ACTION ALERT — Stop Bad GMO Bill on Fast Track

Posted February 24, 2016
The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) has issued an Action Alert concerning a GMO labeling bill.   According to ANH, the plan appears to be to rush Senator Pat Roberts’ voluntary GMO labeling legislation through Congress before opposition can form.  The bill would preempt mandatory labeling efforts by the states and institute instead a voluntary labeling standard, a standard which Big Food can ignore. The alarming rate at which this bill is moving means we must act now to stop this attempt to thwart the will of a majority of voters to know what is in their food.  Read more from ANH and TAKE ACTION to write to your senators and urge them to vote NO on Sen. Roberts’ voluntary GMO labeling bill.  Please send your message immediately.   Note: By clicking on this link, you will be leaving Your Voice for Health’s website and accessing the Alliance for Natural Health’s website.

ACTION ALERT – Turn Up the Pressure on PBS

Posted February 24th, 2016
The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) has issued an Action Alert concerning PBS and the recent Frontline program on dietary supplements.  PBS’s ombudsman Michael Getler responded to criticism from natural health advocates on Frontline’s attack piece on the dietary supplement industry.  According to ANH, it was a disappointing response that continues to perpetuate the false notion that supplements are not regulated.  Read more from ANH and TAKE ACTION to tell Mr. Getler that his response is not factual—that the absence of context in the Frontline film is inexcusable, and does not even address the issue of the financial ties to Big Pharma of those who were interviewed.  Note: By clicking on this link, you will be leaving Your Voice for Health’s website and accessing the Alliance for Natural Health’s website.

Grass-Fed Label For Meat—Gone!

Posted January 25, 2016
Last week, the USDA announced it would be withdrawing its standard for the grass-fed meat label. The agency is giving producers who used the grass-fed label thirty days to (1) convert the current “grass-fed” standard, in which 99% of the animal’s feed must be from grass or forage, into their own private standard; (2) use some other “recognized grass-fed standard,” or else (3) develop a new, voluntary, grass-fed standard—whatever the company decides is fine with the USDA.  Read more.
