This is an older video but I think it may provide some useful info to some as a source of cleaning up toxins in the area around homes.
Soil Chemists Plant Ferns to Soak Up Backyard Poisons
Planting ferns can be a cheaper, greener way to soak up poisons such as arsenic from the soil. Ferns absorb arsenic through their roots and store it in their leaves, which can then be cut off. Arsenic -- once used to treat wood -- can still lurk in old roofs, decks, and playgrounds.

I sat down to write a very inspirational blog post today, but then I prayed. I realized today is a day like few others. It was a day that innocence and souls were lost. We remember Pray & Dedicate ourselves to the memories of those that died, survived & Were left alone on 9/11. When it comes to 9/11 we have a duty to remember, lift up those who sacrificed, Never forget & Never let it happen again. That is what A key date in your memory is supposed to do. Spur you onto action. Keep you on your toes. Ever Vigilant.
The first court award in a vaccine-autism claim is a big one. CBS News has learned the family of Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million dollars for her life care; lost earnings; and pain and suffering.
Hannah was described as normal, happy and precocious in her first 18 months.
Then, in July 2000, she was vaccinated against nine diseases in one doctor's visit: measles, mumps, rubella, polio, varicella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenzae.

Warning! The following contains so many factual errors on so many levels the reader may have to notify their local poison control center of poisoning by propaganda.
A poison control center dismissing the dangers of thimerosal? It all makes sense when most of their funding comes from HRSA, which also funds the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
The Bottom Line:
Vaccines Don't Cause Autism
When diagnosis of ASD first arrives, there is incredible confusion as to what it means. You question what you need to do to change it. You struggle with the realities of what it means to live with it for the rest of your life. You seek all kinds of interventions and even possible cures. As I will call myself a "senior parent", I can advise one thing... use humor though the journey you are about to live. Figure out the ways to reduce the stress of your family. Figure out ways to relieve your stress.
Today we had our first appointment with the new Occupational Therapist which we have been waiting for for at least six months. I was really pleased to see her. She is a very nice lady, and she worked really well with Daniel, and she was very much into partnership working with myself, asking what I feel needs work on most and listening to my concerns and she acknowledge that I am Daniel's mum and I know him best. Which is a first as many professionals seem to think they know best, and dictate how I should be a parent. So this refreshing approach was most welcome.
I have picked up on something sort of garden related that is helping me to teach my son to be independent.
Prepare for kinda weird and gross but this is helping me do something I have tried to do for years.
When my son is in the shower he won't do a good job of washing himself. He'd rather get to the job of getting water anywhere but the tub and shower - the fun stuff. Well it has been hard to teach him to properly wash himself. He especially will not wash between his legs.
Well this has been a rough week as far as sleep is concerned!! I think some of the issues do stem from the fact that poor Daniel’s bedroom has at times been 30 degrees!! Which is ridiculous. But that is with the window wide open and a fan on. There is nothing more we can do to bring the temperature down. So I have resorted to the boys going to bed in just a thin T-shirt and a nappy these last few nights. It does seem to have done the trick. I have also reverted to using the Melatonin for Daniel. He has just been going to bed almost ‘wired’ recently.
