Add a comment to the 'petition' to get Sally on Oprah.

A Request for Oprah

Dear Oprah,

I envision you, or your staff, may have already heard from others letting you know about the Weston A. Price Foundation, and/or the book Nourishing Traditions by author Sally Fallon Morell. Having recently seen Michael Pollan on your show, I am inspired to write in order to encourage you to expand upon the important conversation you've begun. I wholeheartedly applaud you for acknowledging our collective need for a food revolution and for your personal commitment to considering where your food is coming from with awareness.

I know you have a school of girls you consider to be your daughters and as such, I imagine that the topic of nourishing our children will be of great interest to you. I served as a learning specialist in private practice for a number of years before I founded the Nourishing Our Children campaign in 2005. I had a strong sense that the students in my private practice, while very well-fed, were lacking in vital nutrients. I strongly suspected that they may have been malnourished rather than learning disabled. As a result, I closed my private practice to devote myself to the cause of educating and inspiring parents to return to the whole, natural foods that have produced generation after generation of healthy children.

Our campaign has a presentation that we give to parents groups on the topic of Timeless Principles for Supporting Learning, Behavior and Health Through Optimal Nutrition. We have distributed our educational materials to well over 500 who are giving the presentation in their communities all over the United States, as well as in Canada, Brazil, Iceland, and Australia.

Some of the topics covered are topics I have not yet heard discussed on your show, such as raw milk, the benefits and necessity of saturated fats, the ploy of soy, and the dangers of toxic grains in most breakfast cereals. These topics would expand upon and deepen the dialogue on food that you've begun. Did you know that butter is a traditional fat that has nourished healthy population groups throughout the globe for thousands of years? We have a whole section on the Skinny on Fat. You may be surprised to learn that you may eat fat, and lose fat! You can learn some additional facts that you may not know about your diet here - Dietary Wisdom.

I would love you to feature the research of Weston A. Price, and the work of those who have followed in his footsteps, on your show and/or in your magazine. I encourage you to interview Sally Fallon Morell, the Founder and President of The Weston A. Price Foundation, to learn about wise traditions in food, farming and the healing arts.

Follow these links to learn more ...

The Weston A. Price Foundation

Nourishing Our Children

I am opening up this request to others in the larger community to express their similar desire to have you expand upon the topic of real food.

You'll find their comments below.

I greatly appreciate you considering our request - we hope to talk with you soon!

Truly,

Sandrine Hahn, Director

I agree with PP. I met Sally Fallon. She was pretty abrasive and full of herself.

I think Joe Salatin would be so much better at making people understand what the problem with processed foods and factory farms really is.

BTW, yesterday Katie Couric was on the Today Show and she was talking about how dangerous it is to give food animals low doses of antibiotics. Some of the message is getting out there!!!

Oprah's people called Joel Salatin about the Food, Inc. show, but decided to go with Michael Pollan instead... or at least that's what I heard from the Polyface folks. I think he'd be willing to fly out, but he would refuse to bring Oprah any meat because it wouldn't be local for her.

Hey, maybe some of us should post the names of other TF advocates in the comments section on that Oprah thing--not sure if she's even seeing it...

If any of you decide to write a letter about other folks being on her show, I'd certainly sign a petition about any of the people you all have mentioned here...(And I didn't realize Sally comes off as so abrasive--I've only seen her speak in the film Fathead...)

I've never seen SF speak, but her writing alone seems abrasive enough.

I have and I thought she was lovely!

I think PBS would be a better fit. I would love to see her "Oiling of America" talk on there.
