Poison Water?

Written by Master Charles Cannon, Will Wilkinson


How often do we discover, as Robert Burns said, that “the best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray?” Researchers recently warned that some chemicals in pesticides, which end up in fruit and vegetables and are also used to purify tap water, may contribute to rising food allergies.

One article about this concluded with an expert’s recommendation that further research was needed.

How prophetic. In fact, that might make an ironic headstone for humanity, given the way we are going: “There was a need for further research.”

What a hurry we’ve been in to improve on nature! Chemical additives, splitting atoms, manipulating genes… all in the name of what? Progress? Going faster, making more, better?

Further research is needed, as in paying attention to what we’re already blessed with. Before we take action to improve things “out there,” why not pause to appreciate what’s already “in here?” We might just discover that here lies the source of our discontent and save ourselves the trouble of trying to do the impossible by demanding fulfillment from an “improved” environment.
