"The manufacturer's argument went like this: it still owned the patent on the chemical into which Claritin is metabolized after being taken (sold as Clarinex). Therefore, Schering-Plough argued, its patent would be infringed if people were allowed to swallow a generic form of Claritin and metabolize it into a chemical on which Schering-Plough still held the patent. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the federal circuit did not agree. The next drug to take center stage in direct-to-consumer advertising was Vioxx."

"Xenoestrogens are chemicals found in the environment from pesticides or chemical fertilizers. They behave like estrogen in the body and have been linked to breast and prostate cancer. Many pesticides have been found in foods. In Israel, the three organochlorine pesticides banned (lindane, DDT, and BHC, or benzene hexachloride) were contaminating milk and dairy foods. DDT has since been banned in the United States, but it is still used overseas and can be found in many imported meats."

"Your brain receives a continuous flow of signals about your body's chemical balance, temperature, and oxygen consumption along with a never-ending stream of nerve impulses. This raw data comes as biochemical bursts with attached electrical charges, and these impulses travel up and down an intricate web of nerve cells to your brain. Once a signal reaches your brain, the cortex itself assembles an even more complex arrangement of biochemical and electrical information. Our brain doesn't inform us about this astonishing process."
- Ray Dodd, BeliefWorks: The Art of Living Your Dreams (Get the book.)

"The commonly used water disinfectant chlorine is another chemical commonly linked to asthma. To get an indication of how toxic it is to our lungs, you only have to go back to the reason why it was used as a weaponized gas in the First World War—a powerful lung irritant, it disabled people by targeting their lungs. This is why people who work around and swim regularly in pools that use chlorine as a water disinfectant are thought to be more prone to developing asthma."

"For many people these diseases can eventually be controlled by chemical avoidance and adequate nutrients alone. Considering the often extreme side effects that accompany most drugs used to treat high blood pressure and cholesterol, the program outlined in Part I has to be a better way. Supplements Good nutrition and supplementation is critical in not only helping the body rid itself of cardiovascular system-damaging toxins, but also essential in keeping the underlying structure of the cardiovascular system in good working order."

"Yiamouyiannis was a biochemical editor for chemical Abstracts Service, the world's largest chemical information center and the largest division of the American chemical Society, he began to publicly express his concern with the health risks associated with fluoridation. Mr. Small contacted Dr. Russell Rowlett, the editor-in-chief of chemical Abstracts, and communicated his displeasure' with the statements of Dr. Yiamouyiannis. Dr. Hewlett called Dr. Yiamouyiannis into his office several times and finally told him that if he spoke out against fluoridation one more time, he would be fired. Dr."

"Lobelia, for instance, contains hundreds of chemical compounds. It has 14 different alkaloids alone. These alkaloids have very different actions and their effectiveness is dosage related. Some of the chemicals in Lobelia enhance breathing; others dilate the bronchials, are antispasmodic, emetic, nerve stimulants, and so on. Lobelia is a classic example of why herbs are wholistic. Various chemicals in Lobelia effect you in a multitude of ways, depending on what type of illness, or what biochemical need you have. Which one of these chemicals should we consider the active ingredient?"

"In Gabriella's battle with rheumatoid arthritis, a combination of possible triggers—genetics, stress, infections, chemical exposures—causes her immune system to designate her own joints as foreign and attack them. Under stress, her body can release hormones and chemicals that could worsen the problem, a "We're under attack, release the troops!" response. By engaging in the mental exercises associated with her joys, she calms her already aggravated immune system. Gabriella's morning practice calls upon a bouquet of items from her Bliss List."

"It also has school supplies to avoid, like epoxy glues, chemical dyes, and plastic notebooks and binders. You can find good ecological school supplies at an increasing number of stores and Internet vendors: Office Depot (www.officedepot.com) has a good selection of eco-friendly school supplies, including Foray Recycled Groundwood Construction Paper and recycled multipurpose printer paper. Office Max (www.officemax.com) also has recycled postconsumer-waste printer paper. Whenever you buy paper, always look for the recycled-content and chlorine-free symbols.

"This substance is a major chemical participant in cellular energy production. As such, it's critically important for strong pumping action of the heart. Plus it provides superb protection against arterial plaque formation. An article in a medical journal had caught my attention. It reported how patients taking CoQIO were able to be weaned quickly from the heart-lung bypass machine used during open heart surgeries."

"A healthy endothelium produces chemical substances that allow for the normal expansion and relaxation of blood vessels. Endothelial health is critical to cardiovascular health. If you have a 40 to 50 percent narrowing of the arteries and impaired endothelial function, you are at greater risk for an adverse event than if you had an 80 percent narrowing of the arteries with intact endothelial function. The endothelial lining is extremely delicate and sensitive to injury. It can be damaged by a variety of insults."

"The New Cardiology Tests Blood Work As part of a complete physical, physicians always order a complete blood cell count (CBC), electrolytes (sodium, potassium), a chemical profile, and renal function tests. The usual cardiac evaluation will additionally include a lipid panel (total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and ratios for these lipids). We cover all these factors."

"Still others are experiencing environmental stress and degradation firsthand in the form of chemical imbalances and toxicity, and while they may not be diagnosed, they have very little energy and enthusiasm for life. Taking shade under our tree means having a place to rejuvenate, to rest the body, mind, and soul, and to escape the chaos of the world. This new way of living, with a foundation of compassionate action and conscious eating, consistently nourishes one's being with the pleasure, happiness, inner peace, and love that is our divine birthright."
- Gabriel Cousens, There Is a Cure for Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21-Day+ Program (Get the book.)

"Berkson suggests that women are more greatly affected by chemical exposures than men, probably because they have a higher ratio of body fat and different metabolic and elimination rates than men. ARSENIC IN TAP WATER Arsenic is another commonly found hormone disruptor suspected of playing a role in diabetes. Arsenic interferes with the action of glucocorticoid hormones, which belong to the same family of steroid hormones as estrogen and progesterone. Glucocorticoids turn on many genes that help regulate blood sugar and even ward off cancer."

"Genetic variations can also impair a basic biological process called methylation—that is, turning one bodily chemical into another by adding or removing methyl groups at the molecular level. Methyl groups are one of the most common structural units of organic compounds, consisting of three hydrogen atoms and a carbon atom linked to the remainder of the molecule. Methylation can turn treacherous homocysteine back into methionine, an essential amino acid."

"The study's investigators concluded that the chemical makeup of the berries differs from that of the root, yet the berries were very effective in treating diabetes. The recommended dose is 200 mg daily of ginseng extract standardized to 4 percent ginsenosides. In sensitive individuals, the most common side effects are excitability and nervousness, which usually decrease after the first few days. Children and pregnant or nursing women should not take ginseng without their doctor's knowledge, because it has estrogen-like effects."

"How Glycotoxins Are Formed in Food Food-derived glycotoxins are formed during a series of chemical reactions that take place between glucose and the proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids derived from the food you eat. These reactions ultimately damage tissues in the body, as glycotoxins prompt cells to send messages that lead to the production of inflammatory substances called cytokines. Experimental studies show that this is exactly what happens in glycotoxin-caused vascular (blood vessel) damage often seen in diabetes."

"The atoms of a molecule are held together by chemical bonds, which are controlled by the electrons. When these bonds are broken—which occurs naturally as part of metabolism, for example—free radicals are produced. The body can often ward off the damage these free radicals may cause by sending in antioxidants, substances that prevent the oxidative damage free radicals can inflict on the body's tissues. (We discuss antioxidants and their value in diabetes prevention in chapter 8."

"The link between diabetes and accelerated aging is a process called glycation, a common chemical reaction in which a sugar molecule is bonded to a protein or fat molecule inside the body (endogenous glycation) or outside the body (exogenous glycation). Limiting glycation is critical when it comes to preventing, reversing, or treating diabetic complications."

"It's not just because of the old theory that salicylates are frequently allergenic, but also because they are closely related to another natural food chemical called phenol. Phenols can cause physical, cognitive, and behavioral problems in people who have impairment of the natural detoxifying process of sulfation. Sulfation is closely related to methylation, and is often impaired in kids with autism and ADHD. Now here's where this whole thing gets even more interesting: Methylation doesn't just help break down toxins. It also helps break down neurotransmitters."

"As a general rule of thumb, if the list of ingredients is long and you cannot pronounce most of them, there are probably a lot of chemical additives in the product, and you're risking your health by eating it. Be sure to read the ingredients even when purchasing foods from a health food store or when the rest of the packaging is trying to convince you the food is healthy."

"These are simple, chemical reactions, usually to foods, that do not involve the immune system. Because they don't involve the immune system, they are not considered to be classic allergies. Therefore, they are often completely overlooked by allergists. Even so, intolerances can cause severe symptoms. For example, when some people eat the food substance known as tyramine, which is in wine and cheese, it triggers dilation of the blood vessels in their brains, and causes migraines. Another well-known example of food intolerance is lactose intolerance."

"In an effort to improve children's health, the EPA has targeted a wide range of environmental threats, including indoor air quality (from building materials, toxins used in chemical cleaners); outdoor air pollution (from vehicle emissions, secondhand tobacco smoke, dry-cleaning fluids); pesticide use (both at home and in schools); and lead (in paint, drinking water, and toys). Scientists are beginning to link these and certain other common exposures—like heavy metals, pesticides, dioxins, flame retardants, and PCBs—to different health problems."

"Phil Landrigan told me that the two leading brands of head-lice treatments contain the "very nasty chemical" hexachlorobenzene. We're talking about agricultural pesticides here—the very last substance we should be rubbing into our children's scalps! Why would we ever expose our children to such powerful toxins? Probably because head lice still carry a persistent stigma in society. Parents are under a great deal of pressure to get their kids "nit free" in three days, or else the kids aren't allowed back in school. But we're paying too high a price for this convenience."

"Medical science has discovered how sensitive the insulin receptor sites are to chemical poisoning. Metals such as cadmium, mercury, arsenic, lead, fluoride,51 and possibly aluminum may play a role in the actual destruction of beta cells through stimulating an auto-immune reaction to them after they have bonded to these cells in the pancreas. It is because mercury52 and lead attach themselves at highly vulnerable junctures of proteins that they find their great capacity to provoke morphological changes in the body."

"Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical that kills bacteria. The presence of hydrogen peroxide in the vagina would kill bad microbes like Candida. To date, there is some argument as to the ultimate effect of hydrogen peroxide producing Lactobacilli in the control of Candida in the vagina. In vitro (test tube) studies have shown that Lactobacilli can inhibit the growth of Candida albicans and its adherence on the vaginal lining."

"So while my grandfather could think a thought that commanded his body to "sit upright," for example, and his brain would send the signal of that thought to his body, the muscles would never receive it. The chemical would "hijack" the signal. In other words, my grandfather had developed a condition where his body worked against itself in a battleground between two conflicting kinds of chemistry—one that produced everything he needed to function normally, and the other preventing those functions from ever happening."

"The only difference between FOS and inulin is the number of chains in their chemical structure. Inulin and FOS are commercially available in foods and supplements. Inulin and FOS are synthesized from the sugar of beets and extracted from chicory root, respectively. By the way, chicory root is the root of the Belgian endive plant. FOS is thought to be one of the best prebiotics. This is because other prebiotics (inulin and other oligosaccharides such as oligofructose) have to be converted by the human body before they can be used by the probiotics. FOS does not need to be converted."
