From the Organic Consumers Associattion

In April OCA launched a boycott of two leading organic dairy brands and distributors, Horizon (a division of Dean Foods) and Aurora, for mislabeling their products as "USDA Organic." All of Aurora's and much of Horizon's "organic" milk is coming from factory farm feedlots where the cows have been brought in from conventional farms and have little or no access to pasture. After three months, thousands of consumers and a number of co-ops and natural food stores have joined the boycott. Now it's time to expand the boycott to five grocery chains selling bogus organic milk from Aurora Organic:

  • Costco's "Kirkland Signature"
  • Publix’s “High Meadows"
  • Safeway's "O" Organics brand
  • Wild Oats' organic milk
  • Giant's "Nature's Promise."
  • In addition OCA is calling for a boycott of Horizon's sister soy brands–Silk soymilk and White Wave tofu–which have begun turning away from U.S. organic farmers and instead importing cheap organic soybeans from China and Brazil, where labor rights and environmental standards are routinely violated.

Please send an email message to the Shameless Seven, telling them to stop violating organic standards and to source certified organic foods and ingredients from North American family farmers. And please forward this email to interested friends and colleagues.

SENATE BILL 1873 BANS DRUG & VACCINE DAMAGE CLAIMS

Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND and
Elissa Meininger

NewsWithViews.com

In between news broadcasts of hurricane disasters and relief efforts we have all heard the hysteria surrounding the avian flu. Is this slated to be the next disaster that distracts us from a hundred other pressing concerns in our world? Probably. There is just too much money to be made selling drugs and flu shots as we give governments more power to herd us into doctors’ offices to force us to use some medication we don’t want. It’s Big Pharma’s dream come true.

As advocates of natural healing arts, both Elissa and I have connections throughout the industry so whenever we need to find out what’s really going on, we have a vast pool of resources. In this regard, we have known for months that the avian flu scare is being so overblown that you would think we are living in the dark ages infected with the black plague. As we wrote in our News With Views article “US Infectious Disease Policy, Based on the Wrong Germ Theory” modern medicine is not the end-all, be-all, when it comes to preventing and/or treating infectious diseases, particularly those that end up as epidemics and now as the new scary word “pandemics”. Natural healing arts practitioners have always had a better handle on how to build up your immune system to prevent you from allowing the latest germ to gain a foothold or at least make it a mild illness of short duration.

So it is with avian flu. We already know that at least one herbal product now on the market has been tested against avian flu and killed it within 20 minutes. We also know that some homeopathic product manufacturers have already updated some of their products, as they do every year, to address the latest flu germs so avian flu isn’t scary to them either. And, of course, those who use vitamins and minerals to keep their immune systems up and running as well as address various illnesses also have their protocols lined up.

But we can’t tell you about any of these methods of helping you stay alive and well during what is said to be a world-wide outbreak of a new mutated germ.

WHY? Because, under current law, health claims for these natural products is illegal. Should we tell you about these products, the FDA can come in, seize the products and charge the executives of the company with a crime that could land them in jail.

We will be telling you about a new bill to curb FDA censorship in the coming weeks to correct this absurdity, but right now we have a more urgent situation that involves the dangers of vaccines and other drugs that is about to become worse.

There is a bill before the US Senate right now called the Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005 (S.1873), that, if passed, would strip Americans of the right to a trial by jury if harmed by an experimental or licensed drug or vaccine that they are forced by government to take, whenever federal health officials declare a public health emergency.

We recommend that you do several things.

First, skim through our NewsWithViews.com colleague, Sherri Tenpenny’s several articles about the boloney factor regarding vaccines to refresh yourself on both the propaganda machine that promotes vaccines every year as well as the dangers of the vaccines themselves. [Read] Also see "Senate Bill 1873: Prescription for Tyranny"

Second, read the excerpt from Dr. Joseph Mercola’s article below for a brief overview on the dangers of this new bill. (See complete article at [Read]

Third, go to that National Vaccine Information Center for more details as well as instructions on what YOU can do about this extremely dangerous bill. www.909shot.com

Fourth, if you have time this weekend and can get to Minneapolis, come to our world health freedom conference. Details below. The festivities start at 1 p.m. Friday but if you can only come part of the time, come anyway. We’d love to see you.

Fifth, while the issues we are dealing with in this article are very serious, we also believe that laughter is the best medicine. So, aside from reading a funny book, having a joke-telling contest with your kids, or tickling your grand children, go to the link in Dr. Mercola’s article for a very funny commentary about the avian flu epidemic by Jon Stewart of the Daily Show.

Dr. Mercola’s overview of S. 1873.

The "Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005" (S. 1873), recently passed out of the U.S. Senate HELP Committee one day after it was introduced. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is calling the bill "a drug company stockholder's dream and a consumer's worst nightmare." This bill, spurred by bird flu fears, will broadly eliminate corporate liability for vaccines and drugs. This bill will soon go to the full Senate for a vote.

After reading the information below, please write to your own Senator and your own member of Congress in protest of this bill. Pass this alert to your family, friends, and other organizations you are involved with, and go to the NVIC website to take action right now.

The proposed legislation, nicknamed "Bioshield Two," is being pushed rapidly through Congress without time for voters to make their voices heard by their elected representatives. It will strip Americans of the right to a trial by jury if they are harmed by a drug or vaccine that they are forced by government to take, whenever federal health officials declare a public health emergency.

The bill establishes the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency (BARDA), as the single point of authority within the government for research and development of drugs and vaccines in response to bioterrorism and natural disease outbreaks. BARDA will operate in secret, exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, insuring that no evidence of injuries or deaths caused by drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" will become public.

This proposed legislation is an unconstitutional attempt by some in Congress to give a taxpayer-funded handout to pharmaceutical companies for drugs and vaccines the government can force all citizens to use, while absolving everyone connected from any responsibility for injuries and deaths which occur.
