  • Dioxins
    • The name of a group of persistent very toxic chemicals Dioxin is the nastiest, most toxic man-made organic chemical;
    • Dioxin's toxicity is second only to radioactive waste*
    • *ACE The Alliance for a Clean Environment
  • What are Dioxins?
    • 1. Dioxin is a powerful hormone-disrupting chemical. It exhibits serious health effects when it reaches as little as a few parts per trillion in your body fat. 2. There is NO "threshold" dose - the tiniest amount can cause damage, and our bodies have no defense against it. 3. Dioxin modifies the functioning and genetic mechanism of the cell by "attaching" to a protein in the cell, much like a key fitting into a lock. 4. Dioxin accumulates in the fat cells. It is not metabolized by humans. 5. Dioxin causes a wide range of effects:
      • a. Potent cancer causing agent b. Damages the immune system, leading to increased susceptibility to infectious disease c. Reproductive and developmental effects d. Miscarriages and birth deformity e. Nervous System Disorders
  • Where Do They Come From?
    • When chemicals and plastics are manufactured or burned, dioxin is produced as an unwanted (but INEVITABLE ) by-product.
    • According to EPA, much of the population of the U.S. is at the dose of dioxin at which there can be serious health effects.
    • The Greater Pottstown, Pa Area already has doubled leukemia compared to the state, and significantly elevated lung and cervical cancers, plus elevated infant mortality.
    • Directly exposed to the HAZARDOUS emissions from the #1 polluter in the county (Occidental Chemical), a massive industrial waste landfill (the Pottstown Landfill), and the Limerick Nuclear Power Plant.
  • Greater Pottstown Area - Cancer Incidence Rates
    • Leukemia - Nearly Double the Pennsylvania Rate
    • Lung Cancer - 22% to 33% higher than the Tri-County area
    • Cervical Cancer - 2 1/2 to 3 times higher than the Tri-County area
    • Greater Pottstown Area Children have cancer rates almost 100% higher than the remainder of the Tri County Area and PA, and 92.5 % higher than the national average.

    • Over 10 million preventable cancer deaths over the last 30 yrs. The Secret History of the War On Cancer
  • Web MD with AOL Health
    • Of the 200 chemical pollutants found in newborns umbilical cord there were 18 different forms of dioxin.
    • “ Rep Louise Slaughter (D-NY)anonymously donated her blood for contamination analysis, more than 270 toxic chemicals were found in her blood
  • The Reality
  • Industrial Chemicals In Your Environment Effect Your Biochemistry & Your Health
    • Perchlorate, a highly toxic chemical used in the manufacture of rocket fuel and linked to: thyroid disease, cancer and a host of other illnesses.
    • Perchlorate has already entered the drinking water of at least 35 U.S.states and is currently threatening the health of untold millions. Poisoned Nation 2007
  • The Wall Street Journal Monday December 16 2002
    • “ Blocking Agent in the human body Perchlorate (a chlorine chemical found in our drinking water) blocks the production of thyroid hormones essential to normal organ development in babies especially brain development”
  • A Child’s Brain Development
    • "The human being has an unusual brain development in that there is a prolonged period of maturation and neuroanatomical pathway development occurring years after birth.
    • The most rapid brain development occurs during the last trimester of intrauterine life and two years after birth – what is referred to as the brain growth spurt. It is the areas regulating higher brain functions, such as emotions, emotional control, thinking, complex memory and language function that is last to develop.
  • Children Are The Barometers Of Our Society
    • The youngest in society are most susceptible to the carcinogenic effects of pollutants.
    • Because the developing fetus, infant, and child are most susceptible to the harmful effects of pollutants, childhood cancer is often a key indicator of any potential hazards.
    • Nationwide, cancer is the #1 disease-related death in children.
  • Drinking Water In America NYTimes 2009
    • Samples of tap water from Maywood, Calif., where laboratory tests have shown toxic levels of chemicals in the city’s tap water. When residents asked for cleaner water, they were told the water satisfied the Safe Drinking Water Act.
    • The water system in Ramsey, N.J., has illegal concentrations of arsenic and the solvent tetrachloroethylene, both linked to cancer.
    • Dentists near Charleston, W. V. say pollutants in drinking water have damaged residents’ teeth.
    • In Piqua, Ohio, the city manager, Frederick Enderle, said he was unaware of spikes in atrazine.
    • Half the rainstorms in New York City overwhelm the systems of the waste water treatment plants.
    • EPA is reviewing rules regarding lead, copper, arsenic, atrazine — a popular herbicide — and perchlorate, an unregulated rocket fuel additive that has generated controversy in the past.
  • Hepatitis-B Vaccine
    • A syndrome that has recently been linked with hepatitis B and tetanus vaccines is called "macrophagic myofascitis"—a reaction to the aluminum adjuvant in vaccines. Victims of this syndrome suffer severe muscle and joint pain and weakness.
    • It is known that aluminum accumulates in your brain and results in neurodegeneration, leading to diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
    • According to Dr Blaylock, a board certified neurosurgeon, these neurologically damaging processes may also be contributing heavily to today's exploding autism rates.
  • Xeno-Endocrine Exposure
    • Hormone Replacement Therapy
    • Birth Control Pills
    • Growth hormones in animal feed – to make them FAT
    • Farm-fed fish
    • 48% of waterways were found contaminated with reproductive hormones – TIME Magazine – March 2002
  • The Million Women Study Lancet, April 10 2007
    • 948,576 postmenopausal women in the United Kingdom.
    • Half of the women took HRT for at least 5 years.
    • The study followed these women for
      • 5.3 years incident ovarian cancer
      • 6.9 years for mortality
  • The Million Women Study Lancet, April 10 2007
    • The women using HRT were 23% more likely to die of ovarian cancer.
    • When they added the risk of breast and endometrial cancer the risk increased to 63%
  • Endocrine Communication & Endocrine Disruption/Blocking
    • Lock and Key System
    • Cellular Activation occurs when the lock and key fit
    • The Receptor Site is The Lock
    • The Hormone is The Key
    • The Activation of The Cell Occurs on Contact
    • Endocrine disruptors fill in the site but can not activate the cell & block hormones from the site
  • Research Shows Cancer Connection
    • During studies they found cancer was growing while it was not in the body but rather in plastic tubing. They determined that the Xeno-estrogens in the plastics were feeding the cancer.
  • Research Found
    • “ Estrogen-like substances” xeno-estrogens were blocking the thyroid as well as other glands.
    • Normal Thyroid levels in the blood but no cell activation causing symptoms of hypothyroidism.
    If we placed the plastic bottles used in America in 1 yr end to end they would wrap around the world 190 times!
  • Safe Plastics without BPA
    • 1, 1 time use only
    • 2,4,5 are safe for use
    • 3,6,7, are unsafe and will leach Xenoestrogens
    • Check the recycle number
    • Wash with mild detergent
    • Avoid heat
  • Purpose Of Estrogen
    • Estrogen's functions are primarily the growth and development of sex organs and other tissues related to reproduction
    • (Guyton p1023)
    • Estrogen is produced in three main places in a woman's body:
      • the ovaries
      • the adrenal glands
      • the fat cells
  • Child Bearing Years
    • The main purpose of estrogen is to make the uterine lining, the endometrium, ready to implant a fertilized egg in the event fertilization occurs. To aid in this function, estrogen will promote:
    • water retention
    • fat storage
    • maturation of the female adolescent
  • Excess Estrogen
    • - sluggish blood circulation - migraines - increased clotting - high stroke risk - disrupted copper/zinc in brain cells - mood swings - fibroids - endometriosis
  • Conditions Associated with Estrogen Dominance in Men and Women
    • Uterine fibroid tumors
    • Fibrocystic or painful breasts
    • Cervical dysplasia
    • Systemic lupus erythematosis
    • Women on HRT

      • Diabetes
      • Hypertension
      • Obesity
      • Sarcopenia
      • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Insulin Resistance & HBP
    • As explained by Dr. Rosedale, insulin stores magnesium, but if your insulin receptors are blunted and your cells grow resistant to insulin, you can’t store magnesium so it passes out of your body through urination. Magnesium stored in your cells relaxes muscles.
    • If your magnesium level is too low, your blood vessels will constrict rather than relax, which will raise your blood pressure and decrease your energy level.
    • Insulin also affects your blood pressure by causing your body to retain sodium. Sodium retention causes fluid retention. Fluid retention in turn causes high blood pressure, and can ultimately lead to congestive heart failure.
  • Understood Must do Steps for a Healthier Body
      • Consuming healthy food choices, including plenty of quality fresh uncooked vegetables. And avoiding foods that don’t promote your health – sugar, corn syrup (including all sodas and many other processed foods), artificial sweeteners, grains...
      • Exercising for 30-60 minutes per day
      • Drinking plenty of pure water daily
      • Enjoying moderate levels of sunshine daily
