156 Health Hazards of Chemical Fertilizer

Almost all agricultural or plantation activities in the world must perform fertilization. Impact of this fertilization activities are expected to increase the result of agricultural or plantation. So that is able to provide optimal results and provide benefits in terms of economy. However, do we have to sacrifice our health just for economic benefits by using chemical fertilizer? Fertilizer is a substance, whether it sistetis or organic, which is added to the soil to increase the supply of essential nutrients that promote plant growth and vegetation on the ground. Although intended to provide benefits to humans, but the effects of fertilization on soil need to be considered. We should know that the use of chemical fertilizers can cause impacts that would damage the fertility of the soil itself, and not making it lush.



If we look carefully various agricultural products sold in the market, it turns out in fact many of them are contaminated with chemical fertilizers. Whereas chemical fertilizer is actually very harmful for our health. As an example of the fruits that have been given contaminated with preservatives and chemicals would be more durable when compared with pristine fruit. And if the natural fruit, maybe in a few days already rotting. Just imagine if the fruit we eat can not be decomposed by bacteria in the body, what will happen to our bodies? of course it will be very dangerous for our health.

Health Hazards of Chemical Fertilizer

Even the UN agency for environmental claim that chemical poisoning is one of the five leading causes of death in the world. Incredible! we need to be careful with the use of this hazardous chemicals. UN calls for immediate action to reduce the dangers of certain chemicals that continue to increase the health and the environment. A recent study, "Global Prospects of Chemical Compounds", from the United Nations for environmental program (UNEP) found that the safe management of chemical compounds can save millions of lives and boost the economy in many countries. Of course we have to take part of this global effort. If it does not start from ourselves? we would expect to whom?

We need to know that when we add a chemical fertilizer into the soil, the fertilizer actually just giving nutrients of food at that time only. But the elements of fertilizers are not able to be absorbed by the soil, consequently when the rain comes, then the element-element fertilizers are carried by rain water along with nutrients. As a result, in the long term, then the land becomes barren. Fertility of the land will be lost due to chemical fertilizer.

Chemical fertilizer was also providing a result that is lethal 11 elements that are useful in the plant. So actually when we eat food that is produced from chemical fertilizer, then we actually have eat food that has lost 11 elements useful nutrients for our body. It is very unfortunate is not it?

Health Hazards of Chemical Fertilizer

Then it is time we re-examine our food. As much as possible we take from the organic. More healthy and provides many benefits for our bodies.

Hopefully this article provides benefits, especially for myself.

If the organic material has a ratio of C / N is not high composted and given directly into the ground then the breakdown will occur in the soil, resulting in increased CO2 in the ground that it interferes with plant growth, even in light soils resulting in low water holding capacity of the soil and the structure of fibrous and rough.

Since my young age, I really like the mangosteen fruit. White flesh that is composed of several fruit seeds, giving a very sweet taste. But very different from the fruit that tastes very sweet, but the skin of the mangosteen actually tasted very sour. This is ultimately not favored by connoisseurs of mangosteen. Thus, many connoisseurs of mangosteen will throw away the skin. Skin contains a lot of sap to make our mouths become less comfortable.



Though, we need to realize that the mangosteen rind turns out, is a herbs that are beneficial to human health. This is mostly unconscious. Mangosteen peel can be used to treat diseases such as cancer.



Mangosteen fruit has the Latin name Garnicia mangostana. Included in the family guttiferae. There are a few people from my country (Indonesia) which has begun to recognize and utilize the benefits of mangosteen rind. There are among those who complained his heart beating and his wrists and often painful. He thought it would suffer from heart disease or arthritis. Then they started taking mangosteen skin are packaged in capsules, finally no longer feel the heart palpitations and fatigue. That was incredible

Among the total, which is about 40-50 species found in mangosteen rind

These compounds, capable of inhibiting proliferase (multiplication) of cancer cells in the presence of alpha mangostin and garcinone E that trigger the process of apoptosis (cancer cell suicide). Then, gamma mangostin as an anti-inflammatory (anti-inflammatory) in the case of Alzheimer's

In addition, From the research results, mangosteen rind contains 17,000 to 20,000 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) per 100 ounces (approximately 2,835 grams of mangosteen peel). The larger amount of carrot and orange ORAC levels was only 300 and 2,400. ORAC, which is the ability of antioxidants to neutralize free radicals. Antioxidant itself, is a substance that the body needs to neutralize free radicals that come from air pollution, tobacco smoke, excessive evaporation of alcohol, preservatives fertilizers, ultraviolet light, x-rays, ozone, etc.
