Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week


  How To Prevent Autism by Dara Berger - The statistics are alarming and become more so every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 68 children have been identified with an autism spectrum disorder, making it one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the United States. 

Take Action to BAN Chlorpyrifos: The Senate has just introduced a bill (S.1624) that would BAN chlorpyrifos, a toxic pesticide that harms kids’ brains. This pesticide has been linked to serious health effects in young children when their mothers were exposed during pregnancy, including nervous system damage, autism, ADHD and lower IQs.  Take Action Now!

Weeding Out Vaccine Toxins: MMR, Glyphosate, and the Health of a Generation - Glyphosate, often sold under the brand name “Roundup,” is the most widely used weed killer in the U.S. Glyphosate is a “non-selective herbicide,” which means it kills many plants, not just weeds. It kills them by interfering with the production of critical proteins necessary for growth. 

Back to School, Away from Toxins - by Deirdre Imus, August 10, 2017 - For countless American kids, back to school time means shopping for new backpacks, supplies, and outfits. For millions of families, especially those whose children have asthma and other health or learning issues, it also means ensuring that their child’s school won’t make them sicker, or interfere with their learning.

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

    You Too Can Be Jesse Jackson: The Oil Spill Disaster

    People love the ocean
    So every Summer they get a notion,
    pack their cars with devotion,
    oops almost forgot the sun tan lotion,
    load the kids with lots of commotion,
    check the internet for promotions,
    and drive for hours, bumper to bumper, in slow-motion
    That’ll really try your emotions

    You arrive at the coast
    your vacation is toast
    because of some oil line breach.
    Damn, ain’t that a beach.

    Goldman’s Lloyd Blankfein
    can relax his mind,
    because come dinner time,
    BP’s CEO will be the world’s most maligned,
    threat to mankind.

    Tony Hayward, BP’s big bitch
    could’ve prevented an eco-disaster with a simple kill switch.
    That’s really sleazy
    Turning New Orleans, The Big Easy
    into the Big Greasy.

    Fuzzy Wuzzy wuz a bear.
    He like to fish in the Delta from his folding chair.
    He grabbed his trusty old pole,
    and headed to his favorite hole,
    but what he saw hurt his soul.
    A tear in his eye, oil up to his wader pants thigh,
    Fuzzy screamed die BP, Die!
    Fuzzy went insane.
    He grabbed his rifle, and bullets; over 600 grains.
    And Fuzzy began to train.
    With 50 caliber thunder, Fuzzy was about to bring the rain.
    While thinking of his wildlife friends,
    wearing cammo so he could blend,
    Fuzzy checked the wind and adjusted his scope.
    For those responsible, time to abandon hope.
    If you see flash from the bushes
    it’s time to make your last wishes.
    Because when you get oil on a Fuzzy Bear’s tail
    you’ll have a Hell Hound on your trail. 

    The environment thanks you!
