For Once, a Chance to Be Proactive
Giant pharmaceutical and agribusiness companies have powerful and very well financed lobbies. They spend a lot of money to suppress the rights of citizens to criticize them, and to use products they fear might compete with their own.
The Alliance for Natural Health spotlights this often outrageous interference with our freedom to learn about and be protected from foods and products that may be bad for us, and to learn about and use ones that might be better. ANH follows news of both positive and negative developments, and sends out action alerts, letting people participate quickly and effectively in events that could seriously effect their health.
The link above leads to an ANH alert on some exciting pending legislation. It's a heads up on something that's going to happen - but it also presents an opportunity to be proactive, and build the momentum the law will need. Here's one way to participate :
Explore the link above, and learn about the pending legislation - it's a pretty quick read. Then subscribe to the ANH Pulse of Natural Health newsletter, to be on their mailing list. When the bill comes up for consideration, you'll hear about it immediately, and be able to use ANH's straightforward procedure to add your voice in support.
To amplify your efforts, also send a link to this blog post (cut and paste : http://livingwaterswellness.weebly.com/lww-blog.html ) to your friends, and ask them to support the legislation too. Given the massive power and money big corporations bring to bear these days, this kind of timely, creative public response to an issue may be the best remedy we have !
In the meantime, I encourage you to also look at the ANH homepage, and see what they do. Write them a letter, join the organization, send them a donation if you can. They do a great public service, and I feel they truly deserve your support.

It's a new website, and a work in progress - but by all means, have a look around !
