It's back-to-school time across America, and parents everywhere are about to subject their children to the horrors of public school food. The solution to this is to create healthy lunchboxes for your children, and packing those lunchboxes with healthy food is now easier than ever thanks to a special sale on crunchy freeze-dried organic fruit from the Natural News Store.
While it's generally agreed in the natural health arena that organically produced fare is superior in safety compared to crops that utilize GMOs or chemical pesticides, the fact that it's more nutritious might be overlooked by consumers. Conventional growers insist there isn't a substantial difference between the two, yet several studies have found otherwise.
In the UK, organic food sales have been falling since 2008. The featured commentary1 discusses whether organic is going "out of style," or if people's tastes and reasoning for going organic are simply changing.
Instead of nurturing humanity through education, healthy eating, natural medicine and planting ancient organic heirloom fruits and vegetables, the Evil Empire of Monsanto and the various committees of the current American administration seem committed to their GMO agenda of taking over the farming and agricultural industries world-wide. Wrecking havoc one plant at a time, it is now known that 90 to 95 percent of the world's heirloom seeds are now extinct; and, what's left are bioengineered plants responsible for promoting deadly diseases; famines due to non-sustainability; altered genetics in plants, animals and humans, and decimated agricultural economies around the globe.
Does an apple a day keep the bacteria away? Only if you haven't already developed a resistance.
In an era where American consumers seem to be shifting towards more wholesome, healthy diets - the push for labeling of GM foods, fewer chemicals, more fruits and veggies - an organization that is supposed to be focused on promoting truly organic food is changing its standards to allow for the inclusion of synthetic substances in, of all things, baby food.
Making healthy food choices is important. But, sometimes it's really tough to be sure that you are getting what you intended to get. Let's say, for example, that you have made a decision to eat primarily organic foods. Well, how do you know it's organic? The obvious answer is that it is labeled by the USDA, whose National Organic Program regulates the standards for any farm, wild crop harvesting, or handling operation that wants to sell an agricultural product as organically produced. In order to represent their products as Certified Organic, and show the USDA Organic label, these producers have to meet all of the standards set forth in the Program.
It has become quite obvious that organic farmers have been taken advantage of by food giant Monsanto for some time now.
Monsanto Co. on Monday won another round in a legal battle with U.S. organic growers as an appeals court threw out the growers' efforts to stop the company from suing farmers if traces of its patented biotech genes are found in crops.
