The Good Doctors

If you are confused about the number of people touting the latest 'foodie words' and then creating their own "miracle diet," I have gathered a short list of credible doctors... plus one. A man who started a nutrition and food revolution long before many others. Most of these people are science or research based. Many are nationally recognized doctors that are known for their commitment to superior health through plant based nutrition and lifestyle. There may be differences between them and therefore you can then chose what information feels right for you. Each has websites or blogs that are of great service to the general public. I am sure you can find at least one doctor with whom you can relate to, as your guide through the food world. Personally I like to learn from everyone on this list.

Keep A Lookout For NAIS - WTO (World Trade Organization) wants to get rid of the small farmers and ranchers, so Big Ag can rule the worlds food. This is under the guise of protecting us from food terrorism (false flag terrorism used to get their control laws passed, as used in many other situations). They insist every animal must be chipped to know it's location. The cost would be too much for the small farmers, as well as small organic and pasture operations, and put them out of business. Big Ag would not have to follow the same rules. For example: all free range chickens on a pasture farm would need a chip in each chicken on the small farm, while a big factory farm that housed 1500 chickens in one tight building would only need one chip per chicken house. They would raid on the small farmers if just one bird went unaccounted for, which could result in fines and arrests. It has not passed yet, but they continue to rewrite the bill to get it back into the system.We must be vigilant and protect our clean food sources and never let NAIS pass. The powers that be, have been found to be responsible for outbreaks of disease in the past. Remember Mad Cow disease? They just happen to let some 'germs' out of the lab when they need something 'to point to' in order to gain control. Would they really do that? Oh they have...Learn More  here  No NAIS here The Truth About The Animal ID Program
