“…a substantial body of evidence on the existence of each effect”
1. Attack our nervous systems including our brains leading to widespread neurological/
neuropsychiatric effects and possibly many other effects. This nervous system attack
is of great concern.
2. Attack our endocrine (that is hormonal) systems. In this context, the main things that
make us functionally different from single celled creatures are our nervous system and
our endocrine systems – even a simple planaria worm needs both of these. Thus the
consequences of the disruption of these two regulatory systems is immense, such that
it is a travesty to ignore these findings.
3. Produce oxidative stress and free radical damage, which have central roles in
essentially all chronic diseases.
4. Attack the DNA of our cells, producing single strand and double strand breaks in
cellular DNA and oxidized bases in our cellular DNA. These in turn produce cancer and
also mutations in germ line cells which produce mutations in future generations.
5. Produce elevated levels of apoptosis (programmed cell death), events especially
important in causing both neurodegenerative diseases and infertility.
6. Lower male and female fertility, lower sex hormones, lower libido and increased levels
of spontaneous abortion and, as already stated, attack the DNA in sperm cells.
7. Produce excessive intracellular calcium [Ca2+]i and excessive calcium signaling.
8. Attack the cells of our bodies to cause cancer. Such attacks are thought to act via
15 different mechanisms during cancer causation.
