Video: We Have An Epidemic Of Chronic Illness In Children. From Less Than 10% In 1960’s To 54% Today

Dear brothers and sisters,

We invite you to decipher the hieroglyph:-

Life expectancy in America is dropping.Health statistics clearly show Americans have been getting increasingly sicker over the past few decades. Chronic diseases are rampant, and children are increasingly coming down with diseases that in the past did not arise until much later in life.

Never before in American history has there been anything like the epidemic of obesity, the epidemic of type 2 diabetes, the epidemic of cancer, the epidemic of heart disease, the epidemic of depression, the epidemic of liver damage, the epidemic of opioids, the epidemic of sexually transmitted disease, the epidemic of Alzheimer’s, and the epidemic of suicides- all concurrently. This amidst a degree of social isolation and loneliness such has never before been seen.

Obviously we can no longer talk of “sustainability”. We have since left it behind and gone on to “regeneration”. But we can’t tarry there, not when we hear that there’s an epidemic of chronic illness in children. It seems to us that we have to go yet further still… towards redemption… to build here an edible schoolyard for the human spirit.

Here’s Beth Lambert to tell us what’s afflicting kids these days.

We would so much appreciate your comments.

Please accept our best wishes for good health prosperity and success to you and family.

Alive, Organic Bonus Program – Heritage Olive Oil and Free Shipping


From a Glorious Elder

I recently discovered your products by purchasing Almond Butter at a store. That led me to your website where I discovered many many more products that appealed to me. I ordered persimmon and mango and they are delicious! I greatly appreciate your complimentary gift to geezers like me (75 yrs). New to CA I find it difficult to get by and it’s been a challenge to eat as I’ve been accustomed all my life-which is to say-healthful food. That’s why the bag of raisins meant so much to me. I expected a small sample so you can imagine my delight when I opened my box and saw that huge bag.

It will take me a while to eat all the goodies.

Many thanks for the company culture you foster and your generosity.

They tell us: Both our philosophy about working with the bees, which we regard as a partnership, and our organic regulations ensure that we interject ourselves as little as possible into the daily activities of the bees and allow them to do what they do so superbly. Hawai’i’s lush and varied vegetation, available year-round, provides the variety and supply of pollens, nectars and propolis that are ideal for bee health.

Do not feed honey to infants under one year of age.
