Organically managed soils can convert carbon CO2 from a greenhouse gas into a food-producing asset.” Two major upsides to this approach are drought-proof soils and, thanks to more nutrient-rich foods, reduced healthcare costs.
A Swedish family has eaten only organic food for two weeks as part of a study conducted by The Swedish Environmental Research Institute. The study – commissioned by Swedish supermarket chain Coop – saw the family dramatically change its diet, with impressive results. A video about the study introduced the family of five, with mother Anette explaining why they typically didn’t eat organic food. “It costs more than conventional food and we’re a big family,” she said in the video.

Greenpeace calls it not perfect but a move in the right direction and I tend to agree.
Research conducted on the sugarcane containers by its producers in Japan and Brazil showed that every kilogram of carbon capture plastic produced captured 2kg of atmospheric CO2. Comparatively every kilogram of petrochemical produced caused just under 2kg of CO2 to be generated and released.
Was I shocked to learn that eating GMO foods can increase the rate of heart attacks, strokes, and bypass surgeries in multiple medical studies in humans?
No … because these studies don’t exist. As it says in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, “Avert the danger that has not yet come.”
Over the past few decades, there has been a significant loss of pollinators, including honey bees, native bees, birds, bats, and butterflies, from the environment. The problem is serious and requires immediate attention to ensure the sustainability of our food production systems, avoid additional economic impact on the agricultural sector, and protect the health of the environment.
This would be the first-ever genetically engineered animal intended for human consumption to enter the marketplace despite widespread public outcry and a faulty assessment based on incomplete company data.
My dear wife found a nice app on her iPhone the other day. I had a look at it and installed it too. The free version lists the most common 50 additives, whereas the full version has a lot more. Food Additives 2 By IGRASS PTY LTD Avoid those additives that are potentially dangerous or…
My son Janus is currently doing fundraising for his 2013 north island Scout Jamboree in December 2013. Jamboree is a massive 10 day camp with 4,000+ SCOUTS that will be a massive adventure and learning experience for all attending.
However, this is expensive and his parents are of the opinion that he has to do some work for it.
The latest news comes from the US now regarding GM crops being draught intolerant.
That’s exactly what the US need….
