Across the globe, about 4,500 children die each day from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation facilities. Over 90% of deaths from diarrhea diseases from unsafe water and sanitation occur in children under 5 years old.

The poor are especially hard hit. An infant born in sub-Saharan Africa is 520 times more likely to die from disease than a child born in Europe or the United States.

All told, more than 884 million of the world’s people still rely on drinking water sources that are unsafe.

SIGN the PETITION

Take action today in support of the UN’s work to supply clean, safe drinking water to the world’s poorest populations and urge UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to continue the UN’s life-saving work bringing water and sanitation to developing nations.

Through continued efforts of the United Nations and organizations like UNICEF, the world is currently on track to meet the Millennium Development Goal on water. With the exception of sub-Saharan Africa, all regions should meet their water targets — but only through continued dedication and efforts by the UN and member countries.

Together with partners like UNICEF, we are on a path to provide clean, safe drinking water to millions around the world who need it most.

UNICEF is on the front lines, doing whatever it takes to stop children dying from lack of access to clean, safe water and sanitation. UNICEF sponsors the UNICEF Tap Project which raises money each year in partnership with thousands of restaurants in the U.S. Every dollar from the TAP project supports UNICEF Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programs—saving and improving the lives of countless children in more than 100 countries around the globe.

Vitamin B12 for Vegans Confirmed

Viable Vitamin B12 for Vegans available for centuries as common component of Japanese daily diet ~ Shiitake Mushroom

Consider this: Do mushrooms require B12? Why would mushrooms adsorb and absorb the B12? Is this an accident of Nature;  or ~ is DNA much more intelligent than we realize?


In AUSTRALIA ~ University of Western Sydney completed ground-breaking research on the B12 content of button mushrooms.

In JAPAN ~ According to Dr. Kanichi Mori, Shiitake mushrooms have more vitamin B12 than milk and fish.

Brief:Certain types of Mushrooms are unique in that they contain Vitamin B12, something that vegetables can’t produce at all.  Since B12 is mainly of animal origin, deficiency is commonly associated with vegetarian diets.  Mushrooms were found to contain 0.32-0.65 mg per gram of B12, allowing just 3 g of fresh mushrooms to provide the RDA of this vitamin.  Vegetarians may find this a useful way of getting this important nutrient. ~ more at http://www.polymathium.com ~ This is possibly due to a subtle, potential symbiotic relationship that occurs between the three parties involved… humans, mushrooms, and B12 producing bacterium.
