Dear Michelle Obama,
You clearly recognize that the problems of obesity are far greater than weight control. The future illnesses of our country are in the hands of our children's eating habits and exercise regimes. It's more profound than children being heavy. The conditions that follow over-eating and not exercising are diabetes, high-blood pressure, heart conditions, stroke, blindness, amputations, cancers and early deaths. On top of all of this, the billions of dollars that will go to treat these unnecessary conditions can be prevented very easily if you can convince the McDonald Corporation and others to lead the way in a "fresh vegetable" and "fresh fruit" campaign. You are familiar with Dr. David Katz of the Yale Prevention Research Center, in Connecticut. He is a part of our website for prevention, while HeathRightUSA.org shares the larger mission of addressing acute illnesses which can still be reversed with nutrition and exercise like; Type-2 diabetes, Arthritis, Psoriasis, and many more. PLEASE READ ON!
We must also completely change school lunch programs to healthy vegan choices by educating young people to eat, exercise and grow up teaching the next generation about health. In the video below, Dr. Antonia Demas, describes her years of research with school lunch programs and childhood obesity. She is a fellow at Johns Hopkins who also studied at Cornell University with T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study. Dr. Demas has her own Food Institute (www.foodstudies.org) and for 20 years has led programs teaching school systems in Baltimore and Vermont how to change their food plans. She’s written grants to educate children to cook in school and then help make smart-choice meals with their parents at home. Here is the beginning of change in terms of PREVENTION.
Change is the platform on which your husband was elected! Yet, in order to prevent a legacy of chronic illnesses, education is essential NOW more than ever!
In The China Study you’ll see the enormity of this issue. According to many years of medical research by both Dr. Campbell’s and others, patients who are willing to radically change their diet to vegan foods may indeed reverse their illness and improve their chances for a better quality of life. As our First Lady, please help us begin this education process.
What if the fast food companies, like McDonald’s would agree to offer nutritionally healthy “vegi-burgers” with soy cheese, on whole grain buns, baked sweet potatoes (not fake ‘French-fried’ potatoes), along with mixed-greens salad bars, variety of fresh fruit, sugar-free juices, filtered water and date/apricot/granola bars? While they are asked to modify their menu’s, McDonalds and their competitors (Burger King, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Friendly’s, etc.) could each make contributions to help people with chronic diabetes and other autoimmune condions that can be helped by superior nutrition tobegin their new lives to enable them to recover by choosing a “vegan” diet.

We ask that you lobby with all natural food companies and health organizations to pressure the junk food industry to:
Step one: Offer health food at their restaurants.
Step two: Subsidize school lunches in their towns for the next 25 years under contract of recovery of health in the U.S.
Step three: help to establish a fitness program in our local schools by outside consultants in the healing arts – Qigong is a natural example of an eastern movement that heals people as they exercise. Other sports are optional, but this exercise and perhaps Yoga or Pilates for stretching must be mandatory.
Please contact us to create a panel discussion at the White House with the three health and medical professionals listed and others in the health field. Let’s end the spending and start the healing process in America. The money spent on research, drugs and junk food can go to giving us our health back.
HealthRightUSA, Inc. is a Connecticut nonprofit organization dedicated to providing relief from chronic arthritis, psoriasis and diabetes (type 2) by training patients to “Eat Right” – “Exercise Properly” and “Reduce Stress.” Participants can relax and detoxify at the Dead Sea in Israel returning home feeling renewed with a new lease on life.
At Turn The Tide Foundation, Dr. David Katz offers free programs to help our children eat, exercise and live a healthier lifestyle. Click Here!
Please contact us to bring together Dr. Katz, Dr. Fuhrman and Dr. Demas in a forum to help all young people and adults with these chronic conditions: Arthritis, Psoriasis, Diabetes type-2, since they each lead to disablility and death when unresolved!
We are seeking an audience with you and other philanthropists like Oprah Winfrey who care about the future of our children's children!
