Record organic sales in the United States totaled nearly $50 billion in 2017 according to the Organic Trade Association. Although organic food still represents only 5.5 percent of food sold, its year-over-year growth has been meteoric.

This has resulted in organic growers and food companies that, although technically adhering to the definition of organic - no chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics or pesticides - are a far cry from the idealism and high standards with which the movement began.

A breakthrough nutritional study conducted at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont and published in PLoS ONE has found that just 248mg of magnesium per day leads to an astounding reversal of depression symptoms in study subjects.

"New clinical research results show magnesium is effective at addressing symptoms and is safer and easier on the wallet than prescription therapies," reports Science Daily, echoing the reporting of Natural News from over a decade ago. Today, even mainstream science is now confirming that magnesium is a safe, affordable and effective treatment for depression.

Injecting particles into the atmosphere to cool the planet and counter the warming effects of climate change would do nothing to offset the crop damage from rising global temperatures.

By analyzing the past effects of Earth-cooling volcanic eruptions, and the response of crops to changes in sunlight, the team concluded that any improvements in yield from cooler temperatures would be negated by lower productivity due to reduced sunlight. The findings have important implications for our understanding of solar geoengineering, one proposed method for helping humanity manage the impacts of global warming.

When the Center for Environmental Health released test results showing that Pepsi intentionally covered up the presence of high levels of 4-Mel in its popular soft drinks in 2013, the company denied both the presence of this chemical in its beverages...

And the fact that it was dangerous. 4-Mel, which is short for 4-Methylimidazole, is a compound that is formed in the manufacturing of caramel coloring, and is a known carcinogen. Since then, the drinks maker has fought against complying with California state requirements to place a cancer warning label on the beverages that contain the ingredient, which include not only Pepsi, but also Diet Pepsi and Pepsi One.

Antibiotics fight against bacteria that can lead to severe diseases or death, so they are lifesavers. Back in 1909 in search of a treatment for syphilis, it was created the first synthetic antibiotic, Salvarsan.

This antibiotic was very helpful, and it was used until the 40s when it was replaced with penicillin. Numerous antibiotics have been used to treat different diseases. Revealing antibiotics meant a huge advance in modern medicine.

There is no denying that Girl Scout Cookies are delicious but when you find out what's actually in them, you might think twice about eating them ever again.

I used to be a Girl Scout and if I knew what I know now about food and nutrition, I would have boycotted selling them until the ingredients changed. We all know cookies are cookies and they are a treat that isn't meant to be "healthy." But, the cookies I like to eat have basic ingredients - flour, sugar, butter or coconut oil, baking soda and eggs. If you've been to any grocery store lately, you'll see that there are tons of options that are just that. So, why is it that the Girl Scouts get little girls to hawk these cookies year after year that are filled with artificial and questionable ingredients?

How an idealistic M.B.A. used new age notions (Shared Values Thought, anyone?) to rev up an old-line business and turn a humble commodity into a premium product.

At the mill, a layer of pinkish salt covers every surface; lick your lips and you can taste it. In his dusty coveralls and hardhat, Boyd Jewkes, the mill's team leader, surveys the rock salt clattering by on a conveyor belt and grabs a fist-size chunk. Unlike the others, it's almost clear; it glistens when he holds it up to the light. Jewkes throws it down a chute to separate it from the more dense rocks.

Many people are curious about the details of my diet. I'm often asked about the how, what and when of my eating patterns.

Yet my diet isn't 100% rigid. And the reality is that my life - perhaps like yours - is busy and sometimes unpredictable. We often travel for work or to visit family. And when we're on the road, at some point or another, I am inevitably offered a drink.

In rural Nebraska, a determined couple are among the last holdouts to the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which they say could pose a threat to an important underground water source.

The cornfields of Nebraska sweep over gentle hills, disappearing at the horizon. To the modern farmer they are mathematical creations: the calculus of total acres, fertilizer per acre, inches of rainfall, tons of herbicide, radius of the giant pivot irrigator, and square feet of crops lost at the edges. Rows are planted with computer-driven precision; corn is sold when the financial analytics say the price is right.
