As the annual gnashing-of-teeth on is-goop-really-worth-taking-on when there's Scientology [?, someone said this] circular firing squad assembles, people ask if overpriced essential oils are really that bad. First of all, they are. But wait, there's more. fda.gov/inspections-co…

🧐 “Ainsi commence le fascisme. Il ne dit jamais son nom, il rampe, il flotte, quand il montre le bout de son nez, on dit : C’est lui ? Vous croyez ? Il ne faut rien exagérer ! Et puis un jour on le prend dans la gueule et il est trop tard pour l’expulser.” Françoise Giroud
Hitler le considérait comme l’ami des juifs et a fait fermer les écoles. Aujourd’hui ? Bah c’est pas mieux, les mêmes en moderne veulent exactement la même chose et ils veulent mettre la pâtée aux anthroposophes mais pas que.

What's our #beef with beef?

Public interest on #climate, #biodiversity & #diet is rightly growing

#Meat is often at the heart of the debate but it's important we look past headlines & unpick the detail

THREAD 👇

Our #meat comes from different #farm systems

When animals are grazed on grass, as in #organic, this can have positive impacts on #climate & #nature. Intensively produced #grain-fed chicken & pigs can have the opposite effect

#EatBetterMeat #EatOrganic 👉ow.ly/MjQ150xjJI9
🐄🐖🐔 Intensively farmed animals are almost always fed on #grain & imported #soya

The production of animal feed can exhaust soils and drive #rainforest clearance

This is devastating for the #climate & #biodiversity

I believe that your blood group (an “unstudied” science) can also identify your race. (Not absolute. All that body in-breeding over generations.)

Oh, that “Annunaki” conspiracy theory, Ja; to throw the still clearer thinkers off this trail❓ (Ditto DNA)
So that no one even much notices, that even the Bible identifies Ab-RA-ham as being from Ur: a SUMERIAN❗️ (Doesn’t much fit that ENKI / ENLIL, story, there, does it❓🤔)
I also, don’t really believe in anyone called “Hathor.” So what does that say about the interpretation of all those “hieroglyphics” and finds like the “Rosetta stone❓”
#OccamsRazor: if they stole so much of the other history ...❓🤔

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

@CNNSotu Oddly, you discuss #eugenics in America in the 1920s, but you never mention #MargaretSanger, the founder of @PPFA, and her approval of #GermanEugenicSterilzation, #KKK, and other efforts to eliminate the production of offspring by the #unfit.
I say, "oddly" with respect to your omission because Sanger's love affair with #eugenics ran so deeply through her activism that it constituted a part of the masthead of her "Birth Control Review."
Sanger didn't pull punches about the intended use of #eugenic #sterilization:

"There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take off the burdens of the insane and the feeble-minded from your backs."

We think and plan a lot about the future of Vermont’s economy. Yesterday after touring an #organic dairy farm in Fairfield, Marcelle and I visited Liquid Measurements Systems, a growing aerospace firm in Georgia, #VT. @LMS_VT recently hired 3 engineers who relocated to #VT
.@LMS_VT competes on a global scale with its sensor products. These support cutting-edge aircraft like the #X59, Lockheed Martin’s partnership w/@NASA to build a supersonic aircraft. Thru 30 years this #SmallBusiness has supplied both commercial and military aerospace sectors.
The variation of these two enterprises is part of the beauty and strength of our state. #Vermont will have a vibrant future if we protect our agricultural heritage, and expand our manufacturing and tech sectors.

I'm making a thread of things/items which can substitute plastic that we use in day to day life. Feel free to mute the thread. Please to share and even add to the list. #ReplacePlastics #EnvironmentFriendly
1. Jute bags can replace your grocery shopping plastic bags, carry your lunch box, etc. It is 100% biodegradable, low energy recyclable and are any day more sturdy than your paper or plastic bag!

These are another jute bags. Simpler and of all sizes.

A little note about the #LessAndBetter meat message - I'm quite well known for calling this out as unhelpful and actually harmful to developing more sustainable farming systems, but it's not *just* because I sell meat, although that has given me an insight into the effect of such
a destructive message. The problem stems mainly from the vague nature of the message - less than what? better than what? what is better? what is 'meat'?- it's not at all clear, if you take greenhouse gas emissions, for example, cows emit methane so they must be bad, right, so
let's eat chicken instead? But hang on, chicken is the most intensively reared meat available, so how can that be 'better'? Well, maybe we first need to work out what we mean by 'meat' and how things have changed. According to FAO Stat, in the half century to the UK has changed

In this article, we express our critical position towards using #CRISPR to engineer #pigs so that do not reach puberty. #Livestock farming should be designed with animal sentience at its core, we should not modify #animals to fit inhumane systems. allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…
One aspect that the article does not mention and that we clearly indicated as being problematic is animal suffering during #experiments involving #CRISPR: painful #malformations, #abortions, are common "side effects" of such experiments.
Our original statement said "#CRISPR has a high potential for causing severe #animal #suffering during the research phases (such as abortions, perinatal mortality, malformations)

... sometimes solving one problem begets another. #Igbo culture most laudably seems to be pushed by those in diaspora, as seen on the social media. However, 90% of what is shown is mainly #masquerading and #dances. Very beautiful. Moreover, there is need to emphasis other aspects
Like marriage, farming, food, poetry, arts & crafts, industry, commerce, architecture etc. There has been a great awakening; most nostalgia and sometimes, a relapse because one can't compete with global trends. Idolatry is on the increase pitched unto 'say' Omenala, our #culture.
African Traditional #Religion (ATR) especially as practiced by ndi Igbo was just a tip of the iceberg about their culture. It was the culture of a typical Igbo person not to go hungry, as such manliness, was measured by the number of yam tubers one had in his barn and other #farm

Ok, here's my rant. For years I've been asking the #scicomm pros: what do we do if we see the next Andrew Wakefield coming? What is your guidance on that? I have never seen an answer. They focus downstream on "hesitant" parents. Which is also needed. But it's not enough.
Parents are hesitant because they hear bogus claims from crap peddlers. These are amplified by networks of both opportunistic practitioners of various stripes (with detox potions, antineoplastons, movies to sell, for example), as well as just true-beleevers of claims--zealots.
And sometimes it's coming just from pranksters and fakenews peddlers. Some of it may actually be coming from malicious actors and crafted misinformation campaigns in, say, Russia. buzzfeed.com/danvergano/fac… Or #organic industry funded malcontents like USRTK.

Ok - the latest #SchillingHousehold update;

It's not the first - and certainly won't be the last ... This is a hashtag you definitely want to follow.

The lovely @DelSchilling found her raisin that was lost.

Later, a high-pitched scream filled my ear.

I will now explain.
For about a day & a half, Del told me she was distressed.
She was eating #organic raisins, then said she was worried because she lost one.

She searched everywhere. not wanting a sticky raisin to mess up the couch where she watches TV.

Yes, I was enlisted to help in the search.
I had no luck. Del kept talking about her worries. She even woke me up late at night to tell me she didn't see it STILL.

She was perplexed & had no idea.

"Where could he be?" she asked. "Was he sad? alone? worried?"

I told her not to worry. She found it.

It was in her bra.

Calculations are based on $2,497 / 412 lbs. = $6.06, this average will run from $6.50 to $6.75 per pound for #organic pasture grazed, grass-fed beef. This is about the price of one pound of ground grass-fed beef at a #farmersmarket or at #WholeFoodsMarket. 1 pound is 0.453592kg
...apologies for the heart attacks based on earlier tweets with the extra zero. [I gave myself one too] This is the dressed weight price - or carcass of the cow alone.
