Freedom of the right to know30 Senators voted against this anti-consumer, anti-states’ rights bill – see who they are

 

When the U.S. Senate voted this week to pass a federal law preempting Vermont’s mandatory GMO labeling law, 30 Senators did the right thing.  Thanks Organic Consumers Association for letting us know and collecting all this information.

Thanks Senators for standing in support of the American public!  We commend you and support you.  Blessings to you all of you!
Coach D, Donna Appel, A Voice For Change and lead health style counselor at New Medicine Foundation

Here is the information as taken from the Organic Consumers Association post dated July 7th, 2016.  Please share this with those you know and love.  We really do need to band together to make a difference and get out from under the corporate takeover so prevalent in politics today.

These 30 Senators voted against this anti-consumer, anti-states’ rights bill that was rammed through the Senate without due democratic process.

Some of these Senators were no doubt under a lot of pressure from industry groups, and from their fellow Senators, including the authors of the bill, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), to go over to the DARK side.

But they stood up to their deep-pocketed opponents. They voted with the people.

Please take a minute to see if your Senators on the list of those who stood up for your right to know yesterday, then “tweet” them a thank you. It’s also good to retweet the Senators’ own tweets about yesterday’s vote.

Blumenthal (D-CT)

Thank Sen. Blumenthal on Twitter by retweeting his status announcement, “The latest Senate #GMOlabeling “compromise” is an attack on consumers’ basic right to know what is in their food.”

Do you think we have the right to know what is in our food?

Posted in Environmental, GMOs, Health, Knowledge is Power Series on 29.06.16

GMO FoodDo you think we have the right to know what is in our food?  The U.S. Senate doesn’t seem to think so.

 

 

Here is the latest headline Senate Agriculture Committee Leaders Strike Deal on Agriculture Biotechnology Compromise.  It describes how U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-Kan) along with Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich) released a bipartisan agreement establishing a national disclosure standard for GMO food. Genetically modified organisms are found in many commercial food products. Here is the link to the actual bill http://www.agriculture.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Ag%20biotech%20compromise%20proposal.pdf

Don’t know about you but I want to know what is in the product I am purchasing. In fact, we all need to know. More than 60 other countries have banned GMO food and here we are allowing big profit-driven manufacturing companies to dictate what we should and should not know!  You need to know that if this bill passes, it would result in the complete banning of GMO labelling. 

Currently this bill is being rushed through Congress.  Why is that?  Well, a handful of states hGMO Food Labelave voted to make mandatory labeling of GMO’s in food and this bill would over-rule that. The bill also states that no foods need to be labeled for two years. Plus, any food product that is less than 50% GMO’d could be considered non-GMO. After two years, the USDA would require a company to place a scan label on their goods. It would probably look something like this one….

And food derived from GMO-fed animals would be considered non-GMO. That’s right, no labeling required.

Do you think our elected leaders should fight for our right to know what is in the food that we ingest? I think they should but apparently they don’t. Did you know that Senators Stabinow (MY Senator!) and Roberts crafted a bill that would keep us in the dark?  The Senators jointly said, “This bipartisan agreement is an important path forward that represents a true compromise. Since time is of the essence, we urge our colleagues to move swiftly to support this bill.”

Yes, we need to move swiftly if we want to protect our right to know.  If this stuff is so safe, why all the hoopla to keep us from knowing? I smell a rat. We must work together and tell our Senators and Representatives to vote no on this ludicrous bill. Call your Senators now. Tell them we demand to know what is in our food supply. Here is the main U.S. Capitol number  (202) 224-3121. Don’t delay a minute. Call and ask to speak to your Senators. If you get a recording, leave a message.

Our political system is clearly broken.  This bipartisan agreement is a disaster. We need to protect our families from these mega profit driven giants.  Our politicians need to understand who they work for and they need to start working for us.  It is time to make your voice heard.  Help me be A Voice for Change and protect our freedom and the very foundation that this great country was built on!

Monsanto – The Agricultural Poster Child – Help Us Fight Their Injustices

Monsanto AgriculturalMonsanto The Agricultural Poster Child

Help Us Fight The Injustices

 

 

Monsanto isn’t the biggest or the worst company in the world. But this St. Louis biotech giant has become the agricultural poster child for all that’s wrong with our industrial food and farming system.  With approx 21,000 employees in 66 countries and revenues exceeding 15 billion, they are indeed a big shot in the industry.

As was stated in a recent article that I read, this “monopolizer of seeds is the poster child for an industry that is the source of at least one-third of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.  And is largely responsible for the depletion of soil, water and biodiversity. Not to mention the company’s marginalization — and sometimes terrorization — of millions of small farmers.”

“Since the early 20th century, Monsanto has marketed highly toxic products that have contaminated the environment and permanently sickened or killed thousands of people around the world. In a rare exception, Monsanto was recently ordered to pay $46.5 million to compensate victims of its PCB poisoning. Sometimes the company settles out of court, to avoid having to admit to any “wrongdoing.”  “But for the most part, thanks to the multinational’s powerful influence over U.S. politicians, Monsanto has been able to poison with impunity.”

I am thrilled with what is going to take place. It’s happening in The Hague, Netherlands on October 15th and 16th of this year.  The International City of Peace and Justice panel, a distinguished panel of international judges, will hear testimony from witnesses that will be represented by legitimate lawyers, who have been harmed by Monsanto.

In preparation for the citizens’ tribunal, and during witness testimony, the judges will consider six questions that are relevant. This isn’t just in relation to Monsanto either. It is about all companies involved in shaping the future of agriculture.  Read more about this, hopefully, game changing tribunal. Learn how you can support their efforts.

Another171811358 Big Pharma Crony
is now in Charge of the FDA!
Are you Flippin Kidding Me?
More Corporate Corruption!
More Government Take Over!

 

 

This is a good summary of the continuation of corporate corruption which was written by Dr. David Brownstein. I couldn’t have said it better myself. I thought I would share his comments and give you some food for thought.

 

toiletpaperWhen done reading,
you need to get off you ass and do something before
you end up wiping your ass with our constitution.

 

 

Another election day in Michigan.  “Again, as in past elections, I am unhappy with the choices presented to me.

As for my politics—I dislike both major parties and feel they have failed our country terribly. We are in desperate need of a third party where healthy, normal citizens can run for the major offices.

In the U.S., as in other countries, we have a lot of problems. But, the biggest problem–the white elephant in the room– is our dysfunctional health care system. We spend nearly 20% of our GNP on health care—well more than any other Western country– and have little to show for it. On every single health indicator as monitored by the World Health Organization, Americans finish dead last. As compared to other Western countries, America finishes last in every category including infant mortality and longevity. We take more medicines and inject our children with more vaccines than any other people on the face of the planet. Our children are suffering more and more health disorders and each generation seems sicker.

According to the WHO, our children are sicker than children from other Western countries. And, to top it off, our medicines are the most expensive. Clearly, taking more medicines or injecting more vaccines is not the answer.

I fear our health care expenditures will bankrupt the country if we do not change things.

So, which candidates could you trust to change this situation?

Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio have all been well-funded by Big Pharma. They have all received hundreds of thousands of dollars in financing from Big Pharma. Each one of these candidates is already bought and sold by the Big Pharma Cartel. None of these candidates can be counted on to make the right decisions when it comes to the Big Pharma Cartel.

Recently the Senate confirmed a new director of the FDA—Dr. Robert Califf.  I have two words for this confirmation: Oy vey.

Dr. Califf is the epitomy of the Big Pharma Cartel insider. (Note—the next bit of info was taken form Naturalnews.com),  A disclosure statement on the website of Duke Clinical Research Institute says “Robert M. Califf, MD, reports receiving research grant support from Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson/Scios, Lilly, Merck, and Schering Plough, and consulting fees from Annenberg, Aterovax, Bayer / Ortho McNeil, BMS, Boehringer Ingelheim, GSK, WebMd / theheart.org, Johnson and Johnson / Scios, Kowa Research Institute, McKinsey & Company, Medtronic, Merck, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Sanofi Aventis, and Schering Plough, and has an equity position with NITROX, LLC.”

In disclosure information for a 2013 article in Circulation, Dr. Califf’s also lists financial links to Gambro, Regeneron, Gilead, AstraZeneca, Roche, other companies and equity positions in four medical companies. The medical website Medscape discloses that Dr. Califf “served as a director, officer, partner, employee, advisor, consultant or trustee for Genentech” as well as for Medscape LLC / theheart.org. Portola Pharmaceuticals says Dr. Califf served on the Board of Directors until he was appointed FDA Deputy Commissioner for Medical Products and Tobacco.

Appearing on PBS with Susan Dentzer after Vioxx was withdrawn because of its links to thousands of heart attacks and stroke, Dr. Califf said, “Merck played by the rules from everything that I’ve seen.” He also said, “many of us consult with the pharmaceutical industry, which I think is a very good thing. They need ideas and then the decision about what they do is really up to the person who is funding the study.” What?

The FDA is tasked with regulating Big Pharma. The FDA has not been doing a very good job of that in the past as illustrated in the Vioxx debacle where 50,000 people died and over 100,000 suffered a stroke or heart attack from taking drug—Vioxx—that never should have been approved. Merck played by the rules? Give me a break, Dr. Califf.

So, who opposed the confirmation of Dr. Califf? Not the two Republican Senators who are currently running for office—Cruz and Rubio.

Bernie Sanders, currently running for the Democratic nomination opposed Califf’s nomination because Senator Sanders felt he was a Big Pharma insider.

That leaves Donald Trump on the Republican side who has received very little money (similar to Bernie Sanders) from Big Pharma. I saw a report where he received less than $1,000 from Big Pharma. Trump has made it clear that he will not be influenced by big donors in the election.

It is a sad situation that most of the candidates who are running for the most powerful position in the U.S. are bought and sold by Big Pharma before they are even elected.

What can we do? We can say we have had enough and elect someone who will work for us, the citizens. I see the appeal of Trump and Sanders as they are the only two candidates who I feel are not going to be pawns for Big Pharma.

I know both candidates have their issues, but that is how I see it. Unless we change who we elect, big Pharma will keep doing as it pleases, until we are bankrupt. Also, it is time to elect a whole new Congress who can stand up to Big Pharma.

Keep in mind, these elected officials should work for us, not Big Pharma.”

1901225_10152165181369130_834719233_nThank you Dr. Brownstein.  I really could not have said this better.  What is happening to us as Americans and as human beings living on this planet is criminal. We need to wake up and smell the coffee before it turns to mud; before we turn to puppets and sick ones at that.

Never Give Up – This is a F..king Outrage – It Could Happen to You

plane spraying in califToxic Spraying!!!

The Bush admin appropriated almost a billion dollars from Homeland Security in 2007 to spray 11 counties in Northern California. This involves spraying the communities of more than 7 million people with toxic chemicals for up to 10 years! They used the excuse of combating a tiny “apple moth” that had done no damage and already had been brought into balance without chemicals (with organic polyculture) in New Zealand.

Soon the spraying commenced. Animals, birds and insects were dying and people were getting sick. Joining together and using the Thrive 12 Sector model to coordinate collaboration, the thousands of volunteers followed the money.  They exposed the toxins and those responsible, and found the scientific, medical, agricultural and economic truths behind the scenes. They mounted a media campaign and filed lawsuits to demand accountability. We told the government “officials” face to face in countless hearings and media ap­pear­ances, “We will hold you individually responsible. These injuries and deaths are on your hands…and we will be relentless until this stops.”

The government agencies (USDA, CDFA) backed off temporarily and the spraying stopped, but they continued to press for implementation of the program. We got the Governor to make the spray company, against its wishes, to reveal the ingredients we were all ingesting. What was touted as a harmless pheromone was in fact shown to contain a dangerous cocktail of 10 chemicals. Six of those chemicals where harmful to humans. It confirmed our worst fears when we saw compounds that were carcinogenic (cancer causing), mutagenic (gene changing) and endocrine disrupting (causing infertility).

It was only on December 2, 2015 that we got news that the Federal and State authorities have finally given up. This is a huge relief, but even more it is a reminder to all of you who are out there working to stop GMOs, geo-engineering, pesticides, fluoridated water, toxic vaccines and pharmaceuticals, financial frauds, banking schemes, unwarranted surveillance and hundreds of other destructive and unjust police state measures… carry on!     Source: Never Give Up | Thrive

Majority, Minority, Majority Healthcare Food Reflect Take Action

12114_10152080644434130_927587039_n“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” Mark Twain.  I love that quote. Mark was a wise man. I reflect daily on the plight of health in America today. I reflect on what the pharmaceutical industry dishes out in the name of health with the use of synthetic drugs. I reflect on what the bio-tech giants are making in their labs and expecting us to eat without a thought. I reflect when a doctor expects me to “cut out” a body part that is giving me problems insisting it is the only way. I reflect when industry big wigs suddenly become those in charge of guarding the hen houses of agencies such as the FDA, the AMA, the CIA, and the EPA, to name a few. I reflect when political giants are sitting on the boards of industrial, pharmaceutical and medical companies or are receiving money for anything even remotely related in support of those companies. I am always reflecting, always paying attention to those that put profits ahead of health.

Today I find myself in the minority of people that are taking their health into their own hands. I put my health ahead of profits. I put what food goes into my body ahead of the bottom line. I refuse to take substances that do not repair my body but instead cover up the issues. You can’t cover up or cut out an issue. It will just move from one place on to the next.

I have chosen to put my great health and wellness in the hands of local farmers for my food source.  For my health care needs, the New Medicine Foundation is my number one choice.  Dr. Edward W. Pearson and the team at NMF are ever present and leading the way, changing the face of medicine.

1385282_10151665910376160_352375928_nNever give up. We are winning and starting to see the demise of corporate corruption the likes of Monsanto. The public is very powerful when we work together. Watch this – http://naturalsociety.com/victory-senate-to-kill-monsanto-protection-act-amid-outrage/

Continued exposure has had Germany tell the EU that it is banning GMO crops. El Salvador kicked Monsanto and their seeds out of their country. 65 nations are now labeling and 14 have banned GMO’d crops. The dark act (deny American’s the right to know) HR 1599 passed the US House of Representatives. If you look at house members who voted in favor of the dark act you see that those individuals received an average of 3 times as much money from big ag as those that voted against it. Communicate with your senators. Tell them enough is enough. http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Monsanto’s stock has gone down. Monsanto is going to be tried at the international criminal court in 2016 for charges of ecocide and crimes against humanity and nature. This is a class action suit organized by Millions against Monsanto, Organic Consumers Association and many other groups.

TPP Deal Finally Revealed – 10 Reasons To Be Concerned And Take Action

Posted in Environmental, GMOs, Knowledge is Power Series, Political America, Take Action! on 02.12.15

TPP Deal Finally Revealed – Not Funny!

TPPDetails of the long-secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are finally made public.  Here are some details you may not be aware of. 10 reasons to be concerned about the TPP deal and take action.

  1. TPP provisions were apparently kept secret from all but the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
  1. Leaked documents during the trade negotiations provided reason to be concerned about the final TPP agreement. A review of the deal’s twenty-nine chapters and five thousand pages proves these early concerns were completely justified.
  1. Generally speaking, passage of the TPP would mean that any US food safety law concerning things like pesticides, food additives, or labeling that is more stringent than “international standards” may be considered an “illegal barrier” to trade, and subject to enforcement.
  1. The deal includes an investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system in which multinational corporations can challenge a host company’s regulations in an international court. ISDS has been a fixture in other trade treaties, including NAFTA (the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement). It has been used to challenge countries’ economic policies, anti-smoking efforts, and environmental preservation laws.
  1. The trade agreement also undercuts US efforts to inspect food imports. The agreement limits food import inspections at the border “to what is reasonable and necessary”. If an issue arises, a country must also provide an “opportunity for a review of the decision.” This provision, referred to as the Rapid Response Mechanism, may give exporting countries the right to challenge basic food safety provisions in the US.
  1. The TPP contains an entire chapter on intellectual property rights, with many provisions relating to pharmaceutical patents. No doubt heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry, the trade deal will force signatory countries to accept many of the same patent laws that have kept drug prices so astronomically high in the US.
  1. The deal would extend and broaden certain patent and data protections for the pharmaceutical industry. Big Pharma can then use them to keep prices high and delay competition from generics.
  1. The TPP also allows a practice known as “evergreening”. Evergreening lets drug companies extend a patent on an old drug when it can be used to treat a new condition. Evergreening is another boon for Big Pharma’s monopoly power.
  1. The TPP deal expands biotech’s monopoly over the seed industry. The deal requires all twelve countries to join a number of global intellectual property treaties. One of these treaties is the 1991 International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV91), which emphasizes the rights of seed companies over farmers.  This particular treaty
  • Requires intellectual property (IP) protection for all plant species;
  • Provides IP protection for 20 to 25 years; and
  • Stops farmers from exchanging seeds. Exchanging seeds is a common and important practice in many developing nations and indeed throughout human history.
  1. If these gifts to industry were not enough, President Obama moved earlier this summer to have the deal “fast-tracked”.   Fast-tracked means that Congress will be given a fixed period to review the agreement. Legislators must make a yes/no vote without the possibility of amending the deal in the alloted time given. Essentially, it’s “take it or leave it.”

The TPP deal undermines consumers and farmers and extends monopoly rights to major industries.  Click here to take action now before it is too late. http://www.anh-usa.org/tpp-a-disaster-for-natural-health/

Wheat – Is it making you fat? Get the facts on wheat / gluten.

WheatWheat – it isn’t what we were eating 50 years ago.  Get the info you need to understand how wheat and gluten affect your body and why.  Learn how you can experience permanent weight loss and relief from broad spectrum health and digestive woes by getting the skinny on wheat and gluten.

You too could lose 20, 30 or even 50 pounds in a few months, reverse diabetes, improve digestive issues, reduce and/or eliminate inflammation and arthritic pain just by learning about wheat and gluten.

Listen to the replay as Coach D reveals the facts on wheat and gluten and grains in general and the affect that they have on overall health, weight, glycemic swings, etc.

This is an eye opening look into a food group that has gone amuck.  Nothing will ever change unless we demand it and stop purchasing inferior products that are harmful to over bodies.

Click here and see what we have for future events by joining our virtual health group on Meet Up.

We are turning a corner in healthcare today. Coach D, Dr. Edward W. Pearson and the team at the New Medicine Foundation are leading the way to great health and wellness, by getting to the root of issues and healing the body instead of synthetically medicating it.  NMF practices virtual health care, helping thousands of people around the world heal and thrive.  Join us today and learn.

Chemical Additives by Name and Purpose

Using HCG and moving through the process of detox and weight loss also necessitates educating people about chemical additives. This is a virtual meeting series dealing with the use of hCG for weight loss and detoxification. I thought it also important to stress the fact that if you are detoxing away toxins and chemicals, you won’t want them reentering your body if you plan to stay healthy.  It is nearly impossible to stay away from all chemicals and toxins on a daily basis. We can, however, minimize our contact with them. We can also deter manufacturer’s from using them by simply not purchasing these contaminated products.  This is a special mini presentation dealing with just a few harmful chemicals.  Buyer beware.  This isn’t a meeting just for weight loss detox individuals.  Everyone will benefit.  Tell your friends to join our group today. They too can get informed, educated and become smart shoppers and consumers.  Participate live from home, work, auto, anywhere (sign up on MeetUp) or listen to the replay anytime by logging into the A Voice For Change blog page(www.avoiceforchange.com/blog).  Can’t be on the call live, email me your questions, then listen to the answers on the recording.  Here is the recording on chemical additives:

I would love for you to join us live on Monday evenings.  We meet every Monday evening at 8:30pm Eastern time via teleconference.  Topics for upcoming meetings are shown on Meet Up and vary week to week.  These topics include but are not limited to weight issues and management, the use of hCG, detoxification, hormone, adrenal and thyroid balancing, addictions, psychology of food, food quality, food prep, recipes, etc and all that goes along with getting and staying healthy.

I hope you will join me soon.

Many blessings to you all, Coach D, Donna Appel, CEO A Voice For Change  and Head Health Style Counselor for the New Medicine Foundation.
