Renewable Farming

Zach Bush, MD: Why today’s epidemic of chronic diseases starts on the farm

Agribusiness and medical magnates will bristle at this new video series, which links rising rates of serious chronic diseases in America to rising rates of toxic farm chemical residues in our food.

February 14, 2019 — It’s not exactly a Valentine’s Day message. But someone needed to do it. Dr. Bush and his scientific sources trace rising rates of serious diseases in America to the toxic origins which are causing them: autism, digestive distress, cancer, heart disease and others. In 1965, only 4% of Americans had a chronic disease. Today, 46% of our children have a chronic disease.

Several excellent physicians dating back to Hippocrates have long said. “Food is Your Best Medicine.” But not today’s typical supermarket food. 

We’re eager to follow through on where this new, well-documented video series will lead.  Here’s the release announcement, from the website

“This film series explores scientific findings from RESTORE founder and CEO, Dr. Zach Bush, MD, and soil health expert Dr. Allen Williams. They identify the root cause of the current chronic disease epidemic and its connection to chemically-dependent agricultural practices. Each short film in our series highlights a farming family that is paving a path to a new future for modern farming and food independence: Regenerative Agriculture.

“This inaugural film showcases the trials, learnings and victories of the four-generation Breitkreutz family from Stoney Creek Farm transitioning from conventional farming to regenerative agriculture in Redwood Falls, Minnesota.

“Using conventional methods, they saw their soils degrade and their input costs rise every year. Transitioning to regenerative practices has helped their row cropping operation and significantly reduced the input costs for cattle. This film tells the story of how they did it.
