Organic Vegetable Production. Market Related.

 
In an article in this month's edition, Jan. 2023, of American Vegetable Grower, page 12 it mentions some statistics. The title of this article is, "How Organic is the Vegetable Industry". Bullet points;
30% of all vegetable growers produce organic crops. Another 8% plan to do so within three years. 43% of organic  vegetable growers are planning to expand acreage within the next year.
For those who grow organic crops, we asked how much of their overall farm is dedicated to organic production. Almost half are all in, giving their entire farm over to organic methods. The percent of those farms that are using organic methods are as follows; less than 10% of their farm, 18%. 10% to 25% of their farm is at 7%. 25% to 50% of their farm is at 8%. 50% to 99% of the farms are at 22% and the farms out there that are doing organics are totally organic is at 45%.
To those farmers growing organics, they asked the question of, "Why Grow Organic?' the number 1 reason at 73% of the...

Metal Trace Minerals: Their Use in Humans. Overview of Essays # 1-5.

I would like to take a bit of time and make an overall review of the last 5 discussions that we have had on the Metal Trace Minerals. So here goes. 

In Essay #1- We have it titled Introduction and Discussion about Metal Trace Minerals. We talked about a number of trace minerals that used to be considered, in any amount, period. Now as we move forward with better research and better educated people doing the research with an open mind, we find that the old ideas are not really that accurate. We need these many so called toxic trace minerals. But we need them in a minute amount and with corresponding ratios to other trace minerals. But here in this discussion we focus on a number of the metal types. 

Basically the trust of this discussion is we learn about some of these as examples and see that each one has its own unique mechanism of action and that they interact with various proteins, metabolites and bio-molecules in an effort to make some action potential and allow that...

Metal Trace Minerals. Their use in Humans. Essay #5. Lanthanides and Soybeans.

Today we are going to have some fun and cross over the isle and talk a little bit about some Lanthanides and how they tie in with metal types of minerals. Along with that we will actually focus on one in particular namely, Phosphorus and make mention of a few related ones. So here goes.

When looking at the roles of any one of these minerals, without regard to what type of mineral they are, I am amazed at how similar the needs of a human being and the needs of the soil are in order to produce a good healthy plant. In simple terms, biological entities and plants both get their nutrients from the earth in one form or the other. The earth provides all of these various nutrients in ratios that are similar to the needs of plants and of these biological entities. But both plants and animals, IE: humans, might have very similar needs, many times these balanced ratios are prevented from becoming balanced as a natural course of life/nature. The causes are many, so we need to be careful to not...

Metal Trace Minerals. Their use in Humans, Essay #4, Diabetes.

  To begin this discussion we really need to talk about some technical stuff first. So here goes. One of the important aspects to this Obesity/Weight Loss/Diabetes thing is to get our head around the idea of look alike nutrients. Some of these will work somewhat well, but many others don’t work very well and really causes a lot of problems. For example in the Essay #3, we talked about Copper as part of an axis of minerals that have to be in balance. When you have a Copper deficiency, the metabolic system will start to look for anything that resembles Copper if it can’t get the actual Copper itself. When this happens, typically Mercury will show up. It makes sense because it tends to be everywhere, just hanging around waiting for a ride. To the metabolic system, Mercury has a look and feel of Copper. So, the door is opened to Mercury. But even though Mercury has a similar look and feel, much like a sibling in a family might have that resembling look. .We have...

Metal Trace Minerals. Their use in Humans, Essay #3. Obesity and Weight Loss.

Today we are going to look at the trace mineral aspect to weight loss. This essay will be looking at the direct roll of these types of trace minerals in Obesity and Weight loss. One must realize that Obesity and Weight Loss are not just about something simple, as simple as eating too much or being a couch potato. In reality those two areas are about the least concern about these two topics that can exist. 

Of course the ideas of physical inactivity and eating the wrong foods or even following a diet that does not fit the individual needs of the person will contribute to either an Obesity issue or even with an extreme weight loss situation. Both can be unhealthy. The ideal situation is to maintain a balanced weight profile that contributes to the person being and functioning in an optimal manner. When you consider that the English Language consists of 36 symbols of which 10 are referred to as numbers and the other 26 are referred to as letters. Think of all of the books in...

Metal Trace Minerals. Their use in Humans. Essay #2. Background.

Whenever we talk about these essential oils, minerals and a vast array of other “nutrient” related materials, we always have new questions. Asking questions is always a good thing. Many times these “asked” questions will spur on other questions that lead to new topics of discussion. This is a good thing. In the discussions that I lead, I try to simplify the ideas into comparative, usually comparative to what most people are familiar with. As a general rule, most people learn by comparing a new idea, concept, observation, etc., to what they already know. This is an effective way of understanding new things learned and what is more it tends to be retained more clearly and is much more easily and accurately assessed at a later date. 

One of the things that I have been looking at is a lot of the “Nutrients” that are not usually talked about. For the most part these are either classified as trace minerals or with some, extremely trace minerals....

Metal Trace Minerals. Their use in Humans. Essay #1. Introduction.

Today's discussion was on Metal Trace Minerals and how they are used and the effects of them. I wanted to do a brief written discussion and just hit the main points. This was a long discussion covering 2 related subjects. The one part was general ideas and the 2nd. part was dealing with Obesity and Diabetes. This essay will cover the first part of the discussion. The 2nd. part, which will be a different essay, will cover Obesity and Diabetes.
Many times the difference between a deficiency and a toxic amount is a very narrow parameter/area. Maintaining a balance within that narrow parameter.area is vital to good health and normal  functioning of life.
***There are several types of "Metal" elements, IE; Alkaline Metals, Alkaline Earth Metals, Transitional Metals, Post-Transitional Metals, Metalloids, Lanthanides and Actinides. In this discussion I will use "Metals" in general, when referencing any of these.
 
If you turn the clock back 25 years, anything discussion wise...

Bio-Balance Program; Simple Description of the Program.

 
The whole bottom line with the Bio Balance program is focused on the balancing of the Cerebral Spinal Fluid. This gets changed out about every 8 hours, or rather in essence renewed every 8 hours. Basically it is a delicate saline solution that is very sensitive to a proper balance. The reason why it is a delicate balance is because it has to be balanced within a narrow parameter of ratios of many nutrients. Why? In order to properly allow for electrical conductivity. We totally function on electricity. We are essentially blobs of clay that comes to life when electricity is applied to that clay. Take away the electrical charge, and yes, we are just a blob of clay that just sets there. Remember back in the past when a science fiction type movie came out? I think it was called Frankenstein or something along those lines. The mad scientist wanted to make a person. He did all this stuff, and the creation j( read; blob of clay), just laid there. Then he hooked up some wires,...

Essay; Uranium, Yttrium, Strontium and Cesium. The heavy hitters of minerals.

I would like to finish up this discussion as it relates to these 4 controlling minerals. While I have discussed a lot about Uranium, we need to move past that one and discuss these others. I have done a video on Strontium so that one is covered a bit, so we will mention it a bit. But when it comes to Yttrium and Cesium, we need to spend some more time here. These 4 minerals are in my opinion are likely among the most critical as they are totally controlling over the 4 major body systems that in turn runs the rest of the show. So in brief let's look at a quick recap. Now keep in mind that we are talking about the nutritional forms of these 4 minerals as to body activity. However, we also make mention of the “Industrial Versions” as well.  In this case the industrial form is the radioactive type/version. Also, keep in mind that the radioactive aspect is characterised by and extremely high level of energy. Yes, there are various types, but this is the general idea....
