Environment, Terrain, and Germ: The COVID-19 Story

One bug, one drug—such is the philosophical undercurrent to allopathic medicine. Sometimes that principle works. I suffered for three weeks with pneumonia before the right antibiotic enabled my recovery. Even if the overwhelming majority of microbes that constitute...

Can’t Opt Out? Smart Meter Shielding

Industrial waste and agrochemical runoff aren’t the only sources of contamination. Humans join in the polluting by flushing pharmaceutical drugs and common household chemicals down the drain.
