Lightbulb For finding that organic and naturally grown produce and meat

If you are concerned about genetically modified food and produce and are looking for organic and naturally grown produce and meat, here is a good website I stumbled upon by chance.

Re: For finding that organic and naturally grown produce and meat

Good find, EC. A lot of people are worried about genetically modified foods. It is much worse in case of vegetables. You visit the sabzi mandis, all the vegetables look soooooo beautiful, but don't taste the same as you remember from your childhood. Tomatoes, potatoes, onions from cold storages (they sprinkle some chemical on onions as preservative), dhoodhi, turai (gilki), fruits ... you name it, everything has some chemical or the other added to it. Almost all the fruits are matured by giving some kind of injection. I once saw a tv program, some sting operation, where they showed a dried doodhi (lauki), then a person (face hidden) giving some injection to it, and showed the same dried lauki swelling up and looking green as if fresh from the farm!!. 3-4 days ago there was a program showing mangoes matured this way fruits ka raja, summer season, and I am wary of eating mangoes.

Re: For finding that organic and naturally grown produce and meat

Kaa baat karat rahi RR Bhai

Do you really believe these news channels and their sting operations ?

Why did they allow the lauki to dry in the first place and how do you know that it was the same lauki after the injection ?Its editing boss and all the modern softwares where you see things which are not possible to be filmed.And why would the person/group doing all this allow any news channel to film it even if its wearing a mask

Advertising their products ?

Why would anyone need any type of injection or chemical to ripen the mangoes when the heat today is all time high ?

Kabhi dudh, kabhi andda, kabhi sabji...thode dino mei bharosa nahi yeh news channel insaan ko nakli saabit kar denge
Jo mil raha hai kha le bhai yeh news channel ke chakkar mei bhukha reh jayega.

Re: For finding that organic and naturally grown produce and meat

If you visit the vegetable market, you will find, in some corner, a vendor or two selling "desi" vegetables - desi tomato, desi potato etc.. These are the vegetables that are grown without any fertilizers except Gobar (so they say) and may be costlier than the other vegetables. Try these, and you will find them tastier too.

Right, everything is nakli these days, even medicines, otherwise we would have tried to live only on medicines.

Even a lot of Swamis are nakli these days.

Re: For finding that organic and naturally grown produce and meat

Which market,I mean in which city

But do you think today Gobar is also natural ? The cattles today are fed food full of chemical,so indirectly those are also modern chemical laden foods

Asli kya hai Nakli kya hai pucho dil se apne
