Subject: Ask Congress to Support Healthy Changes to the Farm Bill

Congress is revising the Farm Bill, which will directly affect the health of all Americans—and we need your help to implement federal policy changes that will support healthy foods kalender word herunterladen.

The Farm Bill helps determine what foods are available in schools, nutrition programs, and the entire food economy. There is a direct link between America’s growing rates of chronic disease and our access to cheap and unhealthy food products that are high in fat and cholesterol wie viele videos auf netflixen. That’s why we must encourage Congress to support healthy foods and stop heavily subsidizing animal agriculture.

Here’s how you can help:

Phone calls are an extremely effective way to communicate with Congress. After you’ve made your calls, send a follow-up e-mail qtiplot herunterladen.

* If you belong to an organization that works on health and nutrition issues or cutting health care costs, please let that organization know that you want agricultural policy to be high on its agenda netflixen laptop windows 8.

* Consider e-mailing a special group of members of Congress who may be instrumental in supporting healthy changes to the Farm Bill. Learn more about this group and send them an e-mail runtastic daten herunterladen.

Producers of feed crops (including corn, soy, and wheat), meat, and dairy products receive 73 percent of direct subsidies for food production juwelen spiele kostenlos downloaden deutsch. Fruit and vegetable farmers receive less than 1 percent. The government purchases surplus food commodities, most of which are high in fat, cholesterol, and sugar, for distribution to food assistance programs, including our children’s schools download the German hitmix for free. The government is not required to purchase nutritious foods.

With your help, we can change the Farm Bill. Please send this e-mail to your friends and family and ask them to take action www.kika.de herunterladen. Encouraging Congress to make healthy changes to the Farm Bill will help lower the rates of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.
