"For that, as toxic Childhood has shown, they need genuine human nurture, which must proceed at biological, not electric speed. Children need the security of a real human family, opportunities to experience and learn about the world at first hand, real friends and neighbours, and human values that will help them resist the siren calls of the market. For that to happen, we have to round up the remote controls and reinvent the 'off switch'. The electronic babysitter TV watching now begins not long after birth."

"The Europeans, in other words, look at the inherent toxic properties of a substance; the Americans look at how one might actually be exposed. Long explained the difference with a parable: "Imagine," he said, "you encounter a tiger in the wild, and then encounter another tiger behind its protective enclosure in a zoo." The wild tiger, he said, "is inherently dangerous." Get close enough, and it can kill you." Put that tiger behind bars in a zoo, however, and that tiger "is not dangerous at all." Chemicals, Long said, are the tigers in this equation. "

"As you will discover in greater detail in the following pages, the government that should be protecting us either has misplaced priorities, or has been asleep on the job. Chapter Two: The Chemical Threats to Your Health Before we talk about why most American consumers remain in the dark about the health threat posed by cosmetics and personal care products, we need to talk a little bit about what that threat is, and how we know it's a threat."

"They are the components of a time-release toxic debt-load for the multiplicity of cool and complicated electronic connections of modern life. Resetting the Periodic Table As I was writing this book, my printer, a five-year-old Epson 777 inkjet, died. Who knew the reason? Probably it was just age. I didn't bother to find out."

"But questioning the potentially toxic chemical properties of all those components they'd been working with was something that their training had never required. It was the end of the era in which what was contained in those products was of no consequence, compared to what they could do. Now someone in Brussels was telling them what to put in the machines they'd spent their careers inventing—or more precisely, what to take out of them. Kirschener's presentation was a wake-up call. The engineers took careful notes and fired off anxious questions: "What were the chances of getting a waiver?"

"Anyway, just as we can't know a child's genetic blueprint, so we can't guess which elements of contemporary culture might be particularly poisonous for each individual. toxic childhood is a syndrome, and we have to tackle the whole thing, not just odd symptoms. The good news is that doing so isn't particularly difficult, shouldn't cost much (except in time and attention) and parents who are already detoxing their children's lives find it extremely rewarding and enjoyable."
- Sue Palmer, Toxic Childhood: How the Modern World is Damaging Our Children and What We Can Do About it (Get the book.)

"Indeed, in many cases they're missing you already, and toxic childhood is the result. All the experts I've met and read on the subject of family welfare and social cohesion condemn the long-hours culture and commend flexible working practices. Families don't flourish unless their members spend time together, so it really is time that governments, businesses and individual human beings got their act together on this one - as the journalist Richard Reeves puts it, if our culture is to have a future we need to create family-friendly economies, not economy-friendly families."

"And the absurdity of the "protection" companies receive from trade secrecy laws comes into sharper focus when you realize that most product competitors have the technical expertise to back-engineer product ingredients created by their rivals ?which means that it is really only consumers who are being kept in the dark about the identity of product ingredients. A more subtle layer of public deception that shields dangerous chemicals from scrutiny is the result of the intimidation tactics sometimes used against experts who go public about health hazards."

"This petition was filed in conjunction with the release of a comprehensive report on the dangers of nano-cosmetics by Friends of the Earth. (17) • A British health agency issued a report in 2004 urging that nanoparticles be considered "new chemicals under European and U.K. legislation" (18). As such, they would be subject to safety testing by an independent safety committee before they could be used in cosmetics and other consumer products."

"Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Of thirty-three brands of lipstick they sent to an independent laboratory for analysis, 61 percent contained lead. Many lead levels were much higher than what the FDA allows for candy (0.1 parts per million) ?the only standard we can use to measure against, because the FDA has set no limits for lead in lipstick."

"The toxic Overload program involves taking a good multivitamin and mineral supplement, as well as magnesium, vitamin C, essential fatty oils, MSM-sulphur, probiotics, and fiber. While the daily detox supplement program provided in this chapter has been designed to suit the needs of the majority of people, the variability in lifestyle, diet, and genetic inheritance means that not everyone's needs are the same. As a result, some people may need higher levels of certain nutrients than others."

"However, if you are in a work situation where you are constantly being exposed to toxic fumes or if your home is located near a toxic waste dump, the chances that your environment is contributing to your condition of estrogen dominance is even greater. Environmental estrogen, or xenoestrogen (pronounced "ZEE-no-estrogen"), can be found in pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, fuels, car exhausts, dry cleaning chemicals, industrial waste, and meat from animals that have been fed estrogenic drugs to fatten them."

"Check your cosmetics for toxic ingredients and throw them away. Most health food stores now stock a variety of organic cosmetics and even natural hair dyes. Don't use fabric softeners. Exchange your perfumes and air fresheners for natural aromatic oils and fresh scents from your garden. Because most spermicidal products contain petrochemicals, avoid using lubricated condoms or vaginal gels. New homes or offices filled with new carpet, fiberboard, new paint, and glues can give off a wide variety of toxic fumes."

"CLEANSE AND FORTIFY PROGRAM Individuals who have very toxic bodies from years of poor food choices, heavy antibiotic use, or exposure to heavy environmental pollution, or who suspect heavy metal toxicity need to cleanse their entire digestive systems and recolo-nize them with healthy bacteria. Toxins, certain drugs, fungus, and chemicals in the body can interfere with the body's abilities to properly digest, absorb, and assimilate nutrients that are essential to sustaining life and health."

"Try to eat only when you feel hungry and as time progresses, pay attention to see if you can develop the ability to distinguish true hunger—felt in the throat—from the symptoms of toxic hunger. Remember, the symptoms of toxic hunger, which are caused by withdrawal, won't turn off until you have provided your body with adequate nutrients and your body has had time to build up a nutrient reserve in its tissues. This could take a few weeks to a few months, so be patient. Eating when hungry usually translates into a three meal-per-day format, without snacking."

"Naas' concern was that this shift in power could have long-term effects on America's global competitive edge. "Down the road," she said, "things are going to get tough for us."1' The Beauty Bluff yhe Fabrics and Home Care division for Procter & Gamble in I northern Europe is an island of calm on the northwest edge of Brussels. In 1958, this leafy five-acre parcel was home to the Belgian-hosted World's Fair, but since 1966 it has been an innovation and product-development center for the world's largest consumer-products company."

"The American Academy of Pediatrics therefore recommends that children under two shouldn't watch TV at all, but television is such a part of the furniture in twenty-first-century homes that this suggestion seems hopelessly unrealistic. Besides, there's also evidence that good educational TV can create a talking point between parent and child, and stimulate babies and toddlers to activity by copying the actions they see on screen. Once they're talking, the fun of television can interest children in words."

"Then, lower on the priority list might be balancing hormones, alkalinity issues, dealing with toxic teeth, or working on emotional or psycho-spiritual issues. Different people will list their priorities in different order from other people. Seeing the important issues prioritized and listed on paper can help to reduce some of the confusion that may arise when you think about what it is you need to do to "outsmart your cancer." As mentioned earlier, we can learn from all of the successful alternative approaches, and many of these can be combined effectively."

"Vitamin B6 is toxic to the nervous system when taken in supplements in doses above 1,000 milligrams. Levels of Vitamins and Minerals Desired in a Multivitamin Essential Supplements Total Daily Amount Vitamin A* (retinol or beta-carotene) 5,000-10,000 IU Vitamin C 60 mg Vitamin D 400-800 IU Vitamin E** 40-400 IU Thiamin 3-25 mg Riboflavin 1."

"I knew that the amount we had prescribed wasn't toxic, because thirty years ago, public health policy in the Netherlands had mandated that all newborns receive 2,000 IU of vitamin D (in cod liver oil) to prevent rickets, and there were no observations of any toxicity. How did Jennifer do? Her first-visit scores and notes looked like this: ?0.375-65-0-15-6 (function, pain, fatigue, health perception, sleep) ?90 minutes of stiffness in the morning At follow-up four months later, though, the changes looked like this: ?0.125-0-15-5-6 scores ?No stiffness ?Function improved by 67 percent ?"

"Vitamin A found in animal-derived foods is toxic only in prolonged excessive intake and can cause birth defects. If trying to conceive, do not exceed 3,000 meg retinol (10,000 IUs) or 3,000-30,000 meg beta-carotene per day. A good multivitamin and mineral will include the most important antioxidants: vitamins A, C, and E, coenzyme Q10, and the minerals selenium and zinc. Other antioxidants include the omega-3 oils and the "detoxing" amino acid known as glutathione (see pages 45-46)."

"These toxic compounds are a bigger problem in water supplies that come from surface water sources (such as reservoirs, lakes, and rivers) than they are from well-water sources. This is because the surface water sources tend to have more natural organic material (algae, leaves, and other plant materials) to which the chlorine can bind. The well water, or groundwater sources have much less organic material and therefore, when chlorinated, result in far fewer organochlorines than the surface water sources."
- Tanya Harter Pierce, Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work (Get the book.)

"These toxic chlorine byproducts are a more and more alarming problem to authorities. One type of organochlorine that has been heavily studied in recent years is a group of compounds called "tri-halomethanes." Epidemiological studies have shown that the number of years a person drinks water with certain levels of trihalomethanes directly correlates with an increased risk of bladder and rectal cancer. Yet, the first trihalomethane limits in public water were not set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) until 1979."

- Tanya Harter Pierce, Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work (Get the book.)

"This most toxic type of compound is a family of organochlorines called "dioxins." The chemical category called "dioxin" is the single most carcinogenic type ofmanmade chemical known to science. The EPA considers dioxin to be 300,000 times more potent as a carcinogen than DDT. No level of dioxin is considered safe! Most of the dioxin we are exposed to is released into our environment from the following three sources: 1. Industrial incinerators that burn chlorinated wastes 2. Industrial production of plastics 3. The paper production industry Modern living involves lots of paper."

"This is the official that helps you discriminate between what is beneficial and what is toxic, not only physically but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Because we live in an increasingly toxic world that pollutes our bodies, hearts, and minds, we are faced with mental confusion, emotional dysfunction, and depression. The small intestine then works overtime to sort out what feeds and nourishes us and what doesn't. The other two officials in the fire element are not actual organs in the body, though they serve functionally as organs."

"The antibiotic proved to be especially toxic in children, and eventually doctors began using other antibiotics to treat the deadly lung infection. These early reports of the deaths and disabilities caused by the miracle cures showed just how powerful this new technology could be. The new medicines could save lives, but they could also kill. The injuries that were coming to light showed how critical it was for doctors to give a medicine to patients only when its potential benefits outweighed the risks."

"ANTIBACTERIA AND FUNGI (MOLD): Celery contains polyacetylenes, substances highly toxic against fungi and bacteria. This compound also has anti-inflammatory effects and makes blood more slippery. Tips on Using Celery SELECTION AND STORAGE: • The leaves of the celery stalk should be bright green and not wilted. Gently squeeze the middle of the stalk. If you hear a squeaky sound, the celery is fresh. • Celeriac (celery root) comes in two varieties: a smaller knob version sold earlier in the fall and a larger knob version sold later. • Rinse celery and place in a plastic bag."

"Furthermore, high levels of fatty acids may suppress insulin secretion and their effect may be toxic to the [3 cells of the pancreas, becoming an important contributor to the pathogenesis of obesity-dependent type 2 diabetes [59]. Excess nonesterified fatty acid reduces hepatic insulin extraction, further increasing its serum concentration [159]. The prevalence of visceral fat measured by computer tomography correlated with endothelial dysfunction, independently of BMI, in otherwise healthy women who are obese [168]."
