Big Surprise: Ames Test Shows More Carcinogens in Organic Food?

We switched to mostly organic foods a while back. However I found myself puzzled when I learned about the Ames Test, which shows that natural food may have more carcinogens.

What should I do after learning about all the conflicting views? For my organic garden, should I go to the nursery to ask for the varieties with less bug resistance? Or should I go to the organic store and ask for buggy vegetables or pest infested fruits?

Obviously we should ask the government to work on the food labeling. The producers should disclose the amount of carcinogens in their products. If you may not live that long, you should watch my next video titled: “DIY: the cheapest relative carcinogens test”. In the mean time you may use the dirty dozen and clean 15 list to reduce your pesticides intake. Live long and prosper.

Dining Etiquette East vs West (Visitors & New Immigrants Must See)

Dining Etiquette East vs West
When I first came to America, I wish I had watched a video like this. A few times I felt embarrassed not because of my own culture but because I did not have the chance to learn some things ahead of time and sometimes I failed to notice the cultural differences.
Living in a country where you did not grow up is very tough especially if you fail to observe culture norms. This video is not intended to look down on anyone’s heritage, and I hope you watch it lightheartedly. Please share it with people who you think may have issues similar to mine! It is a must for visitors & new Immigrants. Remember first impressions are very important and small things also matter.
Thank you.
