Sleeping ducks

Jordanne just found this tidbit about duck eggs on the internet: “Besides being great to bake with duck eggs are sought by cancer patients. Apparently, duck eggs are alkaline (basic), chicken eggs are acidic. Cancer cells don’t thrive in a basic environment, so some cancer patients adjust their body’s environment by eating alkaline foods like duck eggs. “

Amazing! This is good info to know.

Duck eggs are also sought by parents who’s kids have a form of Autism and are allergic to chicken eggs.   We have one client/couple who picks up duck eggs weekly from us because their child unfortunately suffers from this illness.

Jordanne also noted that one lady out East is selling her duck eggs for $1 each – duck eggs are certainly valuable both for health and monetary reasons.


To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60%alkaline forming foods & 40% acid forming foods. Torestore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkalineforming foods & 20% acid forming foods. Generally,alkaline forming foods include: most fruits, greenvegetables, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs andseasonings, and seeds and nuts. Generally, acid formingfoods include: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains, andlegumesChicken eggs are considered generally acidic, but in afree range chicken, the white of the egg has a pH of 9(highly alkaline). The yoke of the egg has a pH of 6.5(slightly acidic).

The white of the egg with a pH of 9 acts as a protectivecloak shielding the yolk from bacteria, viruses, andfungi. Very Low Alkaline Diet & Alkaline Forming Foods to Balance Ph Oats, duck eggs, ginger tea, grain coffee, ghee, quinoa,umeboshi vinegar, wild rice, coconut oil, flax oil, oliveoil, japonica rice, chive, celery, beet, okra, most otherseeds, turnip greens, cilantro, lettuce, blue berries, andbanana.

Did you know you can test your PH using the same strips that gardeners use to test soil?   Just place the strip on your tongue and you can determine how acid or alkaline your body is. pH (for “potential hydrogen”)1.0 to 6.9 is considered acidic, 7.0 is neutral, and 7.1 to 14.0 is alkaline. The lower the pH number, the greater the acidity, and the higher the pH number, the greater the alkalinity.


Please take a moment to look at the letter from the Organic Consumers Association. We know you care about organic agriculture and would want to know about backroom politics aimed at eroding years of dedicated work that has gone into developing our organic standards and the public participation crucial to maintaining these into the future.

Please note that action must occur immediately as a Senate vote may occur by Friday, Sept 23.

After 35 years of hard work, the U.S. organic community has built up a multi-billion dollar alternative to industrial agriculture, based upon strict organic standards and organic community control over modification to these standards. Now, large corporations such as Kraft, Wal-Mart, & Dean Foods–aided and abetted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and members of the Organic Trade Association are moving to lower organic standards by allowing Bush appointees in the USDA National Organic Program to create a broad list of synthetic ingredients that would be allowed in organic production. Even worse these proposed regulatory changes will reduce future public discussion and input and take away the National Organic Standards Board’s (NOSB) traditional lead jurisdiction in setting standards. What this means, in blunt terms. is that USDA bureaucrats and industry lobbyists, not consumers, will now have more control over what can go into organic foods and products. Act Now!

    Wow. You have no idea how this article hit me. My younger son’s pre-school teachers tried to have him labeled autistic, even though he never met the emotional criteria. Just before he hit kindergarten, after going round after round with the pediatrition and getting nothing but ” he needs growth hormones” (because that costs money, allergies don’t), my mother-in-law (not a medical expert) suggested my husband and son were allergic to chicken eggs.
    Now in first grade, he’s back with his pre-school speech teacher…and she is absolutely shocked at how much he’s progressed in a year since he’s gone egg-free. We’re a bit impressed ourselves. I told her straight out it was an egg-allergy…hopefully she’ll remember it and be able to help another family out of that jungle. Right now we use energy-G egg replacer and tofu-mayo, but I have plans for a small pond and some ducks in one of the odd places in our back yard. I have the best excuse now, too. The health of my family.
