Believe in Santa?

The conflict concerning how to regulate natural products flows from a conflict in beliefs. Any reaction to the current Health Canada proposals should be based on an understanding that the real problem is the prevailing belief. That you do not have the right to make personal health decisions and that the State (through its bureaucracy Health Canada) has the sole right to decide what treatments and information is available to you. The real battle is to change the belief governing our health policy.

Health Canada’s proposals, belief and your health freedom on pages 3 to 6 of Shawn Buckley’s latest Discussion Paper.

15-year-old Climate Activist Calls Out World Leaders for Inaction

"You say you love your children above all else, yet you are stealing their futures right before their very eyes," – This 15-year-old activist just called out world leaders for their global inaction on climate change. #YEARSproject via U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Posted by The Years Project on Saturday, December 15, 2018

11 + million views. Not bad for a Swedish kid who developed her interest in climate change at nine years old, in the third grade. This video (2 minute watch) was picked up, without hesitation, by global media outlets. We share this post from A Years Project, a leading social media entity on climate change, “15-Year-Old Climate Activist Calls Out World Leaders for Inaction”. Greta Thunberg’s December 12, 2018 speech in Katowice, Poland at the UN Climate Change COP24 Conference offers a number of mic drops when addressing world leaders.

“You say you love your children above all else and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes.”

Pinterest Bans GreenMedInfo for Posting Natural Health & Vaccine Safety Info, GreenMedInfo

Facebook and false cures. Pinners and public safety. On Sunday, December 16, 2018 in this article (5 minute read) published on GreenMedInfo by Sayer Ji, “Pinterest Bans GreenMedInfo for Posting Natural Health & Vaccine Safety Info”. He writes, “We can only assume that because the “information war” is being lost on social media platforms, ideological debate and dissent is being completely banned instead of being allowed to proliferate in a democratic, open access fashion.” We couldn’t agree more with Ji, “Information is the currency of democracy. Limit its flow, including diametrically opposed views, and you have removed the condition for the possibility of an open, free, and democratic society.”

A New Drug Could Let us Eat Anything Without Gaining Weight, Vice

We dialed up our fact checking. In this December 5, 2018 article (3 minute read) on Vice, “A New Drug Could Let Us Eat Anything Without Gaining Weight” we are told about a gene that can be removed in mice allowing them to eat anything, without limits, and not gain weight. Lead molecular and cellular physiology researcher Professor Damien Keating of Flinders University in Australia says, “The ideal would be to take some sort of pill that didn’t require you to watch your diet, that didn’t require you to exercise.” Researchers are hopeful this will lead to a new drug that could target this pathway.

Shawn Buckley’s 2018 Whole Life Expo Talk

New video recording from Shawn Buckley’s Whole Life Expo talk (105 minute watch), in Toronto, as part of our ongoing work to educate public and industry. “If you’re going to be facing $5 million fines, not just for the company, but also every director and officer involved in that decision, who can withstand that?” Most natural health industry stakeholders do not realize that steep penalties currently in place for chemical pharmaceutical companies, $5 million per day, will also be applied to natural health product companies as part of the harmonization.

In this lecture you will learn about several changes proposed by Health Canada. Namely, forcing natural products to be regulated as chemical drugs. These changes will increasingly threaten everyone’s access to natural remedies of their choice and funnel the public into a more dangerous model, one of pharmaceuticals.

Dying From Cancer, This Man’s Case Has Stunning Repercussions in Canada, Canada’s National Observer

Health Canada’s processes for re-approval of glyphosate are exposed in this November 23, 2018 article (17 minute read) by Carl Meyer, “Dying From Cancer, This Man’s Case Has Stunning Repercussions in Canada” in Canada’s National Observer. The trust of a government department whose responsibility it is to make decisions for the nation’s health seems debatable. This piece challenges the due diligence of public scientists and their colleagues.

#GivingTuesday2018 Turn Up the Volume November 27

Amp up your #GivingTuesday2018 dollars! Tuesday, November 27 is an opportunity to help NHPPA turn up the volume on Canadian voices who protect the natural health industry and informed choice. This global day of giving harnesses social media after the hype of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to encourage giving back to causes that matter. Giving Tuesday is the soft-launch of our new Ban series T-shirt campaign with a goal of raising $10,000 to send Shawn Buckley to Ottawa.

Your voice will get amplified if Shawn can meet with the Standing Committee on Health. For decades he has called out Health Canada’s violation of citizen rights and health freedom by way of the proposed regulation of natural health products (NHPs). Shawn has the background, language and industry knowledge to speak to legislators and shine a light on the nonsensical proposed changes to NHP regulation. This is a critical step in our action plans, to ensure some of the most influential people in Parliament are on our side. Your donations support our mission, to help ensure that NHPs are not regulated as chemical drugs. Because protecting health freedom can’t wait.

Visit NHPPA’s #GivingTuesday Partner page, donate or buy a T-shirt to kick off the “Get Shawn Buckley to Ottawa” campaign. Being a natural health super hero just got easier!
