Do you eat real, organic food? If you do, you must be a jerk, according to a new ridiculous 'scientific study' that most likely has financial ties to factory farm corporations and junkfood makers across the planet.

Instead of discussing the wide variety of health benefits of eating real food - the kind made without harmful pesticides that actually make you stupid, the researchers use participants to show how 'eating organic can make you a jerk'. Now spanning the mainstream media headlines, the 'scientists' use the fact that those who eat organic are 'stingier with their volunteering' time as one of the reasons as to why it could 'make you a jerk'. What the scientists do not discuss, as it is much more serious and could potentially change the way that the public eats (and spends their money), is the serious illnesses associated with eating non-organic junk, almost always laced with pesticides and oftentimes genetically modified.

It took Richmond health food manufacturer John Roulac, the founder of Nutiva, a few years to realize that when it comes to winning the war to legalize growing cannabis in this country, market development was more important than lobbying the government.

He's turned hemp seeds, among other ingredients, into a $70 million-a-year business. People aren't buying them for their psychoactive powers - Roulac says they don't have any - but rather as what is called a super food. But he has to source them in Canada, because growing industrial hemp in the United States is illegal.

An infectious brain disease that has been killing deer, elk and moose both in the wild and on "captive farms" continues to stalk the land, expanding its domain to 23 states and two Canadian provinces since it was first identified in captive mule deer.

Known as chronic wasting disease, or CWD, it has baffled scientists for decades. Where did it come from, and why is it spreading across the landscape? What health risks might it pose to humans who eat parts of infected animals? And can cattle get it from infected deer, elk, and moose, thus introducing it into the human food chain?

Judge Napolitano weighed in on the White House's "nudge squad" this morning on Fox and Friends. The team of government experts will encourage you to do things like pay your back taxes, save more money, eat better, and exercise more.

The idea actually cracked Judge Napolitano up. "I'm laughing cause what will they think of next?! The government can't deliver the mail and they want to tell us to fix the broken screens in our house and clean our attics and change the oil in our cars? These are not functions of government." "If the Constitution protects anything ... it protects the right to be different. We don't need the government in our faces telling us how to live," Napolitano said.

Whole Foods Market, the upscale grocery store sometimes derided as 'Whole Paycheck' for its prices, is planning to launch a new chain of lower-priced stores for people who can't otherwise afford to buy its premium and organic food.

The Austin-based company said on Wednesday that stores in the new format would offer a "curated" selection and have a simpler design to cater to people who want Whole Foods quality without paying Whole Food prices, particularly customers in their 20s and 30s.

Americans are slowly waking up to the sad fact that much of the food sold in the US is far inferior to the same foods sold in other nations. In fact, many of the foods you eat are BANNED in other countries.

Seeing how the overall health of Americans is so much lower than other industrialized countries, you can't help but wonder whether toxic foods such as these might play a role in our skyrocketing disease rates.

Pesticides are designed to kill, although the mode of action they use to put the stranglehold on pests varies. Whether it's nerve gas-like neurological disruption, the unbalancing of key hormones, or the stunting of a plant's ability to absorb ...

Pesticides are also blamed for diminishing mineral levels in foods. Agrochemical supporters tend to fall back on a "the dose makes the poison" theory, assuming that small exposures aren't harmful. Increasingly, though, independent scientists are debunking that belief, even proving that incredibly tiny doses could set a person up for health problems later in life. Luckily, eating organic, less processed foods can cut back on your pesticide exposure.

Is your favorite organic company owned by a huge corporation or is it truly organic and independent? As our favorite organic companies have grown, many of them have also been gobbled up by huge corporations.

While most organic companies pledge to continue their high standards of organic purity upon being bought out, it doesn't always work that way in practice. For example Silk, a popular almond milk brand, actually switched from non-GMO to GMO soybeans without telling their customer base upon being purchased by WhiteWave, a spin-off company of the massive pro-GMO corporation Dean Foods. At the end of the day, buying organic is always a smart decision. But as the Silk and other stories show, buying small and local is usually the best decision.
