Re: Methanol in hand-sanitizers and gas leaf blower exhaust. Please note that “The Food and Drug Administration just warned consumers yesterday not to buy several brands of methanol-based sanitizer manufactured in Mexico, which can induce nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death.”
Please also note that gas blowers blast methanol, found in gasoline, in our air, on our baby strollers, bikes and cars; on our outdoor furniture and through our open windows, on our pets, ourselves, and our kids.
Isn’t it time we stop allowing our air to be poisoned?

On a recent Saturday, the USA had 41,000 new cases of coronavirus. That is an all-time high.
America has more new coronavirus cases than India, Europe, China and Russia combined. Dumbfounded? Don’t be!
America has botched handling the coronavirus. It seems that many Americans have not fully processed the danger of the coronavirus. It is a tremendous public health failure.
Wearing a mask protects everyone and if everyone wore one, the virus infections in the USA would drop fivefold.
After Memorial Day, some businesses started to open such as bars, restaurants and the like. And people started gathering together to celebrate. Bad idea. People are gathering in groups without masks and the results are more than disturbing.
The fact is that there is still no national strategy, plan or agenda. People say they don’t want to wear a mask as they consider it an infringement on their rights and liberty. Baloney. People wear seat belts while driving their cars and don’t consider that an infringement of their liberty. But wearing a mask in the minds of many is not necessary at all. Crazy!
While driving my car to drop off mail in a letter box, I now notice many people in groups walking without masks. It is a fact that the virus spreads when people are close together and have no masks. Here is factual and strong advice: Wear a mask and stay at least six feet or more from others. The virus isn’t going away and there will be no respite until a vaccine is developed. Please, stay healthy.
