Organic food can be trusted. Only eat organic if you're concerned about continuous optimum health. Some locally produced gardens, though not certified to be organic, may be fine, if you know the producer doesn't use chemical fertilizers, often made from petroleum and doesn't use chemical sprays, again, often from petroleum.

Those who are assaulting us with terminology designed to deceive are now trying to muscle in the term 'natural', all to mislead the public, of course in hopes of maintaining sales. The word natural on a label denotes nothing important to food and health at all.

But even junk foods can be labeled organic. And they are organic. But even if they are organic, they still can be highly processed, sugar, white flour, potato chips, corn chips, donuts, waffles, sugar-added cereals, pizza and frozen dinners; eat them only sparingly and only when your health is optimum. Try as much as possible to stick to foods and produce that is fresh.

The regulations for Certified Organic are incredibly strict for growing, harvesting, land use and management, audit tracking, etc., for organic produce coming from organic farms to grocery stores. All foods considered organic must be free of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms which degrade food by changing it in negative ways that show up soon), grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides not to be used, nor any of the other 'cides'. Not so with foods labeled 'natural'. See Environmental Working Group (ewg.org) for more.


Generally anyone going into organic farming doesn't do it for just money, as quicker and more money can be made with far less meticulousness-by growing conventional (non organic) fertilized, sprayed, enhanced, flavored, colored, genetically modified, irradiated (exposed to radiation), artificially flavored & colored (often with coal tar) 'doctored' 'food', which is preserved, enhanced, etc., with a selection of chemicals from the plethora available, of which some 2,700 new ones are added to the list annually. Know what you are eating and what stuff does to you over the long term.

Organic farming can feed the world.."Study after study shows that organic techniques can provide much more food per acre in developing countries than conventional chemical based agriculture..."....organicconsumers.org

"It's a myth that organic farming is inefficient, claims Rod MacRae a food production expert formerly with the Toronto Public Health Department. He calculates that on average, yields are only 10% less than conventional agriculture. That result is remarkable since there is virtually no government funded research or support in Canada or the U.S.A for improving organic farming methods, unlike the tens of billions spent on conventional and biotech farming."....Sustainable Times Magazine, Summer 2000. Why? Why? Why? Whose in bed with the fed? And why do governments fall fast only in the wrong direction? Have they without public knowledge, put investments into poisonous chemicals and chemicalized farming and away from that which has proven benefits for humans?

Why is it the government skirts funding for organic farming, while pouring oodles of dollars extracted from the men and women of the nation into inferior alternatives? Like, what's going on here behind the scenes that they are keeping secret from us? Why avoid investing in organic farming and instead investing in companies providing the poisoning of society? On a whole, is there more healthy food around?

New scientific reasons to only.eat organic foods; the term 'natural' does not in any way mean organic; avoid foods that con you with the label 'natural'. Certified organic can be trusted. There are health dangers of Confined Animal Feeding Operations.

Organic watermelon?."If you research carefully, you will learn that, technically, there cannot be such a thing as a certified organic seedless watermelon. Why? A certified organic seedless watermelon is a genetically altered watermelon. The genetic alteration is done chemically.

"To create a seedless watermelon, seed producers treat natural watermelon seed with Colchicines, a chromosome-altering chemical. Colchicines changes the chromosome number in the seeds from 2 to 4. Once this is done, the seeds are pollinated with the natural 2 chromosome watermelon. The result is an unnatural, genetically modified watermelon with 3 chromosomes.

"Continue your research and you will learn, as I did, that plants must have an even number of chromosomes to reproduce. Since the unnatural, genetically modified watermelon now has 3 chromosomes, it cannot form seeds. You get a seedless melon.

"A watermelon that is touted as certified organic seedless watermelon may be grown organically, but chemicals were used in the production of the seeds. You will have to decide your own definition of 'organic' to decide whether or not you want the melon.

"If you decide that certified organic seedless watermelon is not organic enough for your tastes, you might want to grow a container or row of your own organic watermelon. An easy, delicious melon to grow on your patio is 'sugar baby' and yes, organic seed companies such as Main Street Seed and Supply 
.(mainstreetseedandsupply.com).have certified organic seeds for this watermelon. It produces round watermelons, about 7" to 8.5" and weighing 8 to 12 pounds. The name tells you what to expect. It's probably worth the seeds!"....Anna Hart, organicspringtime.com
