    We are being bombared with neurotoxins in the environment

    During the 20th century, deliberately allowed environmental chemicals affect human health, reproduction, intelligence and social behavior, yielding social conditions involving learning disabilities, crime and other devolutionary phenomena, allowing specific social factions to control the consciousness of the general population, maintain conflict and prevent planetary evolution while reaping windfall profits from chemically aided neurophysiological degeneration. This must change now. Time to GoOFF.

    QUICK LEARNING GUIDE

    Neurotoxicity: Adverse effects on the structure or function of the central and/or peripheral nervous system caused by exposure to a toxic chemical. Symptoms of neurotoxicity include muscle weakness, loss of sensation and motor control, tremors, cognitive alterations and autonomic nervous system dysfunction.

    Developmental Toxicity: Adverse effects on the developing child which result from exposure to toxic chemicals or other toxic substances. Adverse effects can include birth defects, low birth weight, and functional or behavioral weaknesses that show up as the child develops.

    Endocrine Toxicity: Any adverse structural and/or functional changes to the endocrine system (the system that controls hormones in the body) which may result from exposure to chemicals. Endocrine toxicity can harm human and animal reproduction and development.

    Immunotoxicity: Adverse effects on the normal functioning of the immune system, caused by exposure to a toxic chemical. Changes in immune function could produce higher rates of infectious diseases or cancer, or more severe cases of those diseases. Immunotoxic chemicals can also cause auto-immune disease or allergic reactions.

    Reproductive Toxicity: Adverse effects on the male and/or female reproductive systems caused by exposure to a toxic chemical. Reproductive toxicity may be expressed as alterations in sexual behavior, decreases in fertility or fetal loss during pregnancy. Some official definitions of reproductive toxicity, for example in California's Proposition 65, include developmental toxicity as part of reproductive toxicity.

    Musculoskeletal Toxicity: Adverse effects to the structure and/or function of the muscles, bones and joints caused by exposure to a toxic chemical. Exposures to coal dust and cadmium, for example, have been shown to cause adverse changes to the musculoskeletal system. Examples of musculoskeletal diseases which can be caused by exposure to toxic chemicals include the bone disorders arthritis, fluorosis, and osteomalacia.

    Cardiovascular Toxicity: The adverse effects on the heart or blood systems which result from exposure to toxic chemicals.

    The Problem
    The U.S. is in a secret war, the likes of which have never before been witnessed on this planet. This war is much greater than World Wars I & II. It is World War III. The cost is into the billions of dollars of lost productivity, lost manpower - irreplaceable skills and abilities. There are trillions of dollars paid to the medical industry alone.

    The Battlefield

    Where is the battlefield? Sad to say, it is the American home.

    In a five-year study authorized and funded by a congressional subcommittee, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that some American houses were 70 times more toxic than outdoor air pollution! The EPA also found that toxic chemicals in the home are approximately three times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution. When we spend time breathing indoor air that is highly toxic right in our own homes, we compromise our immune system. A compromised immune system allows us to encounter all manner of ailments from allergies and asthma to cancer and death.

    If you compromise your immune system by not getting sufficient sleep, the results can be an acid condition which makes it possible for you to catch a cold or get the flu. Rest, and your immune system recovers back to alkaline, and your cold is gone. However, permanent immune compromise, such as that which results from continuous exposure to toxicity, leaves you open to all manner of diseases including cancer.

    According to an article in the State Farm Insurance publication, part of the major health problems for people today is that we have finally learned how to build air-tight houses, which in turn cause stale and unhealthful air. One of their studies revealed that burnt toast Monday morning could still be smelled on Wednesday.

    Most authorities agree that household cleaning supplies are contributing to more home toxicity than other products used in the home. Still, all toxic products contribute to our homes' high level of toxicity.

    Air fresheners and most disinfectants have a chemical, phenol, which deadens nerve endings so you can’t smell. The phenol causes cancer and death. Yet phenol is not required to be listed as part of the contents. They may also contain cresol, ethanol, formaldehyde, ammonia and chlorine. Some contain as much as 50 percent formaldehyde in their ingredients. There are no government agencies to monitor products sold to the public for home consumption and very little regulation.

    In analyzing 2,983 chemicals used in personal care products, the following shocking statistics were uncovered:


    884 were toxic
    778 can cause acute toxicity
    376 can cause skin & eye irritations
    314 can cause biological mutation
    218 can cause reproductive complications
    146 can cause tumors

    [National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health, 1989]

    According to an EPA report to Congress on Indoor Air and the subcommittee hearings on the Indoor Air Quality Act of 1989, most homes have airborne concentrations of hazardous chemicals that are two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. An EPA report of 1985 concluded that toxic chemicals in household cleaners are three times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution.

    Likewise, the Consumer Product Safety Commission concluded in its research that 150 chemicals commonly found in our homes are connected to allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological disorders.

    The state of Massachusetts did a research study on the population of Massachusetts and found that 51 percent of all illness is due to indoor air quality. There are many independent studies which all give the same results. This is awesome!

    I agree completely! I worked in a old bldg full of MOLD, we had mice, a leaking roof with holes in our cieling going into the attic. I worked there 2 years. I can down with CF AFTER working there along with Chronic Sinusitis. I know the mold has something to do with this.
    Unfortunately, quitting my job hasn't helped my health too much. I also use an ALPINE air cleaner in my house along wiht a dehumidifier. This has made a great difference.
    BTW..if your house is CLEAN you don't need airfresheners!

    Thanks for the read...

    New research has shown....that although acute sinutitis is more often bacterial. Chronic Sinutitis (lasting over 3 months) can be attributed to fungal growth in the nasal passage, and the allergic reaction it sets up. That's why antibiotic therapy in chronic cases, seldom yields result. May not find a doc of the old school that holds this philosophy, but many who research, or are newly graduated do.
