When the FDA and other government officials raid a peace-loving Amish farmer’s home with guns drawn because he’s providing healthy, nourishing raw milk directly to consumers, who does that Amish farmer call? Read more...

Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
The biotech industry keeps promising to solve major problems, from world hunger to malnutrition. Instead, they’ve given us herbicide-resistant and pesticide-producing crops, increasing Americans’ exposure to toxic chemicals. And guess what’s the latest genetically engineered crop that’s heading for your plate? Apples that never turn brown.
Like all genetically engineered crops, these new apples have not been proven safe for human consumption. Even worse, they use a troubling new genetic engineering technique, which has even greater potential side effects for the environment and human health. The genetically modified Read more...

We are so lucky in Houston! Local interest in nutrition and health is growing rapidly. Almost 200 Houstonians have already joined our Meetup group, Houston Real Food Nutrition, since it began about a year ago. The group has had food preparation demos and movie showings, in addition to presentation of the research of Dr. Weston A. Price, a pioneer in nutrition.
Brice and I started the Houston-Galveston chapter in 2010, when it seemed to us that few people had heard about Dr. Price’s ground-breaking publications on nutrition. Almost four years later, the needs and interests of Houston have grown so much we needed additional volunteers to reach more people and provide services to all parts of the city. Read more...
A colleague my husband met on a business trip inadvertently set us on the path to finding true health. My husband and I were both quite athletic growing up, and the extent of our knowledge of eating healthy consisted of the low-fat, low-carb, calories in-calories out mantra. Eat a little, work out a lot. When we moved to Houston to work at a start-up alternative energy investments group, we had lots of stress and little time to plan meals or work out. It took a large toll on our bodies and we did diet after diet trying to get back to feeling healthy and whole. Read more...
Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
The FDA’s proposed food safety regulations pose significant problems for sustainable farmers, food producers, and food hubs across the country.
Under the proposed regulations, many farmers will be forced to comply with high-cost, industrial-scale regulations, and they will be unable to use traditional, sustainable growing practices. Food hubs and local food businesses will be forced to deal with costly and burdensome paperwork. Ultimately, consumers will face increased food prices and reduced availability of locally and sustainably produced foods. Read more...
