I am I plus my surroundings and if I do not preserve the latter, I do not preserve myself - Jose Ortega Gasset

Toxins, emissions, radiation, CO2, hazardous waste, the list is long and disturbing.

Studies have shown that urban dwellers suffer from more health problems than those who live in the countryside probably as a consequence of air pollution. And despite waste water treatment procedures in most developed countries, potentially harmful compounds still get into natural waters.

What's even more disturbing is even our homes may not be safe...radon exposure in our homes remains the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.

However there is good news...we are realizing just what all of this is doing to our world and there is a concerted effort in most countries towards cleaning up and "healing" our environment. But we have a long way to go. In the meantime Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rethink!
