“Unless you experience
you will never know
true joy and contentment
– Dr. Charles Stanley
and the drum beat of Love
reflects the sound
of another Heart,
the One from
Eyes are blinded
by this rising Sun,
like the death of night
as we come
we truly Love.
And the song we hear,
from the joy we feel,
becomes the music
of our tears,
from a past
in our deeds,
Infrequent in our dance,
with little elation,
almost unknown romance,
of the tides
washing aplenty upon
of Blessed days,
countless in number
My Dear Friends,
and all around.
And this day,
is the most Beautiful
I have found.
Open your Heart,
open your eyes,
to the Love
in the eyes
of our children,
in the smiles
of our friends,
in the fellowship
of our neighbors,
in the precious Life
God has given us
This joyous moment
your whole life long.
Just remember the words
to your song,
and sing along.
that is in you
that is in the world.”
– 1 John 4
From our friends at the Underground Health Reporter:
we MUST become proactive and informed
to protect our children and ourselves
from the environment and products around us.
Please take the time to research and read.
To Love someone takes time, knowledge
and courage. Arm yourselves and your precious
children with knowledge and the will to survive.
We are at WAR
“We have met the enemy
and he is
– Walt Kelly
You may have less time than you think
if you do not take the time to think.

Startling Things You Never Suspected
Could Cause Cancer (but they do)
by Danica Collins
Most laundry detergents (The 1,4-dioxane found in laundry detergent is particularly harmful in the fact that the chemical binds easily to water and remains there. Even after water containing the chemical has been purified and filtered, low levels have been detected, indicating that it is not easily removed from water.
Numerous water supplies across the country have been found to be tainted with 1,4-dioxane. Try PENTA water (my favorite). Expensive? Well, a little pricey. But CHEAP compared to a stay in the hospital. And not painful at all. In fact, the company advertises that it “gives you a feeling of well being”. I found this to be true. Place it in the refrigerator and get it cold. Then drink a full bottle when you get up in the morning. Yes, you will have a feeling of well being. This good clean water, with a great taste, makes me float around the house for a long time. It’s not just an advertising line, it is true. Our fragile human bodies react beautifully to the good things, and the things that are good for you in life.
20 different laundry detergents from both conventional and “natural” brands were evaluated in one study. Evoxa, an independent, third-party laboratory that is highly respected for its rigorous methods and high standards, conducted all product testing. The results are as follows:
1. Tide (P&G) – 55 parts per million (ppm) Gulp!
2. Ivory Snow Gentle (P&G) – 31 ppm
3. Tide Free (P&G) – 29 ppm
4. Purex (Dial Corp.) – 25 ppm
5. Gain 2X Ultra (P&G) – 21 ppm
6. Cheer BrightClean Detergent (P&G) – 20 ppm
7. Era 2X Ultra (P&G) – 14 ppm
8. Arm & Hammer (Church & Dwight Co.) – 5.0 ppm
9. Wisk 2X Ultra (Sun Products Corp.) – 3.9 ppm
10. Woolite Complete Detergent (Reckitt Benckiser) – 1.3 ppm
11. All laundry detergent (Unilever) – 0.6 ppm
12. Dreft powdered detergent (P&G) – non-detectable (ND)
13. Sun Burst (Sun Products Corp.) – ND
1. Planet Ultra Liquid detergent – 6.1 ppm
2. Mrs. Meyers laundry detergent – 1.5 ppm
3. Clorox Green Works Natural detergent – ND
4. Ecos laundry detergent (Earth Friendly Products) – ND This is the product my family uses.
5. Life Tree Laundry Liquid – ND
6. Method Squeaky Green laundry detergent – ND
7. Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent – ND
Now, what do I do? This reminds me of the time when, in 1984, I finally realized that smoking tobacco was going to kill me and death would come in a very painful and miserable way. Yes, I left the good Doctor’s office, and thought about what he said: “Bill, remember, ALL SMOKERS QUIT!”. I toddled home, and THREW AWAY all tobacco products, including my beloved briar wood pipe.
Yes, throw all the dangerous products away. TODAY. The very best investment you can possibly make is in the health and safety of your children and yourself. If you hesitate, it could be the costliest moment in your life or the life of your child.

[Editors Note: (Companies in general whose products were found to be free of cancer causing 1,4-Dioxane include: Dr. Bronner’s, Aubrey Organics (my favorite), Burt’s Bees, Desert Essence, Dr. Hauschka, EO, TerrEssential, Zia Fresh, and Avalon Organics.] read more
Other Startling Things You Never Suspected
Could Cause Cancer:
Granite countertops (which emit radon)
High doses of Vitamin E
Repressed anger (Yes, let it all out, but not on each other! A good pillow fight helps. The loser can clean up the feathers.)
Rancid peanuts and seeds
Canned tomatoes (Yes, the can is the problem)
Food laced with pesticides (Simple solution: buy ORGANIC!)
Vitamin D deficiency in the body (Simple solution: get out of the house. Go outside and enjoy God’s beautiful gift of sunshine. Did you know the further away from the equator you go, the higher the level of vitamin d deficiency diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Dementia (Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia), Prostate cancer, Schizophrenia, and Heart disease. Symptoms of deficiency include pain, muscle weakness, increased blood pressure, and depression. read more
Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin because the body naturally produces it when the skin is directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get the necessary daily amount through your diet or supplements. Vitamin D-rich foods include milk, cheese, and fatty fish like tuna, salmon, and mackerel. Certain foods such as cereals, orange juice, soy products, yogurt, and margarine are sometimes fortified with vitamin D.
The National Institutes of Health recommends that most adults get about 600 IUs (International Units) of vitamin D daily.
