II) How You Can Help
III) Impossibly Good
Not just knowing - but apply - at each stage of learning to give up something - even if a way of life we have always known.
Population increase 1 billion in the next 15 years - taught it is okay to engage in a lifestyle of combustion fueled activity - releasing an ambient combustion aerosol (ACA) threatening all life on earth - a mass extinction of ocean species is expected (Rogers 2011) with coral reefs already dissolving, climate is changing, and the ACA is causing, promoting, or supporting many diseases including Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (Gillespie 2013, Deering-Rice 2011, Latremoliere 2009, Bessac 2008, Calderon-Garciduenas 2008, 2000, Veronesi 2005, 2001, Block 2004, Meggs 1997).
There is conclusive evidence for an amendment to the 1999 Concensus Criteria for MCS - the large increase in research understanding of the last 15 years supports a more thorough and precise definition and etiology as reflected in the announcement - MCS 3a Criteria Amendment Research Points - article to be titled: Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: Amendment to the 1999 Concensus Criteria.
II) How you can help
Those professionally qualified are asked to support as co-author concensus for the journal article announcing the amendment which consists of adding to Pt 4 the words: "although exposure to the ambient combustion aerosol supporting the underlying disease process is continuous."
All of us can help by inviting doctors and researchers to participate.
Here is how east to send information and invitations:
a) Simply e-mail or letter the links below to the doctor or researcher on your list.
b) or mail forums in addition to the links.
III) Impossibly Good
A slower paced, reduced consumption, non combustion lifestyle is needed or human beings will go extinct due to loss of environment and resources.
