True Value of Nutrition
"If we are to understand the true value of nutrition, we must begin by considering the health value of whole foods, not the nutrient parts extracted from them. In that context it is whole, plant-based foods that express an effect that is far more then the sum of its parts. When done right, advanced heart disease can be cured, type 2 diabetes stopped and reversed, cancer can be prevented and, with some newer evidence, controlled after it appears. The range of diseases that can be prevented is more than impressive. The breadth and rapidity of the nutritional effect not only prevents disease but actually treats many of these diseases while restoring and maintaining health. The totality of these health effects are far more than almost anyone knows." T. Collin Campbell Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry, Cornell University.- Posted: October 25, 2010 Huffington Post

When planting your spring/fall gardens, be wary of the seeds you use. You may be inadvertently poluting the genetic line by planting GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) seeds that can damage the environment and endanger your health.
Since we have planted our Spring garden and it is doing so well, many friends and clients have asked us about seeds. With all the proliferation of Genetically Modified crops, it is really hard to tell if you are getting true non-GMO seeds. So much of our crop land is cross-polluted with GMO pollen, it is destroying our bio-diversity.
So many people who attempt to live a lifestyle of a macrobiotic/vegetarian/vegan/raw-food diet find it difficult to navigate the public sector of fast food and restaurants who knowingly serve less than desirable, less healthy foods.
