Unity ...

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.

something new can be intimidating
and sometimes we are afraid
but if we do not try to do better.
what progress will be made?

Lung Cancer Higher in Slaughterhouse Workers

Nobel Prize winner finds that long-term exposure to meat pathogens increases risk of rare forms of lung cancer.

New research presented this week at the World Conference on Lung Cancer in Austria by keynote speaker Harald Zur Hausen, MD found that exposure to and consumption of meat increases the risk of contracting lung cancer. Dr. Hausen—a Nobel Prize recipient for his work in connecting the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) with increased cancer risk—is currently researching the causes of lung cancer in patients who do not smoke, to determine the links between cancer and other factors such as diet. His findings indicate that slaughterhouse workers, butchers, and others exposed to animal carcasses, inhale oncogenic viruses—or viruses that can lead to cancer cell formation. Additionally, he found that consuming pathogens through animal products—including bovine milk—can also prove carcinogenic for humans. For context, Dr. Hausen focused on India, where smoking is prevalent but the consumption of animal products is not. “In India, there is one type of meat that is not being consumed, and that is beef,” Dr. Hausen said. “India has the lowest rate of colon cancer globally, and a relatively low rate of lung cancer as well.” Last year, the World Health Organization reclassified processed meat into the same carcinogenic category as tobacco.

orcas dream

we dream of oceans,
not swimming pools.
where we can live by
our own,
not human
rules.
we dream of our pods.
our unbreakable bonds,
that spread over the seas,
and far beyond.

across the bridge, there is a room
for the forever lost and majestic
tilikum.
a space where he and others like him
can at last swim free.
safe and far from the inhumane
in humanity.
we mourn your loss yet this
we know,
your suffering is now over.
you are where angels go.
rest in peace
while we here on
the earth below.
fight for those in
captivity
NO MORE CETACEANS
IN
SHOWS!!!!

Preview above

See full documentary for free HERE (available in five languages)

Source Tribe of Heart

Background

Five farmers, two animal rescuers, and a cow named Snickers will make you laugh and cry, expand your consciousness, and challenge your ideas about animal farming. Open your eyes. Trust your heart. Take the journey.

Can 78 minutes change the way you see the world? If you are like the thousands of people who wrote on post-viewing comment cards about the deep effect this film had on them, or like the hundreds of others who were moved enough to organize a screening in their own community, then the answer is YES.

How You Can Help

Peaceable Holiday:
Join the Global Tribal Revolution

We invite you to join activists and caring individuals around the world in an effort to spread peace and compassion far and wide this holiday season. You can be part of the Global Tribal revolution by watching and sharing Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home, or any other of Tribe of Heart’s feature documentaries and short films that are now freely available through our new Global Tribal Cinema web site.

Check out our Faceboook invitation which makes it easy for you to reach out to your friends and include them in this effort!

Make a Contribution

Donate HERE

Community support, in all its forms, is instrumental to our ability to deliver non-commercial, life-altering social justice projects which empower everyday people to become part of creating a wave of positive change.

Your donation today will help us complete our new film, LEGACY, support our further development and teaching of the path of holistic nonviolence, and allow us to continue to expand our message across more languages and cultures. Please join us!

Looking Ahead

New Film

In the months to come, we will be sharing more about holistic nonviolence and about our new film in progress. LEGACY, currently in post-production, explores the inclusive vision of justice held by individuals who have spent a lifetime immersed in the struggle of conscience. Each in their own way has sought to understand the common underlying causes of multiple issues of justice, from war between humans to wars that humans wage against members of others species; from prejudice and racism to speciesism; from environmental devastation to experimentation carried out without the subject’s consent.

 

New Languages

During 2017, will also be expanding the content and range of languages that our films and projects are offered in through Global Tribal Cinema. We have now developed the methods and technology needed to bring the message of holistic nonviolence into any language in a cost-effective and timely manner. Our initial launch in five languages is just the beginning. With your help we are going to make this message of hope not only understandable and accessible to the majority of people on our planet, but also bring its existence into the awareness of as many individuals as possible.

year out

year out

the years so quickly
accumulate
yet for the end of
each day,
the minutes await.

it goes for those
of us who pray
or those who
choose another
way.

what will be as the
hourglass spins
the earth on its axis
on storms from
within.

will the mysteries
that follow
the path of unknown.
tears empty hearts
hollow
for sins we atone.

we sit on our haunches
poised for the battle
our questions not asked
or unanswered
dull sabers, not rattled.

the sun spirits call us
we open our eyes
a new world waits
filled with joy and
surprise.

and in that moment
of clarity sublime
and near
we sit quietly thankful
that we are still here.
