The Case Against Fragrance, Part 1
November 28, 2017
Are you bothered by fragrance? You’re not alone. "The Case Against Fragrance" by best-selling novelist Kate Grenville reveals how widespread fragrance intolerance is, and how it may pose a major health threat. Many suffer headaches, nausea, malaise, asthma, nasal congestion, rashes and brain fog on exposure to fragrances; additionally, most fragrances are artificially synthesized from petrochemicals. Are “natural” fragrances preferable? What about aromatherapy, essential oils, and scented candles? Haven’t most of these chemicals been safety-tested? Why are musks a special case? Is there a downside to tampering with our innate scent-guided biology? Why is perfume use not just a matter of personal choice? Do people have a right to fragrance-free air? Don’t you need fragrance to make deodorant effective? Are there sources of fragrance-free detergents, soaps, personal care products, and cosmetics?

Toxic Mold Exposure, Part 1
October 3, 2017
Toxic mold exposure in the wake of the recent hurricanes: Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, author of "Surviving Mold," is an expert on illnesses acquired after exposure to the interiors of water-damaged buildings. He details how mold and bacteria can create a witches' brew of systemic medical problems distinct from their ability to trigger allergies. Chief among them is inflammation which leave sufferers with memory deficits, depression, muscular weakness and bodily aches and pains. These symptoms can easily be misdiagnosed as depression or PTSD in the wake of the loss and displacement that hurricane victims experience. Biotoxicity from mold and bacterial agents causes real, but poorly understood, physical changes. When combined with exposure to chemicals released in the environment, this can result in Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Why are some more prone to biotoxicity than others? What should be done to remediate the problem in the immediate aftermath of flooding? How do you test for biotoxicity? Why are anti-fungal medications not the answer? What long-term therapies offer relief to sufferers? Click HERE for part 2.
