Spijkenisse First Aid Association

An accident happened in no time. Often cleaning and a plaster is enough, but sometimes it is more serious. And when do you get professional help? In addition, you notice that more and more people are dependent on themselves for a longer period of time before professional help arrives. Knowledge and skills of first aid are very important to provide the best possible help. Knowing what to do and how to do it can make the difference between life and death for a victim.

Earth's Magnetic North Pole Continues Drifting

Earth's Magnetic North Pole Continues Drifting
01-03-2021 Grenius.org

Earth's magnetic north pole, which has been wandering faster than expected in recent years, has now crossed the prime meridian.
The team of researchers that maintain the World Magnetic Model (WMM) has updated it and released it a year ahead of schedule due to the speed with which the pole is moving.
The newly updated model shows the magnetic north pole moving away from Canada and toward Siberia.

The magnetic north pole is the point on the Earth that compasses designate as true north.
It is the result of geological processes deep within the planet-molten iron flow creates a magnetic field with poles near the geographic North and South Poles.
But unlike the geographic poles, the magnetic poles can move-and the magnetic...

Planned Obsolescence: How the Products You Buy are Designed to Break

Planned Obsolescence: How the Products You Buy are Designed to Break
01-02-2021 Grenius.org

How many times have you bought an electronic device, only to find out that it has stopped functioning properly just a short time after your purchase?

You spent so much money on it, and suddenly you're sad to know that it's not working properly anymore. The result? Wasted expenses, labor, energy and resources, not to mention the toxic waste that ends up in landfills, poisoning our planet.

But why is that so? Why is most product's lifespan so short, considering the advanced, modern technological means of production?

Enter planned obsolescence.

Cyclical Consumption & Planned Obsolescence
Our economic system is based on consumption - the more we buy, the more money moves into the economy, and hence the more the...

Nanotechnology - a new hazard

Nanotechnology is the generic name given to the production or use of very small, or 'nano' particles. These are particles that are less than one hundred nanometres or about one thousandth the width of a human hair. A nanometre is one billionth of a metre.

Introduction
Nanotechnology is likely to be extremely important in the future as it allows materials to be built up atom by atom. This can lead to the development of new materials that are better suited for their purpose. There are several...

E numbers are harmfull

E numbers are harmfull
01-12-2020 Grenius.org

Most E numbers in food are bad, there is no doubt of that. This article gives a specific list of substances that are banned in certain countries, and others that are known to provoke allergic reactions in sensitive people.

E numbers ("E" stands for "Europe") are codes for substances used as food additives for use within the European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA). Commonly found on food labels, their safety assessment and approval are the responsibility of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Having a single unified list for food additives was first agreed upon in 1962 with food colouring. In 1964, the directives for preservatives were added, in 1970 antioxidants were added, in 1974 emulsifiers,...

Aluminum in cosmetics / deodorants / dermal products dangerous to health

Aluminum in cosmetics / deodorants / dermal products dangerous to health
01-11-2020 Grenius.org

The potential toxicity of aluminum in cosmetics has been a concern for several years. Often accused of promoting breast cancer or Alzheimer's disease, he was the subject of an assessment by the Afssaps regarding his job security. The Agency has just published its conclusions in an expert report published on 17 November 2011. Conclusion: the risk exists and consumer health safety is not ensured.

The issue has been studied by French health authorities since 2000. In 2003, a first report was published highlighting the lack of relevant data on dermal absorption of aluminum from cosmetic products. It was then impossible to conclude on the risks associated with the use of products containing them.

The assessment published today...
