naturally fight against infection of west nile virus

Although many counties are seeing the same new species of bird, appropriately named the mosquito, we all must be diligent about mitigating contraction of the west nile virus.

There are many ways to reduce the mosquito population around your own home but you cannot control your becoming dinner to these guys that are starving elsewhere you go.

Choose an over the counter protection with as few harmful toxic chemicals as possible or make up your own non-toxic concoction.  Many prefer Neem oil and I could name at least a dozen cultural options but will get right to what has worked for me for years.

Something I learned over a decade ago when living without screens in the West Indies.

  • inexpensive unscented lotion
  • if bottle is 8oz, use 7 drops each of cinnamon oil and clove oil.  If larger or smaller, adjust accordingly, you may increase clove oil by 3 drops but know the scent will strengthen as well.
  • Shake vigorously before each application.
  • These natural oils may burn your skin; test for sensitivity prior to applying to body and I found it safe for cheeks and neck as well

WARNING:  pure oils may burn your skin with direct contact, please mix as above before testing.

Remain vigilant and protect yourselves, your elders and your children.  BIC… CSea

Major progress in removing toxic chemicals from consumer products

Great news heard this morning on CBS.

Noting that Johnson & Johnson recognizes the toxic chemicals in their products and have stated they will remove them from all their products by 2015.

So relieved to see they have admitted it and will have toxic chemicals removed from Baby products by 2013 and the rest of their products by 2015.

We have tolerated (most likely without full knowledge or disclosure) these chemicals because of synthetics having a lower price tag.

In order for us to use non-toxic shampoo, soap, moisturizers etc, we have to up the ante and pay more for safety.

What is right with this picture?  What is wrong with this picture.

We call ourselves ‘mitigatetoxins’ on Twitter for a reason.

Joy to J&J now hoping the rest of the industry follows suit.

Practical solution to detox your home

It has come to my attention that we are codependent on toxic chemicals, duh!  Sometimes the truth hurts and always we are given choices.

Choose wisely. Why?  Because you can.

Know what harmful toxins you are subjecting yourself and your family to. Research what is in the products you use daily, go online, read the labels, contact the manufacturers, etc.

The solution I found to resolve this issue was so simple, I found myself laughing out loud.  All I had to do was think back 23 years to the Melaleuca products my daughter and I were introduced to.

Non-toxic and non-caustic; what a concept.  Better than that, to s0me, was that they were more effective than what we were using from the store, safer and actually cost less.  Now that makes sense!

No brainer!

Well, last year I decided to look at their business model and was even more impressed with the Mission, the Success and the Vision than I thought possible.

We are very pleased to have made the time to compare these products to other ‘green’ products and we chose.  Love the Renew so much more than the Eucerin I got at the hospital.  Daughter is a nurse, has her favorite brands of products and switched stores to improve the quality of life for she and her son.

The “No Work” for the bathroom rocks and the “Sol-U-Guard” kills 99.999% of the 2009 H1N1, bacteria, other virus’ on contact (as do several other products).  There are so many benefits; ask and I’m happy to share my authentic experiences.

Choose wisely for your future well being and that of your family.  Just over 151 products are engineered with Tea Tree Oil.  Tea Tree Oil is the strongest natural occurring antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral known to man.

Do the eco.nomics, make smart decisions in living a healthier life!

Is The H1N1 Flu Vaccine Going To Give Me Gulf War Syndrome?

H1N1 shot or not; flu or cold

by Pablo Paster, San Francisco on 11.16.09

No, this isn’t another article about mercury in vaccines, it is also not about vaccines causing autism, nor is it about vaccines not being vegan. This article is about an entirely different argument against vaccines that has surfaced in the international media and on conspiracy theory websites (which I won’t legitimize by providing a link, but Google will help you find them if you are curious).

What Is Squalene?

This article is about an immunological adjuvant called Squalene. What is an adjuvant? Well, it is an additive used in vaccines that stimulates your immune system and increases your immunological response to the vaccine. Squalene is a “natural organic compound” that comes from shark liver oil or vegetable oils. Squalene is even naturally occurring in humans and vital part of the synthesis of cholesterol and vitamin D. According to Anthrax vaccine expert Meryl Nass, M.D. “a novel feature of the two H1N1 vaccines being developed by companies Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline is the addition of squalene-containing adjuvants to boost immunogenicity and dramatically reduce the amount of viral antigen needed. This translates to much faster production of desired vaccine quantities.”

Why May Squalene Be Bad For Me?

Squalene has been shown in studies to anti-squalene antibodies that would presumably attack the body’s naturally occurring squalene. During a hearing of the House Subcommittee on National Security, Veterans Affairs, and International Relations Robert F. Garry, P.h.D. from the Tulane Medical School’s Department of Microbiology and Immunology said “our published research makes a compelling case that, first, anti-squalene antibodies exist, and second, that there is a link between the antibodies and Gulf War illness.” The reference section of the hearing transcript also states that “in the people studied, the presence of the antibodies correlated very closely with the presence of the symptoms of Gulf War illness both in personnel who had been deployed to the Persian Gulf theater and in personnel who had not been deployed there.”

Thinking About Avoiding The Vaccine?: Read On

In response to several studies attempting to associate squalene adjuvants with Gulf War Syndrome the World Health Organization (WHO) has made the following statements, which is also supported by published studies:

  • A few people have tried to link the health problems of Gulf War veterans to the possible presence of squalene in the vaccines these soldiers received.
  • One published report suggested that some veterans who received anthrax vaccines developed anti-squalene antibodies and these antibodies caused disabilities.
  • It is now known that squalene was not added to the vaccines administered to these veterans, and technical deficiencies in the report suggesting an association have been published.

As a firm believer in the precautionary principle I believe that the government should not allow the use any chemical without proper testing. Instead, it appears that this adjuvant is being allowed for the H1N1 pandemic because it allows the limited vaccine doses to immunize more people. In the end, you and your doctor know what’s best for you.

Historical evidence that electrification caused the 20th century epidemic

NOTE WORTHY UPDATE supporting your campaign to help people mitigate EMF danger from cellphones, electronics and wireless technology…

Historical evidence that electrification caused the 20th century
epidemic of “diseases of civilization”

A new study published by Samuel Milham, MD, MPH, in the September 2009 issue of the journal Medical Hypotheses reveals that electricity is responsible for most of the so called “diseases of civilization.” Author Milham is the 1997 recipient of the prestigious Ramazzini Award for his contribution to the epidemiology of occupational disease, with particular reference to carcinogenic risk from electromagnetic fields. Milham is a leading international expert in occupational hazards. He published as early as 1979 that electrical workers have increased mortality due to certain cancers.

Dr. Milham’s work is based on decades of government records of deaths and electrification that show electricity has been causing increased mortality from cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and suicide since the beginning of the 20th century.

The slow spread of residential electrification in the US in the first half of the 20th century from urban to rural areas resulted by 1940 in two large populations that allowed a detailed comparison of the spread of electricity with death rates. Electrification is clearly associated with increasing rates of disease and death. Urban death rates were as much as 66% higher than rural rates for cardiovascular diseases, malignant diseases, diabetes and suicide in 1940. Rural death rates were significantly correlated with level of residential electric service by state for most causes examined.

Dr. Milham’s publication suggests that the 20th Century epidemic of the so-called diseases of civilization including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and suicide was caused by electrification not by lifestyle. He also concludes that a large proportion of these diseases may therefore be preventable.

Dr. Milham further comments that: “The explosive recent increase in radiofrequency radiation and high frequency voltage transients sources, from cell phones and towers, terrestrial antennas, WiFi and WiMax telecommunication systems, broadband internet over power lines, and personal electronic equipment may be leading to a new 21st Century epidemic much like the 20th Century electromagnetic field epidemic.” That this new epidemic of morbidity and mortality may be underway is of major concern to Dr. Milham.

The EMR Policy Institute applauds Dr. Milham’s work that brings attention to this emerging public health question. His new paper makes a major contribution towards a better understanding of the human biological effects from exposure to electromagnetic fields across the spectrum.

The man who is allergic to Wi-Fi

wireless dangers

wireless dangers

From “Independent IE”

Friday July 24 2009

A club DJ, Steve Miller, has revealed he has been forced into exile by a powerful allergy to Wi-Fi internet waves which leaves him feeling dizzy, sick and disorientated.

Mr Miller, better known by his stage name Afterlife, is unable to use trains, stay in hotels or visit his local high street because of his sensitivity to the “electrosmog” caused by wireless internet waves.

He is among around two pc of the population who suffer from Electromagnetic Hypersensetivity, while the number of people and businesses pumping out the Wi-Fi signal is rising.

Mr Miller told The Sun: “I feel like an exile on my own planet. It’s almost impossible to find somewhere without Wi-Fi nowadays.

“If I fancy a pint I have to travel three miles to the only pub in my area that doesn’t have it. I can’t just go to the shops because huge parts of the high street affect me.

“If I go somewhere, I can instantly sense the Wi-Fi and have to leg it.”

Mr Miller, who had a residency at the Ibiza nightclub Pacha before his allergy, said he has missed out on a large number of overseas gigs because all airports and most hotels have Wi-Fi.

The only place where he can escape the “electrosmog” is in his own home – a detached house with 18in thick granite walls in a village near Falmouth, Cornwall.

Mr Miller believes that the majority of headaches people get at work can be attributed to their office Wi-Fi connections.

“I’ve spoken to friends who work in offices who end up living on painkillers because of their daily headaches,” he said. “They tried turning off their transmitters and found their headaches stopped.”

Vatican Radio bows to pressure on electromagnetic radiation

Monday, 9 April, 2001, 21:09 GMT 22:09 UK
Vatican radio bows to pressure

The station broadcasts the pope’s speeches in some 40 languages

The Vatican, in an effort to stop Italy from cutting off electricity to its radio station following a row over electromagnetic radiation, says it will cut some of its transmissions after Easter.

The surprise decision was announced a day before Italy’s Environment Minister Willer Bordon was due to hold a news conference to announce measures against the station.

The minister has accused Vatican Radio of exceeding Italian laws on radiation and of being a health hazard.

Last month, Mr Bordon threatened to cut off all electricity to the radio’s transmission centre on Rome’s outskirts.

The antennas violate Italian law.

Residents have claimed that the radio’s forest of large antennae have resulted in a higher incidence of leukaemia in the area.

Vatican Radio, which broadcasts the Pope’s speeches and events to the world in some 40 languages, announced its decision on Monday hours after the latest tests ordered by the environment ministry confirmed that the transmissions violated Italian standards.

Shut down after Easter

The statement said the broadcaster would shut down its medium wave transmissions on the 1530 kHz band for seven hours a day beginning on 16 April, the day after Easter.

That waveband is currently used for 14 hours a day and so the shutdown would affect some 50% of broadcasts on that frequency, which is primarily used for broadcasts in Europe.

A Vatican Radio spokesman said broadcasts on short wave, which is beamed to other continents, and FM, which is used for Italy, would continue as normal.

The statement said it was “presumed” that the AM antennae, whose broadcasts are sent in horizontal waves, were the reason why the broadcaster exceeded Italian limits.

Minimising risk

The statement confirmed Vatican Radio’s willingness to seek a long-term solution on transmission levels that would “minimise the risk to the population”.

Like Vatican City itself, the transmission centre is on extraterritorial land and considered part of the sovereign Vatican state.

Last month, Mr Bordon said the National Agency for the Protection of the Environment had registered three times the legal limit for electromagnetic radiation during one evening broadcast.

Since Vatican Radio was set up 44 years ago, Italy has introduced the European Union’s toughest limits on such radiation, dubbed “electrosmog” by the Italian media.
