Increasingly, when Americans "dare" to color outside the lines of government food regulation, those who seek to rule us label them extremists and, now, even "agri-terrorists."

As noted by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper, officials in more than one state have turned into food Nazis: It looks like Michigan is not the only state with a Department of Agriculture that is adamant about the best interests of their citizens. Residents in Pennsylvania can now breathe a little bit easier since an illegal enterprise has been shut down.

Cinnamon is a powerful spice that has been used medicinally around the world for thousands of years. It is still used daily in many cultures because of its widespread health benefits, not to mention its distinctly sweet.

The unique smell, color, and flavor of cinnamon is due to the oily part of the tree that it grows from. The health benefits of cinnamon come from the bark of the Cinnamomum tree. This bark contains several special compounds which are responsible for its many health promoting properties- including cinnamaldehyde, cinnamic acid, and cinnamate. Researchers have concluded that the health benefits of cinnamon can be obtained in the form of its pure bark, essential oils, in ground spice form (which is bark powder), or in extract form when its special phenolic compounds, flavonoids, and antioxidants are isolated.

Make this delicious ranch dressing using cultured ingredients. Perfect on a salad or as a dip.

Use within 1 week if buttermilk is made from raw milk. It is normal for the dressing to get thinner the longer it is stored, so making a fairly thick dressing is recommended if not using right away.

In June, Dr. Barbara Bowman, a high-ranking official within the Centers for Disease Control, unexpectedly departed the agency, two days after information came to light indicating that she had been communicating regularly with a leading Coca-Cola advocate.

Now, more emails suggest that another veteran CDC official has similarly close ties to the global soft drink giant. Michael Pratt, Senior Advisor for Global Health in the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at the CDC, has a history of promoting and helping lead research funded by Coca-Cola. Pratt also works closely with the nonprofit corporate interest group set up by Coca-Cola called the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), emails obtained through Freedom of Information requests show.

Fried foods damage your body and brain in many different ways, and it's not just a long term consequence, but a short term detriment as well. Just as a car needs good clean oil to run efficiently and not break down.

You simply can't lie to yourself much with fried food because the ill effects are just too obvious. Simply grab some belly fat or pinch an inch on a hip or thigh, and then try to convince yourself it's okay. Plus, obesity basically means people are storing fried foods and carbohydrates as body fat, and for about a third of Americans, it's like carry-on luggage you can't set down, or at least not until you sit down. Face the facts:

As companies shun genetically modified ingredients, they're buying more sugar extracted from sugar cane rather than beets. Sugar beet farmers are thinking of going back to conventional beets.

It's all because about eight years ago, nearly all the farmers who grow sugar beets in the United States decided to start growing genetically modified versions of their crop. The GMO beets, which can tolerate the weedkiller glyphosate, otherwise known as Roundup, made it easier for them to get rid of weeds. They really didn't expect any problems. Just in the past two years, though, that's changed. Many food companies have decided to label their products as non-GMO.

Under the cover of darkness, just hours after Hillary Clinton was handed a get-out-of-jail-free card by the FBI for committing felony crimes, the Senate quietly voted 63-30 to preempt state law in direct violation of the Tenth Amendment.

Senator Jeff Merkley wasn't afraid to call a spade a spade in the aftermath of the treasonous vote, which was further buried in the news cycle by Obama's latest attempt at race-baiting in order to abolish the Second Amendment. Merkley told the media that the so-called Roberts-Stabenow Bill, also known as the Monsanto DARK Act 2.0, is a farce, and will do nothing to protect consumers who want to know what they're eating.

With temperatures forecast into the 90's today, I thought it would be a good day to serve up this Confetti Ice Wreath to our chickens. It's not only an excellent way to help your chickens cool down in the summer.

Save up those partial bags of frozen vegetables and leftover canned vegetables. Keep freezer burned fruit and those cranberries left over from Thanksgiving. Don't toss out bruised blueberries or mushy raspberries. Collect everything in a freezer bag until you are ready to make your wreath to make an easy, inexpensive summer treat for your chickens.

There are *substantial gaps* in what is known about the health and environmental effects of many of the materials used in food packaging in your supermarket.

While storing food in containers dates back thousands of years, and food has been sold in bottles since the 1700s and cans since the 1800s, what might be considered the modern age of food packaging began in the 1890s when crackers were first sold in sealed waxed paper bags inside a paperboard box.

WASHINGTON -- Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota will support a compromise food labeling bill that, if passed and signed into law, will require disclosure on food packages of the presence of genetically modified organisms.

Both voted against an earlier labeling law which did not provide for mandatory national on-package GMO disclosure. The new legislation "will help consumers know what's in their food, which is why I'll be supporting it," Franken said in a statement, "It's not a perfect bill, but unlike the previous version of this legislation - which I opposed - this compromise includes a mandatory federal labeling standard, which I strongly believe is necessary for this to work. The National Academy of Sciences and other respected scientific bodies - that have thoroughly studied the research on this issue - has said that GMO foods are safe to eat, but we should give people the information they want about their food. I believe this accomplishes that."
