We are buying organic, eating in season and buying locally. Our meat is grassfed, our bread in homebaked and I feel good about what my family is eating.

There are articles all over the Internet right now about "fake organic" food from China. Wanting to keep you informed, I read through many of them. The problem was, they all seemed to quote other sources.

First of all, I was surprised to learn how much food the US imports from China: China is the third-largest source of food imports according to a 2009 report by the Economic Research Service (ERS). For example, 60 percent of our apple juice and over half of the garlic we use in the US is from China. The ERS claims that food safety is a critical issue with Chinese imports but that "there are no simple solutions to addressing the safety hazards since they appear to occur in many different types of foods at all links in the supply chain." Reading through the USDA article "Imports From China and Food Safety Issues" is alarming. The FDA regularly refuses shipments from China because of filth, unsafe additives, veterinary drug residues and mislabeling. Filth violations and unsafe additives are the most common violations in Chinese imports and reading what constitutes "filth" is only recommended to those with strong stomachs.

Over the past couple of years, I had the unpleasant experience of having bloodwork done to confirm that I am gluten intolerant, only to have it come back and say, "Nope, you're just crazy."

It's happened to scores of other people, who pass the test for the anti-gliadin antibodies but still know that their health issues directly correlate with what they eat. Now we may know why. The tests were right. I'm not gluten intolerant. I'm poison intolerant.

The average American eats more than 33 pounds of cheese a year. This is according to Neal Barnard, physician and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. And that's a problem, he says.

I'd never before thought in terms of dairy products being addictive (with the personal exception of milk chocolate, I admit). Barnard explains that dairy protein - specifically a protein called casein - has opiate molecules built in. When babies nurse, he notes, they're getting dosed with a mild drug: "Milk contains opiates that reward the baby for nursing."

If you needed any more proof of the (literally) poisonous effects of bauxite mining in Kuantan, here it comes: studies done by the Malaysian Fisheries Department have shown that local fish has been contaminated with heavy metals.

The department's team took samples from 64 specimens belonging to 25 fish species from several rivers, including Sungai Balok, Sg Penggorak, Sg Riau, Sg Mabuk, Sg Padan, Empangan Kobalt, Kuala Penur and Tanjong Lumpur. They then tested the fish for a variety of metals in their systems, including aluminum, iron, magnesium, zinc, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, copper, arsenic and selenium. The levels of contamination the analysis detected were relatively low, according to the department, but it was still at concentrations that was pushing the maximum acceptable levels as specified by the country's Food Act.

Magnesium is one of those supplements that is very well known for its benefits throughout the natural health community. Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical processes in the body.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that magnesium supplementation and correction of deficiency has improved the aforementioned conditions. The problem with this essential mineral is that most people do not have sufficient levels for optimal health. A gradual depletion of nutrients from our soils has left many vegetables with lower levels of magnesium. Another factor that contributes to magnesium deficiency is that it often is depleted by various common conditions (i.e. IBS, Crohn's disease) and medications (i.e. proton pump inhibitors, diuretics).

But what offends ME is that the flu shot was only a pathetic 23% effective in 2014-2015 and the general public will still willingly back up the vaccine.

Even though the facts remain that the flu shot risk carries tremendous risk and injures countless victims, people still back it up and stick out their arms. And even though the flu MIST is a LIVE VIRUS and has the ability to shed and infect others with the flu (For up to 21 days!), people STILL run into the pharmacy and open their nostrils!

Before you can hope to make it as a speculator and start slingin' barrels for big money, you've got to understand exactly what's gushing forth from the earth's crust.

Today's post is actually about edible oils. Well, they're all technically edible - they can all be swallowed and digested - but as for being palatable, let alone healthful? That remains to be seen. Not all oils are created equal, especially given the fact that most of the ones people use nowadays are actually created in an industrial laboratory. No oil "exists naturally," mind you. Olive oil isn't harvested by leaving open containers under leaking, dripping olives on the branch, nor is that liquid sloshing around inside a coconut pure oil. I'm not trying to disparage processing in and of itself.

A bizarre spill of Skittles highway on a rural Wisconsin highway has placed the candy's manufacturer in the uncomfortable position of explaining why its products are finding their way into cattle feed.

The unexpected mishap ended up uncovering that farmers have been feeding candy to their cows for years as a way to cut corners and save money, at the cost to the quality of the beef as well as both cow and human health. Police, in talking to the cattle ranchers, soon learned that Skittles and other sweets are being commonly used in the area in order to "fatten up" cows as they serve as an inexpensive source of carbohydrates. A former farmer in the area told a local CNN affiliate that candy makers and bakeries often sell their rejected or defective candy products to be used as cattle feed, meaning that the problem is larger than just unscrupulous ranchers.
