Research shows that there is a strong correlation between the opportunity to have a healthy snack, breakfast and lunch. Could there be a link in the decline of Russell's test scores and the post pandemic meals that have been provided? Healthy food choicesRead more
Let's make healthy healthy
As a busy mum of two, I want to make sure that my kids grow up healthy and happy.
So, I really try hard to make sure that I feed my kids foods that are healthy, which can girls large amounts of sugar and other nasties in foods that claimed to be “healthy” and used are facing now.
How do we fix this? The great news is that it really isn't that hard to make “healthy” healthy! With your help we can make real change.
All we are asking the government to do is:
Glyphosate BAN Petition
Glyphosate herbicides or Monsanto's RoundUp weed killer, the most widely used herbicide in history, has recently been proven to cause serious harm to life. Glyphosate has contaminated our planet, and is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food and water.
In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization found that glyphosate “is a probable human carcinogen”.
In July of 2017 the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added glyphosate to its prop 65 list of known carcinogens.
In October of 2017, after over 1 million Europeans requested a ban, 72% of the Members of the European Parliament voted to BAN glyphosate and EU Member states have refused to renew the license.
Sri Lanka and the Six Gulf States (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) and Malta have banned glyphosate. Many others are in the process of doing so. France has banned glyphosate in public parks immediately and will phase out the use of glyphosate herbicides in agriculture and landscaping use over the next 5 years completely. We ask our great state of Wyoming to protect our citizens as well. Many school districts and cities in the United States have already discontinued the use of glyphosate.
Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and a cause of liver disease. Global studies show that we are routinely exposed to dangerous levels of glyphosate. Thousands of citizens in Wyoming come in contact with glyphosate daily. The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that our children are the most vulnerable to pesticides, we need to take action to protect the future of our state.
Over 1000 Americans are currently suing Monsanto, the manufacturer of glyphosate herbicides, for non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. The Department of Justice is investigating Monsanto for corruption, cover-ups, and collusion with the EPA in relation to the carcinogenic effects of glyphosate.
Please join the Moms Across America, Organic Consumers Association, Institute for Responsible Technology, Thinking Moms Revolution, and thousands of others in ridding our state of glyphosate by signing the petition below:

some of you may have seen me talking about healthy living and conscious eating with Ellen Degeneres America’s favorite restaurant chains for everyone to enjoy? Healthy living should be about progress, not can come from fast food giant McDonald's adding a healthy, plant-based item to the menu in the United States. Truly, there can be something for everyone!
Please sign my petition to support adding a healthy, meatless option at McDonald's.Read more
Stress, Burnouts and Sleeplessness. Almost every working Indian has faced these symptoms at one point in their life.
The reason: Persistent urge to respond to calls and office emails throughout the day, and even on weekends and holidays because of work pressure.
I am worried. There is a serious health condition that is rapidly affecting lakhs of urban working Indians, like you and me: people who use smartphones with high-speed data to stay connected to work 24/7.
And no one seems to be taking notice. Most companies on paper say they have atet 8 to 9 hour working day. But the truth is they make employees work way beyond that, including weekends.
Those among us who complain about a disturbed work-life balance will truly get what “telepressure” means. Those who consistently work more than 60 hours a week and well past 9pm are the worst-affected.
I decided to do something about this modern-day illness when I read a World Economic Forum report.
I’ve started this campaign asking all political parties to make the #RightToDisconnect a reality for every working Indian. Sign my petition.
It is our right to lead happy, stress-free lives.
I had introduced a Bill in Parliament on 28th December 2018 and am determined to see it through because it will transform the system. Here are some of the most important points in the bill
respects the personal space of the employees by recognising their right to disconnect and not respond to their employer’s calls, emails etc., during out-of-work hours.
takes into consideration the competitive needs of the companies and their diverse work cultures.
entitles an employee to overtime pay if s/he is made to work in out-of-work hours
mandates company to explicitly lay out their out-of-work demands from their employees, giving employees a chance to either choose to work or enforce their right to disconnect.
provides for constitution of Employees’ Welfare Committees at every company to assist the employees in negotiations with employers.
imposes penalties on companies that fail to respect an employee’s right to disconnect after office hours
provides for counselling services to increase awareness among employees and citizens on the reasonable use of digital and communication tools, for professional and personal use; as well as for digital detox centres.
I truly believe that the #RightToDisconnect is an issue that connects us all. Because at the end of the day we want some time to just be ourselves.
Be it with our family, friends, pets or by ourselves curled up with a book, or watching a movie without those annoying messages from the office.
My party, the Nationalist Congress Party, is already committed to making #RightToDisconnect a reality. Sign my petition today so as to get all political parties to act on this.
As a Member of Parliament, I urge the citizens to share their feedback and recommendations to improve the provisions of this Bill. Please park your comments or feedback on this Bill here on my online petition and also on my twitter handle @supriya_sule with the hashtags #RTD #RightToDisconnect.
