    Not All CFL Bulbs Are The Same

    Monday, January 19th, 2009

    I recently received a newsletter from the Environmental Working Group, a lobby group for the environment in Washington D.C., which had some very important information in it. There is a lot of talk about the use of compact fluorescent light-bulbs but there is a problem with some of them because of excessive mercury. Which ones […]

    FDA Over the Moral Wall

    Thursday, December 18th, 2008

    In a stunning indictment, the Environmental Working Group, a Washington D.C. pro-environment lobby group, lambasted the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) for a recent uncovered secret document that stretches the imagination. The email that EWG sent out yesterday stunned even a jaded person like me. It read: “On Friday, December 12, the Environmental Working Group made […]

    Reducing Inflammation – Part I

    Thursday, November 13th, 2008

    Since this blog site is entitled, Toxic World Blog, you might imagine that I would discuss the issue of environmental toxicity and inflammation first and you would be right. It’s the obvious first choice and one that needs to be addressed in both a global as well as personal way. Not only do we have […]

    Pollution and the Birds and the Bees (and spiders too) – Another Indictment of Our Handling the Environment

    Friday, May 9th, 2008

    The White House’s recent evisceration of the EPA edict to lower pollution and smog may be another stake in the heart of beekeepers everywhere. Turns out smog and other parts of air pollution may be confusing the bees as well as other pollenators such as moths and bats so they can’t find the flowers. Under […]

    Diseases and Toxins – The Links are There

    Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

    There is a lot of data out there on the links between disease and environmental toxins. Problem is, there is a LOT of data on the links. Where to go if you need to see how strong the data is? Well look no further than The Collaborative on Health and the Environment’s – CHE Toxicant […]

    Prozac – A Failure to Heal

    Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

    In an article published in PLoS Medicine by Drs. Kirsch and colleagues shows that the drug Prozac is no better than placebo in treating depression. Given that placebo has no side-effects, this means that Prozac is not only worthless, but dangerous. By including unpublished, negative studies, the authors found out that the drug is a […]

    Mercury and CFLs – What is the Truth About This Issue?

    Friday, February 15th, 2008

    I have seen arguements on both sides of the issue when it comes to mercury and compact fluorescent light bulbs. CFLs contain about 5 milligrams of mercury, a highly toxic heavy metal whereas a incandescent bulb contains none. If you look at it that way, on face value, there is no way you should use a CFL. […]
