Video: Keep the Soil in Organic Rally

Dear brothers and sisters,

Recently there has arisen a new threat to organics. I’m referring to hydroponics- the growing of fruits and vegetables in chemical solutions. People are just waking up to the fact that massive amounts of food grown in chemical soup, in sealed buildings, radiated non-stop, 24 hours a day with LED light… are being labeled as “organic”. Some see this as a threat to the soul of organics.

Think of it. Those raspberries and blackberries that have been in the stores all winter… those peppers, and cucumbers how shiny and bright… not a spot or imperfection… they have been grown artificially.

What about the tomatoes? All winter long organic cherry and grape tomatoes have been coming from Mexico; they too have been grown artificially. (Now Mexico prohibits hydroponically grown vegetables from being sold as organic in Mexico but it’s okay, of course, to sell it as “organic” to the U.S).
The organic label will indeed assure you that an item has not been contaminated with pesticides, artificial fertilizers or GMOs. But it is of no help in knowing whether or not a fruit or vegetable is grown in living soil or in a chemical moonscape.

I rejoice that so many brothers and sisters have raised their voices in righteous protest.

Here you are standing up for every American- for life and aliveness! Enjoy the video!

With best wishes for vibrant good health to you and family,

Featured Item: Alive & Organic Almond Butter 16oz On Sale In June!!!

A $22.99 Value – Yours for $19.99!!!

And remember if you buy three jars or more you get an additional 10% discount.


We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.

We invite you to open a jar and spread our almond butter on a slice of apple. Experience its texture, savor its aroma and taste its whole-bodied flavor.

Quinoa Puffs – For Your Breakfast Delight!


Just the thing to wean kids (and adults) from sugary breakfast cereals. Just add almond mild for a magnificent treat. You’ll delight family and friends with this stepping stone on the way toward raw. Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete foodstuff. This means it takes less quinoa protein to meet one’s needs than wheat protein. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron.

 

 

 

Flax Seed Flour – Alive, Organic and Grown by American Farmers


High in Fiber, but Low in Carbs. One of the most extraordinary benefits of flax seeds is that they contain high levels of mucilage gum content. Mucilage is a gel-forming fiber that is water soluble and has incredible benefits on the intestinal tract. The mucilage can keep food in the stomach from emptying too quickly into the small intestine which can increase nutrient absorption.

Olive Oil Flavored with Crimson Oranges – Alive, Organic & Dry Farmed


This olive oil offers new, unexpected nuances of flavor that will excite and enhance the palate. The olives and the oranges are co-milled; that is, they are crushed at the same time. A single oil is extracted from the combination. Most flavored olive oils are infused – this or that extract is added. Co-milling results in a product very different from infusing.

Goes well with salads, fish and vegetable dishes.

Excellent for baking and desserts. Ecstatic on vanilla ice cream and with chocolatey flavors.

Artificial intelligence will replace half of all jobs in the next decade


(Natural News) Artificial intelligence is set to replace 50 percent of all jobs in the next 10 years, renowned technologist Kai-Fu Lee predicted. In a report published last year, Lee highlighted how artificial intelligence is starting to shape the world’s landscape. “AI is really changing every profession and every industry. There’s almost nothing that won’t be touched by AI. You could easily imagine education applications for instance — AI could replace a lot of the basic teaching functions. Medicine and health are also key areas. AI works very hard and is very cheap. Humanity as a whole will have a lot more resources and we will probably be able to take care of everyone thanks to AI. As for human mankind, we’re probably not here on Earth to perform repetitive and non-productive tasks,” Lee said in TechCrunch.com.

According to Lee, artificial intelligence will be the single most significant innovation in all of human tech revolutions combined — such as electricity, the industrial revolution, internet, mobile internet — due to its pervasiveness. Lee also stressed that artificial intelligence far surpasses human capabilities. As an example, Lee noted that artificial intelligence could recognize three million faces at the same time, and may even disperse loans in eight seconds. “It is the decision engine that will replace people. These are things that are superhuman, and we think this will be in every industry, will probably replace 50 percent of human jobs, create a huge amount of wealth for mankind and wipe out poverty” Lee stated in a separate article in CNBC.com.
