NaturalNews Issues Global Boycott On The Following Brands 6 y
"Natural brands betray consumers over GMO labeling: NaturalNews issues boycott of Kashi, Silk, Larabar and more". Chef Jem says you can probably add Morton Salt to this list.
• Kashi (owned by Kellogg, which has contributed $612,000 to defeat Proposition 37) - Kashi cereals contain GMOs!

Obesity 6 y
"...obesity is 'today's' disease. It's hot, and it dominates the news when it comes to stories about health."+ How the Government Makes You Fat: Gary Taubes on Obesity, Carbs and Bad Science
The subject matter of obesity is certainly one that deserves attention.
There are a couple things that I believe need to be clearly addressed here. First is ”Nutrient-Density”. Nutrient-density has what is needed for people to experience satiation which allows the body to feel satisfied and that allows people to stop eating. The nutrient-poor ”foods of commerce” are missing a lot of what the body needs to experience true satiation and that naturally sets people up for over-eating. ”Nutrient-Density” is very well documented by Dr. Weston A. Price in his landmark book: Nutrition and Physi ... read more
Who Needs The Brain (Food) Police? 6 y
"California Food Police Now Targeting Residents"
”... Pasteurization ’... was originally conceived as a way of preventing wine and beer from souring’.:
The process developed out of a commercial need to save a certain grower’s crop and not at all for public health reasons. This commercial impulse is the actual reason for pasteurization of milk. Pasteurized milk is a food of commerce.
The first ’health safeguard’ is not pasteurization! It is actually the natural immune system that is in the milk itself. That inherent immunity comes directly from the health of the animal.

More Support For Objectivity Regrading Bacteria & Virus 6 y
Another source (in addition to Aajonus Vonderplanitz - We Want To Live) speaks of the intelligent functions of bacteria and viruses in the human body.
”Contrary to viewing bacteria, virus and algae as a threat, the millions of varieties of these structures represent the base ”intelligence”, that we sometimes call ”Mother Nature”, exuding far greater influence on the health of the planet than we may have ever considered before. As members of this universe, our very lives depend and are shaped by the influence of local collectives of mono cellular cultures - the base of ecosystems. When we attack, it attacks to counterbalance. When conditions move to extreme het or col, the mono cellular universe re-asserts itself at our cost.”:

Legalizing Food Rights - an Insanity That Needs Healing Now! 6 y
America is suffering from several unexpected shock conflicts that now is manifesting as "disease" and so far we have only been considering the symptoms appearing as a loss of certain freedoms including food freedom.
Just posted the following at: ”Raw Milk: The Whole Truth”:

Legal Food Rights Is An Oxymoron!
Common Law Rights and remedies vs. legal snares.

”If one does not have food Rights then the courts are the last place to be pursuing them!

The Truth About Food, Industrial Contamination & Liberty! 6 y
The most passionate dedication of Aajonus Vonderplanitz (and others) for securing our Rights to healthy foods.
”Unfortunately for everyone, our liberties have narrowed to a frighteningly dangerous state. Industrial giants like banks, agriculture, pharma, oil and government are out of control. Some people who speak out against them are threatened and/or harmed.
Several of my clients have asked me to be more careful, to not speak the truth of food, industrial contamination of everything, and liberty. I just cannot sit back and keep my mouth shut or stop my pen.
It boggles my mind that people can accept, sit and watch injustice and assaults as if they were just unreal TV soap opera. I will die f ... read more

How Scientific Are Orthodox Cancer Treatments?
By Walter Last
The medical profession takes much pride in the rigorous scientific research that underpins its approach to cancer treatment. Someone newly diagnosed with cancer faces enormous pressure from our health care system to start immediately on a scientific medical treatment program that involves surgery, chemotherapy and radiation in various combinations. Being fearful and in shock, most ... read more

"... Healthcare Reform ... In Your Kitchen, Not Washington" 6 y
Chef Jem comments on the belief that cooked food shortens life.
The whole quote is: ”True healthcare reform starts in your kitchen, not in Washington” ~ Anonymous:
A guy comments at a Facebook post by Mike Adams (the Health ranger):
”Well Mike yes and no. Cooked food shortens life. I believe less cooking longer life.”
I commented right following that comment and said:
”The Kitchen is ’all inclusive’ of whatever food preparation may take place in it and traditionally it included a ’hearth’.
Bone broth is a food-as-medicine (one of many examples) whereby heat is required to extract the nutrients.

Seize this day!
Today is the Mayan day of ”Eagle”. ”It is liberty, the messenger, treasure, luck, and money. It also means fortune. It is a special day on which to dedicate the Xukulem Chuwach Ri Qajaw - Mayan ceremony to ask for good luck. This sign brings good relationships. It is a special day for increasing intuition and vision. The energy of this sign breaks with the status quo and can find a solution to anything. Tz’ikin (Kaqchikel /Yucatec Men) brings broad vision, unlimited by time or space. It is the panoramic, acute vision of the eagle.”:

Weston A. Price & The Insight of Rudolf Steiner 6 y
Chef Jem "Likes" the Facebook page for a local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation
Weston A. Price was probably the very first individual to verify the extraordinary insight of Rudolf Steiner in regards to the relationship between nutrition and soul development. That is why I say ”the way to conquer a nation is to feed it modern foods”. In other words, our freedom as well as our loss of freedom is directly connected with what we feed ourselves. I elaborate on this in my blogs including:
(October 10th, 2014) ”Dr. Price noted that the bone structure of the South Sea Islanders was the most perfect of any of the 14 isolated t ... read more

”... the more traditionally correct science is enlightening: It shows that we have dramatically lowered our metabolism as a nation by eating mostly corn, soy and wheat. Put simply, we are no longer burning our food efficiently. For many people, this equates to weight gain, but for many others it also means fatigue, emotional ups and downs, poor memory, attention deficit disorder, constipation, bloating, water retention, insomnia and much more....”

"California Voters to Decide on GMO Labeling" and beyond!
The ”Right to know” is certainly ”our fundamental right”!
Just in case anyone doesn’t already know the consequences of not being fully informed on GMOs:
There is a campaign (or so) to dissolve ”corporate person-hood”. Corporate person-hood is a status that corporations usurped for themselves. Since that usurpation corporations have been threatening the public peace, the health of nations and virtually all of life. Without corporate person-hood there can not be a Monsanto ... read more
From Very S.A.D. To "Happily Ever After"! 6 y
Testimonial of Tim Boyd with the Weston A. Price Foundation
Previous Page, Page 12
I grew up on wonder bread, margarine, jelly, and sugary boxed cereals with pasteurized milk. It is probably a minor miracle that my health was not a complete train wreck from the beginning. Through my 20’s the sugary boxed cereals continued and there was more pasteurized milk enhanced with Nestle’s Quick. Healthy eating was for suc***s. Until age 30, give or take, I had no significant health problems.
Starting in my early thirties I was still in fairly good shape but started to notice minor hip pain. When it continued to nag I realized it was not sore muscles but the joints themselves. ... read more
