International Raw Milk Symposium 2015 to be held at Wise Traditions Conference in Anaheim
Raw Milk Advocates Focus on Health Benefits and Safety Practices

Washington, DC –October 26, 2015– As more Americans seek to make their lives greener, the demand for farm fresh, unprocessed and unpackaged foods is growing. Raw milk advocates will discuss health benefits and safety practices at the International Raw Milk Symposium in Anaheim, California, on Monday, November 16. Watch the event live stream, which will be available at http://www.fleetwoodonsite.com/wise/rawmilk

Consumption of raw milk is increasing by 25 percent every year, according to the Weston A. Price Foundation, as consumers discover the superior taste and digestibility of the unprocessed product. Raw milk is becoming more available as a number of states liberalize laws regulating raw milk sales. Raw milk is available for retail sales in ten states, and at the farm through cow-share agreements or as pet food, in another thirty.

The Raw Milk Symposium will take place on the last day of the International Wise Traditions Conference, a widely attended annual nutrition education conference that educates the public on the benefits of wholesome, traditional foods. The Raw Milk Symposium will feature dynamic lectures focusing on the health benefits and safety of raw milk. Headline speakers include:

Mark McAfee: “Behind the Scenes: What’s Really Happening with Raw Milk in the USA?” (November 16, 10:45am-12:00pm PT)
Mark McAfee is the CEO and founder of Organic Pastures Dairy Company, which produces grass-fed organic raw milk for California consumers and now delivers to more than 650 retail stores. He will give the inside scoop on what is really happening behind the closed doors for raw milk across the nation.

Sally Fallon Morell: “Why Raw Milk?” (November 16, 9:15-10:30am PT)
Sally Fallon Morell is the founding president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and founder of A Campaign for Real Milk. She will review 100 years of fresh milk research, which reveals how this vital food benefits our bones, teeth, immune system, respiratory health, reproduction, growth, detoxification and even mental health.

Peg Coleman: “Risk Beyond Numbers: Understanding Data, Gaps and Assumptions Bridging Them” (November 16, 1:15-2:30pm PT)
Peg Coleman is a senior medical microbiologist and risk analyst who will walk the audience through an exercise in risk assessment for consumers of certified raw milk and pasteurized milk.

Charlotte Smith: “Building, managing, marketing & sustaining a raw milk micro-dairy” (2:45-4:00pm PT)
Charlotte Smith’s Champoeg Creamery in Oregon is one of the first in the nation to be a Raw Milk Institute-listed farm, which signifies her stellar safety practices as a raw milk producer.

The Raw Milk Symposium will be live-streamed. Health officials, agriculture officials and FDA officials are invited and encouraged to watch the live-stream, which will be available at http://www.fleetwoodonsite.com/wise/rawmilk

Take Back Your Health Conference

Oct. 3-4, 2015
At age 21, Robin Shirley had no other choice but to drop out of school at Virginia Tech, unable to complete the course requirements due to her disabling symptoms of Chronic Lyme Disease and Autoimmune Rheumatoid Arthritis.
She decided she was willing to do anything she could in order to alleviate symptoms and get her life back, so she enrolled in the online school, Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
“Eating differently had the most profound effect on my body than anything else I tried. I experienced what food could do to my physical and emotional symptoms, and there was no turning back,” says Robin.
Two years later, she launched the Take Back Your Health Conference for the Washington, D.C community. “I wanted everyone in my life to learn from the same teachers that had taught me how to eat in a way that had the power to alleviate chronic pain and depression.
“This is why I host the Take Back Your Health Conference. It’s for families who are dealing with life-altering chronic illness and still have hopes that they can live out the life they dreamed of. Living healthier can be the most fun and rewarding experience you’ve ever had, and that’s what we strive to provide at every TBYH Conference,” Robin explains.

New Smartphone App Reduces Emergency Response Time




San Jose, CA--Peacekeeper, a community-based emergency response Smartphone app, cuts emergency response times by relying on nearby neighbors. When a user is in an emergency, the app notifies neighbors, friends and family and gives them the chance to be first responders. The system enables individuals to easily send, receive, and respond to emergency alerts. The design of the app gives users the ability to get the help they need when seconds count the most.
In an emergency, response time is critical. By relying on neighbors across the street rather than police across town, Peacekeeper can dramatically reduce the wait time for help to arrive.

The four types of Peacekeeper alerts are Medical, Fire, Intruder and Abduction. Alerts contain detailed information about the emergency so that the recipients know where to find the person and what to expect when they arrive. Responders and victims can communicate in real-time via the built-in chat feature.

“The Peacekeeper app is designed to change how people think and feel about emergency response by building tools, relationships and training that empower individuals to take action within their own communities,” says Cody Drummond, the app’s founder. “This has the potential to dramatically reduce assault, improve security and improve safety in neighborhoods around the world.”

For medical emergencies, responders can provide users with the support they need during a crisis or serve as an intermediary until professional help arrives. For instance, if a child falls unconscious, a family member can quickly send a medical alert to the people in their private emergency response group. Neighbors who know CPR or have medical training arrive within seconds and save a life.

“We hope an emergency never happens, but if it does, Peacekeeper alerts the important people who are motivated and ready to respond with one touch of a button,” explains Drummond.

Peacekeeper users have two layers of protection: their Emergency Response Group (ERG) and their Alliance. ERG’s consist of the neighbors that you choose to be in your network. Alliances are designated family and friends who may be geographically further away, yet, are likely to act quickly in an emergency.

Thanks to a successful beta test period, the app now has users in all 50 United States and over 20 foreign countries.

The Peacekeeper app is built to call responders to your home. As the network grows and users begin to establish trusted reputations, Peacekeeper plans to implement features that allow users to send alerts from any location for emergency response wherever they go.

The app is available in Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play for Free!

Peacekeeper is dedicated to building and implementing systems and tools that will bring peace and security to neighborhoods around the world. Visit them on the web at Peacekeeper.org.

Why Butter is Better: Nutrition Conference Focuses on Healthy Fats, Traditional Foods
International Wise Traditions 2014 to be held in Indianapolis

Scientists and educators will explore the health benefits of traditional fats like butter and coconut oil at Wise Traditions 2014, the 15th annual conference of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF).

The health and nutrition conference is coming to Indianapolis on November 7-9, 2014. “Focus on Food” is the weekend’s theme and the event offers good news for those who are ready to turn away from low-fat and other fad diets and return to the wholesome and nutritious foods of our ancestors.
“The anti-saturated fat agenda is crumbling,” says Sally Fallon Morell, President of WAPF. “This conference will highlight the science that supports the need for traditional fats in the diet, for everything from hormone production to weight loss to protection against cancer and heart disease.”

The Weston A. Price Foundation, is a non-profit education foundation focused on promoting traditional foods rich in essential nutrients. The conference is open to the public and is widely attended by health-conscious families as well as farmers, chefs, journalists and health professionals from throughout the world.
During the weekend, attendees will have a chance to participate in life-changing lectures, cooking demonstrations and exhibits showcasing local foods, nutritional supplements and holistic therapies. Seminars will discuss traditional fats and food preparation techniques, vegetarian vs. omnivorous diets, testing for nutritional deficiencies, holistic health, non-toxic farming, exercise and basic cooking techniques.

For those who want an in-depth look at the nutrition research of Dr. Weston A. Price, participants can attend Friday’s full day seminar on traditional diets by Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Dr. Weston A. Price, an early 20th-century pioneer in nutrition research, discovered the vital importance of animal fat to human health.

The rest of the weekend is packed with presentations led by engaging speakers including: Dr. Stefanie Seneff, an MIT research scientist who asks whether pesticides, antibiotics, vaccines and pharmaceuticals are the cause of our current health crisis; Lierre Keith, the author of The Vegetarian Myth who argues that saving the planet cannot be achieved by refusing to eat animals; and Dr. Kaayla Daniel, an entertaining nutritionist who examines how traditional bone broth contributes to physical and emotional health.

Full and one-day registrations are available; the registration fee includes admission to the lectures and exhibit hall. In addition, attendees can purchase tickets to breakfast fundraisers held each morning for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. Proceeds go to support legal efforts on behalf of family farms and artisan food producers subject to unlawful government interference in the sale of farm foods. Attendees staying through Monday, November 10, can buy additional tickets to bonus activities including a farm tour, cooking demonstrations, a raw milk symposium and more.
