The world is an exceedingly strange place when products that are designed to kill unwanted and uncared for “pests” have fragrance chemicals added to change the way they smell, and those fragrance chemicals are better regulated than the ones in products we living (wanted and cared for?) humans are sold, for intimate use, on a daily basis.
1.indicating a person or thing that kills: insecticide
2.indicating a killing; murder: homicide
How is it that the fragrances added to pesticides are more regulated than the fragrances we are exposed to 24/7 now, from laundry, personal care, cleaning products, scented candles and air “fresheners” (among others, as everything is fragranced these days)?

A great new resource has been launched to guide mothers and mothers-to-be regarding wireless radiation hazards and safety precautions that need to be taken.
“Most pregnant women understand that they should stay away from cigarette smoke, avoid alcohol and be careful about eating potentially contaminated foods of any kind. The weight of evidence clearly supports the need to protect pregnant women from wireless radiation exposures as well.”
~ Dr. Devra Davis, University of California at Berkeley
Their advice is good for all of us to heed:

Wireless Warnings From the BioInitiative Report:
THE BIOINITIATIVE REPORT 2012
A Rationale for Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF)
The updated report is now available for download and I’ve skimmed through some of it. What is clear is that there is enough evidence to be concerned, very concerned, about the exposures we are being subjected to. Current global wireless (and other) safety standards are not adequate to protect us from some pretty serious harm to our health. The report calls for immediate action in order to reduce threats to public health.
If you think there’s more than enough evidence to call for immediate precaution, then please share the link to the report with your lawmakers and legislators, and pay attention to tips you see on ways to protect yourself and your family until regulatory changes are made. And don’t be afraid to discuss this with others.
What follows are snippets I copied from parts of the report, things that stood out the most for me. They are not my words, they are copied from the report. If you want to see the actual research, download the report, it’s all in there.
