Bad Mexican Face Creams

Mercury Poisoning Linked to Use of Face Cream

The Orange County Health Care Agency warns against the use of face creams that appear to be homemade or imported from Mexico due to potentially high levels of mercury. One case of mercury poisoning associated with use of these products has recently been identified in Orange County, and several others are under investigation.

The face cream claims to lighten skin, fade freckles and age spots, and treat wrinkles and acne. Air samples taken from the cream had more than 50,000 times the safe limit. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not allow mercury in drugs or cosmetics, expect under very specific conditions which these products do not meet. Read more…

Why is the SAUSD School Board MIA about the school cop that roughed up a kid?

Mike Dalati Ad


SAUSD school cop roughs up a kid

The Santa Ana Unified School District Police Department has launched an investigation into video footage apparently showing a school police officer restraining a sobbing 14-year-old boy with a headlock, according to the OC Register.

We broke this story – and it has since been reported in New York, in Philadelphia, and in Riverside.  But where has it not been reported?  That’s right – there is NO MENTION of this on the SAUSD’s website nor on their Facebook page.

SAUSD School Board Member Rob Richardson has not mentioned any of this on his Facebook Page.  SAUSD School Board Member Cecilia Iglesias has not mentioned it on her Facebook Page either.  What about the other SAUSD School Board Members?  I don’t think John Palacio and Audrey Noji have Facebook Pages.  Jose Alfredo Hernandez does but it is just used to hype his law firm.

Why doesn’t Santa Ana monetize Easter cruising instead of attacking it every year?

Published on April 10, 2014 by in Santa Ana

Ocean City Cruising

Here we go again.  The City of Santa Ana has announced, as usual, a crackdown on Easter Crusing:

Each Easter holiday, the City of Santa Ana experiences a high volume of unsanctioned cruising activity on Bristol St. This unsanctioned activity produces public safety concerns, numerous calls for service and grid-lock.

As with past years, the Santa Ana Police Department is taking pro-active measures to deter cruising activity throughout the city on Easter evening. Unfortunately, several city neighborhoods will be affected by the various street closures that will be established as a part of the anti-cruising effort. Read more…
