Autism, sign series for learning and cognitive behaviour, autism

One of the most controversial subjects on the internet these days (and especially social media) has to be autism. The stats point to autism increasing at an alarming rate to epidemic proportions and yet, instead of working together to find the cause or indeed causes (and a possible solution), the bickering continues and intensifies.

What could be worse (especially when you are a non smoker) than to take over an apartment, house or a vehicle where the previous owner or tenant was a smoker and the evidence is all too obvious. But don't despair, there are many solutions Preferably, these should be carried out before you even move in but I realize that this is not always practical. The ideal scenario is warm sunny weather and an empty property. Do not be tempted to use ...

Swear words have been around for a very long time but I would like to suggest a new one for these modern times. Roundup has got to be one of the most lethal products ever put together and sold to a previously unsuspecting public and yet, in spite of all the bad publicity Roundup has generated and the untold damage it has caused, people are still buying and using it. But Roundup (manufactured by Monsanto)  is not alone – here is a ...

blog image - fracking large

 Wherever I have lived in the past two or three years, the emotive subject of fracking has been hitting the local headlines. Yes, the USA, South Africa and the UK. And there are many reasons why fracking is so disliked and protest groups worldwide so vocal. Several countries have banned its use including Bulgaria, France, Germany and Ireland while the Czech government is seriously considering a ban. Many other countries have partial bans or moratoriums in place. What is fracking? Shale gas ...

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, the peanut allergy is one of the most common causes of food-related death, with some 3.3 million being allergic to nuts.

It is widely known that the mainstream media is well supported by the pharmaceutical industry (and its allies) when it comes to advertising income and so we should not be too surprised when that same media is so quick to jump on the bandwagon to attack anything natural or non-pharmaceutical that might actually improve our health. First it was vitamins under attack, now it is vitamin D A couple of months ago there were loads of headlines saying that vitamins were a ...

Nearly everyone you meet these days would seem to be suffering from an allergy or chronic condition or has a friend or relative who is.
