Canada Food Guide: New & Improved

The Best Food Guide so far... I am so pleased with the new Canada Food Guide! Congratulations to all Canadians who participated in the surveys that were provided! These surveys collected the feedback used to create a much more accurate example of what healthy eating should be. It is REALLY encouraging to see that so many people are realizing the importance of increasing their plant-based diets! No mention of Organic & Non-GMO plants in Canada Food Guide Now, we need the government to take steps to improve the quality of those plants. Only pesticide-free, organic plants are truly healthy to eat. In other words, GMO plants (plants genetically implanted with genes that make them resistant to herbicides & pesticides) AND the use of these poisons on [...]

Canada’s Food Guide

Phase 2 of Health Canada's project to update the Canada Food Guide has begun.  Did you even know there was a Phase 1 last fall?  I remember filling that one out and only know about this one because of a health-related newsletter I get in my inbox.  Only 20,000 Canadians participated in the last survey.  How many people live in Canada?  No doubt the lack of participation is the same thing that plagues any issue that requires voting (like government elections) and that's apathy; an unfortunate side-effect of democracy.  But I suspect another reason for lack of input from Canadians here is simply lack of communication.  I don't think most people were even aware that this is taking place.  Important projects like this that can [...]

Health Care or Disease Management?

Join the Food Revolution! To reiterate what John Robbins & Ocean Robbins already stated on "The Food Revolution Network" website, our society now revolves around disease management, not Health Care.  But we can change that! There's a steady shift that is slowly but surely taking place in our world today. All you have to do is take over the driver's seat of your two-legged vehicle! On your own, you can maintain or reclaim your health which will provide you with quality of life. And collectively, choosing healthy foods over drugs will create the changes that need to take place on a global scale. We can create our own health care!  Don't be discouraged because you have NOTHING to lose except your health! Who do You [...]

NHP Week: Nov. 7 – 13, 2016

This week is dedicated to celebrate the Natural Health Products that help keep millions of Canadian healthy without the harmful side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs.  As such, NHP sales cut into Big Pharma's profits.  Unbeknownst to most of us, we are only now finding out about a list of sneaky and detrimental changes being proposed by Health Canada as a result of lobbying by large pharmaceutical companies. Health Canada is Big Pharma's puppet to keep Canadians dependent on drugs.  If it ain't broke... our government should be expanding our access to natural products and encouraging its population to use natural, plant-based healing products to maintain and reclaim health.  Instead, they want to do the exact opposite after conducting a single, obscure consumer survey I never heard [...]
