The Horrible Dangers of Fruit and Veggies...And Every Food Out There

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Stu! I have a confession to make. I think Gwyneth Paltrow is a good actress. Ironman, Shallow Hal, The Royal Tenenbaums... come on, those are good movies! But these days she seems more occupied with managing her health and lifestyle brand “Goop,” than acting.

Goop is concerned with all things that have to do with “wellness” --- whatever that means. Like this story for example: “What Fruits & Veggies Have the Most Pesticides? The Dirty Dozen is Here.” The “Dirty Dozen” list goes on to describe the foods with the most amounts of evil, no good, dastardly pesticides. Goop is off to a good start, but I’ve compiled my own list to give you a more thorough answer to what fruits and veggies have the most pesticides. It’s time to get anti-social.

According to Goop’s list, apples... delicious apples... are one of the most pesticide ravaged fruits you can eat. In fact, apples were found to have 47 pesticide residues by the USDA and the Pesticide Action Network --- which apparently is a thing. But those are just some of the pesticides. In actuality, apples have even more than that... like caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid and the much newer, more dangerous and downright racist neochlorogenic acid just to name a few. But those aren’t synthetic pesticides. Those are natural pesticides. And it’s not just apples... every single fruit and vegetable makes its own natural pesticides. That’s right. Even if you pay 300 percent more for those “organic” apples, you still get the pesticides that come with it.

The word pesticide gets a bad rap anyway. It just sounds icky—like homicide, suicide, and genocide. But what does “pesticide” really mean? A pesticide is any chemical, natural or human-made, that is designed to kill another organism; in this case, a pest. You know... something that ruins your food.

Let’s take a moment to remember something real quick. Produce has been around way longer than Whole Foods. I know it’s hard to believe. But plants have always naturally produced their own antibiotics to kill threatening insects and other organisms without any help from us. In the last few decades, we’ve learned to improve upon their process with synthetic chemicals, but let’s not forget who started this deadly biological war... plants. The pure, natural, healthy foods you love like cantaloupe, apricots, cauliflower and, yes, even kale are actually the ones to blame for the pesticides now infiltrating your body.

According to research by Dr. Bruce Ames, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California Berkeley --- such a conservative institution --- 99.99 percent of the pesticides consumed in the American diet are chemicals that plants produce to defend themselves. 99.99%. The amount of natural pesticides present in our food absolutely dwarfs the amount of man-made pesticides.

Dr. Ames estimated that “Americans eat about 1.5 grams of natural pesticides per person per day, which is about 10,000 times more than they eat of synthetic pesticide residues.” We eat about 5,000 to 10,000 different natural pesticides every single day. And just because these pesticides are “natural” doesn’t mean they are nice, wholesome, pesticides that promote “wellness.” Natural pesticides are way more harmful than fake pesticides. Many natural pesticides are known to cause cancer in rodent testing. In his study, Dr. Ames suggested that “it is probable that almost every fruit and vegetable in the supermarket contains natural plant pesticides that are rodent carcinogens. The levels of these rodent carcinogens are commonly thousands of times higher than the levels of synthetic pesticides." And don’t even think about cooking those fruit and vegetables. That just increases the carcinogens.

But I wouldn’t worry about it. Until today, you probably didn’t even know that you eat approximately 5,000-10,000 rat-cancer-causing natural pesticides every single day and you’re fine. Besides, trying to rid pesticides from your diet is futile and the definition of un-natural. And you don’t want to be “un-natural” do you, Goop? The only sure-fire way to eliminate pesticides from your diet would be to not eat --- anything. At all. Ever. I couldn’t do it --- but that’s probably what Gwyneth Paltrow does.

So, to review, all plants have natural pesticides on them. All of them. You consume way more natural pesticides than synthetic pesticides—and they are even more “harmful” than the fake stuff. And if apples are so riddled with nasty pesticides, then why did Gwyneth Paltrow name her daughter Apple? You don’t get to give advice about anything when you name your offspring Apple. Unless you’re an apple.

Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

COMING SATURDAY: The REAL Extremism Is NOT ‘Conservative’ | Benjamin Teitelbaum | Ep 102

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century." He writes about it in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent."
