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.

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
 

Planet and People Killing Lessons from Lilly and Monsanto

This article notes how Eli Lilly give women cancer and treats it as well. Monsanto develops (GM) seeds that will love and depend upon its Round Up pesticide and probably spawn a reaction by the natural system akin to cancer and then Monsanto can develop an even stronger pesticide that will give people and the planet cancer at the same time. 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.

Beware of “Corporate” Petitions at “Respected” Petition sites

This one looks good until you ask yourself – Does the American Medical Association really care about patient’s rights or? (AMA – Get Involved
Encourage your patients to enter the health care debate by joining the AMA’s Patients’ Action Network. As a member, your patients can make a difference and …
www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/advocacy/get-involved.shtml )

Recently, another “action” group representing for-profit colleges circulated a similar kind of petition looking good but trying to protect their ability to convince adult students still eligible for student loans that their degree is a doorway to a new future but really is up to $40,000 for an Associate of Arts degree. Check the prices of community colleges – these private schools would have to be really outstanding at that price. At two-year colleges, the average cost for tuition and fees is $2,713.
