Added January 25, 2019, Under: Children's Health, Dental Care, Diseases, Technology

Our children's baby teeth (like umbilical cords although less controversial) contain stem cells that can cure diseases and grow replacement tissue and bones in the body.

Good News About The Ozone Layer!

Added November 20, 2018, Under: Environment, Technology

A UN report has given the good news that the ozone level is finally healing. Several decades ago, we were warned that the Earth's protective layer was getting thinner and had been since the 1970s - and we all became very alarmed at the harm we were doing with our aerosol sprays and coolants from our refrigerators. We were told how the use of man-made chemicals (which we came to know as CFS or chlorofluorocarbons and which release chlorine and bromine), were ...

Added November 16, 2018, Under: Environment, Technology

Would you believe that some of us have found that the task of ironing is perfect for stress relief and even therapeutic! And yes, I know that the whole concept has become a bit outdated.

Is “Recycling” Plastic The Wrong Choice To Make?

Added November 12, 2018, Under: Environment, Technology

Unless we are very careful or very fortunate, we all have to put up with unnecessary plastic in our lives. Even though we may do our best to cut down on its use, it is a constant battle all the time when supermarkets, and other suppliers insist on packaging their products in this commodity. Of course, we firmly believe that we are doing the right thing by recycling. But is that really so? Recently, recycling has become unsustainable In many areas, recycling for households means ...

Homes Should Not Be Just For People, But For Nature Too!

Added July 22, 2018, Under: Environment, How To, Technology

Here in the UK, I am involved in a local Community Land Trust which does its best to build houses for local people (at a reasonable rent) who could not otherwise afford to live in the area - they don't earn enough. Like many places, there is a shortage here of affordable housing and so the Government constantly encourages housing associations and developers to build more - but this is often at the cost of losing local farm land or even ...
