Good News Friday: Only you can prevent wildfires, and goats can help.

Yoga isn't the only thing goats are in the news for lately.

These benevolent bovidae's are now on fire prevention duty in California. Their task is to do what goats do best, eat!

A study from November of 2019  showed that one of the contributors to wildfires is non-native grasses, which are spreading more easily due to climate change. These non-native grasses make wildfires two to three times more likely.

Having a staff dedicated to mitigating weed growth along the hillside of southern California is not only economically nonviable but ineffective and difficult.

Have you ever seen a goat navigate a hillside? They can do things people can't. Not only are they experts at traversing technical terrain, but they also prefer to snack on the non-native grasses. Preventing wildfire two-fold just by doing what a goat does naturally.

Anaheim has renewed a contract with Environmental Land Management to keep goats munching on fire-fuel year round, NPR reported. 400 goats began grazing in Deer Canyon Park in July 2019 and the city plans to keep them around, but it's not just Anaheim! It's become a widespread practice after a crew of 500 volunteer fire fighting goats helped save the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library from the Easy Fire.

The key take-away; despite their historical superstitious ties to the devil and evil, these lovely animals are helping to prevent hell on earth as we know it. One bite at a time.

  • Certain foods assist the body in removing excess water. Cucumber is loaded with water and is an excellent source of fiber, potassium, all the B vitamins, phosphorus and magnesium. Salad greens contain vitamin A and C (just don’t buy Iceberg; it has virtually no nutritional value). Spinach is a wonderful source of calcium and it doesn’t cause mucus buildup like dairy milk. And, do yourself a favor by trading in Romaine lettuce for spinach in salads.

  • Drinking plenty of liquids like water, coconut water and green tea and eating cucumbers provide the essential antioxidants. Staying hydrated not only flushes out any toxins but also moisturizes the skin from within.

  • High blood sugar occurs when your body cannot convert sugar in the blood to energy for cells. This is a common issue for those with diabetes, or those at risk.
