Understanding How Environmental Factors Affect Children’s Asthma
The Center for Environmental Research and Children’s Health at the University of California – Berkeley also looked at the effects of agriculture on children but they specifically looked at childhood organophosphate exposure. They found that exposure lead to increased asthma symptoms and decreased lung function. Another chemical they looked at was sulfur, specifically because it is a low-toxicity pesticide approved for both conventional and organic agriculture use. Poorer respiratory performance was associated with higher sulfur exposure. Link for this report
Understanding How Environmental Factors Affect Children’s Asthma
Sponsoring Program Name:
In the United States, 6.2 million children are affected by asthma, causing them to miss school, extracurricular activities, and other important events.
Environmental factors such as air pollution, mold, and secondhand smoke can worsen common asthma symptoms.
Research from the NIEHS/EPA children’s centers has increased understanding of what factors heighten asthma and what can be done to help children maintain a normal quality of life.
University of Iowa Children’s Environmental Airway Disease Center researched how children who live in rural communities are impacted by the agricultural settings surrounding them. There was a notion that rural life had a protective effect on childhood asthma, but this study showed that though the pollutants were different than those in urban settings, organic dusts and particles in rural areas still affected children.

Other Centers looked at the effect of traffic-related air pollution, including particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, among others. The underlying finding across all the centers was that children who live, attend school, or play near major roadways are more susceptible to asthma.
The University of Southern California Children’s Environmental Health Center specifically looked at the risk of asthma in children with no prior history of asthma and the onset of asthma in younger children living near roadways.
Researchers at the Center for the Study of Childhood Asthma in the Urban Environment at Johns Hopkins University used high-efficiency filters in homes with smokers. These filters resulted in 33 fewer days per year that contributed to asthma symptoms.
Research from these Children’s Centers continue to support advancements and increased understanding of how environmental factors affect children’s asthma. By understanding the elements that influence asthma, communities and families are better able to protect and help their children manage this chronic disease.

Thanks to CALUSA WATERKEEPER for sharing this informative article about L-Serine - I wrote about this in October and my family started taking the powder - It is a wonderful product and I have felt a noticeable difference. So has my husband. He has two parents with Alzheimers and we want to be sure we do everything we can NOT to get it, plus it has helped with the problems we were having from the Toxic Bacteria in the sand, air and water from our visits to the beach.
When I researched it in October at that time there were only 4 products available that I could find anywhere...in searching today its being offered by many more... Because it works. My original post included a video and testimonials plus where you can purchase the products. Original Post CLICK HERE
Could This Radical New Approach to Alzheimer’s Lead to a Breakthrough?
Big Pharma has spent billions and gotten nowhere. Here's what we could learn from a new theory.
By Rick Tetzeli
January 18, 2019
In a small lab in Jackson Hole, Wyo., 65-year-old Paul Cox believes he’s closing in on a treatment that might prevent Alzheimer’s disease. And ALS. And a host of other neurodegenerative diseases, for that matter. Cox, we should point out, isn’t a neurologist. He isn’t a physician of any kind. He doesn’t work at a big drug company or an academic medical center or a government laboratory. His ideas come from so far outside the mainstream of neurological research that you might think he’s crazy or deluded or worse. But then, some very credible people think he might be on to something big—which might make the improbable, quixotic story you are about to read one of the most important as well.

Love this Air Purifier ~~ I had to get another one as my other one died after 10 years. There are so many toxins in our homes inside and out .. Now more than ever with cyanobacteria from the waters and so called Red Tide we all need a good quality air purifier. I have had a quality air purifier since I had a house fire and mold was hiding in the walls of our bathroom walls that we had no idea was there. It is so important to have one in your home now more than ever. Many of my friends and family have had breathing issues for the last year alone due to the toxic waters we now have. This is the one I chose after reviewing many.

Researchers aim to spare farmers and landscape workers neurotoxic effects

Researchers in India have developed a compound that neutralizes organophosphate pesticides and are working to create a medicinal gel for farmers and landscape workers who suffer from neurotoxicity-related exposure.
Cyanobacteria blooms and non-alcoholic liver disease: evidence from a county level ecological study in the United States
How many studies are going to be completed before something is actually done????
Study is below - Conclusions are listed first
This ecological study in the contiguous US, using satellite data and data of multiple causes of death, found a significant positive association between risk of non-alcoholic liver disease mortality and cyanobacterial bloom coverage. We identified clusters of non-alcoholic liver disease mortality in clusters in those counties that also had higher bloom coverage.
The evidence for excess non-alcoholic liver disease in areas with high cyanobacterial bloom coverage suggests that more attention should be centered around the public health impact of harmful cyanobacterial blooms. Additionally, remote sensing could be used to efficiently monitor the distribution of algal blooms over a national or global level and serve as a possible early warning tool for public health alerts.
Could this be the cure for Alzheimer, Parkinsons & Lou Gehrigs Disease AND at the same time help those of us who are ill from Blue Green Algae Toxic Bacteria, etc. in the air, sand and water? It is my opinion that it is a BIG finding and while they continue to finish up their Phases of the Trials I have NO doubt it will help both and am not waiting to order some. (I have two in-laws who have Alzheimers and were ill from the Toxic Bacteria.)
Blue-green algae is common in the environment
Exposure to high doses of toxins increases brain tangles in animals
Brain tangles reduce in animals if diet supplemented with amino acid L-SERINE
Blocks BMAA's (This study found that using L-Serine would block BMAA's)
One of the much-touted benefits of Himalayan Salt is that it can reduce and treat headaches - even migraines. Critics are often skeptical of this claim, but there's a school of thought that explains why you might be getting headaches and how consuming Himalayan Salt can indeed prevent or treat this pain.
There’s nothing more annoying than a runny nose and itchy throat.
It’s even worse when your sinuses swell up and cause headaches and pain.
This article will teach you two simple trick to get lasting sinus congestion relief.
Great article by Dr. Group at the Global Healing Center ~~ Liver Cleanse is a MUST for all to rid your body of all toxins. I do this often. I would like to add one more benefit in my opinion.. To Cleanse your body of all #RedTide (Toxic Bacteria) Pesticide Illnesses that are affecting so many of you. Special right now so don't delay..

Your liver is responsible for processing toxins in the body, so you’ll want to keep it working at its best. Sometimes, though, diet or lifestyle can catch up to us, and, if that happens, a liver cleanse becomes necessary. With a cleanse, you’ll certainly get rid of all that toxic buildup, but there are lots of other perks as well.
