I almost fell over in my chair the other day when I read this one in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The chemicals that resist fire damage can easily be imagined as harsh substances. Now imagine those substances going in your family's stomach. Traces of a flame retardant often used to on furniture and walls have been found in peanut butter, beef, and cold cuts. If you haven't moved to organic yet, this information should start a fire beneath your eating habits to change!
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: One of the most toxic professions is working in a beauty salon. The chemicals to dye, perm, and straighten hair are known to be highly dangerous. The owner of this salon took steps in every part of her business to go green, go organic. The health of her employees improved; and clients soon turned to prefer the natural way to go.

Just like the start of an AA meeting, and with much respect for how they start their meetings, here it goes: I am Dr. Leslie Hewitt and I am a member of the CCA. The California Chiropractic Association is the organization I have decided to step up and assist with leadership as the new Chair of Conventions and Seminars...
Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: First find your inner "ROR" and then you will increase your Return On Relationships, in every aspect of your life. Dr. Hewitt discusses why she is involved in the California Chiropractic Association in this article. Taken from a more global view, it is truly a call to action for everybody to get involved and give back in whatever capacity they feel comfortable in. This is not limited to DCs, rather it is Dr. Hewitt role modeling for all of us how to live a service oriented life while building and maintaining our relationships.
Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Many pet parents are faced with what to do when their favorite friend has great mental awareness but can no longer walk - either rear legs only or all four legs. For some families, the solution is a cart - a doggie wheel chair. Eddie's Wheels makes some of the best balanced, most comfortable carts out there - ask Auggie.

The late, extraordinary homeopathic historian, Julian Winston, presented a visual construct of 'what is homeopathy and what is not' within an historical context. It is republished here courtesy of his wife, homeopath and Chairperson International Council for Homeopathy – Gwyneth Evans...

The more I work with chronically ill people, the bigger my organic garden gets. As a naturopathic physician I deal with a lot of chronically ill people. Many of them have been through the conventional medical system with no success, so they show up at my doorstep. One day Steve showed up. Over six feet tall and 200 pounds, he dwarfed me, and was quick to mention that my hair was thinning...
Editor's Note from Wendy Wells: Walter Crinnion is well-known for his knowledge and enthusiasm about Environmental Medicine.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and several State OSHA programs are investigating questions and complaints from hair salon owners and workers about possible formaldehyde exposure from using Brazilian Blowout and other hair smoothing products. Some of these products have been labeled as "formaldehyde-free..."
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Beauty can come at a price. Cost is only one aspect of what is charged. Shimmering hair may soak your body with toxins such as formaldehyde, a price that will may play hard on your health in the future. Brazalian Blowout and other hair smoothing products are being investigated by OSHA as dangerous and the product labeling as misleading. Many countries, counties, and states are not waiting and starting their own call for caution, and in some cases, even removed some lines from the market.

Here’s a riddle I’ve created around chin hair: “What is something you can see, but can’t feel; can’t see, but can feel and see and feel, but can’t do anything about?” No matter how many times I’ve stood in front of my billion times magnified mirror, chin hair riddles me...
Editor´s Note from Tina Rayner: As crazy as it may be that I'm even admitting I have them, my chin hairs have taught me three spiritual lessons that can lead us all to being what the enlightened teacher Ramtha called, "joyfully free."
