Mercury is a known neurotoxin and immunotoxin. It crosses the placenta and prenatal exposure at low levels can lead to developmental delays. Based on reports from FDA, EPA and The Environmental Working Group, the following guidelines should be considered:
In addition to their content of potentially toxic phthalates, plastics are also a major source of Bisphenol A. This compound has been reported to be associated with disorders of reproductive health, some cancers, heart disease, other endocrine problems and neurotoxicity in children-especially behavioral problems such as anxiety, depression and hyperactivity.
Although there are no definitive conclusions, there have been many studies showing effects of EMF’s on immune function, neurologic function, and the blood brain barrier. Some researchers have raised the possibility that the dramatic increase in neuroimmune conditions such as Autism and PANDAS may be due in part to the significant increase in the EMF fields world wide over the past few decades.
Advances in medical science and public health have steadily prolonged life expectancy in most of the developed world, but the prospect of an exploding population of elderly people has brought with it a host of new challenges. None of these is more formidable than the looming epidemic of Alzheimer’s. The personal, economic and social costs could be staggering, and governments and healthcare specialists are struggling to fashion a response.
Inflammation that persists means that something is wrong, and whereas acute inflammation is an integral part of healing, chronic inflammation can cause real and lasting damage. When we think of chronic inflammation, we naturally think of conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel disease (colitis), and Lupus
I have termed the new childhood epidemics “The 4-A Disorders”, and they include autism, ADHD, asthma and allergies. Over the past quarter of a century, autism has increased a staggering 1500%, while ADHD, asthma and allergies have also skyrocketed. I find these meteoric increases staggering, and they beg the question: Why?
Allergies are adverse immune reactions to every day substances that most people can tolerate. "Allergens", as they're called, can include inhalants such as pollens (e.g., ragweed), dust, cat hair or mold, Allergens also are found in foods including wheat, peanut or egg. These two types of allergens-food and inhalant-can join forces to increase your suffering.
