Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

We need to pray for all of our farmers. If it weren’t for our farmers, most of the world would starve. They’re getting lies from everyone except “Almighty God.” They deal a lot with chemical companies, mainly Monsanto Chemical Company. Monsanto tells our farmers that Agent Orange mixed with Round-up is the best thing since sliced bread & that it won’t hurt them or their families. If they handle closed barrels of this “Killer Chemical” it can cause them to get cancer, heart disease, diabetes & other diseases. If you’re a farmer and none of these diseases run in your immediate family and you’ve been diagnosed with Ischemic Heart Disease or Coronary Artery Disease and had to have stints put in, than more than likely it’s these chemicals you’re using that has caused your problems. There are lawsuits going on right now against Round-up. I’m a Vietnam Vet and I was exposed to “Agent Orange” and I think it was Dow Chemical at that time that assured the U.S. Army that it was the “Greatest Thing” since The Automobile was invented.  My family had never had Ischemic Heart Disease, but I’d seen so many of my friends who died from this that I went and had a check-up and found out I had the “widow maker” and should have already dropped dead years ago. My cardiologist said walking 5 miles a day had caused me to grow small by-passes around my 100% blockage of my LAD artery and that mainly the “Awesome God” that I served had saved my life. The chemical company said that they’d saved a lot of lives in Vietnam killing the foliage so we could see the enemy but I say to you that they killed more soldiers after they came home than what was KIA in the Vietnam War total. I was one of the “Blessed By God” who was saved from this. I give all the “Glory, Honor and Praise” to Almighty God through Jesus Christ that I’m still walking around today. These chemicals will also cause deformities and other diseases to your children that are born to you and your spouse after exposure. So, if you don’t believe me just google “Agent Orange” and Round-Up and The Vietnam War. You can check with organicconsmersassociation.com. Please pray that our farmers and their families don’t get any diseases from using these “bad, bad killer chemicals!” We love Our farmers & their families. God bless you all & Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.

Thank you.
