A new French study of 70,000 adults found that participants who frequently consume organic dairy, meat and produce had 25 percent fewer cancer diagnoses than those who don’t eat organic foods.

It’s hard to imagine life without ranch, but the dressing has really only been a national hit since the 1970s, when the Clorox company heard about the popular dressing served at California’s Hidden Valley Guest Ranch and decided to make it available to the masses. The guest ranch has long since closed, but as you’ll see here, its legacy lives on. What’s That Flavor? Ranch’s signature tang comes from a buttermilk base that is blended with herbs and spices. Recipes vary but almost all contain the following. HOMEMADE RANCH…
