Organic agriculture ravaged by chemtrails - Monsanto seizes the opportunity, profits and dominates

Organic agriculture ravaged by chemtrails - Monsanto seizes the opportunity, profits and dominates | Parenting | Scoop.it

Organic farmers have yet another environmental hazard to contend with, this time  compliments of the U.S. government in the form of chemtrails. A mess of toxic  chemicals, these harmful sprays pollute the soil, water and air while  compromising the health of humans, animals and plants. And now Monsanto has  developed seeds that will weather the effect of the sprays, creating a tidy  profit for the corporation while organics suffer. If this poisoning continues,  true organic farming may become impossible in the not so distant future.

New Big Sister Gift Ideas

New Big Sister Gift Ideas | Parenting | Scoop.it
Becoming a Big Sister is a very exciting but often confusing event. Now is a good time to assure your older child that she holds a special place in your heart and that no one can replace her.
Katie Colette's insight:

Ideas on how to prepare Big Sister for baby's arrival. Toddlers are initially very excited about the new baby but may get jealous and upset about the shift of parental attention. It's important to remind your toddler that she still holds a special place in your heart and involve her in caring for baby as much as possible. Also, don't make her feel left out when baby and Mom are showered with gifts. The Big Sister needs a gift too, especially the type of gift that will help to keep her occupied when parents are attending to the new baby or a toy that will allow her to act like Mom or Dad caring for the newborn.

Organic Consumers Association calls out Dr. Oz for 'flip-flopping' with high-profile attacks on organics | Parenting | Scoop.it

(NaturalNews) A few days ago, I sounded the alarm on Dr. Oz and his attack on organic consumers. In my article published here on Natural News, I called Dr. Oz a "sellout" for his labeling of organic consumers as "elitist" and "snobs" while lying by omission in his TIME Magazine article that failed to disclose the pesticide and GMO risks of non-organic foods.
