PCRM’s Healthy School Meals Act Commercial – #Helping others with #HeathTips and #Research #Videos



Students need healthy choices in school lunch lines to combat skyrocketing rates of obesity and abnormal cholesterol. In a new 60-second TV commercial, PCRM president and nutrition researcher Neal D. Barnard, M.D., refutes common myths about childhood obesity: One in three kids is now overweight. One in five already has a cholesterol problem. Think the cause is lack of exercise? Think again. To burn off the calories in a burger, a child would have to run three miles. He then asks viewers to support a new bill in Congress, the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010, H.R. 4870.

Reform the March of Dimes – #Helping others with #HeathTips and #Research #Videos



The March of Dimes has funded a series of controversial experiments, including an infamous study in which newborn kittens had their eyelids sewn shut for many months before being killed in an attempt to study the effects of visual deprivation. The March of Dimes itself admits that this study yielded no clinically relevant advances. More recently, the March of Dimes sponsored experiments in which pregnant monkeys were given uterine infections, then tethered to a cage by monitoring cables that ran through the animals’ uteruses and into their babies’ bodies. In another MOD-funded experiment, researchers severely restricted water intake of pregnant sheep. While the March of Dimes has continued to sink money into questionable animal experiments, the real advances in birth defects research have come from human studies.
