"A professor of medicine and editor of the prestigious Archives of environmental Health, he became world famous for discovering and proving the carcinogenicity of asbestos; he is considered one of the foremost authorities on chemical brain injury. He wrote in 1998: "Detergents and cleaning agents must be chosen with care to avoid chlorine, ammonia and other brain-violating chemicals ... perhaps the most harmful cosmetic chemicals are the solvents in polishes for fingernails."

"These environmental stimuli are called stressors. Very often, stressors are annoying or negative experiences—like having to take an exam, having your job performance evaluated by a superior, or arguing with a family member. But sometimes the environmental stimulus is positive—like getting married or going to an exciting movie. Obviously what produces stress varies from person to person; or, if you will, one person's stressor is another person's pleasure. Stress is important because if you are stressed out, all your symptoms will get worse. So stress, like depression, is a symptom multiplier."

"Due to the unresolved issues relating to potential environmental toxins in some farmed salmon and the seemingly real threat some salmon farms are to the environment, we cannot at this time recommend farm-raised salmon (whether canned, frozen, or fresh). To be environmentally responsible in your fish choices, consult the following websites for the latest information. environmental issues surrounding shrimp are particularly complicated and a look at these websites will help you be an informed consumer: (888-397-6649) (202-387-3525) www.mbayag."

"What's more, you will be in the glamorous company of the likes of Nicole Kidman, Jane Fonda, Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Al Gore and many more who swear by many of those products (not as paid ads), because they are committed to environmental truth. The money saved on commercial cleaners could go into organic food. Kitchen It comes as no surprise, that here we find the neurotoxic polishing materials and aromatic detergents, the endocrine disrupting plastic cling wraps, and neurotoxic (and carcinogenic) formaldehyde producing dishwashing detergent."

"Men's hair dyes are even worse: they usually contain acetate, which is not only a known carcinogen, but its presence in the body enhances the effects of other environmental carcinogens. Pregnant mothers using hair dye increase their kids' risk of cancer ten times. Phosphates in laundry detergents are banned in Europe, but here it is stdl a matter of choice which you buy. Laundry softeners and anti-cling materials almost always contain carcinogenic benzene and, especiady in chddren, often cause eczema."

"We now know that at least 2/3 of all cancers are due to environmental toxins, especially pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and industrial solvents—not because of smoking or other life-style factors. Because of the enormous financial implications, this process of education and reform is understandably slow and often corrupted. Currently, Health Canada faces law suits for negligence in the range of $ 13 billion dollars. In their annual meeting this year in May, the Canadian Association of Journalists identified Health Canada as the most secretive and undemocratic institution in Canada."

"The environmental Dimension A growing number of scientists are concerned that environmental changes and ecological disruption caused by humans are playing a role in the evolution of viruses. Though there's little proof, the list of possible influences is growing and gaining support by scientists and environmentalists. Population explosion is just one of them. The world is being smothered by people. The more crowded we become, the easier it is for infection to spread, especially in Third World communities where poverty and lack of sanitation are already a breeding ground for disease."

"Her history was not terribly remarkable: raised in a loving family, she'd gone to law school with the dream of becoming an environmental advocate, but jobs in environmental law were hard to come by and she became a tax attorney instead. With the passage of time however, she found she hated her job. Her depression and fatigue grew and were now making it impossible for her to continue working. Early on, I discovered this woman had an artistic temperament—she was a gifted painter and a pianist, though she hadn't applied these talents in years."

"For the sensitive individual, these exposures can be debilitating and can lead to what is now called "environmental illness." Environmental Medicine was pioneered by doctors like Dr. William Rea, a car-diothoracic surgeon at Dallas environmental Health Center, and Walter Crinnion, N.D., associate professor at Bastyr University (Kenmore, Washington) and specialist in environmental Medicine. There are now well over seven hundred doctors practicing environmental Medicine, and thousands practicing Functional Medicine."

"Other experiments involving environmental stressors such as heat, cold, lack of nutrients, ultraviolet light, and toxins all come to the same startling conclusion: at the right dose, these potentially lethal factors can actually promote survival.1 Just like desert plants, animals that survive environmental challenges are naturally selected to reproduce when times get better. I take advantage of hormesis when I perform heart surgery by briefly shutting off the flow of blood to the heart."

"The Critical (or "Chaos") Phase Changed social and environmental relations put pressure on the established culture, placing into question time-honored values and worldviews and the ethics and ambitions associated with them. Society becomes chaotic in the chaos theory sense of the term: it does not lack order but exhibits a subtle order that is extremely sensitive to fluctuations. The evolution of the dominant culture—the way people's values, views, and ethics respond to change—determines the outcome of the system's chaos leap, that is, the way its developmental trajectory forks off. 4(a)."

"Some difficulty using the tea has been reported by the following: • People who are very sensitive to environmental toxins. • People who take too much Flor-Essence. • Those who have never done any kind of detoxifying before and are not familiar with detoxification signs, such as mild diarrhea, nausea, or a minor skin rash. Low-grade fever, headaches, muscle aches, or other flu-like symptoms can also be signs of detoxifying. All of these discomforts indicate that the tea is working, but it may work too efficiently. There are a few other things that can be done to alleviate this."

"Various studies have shown maitake mushrooms to effectively inhibit environmental carcinogens, stimulate tumor inhibitors, inhibit angiogenesis, and promote apoptosis of cancer cells. In a nonrandomized clinical study, 165 patients diagnosed with various stages III-IV cancers and aged 25 to 65 were given Maitake D-fraction with crude maitake powder tablets only or with chemotherapy. The tumor regression or significant improvements were observed among 11 out of 15 breast cancer patients, 12 out of 18 lung cancer patients, and 7 out of 15 liver cancer patients."

"Were we to create a world without tobacco (or various environmental pollutants), much disease would be prevented; mortality would be reduced dramatically—not only just to smokers themselves, but also to those around them. As we will show in chapter 8, this is not a hypothetical conclusion. Thus, the issue is not the effectiveness of prevention. Rather the question is: to what degree does routine medical screening contribute to prevention? This chapter has provided some counterintuitive answers."

"Even so, environmental concerns, even ones that are known causes of cancer, are beyond the mission of the public health establishment. Finally, our third question: who makes money by keeping us healthy? Alas, there is no one. APPENDIX A ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE In 1971, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger made a secret trip to China, a country with which the United States had no diplomatic (and hardly another ties) at the time. One of the few reporters in the Kissinger entourage was James Reston of the New York Times."

"Other sources of free radicals and other oxidative stresses include environmental factors such as pollution, hard radiation, cigarette smoke, and certain pesticides. Two molecules share electrons in q a stable carbon- The stable compound is broken by a ¦ carbon bond free radical into one stable molecule and a new free radical molecule. This starts a chain reaction that can be stopped by an antioxidant such as vitamin C Carbon Figure 2-3 Free radicals in action. To neutralize a free radical, vitamin C can donate two hydrogen atoms, thus becoming dehydroascorbic acid."

"This means a willingness to accept responsibility for maintaining your own health, with a realistic view of economic conditions and environmental factors, setting goals, honestly confronting resistance, and getting help when necessary to overcome that resistance. It also means a willingness to let go of old habits to make room for growth."

"This distracts people (including health professionals) from the fact that many diseases share the same cause, and that cause is often rooted in lifestyle choices such as poor diet, smoking, and lack of exercise; environmental factors; or economic status. The telling characteristic of the biomedical-commercial approach to health is that regardless of the primary source of disease, the biomedical-commercial approach offers ("pushes" is perhaps a better word) commercially advantageous solutions. The obesity epidemic in the United States is a perfect example."

- John Abramson, Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine (P.S.) (Get the book.)

"Just knowing these recommendations, however, is not enough: Making positive changes is often complicated by personal inertia and social, economic, and environmental factors beyond the control of individuals and even whole communities. This is where ongoing relationships with primary care doctors and other medical professionals can help to bridge the gap between the science that informs preventive health care and the personal resistance that can make change so difficult. Still, the obesity and diabetes epidemics show that the focus of medicine cannot be limited to the health of individuals."

"Those environmental signals, for instance, can cause cells to spur protein shape changes, and the changes in turn pass information on to the DNA in the cell nucleus. Lipton wrote, "Studies of protein synthesis reveal that epigenetic [above the level of genes] 'dials' can create 2000 or more variations of [regulatory] proteins from the same gene blueprint."13 The blueprint of life, then, may not be DNA, but rather our cells' ability (intelligence) to communicate with the environment."

"We are fighting terrorism, poverty, criminality, cultural conflict, climate change, environmental degradation, ill health, even obesity and other "sicknesses of civilization" with the same means and methods that produced the problems in the first place—we are resorting to armies and police forces, technological fixes, and temporary remedial measures. We have not mustered the will and the vision to bring about timely transformation. IS IT TOO LATE?"

"FROM ACUTE TO LASTING DEVASTATION COMING OFF XANAX frequently produces withdrawal symptoms such as overwhelming anxiety and panic attacks, unbearable insomnia, bouts of dreadful depression, extreme irritability, nausea and vomiting, migrainelike sensitivity to environmental stimulation, shakes, sweating, hallucinations and abnormal sensations, agonizing muscle cramps, and in the extreme, confusion, psychosis, and grand mal seizures. And while Xanax may be more difficult to withdraw from than some other benzodiazepine tranquilizers, all of them can cause these withdrawal symptoms."

"The average American places twice the environmental load on the planet as the average Swede, three times that of the Italian, thirteen times the Brazilian, thirty-five times the Indian, and two hundred and eighty times the Haitian. THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM The world's financial system is unsustainable as well. This unsustain-ability is structural and not immediately apparent; despite periodic crises, economic growth, measured in monetary terms, continues. Yet the current patterns of economic growth unbalance the financial system. The U.S."

"Many health-care professionals believe that ADD/ADHD (or behavior that mimics it) arises from excessive sugar intake,food additives, excessive television viewing, inadequate limit setting, or social and environmental factors such as poverty or family chaos. even six weeks, the child is engaged and cooperative. Then the novelty wears off, and the demands of interacting with classmates intensify or exhaustion settles in. These are usually the conditions that cause a child to hit or kick another child without warning or provocation."

"A review article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that "symptoms of ongoing asthma in adults appear to be increased by exposure to environmental oxidants and decreased vitamin C supplementation." Asthmatics have a higher need for vitamin C than do members of the general population. One to two grams of vitamin C have been shown in studies to be the most helpful. This level is also helpful for those suffering from allergy or an excess production of histamine."
