Save the Dolphins (And the Humans)

On a recent vacation in Mexico, we enjoyed an indescribable experience of a lifetime:  Swimming with the dolphins.   They were friendly and playful, and seemed to enjoy contact with humans.  We swam with them, played with them and were lifted high into the air by their noses.

Restaurant Nightmare

Sunday brunch with family and friends is usually an enjoyable experience.  The biggest stress is to find a table that looks safe, away from scented people.  I can usually pick out people who smell like toxic chemicals, just by the vanity products they use, such as hair products.
May 26th started out well, and when a [...]

Feeling Sorry for Pets

Some dogs are very smart, and others, not so much.  Why is that?  Could it possibly be the scented dog shampoo that their loving owners use regularly? Like us humans, animals can react to toxic chemicals, feel stoned, confused, weak, disoriented.  But the poor dogs can’t verbalize this.  So they roll on the ground in [...]

Why the Baby Cries When Held by Certain People

Have you ever wondered why a newborn baby cries when certain people hold it, but not when others do?  “Do you want to hold the baby?” Then it starts fussing and crying.  Could it be that the baby does not like the smell of toxic perfumes, detergents and fabric softeners?  The poor baby is being [...]
