Editorial: Now is the Time to Ask Some Questions

Dear brothers and sisters,

Those picture-perfect tomatoes and raspberries currently in the stores are nurtured on factory farms, in Mexico. They are lovingly grown in chemical soup. Assuredly… they are organic.

And what about milk and dairy products from cows, tenderly crowded into feedlots without adequate pasture? What of the eggs from hens, humanely jammed into buildings without real outdoor access? Assuredly… they too, are organic.

It seems to us that its time to reclaim our heritage. Dave Chapman,a Vermont family farmer, urges us to ask questions at our local natural foodstores. Ask them which of their “organic” fruits and vegetables are hydroponically grown? Ask them where are the almonds grown that go into that almond butter, wondrous cheap? Sicily or southern Spain?

Also, if you click on the link, you’ll find a letter that you can sign on to.

Organic is your birthright. Surely, brothers and sisters, its time to reclaim it.

Please accept our springtime best wishes for good health, prosperity and success to you and family,

Jesse Schwartz PhD

Campaign: “Just Ask”

One of the programs we are most excited about is the “Just Ask” campaign, urging eaters all over the country to ask the staff where they shop whether the certified organic tomatoes and berries offered are hydroponic or are they real organic grown in the soil. And eaters will ask if the eggs and meat and milk came from CAFOs or from farms where the animals got real access to pasture every day.

The “Just Ask” campaign has the same goal as the current effort from Cornucopia Institute to Demand Real Organic Food From Real Organic Farmers. Cornucopia wants all organic eaters to send them a card asking major retailers to offer genuine organic choices. If we speak up, the stores will respond. Please visit them and support this campaign:

Brown Whole Grain Teff Flour – Grown by Oregon Family Farmers

The Teff grain used to make this flour is grown in Junction City, Oregon on Hunton’s Farm. They are a third generation family farm in the Willamette Valley.

Teff is a tiny whole grain best known as an ingredient in injera, a traditional Ethiopian spongy sour flatbread on which salad and stews are served. Injera is made with fermented Teff Flour, often in combination with wheat. Teff flour can also be used to make pancakes, as a substitute for part of the flour in baked goods and breads, and as a thickener for soups, stews, gravies, and puddings.

Brown Teff Flour has a taste reminiscent of hazelnut, with a hint of chocolate. Our Teff Flour is stone-ground at Camas Country Mill in Eugene. The mill also grinds other grains, so this flour is not guaranteed gluten free.

ADHD is a FAKE disease invented by Big Pharma to drug children for profit

(Natural News) ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is ubiquitous in the American classroom, there’s little debate about that. According to CDC statistics from 2012, 11 percent of children between the ages of four and 17 had been diagnosed with ADHD at some point. With over six million kids diagnosed, it’s hard not to wonder: Is this condition even a real problem?

Sure, some kids struggle to pay attention during school — but does that signify an actual problem with the child? Perhaps it’s more indicative of a society that simply doesn’t allow children to be children anymore. If you’ve ever found that the notion that children who’d rather play outside than sit at a desk are “broken” and need medication was a bit hard to digest, you may be right.

Writing for The Daily Bell, Joe Jarvis explains that there is proof that ADHD is nothing more than a fake disease. As Jarvis notes, two states with some of the highest incidences of ADHD are Arkansas and Kentucky.
