WHO rejects claims to issue a statement on existence of Ebola in Tanzania.
Many of us understand the importance of consuming organic foods and making detoxification a regular part of our health routine. Creating a healthy home environment is also part of the detoxification/clean living process. After learning about the health hazards of dryer sheets and toxic cleaning products you may have already eliminated these products from your home! But, what about your bedroom? This is very important, because we spend one-third of our lives sleeping. Often times this is the room that is neglected. Ladies and gentlemen, today is your lucky day, because in this article we’re going to show you how to make your bedroom cancer-free!
The experts also say that creating a clean (non-toxic) bedroom can be a financial challenge, so starting small is the easiest solution. And, now you probably ask yourself – why? Well, that’s easy to answer – because every change you can make will have a positive impact on your health. How you begin is a personal decision based on your budget and health issues. Some people begin with replacing their mattress, others an air cleaner or bedding.
1 Replace your pillows and pillow cases with organic materials
Generally, people think that pillows and pillow cases are safer than synthetics, but 25% of the world’s insecticides as well as 14% of its pesticides end up on cotton and contaminate it. If you can, replace your pillows and pillow cases with safer organic alternatives.
2 Replace or remove all artificial fabrics from your bedding, bedroom, and closet
Synthetics are made from thermoplastics, compounds which release plastic molecules at high temperatures. Try to replace your wrinkle-free clothes with organic materials as they release harmful compounds known as formaldehydes that can damage your health.
3 Replace or remove artificial clothes in your closet
Most synthetics are gas, coal or liquid based. The gas is spread through a nozzle (spinneret) which is cooled immediately after it emerges and forms tiny threads that are woven to create fabric. To increase durability, Teflon is added on top. Synthetic clothes are very dangerous over time, so try replacing them with organic materials.
4 Remove faux furniture
If you have faux leather furniture in your bedroom, you should replace it with organic materials as fake leather contains PVC (polyvinyl chloride), the most dangerous fabric. PVC is made more flexible with the use of phthalates that can disrupt your endocrine system, and pillows and cushions are sprayed with toxic chemicals that can result in serious health problems.
5 Remove particle boards and MDF
Furniture that contains MDF is very dangerous. The material is made from softened and powdered shredded wood combined with resin and bonding agents compacted into solid boards. MDF also contains formaldehyde that can harm your respiratory system.
Particle boards are also full of formaldehyde which has been linked to different types of cancer. How Stuff Works says that they reduce their toxicity by 25% in 2 months and 50% in a year, and from there, they release toxic materials for the next 10 years! Instead of MDF furniture or particle boards, try finding solid wood, glass or metal tables and desks.
Remove your rugs
Rugs look great in the bedroom, but they trap dust, dust mites and allergens which can be the source of many problems. The rugs are usually made from polyester and antimony which can be fatal. Rugs have also been found to contain olefin and nylon.
Always have indoor and outdoor shoes in your home to avoid letting contaminants inside. Buy a shoe tray and put it by your door to easily change your shoes.
8. Minimize the number of electrical devices
Electrical devices can disrupt your sleeping patterns, so make sure to avoid putting them in your bedroom.
9.Replace or cover your mattress
Replacing your mattress can be expensive. Mattresses are usually sprayed with flame retardants and chemicals that can harm your health. If you can’t replace it, make sure to cover it with a foil barri
Buy an air cleaner
Air cleaners are expensive, but you can get a portable one that you can move from room to room. Make sure it has HEPA filtration and that it doesn’t contain ozone.
Remove chemically treated drapes and shades
Drapes and shades can trap dust and pollen, so you should replace them with organic materials. If they’re too costly, try finding someone who can sew curtains for you. You can also buy wood blinds – if you’re remodeling, buy the ones that can sit between the window glass, so you can avoid cleaning them frequently.
Please Read–Warning Signs of a Stroke
Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
IDENTIFYING A STROKE
Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist said that if everyone who gets this message shared it with 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
I have done my part. Will you?

Tanzania: officials summons WHO over Ebola claims
Tanzania’s government has summoned the World Health Organisation’s local representative over claims that they’re concealing information on Ebola virus infections in the country.
On Saturday, WHO said in a statement that it had learned of one suspected fatal case in the main city, Dar es Salaam, and two other infections but, despite repeated requests, was given no information.
Last week, Tanzania said it had no confirmed or suspected cases of Ebola.
Government spokesman Hassan Abbasi said on Twitter that the ministry of foreign affairs had summoned the WHO’s Tigest Ketsela Mengestu to obtain “in-depth details from the agency on reports circulating in the media”.
A short video clip has also been posted on the ministry’s Twitter account, showing Dr Tigest clarifying at a meeting with Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Damas Ndumbaro that the WHO did not say there was Ebola in Tanzania:
