Remember, if you are heading out to enjoy fireworks tonight to WEAR EARPLUGS - take extra in case you drop one or friends need some, too.

Especially for those doing heavy metal detox - this effect should be figured into the mix.

Try to stay out of the main wind path and take extra precautions with antioxidants, etc. Still, as a culture / society, our safety regarding the toxicity really needs to be considered.

Laser Light shows in some communities are solving various problems.

Of course, with such heat & fires across so much of the country right now, many communities have cancelled fireworks.

But that need not put the damper on fun or appreciation of brilliant colors & light. Maybe someone can come up with safer ways to take our breath away, eh?

Are fireworks bad for the environment?

Fireworks can unleash a shower of toxins into soil and water, and scientists are only beginning to figure out what that means for human health.
