OIA requests from Landcare Research indicate the alarming extent to which 1080 is in our food chain

Rangitikei Environmental Health Watch

“Landcare Research maintains a national database of vertebrate pesticide residue test results, from samples of plants, soil and animal tissue and corresponding background information submitted to its Toxicology Laboratory at Lincoln.”

Lawyer Sue Grey and Regional Councillor Kathy White have obtained information via an OIA request from Landcare Research that confirms after 50 years of extensive application of 1080 poison (a Class 1A Ecotoxin) to NZ’s environment that 1080 is well established in our food chain. Water content has trebled in the past five years. Were it not for this info request we would all of course be none the wiser which is why it is advisable that you exercise the precautionary principle with regards to the food that you eat.
This is what Landcare’s website says regarding testing information.

My tree friend

Quakers, social justice and revolution

I subscribe to poem-a-day (https://poets.org/).

Today’s poem is “To the Pine Tree” (which can be found at the end of this).

That reminded me of the blog post I had written in 2019 about my tree friend.


August 26, 2019:

I just returned from an amazing event, the National Network Assembly, held at the Des Moines YMCA Camp near Boone, Iowa. From information about the Assembly we received ahead of time, I knew I wouldn’t have WiFi or cell phone access, so I didn’t even bring my laptop. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post though, there were so many things I wanted to write about and I was missing my (nearly) daily writing, so I wrote two blog posts by hand.

As I sat in Quaker Meeting yesterday, at Bear Creek Friends meeting, which is in a rural setting, surrounded by trees, the image of my tree friend…

Muhammad Ali and me

Quakers, social justice and revolution

Athletes are once again demonstrating leadership to call attention to, and demand change to stop injustice. It has been amazing to see kneeling during the national anthem, for which Colin Kaepernick was vilified, now supported by athletes and supporters of all sports.

We are being reminded of how Muhammad Ali was similarly treated when he refused to participate with the military draft during the Vietnam War. His courage in doing so. The example he set that continues to inspire us today.

In the national memory of the Vietnam War, anyone who violated draft laws is typically seen as selfish, cowardly and unpatriotic. It was one thing for civil rights activists to confront the government by breaking the law; by 1967, many of them were regarded as among the nation’s finest citizens. But if a citizen defied the draft laws to take a similar stand, few saw it as the resisters…

Deadly antibiotics: And your Doctor will hand these out everyday…..

The PPJ Gazette

Image may contain: text that says 'Moxifloxacin (Avelox) ofloxacin (Floxin) 6 OF THE DEADLIEST ANTIBIOTICS YOU CAN TAKE Ciprofloxacin Gemifloxacin Norfloxacin (Cipro) (Facive) (Noroxin) Levofloxacin (Levaquin) Warning Fluoridated Pharmaceuticals may be the deadliest antibiotics on the market. Besides nerve damage, they have been associated with damage to other body systems, including your musculoskeletal system, eyes and kidneys. Why? It has to do with the fact that fluoroquinolones are antibiotics whose potency has been "kicked up' by the addition of a fluoride molecule Fluoride increases permeability into hard-to-penetrate tissues, such as your brain. ~Mercola FB/ DavidAvocadoWolfe'These drugs kill the mitocondria in your red blood cells. Once you take them, your body can never make its own Vit. D again. These were developed for use with chemo. To fight the infection chemo causes as it destroys the body. Except, when added to chemo, death came faster than the projected profits could be realized. The FDA allowed the drug makers to put them out as general antibiotics. Not to be prescribed to people over 60. Or in combination with prednisone and ibprofen. Yet Dr’s. do it every day and dont care about the terrible damage and possible deaths these drugs may cause.

Disaster after Disaster: Rare derecho storm wreaks havoc on U.S. Midwest – 10 million acres of crops destroyed

The Extinction Protocol

Corn FieldOn Monday evening, a violent, fast-moving thunderstorm complex known as derecho tore a 700-mile path from Nebraska to Indiana. Winds over 70 mph battered Chicago and as of Thursday afternoon, more than 300,000 people were still without power in northern Illinois as well as Iowa, the state hardest hit. The destructive storm laid siege to more than 10 million acres of Iowa’s corn and soybean crop, devastating farmers and capping off what has already been a difficult few years of farming for many.

Up to 43 percent of the state’s corn and soybean crop has suffered damage from the storms that brought winds exceeding 100 miles per hour at times, a severe blow to a $10 billion industry that’s central to the Hawkeye State’s economy. The magnitude of the battered vegetation was even visible on the same weather satellites used to track Monday’s violent thunderstorms. Steve Bowen, a meteorologist and…
