Jeepers! I had exactly the same symptoms when I was being bombarded with microwaves from cell phone towers near my home and place of work and from the WiFi from my adjacent neighbors’ apartments! They all disappeared when I moved into a microwave-free environment up in the mountains of Japan, (which was very difficult to find btw)! The main clue here is staring us right in the face:
“[he] called his wife one day from a cellphone in the men’s room of his Manhattan office building.”

I have immense compassion for this person; but I don’t have any for those unwilling to tell us (or for those unwilling to even to accept or consider) what might very well be the truth of what are really causing these problems — i.e. those who just want to pretend nothing is wrong and maintain the status quo. If one looks at the brain of the rat exposed to two hours of cell phone radiation then it really does become a no-brainer. It (science) is about making “logical inferences” based on facts. But obviously most people are not even able to do that anymore — i.e. their brains are being fried — and basically they just regurgitate things they hear or read in the media: “I thought Autism/ADHD was genetic.” “The reason more children have autism and brain tumors now is because they are being diagnosed more.” “The bees are dying because of a virus!”

Like this person, I had to leave my position — a relatively well-paid and respected position as Associate Professor at Kyushu University in Japan. But the severance package there (for foreigners) was approximately a lousy one months salary — enough to move our furniture back to my wife’s parents’ house in central Japan. And then there was no social security to help because being sensitive to electromagnetic radiation is a condition that most governments (in bed with the cell phone industry) don’t want to admit exists. And because I have taken on the moral responsibility to try to do something about and to be publicly open about this problem (on the Internet), I am being discriminated against in the workplace — even though I am perfectly healthy now. I am being discriminated against for having had a condition that most governments will not even admit exists.

When Alzheimer’s Hits at 40
Early-Onset Sufferers Juggle Children, Job and Dementia
By SHIRLEY S. WANG

Brian Kammerer, the 45-year-old chief financial officer of a small hedge fund, called his wife one day from a cellphone in the men’s room of his Manhattan office building. A colleague had just asked him for something, he whispered, but he had no idea what it was.

“It clicks and it holds papers together,” he said.
“A stapler?” Kathy Kammerer asked.
“I think that’s what it’s called,” he replied.

Soon after that exchange in early 2003, the father of three was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, capping nearly five years of uncertainty and fear about his increasing forgetfulness and difficulty with language.

While most people who get Alzheimer’s are over 65, Mr. Kammerer is one of about 500,000 Americans living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias at an atypically young age. Alzheimer’s takes a long time to develop — usually, it isn’t diagnosed until 10 years after the first symptoms appear — but more Americans are identifying it early, thanks in part to aggressive screening programs pushed in recent years by groups including the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, a national alliance of caregivers.

The disease can be especially torturous when it creeps up on those in their 30s and 40s. As these patients move through Alzheimer’s early stages, they are forced to cope with the dread of not knowing what is happening to them, often in the years when they’re raising young children and building financial security. As the disease progresses, there are slip-ups to cover, appearances to keep up. When these “early onset” Alzheimer’s sufferers are finally diagnosed, they face hard questions — whom to tell and when, and what these divulgences mean for their jobs and health insurance.

Overall, an estimated 5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, with as many as 10% diagnosed under the age of 65 — the definition of early onset, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, a national research organization. As the population ages, the number of individuals with Alzheimer’s is expected to hit 7.7 million in 2030.

Suffering from Alzheimer’s at an Early Age
2:59
Bill Kammerer began feeling the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in his mid-30’s. As WSJ’s Shirley Wang reports, the disease touched off a series of hard questions for his family. (Nov. 14)
A Wife’s Words
Listen to WSJ reporter Shirley Wang and Mrs. Kammerer talk about early warning signs, hearing her husband’s diagnosis, what a typical day is like for him now and how the disease has changed her perspective on life.
• Health Blog: Four Signs of Early Alzheimer’s
There are no Alzheimer’s cures now on the market. Current medications mitigate some symptoms but don’t slow or halt the disease’s progression. Pharmaceutical companies are working on new therapies that reduce or remove amyloid, a sticky substance in the brain thought to play a role in the disease. There are more medicines in development for Alzheimer’s than any other neurologic disease except pain, according to Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the industry trade group. It will likely be years before a new generation of drugs makes it to market.

Now 51 years old, Mr. Kammerer, like many Alzheimer’s patients, had no history of the disease in his family. He grew up on the north shore of Long Island, where he stood out at school for his talent with numbers. After attending college at the State University of New York-Albany, he got a job on Wall Street.

Mr. Kammerer met his future wife, Kathy, in 1983 at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, the investment bank where they both worked. Kathy, who had also grown up on Long Island, recalls not quite believing it when the handsome, fun-loving man with thick brown hair she was dating asked her to marry him.

They wed in 1991. Soon they had a son and two daughters, and Mrs. Kammerer stopped working to care for them at their home in Long Island’s Massapequa Park. Mr. Kammerer commuted into Manhattan.

Mr. Kammerer worked long hours in the office, his wife and former colleagues recall. But he also had a lively and self-deprecating sense of humor. Mrs. Kammerer said he was the life of the party. “He always had a cigar hanging out of his mouth,” she says.

He had “a blue-collar mentality in a white-collar job,” says Martin Jaffe, chief operating officer and co-founder of Silvercrest Asset Management Group LLC, who worked with Mr. Kammerer for 15 years.

Back home, Mr. Kammerer gave his children silly gifts like plastic glasses with fake moustaches and took his wife out dancing on date nights. He whisked the family away on surprise vacations to Florida. In the summers, he loved to barbecue and organized impromptu family slumber parties under the stars, his daughter Kate, now 13, recalls.
In 1998, Mr. Kammerer started complaining of ringing in his ear. He sometimes felt dizzy, Mrs. Kammerer recalls. Other times he gave his wife a look as though he didn’t understand what she had just said. The Kammerers sought out a neurologist, who suggested Mr. Kammerer get a magnetic resonance imaging scan of his brain.

When the MRI results came back, they didn’t look normal, the neurologist told the Kammerers. The doctor was unable to give them a diagnosis, however: He couldn’t say whether there was something wrong, Mrs. Kammerer recalls, or whether Mr. Kammerer’s brain had always looked that way.

Had they even suspected Alzheimer’s, it would have been difficult to diagnose. Doctors look for patients or their families to report a collection of symptoms — such as forgetfulness, social withdrawal and difficulty planning or finishing complex tasks — that worsen over years. (The dizziness and ringing ears Mr. Kammerer experienced aren’t generally considered symptoms.) Currently, Alzheimer’s can be diagnosed conclusively only by autopsy.

Mrs. Kammerer recalls staring at the picture of her husband’s brain. “This is our future,” she thought. She wondered whether she would need to get a job again should her husband be unable to work. The idea of going back to Wall Street terrified her, she says.

The Kammerers agreed that until they knew what was happening, life should go on as usual. They said nothing to the children. Around friends and colleagues, they kept quiet about their concerns, fearing Mr. Kammerer would lose his job if word of his symptoms leaked out. “I lost a lot of sleep,” Mrs. Kammerer says.

One day in 1999, Mrs. Kammerer grew more alarmed: Her husband couldn’t remember the word “sneaker.” Soon after that, he started saying things like “my brain is just not functioning right here,” Mrs. Kammerer recalls.
That year, at age 40, Mr. Kammerer was named a Chief Operating Officer of DLJ Mutual Funds, a Donaldson Lufkin division. His new responsibilities included presentations to the board of a Wall Street firm of 11,300 employees.
Within a year, Mr. Kammerer was struggling more often with words, a symptom of the disease called aphasia. But, always gifted at math, he showed no sign of having trouble with numbers, a key part of his job.

To compensate, he worked into the night, when colleagues weren’t around. He increasingly called his wife from work, reading her memos he had written to make sure they made sense.

Co-workers say they had no idea what he was going through. Debbi Avidon, who worked for Mr. Kammerer from 1993 to 2001 and is now at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., says she noticed Mr. Kammerer’s longer hours but attributed it to his workaholic tendencies. “He was always very diligent and thorough,” Ms. Avidon says.
Mr. Kammerer also withdrew socially. The cigar-smoking stopped. So did social drinking.

Mr. Jaffe, Mr. Kammerer’s former boss for much of his time at DLJ, says that had he known about Mr. Kammerer’s memory problems, he’s not sure what he’d have done. “I would hope we would take the high road,” he says. He would have been concerned about whether the condition hampered Mr. Kammerer’s command over important numbers, he says, which might have meant a change in job responsibilities. “There probably are many jobs you can do well with that malady,” he says.

In late 2000, Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse Group acquired DLJ. As is often the case in takeovers, Credit Suisse cut some of DLJ’s top executives. Mr. Kammerer lost his job in June 2001. His severance package included two years of salary and a year of health insurance. He took the rest of the summer off and played a lot of golf.
By then, Mrs. Kammerer says, her husband didn’t recognize certain people and couldn’t name some objects. He became good at covering, smiling if he didn’t know what he was being asked or calling people whose names he’d forgotten “sweetie” or “buddy.”

Mr. Kammerer didn’t consider leaving the work force. His kids were all under the age of 12. There were many more years of private-school and college tuition to pay.

But he began to lower his sights. Returning home from a positive interview for a prestigious job — running a European company’s U.S. operations — he told his wife: “You know, Kathy, I don’t think I can do this.”

Instead, he sought out lower-level financial-industry jobs that wouldn’t require him to work closely with others. He wrote out cue cards to take with him on interviews and changed the topic when he didn’t understand what an interviewer had asked.

1. A Very Serious Warning 36 Years Ago
“The electromagnetic radiations emanating for radar, television, communications systems microwave ovens, industrial heat-treatment systems, medical diathermy units, and many other sources permeate the modern environment, both civilian and military.”

“Unless adequate monitoring and control based on a fundamental understanding of biological effects are instituted in the near future, in the decades ahead, man may enter an era of energy pollution of the environment comparable to the chemical pollution of today.”

“The consequences of undervaluing or misjudging the biological effects of long-term, low-level exposure could become a critical problem for the public health, especially if genetic effects are involved.”
These quotations are excerpts from the US government report “Program for Control of
Electromagnetic Pollution of the Environment”, which was published in December 1971. The government report was drafted starting in December 1968 by an expert group made up of nine people, “The Electromagnetic Radiation Management Advisory Council”. “The President’s Office of Telecommunications Policy” issued the order. This report was an urgent warning for the future.

Alzheimer’s: Power lines double the risk
Published on Friday, November 14, 2008
by Healthy News Service
Living near a power line can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s and senile dementia, a major new study has confirmed this week. People who live within 54 yards, or 50 m, of a power line more than double their risk of a neuro-degenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s compared with people who live at least 600 m from a line.
The time you live near a power line also determines the risk level. Living within close proximity of a line for 15 years or longer doubles your risk compared with someone who has lived close to a power line for less than five years.
These findings are based on a study of 4.7 m people living in Switzerland.

Doctor says an oil lessened Alzheimer’s effects on her husband

________________________________________
After two weeks of taking coconut oil, Steve Newport’s results in an early onset Alzheimer’s test gradually improved says his wife, Dr. Mary Newport. Before treatment, Steve could barely remember how to draw a clock. Two weeks after adding coconut oil to his diet, his drawing improved. After 37 days, Steve’s drawing gained even more clarity. The oil seemed to “lift the fog,” his wife says.

Photobucket

The only thing that kept Dr. Mary Newport positive in the face of her husband’s early onset Alzheimer’s disease was that he didn’t seem aware of how much ground he was losing.
“He didn’t know the full ramifications of his decline — I hate to say it but that was the only blessing. I was watching my husband of 36 years simply fade away,” said Dr. Newport, 56, a neonatologist and medical director of the newborn intensive care unit at Spring Hill Regional Hospital.
An accountant, Steve Newport left his corporate job the day his first daughter was born, allowing his wife to finish her medical training. As time went on, he worked from home, keeping the books for her neonatology practice and taking care of their two daughters, now age 22 and 26.

About six years ago, Newport began struggling with daily tasks. He took longer to complete the business’ payroll and was making more mistakes.
“I didn’t know what was happening to me. I was confused,” Newport said of his prediagnosis days.
“There were big clues, and I knew that something was going on here,” Dr. Newport said.

They saw his primary care physician, who referred him to a specialist. The diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s was a devastating blow. According to the National Institutes of Health, as many as 4.5-million Americans have Alzheimer’s. Early onset Alzheimer’s strikes people age 30 to 60 and is rare, affecting only about 5 percent to 10 percent of those with Alzheimer’s.

While there is no way to confirm an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, Newport tested positive for the genetic marker that puts a person at higher risk for early onset Alzheimer’s.

He was put on several FDA-approved medicines to help slow the progression of the disease, but he continued to decline. In August of last year, Dr. Newport said, her husband underwent a “drastic change,” losing more than 10 pounds.

“He had completely lost interest in eating, and that was not a good sign,” she said. He also abandoned the kayaking and gardening he loved so much.
Dr. Newport searched the Internet for clinical drug trials that would accept her husband. In May, he was set to apply for studies in St. Petersburg and in Tampa.

A fuel that nourishes the brain from birth
The evening before the first screening, Dr. Newport stayed up late researching both drugs. During that research she discovered a third that had shown unbelievable results — actual memory improvement.

“Most drugs talk about slowing the progression of the disease … but you never hear the word ‘improvement.’ Right then I knew I had to find out more,” she said.

She began vigorously researching online and uncovered the new medication’s patent application. She found an in-depth discussion of its primary ingredient, an oil composed of medium chain triglycerides known as MCT oil.

In Alzheimer’s disease, certain brain cells may have difficulty metabolizing glucose, the brain’s principal source of energy. Without fuel, these precious neurons may begin to die. But researchers have identified an alternative energy source for brain cells — fats known as ketone bodies, explained Dr. Theodore VanItallie, a medical doctor and professor emeritus at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University in New York City. He has been researching ketones for more than 35 years.

“Ketones are a high-energy fuel that nourish the brain,” VanItallie said, explaining that when you are starving, the body produces ketones naturally. When digested, the liver converts MCT oil into ketones. In the first few weeks of life, ketones provide about 25 percent of the energy newborn babies need to survive.

As Dr. Newport continued to read about MCT oil and the new medication, she discovered something surprising: Non-hydrogenated coconut oil is more than 60 percent MCT oil, and this medication derived its MCT oil from this readily available tropical tree.

Newport was not accepted for the first clinical trial. He was unable to remember the season, month or day of the week, and he scored a 14 out of 30 on the mini-mental state examination, a test used to screen for dementia and assess the level of impairment. He tested too low and, according to the results, had “severe” Alzheimer’s.

One important test for Alzheimer’s progression is to draw the face of a clock from memory. That afternoon, Newport could barely remember how the clock looked, said Dr. Newport.

“We were devastated,” she said.

She tried to reassure herself and her husband by looking forward to the next day’s second screening, but she was beginning to feel hopeless.
“And then it hit me,” she said. “Why don’t we just try coconut oil as a dietary supplement? What have we got to lose? If the MCT oil in it worked for them, why couldn’t it work for us?”

Trying out coconut oil and testing result
On the drive home, she stopped at a health food store and bought a jar of nonhydrogenated, extra-virgin coconut oil. The experimental medication’s patent application was complete with dosage information, and she did some quick math, converting the measurements.
The next morning she stirred two tablespoons of coconut oil into her husband’s oatmeal, and she tried it in hers, too.
On the way down to the second screening in Tampa, Dr. Newport quizzed her husband, asking him the day, month and year.

“I prayed harder than I’d ever prayed in my life,” she said.
Her prayers were answered. Steve scored an 18 on the exam, the highest he’d scored for more than a year and four points higher than the previous day.
“It was like the oil kicked in and he could think clearly again,” Dr. Newport said. “We were ecstatic.”

Newport was accepted into the trial but more importantly, the coconut oil he’d ingested seemed to “lift the fog.” He began taking coconut oil every day, and by the fifth day, there was a tremendous improvement.

“He would face the day bubbly, more like his old self,” his wife said.
More than five months later, his tremors have subsided, the visual disturbances that prevented him from reading have disappeared, and he has become more social and interested in those around him.

Nothing can repair the brain damage he has sustained as a consequence of Alzheimer’s disease, and there is no cure. But it appears the oil is helping, Dr. Newport said.

Studying effect of diet on other diseases
The Newports are not the only ones who have found positive results with ketones. In 2005, Dr. VanItallie studied the ketogenic diet’s effect on Parkinson’s disease. In his study, five patients stuck to the diet for one month, and all of the participants’ tremors, stiffness and ability to walk improved, on average, by as much as 43 percent.

“Our study was very successful for our patients,” Dr. VanItallie said, explaining that the one drawback is that the ketogenic diet mimics starvation. It is low carb, low protein and nearly 90 percent fat, he explained. “People can’t really stay on this diet for long, it’s too restrictive.”
His study was preliminary, but he said he hopes it will “pave the way for future research.”

Parkinson’s is similar to Alzheimer’s in that it is neuro-degenerative, and glucose metabolism may be affected, Dr. VanItallie said.
“We know that if we give patients ketones, we can bypass this glucose block,” he said. However, researchers don’t know if the effect is short term or long term. He is pushing for larger and more disciplined studies.

Since starting the coconut oil regimen with her husband, Dr. Newport has become somewhat of an expert on the subject. Though not a neurologist, her background as a medical doctor and her biochemistry classes in medical school have helped her understand the way MCT oil is converted into ketones, and how beneficial this dietary supplement can be for those unable to process glucose.

Additionally, ketones may be beneficial to those with Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Type I and II diabetes.
“I think (Dr. Newport) is quite courageous. Most people give up when they are facing severe Alzheimer’s, but she feels she’s got significant improvement,” said Dr. Richard Veech, chief of the lab of metabolic control at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.
Dr. Veech has been working with ketones for more than 40 years and has become a valuable resource to the Newport family. Currently, he is working for the military, looking into ketones as a way to improve the performance of troops in severe conditions.

He has written several articles about the subject and is convinced that ketones can provide more cellular energy than glucose and that they may be the key to aiding those with neuro-degenerative diseases.

He has helped guide Dr. Newport in her personal study and answers many of her questions. Though her experience with ketones is not the peer-reviewed, double-blind clinical work researchers like to see, Dr. Veech said her results are promising.
“(Dr. Newport) is getting the best she can with what she has,” he said.

Dr. Veech stresses the importance of consulting a physician before trying coconut oil at home. He said ingesting too much of one type of fat can be dangerous and can also cause diarrhea and vomiting.

Dr. Newport realizes more research is needed, but she is pleased with what she’s seen so far.

“I’ve got living proof that this will help people,” she said. “I want to just tell everybody about this. It may help them improve, too.
“All I’m asking is to investigate this further. After living through Alzheimer’s, anything that can stabilize or help improve (your loved one) will be worth every drop.”

Amish farmers say the livestock ID scheme is a violation of their fundamental religious beliefs Photo: AP
A group of seven Amish farmers in Michigan say the state’s insistence that they use radio frequency ID devices on their animals “constitutes some form of a ‘mark of the Beast’ and/or represents an infringement of their ‘dominion over cattle and all living things’ in violation of their fundamental religious beliefs,” according to their lawsuit.

Some Amish, who have a booming business in producing organic milk, disagree with radio ID tagging so strongly that they said they will give up farming if they do not get an exemption.

The Amish, members of an Anabaptist Christian denomination, are best known for their literal interpretation of the Bible and their simple lifestyle.
The livestock registration is intended to create a national tracking system to help contain outbreaks of diseases such as mad cow disease, or foot and mouth.
But the Amish claim that the scheme threatens their religious beliefs because, they believe, it is part of an ongoing attempt to number every living thing, a practice mentioned in Revelations where it is linked with the Devil.

The US department of agriculture (USDA) argues that its cattle tagging plan is voluntary and that the lawsuit should instead be directed at the state of Michigan, which wants to make it compulsory.

The USDA has also pointed out that farmers, including Amish ones, are already using numbered metal studs to track animals.

Huss A, Spoerri A, Egger M, Röösli M; for the Swiss National Cohort Study.

The relation between residential magnetic field exposure from power lines
and mortality from neurodegenerative conditions was analyzed among 4.7
million persons of the Swiss National Cohort (linking mortality and census
data), covering the period 2000-2005. Cox proportional hazard models were
used to analyze the relation of living in the proximity of 220-380 kV power
lines and the risk of death from neurodegenerative diseases, with adjustment
for a range of potential confounders.

Overall, the adjusted hazard ratio for
Alzheimer’s disease in persons living within 50 m of a 220-380 kV power line
was 1.24 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.80, 1.92) compared with persons
who lived at a distance of 600 m or more. There was a dose-response relation
with respect to years of residence in the immediate vicinity of power lines
and Alzheimer’s disease: Persons living at least 5 years within 50 m had an
adjusted hazard ratio of 1.51 (95% CI: 0.91, 2.51), increasing to 1.78 (95%
CI: 1.07, 2.96) with at least 10 years and to 2.00 (95% CI: 1.21, 3.33) with
at least 15 years. The pattern was similar for senile dementia. There was
little evidence for an increased risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,
Parkinson’s disease, or multiple sclerosis.

Spain Wifi Discomfort at the University of Baiona

Some (electro-magnetic radiation) waves could be the source of the discomfort at the University of Baiona.

While carrying out analysis of the air in the IUT of Baiona from the malaise of last week, failure of the Wi-Fi system on Monday has agree with a sense of well being in the administrative offices.

This week, classes at the Faculty of Commerce of Bayonne have been displaced to the old campus. An inspection by the technical services and hygiene of the place in Baiona did not allow to conclude what are the causes of headaches and dizziness for students, and if they have to do with the air.

All this week, and the next (week of vacation in Iparralde), there will be some air sensors installed in offices, in the auditorium and administrative offices of the new university, opened for only one month.

On Tuesday morning, employees who had felt headaches felt much better than the day before: the disappearance of headaches, breathing feeling better. However, it had not yet conducted any special treatment from the air.

Because the simple installation of devices to measure could not be at the origin of this improvement, only a precautionary measure, more discreet, improvements that could explain that the affected employees have felt since Monday: Wi-Fi connections in the administrative area, positioned a few meters of offices, in the corridors of the ITU, have been withdrawn.

If the measurements of air shows little determinants, the issue of electro-magnetic waves and its harmful influence on the so-called electro-hypersensitive people will have to be analyzed.

Disorders Wifi

According to the World Health Organization, the electromagnetic hypersensitivity “is characterized by various symptoms that affected people attribute to exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). These symptoms can include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling sensation and burning sensations), neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations and digestive disorders). This set of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome. ”

Since the end of 2007, the question of WiFi and its potential health risks is the subject of questions, especially in places like public libraries: Several employees have complained of problems, as well as headaches and malaise, and name of the precautionary principle, the WiFi system, for example, has been disqualified in 4 libraries of Paris.

This story is from Spain but it has been forwarded to me from France. The translation to English is not very clear but I think we are able to understand the general meaning.

It appears that students at the University of Baiona have been complaining of headaches, breathing problems and dizziness (symptoms of microwave exposure illness). In response the University is conducting air testing. When the University WiFi system failed, persons on the campus soon noticed an improvement in their health.

It will be interesting to see whether the University management will recognize the dangers of microwave radiation and take positive action, or whether they will continue to deny that electro magnetic radiation is harmful and fail to protect students and staff.

I have been working for a local District Council for 18 yrs and approximately 3 years ago a mast was erected outside our office window. Since then I have had problems with my teeth, pain in my mouth quite regularly over these years.”

“I have requested information from my Health & Safety Officer and twice got back the latest information on the dangers of these masts, which is saying there is no proven risks. In the last 6 months, we have had 5 new ladies employed in our office, all working in the same vicinity of this mast. 2 of the five have had severe problems with their teeth in these 6 months, one has very back teeth anyway, I have had one wisdom tooth loosen and had to have out and another break in half, we were discussing this on Friday, and another lady has started having strange sensations in her mouth, she said like a magnet going over her teeth. The only lady who hasn’t had any problems has got all white fillings in her teeth. I asked all the others whether they have got all Mercury fillings and they have, as I have.”

A paper co-authored by Keith and published three years ago in the U.S. journal Environmental Health Perspectives suggests that exposure to various chemicals produced by industrial plants surrounding the Aamjiwnaang reserve land may be skewing the community’s sex ratio.

The researchers looked at the community’s birth records since 1984 and saw “a dramatic drop in the number of boys being born in the last 10 years, particularly in the five-year period between 1998 and 2003,” Brophy said.

Of 132 Aamjiwnaang babies born between 1999 and 2003, only 46 were boys. Typically, about 105 boys are born for every 100 girls in Canada.
High miscarriage rates and a unusually high number of children suffering from asthma were also noted by researchers.

Although the link between pollutants and human reproduction has not been firmly established, there is growing evidence that the birth sex ratio can be altered by exposure to certain chemicals, such as dioxin, PCBs and pesticides. Brophy said studies done in the United States, Japan and Europe seem to support the theory that the so-called endocrine disrupting chemicals have a particular effect on males.

Some of these chemicals are found in commonly used products such as baby bottles and cosmetics. They can also cause miscarriages and a “whole host” of disorders in a male child, Brophy said.
Brophy said soil and water contamination in and around the Aamjiwnaang reserve had been documented before, including in a University of Windsor study that found high levels of PCBs, lead, mercury and various chemicals in the area in the late 1990s. Accidental chemical spills in the area have not been uncommon.

GLOBAL AWARENESS
But it wasn’t until the Aamjiwnaang birth ratio study was published that the global science community really took notice.
“It triggered … calls from scientists and researchers from around the world who had been looking at this issue in Europe and the United States,” Brophy said. “Aamjiwnaang became almost the poster child.”

While Brophy has not seen The Disappearing Male documentary yet, he believes the story of the Aamjiwnaang community will be “the focal point.”

He said the documentary also includes interviews with “some of the foremost experts in the world” on environmental effects on reproductive health.

Brophy and Keith have also studied other occupational and environmental exposures to pollutants, including the link between breast cancer and certain types of jobs in the Windsor-Essex region.
