What if your skin were to turn blue permanently? In this episode of RoyOnRescue, I talk about the possible irreversible side effects of drinking colloidal silver. There’s dangers and side effects that you should be aware of before you decide that silver is the cure.
A rescue fan wrote in and asked, “Why is smog worse in the summer in Los Angeles?”
I did a little research and found the following. I hope it helps.
SMOG, nicknamed in the 19th century for the “smoke” and “Fog” found in London due to coal burning fireplaces and furnaces and low hanging fog can be a real problem with increased pollution. One of the reasons smog is so dangerous is due to the fact that many times higher than the safe level of pollution particles hangs in the air like a nebulizer mist. when inhaled, this polution can get into our blood stream and effect our whole body and vital organs. There has been a lot of concern about this especially in China. Over 8000 deaths have been attributed to SMOG in China and I’m sure that long term affects are even worse.
In an article by the “The Daily Green”, it stated that, “ozone needs heat and sunlight to form from its precursor chemicals. That’s why you hear warnings about air pollution most often on hot sunny summer days. But be aware: Ozone persists for hours after forming, so unhealthy conditions often last well into the evening, after the sun has gone down. Also be aware that ozone isn’t the only pollutant out there. Another major cause for concern are fine particulates — dust and soot, but also tiny chemical droplets. Particulates can cause air pollution problems year round, especially since furnaces and wood-burning stoves can produce unhealthy levels in the winter.”(http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/latest/ozone-air-pollution-smog-0706)
China too has hit an all time high in air pollution and a complication with Smog.(http://www.cnbc.com/id/100456949) It is said that High levels of air pollution in China’s cities leads to 350,000-400,000 premature deaths.(http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6265098.stm)
So what can be done if you find yourself “socked in” by a cloud of toxic particulate? Well, depending on the chemicals in the air, we could walk around with particulate filtering masks designed with the appropriate micron filter. But this is not sustainable. It is helpful however, if you find yourself in such a situation. It would be wise to view it like any hazardous environment and try to escape as soon as possible. One should be aware that some of these chemicals can enter our bodies via eyes, nose, mouth, food, water and in some cases the skin or breaks in the skin. So, the next time you go outside and can take a deep breath of fresh air and view the nice minty green lichen growing on the north side of your trees, be sure to thank God that you don’t have to deal with terrible conditions of these very polluted locations. Oh, but remember, air moves everywhere and it eventually affects us all. So, don’t forget to call your government reps and let them know you’re thinking about them and the anti pollution policies their voting on. Here, and everywhere else too!
In this episode Roy takes a look at the dangers of thunderstorms and lightning). And where there’s thunder, there’s lightning. There was a report of a lightning striking a tree next to a home in Park Township destroyed electrical equipment and appliances in the home and caused minor injuries to a child who suffered mouth burns from her braces. Twenty-four head of cattle were struck and killed by lightning while standing under a tree. Lightning in West plains also caused power outages and one minor fire to a roof. A person talking on a cordless telephone in the living room of her house was slightly injured by a lightning strike. A 29-year old man and a 14-year old child were struck by lightning at a rodeo in Lawrence Township and hospitalized. Two horses were also struck and killed by lightning. A 34-year old little league coach was killed by a lightning strike while on the field. If you’ve ever wondered what the potential danger is regarding lightning strikes you wont want to miss this episode of RoyOnRescue and become more familiar with the dangers of lightning and how to protect yourself and survive.
In this episode of RoyOnRescue, Roy talks about the possible dangers of Carbon Monoxide gas in the home and garage and how it can occur, how to recognize it and how to prevent it. With the cold weather on it’s way, you won’t want to miss this good reminder about a possible silent killer that can be prevented.
CDC reminds us of some of the basic ways to prevent this from happening.
How can I prevent CO poisoning from my home appliances?
Have your heating system, water heater and any other gas, oil, or coal burning appliances serviced by a qualified technician every year.
Do not use portable flameless chemical heaters (catalytic) indoors. Although these heaters don’t have a flame, they burn gas and can cause CO to build up inside your home, cabin, or camper.
If you smell an odor from your gas refrigerator’s cooling unit have an expert service it. An odor from the cooling unit of your gas refrigerator can mean you have a defect in the cooling unit. It could also be giving off CO.
When purchasing gas equipment, buy only equipment carrying the seal of a national testing agency, such as the American Gas Association or Underwriters’ Laboratories.
Install a battery-operated CO detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall.http://www.cdc.gov/co/faqs.htm
