Although brief, I addressed them fully in the prior blog, which for many gave them a huge sigh of relief..... but not so fast..... here I am writing about the actual issues that have to be dealt with regarding safety. GDD is an immunological disease, my opinion it is a Tcell disease, and further, I belief the primary culprit is the T
In this blog I return to a topic I have not addressed in over 1 year, which is understanding medical literature. It is absolutely critical when trying to evaluate medical literature and a research study is to understand fully that a study design describes the results for that experimental model, and that it may not be extrapolatable to other settings ... unless you have a very good understanding what the limitations are and the scope of applicability. I had in the past focuse
I started my quest protecting people from health care, by drawing attention to GDD, From there it was a short step to Heavy Metal Deposition Disease.... But then dealing with that, it becomes unavoidable to consider: PFAS, glysophates, and microplastics. Consider that for 1 million years of human evolution, our immune systems did not have to deal with large categories of man-made toxins... Over the last 70 years suddenly we are confronted by atleast 4 major categories of tox
