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:
- Cynthia Lyons Alcohol is definitely beneficial. It makes many people much better looking.
- Nicole Miranda Ilardo ...what's more disappointing is that there are no laws against intentionally misleading consumers... its a free for all, and only a handful are able to differentiate. There needs to be a mass education on what is truly healthy... processed, packaged, prepared is not it. Not to mention pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and GMO's the general population really has no idea. Very sad, and not they're fault!
- Tina Klamert It's about time farmers fought back instead of laying down and being a victim. They sould organize a nation / world wide class action suit against Monsanto for damage from cross contamination & property damages, causing loss of income, and violating the Right To Know Act, for witholding scientific information about their own test results about the negative side effects of GMO's.
- Jack Rigby Your best hope is to support LOCAL farmers who commit to "Oorganic" farming or better: BIODYNAMIC principles. "Invest" in buying local but be sure they ARE local growers. In most "farmers markets" they are entrepreneurs reselling reject grade fruit and veg from Supermarket chain buyers.
- S.l. Stivers-Menz Hot dogs in and of themselves are unnatural. I mean "real" hot dogs? Insanity. You can always make your own vegan hot dogs with seitan and tvp and spices and it's a million times better.
