Links to important information regarding organic, sustainable food production, health related topics and actions you can take to support these efforts are listed below. I believe that we make a very strong message when we 'vote with our dollars'. That is the power we as individuals have in this country, our power as consumers is much greater than we may think at times. There is something that you and I can do. I hope you will join me and get involved.
Find a CSA (community supported agriculture), or box produce delivery in your area here. Get informed and active about all issues relating to organic farming and issues related to the environment. One of the best sites I've found for a broad range of issues.

The grassroots network of actions to take from the Center for Food Safety. Focused on genetically engineered food actions. Did you know that the EU has completely banned all GMO products and their usage? Major corporations do not use GMO products to sell their products in Europe, but DO use them for sale in the US, all because our government (the FDA and EPA), have allowed this without any testing on them at all. Please learn about this issue today and what you can do.
This is an excellent documentary from Deborah Koons-Garcia with information about GMO farming and what you can do about this issue. GMO cross-contamination into other crops, for example, organic crops, is a serious threat to our right to non-GMO, and healthful produce.

Check it out.

Why should you buy locally? How many miles does your food travel to get to your table?
Please visit this web site to find out the ugly truth about fluoride in our water supply.
Did you know that fluoride was used previously by the medical profession for hyperthyroidism to slow thyroid function? Could it be why we see such a huge number of people becoming hypothyroid today? At the very least, fluoridation of the water supply is mass medication without consent. Find out more at the link above. Sign the petition, take action.
Union of Concerned Scientists web site with lots of information. For ‘Green tips’ see this link:http://www.ucsusa.org/publications/greentips/
