At the recent Oxford Real Farming Conference dairy farmer Christine Page from Smiling Tree Farm, gave a great presentation as part of the The Rise of Milk Substitutes: how can dairy producers respond? session.
Beneficial microbes improve health in many terrains. Colonisation resistance is a completely different way of thinking. When the information is applied, it is both pioneering and revolutionary.
Peg is a senior medical microbiologist and risk analyst who takes an interest in the raw milk movement. She has started her own blog with interesting information that will appeal to a varied audience, not just scientists.
Prohibition-based policies around raw milk - which focus solely on minimising risk - are missing the critical point of raw milk's unique health benefits, at a time when they are desperately needed. We are “bacteriosapiens”. It is our nature.
Both animals and people need a good diet to build strong resistance to disease and bacterial infections. For ruminants it is a nutrient-dense forage, and for humans it is a diet containing diverse living foods.
Mark explained how mankind has been busy destroying our earth’s macro-biome, and how it is now affecting our inner biome. For mankind to thrive, we need bacteria.
Soil scientist show that grassland really need the right kind of aerobic soil microbes, agrochemical-free farming, rotational grazing and high diversity of plant species, to create soil fertility and remineralised forage.
Research has found a probiotic bacteria that can destroy this superbug. Researchers discovered that a probiotic bacteria called Bacillus can fight and effectively eliminate Staphylococcus aureus.
Churchtown Dairy, a Hudson, upstate NY biodynamic farm became the 17th to be listed with the Raw Milk Institute last month.
The Global Soil Health Challenge call on governments to put systems in place to put atmospheric carbon back into the soil, however Australian politicians do not seem interested.
80% of immunity lies in the gut. Many consumers have ideas about probiotics that are simply not stacking up to science. Biology should not be ignored when it comes to modern diseases.
Australians are coming to the realisation that our health is in crisis, because agriculture is in crisis. Food is medicine.
This article questions if the coroner's inquest will be able to deliver real solutions. Australians can get caught up in details, miss a few truths, and then over-regulate to create safety.
This article was written to help vegans and other food consumers better define why they are angry about farming involving animals and why they want change.
Australians are among the sickest in the world and a healthy ratio of fatty acids has proven before that it can help with better health, however finding these foods in Australia is challenging and very expensive.
Catalyst has created two episodes exploring what happens to your health when you transform the bacteria living in your gut. Also more on the latest research from universities from around the world.
Dr. Maya spent a lot of time delving into the scientific literature and found that being exposed to diverse microbes is what makes our guts, immune systems and our brains healthy.
The British Columbia Herdshare Association is a non-profit society serving the herdshare community of British Colombia through providing support, education, and advocacy. They are doing some very inspirational work.
Milk builds strong bones, but raw dairy may also prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). This 100% consumer funded study by Johns Hopkins University wants to look at raw cheese and its effect on osteoporosis.
Farming has been gravitating in different directions but the differences have never been so stark. Three systems farm for microbes but because of different inputs, values and expectations there are different outcomes.
