Urban Farmer, Will Allen Grows One Million Pounds of Food in the Dead of Winter


On just 3 acres they are producing 1,000,000 pounds of food each year! How are they doing this? -10,000 fish -300-500 yards worm compost -3 acres of land in green houses -Growing all year using heat from compost piles -Using vertical space A packed greenhouse produces a crop value of $5 Square Foot!

New Study: Alzheimer’s & Aluminum Link Can No Longer Be Ignored


by DR. MERCOLA Aluminum has been long known to be neurotoxic, with mounting evidence that chronic exposure is a factor in many neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson’s disease. However, definitive scientific proof is difficult to establish due to the the lack of longitudinal studies, as well as pushback from industries that use aluminum in their products. Despite the shortage of conclusive studies, mounting scientific evidence leaves little room for doubt. Case in point: a new case study from Keele University in the UK unequivocally shows high levels of aluminum in the brain of an individual exposed to…

COPD is a progressively worsening debilitating lung disease that adversely affects breathing by obstructing airflow and causing lung tissue damage. COPD is…


What This City Did With An Abandoned Walmart Is Absolutely Brilliant. You’ll Love It


You’ll find a Walmart store in most American towns and cities. These stores are almost always giant, taking up an average 2.5 football fields worth of space. So what happens when one of them closes? It’s an awful lot of space to just let sit there. Officials in McAllen, Texas, were faced with this problem when their local Walmart shut down. Instead of letting the giant store sit vacant, they did something amazing. They transformed it into the largest single-floor public library in America. Now this is the library of my dreams. And it get’s even better… Weburbanist…
