bulletChemicals in our environment - A silent killer. Over 3000 new chemicals are introduced to our environment EACH YEAR. There is no guarantee that any of these chemicals or the 100,000's past chemicals being used are safe. In fact there is evidence to the contrary. The contents of this section are:
bulletBisphenol A (BPA), a chemical in many plastics, is a known estrogen mimicker, and can cause hormone-disrupting effects, toxicity, neurotoxicity, low sperm counts and even cancer. Some of these effects occur in concentrations as low as two parts per billion, and yet various studies have shown that plastic bottles or canned foods can often expose consumers to far higher concentrations (sometimes hundreds of times higher). This product is used in baby bottles among other places... (click here for more information)
bullet1/3 of the food tested in the UK contains pesticides - The Pesticide Residues Committee said that 1.7 percent of 3,787 food items tested in the U.K. exceeded the legal limits for pesticide content, and 30.2 percent contained traces within the legal limits. (Click here for more information.)

bulletSan Francisco will begin enforcing a ban on the sale, distribution and manufacture of baby products that contain any level of the toxic chemical bisphenol A or certain levels of phthalates. Both chemicals -- which are used to harden or soften plastic products -- can leach out of the plastic in baby toys and products every time an infant puts it in its mouth, causing possibly severe health problems. (Click here for more information.)
bulletDEA -- a chemical used as a wetting or thickening agent in shampoos, soaps, hairsprays and sunscreens -- seems to block absorption of the nutrient choline, which is essential to brain development. While pregnant, women require extra choline so that they may pass it on to the fetus. (Click here for more information.)
bulletorganophosphates are used extensively in agriculture to keep pests off fruit and vegetable crops, and have been the target of environmentalist campaigns saying they are hazardous to children's health.

bulletYour medicine cabinet is one of the most dangerous areas of your house, and not for the reasons you may think.

The growing list of synthetic ingredients manufacturers add to their products is turning the most innocent-looking shampoos and moisturizers into cocktails of toxins that could cause cancer or reproductive damage over years of sustained use. Modern cosmetics contain a host of dangerous ingredients, which would be more at home in a test tube than in our bodies. (Click here for more information.)
bulletHome Remedies - We thought we would include this page to provide a resource of things that your grandmother knew but we've lost along the generations. Here are lots of Home Remedies & tips you can do for different things.
bulletDrug Companies - We should be trying to stay healthy and avoid drugs. That is not what is happening. Almost half of all Americans are taking at least one prescription drug. How did that happen? Are we that sick? How does your doctor know what drugs to prescribe to you? How on earth has it become an fact of life that you will be taking a drug or two or three? The contents of this section are:
bulletSuddenly Sick - a series run in the Seattle Times about the influences drug companies have on establishing the guidelines for doctors in order to get them to prescribe drugs to you. You have to read this. Click here to get this pdf.
bulletThe Cholesterol Conspiracy - Most people that die from heart disease have normal cholesterol. Why are statin drugs a multi-billion dollar industry when what they "cure" is a symptom not the issue? What is the issue?
bulletSECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT ASPIRIN A DAY TO PREVENT HEART ATTACKS  A baby aspirin a day keeps a heart attack away. This widely accepted health practice was seriously undermined at an advisory committee meeting of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA, held in December 2003.) The FDA advisory committee voted overwhelmingly to reject a petition from the Bayer Corp. to approve aspirin for reducing the risk of a first heart attack.
bulletMedical Schools - Ever wonder how drugs and doctors became so inseparable? There is an interesting history of how this marriage occurred. It isn't what you think. Read this for a real eye opener involving John D. Rockefeller & Andrew Carnegie, a whole bunch of money, some drug companies, the American Medical Association, a lot of medical colleges, and a couple of brothers named Flexner.
bulletThe Conspiracy against Supplements - Supplements can keep you healthy. Why is there so much misinformation being put out that they are worthless or can kill you? Who is putting this information out? Guess...
bulletThe FDA and the Drug Companies - Who is regulating whom? Did you know the drug companies provide almost 50% of the funding for the FDA?
bulletCancer is Big Business - There are more people making a living off cancer than there are people with cancer. There is no medical cure for cancer but there are lots of things to spend money on to treat it. Many of the cures will kill you before the cancer does.
bulletDiabetes is Big Business - More than $150 billion dollars have been spent in the last ten years on diabetes. Less than 5% of that amount was spent on prevention. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness today and a raging epidemic. Money well spent? Is there another way to prevent or help diabetes? Diabetes is a degenerative disease caused by poor nutrition.
bulletHomocysteine levels can cause coronary artery disease & stroke - Studies show people with these diseases have high levels of homocysteine and low levels of folic acid, B12 and B6. If you take vitamin B supplements it will lower your homocysteine levels. There are no large profits in people taking B supplements. Next time you have an annual exam and a blood test, ask them to check your homocysteine levels. The lab tech will probably not know what you are talking about, yet there is clinical proof of a direct relationship between that level and coronary problems.
bulletThe Human Body is a miraculous thing with a powerful way of healing itself - if you take care of and feed it properly so your immune system can do what it is suppose to do
bulletThere is no such thing as a safe drug - all drugs have side effects. You should read those before you take a drug. Prescribing a drug for you should not be your doctor's first choice. Changing to a healthy lifestyle is a safer alternative than giving you a drug and very likely more effective. 
bulletInteresting marriage of companies - Pharmacia Corporation was created in April 2000 through the merger of Pharmacia & Upjohn with the Monsanto Company and its G.D. Searle unit. Pharmacia employs 59,000 people worldwide and has research, manufacturing and administrative sales operations in more than 60 countries. Can you imagine what that could mean to have a drug company linked to a chemical company that also in involved with genetic engineering?
