Eating pork produces scrofula, leprosy, & cancer. CD 393. Do you know what scrofula is? It is sometimes referred to as “The King’s Disease or the King’s Evil”. Scrofula is a form of tuberculosis affecting the lymphnodes, especially of the neck. In old times Kings would get this disease in the lymph nodes because they were eating lots of pork! You know the picture–a whole pig with an apple in his mouth. Did God ever give humans permission to eat pigs?

In Genesis we are told that God made man in His own image and likeness (Gen. 1:26) and immediately gave man the following dietary guidelines: “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat [or food].” (Gen. 1:29).
Man’s first diet did not include any animal products or dairy products, but only plant foods like fruits, seeds, nuts, and grains from the garden. After man sinned, he was driven out of the Garden of Eden and the herb of the field (vegetables containing  chlorophyll minerals, antioxidants, & phytochemicals) were added to his diet (see Gen.3:18).

In Genesis 9:2, 3, since “every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground” because of the great flood (see Gen 7:23), God made a provision and gave man permission to eat “every moving thing that liveth … even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.” (Gen. 9:3). God, as noted by the language, added flesh to man’s diet after the flood, just as He added vegetables after the fall. However, the provision gave man only permission to eat “clean” animals, and never their fat or blood. Leviticus 11 lists the specific “clean” animals God allowed for food and the “unclean” animals he forbade man to eat, most of which are scavengers.

In Leviticus 11:2 God told Moses to “speak unto the children of Israel, saying, these are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. … And the swine, … he is unclean unto you.” Here the Lord prohibited man to eat swine’s flesh–things like pork chops, ham, bacon, pepperoni, salami, and Jimmie Dean Pure Pork Sausage, fish that did not have fins and scales like craps, lobsters, shrimp, and oysters, and a number of other creatures such as birds of prey, etc. Why did God forbid His people to eat these “unclean” animals?

Pigs Are Unsanitary For Consumption

I believe the main reason was for sanitary or hygienic reasons. These creatures are scavengers and feed on the waste and filth of the earth, whether in the waters or on the land. Take the pig, a vacuum cleaner of the earth, for instance. The animal is truly a scavenger and it will eat just about anything–from garbage to dead rattlesnakes; from mud to feces. I have read that the pig doesn’t sweat and tends to be frequently infested with the trichina worm. The trichina worm has the ability, science has discovered, to cross the blood-brain barrier. If it does and gets into your brain, the symptoms can be similar to that of a brain tumor. Misdiagnoses of a brain tumor rather than a trichina parasite have been reported. One of my own employees was having headaches and had a brain scan taken at U.C. Davis Medical Center. The scan which was done to rule out a tumor actually revealed two worms in her brain. Yuck! Now think for a minute–have you ever been told to cook pork well? For what reason?  The answer is to kill the trichina worms. Well, who wants to eat dead ones?

Full Of Parasites

Years ago in an issue of Health and Life, there appeared an article by T. C. Desmond–chairman of the Trichinosis Commission of New York. The article was entitled, “One in Six is Infected with Deadly Pork Parasite.” In the article Desmond stated, “One out of twenty-five pork products purchased over the retail counter was found by the commission to contain parasites. It has been estimated that our present hog crop may provide us with 60,000,000 trichinae-infested meals. Another article stated: “The worms enter the human digestive tract as tiny, almost invisible cysts which digest and release the worms, so that they burrow through the walls of the stomach or duodenum to the bloodstream. The symptom is similar to food poisoning if the number of parasites is sufficient. Later may come rheumatic-like heart pain because of worms settling temporarily in the heart. Inflammation in the cardiac region may follow. In some cases the brain or nervous system may be disturbed. as though worms had invaded the brain or nerves, which possibly they do. Even invasions of the muscles may be fatal if the worms are numerous enough.” Illinois Health Messenger.

Dangerous For Health

A friend of mine who worked at a meat packing plant once told me that he would get infections in his finger followed by a red line was running up his arm just from handling bacon and ham. He also said, “On one occasion, hams were turning green and I was ordered to smoke them and package them for sale back East.” He continued, “Another time the bacon was outdated and I was told to repackage the bacon and stamp a new date on the package and resell it.” How gross and deceptive! Is it any wonder why the Lord said, “And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud, he is unclean to you.  Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.” (Lev. 11:7,8).
If you carefully examine the front foot of the pig, you will find a small abrasion. If you then press the pig’s leg just above the abrasion, you will squeeze out a teaspoon of filthy matter. Some have called it “pork gravy.” It is actually an outlet or drain for the dirty filth of which the pig’s lymph system is filled. That opening is the outlet of a sewer. If you then carefully examine this filthy scrofulous serum, you will find that it contains many diseases, bacteria and viruses. What must be the condition of the body of an animal so foul as to require a regular system of drainage to convey away its teeming filth? John Harvey Kellogg said: “Sometimes the outlet gets closed by the accumulation of external filth. Then the ichorous stream ceases to flow, and the animal quickly sickens and dies unless the owner cleanses the parts, and so opens anew the feculent fountain, and allows the festering poison to escape.”  Pickled pig’s feet anyone?

God Warned Not To Eat The Pig
God commanded us not to eat, or even touch, the dead animal, because pigs are high in fat, cholesterol, deadly diseases, and trichina worms! John Harvey Kellogg gives another warning about eating lard: “Just under the foul and putrid skin we find a mass of fat from two to six inches in thickness, covering a large portion of the body. Now what is this? Lard, says one; animal oil; an excellent thing for consumptives; a very necessary kind of food in cold weather. Lard, animal oil, very truly; and, we will add a synonym for disease, scrofula, torpid liver. Where did all that fat come from, or how happened it to be so heaped up around that poor hog? Surely it is not natural; for fat is only deposited in large quantities for the purpose of keeping the body warm in winter. This fat is much more than is necessary for such a purpose, and is much greater in amount than ever exists upon the animal in a state of nature. It is evidently the result of disease. So gross have been the habits of the animal, so great has been the foulness of its body, that its excretory organs–its liver, lungs, kidneys, skin, and intestines–have been entirely unable to carry away the impurities which the animal has been all its life accumulating.” The pig is one big fat animal.

Why Are The Warnings Ignored?

Yet, even with all the bad publicity about pork and the health dangers of eating the pig, the devil smiles as Americans feast on their dead bodies from head to toe. The pigs head is turned into head cheese (ears and tails inserted), his stomach is transformed into tripe, his intestines are used for sausage covers, his heart, liver, and kidneys are eaten, and his feet are pickled. Even his bristles are used in brushes and his skin for wallets and purses. In the end, men and women “squeal and grunt” from the pain caused from their perverted appetites and for eating what God said not to!

In the January 22, 1996 issue of U.S. News and World Report, the popular news weekly had an interesting article entitled, “Hog heaven and hell–Pig farming has gone high tech.” The article said, “Last June 21, after heavy rains some 25 million gallons of feces and urine flushed from the buildings where pigs were confined…The reddish-brown tide, more than twice the volume of oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez, poured knee-deep for two hours across the highway between Whaley’s re-brick bungalow and the First Church of God….The stinking slumgaullion drained into the New River where it killed virtually all aquatic life in the 17-mile stretch between Richlands and Jacksonville and left a stench for several days. … Wastes from big pig farms also threaten well water and surface water with parasites, bacteria, and viruses. These include salmonella, streptococcus, giardia, listeria, along with avian botulism and cholera.” Would you like ham, bacon, or sausage with your eggs? This is the same reason fish were dying in Lake Erie years ago which authorities called “Fishteria.” In fact, it so happened that I was seated next to a Federal Inspector who just got back from inspecting the lake and shared his findings with me.
God made scavengers of the sea just as He made pigs and birds of prey to be the scavengers of the land. I remember at one of our cooking schools while I was addressing the subject of unclean meats, a man seated in the back row started waving his hand. After calling on him, he anxiously shared the following story. He told us how he used to catch crabs for a living and that his greatest catch was early in the morning right in the docks where the boats were kept. He soon realized the reason for the quantity of crabs in this location was because the boats were dumping their toilets filled with human waste into the water and the crabs were enjoying the feast!

Biblical Health Principles Very Accurate

No wonder the Lord refers to fish without fins and scales as “abominations“. I refer to crabs, shrimp, and lobsters as the cockroaches of the sea and shrimp as little garbage-gulpers that swim approximately six inches from the surface of the ocean to feed on the scum and waste that floats to the top. Certain shellfish, if caught and eaten during the months that end in “R” (September, October, etc.), can kill you. I can safely say the 21-Shrimp Special at Red Lobster for $7.99 is NO BARGAIN, and shrimpyou can be certain I avoid Long John Silvers like the plague. Some people say they actually serve fish with their grease. One writer referred to shellfish as insects of the ocean. “After all, he said, “They have way too many legs.”
Then there are the other little creatures that God has told us not to eat. As far as snails, I don’t think I really even need to comment. We cringe whenever we crush them under our shoe or see them in the garden, but somehow they become a delicacy when these little snot balls are sautéed in wine and butter. All of these foods are high in fat and cholesterol and can contribute to arteriosclerosis.

The Salvational Perspective

What will the Lord have to say about are food choices when He comes? One vivid answer is at the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ and has been recorded by the prophet Isaiah: “For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and with His sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.  They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:15-17). Strong words! Evidently those slain of the Lord will be the ones hiding in the garden just like Adam and Eve because they had eaten what the Lord said not to! Will we do the same?

It would be so much better to eat the diet of Eden with all the colorful and nutritious fruits and vegetables from the garden rich in phytochemicals that prevent rather than cause disease.

Since the laws of nature are the laws of God, it is plainly our duty to give these laws careful study. We should study their requirements in regard to our own bodies and conform to them. Ignorance in these things is sin. 
 
“Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ?” “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:15, 19, 20. Our bodies are Christ’s purchased property, and we are not at liberty to do with them as we please.
 
Man has done this. He has treated his body as if its laws had no penalty. Through perverted appetite its organs and powers have become enfeebled, diseased, and crippled. And these results which Satan has brought about by his own specious temptations he uses to taunt God with. He presents before God the human body that Christ has purchased as His property, and what an unsightly representation of his Maker man is! Because man has sinned against his body and has corrupted his ways, God is dishonored.
 
When men and women are truly converted, they will conscientiously regard the laws of life that God has established in their being, thus seeking to avoid physical, mental, and moral feebleness. Obedience to these laws must be made a matter of personal duty. We ourselves must suffer the ills of violated law. We must answer to God for our habits and practices. Therefore the question for us is not, “What will the world say?” but, “How shall I, claiming to be a Christian, treat the habitation God has given me? Shall I work for my highest temporal and spiritual good by keeping my body as a temple for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, or shall I sacrifice myself to the world’s ideas and practices?” 
 
Healthful living must be made a family matter. Parents should awake to their God-given responsibilities. Let them study the principles of health reform and teach their children that the path of self-denial is the only path of safety. The mass of the inhabitants of the world by their disregard of physical law are destroying their power of self-control and unfitting themselves to appreciate eternal realities. Willingly ignorant of their own structure, they lead their children in the path of self-indulgence, thus preparing the way for them to suffer the penalty of the transgression of nature’s laws. This is not taking a wise interest in the welfare of their families. {6T 369, 370}

 

Christians And Pork Eating…Should Christians Eat Pork? Part 1

Danny Vierra

Can you imagine eating pigs?  When I was a child, every week I would go with my mother to the butcher shop and drool over all that meat. The owner would routinely give me a raw wiener to keep me happy while my mother ordered her usual order of jack cheese, round steak, a whole salami (I used to like to eat the white skin too), a huge chunk of bologna, blood sausage, pork chops, pork roast, bacon, ham, and more.

I used to eat pounds pork and especially loved my mother’s ham and potato salad. I would fry the salami until it was a crisp black and the kitchen would be filled with smoke. I knew nothing of the word carcinogenic.

Since I was raised Catholic, I was never taught that God had given dietary laws to the Israelites to keep them healthy, and to prevent the diseases that plagued meat eater’s, like the Egyptians. The Bible says: “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. … And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.” Leviticus 11:2, 7, 8.

Some of you might think the Old Testament dietary laws are null and void today, because we are living in the New Testament era. But let me assure you that nothing changed in the anatomy of the pig at the cross, when Jesus died for our sins, that I am aware of. As if a dead pig’s flesh and body parts suddenly became health food. The “other white meat” is as unclean today as it was 2000 years ago. Pork, swine, pig, or hog was never intended to enter the mouths of God’s people or to grace their tables. And please don’t quote 1 Timothy 4:1-4, because swine’s flesh is not sanctified by the word of God. So praying over your pig before eating it will not protect you from the cholesterol, the toxins, and the parasites (trichina worms). You are eating second-hand filth!

Why did God forbid His people from eating the “unclean” animals like swine? I believe the main reason was for sanitary purposes. These creatures are scavengers and feed on the waste and filth of the earth, whether in the waters or on the land. Take the pig for instance. The animal is truly a scavenger and it will eat just about anything-from garbage to rattlesnakes. I have read that the pig doesn’t sweat and tends to be frequently infested with the trichina worm. The trichina worm has the ability, science has discovered, to cross the blood-brain barrier. If it does and gets in your brain, the symptoms can be similar to that of a brain tumor. Misdiagnoses of a brain tumor rather than a trichina parasite have been reported. One of my own employees was having headaches and a brain scan taken at U.C. Davis Medical Center. The scan which was done to rule out a tumor actually revealed two worms in her brain. Yuck! Now think for a minute-have you ever been told to cook pork well? For what reason? The answer is to kill the trichina worms. Well, who wants to eat dead ones?

Years ago in an issue of Health and Life, there appeared an article by T. C. Desmond-chairman of the Trichinosis Commission of New York. The article was entitled, “One in Six is Infected with Deadly Pork Parasite.” In the article Desmond stated, “One out of twenty-five pork products purchased over the retail counter was found by the Pig Commission to contain parasites. It has been estimated that our present hog crop may provide us with 60,000,000 trichinae-infested meals.

Another article stated: “The worms enter the human digestive tract as tiny, almost invisible cysts which digest and release the worms, so that they burrow through the walls of the stomach or duodenum to the bloodstream. The result is symptoms similar to food poisoning if the number of parasites is sufficient. Later may come rheumatic-like heart pain because of worms settling temporarily in the heart. Inflammation in the cardiac region may follow. In some cases the brain or nervous system may be disturbed. as though worms had invaded the brain or nerves, which possibly they do. Even invasions of the muscles may be fatal if the worms are numerous enough.” Illinois Health Messenger.
A friend of mine who worked at a meat packing plant once told me that he would get infections in his finger followed by a red line was running up his arm just from handling bacon and ham. He also said, “On one occasion, hams were turning green and I was ordered to smoke them and package them for sale back East.” He continued, “Another time the bacon was outdated and I was told to repackage the bacon and stamp a new date on the package and resell it.” How gross and deceptive! Is it any wonder why the Lord said, “And the swine, … he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.” (Lev. 11:7,8).

If you carefully examine the front foot of the pig, you will find a small abrasion. If you then press the pig’s leg just above the abrasion, you will squeeze out a teaspoon of filthy matter. Some have called it “pork gravy.” It is actually an outlet or drain for the dirty filth of which the pig’s lymph system is filled. If you then carefully examine this filthy scrofulous serum, you will find that it contains many diseases, bacteria and viruses. Pickled pig’s feet anyone?

God commanded us not to eat, or even touch, the dead animal, because pigs are high in fat, cholesterol, deadly diseases, and trichina worms! Yet me touch the bologna, salami, pepperoni, and sausage every time you eat it. Even with all the bad publicity about pork and the health dangers of eating the pig, the devil smiles as Americans feast on their dead bodies from head to toe. The pigs head is turned into head cheese (ears and tails inserted), his stomach is transformed into tripe, his intestines are used for sausage covers, his heart, liver, and kidneys are eaten, and his feet are pickled. Even his bristles are used in brushes and his skin for wallets and purses. In the end, men and women “squeal and grunt” from the pain caused from their perverted appetites and for eating what God said not to!

No wonder there is an end-time prophecy given by the prophet Isaiah in regards to the coming of the Lord that warns: “For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination [sea creatures that do not have fins and scales like crabs, shrimp, oysters, lobsters and shark--scavengers of the sea], … shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.” Isa. 66:16, 17. I wouldn’t want to be eating a pork hot dog when the Lord comes. In fact, would someone pass me a bottle of Paratox please!

Furthermore, in Good Medicine, Vol. XVII, No. 3, it says: “In late 2007, the verdict came in. The American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund released the most comprehensive review ever compiled on nutrition  and cancer risk. Many foods are linked to cancer, the report confirmed. But it reserved some of its strongest language for them link between processed meats, like hot dogs and bacon, and colorectal cancer. The evidence was deemed ‘convincing,’ and no amount was considered safe. … This included ham, bacon, pastrami, and salami, as well as hot dogs and sausages to which nitrites and nitrates have been added.”

Now we are waiting and watching to see if the swine flu, which has infected more Americans (over 3,000) than Mexicans, will become a pandemic. There is also concern that it may mutate and become more deadly, since, at present, very few have died from H1N1. Now the president says we should not call it Swine Flu, but H1N1. I am sure all the publicity has hurt the pork business and we don’t want to do that, right?

There are many theories circulating on how H1N1 originated. I have commented on a couple, but today I want to propose another highly plausible theory; that people may be getting swine’s flu from eating, touching, or breathing the air from the waste at hog farms. Could the virus be transmittal through the ingestion pathway? The authorities “assure” that it can’t. It reminds me of when mad cow disease was exposed in Britain and the news reported: “You cannot get mad cow from eating cows and burgers; there is nothing to worry about.” Well, that proved to be false, as we all have learned. Bacteria and viruses like listeria, salmonella, campylobacter, and tuberculosis are transmittal diseases. I remember the headlines of the local paper years ago: “Cow AIDS no threat to humans.” Would you eat a hamburger made from the dead parts of a cow that had Aids? Well, who is checking the pigs to see if they have H1N1 before you bite into that disgusting piece of bacon? Remember, Satan wants to ”steal, and to kill, and to destroy” you!” John 10:10.

Years ago I read a prophetic statement written in 1905 that said: “Those who use flesh foods little know what they are eating. Often if they could see the animals when living and know the quality of the meat they eat, they would turn from it with loathing. People are continually eating flesh that is filled with tuberculosis and cancerous germs. Tuberculosis, cancer, and other fatal diseases are thus communicated [transmitted and spread from animal to humans.”  Counsels on Diet and Foods, 388.

Do you remember the Fishteria outbreak that happening years ago when tons of fish were dying in Lake  Erie? That same year, I was flying to a speaking appointment in another state and happened to sit down next to a man who was a federal inspector for the government. He was returning from his investigation of the crisis and shared the story with me. He told me that they traced the problem to the waste run-off from hog farms in the area. The toxic pig waste from the farms was running into Lake Erie and poisoning and killing the fish. If pigs blood is toxic, what about their poop! Yes, it can kill even highly diluted in Lake Erie.

”Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Also known as factory farms, these industrial facilities cause substantial health problems, as well as environmental and economic harm to communities nationwide. The characteristics of a CAFO vary by what animal is being raised and region of the country.  But the defining characteristic of such farms is that hundreds to thousands of animals (mainly cows, pigs, chickens or turkeys) are confined tightly together and provided little or no access to sunlight, fresh air or room for natural movement.  A primary source of CAFO-related health and environmental problems is the vast quantities of manure they create. Livestock collectively generate 130 times more waste in the U.S. than humans. CAFOs’ manure ‘lagoons’ often leak and foul water sources, which impairs water quality, human health, and quality of life in rural communities.

“In one infamous case, in 1995 a North Carolina hog farm spilled 25 million gallons of manure into the New River — more than twice the oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez — killing 10 million fish and contaminating more than 350,000 acres of coastal shellfish habitat. This led North Carolina to impose a statewide moratorium on new factory farms in 1997. Manure spills are exceedingly common; tens of thousands have occurred in the last twenty years. Manure runoff can also lead to outbreaks of pathogens (such as Pfisteria in MD or E.Coli 0157:H7) and increased costs to communities for drinking water treatments. Feedlot runoff has also contributed to the Gulf of Mexico’s ‘Dead Zone,’ a sealife-killing algae bloom the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined, as well as a similar catastrophe in Lake Erie.

Try Out These Organic Gardening Tips Today!

TIP! Involve the whole family in your gardening hobby; children find growing things to be very interesting. Growing a garden is a great way to teach your children about nature while allowing you to have time to bond with them.

Organic gardening is a rewarding hobby that anyone can enjoy, as long as they know what they’re doing. But, newcomers may find the process to be somewhat overwhelming at first. How then should someone who does not have any experience start getting involved with organic gardening? They should read this article, obviously!

TIP! Use approximately two or three inches of natural, organic material as some mulch in every single flower bed. Doing this keeps weeds down, keeps the moisture in your plants, and gives more nutrients to the plants.

Maximize your time by keeping your tools close. Put them into a basket you carry with you, or use an apron with many pockets and hanging loops. Keep your trowel, pruning shears and gloves handy so you can do your garden work quickly and easily.

TIP! Space is important to remember when planting an organic garden. Many people don’t realize exactly how much space a plant needs when it grows.

Cover your flower beds with two or three inches of compost or organic mulch. By doing this, you can lock in moisture, discourage weed growth, and nourish your plants. This will also give a nice, professional appearance to your garden all year.

TIP! Regular maintenance prevents your gardening tasks from becoming overwhelming and unappealing. If you’re too busy to do all those little things each day, there are some small steps you can take to not have all that work build up on you.

When you are working in your garden, you will want to have all of your tools in a convenient location. You do not have the time to spend an hour looking for each tool you need. Have all of tools you will need for the day before you head out your garden. When you are finished, put them away neatly for the next time. It may be necessary to don a tool belt or cargo pants with extra pockets.

You can cover your muddied gardening footware easily by keeping plastic bags around. This allows you to keep going, getting back to your garden quickly.

TIP! If slugs are a problem in your garden, use a beer trap to kill them naturally. Take a glass jar and bury it in your garden, making sure that the lip of the jar is even with the soil.

Don’t let your organic gardening tasks stack up for very long. Every time you go outside, you should take care of a few things so that you do not have too much work to do when you have the time to go back to your garden. Try pulling a few weeds from the garden while your dogs are out doing their business.

Laundry Basket

TIP! Though organic farming can present challenges that traditional farming with the use of chemicals does not, harvesting the crops is reward itself for the hard work. Growing your crops organically will offer the best reward for those who eat the foods.

When the time has come to gather up the produce, you need to use an old laundry basket. Most laundry baskets are designed with a multitude of holes. This makes them a perfect strainer for washing your vegetables. Rinse the product off whilst it’s in the basket so that any extra water can strain through the laundry basket’s holes.

TIP! Add mulch to your garden to improve the vitality of the soil. Mulch acts as a protective shield for the soil it covers.

To get the most from your composting efforts, aim for a 1:1 ratio of dried materials and green plant products. “Green” material refers to things like wilted flowers, weeds, leaves from your yard, and grass clippings. Dried plant material comprises shredded paper, cardboard, sawdust, and straw. You should not use things like meat scraps, charcoal, blighted plants or the manure of meat-eating animals in your compost.

TIP! Research local botanical insecticides which can help keep any pest population down. Under certain conditions, organic pesticides can outperform chemical products in effectiveness and safety.

Keep slugs out of your organic garden naturally, using a beer trap. Bury a jar in the garden with it’s mouth open and level to the ground. After you have placed the jar in the soil, fill with beer to approximately one inch of the top. The slugs will be attracted to the beer, and will then become trapped within the jar.

TIP! Whenever you plant tomatoes in your garden, plant multiple sets about three weeks apart. This method prevents a unified harvest, and allows separate times to pull the plants throughout the year.

Adding mulch to your garden can make your soil healthier. Mulch can protect the ground it sits upon. The soil will stay cool in high heat, preventing damage to the roots. This helps soil keep its moisture by reducing the rate of evaporation. It is also very good at controlling the weeds.

TIP! Add mulch into your garden, you want to use at the very least organic material of three inches. You will ensure your garden will be nourished by keeping moisture inside the soil, thus creating a neater appearance of your garden, and repelling weed growth.

After reading this article, you should have a better idea of the appeal of growing an organic garden. Having a properly grown garden can be fun and relaxing. Follow the advice in this article to avoid the common pitfalls associated with organic gardening.

Learning all about natural health for Christians is the first step to success. This article should be read a few times, so that you absorb the advice. Once you have mastered these techniques, continue to learn more about natural health for Christians.
