one year old veges in supermarkets


Dear Editor,
Concerning the  excellent story  7/1/06 on year old veges and fruit in supermarkets  good on the Telegraph for giving such prominence to such an important story.

Another very dangerous aspect of the green harvesting, the products of which end up in our supermarkets and many vegetable stores is that the vegetable/fruit is not allowed to produce the natural enzymes which bring it to ripeness. It is these enzymes that are missing from modern diets, which are having a devastating effect on the health of us all. Most would be aware that such food (if you can call it that) is nutritionally deficient. In many cases you would be better off eating cardboard.

Eat your veges Chantelle, scoff down that fruit little Aaron… then you can have a nutritious tub of kiddie yoghurt, laced with sugar, preservatives and all sorts of goodies.

We are failing our kids in allowing government approved garbage to be put on the shelves and called bananas, tomatoes and spuds. In NSW there are at least 27,000 people known to have Chronic Fatigue, which is not just some Yuppie Flu…it is devastating and for some means years of being housebound, for some pain and other issues make this a truly dreadful illness.

There are many more people getting cancers these days and younger and it stands to reason that the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink is our first line of defence. For most, especially city dwellers, the air is polluted, the water is full of dangerous toxic and accumulative chemicals such as Chlorine and Fluoride and the so called fresh food in the shops turns out to be many times at least a year old.

Its enough to make us all sick. Very sick indeed. To go on supporting, by buying such rubbish is negligence towards our children.

Take the time if able to find out where you can buy fruit and vegetables, in season and locally produced and then transfer your loyalty to that supplier. We, the buyers do have the power, so lets use it before we become too weakened physically and mentally by eating empty dangerous garbage to use our power.
Yours sincerely,
Therese Mackay
