This FAN production (one of FAN’s most popular) presents a powerful indictment of the water fluoridation program through interviews with a Nobel Laureate in Medicine, three scientists from the National Research Council’s landmark review on fluoride, as well as dentists, medical doctors, and leading researchers in the field.
Ending water fluoridation is not a pipe dream. Since 1990, over 300 communities in the United States and Canada — representing millions of people — have rejected water fluoridation schemes. Read below to learn the seven ways you can join this historic movement. Then ask yourself: what role would I like to play?
Over 90% of Americans support FDA mandated labeling of genetically engineered foods. Check out this video to see to stars like, Michael J Fox, Ziggy Marley and 25 others celebrities join the millions to voice their support for GE labeling!
Why is this so important? We have make informed choices as a consumer. We have a right to know about food we eat and feed our families, but under current regulations, we don’t have that ability when it comes to GE foods.
Did you know? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may soon approve genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. And the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is considering a new type of herbicide-resistant corn that will promote the use of more chemicals in our food supply.
Speak out! Check out the Just Label It website and join these celebrities (and millions of people like you) in speaking out for our right to know! www.justlabelit.org
About Just Label It:
JUST LABEL IT is a national coalition of more than 600 diverse organizations dedicated to the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods, also referred to as genetically-modified, or GMOs. The Just Label It message is simple: consumers have a right to know about our food so we can make informed choices about what we eat and feed our families.
So we have covered lots to do with “organic” and we even dedicated a post to “What is Organic?”
We can never talk to much about something good right?
What does organic mean?
To sum it up. It mean’s a whole lot more than most people think. These days not all foods are the same or equal. Knowing what you are buying, knowing what you’re eating and knowing how it affects your body is important.
Right now an important case is being heard halfway around the world in Western Australia about organic farmer Steve Marsh, whose organic field was contaminated by his neighbor’s genetically engineered canola. As a result, Steve lost his organic certification and as much as 70% of his Steve’s farm has been contaminated with Monsanto’s patented genes.
With clever fine print in their seed contracts, Monsanto is not legally liable for their patented genes contaminating an organic farmer’s field due to their “no liability” agreement farmers are forced to sign when they plant Monsanto’s GMO seeds.
As a result, Steve’s family’s livelihood has been put at risk. He could literally lose everything.
Center for Food Safety and Beyond Pesticides have joined forces to launch the BEE Protective Campaign, aimed at protecting honey bees and other pollinators from pesticides. The BEE ProtectiveCampaign gives you the tools to help honey bees and other pollinators right in your own community.
Spread the Word!
Please share our Bee Protective Pledge with your friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, or email and ask them to join us in protecting our honey bees and other pollinators from harmful pesticides. http://bit.ly/BeeProtectivePledge
We’ll start you off with these, trust me we have more under our belt that we will compile into a list for you to add to your watch list. But for now, you will have plenty to keep the food for thoughts coming.

Tell USDA and President Obama to Stop Dow Chemical’s “Agent Orange” Crops
Over a hundred million additional pounds of toxic pesticides associated with cancers and birth defects are coming to a field near you. UNLESS YOU STOP IT!
“Agent Orange” crops are genetically engineered by Dow Chemical to promote the use of 2,4-D, one of the herbicides in the toxic mixture Vietnam veteran’s know as Agent Orange. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is on the cusp of approval, even though they acknowledge the use of this toxic pesticide will skyrocket.
