Most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. That’s the conclusion we have reached following completion of the 2007 Mother Earth News egg testing project. Our testing has found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:• 1⁄3 less cholesterol
• 1⁄4 less saturated fat
• 2⁄3 more vitamin A
• 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
• 3 times more vitamin E
• 7 times more beta carotene

We have 1700 chciken at Eatwell Farm producing free range pastured eggs. The chicken move around the farm on pastures and in the orchard. They are fed certified organic feed and pasture on certified organic land. Eggs are available to our CSA memembers and when we have excess at the Farmers Market in San Francisco and at Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco. The eggs taste wonderful, are very good for you and totally certified organic. The chicken houses are only closed when we move them. At all other times the chciken roam free.
I have shown this video to a local cancer support group and they loved Jerry’s presentation. Hopefully more people will see it here.
This is Jerry Brunetti’s highly informative video lecture Food as Medicine (2005) where he lays out his experience with terminal cancer which he successfully overcame with eating healthy and different food than he used to eat until then. In 1999 he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and given 6 months to live. He did not submit to chemotherapy, but rather, developed his own unique dietary approach to enhance his immune system. Jerry shares his personal experiences and provides his recipe for healthy living. You will learn about the crucial importance of minerals, which foods to choose for your best health requirements and what to avoid. After viewing this fascinating lecture you’ll realize the remarkable value of food in building good foundations, and providing buffers, to keep your body healthy. 3h long. A must see for everyone.
