Great news for all those that suffer with allergy symptoms and asthma. If you've ever wondered why foods like blueberries, kale and broccoli are considered super foods.

There is a particular potent, health supporting compound common that's common to all of them: quercetin - which can help you to feel better! Quercetin is found in numerous leafy, deeply colored vegetables and other healthy foods.

TUD Addressing Possible Twain Harte Disc Golf Course

In a special meeting on November 1 the Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD) board will discuss the former Sierra Pines Golf Course Site in Twain Harte. The site is not currently organized for any use.

The Sonora 49er Rotary Club has partnered with Discs-n-Motion, an unincorporated club, and proposed to temporary use the site as a passive disc golf course. Both clubs state they will come together in planning and installing an 18-hole course and named Sierra Pines Disc Golf. Properties within 500 feet of the site have been sent an invitation to the Special Board Meeting. The public meeting will take place on November 1, 2016 at 6:30 PM at the Twain Harte Community Center.

Using plants to clean contaminated soil

In the last couple of centuries humans have done a strange thing: we've dug the biggest pits, the deepest holes, and the longest tunnels the world has ever seen, all to find the most insidious and subtle poisons known to our mammalian bodies.

What we need is a device that can suck toxins out of the soil and either turn them into something harmless, or concentrate them in something lightweight and removable. No one has much money lying around to invent such a device, though, much less to manufacture millions of them and send them to sites around the world for free. Thus, these hypothetical devices would be even better if they already appeared around the world. It would be best, in fact, if these machines cost nothing to create, and once created could make more of themselves, at an exponential rate. While we're at it, it would also be nice if the devices also prevented soil erosion, fed bees and other pollinators, and provided shade, beauty, a home for wildlife, and possibly firewood.

Composting Tips and Tricks

We've put together 50 of our favorite backyard composting tips to help you make amazing homegrown compost. Enjoy!

The microbes responsible for breaking down your compost pile need a balanced diet of nitrogen and carbon. Nitrogen comes from green materials such as food scraps, manure and grass clippings. Carbon comes from brown materials such as dead leaves, hay, wood chips and shredded newspaper. A ratio that contains equal portions by weight (not volume) of both works best.

Chemtrails Of the Ocean: Government Launches New Toxic AquaTrails

Despite the fact that our oceans cover over 70% of our planet, nuclear meltdowns and toxic oil spillages like Fukushima would seem to occur more often than can be explained away by malpractice.

An award-winning online community named THE WELL reported in the 1990's that odd emissions had been spotted floating behind large vessels, which did not dissipate normally according to Kelvin wake patterns. Oceanographers at the Wyoming Institute of Technology have coined these dispersals "Aquatrails". Other Scientists were quick to dismiss the reports citing the usual 'conspiratorial' cry similar to chemtrails.

Autism Rates in California Schools Jumped As Much as 17% Among Kindergartners Since Mandatory Vaccine Bill Was Signed

Autism rates in the US have been rising since the 1980s. In 1985 autism prevalence was 1 in 2,500, ten years later it jumped to 1 in 500, and today it is an astonishing 1 in 68 children.

More and more researchers and doctors are raising red flags as they see more evidence that this epidemic is related not only to environmental, food, and water toxins, but specifically to those in vaccinations. In 1995 , the immunization schedule for children had 19 vaccinations before the age of 16. In 2001 , that number is now 28 before the age of 18.

8 ways to enjoy organic food on a budget

Organic food is often cited as being better for your health and for the environment. However, many people are put off by organic food's perceived higher price tag.

This month The Soil Association is raising awareness of organic food and wants you to Organic Your September. However, if you think organic food is too costly, switching wholly or partly to organic needn't be as expensive as you probably think.

Amateur prospector finds large gold nugget near Sonora

A Modesto man struck it rich while panning for treasure when he came upon a nearly 18-ounce gold nugget in a creek to the west of Sonora.

"A thick T-bone steak: 5 inches long, 1 1/2 inch thick by 4 inches wide," said Bryant Shock, co-owner of Gold Prospecting Adventure in Jamestown, describing the large nugget found last week by the amateur gold prospector at Woods Creek in Jamestown.

10 Foods to Naturally Protect Yourself From Fukushima Radiation

Over 300 tons of radioactive water are still leaking into the sea each day. And if that wasn't enough, reactor 4 is severely damaged and sinking-the removal of the spent fuel rods will be one of the most urgent and dangerous tasks ever undertaken.

Many experts are urging people to stop eating sea life from the Pacific. This would obviously include anything from Japan. Marine chemist Ken Buesseler found Pacific cesium levels 50 million times higher than pre disaster levels. (The levels tapered off but plateaued at 10,000 times higher than normal.) The algae get contaminated and it goes to the little fish, to the big fish and then to you.
