Hi!

I'M EARTH MOMMA

If you eat lots of junk foods, you’ll be sad and sick, but if you eat lots of Earth Fuel, you’ll be happy and healthy!

Every day we all make food choices that will affect our overall health—how we feel today, tomorrow, and in the future. Good nutrition is absolutely one of the most important aspects of living a happy, healthy life. Our diet can help us reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce our risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote our overall mental, emotional, and physical state of wellbeing.

Just make sure the food you’re eating is clean.

Sadly, there’s a problem…Earth Pollution!

Earth pollution, as a part of land degradation, has become a major health concern. It is mostly caused by industrial activities, the use of toxic agricultural fertilizers, pesticides or other alterations.

Research shows that children exposed to pesticides and other toxic chemicals, either in utero or during other critical periods, may have lower IQs, birth defects and developmental delays, and face higher risk of autism spectrum disorder, ADHD and cancer. Children are more vulnerable than adults to the harmful effects of chemicals mostly because everything they put their fingers on goes into their mouths!

Earth pollution means soil that is sick.

So how on does our soil become sick?

It’s simple! Our soil has become sick because of the use of toxic agricultural fertilizers, pesticides, and other harmful farming practices. Scientific studies now show that a majority of essential nutrients and minerals in our soil have been lost. These deficiencies may be one of the primary factors in many modern diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and obesity. And this is just the sad beginning. Our seeds are sick, too!

So how do junk foods become sick?

It is estimated that over 75 percent of all processed junk foods on supermarket shelves today contain GM ingredients. Then we add a little processed salt, sugar, and toxic chemical additives to those GM ingredients. And then, we become addicted!

Research showed that junk foods stimulate the reward system in the brain in much the same way as drugs like cocaine, which is why we’ve become an obese nation. In the U.S. alone, the percentage of children and adolescents affected by obesity has more than tripled since the 1970s. Data from 2015–2016 shows that nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people are now obese.



So how does marketing affect what our children eat?

There is hope!

While advertising, serving, and promoting unhealthy foods continues to occur in schools across the U.S., there is hope! A recent study in Pediatrics suggests that marketing tactics, often blamed for popularizing nutritionally-poor foods, can also lead kids to select vegetables at lunchtime. They discovered that if the cafeteria line that included a salad bar had a TV monitor and was decorated with banners showing cartoon characters gaining “superhuman” powers by eating the salad-bar veggies, the kids ate three times more veggies than usual!

The solution to earth pollution is . . .

Ecotarian Kids!
