We are preparing for growing season in Northeast North Carolina. My readers are aware of my mantra “let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food”. The next big cancer focus will be immunotherapy. As I mentioned in an earlier article, the immune system is the key to all quality of life health matters, and quality nutrients are the key to a healthy immune system. In our region, produce such as broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and muscadine grapes are major crops, and major cancer fighters, that should be primary components in your cancer survivor diet. Preferably organic quality. In last months article I discussed my advocacy of Northeast North Carolina being the “Organic Produce Capital of the World”. The feedback was very positive. So, let’s explore the possibilities. Organic commodities are going to be the most coveted products in the world. Northeast North Carolina has the longest growing season and less than a day’s drive to 50 million consumers, within ninety minutes from one of the largest seaports in the country, and connected by excellent state and federal highways. We have the best climate, best soil and best farmers in the country. The stars and demographics are aligned for this region to be a major player in the demand for our fresh organic produce. While writing this article I happened across a news conference with Presidents Castro and Obama promoting commerce, particularly agriculture between the two country’s. Virginia Governor Mcauliffe offered that Cuba has 11,000,000 consumers and a seaport as large as Norfolk’s. Hopefully, our local “powers that be”,will recognize the opportunity to make Northeast North Carolina the “Organic Capital of the World”.

It appears that the EPA expanded their administrative turf by seeding their accountability to the States. I discovered the State violation information for public water systems throughout the country. including whether the systems have: Failed to follow established monitoring and reporting schedules. Failed to comply with mandated treatment techniques. Violated any Maximum Containment Levels (MCLS). And, failure to communicate required information to their customers. Seems to me that the state of Michigan was negligent. However, they had to be generating data because federal regulations required it. What happened to the that data? It is reported that there are over 2,000 public water systems were tested with lead content exceeding the 15parts per billion. This is an incredible conundrum for this administration and the next one. No one has even approached the medical ramifications for this. The lead poisoning will last a lifetime. Am I to understand that those infected will have their medical issue taken care of? And what about the folks receiving low doses of lead through commercial food processing in those areas? I’ll connect the dots next time. Remember, you are what you eat. Warren Green can be reached at Business Home Auto Boat Renters Workers Comp.
