Organic Fruit

December 3rd, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Organic

Throughout the history of the world, food has been grown using techniques described as organic. But in the last 100 years, conventional farming methods have increasingly relied on the use manufactured compounds such as pesticides and fertilizers, as well as using genetically modified seed. Organic fruits refer to produce grown using natural techniques with no chemicals or with only organic compounds.

Many countries have strict certification rules for labeling fruits and vegetables as organic. The United States, Canada and the European Union are some examples. In the United States, certification is outlined by the state departments of agriculture and conditions include no irradiation, no genetic modification, and most pesticides and fertilizers prohibited. The certification process can be quite costly, particularly for small farmers, which is partly why conventional fruit farming is still used by the majority of the growers.

Studies done on organically grown fruit have revealed several benefits in terms of nutrient content, flavor and shelf life.

According to research, organic strawberries have higher levels of antioxidants and ascorbic acid. Their shelf life is longer and with certain varieties the flavor and sweetness was much better.

It is unfortunate that many organic products are more expensive (sometimes up to double in price) and less readily available than non-organic ones. Fortunately though, organic foods are now becoming more affordable as consumers are increasingly health conscious and searching for healthier food options.

Organic fruits can be found in many supermarkets and grocery stores, usually in a separate organic foods section.

Open air farmer’s markets are also another place to purchase them. Some individual small-scale farmers open up their orchards to members of the public to come and pick and purchase their own fruit for a small fee.

Other benefits of organic farming is that it’s healthier for the environment, it reduces the emission of greenhouse gases that cause global warming, and it maintains the biodiversity of fruiting plants. In the latter case, many commercial farming systems have reduced our fruit options to just a few genetically modified varieties, meaning that many indigenous fruit species are in danger of going extinct.

Often times organic produce is grown by small, individual local farmers. Purchasing organic varieties helps to support local economies and reduce pollution caused when transporting fruits over long distances by road or air.

Organic fruit are not necessarily free of pesticides, however it seems that less of the toxins are retained in the body from organic varieties. Studies done on children have shown that the pesticide levels in the urine of youngsters who ate mainly organically grown produce was five to seven times less than for those who ate fruit grown using conventional farming techniques. This is good news for parents who buy fruit for their children and weaning babies.

Some fruit have a higher tendency for pesticide residue, for example strawberries, apples, grapes, peaches, pears, cherries and nectarines. If you’re wondering which organic fruit varieties you should select first, then these are the ones. Fruits such as pineapples, papaya, avocados, bananas, kiwi and mangoes generally have minimal pesticide residues in comparison to the non-organic varieties.

The Future's Bright, The Future's Organic

Article by Kieron McFadden

How does organic farming measure up against conventional farming in terms of yield? Pretty well actually.

In response to the continued growth in popularity of the organic food, one of the “reasons” put forward for not switching to organic farming, is that such a major transition to organic methods would result in decreased yields and this would lead to catastrophic food shortages.

This assertion was based on data collected over a number of years that suggest that organic yields of a range of crops and animal products were less than their conventional counterparts. However, that data, much of it old, did not take into account the fact that a transition to organic farming is almost certain to be a matter of evolution, rather than a sudden overnight thing and that organic farming meanwhile is coming along in leaps and bounds and improving efficiency and know-how all the time.

Behind conventional farming there is a considerable track of experience, a massive industrial complex of interwoven industries and untold billions in investment. Considering that it manages with a much more modest investment of money and resources, research facilities and government help, the organic industry has not done badly at all and is continuing to do better, so much so that in terms of yield per acre, it is starting to get ahead of conventional farming! So not only does organic farming produce comparable or even better yields, it does so with less harm to the environment and produces food of higher quality, less compromised by contaminants and better for human health!

As I pointed out, with about 98% of agriculture considered “conventional,” a sudden jump to organic production is not going to happen, much as one would like it to. A steady evolution in the direction of organic is on the cards and our only hope is that it will be fast enough to stave off some major calamity with the environment and/or the food chain that definitely IS on the cards if we do not mend our ways. Some assistance from government would help – after all it is the survival and health of its citizens that are at stake and one would think that that, and not the welfare of the shareholders of some Food Giant, that would be its primary concern.

Of course, with things as they are now, if we tried to switch en masse to wholly organic farming by next Tuesday we would have trouble. Additionally, it is in the interests of those with a huge stake in the conventional paradigm that such alarmist notions of food shortages and starvation are bandied about as it discourages people from thinking about change to a world in which organic farming – and better food – is dominant.

I am reminded of the story of the bloke who, back in seventeen-hundred-and-something, claimed that the early and relatively crude version of our modern safety match would never catch on as a means of lighting fires as it was “too incendiary” and “too dangerous.” Turns out he owned the biggest flint quarry in England.

As regards organic methods improving and beginning to match and out-do conventional methods, one can check out by way of example, the Long Term Agroecological Research (LTAR) site in Greenfield, Iowa. There corn and soybeans are the organic crops attracting the most interest along with in the yields of organic wheat, alfalfa, oats, red clover and rye, which are improving.

This 12-year experiment reflects in microcosm the experience of larger scale organic producers and during the experiment great care was taken to eliminate bias and factors that might confuse the results.

Typical of results that were obtained in fields undergoing a transition to organic, organic corn yields were less than conventional during the first two years but by the third year organic and conventional corn yields were about equal and in the fourth year organic corn yields averaged 130 bushels per acre compared with the conventional corn yield of 112 bushels per acre.

Similarly, the relative yields of organic and conventional soybeans were similar in the first few years, the years of transition, and by the fourth year, the organic soybean yield was 45 bushels per acre compared with the conventional yield of 40 bushels per acre. Over 12 years of the experiment, the average conventional corn yield was 171 bushels per acre and 163 bushels per acre for organic.

Apparently however, if the transition period is eliminated from the averages, the conventional and organic yields were statistically identical at 172 bushels per acre for corn and 47 bushels per acre for soybeans.

Looking at the economics of production, even during the first two years of organic transition, the average production costs for conventional corn-soybean production were approximately $ 50 per acre HIGHER than the average organic costs. Evidently, the lower costs of organic production were due to the absence of expensive petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides (herbicides, insecticides and fungicides). It was found that, on average, organic crops returned DOUBLE the revenue of conventional crops over the duration of the experiment.

This thorough, long-term experiment provides evidence that the giants of conventional production perhaps do not want to hear; that yields of organic corn and soybeans compare very favourably with those grown using conventional methods.

However, there are two other factors that the experiment did not take into account and which make the case for a transition to organic farming even more compelling.

The first is that the raw data of yields of so many bushels per acre do not take into account the QUALITY of what was produced. Organic food is richer in nutrients that conventionally farmed food. We eat food for the nutrients it contains and if we can get the same amount of nutrients from eating one organic apple compared to, say, three apples grown using conventional methods, we actually need to buy and eat less organic apples to be well fed and healthy! Therefore, it is arguable that the NUTRIENT yield per acre of organic food is considerably superior to that of conventional crops.

The second is that the comparable organic yield and superior nutrient yield is achieved WITHOUT contaminating with toxins (industrial pesticides and so forth), the food itself or the soil in which it grows or the general environment.

In addition, as organic food is rich in nutrition and free of contaminants it causes none of the mental and physical illnesses that derive from toxins entering the bodies of those who eat it and from deficiencies in vitamins, trace minerals and so forth. A healthier population would require less medication in the form of drugs, which will reduce dependency and addiction and the incidence of further illness deriving from the harm done to the body by the drugs.

Therefore, the provision of wholesome organic food, as a human right, to the general population will see a saving on the overall healthcare bill, days of production lost to illness and so on and thus the tax burden.

Like it says in the title:

The future’s bright. The future’s organic.

Will An Organic Multivitamin Make The Difference?

December 2nd, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Organic

Article by Timmy Vic

Choosing which vitamins to buy can be difficult enough, but finding an Organic Multivitamin can be even more complicated. Not only do you need to read the labels, as is necessary for purchasing any vitamin but you also need to be certain that if the vitamin is labels as an organic multivitamin, it also has the right certifications. Mogo Organics offers an organic multivitamin that is all natural and truly organic. To see their list of products, visit mogoorganics.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a set determination of what is required for a product to be called an organic multivitamin. Some products use the label “organic multivitamin” as a marketing ploy, but haven’t actually researched and sourced their ingredients from locations which are certified organic. Organic multivitamin companies can charge more for their product because the work that goes in to ensuring the ingredients in the organic multivitamin are actually organic justifies the price. However dishonest companies claim to sell an organic multivitamin when it isn’t really an organic multivitamin. This means they try to take advantage of the higher pricing opportunity, but they don’t do the work to earn it.

Not only is this dishonest, it is also a poor business practice since many people have developing allergies to the chemicals companies use to keep pests at bay, and there is growing concern over genetically modified foods, which are often included as colorant or filler. When a company claims to offer an organic multivitamin, but in truth does not, they actually can put customers at risk for reactions and illness. Another way companies cheat the system, is buy using only a minimal amount of organic ingredients. Rather than a product being completely or primarily organic, it is not organic but rather contains organic ingredients, which is not the same thing.

It is important as more and more companies see the benefit in being included in the “organic movement” that we read labels and hold companies accountable for not including truly organic ingredients and practices. Mogo Organics not only understands the value of selling an organic multivitamin, but they also have excellent ethics and really do use organic ingredients in their proprietary line. Buying your organic multivitamin from a company that really understands the benefits of truly organic ingredients, and who works hard to keep the nutritional value of a product in tact while any necessary processing is completed is imperative. Mogo Organics offers this and more in their powdered organic multivitamin and nutritional supplements. Contact them today for more information, or with any questions about their product.

The growing trend toward organic does also include organic multivitamin purchases. More and more people are seeing the importance of buying organic, and this means also purchasing an organic multivitamin over a traditional one. Mogo Organics offers a way to get the organic multivitamin impact, with even more nutrition than the pharmaceutically derived version! Another excellent benefit of this organic multivitamin is that it isn’t in pill form. This means you have the option of adding your organic multivitamin to juice, shakes and even water for a nutritious boost. To see all the products they offer, visit their site at mogoorganics.

Mogo Organics holds its organic health products to the highest standard of purity by using only natural ingredients; no artificial ingredients are added to any nutritional formula. For more information, visit

Shingles and Organ Transplant

December 1st, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Organic

Article by Mike Johns

A microorganism that cannot grow or reproduce apart or replicate from a living cell is called a virus. This microorganism has many types. It can be made from either DNA or RNA.

What is Herpes Zoster?

Herpes zoster, more commonly called shingles, is a viral skin infection caused by a member of a group of DNA viruses known as Varicella zoster virus, also called herpes zoster virus. This is the same etiologic agent for chickenpox. Shingles is characterized by an eruption of painful vesicles from one or more posterior ganglia along the area of distribution of the sensory nerves. There are two common terms of herpes zoster depending on the rashes’ distribution. Herpes zoster oticus involves the ear while herpes zoster ophthalmicus involves the orbit of the eye.

The Risk Factors

Shingles or herpes zoster will not exist without the presence of risk factors or contributing factors which can affect a person. These factors include previous history of chickenpox, an age of 50 years and above, and/or a weakened immune system caused by HIV/AIDS, cancer or cancer treatments. Examples of such treatment modalities for cancer are radiation and chemotherapy, prolonged use of steroids such as prednisone, and medications designed to prevent rejection of transplanted organs.

Organ transplant can contribute to the development of shingles. The main one at risk in an organ transplant from shingles is the organ transplant recipient or the one who receives the organ to be transplanted.

What is Organ Transplant?

Let us know more about organ transplant. It is a medical procedure which occurs by moving an organ or tissue from one body to another.

Types of Organ Transplant

This procedure has many types. Autograft is the transplantation of a tissue or an organ to the same person which means the donor and the recipient is the same. Allograft is the transplantation of a tissue or an organ between two of the same species but is not genetically identical. Isograft is the transplantation of a tissue or an organ between two the same species but is genetically identical such as an identical twin.

Xenograft is the transplantation of a tissue or an organ between one species to another. Split transplant, not usually a preferred option, is the transplantation of a tissue or an organ from a deceased donor that can be divided between two recipients.

Classification of the Body

An organ transplant is only done to the body’s replaceable parts. There are three classes of transplantable organs. Thoracic organs include the heart, lung, and heart. Abdominal organs consist of the kidney, liver, pancreas, intestine, and stomach. There are also other body parts used, such as the tissues, cell, and fluids like hand, cornea, skin, face, the islet of Langerhans, bone marrow or adult stem cell, blood transfusion or body parts transfusion, blood vessels, heart valve, and the bones.

Types of Donors

The organ transplantation that comes from a deceased donor will only be the heart, pancreas, stomach, hand, cornea, and blood vessels while the other organs mentioned above can be from both deceased or living donors. Deceased donors, formerly known as cadaveric donors, are those who have been declared brain dead but the organs are still useful. These organs are kept viable through ventilators or other mechanical mechanism until transplantation to a recipient is performed. Living donors are those alive who donate a replaceable tissue, cell, or fluid, or donates an organ or part of the organ that can still allow the donor to function despite the absence of the donated organ or part of an organ.

So what is the connection of organ transplant to shingles? The connection is actually pretty simple. In this medical procedure, organ rejection from the recipient is the anticipated problem and can be critical. When an organ is being transplanted to another species or to the organ recipient, the organ will be considered as a foreign body which can result to an organ transplant rejection or a failure of organ transplantation. For such reasons, medications are prescribed or administered to the recipient before the procedure so that the recipient’s body will not reject the transplant.

The medication administration continues until there are no signs and symptoms of organ transplant rejection that are observable. Immunosuppresant drugs are used for the organ recipient in order to prevent transplant rejection. However, such drugs can suppress his or her immune system. Once the recipient’s immune system is suppressed, it leads to a weak immune system, which, in turn, means any sort of infection that is caused by bacteria or a virus can penetrate the recipient’s body. Therefore, a weak immune system is indeed prone to acquire herpes zoster or shingles.

Organic Options

December 1st, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Organic

More and more people are deciding to choose an organic lifestyle to counteract the imbalances of todays fast-paced world.

An organic lifestyle consists of using products, eating food and generally living a lifestyle, which is free from the chemicals that are present in so much of the commodities that we use to live life in the 21st century developed world.

Some people are choosing to go wholly organic, others, just partly, but it has been proven that an organic lifestyle is beneficial to health and well-being. Here are a few ethics, for organics:

Eating organic food means that fruit, vegetables and grains have not been sprayed with chemicals and have been grown using traditional methods. Organic meat is free from the antibiotics that are fed to animals that are farmed intensively to make them prematurely fat. Ingesting these chemicals and unnatural substances has been proven to have a negative impact on health.

To source the very freshest organic produce many people order fruit and vegetable boxes from farms that are delivered to their door, some people use farmers markets where they can trust their food has been raised/sourced/grown responsibly, and are able to ask the sellers, who are very often the farmers any questions.

Growing vegetables and owning an allotment has increased in popularity in recent years, this is again a way that people are aware of where there food comes from, and its popularity indicates that people are becoming more aware and concerned about this.

Using organic cosmetics, toiletries and household products eliminates the chemicals that tend to be present in conventional products, therefore protecting our bodies and immediate environment from chemical. Brands such as Ecover have been sold for many years but are finding that peoples increased awareness of the environment and their health has been beneficial to sales.

Organic clothing is also becoming more and more popular. Natural fibres such as cotton, hemp and bamboo are grown organically and then made into clothing, which again ensures that skin does not come into contact with chemicals that can be used in clothes dye and manufacturing clothing. Many people who have children and babies will try to adopt some kind of an organic lifestyle, to give their child the purest and healthiest start as possible, and there are a variety of organic childrens clothing options available.

Eliminating unnecessary chemicals and preservatives from our lifestyle can only be a good thing for physical health, but there is also a certain sense of well-being that those who go organic adopt.

Organic meat is always free range, so to eat organic means that you have not contributed to cruelty to animals, pollution and general waste that a non-organic way of life is susceptible to. An organic lifestyle is also considered more sustainable and recyclable, and quite often fair trade products are organic.

An organic lifestyle can be more expensive, however this encourages moderation, as it is widely understood that society today is greedy in excess of what it requires.

So, the benefits of organic are huge and for physical, mental and spiritual well-being, it is certainly a choice to consider.

The Great Benefits of Organic Food

December 1st, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Organic

Article by Jen Watson

The benefits of eating organic foods are numerous. With it becoming more and more popular to eat organically, it is becoming easier and a little more affordable to purchase organic foods. Local farmers’ markets, health food stores, and even Walmart cater to those who eat organically.

Organic crops mean the foods are grown in safe soil, without any additives or alterations. Organic livestock means that the meats you eat have been fed organic ally and have had lived naturally (i.e., outdoor). While many foods are deemed “organic,” only those which meet the above criteria are stamped with the USDA approval for organic. In stores, you can be assured that foods with the USDA Organic sticker are at least ninety percent organic.

Support local farmers

Because most organic foods are grown and sold locally, it promotes and supports farmers in your surrounding area. With a drastic drop in people living on farms, this helps keep the remaining farmers in business. Supporting local farmers also encourages less government intervention in the foods you eat. By purchasing foods from organic farmers, it sends a statement that you are willing to pay a little more in order to be healthy and refuse to have interference on what is sprayed on fruits and vegetables and fed to animals.


Organically grown foods also benefit our environment in many important ways. One is it helps keep our water safe to drink. Water is the most important liquid on the earth, and it is vital to ensure its purity. When pesticides sprayed onto plants and medicated animals defecate, these harmful chemicals make their ways into the water system. With organic farming, this does not occur, and plays an important part in keeping water clean for our ecosystem.

It follows if our water is affected by chemical processes, then the soil is as well. If the soil is contaminated, then whatever feeds off of it or is grown in it has the likelihood of being polluted. This also means organic foods make it safer for wildlife.

Higher nutrient levels

Whether or not organic foods have higher nutrient levels than treated foods is a highly debated topic. However, many treated foods give the appearance of being more nutritious because they are bigger. Do not be deserved by size, though. Most treated fruits and vegetables are larger due to a higher content of water. While organics are smaller, they still are packed with nutrients-just minus the deceptive water size.

Absence of food colorings

Many treated foods have vibrant, healthy-looking colors. However, you bite into them only to find that they are either over-ripe or under-ripe. In these cases, food colorings have been added to the fruit or vegetables to make them appear healthy and convince you to purchase them. Organic foods do not have food colorings. What you see sitting in front of you is exactly what you are getting.

Better taste

If you are only going for taste, organically grown foods have a much richer taste than treated foods. Most organic foods are fresh because they are usually locally grown. The majority of people will agree that fresh foods are hands down significantly more lush and tasty than preserved foods. Plus, because organic foods do not have all the additives and are instead grown as they were originally meant to be, they taste better.

No pesticides

Even after you have washed or even peeled foods which have been previously treated with pesticides, there can still be a remnant of pesticides left which can affect you. The Environmental Working Group has studied the effect of pesticides on foods and has determined the top twelve fruits and vegetables which are the most effected by pesticides. In order from highest, they are apples, bell peppers, carrots, celery, cherries, imported grapes, kale, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, pears, and strawberries.

Pesticides build up inside your body and create health problems, which can progressively grow as you eat more and more non-organic foods over the years. Problems which can occur include birth defects, and headaches. Babies, children, and pregnant women are especially prone to pesticide-related health issues. Because pesticides add stress to already weak immune systems (such as in babies or pregnant women), the chance to get sick is much easier. Pregnant women also need to be aware that pesticide-treated foods which they eat can also be transmitted to their child while pregnant or nursing.

By eating organic foods, you can rest assured that they are free from pesticides.

No antibiotics

Antibiotics are commonly injected into animals. These antibiotics can then be transferred into your body when you eat the meat. A bombardment of antibiotics actually makes your body immune to the effects of antibiotics. Consequently, when you need to take antibiotics to fight disease, your body is unable to use them.

Organic farmers who raise cattle or chickens or other animals for meat feed their animals natural foods the way they were originally meant to eat, and they do no inject antibiotics. Consequently, meats coming from organic farms are free from antibiotics.

No hormones

To meet the high demand for meat, commercial, non-organic farms give their animals hormone-injected feed in order to make them grow bigger and faster. While this may work for production, it translates into your children’s hormones maturing faster.

As organic farmers do not use antibiotics, they also allow their animals to grow naturally. No problems with hormones with organic meat.

More antioxidants

Non-organic foods have fewer antioxidants than organic foods. This is because the longer foods sit out in the store, the less antioxidants left. Organic foods are fresh and must be eaten faster. Consequently, they are higher in antioxidants.

Antioxidants help boost your health, including fighting heart disease. There are even studies which seem to indicate that antioxidants can fight cancer.

Reduce health risks

Obviously, if there are not pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics treated into your foods, the benefits of avoiding these products will help you avoid many debilitating-if not deadly-health risks. While many people will argue there is not that big of a difference in health risks between organic and treated foods, there have not been definite studies to show that the treated substances put into our foods are not detrimental in the long run. By purchasing organic foods, you steer clear of the possibility of harming your family’s and your health.


Knowledge is power. By knowing what we are purchasing, by what we are putting into our bodies, we have the ability to choose how to protect our health and lifestyles.

If you are like millions of people today, you want to start your own home based business but simply don’t know where to start. The fact is that the vast majority of start-up businesses do not make it past their first year. What is the reason for such a high rate of failure?

Truthfully, there are many different variables in play, but a big reason is a lack of office organization. Believe it or not, the way your home office is set up has a big impact on your overall effectiveness as an entrepreneur.

More than likely, things you really don’t need account for most of the junk in your home office. Once you get rid of these, you will be amazed at the amount of free space you truly have available that you never even knew existed.

Once this is accomplished, now go through and sort your related items into piles. For instance, you’re more pressing or urgent papers should be in one file, your less urgent papers in another, etc. Likewise, keep your pencils together, erasers, etc.

Once you’ve separated the piles, put them either in your desk drawers or a cabinet. Make sure you put each pile in a separate drawer. You’ve just instantly cut through about 95% of the clutter around your home office.

Finally, make sure that the color scheme in your office is conducive to work related activities. Bright colors have clearly proven to be distracting from one’s work related activities, while more neutral colors such as gray or beige tend to help with productivity. Typically, the less noticeable your color scheme, the better.

While thesehome office organizer tips are certainly very simple to implement, the truth is that most people will simply never take the action necessary to get their home office (and thus their life) in order. Believe it or not, your effectiveness and overall success as an entrepreneur depends on your ability to organize and mange your work related ties. Try implementing these simple steps, and watch your productivity (and income) skyrocket in a hurry.
