Debunking ‘Alternative Facts’ About Pesticides and Organic Farming

Debunking the propaganda about organic food, and how it can’t feed the world.  It can  through the use of biodiversity, permaculture, growing the appropriate foods for each unique biosphere-and how to adapt your crop to your environment; and feed the soil, earth, beneficial insects & mycelium, the animals, and so we will have healthier bodies, and spend less on healthcare- as a whole country. Which is beneficial to us;  but not to the producers of toxic chemicals, seeds and food.  Who pollute the whole planet underfoot as they plan & labor to grow product with long shelf life, capable of being shipped long distances, with the highest profit margin, that will dominate the marketplace squelching out competition, that will make us sick.  Good,  then we turn to their brother & utilize Big Pharma’s products and services.  Good riddance to all of them, they don’t work.  Time to bring in the Commonsense Era !

“When you compare organic versus conventional food, it is absolutely inarguable that organic food reduces dietary exposure to pesticides by 98 percent.”

OCA: Take Action to Keep GMOs Out of Organic!

When the DARK Act became law this summer, GMO labeling wasn’t the only victim. The DARK Act is also intended to kill efforts to keep genetically modified organisms (GMOs) out of organic.

Statement from Stephen McDonnell, Founder, Applegate – Applegate

This is reassuring;  although the announcement that Hormel has bought Applegate  – meat products – might make you think that everything healthful and humane about this company might go downhill, in this press release we are being informed that they will continue offering antibiotic free, humanly raised meat products,  and IN ADDITION that they will soon be completely be GMO free AND that their animals will only be fed gmo free feed.  Wow! that does not happen with many meats ; unless you go to your friendly local butcher who can guarantee that he is providing only pastured meat, and that the farmers are only feeding them organic grains.   Thank you Applegate Farms.

July 9, 2016 A Dark Time in US history

Such a Dark dark time in the USA as Monsanto,  the GMA, the biotech & chemical food industry, the USDA & the politicians & our govt have forced the DARK act upon  we the people.  Not only have we been sold out by the politicians, but by Whole Foods, the Organic Trade Assoc., and many “organic” companies that are only there to exploit the consumer for financial gain.  The chart shows who really owns many organic food companies.   This is going to be an extremely difficult challenge to “eat clean” ;  luckily I just don’t eat much- lots of fasting ;  Hey, I’ll look on the bright side,  cutting calories will be easier than ever!
