The Daily Crunch: Educate Before You Vaccinate

If you were born in the 1970s or 1980s you most likely received 9 shots during your childhood, never more than two shots per doctor's visit.

For children today, the CDC is recommending 
49 doses of 14 different vaccines by the age of six.

Sounds extreme when you add it all up and compare it to the recommendations for children born just one generation ago.  Doctors and pharmaceutical companies are getting rich at the expense of our children's health.

The US Government has paid out more than 2 billion dollars to vaccine victims for their catastrophic vaccine injuries.  How much more than that do you think politicians and government officials are taking in bribes and kick-backs from pharmaceutical and medical corporations to keep upping the amount of recommended vaccines while turning a blind-eye to the havoc those same vaccines are playing on the health of our children?   I'm sure it's an obscene dollar amount, but only a pittance compared to the profit Big Pharma is making at our expense.

Phyllis Diller on Breastfeeding

I just came across this video on youtube of Phyllis Diller at age 90 talking about her passion for breastfeeding and her experience with being breastfed by her mother and breastfeeding her own six babies. It's not often that you hear someone of her generation speak so frankly and positively about breastfeeding! I love it! Sounds like Phyllis Diller was a bit of a Crunchy Mama!

The Daily Crunch: Celebrating Breastfeeding

This morning my daughters and I are planning to attend an annual breastfeeding celebration put on by the lactation nurses and consultants at our local hospital. The girls and I have gone every year for the last three years, and it's always a fun time. Lots of Crunchy Mamas and their adorable breastfed babies and toddlers! 

In celebration of breastfeeding and all of it's amazing benefits for mothers, babies and our planet, here are some cool breastfeeding-related images found around the web:

"Oh that's okay, I have received too much breastfeeding support already," said no mother ever.

$13,000,000,000: What the United States would save annually if mothers would exclusively breastfeed for the first six months of their baby's life.  I wonder what the long-term healthcare savings would be with all those babies getting the healthiest nutritional start possible.

The Daily Crunch: Don't Let Monsanto Give You a Hand

Let Us Give You an Extra Hand
How About a Single Eye? 

Glyphosate the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup has been shown to cause devastating birth defects such as cyclopia (a single eye on the forehead), infertility, stillbirths, miscarriages, and cancer even at low levels of exposure.

NO, THANK YOU, Monsanto! 
No one needs your toxic chemicals or your mutant seeds.
We'd like to stop poisoning us and are environment!
