Parental Consent Act – H.R. 2769

School districts across America are labeling children as having mental disorders on the basis of subjective screening questions which frequently produce false-positive results. This testing is being done often without parents giving consent and isn’t necessarily done for the child’s interest; schools receive more funding for students diagnosed with a disorder and the child might unnecessarily be put on dangerous psychiatric drugs. In this podcast, advocates for the Parental Consent Act of 2011, John Spagnola and Arlene Tessitore, join Michael Ostrolenk to discuss this proposed law which would mandate informed parental consent for school-based screenings. Click here to read a coalition letter in support of H.R. 2769 to learn more about this issue. Please ask your Representative and Senators to support this legislation.  Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Rand Paul, and Rep. Marsha Blackburn are already supporting this bill. To add your name and organization to the coalition letter contact Mr. Spagnola at

Codex Alimentarius – Global Food Imperialism

Does food  safety come from a top-down driven, controlled-market economy where an elitist select few decide what is “best” for all of us?  The United Nations believes the answer to that question is “yes” and is formulating “guidelines” and standards to “protect” us from not only food but vitamins and other dietary supplements.   Scott Tips, JD, President and General Counsel of the National Health Federation, speaks with Michael Ostrolenk about the history and nature of these threats to our medical freedom posed by the Codex Alimentarius (food code) and what the NHF is doing to keep our liberties intact.  In addition to his work at the NHF (the oldest existing consumer health freedom organization founded in 1955), Mr. Tips is the author of the book Codex Alimentarius – Global Food Imperialism.
