Parents are hosting chicken pox parties so their kids can ‘get it over with,’ but a pediatrician says the practice is a gamble

chicken pox

And vaccines aren’t a gamble? Give me a break! Actually, no. I stand corrected. Vaccines are not a gamble. They are a dead set certainty to harm! It’s just to what degree. That’s the gamble. The harm ranges from minor immune damage, asthma or food allergies to autism to death. You gets your shot and you takes your gamble. Just listened to an interview by RF Kennedy Jnr where he says 2.3% of people who get it develop an autoimmune disease, FIFTY PER CENT of people who get the Gardisil vaccine have a severe reaction within 6 months! The death rate during the trials was double the normal rate, the miscarriage rate was 5 times the normal rate, 5 times the fertility problems and an INCREASED risk of cancer! AND TO TOP IT OFF, THERE IS NO PROOF GARDISIL PREVENTS CERVICAL CANCER!

Most of us go through life pretty much on automatic. We get up and do pretty much what we have done before. Which means we’ll wind up tomorrow with pretty much what we have as a result of yesterday’s efforts. I think that’s horrible!

I would like you to stop and rethink that operating basis and ask yourself if you want to have in three or four years time what we have today – a state government that appears to be a decision making rubber stamp for commercial vested interests, that does not protect the environment (Murray-Darling, CSG, coal mining over farm land, deforestation), that has gutted TAFE, slashed hospital funding (while retaining funding for useless chemotherapy and destructive fluoridation and psychotropic drugs) and done too little to fix our education crisis.

I would suggest it’s well past time that we as citizens demanded more. More of ourselves, more of our employers and more of the government!

Since Labor and Liberal/National Coalition have done nothing to fix the problem then they are part of the problem. As is our inaction on the subject! For if a population gets the government it deserves, we appear to be an ill deserving bunch!

The Shooters and Fishers and Greens have supported the government where they could have stood up and voted for what would have made a difference, so they lose me too.

I would ask you to not vote again for the same parties that have created the current messes but kick them out and elect the best independent on your ballot paper. One who will represent the people over a political party.

Demand More! Demand and vote for a better future for us all!

‘Rollie pollies’ remove heavy metals from soil, stabilizing growing conditions, protecting groundwater

Rollie pollies

Turn over a brick or a board that has been lying in the yard for a while and underneath you may find a collection of pill bugs scurrying about. Also known as “rollie pollies” or woodlice, these grey-colored creatures can be found in many dark, moist environments feeding on decaying matter. What’s interesting about these critters is that they are not bugs at all. They are crustaceans and more closely resemble crabs and shrimp, not insects. They are characterized by their ability to roll up into a ball when they feel threatened. Another unique feature is that they have seven pairs of legs. They also act like kangaroos, toting their eggs around with them in a special pouch called a marsupium, located on the pillbug’s underside. Even stranger, they don’t urinate. Instead, they exchange gases through gill-like structures.

Breeding or collecting pill bugs may be an important practice for homesteading and gardening. The guts of these pill bugs contain a number of microbes that help the critter feed on dead, organic matter. By releasing mass quantities of pill bugs into a mature garden, one can be assured that dead plant matter is being properly broken down and returned to healthy soil. Pill bugs literally speed up the process of decomposition. They circulate the soil. This can be very useful in composting. Treats for pill bugs include fungus and monocotyledonous leaves.

Pillbugs play an important role in the cycle of healthy plant life. They return organic matter to the soil so it can be digested further by fungi, protozoans and bacteria. This process produces a natural supply of nitrates, phosphates and other vital nutrients that plants need to thrive now and in future growing seasons. It is important not to introduce pill bugs into the garden too early, as they tend to munch on emerging plants. The grey soil workers often live up to three years.

Pill bugs clean up soil and protect ground water from heavy metal contamination
One very unique quality that these crustaceans possess is their ability to safely remove heavy metals from soil. For this reason, they are an important tool for cleaning up soil contaminated with pollutants like lead, cadmium and arsenic. In coal spoils and slag heaps, pill bugs come in handy. They take in heavy metals like lead and cadmium and crystallize these ions in their guts. The heavy metal toxins are then made into spherical deposits in the mid gut. With this special cleanup property, pill bugs survive where most creatures can’t, in the most contaminated sites.

The magic of the pill bugs helps reestablish healthy soil and prevents toxic metal ions from leaching into the groundwater. This means pill bugs are also protecting well water from becoming contaminated while stabilizing soils.
