Trader Joe’s and the right-not-to know where your food comes from.

Everybody likes Trader Joe's. I like Trader Joe's.  People like it because of the affordable prices for organic foods and eclectic mix of products. But how do we know that Trader Joe's is on the level about their products?

Organic gmo labeling advocate spills the beans: It’s all about market share

For some time I have been squawking about the frauds, charlatans and crackpots that are out in front on the Prop. 37 law in California. One of my prime targets is the anti-vaccine Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Union. His group has ponied up over $600,000. In a recent "open letter" posted on the Common Dreams website, he gives up the real…

I recently came across a project on Indiegogo that wanted to help a family organic farm in Maine build a repair shed for the farm equipment. Now this sounds like a worthwhile cause. Is it?

The race is heating up for Prop. 37, the gmo labeling law in California. It's being touted as the consumer's right to know what is in their food. The plain fact is that all the evidence they have to support their side is based on bad and flawed science and/or outright lies. The liberal/left is always pointing to the anti-science mindset of the rig…

Child’s coloring book too complicated for anti-gmo crowd

Recently Monsanto put out a coloring book for children explaining what biotechnology is. Some people have a problem with that. One of those people expressing concern is a columnist Christine G.K. LaPado-Bregliafor who writs for the Chico California newspaper, the Chico News Review. In her column Keeping up with Monsanto, she writes, "the book is f…

Organic farm animals treated like organic farm workers

Organic advocates feel good about themselves when they buy organic foods. They believe they are helping the small farmer, (not necessarily so) the environment (matter of debate) and how humanely the animals are treated. (they'd rather let a calf die than administer one dose of antibiotics to save its life and make it ineligible for organic certific…
