Patterned after the nutrition labels we see on many food products, the social 'nutrition' labels promoted by Project Label (http://projectlabel.org/) are a way to leverage consumer knowledge to provide an idea of what impact a company's products are having on


  • personal health, nutrition and safety,
  • the social and community level,
  • and on a planetary, environmental level.


Each one of these areas is further broken down. How is explained in more detail on this page of the Project Label site.

Project Label is a site in public beta release that provides for consumer input. People can collect and post information in articles. Those articles are subsequently voted on by other consumers. The information which is collected in this way is then processed into the form of a social label. The steps on how this works are described here.

Posted by EU Times on March 3, 2011

It is time to come with a follow up story to further prove that the Microwave oven is seriously dangerous to people and not only.

It is claimed by Microwave oven producers and even scientists that the Microwave oven is not only ok to use but it is actually even recommended. Some go as far as claiming that it makes the food more healthy.

Cancerhelp.co.uk says for example that “microwaving can actually be quite a healthy way to cook” but how could it be healthy when it radiates the food and it destroys vitamins such as Vitamin B12?

It is true that the Microwave oven uses a nonionizing form of radiation which is not as cancerous as the ionizing radiation but still are you willing to risk your health over a fast way to heat your food? There are other ways to heat your food without any risks and controversies.

(NaturalNews) Maryanne Godboldo of Detroit, Mich., recently learned the hard way that freedom of choice in medicine is no longer tolerated by the medical mafia in the supposed "land of the free." Recently, armed officers from the Special Response Team (SRT) of the Detroit Police Department (DPD), at the command of Child Protective Services (CPS), unlawfully kicked down the door of Godboldo's home and kidnapped her 13-year-old child. Her crime? Maryanne chose to follow the lead of a doctor's recommendation to take her daughter off a pharmaceutical drug treatment recommendation for psychosis that was worsening the child's symptoms, and instead chose to use natural remedies to treat the condition.

One year later, the 32-year-old said she still suffers from a range of debilitating health problems, including racing heartbeat, vomiting, dizziness, ear infections, swollen throat, poor sight in one eye and memory loss.

She blames toxic elements in the crude oil and the dispersants sprayed to dissolve it after the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico about 50 miles (80 kilometers) off the coast of Louisiana on April 20, 2010.

AstraZeneca has already settled nearly 25,000 personal-injury lawsuits pertaining to its antipsychotic drug Seroquel

Google the word “depression” and the first search result you’ll get will be for the antipsychotic drug Seroquel XR.

Visit WebMD and you’ll find the home page hosts similar ads for Seroquel XR, above and adjacent to the lead news story.

Who would know that AstraZeneca inked the largest multi-state consumer-protection settlement on record relating to deceptive Seroquel marketing on March 14 for $68.5 million? And only a year after inking a similar settlement related to burying side effect and safety information for $520 million with the government!

There may be many more children than previously thought who have suffered from narcolepsy, the uncontrollable need to sleep, as a side effect from the swine flu vaccine.

The Swedish Medical Products Agency (Läkemedelsverket), is reviewing the records of about 135 cases, after having combed the country, including sleep clinics, for suspected cases, south Sweden’s daily newspaper, Sydsvenskan, reported.

“It’s not so easy to get hold of information about vaccinations. We have various systems in the Swedish health care that make it difficult to sort out what has happened,” Tomas Salmonson, Scientific Director for the MPA, told Sydsvenskan.

(NaturalNews) Refusing to comply with state-sanctioned protocols for cancer treatment -- even when they cause immense pain and suffering, and possibly even a more rapid death -- can get you tried for murder if a loved-one under your care with cancer ends up dying. A Massachusetts woman currently faces murder charges based on testimony from her son's doctor who claims that the mother did not properly administer chemotherapy drugs to her son, thus causing his death.

According to a report in The Boston Globe, Kristen LaBrie allegedly stopped giving her son Jeremy his chemotherapy medication, at least for a time, which plaintiffs say resulted in his death. LaBrie has personally denied the allegations on numerous occasions, but her lawyer has since admitted that LaBrie did, indeed, stop giving her son the drugs. However, he claims she did so because she could no longer bear to watch the pain and suffering the drugs were inflicting on her son.

On Saturday, April 2, Blue Hill became the third town in Maine to adopt the Local Food and Self-Governance Ordinance. The Ordinance was passed at Blue Hill's town meeting by a near unanimous vote. This comes on the heels of the unanimous passage of the Ordinance in neighboring towns, Sedgwick and Penobscot, on March 5 and March 7, respectively. The Ordinance asserts that towns can determine their own food and farming policies locally, and exempts direct food sales from state and federal license and inspection requirements.


On March 7, the Ordinance failed in a fourth town, Brooksville, by a vote of 161 to 152, however voting irregularities have called the vote's validity into question. Brooksville town residents are circulating a petition calling for a revote at a special town meeting, which could take place in the next few months. The petition questions the legality of placing the town's Ordinance Review Committee's recommendation of a "No" vote on the ballot. Brooksville was the only town to vote on the ordinance by ballot, rather than by a show of hands.

(NaturalNews) The mass radioactive contamination of our planet is now under way thanks to the astonishing actions taking place at the Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan. As of last night, TEPCO announced it is releasing 10,000 tons of radioactive water directly into the Pacific Ocean. That 2.4 million gallons of planetary poison being dumped directly into the ocean.

This water is being released because they have run out of places to keep it on land. It's too deadly to transport anywhere else, and all the storage pools around Fukushima are already overflowing. So they're dumping it into the ocean, then calling it "safe" because they claim the ocean will "disperse" all the radiation and make it harmless.

But because there's more radioactive water being produced every day at Fukushima, this process of releasing radioactive water into the ocean could theoretically continue for years, easily making Fukushima the worst nuclear disaster in the history of our world.

"A new invention to poison people ... is not a patentable invention." Lowell v. Lewis, 1817

A landmark lawsuit filed on March 29 in US federal court seeks to invalidate Monsanto's patents on genetically modified seeds and to prohibit the company from suing those whose crops become genetically contaminated.

The Public Patent Foundation filed suit on behalf of 270,000 people from sixty organic and sustainable businesses and trade associations, including thousands of certified-organic farmers. In Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association, et al. v. Monsanto, et al. (U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, Case No. 11 CIV 2163), PUBPAT details the invalidity of any patent that poisons people and the environment, and that is not useful to society, two hallmarks of US patent law.
