FDA is attempting to limit access to compounded medicines

The FDA is trying to take away the ability of Naturopathic Doctors to write prescriptions for use of compounded medicines in their offices and in interstate commerce. Compounding medications have been around for a long time and have been proven to be very safe and effective.  However, since this is a viable alternative to pharmaceutical […]

Big tractor – little tractor, we pull weeds – they spray ’em

A farmer named John from Tennessee who operates a large family farm responded an earlier post – What is Pesticide and GMO Drift – by stating “What about thousands of acres of Corn? And if you waited to pull the weeds at that size you have suffered a sizable yield loss already.” Another farmer John […]

Nathan - This is a very interesting article but there r many things in this farm that r also not environmentaly friendly I will with the older tractor that is used to cultivate which is way less fuel efficient then modern tractors an also has no emmsions on the exhaust which can cause ozone depletion by excessive carbon an then there is no GPS which is used for efficiency to make less trips across the feild which entails using less fuel an causing less exhaust gas also in a cultivation style farming how is this farm compating soil erosion an movoment of nutrients to streams an river which can also kill ur fish friends u were talking about in the article all I have to say there is no perfect way to farm just as there are no perfect people in the world before you go bashing other farms u should take a look at urs first

Richard (Founder) - Nathan,
Just a quick note — that paragraph was one sentence with 123 words!! I have never seen such a long sentence in my life. It was painful to read with all the grammar and spelling errors.
Anyway, we got your point. Here is a response:

1. We farm in a desert. There are no rivers or streams. Anyway we are not using chemicals. So there is nothing to contaminate.
2. That old tractor is a relic which we fire up once in a while.
3. We don’t need GPS on a 250 acre farm. We can see the end of our rows.
4. The tomato rows were planted fairly straight without GPS. It is not as critical as straight rows of corn.
5. Methane is the real culprit causing ozone depletion, not carbon from tractors. Do you have any cows?
6. The Case Magnum in the 3rd photo, even with the smaller 6.7 liter diesel still gives off carbon because carbon is the end-product of combustion of fossil fuels — even when the exhaust is at its cleanest — water vapor and CO2.
7. Carbon is what is screwing up our oceans causing their acidification and resulting destruction (Bleaching) of reefs and change in seawater composition. This is killing off a lot of species and destroying reefs around the world.
8. Debate is not bashing if it is done correctly. You can take a side of an issue and discuss it rationally without the adjectives flying.
9. We use mostly hand-labor to walk our vegetable fields. Zero emissions.
10. If you look very closely at the second picture, you will see that all the plants are fed off drip irrigation. There is no other way to farm in a desert. There is no run-off from a drip system.

Anyway to get to the point — If you are arguing that a new giant tractor having a somewhat more efficient diesel engine compensates for your operation, that is likely spreading GMO Round-up ready seeds, herbicides and pesticides which end up in food, and that is environmentally friendly, I think you missed the entire point of this blog.
Thank you for posting your comment/sentence.
We enjoy a good debate.

Health food products coming from China, beware

That Great Wall of China is really meant to keep U.S. products out. Welcome to the world of tainted baby formula, dog food, toxic toys, industrial farm chemicals, corruption, substitution of phony products, and the most polluted air and water on the planet. “Health food” raw materials have been coming to the U.S. from China.

Mary - This is so well-put:
“So, the next best thing to do is say good-bye to our polluted trade-protectionist friends across the Pacific, and go swimming with sharks.”

..and I’m SO thankful for your commitment to manufacturing quality, all-natural products. I’ve shared your catalogs and website with many people I’ve known who suffer with everything from sinus infections to high blood sugar, along with three area health food store owners with the hopes they’ll give your awesome products a try. We love your Olive Leaf homeopathic line since first ordering them after seeing Richard on Know The Cause a few years ago and would NEVER consider switching to a nasal spray manufactured in China (Nasal cancer, anyone?)

As an article from 2013 states:
“…by definition, a China-grown “organic” food or superfood can be irrigated with toxic chemical runoff, bathed in chemical plant fallout, and grown in heavy metals-laced soil, and still be “certified organic” and sold at Whole Foods [in the U.S.]!”

No thanks, China. And you can keep your contaminated, inhumanely-raised chickens, too! Take heed, America: this is what a nation quickly becomes when their leaders outlaw the One, True, Creator God and live according to their own ideas of right vs. wrong. Their only real hope for a brighter future is in Christ.
Maybe we should all start replying to China’s emails with this:

God bless all your efforts, Seagate World.

What is Pesticide drift and GMO drift and how to control them

The issue of pesticide migration from farms that use them onto farms that do not has become an important problem in modern agriculture.  Equally important is the problem of drift or migration of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) from farms that utilize them, onto neighboring farms that do not. When farms were all spread out in […]

Sally - Sheesh, every time I posted on FB my post was deleted?! Anyway, I really just wanted to thank you for your integrity and spreading the truth!

Richard (Founder) - Hi Sally, I did see some of your posts on Facebook. So they seem to be going through on our end. Once in a while we have to ban someone that is being abusive (ie. telling people to die) and delete their comments. If someone is commenting on their comments, that could take down their replies as part of the string. We appreciate your support.

We have learned a lot from these recent posts — especially about the angry farmers who like their GMO seeds because it raises their yields and profits. They don’t care about the GMOs and the ever-increasing amounts of pesticides necessary to control the same insects that required much lower doses in the past. It is scary how dependent they have become for their Monsanto seeds and pesticides. Thanks, Richard
