Trying really hard to understand how it all fits together

Skin Deep

Skin Deep is a website by the Environmental Working Group – go and check out what’s really in the products you are using.  This is a bit scary/shocking.  Also check out their sunscreen test.  If the product you are using isn’t there, you can add it.  Warning though, this will make you think twice about […]

Billing the environment

Orange have started charging for itemized billing… I’ve always been impressed by the fact that they didn’t charge, it’s even been one of the reasons for sticking with them.

Dogma all the same

I just watched Richard Dwarkin’s Enemies of Reason on Channel 4. I’ve wanted to write for a while about the group of doctors and scientists who are trying to stop the NHS from funding homeopathy and especially the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital.

Zonked

Over the years countless friends and even complete strangers have asked if I might be anemic, I used to have very pale skin, less so now, I used to wear blusher just so people wouldn’t ask. A while ago a doctor suggested that I get my iron levels checked. Kind of ironically, three blood tests […]

Climate Change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. Download from here. 2500 scientists from 130 countries and 6 years research. The report backs up what we* already believe, but maybe drums it in a little bit more, which can only be good. When I was in Berlin the awareness of environmental issues were everywhere, where […]
