Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Does your fish taste like chicken? How did the model for corporate farming become so backwards that we are feeding chicken to fish? Fish farming sounds like an idea that supports a natural system; however, Chef Dan Barber gives a funny and poignant talk about how falling in love with few fish opened his eyes to the damage of a practice we've come to accept and support each time we buy a tuna or halibat. Critics of organic farming and practices often ask how we can feed the world from the little farmer down the road. Tune into this video and your eyes will open at the incredible fish farm that not only reverses the damage done by "conventional" methods, but also shows without a doubt that following the eco-systems 2 billion years of example will not only feed us, but save us.

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!

Modern obstetrics may damage the baby’s neurospinal system. Chiropractors have a moral responsibility to tell the public about the abuses of modern birth practices...
Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Parents often wonder why their child should have their spine evaluated by a chiropractor. How could a child's spine have subluxations? In this article Dr. Arno Burnier details the trauma many children go through during the delivery process in so-called modern hospital births. Between 90 to 140 pounds of pressure is often used on the baby's head and neck causing subluxations of the cervical spine. If you are a parent, this is an article you must read!
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: We all know to keep harsh, chemical cleaners away from children. But could using them so freely, as is so often advertised, cause us damage too? Women's Voices for the Earth presents this short animation that gets us thinking about what we spray in the name of "killing all those germs." Plain old soap, vinegar, and things like Borax can keep all those bad germs away just effectively and with a greater sense of peace of mind.

She says she loves you, but you’ve got to get a “better” job. When you try to choose your partner’s friends, activities, or work, it suggests that you consider your partner to be inadequate. Doing all activities in unison, having agreement all the time, and having the same friends create merely the illusion of unity. Seeking unity through control damages the respect at the core of love. In time, you might achieve uniformity, but that ultimately becomes dull and oppressive.
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Hair loss (alopecia) and hair care is one of the most common health and beauty concerns. In addition to environmental toxins, it is frequently associated with high levels of stress and often accompanied by vitamin/mineral deficiencies. Ayurveda links hair loss to both Vata and Pitta doshas. Excessive physical, mental or emotional stress can increase the dryness and heat in our bodies and damage hair follicles.
