This is the new DVD that inspired us to begin this outreach project. Called "Eating", it is a fantastic documentary that will convince you that its the meat and dairy that is the root cause of most of the poor health we as a nation are experiencing as well as many other factors that make a plant based diet best for People, the Animals, and the Earth.

"I have run into patients who undergo marked

Pediatrics 1979;64(5) John J. Murray, MD

"I would call milk perhaps the most unhealthful
vehicle for calcium that one could possibly imagine,
which is the only thing people really drink it for,
but whenever you challenge existing dogma...people
are resistant."

Neal Barnard, M.D., Director of the Physician's
Committee for Responsible Medicine

"So don't drink milk for health. I am convinced on the
weight of the scientific evidence that it does not 'do
a body good.' Inclusion of milk will only reduce your
diet's nutritional value and safety."

Save Yourself From Breast Cancer, by Robert M. Kradjian, M.D.

"Everyone that useths milk is unskillful in the word of
righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongeth
to them that are of full age, even those who by reason
of use have their senses exercised to discern both good
and evil."

King James Version of The Holy Bible, Hebrews: 5:13-14

ACID REFLUX (GERD) - This is a great article by Mercola.com that explains the cause and easy remedies. One comment not covered is that food like meat and dairy takes much longer to break down in your stomach which tends to make the situation worse. Also overeating can have the same effect.

When you understand how toxic today's food and drink is, you can begin to understand why we are having so many health problems. It's estimated that 80-90% of the toxins we ingest come from meat and dairy. Even if you already are plant based there are still numerous toxic substances getting into our body that can do us harm. Our advice: buy all organic, stay away from anything from China, make every meal from scratch using whole foods as much as possible.

100 percent of children are found to be exposed to excessive arsenic, dioxins and pesticides in latest study. - July 2013
Researchers at the University of California, Davis recently carried out the first-ever study to consider dietary exposure to 11 toxins simultaneously, including acrylamide, arsenic, lead, mercury, dioxins and several banned pesticides (chlordane, DDE, dieldrin). The study's participants included 364 children aged two to seven, 446 parents of young children, and 149 older adults, all living in California. To assess exposure levels, researchers used food-frequency questionnaires along with toxin content datasets from the Environmental Protection Agency. Exposure levels were then compared with the "cancer benchmark" of each toxin, which is the exposure level that would generate one excess cancer per million people over a 70-year lifetime. Non-cancer benchmark levels were also considered, for health effects other than cancer.

The researchers found that average exposure levels of the children and adults exceeded cancer benchmark levels for arsenic, lead, dieldrin, DDE and dioxins, while the children also exceeded cancer-benchmark levels of chlordane. Both children and adults also exceeded the non-cancer benchmark for acrylamide exposure. Most worrying was that for each of these toxins, children showed greater exposure margins than adults. In fact, children exceeded the cancer benchmark levels 10-fold for DDE, nearly 100-fold for dieldrin, and over 100-fold for arsenic and dioxins. Researchers noted that children are most at risk from these toxins because they are still developing.

Glyphosate - The Overlooked Component of Toxicity in Humans -

As for its effects on humans, Dr. Seneff’s groundbreaking research published in June, 2013 suggests that glyphosate may actually be the most important factor in the development of a wide variety of chronic diseases, specifically because your gut bacteria are a key component of glyphosate’s mechanism of harm. Monsanto has steadfastly claimed that Roundup is harmless to animals and humans because the mechanism of action it uses (which allows it to kill weeds), called the shikimate pathway, is absent in all animals. However, the shikimate pathway IS present in bacteria, and that’s the key to understanding how it causes such widespread systemic harm in both humans and animals.

The bacteria in your body outnumber your cells by 10 to 1. For every cell in your body, you have 10 microbes of various kinds, and all of them have the shikimate pathway, so they will all respond to the presence of glyphosate!

Glyphosate causes extreme disruption of the microbe’s function and lifecycle. What’s worse, glyphosate preferentially affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow and take over. At that point, your body also has to contend with the toxins produced by the pathogens. Once the chronic inflammation sets in, you’re well on your way toward chronic and potentially debilitating disease...

The answer, of course, is to avoid processed foods of all kinds, as they’re virtually guaranteed to contain genetically engineered ingredients, and center your diet around whole, organic foods as toxic pesticides are not permitted in organic farming. Supporting GMO labeling is also important if you value your health, and that of your family and friends, in order to be able to make informed shopping decisions.


Irradiation of food - Yes the FDA approves using radiation to kill bacteria. It's not safe by many accounts and unlike genetic modification at least it has to be labeled as "Irradiated". Organic food can not be irradiated. Restaurants don't have to tell you if they are serving you nuked food and they are more likely to buy food nuked as it is perceived as safer to prevent law suits from food poisoning. Watch out for this symbol which means your food has been "nuked".

SUGAR - The Bitter truth (FRUCTOSE) - 90 min video explores in depth how fructose/sugar can be the most health damaging food you consume. Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity and diabetes epidemic through their effects on insulin. At the 58:30 - 60:00 mark he makes the case as to how sugar is also the cause of the hypertension epidemic.
