"Despite a widespread recognition of this greater cancer risk to children, common cosmetics and personal care products, even those aimed at children, still contain toxic ingredients.

Needleman and Landrigan, as "One of the Ten Best Parenting Books of the Year."

"Also, "The prevalence of asthma (in the U.S.) has been increasing since the early 1980s for all age, sex, and racial groups," reports the National Institutes of Health's Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and that jump in the incidence of asthma coincides with the immense surge of fragrances being added to consumer products in the 1970s and '80s.

"Bailey claimed that "[tjhese campaigns often do a great disservice to consumers by using inflammatory and alarmist rhetoric to create scientifically unsubstantiated health scares."

"Long before a child starts school, some parents notice that the child loses interest in the middle of playing a game or watching TV, runs around completely out of control, or acts without thinking, often at personal risk or risk to other children around him or her. Children mature at different rates and vary widely in personality, temperament, and energy levels, so these signs are clues that something might be wrong, but they are not conclusive proof of ADD/ADHD."

They are endocrine disrupting and medical literature suggests they may be linked to some reproductive defects in the male fetus. As many personal care products are targeted to teenage girls in puberty and women of childbearing years, phthalates are gaining attention as a possible cancer-causing chemical that should be avoided. • Pesticides have been reviewed by European and North American studies and are linked with an increased rate of leukemia in children."

Martin's widow sued the manufacturer of Halcion and the doctor who prescribed it to her husband.

"Not sutprisingly, the two were eager to legitimize their telationship, but in order to do so, they had to surmount two obstacles, one legal, and the other personal. In fact, Justinian's first legislative achievement was supervising the draft of a law that not merely permitted a "penitent actress [to] apply for an imperial grant of marriage" but, in the case of a person raised to patrician status, eradicated ex post facto any "othet blemish.

In Gibbon's elegant and accurate phrasing, "The dislike expressed by Diocletian towards Rome and Roman freedom • Though, to be sure, the transformation started before Diocletian, and continued after him."

"All psychoactive drugs share this combined capacity to hide their adverse effects from the individual while also masking or burying the individual's awareness of personal problems, including nagging responsibilities and painful emotional conflicts. The individual's overall capacity for self-observation or self-awareness is impaired. This is well illustrated by the familiar figure of the individual intoxicated with alcohol who fails to perceive the degree of his intoxication while simultaneously "forgetting about his troubles."

"The truth is, frozen veggies come in handy year-round, but I especially rely on them during the months when it's slim pickings in the produce section. My personal Picks Let's face it-certain vegetables manage the stress of being frozen and then heated and eaten better than others. Take peas. I'm not a "pea" person (my mom forced me to eat them, and I think I will be forever influenced by this dinner trauma), but even I have them around to toss in soups, fried rice, and casseroles."

"Not his personal fate, but the fate of mankind, of life as a whole, the atom and all the solar systems, has been opened to him; and this in terms befitting his human understanding, that is to say, in terms of an anthropomorphic vision: the Cosmic Man. An identical initiation might have been effected by means of the equally valid image of the Cosmic Horse, the Cosmic Eagle, the Cosmic Tree, or the Cosmic 30Bhagavad Gita, 11; 1:45-46; 2:9.

"Diamond has shown through his personal life and his writings that one of the most effective ways to support optimal health and overcome disease is to eat raw food. In his latest book, Living Without Pain, he shows how enzymes play a crucial role in overcoming some of the most common diseases that cause debilitating pain. DICQIE FULLER, PHD Dr. Fuller's interest in holistic health began over twenty years ago when her daughter became ill and was given only a short time to live. She discovered her daughter's illness was a result of her inability to properly digest, utilize, and eliminate food."

"Theodoric's kingdom was, in retrospect, an unstable mixture of Gothic Arianism and Italian orthodoxy, held to-gethet by Theodotic's enormous personal magnetism. But its coherence is also a vivid illustration of the still-powerful centripetal attraction that Roman civilization still exhibited against the forces pulling that civilization apart. Like Ricimer, Theodoric maintained a healthy respect, not to say awe, for all things Roman, famously writing, "We delight to live after the law of the Romans ..."

"Between Belisarius's personal retainers, and the Herulians who had likewise accompanied their commander, Mundus, just recalled from the Danube, approximately fifteen hundred soldiers were available for the defense of the throne. Those soldiers had been involved in small skirmishes with rioters for several days before the emperor, braced by his wife's courage, was ready to use them decisively. The following day, Monday,* was, indeed, the day of decision."

"We insist on some recognition of our messy, personal tragedies. Some time ago, my wife's mother, Evelyn, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She'd been living alone since her husband died of emphysema a few years before. She had nursed him through the last years of his life. As his lung disease got worse, his life closed in around him."

"FROM A personal COMMUNICATION WITH DR. GARRY GORDON In August 2006, the American Chemical Society published research that showed conclusively that methylmercury induces pancreatic cell apoptosis and dysfunction.59 Mercury is a well-known toxic agent that produces various types of cell and tissue damage, yet billions of people are exposed to levels of mercury harmful to pancreatic health. In the case of diabetes mercury is especially telling, for it affects the beta cells, the insulin itself, and the insulin receptor sites, setting off a myriad of complex disturbances in glucose metabolism."

"Inside were a deck of playing cards embossed with the Ambien brand name, a compact disc with soothing music, and a card to send away for a free Ambien sleep mask, as long as one also provided the drug company with her name, address, and a description of her personal sleep problems. The All About Ambien brochure inside the kit boasted that the company's pill was "the #1 prescribed sleep aid in the U.S." In the end, Ms. Hillmer never actually spoke the word "Ambien," but I can't say that mattered."

"MP3 players by providing their personal data and watching promotional cartoons, like one in which Chaz, the cool tenth grader, reveals to his gang that he takes Saizen. The companies used the data they collected to become closer to the person or, as one marketer described, to be like a dinner "date" by "striking up conversation, piquing their interest, and leaving them wanting for more." For example, the drug company Roche created a program for overweight patients who were prescribed Xenical, its weight loss drug."

"Much of this control is achieved through personal experience in addition to food tables of carbohydrate amounts and glycemic indices. C. Fat Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of mortality for people with diabetes [13]. Patients with type 2 diabetes have an increased prevalence of lipid abnormalities, which contribute to higher rates of CVD. Because diabetes is associated with a marked increase in coronary artery disease, there is a strong focus on dietary fatty acid intake. Target lipid concentrations are shown in Table 1."
