Defeating the Violence in Our Food and Medicine

Good physical health requires high quality air, food and (unfluoridated) water, correct posture and movement patterns, and regular exercise.

(TASMANIA, Aust.) - Frankenapple Critiques of the mainstream (allopathic) medical industry have long drawn attention to its death-dealing: See, for example, 'Medical Nemesis: The Expropriation of Health' and 'When Doctors Strike, Fewer People Die'.

In fact, according to one heavily-researched report, 'It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States', far surpassing heart disease, cancer and shootings...

Food & Water Watch: Now they`re engineering our apples!

Even major food companies like Gerber and McDonald's, have already said that they won't use the GE apple. We need to show the USDA that the public — that's you — overwhelmingly opposes this freakish fruit.

(WASHINGTON, DC) - GMO Apples You've seen the stories, maybe on the Internet, maybe on your local news. It's a gross curiosity: someone shows off junk food that they claim they've had for 40 years, but it looks like it was made yesterday.

These stories give us all the creeps, because it's just not natural for food not to decay. You should feel the same way about genetically engineered (GE) apples — these "Arctic" apples won't turn brown when you cut them up!

Food & Water Watch: Don`t Let Congress Ruin the Farm Bill

Petition: Tell Congress that now is the time to make sure the Farm Bill gives everyone access to food that's good for us, good for farmers and good for the planet.

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Farm bill Of all the things that Congress has failed at lately, the Farm Bill is one of the biggest. But it's also the biggest deal for those of us who care about where our food comes from. That's why I'm asking you to contact your Members of Congress right now, and tell them to pass the best possible Farm Bill.

The Farm Bill is a massive law that makes the rules not only for farmers, but for almost all aspects of our food, affecting everything from the price of milk, to subsidies for factory farms, to food stamps for families in need. Congress was supposed to renew this bill back in 2012, but the House and Senate can't agree on what the new bill should look like. So they've extended it again, and again, and again.
