Questionable Content

I love Mother Earth news but the content in the Women's Health "Magazine" in this app is questionable. The first two articles I read promoted the consumption of soy products and research shows that large amounts of soy can cause a host of problems including infertility. Not to mention, if you eat processed food, it is in everything!! Asian's eat soy in the amount akin to condiments (and it is fermented). Most of the time, soy is planted as a cover crop and then plowed back into the earth as green compost (that does do not it good for us). I eat unprocessed organic food from local farmers that use natural farming practices (The cows eat the grass, then the chickens follows them running around the pasture....). I do not have a lot of knowledge about some of the other topics in the Women's Health "magazine," but I am not sure that I can trust the information.

Disappointed a bit.

I really wanted to hear from people more knowledgeable than myself and experienced. Most of the agricultural info is good but other sections will not open on my 1st generation iPad.

Not good at all

I love Mother Earth news, and I was excited to see this app. However after making a few in app purchases I found articles are not complete. I paid money for articles I can not read. Very disappointed and I would not recommend this app to anyone.
