Linda Phillippi: And don’t forget rice from almost anywhere is loaded with arsenic.
Nikki Sanford: To those of you wondering where the lead comes from, it comes from the ground.
That’s where ALL lead comes from.
You don’t make lead, you mine it from the ground.
Now, lead is somewhat water soluble.
If ground water comes into contact with lead some of the lead will leach into the water.
This is particularly true in mountainous regions where water may percolate through hundreds or thousands of feet of lead filled rock.
Anything that drinks or grows in the water will absorb the lead.
It just so happens that every country listed also has rich natural lead deposits in their ground.
Ida Kwong: They detected the highest amounts of lead in rice from Taiwan and China.
Samples from the Czech Republic, Bhutan, Italy, India and Thailand had significantly high levels of lead as well.
26 years old female: extremely-high levels of mercury (probably from fish and vaccines)
77 years old female: moderatly toxic (arsenic is high from Asian consumption of rice mostly every day for 76 years)
38 years old female, has amalgams in her teeth (mercury fillings)
KEIKO SEKIMORI (my charity coordinator)
After the event last Friday evening, I transferred SGD3,806 to my children in Cambodia for their living expenses for one month. Pierre who is in charge of the NGO and to take care of the entire operation on site in Phnom Penh sent us this message to show his gratitude to everyone involved.
I’m Keiko. Nice to meet you!
I’m really impressed your constant effort at Cambodia.
I’m verrrry happy if I can support your activities. This brief was made by my sister. My sister and I, were so glad to be connected to these precious activities directly. Because we can understand what you do. I hope you and your family have good time while you are in France. Thank you!!!

Dear Miss Keiko,
it’s very good for us in Cambodia and specially for me to be connected with other people who supports our actions. As i wrote to Ines, first of all, for us, is to feel that we are in a “human chain”, linked by the same vision of humanity. You have to know that the people here are very proud to be connected with all of you, and they are happy to feel you love going to them. this words are not so “modern” but they are our reality. So, thanks again to be close to us, and thanks to your sister for her “job” about us.
Beyonce’s full H&M campaign revealed today! Miss B sizzles in swimwear for H&M’s global summer campaign. In January, reports emerged that Beyoncé would be the new face of H&M – the rumours were confirmed in March.
For the campaign, the mother-of-one was shot by photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in Nassau, the Bahamas’s capital city. The television ad, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, was shot at the same time, and features a new song by the singer, Standing on the Sun, as its soundtrack.
“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island,” says Beyoncé. “It felt more like making a video than a commercial.”
