Wilkie Wages War: Barb’s Footers


Environmental Health Network leader Barbara Wilkie discovered in July 2005 that her chemical injury/multiple chemical sensitivities had suddenly manifested as stage 4 (later stage 5) kidney disease (kidney failure). Despite dire warnings of death within a year, she eschewed dialysis and Western Medicine drugs and took a route of alternative medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and strict dietary changes. She lived well for six years, far beyond the doctors’ predictions.  Barb died at home, surrounded by friends and family, on May 31, 2011.

During this time, Barb documented her journey. From diagnosis through June 2008, she created one huge website page packed with details, plus some side documents on diet and other topics.  We have divided these works into smaller pieces, by date or topic, to make it easier to read and find things.  For dates after June 2008, we have letters, online posts, and other documents.

Barb intended her work to be read and used. We hope this presentation will help you do just that.

EHN’s FDA Citizens’ Petition (YOUR petition), docket number 99P-1340,

Petition 99P-1340 requests that the FDA do the work it is supposed to do to protect public health. The US FDA does not even require its alert on all fragrances released to market without substantiation of safety. Analyses show that fragrance you buy, described as various flower essences, are really petrochemically derived. Those fragrances should carry the FDA’s required: ‘WARNING: The safety of this product has not been determined.’
