Var tredje svenskt bi på väg att utrotas – så kan du stötta dem — VAKEN.se – 16 April, 2019

En tredjedel av Sveriges vilda bin håller på att utrotas. Många av oss kanske inte bryr sig särskilt mycket om det. Vi tycker de är irriterande och många är även rädda för dem. Men faktum är att vi behöver bin i vår natur, utan dem skulle en stor del av vår matproduktion försvinna.

Deconstructing the 3 biggest LIES that attack organic farming — NaturalNews.com – March 27, 2019

(Natural News) Oh yes they did. There’s now a so-called “study” that’s been done which supposedly determined that organic farming creates a much bigger carbon footprint that torques up “global warming” more than ever. Yes, old faithful US News has regurgitated a chunk of claims published in the International Journal of Science, and somebody has to set the record straight.

March 02, 2019 byTracey Watson

(Natural News) Sometimes the smallest nations can prove to be the bravest and most progressive in their thinking. Western countries like to believe that they are the most advanced in the world, and they certainly are in some respects, but when it comes to genetically modified crops and avoiding chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, other countries are leaving the West in their dust…Read more

new meta-analysis of glyphosate suggests that people who are highly exposed to the popular herbicide have a 41 percent increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is the world’s most widely used weedkiller and has been surrounded by controversy ever since the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified it as “probably carcinogenic to humans” in 2015….Read more

NEWS for diabetics: Common mineral LOWERS insulin resistance and improves blood sugar control — Natural Health 365 – February 8, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) A stunning 100 million Americans currently have diabetes or prediabetes – elevated blood sugar that can progress to diabetes if unchecked.  But, thankfully, we have some great news – especially for diabetics.

Many natural health experts believe that widespread deficiencies of an essential mineral – magnesium – are driving the skyrocketing national rates of diabetes.  In fact, even the National Institutes of Health (NIH) warns that ‘diabetes is frequently associated with a magnesium deficiency.’

The fact is, almost half of all Americans are low in magnesium (and, for seniors, the picture is even bleaker – 80 percent of adults over age 70 are deficient).  If you think you may be deficient in magnesium, keep reading to discover how restoring healthy levels – whether accomplished by increasing dietary intake, or taking magnesium supplements – can benefit you……Read more

Varför vill Big Food ha GMO? – 5 November, 2018

Den globala livsmedelsindustrin – Big Food borde oroa sig över att miljarder människor över hela världen blir allt sjukare av deras produkter. Men så är det inte, deras största oro idag är att allt fler människor vaknar till insikt om hur hälsovådlig industrimaten är och börjar välja närproducerad ekologisk mat. Jag har bl.a. en ingående analys av den globala epidemi som industrimaten orsakar i min senaste bok Den metabola pandemin.

500 Types of Plants Grow in this Underground Farm – November 4, 2018

This Underground Farm Grows 500 Types Of Plants And Is Located In The Middle Of New York

Posted on 2018/11/2

SourceTruth Theory | By Mayuk Saha

When we think of farms and fresh vegetables we think of the huge plots in the outskirts of the cities. However, Farm One in New York City has revolutionized the concept of farming completely through scientific research and innovation. They made it possible for passionate chefs and restaurants across the city to get access to healthy and fresh farm produce without any delay by creating a 1500 square feet farm set up in the basement of a building within the city itself.

They grow around 500 different types of plants, keeping in mind the special demands of the chefs. Since the set up is made by them, they have full control over the optimum environment the plants need to grow properly and also the nutrients they need. They handle all the parameters in way that would give them the right plants with the exact features like size, colour and shape which are demanded by the customers.

The seeds are planted in recycled coconut husks that allows them to derive nutrients as well as space to grow roots. Also, these plants are placed in raft like structures over water which helps the roots to suck in the moisture and grow correctly.

Moreover vertical farms like these use a lot less water compared to traditional ones since the system is created to recycle the water. They don’t use pesticides and instead allow beneficial insects like ladybugs to feed on the plants. Lack of pesticide also allows people to eat the plants directly with no need of cleaning them.

Rob Laing, the creator of Farm.One, got the inspiration for a farm like this in 2015. He was a culinary student and during those days he came across several exotic plants and vegetables that are difficult to find and so it motivated him to create a healthy set up like this to make these ingredients available to all. The products are sold on the day of their harvest, which are then delivered through subway or bikes as fast as possible. Most of their customers are half an hour away from the outlet.

All these ingredients are grown based on the criteria sent in by the chefs like the leaf shape and size which Farm.One produces in batches for them. These chefs are very impressed with this system as it allows them to create the best dish with the healthiest ingredients. Earlier these chefs had to order stuff from California or Mexico which needed to be packaged carefully to keep them fresh. These extra packaging measures created more waste. Farm.One’s unique technique of production has reduced expenses on both sides.

Having witnessed such a great success of his venture, Laing wishes to expand this business to several other major cities and is of the opinion that their resourceful and technologically advanced system can be utilised in different ways. Although they produce unique plants, the system makes them less expensive and he hopes his innovation will lead to more farming ventures in cities in the future.
