This is a question I have asked myself a number of times and I finally have taken the time to find the answer. My understanding is that organic refers to how food is grown whereas natural refers to how food is made/produced or processed. Of course this is an over simplified definition so I'll break it down further...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: If it's "all natural" it's good for me? Right? Not so fast. Natural could mean loads of sugar. Natural could mean bleach. Natural could mean just about anything as regulation for the world natural doesn't exist. Sounds good on the package, but look twice. Organic means organic, which naturally means natural. There is a difference.

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in one of the most heavily used herbicide in the world: Monsanto’s Roundup. The industry claims that Roundup is quite safe, but authors of a recent article in the scientific journal Entropy reach a very different conclusion...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: “Contrary to the current widely-held misconception that glyphosate is relatively harmless to humans, the available evidence shows thatglyphosate may rather be the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”  This quote should move us all to the read the following article and understand how deep and profound the poisons that we eat carry through so many foods, so many places we don't even think to look.

Organic Living


from Cornucopia

It’s only natural to get swept up by the allure of products marketed as “natural.” We resonate with that term for a number of reasons: it implies pure, unadulterated goodness. It sounds comforting...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Natural sounds great. Who wouldn't like something natural? Yet the research shows natural might mean processed and straight from a factory to your table. Natural and Organic are not the same thing and might even be a step backward.

Organic Living


by Kristen Morrison

My original purpose for writing this book was to provide information to parents with a new baby born with Down syndrome. While compiling this information, however, I’ve realised that my story is relevant to any parent.

The very nature of Down syndrome is such that the extra chromosome can bring about any number of a collection of ‘symptoms’.
