    We all know about eating healthy and as organically as we can, but now I am concerned about a new issue. It seems some studies claim fluoride, when taken daily, can be toxic. Since most of us receive fluoride unwillingly and unknowingly in our water supply, having it in our toothpastes can lead to overexposure. It is not a nutrient, therefore our bodies do not require it.  Dr. Joseph Mercola has found that too much fluoride affects children's IQ, causes thyroid issues, and can even cause cancer. Most of Europe -- 97% -- has banned it from their water supply, and the claims that it fights…
  • Select groundcover management systems found viable for organically managed apple orchard

    A long-term study evaluated four groundcover management systems in combination with composted poultry litter, commercial organic fertilizer, or a nonfertilized control to determine ability to alter near-surface soil quality in a new organically managed apple orchard in the Ozark Highlands of northwest Arkansas. Results showed the GMS and nutrient source combinations were viable management options for apple producers in the region while satisfying USDA-National Organic Program requirements to improve soil quality with crop production.

    Kids (and adults) with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have difficulties staying on task or finishing things, and while there are other problems associated with it, these two symptoms alone can make life tough. There are facts you should know about ADHD and here are the four most disturbing. 1. ADHD Can Result from Trauma People who have ADHD likely wonder, just what caused this?

    Whether you're stuck in a food desert or have a tight food budget, you don't need to be exposed to dangerous pesticides. Despite the fact that organic food is your healthiest option, buying it isn't always feasible. A recent study conducted by the Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability Center found that, overall, organic foods cost 47 percent more. And if cost isn't a limiting factor, not everyone has equal access to fresh produce (let alone organic produce), such as those living in food deserts.Organic trumps all, since it's better for you and the environment, but the Consumer…

    For real. You definitely don't want these on your plate, Consumer Reports finds out. Sometimes organic just isn't available. So is it safe to go the nonorganic route if there's no other feasible option? While organic is always best if you're trying to protect your family from chemicals linked to breast cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, ADHD, thyroid problems, and other ills, Consumer Reports recently released a super-handy report that helps you figure out which veggies are riskier choices than others whenever you're in a position where organic isn't an option.For instance, researchers found…

    Contrary to the old adage, an apple a day may not keep the doctor away. According to the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) 2015 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce, apples topped the list as the most pesticide-contaminated produce for the fifth year in a row. Peaches and nectarines round out the top three “dirtiest” foods while avocados, sweet corn and pineapples are among the cleanest.

    For the first time in more than 50 years, eggs could be sold in a new healthy light and not with a cholesterol warning. This all depends if the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee files its springtime report with USDA and HHS (after the public comment period), and sticks to its decision to no longer caution against eating foods that contain cholesterol.Either way, eggs are great any time of the day; for breakfast, lunch or dinner or even a quick snack, they provide a ton of nutrition for low cost, and they don’t take long to prepare. So what kinds of eggs should you choose? Here are some…

    Soil carbon may not be as stable as previously thought, scientists report, adding that soil microbes exert more direct control on carbon buildup than global climate models represent. This study, researchers say, provides insight into the mechanisms determining long-term soil carbon storage, knowledge that can be used to improve climate model representations of the global carbon cycle.

    6 Apr 2015 | 1:55 pm
    Soil, long thought to be a semi-permanent storehouse for ancient carbon, may be releasing carbon dioxide to the atmosphere faster than anyone thought. In a new study, researchers showed that chemicals emitted by plant roots act on carbon that is bonded to minerals in the soil, breaking the bonds and exposing previously protected carbon to decomposition by microbes.
  • Living mulch, organic fertilizer tested on broccoli

    6 Apr 2015 | 9:14 am
    Field experiments examined whether the effects of living mulch on broccoli yield and yield components are dependent on fertilizer rates. In one experiment, broccoli yields were similar in living mulch and bare soil controls under the highest rates of fertilizer application. In a second experiment, living mulch reduced broccoli yields from 28-63 percent, depending on fertilizer rate. The authors concluded that organic fertilizer may have inconsistent effects on broccoli yields in living mulch systems.

    Most people are deficient when it comes to healthy gut flora. Normally, your gut is home to over 100 billion bacteria, but antibiotics, pesticides, stress, and genetically-modified foods are just some of the things that can weaken that diversity. [1] The microbiome (your gut’s bacteria) needs to stay healthy or problems could occur. Things like irritable bowel syndrome, gluten allergies, and even obesity are just some of the complications. Some even think the recent rise in autism, Alzheimer’s, and multiple sclerosis could even be connected to an unhealthy gut! [2] [3] [4] Here are just 3…

But I don't want to talk about chemicals right now, rather a very different type of DDT: Desired Dough Temperature. Why worry about the temperature of dough?Well, why sauté onions on the stove at a low temperature or bake muffins in a 350 F oven, or slow-smoke a pork shoulder on the grill at 200 F?

Yet this bounty of choice was pretty unusual in the roughly 20,000 years that humanity has been eating grains.

    In the last Vino 101 post we looked at adulteration, a crude type of wine fraud that is relatively easy to catch. But there is a more subtle and complex kind of fraud, in which the integrity of a prestigious wine is compromised. If you’ve been to Canal Street in New York, or Tijuana, or pretty much anywhere in China, you’ve seen cheaply made fakes of big-name brands like Fendi and Gucci. Famous wine names like Burgundy and Champagne are essentially brands too — names that, over time, have developed an identifiable style and a reputation for high quality that commands a premium price…
  • Pucker Up: Learning to love sour food

    Tracey Paska
    5 Apr 2015 | 3:33 pm
    Like bitter flavors, sourness is nature’s way of waving a red flag over a substance that is unripe, spoiled, or otherwise inedible. But for those of us who don’t mind a bit of tartness, this warning signal may actually be the first sign of some healthy benefits.We can taste sourness thanks to receptors on our tastebuds that detect hydrogen ions from organic acids found in certain foods. Many of these acids occur naturally and are part of a food’s flavor profile, such as citric in lemons, tartaric in tamarinds, and oxalic in leafy greens. Unripe fruits are particularly sour before…

I also did really well on ducks this year.

    While the wine trade enjoys a romantic public image, it is a business, and a cutthroat one at that. And, like any other business, it has had its share of unscrupulous operators. The first fraud involving wine probably arose shortly after it was initially recognized as a valuable commodity many thousands of years ago, and the ensuing years have only seen the schemes grow more ingenious, even as more controls have been put in place to stop them. The history of scandal in the wine business is not only long and colorful; it also has much to say about our complicated relationship with this…

The conclusion was that empathy was tied to environmental attitudes— “namely, a heightened sensitivity to the suffering of other people.” The authors conclude that “compassion elicits moral judgments and actions across different moral domains” — in effect, that it’s infectious.

And this has caused a tremendous uproar. For more than five years, GustOrganics had attracted a loyal customer base that was accustomed to eating meat and chicken dishes, so eliminating all of these items and carrying nothing but vegan food carried serious financial risks for the restaurant.

    I know it is very hard to recommend some products you like to use to other people, even though you think they might be the best you’ve tried. We are all so different and our skin and bodies react in a totally different, unpredicted way. It is like Jenna Marbles was saying in one of her videos recently that she wanted to have curly hair when she was little. So she asked her classmate, who had curly hair, what shampoo she was using. And as a kid, Jenna was totally sure she would get the same hair. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and us, women, we get influenced very easily…

    I have been a vegetarian for 5 years and vegan for soon to be one year. I can say that this has probably been one of the most important decisions in my life. I am proud of it and I have no regrets so far. Changing my diet habits hasn’t affected my health in a negative way, it has only brought improvements to the way I feel, to what I eat and to my lifestyle in general. For someone who is just thinking about going vegetarian, ethical arguments may not be enough, because there are still thousands of animals massacred on a daily basis anyway. But long term changes require a change of…

    I recently went on a vacation to Cuba and this post will be on the products I used to protect my skin from the sun damage. We all know how bad the sun is for your skin. Besides premature exhaustion, it can also lead too skin cancer. California has the highest rates of skin cancer due to the fact that they are constantly exposed to the sun.

  • Find out how mineral salt deodorants can help you prevent the odour.

    5 Mar 2015 | 7:33 pm
    I came across these deodorants several times in different reviews. People were saying how amazing they are, how natural and easy to use. I was even more surprised when I saw the price – under $3. So I immediately added two deodorants in order to add to my shopping cart and get a free shipping from Well.ca (use my coupon 10off2015 and get $10 off). At first when I got them, I was a bit confused. How does this work? It is just a piece of mineral salt, a salt crystal. I have never heard of salt being used to prevent odour or sweating. Originally made in Thailand, where it is very hot and…

    I’ve been using these toothpastes for almost a year. I decided to turn to something more natural and obviously, something that is not tested on animals. I was checking on Iherb (get your discount by using the code WVD466) and I found several options, like Tom’s, Nature’s Gate, Now Solutions, Weleda, Auromere and others. All are between 4-10$, very affordable and also great quality. The two favourite are Xyli White from Now Solutions and Nature’s Gate toothpastes. Both are of the same price 4-5$ for 170 – 180 grams. Xyli White is a transparent gel based on baking…

    The term “hydroponic gardening” may sound fancy or high-tech, but the concept is really pretty simple.

What makes hydroponic gardening different from traditional growing practices? It does not involve the use of soil. Instead, plants are grown using either a nutrient-rich water culture or a soilless medium such as clay aggregate, coconut coir, perlite, sand or gravel. Some of the benefits of hydroponic gardening include higher yields, reduced water…
