Germany’s “green” attitude is well known around the world, for good reasons. Throughout the industrial revolution, Germany’s heavy metal and chemical industries severely polluted the environment, causing severe health problems among millions of people. Even in the 1970s, close to 70% of the German forest was severely damaged due to acid rain.
So, it’ no wonder that Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the organic food movement,tended his first bio-dynamic fields close tho Berlin; that Samuel Hahnemann “invented” homeopathy; that the “Reformhaus” health food coops offered “clean” label foods as early as the 1880s.
