Whole Foods confirms it knowingly sells products containing Monsanto's genetically modified corn: Don't ask, don't tell!

(NaturalNews) Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association has been protesting Whole Foods for several years, demanding the company label the GMOs it sells. Whole Foods management has foolishly ignored him.

In fact, until recently his efforts achieved relatively little traction, but all of a sudden "he appears to be a prophet," a friend told me yesterday. Yep, Ronnie Cummins was right, and the fact that Whole Foods has sternly resisted labeling the GMOs it sells has the company in a virtual P.R. panic.

Positive Habits

Here's a little riddle for you....

"I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or I am your heaviest burden. I will push you onward or I will drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Half of the things you do, you might just as well hand over to me and I will be able to do them much quicker. I am not easily managed. You must really be firm with me. Show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons I will do it automatically. I am the servant of all great men and women and, alas, of all failures as well. Those who are great - I have made great. Those who are failures - I have made failures. I am not a machine, although I work with all the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a man. You can run me for profit or you can run me for ruin, it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you. Who am I? I am habit."

Do you have bad habits standing in the way of your success? Are there good things you can make a daily habit that would contribute to your success?

Tell us about some of the positive habits you feel make you successful!

California Green Chemistry Initiative - Proposed Regulations


Below is an excerpt from Donna Maria's Indie Business Blog. Please take the time to read the full article as it could affect you if you sell products in California - whether directly or online.
It has come to my attention that the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is considering new regulations that, if enacted as drafted, would eliminate what it calls “chemicals of concern” (COCs) from a variety of consumer products, including cosmetics, that are sold in California. The proposed regulations would apply to manufacturers, marketers, importers and retailers, and would include evaluating and prioritizing a list of product and COC combinations so that a list of “Priority Products” can be created. If a product is deemed a “Priority Product,” the manufacturer will be required to perform analyses on the product so the effect of COCs in the product can be limited.

Learn More About Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Aromatherapy Manual

The Aromatherapy Practitioner Reference Manual
by Sylla Sheppard-Hanger, Founder/Director of the Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy in Tampa, Florida.

This is a Fantastic Book and a “Must Have” for anyone who uses Essential Oils in their body care products! It is a Complete Reference book of Aromatic Plant Extracts, Index of Biological activities of Phytochemicals, Clinical Index and Taxonomical Index.

There is a lot of confusion in the world about essential oils and their healing properties. The Aromatherapy Practitioner Reference Manual is the result of many combined years of research and practical experience and clarifies about 350 of the most commonly offered essential oils (and absolutes) in today's marketplace.

"This book allows a practitioner to look up a problematic indication, understand the required bio-chemicals necessary to effect treatment, and find the essential oils for use. Included are over 340 botanical species with all known common names, their commercial availability, their predominant bio-chemical classes, as well as predominant bio-chemicals inherent therein. Anyone could easily start with the essential oil name, and find out what particular treatments could be effected with the information provided. In the Chart, one could immediately find the traditional uses and actions, the purposes and methods of delivery applications, toxicity and contra-indications, along with their traditional uses in perfumery. Also, morphologic and character types are included, as well as all relevant esoteric relations. Although there may be criticism from the scientific community that esoteric uses have been included, the authors feel that to truly treat in a holistic manner, this information needed to be included."

Fall Favorites...

Fall is my favorite time of year. Harvest time, hay rides, going to the orchard, carving pumpkins, making scarecrows...list the goes on.

I also have favorite treats I like to make this time of year that are very simple - like spiced cider and trail mix.

For cider - Just simmer some cider on the stove or in a slow cooker with some allspice, cinnamon and cloves.

Easy Trail Mix - Just toss some dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds, raisins, dark chocolate chips and raw almonds. For a more candy oriented mix - Just toss some candy corn, peanuts and chocolate candy pieces together.

We'd love to hear some of your favorite fall recipes.
