RE: BBB MEDICATION M/W ISSUE AND
"DANGEROUS DRUGS OR DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT
Part Three of Douglas Fischer's "The Body Chemical"
(access info below) is very interesting and provides insight into some of the
thinking re various exposures. Not surprisingly, EMF/EMR concerns
are not addressed.
In the last paragraph, Dr. Wigle, the Health Canada
epidemiologist, is quoted as saying: "We should
not be arrogant or ignorant. Arrogant in the sense that we think we
know a lot about the significance of these contaminants, or ignorant in not
admitting what we don't know...."
I have no information as to how much Dr. Wigle might know
that he, like so many others, isn't "openly sharing" -- I have no
facts as to whether Dr. Wigle is aware that EMF/EMR interactions and
reactions are "well-known" amongst the scientific community but I
believe he most likely did or does now (the article is not dated and I
wasn't able to copy and paste.....last update was 3-18-2005.....).......
Dr. Sheila Zahn, deputy director of the National Cancer
Institute' division of cancer epidemiology and genetics is quoted as
saying: "We're all confident environmental exposures of
some sort do cause cancer.......but it's very difficult at these very low
levels to know what is going on......we don't have good
I often refer to the information that was sent to me back in
1993 by the local office of the American Cancer Society. One of the most
important items is a "USA Today" article recommending moving
appliances away from beds. That item contained a file number with
the letters RAD!!!
There are many important comments in Part 3 of "The Body
Chemical." Too much to quote at this time. One of the
items is: "....we have metals, nicotine and benzene in our
blood. Phthalates, used to make our plastics soft and dissolve fragrances
in our shampoos and lotions, filter through our kidneys........"
The above statement re plasticizers is serious enough when
considering that exposure alone. But, I recently wrote about a
couple in our adjacent suburb (Blaine, Minnesota) who were both diagnosed in
the past three years with Alzheimers. Their daughter said they bought the
new Select Comfort 5000 bed with "heated mattress pad" three years
ago....... This is potentially a "4-part toxic
combo" -- the chemicals that already are present in one's body -- the
resins in the mattress -- the electric currents and magnetic field emanating
from the mattress pad -- reactions to medications -- and the added
"probable adverse effect" from sleeping on top of an unnatural heat
source (quasi thermal effect ?).
Dr. David Savitz, a professor at the University of North
Carolina and president of the Society for Pediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology,
states: "If you can't measure it, it's a non-detect and you're not
worried.......there's a ittle bit of danger, if you will of the information itself.
You could argue that by being aware of it, what could it do, other than help
people to worry? Or would you make a different
I shouldn't type in all caps (representing shouting) and I must
respect all readers therefor, I will not swear BUT, I can assure everyone
reading this that you will relate to my feelings when you read just one of the
items I am including as a reference here re involvement by Dr. Savitz regarding
EMF issues: http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/154/10/977
While I understand Dr. Savitz is specifically addressing the
issue of "body chemicals," exactly who is Dr. Savitz trying to
impress with the "flippant question" of whether one would make a
I have a lot to say regarding the Oxford Journal article re Dr.
Savitz but need to focus at this time on "The Body
Chemical." I will, however, add that whether chemicals
are natural, inhaled, absorbed, ingested, and/or "induced by
EMF/EMR reactions/interactions," melatonin supplementation will most
likely help everyone improve their quality-of-life. Dr. Russel Reiter has
eloquently presented the benefits of this powerful cancer-fighting and
anti-aging antioxidant in his book, "Melatonin" as well as numerous
"The people aren't ignorant", Dr. Wigle. "The
people" challenge you to care enough about them to "inform" and
to not be influenced by the dishonesty and greed that permeate
society!!! Best wishes to all for a "better

Not all make it to our bodies. But some will. Not all prove
poisonous. But some do. We have metals, nicotine and benzene in our
