DO NOT GIVE OR GET ANY VACCINATIONS FOR YOURSELF OR  YOUR KIDS………..

Ok, lets break this down nice and simple.

Formaldehyde is from the purification of the vaccine. 99.9% of which is removed. The reason it doesn’t give a dosage is the ammount is so minuscule that it can’t be measured without going into picograms. That’s one trillionth of a gram. You breathe in more formaldehyde by driving down a busy road than in a vaccine.

Thimerosal is NOT elemental mercury, It is a molecular compound made up of carbon, hydrogen, mercury, sodium, oxygen, and sulfur. This is used as a preservative for the vaccine. Thimerosal is used in a variety of other things, like tattoo ink, facial creams, nasal sprays. It’s toxic to humans only in fairly large quantities but highly toxic to aquatic born organisms like infectious bacteria. In short, it makes sure you don’t get salmonella from a stray bacteria from the chicken embryos.

As for the dosage of the Thimerosal. That is the most laughable point in this post. It says 25 mcg, that’s micrograms, or one millionth of a gram. To put this in perspective, a dollar bill weighs roughly 1 gram, the average human eyelash is around 80-90 micrograms. The box also says that it contains a 5ml (milliliter/cc) vial which leads me to my next point.

A little simple math and we find out that 25 mcg = 0.00003 ml and a little more math we find that 0.00003 ml is 0.00006% of 5 ml. Let me put this another way. By the age of 5, an American child weighs about 50-55lbs and their body contains 55 mcg of Uranium. I don’t see any kids running around with radiation sickness, so I think they’re safe with a preservative in them.

TL;DR: This is like saying you don’t want your child eating their baked birthday cake because raw eggs were used to make it and you don’t want your child getting salmonella from it.

I never reblog but I feel that this is an important lesson for those who spread fear while ignoring the science.

Le fleuve St-Laurent et Trois-Rivières par une belle journée d’hiver.

The St-Lawrence river and Trois-Rivières on a beautiful winter day.

(I realize the colours are a bit harsh, I over-compensated a bit for the low-contrast of the RAW image)

Quoi de mieux en une belle soirée d’hiver que de s’occuper du foyer?  Rien…  Sauf possiblement de prendre quelques photos avant d’ajouter du bois aux flammes!

What’s better on a nice winter’s evening than to tend the fireplace?  Nothing…  Except possibly taking a few pictures before feeding the fire some much-needed wood!

Rien de bien compliqué ce matin, des fleurs sur la rive du Fleuve St-Laurent par une belle journée d’automne.

Nothing too complicated this morning, some flowers on the bank of the St. Lawrence River on a beautiful fall day.

Une dernière photo de Boston, j’aime particulièrement celle-ci dû aux lignes de l’édifice en haut qui semblent s’étirer vers le ciel.

One last Boston shot, I especially like this one for the lines of the building on top as they seem to stretch out into the sky.

Une troisième et dernière, à égalité comme préférée avec celle des rayons de soleil qui percent à travers la forêt.

A third and final shot from the hike, sharing first place as my favourite along with the one the sun shining into the forest.

Une autre de la randonnée à St-Mathieu-du-Parc.

Another one from my hike in St-Mathieu-du-Parc.

Dans les bois pour une randonnée avec des collègues de travail en octobre 2013.

Désolé pour les barres noires sur les côtés, sans ça l’image prend beaucoup trop de place puisqu’elle est en orientation portrait.

In the woods for a hike with work colleagues in October 2013.

Sorry for the black borders on each side, without them the image takes too much space on my feed because it was taken in portrait orientation.

Woohoo!

Je n’ai pas l’habitude de participer à des concours de photographie mais cette année j’ai participé au concours de photographie des Forces Canadiennes.  Et j’ai remporté la 3e place dans la catégorie “Vie de famille”, Novice!  C’est une petite victoire mais un bon début!

I don’t make it a habit of participating in photo contests but this year I participated in the Canadian Forces photography contest.  And I won third place in the “Family life”, Novice, category!  It’s a small victory but a good start!

Tu sais que tu fais quelque chose de bien quand le grand Normand l’Amour te fais de tels compliments!

I love you Norm!

Le travail demande beaucoup de mon temps et énergie ces temps-ci alors je fais très peu de photo mais vendredi dernier alors j’ai amené mon appareil-photo au boulot.  Et quelle coincidence, il y avait un bouchon de circulation sur le pont alors j’ai eu un peu de temps pour prendre des photos et des angles de vue différents.

Work is taking up a lot of my time and energy these days so I’m doing very little photography but I brought my camera to work last Friday.  And what a coincidence, there was a traffic jam on the bridge so I had a bit of time to take pictures and try out some different viewpoints.

Site du massacre de Boston, j’adore l’architecture de Boston et cet endroit est parmi les plusieurs que j’apprécie et que je trouve mémorable.  La “Old State House” est du coté gauche..


Site of the Boston massacre, I love Boston’s architecture and this place is one of the many that I enjoy and find memorable.  The Old State house is on the left.

Le centre-ville de Boston vu à partir du “North End”, près de la maison de Paul Revere. 

Particulièrement d’intérêt pour moi est la Custom House Tower (la tour à gauche), je la trouve très plaisante esthétiquement.

Downtown Boston seen from the North End, near the Paul Revere house.

Of particular interest to me is the Custom House Tower (the clock tower to the left), I find it very pleasing aesthetically .
