Get your Raw Almonds despite the FDA

        As you know all almonds grown in the US are now pasteurized. In addition to this, pasteurized almonds will still be labeled as raw in the marketplace, even though they are not. We own a raw food snack company and that obviously does not work for us. People have been concerned about where they are going to get truly raw almonds. We are now importing all of our almonds from Italy and Spain. They are all truly raw, unpasteurized and 100% organic. We are selling them in bulk for $8.65 per pound. That is $216.25 per 25 lb box and we pay shipping on any amounts. Plus, when the new crop comes in. we will offering a lower price. They are the old world Marcona/ Valencia Varieties, which are the closest thing to the original heirloom varieties of almonds. Nearly all US almonds trees are hybrids of these originals. Alot of people want to ban the pasteurized California almonds because so many small organic farmers are losing their business as a result of these laws.
Let us know if you are interested.

Expose the Bush Administration's Fuzzy Global Warming Solutions

On September 27 and 28, President Bush is hosting a meeting for the 15 most polluting countries to discuss global warming and continuing to promote his voluntary measures which just don't work.

The U.S. must get started reducing its global warming gas emissions, and the U.S. Congress has taken some steps in that direction. Both the House and the Senate have passed versions of an energy bill, but they need to finish the job and show the world that we are serious about doing our part about climate change. Along with an energy bill that includes fuel efficiency and renewable energy, Congress needs to put a mandatory limit on all the greenhouse gases we produce.

The FDA, under pressure from the powerful sugar and artificial sweetener lobby, has issued a warning letter to Celestial Seasonings for using a popular natural sweetener in some of its teas. The letter indicates the FDA classifies the herb stevia as "unsafe", even though it is a main staple sweetener in countries like China and Japan and has been used without negative health effects by indigenous people for at least 400 years. In the FDA's letter to Celestial Seasonings, the agency aggressively condemns the use of the herb, noting that "enforcement action may include seizure of violative products".

The FDA claims no evidence has been provided to the agency regarding the herb's safety, but federal records reveal the FDA has received over a thousand scientific studies regarding stevia, and all but one of them verify the safety of the herb. In sharp contrast, nearly half of the studies provided to the FDA regarding the artificial sweetener aspartame, previously owned by Monsanto, indicate serious health concerns, yet it is one of the most commonly used (and one of the most profitable) sweeteners in the U.S. The OCA has also verified the FDA has strengthened enforcement of stevia imports at the borders. Last week, the agency updated a document that mandates detainment of imported food products containing stevia.

Although it's common knowledge that industry, factory farms, government agencies (especially the military), and municipalities are polluting our drinking water supply, this awareness has led to a widespread phobia of tap water that is ironically exacerbating the water pollution problem. It takes five times as much water to make the plastic bottle than the amount of water the bottle actually holds.
Last year, Americans consumed 1.5 million barrels of oil to make disposable water bottles. That's enough to take 100,000 cars off the road and 1 billion pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. The average American adult spends nearly $200 each year on bottled water. And of course recent scientific studies indicate that hormone disrupting chemicals are steadily leaching out of those billions of non-recycled plastic water bottles that Coke and Pepsi are selling us, slowly and poisoning us. But how do you know if the water coming out of your home or workplace's faucet is actually okay to drink in the first place? Obviously, in some cases it's not, but here are some links to help you find out if your fear of your tap water is really justified:

1) Water suppliers are required to supply their customers with an annual consumer confidence report (drinking water quality report). The report you tells where your water comes from and what's in it. To get your local municipality's report, check here: http://www.epa.gov/safewater/dwinfo/
Advantages: The report is free and relatively thorough.
Disadvantages: Water suppliers aren't required by law to test for all types of contaminants.

2) The Watersafe Test Kit is an affordable tool that identifies harmful levels of eight different common contaminants in water: bacteria, lead, nitrates, nitrites, chlorine, pH, hardness and two common pesticides.
Advantages: It's only $20, and it's a home kit that you can use anytime and anywhere you like.
Disadvantages: Although the kit tests for the 8 most ubiquitous types of contaminants, there are other less common pollutants it does not assess. http://www.nextag.com/watersafe-test-kits/

3) NTlabs provides consumers with the most thorough laboratory analysis of drinking water we can find at such an affordable rate.
Advantages: The Watercheck includes a 75 item check for: bacteria, heavy metals, inorganic chemicals, trihalomethanes, 44 volatile organic chemicals, and 20 pesticides, herbicides and PCB's.
Disadvantage: The cost is $159, but you may actually save money if you find out you don't need to be investing in bottled water and filters http://www.ntllabs.com
