Beauty at what cost? Learning to minimize toxic exposures…
I don't go to Salon's anymore due to the chemicals just floating about in the air. It's noxious the minute you walk in even if you don't apply anything to your body or head. I instead take care of my hair at home. I use organic unscented shampoo and conditioner and nothing else on my hair. I even stopped coloring it and let the grey come in. ...

What does it mean to live as part of the web of life, but to behave as if we don’t?
The question about what it means to live life as though we are not connected to all is urgently important at this point in our history on this planet. Because if we don't collectively come to understand that everything matters, we will sadly be headed for doom. It's wonderful to see this line of thinking enter into the realm of what mental health professionals are thinking about. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

GMO OMG: a film for #foodie friday
Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. This opens with a lovely poem and looks like a really wonderful and important film. Below I've included a list posts that consider our contaminated food supply… [click on title to read the rest]
How Monsanto is killing off the monarch butterfly
by PAUL WOODWARD Thanks to its lackeys in the Senate, just a few days ago Monsanto (the manufacturer of Roundup and Roundup-ready GMO crops) got a legal waiver that effectively bypasses consideration of the safety of its products. … [click on title to read the rest]
Poisoning the planet for profit
by PAUL WOODWARD The mealy-mouthed, equivocating, spineless New York Times reports on the devastating loss in bee populations caused by what is termed “colony collapse disorder.” The insidious feature of this report is that while it highlights the magnitude of the problem, it implies that concern about the dangers from pesticides is prevalent mostly among beekeepers — as though scientists remain largely agnostic on how much harm derives from chemicals, as opposed for instance to naturally occurring viral epidemics. The takeaway narrative is that humble beekeepers, perturbed by their losses are afraid of the chemicals, scientists are earnestly investigating the issue, while industry meekly awaits the results, happy to be guided by whatever science reveals. … [click on title to read the rest]
