S.T.U.N., the NEA and Atkins, and New Goods.
Bobby Alt and his bandmates in S.T.U.N. have been busy this summer. With the hectic schedule of Warped Tour, as well as an all new solo album, it’s surprising that Bobby even had the time to work with peta2. Somehow he managed to squeeze us in to make an awesome trading card and to record a PSA. Now, to add to all of that, we’re giving you a chance to win tons of free stuff from S.T.U.N., Vision, Hoven.

The National Education Association, the largest organization of educators in the United States, has announced that it’s teaming up with the fad “Atkins” diet to promote so-called “sound nutrition”.
With Atkins’ new deal to underwrite the NEA’s nutrition and exercise efforts, the public can be assured that parents, kids, and teachers will be inundated with “low-carb” messages promoting meat and other fatty foods. Low-carb diets have been condemned by health organizations worldwide, including the American Heart Association, because they often lead to high cholesterol levels and other problems. The Atkins diet also undermines efforts to promote healthy, plant-based diets, which offer students sound nutrition based on meals that are low in fat and cholesterol-free.
Click here and let the NEA know how outraged you are that they have sold out to the dangerous fad-diet industry.
