This petition aims to positively influence the approach the European Commission is taking in its efforts to regulate Complementary and Alternative Medicine across the 27 Member States of Europe.
Disproportionate, poorly thought-through legislation represents the single greatest threat to natural health care in the European Union.
Standards of education and training being proposed.
by the European Commission in its efforts to regulate Complementary and Alternative Medicine across the 27 Member States of Europe
The threshold entry route to the register will be through a Bachelor degree with Honours which is comparable to the majority of other medical professions.
Entry to the register may also be possible through possession of an appropriate Masters degree; this is consistent with other professions including physiotherapy, radiography and occupational therapy.
Overseas qualifications will need to be considered separately
We agree that some standards of training and practice should be applied, but to demand that a hairdresser, who is giving an Indian Head Massage must have Bachelor degree with Honours as a minimum qualification to do so is ludicrous.

Teesside Cast Products is one of the largest employers on Teesside.
With a history of steelmaking that stretches back over a hundred years, Teesside has been the backbone of Britain's industrial revolution and the foundation of its manufacturing base.
The loss of steelmaking on Teesside would deliver a body blow to a fragile UK economy and devastate the North East.
The current United States legal drinking age is 21. Many United States citizens disagree with this age. Many believe that the age to legally be able to purchase, consume or possess alcohol should be 18.
A United States Citizen is allowed to vote when they are 18 years of age. 18 year old males are forced to join the Selective Service, for possible drafting. This means that 18-year old males can go to war. At age 18, a citizen is also inclined to jury duty. So, an 18-year old is given the responsibilities of voting, being selected for jury duty, and possibly being drafted for war.
If an 18-year old citizen is to be given these responsibilities, why is the legal drinking age 21? Does the U.S. Government not trust those of us under 21? They trust us with their votes, yet they cannot treat us like full adults for another 3 years!
Since I was 12 in 1995 I have felt the same way about this sort of advertising as I do now, and I'm now 27yrs old.
This must stop and the average woman's rights to feel sexy in their family home should be restored to them. Not have It cheapened to an imposable unrealistic unachievable Image of what beauty is set by the media, by this form of advertising.
Targeted & catering to the male viewers only. And leaving a large majority of combined viewers, Unsettled in their own homes, Of mixed dwellings.
WE WILL HAVE THESE LAWS AMENDED ! To Only Advertising Products & Product Related Services.
Climate change may be a big problem, but there are many little things we can do to make a difference. If we try, most of us can do our part to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that we put into the atmosphere. Many greenhouse gases come from things we do every day. As we have learned, these greenhouse gases trap energy in the atmosphere and make the Earth warmer.
Driving a car or using electricity is not wrong. We just have to be smart about it.Some people use less energy by carpooling. For example, four people can ride together in one car instead of driving four cars to work. Here are some additional ways you can help make the planet a better place!
Learning about the environment is very important. There are many good books that will help you learn. To get started, ask a teacher or a librarian for some suggestions. You also can look at the Links page to find other good web sites with information about the environment and climate change.
Whenever we use electricity, we help put greenhouse gases into the air. By turning off lights, the television, and the computer when you are through with them, you can help a lot.
Bike, Bus, and Walk
You can save energy by sometimes taking the bus, riding a bike, or walking.
Talk to Your Family and Friends
Talk with your family and friends about climate change. Let them know what you've learned.
Planting trees is fun and a great way to reduce greenhouse gases. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the air.
Recycle cans, bottles, plastic bags, and newspapers. When you recycle, you send less trash to the landfill and you help save natural resources, like trees, oil, and elements such as aluminum.
When You Buy, Buy Cool Stuff
There are lots of ways we can improve the environment. One of the ways to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that we put into the air is to buy products that don't use as much energy. By conserving energy, we help reduce climate change and make the Earth a better place. Some products – like certain cars and stereos – are made specially to save energy.
Some Things to Think About
Did you know that you can help the environment if you buy recyclable products instead of non-recyclable ones? Look for the recycle mark – three arrows that make a circle – on the package. Recyclable products are usually made out of things that already have been used. It usually takes less energy to make recycled products than to make new ones. The less energy we use, the better.
Imagine that it's a hot summer day. You put a scoop of ice cream on the sidewalk, and it melts. Why? Well, you probably know that the sun causes the ice cream to melt. But you may not know that the sun produces solar energy. Solar energy is a fancy way of saying "energy that comes from the sun." Solar energy can be used to heat homes, buildings, water, and to make electricity. Today, more than 200,000 houses in the United States take advantage of the sun's energy.
Cars are an important part of life for most people. But cars also cause pollution and release a lot of greenhouse gases into the air. Fortunately, there are some cars that are better for the environment. These cars can travel longer on a smaller amount of gasoline. They don't pollute as much, either. Using these kinds of cars can help reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the air.
Many things, like computers, TVs, stereos, and VCRs, have special labels on them. The label says "Energy" and has a picture of a star. Products with the ENERGY STAR® label are made to save energy. Buying products with ENERGY STAR® labels will help protect the environment.
We've all been to Walmart and we've all the seen the hundreds of Hannah Montana, Cheetah Girls, and High School Musical items, correct?
Employees have even said themselves that these items are simply not selling. They sell a little here and there, but yet their store is flooded with the faces of the characters mentioned above.
However, I believe that if Walmart decided to start Jonas Brothers items (notebooks, clothes, bags, practically everything that thw other characters get) that they would sell.
Jonas Brothers fans will buy almost anything they can that has JB on it, right?
Ban Pampers Products.
Pampers/Proctor & Gamble has started a controversial ad campaign promoting tetanus shots through Unicef. They are donating .05 cents from the sale of their diapers and wipes, with a *Target* of giving 45 millions neonatal tetanus shots to pregnant women, mostly in poor, underdeveloped countries.
Tetanus shots are dangerous, and the adjuvants in them are known to cross the placenta and brain barriers. It is my intention for P&G to stop this damaging campaign that may contribute to harming pregnant women, with these controversial shots, as well as the potential to harm their unborn babies, with birth defects, spontaneous abortions, and possible stealth ingredients to sterilize, hidden in these tetanus shots. That has happened in the past and is well documented!
NOTE: More men than women contract tetanus. And if consenting adults want to get a normal tetanus shot, at least let the pregnant women give birth before offering these free vaccines. Free is a shoddy way to Mandate global vaccinations!. Uninformed is not truthful consent.
Give them the opportunity to know and understand the Full Information/insert label warnings, cautions, side effects etc., in order for them to make that "Informed" Choice and decision
Proctor & Gamble does not apprear to be overly concerned about popular opinion with this current and controversial vaccine ad campaign, as per their nebulous response to me that they feel they are doing a good thing. Their timing with this campaign is not good, giving the growing concern about vaccine dangers, efficacy, injuries, autism and deaths. In their continued progression of this campaign, with what they say is their interest in saving women and babies, they may well be doing their part in contributing to harming and killing 45 million pregnant women and/or their unborn children.
Unicef's other various vaccine programs, may contribute to harming millions more.
It is the feeling of this petitioner that P&G could be spending those donations in a more positive, purposeful light. That being: donations to research for autism spectrum, vaccine dangers/injury awareness, and information about rights NOT to vaccinate. Or to give these pregnant women, food, vitamens, better water sources and sanitation, as well as prenatal care.
At the very least, give THEM diapers and wipes, NOT Vaccines!
Vaccines are an iffy science, with little proof that they protect against any disease. With vaccines components given unnaturally thru vaccines, the studies are poor in understanding damages that can occur. and the adjuvants in them that can cause adverse reactions, especially in infants, such as encephalitis, seizures, serious site infections and other life-long neurological and autoimmune diseases, not to mention the high incidents of vaccine-induced infant mortality.
The tetanus vaccine is no more effective than any of the others. It also is counterproductive. It will INCREASE, Not Decrease the risk of tetanus, and many people actually get tetanus from the vaccines. Read Link.
Tetus Shot adjuvant: What is in a Tetanus vaccine?
What Unicef is giving is called Neonatal tetanus vaccines. They are not even the standard tetanus shot one gets after stepping on a rusty nail. More info on these.
*So SIGN this petition Today, to help stop this horrific Pampers promotion, and by Banning Pamper's sale of diapers and wipes, and other products.
Below is the link to Protor & Gamble's currant Ad promo running in the media. It offers a Thermometer that tells how these sales are growing, per million.
Tell everyone you know to stop buying Pampers as well. Pass this petition along to any interested Groups you link with. Would like for this to become a very Big anti-promotion campaign.
Proctor & Gamble needs to hear from all of us. Leave your comments if you care to. We need to make a difference NOW, before these 45 million tetanus shots start to be dispersed. Thank YOU!
NOTE: this is not a Debate about vaccines or anything else. If you agree with this petition, Sign IT.
If not, Dont sign and leave negative comments.
All consumers have the right to know how their product reaches the shop-shelf, and past surveys have shown that people would be less likely to buy products if they explicitly state that they/their ingredients HAVE been tested on animals.
We are campaigning in order to raise awareness of the extent of animal testing, in order to enable consumers to make more informed decisions with regards to the products they buy.
One of the worst problems facing America today is it's increasing levels of overweight and obesity. "A recent report published by a research team at Johns Hopkins University predicts that if current trends continue, by the year 2015, 75 percent of all Americans, including 24 percent of all children and adolescents, will be overweight or obese" (PCRM).
These numbers are astonishingly high, so health has become a key issue. One main focus has grown on the influence of American schools.
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP), established in 1946, is one of five federally funded child nutrition programs which provide meals to children across the country daily. "Schools participating in the NSLP receive cash subsidies and commodity foods for each meal served and bonus commodities, as they are available from agricultural surplus. In return, schools must serve lunches that meet federal nutrition requirements" (PCRM).
Unfortunately, there are many factors, including financial constraints and outdated federal requirements, which permit schools to serve unhealthful food.
"One of the most significant roadblocks to change is the USDA’s commodity system. Each year, the USDA purchases hundreds of millions of pounds of pork, beef, and other animal products, primarily as an economic benefit to agricultural interests, and donates them to the NSLP and other food assistance programs. Unfortunately, these “entitlement foods” are almost all unhealthful foods. This system makes it easy and inexpensive for food service directors to choose chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and other high-cholesterol, high-fat foods" (PCRM).
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's (PCRM) "Healthy School Lunch Campaign was established in 2001 to help protect children’s health and to reduce childhood obesity rates by increasing the availability of healthful plant-based foods in schools" (PCRM). "To earn a high grade on PCRM’s School Lunch Report Card, school districts must go above and beyond USDA requirements, which many nutrition experts believe are inadequate" (PCRM).
Since the induction of the Healthy School Lunch Campaign, many school districts have begun to increase the availability of healthy vegetarian and vegan entrées. And while a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an entirely acceptable vegan option, some schools have even begun to offer more creative and tasteful options, such as veggie burgers and extended salad bars. These advances have been highly praised and are the initial steps which will lead today's generations into a more healthy, productive future.
These are changes that we hope to be seen in our own schools and community. We hope that Murrieta Valley High School may take the lead in providing healthful food options which may promote a more successful, healthy future for it’s students. We know that a productive life begins with a positive diet. For those who already choose to eat healthfully, as well as those who have not been given the option, we are for the better availability of food which is nourishing for both our bodies and minds.
More than 100 million sharks are killed (compared to 4 people) by FINNING, a cruel infringement on animal rights.
In addition Mercury poisoning is 40x higher than recommended with this product.
General Electric is an outstanding company, and has been for over 125 years. Motivated and inspired by Thomas Edison, the company has been recently helping countries and people all across the world.
GE not only contributes to the medical field, the first company to ever be assigned to its 50,000th patient, but also helps developing countries and war veterans. GE values creativity and imaginative thinking trying to improve the world one step at a time. GE makes environmentally friendly products, which are also energy efficient.
By exploring alternative energy sources and reducing gas emission by 30% this company is making great strides. The expansive growth in other countries also contributes to opening new jobs and markets to people in need. GE follows the principles in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, meaning they believe in fair conduct of all workers and taking steps to make that happen by taking special precautions for its workers, making an environmentally safe and impact free work environment. GE is also the lead provider in advanced medical equipment, making them a necessity around the world.
GE, this year, has donated 2.1 million dollars to different organizations helping in Darfur. Overall, GE contributions to Africa exceed 20 million dollars. Each year, hundreds of employees from GE gather together to make communities better. These projects take place here in the U.S and over seas.
The employees reach over 1 million hours of volunteer work throughout the year, helping to once again better our communities. GE has started a Volunteers foundation, which works with local charity organizations and local communities. Recently GE has coordinated Paintfest, the largest volunteer effort ever underway.
By painting hospitals and clinics GE employees teach their customers to imagine. As well as numerous hours of volunteer work, GE also has a Disaster Relief Fund. GE has also been helping to “clean up” Asian countries. They have started projects to help clean up the rivers. GE also employees over 6,000 veterans providing for those who have served our country.
GE is very helpful to not only the United States, but countries all over the world. They provide, help, and give to those in need and have been for over 125 years. Not only does GE serve the medical and appliance industry, but they serve the people.
You cant be an animal lover and a non-vegetarian. This is for all the people who love animals to stop eating tham and animal products.
Animal lovers should be a voice for these voiceless innocent animals. Please discourage non vegetarians from eating animal meat and also try to make your pets vegetarians.
CMS Metal Products which is located at 909 8th Ave. in our Eastveiw neighborhood is a mess again. This business has fridges, deep freezes, stoves, water heaters, bikes and anything anybody wishs to drop off there.
This business has made Eastveiw a junkyard, garbage disposaL where people can drop their garbage off at anytime on to city property. I have complained to the City of Regina on numerous occassions such as December 9, 2006

IMVU is going to render products that only AP Pass holders can use unusable, after a significant amount of community members have purchased it with their own money. It is an error on their end they have not fixed and once fixed, will make a large amount of product unavailable to users who have purchased them with credits, which are bought with money.
IMVU AP Holders do not want this happen. AP Holders cannot trade or sell these items. AP Holders can only use these items with other AP holders.
AP Holders are going to be the ones who will suffer the consequences by losing out on product they honestly came by because it was sold in the catalog. AP Holders should not be the ones punished for select individuals who abused the system by selling Mature products either through the regular IMVU purchasing procedures or via another off-site website.
One of the bugs we are working on right now is that, apparently, [formerly] Mature products can still be used after they are marked Mature. Even worse, there are sites out there that have figured out a way to sell hidden products. So, essentially, they are selling products that are marked Mature. We will be rectifying this in short order and involving the authorities where needed.
This petition is now closed. IMVU has disabled mature products and is currently undergoing a reimbursement process to all its Access Pass members who have Mature Content in their inventories. More information can be obtained here at the IMVU Access Pass Holders Only Forum: http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewforum.php&f=23
You must be an IMVU Access Pass user in order to read this forum.
Did you know that most common household cleaners are polluting your indoor air and are bad for your health? Many all-purpose cleaners, oven cleaners, window cleaners, polishes, etc. are created from petroleum distillants, which are hazardous to your health.
Cleaners also contain dyes, perfumes, phosphates and formaldyde agents, which are dangerous to your health and which linger in the air that you are breathing in your homes. Many of these toxins are suspected carcinogens, and many are harmful to aquatic life when poured down the drain.
Companies do exist that create all of their cleaning products from safe and natural materials. Why are we supporting the companies that do not?
All donations to Savebabe.com will be used to help Animals Australia highlight the plight of this intelligent species.
Animals Australia firmly believes that the vast majority of Australians, once fully aware of the suffering of pigs in factory farms, will vote for change through the choices that they make. Informing them is crucial.
Our current advertisements and billboards which have assisted us to launch the savebabe.com campaign have been funded through the donations of caring Australians.
However, this is only the beginning - we need to reach every Australian.
In a recent edition of the British “Guardian Weekly” internationally renowned naturalist Lyall Watson commented about pigs, " I know of no other animals that are more consistently curious, more willing to explore new experiences, more ready to meet the world with open-mouthed enthusiasm".
Savebabe.com will work towards ensuring that these animals are provided with the world that they are meant to live in – not the one devoid of hope and sunshine that they currently endure in Australia.

To save ourselves, we need to Save The FDA!
The FDA is beholden to Big Pharma rather than the other way around. This is evident since the FDA:
1) lets Big Pharma get away with keeping its defective products on the market - even though they may cause you to die!
2) prevents you from buying Canadian and other low cost medicines -
thereby trying to help eliminate Big Pharma's competition... at great cost to you!
3) lets Big Pharma get away with rewarding your doctor for prescribing you less safe and more expensive medications... that you may not even need.
4) is trying to ban and discredit natural herbs and supplements -
to help Big Pharma eliminate its competition... at great cost to you!
5) continues to permit manufacturers of sunscreen and sunblock lotions to sell their fraudulently labeled and misrepresented as effective, products.
We, the undersigned, petition the Department of Health and Human Services to promptly create an office that oversees the FDA ensuring that the FDA promptly:
1) becomes the people's fiduciary and puts the interests of the American people before the interests of industry and profits, ensuring truth and ***proactively*** prevents collusion and fraud by weeding out those individuals on payroll or otherwise, who put their personal agenda before the agenda of the FDA.
2) creates an independent office that reviews the safety of drugs already on the market, separate from the office that puts drugs on the market in the first place.
3) seeks to help lower the cost of medicines and health care for the American people and helps encourage innovation by helping promote competition for the pharmaceutical and health care industries through the importation of safe medicines and other health care products and services from other countries.
4) mandates that doctors be required to disclose to their patients the costs and risks of all medicine choices - including generic alternatives.
5) mandates that Big Pharma does not use doctors (and others who prescribe medicine) as salesmen; That if Big Pharma provides trips, freebies and other perks to those who practice medicine, it must do so without preference to those who bring in the most business.
6) helps to ensure the safety of natural herbs, remedies and products that compete with Big Pharma's products - not to ban them or discredit
their value without actual independent proof - studies not sponsored by Big Pharma.
7) quits its vendetta against the herb, ephedra and doesn't attack other herbs without merit. Unless a natural substance is more dangerous than its synthetic form, it's disingenuous to prohibit the sale of the natural substance if the synthetic form can be sold without a prescription.
8) promptly addresses the legitimacy of sunscreen and sunblock products and prohibits fraudulent labeling and misrepresentation of efficacy in blocking harmful ultraviolet radiation.

My 10th grade World Affairs class is engaging in a Global Activism project. My topic is about Genetically Engineered Food.
I chose this topic because I personally wanted to know what is in the food I am eating and I want others to know as well. There is a law in progress called, "The Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act." It is a law making it illegal to not label foods with genetically engineered ingredients.
Many brands that have genetically engineered products are General Mill, Nabisco, and Hunts. I am not telling you to boycott these products but to help me to encourage citizens to be aware of what they are eating and what is in their food. There is a lack of testing of these products and not enough information on their effects. A couple of effects are that they may increase the risk of allergenic reactions or may carry unpredictable toxins.
On a global scale, GE foods are benefiting investing companies and not the consumers. Some researchers believe that it will stop world hunger. This is impossible if the people who are poverty stricken cannot afford it. So why are we still continuing to make the companies richer while others are dying from hunger? 600 million people are undernourished.
All in all, I am asking that you support me by signing my petition for the passing of "The Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act."

To detemine cause of employee health problems at Modern Line Products.
The mortality rate for former employees is very high in comparison to other manufacturers in the Mississippi delta.
Modern Line Products used Asbestos, Silicosis, Manganese, Lead Paint, Paint removers, Asbestos & Mesothelioma, Tooling bits known to cause cancer and Oils that cause cancer.
All the abovementioned items are in the courts all over the country. What we are asking is that an investigation be done in a speedy and efficient manner to determining what health effects these chemicals and other hazardous materials had on the
Janaury 27, 2006
Employees and what the effect would have on their offspring in the future.
We also concern about how Modern Line Products disposed chemical and other hazardous materials.
This Petition applies to those who have lost a family member who once was employed by Modern Line Products.
There is such a demand for eighties cartoons to come back in the form of merchandising products and dvds that people who do not own copy rights are making money off of reproducing product from the originals! I have fallen victim to an illegal reproduction scam since I was looking for the original Strawberry Shortcake TV episodes and specials on DVD!
Please get a complete Season 1 and 2 on DVD and include the specials within those compilations. Thank you!!!!
We having signed this petition vow not to visit Florida, Disney Land, Bush Gardens or any other attractions in Florida. We also are not buying products made in your state. Until something is done with the people responsible for the death of Terri Schiavo.
Through the years, ciggarette and cleaning product factories, pet shops, etc. has been mistreating animals.
Cigarrtes factories force animals to smoke the cigars for a long time, to see what happens, and owners of cleaning product factories must test their products on something, so they choose animals to test them on. They drop chemicals that the product contains in the mouths and eyes of rabbits and monkeys. And, many of the times the animal is greatly injured, and even died painfully.
And pet shops only provide small cages for the cats and dogs, that are barely larger than their bodies. We must stop this unjust action now!
Me, Gabriela Cano, my sister, Carlina Cano, and my companion, Hannah Jones have made this petition to stop this cruel act towards animals.
Iams/Eukanuba does research on animals for their products which may not sound bad, but they first spay female cats, and make them eat so much food and make them unhealthily fat. They then starve the cats to do research about weight loss.
They also do stuff to puppies. They inject toxins into the puppies bodies so their kidneys don't function as well. They then kill the puppies.
Take a stand against this inhumane treatment!!!
Some super markets have agreed to stop testing their products on animals but it still happens.

What's the harm in letting teenagers purchase paintball products? the paintball industry would make alot more money if they let teenagers purcase paintball products legaly under the age of 18! ive been playing paintball for 3 years i have never had any injuirys playing paintball.
Insurance companys have rated paintball the safest sport. Only idiots get hurt playing paintball, buy doing something wrong
Testing cosmetics on animals for the benefit of humans is cruel and inhumane. There is no excuse for putting beauty products such as foot scrub into an animals' eye to watch them squirm in agony of the burning chemicals.
It is also wrong to smear liquid make-up onto a cat's shiney coat and wait for it to cake on, just to see if it will be an all-day wear make-up.
I don't think you would like to spend your entire day locked in a cage, then taken out to have chemicals in or on you, and then left in your cage to suffer in pain. I am here to petition against the testing of human-used products on animals.
I hope you agree with what I have to say on this matter and sign this petition.
This petition calls on the comsumer market of Krish Cosmetic products to appeal to The Kingston Town Council to revoke a suspension of my mostly Caribbean African Cosmetic Produtcs.
This petition is written for the express purpose of eliminating the profuse box elder bug population.
