Nottoo long ago all food grown in Belizewas or ganic. W ith commercial growing came agrochemicals andconcerns about the health of both thesoil and the consumer In recent times in Belize, the only way to assure thatfood is grown safely and organicallyis to grow your own. Consumers worldwide havebecome increasingly alarmed at theincidence of agrochemical poisons intheir food because indications arethat it is the cause of increases incancer and other serious diseases.There are many people who simplydon’t want produce that has beenexposed to agrochemicals or otherenvironmental toxins and GMOs. Some people are turning toorganically produced vegetables inBelize because they know thatagrochemicals are often not safelyused. W ashing can‘t make vegetables safe because some of the chemicalsare inside the produce. Belize,unfortunately is not yet suf ficiently monitoring the safety of the vegetablesin the markets. There is nomechanism to guarantee that thefarmer harvests and sells according to Organic P Organic P Organic P Organic P Organic P rr rr r oduce Becoming A R oduce Becoming A R oduce Becoming A R oduce Becoming A R oduce Becoming A R eality F eality F eality F eality F eality F or Belize or Belize or Belize or Belize or Belize Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Litter Bug!!! Litter Bug!!! Litter Bug!!! Litter Bug!!! Litter Bug!!! safe guidelines. How are consumersto find a nontoxic solution? Greenhouse technology has recentlymade the commercial growing ofor ganic produce easier and cheaper In the last few years, small farmershave found they can grow certainvegetables more reliably undergreenhouses, thus increasing theirprofits. These sealed greenhousesnaturally decrease the need foragrochemicals and the result is saferproduce. The recent availability ofnatural “green seal” plant medicineshas also contributed to organicproduce becoming a reality Many farmers have readily embraced this‘natural’ path due to their inherentsuspicion of agrochemical poisonsand their concern for their ownfamilies’ health. Consumers in Belize have comeone giant step closer to havingorganic produce as the result of theinitiative of a San Ignacio group. OnNovember 10, the Maya MountainLearning Exchange initiated a seriesof monthly symposiums on ‘W ellness’ at the Maya Mountain Lodge. Thefirst 3 months are dedicated to“Finding Healthy Foods”. The firstsession, attended by 50 consumers,producers, and health food venders, generated positive commitment bymany of the participants to makingorganic produce available. Participants immediately organizedan organic market place where safeproduce could be picked up aswell as purchased. There is muchenthusiasm for developing a largerbuying group before the Decembersymposium. After the meeting, a facebook page, “Cayo HealthyFood”, was launched and receivedover 400 ‘likes’ within 2 weeks. A facebook group and google groupwere launched to broadcast a weeklyprice list of available products so thatconsumers could order by email ortelephone and pickup their order onSaturdays. Inquiries and orders are nowcoming from as far away as SanPedro, Belize City and Punta Gorda. The advice this Cayo group is givingto other areas is to copy their effortby organizing a buyers’ group in theirown area and sharing shipping costs. Demand may soon outstrip thesupply because people are seriouslyinterested in assuring safe food fortheir families. The farmers feel surethat any shortages will be temporaryand that, given time, they can catchup with the demand.An increasing number of farmersin San Antonio, Cayo, are now motivated to study and comply withOrganic Certification. Their interesthas been greatly influenced by thediscovery of this new organic buyermarket. They are already learningabout new ways to control pests andfungus organically assisted bymembers of the Belize OrganicAlliance (BOA), the Organic Unit atthe Central Farm Agriculture S tation, and others. Certification is going to take time,but the producers are committingthemselves to maintaining theintegrity of their product byorganizing an organic farmers’ groupand insisting that their memberscomply with safe practices for organicgrowing.

As soon as life get s hard, they give up.” (Luke8:13 CEV) During the springtime, all the grassin Southern California turns green, thewildflowers and poppies bloom, andit’ s really pretty But the moment the rains stop, the hills turn brown again.Why? Because the grass has noroots. It can’t go down deep enoughto get water from the springs that are deep beneath the ground. When there are no roots, when aplant is in shallow soil, it may initiallysprout and look good, but it doesn’t last. The plants wither quickly becausethey don’t have roots. Luke 8:13 says, “The seeds that fell on rocky ground are the peoplewho gladly hear the message andaccept it. But they don’ t have deep roots, and they believe only for alittle while. As soon as life get s hard, they give up” (CEV). A lot of times we hear God’ s W ord and get excited about it, but we don’ t allow it to change us. W e act superficially W e react emotionally W e’re moved impulsively But we don’t take the time to let it sink in. Do you really want to be that way? Fruit Comes from Deep Roots No! Y ou want to be a deep person, not a shallow person. Y ou want to be a person with deep spiritual roots so that when recession comes and lastsseveral years, you’re able to keepbearing fruit. When the rough windscome and somebody in your family gets sick or somebody dies, the trialdoesn’ t blow you away because you’ve got roots. How do you develop spiritual roots? There are two ways: a daily time withGod and a weekly small group timewith other believers. Y ou’ve got to spend time alone with God, and you’ve got to spend time with otherbelievers. If you’re not spending time withGod on a daily basis, you’re going todry up and blow away when the pressure is on. Y ou won’ t be able to handle it. Y ou’ve got to make time to listen during a daily time with God.Y ou have to sit and be quiet. Y ou have to read the Bible and talk to God.Play some music. If you like tojournal, do that. Whatever it takes tokeep the focus on God, do it! Y ou’ve also got to have a weekly small group. Nobody has a completeperspective on life. Every one of ushas blinders on. The people in your small group can see things in your lifeyou can’ t see. That’ s why we need each other! Y ou learn from the people in your small group as you encourageeach other and your roots go deeper Contributed by: Janice Swift Heb 2:10 Perfect through suffering Steel is iron plus fire. Soil is rock,plus heat, or glacier crushing. Linen isflax plus the bath that cleans, the combthat separates, and the flail thatpounds, and the shuttle that weaves.Human character must have a plusattached to it. The world does notforget great characters. But greatcharacters are not made of luxuries,they are made by suffering. I heard of a mother who broughtinto her home as a companion to herown son, a crippled boy who was alsoa hunchback. She had warned herboy to be very careful in his relationsto him, and not to touch the sensitivepart of his life but go right on playingwith him as if he were an ordinary boy She listened to her son as they wereplaying; and after a few minutes hesaid to his companion: “Do you know what you have got on your Reaching Perfection back?” The little hunchback was embarrassed, and he hesitated amoment. The boy said: “It is the box in which your wings are; and someday God is going to cut it open,and then you will fly away and bean angel.” Some day God is going to reveal the fact to every Christian, thatthe very principles they nowrebel against, have been theinstruments which He used inperfecting their charactersand moulding them into perfection,polished stones for His greatbuilding yonder —Cortland Myers Suffering is a wonderful fertilizerto the roots of character The great object of this life is character This is the only thing we can carry with usinto eternity … T o gain the most of it and the best of it is the object ofprobation. —Austin Phelps “By the thorn road and no other is the mount of vision won.” By: Rick W arr en Contributed by: Janice Swift James 1:21 says, “Get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives,and humbly accept the wordGod has planted in your hearts,for it has the power to save your souls” (NLT). “Humbly accept” means you let go of your pride and stop try-ing to figure it out on your own.This is the key to opening yourmind and heart so that you canhear from the Lord.

The airport onthe other end had turned a tacky redand green, and loudspeakers blaredannoying elevator renditions ofcherished Christmas carols. Beingsomeone who took Christmas veryseriously and being slightly tired, I was not in a particularly goodmood. Going to check in my luggage(which, for some reason, hadbecome one suitcase with entirelynew clothes) I saw hanging mistletoe. Not real mistletoe, but verycheap plastic with red paint on someof the rounder parts and green painton some of the flatter and pointierparts, that could be taken for mistletoe only in a very Picasso sortof way W ith a considerable degree of irritation and nowhere else to vent it,I said to the attendant, Even if I were not married, I wouldnot want to kiss you undersuch a ghastly mockery ofmistletoe." "Sir look mor e closely at wher e the mistletoe is." (pause) "Ok, I see that it's above the luggage scale, which is the placeyou'd have to step forward for akiss." "That's not why it's there." (pause) "Ok, I give up. Why is it there?" "It's there so you can kiss your luggage goodbye."

So the dentist painted her teethblue. The blond went back to her carand called her friend to talk about Blond Blue-tooth many things. While she was driving apoliceman stopped her “Mam, your were talking on your mobile while you were driv-ing. Here is how much you mustpay .” “Oh come on!! Don’ t you see I have blue-tooth?!” A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read: "Puppies For Sale" Signs like that have a way of attracting small children and sureenough, a little boy appeared underthe store owner's sign. "How much are you going to sell the puppies for?" he asked. The store owner replied,"Anywhere from $30 to $50." The little boy reached in his pocketand pulled out some change. "I have $2.37," he said. "Can I please look at them?" The store owner smiled andwhistled and out of the kennel cameLady who ran out in the aisle of his store followed by five teeny tiny balls of fur One puppy was lagging considerably behind. Immediately the little boy singledout the lagging, limping puppy andsaid, "What's wrong with that little dog?" The store owner explained that theveterinarian had examined the littlepuppy and had discovered it didn'thave a hip socket. It would alwaysbe lame. The little boy became excited."That is the puppy that I want to W e AMS T o Please buy ." The store owner said, "No, you don't want to buy that little dog.If you really want him, I'll just givehim to you." The little boy got quite upset. Helooked straight into the store owner'seyes, pointing his finger and said, "I don't want you to give him to me.That little dog is worth everybit as much as all the other dogsand I'll pay full price. In fact, I'llgive you $2.37 now and 50 cents a month until I have him paidfor ." The store owner countered, "Y ou really don't want to buy this littledog. He is never going to be ableto run and jump and play with youlike the other puppies." T o his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg toreveal a badly twisted, crippled leftleg supported by a big metal brace.He looked up at the store owner andsoftly replied, "W ell, I don't run so well myself, and the littlepuppy will need someone whounderstands."

V isit us T oday!! Glaucoma is a term describinga group of ocular (eye) disorders resulting in optic nerve damage or lossto the field of vision, in many patientscaused by a clinically characterizedpressure buildup in regards to the fluidof the eye (intraocular pressureassociated optic neuropathy) In a large number of glaucoma patients,however the intraocular pressure (IOP) is normal, i.e. below 20 mm Hg. These patients display the samesigns of glaucomatous damage asthose with an elevated IOP; theircondition is thus called normal tensionglaucoma. The disorders can beroughly divided into two main Glaucoma categories, "open-angle" and "closed-angle" (or "angleclosure") glaucoma. The angle refers to the area between the iris andcornea, through which fluid must flowto escape via the trabecularmeshwork, an area of tissue in theeye located around the base of thecornea. Closed-angle glaucoma canappear suddenly and is often painful;visual loss can progress quickly but the discomfort often leads patientsto seek medical attention beforepermanent damage occurs.Open-angle, chronic glaucoma tendsto progress at a slower rate andpatients may not notice they have lostvision until the disease has progressedsignificantly The increased intraocular pressurecan permanently damage visionin the affected eye(s) and lead toblindness if left untreated. It isnormally associated with increasedfluid pressure in the eye (aqueous humour) The term "ocular hypertension" is used for people with consistently raised intraocularpressure (IOP) without any associated optic nerve damage.Conversely the term 'normal tension' or 'low tension' glaucoma is used forthose with optic nerve damage andassociated visual field loss, butnormal or low intraocular pressure. The nerve damage involves lossof retinal ganglion cells in acharacteristic pattern. The manydifferent subtypes of glaucoma can allbe considered to be a type of opticneuropathy Raised intraocular pressure (above 21 mmHg or 2.8 kPa) is the most important and only modifiable risk factor for glaucoma.However some may have high eye pressure for years and never developdamage, while others can developnerve damage at a relatively lowpressure. Untreated glaucoma canlead to permanent damage of theoptic nerve and resultant visual fieldloss, which over time can progress toblindness. When the scleral venous sinus isblocked to where aqueous humor isnot reabsorbed at a faster rate than itis being secreted, elevated pressurewithin the eye occurs. Pressure in theanterior and posterior chamberspushes the lens back and putspressure on the vitreous body The vitreous body presses the retinaagainst the choroid and compressesthe blood vessels that feed the retina.W ithout a suf ficient blood supply retinal cells will die and the optic nerve may atrophy causing blindness. T ypically the nerves furthest from the focal point fail first because of theirdistance from the central bloodsupply to the eye; thus, vision loss dueto glaucoma tends to start at the edgeswith the peripheral visual field,leading to progressively worse tunnelvision. Glaucoma has been called the"silent thief of sight" because the loss of vision often occurs graduallyover a long period of time, andsymptoms only occur when thedisease is quite advanced. Once lost,vision cannot normally be recovered,so treatment is aimed at preventingfurther loss. W orldwide, glaucoma is the second-leading cause of blindnessafter cataracts. It is also the leadingcause of blindness among African Americans. Glaucoma affects one in200 people aged 50 and younger and one in 10 over the age of 80. If thecondition is detected early enough, itis possible to arrest the developmentor slow the progression with medicaland surgical means. Signs and symptoms Open-angle glaucoma accounts for 90% of glaucoma cases in the UnitedStates. It is painless and does not haveacute attacks. The only signs aregradually progressive visual field loss,and optic nerve changes (increased cup-to-disc ratio on fundoscopicexamination). Closed-angle glaucoma accountsfor less than 10% of glaucoma casesin the United States, but as many ashalf of glaucoma cases in othernations (particularly Asian countries) About 10% of patients with closed angles present with acuteangle closure crises characterized bysudden ocular pain, seeing halos Continues On Page 14

Liquor License Notice around lights, red eye, very highintraocular pressure (>30 mmHg) nausea and vomiting, suddenlydecreased vision, and a fixed, mid-dilated pupil. It is also associated withan oval pupil in some cases. Acute angle closure is an emer gency Causes Of the several causes for glaucoma, ocular hypertension (increased pressure within the eye) is the most important risk factor in mostglaucomas, but in some populations,only 50% of people with primaryopen-angle glaucoma actually haveelevated ocular pressure. Dietary No clear evidence indicates vitamin deficiencies cause glaucoma inhumans. It follows, then, that oralvitamin supplementation is not arecommended treatment forglaucoma. Caffeine increasesintraocular pressure in those with glaucoma, but does not appear toaffect normal individuals. Ethnicity and sex Many people of East Asian descent are prone to developing angle closureglaucoma due to shallower anteriorchamber depths, with the majority ofcases of glaucoma in this populationconsisting of some form of angleclosure. Inuit also have a 20to 40-times higher risk of developingprimary angle closure glaucoma.W omen are three times more likely than men to develop acute angleclosure glaucoma due to their shallower anterior chambers. Peopleof African descent are three times more likely to develop primaryopen-angle glaucoma. Genetics Positive family history is a risk factor for glaucoma. The relative riskof having primary open-angleglaucoma (POAG) is increased about twoto four-fold for individuals whohave a sibling with glaucoma.Glaucoma, particularly primaryopen-angle glaucoma, is associatedwith mutations in several differentgenes (including MYOC, ASB10, WDR36, NTF4, and TBK1genes) although most cases of glaucoma do not involve these geneticmutations. Normal-tension glaucoma,which comprises one-third of POAG is also associated with geneticmutations (including OP A1 and OPTN genes). V arious rare congenital/genetic eye malformations are associated withglaucoma. Occasionally failure of the normal third-trimester gestational atrophy of the hyaloid canal and thetunica vasculosa lentis is associatedwith other anomalies. Angle closure-induced ocular hypertensionand glaucomatous optic neuropathymay also occur with theseanomalies, and has been modelled inmice. Other Other factors can cause glaucoma, known as "secondary glaucoma" including prolonged use of steroids(steroid-induced glaucoma) ; conditions that severely restrictblood flow to the eye, such assevere diabetic retinopathy andcentral retinal vein occlusion(neovascular glaucoma) ; ocular trauma (angle-recession glaucoma) ; and uveitis (uveitic glaucoma). In a large study in the UK, glaucoma patients had a 29%increased incidence of systemichypertension compared to ageandsex-matched controls Continued F r om P ag e 1 0 Glaucoma
