We Can't Wait! - WHY???

There are 1,000 preterm births/DAY in the US alone--fully 1/2 or 500 BIRTHS/DAY could be prevented!

Every year, there are about 250,000 NEW cases of breast cancer in the US... 1/2 of those could be prevented--125,000 women and, some men, would not have to get this disease.

Please help us STOP the culture of disease treatment and help move our society to a culture of HEALTH and PREVENTION. According to research done by Dr. William Grant, fully 35% of US healthcare costs could be saved by vitamin D alone.

GrassrootsHealth is a non-profit research and public health organization specifically engaged in moving research into practice NOW! with the tools and methods we have developed--not taking 30 years after it's been proven. We provide education, research and full implementation services not only to individuals but to large institutions.

We have just demonstrated, and published in a peer reviewed journal, that you can change the standard of care in a large hospital setting for ALL pregnant women in only TWO years--and, you can demonstrate that 40-60% of preterm births can indeed be prevented by only using vitamin D--safely for all.

Please join our We Can't Wait Action Campaign with your donation today to help us work with other hospitals, with cancer centers--they already have a sense of urgency, they only need us to come help them implement the Decision Support system, the education and internal practices to be successful. In order to do this, we need your financial support--you can help prevent this disease with your donation. 

We have 3 hospitals waiting to replicate this two-year pregnancy project. More lives will be affected, more learning will occur, and, more action will be expected throughout the country. 

Their implementation will need $1M to start all three hospitals. Right now your donation can go twice as far thanks to a matching offer from Dr. Mercola - all personal contributions will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. Please donate here

In addition to working with these new hospitals, I am traveling around the country to talk with concerned citizens, connectors in their community - people who are working to change our healthcare from one of disease treatment to one of disease prevention. We are c reating local teams to help HEALTH become the focus.
 
Our first event is next week in San Diego on August 16th. Would you like to sponsor an event near you? Do you know of a connector or philanthropist who would like to help? We are planning to initiate some community participation events in the near future. Contact us now if you have any ideas for things you'd like to do/help organize.

Lives truly do depend on it.

Thank you so much for your action! It matters!

Onwards!

How to Turn One Hospital Initiative into a World-Wide Action Plan

How does GrassrootsHealth take research, the consensus of 48 scientists, and a successful two-year study and replicate it across the US and gain world-wide acceptance? We are not content with waiting 30 years for vitamin D to be adopted into the standard of care - mothers are not waiting, cancer patients will not wait, we won't wait! We want to expand our proven project to groups that are ready now.
Vitamin D Testing Reduces Healthcare Costs

The researchers in this study knew that vitamin D deficiency could lead to chronic ailments, which in turn increases health care costs. The Veterans Administration is interested not only in the health of their veterans, but also in the reduced costs associated with fewer visits to the VA, and less disease.
