Making sense of the use of glyphosate in our food supply is not an easy task. The prevalence of man-made chemicals in our food, water, cosmetic, and household products is widespread and insidious.

AVFCA COVID-19 Waste

“Even if you never have the chance to see or touch the ocean, the ocean touches you with every breath you take, every drop of water you drink, every bite you consume. Everyone, everywhere is inextricably connected to and utterly dependent upon the existence of the sea.”    ~Dr. Sylvia Earle, American marine biologist, oceanographer, and research scientist   By Liz Quinn   As COVID-19 moves from pandemic to endemic status, the environmental toll it Read More »

Posted in Salt on February 16, 2023

AVFCA Salt

Do you need to break-up with salt, or can this tongue-tantalizing substance be a “friend with benefits?” Does “everything in moderation” include these white granules, with its red flag warnings about hypertension and heart attacks? It turns out quantity matters, and of equal importance are type and quality. Perhaps with a few simple tweaks, your long-term love affair can continue.   By Carter Trent   Salt has received a bad rap for contributing to health Read More »

AVFCA Food Preservation

“This magical, marvelous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy.

Posted in Masking Children on February 2, 2023

AVFCA Masking Children

Since 2020, when COVID-19 kicked off a flurry of rules in the name of public health, masking everyone—including young children—has been painted by authorities as a commonsense, risk-free measure to prevent the spread of infection among society. However, we must consider the downsides to concealing a major portion of children’s faces—especially when they’re prone to nearly zero risk of serious illness.   By Rick Rydell   When schools around the nation began rolling out mask Read More »

School Lunches: The Big Reveal as Compromised Health Starts Early

Posted in School Lunches on January 19, 2023

AVFCA School Lunches

The food in your child’s retro or TV-inspired lunchbox may be healthier than what their school is serving. This is especially true if your kid is toting whole, unprocessed foods with nutritious “macros”—fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. The school’s list of ingredients in their variety of meals may be nasty indeed; empty calories filled with chemicals, additives, seed oils, and processed sugars. Let’s take a peek to see what’s on today’s menu…   Written by Robyn Read More »

AVFCA Blood Banks

Examining blood donation and recipient options for the unvaccinated medical freedom community is new territory; now highlighted post-COVID-19 pandemic mayhem.

Investigating this issue is indeed a worthwhile endeavor.   By Janey Bibolet Ward   Increasing requests for COVID-19-free blood: There is Read More »

AVFCA Religious Exemption

Entering the new year can feel inspiring—visions, aspirations, and letting go of what’s no longer needed.

AVFCA Who Do You Trust?

“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe   By Erin McClintock   You may have heard the expression, “trust must be earned.” But what does earning trust look like?

AVFCA Sweetness of Foods

December 2022; Christmas is approaching. As is New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, and leftover pies, cakes, and candies to follow. It wouldn’t be a big deal during holiday time if you threw caution to the wind and ate whatever you damn well pleased.

AVFCA Boosters & COVID-19

Despite the incessant mantra of “safe and effective,” those who have received the most COVID-19 vaccines are proving to be at higher risk of contracting the very disease they are trying to avoid, than people who have said no to the same shots.

Fake Meat: Exposing the Fallacy of Food-like Products

Posted in Food-Health on November 17, 2022

AVFCA Fake Meat

Marketing can be “tricky” business, especially when the intention is self-interest, and based solely on profits as the bottom line. We were duped in the 1950s with the false notion that consuming fats was a bad idea for heart health. This led us into refined-carbohydrate overload, and contributed to monstrous numbers of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Though we’ve made strides in uncovering the truth, today we’re faced with a next-level conundrum—being told Read More »

Action changes things, and actions start with a thought. The types of thoughts that create positive and effective actions begin with smart questions. “What can I do now, and how can I help?” In the midst of navigating anger, pain, and outrage, these unsung heroes—groups, organizations, and individuals—found the window, the place within themselves, to ask these pertinent questions.   Written by Jennifer Wolff-Gillispie Edited by Nicki Steinberger, Ph.D.   As politicians in the United Read More »
