When most people think of the reason to drink organic milk, the first thing that pops into their mind is the desire to avoid hormonal milk – milk that has been produced from cows who have been injected with synthetic growth hormones.

(If you are unfamiliar with the serious health risks of hormonal milk, click HERE.)

Yet, a recently released study gives us an additional reason as to why we should drink organic milk.

In research published in PLOS One, the scientists of the study reported that organic milk contained 62% more omega-3 fatty acids and 25% fewer omega-6s. Read More »

Farmageddon, a Must-Watch Movie, is Now Available on DVD

Written by Max Goldberg on April 27, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

If you’re a new reader to my blog, you may not be aware of a very important documentary called Farrmageddon.

Last year, I wrote several posts about this movie and also screened it for a fundraiser that I held to raise money for The Center for Food Safety.

Farmageddon exposes the USDA’s brutal crackdown on farmers selling raw milk and how the agency’s heavy-handed, corrupt and politically-motivated ways have destroyed the lives of small, organic farmers trying to do the right thing. Read More »

My Latest Concoction – Organic Black Sesame Seed Milk

Written by Max Goldberg on April 20, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

Earlier this year, I wrote a post talking about the tremendous health benefits of black sesame seeds.

I love putting them on quinoa, millet, and on my salads, and they add a whole new dimension to whatever food that I am eating.

Since Brazil nut milk and cashew milk are two drinks that I make quite often, I started asking myself “What if I made a milk out of organic black sesame seeds?”

My immediate thought was that the taste would be too harsh or too strong, and that I would need to use a lot of honey or organic palm sugar to even it out.

Over the past week or so, I have been experimenting with black sesame seed milk and much to my surprise, I have been thrilled with the results. Read More »

Organic Milk – The Most Important Product a Family Can Buy

Written by Max Goldberg on January 16, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

For people who are new to organic or have very limited financial means to buy organic, the one thing that I always say is the following:

The absolute number one priority in your household should be organic milk for your kids.

Even if a family thinks that organic food is out of their budget, organic milk cannot be compromised under any condition.

Organic milk is about the health of the kids, and that comes before everything else.

Approximately 20% of the milk in the U.S. is hormonal milk. But what exactly is hormonal milk? Read More »

The Impending National Advertising Campaign for Organic – Why It is So Crucial

Written by Max Goldberg on April 18, 2011. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

When I attended the Deepak Chopra event at ABC Home on Friday night, I had an opportunity to ask a question that has been stirring in my mind ever since Expo West – Why isn’t there a national advertising/branding campaign for organic?

From the numbers I saw at Expo West, the Florida orange juice industry ($1.3b) spends $16m on advertising, the beef industry ($30b) spends $42m on advertising, and the milk industry ($27b) spends $10m on advertising.

Yet, the organic food industry ($25b) spends practically nothing. This makes no sense whatsoever. Read More »
