We love when our community gets passionate about the issues that affect them. Whether it’s the latest news from Monsanto or environmental issues, you are always intellegent, funny and – most of all – steadfast. We also love when you have useful information to share with your peers, which happens quite frequently. Organic Authority is more than just news and articles: It’s a place where people come to share new ideas and communicate with each other. Thanks for all the love, everyone; you are why we love what we do!
We also have a brand new OA Everyday Eco Star! Her name is Danielle, but she goes by the name of The Glamorganic Goddess on her blog! Her story is amazing, and you can read all about her right here! Congrats!
If you have any thoughts or ideas about how we can improve, please share.
Here are some of our favorite social network highlights from the week:
- @mastergardening: @liquidfence @OrganicAuthorit very yum! The only reason I grow mint is for mojitos! I guess I have 2 reasons now
- @AKdavedownunder: @OrganicAuthorit It’s a start. They should finish by totally banning all Monsanto and other GM foods.
- @treepiepurr: true. Real food doesn’t need labels “@OrganicAuthorit: Is POM As Wonderful As It Claims? http://t.co/kYoUmd6”
- @MikeLuque: Great! But why is needing an EIS even in question?? Monsanto’s GM Sugar Beets Require Further Testing http://t.co/GrPzyrh @OrganicAuthorit
- @_sonia4good_: @OrganicAuthorit Thanks Laura. Yes, thank you for your beautiful work and for telling the truth! So much good material…I love it:)
- @liquidfence: @OrganicAuthorit so sad this info was known so long ago. Glad we put children at risk so Monsanto could make money http://bit.ly/ksH4eo
Our Facebook Favs of the Week:
We love when members of our community are able to reach out and help each other. Here are some of our favorite Facebook posts from the last week:
Janice Johnson How do these poisonous chemicals get past a health and public safety analyasis, research and government inspection? Oh…It was Monsato…never mind.
- Tamara Dolenuck Laschinsky I’m all for Badger Sunscreen! Our bodies do need Vitamin D true, but when our body has had enough the skin turns brown to let us know we’ve gotten enough Vit. D for now – that’s when we get that sunscreen on b/c burning the skin not only increases skin cancer risks, it just plain hurts! But I strongly suggest full disclosure to the public b/c no one seems to really understand. I have many customers who want to use the Badger but then say ” Will it turn my skin white?” Well yes – that’s how it keeps the rays off/out of your skin! But for some it’s more of a fashion thing I guess!
- Brian Friesen Here’s a trick I found to work for a bee sting. Once the insect and stinger are removed, apply a piece of fresh slice of onion to the sting and leave on for a while. The onion will draw out the poison and decrease, if not eliminate, the pain.
- Gini Shackelford I pull the leaves off the dandelions in the backyard (the dog walks on those lol) and give them to my chicken. She loves them.
