Importance of eating organic and our health

Eating organic foods today is very important. Food companies are growing food with genetically modified ingredients. We don't know the implications of what that's going to do to us or our children. We want to support small farmers who grow organic food so that we eat healthy and eat clean. Most important thing like I said is avoiding foods that have genetically modified ingredients in them. An example of genetically modified foods are soya beans and corn and they are used for cereals, they are used for fillers and foods that are packaged. We can look at a package and see if the manufacturer is using organic, or that word organic is not on that package.

Steven Kiralla

Eco Dad

Steven was born and grew up in Southern California. His parents were from Lebanon and had lived in a village and a society that was very in tune with nature and the natural cycles of their surroundings, and very self sufficient with growing food. At a young age he was attracted to his mother’s gardening passion and her magical ways of growing food. In 1970 he was graduating from high school, and the first Earth Day was April of that year. Earth Day made a positive change in the way he saw the planet, the air, water, population and our waste. He started wondering how we can live in our natural world with balance and less damage. Steven has a Bachelor of Science degree in
 Horticultural and Agricultural Sciences. After college, he volunteered for the Peace Corps and spent two years working in Colombia, South America.

In 1999, he and his wife helped found Seven Arrows Elementary School in Pacific Palisades, California, where both of their children attended K-6. Steven created the school’s edible garden and taught gardening and cooking to the students. He also started the Environmental/Green Committee that helped the school act daily in “green thinking” ways. He loves to be outdoors, hiking, biking, surfing, camping, skiing, playing tennis and anything else to challenge his mind and body.
