Old houses

A friend came with her  meter to check all our electrical outlets. She found a bunch that weren’t grounded. That means more emf exposure. For $350 we had the issue corrected by an electrician.
I can feel the difference!

Continuing ed credits

A smaller newer group of nurses has formed to look at environmental factors affecting health and functioning of us humans.  One of their topics is looking at environmental exposures of different occupations.  I asked why dental personnel were overlooked?  They asked me what I had to say about it in 2019.  What they are printing is a modification of what I wrote.

Available to all Virginia residents with a call – testing through quicksilverscientific.com.  With them the  topic MERCURY is more than a business.  They require urine, blood, and hair samples for testing.

In this community W&M geology students are aware of their mercury exposure.  They have been grateful for DAMS (entries 8/20/20 & 1/23/21) participation in 8 Earth Days (2001- 2017) before the lockdown.

Pet health update

We have a wonderful animal, our cat, Squeaky.  He’s approaching 20.  Unfortunately as cats get older they are likely to get bladder or urinary tract problems.  We never used any therapeutic grade essential oils we have in the house on any of our cats.  You do not use these oils on animals as you would on an adult.  You can actually kill an animal with these oils without proper guidance.

I attended a free class in Gloucester with Dr Mary Oney, a naturopath, about the oils and pets.  I got a free booklet about using the oils with animals and a sample of a blend to spray around Squeaky’s eating area. The result of using it for fleas:  dramatic reduction- to almost none!

Now in 2021 the National Resources Defense Council (a non profit environmental group) reports continued suing of our Environmental Protection Agency to protect pets, owners, and small children snuggling up to pets wearing toxic flea collars.  There is neurological damage (according to the EPA’s own assessment) to toddlers brains.  PetSmart and Petco, 2 large retailers, under pressure from the NRDC, are dropping toxic flea collars.  More detailed information is at nrdc.org.

A ban

Chlorpyrifos, a pesticide killing bees essential to food production, causing learning problems in children BANNED this month.  Maybe even adults are affected😐 – but the ruling doesn’t say that.  Earthjustice, an environmental group joined with other organizations has repeatedly sued our Environmental Protection Agency government to do this.  The substance was banned from indoor household products a quarter of a century ago.

{According to Virginia Cooperative Extension not all bees are interested in stinging people.  I learned that earlier by calling them about some on our deck.]

Court case won against Federal Communication Commission (FCC).  Current “standards” of safe exposure to our 2021 electronic world are “way too high”.  Our safety standards allow much higher level of exposure than many other countries.  The “standard” was decided upon in 1996 – 25 years ago. The sueing agency is the Children’s Health Defense.  But really it is in defense of all of us living in this country.  Podcast of proceedings Aug 16 available now online.

I went to the nearby Best Buy store and discovered this area is already getting 5Gs (entry 2/9/21)🥴  I went there to see if I could purchase a keyboard that is not Bluetooth.  Bluetooth is the most dangerous of the WiFi.  I learned there is no other keyboard option for my current electronic device.  I need to look into this

3 groups

There are dentists who do not put MERCURY “silver fillings”/“dental amalgam” in teeth.  They belong to one or more of these groups:  International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, American Holistic Dental Association, International Association of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, or Mercury-free dentists.

The American Dental Association continues to say their patented MERCURY fillings are safe, despite many people’s experiences with them and the evidence from the “Smoking Tooth” video online.

Testing available from anyone in Virginia with a call :  quicksilverscientific.com.  This is more than a business.  It is testing of blood, urine, and hair.

I recently went on a camping trip to the Great Smoky Mountains.  Camping in a tent, sleeping close to the ground, being away from WiFi – a great way to get downtime from the electronic world.  Actually some folks (not me) worked indoors in huge RVs with lamps as large as the one in my living room.

Hiking, tubing in the nearby rocky creek, playing games, kept children laughing and busy.  Sleeping in a tent close to the ground was not part of their experience.  Some places to camp in Virginia in a tent actually have changed to RVs only.

I was appreciative to have this time in nature in a reduced electronic environment.  I can see and feel positive change from this trip.
