1916. It was the one thing Bridget was supposed to never let happen. But no matter how many times she replayed the steps in her head, she couldn’t reanimate the small pale boy who lay limp in her arms. 1976. Billie felt as if she’d been wrenched in half more surely than when the baby had been cut from her body. But she felt something else too: happy to think only of her own needs, her own tears. So light she could float away, somewhere no one would ever find her. The present. Even if Cait never found her birth mother, even if she decided not to have this baby, to leave her lover and kiss her parents good-bye, she was surrounded by so much emotion, so many questions, that she felt as if she might never be free again.

“Invisible Killers. The title alone sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Maybe a murder mystery, or perhaps a book of international intrigue with villains and assassins who have hidden their real identities as they do their dirty work. Or, you might be expecting a science fiction extravaganza, complete with invisible creatures who swoop down on their victims and wreak havoc on the unsuspecting. Well, in a very real sense, this book is all of this and more, except for one thing. What we present in this book is not fiction.”So begins the exposé that educates readers about the very real dangers that surround us every day in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the foods we eat. These environmental toxins can build up in our bodies, causing disease and even death. Rik Deitsch and Dr. Stewart Lonky identify the problems and offer solutions that will help you reduce your toxic burden and live a healthier, longer life. www.invisiblekillers.com
I will be talking to Gregg Stebben editor of Men’s Health Magazine about their story in the latest issue. IF you’re a guy... And IF you ever go to a supermarket... ...then there’s a good chance there are three “guy” foods you pick up every time you are there: Tuna Chicken Breakfast cereal But are you sure you are making wise choices? In the latest issue of MEN’S HEALTH... ... GUY-FOOD TIP #1: HOW TO BUY THE BEST TUNA We live in a world of diversity... ...and nowhere is that more true than in the tuna aisle. In fact, if you read all the labels you will find: Chunk Solid Light White Albacore Pouch Can So which should you buy? Here’s what you should look for: ALBACORE or WHITE TUNA, because it delivers more than three times the omega-3s of SKIPJACK, or LIGHT TUNA. But because ALBACORE TUNA are typically larger, they also have HIGHER MERCURY LEVELS... ...so balance risk and reward, and eat only one 6-ounce serving of ALBACORE a week. If you’ve just got to have more tuna than that...then feel free to chow down of 12ounces of SKIPJACK or LIGHT TUNA every a week. Bonus tip: To limit your exposure to BPA, a harmful chemical in the linings of cans: Check the can label for the words "BPA-free," or opt for plastic pouches.
Jon Devine, Water Director of the NRDC will be here to talk about clean water. The drinking water for 117 million Americans is at risk. We count on clean water when we go to the faucet for a drink, turn on the shower, wash our clothes or wade into a lake to swim. The water piped in the homes of many Americans originates in small streams, ponds, lakes and wetlands. This natural system recharges ground water supplies and removes contaminants before water is filtered and disinfected by a treatment facility. However, shortsighted legal decisions have left millions of acres of wetlands and more than half of the nation’s streams vulnerable to pollution and development. More than half of our streams are at risk of pollution, threatening rivers, lakes and drinking water. And it’s not just having clean water, it’s having water at all. If these waterways are not protected, they can be destroyed (buried by land moving activity such as road building) or dammed up without environmental review under the Clean Water Act. The EPA will hand down a decision in the beginning of May as to whether or not they will issue new guidance policies for the protection of these types of water bodies.
