Attractive Things Seen at a Farmer's Market
Many of the products sold by farmers’ market vendors are organically grown.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - With all the hubbub about the food chain, organic vs. non-organic, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, GMO in our food supply and much more, many people just don’t know what it is all about. So what is a GMO? And how does it affect you and the foods you choose?

Genetically Modified Organism is a living “thing” (plant, animal or otherwise) that has had its genetic structure altered. The alteration can be one or many things, such as increased yield (more or bigger product), reduced size (miniature), bug resistant, disease resistant, pesticide and/or herbicide resistant, and many other options.

California Senior Legislature Announces Top Legislative Priorities for 2015

By Jan Dalske
Posted: 2/27/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Just as soon as the California Senior Legislature (CSL) adjourned its 34th Annual Legislative Session, it announced its top ten State Legislative Proposals for 2015.

One of the top ten proposals included the medication labeling proposal, which would require all prescribers to include the purpose of the medication with their prescription. The prescription drug label may include that purpose unless the patient or the prescriber requests that this information be omitted.

The California Death with Dignity Act would authorize adult California residents who are mentally competent and terminally ill to make a request to receive medication for the purpose of ending their lives in a humane and dignified manner. This would not be classified as a suicide or homicide and would provide immunity from civil or criminal liability.
