"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Effective Microorganisms to the rescue

I read recently that no new animals have been domesticated in the past 2,000 years. That might be changing. With interest at the microscopic level, there is a lot of research happening in biotech, and here is one example of a new wave of 'domestication' of nature's lifeforms. Maybe not "animals", but lifeforms, just the same. Domestication is about learning how to live together productively, consciously. It doesn't have to mean exploitation and misuse, but a peaceful coexistence. That's my hope with this new line of domestication endeavor.

Red Cross Helps Tsunami Victims with Effective Microorganisms

The Thai Red Cross and EM Kyusei are using Effective Microorganisms for the control of odor and disease suppression at makeshift mortuaries in the aftermath of the tsunami.

Thailand (PRWEB) January 26, 2005 -- The Thai military has ordered the use of Effective Microorganisms™ to be sprayed on the corpses of the victims of the tsunami that hit the area on December 26, 2004. The Thai Red Cross has been helping EM Kyusei, the organization that manufactures, sells, and trains individuals and the Thai military on the uses of Effective Microorganisms in Thailand, use the microbial product to control odors, flies, and ultimately the spread of disease. Efforts involving the Red Cross and other organizations that are part of EM Research Organization are starting in India, Sri Lanka, and other countries that were affected by the tsunami.

Effective Microorganisms, a mixed culture of beneficial microorganisms used in various agricultural, environmental, and human health fields owned an licensed by EM Research Organization in Okinawa, Japan.
