The Great Organic Deceivers

August 21, 2012

Which organic brands really believe in organic—and which are working behind the scenes to betray natural health consumers? It’s time for a boycott. Action Alert!

Many natural and organic brands are actually owned by huge conglomerates that don’t support sustainable, organic, non-GMO, non-toxic agriculture. In fact, their product labels are often designed to mislead consumers just so they can grab a share of the lucrative health-conscious consumer market.

Even worse, many of the conglomerate companies that produce so-called natural foods—and even some labeled “organic”—are allied with the biotech industry fighting by any means to defeat “Label GMO,” a.k.a. Prop 37, the California Right to Know 2012 Ballot Initiative. Why are they doing such a thing? Because they sell more food that has GMO ingredients than organic food, and don’t want consumers to have a choice about the GMO. They especially don’t want consumers to know what is actually in their so-called “natural” products.

Keep in mind that the term “natural” has no legal or regulatory meaning at all: FDA has never created a definition for it and claims that “it is difficult to define a food product that is ‘natural’ because the food

Vegan Myths Debunked

May 31, 2012

Our post today features a special song from YouTube sensation Jonathan “Song-A-Day” Mann. Jonathan has been writing a song each day since January 1, 2009.

His videos have been featured everywhere from Boing Boing to the Huffington Post to Tech Crunch, as well as national television, such as a live performance on “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

Steve Jobs even opened his “Antennagate” iPhone4 press conference with a video and song created by Mann.

Many of Jonathan’s videos on other subjects have reached over one million views, but Jonathan works hard to spread his passion for the vegan lifestyle.

Along with his girlfriend, he has put together an incredibly quirky video about the myths associated with being a vegan and the alternatives to meat and dairy products, to the tune of 74,000 views so far.

With your help, we’d love for the message to reach an even wider audience and continue growing the movement. Please share this one with your friends and family, we loved it!

Spring Cleaning Juice Fast Day 8

The Spirituality of Cleansing

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

I can’t believe I am on day 8 of my organic raw juice fast. There has been an abundance of letting go, which has manifested itself in every area of my life. I needed to be away from the computer for the last few days to reconnect with myself, the earth, the universe, and the source of all life. It doesn’t matter what you call the supreme being- Elohim, Adonai, Bhagwaan, Yahweh, Lord, Father in Heaven, Allah, Bavenda,- Each religion and culture has a name for our source- there is nothing like cleansing the body to get closer to this magnificence. I feel that has happened, and want to focus on that for today’s blog post.

Many people begin a juice fast with various expectations, but a big one is because they want to lose some weight. I have to admit, that was one of my deciding factors this time. We sometimes forget what this clearing will do for our consciousness, and our connection to everything around us. Once we let go of years of accumulated waste, we create an opening. This opening gives us a glimpse of our life. Our habits, routines, shadow side, emotions- with great clarity. It is

Spring Cleaning Juice Fast – Day 3

The Magic of Enemas and Colonics

By Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

Tonight’s blog is going to focus on the magic and glory of the enema/ colonic. My third day of juice fasting met with discomfort for much of the day. I woke up feeling fine as far as cold symptoms go, but a low-grade headache continued into the day. It got progressively worse, to the point where I just couldn’t work anymore. I decided it was time to do an enema.

There are misconceptions and weird opinions with regard to enemas and colonics. I realize this is not an easy topic, and many people just don’t want to talk about it. We live in a society where we announce we are going to use the bathroom but never discuss what actually goes on when we are in there. Don’t worry, I’m not going to provide pictures or grotesque descriptions. But I think this is a topic worthy of discussion, because it is the very thing that alleviated my intense headache. Quite frankly, enemas are magic. The enema worked much faster and efficiently then taking an Advil or Motrin. There is no doubt that enemas (and colonics) could heal what ails you. Not only that, they are essential when doing a cleanse.
