Climate change deniers need to dust off their brains – grin.

Have humans contributed to the growth of deserts? Yep, plenty of proof there even in USA – remember Dust Bowl? What about diseases that could be carried to us from sand/dust storms in Asia and Sahara? Read on and find out for yourself – hack, wheeze, ack – that dust has a garlic flavor – must be Chinese – smile.

Atmospheric Movement of Microorganisms in Clouds of Desert Dust and Implications for Human Health
Billions of tons of desert dust move through the atmosphere each year. The primary source regions, which include the Sahara and Sahel regions of North Africa and the Gobi and Takla Makan regions of Asia, are capable of dispersing significant quantities of desert dust across the traditionally viewed oceanic barriers.
Asian dust storms can take from 7 to 9 days to cross the Pacific Ocean. Dust storms moving off the west coast of Africa can take from 3 to 5 days to reach the Caribbean and Americas.
During an African dust event that occurred from 25 to 28 July 2005
These data demonstrate the ability of dust storms to impact air quality at significant distances from their sources (Tampa Bay is >6,500 km west of the coast of North Africa).Read more at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

This article notes how Eli Lilly give women cancer and treats it as well.

Look for a partnering strategy between the two.

Breast Cancer Action Asks You To Be The Billboard

Eli Lilly has taken pinkwashing to a whole new level. By adding rBGH to the products they sell, Eli Lilly has completed its cancer profit circle: it creates cancer with rBGH, it sells cancer treatment drugs like Gemzar, and it sells a drug, Evista, to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women at high risk of the disease. Eli Lilly’s cancer drugs made $2,683,000,000 for the company in 2008. Its potentially carcinogenic dairy hormone made millions of dollars in the same year. Eli Lilly is milking cancer.
