Know Your Body – Agrotoxic Agents vs Organic Farming

  • Whatsapp

A health program that places an emphasis on the social dimensions of mental, physical, collective health, with an emphasis on prevention, along with recommendations and alternative solutions. Today we begin with the “Do it Yourself” segment, in which Camilo teaches us how to grow marigolds, which don’t require much care but do have many healthful properties. The Central Report deals with agrotoxic chemicals that threaten the health of workers and families living near soybean fields where poison is always in the air due to heavy crop spraying. By contrast, on a visit to an organic cornfield, we learn how it is possible to avoid poisoning by farming without pesticides. In the final “Personal Trainer” segment, we use a wide elastic band to work our glutes, abductor muscles, femoral biceps and quadriceps. teleSUR
