Implications for Environmentalists
Pesticides Poison Children:
The Hidden Dangers
Pesticides and toxins contribute to an increase in childhood diseases and disorders. They also deplete levels of Ca2+ATPase, a biomarker, leaving everyone vulnerable to serious illnesses.
Together, we need to advocate for fewer toxins in our environment. If you’re passionate about fighting for a world without chemicals, follow me on social media and join the revolution.

The enemies of Ca2+ ATPase
As guardians of the earth, it’s our job to protect the air, water, land, and food supply for ourselves and future generations.
We must appreciate that what we eat, drink, and breathe can impact Ca2+ATPase. Environmental toxins, pesticides, and other contaminants in our food and water can negatively affect this essential enzyme.
Without specific action, policies, education, and forging ties with governments, safeguarding the environment and our communities’ health is an unattainable mission.
We must work together to educate ourselves and reduce the need for unnecessary toxins in our environment. We want a world that’s free of toxins. The Calcium Connection arms you with the knowledge you need to advocate for our environment.
Exposure to environmental toxins
Sadly, you’re confronted with a toxic cocktail of chemicals daily. Each one could have a detrimental effect on Ca2+ ATPase, which creates a significant impact on your overall health.
Various common environmental toxins can reduce Ca2+ ATPase levels, including lead, mercury, titanium dioxide, fluoride, cadmium, and others.
Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of pesticide exposure because their smaller, undeveloped bodies can not take the toxins’ stress. They may even be exposed before they’re even born.
Children today are sicker than a generation ago. Cancers, autism, and other conditions have increased in the last 100 years. Seemingly low-level exposures to toxins can show a cascade of adverse consequences that last for generations.
I have witnessed first-hand the terrible harm that these vile toxins can wreak on a vulnerable young child.
Farmworkers are exposed to much higher levels of toxic chemicals that can cause cancer and other health problems than the average person. People who harvest our food are frequently from poorer socio-economic backgrounds.
Not only do they have to labor in pesticide-soaked fields, but their homes and children’s schools are next to these contaminated places. Families suffer continual exposure to dangerous chemical compounds in the air they breathe, the water they bathe in, and the dust that settles around them.
Scarcity of health insurance and limited access to medical care compound these chemical health hazards.
It isn’t just, it isn’t right, and it isn’t safe.
Reclaim the future of our food
We demand a future where the food we eat doesn’t endanger our health. My mission is to raise awareness of the damage that environmental toxins can do to vital Ca2+ ATPase levels because I’ve seen the potentially devastating consequences in my own family.
Act now for a brighter future
Here are some practical steps you can take to protect your family and the public’s health by reducing environmental toxins.
- Support small farmers
Small farmers tend to use ecological and sustainable farming methods, rather than industrial processes that threaten our health and contaminate the environment with chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Farmers in the community can maintain relationships with us, so we know where our food comes from. Bringing food straight from the farm to our table preserves ecological farming and food sovereignty.
Support your local farmers by shopping at farmers’ markets or direct from the farm wherever possible.
- Fight for local pesticide reform
Everyone has the power to drive change. Across the U.S., people are waking up to the dangerous effects of pesticides on the environment and human health. Push for stronger regulation of hazardous chemicals in your local area. People can monitor pesticides around their homes and use the evidence to reform policies.
The Pesticide Drift Exposure Response Act of 2004 relied almost entirely on one woman, Teresa DeAnda, who decided she wasn’t going to sit and take exposure to toxic chemicals. Each of us can have the same determination and will to make changes. Gathering substantiating data about the dangers of toxins is an essential part of this process.
Education is the cornerstone of driving change through knowledge. Educating farmers provides them with alternative strategies that are just as potent as chemicals and could save them time and money.
Parents need to understand how to protect their children from the health effects of pesticides. Children need to develop an awareness of their environment.
The power is in your hands to bring about change
In my book The Calcium Connection, I outline research that proves the danger of pesticides, the adverse health effects of pesticides in food, and the side effects of insecticides.
I give you the tools to help you protect your kids from toxins and pesticides. I talk about the valuable lessons I’ve learned through my own experience and the years of research I’ve undertaken.
The Calcium Connection will not only help you make better food choices but provides you with scientifically founded evidence you need to drive genuine changes in our world.
