CelloMom on Cars, a terrific blog, has been featured on Meet & Greet before (find that feature HERE). So, rather than give you a synopsis of the site, I'll share a few new things which I found on my last visit. In the sidebar I found these words "October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This post in memory of my mom." The link leads to one of the most informative posts on breast cancer that I've ever read. It includes facts ... things like how environmental factors are more important than genetic predisposition ... and things like common weed killers and pesticides, plastic additives or by-products, ingredients in spray paints and paint removers, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), used extensively in the manufacture of food packaging, medical products, appliances, cars, toys, credit cards, and rainwear are all linked to breast cancer. The post goes on to suggest ways to reduce our risk. Men, don't ignore the post thinking it's just for women ... breast cancer is not gender specific. Another recent post asks readers to think back to the hottest day they can remember ... and goes on to explore the possibility of those days happening frequently. If you've ever been confused by the scientific terminology related to climate change, then you'll love Radiative Forcing and Global Warming Potential, a post which breaks down the words and makes them understandable. As with all of CelloMom's posts, these articles open our eyes. She helps us see the situation in new ways and by doing so, prompts us to act. CelloMom on Cars continues to be one of my favorite sites. Check it out ... and I think it will become one of your favorites as well!
