ACT TODAY TO CHANGE THE EPA GUIDELINES 

ACT TODAY TO CHANGE THE EPA GUIDELINES 

 

 

Recent studies released through Med Web indicate high levels of toxins found in ten umbilical cord blood samples. WHAT IS GOING ON?

 

I sent an email to Med Web thanking them for publishing this latest study.  I also brought up the question of "what about the mothers" of these ten now born children?  Would not their health be affected as well?  Common sense tells us so. 

 

This study needs further investigation and future research will tell us that women's health is also being affected by our environment especially during pregnancy and postpartum. How can it not affect our chemistry?

 

HELP CHANGE THE MIND-SET OF THE EPA

 

When the EPA continues to allow higher levels of pollutants, rather than lower, something is drastically wrong in America.  Instead of protecting our health and that of our loved ones, the EPA's policy of placing financial gain to those who pay to pollute is costing us tax dollars in increased health care. Something is drastically wrong with this scenario. 

 

The EPA's standards for what levels of toxins are allowed by factories and industry is causing us to breathe dirtier air, eat food sources with ingredients that are not natural, and reports of skin cancer are on the rise as a result of a decreased Ozone layer. Is it any wonder that the heat index has increased?

 

We simply cannot permit the EPA to continue down the same path of blatant neglect in doing what the job requires - protecting society's overall health. 

 

If we do not stand up for our right to have a clean environment, humanity one day, as we know it, will vanish right before our eyes. 

 

I am no rocket scientist by no means, but even I understand the importance for demanding environmentally friendly compliance by the EPA.  

  

ENVIRONMENT WORSE, NOT BETTER 

 

Before being diagnosed with breast cancer in the Fall of 2003, our son had just finished both radiation and chemotherapy treatments for “Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma”.  After finishing treatment for breast cancer, my youngest brother was diagnosed with having squamous cell cancer - a melanoma.  He is now back to work - probably working in the same "dirty" dirt that caused the cancer in the first place.  Can anyone say "enough is enough"!

FISH - MALE OR FEMALE?

 

Similar reports in science have indicated another new problem in our food chain. 

 

We are all familiar with the controversy over eating fish high in mercury - how much, what types are okey? We know that we need certain fish and food sources to supply us with Omega-3 for proper brain functioning.

 

Now -- another side to fish.

 

With the increased production and large distribution of certain medicines, scientists are now seeing both male and female sex organs in fish. TRUE STORY!

 

Fish do not have a choice where they live - living down-stream from water run-off such as factories making hormone-related medicines and also down-stream to your private toilet, fish in general are being subjected to chemical overload.  As a result, an evolutionary process of sorts may be beginning. Let's hope not!

 

IS IT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY THAT THE SAME FATE COULD BECOME OUR LEGACY?  It definitely could - just think about it, and then act by contacting the EPA and your state representatives in Washington to fight for you and your future health and that of your children and grandchildren and so on.

 

So, can we afford not to get involved in requesting the EPA to change its policy? The choice is up to each and every one of us, but making the choice to stand up and fight for cleaner air and soil, and safer food – is your right.  It means a “healthier you”.

 

IF WE CONTINUE TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY - WITHOUT CITIZEN INVOLVEMENT, THE EPA WILL CONTINUE LISTENING TO BIG GOVERNMENT RATHER THAN TO THOSE AFFECTED BY FLAWED POLICIES NOW IN PLACE.  IF WE SAY AND DO NOTHING TO CHANGE THE STATUS QUO, THE STATUS QUO WILL NOT CHANGE!  CONTACT THE EPA TODAY - AND ALSO YOUR STATE AND FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES!

 

   

"GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR HEALTH, AND KEEP ON KEEPING ON"
