Formed as a word and a chemical compound in an culturally diverse Europe, calomel came to America as a solution to epidemics also imported. It grew into a primary gesture, both medical and commercial, of the healing professions. Opposition to its use, founded on experience with the effects of consuming it, took the form of song and satire that echoed faintly after the drug was forgotten.

Pamela Elizabeth Rn Lacek
R392 R331 Discovery Miles 3 310 Save R61 (16%) Shipped within 18 - 22 working days

This is a 47-chapter non-fiction story about Mercury poisoning from my eight dental amalgams and one root canal. I had fillings since age eight at least. The World Health Organization states that 87% of Mercury poisoning in humans comes from their mouth. Amalgam fillings are 50-52% Mercury.
Childhood vaccinations with 'Thimersol;' a Mercury based derivative only add to the problem. They are becoming much more profuse now. Even flu shots use Mercury as a preservative. When I asked to have my root canal tooth pulled by an experienced dental surgeon, he said that the Mercury had leaked up my right sinus a great distance. This is the side that the root canal was on. I had an amalgam tattoo above the root canal too.
Nutrition and hand washing are the way to beat illness. My deep faith has helped me through much brutality, both physical and emotional. It's all documented. I'll close with what I believe and say, "God sees it all." This belief got me through everything.
I published this book because my deepest desire is to help others; they need not go through what I went through.

Preclinical screening for drug-induced mitochondrial dysfunction can predict toxicity and revolutionizedrug development

All too often, despite adherence to regulatory guidelines, a new drug reaches the market and its toxicity is not discovered until many patients have been exposed. In many cases, this unpredicted toxicity is due to the drug's adverse effects on mitochondrial function or replication. This reference presents technological developments that facilitate preclinical drug evaluation for potential mitochondrial toxicity, addressing the issue early in the drug development process. With chapters contributed by leading specialists in their areas, Drug-Induced Mitochondrial Dysfunction:

Explains basic concepts so that non-specialists can understand mitochondrial function

Discusses mitochondrial etiology of organ toxicity, covering the liver, heart, and kidney, as well as the skeletal muscle, nervous system, and lipoatrophy

Details methodologies and techniques used to assess mitochondria function so researchers can address drug-induced mitochondrial impairment in their own labs

Includes new models that detect drug-induced mitochondrial impairment in short-duration studies typical of preclinical drug evaluations

Features both in vitro and in vivo methods for analysis, including practical screening approaches for drug discovery and development

This is the authoritative reference on drug-induced mitochondrial dysfunction for safety assessment professionals in the pharmaceutical industry, including bench scientists and managers, and for pharmacologists and toxicologists in both drug and environmental health sciences.

International Poisonous Plants Checklist - An Evidence-Based Reference (Hardcover): D. Jesse Wagstaff International Poisonous Plants Checklist - An Evidence-Based Reference (Hardcover)
D. Jesse Wagstaff
R3,600 Discovery Miles 36 000 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

Knowledge of plant toxicity has always been important, but the information has not always been reliable. Now, increasing international trade is drawing attention to the inadequacy of regional information and highlighting the geographical fragmentation and notorious discrepancies of thinly documented information. The international community of safety regulators, toxicologists, and poison control personnel requires a single reference compiled of verifiable, primary source reports of common poisonous plants.
Intended for just that purpose, International Poisonous Plant Checklist: An Evidence-Based Reference successfully addresses the deficiencies and gaps in the current literature. Using accepted botanic names, the book defines the known set of toxic vascular plants. The use of botanic names satisfies the need for an international standard of identity to support worldwide communication and commerce. Also, taxonomy based on common ancestry and genetic connections provides a rational basis for studying and using plant relationships.
The author supports toxicity information with references to the primary literature. Each entry includes referenced citations supporting the toxicity of the plant, symptoms and circumstances of toxic exposure, dosage and potency, chemical analysis, botany, pharmacology, mechanism and metabolism, and control.
Finally, the book cross-references selected synonyms and common names. The checklist is organized alphabetically with two types of entries. The main entry documents the toxic plants themselves and a secondary entry lists selected synonyms and common names cross-referenced to the main entries.
Including virtually all common animal feed plants, human food plants, and many plants that are sources of herbal products and dietary supplements, tonics, and therapeutic agents, this timely checklist compiles and verifies the known data on toxic vascular plants from around the world.

Something is dreadfully wrong. Of those who survive life in the womb, one out of two go on to have a serious defect, disease, or neurological disorder. Half the population About 1 out of 500 babies dies of "SIDS," while about 1 out of 150 develops autism. Many more have varying degrees of Tourette's syndrome, OCD, ADHD, or behavioral disorders. Alzheimer's is an epidemic among the elderly. Depression, violence, and sleep disorders plague our society. Neurotoxicity reigns.

Heavy metals are likely the largest cause of the epidemic of neurological disorders. Yet, many claim our problems are only due to genetics. The truth is that these problems are the result of environmental factors, such as faulty lifestyle, yet environmental toxicity can be passed on from one generation to another. What we're seeing is an epidemic of Genetic Heavy Metal Toxicity.

There are many names given for many different neurological "disorders," yet they all share the same root causes, primarily of which is metal toxicity. Can this be stopped?

This book brings together key features of the toxicology and occupational hazards of pesticides and the way their use is regulated in the main trading regions of the world. There are chapters on each of the main groups of insecticides, namely organochlorines, anticholinesterases and pyrethrins and pyrethroids. The book also covers fungicides and herbicides, as well as more specialised agents such as microbial pesticides. The risks and hazards to humans are considered, both occupational and through the consumption of contaminated foodstuffs. Additionally, clinical aspects of pesticide poisoning are discussed.

The possibility of harm from pesticide exposure has led to the development of national and international regulations governing the application of pesticides. The book describes the regulatory systems in three major economic areas: the North American Free Trade Area (USA, Canada and Mexico), the European Union and Japan.

This book should be of interest to all individuals working on the development and application of pesticides anywhere in the world. All those involved in the manufacture, regulation and toxicology of pesticides should also benefit from reading this book.

Traditional herbal medicines encompass an extremely diverse group of preparations that originate from many different cultures. In recent years, such products have become widely available commercially in developed countries, where mixtures prepared from medicinal plants have been marketed or uses that were never contemplated in the traditional healing systems from which they emerged. In many countries, herbal medicines are not subject to rigorous standards with respect to manufacturing, efficacy, quality and safety. For example, herbal remedies containing plant species of the genus Aristolochia and used in Europe for body weight loss have caused kidney disease and urothelial cancers and are now classified as carcinogenic to humans. This monograph evaluates the carcinogenic risks to humans posed by the use of some traditional herbal medicines, Fumonisin B1, and the industrial organic chemicals naphthalene and styrene, and provides an update of the data on the carcinogenicity of aflatoxins. An Annex to the volume describes fungal sources and formation of aflatoxins in foods and feeds, and discusses practical strategies for reduction of aflatoxin levels.

This volume evaluates possible carcinogenic hazards from exposures to static and extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields. It is the first of two IARC Monographs volumes on various kinds of non-ionizing radiation. Extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic field exposures result from proximity to electric power transmission lines, household wiring, and electric appliances and are in addition to the exposure that results from the earth's magnetic field. Overall, extremely low frequency magnetic fields were evaluated as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). Static magnetic fields and static and extremely low frequency electric fields could not be classified as to carcinogenicity to humans (Group 3).

Kentucky occupied an unusual position with regard to slavery during the Civil War as well as after. Since the state never seceded, the emancipation proclamation did not free the majority of Kentucky's slaves; in fact, Kentucky and Delaware were the only two states where legal slavery still existed when the thirteenth amendment was adopted by Congress. Despite its unique position, no historian before has attempted to tell the experience of blacks in the Commonwealth during the Civil War and Reconstruction. Victor B. Howard's Black Liberation in Kentucky fills this void in the history of slavery and emancipation. In doing so, however, he does not just chronicle the experiences of black Kentucky, because as he notes in his introduction, "such a work would distort the past as much as a book concerned solely with white people." Beginning with an overview of the situation before the war, Howard examines reactions to the emancipation proclamation and how the writ was executed in Kentucky. He also explores the role the army played, both during the war as freed black enlisted and after the war as former slaves transitioned to freedom. The situation for former slaves in Kentucky was just as precarious as in other southern states, and Howard documents the challenges they faced from keeping families together to finding work. He also documents the early fights for civil rights in the state, detailing battles over the right to testify in court, black suffrage, and access to education. As Black Liberation in Kentucky shows, Kentucky's slaves fought for their freedom and rights from the beginning, refusing to continue in bondage and proving themselves accomplished actors destined to play a critical role in Civil War and Reconstruction.

This book evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by arsenic and arsenic compounds. Arsenic is widely distributed in the earth's crust and is emitted into the atmosphere by coal-fired power generation plants and volcanic activity. Inorganic arsenic of geological origin is found in groundwater, which is used as drinking-water in several parts of the world, e.g. Bangladesh. In these areas, drinking-water is the main source of arsenic intake, but elsewhere food is the principal source.
