"Finally, night sweats can be an early warning sign of a rare, slow-developing blood disorder, polycythemia vera (PV), a condition in which a person's bone marrow pro- SPEAKING OF SIGNS The more you sweat in peacetime, the less you bleed during war. —Chinese proverb duces excess blood cells, especially red blood cells. Known by many other names, including primary polycythemia, myeloproliferative disorder, Vasquez's disease, and Osier's disease, it primarily affects people around the age of 60 and strikes more men than women."

"The latest research in the war on warts shows that the drug cimetidine (Tagamet), widely used to treat ulcers, is also effective against warts. In one study, almost 70 percent of subjects who took cimetidine for twelve weeks found their warts disappeared for at least a year, and the warts were reduced by 50 percent in another 17 percent. Resesarchers say that the drug appears to fight human papillomaviruses, the class of viruses that causes warts. No adverse side effects were reported. ¦ Genital warts may be treated with applications of pod-ophyllin (Podocon-25)."

"SIGN OF THE TIMES While covering the war in Iraq in 2003, NBC News correspondent David Bloom, 39, died from a pulmonary embolism caused by a clot that formed in his leg (DVT), then broke off and entered his lungs. Bloom had complained of leg cramps while riding for long hours in the narrow confines of a converted army tank. Also at high risk for developing these clots are people with broken legs, those undergoing surgery (especially orthopedic, pelvic, or abdominal operations), and cancer patients. And if you've had one episode of DVT, you're at increased risk of having another."

"If we could figure out the things that make immune systems do their job of keeping things in balance, we would have a completely new set of tools to fight cancer, not just the traditional poisons that came out of toxic war gases. We needed to turn around the way we looked at things. We needed to understand what fueled cancer and what would lead to its natural destruction within the body. We basically needed an entirely new paradigm—not one based on cutting, burning or poisoning." Tuckfelt remembers his impatience with the incremental, puzzle-solving approach of normal science. "

"My involvement with the cancer society brought me into contact with a small group of active people—someone called them "benevolent plotters"7—who set out during and after World war II to revolutionize American medical education, research, and health care . . . All of them [Albert and Mary Lasker, Michael DeBakey, Alton Ochsner, and others] did not agree all of the time, but all were united in one purpose: to stimulate federal support of medical research and education. Boosters of the search for drugs to treat cancer were nothing if not supremely confident."

"At the beginning of the Second World war, German scientists developed a radar system based on technically generated microwaves. During the extremely cold wintertime, soldiers gathered around the radar screens to get warm, but they developed blood cancers. Subsequently, the German army abandoned the use of radar. However, after German scientists learned that microwaves heated human tissue they thought these waves could also heat food, and so they invented the microwave oven with the intention to provide German soldiers with warm meals during the battles against the Soviet Union."

"As the war effort grew and even after it ended, the nation remained on alert, fixated on immediate threats—real or imagined. Morgenstern told me years later that he puzzled about the lingering residues of something that could cause deep disturbance in the lung at levels that could not be measured then. These were not questions others were willing to pose. The symptoms Morgenstern was seeing would later become familiar to cancer doctors. As an apt Chinese proverb advises, if you don't want to know, don't ask."

"Indeed, I think it's very possible that a whole host of neo-conservatives will begin to look favorably upon environmen-talism—as described in this book—as a means of winning the war on terror. Half the Republican Party is strongly proenvi-ronment, and so are most Democrats, even if a lot of them are really only once-over light."

"After the Second World war, the need couldn't be met by this old technology. Plastics, including polyvinyl chloride, demanded so much benzene as a precursor chemical that another technology was required to produce it. Today, most benzene is reformulated by cooking petroleum hydrocarbons with hydrogen gas under pressure. Between 1919 and 1940, at least thirty-three publications advised replacing benzene with safer solvents. Many were issued by the National Safety Council and Dr. Hamilton."

"Remember, MSG went into heavy use following World war II. It wasn't removed from baby foods until 1969, and even then, babies, infants and children experienced heavy exposure to MSG thanks to the use of other ingredients that contain MSG but aren't called "monosodium glutamate." So unless you were born before World war II, chances are that your childhood involved at least some exposure to MSG. But how was this MSG / obesity link established in the first place? It happened in 1968, as described below."

"While the sodium nitrate deposits were extensive, the industrialists argued that in time of war Chile could be blockaded, and also that large quantities of Chilean nitrate would be diverted to explosives manufacture. This meant that it could not be a dependable source of agricultural nitrogen for the exponential expansion of the world population that English economist Thomas Malthus had predicted back in 1798.

"Imagine massive regional wildfires in Arizona, Southern California, and New Mexico, with annual massive flooding in Utah and the Midwest, and landslides throughout coastal California—all regular events—ever more intense, the nation in a state of constant environmental crisis caused by natural disasters within and at war without, due to our excessive reliance on fossil fuels. Such North American-based disasters are bad enough."

"In the living room in front of the Stickley hardwood entertainment center where the big television monitor looms like some surreal Orwellian messenger of war and violence, Chinese-manufactured petrochemical toys abound. They are in boxes, on the fireplace, by the TV, on the couch, on the beat-up coffee table where the children draw. I tell the kids they have more toys than Princes William and Harry when they are children—and they were royalty and all we are is petrochemical-sucking middle-class America."

"I did not feel any paranoia, like in the past when I was in Guatemala in the 1980s and I never knew if rebels were going to stop our bus, hold us at gunpoint and demand a war tax, delay, kidnap, or kill us. I did not even see any police. From high atop a bridge, I took pictures of the river below. I bought some gum and went back to the cattle car. I looked out at the moistened leaves and trees of the forest surrounding the tiny town. Lewis put his hand on my shoulder and said, "A cure for every disease could be here. Arthritis, cancer, heart disease, and even diabetes—the cure is here."

"In the early years of World war II, it combated mosquitoes spreading malaria, typhus, and other insect-borne human diseases among both military and civilian populations. The Swiss chemist Paul Hermann Miiller of Geigy Pharmaceutical (now Ciba-Geigy) was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1948 "for his discovery of the high efficiency of DDT as a contact poison against several arthropods." After the war, DDT's production skyrocketed as it made its way into the agricultural world, where it was used as a potent insecticide."

"By 1944, the ground war and the Allied bombing of German cities and industry allowed Russian, American, and British troops to win major battles and overrun industrial facilities. With each victory more I. G. Farben chemical secrets and industrial processes became available to the military forces and the chemical corporations in France, England, and America."

"About two years ago, a fifty-five-year-old veteran of the Vietnam war came to my office seeking help with his symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a problem that affects a large number of war veterans involving the subconscious and conscious repetition of trauma and a heightened vulnerability to stress of any kind. Decorated for valor in the military, this man embarked on a successful career as vice president of a major electronics firm after the war, fell in love, married, and started a family, but the symptoms of PTSD haunted him throughout."

"This is a war that's come right home. If we can't win the battles in our own communities, then we will never win in Washington," he said. Larry and I hoped such actions would not be necessary, and we wouldn't encourage it, but we also didn't want to discourage people's ideas as long as no one got hurt. When Francis told them about Finn, Radkin suggested getting a motion sensor for the barn. I just prayed nothing would happen to our newborn lambs."

"As a result of Thomas Jefferson's Embargo Act of 1807, the shipping battles between Britain and France, and the war of 1812, the United States lost much of its international trading business and was forced to rely on its own resources for the supply of wool products. From 1809 to 1810 William Jarvis, the U.S. consul to Portugal and a native Vermonter, imported into his home state the first Merino sheep from Spain and Portugal. Merinos are an exceptional wool breed, and by 1837 Vermont had more than one million sheep grazing its hills."

"Once the Second World war was over, the rendering industry's focus shifted to further industrialization of rendering slaughterhouse waste, specifically using protein by-products from the animal-rendering industry in animal feed to improve growth rates and productivity of livestock operations. University research showed that increased protein in an animal's diet resulted in greater productivity? dairy cows produced more milk and beef animals more muscle. Consequently, rendering companies created "meat and bonemeal" from the inedible remains of slaughtered animals, a product high in protein."

"The mechanism appears to be controlled by how the vagus nerve releases its main chemical, acetylcholine, and deactivates the king of white blood cells, macrophages, so our immune system isn't in a continual state of war. Here's one elegant way (besides putting an electronic stimulator around your vagus): a form of movement we discussed in the memory chapter, called chi-gong. This exercise combines meditation and movement to soothe the vagus. See how to do it in our YOU Toolbox on page 350."

"And I wondered whether her oncologist thought of death as the final defeat against which all-out war must be waged, even though there was no real hope of winning. Although the decision to go forward had already been made and the oncologist seemed to be calling more as a courtesy than for a real discussion, I still regret that in that rushed moment on the telephone I was so deferential. I feared that Ms. Fletcher and her oncologist were, each for her own reasons, grasping at straws, and I hoped I was wrong."
