During the first week in March 2014, while sailing a small catamaran (Prindle 18-2) in the southern end of San Diego Bay near Imperial Beach, the boat got stuck on a muddy shallow bank. While trying to free it, a sudden wind coming off the Pacific flipped the boat over, landing it on its side. […]
A customer recently emailed these questions regarding the proper storage of Seagate supplements in their home: Why do the products say cool dry place but “do not refrigerate”?

The organic farming industry has been booming throughout the European Union (EU), which has prompted the governing body to reassess organic rules and policies in the region. The European Commission says that the region’s organic market has quadrupled in size during the past decade, so rules need to be updated and adjusted to accommodate future developments and challenges.

The human body was designed to be in motion, and even just 30 minutes a day can make a huge difference. That gives you 23 hours and 30 minutes to […]
You can’t flip on the news these days without hearing about the devastating effects of climate change. Glaciers are melting, natural disasters are becoming more frequent, and wildlife species are losing their habitats every year. Not only does climate change affect these aspects of our environment, but it also threatens the world’s food supply. Long-term […]
No matter how you consume it, seaweed is a great addition to any diet. It supplies the body with essential nutrients, helps balance the body’s functioning, and provides a much-needed boost of energy.
Olive oil has gotten a nasty reputation lately, and rightfully so. It has been touted as a staple of healthy Mediterranean diets, beauty products, and even religious rituals. But as olive oil has grown in popularity and mass production has taken over, olive oil has become less pure, thereby losing its virginity. After a 2010 […]
