I almost fell over in my chair the other day when I read this one in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The chemicals that resist fire damage can easily be imagined as harsh substances. Now imagine those substances going in your family's stomach. Traces of a flame retardant often used to on furniture and walls have been found in peanut butter, beef, and cold cuts. If you haven't moved to organic yet, this information should start a fire beneath your eating habits to change!

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Living as an organic part of our environment takes on a literal meaning as Mitchell Joachim, a leader in ecological design and urbanism, describes how we have the potential to live in homes and become like a tree that has been pleached - sucking carbon, a plus to the environment rather than a taking from it.  In the future we may have the ability to choose from a veggie house or a house of meat. One must taste the video to believe it.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: One of the most toxic professions is working in a beauty salon. The chemicals to dye, perm, and straighten hair are known to be highly dangerous. The owner of this salon took steps in every part of her business to go green, go organic. The health of her employees improved; and clients soon turned to prefer the natural way to go.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), only 13% of mothers in the United States meet their recommendations for infant nutrition. What a woman eats and her health prior to conception affect both fetal development and breast milk...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Breast Feeding will benefit the child for a lifetime and can help prevent some of the devastating conditions adults are now facing. The once assumed choice for a child now has conditions and interference in becoming the way we first feed our children. Look at the benefits to consider. And even when the ability of breast feeding is not possible, there are very good recommendations to fill the child's need that surpasses the canned choices on the shelf.

Environmentalists, sustainable agriculture advocate and farmers have all been stressing the same thing for years: Buy Organic. But earlier this week, a fiasco involving one of the largest organic cattle producers in the country proves that just looking for the ‘USDA Organic’ label won’t protect you from foods manufactured with questionable practices, pesticides, hormones, and other nasty stuff...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Labeling is a challenging task. As discovered with the USDA "Organic" labeling, what is printed on the label isn't always what we get. As market demand grows for organic products, there will be those that promote products falling short of organic standards.

ATH Co-Editor of Organic Living

I’ve got my reusable, cloth bags. I recycle. I drink organic tea from India. I am an organic girl. But, sometimes I go bad, real bad. The force of the convenient, fast current society is undeniable. Even with all my good intentions; with mounds of knowledge; and tons of trusty tools, I admit to failing often on the path of “going organic.”

Whittling the list down to five was tough, but here are the top, most frequent, or most embarrassing ways I veer off the “all-natural” way of life. This process is truly a journey and admitting we fall short is one way to keep our humor, live with no regrets, and get back up and ride on again...

In terms of wellness promotion, there is no doubt that an organic whole foods-based diet and a healthy lifestyle are the "best medicine" for those of us trying to survive and keep our families healthy in the toxic soup of 100,000 synthetic chemicals that surround us everyday, polluting our food, water, medicines, homes, and environment...

 

 

Organic Living


by Barbara Rodriguez

Every mommy wants her children to be healthy and happy, and this is accomplished in so many ways. We make happy kids by building their self-esteem and letting them know how much they are loved. We surround our children with books and games that develop their mind. We take them to the doctor for regular check-ups. But, how often do we think about the food that we are feeding our children every day?...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Check those labels. Learning what goes in what we eat is a constant process of education.
