Go Organic!

Organic means to me that people are aware of the consequences of their actions. We know that artificial chemicals used as pesticides and fertilizers are polluting the soil and our water supply. These chemicals are upsetting the natural, ecological balance nature intended by favoring one part of the balance at the expense of another part. All parts have to work together for the benefit of the whole. Organic means to work in harmony with, not against, Mother Nature/Mother Earth. Artificial chemicals destroy the life of the soil, without which all our efforts at a peaceful, anxiety free life come to nothing.

Go Organic!

We, our friends and loved ones, including our pets, can do a huge service to our world, our community, our selves and our creator by supporting clean living in our eating and living organically. Every dollar spent on organic does not go to GMO, pesticides, factory farming and pollution. We are glowingly healthful because we are fueled by nutrient dense unpolluted foods and our homes and selves are cleansed with clean (filtered) water and environmentally friendly cleaners. Olive oil and coconut oil are excellent skin moisturizers. Be sure to use organic everything.

Go Organic!

New reason to go organic: Nanotech Food What happens when you break up something like titanium dioxide into teensy weeny nanoparticles? Nobody knows for sure. But we do know that those miniaturized particles behave differently than their larger counterparts. We also know, thanks to a new report by Friends of the Earth, that at least 96 food items (probably more) sold in grocery stores contain nanoparticles. You won’t find that out by reading labels, though. Because food companies aren’t required to list nanoingredients on their labels. Who’s feeding you nanoparticles? Companies like Kraft, General Mills, Hershey, Nestle, Mars, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Smucker’s and Albertsons, according to Friends of the Earth. (You can get a more comprehensive list from the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies.) Coincidentally (or not), most of these companies are members of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, and their products are on OCA’s boycott list. According to Mother Jones, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration admits that nanoparticles pose risks. But in its infinite wisdom, the agency has done nothing to stop the flood of new nanoparticles into your food. And it has no plans to force fake-food companies to fess up to putting this stuff in their food-like products.
