Plate Tectonics and the Hazards They Present in the Pacific Northwest.

This is an informational lecture on plate tectonics and their hazards. The focus of this talk will be on plate tectonics of the PNW, and how understanding the world around us, can help predict and prepare us for geologically driven disasters. Often we perceive that the ground is solid and neglect the dynamic processes underfoot. Tragically, as the current events in Haiti continue to unfold, we are reminded of how dynamic the earth actually is, and how a tragic event can quickly worsen without proper resources.

Fluoridation of Drinking Water – Further Study is Needed

It has been estimated that approximately 40% to 70% of municipal drinking water in the United States is fluoridated, with a concentration in the range of 1.01 ± 0.15 mg/ml. Yet, the efficacy and safety of this medical intervention has not been as rigorously studied as medications administered to much smaller fractions of the population. This article briefly reviews the strength of evidence supporting the fluoridation of public water and questions if enough is known to justify the broad, and involuntary, treatment of millions. This commentary is directed to those interested in health outcomes related to the important practice of drinking-water treatment.

This presentation focuses on one of many health hazards found inside our homes, which affects the lives of our loves ones that sometimes are too young to fight back. According to the Environmental Protection Agency many homes built before 1978 have paint that has high levels of lead (called lead-based paint). Also; I will share with my audience other avenues of possible lead exposure.  My audience today is a group of young mothers, homeowners, daycare providers, professional women, educators and women of faith who make up the organization known as the Young Women’s Christian Council.
