How many are up there polluting our skies?

Posted by msrb on March 22, 2008

There’s a fundamental systemic problem. It’s called exponential growth economy and it’s degrading, polluting, tearing apart, destroying and otherwise killing off everything in its domain. In the absence of a ‘radical’ change to the economic system our world is rapidly falling apart.

Emergency Health Warnings: Toxic Honey Poisoning

Posted by feww on March 22, 2008

[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 6. Toxic Honey Poisoning, March 22, 2008]

Do NOT Consume New Zealand Honey!

In New Zealand several people have been treated for toxic honey poisoning. Toxic Honey Poisoning has killed, incapacitated and hospitalized scores of people since 1974.

Ingesting high levels of tutin toxin can result in “vomiting, delirium, giddiness, increased excitability, stupor, coma, violent convulsions” and death.

Consumers, especially pregnant women, are strongly advised to avoid eating New Zealand honey.

A teaspoon of toxic honey can severely affect human nervous system, cause seizures and lead to death. Consumers who develop symptoms of tutin poisoning MUST contact the health authorities immediately.

New Zealand Tourism Claims More Victims

Posted by feww on March 22, 2008

Four More Tourists killed in New Zealand

Four members of a Chinese family from Hong Kong, including a girl aged 10, were the latest victims of New Zealand Tourism. The only surviving member of the family, a 30-year-old woman, is in serious condition. Original report

Chinese Embassy in New Zealand should sue for substantial damages on behalf of the victims family. It can easily be proven that 95 percent of New Zealand drivers and a large percentage of the cars in New Zealand are NOT road worthy!
