      From the state of New York’s Department of Public Health —

        “Risk is the possibility of injury, disease or death. For

        example, for a person who has measles, the risk of death is

        one in one million.

        Risk assessment

        “A process which estimates the likelihood that people who have

        been exposed to chemicals may have health effects. The four

        steps of a risk assessment are: hazard identification (Can

        this substance damage health?); dose-response assessment

        (What dose causes what effect?); exposure assessment (How and

        how much do people contact it?); and risk characterization

        (combining the other three steps to estimate risk).

        Risk management

        “The process of deciding how to reduce or eliminate possible

        health effects by considering the risk assessment, engineering

        factors (Can engineering procedures or equipment do the job, for

        how long and how well?) and social, economic and political concerns.”


    • What You Know Can Help You– An Introduction To Toxic Substances

        ” ** Potency: Potency (strength) is a measure of a chemical’s

        toxicity. A more potent chemical is more toxic. For example,

        sodium cyanide is more potent than sodium chloride (table salt)

        since swallowing a smaller amount of cyanide can poison you.

        “The potency and, therefore, the toxicity of a chemical can be

        affected by its breakdown within the human body. When a substance

        is absorbed into the body, its chemical structure may be changed or

        metabolized to a substance that is more toxic or less toxic. For

        example, carbon tetrachloride, once a commonly used solvent, is

        changed by the body into a more toxic chemical that causes liver

        damage. For some other chemicals, metabolism changes the chemical

        into a form that is more easily eliminated by the body.”

    • Environmental Factors in Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms

      and Related Syndromes: January 10-12, 2001

      Folks, check out this — the program is a PDF file. If you need Adobe Acrobat you can

      download it from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/

        “FRIDAY, JANUARY 12 …

        ” 8:30 – 12:00 Special Program – Treatment Symposium for Medically

        Unexplained Symptoms

        “Patients with somatic symptoms not explained by organic illness are a challenge for

        physicians and therapists, alike. This treatment symposium will focus on cognitive

        behavioral interventions designed specifically for the patient who presents with

        somatic symptoms and who may be resistant to behavioral treatment strategies.

        This workshop combines didactic and experiential exercises to clarify the myths and
        facts about these illnesses and to offer treatment approaches currently being

        applied with this patient group.”

      I wonder if anyone has bothered to “focus on cognitive behavioral interventions designed
      specifically for the” doctor who presents with resistence to learn about the adverse effects of
      70,000 – 80,000 chemicals in commerce today. Most chemical products are released with no
      understanding of longterm effects! And, if you get a look at deaths associated with prescribed
      medicines, you may wonder if anyone knows any of the shortterm or immediate adverse effects of
      drugs we are supposed to turst. Add to that other synthetic products like fertilizers,
      pesticides, fragrances, various cleaning and maintenance products, including the latest fad:
      antibacterials. We’re all sitting on a chemical timebomb. It IS ticking. — barb

    Enzyme Potentiated Desensitization (EPD)



      John Hopkins Public Health

      “Epidemiology is the study of the distribution of diseases and of the determinants of
      health and disease risk in human populations. Epidemiologic methods are used to gather
      unbiased evidence for characterizing the health of populations and for testing
      hypotheses by gathering and using data from populations or groups of people.
      Epidemiology is one of the quantitative foundations of public health and clinical research;
      it provides a basis for preventive approaches in medicine and public health. …”
