What does “organic” labeling really mean? If I ask five Yoga Talk Show listeners, I’ll get five different answers. And new growing methods stack complexity on complexity with hydroponics and aquaponics now falling under “organic” certification as well. On this week’s show, we’ll unpack certification, and more interesting still, we’ll look at various growing techniques in detail and speculate on the future of food.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why the term “organic” is owned and controlled by USDA
  • Why organic food can have non-organic certified fertilizer
  • How universal organic regulations really only began in 2002
  • Why chemical farming kills the bacteria in the soil (hence 3 year waiting period for conversion to organic)
  • Why aquaponics is not new and has been around forever in various forms
  • How aquapoanics uses 80% less water than conventional farming
  • How aquaponics produces both fish and short grow cycle edible vegetables

ABOUT OUR GUEST

Ro is the cofounder and co-owner of A Bee, a certification agency responsible for ensuring that USDA organic products meet the NOP organic standard. Ro has an interest in all things sustainable and serves as the director of the open-use nonprofit “I’m In Community”.

  • Liquid Energy-B — If you’re a vegetarian, live a high-stress lifestyle or are over 50 years of age, there’s a very good chance you need to supplement with vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is one of the few vitamins that our body doesn’t produce on its own.

    If you don’t eat or supplement with B12, you will develop a deficiency that could lead to anemia, nerve damage, mood and mental health problems. The good news is that B12 supplementation is extremely safe, inexpensive, and is now available in the most bio-available and absorbable form, methylcobalamin.

In 1990, the Human Genome Project began, and by 2003, roughly 20,000 human genes had been sequenced. This is exciting, but it’s also just the first step. How can we use this data to understand human health, longevity and wellness? What can our genetics tell us about our proclivity for certain activities and our susceptibility for certain illnesses? On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll meet Naturopath, Bob Miller, who will help you decode the code that is your genetic heritage.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why genetic testing is the future of medicine
  • How you’re making and using antioxidants
  • Genetics: code for enzymes which are the worker bees of the body
  • How to get started with testing your DNA
