Breezy Hill Farm Update Feb. 3, 2019

  • Ground Beef pickup this past Saturday went very well.  There was a minor hiccup with the pricing.  My spread sheet had the wrong multiplier.  Those that paid with a check were correct.  Those with cash are owed some.  I have made a list of those and will credit it back on the next round.  
  • Next pickup will be Mar 2.  Again, I could  only get one animal scheduled, so there may be not enough to fill all the requests.

  • Appendectomy is the most common emergency surgery performed in the U.S.  Many doctors will even suggest prophylactic removal of the appendix when you’re having some other abdominal surgery done
  • With the help of white blood cells known as innate lymphoid cells, the appendix acts as a reservoir for beneficial bacteria

  • Once your body has successfully fought and rid itself of a gut infection, the bacteria emerge from the biofilm of the appendix to recolonize your intestines

  • Recent research suggests nearly two-thirds of patients with appendicitis can be successfully treated with antibiotics alone

  • In an earlier study, only two of 77 participants who received antibiotics ended up requiring surgery within 24 hours, and only one-third of participants needed an appendectomy after being discharged, due to lack of improvement

WORCESTER, Mass. — Adding to growing evidence that pesticide use may be contributing to the decline of many bumblebee species across North America, a new study reveals that daily consumption of even small doses of a widely used class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids reduces the survival of queen and male bees, which are critical to the survival of wild populations.



As reported by Business Insider, the research team concluded that all of these sweeteners "had a toxic, stressing effect, making it difficult for gut microbes to grow and reproduce." While the authors do not directly refer to them as having antibiotic effects, when something is killing bacteria, that's essentially what's happening.
