In October 2009 the Ganges River Dolphin was declared as India’s National Aquatic Animal,

The following ‘Audio’ extract is of a conservation group involved in trying to save the Ganges River Dolphin which they hope intern will save the Ganga and local fishing communities who rely on the river for their livelihood.

Decades Pass and Many Kashmiri Pandits from the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir Still Languish in Makeshift Camps.

by Adrian Page 2. August 2010 10:48

The following ‘Audio’ extract reveals;

‘Plight of the Kashmiri Pandits – Their Paradise Lost’

The Kashmir Valley, This fertile land with invigorating, clean crisp air generated by the snow capped Himalayan Mountains captivated Mogul Emperor Jehangir. At his first glimpse he exclaimed, ‘If there is paradise anywhere on earth it is here!’

This ‘Paradise on Earth’, Kashmir has many distinct facets one being the people – the Kashmiri ‘Pandits’

‘Pandits’ are Hindus who are considered wise, learned people, 100% literate and their field of expertise is boundless from art, literature, religion, science and more.

Hindu’s ruled Kashmir up until the 14th century and history shows that during this period their contribution particularly in the fields of archaeology, literature and philosophy have been embraced by Indian society as a whole.

But almost twenty years ago 350 000 Kashmiri Pandits, men, women and children were ‘hounded’ out of their beloved Kashmir Valley leaving behind all they owned apart from what they managed to carry.

To take up refuge in makeshift camps in Jammu

Today thousands of men, women and children still remain ‘living’ in the squalid camps.

The following ‘Audio’ is an extract revealing the lifestyle these camp dwellers have had to endure for over twenty years.

Just like the Tibetans, Kashmiri Pandits greatest fear is the loss of their language, their culture and traditions, but unlike the Tibetans the world knows little if anything of their plight.

Removing Arsenic from Groundwater by Eating It.

by Adrian Page 18. February 2010 09:09

'The Devil’s Water' Continued –

‘Consuming the Arsenic’

High levels of arsenic continue to be found contaminating the groundwater of many regions of the world and for hundreds of millions of people this is the water they have to rely on for their drinking water supply.

Arsenic is one of the world’s most deadly killers.

It may take years to manifest and lead to a slow painful death.

With so many people at risk of arsenic poisoning, arsenicosis, it is imperative to find a remedy to mitigate arsenic from the groundwater.

A lot of filtration systems have been and are being tried and tested, many of which rely on chemicals to remove the arsenic.

But one born and bred Australian has taken a different approach – ‘Consuming the Arsenic’.

---------------------------------

‘Consuming the Arsenic’ can also be linked with ‘The Devil’s Water’ audio – the ‘biggest mass poisoning of humans ever known’ due to one of the world’s most deadly killers - arsenic.

Listen to the ‘Audio’ extract here.

It is a massive story and one which ‘The Devil’s Water’ covers very much in depth.

Programme input can include;

Scientists, doctors, NGO’s, in the field locations.

---------------------------

‘The Devils’ Water’ is available in ‘Audio’ ‘Text’ and for ‘Photography’ please refer to ‘Reportage’ category.

-----------------------------

The following ‘Audio’ is an extract of an extremely interesting interview with a lecturer in Environmental Microbiology at one of the UK’s leading universities. This lady is working not only on a safe, reliable and cost affective method of mitigating the arsenic, but also an environmentally friendly one.

Affects from ingesting too much Fluoride

by Adrian Page 23. October 2009 08:58

‘Fluorosis an Agonising Death’

 

 The following audio is an outline of a subject which is available in ‘Audio’ and ‘Text’ regards fluoride and the effects too much can have on the human body. Fluoride is promoted in some countries around the world as being beneficial to human health.

But could this be a misconception.

Worldwide millions of people are suffering from fluorosis. This is a crippling, agonising disease that can occur in early childhood and continue into old age.

In the developed world in particular fluorosis could be being misdiagnosed for other ailments.

Fluorosis is a disease that occurs as a result of consuming too much ‘of a good thing’ – fluoride. This is usually from drinking groundwater that contains high levels of fluoride, but by no means is it the only way.

Fluoride can be ingested from a variety of sources and can affect most parts of the human body including bones as well as the soft tissues.

Listen to the Audio:

Fluorosis An Agonising Death.mp3 (6.76 mb)

This audio extract is part of an interview with an eminent professor who has been studying the affects fluoride has on the human body for many years.

Decline in Vultures leads to increase in Rabies.

by Adrian Page 14. October 2009 08:57

‘From Vultures to Street Dogs’

The ‘most rapid decline of any species on the planet’ has given rise to cause for concern for human health and welfare in India. A country with a population of over one billion people.

Fifteen years ago tens of millions of vultures could be seen riding the thermals across the skies of the Indian Sub-continent.

Their vast numbers coincided with an abundance of food available, particularly livestock. It would take raptors just minutes to strip a carcass clean to the bones.

Today these same skies are almost devoid of vultures, their numbers having plummeted and today these majestic birds are now on the verge of extinction.

The vulture’s demise has been found to be due to the use of a veterinary drug used for treating livestock.

With no competition from vultures and an abundance of food street dog numbers have increased dramatically just as have the number of cases of rabies.

This neglected disease is said to contribute to more deaths worldwide than other infectious diseases such as Dengue Fever, Japanese Encephalitis or Polio.

It now seems that several other species could be following these vultures demise and that the continent of Africa might not be spared.

'From Vultures to Street Dogs’ is an excellent example as to how important conservation is especially in regards to human health and wellbeing.

------------------------------

The following audio is an outline of ‘From Vultures to Street Dogs’.

Programme input can include; Government and involved NGO’s. In the field locations.

Listen to the Audio:

Finally it is a walk around the Vulture Conservation and Breeding Centre with the Principle Scientist.
