• FDA: Regulate Arsenic in Food/Baby Food
    Darmouth College has released a study that shows there is a high content of arsenic in baby formula, cereal bars, and energy shots. This is even more significant due to the fact that the FDA doesn't regulate food products as they do water. This is one of many areas that is unregulated that clearly parallels other regulation.

  • Cardinal Dolan: Get your politics out of women's bedrooms.
    Cardinal Dolan demands that Catholic employers should not have to cover birth control in health care coverage they provide. The issue was settled for Catholics in June of 1967(1). It is not a moral concern for them. But, he and the Catholic Bishops of America neglect that their documents call for universal health care coverage. Where is their demand for that?

(Georgetown University), June 1967. - No. 2 : Vol. 28. - pp. 258-285.

  • Genetically Engineered Foods
    I am a diabetic and have been for many years. I am very careful of what I eat and the size of the portions that I eat. I am very worried about the genetically engineered foods being put on the market with no identification marking to say it is GE food! I spend $15.00 per week at the local food pantry where the food sold is grown locally.

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure's CEO and Board Must Resign
    Susan G. Komen for the Cure CEO & Founder, Nancy Brinker, and the rest of the nine-member board, have put the entire organization at risk through blantant partisanship, deceit, departure from the organization's mission, and abuse of the public's trust. The 120 affiliate chapters, the millions of men and women who have run in their races, and the people the organization serves deserve leadership they can trust to put politics aside and put healthcare first. The organization can not maintain its leadership position so long as Brinker and the current board remain in place. It is time for them all to resign and time for the public to demand it.

  • Cuomo Forces Brooklyn Residents to travel to Staten Island for Health Care!
    Governor Cuomo is closing the only long term psychiatric Hospital in Brooklyn and sending a little over half of the patients and families to Staten Island. The other 115 beds are being closed forcing the other patients to be kicked out and possibly will be on the trains and the streets of Brooklyn. Kingboro services patients with a long history of being severely and persistently mentally ill, as well as forensinc patients. The South Beach Psychiatric Hospital is over 21/2 hours a way. Not to speak on the 650 employees whom could be jobless as well! Please help! It is Brooklyn who will suffer! The Kingsboro property will be like a shelter instead! Spread the word they are doing it quietly! The streets of Brooklyn will suffer the loss of mental health care. You only have to watch the news to know not having this service in Brooklyn will effect the community adversely. There is an attack on Brooklyn's Mental Health Center and on Brooklyn residents with a long history of being severely and persistently mentally ill. Please support not closing Kingsboro Psychiatric Center and Down State Hospital/ Medical School.There is an attack on the mental health System. There is also a smear Campaign to justify steeling Brooklyn tax dollars and not providing the services to Brooklyn. It doesn't make sense for Brooklyn the biggest borough to send our Mentally ill families to Staten Island 2 1/2 hours away for treatment, they will quicker take to the streets!
