Once upon a time ...
June 10, 2010

Dear Friends,

You are in a unique position.

You have knowledge that few others have,
and solutions that are unknown to most people.

A few professionals in the medical community are beginning to take a hard look at the "solutions" that have long been used to treat children and adults with behavior and learning problems. They are saying that the drugs used to treat these people are responsible for a drastic increase in the number of children and adults with mental illness.

In the 20 years between 1987 and 2007, the number of children in the U.S. receiving federal payments due to their severe mental illness rose 35 fold! The costs - to our society, to individuals and to our economy - are staggering.

But you know about better ways
to treat these problems!

Even if the medical community decided that good food can be a big part of the answer, they don't know how to help their patients because they have not actually lived it; they don't know how to guide people in gently moving from fake to real food.

But you know how to do this.

As educators and administrators are finally being forced to confront the damage they have caused by feeding our children "factory food," they are seeing that something needs to be done in their school cafeterias. But it seems overwhelming, and they don't know how to proceed.

But you know how.

Most good causes have several organizations that work toward solutions, but we are alone in the work we do. When the Feingold Association was formed in 1976 we expected to volunteer for 5 to 10 years and then, once a few studies were completed and the diet/behavior link was recognized, we would go back to our lives.

Instead, we have seen that the power of money can trump both science and common sense, and the problems our society faced in 1976 pale in comparison to what we now see.

But you know what needs to be done,
and so do we.

We know how to help, and we need your help. Please click on the big red button to make a donation to enable us to continue our work.

Thank you,
Your Feingold Volunteers
