We can’t say it often enough. If companies like General Mills, Kellogg’s, Pepsi, Coca-Cola and other giant multinational junk-food peddlers hadn’t dumped more than $20 million into the NO on 37 campaign, Prop 37, the California Right to Know GMO labeling initiative, would have passed.
If we want to pass GMO labeling laws in Washington, Vermont and other states, we’ve got to keep these Big Companies – and their Big Money – out of the fight. Our best shot at doing that is to send them a clear message: We won’t buy your organic and natural brands unless you keep your hands off, and your money out, of our GMO labeling campaigns.

Just listened to a sales pitch for Dr Russell Blaycock’s Wellness Report. He provides a lot of good data (much of it I have heard before from other sources) on how to avoid Alzheimer’s and dementia in his sales pitch. Here is some of the data:
According to Dr Russell Blaycock, inflammation and excitotoxicity are primary causes of brain degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
These things increase brain inflammation and toxicity:
Toxins in air and water
Artificial additives in foods
Omega 6 Fatty Acids
Vaccines like flu shots that contain mercury
What can you do?
Wash produce before consuming it
Parkinson’s and Alzhemer’s patients have low levels of Glutathione.
These things reduce the brain’s level of Glutathione:
MSG (under all its various names)
Elevated levels of homocysteine are also destructive.
Fluoride increases aluminium absorption.
Avoid soy, sunflower, safflower and peanut oils.
Ingesting omega 3s at least once a week reduces your risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease by 60&!
Cut back on sugars, destructive fats and simple carbs.
A high calorie diet rich in sugar and simple carbs results in an increased risk of 50%.
Adding high fat as well increases the risk by 250%!
Overexercising (aerobic) is harmful to the brain. It increases free-radical induced degeneration.
Research published in 2011 found that people who drank two or more diet sodas a day experienced waist size increases that were six times greater than those of people who didn’t drink diet soda

Estimates put the value of the data on a computer three months old as being of more value than the cost of the hardware. When next you need to replace your computer, get the vendor to put in two mirrored hard drives so if one fails all your data is on the other drive.
Next step is to get at least one, if not two, hard drives so you can copy the data from your computer to one of the drives then give it to a trusted person to store in an off site location. Put a password on the drive so that if the trust sours, your data doesn’t become public domain.

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Every time you start a sentence with “I am”, you are creating what you are and what you want to be.
