    Sow and Dipity with Shelley Levis: All The Buzz About Bees (March 29, 2015)

    in Gardening

    Are we bringing home plants from the garden centre’s that are actually harming the bee’s? As we become more aware of our gardening practices, we know that pesticide use is bad and that biodiversity is good in our home gardens. People are incorporating more bee attracting plants rich with nectar and pollen into their gardens, providing bee homes and even starting hives of their own. But those insecticide treated plants we are buying may very well be the death of our friendly pollinators. In todays show we will discuss the issue behind Neonicotinoids and what we can do to make our gardens a safe haven for bee’s

    Shirley's Sugar Show Episodes!

    in Family

    Welcome to Cross Link Radio's The Sugar Show episodes. Last season we broke the week down into Business, Inflammation, Wellness, Biofilm, and Leisure. This season we only have one category, Sugar! Every Wednesday we’ll explore sugars from the plant to the toilet. Shirley has found experts in all kinds of sugars, some you’ve heard of and some you haven’t. Tune in Wednesdays as we explore if sugar is really all bad.

    I'll be talking to physicians, researchers, and industry people about specific sugars. Dr. John Peldyak will co-host on occasion with his vast knowledge of behind the sugar knowledge illuminating points that we'd never think about, sugar for erasing wrinkles? Sugar as insecticide? We're not kidding.

    We think you'll look forward to the insights uncovered and you'll find that life can still be oh so sweet.

    If Obama doesn’t try to get a third term as President he can always make up fairy tales for a living. He’s pretty good at it now. ISIS has just overrun an Iraqi army base and executed 300 soldiers there. ISIS is still swearing to attack the US and there continues to be a lot of terrorist chatter about attacking the southern border. A few Tomahawk missiles aren’t going to take out ISIS any more than spraying insecticide around your baseboards would take out a nest of cockroaches. They’re actually quite similar. The fact that he continues to hire and promote moslems and say that Islam is a religion of peace tells you nothing meaningful is happening. Meanwhile Putin marches on.

    PESTICIDES:  Then, Now and Their Transition into Artificial Biology

    Wednesday, August 6, 2014 – 1:00-3:00PM Pacific
    (2-4pm Mountain; 3-5pm Central, 4-6pm Eastern)

    “Poison’s My Game ….. What’s Yours®” with Dr. Hildy® - Series

    Pesticides are chemicals designed to kill a variety of pests, such as weeds, insects, rodents, and fungi. They can be characterized on the basis of function—insecticide, herbicide, rodenticide, fungicide, and others—and on the basis of chemical class. Insecticides accounted for nearly 25% of reported pesticide use in California in the late 1990s.

    Though there many classes of pesticides, organochlorines such as DDT and dieldrin, are largely banned for use in the U.S., although some are still used. Widely used in the 1960s and 1970s, organochlorines are acutely toxic and very persistent in the environment. Many have been shown to be carcinogens, reproductive toxicants, or both.

    The recent push towards organic and “safe” foods has been partly due to a backlash of citizens concerned about the toxicity of these pesticides and how much of that is unintentionally getting into the foods they are designed to protect.

    I was just thinking...Is WAR the way of the world?

    in Education

    Is WAR the way of the world?
     Sarin is very lethal and kills in minutes. Sarin was developed by the Nazi in 1938. It is tasteless, odorless and invisible to the naked eye and you don't know you have been exposed until you become sick. Sarin is similar to an insecticide and it effect your nerves, respiration and muscles and causes complete neurological failure. Death occurs when you can not breathe. Sarin is 50x more lethal than cyanide.
    All for our Convenience...
    The FBI and CIA wants to put drones in every city because we never know who our neighbors are.
    But is convenience really convenient? Or is it another brick in the wall of human slavery?

    in Environment

    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host, June Stoyer, will be joined by special guest host, Tom Theobald to talk to Dr. Chensheng (Alex) Lu, Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology at Harvard about his research on honeybees and neonicotinoids.  Dr. Lu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. Dr. Lu's primary research interest is in the area of pesticide exposure and health risk assessment using biological monitoring approach. Dr. Lu is developing a research program integrating novel exposure assessment tools, physiologically-base pharmacokinetic models and cumulative risk assessment models. Dr. Lu's current research projects include; 1) exploring the feasibility of assessing pesticide exposure using saliva as a biomarker, 2) assessing children's aggregate pesticide exposures in a longitudinal manner, 3) investigation the variation of dietary consumption patterns and the corresponding pesticide exposure, and 4) estimating absorbed pesticide dose in children and farm worker population using Exposure-Related Dose Estimating Model. Dr. Lu currently serves as an ad hoc member on the US EPA Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Scientific Advisory Panel, and an ad hoc member on the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) grant peer-review panel.

    Recent studies have shown that Genetically Modified foods GMO can cause digestive, liver and kidney problems. If used for a long period of time they can even cause cancer and can kill you. So why doesn't the federal government do something to protect us?
    My guest this week is Mr. S.D. WELLS. He is a researcher and writer for Natural News and Mike Adams. He has been researching chemicals in foods, drinks, candy, gum, cosmetics, skin care products and even cigarettes for 20 years. Mr Wellas believes GMO is the most dangerous health risk ever, and "what you don't know will hurt you" is his slogan, because ignoring this risk doesn't make it go away, in fact, it makes it worse. GMO is pesticide, insecticide and herbicide inside your food and out. There is bug and weed killer inside corn, soy, canola, tobacco, alfalfa, beets (MSG) and Aspartame. Mr Wells is an expert on these and has written dozens of articles, a book, and have recorded skype videos with the Health Ranger, Mike Adams, Editor of NaturalNews. He runs the website at 14AndOut.com and several blog sites that expose more about chemicals in foods.

    The Neonicotinoid View: The Ontario Bee Poisonings of 2012

    in Environment

    In a document titled, “Evaluation of Canadian Bee Mortalities that Coincided with Corn Planting in Spring 2012”, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) reported some of the events of this historic crisis. “PMRA received a significant number of honeybee mortality reports from the provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario. A portion of these mortalities were determined to be associated with spray drift, however, an unusually high number of reports of honey bee mortalities were received from beekeepers in corn growing regions of Ontario and Quebec. The majority of reports were from southern Ontario, involving over 40 beekeepers and 240 different bee yard locations. Additionally, one report was received from Quebec involving eight bee yards. Timing and location of these honey bee mortalities appeared to coincide with planting corn seed treated with insecticides. An evaluation was undertaken to assess whether pesticides may have contributed to the mortalities and whether regulatory action was required. This evaluation focused only on pollinator mortalities that coincided with planting treated corn.
    The information evaluated suggests that planting of corn seeds treated with the nitro guanidine insecticides clothianidin and/or thiamethoxam contributed to the majority of the bee mortalities that occurred in corn growing regions of Ontario and Quebec in Spring 2012. The likely route of exposure was insecticide contaminated dust generated during the planting of treated corn seed. The unusual weather conditions in the spring of 2012 were likely also a contributing factor.”
    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts June Stoyer and guest co-host, Tom Theobald, talk to the Vice-President of the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association, Tibor Szabo. Tibor is a 3rd generation beekeeper and the largest queen producer in Canada. Stay tuned!
