comment Will boiling be enough to decontaminate standing water from pathogens and toxins?
I'd be interested to hear what about the water is unsafe, aside from pathogens, and whether a method exists to "destroy the toxins," whatever they may be.

comment How much garlic in the mountain kitchen?
The skeptic in me is unhappy with placing information from a naturopath on a site based on objective answers. I don't see there being anything wrong with eating lots of garlic, but I'd like to see some serious sources here if we are effectively claiming that garlic can "prevent colds and flu, stimulate circulation..." and so on.

It is certainly uncommon, but I once provided a tampon to a girl's group that was camping nearby when they happened to run out of them.
