During the sixtieth session of the United Nations General Assembly (Second Committee, Agenda item 52), IIMSAM initiated a revised draft resolution on the “Use of Spirulina to combat hunger and malnutrition and help achieve sustainable development” which was submitted by: Burundi, Cameroon, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Paraguay. As a follow-up on this resolution, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) was requested to prepare a draft position on Spirulina. FAO’s report was presented in 2008 and includes the following recommendations...
Silverfish prefer damp, warm conditions such as those found around kitchen and bathroom plumbing. Start by vacuuming the area to remove food particles and insect eggs. Silverfish can be easily trapped in small glass containers. Wrap the outside with tape so they can climb up and fall in. They will be trapped inside because they cannot climb smooth surfaces. Drown them in soapy water. The best preventive control is to remedy the damp conditions.
Nontoxic silverfish traps are also commercially available.
Stink bugs found indoors can usually be controlled with a vacuum cleaner. Attics can harbor stink bugs which migrate in living areas of the home. Diatomaceous earth can be applied in attic areas. especially near openings to the living areas.
Nontoxic stink bug traps are also commercially available.

The fact is that mushroom research is in its infancy. Very few human trials have been conducted. Many things kill cancer cells in the lab but that doesn't mean these killers will do anything beneficial for a cancer patient. amygdalin - laetrile Amygdalin is a naturally occurring cyanogenic glycoside . 'Laetrile' is a word created from the first letters of laevorotatory and mandelonitrile and describes a semi-synthetic form of amygdalin. Both laetrile and amygdalin have a common structural component, mandelonitrile , that contains cyanide. * Amygdalin is found in certain nuts (., bitter almonds), plants (., cassava), and the pits of certain fruits (., apricots and peaches). "Cyanide is thought to be the main anticancer component of laetrile [amygdalin]." * The Cochrane Collaboration (CC) , among others , warns: Due to possible cyanide poisoning, laetrile can be dangerous. The CC reviewed 69 studies that tested laetrile or amygdalin for the treatment of cancer and reported: The claims that laetrile or amygdalin have beneficial effects for cancer patients are not currently supported by sound clinical data. There is a considerable risk of serious adverse effects from cyanide poisoning after laetrile or amygdalin, especially after oral ingestion. The risk–benefit balance of laetrile or amygdalin as a treatment for cancer is therefore unambiguously negative. * (PubMed summary here .)
