Many people want to make a difference today but aren`t sure how to go
about it. The good news is: little changes can add up to big improvements and here are
eight easy ways to make a big difference with just a little effort. In fact, if everyone
were doing them, it would change the whole equation.
Stop buying GMO foods and ingredients.
Leading GMO researcher, Jeffery Smith tells us if only five percent of the population abandoned GMO foods it might be enough to encourage many food manufacturers to drop them as ingredients. Widespread avoidance is one way to put those who are genetically manipulating our food right out of business, while saving our health and natural foods for generations to come.

Become vegetarian and largely, or entirely, vegan.
Aside from the fact that humans aren`t designed to digest animals and that most animals are improperly fed and drugged, farm animals are an enormous source of pollution. Raising farm animals produces more global emissions than all of the transportation worldwide. Rainforests are also regularly cleared for these animals headed for dinner plates.
Stop eating processed foods.
Processed foods create problems in the body, while nature`s unprocessed foods are healthy and healing. If taste is stopping you from dropping processed foods, it`s a sign that you need learn some more food preparation techniques. Healthy eating can be delicious.
Deeply detoxify your body.
When you are truly internally cleansed, disease is not common. When you are filthy inside, disease is the natural result. Unfortunately, you can see where most of the population stands on this.
As a bonus, as more of the population begins taking responsibility for their own internal cleanliness, it will end the funneling of billions of dollars to drug, chemotherapy, and radiation companies. It will also keep millions of profit dollars from being directed to government officials who, these days, are creating many pro-drug, anti-food, and anti-health laws.
Composting returns nutrients to the earth and is an easy backyard project. On a larger scale, compost needs to be utilized by farmers and added to their soils. Healthy soils have far fewer pest problems, so composting easily decreases the "need" for pesticides and helps keep chemicals off our foods. Since a large portion of "trash" is compostable, composting also dramatically decreases what`s sent to landfills.
Start a garden.
Having a few fruit trees, vegetable plants, and herbs growing in your yard brings you closer to your food supply. And with the entire neighborhood doing it, it`s a great way to create community by sharing the results. It`s also a much better use of water than growing grass.
Avoid plastic and plastic-wrapped foods.
Chemicals from plastic easily get lodged inside our bodies and they create many health problems. Since a great deal of plastic isn`t recycled, it ends up in our oceans creating the Great Atlantic and Pacific Garbage Patches.
Many animals will thank you too; these died because their stomachs contained so much plastic that there wasn`t any room for food. http://www.chrisjordan.com/current_...
Become as chemical-free as possible.
Buy organic whenever possible to limit your chemical exposure. Start reading the ingredients and buy what`s natural - based on the ingredients - not what the seller says on the front of the package. Use plants to clean your air, not chemical-based air fresheners. Use baking soda and white vinegar to clean your home, instead of store bought chemicals. There are hundreds of small changes you can easily make that add up to a lot less chemical contamination in your body and in the environment.
