“Milk that’s not pasteurized is a health hazard. Really? Let’s look at how this myth was spun and how it got poured down the throats of the public” – William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
If raw milk is so bad for us, how did the human race ever survive before pasteurisation? After all, we’ve been milking cows and drinking the milk for thousands of years. Why is milk now pasteurised, homogenised…
“Corruption has become so endemic and intellectual integrity so compromised in pharmaceutical research that drug companies and their collaborators in government (and universities) can now get away with openfraud”. William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.

The majority of farmers are against the introduction of genetically modified (GM) technology in WA so why was the ban to grow GM canola lifted?
The Copeland family have been farming at Mukinbudin for nearly a century and said they were disappointed by the decision. “Throughout WA, 27,000 people signed a petition to keep WA GM-free…
Farmers ought to be regarded as the most important people in our society as they are the food providers!
Yet it is alarming that an ex-politician, who has been reported to have intimate working knowledge of government human health issues, policies and procedures has very quickly joined a pharmaceutical giant as their political lobbyist.
Tailored Script Writing for the Journalist
Ploys big commercial interests use to convince farmers that they are on the right track when using their ‘quick fix’ farm remedy products. One is to hijack Institutes by heavily influencing them with sponsorship – trial money
Authority Figures and Plausible Explanations Cannot Always be Trusted
More and more farmers are increasingly becoming uneasy as they see their position being continually eroded rather than supported. Let’s look at what lengths the powers to be go to give farmers a one-way track of farming…
Can Organic Farming Feed the World? Part 4
High input farming methods that produce low-cost food are fast becoming obsolete. The synthetic chemical fertilizers that produce quantity instead of quality are becoming more expensive and, in the case of phosphorus, are running out.
Can Organic Farming Feed the World? Part 3
Our current world food production is more than sufficient to provide an adequate diet to all humans, yet more than 840 million people are suffering from hunger. Hunger is a problem of poverty, distribution, and access to food.
Can Organic Farming Feed the World? Part 2

Can Organic Farming Feed the World?
With the world population passing the 6 billion mark last October, the debate over our ability to sustain a fast growing population is heating up. Biotechnology advocates in particular are becoming very vocal in their claim…
Are you generally easily influenced by the “opinions” of others. Do you let the newspapers, farm journals and the “gossiping” neighbours do your “thinking” for you?
Opinions are the cheapest commodities on earth. Everyone has a load of opinions ready to be wished upon anyone who will accept them. If you are influenced by “opinions” when you reach DECISIONS, you will not succeed in any undertaking…
How valued in Western society is the farmer today?

So What has Happened to Agriculture Over the Last Hundred Years?
Basically rural populations in industrial countries have diminished while the cities have flourished which in essence means that more and more people rely on farmers to feed them. Shouldn’t this mean then that farmers are able to charge more…
Agriculture has played a key role in the development of human civilisation and until the Industrial Revolution the vast majority of the human population was involved in agriculture.
Over thousands of years, agricultural techniques have steadily increased agricultural productivity during a time which we now call the Agrarian Revolution. Throughout this expansion of agriculture new technologies and new crops…
Social proof is massive when forming our opinions. Many farmers belong to small communities where we learn from others and the need to belong and fit in is very important.
Unfortunately it can also be very limiting. Most of us have all heard of the “100th monkey” story. If not here it is. Over 50 years ago on an island off Japan, scientists had been observing the Japanese monkey in the wild for a period of over 30 years.
Shared – dare I call it – WISDOM
Ask of all theory & practice – what is it in the service of? – before supporting or copying it. Work mostly with ‘small meaningful achievable initiatives’ vs. ‘Olympic-scale projects’ (most of these are abandoned or fail, & have numerous negative side-effects)
Bread From Stones
Since Julius Hensel’s “Bread From Stones” thousands of books and research papers have been written yet the effect on agriculture has not been as high as it ought to be. Why?
In 1893 “Bread from Stones” was written by Julius Hensel and is recognised as the first book to raise the awareness to farmers of their options available to them.

In 1975 it was revealed that plants and insects “talk” to each other
When you know and accept this, you can learn how to control insects without the use of toxic sprays. A worldwide revolution in agriculture occurred in 1975 when Dr Phil Callahan published his book “Tuning into Nature”
The Cause Of Yellowing Plants Is Not Always A Lack Of Nitrogen
Then why do plants yellow? Plants yellow from a number of reasons. It is poorly understood that yellowing is most likely caused by a number of nutrient deficiencies. In fact one or more of 8 missing nutrients can cause plant yellowing.
To Spray or Not To Spray”? Or “Who To Trust When It Comes To Rust?
Are you farming solely to produce food and make a profit somehow or are you farming to produce food and make a profit and to create and be part of a healthy, sustainable future? Once again this time of the year rural publications…
