"In response to growing health concerns, several major companies, like Dell, have committed to eliminating flame retardants from their products over the next few years. Until we understand more about these extremely high volume chemicals, we need to reduce our children's exposure to them whenever possible. While impossible to avoid altogether, flame retardants do not belong in the enclosed space where newborns spend the majority of their nights and days. Safer Cribs and Bedding. You should definitely invest in an organic nontoxic crib, mattress, and sheets."

"As I pointed out earlier, researchers haven't yet quantified the precise role environmental pollutants play in the growing number of birth defects we're seeing in this country; a recent estimate put the figure anywhere between 3 and 25 percent. We do know that roughly 2 to 3 percent of babies born today have a major birth defect, and about 18 percent of newborns are diagnosed with some minor structural anomaly. Because scientists have only recently begun studying the links between these health issues and the environment, they don't yet know at precisely what age the critical exposures occur."

"Our infant mortality rate is another issue of growing concern. According to a recent study conducted by Save the Children, the United States has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the industrialized world, with five deaths per one thousand births. Though we have more neonatologists and neonatal intensive care units than Australia, Canada, and Britain, we also have a higher infant mortality rate. American babies are 3 times more likely to die in the first month of life as children born in Japan and 2.5 times more likely than babies in Finland, Iceland, or Norway."

"Spotlight On: Precocious Puberty Every year, our children are growing up a little faster—not just psychologically, but physically. Premature sexual development has become a fact of life in recent years, especially for African-American children. "In one human generation," said Sandra Steingraber, "we have dropped the age of breast development by one year and a half."

"Then the dot begins growing in the space above me. As it grows, the humming sound volume keeps sounding—louder and louder. AAAAAHHHHHH! I can barely believe what I'm seeing and feeling. Simultaneous with the expanding volume, a distinct conical shape begins forming and growing outward from the initial dot and it's headed toward me! The humming sound continues increasing, vibrating the space around me with enormous intensity, and as it does, the conical shape comes closer and closer."

"Thus, the growing problem of obesity lies with the "growing disparities in income and wealth, [and the] declining value of the minimum wage" Evidence is emerging "that obesity in America is largely an economic issue.30 Recall our discussion from chapter 5 of statins, the drug of choice in preventing heart attacks. According to one meta-analysis that we reviewed, statins reduced heart attacks and strokes by 1.4% compared with the control. In other words, about 71 patients would need to be treated for 3 to 5 years to prevent one such event."

"In fact, Justinian, growing impatient, had sent envoys to Italy carrying the details of a proposed peace treaty with Vitigis that would grant the Gothic ruler all of Italy north of the Po Rivet, with the emperor retaining direct authority over everything else. There can be little doubt that Vitigis would have accepted the offer, if he had been permitted to see it. However, Belisarius saw it first, and was "moved to vexation"43 at the prospect of anything short of total victoty."

"Barry set up a batch of experimental petri dishes and matched them with a set of controls of the identical type of fungus growing in the same conditions. He enlisted ten volunteers and assigned five experimental petri dishes and five controls to each person. At the appointed time, each volunteer was asked to send intentions to slow the growth of the fungi in the experimental petri dishes. After the experiment, the lab assistant measured the growth of each sample of Rhizoctonia by outlining its boundary on tracing paper."

"She wasn't growing well. She was beautifully delicate, but too tiny. Anju spoke to Priya's pediatrician often, but he wasn't concerned. He said that he saw babies every day who spit up their food and were fussy, but they all outgrew it. He thought Priya was generally healthy-no infections, no illnesses, and normal behavioral development. When Priya was nine months old, Anju was eating an ice cream cone, and she thought, why not let the baby have a lick? Her first ice cream—one more happy little ritual! So Anju put a dab of it in Priya's mouth. Priya's lips started to swell."

"Another factor that robs you of the nutrients you should get from your food is that many fresh fruits, vegetables, and other unrefined foods are lower in important nutrients than they should be because of adverse growing conditions, poor food handling techniques, poor cooking methods, and poor soil quality low in trace minerals. "The alarming fact is that foods . . . now being raised on a million acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain needed minerals, are starving us, no matter how much of them we eat." You may think this statement, voiced in the U.S."

"It's important to note here that it is best to GOOD SOURCES OF SOLUBLE FIBER Note: We did not include the amount of soluble fiber in these foods because fiber content can vary significantly due to growing conditions and how the produce was processed or stored."

"Given that more than 60 percent of Americans are overweight (body mass index [BMI] of 25 or greater) and nearly one third of them are obese (BMI of 30 or greater), and that a growing percentage of young people are overweight as well, it is projected that there will be a 165 percent increase in the number of people with diabetes by 2050. It is also projected that without preventive efforts, one third of the children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime."

"In her own practice, Anju was continuing to have success with the autistic children she was treating, and this helped to fuel her growing sense of confidence that she could improve the health of her daughter, whose immune system was as oversensitized and as damaged as that of any child I'd ever heard about. Anju was bringing down Priya's inflammation, modulating her skewed immunity, desensitizing her to potential allergens, reducing her level of toxicity, and building her strength and vitality. Priya, as usual, was great about doing all the treatments, and that gave Anju hope, too."

"Rising wages, and therefore rising prosperity, resulted in a growing population—one that could not feed itself without expanding arable acreage. As human laborers became scarcer than the land they worked, the ability of landlords—the etymology of the compound word is revealing—to keep them tied to the land was severely weakened, and the peasant, for the first time in a thousand years, was permitted to inherit, bequeath, or just depart his land.27 It would be centuries before the old ratios returned. By then, agrarian innovation was dead in the east, but thriving in the west and north."

"As a young man growing up in New York City in the late 1940s, hustling was not only his means of survival, it became his way of life. By the 1950s, Max knew a lot of the right people, and he parlayed those connections into an entry-level job at a public relations firm. Technically, Max was nothing more than a gofer, driving clients to and from important engagements and taking care of other less-than-glamorous duties. But, hustler to the core, Max used his manipulative skills to con his employer's world-famous clientele into believing that he was a high-rolling publicist."

"But along with the growing anger came a change in its direction. For the ambition of the Blues and Greens—at least temporarily self-named the "Green-blues" or prasino-venetoi?had by now swollen well beyond a simple demand for mercy. Feeling their power, the leaders of the revolt demanded the dismissal of Eu-daemon; of the Quaestor, a legal historian named Tribonian; and of John of Cappadocia, currently serving as Praetorian Prefect."

"He felt a growing, compulsive desire to put a stop to the strange pain inside his head, one of the most agonizing and difficult-to-describe adverse effects of the newer antidepressants like Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, and Celexa. Harry began to think that his wife would also be better off dying, because "it wasn't right" to leave her behind to feel guilty and to suffer. Killing her and then killing himself was the morally correct thing to do. But the idea of harming her became so intolerable that he focused instead on destroying himself. These impulses came out of the blue."

"The only stress in their lives was Henry's growing irritability and insensitivity. He bragged much too much about his newfound wealth, spent too much on foolish things, and seemed to have lost much of his genuine feeling for his family. Everything changed overnight. Henry came home from work to announce that he was in trouble, not serious trouble from his viewpoint, but trouble enough. He'd been caught embezzling funds at work. "How much?" his dismayed and shaken wife wanted to know. Well, he really couldn't be sure, but it was a lot."

"Neither has the inherent danger of exposing the growing brain to toxic substances."10 The FDA should have come out with an unqualified warning not to prescribe the newer antidepressants to children. It could have required the labels to announce, "Contraindicated in Children and Youth"—meaning, never to be prescribed to children and youth. Although it did not dare go this far, what it did do exceeded expectations and shocked many drug advocates."

"We cannot with impunity bathe the growing brains of our children in toxic substances. Remember again that the adverse effects of psychiatric drugs occur along a continuum from barely perceptible to severe and overwhelming. Severe drug toxicity and spellbinding represent the extreme end of a continuum of mental impairment that is sufficiently subtle to go unrecognized even as it adversely affects the life of anyone who takes psychiatric drugs."

"It is gaining growing recognition in fighting age-related diseases ranging from dementia to diabetes. On a live-food diet properly eaten, we actually eat 50 percent fewer calories as compared to a Standard American Diet (SAD), but maintain a very high level of nutrition. The reason for this is that we are consuming nutrient-dense foods, not just calorie-dense foods such as those offered in restaurants and fast-food dispensaries all over the Westernized world. We are becoming nations of overfed, undernourished individuals."

"It is the only major disease in the city that is growing. The percentage of diabetics in New York City is about a third higher than the rest of the nation and cases have been increasing about twice as fast as nationally. In the past ten years, New York City has seen a 140 percent increase in diabetes. The proportion of diabetics is higher than that of Los Angeles, Chicago, or Boston. In New York, the diabetic rate is highest where there are ethnic groups with high genetic tendencies. i i-1-1? 1994- 1996- 1998- 2000- 2002 1995 1997 1999 2001 Sources: NYC Dept."

"FINAL THOUGHTS Jordan Rubin took many of the most respected and long-used sources of glycoproteins and combined them, rendering them exceedingly potent by insisting on proper growing mediums and utilizing fermentation. He unlocked their healing powers, which, in turn, enhanced the healing response of his maternal grandmother, Rose Menlowe, and of many others. Today, doctors know that you can alter your cancer risk at any age. Cancer is not something we are born with and predestined to be stricken with; rather, it is often avoidable. 12 Zyflamend Zyflamend?"

"The technique of fermenting sugar, releasing energy that can be used for living and growing, and leaving behind a less-energy rich acid, has proved popular among bacteria to this day; the lactic acid that turns milk sour is the residue of bacteria that gorged on the milk sugat called lactose; so is the alcohol that bacteria leave after eating the fructose in grapes. However, the sugars available from inorganic carbon molecules are a use-it-and-lose-it resource, one that declines precipitously wherever it is used for food."

"In 2000, I testified as an expert witness for the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). The growing body of evidence for the effectiveness of mind-body medicine had finally pushed it into the medical mainstream. Over three decades of clinical work, I have demonstrated that the power of the human mind is infinite, that every person possesses extraordinary nobility, and that life is a series of lessons designed to lead us into the direct experience of these two realities. These are tall claims to be sure, but the methods speak for themselves."

"LACTOBACILLUS BULGARICUS ž"Lactobacillus bulgaricus does not colonize in the intestinal tract, is fast growing, and produces lactic acid; it thus promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria that establish a balanced gastrointestinal tract environment. It contributes to digestion, lactose tolerance, the reduction of cholesterol, and the control of intestinal infections and it also enhances immunity."5 žBeneficial L."

"Lyme disease is considered one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the United States. The first symptom of this condition is generally the appearance of a rash and a red papule on the skin a few days following a tick bite. Acute (early) reactions can include flulike symptoms, including fever, fatigue, malaise, a stiff neck, backache, headache, joint pain and swelling, sinus infection, heart palpitations, nausea and vomiting. Chronic (late) symptoms may include muscle twitching, seizures, panic attacks, depression, hallucinations, and adrenal disorders."

"He also noted that the placenta stops growing on day fifty-six of the human pregnancy, which interestingly is the same day the fetus's pancreas begins to function. He came to the conclusion that the fetus's pancreas secreted something that stopped the growth of the placenta and hypothesized that the same substance might stop the growth of malignant cancer. Beard conducted experiments with juices extracted from young animal pancreases to test his theory. The juices were injected into cancer tumors and the tumors shrank in both animals and humans."

"Of course, while the need to know more is strong and growing stronger, it's important to recognize that there's still a great deal to learn. Case in point: Over the past 10 years, scientists have identified hundreds of biologically active plant-food components called phytochemicals (also called phyto-nutrients)."

"Although many people still pay more attention to their LDL levels when they get a blood lipid test, there's growing evidence that HDL is just as important a factor in the development of heart disease. "Boosting HDL is the next frontier in heart disease prevention," says R K. Shah, MD, director of cardiology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Shah believes that if the new drugs that increase levels of HDL work, we could potent ally reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes by 80 to 90 percent and save millions of lives."
