• Beyond the Bisphenol-A and melamine scandals we've already witnessed, 2009 will see yet another food contaminant chemical surface, possibly a solvent chemical or some other food processing element. The FDA will once again declare it to be perfectly safe.

• The raw foods movement will continue to grow, but it will shift away from its hippy drug-culture past and move into more mainstream circles where the term, "plant-based diet" will be used.

• More studies on Vitamin D will tout the incredible health benefits of the nutrient, but the American Cancer Society and the AMA will continue to avoid recommending it as a way to prevent cancer, since the cancer industry is so incredibly lucrative.

• Municipal water fluoridation will meet with increasing resistance in 2009 as better-educated citizens fight back against mandatory fluoridation policies. Fluoride proponents, of course, will continue their efforts to poison the population, relying on disinformation and false authority to try to crush dissent.

• Well-known freedom personalities like Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, the Health Ranger and others will continue to be attacked on public message boards by covert workers who are paid for each negative post. It's now a well-known fact that most of the negative comments directed at freedom champions are the result of a well-funded internet disinformation campaign that pays people to post negative comments on message boards, news aggregation sites and in article comments. Virtually all the hatred directed towards Alex Jones, for example, is fabricated. (You don't think the enemies of freedom play fair, do you? They have HUGE budgets and lots of free time to pollute the internet with false information...)

Moxxor, the direct sales company that makes a potent marine omega-3 oil supplement, will reach 10,000 distributors. It is currently at 2,500, which has happened only since early October. NaturalNews is an active member of Moxxor. See

• Monavie, one of the most successful direct sales health product companies, will actually see a decline in total membership due to the widespread availability of competing, lower-cost acai berry juices. The company won't disappear, but it will begin trending downward unless it can reinvigorate its product line with something new and exciting. Its flagship product was once new and exciting, but now acai berries are hardly exotic. Even its most recent product, Monavie Pulse is hardly exciting. Plant sterols? That's it?

• Speaking of direct sales companies, I anticipate a surge with ShopToEarn / ShopToEarth, which is an affiliate portal through which members get paid multi-tier affiliate commissions when others shop for health products like Dr. Bronner's soap, Nutiva hemp seeds, Delicious Greens superfoods and many others. It's a no-brainer organization that's easy to join and easy to introduce to others, since nobody has to buy anything new. Contact or call Suzy at 209-710-8299 to learn more.

• The FDA will be sued over its censorship of truthful health claims for nutritional supplements. Although I can't predict the outcome of such a lawsuit, the very idea of it taking place is significant. It will be the first time the People begin fighting back against the oppression of the U.S. government's Food and Drug Administration.

• The ocean's dead zones will continue to spread as pesticides, agricultural fertilizers and pharmaceuticals continue polluting the waterways. Expect the number of ocean dead zones to grow by another 5% in 2009.

• Massive health care reform efforts will be underway in 2009, but real reform laws won't be passed until 2010 or later. A universal care system where the government pays for all health care won't be passed. Rather, it will be some sort of compromised hybrid system that keeps health insurance companies profitable and employers penniless. In other words, the new reforms will be nothing more than a new rip-off that puts money into the hands of the ultra rich while soaking working-class citizens with higher taxes and higher costs of employment (which translate into lower wages). Expect to see mandatory health insurance laws put in place, turning you into a criminal if you don't buy expensive health insurance.
