You've most likely heard that neonicotinoids are not good for bees but, did you know that neonicotinoids are like an addictive drug to them? Apparently "neonicotinoids target the same mechanisms in the bee brain that are affected by nicotine in the human brain". Click here

Speaking of toxic substances, did you know that although personal care products sold in stores may be labeled as organic, natural, or green, doesn't mean they are? In fact, since companies are not required to disclose a full list of the ingredients, those words may just be on there to help sell the product and not at all reflect what goes in to it. Click here

Have you heard about a city in Utah where citizens have been ordered not to drink the water because of chemical contamination? For most of you reading this, you may be nowhere near Utah, but it would seem to serve as a reminder...storing water for drinking would seem to be a really good idea, no matter where you live.

That's it from me for this week. If you haven't seen the "Double, Quadruple Rainbows" picture under On The Lighter Side, I would encourage you to take a look. I've seen a few doubles, and even a triple, but not that many! Click here

You Can Take It With You.!
By Rene Westbrook (Esprit)

Recently, members of the Yelm community were treated to a rollicking good time in the form of a Depression era play entitled "You Can't Take It With You". Aside from the antics of a very eccentric family and their elevated sense of creative explorations, the play worked best when it brought to life ideas of accumulated wealth vs personal fulfillment. The young lovers in this farce came from different sides of the tracks; he, the son of a wealthy businessman, and she, the product of the loony ones who populated the center of her universe. After many mishaps and incantations about the carefree life, the two families eventually get together and find common ground, knowing that happiness within the heart is priceless! Getting into my car, I reflected on my own life's lessons around balancing a creative career against financial security. These pursuits over time have been challenging, but doable to varying degrees of success. As wonderful as all of it was, I knew long ago that the real issues I wanted to experience could only be found outside the realm of the ordinary. Whatever the grand and sweeping gestures from my art career, I had to find the substance of my "soul". It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher appears! I looked at myself in the rear view mirror and smiled.

Bees are addicted to pesticide-laden junk food, too
We don’t always do what’s good for us, especially when it comes to food. That kale smoothie? Not really feeling it, thanks — but that trough of french fries? Maybe I’ll just have one. Like us, bees have trouble making the healthiest choices, according to a new study, published in Nature. In fact, they may prefer food that is laced with common agricultural pesticides: When choosing between two samples of sugar syrup in this experiment, both honeybees and bumblebees showed a preference for the neonicotinoid-laced sample. Here’s more from Science Daily:

“Neonicotinoids target the same mechanisms in the bee brain that are affected by nicotine in the human brain,” [said Geraldine Wright, lead scientist on the study]. The fact that bees show a preference for food containing neonicotinoids is concerning as it suggests that like nicotine, neonicotinoids may act like a drug to make foods containing these substances more rewarding. “If foraging bees prefer to collect nectar containing neonicotinoids, this could have a knock-on negative impact on whole colonies and on bee populations.”

Utah city orders citizens to avoid drinking water after chemical contamination; what will you do in a water emergency?
Water emergencies appear to be occurring more often these days, leaving citizens scrambling to find safe drinking water when public supplies become contaminated. The latest case is still ongoing and concerns the public water supplies of Nibley City, Utah. On April 23, occupants of the small town were ordered not to drink the water after residents had noticed it had a foul odor and contacted the city. It was suspected that the contamination came from a recent diesel spill near a spring that supplies the city with its drinking water. Tests over the next few days confirmed the presence of diesel fuel in the water, and the system has been repeatedly flushed since then. However, as of April 27, the city remains under a "Do-not-Drink" order. Nibley City only has around 5,000 citizens, but local stores and supermarkets have already run out of bottled water. Residents have been forced to drive to nearby towns to obtain safe drinking water. The water crisis in Nibley City seems to be nearly over, but it should serve as a reminder to all of us that we should never take our water resources for granted.

Something Worth Knowing

'Green' personal care products made by multinational corporations still emit toxic chemicals
Think those home cleaning and personal care products you've been using are good for the environment and healthy for your body? Looks like it's time to think again, after recent findings from University of Melbourne researchers demonstrated that many of those "green" products aren't necessarily so safe after all. In fact, they're downright toxic, emitting hazardous carcinogenic chemicals into the air you breathe. Dr. Anne Steinemann, a world expert on air quality and environmental pollutants as it relates to health, says that just because something is labeled as organic, natural or green, doesn't mean it is. Steinemann, who is a professor of civil engineering and the Chair of Sustainable Cities from the Department of Infrastructure Engineering at Melbourne School of Engineering, led this particular study.

Labels not required to tell the full story
She explains that many people face a lack of information about the products they're using. This is understandable, as many companies aren't under any pressure to create safer products; since the United States doesn't have regulations requiring a full listing of ingredients on consumer products, they don't have to. Using the word "fragrance" is sufficient enough to convey a hodgepodge of chemicals that go into making many common household and personal care products.
