Michael Pollan on Nutrition, Food Science and the American Diet

Acclaimed author and journalist Michael Pollan argues that what most Americans are consuming today is not food but "edible food-like substances." His previous book, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. His latest book, just published, is called In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto.

Make More Food Conscious Decisions

It's imperative that we become more food conscious not only as individuals but as a culture in order for us to bring about the proper changes that are so badly needed within the food industry. Every time we make a food purchase we are voting for more of the same thing. If you haven't yet seen the documentary Food Inc. you can watch it for free by *CLICKING HERE*. As we get more informed about the food we eat, we become empowered to make the very best decisions regarding our health.

Reasons to Eat Organic Foods

There are so many reasons why we should eat fresh organic produce over non-organic. The fact is, we were never intended to ingest pesticides and chemical fertilizer, but we do, Why? It really comes down to the "bottom line" of both the corporations and farmers. You can produce a final product at a lower cost through the use of non-organic practices. Unfortunately as a result, we are left with mineral deficient chemical laden foods. Give your health the top priority it deserves and treat your body right.....Buy Organic, Ask For Organic, and Grow Organic!

From the movements of nature and everyday life, the tribal people of Africa developed specific dances to summon the energy of the world around them into their bodies for connection and healing. Through dancing, they became the bird and the wind, the fire and the serpent.

Earthlings Documentary (only watch if you want to know and can accept the truth about what we do)

Narrated by Academy Award Nominee Joaquin Phoenix and featuring music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby, EARTHLINGS is a documentary film about humankind's complete economic dependence on animals raised for pets, food, clothing, entertainment and scientific research. Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative, controversial and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals and human economic interests.
