Auto, Motorcycle & Truck Accidents

Drunk Driving (DUI) Car Accidents

  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving - MADD

    MADD was incorporated on September 5, 1980, the mission or purposes of MADD as stated in its Articles of Incorporation were “To aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving." In 1984, MADD changed its name from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. This carefully considered change was made because MADD is opposed to the criminal act of drunk driving, not individuals. MADD also updated its mission statement to “Mothers Against Drunk Driving provides grassroots leadership to create major social change in the attitude and behavior of Americans toward drunk driving."

  • Students Against Drunk Driving - SADD

    Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say "No" to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role modeling and environmental strategies can prevent other destructive decisions and set a healthier, safer course for their lives. And that is why SADD has become a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide.

     

    SADD's Mission:
    To provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving and other destructive decisions.

Healing the Body After An Accident

  • Physician Commmitte for Responsible Medicine

    The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a nonprofit association that  promotes the idea of an "optimal diet for prevention of disease." This is a great resource to investigate on your own the relationshipe between "dis-ease" of the body and diet (what you put in your mouth when you eat). The Physician Committe is was founded by Dr. Neal Barnard, M.D., who is an adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). Dr. Barnard has led numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on what medicine calls "dis-eases." Some of these "dis-eases" include the following:  diabetes, body weight in relation to "dis-ease," and chronic pain, including a revolutionary study of dietary interventions in type 2 diabetes, funded by the National Institutes of Health. Moreover, Dr. Barnard has authored more than seventy (70) scientific publications, as well as seventeen (17) books.  As president of the Physicians Committee, Dr. Barnard leads educational programs advocating for preventive medicine, good nutrition (as opposed to the SAD "Standard American Diet"), and higher ethical standards in scientifc research. He has hosted three PBS television programs on nutrition and health, and is frequently called on by various news programs and channels to lead discussions on  issues related to nutrition and research. He advocates for a plant-based (vegan) diet which is one that completely eliminates all dairy in one's consumption of food. Dairy, as research has seen, is highly acidic to the human body. He has been identified as medical adviser to the radical animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

  • David Wolfe | Raw Live Food (& Superfood) Advocate

    I came to find Mr. David Wolfe after being referred to him from other researchers on raw live foods and nutrition. I eventual became interested enought to purchase and read a few of his books including, but not limited to, The Sunfood Diet Success System, which I found to be one of the best books on the subject of "superfoods" out in the world. What is a "superfood?" A superfood is basically a food that encompasses a complete nutrient source all in one. For example, the Egyptians centered their "superfood" on the sacred Aloe Vera plant, the Polynesians had the Noni fruit, the Chinese had the Gogi Berry, the Inca Shamans had the Macca Root, and the South Amercian Shamans had the cacao bean (actually it is a nut botanically speaking). These foods are incredibly packed with innate nutrients that can "superfeed" the body. I consider David Wolfe an expert on this subject and you can tell he really enjoys what he is doing which is great to see - also, I believe he is helping folks change their lives for the better to become more responsible for their daily diet choices. Check him out to find out more information about what he has to say about raw (live) foods and radiant health.

  • Daniel Vitalis | Health Advocate & Offering Great Health Products

    I found Mr. Daniel Vitalis on-line after seeing some of his videos that center on health through his own unique insight on it. He has a company named "surthrival" that can be found at www.surthrival.com that offer some really unique products. I find Mr. Vitalis very sincere, insightful and enthusiastic in helping folks. This is one of the reasons why I include him on my resource page. He is an advocate of a Vegan diet (with certain exceptions) and encourages folks to increase their daily intake of organic natural live foods (fruits and vegetables) and medicinal mushrooms like Chaga and Reishi (the King and Queen of forest mushrooms). Check him out to get more information to help you in your search of alternative means to "surthrive" in today's environment with his unique health perspectives.

  • Killing Cancer - Not People book | Amazon Book Reviews

    This linked resource goes to the Amazon.com customer reviews of Mr. Robert G. Wright's book entitled Killing Cancer - Not People which is the second edition of his book that focuses on how the body is really a self-healing maching as long as it is given the correct environmental circumstances to thrive physically. The books helps the reader take responsibility for himself or herself to participate in their own recovery once given a cancer diagnosis. He provides thoughtful insights and personal experience and makes recommendations on what he would do if he was given a "big C" (cancer) diagnosis. This is a must read for any cancer patient and I wanted to provide as a possible resouced link on my website to help those simply looking for more information on-line to educate themselves in making an informed decision on a cancer diagnosis.

  • Dan MacDonald the "Life Regenerator"

    Dan MacDonald is known as the "Life Regenerator" in the "Raw Food" movement. Dan came on the scene a few years back with his unique youtube videos that discusses exclusively the ingestion of raw fruits, vegetables, aromatic herbs (parsley, cilantro, etc.) and soaked nuts and seeds as the main staple of your diet. He also advocates the use of rebounding and does a great job explaining how the cleaner you are in the inside, the cleaner you are on the outside. Becoming a raw vegan has its challenges and Dan has been there time and time again in his many videos (over a 1000 on his youtube channel "liferegenerator") explaining what you can do to better yourself in staying on the raw vegan path. Ultimately, it really becomes a spiritual journey. I have enjoyed Dan's enthusiasm, his raw food recipies, and his simple message: "you are what you eat."
