Everything That’s Wrong with Patent and Copyright Laws in One Brilliant Video

Everything is a Remix Part 4 from Kirby Ferguson on Vimeo.

Our system of law doesn’t acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries. But ideas aren’t so tidy. They’re layered, they’re interwoven, they’re tangled. And when the system conflicts with the reality… the system starts to fail.

A must watch video!

One note on the video link below.  The use of “organic” and “natural” can be a real source of confusion, and the attached video contains some great information.  The use of “natural” on products is not always bad.  There are some great products out there that are indeed natural and contain no pesticides or GMO’s – that’s good!.  But there are some that do – that’s bad.  It is very important to read your labels and know what you are buying, and who you are buying from.

It ‘s important to know what you are putting into your body. Don’t be misled!

Recently I was in a small market and I wanted some strawberry jam or preserves, real strawberry jam – I love it!  I found one that looked good.  It stated all natural strawberry preserves on the front label – it had a nice looking natural look to it and seemed a fair cost.  I put it into the cart and started to walk away when I noticed another brand that was organic.  I stopped and thought – read the label, dummy!

The brand that stated “all natural” was not really.  It did have some strawberries in it, but it was also high in fructose corn syrup and three different preservatives. Not very natural!  I then read the organic strawberry bottle and lo and behold it was 100% nothing added certified organic strawberry jam!

The contents look pretty much the same, but clearly they were not.  The organic jam may have cost more – but it was what I really wanted – real strawberry jam.

The other day we ran across a video that emphasizes the point even further.  “Blueberries found in blueberry bagels, cereals, breads and muffins are REAL blueberries right? Wrong! Award-winning investigative journalist Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, exposes the deceptive chemical ingredients and dishonest marketing of “blueberry” products from big-name food and cereal companies. The blueberries, it turns out, are made from artificial colors, hydrogenated oils and liquid sugars.”

This video really illustrates the point:

As you all know from our newsletters and website we try to push this message.  It really is important to know what you are buying.  Buying organic is very important.  This is why!

There are many companies marketing products that don’t contain what they appear to, based on the front label.  Much of the Goji, Mangosteen, Acai, Noni, Pomegranate, Maqui, Sea Buckthorn Oil,, Tamanu Oil, and Oregano Oil for sale are so much less than the pure product you should expect.  Many are significantly diluted versions of their former selves, containing only trace amounts of the ingredients listed on the label. Plus, a whole lot of other ingredients you don’t want.

It’s not just off-brands marketed on the web – it’s big name brands and retailers that are providing misleading information regularly.  We are not big fans of the Walmart’s, Monsanto’s and GNC’s of the world.  We like and do support small business that are the backbone of this nation.

This is why buying organic products is really worth the effort and the cost.  In order to be organic they have to be independently inspected, and additive free!  Its a way of really ensuring you are getting what you intend to get!

So read the label, buy organic when you can, buy natural when you can and live healthy!

Thanks,

CAOH

Cold Pressed/Unrefined/Virgin

California Academy of Health's search for the most potent natural products has led us to the tropical island archipelago of Vanuatu where tamanu, an oil rich in antioxidants, is produced.

Tamanu, as it is known by native Tahitians, is a “sacred oil”  used for centuries to naturally treat skin irritations and promote wound healing and regeneration of new skin.  Tamanu oil also possesses natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and has demonstrated efficacy against various human and animal pathogens.

As early as 1918, French researchers investigated the unique topical benefits of tamanu oil.  Traditionally, the oil has been used by Pacific islanders on cuts, sores, burns, blemishes, rashes, bites and stings. Tamanu oil contains three basic classes of lipids: neutral lipids, glycolipids, and phospholipids.  Tamanu oil also contains a unique fatty acid called calophyllic acid, and a novel immune supportive and anti-inflammatory agent called calophyllolide which promotes the formation of new, healthy skin.  Tamanu is not only topically immune supportive, it is anti-inflammatory on the skin as well.  Modern applications of tamanu oil are in the forms of advanced skin care products, anti-wrinkle creams, and lotions.
