Perhaps due to the heaviness and robust nature of industrial plant and factory work not much thought is given to just how much ensuing dust, debris and resins can affect the health and wellbeing of the human and animal consumer. Yes, somehow or another, animals in their way are consumers too. While domestic pets consume large quantities of processed foodstuffs every year, farm animals, predominantly cattle, sheep and poultry, are consuming even larger quantities of processed and manufactured grains deemed to be healthy for them.
And the perception is that these superfoods’ benefits will be passed on from the slaughtered animals to its human consumers. But in harsh reality, it is all hogwash of course. Indeed, industrial processing and packaging sites are going out of their way to keep invasive elements that pose harm to their consumers out of their production cycles. Ironically, they end up doing more harm than good. But new preventative measures such as non-toxic crop pest control have been introduced.
This should be interesting news to the organic farmer. He is one of those who are primarily concerned about the ongoing ramifications that chemicals bring to their production line. In an effort to be as ethical as possible, he is one of those farmers who long ago discarded the use of chemically enhanced fertilizers to boost his crops’ health and growth. He is also one of those who went out of his way to introduce natural feed to his animals.
But previously, he also had to eliminate pest control measures. He need not have done so because today’s pest control measures are indeed non-toxic, completely devoid of harmful chemicals. The organic materials being introduced to fumigation procedures are also turning out to be far more effective in warding off pests.
