6 Reasons Why Eggs Are The Healthiest Food on The Planet, by By Kris
Gunnars, BSc Eggs are so nutritious that they're often referred to as "nature's multivitamin."One
large egg contains (1): Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin): 9% of the RDA.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): 15% of the RDA.
Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): 7% of the RDA.
Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
Eggs also contain small amounts
of almost every vitamin and mineral required by the human body... including calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, Vitamin
E, Folate and many more. They also have unique antioxidants and powerful brain nutrients that many people are deficient
in. Here are 6 reasons why eggs are among the healthiest foods on the planet.
Permaculture intro: WHAT IS PERMACULTUREPermaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment
through mutually beneficial synergies - imitating the no waste, closed loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. Permaculture
studies and applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts at any scale. It is a multidisciplinary
toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting and hydrology, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal
systems, aquaculture, appropriate technology, economics and community development....Read more click here
Farms, a 5-acre commercial permaculture orchard in Southern Quebec, Canada
ago, Stefan Sobkowiak bought a commercial apple orchard with the intention of converting it to an organic orchard. He did
just that, but eventually understood the limitations of the organic model originating from monoculture. He then decided to
tear out most of the trees and replant in a way that would maximize biodiversity and yield while minimizing the amount of
maintenance required. Inspired by permaculture principles, the orchard now counts over 100 cultivars of apples, plus several
types of plums, pears, cherries, and countless other fruits and vegetables.
Society meets the needs of humans and all life systems through the practices and principles found in Permaculture Low Impact
Sustainable Development.EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The United Nations issued a report that stated "Only Small Farmers
Can Feed the World" Governments must shift subsidies and research funding from agro-industrial monoculture to small farmers
using ‘agroecology [permaculture]' methods. According to the UN's Special Report on the Right to Food modern industrial
agricultural methods can no longer feed the world, due to the impacts of overlapping environmental and ecological crises linked
to land, water and resource availability. A UN official said that new scientific research increasingly shows how ‘agroecology'
offers far more environmentally sustainable methods that can still meet the rapidly growing demand for food.
Agriculture needs a new
direction: Permaculture .....Read more click here.
