About

What's in the food you eat?

Our mission is to reduce both toxic pesticide use and manmade marine dead zones worldwide by over 80%. Exposure to pesticides through the air, our food, and the environment has proven to be damaging to human health (3X more for children), including cancer. This is crazy! Why did we ever let it get that way?

Most of us love strawberries, right? Well, one acre of normally grown strawberries can be covered with 300 pounds of pesticides -- about 11 times more than the average food crop, which is already overloaded with pesticides. However, it gets worse. In strawberry crop samples, the USDA found 19 honeybee toxins, 12 developmental toxins (children), 11 neurotoxins (children), and 9 known carcinogens.

In extensive crop testing, pesticides (including arsenic and glyphosate residues) were proven to poison and change the taste of wines. Glyphosate is the center of attention in the current Bayer-Monsanto Landmark Cancer Trial in San Francisco and is attracting worldwide attention. Glyphosate, one of Roundup’s most toxic chemicals (used in 700 different herbicides), was found in 100% of California wines tested. Glyphosate has not only poisoned wine but also organic wine and beer due to wind drift and systemic (root) action.

Recently, Hawaii banned the use of pesticides containing chlorpyrifos, a widely-used chemical that’s been linked to severe developmental delays and other health risks in children. Even though the current Administration denied a petition to ban pesticides with this chemical over a year earlier, Hawaii is setting a positive example for all of us to follow and say "NO" to toxic pesticides that poison us on a daily basis.

The world's first fully energetic plant food amplifier!

Let’s take a quick look at what should be obvious, but isn’t. We have companies like Bayer-Monsanto and Dow-Dupont delivering toxic pesticides to farmers who in turn poison us and our ecosystems with those toxic chemicals. Hmmm... Something seems to be wrong here.

We also have large proactive groups like Moms Across America, Moms Clean Air Force, Women of Green, Pesticide Action Network, and others that help by lobbying and educating us about toxic chemicals. 

However, no one has offered a tangible and workable solution to this global crisis until now. Here's why SmartNute may grow the next generation of fruits, vegetables, and cannabis:

SmartNute is a 100% from nature plant food amplifier that reduces the need for harmful and toxic pesticides. It can also help reduce nitrogen and phosphorus runoff that causes global algae blooms and marine dead zones -- through an 80% reduction in conventional fertilizer use. Using SmartNute to help deliver more complete nutrient and fertilizer formulas not only reduces the use of pesticides, but can also help bring back the full flavor and high nutrient value our produce offered decades ago.

Think of SmartNute like this; just as an amplifier for your sound system can increase the volume and resonance of your music, SmartNute works to increase the quantity and quality of your plant food nutrition.  

In addition, it’s a great healer for our environment too! The world’s largest dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico can now reverse its damage when SmartNute is embraced to reduce fertilizer runoff toxicity over 80%.  

Industry leaders may want to note the technology used to develop SmartNute will open the door to a full host of like-tech products throughout diverse industries, disrupting them one-by-one.

  

"Exposure can occur in agriculture, through the treatment of crops, plants and grain stores. It can occur in forestry, gardening, professional and domestic pest control and through the spraying and use of amenities e.g. our parks, pavements and playgrounds. Exposure can also occur through the treatment of wood with preservatives, the treatment of boat hulls with anti-fouling agents, and the treatment of livestock with anti-parasitic preparations, e.g. sheep dip etc. In addition, pesticide residues found on, and in, our food also puts us at risk." - Pesticide Action UK

Pesticides Are Toxic And Can Be Found Everywhere

As a nation, we intentionally release toxic substances into our environment to kill living things: insects, fungi, weeds, rodents, and other living creatures; exposure to pesticides can impact an organism's ability to survive which can alter an organism’s behavior.  Pesticides are among the leading causes of death by self-poisoning, in particular in low - and middle - income countries.

Pesticides are used almost everywhere — not only in agricultural fields — they can be found in our homes, buildings, parks, forests, roads, and schools. Our air can be affected by pesticides in agriculture and urban settings and this can affect human, animal, and plant health. Our children are exposed to pesticides at home, daycare, and on schools and playgrounds. Even in the food we eat. To ensure that food is not damaged or destroyed by pests, more than 1000 different pesticides are used around the world. Each pesticide has different properties and toxicological effects. 

The Overuse of Nitrogen and Phosphorus Heavy Fertilizers Creates Marine "Dead Zones"

Dead zones - or hypoxic zones - are biological deserts, lacking the oxygen needed for life. Although Hypoxic zones can occur naturally, humans can contribute to dead zones (algae blooms) through any number of physical, chemical, and biological factors, although nutrient and fertilizer pollution are the primary causes. SmartNute can reduce nitrogen and phosphorus toxicity over 80%.

We Want To Build A Toxic-Free Future For Our Children

Developmental toxins are substances which can have an effect on an unborn child. If an expectant mother is repeatedly in contact with these toxic chemicals, the fetus can be affected and adverse effects can manifest at any point during a child's lifetime. 

Effects of pesticide exposure can include the death of a fetus, structural abnormality, altered growth, and abnormal organ function.

Children tend to frequent areas where pesticides are used more often - like parks and playgrounds. A child's skin is much more permeable than an adults and their skin surface area relative to body weight is higher (making it much easier for children to absorb higher rates of pesticides). They often sit, lie and play on the ground where they easily come into contact with freshly applied pesticides or even the dust that is contaminated with pesticides. 

Glyphosate is the most-used herbicide (pesticide) in the world. A new study on glyphosate in pregnant women from Indiana confirms that this widely used herbicide ends up in people’s bodies. The findings also suggest that prenatal glyphosate exposure may be linked to shorter pregnancies.

It's the primary active ingredient in Bayer-Monsanto's Roundup (distributed by Scott's Miracle Gro) and other glyphosate-based herbicide formulations used with genetically engineered (GE) crops.

Did you know?

Infants will absorb around three times more pesticides than adults from similar exposure episodes.

More Than Just Food, Pesticides Are Used In Cannabis Production

More people are smoking cannabis now than ever before, and thirty states have legalized the use of marijuana. Cannabis buds can become contaminated with pesticides in a few different ways. The direct application of pesticides on flowering plants; drift from neighboring fields of food crops; or through systemic contamination. 

Dabs, waxes and shatters aren’t immune from contamination either—in fact, extraction processes may “concentrate certain pesticides even more so than cannabinoids,” according to Dr. Land, a professor of chemistry, forensic science and biotechnology at the University of California, Davis, and an analytical chemist with decades of experience who has been working with Steep Hill. 

Dr. Land noted that most extraction processes get rid of microorganisms but not chemical contaminants. Ultimately Steep Hill invested in expensive technology to test for pesticides at very low levels in order to predict if a flower sample will result in a highly contaminated concentrate.

Two Colorado edibles companies voluntarily issued product recalls over concerns about banned pesticides, recalling 20,000 packages of 16 different products. Both edibles companies had purchased cannabis used for food production from TruCannabis, who issued their own recall due to concerns over pesticide use.

We Have A Toxic-Free Alternative to Heavy Pesticide Use

SmartNute is a plant food amplifier 6X (soil)-8X (hydro). SmartNute can nourish hydroponic and soil grown plants.

SmartNute duplicates the actions of phosphates for healthy blooms and root systems, duplicating the actions of potash and nitrogen for healthy fruits and foliage - including the easy assimilation of water. SmartNute also duplicates the action of 90+ macro, micro, and ultra-trace elements - and amino acids, enzymes, proteins, vitamins, and beneficial bacteria ensuring a healthy plant to ward off pests and deliver intense fragrance and flavor.

Reduce Use of Toxic Pesticides by Using SmartNute

Many plant food and fertilizer companies recommend 1 teaspoon of nutrients to one gallon of water, our plant food amplifier gives you 6-8 gallons of water for that same 1 teaspoon. That's SIX TO EIGHT TIMES more nutrient value than conventional fertilizers including a positive environmental result! 

In addition, commercial hydro and soil growers can realize major labor savings and many other benefits too. States, regions, and countries can have a positive impact on their environment and economy when they rely on SmartNute.

SmartNute has a mission, to reduce the use of pesticides and also reduce nitrogen and phosphorus toxicity to help balance our ecosystems and create a toxic-free future.

We're ready for your help in making this dream a reality! Think about it...what would your children want you to do right now? Come join us in creating a toxic-free future for our children!

Risks and challenges

So, here's our proposal to you since we trust you're serious about eliminating these atrocities against our planet, our animals, and against humanity.

We’ve overcome evolving obstacles and challenges while inventing the world's first fully energetic plant food amplifier. And, we also realize this is just the beginning of our blueprint to grow into a successful global branding and licensing organization to help revive our planet. Company growth includes developing a global team of technologists and creatives combined with an accomplished team of change agents.

Since 2014, we've invested over 4 years and well over 2,000 laboratory, soil, and aeroponic grow tests – all totaling over 12,000 hours in R&D to establish SmartNute’s first marketable formula. It's not a Ferrari, more like a Chevrolet. We are now upping the ante and developing a more robust formula. (NOTE: Edison and his research team tested over 3,000 designs to develop his basic and famous light bulb.)

One challenge ahead is leveraging this opportunity to set the path for exponential growth. Our founder and co-inventor is relying on a strong network of top executives he's developed over the years to help meet our operational strategy, benchmarks, and goals.

You are key in helping us successfully launch this project in order to reach our next marketing benchmark.

Another challenge is neutralizing the resentment and repercussion from big agriculture and big chemical companies. They won't take the success of SmartNute sitting down and we're prepared for their aggression. Our founder has taken a proactive stance to meet this challenge. After all, enough is enough; and big corporations' atrocities against humanity and our planet must stop and the continued poisoning of our Earth must be reduced.

Our biggest challenge? We already know the levels of pesticide poisoning and toxic fertilizer runoff are crazy unacceptable in America, but what about other countries? In China, pesticide levels are nearly 5X more than America, in the Bahamas 27X, the Netherlands 4X more, and so on around the world. This problem is getting worse, not better.

In 1962 Rachel Carson picked up the torch and published the best seller “Silent Spring”. This book exposed the atrocities Big Agriculture forces on our planet and humanity. Our ecosystems are at a perilous tipping point worldwide. Now, we're ready to carry on Ms. Carson’s work and make a tangible and positive difference on a global scale.

We've already proven SmartNute can help reduce pesticide use and help balance our ecosystems. So, with your heart invested in our planet and our children's future, we can make this happen together. We're ready for your help today! Sincerely, The SmartNute Team
