It’s the last business day of the year. I’d suggest you start getting all your tax stuff in a folder to hand over to your tax professional. (We are ready and willing to help you ☺ ).
Yesterday, we finished our discussion of fish- and how what we buy (actually who grows them) is increasing antibiotic resistance. After all, if we keep feeding fish a slew of antibiotics, it shouldn’t be surprising that more microbes learn how to fight off our pharmaceutical defenses.
So, now we’re ready. We already know that we are buying and eating the delectable offerings of Chinese shrimp and catfish. Even if they try to claim they are Malaysian or even American.( What? You haven’t read Monday’s or Tuesday’s post? )
The world’s water supply is in a precarious position. Even here in the US, we have more than a few places that now have endangered supplies. Some water supplies have been drawn down – by excessing farming, by careless residents who’ve never been taught the value of water conservation, even by poorly run industries that have polluted the supplies. (Fracking comes to mind, of course.)
This blog has been gestating for a long time. Mostly because it will end up being a series of blogs- but the connection between them took a bit of doing. So, I’ve been massaging them to make the connection clearer.
