    Aluminum deodorant has been linked to Alzheimer's disease.  Build up of aluminum can effect the neurons and cause a breakdown of neural pathways.

    refraining from using particular product or buying from a company that has poor practices is one of the best ways to make an impact on a company.  Also signing a petition or creating a petition can bring attention to a situation people do not necessarily know about work well.

    I think the biggest concern I have is the fact that effects seem to be snowballing.  I see small changes for good happening in my local area but them you see glaciers melting and the balance of nature so off balance in many areas.  I hope we are teaching the new generations ways to cope with the changes.

    Picked up a used plastic straw while walking on the beach.  I would have hoped that by now people would either stop using straws completely or restaurants would switch to cardboard straws.
