It is time we put a stop to the corporate manipulation of our food and agriculture policies and farming practices and take back our food! This Saturday, October 29, 2011 from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM in New York City, Occupy Against Big Food will be held in Zucotti Park. The organized event will include food policy leaders such as Marion Nestle, PhD and Anna Lappe, MA. According to Nestle, "The food movement's goal is to make the food system healthier for people and the planet. That goal is entirely consistent with the goals of everyone in the Occupy Wall Street movement." Concerns that corporations have profited from poisoning our food supply, monopolizing farming practices and torturing animals are all clearly outlined in the first official statement released by Occupy Wall St.

Over the past several decades, our food has changed more than any other time in history. Large corporate agriculture businesses have crushed traditional family farms into near extinction with the help of our government that has been heavily influenced by Big Food industry lobbyists.

Our government's agriculture and food policies, legislation and regulations have (Read Full Article)

Despite Severe Drought Some Farmers Still Have Products to Sell But No Place

Posted: Sat, Aug 20, 2011
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

As Texas experiences one of the most costly droughts in more than a century, farmers across the state have been hit with record losses as pasture land has burned up under exceptional drought conditions. Texas farmers have been forced to quickly sell their cattle to feedlots, vegetable crops have dried up in the fields and many farmers markets have closed leaving some farmers with no place to sell their products.

The drought has greatly affected many of the East Texas farmers who also participate in the Historic Longview Farmers Market. Many went to great lengths to grow larger crops, produce more products and buy more chickens in order to participate in the market this year. The Historic Longview Farmers Market has had to temporarily close due to the drought but plans to reopen in the fall pending a break from the extreme weather conditions. The market's closure has left some of the vendors, who do not grow vegetables, without an avenue to sell their products.

New Autism Research Indicates Environmental Factors as Cause

Posted: Tue, Aug 2, 2011
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

New scientific research found that environmental factors increase children's susceptibility to developing autism more than genetics.

The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Institute for Human Genetics and Stanford University teamed together to lead one of the largest genetic research studies conducted to date on sets of twins to uncover genetic components of autism. Additional research was contributed by Kaiser Permanente, University of California Davis, the Autism Genetic Research Exchange and the California Department of Health.

The research study, which was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and by Autism Speaks, found that environmental factors represented more than half of a child's susceptibility for developing autism. In the most severe cases of autism, environmental factors represented 55% and even higher at 58% as a cause of broad spectrum disorders. Genetics represented (Read Full Article)

The World's First Breastfeeding Baby Doll Comes to the US

Posted: Mon, Aug 1, 2011
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

I received an email today from my younger brother who wrote to say that my four-year-old niece is so completely fascinated by her new baby brother that she is even trying to breastfeed her monkey. I then realized that there is a need for The Breast Milk Baby.

Parents are the primary role models for their children. Their behavior is monitored ever so closely by their kids who often at a young age will confess that they want to grow up to be just like their mommy or daddy. Pretending to be parents is part of play that eventually leads to adult behavior so it is only natural for a child who views her mother breastfeeding a younger sibling to try to emulate breastfeeding.

The Breast Milk Baby is a new doll that comes with a halter for the child to wear that has two flowers on it to represent breasts. When the doll is placed near the flowers, (Read Full Article)

Posted: Sun, Jul 24, 2011
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

A new kind of milk truck is coming to Pittsburgh, PA. to help rescue breastfeeding women and to enable babies to eat anywhere at anytime.

In the state of Pennsylvania, as well as the majority of states within the US, there are breastfeeding laws that specifically allow mothers to breastfeed their babies in any public or private location, yet many women are still being discouraged and often are given a hard time.

According to Jill Miller, artist and faculty member in the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA., despite the breastfeeding laws, women who are breastfeeding in public are being harassed and asked to leave or to go to the bathroom to feed their baby. Ms. Miller said, "My team and I have a simple belief that hungry babies should be able to eat anywhere at anytime." This is why she created The Milk Truck.

The Milk Truck will be part of the 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial at the Andy Warhol Museum from September 26 - December 10. During this time frame, the truck will be a (Read Full Article)
