Phthalates in premmies IV tubing

I wanted to share an article with you further to my Phthalate article,
which highlights the problems associated with phthalates in IV tubing in hospitals, and more specifically in premmies IV tubes. If you have watched the documentary "The disappearing Male" you will have noticed it mentioned in there also. I've written to the Australian Medical Association for their opinion on this, as some hospitals in Canada and the US are already banning phthalate containing IV tubing in hospitals, and for a list of hospitals who do not use phthalates in their IV tubes. If anyone else is interested in writing and asking them also, let me know.

Thanks Rachael

The Age of Stupid - A documentary on climate change

The Age of Stupid is a 90 minute documentary on climate change directed by British filmmaker Franny Armstrong. It starts with the state of our devastated world in 2055 when a world archivist goes back to the world video archives with the question: "Why did humanity not do anything about climate change when there was still time to avert disaster?"

Also have a look at where Australia stands on the UN climate summit due to take place in Copenhagen in December 2009, is this really where most Australians stand? We're at the back of the race with Nigeria and not far behind the United States, I'd rather see us up there with the Maldives, but then we know why the Maldives are up there don't we? If the sea level rises beyond predicted estimates the Maldives won't exist.

Join the cause and have a look at the documentary.
