Press Release from the Weston A. Price Foundation:
EXPERTS DENOUNCE HIGH-SOY DIET OF ILLINOIS PRISONERS
Too Much Soy Causes Serious Health Problems, Plaintiffs Claim
Washington, DC (June 25, 2012)–GlobeNewswire— Plaintiffs in the lawsuit Harris et al. v. Brown, et al., Case No. 3:07-cv-03225 have submitted testimony of four qualified experts confirming the claim that large amounts of soy in the prison diet can cause serious health problems. In 2004, the state of Illinois began using large amounts of soy in prison menus to save money and use less meat.
FundRAISER Appeal Letter
By Sally Fallon Morell | June 8, 2012
We are now approaching the fifth anniversary of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) and I couldn’t be prouder of the work this organization has done. I believe there is no more important organization to safeguard real foods from the perils of modern day thinking (bigger is better), trumped up food safety concerns and government penchant for…more

Buffalo, New York
September 15-16, 2012
Details and registration: Click here
Sally Fallon Morell, MA, author of Nourishing Traditions and president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, will be speaking.
This is a one-time opportunity to hear Sally in Buffalo. Sally is giving new talks and her standard, interesting talk on traditional diets – this is a great opportunity to invite friends and family to learn about this topic.
An Announcement from the Weston A. Price Foundation:
Thank you for your patience with the high volume of email alerts in the last couple of weeks! It’s been a very busy time, and it’s likely to stay busy for a while longer as the Farm Bill and Agricultural Appropriations Bill move forward.
Your calls do make a difference. Even if we lose a vote on an issue, each legislator we influence is one step closer to winning next time. The problems with our food system have developed over several decades, and it will take time and a lot of hard work to make real change. Thank you for being part of this important work.

Animal fats, properly prepared whole grains, enzyme-enriched foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, explains why you need these foods too. Beginning with a presentation of Dr. Weston Price’s unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Sally explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets that conferred beauty, strength and complete freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Then she presents a step-by-step plan to put nourishing traditional foods–foods that your family will actually eat–back into your diet, including easy breakfast cereals, soups, snack foods, high enzyme condiments and soft drinks that are actually good for you!

A few words from Sally Fallon Morell…
We are now approaching the fifth anniversary of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and I couldn’t be prouder of the work this organization has done. I believe there is no more important organization to safeguard real foods from the perils of modern day thinking (bigger is better), trumped up food safety concerns and government penchant for overregulation at the expense of the precious small farmer.
Action alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation:
[Update on amendment #2310: the US Senate voted against labeling GMOs.]
The Senate is moving ahead with voting on Farm Bill amendments. Out of the more than 300 amendments that were filed, only a quarter of them will actually be voted on, so the process will move fast.
The Tester Breeds & Seeds and the Paul Raw Milk amendments did NOT make the list of amendments to be voted on, unfortunately. The Feinstein Egg bill also did not make the list, though, which is good news.
Call again to protect family farmers, ranchers, and poultry owners from burdensome new Animal ID regulation!
Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:
Please keep up the calls to your Representative to stop the looming animal ID rule! The Appropriations Committee is expected to take up the Agricultural Appropriations bill this Tuesday, June 19, so there’s no time to waste.
We know that you get many emails, and we try not to overload you with alerts. With the Farm Bill being debated and the Animal ID regulation close to being issued, though, it’s a very busy time. We appreciate your patience with the multiple emails and, even more, your support of our farmers through your calls!
Announcement from the Weston A. Price Foundation:
