Video: BFC Speaks Out for Wild Buffalo at Interagency Bison Management Plan Meeting
Dear brothers and sisters,
We feel privileged to present this magnificent video. Here you are- the people of this great land- standing up for the buffalo. The once endless herds of wild buffalo have been reduced to a remnant-the last surviving herd is in Yellowstone National Park. They are harassed and slaughtered continually. The men and women of the Buffalo Field Campaign are their spokesmen.With what fervor they speak on their behalf! Their vitality and spirit is a portent of the coming renewal and regeneration.
Please watch the video.We would so appreciate your comments.
Please accept my best wishes for good health, prosperity and success to you and family,

I’ve been snacking on this pumpkin hummus the past few days and it sure gets tastier over time. I recommend making this a day before your holiday party and letting the flavors meld together. And you are going to make this for your next holiday party, right? Okay, good!
I especially enjoy the savory spices of cumin and chili powder combined with the light sweetness of the cinnamon and pumpkin puree. It’s not overly pumpkiny, but has just enough to give it a faint cinnamon sweet with a little heat from the cayenne. This pumpkin hummus is seriously the best!
This easy appetizer makes for a flavorful festive looking component to a family-style food spread on the holiday table for gatherings or parties. Hummus is naturally gluten-free, vegan and nutritious; making it a crowd-pleasing hors d’oeuvre option.

We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.
Our rare, certified organic Kiawe Blossom Honey is gathered from an isolated Kiawe forest on the island of Hawaii. The deep tap roots of the Kiawe trees have reached an underground aquifer of fresh water that flows down from the volcanoes. This forest is in a desert and no other vegetation has tapped the aquifer, allowing the bees to collect Kiawe nectar of exceptional purity and quality.
Could Coconut Oil Help Reduce Antibiotics?
(Mercola) It’s no secret that antibiotic resistance has become one of the greatest health threats of the 21st century. As the World Health Organization (WHO) notes, antibiotic resistance is present in every country.
The Review on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), which was commissioned in July 2014 by the U.K. prime minister and produced its final report in 2016, further explained that without action to curb the growing rates of antimicrobial resistance worldwide, we’re headed for an era where antibiotics stop working and “we’re cast back into the Dark Ages of medicine.”
It’s possible that nature may ultimately come to the rescue, courtesy of naturally antibacterial substances like coconut oil, but in the meantime the situation is becoming dire, WHO notes, such that, “Some types of bacteria that cause serious infections in humans have already developed resistance to most or all of the available treatments, and there are very few promising options in the research pipeline.”
It’s also no secret that industrial animal agriculture, i.e., confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), are a major reason why we’re in this predicament.
Eighty percent of the antibiotics used in the U.S. are used by industrial agriculture for purposes of growth promotion4 and preventing diseases that would otherwise make their CAFOs unviable. Low doses of antibiotics are added to feed as a matter of course, not only to stave off inevitable infectious diseases but also because they cause the animals to grow faster on less food. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued guidance on agricultural antibiotics in 2013, but it didn’t go anywhere near far enough.
(Natural News) Children who are extremely obese have only a one in five chance of being of normal weight as adults. Unfortunately, current estimates place around 4.5 million children in the United States being overweight.
According to a report released by researchers at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Thursday, November 30, over 57 percent of children in America will be obese by the time they reach the age of 35 if existing trends in weight gain and unhealthy eating habits persist.
It also said that half of the more than 57 percent of children who will become obese by the age of 35 will start getting fat while they were still children. For currently obese children, the stakes double: three out of four two-year-olds are forecast to still be obese at age 35.
