Cancer is the second leading cause of death, exceeded only by heart disease. Among children ages 1 to 14, cancer is now the leading cause of death by disease. At current rates, invasive cancer will be diagnosed in half of all men and in one in three women in their lifetime. More than 1.3 million new cases of invasive cancer will be diagnosed in 2006 meaning that approximately 1,500 Americans will die of the disease everyday. “Whether it is cancer or autism that is affecting our families and showing up in our examination rooms, the growing rates of chronic disease compel us to search for clues and answers to determine the true causes of these increasingly prevalent illnesses,” says the Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR). Almost 100 percent of these people are suffering from chemical poisoning.
According to National Cancer Institute, 98% of all cancer is caused by toxic chemicals and that the long term effect of greatest interest to the EPA in chemical poisoning is cancer and chemical sensitivity is its second concern.
The EPA acknowledges in its handbook that pesticide poisoning is a commonly under diagnosed illness in America today. Doctors generally receive very limited training in occupational and environmental health and in pesticide-related illnesses, in particular. The long term effect of greatest interest to the EPA in chemical poisoning is cancer and chemical sensitivity is its second concern. (EPA)
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Third National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals revealed that the bodies of Americans of all ages contain 148 synthetic chemicals, some of which are known or suspected carcinogens.
Dr. John Green a specialist in neuro-degenerative diseases in children says, "6 out of 10 children suffers from a neurologic condition due to toxins. We are no longer the minority." He was talking about consumer product and environmental toxins. That's 60% of our children. That's just the percentage with neurologic conditions. Other speakers at the same conference linked all childhood cancers to consumer product and environmental toxins.
The same is true for birth defects, as studies by the American Red Cross show adult body burden of toxins are transferred to the fetus and have been measured in umbilical chord blood. “In total, the babies' blood had 287 chemicals, including 209 never before detected in cord blood.”
Those facts are horrifying enough, but we haven't even begun to discuss the same facts in the adult populations. 95% of adults have blood serum levels of BPA that cause changes on 200 genes. CDC
There are no beneficial genetic changes. Genetic damage leads to disability and illness. BPA is just one of the hundreds of toxins found in adult body burden studies.
“We could cut the health costs of childhood disabilities and disease by billions of dollars every year by minimizing contaminants in the environment,” said Phil Landrigan, MD, MSc, of the Children’s Environmental Health Center at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “Investing in our children’s health is both cost-effective and the right thing to do.”
“The overwhelming evidence shows that certain environmental exposures can contribute to life-long learning and developmental disorders,” noted Ted Schettler, MD, MPH, with the Science and Environmental Health Network. “We should eliminate children’s exposures to substances that we know can have these impacts by implementing stronger health-based policies requiring safer alternatives. Further, we must urgently examine other environmental contaminants of concern for which safety data are lacking. ”
“The proportion of environmentally induced learning and developmental disabilities is a question of profound human, scientific and public policy significance,” said lead author Steven G. Gilbert, PhD, DABT, of the Institute of Neurotoxicology & Neurological Disorders, “and has implications for individuals, families, school systems, communities and the future of our society. The bottom line is it is our ethical responsibility to ensure all children have a healthy future.”
Can Cause Prostate Cancer:
Results confirm previous studies that have found associations between pesticide use and risk of prostate cancer among farmers. Compared to the general population, the farmers who used pesticides had a 14 percent greater risk of developing prostate cancer. About 30,000 U.S. men will die of prostate cancer this year and more than 220,000 will be diagnosed, according to the American Cancer Society. The largest risk factors for the disease include age and family history. Additionally, African-American men have higher rates of prostate cancer than other ethnicities.

study found that children whose parents used store-bought home and garden
pesticides are up to seven times more likely to develop childhood leukemia.
Studies have also linked pesticide exposure to breast and prostate cancer,
Parkinson’s disease and immune system disorders.
The Environmental Protection Agency—while claiming to regulate pesticides—acknowledges that 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides and 30% of insecticides are known to cause cancer, nerve damage, birth defects and other ailments, and that pesticides can block the absorption of important food nutrients necessary for optimal health.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- An extensive federal report released Monday (11-17-08) concludes that roughly one in four of the 697,000 U.S. veterans of the 1990-91 Gulf War suffer from Gulf War illness. That illness is a condition now identified as the likely consequence of exposure to toxic chemicals, including pesticides and a drug administered to protect troops against nerve gas.
There are millions of toxins, only a handful have been measured and research on checking chronic contamination and/or the accumulative effects, has barely begun and receives almost no attention or funding.
The nations leading Toxicologist, Neuro degenerative disease specialist, geneticist and researchers estimate, conservatively, that 40% of the population is adversely affected. That's 4 out of every ten people that you encounter are severely and even life threateningly affected by the common, everyday consumer Product toxins that healthy peoples bodies can adequately address. Because of our injuries, we can’t.
From the NW Regional ADA's office (2005) (Toxic Injury by it's various names) is the fastest growing segment of the disabled population,"
The Research shows that there is a corresponding rise in neuro-degenerative disease to the increase in consumer product toxins.
The Research shows that there is a corresponding rise in all forms of cancer to the increase in consumer product toxins.
The Research shows that there is a corresponding rise in birth defects & infant mortality to the increase in consumer product toxins.
The Research shows that there is a corresponding rise in pcp's, bped's, dioxins, pthalates and other known carcinogens in the blood of newborns and in umbilical chord blood.
The Research shows that there is a corresponding rise in chronic health conditions to the increase in consumer product toxins.
The Research shows that there is a corresponding rise in childhood disease, chronic health conditions and neurologic conditions to the increase in consumer product toxins.
The CDC says that 95% of adults have blood levels of BPA that are known to alter the behavior of 200 genes.
Dr. John Greene in the 2006 DAN, Seattle conference said,"6 out of 10 children suffer a neurologic condition due to (consumer product) toxins. They are no longer the minority."
2005, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention completed screening
for the presence of 148 toxic chemicals in the blood of a broad cross section
of Americans; it found that the vast majority of subjects harbored almost all
the toxins. In the same year, the CDC’s National Survey on Family Growth
concluded that rates of infertility were rising for women under the age of
twenty-five, a spike many scientists attribute, at least in part, to routine
exposure to toxic chemicals. The Environmental Working Group conducted tests on
the umbilical cords of ten newborns in 2006 and discovered that cancer-causing,
endocrine-disrupting, and gene-mutating chemicals had passed from the mothers to
their fetuses through the placenta.

exposures cost California an estimated $2.6 billion.
Existing state laws regulating the production and use of hazardous chemicals have serious gaps and fail to protect public health and the environment, according to a new report released by researchers at UCLA and the University of California, Berkeley.
In 2004, more than 200,000 California workers were
diagnosed with deadly, chronic diseases, such as cancer and emphysema,
attributable to chemical exposures in the workplace, according to the report. Another
4,400 died as a result of those diseases. The new findings, based on
well-established methodology for analyzing economic impact, indicate that those
diseases resulted in $1.4 billion in both direct medical costs and indirect
costs that include lost wages and benefits.
An additional $1.2 billion in direct and indirect costs is attributed to 240,000 cases of preventable childhood diseases related to environmental exposure to chemical substances, the report says.

"In a strongly worded declaration, many of the world’s leading environmental scientists warned Thursday that exposure to common chemicals makes babies more likely to develop an array of health problems later in life, including diabetes, attention deficit disorders, prostate cancer, fertility problems, thyroid disorders and even obesity.
The declaration by about 200 scientists from five continents amounts to a vote of confidence in a growing body of evidence that humans are vulnerable to long-term harm from toxic exposures in the womb and during their first years.

Bisphenol A is a known hormone disruptor and several studies have shown that exposure to BPA in utero can cause breast cancer later in life. As Pete Myers, founder and CEO of Environmental Health Sciences, has noted: “Since 1997, well over 200 articles have been published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature showing that BPA (bisphenol A) has a biological impact on cells and animals beneath the current federal standards, which were based on data gathered in the early 1980s… Significantly, all of the reports of major effects come from government or academic studies, while none of the 12 studies funded by industry has reported harm.”

Virtually all cancer survivors who have had toxic treatments like chemotherapy experience short-term memory loss and difficulty concentrating during and shortly after treatment according to experts. A vast majority improves, but for approximately 15 percent, or roughly 360,000 of the nation’s 2.4 million female breast cancer survivors’ cognitive side effects, remain years later, according to experts.
At least two peer-reviewed studies have described associations between autism rates and pesticides (D'Amelio et al 2005; Roberts EM et al 2007 in journal Environmental Health Perspectives.). It is estimated that 300,000 farm workers suffer acute pesticide poisoning each year in the United States. No one is checking chronic contamination.
September 19, 2005 LOWELL – The University of Massachusetts Lowell released a report that links dozens of environmental and occupational exposures to nearly 30 types of cancer. “We need to pay attention to environmental and occupational risk factors,” said Molly Jacobs, project manager. “Known and preventable exposures are clearly responsible for tens of thousands of excess cancer cases each year. It is unconscionable not to implement policy changes that we know will prevent sickness and death.” http://www.sustainableproduction.org/pres.shtml

In May 2002 a coalition of environmental and public health organizations contracted with a major national laboratory to test 72 name-brand, off-the-shelf beauty products for the presence of phthalates, a large family of industrial chemicals linked to permanent birth defects in the male reproductive system. The laboratory found phthalates in nearly three-quarters of the products tested. Snip: In animal tests some phthalates damage the developing testes of offspring and cause malformations of the penis and other parts of the reproductive tract. The same phthalates that cause permanent harm of the male reproductive system in laboratory studies are also found in hair spray, deodorant, and fragrances. http://www.nottoopretty.org/report.htm
HARVARD RESEARCHERS FIND SPERM DAMAGE LINKED TO PHTHALATE USED IN FRAGRANCES:
December 9, 2002: A new peer-reviewed study suggests that diethyl phthalate (DEP) – a chemical commonly used in fragrances and other grooming products – is damaging to the DNA of sperm in adult men at current levels of exposure. The study, posted today on the Environmental Health Perspectives website, was conducted by Dr. Susan Duty, a post-doctoral scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health; Russ Hauser, MD, Department of Environmental Health, Harvard School of Public Health; and others. The study was conducted on adult males being evaluated in a fertility clinic, and found a correlation between damage to the DNA in sperm and DEP exposure at the levels already present in the men. Recent product tests found the chemical in every fragrance tested in the United States. DEP is also the phthalate found in the highest levels in people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and confirmed by the new study. Previous studies have reported DNA damage from other phthalates in other cell types, but this is the first report of phthalate-associated DNA damage in human sperm at current exposure levels in the general population. "The correlation found in this study is extremely troubling and deserves urgent follow up. The last thing you want is DNA damage to sperm, which can lead to infertility and may also be linked to miscarriages, and birth defects, infertility and cancer in offspring," said Dr. Ted Schettler, science director of the Science and Environmental Health Network: http://www.nottoopretty.org/pr_spermdamage.htm

It's shocking to me that hundreds of thousands of people are dying of
asbestos-related disease across this country but most people don't know a thing
about it," says Chris Weis, an asbestos coordinator for the
Environmental Protection Agency. Medical evidence dating back to 1899 has
shown that asbestos is a slow but steady killer, even though world governments,
including our own, and the popular media have long bought into the idea that a
little asbestos won't hurt you. In fact, a single microscopic spear-shaped
asbestos fiber lodged in a victim's lung can cause myriad fatal reactions.
Physicians estimate that exposure to asbestos will eventually kill millions of
Americans. They will die of asbestosis, mesothelioma, tremolite poisoning, or
cancer of the esophagus, colon, or stomach
Flu Shots and Alzheimer's Disease:
According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times (nearly 850 papers in peer review journals): If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied) his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is 10 times higher than if he/she had one, 2 or no shots. Dr. Fudenberg said it was so and that it was due to mercury and aluminum that is in every flu shot. The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction. Flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury. One microgram is considered toxic. http://www.royalrife.com/flu_shots.html

JOEL SHUFRO, executive director, New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCHOSH). For each worker killed on the job as a result of traumatic injury, 10 workers die of occupational diseases. An estimated 66,000 workers die each year from occupational disease and their employers are never prosecuted. Standards exist for only 500 of the some 70,000 chemicals used in the workplace, and those standards are woefully out of date and inadequate.

Accordingly to David Pimentel, PhD, Cornell University entomologist, less then one hundredth of one percent of sprayed pesticides reach their intended target. Pesticides cause serious health problems including deaths, toxicity, neurological effects, reduced immune responses, learning disabilities, and others (Pimentel, 2004). Each year worldwide there are 26 million pesticide poisonings with 220,000 deaths (Richter, 2002). In the U.S., NCFH (2004) reports there are 300,000 nonfatal pesticide poisonings.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECONOMIC COSTS OF THE APPLICATION OF PESTICIDES PRIMARILY IN THE UNITED STATES DAVID PIMENTEL College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-0901 Tel:(607) 255-2212; Fax: (607) 255-0930; email: email@example.com Abstract: An obvious need for an updated and comprehensive study prompted this investigation of the complex of environmental costs resulting from the nation's dependence on pesticides. Included in this assessment of an estimated $10 billion in environmental and societal damages are analyses of: pesticide impacts on public health; livestock and livestock product losses; increased control expenses resulting from pesticide-related destruction of natural enemies and from the development of pesticide resistance in pests; crop pollination problems and honeybee losses; crop and crop product losses; bird, fish, and other wildlife losses; and governmental expenditures to reduce the environmental and social costs of the recommended application of pesticides. The major economic and environmental losses due to the application of pesticides in the U.S. were: public health, $1.1 billion per year, pesticide resistance in pests; $1.5 billion; crop losses caused by pesticides, $1.4 billion; bird losses due to pesticides, $2.2 billion; and groundwater contamination, $2.0 billion. Key words: agriculture, costs, crops, environment, livestock, natural resources, pesticide, pesticide resistance, public health.
"Twenty-six scientists from 10 countries evaluated the available evidence on the carcinogenicity of formaldehyde, a widely used chemical", reports Dr Peter Boyle, Director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization. The working group, convened by the IARC Monographs Programme, concluded that formaldehyde is carcinogenic to humans. Previous evaluations, based on the smaller number of studies available at that time, had concluded that formaldehyde was probably carcinogenic to humans, but new information from studies of persons exposed to formaldehyde has increased the overall weight of the evidence. http://www.iarc.fr/pageroot/PRELEASES/pr153a.html.

So far EU has only listed some 5,000 substances as dangerous. http://www.fbr.dk/chemaware/newslet/issue11/article1.html, 20,000 chemicals deemed dangerous, Issue # 11, October 23rd 2000
Toluene can effect you when breathed in and by passing through your skin, may cause mutations, may damage the developing fetus. Handle with extreme caution. Exposure can irritate the skin nose, throat, and eyes. Higher levels can cause you to feel dizzy, lightheaded, and to pass out. Death can occur. Repeated exposures can damage bone marrow, causing low blood cell count. It can also damage the liver and kidneys, can cause slowed reflexes, trouble concentrating, and headaches."

U.S. scientist Samuel Epstein, author of several books on cancer, say 80 to 90 per cent of human cancer is determined environmentally.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that "the results of individual studies suggest that formaldehyde exposure may be associated with increased risk of lung cancer, brain cancer, and leukemia."
"The evidence is strong that formaldehyde is a carcinogen. It is a mutagen; namely it is capable of attacking the genetic materia of cells, and producing permanent genetic damage. 95% of chemicals that show mutagenic activity are carcinogenic. That formaldehyde is a demonstrated carcinogen in animals is now undisputed.
