“….Here is the quote he [Francis Thicke] sent me and four others in a personal note:

“Iowa has one of the most restrictive laws against raw milk in the nation.  No raw milk sales are allowed, even on the farm.   If I am elected, I intend to work with the legislature to try to get a bill passed to allow raw milk sales to consumers who come to a farm to buy the milk. If we could get that passed, it would be a big step forward.” Francis Thicke, Candidate for Iowa Secretary of Agriculture. Continue reading

What passes for organic eggs in America

Here’s an excerpt from Augie’s latest post “Descrambling the eggs and it won’t be easy” on his “Journal of Natural Food and Healing” blog:

“I have wanted to comment on the egg situation the day after the half-billion recall. First, I wanted to say that these types of contaminated eggs are commonplace– the reason, in part, 1 in 4 Americans get a case of food-borne illness each year. It is similar to the leafy green problem–where the spinach and such are grown in concentrated human, industrial and hospital wastes–called biosolids out in the California Salad Bowl….” Continue reading

“A recent study out of Georgetown University Medical Center has concluded that what you eat can affect your children’s and grandchildren’s health, even if they eat healthy themselves. Sonia de Assis and her colleagues observed that rats fed Omega-6 fatty, unhealthy food pass on an increased cancer risk to their children and grandchildren. Omega-6 fats are found in cheap, industrial oils such as soy, vegetable and corn oil. Continue reading

Fluoride Alert — are we slowly poisoning our children? — part II

Once again, we present an excerpt from Augie’s “Journal of Natural Food and Healing” blog, on the very important topic of Fluoride and children:

In Part 1, Dr. Sylvia Onusic provided information on the school fluoride mouth rinse programs along with much data and references on oral hygiene products and other sources of fluoride poisoning. Part 2 covers a dangerous tooth sealant program for schoolchildren as well as some other details that should be brought forth.

Once again we are most pleased to have David Michael as a guest writer on the topic of fluoride overdose. David Michael has spent four decades in the environmental profession in Michael’s experience with hazardous compounds in water, waste and air include monitoring and control and treatment. He has worked for EPA as a regulator and has worked for major oil and tire companies, and many organizations such as Toyota, USPS, USAF as a consultant, publisher and educator. David is a chemical engineer with an environmental specialty and is an advocate for natural food and health freedom.–Augie Continue reading

What you don’t know about Fluoride can damage your children’s health

Here’s an excerpt from a story that affects just about everyone in the western world. This is from a recent post on Augie’s Journal of Natural Food and Healing titled “FLUORIDE ALERT: Slowly poisoning the children” and is by by Sylvia P. Onusic, PhD:

Author Sylvia P. Onusic, Ph.D. Read her bio at the bottom of this post.

“Our kids are getting too much fluoride. It’s here, it’s there, it’s everywhere!  You might think, if a little is good, more is better. Not in the case of fluoride, which has no nutritional value in the human diet and is considered an extremely hazardous material which requires, by law, special transportation and disposal.

Fluorine is the element, and all compounds of fluorine are called fluorides. Calcium fluoride occurs in nature but it is not calcium fluoride that is put into toothpaste, mouth rinse, drinking water, and other products.

The fluoride added to US drinking water is considered a hazardous waste by EPA. Now it is purchased from China.  Remember the melamine in baby formula, the tainted dog food, the childrens’ toys and jewelry? Continue reading

Factory farming and sewage sludge use on farmland blamed for death of lakes

Who says investigative journalism is dead? This report by David Michael, from Augie’s Journal of Natural Food and Healing shows that concerned individuals are still out there, digging the dirt on matters of public concern. Here’s an excerpt from David’s report:

“Human illnesses and animal deaths have occurred recently from neurotoxins secreted by a heavy slime of blue and green algae floating on Ohio’s largest lake—Grand Lake St. Mary’s (Grand Lake) in Auglaize County. This is a lake that has been deteriorat ing for decades, but especially so in the past 10 years as factory farms have sprung up all over the area, and more are being built. Continue reading
