Protecting human health has always been a race between action and disaster. Consider how long society waited to remove lead from gasoline and paint, and the disaster that inaction inflicted upon generations of children and their brain development. As our technologies race ahead of our prudence, we’ve learned that local actions can have universal ramifications, for better or worse.
In a letter to the legislature, 15 of our local PeaceHealth pediatricians signed a statement in support of HB 3364, Beyond Toxics’ bill to protect kids, elders, and our fragile ecosystem from pesticides!
Good on our local pediatricians! Let’s applaud their strong and vocal stance to protect children!
Bees are really cool. I have two different bee families happily buzzing and sipping nectar in my backyard. One was a real surprise! I had put out a beautiful bird house that I bought from a vendor at Saturday Market. Instead of a family of finches, I attracted a batch of bumble bees. I see them going in and out of the opening into which they stuffed bits of fluff and string to give themselves privacy!
