Animal Wellness Action Says the Global Trade in Bear Parts Must End

Bear Protection Act

Bear Protection Act

Group Applauds Reps. Lieu, Davis, Kuster, Glenn Thompson and Mike Thompson for Introducing the Bear Protection Act

With China’s Ministry of Health announcing that bear bile is an acceptable treatment for COVID-19 patients, we are one major outbreak away from a spike in demand from bile from bears. ”

— Wayne Pacelle

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, April 2, 2021 / — Today, Animal Wellness Action applauded lawmakers for introducing legislation to stop the exploitation of bears, seeking to end the killing of the animals for their bile and gall bladders. Representatives Ted Lieu, D-Calif.; Rodney Davis, R-Ill., Ann Kuster, D-N.H., Glenn Thompson, R-Penn., and Mike Thompson, D-Calif.., introduced the Bear Protection Act, H.R. 2325, to crack down on the global trafficking of bear parts, months after China’s Ministry of Health announced that it considered bear bile an effective palliative treatment for patients suffering from COVID-19.

Bear bill is obtained for use mainly in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is sourced from bear “farms” in China and Vietnam — where the animals are housed in concrete pits and “milked” for the bodily fluid – and by killing bears from the wild. There are eight species of bears in the world, most of them threatened or endangered, and once gall bladders are extracted from the body of a bear, they are visually indistinguishable in terms of species type.

The Bear Protection Act would forbid any interstate transport or sales of bear galls and other viscera and forbid any imports or exports of these body parts. It does not restrict legal hunting of bears or use of their parts for trophies.

“We shouldn’t be killing rhinos for their horns, elephants for their tusks, or bears for their gall bladders,” said Wayne Pacelle, founder of Animal Wellness Action. “With China’s Ministry of Health announcing that bear bile is an acceptable treatment for COVID-19 patients, we are one major outbreak away from a spike in demand from bile from bears. Cruelty and killing would be the downstream effects should that scenario play out.”

“As a proud member of the Animal Protection Caucus, I am horrified that bears in the United States are being poached for their internal organs,” said Rep. Ann Kuster (NH-02). “The demand for these organs has already devastated bear populations in Asia, and we must protect our iconic bear populations in the United States from illegal poaching. I am pleased to join my colleagues to re-introduce this legislation that will proactively protect our bears by banning the trade and transport of these bear organs.”

“As an avid sportsman and conservationist, I am shocked by the harvesting gallbladders from bears. This is inhumane and we must end the illicit trade of bear organs,” said Rep. Glenn “GT” Thompson (PA-15). “Bears are magnificent creatures — even when they invade our backyard apiary in rural Pennsylvania – and we must ensure the longevity of the species by protecting them from this senseless practice,” added Thompson.

“This legislation will proactively help protect dwindling bear population in our country and ensure they are around for future generations,” said Rep. Rodney Davis (IL-13). “I am proud to join my colleagues to bring an end to the inhumane practice of poaching and selling bear parts.”

Across the United States, bears and cubs are killed by poachers who take only their gallbladders, and sometimes their paws, leaving the rest of the bear behind. The gallbladders are easy to conceal and fetch a high price (exceeding $1,000 per gallbladder) due to their use in some traditional Chinese medicine.

The trade is heavily centralized in China and South Korea, where bears are farmed for their bile in what amounts to a horror show – bears are kept in small cages for years with a tube inserted directly into their gallbladder to obtain bile, often until the bear dies from the effects of this invasive and dangerous process. Asian Bear populations in the wild are imperiled, while other species of bears throughout the world face threats from the trade in their parts and the effects of other human activities.

There are 40 states have laws on the books to address this trade, revealing the emerging consensus to address this problem. The Bear Protection Act is needed to make a global statement about the trade from the United States and to address gaps or inconsistencies in state laws. A trafficker in Colorado may face up to three years in prison and a $100,000 fine, while a trafficker in Kentucky may receive only a $100 fine. Federal sentencing guidelines dictate that the market value of the item must be at least $350 for a prosecution under the federal Lacey Act, but the courts attribute the value of a gallbladder to only $280.

These House lawmakers introduced this same legislation last year, and also in 2020, Senators John Kennedy, R-La., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., introduced a companion bill. A Senate bill is forthcoming.

It’s not a new issue in the Congress. In past years, Rep. Raul Grijalva, now the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, introduced similar legislation several years ago, as did U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell. McConnell’s bill passed the Senate twice, but it was not acted upon by the House.

The bill has a broad range of endorsing organization, including the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies, and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

The Center for a Humane Economy (“the Center”) is a non-profit organization that focuses on influencing the conduct of corporations to forge a humane economic order. The first organization of its kind in the animal protection movement, the Center encourages businesses to honor their social responsibilities in a culture where consumers, investors, and other key stakeholders abhor cruelty and the degradation of the environment and embrace innovation as a means of eliminating both.

Florida’s Premier Hemp Extracts Manufacturer Sir Hemp Co. Introduces Line Extension With Its CBD Candy & CBD RSO Oil

Sir Hemp Company's line extension will bring a new variety of products to its CBD line of all-natural hemp extracts; Sugar-free CBD Candy and RSO Oil

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, April 2, 2021 / — Sir Hemp Company's line extension will bring a new variety of products to its CBD line of all-natural hemp extracts oils.

Florida's Premier Hemp Extracts Manufacturer Sir Hemp Co. introduces line extension with its CBD Candy & CBD RSO Oil. "We want to give our customers a choice. What better way than a sugar-free CBD candy, and an extremely high potency RSO oil?", said Sir Hemp Co.'s Founder & President, Alfredo Cernuda.

For over a year now, Sir Hemp Company has offered its customers quality CBD oil for sale direct to customers via its website. Its initial offering was a high potency full spectrum CBD of 3600mg to an equally potent version that was completely THC Free of CBD Isolate. They follow-up adhering to high potency CBD products with a Florida orange oil CBD extract. This did not stop the West Palm Beach, Florida based Sir Hemp Co. team in developing additional all-natural products.

The founder said, "I take in all feedback, both good and bad, then make decisions based on what the customer requests. With Sir Hemp, we try to make you feel like family. After all, we are a family-owned business.", said Mr. Cernuda. "We received so much feedback on not only introducing a CBD hard candy, but a sugar-free one at that. So, it made sense for us to offer our full spectrum hemp extract CBD in sugar-free hard lozenges".

Prior to Sir Hemp's introduction of its sugar-free candy the alternative was CBD gummies. CBD gummies were not practical in all situations given its gelatinous nature. If you are looking for CBD gummies, their CBD hard candy alternative made from full spectrum CBD oil is a wonderful choice. It is a sugar-free CBD candy made from full spectrum hemp CBD oil with an all-natural peppermint oil. Each candy contains a highly potent serving of 30mg. Each bag contains a total of 12 candies for 360mg of CBD. Unlike CBD gummies, which can take up to an hour or more to feel the affects, Sir Hemps, high potency CBD hard candy takes minutes!

The founder’s approach is to establish a direct relationship with the customer which not only lead to the company’s introduction of CBD candy, but also an RSO oil. Sir Hemp Co. made a groundbreaking introduction by formulating an all-natural RSO oil containing a high concentration of CBD. "Traditionally RSO was manufactured from the marijuana plant containing high levels of delta-9 THC, the psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Industrial hemp on the other hand is bred to contain low levels of THC and high levels of CBD. The levels must be less than 0.3% of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in order to meet Federal and State guidelines, therefore Sir Hemp's RSO CBD will not get you ‘high’. You will benefit from RSO oils potency and take advantage of all cannabinoids working synergistically, known as the "Entourage Effect."

Sir Hemp’s RSO comes with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) verifiable via a QR Code on each product packaging. Test are conducted at an independent ISO-Certified & USDA approved third party lab. Test for RSO includes potency of various cannabinoids, test for heavy metals, residual solvents, pathogenic microbiology, and pesticides. Ensuring its CBD oil concentrate is quality and safe for use. “You should not use any CBD products if they do not contain a QR code linking to its lab test. Your CBD store or manufacture should be transparent in what they sell. At our company (Sir Hemp) all CBD oils, CBD edibles, and CBD concentrates we manufacture have a QR code linking to its third-party lab test," proudly said the founder.

Adherence to absolute quality and transparency is the reason why Sir Hemp Co.’s owners choose the motto: 'CBD The Right Way' ™. Since its inception Sir Hemp has stood by that motto. Over a year later they continue to craft quality CBD oil for sale crafted in small batches from 100% U.S.A. grown hemp. Sir Hemp manufactures various hemp extracts, ranging from Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil, consisting of organic industrial hemp extract containing all-natural cannabinoids found in the hemp plant including high potency CBD as well as other minor cannabinoids including THC, to Isolate hemp CBD oil containing only CBD for those who prefer a CBD only product.

More information, including educational information about CBD can be found on their website.

Farm to Table Online Grocery Store

Farm to Table Online Grocery Store

As society advances, people no longer need to set foot inside a grocery store. Get the guide to online grocery shopping in Vancouver here.

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, April 1, 2021 / — With or without the pandemic, online grocery shopping will definitely become a trend in 2021 and beyond. In fact, a recent survey shows that 86% of Canadians would like their groceries delivered to their homes.

That's a significant percentage of the population who is interested in click-and-deliver.

If you live in the Vancouver area, then you have a lot of options to contend with. That's great because it means the online grocery shopping in Vancouver will need to innovate to get more of the market share.

The winner in all this is you, the customer.

Read on to see what are your options when online grocery shopping in Vancouver, and what are the various delivery fees.

Instacart – Hire a Shopper to Grocery Shop for You
The first option you are probably going to look at is Instacart. It's so convenient because you can hire someone to go grocery shopping for you.

You get a shopper assigned to you, depending on the delivery times, and slots you requested.

Depending on your requests, the shopper will go out into the grocery store, like Wal-mart, Loblaws, T&T, Superstore and select your groceries, pay for them, and deliver them to you.

The positive aspect here is that you get a real live human who's experienced at grocery shopping, picking the best produce and items for you.

The hard thing about this is that you are choosing slots for delivery, which means that if you don't order in advance, you might end up with an undesirable slot.

Ensure that you add in as many instructions as you can. Also, if you can give your shopper alternatives to your list, that would be ideal.

The delivery fee for Instacart is $3.99 for same-day orders over $35.

Amazon Fresh Does Grocery Delivery Through Whole Foods
There are 13 Whole Foods stores in Canada, 7 in Ontario, and 6 in British Columbia. This is what Amazon Fresh leverages when they deliver fresh groceries to customers in Toronto and Vancouver.

Amazon will offer produce, dairy, and frozen food through this online grocery shopping method.

With a prime membership (which is $79 a year), you can get one- and two-hour membership delivery services.

Specific Grocery Stores Do Their Own Delivery as Well
Grocery stores West Vancouver like the ones below do their own grocery delivery and can be helpful if you prefer the brands or the items that come from a particular store.

Save-On-Foods (minimum order value of $40)
Kiki's (free delivery on orders over $30)
Spud (free delivery on orders over $99)
Stongs (minimum order of $50 and $10.99 for delivery)
Farm to Table Market (minimum order of $60 and free delivery)
If you have already been visiting these stores for grocery shopping, then this makes your decision even easier.

One of the issues with online grocery shopping in Vancouver is that currently due to the influx of customers, many stores are running out of stock. But that's a temporary situation, to be sure.

Prepared Meals Delivered to Your Door in Vancouver
If you are the kind of person who loves eating home-cooked meals, but doesn't actually want to spend time making the meal, then prepared meals delivered to your door are the ticket.

The great thing about prepared meals is that you don't have to sacrifice taste, or health when ordering such meals. They are chockfull of delicious, and nutritious ingredients that will skyrocket your productivity and energy.

There are many such delivery services in Vancouver that you could avail yourself of.

Meals on Wheels
Fed Fed Fed
Farm to Table Market
If you are concerned about the efficacy of ordering prepared meals, try them out once or twice, and then compare them to your home-cooked meals.

Not only will you save time with these prepared meals, but you will also save on costs, especially since some prepared meal options use top-notch ingredients, spices, and herbs that you wouldn't have in your pantry.

The Unique Offering of Farm to Table Market
The brilliant thing about using Farm to Table Market for your prepared meals and grocery needs is that they source a lot of their products locally!

You might be concerned about the environmental implications of transporting food from all over the world to Vancouver, the number of resources wasted, the manpower required, and such.

This is called your food footprint and it matters.

Everyone wants to take care of their health and eat nutritious foods, but not at the cost of Mother Earth and the environment. Going green isn't a cool thing to do anymore, it's a necessity to sustain life beyond our generation.

That's where Farm to Table Market comes in. They scour local vendors, growers and farmers, constantly searching for fresh, nutritious, and unique products, to share with you.

This ensures that everything you buy from them is a quality product.

This is not to say that this will limit you and your foodie senses in any way. You will still be able to completely please your culinary needs, take care of your health, and ensure a bright future for the next generation of Canadians.

There is an art and a science to selecting the best growers, knowing what the food's personality is like, and when to pick them and bring them into the store. It isn't as simple as it might sound.

Put your trust in Farm to Table Market as they have been doing this for 8 years now, ever since they began in a quiet Ambleside Park neighbourhood.

There Are Many Options for Online Grocery Shopping in Vancouver
Online grocery shopping in Vancouver keeps on expanding and growing as the demands of customers like you keep transforming.

The main thing for you to remember is that there is no need to sacrifice your palate and health when you are using your credit card to do grocery delivery.

As long as you plan 24-48 hours in advance, and remember to stick to your favourites, you will do fine.

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Men’s Health Network

CONTACT: Brandon Ross

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Men’s Health Network (MHN) is joining with other health organizations to recognize April as Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, with a common goal of raising awareness amongst men, boys, healthcare providers, and communities across the globe.

Although testicular cancer is relatively rare, it’s the most common form of cancer in young men ages 15-35. This year, more than 9.400 new cases will be diagnosed in the United States, and more than 400 will die, according to the American Cancer Society.

The good news is that if testicular cancer is caught early, the survival rate is 95%. That’s why MHN encourages all young men ages 15-35 to perform testicular self-exams on a regular basis, and if they feel a lump or bump, to head to a doctor immediately.

“Young men need to be aware that they are not invincible, and cancer is not ‘an old person's disease,’" said Ana Fadich-Tomsic, MPH, CHES, Vice President of Men’s Health Network. “Testicular cancer affects young men, and if caught early, is curable. We recommend parents talk to their sons about the importance of annual check-ups and testicular self-exams. If you notice a lump/bump that wasn't there before, make an appointment to see your healthcare provider and get it checked.”

As with other diagnoses, it’s unclear where (or how) the COVID-19 pandemic will affect testicular cancer, but delaying a visit to the doctor once you feel a lump or bump because you’re afraid of going to a doctor’s office can put you at greater risk of cancer spreading beyond the testicles.

“I would still encourage individuals with concerns to go in and take proper precautions,” said Dr. David Gremilion, a member of the MHN Board of Directors and retired professor at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. “We know that social distancing, masking, and hand hygiene, works. So, I would encourage anyone who is in a high-risk group or have a lump in the testis should definitely go in and get checked.”

Alongside a coalition of partners and participants, MHN will be bringing the conversation to a mass audience as we will be hosting a Twitter Chat on Wednesday, April 21 at 2 p.m. EST to promote testicular cancer awareness.

Testicular Cancer Awareness Month is a great time for young men to start doing genital self-exams, but don’t stop there. Do those exams every month. For more information on testicular cancer and other men’s health issues, please visit and
