3) Bill C-51 Meeting Vancouver Quadra, June 13th

Message from Joyce Murray, MP

Dear Friends,

I am very concerned about the Conservative government's proposed changes to regulations covering natural health care and products contained in Bill C-51.

That is why I am inviting you to join me and my special guests at a Town Hall meeting to discuss the potential impact of this bill.

What effect will C-51 have on your access to natural health products, your naturopathic physician, traditional Chinese medicine and other forms of complimentary medicine and therapy?

Just where do we stand? And where do we go from here?

This forum will give you an opportunity to hear about and be heard from regarding these important questions.

I hope you can make it.

Warm Regards,
Joyce Murray

Subject: New Louisiana message. Please sign

A NEW second letter TO THE LOUISIANA LEGISLATORS IS URGENTLY NEEDED. ONLY TAKES A MINUTE. PLEASE SEE THE FOLLOWING. THANK YOU!

---------------------------------------------

FLUORIDE ACTION NETWORK
FAN Bulletin #966: Please send New Louisiana message

June 5, 2008

Thank you to all those (700+) who sent the Online letter to the Louisiana State representatives over the last few days. In this we raised the arguments against fluoridation, but we are well aware of how proponents traditionally trump these arguments by using the "authority" of a long list of endorsers.

We urge you to send the second letter (below) to the legislators which challenges the credibility of those who feel it is sufficient to put on a white coat and recite the pro-fluoridation mantra.

To send this second ONLINE MESSAGE please go to: http://la2.fluoridealert.org

Thank you.

6) Biotech Alert Of The Week: Stop Bush's Biotech Bullying!

According to the Chicago Tribune, the White House is attempting to force famine stricken countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, to plant genetically engineered (GE) crops, as part of a $770 million aid package. Untested and largely unregulated GE crops are controversial, not only in Europe and other industrialized countries, but in the developing world as well. At least 40 countries around the world have restricted GE farming and ingredients in foods by requiring mandatory labeling, while a number of nations and regions have banned genetically modified organisms in agriculture altogether. Beyond health and environmental concerns, and contrary to industry propaganda, GE crops do not significantly increase yields, but rather force farmers to stop saving their seeds and instead buy toxic chemicals and highly priced patented seeds from biotech companies such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dupont, Dow,'s and BASF. Please take action today and urge your members of Congress to reject the Bush Administration's force-feeding of biotech crops to impoverished nations: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_12463.cfm

7) Food as Medicine - London Ont. & Area

How Real Food Could Help Solve
the Health Care Crisis
Tuesday, June 17, 2008 ~ 7-9 pm
Wolf Performance Hall
Central Library
251 Dundas street

PAM KILLEEN from London, Ontario, is the co-author of the NY Times bestselling book, The Great Bird Flu Hoax. She has been independently studying nutrition and natural health for twenty years. Pam's interest in nutrition and natural health stems from overcoming a lengthy battle with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivities and environmental illness. Through her experience, she understands why consumers are so confused about what to do in order to achieve optimal health.

Since the introduction of commercially processed foods and food fads into our diets, we?re experiencing skyrocketing rates of chronic and degenerative diseases and are led to believe that medical doctors and insurance companies have the only solutions. Pam will describe the benefits of returning to traditional foods and how these foods could help solve our current health care crisis, why it's so important to eat nutrient dense, local, whole foods and how food affects our health.
