To Your Health!
Optimum Health has been stolen from us through irresponsible food, BIG Pharm and BIG farm interests whose true interest is their bottom line. Their bottom line does not have to be at your expense, but you have to be smarter and proactive to protect the health of yourself and of your loved ones, including your pets.
Every person deserves equal access to healthy, affordable food that’s good for our families, the environment and fair to farmers. Unfortunately, corporate interests have taken over our food supply – at the expense of our environment and the health of families like yours.
It is NOW the RIGHT time for a food revolution and revolt against life patents, GMOs, and all other corporate control of our food. It is not too late.
Our family is doing our best to obtain food freedom, one seed at a time, one plate or one garden at a time. We save and share our own seeds, and help preserve all of our rights to food freedom.
We encourage YOU to do the same.
We also write and call food manufacturers requesting provision of clarity and transparency on labelling, and point out hidden toxic ingredients in their products. Example: one manufacturer had no idea dextrose was in the sea salt they ahd purchased. Dextrose is usually a hidden name for corn, most of which is genetically modified...We explain to the manufacturers how lack of transparency, or one toxic substance in their product negatively impacts our buying and lecture decisions.
We provide a thoroughly shocking expose' of hidden names for toxic ingredients in our training classes about nutritional supplements, typical grocery and restaurant neurotoxic foods and the absolute hype of many MLM companies on many, very expensive items. Come and learn with us how to protect the health of yourself and those you love. Unless you schedule a private training offering for your family and friends, our next public class offering will be listed here.
It is PAST time for a change NOW on what appears to be a form of genocide through our food supply. Please let your government officials and your local grocers and restaurant owners – whoever they may be – know that reforming the food system MUST be THE TOP priority.
Learned how to VOTE from an informed position with your food dollars on EVERY item you purchase. If we all vote this way, manufacturers will react to feedback and dwindling sales.
Thanks to the activists and responsible consumers like you all, by working together, we prevented the DARK Act from making it through the U.S. Senate on March 16, 2016. Thanks to all of your calls and emails to US Senators the DARK Act was blocked with a vote of 49 to 48-- but we expect that there will be another chance to keep fighting very soon. We need to stay strong and stand together.
According to Nadia Prupis, staff writer for Common Dreams, "The U.S. Senate on Wednesday rejected a controversial bill that would have made labeling genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food products voluntary. The bill needed 60 votes to pass and only received 44. Opponents of the bill have referred to it as the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act and warned that it would favor corporations over consumers, who widely support labeling GMOs.
"Today, the Senate did the right thing," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. "People want to know if the food they buy contains GMO ingredients. It’s time for Congress to create a mandatory on-package labeling requirement so people can decide for themselves whether they want to eat a food that has been produced using genetic engineering."
Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the Center for Food Safety, said the vote was a "major victory for the food movement and America’s right to know."
"It also is an important victory for Democracy over the attempt of corporate interests to keep Americans in the dark about the foods they buy and feed their families," Kimbrell said.
Had the legislation passed, it would have preempted states from enacting their own GMO labeling requirements. Vermont is poised to put just such a law into effect in July.
Bernie Sanders, the senator from Vermont, said he was "pleased that Congress stood up to the demands of Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations and rejected this outrageous bill. Today’s vote was a victory for the American people over corporate interests."
""All over this country, people are becoming more conscious about the food they eat and the food they serve their kids. When parents go to the store and purchase food for their children, they have a right to know what they are feeding them. GMO labeling exists in 64 other countries. There is no reason it can’t exist here," Sanders said.
This year, we have the opportunity to transform our totally messed up food system. This messed up food system currently costs Americst sans billions of tax dollars, gives rise to type-2 diabetes, obesity and puts some corporate profits ahead of our health.
Unfortunately, the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know what is in their food), will be back - this next time as a rider in some other bill.
No matter where you live, please call these offices TODAY and ask them to stand strong in requiring labeling. We need transparency. Ask them to PLEASE, Please stand with the American people in opposition to ANY new version of the DARK Act. Americans want mandatory labeling of GMOs.

Thank you for taking action. Please share far and wide.
With your help, sustainable farming, labeling of genetically modified foods and greater access to fresh, whole foods for every American family IS possible.
Vote with your dollars at the grocery store and in the farmer's markets.
REALLY learn how to read labels and avoid the pitfalls of deceptive advertising.
Grow your own food (organic and please utilize heirloom seed).
Become a seed saver as those seeds have adapted to your growing locations conditions.
Demand responsible governmental action in labeling of neurotoxins added to our food supply.
Check your salt: the salt in all packaged foods, the salt in school lunches, the salt at the restaurants, the salt in the hospitals and the salt in the nursing homes. It appears aluminum silicate, dextrose (made from GMO corn?) are now the norm... refuse to use this salt.
Our online, private and in person classes can teach you how to get a step ahead of the hidden elephants in the room (ie: neurotoxins that undermine our health and create addictions, hidden genetically modified ingredients, additives in our water supply, radiation, etc.). Giving up breathing is not beneficial to health and giving up showers creates loners. Learn what your options are to optimize health and how to preserve important relationships in your life.
Thank you all for all that you do.
