During the first three hours, filmmaker and writer Kenny Ausubel spoke about medical and environmental solutions drawn from nature. In a book and documentary, he delved into the life and work of Harry Hoxsey, who promoted a cure for cancer, based on herbal formulas inherited from his great-grandfather. While the Hoxsey cure had its adherents (in the 1950s, their clinics treated thousands), the AMA unfairly branded it as fraudulent, he detailed. Though the alternative treatment was eventually drummed out of the US, a Hoxsey clinic in Tijuana currently sees cancer patients.
Ausubel, who co-founded 'Seeds of Change,' an organic seed company, discussed the importance of bio-diversity-- by having different types of a specific crop, it will be more likely to survive different climate conditions, he said. His organization, Bioneers, finds environmental solutions via biological methods-- for example, they used mushrooms to improve soil quality and digest toxic gas.
Appearing in Leonardo DiCaprio's new feature documentary about the environment, The 11th Hour, Ausubel said he also served as a central advisor to the project.
Appearing during the first half-hour, Jerome Corsi, the author of The Late Great U.S.A., reported on the North American summit meeting held in Quebec. Pres. Bush charged that anyone concerned that Mexico, Canada and the U.S. were advancing a North American Union agenda was a "conspiracy theorist." For more, see Corsi's article for WorldNetDaily.
