  • 1. Organic FoodOrganic Food and Locally Grown Food: Are They the Same?SUNDAY,NOVEMBER 20, 2011 @ 05:31Article by Chris RobertsonIn the U.K., consumers are gobbling up organic food by the bushel. In fact, accordingto the Organic Centre Wales, “Direct sales of organic food through box schemes,farmers‟ markets and farm shops grew by more than a third to L144 million during2004.” And those numbers have continued to rise as consumers become increasinglyconcerned about the long-term effects of the chemical fertilizers and pesticides usedon crops grown by non-organic farms. While most people agree that organic food ispreferable over non-organic, a debate has begun about the source of organic foods.For example, is imported organic food as desirable as UK organic food? Making theCase for Local Organic Food. Those on one side of the debate insist it doesn‟t matterwhere organic food is grown; rather, the crucial factor is that the food meets stringentstandards to ensure that it is truly organic. Those on the other side of the debate areequally vehement that locally grown organic food is preferable to imported organicfood, both because the fossil fuels used to transport imported organic food add toglobal warming and because UK organic food supports local farmers. Advocates saythat you can find UK organic food at an organic farm shop, or even arrange fororganic food delivery right to your door. You can even find organic fish, such asorganic trout from an organic fish farm. There, the organic trout may live in 400-year-old spring water and eat natural shrimp that comes from organic watercress beds.Those who favor importing organic food point out that an organic farm shop will onlyhave seasonal foods, which severely limit the choices consumers have when preparingmeals. Imported organic food, they say, retains its superior nutritional quality whiledelivering a bountiful variety of fruits and vegetables. Some people, of course, takethe middle ground, and opt to select their foods from an organic farm shop when whatthey desire is in season and shop for imported organic food the remainder of theyear.The Bottom LinePeople may differ in their opinions about whether or not to limitone‟s consumption of organic food to that grown locally, but virtually everyoneagrees that organic fruits, organic vegetables, organic fish, and organic meats arepreferable to those that are grown with chemical fertilizers, insecticides, andfungicides. Currently, non-organic growers are authorized to use over 1,000chemicals on crops. This translates into everything from soil erosion due to over-
  • 2. farming to dangerous toxic runoff into our drinking water. Growing food organicallyis a way to reverse this trend. With over 700,000 hectares dedicated to UK organicfood, farmers are trying to meet consumer demand. Still, some markets import almosthalf of the organic food they sell. As for who will win the debate over locally grownorganic food vs. imported organic food, only time will tell.Chris Robertson is an author of Majon International, one of the worlds MOSTpopularinternet marketing companies.For tips/information, click here: organicfoodVisit Majon’sFood directory.LETTER OF THE DAY – Take the challenge, Prime Minister!THURSDAY,NOVEMBER 24, 2011 @ 03:55[EDIT]LETTER OF THE DAY – Take the challenge, Prime Minister!Pick a winner: The Government is constantly touting the many potential new businessopportunities in Jamaica, particularly foreign-exchange earners from Internetopportunities to the growing of unconventional crops like hemp, or aloe vera. …Read more on Jamaica GleanerQuestion by UrHero: Aloe Vera Drink by OKF Where can I buy and How Much?Ok i live in charlotte NC, and my uncle brought the drink from georgia, and imaddicted to it, where can i buy it… please reply,, also how much???Best answer:Answer by Raj Ki think dear Aloe Vera Drink or product easily can purchased in any high level camistshop. u can just try or ayurveda shop,What do you think?

  • 7. Beautiful Skin With Manuka Honey ProductsTHURSDAY,NOVEMBER 24, 2011 @ 00:53Article by Andrea MarshallActive Manuka honey is a rare variety of what is known as “mono-floral” honey.What that means is that the pollen that is gathered from the flowering bush comesprimarily from a single plant species. Manuka honey products come to you from NewZealand, the single place on earth where this particular bush grows.Active manuka honey has been used for centuries by the New Zealand natives formedicinal purposes. It has been used to treat sore throats, stomach ulcers, and colitis.Scientific studies have shown that the healing benefits of the compound come from itspowerful antibacterial, and antifungal properties.Researchers as of late have been testing the effectiveness of active manuka honey intreating the skin ulcers that result from antibiotic resistant staph infections. Althoughthere is still much more research to be done on the subject, so far the results have beenpromising.In New Zealand, manuka honey products are widely used. An organization called“The Active Manuka Honey Association” regulates the production of manuka honeyproducts that are used for medicinal purposes, and they grade the varieties based onthe strength of their antibacterial properties.Active manuka honey is use in a great variety of the skin creams and body lotions thatare manufactured in New Zealand. These products are very popular because they haveproven to increase the elasticity of the skin, and they support the growth of strongercollagen.Manuka honey products are primarily sold as lotions that have been specificallyformulated to prevent free radical damage, to prevent oxidative stress, and to counterthe outward signs of aging. The honey is also effective in skin care products becauseits antibacterial property makes it beneficial in preventing the eruption of acne andboils.
  • 8. Active manuka honey has been shown to be very beneficial in the treatment ofpsoriasis and eczema also. Since the moisture content of the raw honey is very low, ithas to be mixed with plant based oils in order to be able to maintain the moisturenecessary for deep skin penetration.You of course will be able to find a large assortment of other skin care products onthe market that have a different kind of honey as an ingredient, and the company thatpromotes the product will without a doubt say that there honey products are just asgood as manuka honey products. The research shows that they are wrong.The New Zealand company that produces the best skin care products combinesactivated manuka honey with another strong anti aging compound, Wakame sea kelpfrom Japan. They also load their products with powerful antioxidants such ascoenzymeQ10 and natural vitamin E.You won‟t see any advertisements for the company‟s product that include activemanuka honey, because they believe that the money that they could spend onadvertising is better spent on good research and development. You also won‟t seetheir products in stores, you can only buy these skin creams direct from themanufacturer, but I guarantee that you won‟t be sorry that you tried them.Andrea Marshall is a researcher of skin care and health supplement products.
