Danger Of NZ Sun On Health In Time Of Global Warming

February 21st, 2015

Sunstroke From Sun Lack of Ozone and Global Warming is causing health problems. Summers are now hotter than ever, and the sun's rays more damaging. For the past three years, at some time during the period from Christmas time to late February, I have suffered serious sun-stroke, several times each season, with debilitating effects. Gone are the days of lying about near-naked in the sun, or playing tennis in our latest bikini-top, as we were want to do in the days of our youth.

Natural Insecticides Derris and Pyrethrum Not Always Safe

September 2nd, 2011

Beware as  these organic insecticides often have added chemicals.   Pyrethrum and Derris dust are advertised as being  'natural herbal' insecticides, but this is sometimes misleading. Piperonyl butoxide is one of the chemicals which is sometimes added to pyrethrum.  Piperonyl butoxide is a synergistic chemical which makes the pyrethrum compounds more active, but this is a toxic poison.
