infographic about clean label #food trends from the #CleanLabel Conference 2013 http://www.ddwcolor.com/notes-from-clean-label-conference-in-chicago
Smart Health Talk thrilled organic demand high. Also means Big 10 corps will make moves to take over organic industry and allow GMO ingredients. Prevent by buying products from organic companies not owned by big corporate. These companies have used our dollars against us and take our dollars to other countries. Keep $$$ in hands of true organic companies, local business/farmers to control food safety. Use app "Buycott" to identify foods MADE/NOT MADE by companies that paid to DEFEAT OF PROP 37.

Is Your Favorite Organic Brand Partnering with Monsanto? A flood of biotech money has rolled into Washington State to defeat I-522 from labeling GMOs (a citizens ballot initiative). Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, Bayer, BASF and the GMA now totaling over $11 million against Yes on 522. Consumers might be surprised to find out that some of their favorite organic and natural brands are hiding behind their lobbyist, the Grocery Manufacturers Association currently spending $2.2M to defeat I-522.

A grim infographic from National Geographic on dwindling seed diversity. It should be noted that there's some dispute over these findings. While there may still be a huge number of seeds to choose from, the diversity of what’s actually planted the ground has shrunk in the past one hundred years.
I wish I had more space to garden and work on seedsaving... In the last 80 years, we lost 93% of variety In our food seeds. The infographic visualizes this dangerous, scary development.
Food for Thought
This National Geographic infographic by John Tomanio is staggering. Using the metaphor of a tree, it charts the loss of U.S. seed variety from 1903 to 1983. And what you see is that we’ve lost about 93% of our unique seed strands behind some of the most popular produce.
Loss of seed variety over the past century. From the National Geographic.

GMOs Your Right To Know -- Check out which "natural" brands you’ve come to trust are owned by huge corporations that want nothing to do with GMO labeling.

Most corn is Monsanto corn and they have it genetically engineered so when bugs eat it, their stomachs explode! They say there are no long term effects in humans (this has been proven untrue) We wonder why health problems are on the rise. Corn & other non-organic fruits, veggies & meats have been genetically engineered since the mid-90s without the American public knowing. It's the largest experiment on a group of unknowing people ever. Stand up & say NO! Europe wouldn't allow it, why should we?
Many natural food companies are owned by large corporations who oppose Prop 37. Know the organic leaders who need your support in the fight for GMO labeling!
beware: knowing that there is a shift in the consumer market towards natural, organic foods, many corporations have deceptively labeled their packaging to trick consumers into buying their Genetically Engineered “natural” product.

Who Owns Organic? "Organic Industry Structure" Chart from Philip H. Howard of Michigan State University.
Organic Industry Structure - Acquisitions by the top 30 Food Processors in NA Changes since June 2009 include (1) Coca-Cola fully acquiring Honest Tea in March, 2011; (2) Nestle’s acquisitions of Cadbury (and Green & Black’s) in January, 2010, and Sweet Leaf Tea in May, 2011; (3) Sara Lee’s acquisition of Aidell’s Sausage for $87 million in May, 2011; and (4) General Mills’ acquisition of Food Should Taste Good in February, 2012.
When viewing this information, it becomes much clearer as to why many ‘health food’ companies are deceiving you about the ingredients in their products. It’s time to move away from companies that have been bought up by corporations like Kraft and Coca-Cola and support independent organic brands that actually abstain from GMOs, pesticides, and hazardous additives. The fact of the matter is that these corporate giants know that people do not want to buy their health-crushing garbage anymore, and a

Via 'You Are What You Eat…And You’re Eating Trash' - by Beth Buczynski @ care2 make a difference: «... the health of the environment is inextricably linked to the quality of our food system. Pollution anywhere on the planet, even far from farms and fields, has an uncanny ability to work itself into the things we eat on a daily basis.»
Eating fresh fish is part of a healthy diet. But if the fish we are eating are living on a diet that includes the garbage we are tossing in the ocean, then does that mean we are essentially eating our own trash?
Eating our own garbage and killing oceans life.
Exactly why I dont eat any sea creatures....

What's wrong with our outdated food system?
Food Wasting, Global Food, Foodsystem Infographic, Website, Based Food, Foodsystem Farms, Climate Change, Cooking Infographic, Food System
From Good.is "Around the world every night, one in seven people go to bed hungry—that's almost one billion people. People are hungry not because there isn't enough food produced but because our food system is broken. In fact, 80% of the world's hungry are directly involved in food production. We can address this hunger if we support small-scale food producers, tackle climate change, and reduce food waste."
Check out this cool infographic about our food system. Climate change is already affecting global food production and will continue to do so unless something is done. via climate action

Metal Art By Cal Lane: She Makes Crude Metal Look Like Delicate Lace
Lace cut out shovel by Cal Lane
Using her trusty blowtorch, artist and welder Cal Lane burns delicate lace-like patterns into reclaimed steel objects. She says she thinks of the original materials - such as shovels, manhole covers, dumpsters, wheelbarrows and i-beams - as “male” because of their industrial nature. Lane enjoys pushing the dichotomy of feminine and masculine by combining patterns of domesticity with these cold, harsh symbols of masculine blue collar labor.
