With the narrative punch of Jonathan Harr’s A Civil Action and the commitment to environmental truth-telling of Erin Brockovich, The Fluoride Deception documents a powerful connection between big corporations, the U.S. military, and the historic reassurances of fluoride safety provided by the nation’s public health establishment.

gladrags

Find quality reusable pads at www.gladrags.com

I am appalled by what I read on Natural News today. Really what is the world coming to? land of the free – my arse!!

(Story by Daisy Luther, republished from TheOrganicPrepper.ca, with additional editing by Natural News and Naked wild and free)

The FDA has decided that reusable menstrual pads[1] are Class I Medical Devices. That means those who manufacture these products must pay an annual fee of THREE TO FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS to continue doing so. Not only must these ladies armed with sewing machines pay taxes on their income, they must pay a charge to the FDA to continue making a living this way. FDA Regulation #884.5435 states that a reusable menstrual pad maker must be “FDA compliant” — which means they must pay a yearly registration fee of $3,646 to remain in business for 2015 and a fee of $3,872 for 2016.

Dangers of fake bake tanning

bikini

As the festive season is quickly approaching, Fake Bake mobile tanning units are popping up in my town and I guess in yours to. You can also buy the stuff online to tan yourself at home. Popular with celebrities, they have been deemed by the media and tanning salons as ‘a healthier way to tan’, they big them up by saying ‘Fake Bake uses botanical ingredients and advancements in their products have allowed them to remove ingredients such as parabens and artificial preservatives from their tanning products’. Ohh you think, they must be OK, in fact a local representative said

“Fake bake is suitable for anybody, young or old, is also safe to use if you are pregnant ( after 12 weeks) all skin tones, and can be used on many different skin conditions, with no irritation.”

Lets dig a little bit deeper, as I always advise you all to do with any product you are putting on your skin.

All about Thyme and how amazing it is!

I love herbs!

I use them in cooking, in remedies, in potions for the bath and skin, I love infusing them in oil and drying them for winter, I have a cracking collection now which has been easy to build up over the past few years. My favourite is always Thyme, this grows year round even when it’s snowing and doesn’t need drying out to store, it’s also very hardy, can last for days without watering even in hot weather, grows well in shade and poor soil too although I like to put my coffee grounds on the soil for an extra boost and comes in all different types, I have lemon thyme ( which hasn’t grown as abundantly as I would like) and English Thyme.
