Imus in the Morning 

June 1st, 1968 - March 29th, 2018

Deirdre's Corner

Let's Protect Our Kids and Our Planet: My life’s work, and that of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center, has been devoted to identifying and reducing toxic environmental exposures to protect and improve children’s health. And yet, a report released just last year from the World Health Organization (WHO) implicated unhealthy and polluted environments as causing a quarter of all deaths in children under five years old.  

Exclusive Interview: Deirdre Imus Is on a Mission to Save Our Kids and Remove Toxins - Alpha Rising spent time with Deirdre Imus and got an exclusive tour of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in NJ. Bottom Line: The more we remove poisonous toxins, the more we save our kids' lives.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

Deirdre's Dish Picks


Easy Memorial Day Potato Salad: Recipe and photo courtesy of Ellen Troyer and the Biosyntryx Staff - This coming long weekend will also be the official start of the summer 2018 picnic season. Our Biosyntrx staff agreed that this is their favorite 'go to'  potato salad recipe since it’s easy, safe, and the flavors compliment other picnic foods without overpowering.

The Imus Ranch Foundation

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!
