View Full Version : Eating Locally Grown

National Public Radio is going to have an article on this tomorrow on Science Friday. Hope I get to hear it and hope I am not disappointed. I have been wondering about this lately in terms of natural healing and what the ancient people did. The UTI thread recommending cranberries caused me to think that it isn't cranberry season and they don't grow in my area at all anyway - so what did people in my area use for UTI? Years ago I was told to eat locally grown to heal from allergies - never worked for me because - as I have recently learned - my allergies are mostly from SAD wheat and dairy! So even though I am a transplant to the area that I live in - my body has adapted to it somewhat I'm sure - so I would think that the Creator put healing plants for all conditions in every area of the Earth......so maybe there is a locally growing healing plant for the Valley Fever which is a local illness? Anyway - I wish there were an on-line encyclopedia for this information and since NPR's article is being featured on their Science Friday program I don't think that they can concentrate on the economics of it.

This should help you find the time in your area.....but these articles that they advertise (like this one) can be short sometimes and I don't know if they actually say what time on Science Friday they are going to have it. (Well I am not good at looking stuff up - I can't even find Science Friday on their site.) gotta go find me some cranberries

Nice article for the new and uninformed. It was mostly about the economics of it - the cost to the environment of shipping foods....but nothing about the cost to the environment due to sacrificing bio-diversity. They did mention that the way we currently grow our crops in concentrated areas does put us at risk as a nation for bio-terrorism. So if an unnatural act or poor economy forces us to eat local - how is someone in Alaska to stay raw year 'round? I am sure that there are visitors to this board who could have done this article and maybe even better. Rating - bleh.
