US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issues indoor air quality policy for all CDC offices nationwide

"This is arguably the strongest and most important chemical-free and fragrance-free policy in existence for the workplace."

"The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a federal agency under the Department of Health and Human Services, recently issued a policy on indoor air quality that will affect all CDC offices (owned, leased and rented) and more than 15,000 employees nationwide. Among a host of indoor air quality standards, the policy includes specific guidelines restricting the use of fragrance in cleaning and personal care products." What took them so long?

"Workers, those person who work in CDC facilities regardless of their employer, including employees, contract workers, guest workers, and others."

This is Huge!!!

Stink up the air with your poisoned detergent!

There is nothing worse than wanting to take a walk outside and the air is stinking of detergent! What the hell is wrong with people that they have to stink up the air with these chemical fragrances? My god is the air not fragrant enough for them? Keep your stinking detergents laden with poisonous fragrances to your damned self! I don't want to breath, smell it, it's poison and you are poisoning me and the environment, it's disgusting and you should just keep the odor confined to your space! This may seem harsh,but so is breathing these toxins something to think about don't you think?

Get Your Car Washed Today!

"At the car wash get your car washed today, those cars never seems to stop comin Keep those rags and machines hummin."  Those are some of the words from a 1970's song by Rose Royce "Car Wash. Yes those cars never seem to stop coming, and the machines referred to in the song, are the brushes and detergent dispensers. Federal laws both in the U.S. and Canada require car wash facilities to treat their waste water before it goes out into bodies of water. So what's the problem then? The problem is that there is no law that requires them to use eco-friend soaps and detergents, and of course they gotta have that new car smell, and guess what that new car smell is magically created with.. magical fragrance that is sold in large quantities. The problem is that just like the witchs brew many people wearing different fragrances from cologne, perfume and personal care products create, (see my earlier fragrance vent) it not only stinks up the place, but multiply this by the thousands upon thousands of car wash facilities in the world and you see what a nightmare they pose. Recently I rented a storage space next to a carwash and I couldn't stand being there because of the chemicals in the suds and fragrance, it was a real nightmare, ask anyone with sensitivities what that's like and they will tell you that it's horrible.  The next time you have the desire to take your car to be washed either take it to a place that uses biodegradable suds and no fragrance I.E. new car smell or just wash it yourself with some biodegradable soap and water!

Your fragrance is intoxicating!

Ahh the stench of chemical fragrances, if there is anything next to smoking that people can't seem to keep to themselves, is their damned fragrance products, I am sick and tired, sick being the operative word, of having to breathe others crap fragrances in public places. Most people don't realize that these fragranced products, either cologne or perfume , personal care products for that matter are filled with toxic chemicals. The same applies to household products like laundry detergent and cleansers The fact is that the U.S. E.P.A. did a study on the toxicity of indoor air pollution and it's actually worse than most outdoor air pollution!
The reason is that most fragrances contain thousands of chemicals and when there are enough people applying and wearing various fragranced products it's a veritable witch's brew! Most people only give a damn about how they smell, not how it affects others around them, people like myself care about both, and that's why I only wear essential oils that make me and everyone around them feel good!
Next time you put on that cologne, perfume or body spray think about that! Most people are one breath away from being a canary. If it's toxic and makes people sick then keep it to yourself!

The Senseless Census

This is something I just can't keep to myself, I just caught the ad on the Super bowl for the 2010 census. I don' know if the government gets a break for the cost of the commercial, but a 30 second spot on the Super Bowl goes for 3-4 million. I have to say it, we hear about how poor the economy is and how in debt the country is, so why the hell are we spending millions to find out how many more damn people we have in this country, it's overpopulated and unless the findings are going to do something about that, then why waste the money we don't have? Some argue so that services can be provided for those in need, well they don't count the homeless  because they just don't know where they all live! It's just another excuse to spend the Americans money. So much for change in government! Insanity is defined as doing the same thing and expecting different results.

Bad Idea With Good Intentions

You see them everywhere you go, lit unfinished cigarettes discarded by addicted smokers who could care less if they litter or expose non-smokers to the poisons contained in the smoke. Several companies in their infinite wisdom have come up with a solution to that problem and have created a huge ashtray if you will, to solve the growing problem.
Some are called something like Smoking Oasis, if you live in the South you have seen them in front of stores and even libraries! If you haven't it's this contraption that smokers put their supposed extinguished cigarette in, the problem is that like with any ashtray unless you extinguish the cigarette before placing it in the ashtray, the cigarette continues to burn. So if you take a place that is frequented by smokers you can have like let's say 20-30 lit cigs deposited in the container, and the worst part is, the average one takes at least 3 minutes to burn itself out, especially since these containers allow oxygen in and as any grade school child can tell you oxygen is necessary for fire, remove the oxygen and the cig burns out. So the end result  is non-smokers have to breath the smoke coming out of the container, I have seen smoke coming out of these things and I said to myself, that's from one cigarette? No way is that one cigarette, consider this, if a hundred lit butts are deposited in the container in an hour and the average butt takes 3 minutes to extinguish simple math tells you that 100x3=300 mins.= 5 hours and that means that it will take at least 5 hours for the perpetual smoke to clear, there is no way this is a benefit, I say keep it yourself, this is a bad invention, a bad idea and in the long run it ads to the second hand smoke we all are already breathing. Oasis, yeah for smokers for the rest of us with Asthma COPD or other lung related diseases, a virtual nightmare!
