Oct 12 2003
As you can see below, I will be in Los Angles, California, Saturday, Oct 18 through Wednesday, Oct 22, speaking to EarthSave Inland Empire, Radio KLSP and others as I have been requested.
They have asked me to explain Algae, B12, etc.
We also have legal cases being claimed against Vegans and Natural Health Choice Families here in my community that have been hitting the National news! There are similar cases nationally! So I will also (as the crowd wishes) speak somewhat on the Medical misperceptions the State and Physicians have with Vegan nutrition (and B12). And I will address the legal, social and medical experiences of several Vegan /Natural Health Families in their battles with Doctors, Hospitals, State Agencies, Judiciary and adversarial neighbours, community or relatives -- and the States decisions -- or serious interference -- with how to feed, medically treat, educate and care for our own Vegan children.
More information and detail is coming on Vegan Family verses State Child Protective Services, the Medical Establishment and the Law. Click on this link: Family vs State (http://www.LifeSave.org/FamilyVsState.htm)
If you are aware of similar situations or cases or can help, please contact us. Email here.

I am sorry for not finding time to keep this schedule updated.
I have been gasping for breath as I try to take care of my own family, especially since my wife lost her work, and I still try to meet everyone else's needs without any help. I have spent all I have making sure the rest of our teaching and internet work stays available in spite of now being without gas heat and convenient hot water since March. That is the price we pay for giving away our time and not selling you some useless potions, paraphernalia, programs or costly publications. So I work to take care of my families needs -- while still trying to help you -- and it is not very easy.
I feel very frustrated because in these current months I was not able to afford to represent our community, you and our efforts at two world gatherings, with media and large public exposure of like minded scientists, educators, professionals, media and people of experience, and to help legitimize the truth for health and environmental wisdom to the people of the West, the Nation and the World.
I am further frustrated because I have not been able to even purchase both space at our county and state fairs, nor provide exposure via simple a simple but cute float in our major state parades though we were invited. Both parade and fair activities provide encouragement for healthy human change and environmental and animal protection wisdom for the thousands of mothers, fathers and youth as they see that we and thousands of intelligent others including their admired famous and wise are already benefited.
I know we need to be visible and accessible to the struggling moms as they try to find the truth for building healthier families. But I cannot do that any more without help! -- I have done it in the past and now ran my self worse than broke and now I cannot find means to do it and it pains me knowing that thousands will not see our blessing message at this year's state fair and other pubic exposures -- simply because I cannot afford their even most reasonable booth charges and invitation to participate.
I have been working
to provide data and help defend a family whose child was wrongly removed
from them for vegetarian lifestyle choices which had provoked adversarial
family member in collusion with ignorant medical and child welfare service
personnel. I just spent another unpaid day with state officials trying
to rectify this atrocity.
But I will try to share more of what I know with you if you contact me, even while I am working and trying to meet my own family's needs. I will travel reasonable distances and still give you my time as best I can. But a little help, even if it is just a tank of gas, some fresh juice and a vegan sandwich, would be appreciated in return.
I will try to upgrade and clean this page and my Calendar
in the next few days, but I need to take care of my home, utilities and
family first. My wife deserves better than what she right now has. She
has sacrificed so much out of her loving care for me and you.
We are Sponsoring Robert Cohen July 25-27 -- See Below!
May 18 2003
Working to get out of last years and this winter's burdens and make things decent for my wife and family. -- They have sacrificed much for this labor that benefits everyone else but them.
I have been going through my old business' tools and salvaged materials and cleaning everything up with the need to add resources into my labors for survival -- and to be able to continue helping others find healing wisdom here on this web effort and in my other teaching opportunities while at it!
I am also presently arranging facilities for my friend Robert Cohen: NotMilk.com who will be here and available in Salt Lake July 25-27 - Please Check Back!

Nearly all of the last 40 days have been consumed in Utah State Legislative wrangling over Fluoridation (CowsAgainstFluoride.org . KickEmInTheAcid.org)
(See panel under picture at Left)
Shock Treatment Restrictions (StopShock.org)
Initiative Processes and more (ByAThread.org)
-- and we still have a few more days of session before we can return to "Normal?" and try to take care of family obligations again! This unpaid watch over my Legislature ruins me more!
Don't forget my First Tuesday
Bountiful Library presentation:
Disinformation and powerful
money interests are working also in political circles to keep you ignorant,
shackled and sick for profit!
November through now (Jan 10 2003) I have been desperately trying to recover from my resource limited, yet heavily consuming last few months which included our Davis County and Utah State Fairs in my anti-fluoridation and health education efforts, followed by my booth setup in LA at WorldFest representing LDS Vegetarians and all my other issues to national and international visitors, all of which I was committed to early last year. And that was followed by being asked to help the anti-fluoridation education and linking of the Environmental Task Force while there -- which added five more weeks to a planned one week commitment. But we worked important wonders laboring hard there, drawing in and connecting important friends - while I lived impossibly frugal on less than $200 in that 5 weeks in my Plymouth Voyagers "low overhead" four-wheeled "office and motel"
But I have been fielding many phone calls and teaching many local individuals and local groups in between my domestic responsibilities work and this labor's resource recovery efforts.
If you need use of my experience or knowledge, or want me to help educate you, family or friends, I will do all humanly possible to give what I can!

"Little Sprouts" - Pregnancy and raising children on a Vegan Diet.
Please encourage and thank Brooke (and Stacey Nix Univ. of Utah Nutrition, who she referenced ) for her kindly positive efforts in courageously publishing this article! Her article helps correct seriously flawed public perceptions in truly healthy life choices, particularly for children. This information is in critical need, especially within our western meat focused economy with its over-advertised and misinformed, hence consequently unhealthy youth, families and communities - including many health professionals and educators.
Consider sharing your personal and your family's vegan health successes with Brooke (and Stacey) as well.
