Scientists Identify 28,000 Medicinal Plants That Treat Ailments from Cancer to Diabetes
 
In recent years, the term “plant medicine” has come to be associated with psychedelics like mushrooms and ayahuasca, which are increasingly documented to provide mental and emotional relief to users. But according to a recent analysis from Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom, there are over 28,000 other plants currently being used as medicine throughout the world.
 
“In many regions of the world, people still rely on traditional plant-based medicines for their primary healthcare. This is especially true for many rural communities in Africa, parts of Asia, and Central and South America, where plants and knowledge of their traditional use are accessible and affordable. In other countries, many of these traditional plant-based medicines are being integrated through regulations into mainstream health systems.”

For anyone who is concerned about the squirrel, he still raids our other two feeders and the vegetable garden. The tiny amount of Vaseline used is non-toxic, the kind used for lip balm. He quickly learned that this feeder was not worth the trouble, so we have not put more on the pole, and the birds are delighted to actually get some of the bird seed.

Town Mortified As Govt Cuts Down, Destroys Community Fruit Forest Over Permit Issue
 
Across the globe, an awakening is happening in which people are realizing the power of growing your own food. Detroit, Michigan is a prime example. People have turned many areas, essentially brought to ruins through government neglect, into a food oasis. Edible landscapes are increasing throughout the world; however, when government gets involved, this self-sustainability through community gardening can often be thwarted.
 
The residents of Sunshine Coast, whose city council just unapologetically laid waste to a 7-year-old organically grown fruit tree forest spanning 11 streets, are finding this out the hard way.
 
A single complaint about a permit sent the city council into a fruit-hating tyrannical whirlspin — eventually leading to the destruction of the entire project.
 
Because the city claims ownership over the property in front of people’s homes where a sidewalk would go, they were required to get permits to have fruit trees in that space — most everyone did. However, because one resident didn’t apply for a permit, the entire area was leveled.

Homemade Lemon & vinegar cleaner
 
We've been using this solution for awhile now. Its worked great for us! Use it on counter tops and our floors. We dont get any streaks and it cleans well. We still do a deep clean with store brands but its a once in awhile kind of thing now. Vinegar lemon juice safe cleaner with baking soda boost
