First Check out Mark

Today he left from BC and is hitchhiking across the country hoping to arrive at the Stanfield’s Factory in Nova Scotia in 21 days to raise money. What is so special about that? He is doing it in his underwear, in November, in Canada… to raise money for “Below-the-Waist” Cancer research.

You can support him by donating or even picking him up for a ride along the way!


 This is Disturbing..

I know it dates from last year but it popped up in my Facebook news feed today and it still quite disturbing: Genetically modified cows produce ‘human’ milk. I really can’t get my head around it.


Here is one about birthing:

“The low-tech approach to delivering babies in one Amish community may offer clues on how to safely reduce the rate of Cesarean-section deliveries in the United States, researchers say.”

Amish offers clues to lowering US C-section rate

Is this really news? Hospital have been failing women and jeopardizing their health and the health of babies for years. Pregnancy and birth are not diseases and the more hands-off a caregiver is the better the outcome! It isn’t rocket science, it’s Nature! Why go to the Amish? they could have looked at most midwives and the natural birthing community has been saying for years! Of course, this won’t change a thing.
