⚠This post is chemical-free, natural, organic and non-GMO .
People are increasingly concerned about nasty chemicals and the effects that these might have in a long term. Thus companies have realised that they could use this to their benefit and started labelling their products to make them appear safer, healthier or more environmental friendly. What do these labels mean and are these products actually better?
Chemical-free: Chemicals are everywhere, like literally. You, me, a rock, a plant, a chair...everything is made of chemical elements. These are arranged in different ways to make up everything. The only thing chemical-free is vacuum.
Natural: This means that the products are originated in nature, as opposed to synthetic/artificial. However, natural does not mean it is good and synthetic does not mean it is bad. The deadliest substance known, Botulinum toxin, is natural. This compound is made by a type of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum and it is widely used in tiny amounts to paralyze muscles to avoid wrinkly skin. Rings a bell? It is commonly called Botox.
Organic: Organic means it is majorly made of Carbon and Hydrogen atoms (which is
every living thing). However, the term was appropriated for agriculture to mean something that was farmed without the use of artificial fertilization or pesticides.
GMO: It stands for Genetically Modified Organism, meaning an organism (plant/animal) which had its DNA altered. We have been doing this for thousands of years using selective breeding, but now we have tools to directly engineer their DNA and therefore change their characteristics in a much shorter amount of time. Foods are engineered to be bigger, tastier, have increased shelf-life or being resistant to pests. Although there are some environmental problems with GMOs, they have been found to be safe for human consumption.
In the picture I am holding Sodium Chloride which is table salt. This could be labelled either natural, synthetic, artificial, or a chemical, but never chemical-free, organic or
Be careful buying things that are labelled with these words and think whether these labels are being used correctly or if it is just marketing

Noch schnell ein Winterbild bevor der Frühling bald kommt..😜
This is Enzo. He was born with a rare skin condition, causing a lil black freckle to appear on his face. Believed to be the rarest Golden on the planet. 14/10 would give unlimited noggin pats (@mister.enzoviola)

Luca was NOT happy to see I had some time to walk him today. He kept trying to lay down in the shade and didn't want to finish our walk. But regardless, I'm beyond grateful to get to walk him on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon! 😊
La Fecundación In Vitro es uno de tantos métodos de reproducción asistida, y su aplicación requiere ciertos procesos: el primero es la estimulación.
A la mujer se le administran medicamentos, comúnmente llamados fármacos para la fertilidad, con el fin de incrementar la producción de óvulos. Normalmente, una mujer produce un óvulo por mes, pero estos fármacos para la fertilidad le ordenan a los ovarios producir varios óvulos. Durante este paso, la mujer será sometida a ecografías travaginales regulares para examinar los ovarios y exámenes de sangre para verificar los niveles hormonales.
✴️Dog OWNER to Dog TRAINER✴️
In order to create a well behaved dog in a human world, it is important to remember that when owning a dog, it is the owners responsibility to gain enough knowledge of training & apply it in everyday life with their dog! -
Essentially, when you’re a dog OWNER you become the dog TRAINER. Our job as professional dog trainers is to help give the owner enough PROPER knowledge & guidance to help them & their dog become a team, form a strong bond & build clear communication between man & beast. -
Labby & his owner are working towards just that! Before Labby, his owner has only had small, low-energy dogs. So having a high-energy, work motivated, large breed was brand new for her! She is being a responsible dog owner by taking the time out of her busy life to learn how to become Labby’s personal dog trainer for the rest of HIS life! In turn, it is making living with Labby much more enjoyable & stress free! -
Hiring a dog trainer does not mean you hand your dog off to the Pro’s & the dog magically comes back perfect & remains perfect without any work on the owners side. It takes teamwork between dog & owner, it takes daily routine & maintenance training once the dog is back home, and it takes dedication & time! If this isn’t something you’d want to do, get a cat 🤷🏻♀️🐈😂 -
