by Lynn Tondat Carter T he time may soon come when our spiritual journeys may become blocked by the sheer inability of our bodies and minds to join in. The reason: insidious poisoning by toxic chemicals. How are the effects of these toxins manifested in the body and mind? It is estimated that 60 to 80 percent of all cancers are a direct result of chemicals in our air, water and food. Further, neuroscientists are now studying the role of environmental toxins in the development of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, and in mental/behavioral disorders such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and attention deficit disorder. T oxins that directly affect the nervous system are called neurotoxins. Since the nervous system is intricately connected to the immune system, neurotoxins also affect our immune functions. Thus, our very ability to think and feel normally can be drastically affected by exposure to toxins. It does not take a giant leap of logic to realize that we could soon be in such a state of toxic poisoning that we would be unable to "problem-solve" our way out. How serious is the problem? Serious.

Japan struggles with environment Wednesday, March 10, 1999 By Maggie Suzuki and Rick Davis
Species such as the Japanese macaque are routinely killed as "pests," despite their regionally endangered status in Japan. Japan has long been criticized for lagging behind other nations in its commitment to environmental issues. These days, the environment is getting more attention than ever in the Land of the Rising Sun. But a weighty question remains: How much is actually being accomplished? The Law to Control Packaging Waste is a case in point. It's garnered a lot of attention, and on the surface, it appears Japan is taking great strides. Yet critics say that enormous problems remain. Record low prices for waste paper made 1997 yet another crisis year for the recycling industry, which operates on the brink of collapse despite high recycling rates. Stacks of old newspapers and magazines still adorn curbside pickup points on "burnable trash" days, and paper accounts for about 20 percent of Japan's municipal waste. At least half of all aluminum and steel cans are recycled, but the introduction of smaller PET plastic bottles by beverage companies has hindered efforts.

Toxins In Our Environment
Kim N., Medford, MA

Is it morally right to dump oil in the ocean, killing thousands of birds and fish? Is it morally right for factories to give off gaseous waste, causing holes to appear in our ozone layers?
All of us have somehow contributed to the fact that our ozone layer is slowly being destroyed. When I say this, some people may say, "I don't own a factory that produces harmful waste," or, "I don't have anything to do with rain forests being burned." But, my question to you is, do you use pesticide sprays, hair spray, deodorant spray, or any aerosol spray cans? Do you drive to school or work, take a cab or a bus? If you answer these questions honestly, you will realize that you are also a contributor to our environmental problems.
Some say it is too late to help the ozone layer. It is a known fact that because of our mistakes, these holes are heating up the earth underneath the tundra, causing the ice to melt and giving off methane gas. This gas causes the hole to grow bigger. We may not be able to stop the growth, but we can do something. We can get together and help make this process slow down. We can try to make it a brighter day for the children of the future and when we do this, we show our appreciation and respect for the gift we were given. n

Second National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals reveals chemicals in our bodies The CDC's Second National Exposure Report provides a snapshot of the levels of some 116 chemicals in Americans' bodies. Some of these chemicals, like mercury , are known to be highly toxic, even in small amounts. For others, like tungsten , we have very little knowledge of their toxicity.
Some of the substances get into our bodies after being emitted by industrial facilities as pollution; others come from the foods we eat, natural sources, past pollution, or a combination of all three.

How Toxins Affect Us
by Diana Fairechild
This narrative, written in 1991 by James M. Miller, M.D., was part of Diana Fairechild's legal challenge to United Airlines for toxic chemical poisoning. The U.S. Supreme Court denied the claimant's petition for writ of certiorari on 10-06-97 and a 10-year legal effort ended with no compensation for loss of health and loss of job.
Humans, like all living creatures, are by nature biochemical organisms. Our continued good health is dependent upon the proper functioning of innumerable enzymes participating in an enormous number of biochemical reactions.
These reactions must take place at the proper time, at the proper rate, to the proper extent. We see, smell, taste, hear, balance, walk, talk, chew, swallow, reproduce, sleep, think, and remember as a result of the proper functioning and proper balance of the many biochemical processes that support these functions.
Chemicals enter our bodies through the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, and the respiratory tract. Certain substances are useful to the body and support its biochemical mechanisms, while others are not useful or are even harmful. The latter are called xenobiotics. We exercise relatively little ability to be selective and tend to take in some of all the chemical substances presented whether they are desirable or not.

Listen to the report For centuries, the Inuit of Canada's North have hunted. While they've felt the pressures of modern life, many still lead remarkably traditional lives, spending their days hunting for their own food, mainly seals, whales and caribou. But now scientists and environmentalists are saying the food they've always relied on may soon be unsafe to eat. It's contaminated with high levels of some of the world's most dangerous chemicals. They're known as persistent organic pollutants, or POPs, and they're concentrated in Canada's Arctic. They're a concern to Inuit hunters like Meeka Mike and her friend Joshua Kanguk. Most of their lives have been spent out on the land and the sea. Even though there are two grocery stores in Iqaluit, Meeka and Joshua get most of their food from the land. They have no appetite for chips, pop, or chicken wings. "I don't eat seal every day," says Meeka. "Depending on our catch. If my family catches some then I'll have some. Last week we had seal at least four times for supper. But I think the average Inuit family eats it a lot more often than I do, than my family does." Meeka can't imagine life any other way. This is how her ancestors lived, and this is how she was raised. But now she's hearing disturbing things. People are saying the seals she hunts and feeds to her family are becoming increasingly toxic. They're poisoned with persistent organic pollutants.

Although spiders commonly are encountered in the home and work environment, spider bites rarely cause significant morbidity. Ticks occur amongst cats and dogs locally, but rarely occur in a human host. Amongst the few cases of human bites, none have been associated with paralysis or tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease. Many species of snakes are found in Singapore thrive in both their natural habitats as well as in developed areas. Most species are non-venoumous, and many of the venous bites are dry bites with no significant envenomation. Usually only one significant envenomation per year occurs, usually among workers from the zoo. Besides supportive care, a polyvalent antivenom that covers the locally venomous species also is given. At present, research and development of ELIZA diagnostic kits for the locally venomous snakes bites are underway. The Portugese man-of-war and the sea wasp (Box jelly-fish) are endemic in the surrounding waters and among the venomous marine creatures found in Singapore. Stings are common and mainly manifest as local reactions that tend to persist for the long term as neuroectodermatitis at the sting site. No fatalities have occurred so far, but significant morbidity from gut ileus has been encountered. Stings from sea anemone, corals, sea urchins, and cone shells occasionally are encountered, but mainly produce only local reactions.
