  3. 3. Backdrop •  Health  Reform  focus  on  pharmaceu8cal  supply   •  Vermonters  (and  others)  tend  to  pursue  more   natural  alterna8ves  to  wellness   •  Liberty  being  restricted  in  unprecedented   ways  from  many  angles,  9/11   •  Vaccines  being  pushed  on  a  worldwide  basis   as  THE  key  growth  segment  of  pharma  and   “the  economy”  
  4. 4. Liberty: “The Conversation” "It’s  not  a  le+-­‐thing,  it’s   not  a  right  thing  –  it’s  an   American  thing.  We   Americans  need  to  start   talking  to  each  other.”   Vermonter Audrey Pietrucha, - http://greenmountainscribes.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/on-liberty- starting-the-conversation/

The Immune System •  A  complex  network  of  specialized  cells  and   organs  that  dis8nguishes  between  self  and   foreign  molecules  inside  the  body.     •  A  malfunc8oning  immune  system  can  cause   allergies  or  arthri8s  and  can  fail  to  stop  the   growth  of  cancer  cells.
