I really enjoyed the daily pages. It made the experience more enjoyable and I felt we were not alone. It was like having a private coach. I don’t think reading a book would have felt so personal. I appreciated the recipes and graphics. We each lost about 8lbs! Cheers

Scientists Admit -- Sun Exposure Benefits Outweigh Risks

Moderate sun exposure offers more health benefits than risks, particularly for people who are deficient in vitamin D or who live in colder, northern latitudes, according to U.S. and Norwegian researchers.

The study found that vitamin D levels, which were calculated based on sun exposure, were linked to survival rates for cancer patients. Those who lived in sunnier, southern latitudes, and had higher vitamin D levels, were less likely to die from cancer than people in northern latitudes.

The researchers analyzed the amount of vitamin D generated by sun exposure at different latitudes, and cross-referenced it with data of cancer incidence and survival rates for people living in varying locations.

They found that people in northern latitudes produce significantly less vitamin D than people nearer to the equator. Specifically, they found Australians produce 3.4 times more vitamin D than people in the United States, and almost five times more vitamin D than Scandinavians.

Unlabeled Allergens in Food Threaten Children's Health

In the last issue of Organic Bytes, we highlighted Robyn O'Brien as the activist of the week. Robyn's organization, AllergyKids.com, is working with the OCA to close a loophole in U.S. food labeling regulations that is allowing common foods to contain dangerous new allergens without labeling.

Specifically, the U.S. Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act fails to highlight and require labels for the now commonplace foreign or "novel" gene-spliced proteins and allergens in soy, corn, canola and other food products.

Child eating pasta

According to Daniel Sheehan, an FDA scientist, American children are part of "a large, uncontrolled and basically unmonitored human infant experiment." Contact your Congress-members to require labels on gene-spliced foreign proteins and allergens in food products, which are contributing to the epidemic of food allergies, autism, ADHD and asthma in our children.

Major Network Told Not to Air Program Highlighting Vaccine Problems

The American Academy of Pediatrics is calling on the ABC television network to cancel the premiere episode of Eli Stone, in which a mother wins a $5.2 million lawsuit charging her son got autism from a vaccine.

The Academy claims airing the program may cause more people to question the safety of vaccinations. In related news, a recent poll in OCA's web forum found that 72% of the survey participants avoid all vaccinations, 11% avoid some vaccinations, 12% get all of their vaccinations, and 4% believe vaccinations should be required by law.
