Whole Foods Magazine is here to inform and educate consumers about not only natural products but also health current events, the two go hand in hand. Our editors are constantly researching new information about hot topics, such as organic food brands, health and beauty products, and even health current events that are happening in the media. While we may not think that the all-natural realm isn’t ever changing, it is. There are new laws that are currently being passed and more scientific evidence that supports how awful some of the food on the grocery store shelves can be.  

 

In addition to grocery items, our health current events focus on what is happening throughout congress to address the ever growing issues that surround non-organic and processed foods. In more recent news, the media highlighted the issues presented with a bill that requires labeling of any product with genetically engineered ingredients. Whole Foods Magazine was right in the action to report on the facts of this issue and will continue to report for any new information that arises. Learn more about this issue and many more below!
