cancer-causing

Like it’s not even controversial that HPV causes cancer I didn’t even think that was up for debate from anyone ????? she just said that mid argument and was like “how do you know it causes cancer? Because Big Pharma told you it does. Yeah.”

Study Links Widely Used Pesticides to Antibiotic Resistance

This has not been a good week for glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and other herbicides. On Friday, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it had classified glyphosate, the United States’ most widely-used pesticide, as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Now, the chemical has another strike against it. A study published today by the American Society of Microbiology’s journal mBio has linked glyphosate and two other widely-used herbicides–2,4-D and dicamba–to one of the most pressing public health crises of our time: antibiotic resistance.

If Looks Could Kill: Is Your Beauty Regimen Putting You at Risk for Cancer? - The Organic Prepper
Want to avoid becoming part of the cancer epidemic? Here’s a good rule of thumb: If you wouldn’t eat it, perhaps you shouldn’t rub it on your skin. Of course, this is oversimplified – there are many natural cosmetics that are not really items you’d want to ingest, but the principal is sound. Why? First …
Pesticides and health.

Want to know why we should not be consuming them?

I have just read this regarding pesticides on Wikipedia.
Wikipedia.
Not to say that wikipedia can be easily altered, but it is easily one of the most used websites on the internet for it’s factual information.

Wondering why I choose organic rather than pesticide-sprayed foods?

Pesticides may cause acute and delayed health effects in those who are exposed.[24] Pesticide exposure can cause a variety of adverse health effects. These effects can range from simple irritation of the skin and eyes to more severe effects such as affecting the nervous system, mimicking hormones causing reproductive problems, and also causing cancer.[25] A 2007 systematic review found that “most studies on non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia showed positive associations with pesticide exposure” and thus concluded that cosmetic use of pesticides should be decreased.[26] Strong evidence also exists for other negative outcomes from pesticide exposure including neurological, birth defects, fetal death,[27] and neurodevelopmental disorder.

ALWAYS choose organic.

Okay, so yeah. This seems rather sad for those of us who have to eat non-organic, just because that box of raspberries are $10 cheaper than organic ones at this one place. Ever tried another place?

Organic is not expensive if you are looking in the right place.
It’s expensive when you’re looking in the wrong place.

For example, those raspberries being sold at your local organic health food shop, for $10 a punnet. Try going to the markets, and you’ll see that those raspberries are actually $6 a punnet.
Just try going to the markets, or buying online, or buying the food in a different form. Here, I can’t buy fresh raspberries because they are bloody expensive. So we get a frozen bag. It is the same thing, only frozen. And considering it’s getting hot here, I find them a lot nicer.
We can’t get fresh cacao pods here, but we can get the beans. Although I really prefer the powder and the butter. So we get the powder and the butter.

Changing up your health routine really shouldn’t be a hassle. Going back to your old routine should. Go change something you eat each day. I dare you.

Use Unbleached Paper

Research this on your own if you are interested. What got me researching this is the paper mills and their defiance in the environmental regulations that the communities surrounding them are demanding.

This got me thinking, what can i do? and like so many things our money is our vote and we can directing support or NOT support certain industries and companies that are directly affecting people and our environment.

A great website for unbleached paper:

Chemicals Used In Bleaching Paper

In order to get paper products the right kind of white, chlorine and its derivatives are used to bleach it into submission.

Any remaining lignin is removed from chemical pulp using chlorine gas and then treated with either chlorine hypochlorite or chlorine dioxide to give it more brightness.

Between 50 and 80kg of chlorine is needed to bleach each tonne of pulp of which approximately 10% will go on to bind with organic matter to produce furans, dioxins and other organochlorines.

Dioxins and furans are some of the most toxic chemicals known to science. A draft report released for public comment in September 1994 by the US Environmental Protection Agency clearly describes dioxin as a serious public health threat.

Green Is The New White

So next time you go to use a paper product, consider its cost to the environment and to the health of future generations. Ask yourself whether you really need to use it or whether there is a more sustainable alternative. And if you wish to make a difference, consider making the following changes:

  • Buy paper from fair-trade, well managed, sustainable sources (for instance as labelled by the FSC)
  • Use handkerchiefs not tissues
  • Do not print unless you really need to
  • Give up using paper cups, kitchen towel, napkins, and other products which are not needed
  • Buy recycled paper
  • Buy unbleached paper products wherever possible
  • Buy chlorine-free paper products
  • Always re-cycle paper and do not send to landfill

Lets also remember: North Americans eating typical diets receive 93% of their dioxin exposure from meat and dairy products

If you’re eating the typical North American diet, this is where you are getting your dioxin from:

Re: sun exposure, vitamin D, and cancer in dark skin

Only UVB rays prompt vitamin D production. UVA rays can damage all skin tones. There are studies showing that exposure to UVB rays helps skin protect itself from UVA rays; the problem is determining when UVB rays are reaching your skin, since they have a shorter window of reaching earth (very short during winter - basically only a couple hours around noon) and cannot pass through clouds. UVA rays, which are cancer-causing, can reach earth and pass through clouds virtually any time of day as long as the sun is out.

Just because the sun is hitting your skin doesn’t mean you’re getting vitamin D or any of the other remarkable benefits of UVB ray exposure. And yes, instances of skin cancer are much lower in people with dark skin, but melanoma could still happen to anyone.

Causality is one strange concept. It is absolutely essential to our understanding of the so-called “manifest image” of the world, i.e., the world as perceived and navigated by human beings. (The distinction between the manifest and the scientific image was introduced by philosopher Wilfred Sellars.) It is crucial for us to distinguish between events that happen because (i.e., are caused by) other events, vs things that appear to be the result of chains of cause-effect but really aren’t. We think smoking, statistically speaking, causes cancer, meaning that there are physical events that make it more likely that if you are a smoker you will get cancer. But when a few years ago someone showed a statistically significant correlation between number of births in London and frequency of storks flying overhead, nobody cried out for a revision of human biology textbooks…

When it comes to the “scientific image,” i.e., how science tells us the world is, things are more complicated. Talk of causality is all over the place in the so-called “special sciences,” i.e., everything other than fundamental physics (up to and including much of the rest of physics). In the latter field, seems to me that people just can’t make up their minds. I’ve read articles by physicists, and talked to a number of them, and they seem to divide in two camps: those who argue that of course causality is still crucial even at the fundamental level, including in quantum mechanics. And those who say that because quantum mechanical as well as relativistic equations are time symmetric, and the very idea of causality requires time asymmetry (as in the causes preceding the effects), then causality “plays no role” at that level.

Both camps have some good reasons on their side. It is true that the most basic equations in physics are time symmetric, so that causality doesn’t enter into them. But it is also unquestionably true that we have to somehow explain the arrow of time and the fact that things do very much appear to happen one after the other. While we move freely back and forth the three spatial dimensions, we definitely don’t do that along the fourth, temporal, dimension. [keep reading]
