5 Reasons We Should Not Ignore Chemtrails on Earth Day

5 Reasons We Should Not Ignore Chemtrails on Earth Day

In this article, I will be discussing 5 reasons why Earth Day and chemtrails/geoengineering go together and that each Earth Day should include education and development of strategies around this issue. The fact that the date for the International March Against Chemtrails this year occurs the weekend after Earth Day seems to me to be very appropriate. If geoengineering/chemtrail activists are right, that a toxic chemical cocktail is being allowed to rain down upon us, then this phenomenon not only affects our air, but also our land and seas.

New Analysis: “GE Crops Have Done NOTHING To Improve Global Food Security”; Here’s How to Increase Production & Reduce Waste Without GMOs

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) released a new analysis on Tuesday debunking the myth that genetically engineered crops (often called GMOs) will be crucial to “feeding the world” as the population soars. My report takes a hard look at recent research and concludes that so far, GE crops have done nothing to improve global food security – and there’s little reason to think that they will any time soon.

Urban Farming: Solving Problems In The U.S. Food System

Urban Farming: Solving Problems In The U.S. Food System

Urban farming, particularly with vertical systems, speaks to (and can possibly resolve) issues like food accessibility, scale and affordability. “We need to improve our distribution, eat higher quality food, and make sure that the hungriest, poorest people have access to the highest quality food. It doesn’t make any sense to not provide people with nutritious food, because you end up paying for it on the back end with medical costs and a host of other things,” said Josh Lee, a.k.a. “Farmer Josh,” the co-founder of Green Top Farms: A Queens-based urban farming company that grows and distributes salad greens to New Yorkers.

Is This a Major Turning Point in the Battle Against Pesticides & GMOs?

Is This a Major Turning Point in the Battle Against Pesticides & GMOs?

When paradigms shift, tyrants fall, or corporations lose their market, it is often not from some spectacular event, but by a single, humanizing display. We have just witnessed such an event during the interview of high-profile GMO advocate Patrick Moore. Additionally, this viral video has exploded in popularity giving yet another sign, along with recoiling public dollars, that genetically modified organisms are not wanted. In it, Moore does a near perfect job in less than two minutes to show the world the unempathetic, hypocritical face of the biotech/GMO industry stripped of all spin, lies, and deception.

Ever Notice That Gardening Makes You Happy? Here’s The Science On Why

Ever Notice That Gardening Makes You Happy? Here’s The Science On Why

Did you know that there’s a natural antidepressant in soil? It’s true. Mycobacterium vaccae is the substance under study that has been found to mirror the effect on neurons that drugs like Prozac provide. The bacterium is found in soil and may stimulate serotonin production, which makes you relaxed and happier. The serotonin boost that is provided by this bacteria, might also aid our learning abilities.

Beef Industry’s Warped Recycling: Feed Possibly Diseased Cows to Chickens

Beef Industry’s Warped Recycling: Feed Possibly Diseased Cows to Chickens

The beef industry increasingly feeds cattle “poultry litter,” scraped from chicken coop floors, a practice that, as Brad Jacobson reported for OnEarth, “risks the spread of mad cow disease—yet the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has done nothing to stop it.” In 1997, the FDA made it illegal to feed dead cows to living cows, the main cause of the disease. In response to those laws, the beef industry teamed up with the poultry industry to exploit a major loophole in the 1997 law. Jacobson describes a “Feedlot Feedback Loop”: first, the poultry industry feeds the dead remains of cattle to chickens and other poultry; the mess created by poultry, known as “litter,” is then sold to the cattle producer who feed it to cattle that the public eventually consumes as beef

Agribusiness Bullies Attack Scientists Who Reveal Herbicide Health Threats

In September 2012, Dr. Gilles-Éric Séralini published research findings in the peer-reviewed . These findings showed the toxic impact of Monsanto’s herbicide and genetically modified corn—including adverse health effects on rats. However, after publication, the journal made the unprecedented decision to retract the study.

Groundbreaking Food Science Discovery: Edible Plants ‘Talk’ To Animal Cells, Promote Healing

Groundbreaking Food Science Discovery: Edible Plants ‘Talk’ To Animal Cells, Promote Healing

A groundbreaking new study published in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research titled, “Interspecies communication between plant and mouse gut host cells through edible plant derived exosome-like nanoparticles,” reveals a new way that food components ‘talk’ to animal cells by regulating gene expression and conferring significant therapeutic effects. This is the first study of its kind to look at the role of exosomes, small vesicles secreted by plant and animal cells that participate in intercellular communication, in interspecies (plant-animal) communication. Exosomes are the missing link in how plants and animal cells communicate and collaborate.

Watch How this Incredible Public Food Park Feeds 200,000 a Month

It is becoming more apparent that we need to begin reclaiming our food supply through small-scale, wide-spread farming practices. We can no longer rely on Big Food to supply us with the nutritious food we need, and we certainly can’t rely on mega chemical companies like Monsanto to feed us with their genetically modified creations. This is why countless communities are embracing the giving art of local farms and supporting local food businesses. One Incredible Edible park in Irvine, California, formerly 7.5 acres of wasted space, is now an edible park that feeds 200,000 people every month!
