    life-threatening side effects, such as
    anaphylactic shock. Other symptoms, such as
    diarrhea and vomiting, can have negative effects
    on a childs health and well-being.
  • One concern that has been raised is that when the
    DNA of a certain plant is genetically modified,
    it may increase its risk of interacting with
    immunoglobulin E (IgE), which plays a key role in
    certain food allergies. Although not fully
    established by the medical community, there is a
    concern, based on two reports in The New England
    Journal of Medicine and Trends Biotechnology,
    that certain genetically modified organisms

Jewish Vegetarians of North America
  • The Torah is full of commandments demanding
    humane treatment of animals, yet the modern
    factory farms that produce over 90 of the animal
    products we consume today raise their animals in
    unconscionable conditions of abject misery. The
    Torah reflects great concern for the land, yet as
    the primary cause of water pollution, water use,
    topsoil erosion, destruction of the world's
    rainforest, and other environmental harms, animal
    agriculture takes a devastating toll on the
    planet. Jewish teachings emphasize the grave
    importance of protecting human health.

    naturopathic doctors.The CNRA has a
    nondiscriminatory policy among schools as we
    recognize we are registering individuals not
    institutions. The CNRA is interested in the
    quality and professionalism of the
    student/graduate, not the prestige of the school
    from which he/she received his/her degree or is
    currently studying.
  • Robert Cohen, who holds a degree
    in Psychoneuroendocrinology, performed research
    in the 1970s on the hormonal effects on the
    brain and behavior. Twenty-five years later, this
    father of three became concerned about the most
    controversial drug approval in FDA history, the
    genetically engineered hormone that is now in our
    milk supply.  Along the way, Cohen discovered
    that milk is implicated in causing breast cancer,
    osteoporosis, heart disease, and chronic
    childhood illnesses.  Cohens skills as a
    researcher, and his passion for the safety of his
    family, led to his single-minded pursuit to
    expose the truth about milk.

Friends of the Earth
  • Friends of the Earth strives for a more healthy
    and just world. We understand that the challenges
    facing our planet call for more than half
    measures, so we push for the reforms that are
    needed, not merely the ones that are politically
    easy. Sometimes, this involves speaking
    uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more
    than people think is possible. It's hard work.
    But the pressures facing our planet and its
    people are too important for us to compromise.

Latter Day Saints Vegetarians

    self in a meat centered, contrary society

    like belief, who may already be experienced,
    along with others also learning, makes this
    change and its continuing experience easier.   
    It is also helpful, as it is with our faith, to
    be able to connect, share and work out challenges
    and find loving support along our learning path
    so we here are drawn together in supportive
    friendships and fellowship in this important
