DeodoRANT – Spray The Can or Can The Spray?

Give Your Naked Bod a Treat - Cancer!

Go The Spray?

Cancer: Go the spray? If you like to pop into the gym occasionally it’s almost impossible to avoid a cloud of carcinogenic toxins wafting around in the change-rooms. These are easy to detect as they insist on having loud offensive chemical conversations with your nose. It is the olfactory equivalent of yobs on mobiles in public transport and cafes. The boring rude loudness would not be so bad except these stinky chemicals are usually loaded up with carcinogens, nerve toxins and other unpleasant nasties. Go the spray?

Memory Loss: Ask the average gym junkie or bunny if they would like to spray this poison on their breakfast and then eat it and they will invariably look at you with wide eyed astonishment responding in the negative. Go The Spray? NO WAY JOSE! They will retort! Of course NOT! Well DURRR. I see. So let me ask. . . why do you think you’re breathing? Cause it feels good? Not at all my buff and gleaming friend. The fact is you are breathing because you are feeding on the air. If you do not comprehend this statement or if you perhaps doubt this, try stopping for a few minutes. Do you see where we’re going here? Exactly . . .you will die if you stop breathing for a few minutes it’s true. Hmmm. Ah ha! Air = food. Breathing = feeding. OK, got it! Go the spray?

Lung Damage: Why oh why do people not make the connection? Breathing the chemicals they put into these products after a workout is the same as eating the crap right out of the can. If . . .every time you come in from your hour or so of exercise to a change-room, and your cells are crying out – HUNGRY for food – you put the crap in the can into your brain, blood, cells and therefore you entire body – you are poisoning yourself. Go the spray? No way Jose! Simple eh? Well apparently not. One has lost count of the number of roid rage episodes your Quantumised columnist has had as a result of pointing out this simple and obvious truth to the deodorizing delinquents of damnation. I would rather be stick in a busload of yammering yobs than to encounter a cloud of carcinogens after workout. If you must put that crap on your body, please, please, please get a roll on so the only person you poison is yourself.

Vomiting and Nausea: Part of the problem is that people trust that the corporate pimps and pickpockets who push this junk with aggressive, loud and ever so seductive advertising, are actually respectable and adequately regulated. That would be two very courageous – or perhaps foolish – assumptions to make. Go the spray? Time for peeps to get real.

Brittle Hair and Hair Loss:  And if you think the crap in deodorants may be toxic then consider the facts in a broader context. The following quotes and links pertain to one of the most highly respected on-line health experts Dr Mercola

Lead and arsenic aren’t listed among the ingredients of lip gloss and eyeliner. However, Environmental Defence, a Canadian environmental group tested dozens of common cosmetics products and found that virtually all of them were contaminated with heavy metals.

Researchers purchased cosmetics in Toronto, and sent them to an accredited laboratory to have them tested for the presence of arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, beryllium, selenium, thallium and nickel. The items tested included foundations, concealers, powders, blushes, bronzers, mascaras, eyeliners, eyeshadows, lipsticks and glosses.

According to the Montreal Gazette:

“None of the products tested contained mercury, but lead was detected in 96 percent of the products, arsenic in 20 percent and cadmium in 51 percent. Nickel was found in all the products tested, beryllium in 90 percent, thallium in 61 percent and selenium in 14 percent.”Contaminants in personal care products are one of countless examples of environmental toxin exposures that you’re better off avoiding.

According to the report, over time heavy metals can build up in your body leading to a number of health problems, including:

  • Cancer
  • Memory loss
  • Cardiovascular, skeletal, blood, immune system, kidney and renal problems
  • Lung damage
  • Reproductive and developmental disorders
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches
  • Neurological problems
  • Nerve, joint and muscle disorders
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Brittle hair and hair loss

Climate Change Denial – The Very Ugly Truth

13 02 2010

I'm as Mad as Hell and I'm not going to take it anymore

While concern world-wide over climate change has risen steadily and sharply over the past 5 years the latest polling of public attitudes to climate change locally tells a sad and distrubing story. The number of people in Australia, Britian and the USA who believe that climate change is a serious problem has actually fallen in recent years. Why is it so? According to a piece by Simon Butler published in Green Left Weekly (Issue 825 – February 10, 2010) the causes can be grouped under the umbrella of the Climate Change Denial Industry. Here’s how they do it.


Are you getting this?

You see climate change deniers are free to act like adversarial lawyers whereas scientists are far more circumspect and aim for factual objectivity. According to Andrew Glickson on the ABC’s unleashed blog July 2009 – deniers tend to scan for errors “real or imagined” and will use any minor discrepancies as justification to undermine entire reports and much otherwise sound scientific data and output.

Case in point. A small factual error in the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report concerning Himalayan glacial melt projections. Climate deniers have seized on this one small error (since corrected) to damn the entire 938 page IPCC report.

You were warned . .this is the UGLY truth about climate change denial. It gets worse.

A very nasty stick that the deniers are using is the use of prostitutes . . .er i mean PR people – how could i have gotten that wrong?! Author of Climate Cover-up, a dude by the name of  Jim Hoggen is also a PR consultant. But Jim’s happy to spill the beans and tell it like it really is. He is on the record as saying it is “infuriating . . .to watch my colleagues use their skills, their training and their considerable intellect to poison the international debate on climate change.” He said “”few PR offences have been so obvious, so successful and so despicable as this attack on the science of climate change. It has been a triumph of disinformation – one of the boldest and most extensive PR campaigns in history, primarily financed by the energy industry and executed by some of the best PR talent in the world.”

One is tempted to say something like . . .same shit different day, except this is worse shit and and the different day is the future of your children and your children’s children’s children. Shame on those climate change deniers who are just doing it for the money. We must all be appalled at this blatant toadyism to the rich and powerful at the expense of our common future. One can only hope that Tony Abbott and Barbnaby Joyce will see a shift in public attitude back towards climate change reality by the next election. Putting climate change deniers into political power is among other things an invitation for the perfect bush-fire storm to visit Australia. I mean really . . .  what’s it going to take for these meat-heads to wake up? Does anyone actually want more of the catastrophic fires of last year like they had in Victoria?  Because let’s face it folks, man proposes and nature disposes.  

Come on all you Aussies, Brits and Yanks . . .it’s time to shake off this Ostrich-like apathy and get real. Here’s what you can do when you pull your head out of the sand. Go to your window, stick your head out and yell at the top of your lungs I’M AS MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!
