Reasons to love..

Brighton:
1. Kyle’s Manna at 24 Coombe Road, delish live sandwiches and dessert
2. The walk back into town via the Coombe Road allotments and Kemp Town, and local honey from the allotments for sale in the Churchill Square farmers market
3. Browsing the shops in the North Laines
4. Kate’s Lucky Me for sale in The Guarana shop and juice bar
5. The smell of the sea

London:
1. That indescribable feeling of joy when the train pulls into the station and I know I am home again…

The Age of Stupid

I went to see this at the weekend – and while it is an important film that everyone would benefit from watching, I was very disappointed that there was no mention whatsoever of the connection between climate change and livestock farming. And while I haven’t seen ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ I understand that movie also glosses over this aspect. Mind you I shouldn’t be surprised, we all know how attached people are to eating meat and dairy and we wouldn’t want to upset anyone would we?

I was also handed a flyer from Sustainable Haringey who are planning Haringey Carbon Reduction Fortnight in December. Which is a great idea, don’t get me wrong, but some of the ideas they are putting forward?! ‘Make public transport free for a fortnight’ WHAT?! The tubes and buses are crowded enough as it is, do they really think that it is the cost that is making people use their cars?!

Well actually, that is the only ridiculous suggestion. The rest all make sense to me. Apart from the glaring omission – how about stopping eating meat for those two weeks? Or at least for two days in the fortnight?

OK that’s my rant over with.

some interesting things to listen to, watch and read

An excerpt from Dr Miller’s talk
And this is fantastic – wish they would do this at Waterloo station. Anyone want to organise?!
And these are DELISH!

Gabriel Cousens has published some data including the following:

Monsanto’s GMO 810 corn causes sterility according to the Austrian Government. The same GMO corn also contains the cauliflower mosaic virus which, when ingested, lowers the bodies CD4 cells to a point which, on immune tests, indicate that a person has HIV/Aids. GMO corn is a staple part of the diet of many parts of Africa. Be aware that in the US most of the corn products sold are GMO – so keep off the tacos and tortillas when you are visiting!

The Gardasil vaccine (which has been manufactured as a so called vaccine against cervical cancer and has been administered to young girls in the US, and possibly here in the UK?) can cause death, collapse and chronic illness in young women and girls, including a new ‘disease’ called Juvenile ALS, a fatal condition in which the nervous system is slowly destroyed while consciousness remains unimpaired. Cervical cancer is easily detected and cured in early stages and is not a major killer of women. Gardasil also contains substances which may cause sterility in women and any protection only lasts a few years anyway.
