STINK! Chemical Toxicity Video free online through Monday, October 31

The video is no longer available for free. Go to the homepage to find out other options for viewing.

The movie the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see!

STINK! opens with a foul smell and a pair of kids pajamas. And a single father trying to find out what that smell could possibly be. But instead of getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on an even bigger issue in America, which is that some products on our store shelves are not safe — by design.

Helping the Unusually Sensitive Patient to Heal

Today, I am delighted to bring back to our program, my friend and colleague, Dr. Wayne Anderson. We are putting on a symposium later this month on the subject of diagnosing and treating the extremely sensitive patient. We are seeing more and more patients who cannot tolerate the typical doses of medications, supplements, and even homeopathics. This broadcast will be devoted to understand how this happens and how we can help those patients to heal.

Today my guest, Dr. Eric Gordon of Gordon Medical Associates, will be discussing environmental toxicity. We will be joined by Christopher Shade, who is an expert on mercury metabolism, diagnosis and treatment and the founder of Quicksilver Scientific.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: A Short Introduction

The Chemical Sensitivity Foundation

The Chemical Sensitivity Foundation is one of the many resources we have listed for in our Resource Pages for people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. The primary goal of the Chemical Sensitivity Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, is to raise public awareness about multiple chemical sensitivity. To this end, we are now enabling visitors to the site to play a short documentary produced/directed by Alison Johnson that is titled Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: A Short Introduction. This DVD includes footage of Dr. L. Christine Oliver, an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at Harvard Medical School, CSF chair Alison Johnson, and Dr. Anne Steinemann, who speaks about her important prevalence studies and her recent study on the toxic ingredients in common fragranced products. The film also includes several MCS patients, among them veterans of the 1991 Gulf War and First Responders and others exposed to the World Trade Center toxins.

Tip #14 For Living More Toxin Free

 

From Seventh Generation

On this last tip, again, it is equally as important for many chronically ill patients. In addition to trapping allergens, carpet off gasses a wide variety of toxic chemicals, as will most carpet pads and any glue used to hold the carpet down. Some carpets take years to outgas. If you have a carpet that you are unable to remove, remember Tip #1. Open all your windows at least once a week to let your air be refreshed and cleaned. Maybe go with Tip #9, and get a plant or two for the room. If you do remove the carpet, you can still put natural fiber area rugs down, that can be taken out and cleaned regularly.

We hope this series of tips was helpful!

Tip #13 For Living More Toxin Free

 

From Seventh Generation

Again, this is not just for children! Adults who are chronically ill also need to be aware that mattresses can be made from or treated with many toxic compounds, in addition to those used to make them fireproof. Some companies can provide a mattress that has not had fireproofing added if you provide a doctors prescription. Don’t forget to add a dust mite proof cover to help keep your mattress and pillows low allergen as well.
