The only advice you will ever need is here

I have listened to this podcast for over a year and it has changed my life. I have become an extremely healthy person and feel so amazing since incorporating the different forms of advice into my lifestyle. I love the variety of guests on the show and that the girls all have an open mind and open heart. Thank you for these episodes, I am a little sad however that it has come to an end!

Glysophate convo

Listened to this with open ears but unfortunately it was so flawed in true information. Your misinformed panel of so called experts’ were like a ‘girl catchup gossip session’.
You cunningly left out that to be poisoned from Roundup ,the user would need to not follow Ag health PPE guidelines & literally orally ingest a minimal of 1000L in one session.Your misinformation is dishonourable !!You failed miserably to discuss this as you set out to destroy our grain & Broadacre farming industries, simply you set out to conjure up all the misinformation from quack Kansas dropouts!!
You failed to discuss that organic farmers also spray their cropping areas but they only do this at night!! Sure , we would love to live in a fairyland of agriculture where we don’t eat animals, use any best management programmes to produce the greenest cleanest, environmentally sustainable cheap food on your plates. Sure, let’s change all Farming techniques to fit into your ‘fairyland’ but ensure your deceptive speakers also pay the market value of these crops. So put your money where your mouth is & start paying $5000/tn for all cereal crops at Farmgate , ensure all those industries maintain your chemical free ideals. Then the price of the crops will continue to increase , so are your idealist socialist supporters willing to pay these prices?
All your so called international research you mentioned is the biggest load of BS I’ve ever heard- where’s the proof, you continue to fail to provide who these investigators are, what were their hypothesis ?
Your socialist biased opinions ensure that your Eastern suburb, beachi ‘welllife comrades runout & continue to support your own agenda & podcast secret supporters. I’ve heard Cyndi Omeara speak in public on several occasions & I found it was the biggest load of cow manure I’ve ever had to endure!! Your Kansas dropout was so flawed in her propaganda ideals it was excruciating to listen to. What a bunch of crackpots.
You say you don’t want pesticides, additives in your food chain, how about you build yourselves a spacecraft & fly to your imaginary ‘ fairyland.
