Pain pills nationally over 9 years.
The chemicals are part of a group of compounds, which stem from artificial products like fast food wrappers, non-stick cooking ware, and fire fighting foam. Wisconsin’s Natural Resources Board (NRB) also moved to establish a new rule-making process for PFAS water levels in October 2019.
Kick back. Often. Why? Our posture can change our attitude and approach. Really. Not kidding.

Lets cut to the core and call out those nit-wits who claim that immunizations cause autism for what they are. Simply put, they are no smarter than the flat-earth crowd. But those who thought there was a threat of dropping off the edge of the world could do no harm, whereas those who refuse to fulfill their responsibility to have their child immunized poses a real threat to the rest of our families.
What I want to talk about is the fanciful idea floating from the poorly written headline — that there could be a vaccination that would give you immunity not from a medical disease but from your mother’s wishes — as if the dreams from your mother are analogous to disease and infect you and degrade and destroy you
I’ve made the point earlier, as have activists and local residents, repeatedly, but these brief paragraphs towards the end of a news story summarizing the damage and deaths from last week’s heavy rains in Northwest Wisconsin….underscore the madness of proposing to Scott Walker’s “chamber-of-commerce-mentality” Department of Natural Resources the approval for a 26,000-hog feeding and manure storage operation within smelling and polluting distance of Lake Superior, Chequamegon Bay and numerous wells providing drinking water and economic life to the entire Northwoods region…
The Golden Sands Dairy is widely opposed and imperils a wold class golf resort in northern Adams county, property home valuations, and surface waters and acquirers in a four-county region looking for recreational and tourism investments.
Citizens have been opposing the proposed CAFO since plans were first announced in 2012.
In 2014, the village of Sussex in southeast Wisconsin made a dismaying discovery. The radioactive element radium, a contaminant that occurs naturally in bedrock throughout the region, had seeped into two of its seven water wells.
It was not exactly a surprise. Radium has long been a problem in drinking water for dozens of Wisconsin communities from Green Bay to the Illinois border….

Experts, and even some regulators, say existing laws are failing to protect Wisconsin and the nation from harmful exposure to lead in drinking water that leaches from aging plumbing — a danger illustrated by the public health crisis in Flint, Michigan.
At least 176,000 so-called lead service lines connect older Wisconsin homes to the iron water mains that deliver municipal water, according to an estimate by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Milwaukee alone, where 60 percent of the state’s known lead-poisoned children live, has 70,000 lead service lines.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder (R-Michigan) is getting huge amount of lurid publicity for ignoring (indeed causing) the water crises in Flint, Michigan in which toxic lead was effectively vectored into the children and families of Flint, (Lederman, In These Times).
Republican Gov. Scott Walker has ignored (indeed caused) the water problem in Kewaunee, Juneau, Adams, Wood counties, inflicting the same polluter-friendly, anti-family health agenda he has pursued since he was elected….
Hat tip for the perseverance – – and for the more than 20 links to articles and reports – – in a new posting on the MAL Contends blog about the drinking water contamination in Flint, MI and polluted, abused water supplies in Wisconsin.
Teri Huyck, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, said in the statement the health and safety of its patients is Planned Parenthood’s top priority, and it will continue to assess security measures.
“Planned Parenthood has strong security measures in place to ensure that our health centers are safe, supportive, welcoming environments for all people accessing the high-quality health care they need,” Huyck said….
Pro-Life Wisconsin condemned the Colorado shooting in a blog post Monday.
In the post, state director Dan Miller said Pro-Life Wisconsin is categorically opposed to murder, and dignity of human life should be upheld at all stages of life — but that does not change the organization’s stance on abortion.
“Abortion destroys peace and creates a culture of violence and disrespect for human life,” Miller said.
