Wolf Medicine

Please sign a petition to stop hunting endangered wolves.

I have been wanting to get to Wolf Haven International for a while, so when our niece turned two we took the kids on a trip to see the wolves. Wolf Haven is just South of Olympia in Washington State and takes in wolves that have been kept as pets. I had assumed that the wolves were eventually released back into the wild, but once a wolf has lived around humans they can’t survive in the wild. Wolves are wild at heart so once they get past a certain age they are unpredictable (which is why they can’t be kept as pets).

Defend Your Dietary Supplements

I am not a huge fan of expensive supplements when herbs and other helpful natural things are available, and this is probably all a big economic war between Big Pharma and the High-Cost Supplements Industries again, so I am not advising you to sign, unless you read it and really agree. I got ripped off joining EQUINOX in the late 90’s so I know about expensive supplements and there should be a way to avoid people selling total bulls–t, but if restrictions get placed on our ability to freely use herbs as a result of their battle (see my article on Codex Alimentarius) I will really not be impressed!

In any case it is just good to be aware of what is going on. Let me know what you think. I generally try not to get involved too much in all of the legal smoke and mirrors that goes on. The legal jargon in such things seems to mainly be used for covering up stuff and wasting time. But in the hopes that I am wrong, I have signed this letter!

The following is from the Citizens For Health website:

Introduced by Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Byron Dorgan (D-ND) on February 4th as the “Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010,” S. 3002 is designed, according to the bill preamble, to “more effectively regulate dietary supplements that may pose safety risks unknown to consumers.”
