Hemp Industry Overview

The first year of legal hemp farming in Colorado proves difficult for farmers

By Melissa Schaaf

What if we just woke up one day and corn was outlawed?” asks Eric Hunter, president of the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association. “Imagine if 80 years down the road corn was illegal. There go chips, corn syrup, plastic cups. Hemp is just as harmless as corn — why should it be illegal?” 

Although illegal at the federal level, small steps are being taken toward legalization of industrial hemp farming in the U.S. In 2014, Colorado and Kentucky regulated legal hemp cultivation as part of the Farm Bill, allowing growers to register farmland dedicated to the crop. As of August 2014, Colorado had 55 commercial registrants with 1,461 acres and 73 research and development registrants with 237 acres.

Despite the number of acres and individuals registered, many fields are void of the crop due to seed accessibility issues. Of the 1,698 registered Colorado acres dedicated to cultivating hemp, 300 of those belong to Ryan Loflin’s farm in Springfield.

“Unfortunately, I’ve only been able to plant a little over six acres,” he says. “I wasn’t able to get seed — it got held up at customs.”

Loflin joins several registered farmers facing barriers during the inaugural year of hemp farming in Colorado. Ron Carleton, deputy commissioner for the Colorado Department of Agriculture, explains this is due, in part, to regulation inconsistencies. In addition to the Farm Bill at the federal level, the passage of Amendment 64 in Colorado legalized the cultivation, processing and sale of industrial hemp and allowed farmers to register with the state either as commercial growers or research and development growers.

“There are difficulties getting seeds because industrial hemp has essentially been illegal since the 1950s,” Carleton says. “The only seed they can get is from other countries because of the conflict with state versus federal law. Hemp and marijuana are considered to be one in the same, and seeds cannot be imported without an import permit from the [Drug Enforcement Agency]. And they’re not issuing any.”

Hunter says another hurdle lies with seed breeders refusing to export their seeds.

“Because it’s illegal, there’s no patent protection; they would have to be registered as part of the national seed database,” he says. “Until that happens, there’s really nothing to do.”

If farmers are lucky enough to get ahold of seeds, it’s not cheap. Seeds are typically imported from Canada, China and the European Union. Loflin estimates that seeds are being sold from Europe at $4 to $5 per pound and has even heard of an Italian seed going for $12 per pound. Last year he imported about 1,500 pounds of hemp seeds from Europe to plant 300 acres. The seeds were shipped in 55 pound bags for $250 per bag. He planted six acres this year with seeds he harvested last year.

“This year, I tried to do it completely legitimately through the Farm Bill,” he says. “I want to focus on seed production and establish good, climatized seed genetics. We’re not sure what the policy will be next year and getting seeds could be a problem again.”

Even if seeds are acquired and planted, farmers gamble with the potential potency of the hemp they’re cultivating. Under Farm Bill regulation, the Department of Agriculture reserves the right to test the crops to ensure the delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, is below 0.3 percent. If a crop tests beyond the limit, the farmer cannot legally harvest the hemp and may be required to destroy it, resulting in a major financial loss. With high prices and strict regulations, the reintroduction of hemp in Colorado has been difficult on farmers.

“In the first developing years of hemp plants being re-established in American soil, there could be THC spikes and changes,” Loflin says. “I think if they raised the level to 1 percent that would give every farmer peace of mind not having to worry. It costs me $300 per month just to water — if you put all that money into it and are told to destroy it in the end, it’s a big loss.”

The United States has historically had a love-hate relationship with Cannabis, the genus encompassing both hemp and marijuana. In 1937, Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act which effectively began the era of hemp prohibition. The tax and licensing regulations of the act made hemp cultivation difficult for American farmers. The bombing of Pearl Harbor in World War II, however, was a game changer. It cut off foreign hemp from the Philippines, so the federal government subsidized and encouraged hemp cultivation during this time, leading farmers to grow more than 1 million acres. After the war ended, the government quietly shut down all hemp processing plants, and the industry faded away again. And, in 1970, the country severed all ties with the crop by categorizing all cannabis as a Schedule I substance per the Controlled Substances Act, freezing any sort of hemp cultivation, processing facilities and consumer sales.

Hunter believes reverting back to federal legalization would mark the end of what he considers an unnecessary era.

“Legalization would be a return to normalcy,” he says. “I laugh when they say legalization is an experiment — prohibition is the experiment.”

Although hemp is a cousin to marijuana, the psychoactive constituents are a notably smaller percentage of hemp’s chemical makeup. Recreational and medicinal marijuana have a higher percentage of THC usually ranging from 3 to 30 percent, whereas cannabis with THC levels of 1 percent or lower is considered hemp. Hemp also has a higher ratio of cannabidiol (CBD) to THC. Cannabidiol is found in both hemp and marijuana and is a non-psychoactive compound typically used for medical purposes.

The most famous example of medicinal hemp use is that of Charlotte Figi, a 5-yearold girl who suffers from Dravet syndrome, causing her to have hundreds of seizures every week. In 2012, a strain of hemp was developed in Colorado Springs to help Charlotte. Through cross breeding hemp varieties and landrace strains of cannabis, a new strain emerged yielding extremely high levels of cannabidiol and very low levels of THC, 20 percent and 0.5 percent, respectively. Consumed in hemp seed oil form, this strain eased Charlotte’s seizures from hundreds per week to only a few per month and was christened Charlotte’s Web.

Using Charlotte’s example and research studies on the medicinal benefits of hemp oil, representatives are going to bat at the federal level to separate hemp from marijuana by legal definition. The Charlotte’s Web Medical Hemp Act of 2014 was introduced to Congress on July 28. According to the Act, it would exclude “therapeutic hemp” and “cannabidiol” from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act.

The separation of hemp from marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act could reclassify or remove it from Schedule I classification, potentially leading to the federal legalization of hemp. Farmers would then be able to freely cultivate the crop on a larger scale. Colorado farmer Loflin sees that as a way to create employment opportunities and improve the economy.

“Ultimately, this is a job-creating crop, and what we need more than anything right now is jobs,” he says. “Leading the nation is pretty exciting — we’re right at the tip of the iceberg as far as the future goes. Farmers have been struggling for years, and this is giving them hope again.”

With Colorado on the forefront of the changing hemp industry, Deputy Commissioner Ron Carleton also sees promise for the future of hemp farming despite the hurdles many farmers faced in 2014.

“Industrial hemp has a lot of promise and potential as a commodity crop for our farmers,” he says. “I think it may take us a little while to get to the point where a lot of it is being cultivated and economically viable, but it has every intention to be a profitable crop.”

Colonics and Weight Loss

Comments Off

Thank you folks for finding our web site :lol:

The following is a statement from a Medical Doctor in the Netherlands and it is perfect to help you understand colonics.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY

Harmful agents are absorbed from deposits in the large intestine, overloading the immune-system and potentially causing a variety of primarily chronic disorders. Significant detoxification can be achieved with intensive colonics and the natural balance of the body can be improved. The treatment effectively removes deposited stool from the large intestine and is indicated in cases of habitual constipation, distension and other digestive problems, as well as in eczema, psoriasis, allergies, fatigue, migraines and arthritis. During the treatment the patient lies on their back, and single-use equipment sprays varying-temperatures of water into the large intestine through the anus. The alternating usage of hot and cold water trains the muscles of the large intestine and improves circulation. The treatment is pain-free. This therapy is excellent for strengthening the immune system, for detoxifying the body, for restoring normal digestion and absorption, and, as a side benefit, for losing unnecessary weight.

Hi folks and thank you! ;-)

:lol:   People,     if you are confused about what Complementary, Alternative,  safe,  natural,  detoxification therapy to use to clean up with, just ask a white coat (you walk in a hospital/docs office what do you see? a sea of white coats right?). Whatever the white coat tells you, it’s the exact opposite! 

So for example, you ask a white coat Doctor,  Nurse,  PA  main stream, traditional, allopathic, conventional, injections, drugs and surgery person ; Should I do colonics?  and the white coat response is:  ”why would you do that? or you don’t need to detoxify, your body can do it on it’s own, or they are all quacks or something at all the least bit discouraging..here is what I suggest you do….

 

RUN, do not walk to whatever it is they discouraged you from doing. It’s that easy folks.

White Coat credibility is in the CAN . The mainstream, medical, conventional ,  injections, drugs and surgery person are puppets run by the Legal Drug Cartels (PHAT PHARMA).  The drug Lords :evil:  have BILLIONS of dollars to make. :mrgreen:  You interfere with that plan when you keep 30 feet of intestines clean.   :oops: You interfere with profits when you detoxify your body.   :twisted:

 

I was a main stream puppet for 19 years. :cry:  White Coat! But I switched to Naturopathy and cleansing because of the gross negligence on behalf of WHITE COAT syndrome.  :-| Been in practice for 10 years now as a colonic therapist/ Naturopathic Doctor.

We would love to walk hand in hand with white coats but through ignorance and greed they refuse to accept us. (Most Of Them)

We ‘re not talking about the good guys here, the ones that slap you back together in crisis. 

:-D

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is around 5, 000 years old, and Ayurvedic is about 5, 000 years old. Together, thats 10,000 years experience with enemas and colonics that have worked. Now 167 years ago WHITE COATS American Medical Association comes along and knows it all?

hmmmmm…… I don’t know….. :roll:

MUCOID PLAQUE AFFECTS INTESTINES

Thank you everyone :lol: for stopping by! :lol:

LOOK AT THIS STUFF THAT IS IN YOUR SMALL INTESTINE!

https://www.google.com/search?q=pictures+of+mucoid+plaque&espv=210&es_sm=122&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=S-sZU_yTNuad0QH2noDgBw&ved=0CCYQsAQ&biw=1600&bih=775

 

“At least 90% of all Diseases stem from internal pollution!” 

Dr Smokey Santillo
founder of Juice Plus.

Answer by Richard Anderson, N.D., N.M.D. “The intestines can store a vast amount of partially digested, putrefying matter (as well as drugs and other toxic chemicals)—for decades even. Some intestines, when autopsied, have weighed up to 40 pounds and were distended to a diameter of 12 inches with only a pencil-thin channel through which the feces could move. That 40 pounds was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus mixed with fecal matter, bizarrely resembling hardened blackish-green truck tire rubber or an old piece of dried rawhide. I call this mucoid plaque. This mucoid plaque, when it is removed during an intensive colon cleanse, often shows ropelike twists, striations, overlaps, folds, creases—the shape and texture of the intestinal wall. Mucoid plaque may vary considerably, depending on the chemical conditions in a person’s intestines. It may be hard and brittle; it may be firm and thick; tough, wet, and rubbery; soft, thick, and mucoid; or soft, transparent, and thin; it can range in color from light brown, black, or greenish-black to yellow or grey, and sometimes emits an intensely foul odor. I coined the term mucoid plaque, meaning a film of mucus, to describe the unhealthy accumulation of abnormal mucous matter on the walls of the intestines.

Conventional medicine knows this as a layering of mucin or glycoproteins (made up of 20 amino acids and 50% carbohydrates) which are naturally and appropriately secreted by intestines as protection from acids and toxins. However, mucoid plaque is different from the mucosal lining (mucosa) of the gastrointestinal tract. The latter acts as a necessary buffer to the gastrointestinal wall and as a lubricant for peristalsis; it is also responsible for the secretion of mucins which comprise mucoid plaque. The cells of the outermost layer of the mucosa (the epithelium) stay fresh and vital, renewing themselves every four to seven days. It sounds paradoxical, but medical research indicates that mucoid plaque is a normal selfdefense measure—natural protection from unnatural toxins. Evidence indicates that mucoid plaque, with the possible exception of that found in the stomach, is unnatural to the healthy body and is found only after the body has moved away from perfect health and into a diseased state. The theory goes that if you were completely healthy, your system would produce no mucoid plaque because it wouldn’t need to. When the body has been chronically subjected to (or put under attack by) drugs (such as aspirin or alcohol), salt, heavy metals (including dental mercury), toxic chemicals, parasites, harmful microbes and their toxins, and circulating immune complexes (immune cells locked onto undigested particles or foreign substances in the bloodstream), it produces mucoid plaque to protect itself.

The trouble is once the mucoid plaque is created, for whatever biologically important reason, it is not routinely excreted from the intestines. Instead it lodges in the numerous folds and crevices of this large organ and can remain there for many years. Over time, the mucoid plaque grows thicker, firmer, and more widespread—colonizing, as it were, the tennis court–sized interior of the intestines. Old feces adhere to the plaque and are not removed during a normal bowel motion. The plaque slows down intestinal action, both waste excretion and nutrient absorption. It can harbor pathogens, including bacteria and parasites, which actually hide underneath the plaque; it may block the normal outflow of lymph and mucin drainage. It binds toxins to itself and contributes to bowel toxicity, slowly emitting toxins into the bloodstream. Finally, plaque creates a friendly environment for disease, in some cases for colon cancer and gastric carcinomas. Gradually your immune system is weakened as the chronically toxic bowel environment destroys useful bacteria. Your liver becomes overburdened by the unprocessed intestinal toxins, and nerve meridian points in the intestines related to hundreds of other parts of the body are compromised. A toxic bowel results in toxic blood and lymph, toxic organs and cells, and toxic function.

The bowel “feeds” every organ, tissue, and cell in our bodies, so when the quality of feeding from the digestive system is contaminated or of poor quality, the cells and organs elsewhere in the body will be compromised and grow sluggish and inefficient. So while mucoid plaque is “natural” in that the intestines produce it, it is most unnatural in that the presence of a large amount of it indicates a high degree of intestinal ill health. When the intestines are ill, you will be ill.

20 EASY WAYS TO LOSE WEIGHT & DETOX FAST

August 25, 2013 by  
Filed under Constipation, Weight Loss

Comments Off

Thank you Folks! :lol

1. STAY UNCONSTIPATED USING COLONICS OR USE A NATURAL INEXPENSIVE PLANT FOOD SUPPLEMENT TO HELP YOU POOP THREE TO FIVE TIMES PER DAY

 

WHY?

Staying unconstipated with colonics and or a natural plant food supplement are safe and effective ways of removing waste from the large intestine. Keeping the colon clean helps the system run at an optimum capacity, keeping metabolism high. Now I have heard nearly all reasons “WHY” people don’t poop daily like for instance; I can’t poop in the morning I have to get to work; can’t poop at work; at school; around my boyfriend; going to a wedding; flying on a trip;going on a date;going to a game; don’t want to get up during sleep;can’t use a portapottie;don’t use public rest rooms etc… anyone else have any more I haven’t heard?

2. USE ORGANIC, UNREFINED, VIRGIN COCONUT OIL 1 TBSP IN THE MORNING AND 1 TBSP IN THE LATE AFTERNOON

 

WHY?

The medium chain essential fatty acid or EFA provide an immediate energy source, speeding metabolism, while lessening transit time of other food products in the digestive track.

 

3. ONE TBSP RAW ORGANIC APPLE CIDAR VINEGAR BEFORE EACH MEAL

 

WHY?

Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid which stimulates the production of stomach acid. The more stomach acid the better. It will break down your food into smaller molecules. The smaller the molecules the more efficiently your intestines and liver can absorb the nutrients it needs. The faster it gets the nutrients the faster your metabolism gets.

 

 

4. TAKE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES WITH EACH MEAL

 

WHY?

 

It’s an excellent chance that your body is not producing enough digestive enzymes to deal with the food that you are consuming. Digestive enzymes will speed up metabolism and reduce gas and bloating. Digestive enzymes make your food digest quicker and easier and go through your system much faster. Extra lipase, protease, amylase, cellulase, lactase can only benefit the system and speed metabolism.

 

5. DRINK WATER IMMEDIATELY IN THE AM

 

WHY?

It is a gentle way to start your body’s metabolism and it is the best natural appetite suppressant. Warm water versus cold water. Cold constricts the body channels and you want the channels open to flush out toxins and better absorption of nutrients to come.

 

6. EAT ORGANIC GRAPEFRUITS AND APPLES ALL DAY

 

WHY?

 

Both are natural appetite suppressants. And because they are mostly water, low in calories, low in sodium, high in potassium, high in fat burning enzymes and loaded with vitamins and minerals, they assimilate quickly into your system. Grapefruits are 90% water. The more water you intake the more you will increase your metabolism. Apples have a high water and high fiber content too, giving you that feeling of satiety longer, hence eating less.

 

7. EAT A BIG SALAD FOR LUNCH AND DINNER AND LIMIT IT TO FOUR ITEMS ONLY

 

WHY?

 

Salad items are usually full of water, fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, and there is usually copious chewing involved with eating salads. This all sends messages of satiety to the brain. The limitation of four items is a food combining issue. Sending too many items down the track at one meal delays transit time, creating gas and bloat.

 

 

8. DRINK 4-6 CUPS YERBA MATE’ or Woolong TEA/ day

 

WHY?

These teas have a Thermo-genic Effect” that shrinks appetite and tames cravings. These products produce heat which increases your metabolism.

 

9.Juice Fasting with The Juiced Up Juice Bar 

 

WHY?

The less one chews & eats the more the body turns to its own fat storage for energy. Gives the digestive track a rest. Plant food juice contains numerous vitamins and minerals, enzymes, amino acids, natural sugars and agents which are anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial & act as natural diuretics. It’s also a great opportunity for detoxification.

 

10. REDUCE OR ELIMATE FLOURIDE INTAKE

 

WHY?

 

 

Fluoride creates hypothyroidism. Hypo or under active thyroid function. Excess fluoride correlates with all thyroid-related issues. When there is excess of fluoride in the body it can interfere with the function of the thyroid gland. It is possible that iodine deficiency, which is the most common cause of brain damage and mental disability in the world, could be lessened by simply cutting back on the use of fluoride. Definitely filter your drinking water, and consider a shower filter since your skin filters gallons of tap water during one shower.

 

 

11. NO FOOD AFTER 6 PM

WHY?

 

This habit lessens the chances of you going belly up with a full meal in your gut. The natural circadian rhythm of sleep allows your organs to detox in an orderly fashion during the night. A full meal in the digestive track at bedtime stops that detox time, slows down metabolism, builds toxins, and encourages fat storage.

 

12. Discontinue use of main stream perfumes, fragrances, colognes and scented toiletries to include air fresheners.

 

WHY?

 

Those industries are not monitored or policed. Those industries may use any chemical they choose and they do. The chemicals they use are hormone disruptors. When you wear and use those products, you disrupt your hormonal balance and gain weight. You wear or use it strong enough and it disrupts other people’s hormones. Second hand hormone disrupting going on all over the place, especially at the beach with the new spray sun tan lotions.

 

13. Do not eat GMO foods

 

WHY?

Genetically Modified foods are created by forcing genes from one species, such as bacteria, viruses , animals or humans, into the DNA of a food crop or animal to introduce their desired trait.

Eating Genetically Modified Foods damages, livers & kidneys. Serious health risks are associated with genetically modified foods, including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation. Because they are a fake food, your body does not recognize them so bloating, gastritis, constipation, weight gain and sickness will soon ensue.

 

 

 

 

14. Do not use a microwave oven

WHY?

 

Microwaving food and drink alters the product structure on a molecular level and degrades the food. Then your body does not recognize the product. It sits in the digestive track moving extremely slowly, hence weight gain. When you microwave food the result is a carcinogenic food you then eat a carcinogenic food and you get cancer. So microwaving food causes cancer and weight gain.

 

15. Use Dry Far Infra-red Saunas

WHY?

 

Dry Far Infrared saunas burn up 600 calories in a 30 minute session sitting right still on your rump. At 150 degrees the body’s detoxification portal exits open wide and toxins from organs are allowed to flow freely carried out by sweat. Also your heart rate slowly comes up to your ideal aerobic zone in the session, effortlessly raising your metabolism and losing weight.

 

16. Follow an alkaline diet with proper food combining

 

WHY?

 

An Alkaline diet with proper food combinations is naturally anti-inflammatory. When food enters the alimentary canal in improper combinations that causes inflammation. Inflammation is swelling of tissues with extra water. Extra water equals extra weight gain. Following a alkaline diet equals weight loss and sickness free. Following an acidic diet equals weight gain , cancer and slow painful death. The worst acidic items that can be ingested are in sodas. Sodas contain sugar, HFC, aspartame, phospheric acid, colors, caffeine and those are only what us food investigators know of. Powerful companies are not policed well.

 

17. Employ an 8 minute walk one way and an 8 minute walk back

WHY?

 

That equals 97 and ½ hours of movement over a year’s span. Even if you are already exercising, this practice will easily allow for even more weight loss. Most people find it doable to simply walk in one direction for 8 minutes, and back than to plan in an hour workout on a tight schedule.

 

18. Use Astaxanthin daily

 

WHY?

 

Astaxanthin is a rich red algae based anti-oxidant that is nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory product. Protects all parts of the cells from oxidative damage. If you protect your cells that equals les inflammation, hence less weight gain and more weight loss.

19. Stay out of fluorescent lighting

 

WHY?

Fluorescent light bulbs emit microwave radiation causing cancer and inflammation. When you interfere with your own tiny electrical currents existing in your body that interferes with your own chemical reactions, hence inflammation and weight gain.

20. Hire an energetic re-balancer and clear out trapped emotions from your chakras

WHY?

Most of us have stress and emotional ups and downs daily. These emotions become trapped in your corresponding chakra. Trapped emotions stem from things like personal power, ego, friendships, sexuality, reproduction, survival, empathy, communication, fear, love and judgment all leave an emotional mark in one or more of your chakras. After decades of psychic sludge trapped in that particular chakra vortex, the corresponding body organ involved with it will not heal or come to full potential. So for example if you are in an unfulfilling relationship that would correspond with your sacral chakra or your belly area making harder to lose weight.

As an aside here is a NO NO list:

NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

Aspartame: the worst of the worst when it comes to sweeteners (and the reason why diet sodas and colas are just as bad as the regular kind), aspartame is the sweetener with over 92 different health side effects that have been associated with it’s consumption including brain tumors, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders and epilispsy/seizures and more.

NO MSG

NO DIET SODAS PERIOD NO BUBBLES

NO FAST FOODS OR CHAIN PLACES

NO HFCS

NO WHITE SUGAR OR FLOUR

NO TRANS FATS AND HYDROGENATED

NOTHING FROM A BAG, BOX, CAN OR JAR

 

 

These products are manmade and are full of chemicals or just a chemical standing alone. These chemicals are designed to make you hungrier quicker, and fatter faster. They are designed to get you addicted to more food. In England their government restricts the chemical additives of manufactured foods to only 2-4 chemicals.

 

Someone take a guess at how many different chemicals our Food and Drug Administration or FDA allows manufacturers to add to our foods. 2222

WHAT IS GMO? Agricultural Crops That Have a Risk of Being GMO

July 3, 2013 by

Comments Off

THANK YOU FOLKS!   :lol:

Are GMOs safe?
Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. In the U.S., the government has approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale. Increasingly, Americans are taking matters into their own hands and choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment.

GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.

For consumers, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date on food ingredients that are at-risk of being genetically modified, as the list of at-risk agricultural ingredients is frequently changing. As part of the Non-GMO Project’s commitment to informed consumer choice, they work diligently to maintain an accurate list of risk ingredients.

Agricultural products are segmented into two groups: (1) those that are high-risk of being GMO because they are currently in commercial production, and (2) those that have a monitored risk because suspected or known incidents of contamination have occurred and/or the crops have genetically modified relatives in commercial production with which cross-pollination (and consequently contamination) is possible. For more information on the Non-GMO Project’s testing and verification of risk ingredients and processed foods, please see the Non-GMO Project Standard.

High-Risk Crops (in commercial production; ingredients derived from these must be tested every time prior to use in Non-GMO Project Verified products (as of December 2011):

  • Alfalfa (first planting 2011)
  • Canola (approx. 90% of U.S. crop)
  • Corn (approx. 88% of U.S. crop in 2011)
  • Cotton (approx. 90% of U.S. crop in 2011)
  • Papaya (most of Hawaiian crop; approximately 988 acres)
  • Soy (approx. 94% of U.S. crop in 2011)
  • Sugar Beets (approx. 95% of U.S. crop in 2010)
  • Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash (approx. 25,000 acres)

ALSO high-risk: animal products (milk, meat, eggs, honey, etc.) because of contamination in feed.

Monitored Crops (those for which suspected or known incidents of contamination have occurred, and those crops which have genetically modified relatives in commercial production with which cross-pollination is possible; we test regularly to assess risk, and move to “High-Risk” category for ongoing testing if we see contamination):

  • Beta vulgaris (e.g., chard, table beets)
  • Brassica napa (e.g., rutabaga, Siberian kale)
  • Brassica rapa (e.g., bok choy, mizuna, Chinese cabbage, turnip, rapini, tatsoi)
  • Curcubita (acorn squash, delicata squash, patty pan)
  • Flax
  • Rice
  • Wheat

Common Ingredients Derived from GMO Risk Crops
Amino Acids, Aspartame, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbate, Vitamin C, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Ethanol, Flavorings (“natural” and “artificial”), High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Lactic Acid, Maltodextrins, Molasses, Monosodium Glutamate, Sucrose, Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP), Xanthan Gum, Vitamins, Yeast Products.

You may also be wondering about…

  • Tomatoes: In 1994, genetically modified Flavr Savr tomatoes became the first commercially produced GMOs. They were brought out of production just a few years later, in 1997, due to problems with flavor and ability to hold up in shipping. There are no genetically engineered tomatoes in commercial production, and tomatoes are considered “low-risk” by the Non-GMO Project Standard.
  • Potatoes: Genetically modified NewLeaf potatoes were introduced by Monsanto in 1996. Due to consumer rejection by several fast-food chains and chip makers, the product was never successful and was discontinued in the spring of 2001. There are no genetically engineered potatoes in commercial production, and potatoes are considered “low-risk” by the Non-GMO Project Standard.
  • Salmon: A company called AquaBounty is currently petitioning the FDA to approve its genetically engineered variety of salmon, which has met with fierce consumer resistance. 
  • Pigs: A genetically engineered variety of pig, called Enviropig was developed by scientists at the University of Guelph, with research starting in 1995 and government approval sought beginning in 2009. In 2012 the University announced an end to the Enviropig program, and the pigs themselves were euthanized in June 2012.

You clicked in on this page! Thank you. :lol:

 

This is a toxic world that we are living in today. It seems like everything we eat, breathe, or touch has the capacity to add toxins to our bodies. There are toxins in our foods and water (pesticides, herbicides, chemicals in processed foods), toxins in the air (pollution and environmental toxins), toxins in products we use around the house (chemical cleaning products, for example).

I’ve seen plenty of advertisements about products or systems or diets that are used to detoxify and cleanse our bodies. Some seem quite delicious; some systems seem downright uncomfortable. For the most part, though, almost every detoxification program has to do with nutrition.

Proper nutrition helps our bodies perform at maximum levels, keeps our minds healthy and organs clean and in proper working order. It also helps our bodies remove the toxins that build up (a diet with plenty of fresh, raw foods also is a good idea, while steering away from chemical-laden processed foods).

Hempseed and hempseed oil are key components in removing toxins from the body:

  • Hempseed and hempseed oil have the perfect ratio of Omega fatty acids. Omega fatty acids help balance the PH, bringing balance to the body.
  • Hempseeds have soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which help to cleanse the colon and intestinal tract and removing the toxins. If the toxins are not removed, they will be reabsorbed into the body.
  • Hempseeds contain chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps to clean the blood of impurities and will reduce cellular damage from toxins. Hemp also improves blood circulation.
  • The essential fatty acids in hemp help to retain oxygen in the cell membranes, which acts as a barrier to toxins.
  • Hemp’s essential fatty acids also “disperse throughout the body, giving biological systems the power to carry such substances as toxins to the surface of the skin, intestinal tract, kidneys, or lungs, where these substances can be discarded.” (innvista.com)
  • Hempseeds contain the amino acids cysteine and methionine. These amino acids stimulate the liver to remove the toxins from the body.

Introducing hempseeds and hempseed oil into the diet is an easy way to help your body detox, and promotes health and balance throughout the entire body.

Thank you for visiting us! :-o

 

In case your not aware of it, T.V., Radio, newspapers, magazines & other traditional, mainstream venues are mostly propaganda bought by drug company’s. How? They crept in and bought all or most of the advertising. Then a network owner has to advertise what the drug companys agree with, or they threaten to pull all advertising dollars. Since the majority of dollars rule, your information venue gets tainted with drug company agendas.

That said, I give you links to a E-zine by “Health Keepers”. Health Keepers is produced by a woman, Julie Whitman Kline. She owns a college that teaches us how to help people heal themselves without drugs, surgery, or injections. Julie & her writers, produce a magazine each quarter with valuable healthcare freedom information, or I should “The LOSS of Valuable  Health Care Freedom” information.

The links below will take you to the information that will expose what the  drug companys, our government, the American Medical Association are doing “Behind” your backs.  There is also very useful Natural health care information, written by the worlds most informative Natural Paths. Some of the writers are the teaches for the school and have been for decades.  You will be amazed at the information in these pages.  To find out what is happening to your health care freedom in “YOUR” state, just click on the links below:

and remember ……….

Only western medicine must be administered at gunpoint!

Of all the systems of medicine that exist around the world (Ayurvedic medicine, Amazon rainforest medicine, Aboriginal medicine, Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine, etc.), Conventional Western Medicine CWM) is the ONLY system so dangerous, deadly and unwelcomed that it must be administered under the threat of imprisonment.

 

 

 

Some Unknown Weight Loss Tips

:lol: Thank you very much for clicking into our website! :-P

Most people want to lose all the fat in their bodies. Well, the brain is almost all fat, so if you lost all the fat in your body, you would have no brain,  then the only career you could have would be a politician!

 

I always say, if you want to lose weight,the fastest in the world,  try colonics with colonic irrigation. It works almost every time. Everyday we work in our clinic, clients lose  two to three pounds of “fecal” debris  weight loss is experienced in a session. Now if it was “FAT” weight we would be trillionnaires here! However, the way you sustain your weight loss is that, since you un- congest your intestines with colonic irrigation, your foods are absorbed astronomically better, and so your liver empties out toxins better,  your not as hungry, so you eat less. Yes it’s true, most big overweight people can not eat enough, they’ll tell you their starving! And they are. They are not getting the nutrients into the cells, so the cells are screaming for nutrition.Feed me feed me feed me is all they here all day long.

Find a colonic therapist right in your city, go to  http://www.i-act.org/    Then click on ‘REFERRALS”. Type in your zip code and Voila! A colonic therapist in your own backyard.

 

Now say you don’t want to do colon hydrotherapy with colonics. Then I will give you one weight loss tip each time I write. I will keep it under “WEIGHT LOSS TIPS”  category.

Here we go….first tip!

1) Get rid of all non-stick cook ware.

why? Because non stick layers  are made from toxic chemicals  likePoly(tetrafluoroethylene) , or PTFE, that are released into your food when you cook them. Then you eat the foods and the chemicals congest your cells. Your cells are marred with a chemical sludge and they can not perform their jobs. Furthermore, PTFE is a carcinogenic….it does cause cancer.  I know it is a bitch to go to stainless steel cookware because of the cleanup, but you will get use to it and you will see a difference.
