THE TRUTH ABOUT POLLUTION

pollution-spix-lg

The quantity of the pollution and the type of pollution should be considered when logically discussing pollution.

Some chemicals are only pollutants because there is too much of them around and they become threats to your health. An example is carbon dioxide which is a very reactive chemical. It does not pollute the environment because it quickly unites chemically with other substances and becomes inert or harmless. However, if you get too much of it or too great a QUANTITY into your lungs then you suffocate to death.

Government permitted pollution levels are frequently in parts per million in the air and parts per billion in the water and soil and this refers to the “safe” quantity limits of the pollutant.

Artificially created chemicals or drugs can be harmful to your health if they are not found somewhere in nature. The safest drugs are drugs extracted from plants or animals or those which are found in plants or animals and have been mass produced in the lab or factory. Because they are natural or part of nature there should be minimal fear but of course they can be unhealthy to your system if taken for too long or in too great a quantity. This is a reason why there are dosage limits and time limits for taking them.

If you are taking drugs not found in nature but those which are only produced artificially in the lab then you run the risk of ruining your metabolism in an unhealthy way either immediately with severe side effects or they can ruin your health in the long duration.

Artificial pesticides and herbicides made with chemicals not found in nature or those which don’t degrade in the soil or your stomach and intestines into harmless substances are true pollutants which should be outlawed.

GMO’s with bacterial genes inserted into them are unnatural pollutants with almost guaranteed long duration harm to your health. These kinds of genetically modified organisms can be successfully used in the mass production biologically of desired substances but they should never be a part of the food chain. Eating them will affect your present metabolism in a harmful way and even harm the genes of future generations of humans.

CONCLUSION:

Before you get paranoid about pollution remember to eat as much certified organic food as possible and if you occasionally ingest pesticides, herbicides, or meat gotten from growth hormones or antibiotics added to animal feed then you won’t immediately die and the effect on your long duration health and metabolism will be minimal.

Why are more humans dying of cancer than a hundred years ago? It doesn’t take much common sense to realize that the only significant thing which has changed is a polluted food and drink supply and the artificial prescription drugs which you are on!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT E-BOOKS

Kindle-2-front1

Is there a guarantee that if you input the exact title name that your e-book will appear first on the search page? No. A few of my unique titles do but most are lost in the shuffle or Amazon placement algorithm.

If you use your computer and input e-book followed by the title then you will get slightly better placement results. However, I used a different computer than my own and got poorer placement results so I suspect that Amazon is fine tuning the search results to the author’s computer.

When I first published my e-books in 2011, about 17 of them, I sold an average of 3 to 4 a month. Today, I am selling two to three a year so it seems that the placement of the books is constantly changing and gets worse the older that your book publishing date is.

Key words, ISBN number, and customer reviews of your e-books appear to have no different effects on the placement of your e-book when it is searched for.

I strongly suspect that money and a biased editorial staff at Amazon is the prime determining factor in the placement of your e-book in their search engine. Blockbuster celebrity books appear first and I am not sure what money deals Amazon makes with book publishers themselves to get better placement.

In three years after publishing 17 e-books I have made about $100 from selling them. Not very encouraging statistics for the independent e-book self-publisher!!!!!! I also published with Barnes and Noble and got similar results.

It seems that celebrities with a hundred thousand followers are the only ones making money in the book publishing business these days unless you have written an overpriced text book which many schools are using.

Reading is also becoming a lost pastime with the younger generation so it seems that most book authoring will be a dead financially unrewarding profession in the near future.

Rare inventive authors create buzz for their book and reach over a hundred thousand potential customers. However, if you are laid back with a handful of followers then you will make almost no money at all e-book publishing!!!!!!

COMMON SENSE is a revolutionary book of about 800 pages for $3. It appears on approximately page 6 if you search by title so I strongly suspect the book is being censored by the Amazon editorial staff and it is not the placement algorithm’s fault.

If publishing an e-book boosts your ego, improves your writing, or if you want to leave a legacy for your offspring and grandchildren then it is not a total waste of time.
