Organic Foods (Going Organic: Why You Should and How You Can Switch to Organic Foods Book 2)

If you’re not yet convinced of the dangers of food additives, having read about studies and the history of food additives in our first volume, you will likely be convinced of the dangers as you start to see people more and more taking action to protect themselves from the harmful effects them. The following story of the Virginia PTA is such an example.In the state of Virginia the parent-teacher association adopted a resolution in 2004 describing the dangers they had discovered were apparently caused by artificial food additives. In the beginning of the resolution it states the purpose of the Virginia PTA itself is to promote good health for all children and youth. It also states that the number of students in Virginia’s schools identified as having learning disabilities increased almost by 10% in just the one school year, from 1997 to 1998, which was a greater rate of increase than the increase in the actual student population. Something was terribly wrong. Of great concern to the PTA was the fact that this also represented an enormous growth in educational expenses to the state. The PTA also found that the number of students with • asthma, • allergies, and • other chronic respiratory conditions increased by 4.3% per year. This increase represented an increase of over three billion dollars every single year in healthcare costs! The PTA also determined that this represented 14 million lost days of school!Further evidence linked autistic disorders, upper respiratory conditions, hyperactivity, and ADD/ADHD to the consumption of food additives such as artificial dyes, flavor enhancers, and preservatives.The resolution thus adopted recommends that local PTA’s, and every other person concerned with the well-being and education of Virginia students, study the subject of artificial food additives and the negative effects on the health of children and their ability to learn. They also recommend all state and local governments as well as educational groups work to discourage and prevent the sale and consumption of food and beverages that contain artificial food additives not only during school hours but before and after school as well.The resolution goes even further and encourages parents, students, teachers, and government and school officials to support education on the subjects of nutrition and health so that the negative effects of artificial food additives on a child’s behavior, education, and physical health can be avoided or minimized.The PTA further urges the Virginia Board of Education to continue to look into available and new research on the subject, and research on the effects of artificial food additives just as fast as it comes available, in order to protect Virginia’s public school students from the negative effects. This is also to protect the state of Virginia from the potentially devastating financial impact of epidemic-like problems apparently caused by food additives in the diets of students. The Virginia PTA closes the resolution by encouraging and other PTAs around the country to adopt similar resolutions.Amazing, isn’t it? Read More »

Running On A Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic Performance (Healthy Ways to Lose Weight Book 4)

Running On A Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic Performance (Healthy Ways to Lose Weight Book 4)

Why a Plant Based Diet is Best for Runners (and Everyone Else for That Matter!) In 1977 Jim Fixx published his book entitled The Complete Book of Running, which sold over a million copies and was instrumental in the launch of the American running boom of the late 1970’s. Fixx himself became a fitness icon, and his name became synonymous with the ideal picture of health. It is for this reason that his death at the age of 52 shocked the running world. On July 20th, 1984, Jim Fixx was found on the side of the road dead after suffering a massive heart attack during his morning run on a rural road in Vermont. Fixx had a family predisposition to heart disease – his father died at the age of 43 from a heart attack. During his autopsy it was determined that Fixx had major blockages in three of his arteries, the worst of which was 95% clogged. Despite knowing that he had a hereditary risk, Fixx felt that his compulsive running regime would keep him immune to health issues. Fixx never addressed the issue of diet, and despite having high cholesterol and a bad family history was a devoted meat eater until his premature death. We are just starting to understand the causal link between eating a meat based diet and illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. Exercise alone is not a wellness guarantee, but running and eating a plant based diet will arguably get you to the highest point of personal health you might ever hope to achieve. Running on a Plant Based Diet: How Eating Unprocessed Organic Food Can Improve Athletic PerformanceThis book is divided into two sections. The first section will outline the argument for why a plant based diet is preferable to a meat based diet for general health. The second section will explore areas of interest for the plant based runner, including: Debunking the Plant Diet Myths Plant Based Sources of Carbohydrates, Proteins & Fats Plant Based Smoothies Suggestions Plant Based Meal Suggestions for Training and RecoveryAnd More! Switch to a Plant Based Diet Today for Better Running and Better Health! Read More »

Organic Manifesto: How Organic Food Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe

Organic Manifesto: How Organic Food Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe

Drawing on findings from leading health researchers as well as conversations with both chemical and organic farmers from coast to coast, Maria Rodale's Organic Manifesto irrefutably outlines the unacceptably high cost of chemical farming on our health and our environment. She traces the genesis of chemical farming and the rise of the immense companies that profit from it, bringing to light the government’s role in allowing such practices to flourish. She further explains that modern organic farming would not only help reverse climate change by reducing harmful carbon emissions and soil depletion, but would also improve the quality of the food we eat, reduce diseases from asthma to cancer, and ensure a better quality of life in farming communities nationwide.  For every parent wondering how best to safeguard the health and safety of her children; for every environmentalist in search of a solution to the worsening crisis that afflicts our land, air, and waters; for every shopper who questions whether it is worth it to pay more for organic, Maria Rodale offers straightforward answers and a single, definitive course of action: We must demand organic now.

The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World

The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World

In 1987, John Robbins published Diet for a New America, which was an early version of this book, and he started the food revolution. He continues to work tirelessly to promote conscious food choices more than 20 years later. First published in 2001, The Food Revolution is still one of the most frequently cited and talked about books of the food-politics revolution. It was one of the very first books to discuss the negative health effects of eating genetically modified foods and animal products of all kinds, to expose the dangers inherent in our factory farming system, and to advocate a complete plant-based diet. The book garnered endorsements by everyone from Paul Hawken to Neal Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson to Julia Butterfly Hill. After ten years in print, The Food Revolution is timelier than ever--and a very compelling read. The 10th anniversary edition has an updated, new contemporary look and a new introduction by the author. Read More »

The original organic coffee. Hand grown on family farms. Coffee the way nature intended. Cafe Altura coffees are organically grown at altitudes above 3000 feet on small family owned farms from around the world. The coffee tree grows according to its natural cycle, without the use of harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides. By employing companion planting, compost and shade trees, our farmers create a balanced, healthy and self-sustaining growing environment that replenishes the topsoil and provides a winter home to many species of migratory birds. Cafe Altura buys from the same farms each year to insure the integrity and quality of our coffees. Special harvesting selects ripened cherries washed in rain water, sun dried, hand sorted, then air-roasted for a rich, smooth taste. A Story as Old as the Land: When coffee was discovered a thousand years ago, it was a preciously guarded secret, so valuable the beans were used as currency. In 1980, a group of coffee lovers in Ojai, California heard of a family farm in the mountains of Mexico which grew coffee naturally, the same way it had been when first found in the wilds. Setting off on an adventure, our coffee lovers found a place where self-sustaining agriculture produced a smooth and aromatic coffee with no trace of bitterness. They came back and started Cafe Altura, the original coffee, so you can taste coffee the way nature intended. USDA organic. Certified organic by Stellar Certification Services. Read More »
