Also known as sweet marjoram or wild marjoram, oregano oil is native to western and southwestern Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean. In the Greek language it is the combination of two words: mountain (oros) and joy (ganus). Although often used as a culinary spice for its distinct flavor and aroma, oregano is also a medicinal power-house. Oregano is an amazing healing plant due to the following constituents:
Firstly, oregano contains Carvacrol, which is known to be a powerful antimicrobi [...]
The bloated, police-state government agencies we have allowed to become our ‘keepers’ instead of protectors are trying to stop the rising tide of medical marijuana legalization throughout the country. Twenty states have already passed medical marijuana laws, but the DEA Administrator, Michele Leonhart, is publishing lies about marijuana and trying to block the study of medical marijuana benefits – as if most aren’t already well known.
The imbecilic notions and archaic stance against medi [...]
Kroger, the largest supermarket chain in the U.S. (by revenue), realizes that consumers care about what they put on their tables, but the company is misleading the nation about some foods, making unacceptable false claims. One product the company is lying about is called Simple Truth Natural Chicken, claimed to be ‘cage-free’ and ‘raised in humane conditions’. These claims have led to a recent lawsuit against Kroger.
These claims are extremely confusing and meant only to generate more [...]
Syngenta may be waiting a long time to export its toxic GMO MIR162 corn to China. The sovereign state has still not approved the genetically modified strain which has been turned away in large volumes from Chinese ports since last November.
The country’s agricultural minister and its biosafety committee is still evaluating materials sent to them by Syngenta. MIR corn has been planted across the US in more than 3% of our acreage and has also been planted in Brazil and Argentia. Fortunately, t [...]

The FDA states that MSG is “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS), though they admit that many people identify themselves as sensitive to MSG. In studies with such individuals given MSG or a placebo, scientists have not been able to consistently trigger reactions. A new study published in the Journal of Headache Pain reveals this just isn’t so. Just a single dose of monosodium glutamate (MSG) caused headaches in healthy subjects that were tested.
Sadly, this additive is found in just ab [...]
When it comes to marijuana laws and the attitudes towards them, it’s a mixed bag that’s constantly being shook up. In Colorado, for instance, you can walk into a store and legally buy a bag of marijuana, but in other states, you can go to jail for smoking a joint. Though a poll last year found the majority of Americans to support marijuana legalization, that feeling doesn’t seem to extend to Iowa—where most people oppose it. Still, that same survey found growing support for medical marij [...]

India has some of the strongest anti-GMO activists in the world, and for good reason. But now the country’s Environmental Minister is giving the O.K. for bullying biotech and Big Ag to conduct trials for more than 200 transgenic varieties of GMO crops. Minister M Veerappa Moily is getting some serious backlash from a parliamentary committee due to this health damaging decision.
Moily is being criticized by the committee since it has repeatedly recommended disallowing GM crop trials until the [...]
It has been a long battle, fighting to save real food while going against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that can cause cancer, attack human fetal cells, and instigate miscarriage. But the fight isn’t over, no. In fact, the California Senate Health Committee passed SB 1381 this past week which would require the labeling of all genetically engineered foods. It is a step in the right direction for food freedom.
Senator Noreen Evans introduced the bill, and Rebecca Spector of the Cen [...]
You don’t have to be a doctor or even a parent to notice the increasing number of children shouldering heavy diagnoses. Conditions like ADHD and autism are far more common now than they were just a few decades ago. While some of this could be attributed to Big Pharma’s need for a greater demand (and conventional doctors answering that call in kind), to ignore the potentially disastrous effects of common pesticides, solvents, and other toxins in our world would be remiss.
A new study publishe [...]
A whopping 780 million people around the world can’t take a clean, pure glass of water to their lips to quench their thirst. Purifying water can be expensive and cumbersome in many countries, and without access to clean water or sanitation, disease runs rampant, and many people die unnecessarily from water-borne illness. Fortunately, due to the collaboration of the University of Botswana and researchers from Uppsala University, a natural and inexpensive way to purify water has been uncovered - [...]
