Tiny Happy Civilizations
Have you ever read "Horton Hears a Who" by Dr. Seuss? Horton is an elephant that can hear the conversations of a civilization on a tiny speck of dust. We can look in a mirror and see a reflection of ourselves but we don't see everything that's going on. We can take a picture of a beautiful landscape, but we only see the surface level. Each one of us is a walking, talking, breathing ecosystem. It's not often we think about ourselves in that manner, but it's true. Inside our bodies are trillions of cells. There are around 200 different types of cells, each one with it's own function and format. The gut microbiome is itself a world of living organisms likely with more bacterial cells than human cells. From the moment we're born, our gut microbiome begins to grow and take shape. There are numerous variables that can affect this world - environmental factors, age, nutrition, stress, medications, etc. The science of the human microbiome is growing exponentially with new discoveries taking place regularly. These tiny living organisms help us maintain balance, assisting in metabolism, digestion, and immune function. When the balance is thrown off, we can get sick or become at risk for disease.
Likewise, soil contains a vast array of life. A handful of dirt can contain billions of living organisms including bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, etc. Unfortunately, soil depletion is a real thing that reduces nutritional content. Our farmers invest a lot of resources into building soil health. Why? Because a rich, diverse soil microbiome is essential to producing healthy food for our animals. When our animals eat healthy, we eat healthy. Not only that, but the planet benefits from healthy soils. Green plants, soils, and grazing animals work in concert to capture atmospheric carbon in a healthy and very natural cycle. Can you see how we are influenced by some very tiny critters we can't even see without a microscope? These living organisms may not be talking to us like they did with Horton, but they are most certainly an active part of our environment, whether we can see them or not.

Product Feature | Five Nutrients In Meat To Slash Risk For Osteoporosis
"Several years ago, a well-known medical doctor – and an outspoken proponent of a vegan diet – suffered a fall in his bathroom. Sadly, the accident left this man with a fractured pelvis, a broken femur and other injuries. An unfortunate incident like this would normally spark nothing but sympathy. But in this case, it actually stirred a heated debate. That’s because this doctor had used his considerable platform for many years to preach that the best bone-building diet is one based on starchy carbohydrates and complete avoidance of animal foods." Kelley Herring's 2-Part Series about nutrition and osteoporosis is well worth the read.
