organicity.noun

Organic food can be trusted. Why you should only eat organic.

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.

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 whole foods and fresh produce.

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). Not so with foods labeled 'natural'.

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 'doctored' 'food', which is preserved, colored, enhanced, etc., with a selection of chemicals from the plethora available.

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..."....the article.

"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? - away from that which benefits the men and women, and isn't this most always)

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?

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' - only certified organic can be trusted. There are health dangers of Confined Animal Feeding Operations.

Video on organic farming.

And, if you're in the U.S.A. and are for organic foods, this is the time to let the government know at the National Organic Program www.ams.usda.gov/nop.

Before organics, biodynamics; interesting! http://www.biodynamics.com/bda.html

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 un-natural, 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 un-natural, 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 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, www.organicspringtime.com
