Dear ACAM Member:
We are reaching out to all our valued members to address a communication you may receive from the Culinary Workers Union 226 warning you about a potential service disruption or ongoing labor dispute during the ACAM Annual Meeting this November in Las Vegas.  

The emails and phone calls the union representatives made to ACAM headquarters office and to members are certainly disturbing. ACAM's management immediately contacted the owners of the Red Rock Resort, Station Casinos, for their comments.  The Vice President of Station Casinos responded with an instantaneous call and subsequent letter to offer an apology and explain the history of the false communications.  He encouraged ACAM not to be alarmed as they've made an attempt over the course of a decade to unionize the culinary workers.  READ MORE

The Beat Goes On
Just how much longer will the dietary supplement industry continue to be under attack? And more importantly, has the damage already been done?

It's been nearly three months since New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman launched his investigation into the dietary supplements industry by issuing cease-and-desist letters to four major retailers - GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart - calling on them to pull their own brands of herbal supplements from their shelves, following an investigation by his office that found nearly 80 percent of the products tested from those stores contained none of the plants listed on the products' labels. GNC, as you may know, reached an agreement with the attorney general's office in late March whereby the company will use DNA tests to authenticate the plants that will be used as ingredients in its herbal supplements. Some industry experts applauded the agreement, while others said it set a dangerous precedent going forward. READ MORE
How to Eat Clean in a Toxic World
- Frank McGehee, MD, CCN
The reason most food purchased at the grocery store is no longer healthy to eat is the pursuit of profit by the farmers, food companies, grocery stores, popular chain and other eateries, and the inability of most of America to pay or understand the need for "clean" food. Commercials on television also add to the problem, by advertising delicious looking fast food at a cheap price. The reality is that the food is laden with preservatives, nitrites, food coloring, flavor enhancers, growth hormone, anti-biotics, and excess sodium and fat.

Years ago, scientists discovered genetic modified organics or GMO alterations to the food sources. The clever name they gave to the altered food was Genetically Modified Organics, or GMO. The thought process was that placing pesticide inside the seed would lessen disease, and cut the cost of food production. Indeed, that is exactly what occurred. Unfortunately, when the mad scientists rearranged the DNA of the food, they failed to realize the modified food would rearrange OUR DNA! Human beings are not able to digest and process pesticide ridden food. 
Model Legislation from Federation of State Medical Boards Threatens Integrative Medicine - ANH-USA
Back in September 2014, the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) released model legislation for the creation of an interstate medical licensing compact. The stated intent of the legislation is to streamline the licensing process for physicians who wish to apply for medical licenses in multiple states.  READ MORE
