                [Europe, Germany, ]

                                [Scientists in Europe have discovered that increasing numbers of complex drugs - including heart

medication, anti-depressants, anti-epileptics, anti-cancer chemicals, cholesterol-lowering medicines,

sex hormones, antibiotics, hormone replacement, aspirin, vitamins and ibuprofen – are surviving the human

digestive system, passing through sewage works and entering rivers and the sea.

                Dr Thomas Ternes, of Germany's Institute for Water Research, carried out sampling at one sewage

works outfall and found 36 different drugs, plus five other compounds that had been metabolised from

them before they left the patient.

                Scientists are blaming the drug pollution for some of the widespread and until now unexplained

mass deaths of tiny aquatic organisms. Some drugs, especially anti-depressants, have also been found to

alter sperm levels and spawning patterns in aquatic life. Musks and chemicals used in perfumes, and

compounds from suntan lotion, have been found to have accumulated in fish.]

["Serotonin, for example, has been used to induce spawning in molluscs. Many anti-depressants which are ending up in rivers are designed to interfere with serotonin production in humans and may affect spawning," he said.]

            abstract: Sea Sickness.(pollution, algae blooms, and climate change affect coral reefs and other marine organisms)

Nor is bleaching the only threat to corals. Increasingly, Cervino points out, these colonies are also

exhibiting infections, tumors, and "obscure" lesions. "We've been going to photos of corals from as far back

as the 1930s," he says, and find no sign of many of these diseases.

                Over the past 15 years, for instance, "there has been a very striking increase in the frequency and

extent of harmful algal blooms," notes JoAnn M. Burkholder, an aquatic botanist at North Carolina State

University in Raleigh.

            HEED's data now link many of these blooms of poison-producing algae to pollution (SN: 9/27/97,

p. 202) and a widespread warming of coastal and shallow waters.  Moreover, Burkholder observes, HEED's

data suggest that the ecological impacts of these blooms are more pervasive than most biologists had

realized. Until recently, scientists typically investigated marine disease outbreaks as isolated incidents. The

idea that some might be linked struck Epstein when he began ruminating about a host of events in 1987.

            The dangerous consequences of factory farming are being felt all across the country
            BY ANDREW NIKIFORUK
                                Long after the dead have been buried in Walkerton, Ont., rural Canadians who rely on

 groundwater will continue to feel and smell the impact of a largely unreported revolution: the growth of

 factory farms. This new industry, or what governments call "intensive livestock operations," has unsettled 

farm communities from New Brunswick to Alberta. Unlike the family  enterprises of old, which proudly

cared for 20 pigs or 60 cattle, these new  facilities operate on an entirely different and largely unregulated

scale.

                In addition, the world's key pork producers, Taiwan and Holland, recently pushed production into

the danger zone, causing severe water pollution and animal disease outbreaks. But their environmental

disasters have had an effect here: hog barns managed by Europeans or funded by Asian investors are

popping up all over the country.

Canola and the myelin sheath

Some speculate on the actual or potential effects of ELF and RF/MW radiation such as microwaves, wireless cell phones and computers. There seems to be studies that show these things to be detrimental to the neurological system causing accelerated aging (enhanced cell death and cancer), moods,

depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence. I do not have an opinion on microwaves but these studies

seem to show something could be happening to people that have enough money, need, and / or the

knowledge to use cell phones.

                It would seem that these people could also be knowledgeable enough to be health conscious, if

they are health conscious and use Canola Oil which is a known to cause neurological problems - it strips the myelin sheath off of the (neuron's) axon. Brain cells are known as axons, and stripping the myelin

sheath off of them causes them to short circuit as well as the potential of other problems. Other items

that can cause problems or cancer are MSG, Bovine Growth Hormone, food colorings and sugar. Top

The Health Effects Of  Canola Oil - None Dare Call It Rape

      By Don Harkins for the SPOTLIGHT
      From the Idaho Observer 5-99
      http://proliberty.com/observer/19990502.htm 12-13-99

Canola is a name that recently appeared in the marketplace and is apparently derived from

Canadian-oil.  Canola oil is actually produced from the rape seed plant.  Rape (Brassica napus), a member

of the mustard family, is listed in the Encyclopedia Britannica as a poisonous plant with toxic effects which

include pulmonary emphysema, respiratory distress, anemia, constipation, irritability and blindness in

cattle.

            According to John Thomas, author of Young Again: How to Reverse the Aging Process, The name

canola disguised the introduction of rape oil to
            America.

(New 23Oct 98) Monsanto is the company that makes Aspartame, Bovine Growth Hormone, Terminator Seed Technology, Roundup, and assorted other goodies that are being proven detrimental to the health of the family.
    Sugar has been shown to be addictive and a hazard to your health(1). It has been linked to lung disease when used to cure tobacco. Think of burnt sugar, now think of burning it in a cigarette.  But what of cigarette manufacturers, wonder of some of them are ready to make marijuana cigarettes - considering California's newest legislation. What are the alternatives? It is not Aspartame or artificial sweeteners, the ones currently on the market have been shown to CAUSE things like Diabetes, heart attack to hyperactivity and death. So what is the alternative? Macrobiotic Cooking(2) and the cookbooks that they have put out can be a guideline. If anyone has other ideas, or urls please send them to me! Will be putting a editorial on sugar in this site within the next several weeks. In the Middle Ages refined sugar was originally handled by apothecary shops as a dangerous drug, it was not until the Age of Enlightenment that it started being used. It is one of the causes of degenerative disease, as well as mental and emotional disorders. Bottom line - do we label ADD, ADHD as genetic because we refuse to stop using things that are detrimental to our health or do we look for the answers? One more help - some vitamins have a bad bases, check out info on the web, I suggest you look through the links - I use NATURAL and only the natural food supplements. These are different in the ways that they are made. That means that even though the merger between Monsanto and American Home Products (makers of Centrum) fell through, "I" think that in some ways they are still treading the same path.

10) Quotes
"When life gives you lemons, Make Lemonade"
"It is better to be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" Abe Lincoln
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever." -Gandhi

--Continued from Top--
    The answers seem as varied as the people that give them.  Yet, I have found that there is a definite link between hyperactivity and chemical reactions.  One of these is described in Sweet Poison, -need a link to formaldehyde in some furniture for this next area-.
Could this mean that if we use a type of elimination technique to see what items might be affecting ourselves and our children, and while we try that see if the elimination technique (of chemicals) has any effect on the amount of medicine they require (if any) that we may be in for a surprise.  Could this have started during the time that many people were trying to imply that much of what is / has happened to us is strictly genetic?

    There are some children and adults that never seem to have "obvious" allergies or reactions to the things they eat.  Still I know of no one that will not have a reaction to Ammonia if they are around it long enough, and anyone that has a swimming pool know that what acid can do.  Up till now medical professionals seem to have believed that the blood / brain barrier would protect our brains from what happens to our bodies, research has shown this is not true.  If there can be varied reactions and reaction times to something as common as ammonia, what of some of the other items in our environment?

    ADD - ADHD - GIFTED = learning styles have been around for ages.  What I take exception to is people saying that everyone should be a carbon copy "peer group" and that if the child or person does not get along where they are that they will not get along anywhere else.  That they are locked in some kind of cage for life.  If the effects of Ritalin are suppose to be different for adults and children, then this implys that there is change. . .(New 02 Nov 98)

    Watch out for Aspartame in toothpaste, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laurath Sulfate in shampoo, make sure they are from natural sources.
Then -- "Pyrethroid poisoning be made available to the general public as a matter of urgency. The fact that these compounds are being used as a head lice treatment for children is appalling." There are links on this page where you are able to research these chemicals.
(New 25Oct 98)

      This still is basically a rough draft.  I am a student, that has a personal interest in the use and abuse of drugs.  Because of that personal interest, the only way that I can justify the time spent putting this page together is to use it as a reference on my scholarship applications.  There are more links that will be added in the future - they are somewhere in my bookmark file(s), these are detailed as "for future" next to where they will be placed.
