NewsTarget Insider Alert
Online reports / book announcements
Today, I’d like to introduce you to some highly-recommended information sources that I think you’ll appreciate. Like NewsTarget and Truth Publishing, these organizations are also using the power of Free Speech and the Internet to reach millions of readers, educating them about important issues like health, the environment and renewable energy.
Here are some of the top organizations (and sites) recommended:
Organic Consumers Association (OCA)
Led by Ronnie Cummings, the OCA monitors and reports on important issues impacting all things organic: Food and produce, cosmetics, personal care products, etc. He offers a daily roundup of related news from around the web, plus several key action campaigns that give you the opportunity to contact your representatives in Washington (if you’re an American citizen, anyway) and let your voice be heard.
Environmental Working Group
As the name reveals, this organization focuses on the environment, educating readers with articles about toxic chemicals in foods and consumer products, threats to the environment, and corruption between commercial interests and government regulators. The EWG has done outstanding work raising awareness about synthetic chemicals in cosmetics, foods and baby products, and their research and reporting on subjects like bisphenol-A (BPA) is second to none. See:
I urge all NewsTarget readers to support the EWG through readership and, if possible, donations. We will continue to help the EWG publicize their important research in future articles.
Commercial Alert (CA)
Founded in part by Ralph Nader, and currently headed by Gary Ruskin, Commercial Alert is fighting against the abusive, overreaching power of corporations and their desire to exploit the public in any way that generates higher profits.
With its “Stop Drug Ads” campaign (http://www.StopDrugAds.org), Commercial Alert is attempting to ban direct-to-consumer drug advertising — a move that would save countless lives of American consumers while halting Big Pharma’s blatant propaganda campaigns that push fictitious diseases and dangerous drugs to treat them.
Dedicated to exposing and countering corporate and government spin, PR Watch is a valuable source for honest information that you’ll never see printed in the corporate-controlled mainstream media. It’s headed in part by John Stauber, author of “Toxic Sludge is Good For You – Lies, Damn Lies and the Public Relations Industry.” That’s a book that explains just about everything being spun out of the food corporations, drug companies, artificial sweetener producers and chemical manufacturers today.
For those who enjoy a more technical read, there’s only one medical journal I know of that blatantly refuses to accept drug money from pharmaceutical companies: PLoS Medicine. This open-source, fiercely-independent medical journal consistently publishes honest, hard-hitting studies that expose the fraud of disease mongering, the false claims in drug ads and many other important issues. Check this journal from time to time (all articles are available at no charge), and you’ll see why I think this journal makes JAMA and the other “mainstream” medical journals obsolete.
Life Extension Foundation Legislative Action Center
No group has fought harder against FDA censorship and intimidation than the Life Extension Foundation. That’s why they’ve set up a Legislative Action Center (LAC) where you can contact your elected representatives on important issues like the Health Freedom Protection Act, a bill that would end the reign of medical McCarthyism at the FDA.
Be sure to visit this site and see what you can do to take action today. And you may wish to become a LEF customer (and member), too, where you can purchase top-quality supplements that I consider to be some of the best in the industry. My favorite product? Life Extension Mix Caps, a multivitamin that’s loaded with plant-based medicine.
Protecting your health freedom takes effort and resourcesWhy do I support and recommend all these organizations? Because we all need to work together if we’re going to overturn commercial exploitation at the expense of health, life and the environment. These groups all have one thing in common: They’re exposing the unscrupulous actions of Big Business corporations who would sacrifice anything (health, lives, the environment, honesty, ethics, you name it…) for a boost in next quarter’s profits.
That’s why I invite you to read these sites and, if they resonate with you, become a subscriber or even consider financially supporting their efforts. Remember: It’s all up to us. If the intelligent members of the online community don’t stand up and start challenging the pro-business, anti-consumer stance of corporations and government regulators, nobody’s going to do it.
So stay informed and stay active in the debate. Use your brain — and your voice — to be a participant, not a victim. And, of course, stay tuned in to NewsTarget for a daily dose of reality about foods, health, Big Pharma, the FDA and much more:
