US citizens – Demand the right to know what’s in your food

Think your food labels are complete and honest, even if you can’t pronounce 3/4 of the ingredients?  Think again.  GMOs (genetically modified organisms) developed by Monsanto and proven to cause cancer and other DNA alterations are not required by the FDA to be labeled.

This video does a great job to illustrate the point.  Just don’t let the issue drop there.  After going here to tell Pres. Obama to cut all ties between the FDA and Monsanto, take another moment to write your representatives from the bottom up.  Let them know that not only are you fed up with Monsanto contaminating and controlling our food supply, but that as a human being you have a right to know what is in your food.  It is about time the US caught up with the rest of the world on this matter.

Lastly, do not forget to share your concerns with local grocery stores, family, and facebook friends and tweeters.

11 yo homeschooler takes on Monsanto

Nationwide, homeschoolers are rising to wake up our citizens and politicians to behind the scenes corruption in our biggest industries that affect everyone’s daily lives.  Today, we salute 11 yr old Birke Baehr from the Asheville region of NC who does a phenomenal job to prove that homeschoolers are not isolated in social bubbles, but are ready to even take center-stage to get their points across when necessary.

I used to want to be a NFL player.  Now, I want to be an organic farmer so that I can make a bigger impact on this world.  — Birke Baehr, 11

Here he takes on Monsanto – the industrial farming conglomerate with deep ties to the FDA.

Quality not quantity counts – even with fruits & vegetables

1st I want you to consider a few truths regarding the FDA guidelines or RDA [recommended dietary allowance] of vitamins, minerals, and food group portions demonstrated by the colorful My Food Plate and its predecessor the Food Pyramid.  While the plate does give fruits and vegetables a more prominent division of our diet than grains, it still gives grains a 25% allocation to your meals.  The Food Pyramid had recommended a gargantuan 9-11 servings of carbohydrates in a single day.

Food industry monopolist Monsanto has had their hand in the FDA for a long time.  Grains are cheap to produce & are added to foods like meat that we’d never consider to examine.  They also cause cows to develop e-coli.  Monsanto has “poisoned the water hole” so to speak by putting cancerous chemicals in our food supply, sued family farmers when their own Frankenstein seed contaminated the farmers’ seed, bankrupted many by keeping them in legal limbo, & even caused 1000s of Indian farmers to commit suicide by drinking pesticides.  [click here to tell Pres.

Go here to read Monsanto’s Dark History  (1901 – 2011).

Before my days of behind the scenes nutritional research, back when my kids were toddlers, I would lament how in the world could I fit ~10 healthy carbohydrates a day in & still provide a rich diet of fruits and vegetables.  It became clear quickly that it was an either/or situation.  While I tried to offer a fruit at each breakfast, then at least 1 if not 2 veggies at lunch, 2-3 vegetables at dinner, cushioned with at least 1 fruit snack throughout the day, affordability often gave way to dependence on grains.  At least I did use oatmeal as our mainstay rather than pre-packaged cookies and cakes.  Now if I can just track down organic oatmeal…

When it came to my selection of fruits I relied on unsweetened applesauce, oranges, bananas, and canned varieties.  Wow, have I come a long way, baby.  Out of my choices at least half of them were just plain sorry.  I will give bananas a bit of credit since the 1g of fat in each does help provide their developing brains and nervous system with the fatty protective myelin sheath that insulates nerves.  While it is famous for potassium, it turns out to be an inferior source compared to raw potatoes, cantaloupe, strawberries, and even raw cacao beans (or dark chocolate if cacao is inaccessible to you).

Oranges were a great source (but are also a choking hazard, so beware – helps to peel the inner white linings off to reveal the raw pulp), but the canned applesauce reported zero nutrients.  FRESH raw apples – including chewing the seeds extra well – are, however, superb choices.  Canned fruit (pineapples, peaches, fruit cocktail) is loaded in corn syrup.

Corn syrup (and corn oil) has been linked as a direct cause of diabetes, obesity, and soaring triglyceride fat levels, and cancer.  Quite simply it is so concentrated that it overloads the pancreas in 1 form & chokes out cell walls in the other.  Our family has come to refer to it as “diabetic juice”  and “cancer Kool-aid.”

Which brings to mind another fact:  raw fruits are better sources than juice for the simple reason that juice contains an overabundance of servings, is not fresh unless juiced yourself, and is pasteurized.  On the flip side, freshly juicing vegetables is the most fantastic way to get your quota in without sore jaws and bloat.  The fact that industrial farms have depleted our soils with pesticide and chemical fertilizer use, as well as picking produce green & shipping it cross-country or world-wide means what you’re eating isn’t as nutritious as it could be.  There is no source more superior than locally grown organic foods.

The following video shows why you should be choosing fruits and vegetables with HIGH antioxidant values.  They reduce inflammation which will help clear your skin, fight disease, and heal worn out cells.  Doing so prevents a milieu of life threatening conditions.

 

MI Mother Loses Custody of Child after Vaccine Reaction/Discontinue Antipsychotic Meds to Turn to Holistic Medicine

I begun following this case first as a mother who was dumbfounded that Michigan mother Maryanne Godboldo was losing custody of her 13 year old daughter and arrested for deciding to discontinue medicating her daughter with risperidone (Risperdal).  Things got dramatic during a police stand off after a court order filed by Child Protective Services [CPS].

Maryanne Godboldo was a dancer before quitting to raise her daughter.  She homeschooled her to give her the space, freedom, and individual attention to flourish in her education without her self esteem taking any hard knocks due to an amputation her daughter had.  She simply did not want her defined by her weakness, but full of her strengths.

As her daughter approached middle school, she asked to try out the public school experience.  Upon enrollment, she was forced to be vaccinated.  Unusual behaviors cropped up immediately.  Maryanne took her to the Children’s Center, a place for at-risk youth.  They instructed her to give her daughter the antipsychotic drug that caused the young teen to get worse.  After seeking a 2nd opinion, she chose holistic treatments.

Now, her 13 yo daughter is in a shelter run by the Children’s Center.  A judge has court-ordered that the Children’s Center discontinue giving her Risperdal.  Since then, an appeal has been filed to reverse the order.  The daughter also has tested positive for a STD.  Tests were taken upon arrival that were negative.  An investigation into sexual abuse at the children’s shelter is underway.

When she tested positive, she was sent to a hospital for 17 hours of treatment and observation.  Her family camped out at the hospital in a peaceful vigil of prayer and unity to make sure that she did not return back to the center.  It didn’t stop them from releasing her back to the same den of emotional isolation away from her loved ones.

Maryanne Godboldo was preparing to finish her degree and teach.  Now, she is facing felonies.  Her daughter was preparing to see what ‘she might be missing out on’ [an often overstated mantra] and is faced with more than any little girl should ever be forced.

I think often people internalize, “Ah – that’s in [insert any state besides home].  What does that have to do with me?  Glad I don’t live there.”  No wonder we seem more like 50 divided states instead of the 50 United States of America.  Bad legislation or enforcement sets a precedent…or rather lowers the bar for the quality of life for all of us.

Besides, who can just stand by without at least acknowledging the issue, talk about it, tweet, share it, and of course…join and “like” the group “I support Maryanne Godboldo“.  Her niece updates it frequently.  The latest news was they are in court trying to regain custody.  The judge is reported to have said that CPS were lowering their standards for reasons to take a child away from their parents.

Scientific Research Proves Vaccines Can Cause Cancer

For all you out there who suggest that the “anti-vaxers” [opposing vaccines] are out to lunch, or want to do your own research before you make a decision to not vaccinate, here is a deluge of credible research to begin.  Heavy stuff, but worth your time.  This is our children, our lives, our future, we’re talking about here.

To Thine Ownself be True ~ pH-at Naturopath 

Scientific evidence of the relationship between cancer and vaccines, as well as stealthy VIRAL pathogens found in vaccines, and the modern day autoimmune conditions that are often caused by 3 out of 8 “dirty” vaccines (not to mention the harmful other ingredients in vaccines):

The FDA has confirmed this by using PCR technology.  3 out of 8 old polio virus vaccine samples were found to have DNA from SCMV [simian cytomegalovirus].  Two studies found an increased risk of cancer among children vaccinated with polio.

Polio vaccines, Simian Virus 40, and human cancer:  the epidemiologic evidence for a causal association

Cancer-causing Vaccines, AIDS, Polio, & Monkey Business

 

Cytomegalovirus (SCMV), a “stealth virus” capable of causing neurological disorders in the human brain is also the cancer-causing monkey virus found in 3 of 8 strains of polio vaccines and administered to millions of unsuspecting people throughout the world.  It was just 1 of numerous simian viruses known to have contaminated polio vaccines.

The polio vaccine: a critical assessment of its arcane history, efficacy,
and long-term health-related consequences

Leukemia and brain cancer now account for nearly 1/2 of all childhood cancers.  In the last 20 years asthma has increased by 300%, ADHD and allergies by 400%, autism by a staggering 1500%, and learning disabilities by 55%, a cautious estimate.

Dr Anju Usman & her family’s experience :

A JAB IN THE DARK.  Are our children being over vaccinated?

Here is a great article…except for the last paragraph regarding finding a vaccine to help.  Little did this writer know that the virus /pathogens he talks about are often found in vaccines as per earlier articles above.

The Insanity Virus | Mental Health | DISCOVER Magazine

 

Another great article from a great doctor, Dr Suzanne Humphries:  “Are Vaccines a Gift from God?” 

 
Boyd Haley, phD comments in regards to this article: 

“As a retired professor of biochemistry/chemistry who taught in a medical school for 20+ years it is indeed sad to read what Dr. [Suzanne] Humpries writes, but especially because there is a lot of truth to it.  Basically, just comparing the infant and childhood mortality rates of the USA (the most highly vaccinated children) to other countries that do not vaccinate as early or as much as the USA it quite telling.  The USA has one of the highest infant and childhood (1-5 years age) death rates of modern countries, yet this never gets discussed on major media.  It definitely points out that there is something wrong with our medical care system.  The inaction and lack of addressing this issue by our federal health agencies is one of the major failures of American society.  We indeed are producing sick children incapable of being what they could be.  The past academic successes of USA children, when compared to foreign competitors, shows that we are now failing in our responsibilities toward these infants and youngsters — and I am afraid that our Congress members could care less at this time.”

Feb 10, 2011 peer reviewed and fully indexed Journal of Immunotoxicology, 2011 states the following:

“The MMR II vaccine is contaminated with HUMAN DNA (aborted fetal tissue) from the cell line.  This human DNA could be the cause of the spikes in incidence.  An additional increased spike in incidence of autism occurred in 1995 when the chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue (Merck and Co., Inc., 2001; Breuer, 2003).

Taken together, these data support the hypothesis that residual human DNA in some vaccines might cause autism.”

Vegetarian Cheese made with GMO Calf Rennin/Rennet

 editor’s note:  Rennin, rennet, chymosin are all names used for the same thing > an enzyme that is added to milk as the first step in making cheese, or for making junket.   Sometimes, the terminology is more distinct, rennet being the stomach extract, while rennin or chymosin are names for the pure enzyme itself, which is the active ingredient in the extract. – WordIQ.

This piece is brought to you by our collaborative contributor Sleuth for Truth who volunteers the majority of her time researching nutrition, natural health, and civil rights violations.

                                              *    *    *    *    *    *    *

In 1990 a genetically modified organism [GMO] rennin substitute was passed by the FDA.  In the USA and UK near 90% of cheese is produced using the GMO rennin!  It has been the best kept secret ever!  Tesco and Marks & Spencer [aka, M&S] grocery stores repeatedly assured me that no GMO was used in their cheese production.  I did not believe them, and I kept at them and at them until they told me the truth. 

I made this video to highlight my journey with Marks & Spencer trying to get the truth out of them.  All of their cheeses use the GMO rennin — their organic cheeses!


 

I suspect Tesco do as well, but they will not admit it.  I am currently trying to find out exactly which organic certification board thinks it is OK to use GMO rennin.
The Vegetarian Society also endorse the GMO rennin.  As the GMO rennin is cloned from the actual rennin extracted from a dead calves stomach, I asked did they not think they were deceiving vegetarians with their endorsement?  They said they ‘believe it better that one calf should die than thousands.’
I put it to them:  if they had not have endorsed it, then the cheese manufacturers would have been forced to use one of the natural plant rennins.

The FDA granted the original patent and license to Pfizer (the drug giant).
Any substance taken from a plant cannot be patented, no money in that, so the GMO rennin totally took over the market.  It was becoming too expensive to kill calves at a day old to harvest the rennin, so a substitute had to be found.

The substance in the rennin that causes the curds and whey to separate is chymosin.  They started off with rennin from a dead calves stomach, extracted the chymosin, then produced clones of the calves rennin.  They now also use rennin from piglets and lambs.

Tesco, environmental health, and Marks & Spencer all tell me no GMO is left in the cheese or whey, but they could not furnish me with studies or tests that might prove this.  Other advocates of this GMO chymosin say only a small percentage is left in the cheese, and more in the whey!  Whey is in everything:  chocolate, biscuits, ice cream, etc…

Asking a vegetarian to eat cheese produced from cloned rennin, is akin to saying, eat that sheep – its OK – its only a clone!!!!!!  I have not been onto all the other supermarket chains, but I think we can take it as a given….they all use it! 
The Co-Op [The Co-operative Group, LTD] seems to be the only supermarket in the UK who has shown any respect for their customers being the only ones that have it on the label that a GMO is used in the production of the cheese.  They have at least allowed their customers the choice if they want to consume food produced using a GMO.
MUCH respect to The Co-op!  I WILL NOW BE DOING A LOT MORE OF MY SHOPPING AT THE CO-OP BECAUSE OF THEIR HONESTY.  I won’t eat the GMO cheese, but AT LEAST The Co-op warns you…in BIG LETTERS!
The rest are lying, deceitful cons who have maintained this lie for years.  I dare anyone to ring Marks & Spencer or Tesco and ask if they use GMO in the production of their cheeses – they will say no!  It took me months to get the truth out of them, and I now have it in writing.  It suited them all just fine that the “useless eaters” had no clue what they were eating!
I beg you all, please spread the word on this, tell everyone, and start shouting.  Do what I do:  phone them, make a fuss, call them liars – because that is what they are!  Marks & Spencer especially bum and blow all the time about their store being totally GMO free!  Half the food in their food has had the GMO chymosin used in the production.  Rotten liars!
 
Then there is all the things that contain GMO whey:  chocolate, ice cream, pies, biscuits… this DNA altering mess is in everything!  Cadbury and Nestle both use a lot of whey in their chocolate.  It’s a bulking agent – it bulks the chocolate up AND it bulks you up!

Here is information on the production of chymosin.

Then this link details the totally inadequate testing that was done on chymosin which seems to have been done by Pfizer….like they could be trusted.  I have been trying to establish who exactly produces the GMO chymosin, but so far no luck!  Whatever the big secret is, no one will tell me.

I’m still on this case; I’m not finished with them all yet!  Look forward to updates by checking back often or follow us by FREE email subscription.
Until then — stand for something and assume nothing!

Anxiety, Amnesia, Anesthesia – Pick Your Poison

The following is brought to us by an additional collaborative contributor: pH-at Naturopath. He brings incredible research, life experience, and analysis on several issues regarding the state of our healthcare system, personal health, and pure, unabashed freedom for all.

His passion resounds straight from the heart (with a good dose of intellect) that began when his child began to suffer tremendously after a stiff vaccine regimen. Through this process, many of his own problems throughout life began to make a little more sense when he realized he, too, had been “vaccine damaged” leaving him floating along the milder end of the autistic spectrum with Asperger’s Syndrome.

The culmination of health problems led him into a career as a naturopath: a natural based health care provider. Here, he gives us insight into American psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin, critic of biological psychiatry and psychiatric medication, after having read several of Dr. Breggin’s books.

Don’t forget to get your FREE email subscription to the right of the page so you don’t miss tons of upcoming health information that is missed by mainstream media — & mainstream medical care for that matter.

p-Hat Naturopath:

I must tell you that I have never been so overwhelmed by profound knowledge than when I read Dr. Breggin’s work. Without a doubt, the depth of knowledge that he shares is without equal. It is my hope that as you read this small portion of his work, you will read “Brain-Disabling Treatments In Psychiatry” in its entirety, and continue your quest for truth in medicine with his other books as well.

Every naturopathic practitioner should be required to study Dr. Breggin. I do not hold out much hope for traditional allopathic practitioners. Occasionally, we will see 1 or 2 peel out of the flock. For the most part — they are all locked in the stricture of the AMA (American Medical Association) and “the standard of care” ideology.

From chapter 12 of Dr. Peter Breggin’s book “Brain-Disabling Treatments In Psychiatry“:

No drugs are obviously more brain-disabling and spellbinding than the benzodiazepines (BZ’s). They produce a continuum of central nervous system (CNS) effects that begins with a feeling of relaxation, progresses toward somnolence, and in sufficient doses causes a coma deep enough to use as anesthesia in major surgery. The continuum of effects is very similar to alcohol, but the BZ’s can suppress the CNS without producing as much drunkenness (slurred speech and ataxia) and can more effectively produce the depth of soma necessary for surgery.

FRONTIER RESEARCH IN ANESTHESIOLOGY
CONFIRMS THE BRAIN-DISABLING PRINCIPLE

Because they have no ax to grind about treating anxiety with BZ’s and other CNS depressants, anesthesiologists have been more honest in evaluating their effects.  All currently used forms of anesthesia work by enhancing the effect of the neurotransmitter system receptors known as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), including the long-acting diazepam (Valium) used to treat anxiety and the ultra-short-acting midazolam (Versed) used intravenously to produce anesthesia…

… In evaluating the latest advances in anesthesiology in 2007, Dr. Beverley Orser, Professor of Anesthesiology and Physiology at the University of Toronto, discussed the mechanism faction of anesthetics, including BZ’s.  Her description confirmed the brain-disabling principle in regard to these drugs:

Even at the local level, if one imagines groups of neurons as forming lines in a vast telephone network, the effect of general anesthesia is analogous to pulling out the plugs at the switchboard.

This kind of general disruption of brain function and consciousness takes place when an individual undergoes anesthesia — or takes BZ’s to relieve anxiety.  Unfortunately, Dr. Orser’s level of sophistication about the brain-disabling effects of BZ’s is sorely missing among psychiatric drug experts who persist in believing that their chemicals treat specific psychiatric disorders similar to the way insulin treats diabetes.

Back to pH-at Naturopath:
It is my sincere hope that those of you who read this get the clearly stated message: 

 Psychiatric medications “are not specific in their action.” 

They are, in fact, dangerous.  Truly mind altering…and not of the pleasant, “normalizing” variety.  Somewhere, someone got the notion you could stuff 1950’s sitcom personalities into a patented chemical formulation into a pill and society swallowed it whole.  Perhaps an attitude derivative of the “shut ’em up, pucker up” era in question where in just recent history, women were expected to be seen and not heard just as much as the children. 

Usher in the “I want it – NOWVeruca Salt era of instant gratification, top it with a good dose of prescription bonuses (particularly from every new synthetic drug that needs a pusher on the market) and there you have it:  the perfect formula for disinformation of the public and I truly speculate misinformation of most medical students. 

Dr. Breggin points out the notion that these drugs are wrongly believed to function similarly to diabetes drugs.  That introduces a whole other future post, but I will leave you with this to think about: 

Never will we benefit fully by synthetic analogs of the real thing, whether they are injected or swallowed.

Fluoride is a Drug & Austin, TX Fights Back

Introducing our 1st collaborative contributor, Granny Good-Food. You’re gonna love her. 😉

Austin is kickin’ it!  Fluoride-Free Austin is educating their elected officials about the dangers of industrial by-products being added to the water in the name of dental health.  Fluoride is a drug, and officials who consent to it are practicing medicine without a license. 

Hydrofluosilicic acid (fluoride) is an “unstable, poisonous, corrosive acid” used in your drinking water and not batch tested for heavy metals.  Sure, it eats through concrete.  But don’t worry, it’s safe for you.  The self-regulating industry says so.

When we discuss whether or not fluoride is beneficial, or what level could be considered safe, we do err. It is not the prerogative of government to medicate its citizens. This is stepping out of the realm of a republic based on law and into the arms of a dictatorship that believes it controls its citizens’ life from birth to death.

As Congressman Ron Paul [R] said, “Freedom over one’s physical person is the most basic freedom of all, and people in a free society should be sovereign over their own bodies. When we give government the power to make medical decisions for us we, in essence, accept that the state owns our bodies.”

Chemicals like chlorine are added to treat the water. Fluoride is added to TREAT PEOPLE. This is wrong, unethical, and very dangerous. Once the precedent has been set, what is there that the government, in the guise of ‘health’ could not do? The possibilities are terrifying.

If you haven’t noticed, water treated with fluoride is everywhere.  Even with solid proof that it wears away teeth causing them to chip along with other more serious consequences like cancer, it is forced onto the public in every state.  Many do not even have a choice between having a well or using “city water,” & even some that do have the choice still have to pay the usual city fee even if a well is used but the property is part of the aqua grid.

Take Riverside County, CA for example:

Riverside County has Wyle Labs and all the perchlorates are in the water, too, along with very high natural levels.  I know.  I actually went with my friend to the Water Dept, and saw the electronic board that tracks levels; how they mix it with other water when it gets too high.  No studies have been done on the synergistic effects of multiple halogens [fluoride, chlorine (perCHLORates) ] in any municipal water.

There MUST be some secret blackmail that the fluoride industry uses against elected officials.  Or the payoff must be beyond belief.  I just don’t get it.  All the evidence to reasonable, intelligent adults shows how toxic it is.  To create a need for ongoing dental services?  Stupify the public?  Create a use from industrial waste?

We must find a weapon against this crime against humanity.  Elected officials are bonded; what if we filed charges against their bonds?  They would be un-electable.  Some smarty pants needs to figure out how to do this.

While we’re at it, why can’t the “practicing medicine without a license” be extended to everything that contains fluoride??

In the Aftermath of Nuclear Disaster

Sometimes there comes a point when you have to stop researching and start implementing what you’ve learned. Time to digest the changes, absorb the situation, and re-evaluate your priorities.

After several successive days and nights of spending most of my time trying to give this website project a jumpstart, the destructive trifecta of earthquake(s), tsunami, and nuclear radiation leakage knocked me into a reality check of my own family’s ability to protect and sustain itself should those circumstances either be duplicated or contaminate our little homestead.

The next day, a younger 3rd cousin of mine lost his wife after she gave birth to their son. A tragedy of epic proportions that although I cannot comprehend the depth, am immediately awakened to the need to address the here and now.

So, I spent the majority of the weekend offline. There comes a point where the many bigger issues must be taken apart to reveal that which is most important at its core, that which is most urgent, most effective, further reaching in its quest for longevity.

As a parent, this most often begins with my children. Have I spent any quality time with them lately? Have I – at least once today – let go of my own reality in order to visit their immature realms? A child’s priorities will never be an adult’s, but I find this mutually therapeutic when taken in small, frequent doses.

As a spouse, I wonder…how do I know when I’m working enough or working too much? Without an income or time clock attached to the deed, it is more difficult to measure. Then came the reflection, “Have I shown my appreciation?” Again, it is easier to assume that we have, than that we haven’t. I figured either way it went, it’d be a poor assumption.

There were also other things to consider:

How will possible nuclear fallout affect my food supply?
Would I be better off to start my peas indoors? v.s. the original plan to sow them directly in the ground right away? I just had gotten landscaping garden rows ready along the base of my fence.

Need to start collecting drink containers to sterilize with boiling water & keep filled for at least 2 weeks worth of drinking water.

Need to quit putting off my mini-root cellar idea. This will allow me to store plenty of cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes, squash. Would be wise to consider constructing an indoor entrance to this. We don’t have a basement already, but we could easily modify a small section of flooring for indoor access to decrease chances of radiation exposure.

Stock up on iodine/potassium iodide. In essence, an adult needs 130mcg a day to saturate the thyroid. This protects the thyroid only, but is essential to blocking radioactive iodides. There could be other radioactive particles involved as well.

Clay – particularly bentonite – can be used as a mud bath, skin wrap, food/drink additive – to help draw out radiation.

Baking soda – Besides being the safest, most effective teeth cleaning substance, it also works to neutralize radioactive isotopes. Recommended to having 50 lbs on hand for emergency situations. Reportedly, you can get that much for ~$35. I thought I was doing good with the 3-4 small boxes we have put back.

Seaweed – any way you can get it, and get it pretty often because it contains high amounts of potassium iodide in the purest form available: food. Can be found dried/powdered in capsule form or as a direct food additive, salty/crunchy dehydrated snacks, fresh in salads, pickled…

Probably a good idea to store the water currently caught in my rain barrels in our covered portable cistern, & not use any rain caught this month without 1st treating it with baking soda. This is not drinking water I am talking about, either, but used for our garden instead.

Stock up on vitamin C, but make an effort to grow small citrus trees indoors beginning with orange and lemon.  Reportedly my great-grandfather kept miniatures growing and producing fruit in his basement even though he lived well out of range from their tropical native climate. 

Need to give special attention to my already growing antioxidant mustard greens, rosemary, and aloe vera. All of these are very easy to grow in small spaces and offer heavy metal detox for the circulatory system.

Time to include oregano in my herb garden. Praised for antimicrobial action, essential oil of oregano extracted from the plant is a strong daily defender of the immune system.

So back to my cycle of priorities…as always, they come back ’round to my family. So for now, I’m gonna log off, be eclectic and work on starting my pea sprouts indoors to help save our food supply while teaching my kids self-sufficiency and showing my mate that I’m thankful by bringing a bit o’ my own to the table…even if money doesn’t exchange hands.

Japanese Nuclear Reactor Emergency Status – Area Evacuated – Bigger than Chernobyl Disaster

There have been massive amounts of radiation detected OUTside of the destabilized nuclear reactor, reports up to 1000 times higher than safe levels following the largest earthquake in Japanese 140 years of recorded history. All citizens in the area are urged to evacuate. Links with full details to follow.

This is the prime occasion to discuss the simple fact that nuclear energy and natural gas or oil are never safe, viable, life enhancing options. It really is that simple. No man-made structure will ever fully withstand natural disasters or climatic conditions over time (if ever at all), and they also increase the likelihood and number of casualties in the meantime.

No amount of convenience is worth the loss of life. After all, it’s the improvement in the quality of life that is the primary argument for such advances. However, over the last decade, it has become abundantly clear that it is not quality of life, but quantity of profit that drives these toxic invasions into our towns, homes, air, soil, and water.

Clean air (thus allowing in proper sunshine, temperature, & gases), soil, and water…the 3 necessities for life. These 3 things not only provide the ability to feed ourselves, but each on its own is a carrier of either nurturance or poison that will enter our bodies in a number of ways.

Do not support, do not believe media reports or classroom textbooks that try to charm you into thinking everything’s ok because we’ve learned how to manage/harnass/utilize safely that which is a proven poison.

Even if you think natural disasters or mandated gas pipelines lining your suburban ditches and urban sprawls don’t affect your region that much, they do. The nuclear power plant discreetly located on the other side of the state or in a no-man’s land of useless property, the truth is: fires feed off of fuel, they spread, & so does toxic release of wastes – whether by industrial neglect, terrorism, or the changing weather.
