Researchers Simplify Process to Purify Water Using Seed Extracts
Researchers have streamlined and simplified a process that uses extracts from seeds of Moringa oleifa trees to purify water, reducing levels of harmful bacteria by 90% to 99%. The hardy trees that are drought resistant are cultivated widely throughout many countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The protocol, which is outlined in a Current Protocols in Microbiology review, is low-cost and efficient, making it especially useful for people living in extreme poverty in developing countries who are presently drinking highly turbid and contaminated water. Of these, some 2 million are reckoned to die from waterborne diseases every year, with the majority of deaths occurring in young children.
“The use of these techniques will not be a panacea against waterborne disease; however, increasing the use of the Moringa tree would bring benefits in the shape of nutrition and income, as well as purer water,” said author Michael Lea.

Tea Party Comix 

They really don’t care about us…

RACISM

this genuinely hurt.. they really tried it

but let it go right

published in 2010 though
not the 50’s

they published 3 editions of full comic books like this……..

Amerikkka

I didn’t even want to reblog this… But y’all have to be educated… This is how they feel about us…. “They” as in, whomever feels this way about “us”.

2010 !?

I remember when this was published and they tried to bury the story.

I’m immortalizing the shit out of this.

a crimefighter

typical

two. thousand. and. ten

this is how the rest of the world sees us smh even with a black man as president

TWO FUCKING THOUSAND TEN.

LETS SHOW THESE MOTHERFUCKERS PEOPLE OF COLOR WILL SURPASS THEIR WHITENESS IN EDUCATION, POLITICS AND ECONOMICS. LETS MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE AND MAKE AND END TO THIS DEHUMANIZATION OF PEOPLE OF COLOR.

Ok, so it’s saying black people are uneducated and on drugs and completely worthless, but they’re the uneducated ones, who sound like they’re on drugs half the time. Like I had to literally spend two weeks straight with this one tea party type woman on a camping trip, and she spent a good long time talking about how Muslim stereotypes are true (note: I am a half Iranian Shi’ite) and also defended the KKK.
