Welcome back to the Talk Story portion of our visit with André Leu, right here in Hawaii, speaking about Poisoning Our Children. If you haven't yet listened to André's main presentation, you can catch that right here. Most of the last half of this session had to be removed due to inaccuracies, erroneous claims and intentionally damaging statements made by a few attendees in an attempt to discredit our local producers and deflect from the subject at hand. Sadly, such trolling by people with no concern for or experience with human health has become commonplace at such events. This segment had to be removed so as not to spread false information about our producers.

Andre Leu is the Author of Poisoning our Children and the Myths of Safe Pesticides. He is International Director of Regeneration International, an organization that promotes food, farming and land use systems that regenerate and stabilise climate systems, the health of the planet and people, communities, culture and local economies, democracy and peace.

He was the President of IFOAM – Organics International, the world change agent and umbrella body for the organic sector. IFOAM – Organics International has around 850 member organisations in 127 countries.

Defining Organic; All About Animal Welfare, Regenerative Agriculture, and Rural Economics; Guest Heretic Will Harris of White Oak Pastures

Will Harris Farm Animal Welfare on the Nutrition Heretic Podcast When Will Harris’s dad started using ammonium nitrate fertilizer on his farm in 1946, he had no idea he was destroying the microscopic flora and fauna on the land that are necessary for maintaining healthy top soil. So after 50 years, he moved to a farming system that is not only organic, but regenerates the soil by emulating nature’s own processes while concentrating on animal welfare and restoring rural economics.

Harris's White Oak Pastures farm pasture raises and hand butchers 5 red meat animal species and 5 poultry species. Using techniques learned from the Savory Network, Harris uses these animals to restore balance to the soil. As a result, his farm is able to withstand drought and heavy rains equally well with no loss in crop production. In today’s episode of the Nutrition Heretic Podcast, we learn about the inaccuracies of labels such as organic and grass-fed as well as how Harris's smart farming methods are helping to restore his 150 year old family farm into a thriving farm for the future.
