If you haven’t noticed by now, organic is under constant attack in the media for one simple reason — healthy, organic food has become a serious threat to the business model of Big Ag and their chemical-laden GMOs.

That is why you will see pieces such as the recent Wall Street Journal op-ed The Organic Industry is Lying to You  and The Boston Globe’s article on agriculture which tells you to “learn to love” GMOs.

While critics will often say that organic is a waste of money and that the nutritional differences between organic and conventional are negligible, here are three reasons why you should completely dismiss their words — glyphosate, atrazine and chlorpyrifos. Read more »


Potatoes are on the Non-GMO Project’s High Risk List – What Does That Mean and What Do Shoppers Need to Know?

Potatoes are on the Non-GMO Project's High Risk List - What Does That Mean and What Do Shoppers Need to Know?

In the most recent issue of Organic Insider, I discuss the decision by the Non-GMO Project to place potatoes on its High-Risk list. Joining soy, corn, canola and a few others, this is by no means a prominent distinction. Rather, it is something that every crop should seek to avoid because it means that the […]

Joining soy, corn, canola and a few others, this is by no means a prominent distinction. Rather, it is something that every crop should seek to avoid because it means that the likelihood of consuming a genetically-modified version of this crop in the U.S. is extremely high. Read more »


Another Reason to Eat Organic – Lower Your Risk of Cancer by Up to 25%

Another Reason to Eat Organic – Lower Your Risk of Cancer by Up to 25%

In the latest President’s Cancer Panel report, it was found that 41% of Americans are going to get cancer and 21% of Americans are going to die from cancer. What makes these numbers even more sobering is that this data was from a decade ago, and I have heard doctors say that they now believe […]

In the latest President’s Cancer Panel report, it was found that 41% of Americans are going to get cancer and 21% of Americans are going to die from cancer.

What makes these numbers even more sobering is that this data was from a decade ago, and I have heard doctors say that they now believe a minimum of 50% of the population will get cancer at some point in their lives.

Given how deeply cancer has permeated our society, it would seem to make sense that people should be doing whatever they can to avoid contracting this deadly disease.

And according to a recent study out of France, as reported in JAMA Internal Medicine, eating as much organic food as possible is an important strategy to accomplish this. Read more »


These Two GMO Experiments are Beyond Frightening

These Two GMO Experiments are Beyond Frightening

With the ag-biotech industry having made incredible progress brainwashing consumers and politicians into thinking that GMO foods are perfectly safe, the fact remains that no independent, long-term safety studies of these foods have ever been conducted on humans. And because the general public has been falsely convinced into believing that GMOs are safe and government […]

With the ag-biotech industry having made incredible progress brainwashing consumers and politicians into thinking that GMO foods are perfectly safe, the fact remains that no independent, long-term safety studies of these foods have ever been conducted on humans.

And because the general public has been falsely convinced into believing that GMOs are safe and government oversight has been minimal, scientists are pushing genetic engineering into other areas that could spell potential disaster for our planet and our survival. Read more »

Most people recognize Foodstirs as the company that has completely transformed the organic baking category.

But with its latest move, the company will soon be known as a true trailblazer throughout the entire organic industry.

High Levels of Lead and Cadmium Found in Organic Baby and Toddler Foods — What to Do About It

One of the perceptions of organic food in the marketplace is that it is free from all heavy metals, and as long as a food product contains the USDA organic seal, there is nothing to worry about. I wish both were true, but unfortunately, they are not. A recent investigation from Consumer Reports found concerning […]

One of the perceptions of organic food in the marketplace is that it is free from all heavy metals, and as long as a food product contains the USDA organic seal, there is nothing to worry about.

I wish both were true, but unfortunately, they are not.

A recent investigation from Consumer Reports found concerning levels of heavy metals — cadmium, lead, and/or inorganic arsenic — in many baby and toddler food products, a good number of which were from organic brands.

While organic production prohibits the use of GMOs or super-toxic pesticides, such as glyphosate or atrazine, the logical question is: how did these heavy metals get into these organic products in the first place? Read more »
