NaturalNews Tip of the day (from Mike):   

Looking for truly organic body care products? Check for the presence of the USDS Organic seal on the product. That seal actually means what it says. It's one of the best programs ever created by the USDA.

"Organic cheater" body care brands were publicly shamed at a recent non-violent street protest by the Organic Consumers Association. Do you know which "organic" brands aren't really organic?
