alone holidays While the forecast for global warming won former Vice President Gore the Nobel Prize (that we never countered or commented upon), we realize many others have questioned global warming due to the many cold snaps, and heavy snow and ice that was greater in many areas most years this decade than ever before … so we instead chose to focus on “less hype” oriented news and hopefully more personal and relevant holiday season topics of interest. The articles that follow were a few that had the highest readership (that also might “still” be of interest this time of year for you).

Top 10 Health WARNINGS

The greatest health FEARS and WARNINGS began this decade in April 2009 as we saw the H1N1 swine flu emerged from Mexico, then fear spread across the media in the US and to Britain, then throughout the world.

What has been eclipsed and overlooked are many other HEALTH WARNINGS, some that have equal if not many times GREATER relevance for you and your family!

They are listed below in the order of highest readership (lowest to highest) … which for us is admittedly concerning. For example “MRSA” should be near to the top based on health risk and concerns. We will have more articles coming in 2010 on MRSA (with the hope it will have even higher readership) as well as others including swine flu.

We do not discount or suggest that the swine flu is not of high concern or interest. We simply hope that equally or more concerning health issues will be read this coming year for the sake of you and your loved ones.

The following articles had less readership than EACH swine flu article, yet all articles, we believe, were highly important:

Thank you for the many complements on our predictions that we have received already -- with most comments regarding the fact that our predictions (unlike most others) covered such a wide array of topics. We thank all of you who shared your comments and we together will watch to see what comes to fruition.

Our intention was not to attempt to be “psychics”, but rather to share possible circumstances and basis for those circumstances to allow you the opportunity to consider ways to prepare for the worst and the best of the coming decade.

The only thing we know for certain is that “these predictions are wrong”. What will be interesting is to learn how close to right they are in the coming years:
