
