New Study Shows That When It Comes to Pesticides and Kids, the EPA Has Looked the Other Way It’s easy to lose count of all of the pesticides that are sprayed on crops in the U.S., and well-nigh impossible to know all of the names (dichloropropene and pyraclostrobin and spinetoram and on and on). But it’s not hard to guess who gets hit hardest by all of these chemicals: kids, whose brain, nervous and hormonal systems are still developing at the time of exposure. What’s more, a new pesticide introduced today will have fewer years to build up in the tissues of, say, a 50-year old, compared to a child who will accumulate a lifetime load of the stuff. That’s the biggest reason that, in 1996, Congress passed and President Bill Clinton signed the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA). The legislation represented one of the most effective crackdowns on pesticides in the food supply to date, requiring the Environmental Protection Agency not simply to establish a safe threshold of exposure for the population as a whole, but to limit permissible levels much further—10-fold further in fact—to ensure that children are protected too. The legislation benefits everyone of course: Ten times less pyraclostrobin on your apple is a good thing no matter how old you are, but it’s children who are the most important beneficiaries.
Early exposure to household cleaning products is associated with asthma and wheeze in young children New research from the CHILD Cohort Study shows that frequent exposure to common household cleaning products can increase a child’s risk of developing asthma. Asthma is the most common chronic childhood disease and is the primary reason why children miss school or end up in hospital. The study was published today in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. It found that young infants (birth to three months) living in homes where household cleaning products were used frequently were more likely to develop childhood wheeze and asthma by three years of age. “Most of the available evidence linking asthma to the use of cleaning products comes from research in adults,” said the study’s lead researcher, Dr. Tim Takaro, a professor and clinician- scientist in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University (SFU). “Our study looked at infants, who typically spend 80-90% of their time indoors and are especially vulnerable to chemical exposures through the lungs and skin due to their higher respiration rates and regular contact with household surfaces.”
Tylenol Can Alleviate The Pain From Social Rejection, Study Finds Try as you might, you’re just not going to please everyone. Many people feel a desire to be universally liked or even loved, but in reality we all encounter people in our life that we just don’t like, or don’t like us. As such, a certain degree of “social rejection” is inevitable. Social rejection can come in a number of different forms; romantic, not hitting it off with a hiring manager on a job interview, or struggling to make new friends at school or work are just a few examples. These scenarios, while universal, are almost assuredly going to cause some emotional distress that often spirals into depression, loneliness, and even physical pain. Now, researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles say they have discovered an unlikely combination that can cure this “social pain:” forgiveness and acetaminophen, the main ingredient in Tylenol.
Special Guest Dr. Vaughn Cook
In 1985, Dr. Vaughn Cook (founder of ZYTO) went to work for the Esion Corporation, the maker of the Interro biocommunication device. During his time at Esion, Dr. Cook worked in both sales and training and became familiar with every aspect of technology-based biocommunication.
In 1988, Dr. Cook left Esion to start a company named Digital Health Corp. There he developed an innovative computerized EAV system he called the Omega AcuBase. The Omega AcuBase was the first system of its kind to be registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In 1997, Dr. Cook sold this technology to the BioMeridian Corporation, and for a short time worked for BioMeridian in sales, training, and eventually as its president. However, Dr. Cook left BioMeridian in 1998, choosing instead to focus his efforts on Digital Health’s core business.
In 2001, Dr. Cook independently began development of what is now ZYTO technology, and began selling the technology in late 2004 through Digital Health. At the end of 2004, he organized Zyto NV, and transferred his technology to the new organization including the ZYTO Hand Cradle, the initial software package, and the methods for programming computerized stimuli known as Virtual Items.
During the last 25 years, Dr. Cook has been continuously involved in the development and sale of biocommunication technology. During this time, he has also been actively involved in clinical practice as the owner of Utah Acupuncture Clinic and the Meridian Health Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. This clinical experience has strongly influenced the technology that Dr. Cook has developed and continues to develop in order to meet the changing needs of our customers.
Under the direction of Dr. Cook, ZYTO has continuously pursued product enhancements, further development of the technology, and a commitment to meeting the needs of our customers. During the intervening years, we have released multiple new versions of the software and developed new market-specific applications such as the ZYTO Compass. We have also redesigned the original hardware, including upgrading the Hand Cradle with a cleaner, sleeker look and USB functionality. More exciting innovations are to come.

Special Guest Elizabeth Glass
Elizabeth Glass Challenges Brad Hoylman for NY Senate! Elizabeth Glass is challenging Brad Hoylman for his New York Senate Seat. This is ginormous news! The mood in NY is shifting rapidly. I am not the only FED UP DEMOCRAT in NYC! Go to Glass’s Facebook page and like her page, follow, share – all that stuff you do on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/glassforsenate/ On Twitter Glass is @glassforsenate and her description is subtle yet brilliant. It reads: Mother of 4. Teacher. DV Advocate. Candidate for NYS Senate in Manhattan’s District 27. The Revolution Starts Now. Her Twitter account is locked and she is currently following only 7 people on Twitter – and I am one of them. All the tea leaves are reading very delicious right now; I think she is pro-Health Freedom (but time will tell). For those who don’t know, Brad Hoylman is the NY Senator from Manhattan who is Big Pharma’s biggest fan and most controlled puppet. He sponsors all bills that take away parental rights to control what goes into our children’s bodies. Hoylman was the original sponsor of the bill that repealed the Religious Exemption to vaccination, and now he wants to force the dangerous HPV vaccine – Merck’s Gardasil – on all New York children to go to school. He also supports children getting vaccinated in school for STDs without parental knowledge or consent, and he supports perfectly healthy HIV-negative children getting dangerous HIV PrEP drugs without parental knowledge or consent. This man MUST be VOTED OUT!
Show Up or Step Down: Protest HB 5044 Vaccine Bill on Wednesday February 19 at Hartford Connecticut Capitol The Public Health Committee has raised a bill, HB-5044, which aims to remove the religious exemption completely for all public and private K-12 schools, child care, institutions of higher education and child group care homes in Connecticut. It gives children/students who previously used the religious exemption until the start of the 2020 school year, or Sept 1, 2020 for child care, to get the initial dose of any missed, age-appropriate vaccines and to create a catch-up schedule for any additional required doses. It also would require children/students who are medically exempt from one or more of the vaccines on CT’s vaccination schedule to submit a new certificate, to be created by the Department of Public Health. The public hearing on February 19, is your opportunity to tell Connecticut legislators that you do not consent to the removal of the religious exemption. It starts at 10:30am in Room 2E of the Legislative Office Building, 300 Capitol Ave Hartford, CT.

South Dakota Bill Would End Mandatory Vaccinations for School, Push Back Against Federal Narrative A bill introduced in the South Dakota House would ban mandatory vaccinations for schools and push back against the push for federal vaccines mandates. A coalition of 14 Republicans introduced House Bill 1235 (HB1235) on Feb. 5. There’s a strong move afoot to increase mandatory vaccinations in the U.S. This includes policies to eliminate exemptions from state vaccine mandates and efforts to impose federal mandates. Mandating vaccinations is a dangerous slippery slope that violates the right to informed consent. This legislation would firmly push back against this threat to medical freedom.
The proposed law would:
- eliminate all South Dakota vaccine mandates for public and non-public schools, early childhood programs and postsecondary educational institutions
- replace current South Dakota law on mandatory vaccines with the following –
Under the proposed law, “No child entering public or nonpublic school, or a public or nonpublic early childhood program in this state, may be required to receive any immunization or medical procedure for enrollment or entry. The Department of Health may recommend any immunization for school entry but may not require them. No school may use any coercive means to require immunization. HB1235 declares, “Every person has the inalienable right to bodily integrity, free from any threat or compulsion that the person accepts any medical intervention, including immunization. No person may be discriminated against for refusal to accept an unwanted medical intervention, including immunization.”
Special Guest Shane England
Utah man arrested after cannabis fair, claiming his civil rights were obstructed The founder of Great Basin Hemp and Farm Co-op spent the weekend in jail after he was arrested, driving home from the first Utah Cannabis Fair. Shane England said he was at the fair on Saturday and that he’s licensed to transport hemp. Following the fair, England said he was on his way home to Fillmore and was getting tired. England said he pulled to the side and got out of his car to get some air. When England got back on the road around Millard County, he said a Utah Highway Patrol trooper began to follow him, then pulled him over. “He put the lights on and came up to my window,” England said. “He told me I was being pulled over for mudflap violation.” England said the trooper told him someone had called in stating a driver had been swerving all over the road.
Legal Fund for Shane England – Utah Hemp Farmer Hemp and Cannabis community, We must fight again, and we will need as many as can contribute and share to take this as far as necessary to get our rights as citizens to lawfully possess and use hemp in all its forms. As many of you have heard Shane England, the founder of Great Basin Hemp & Farm Co-op, was arrested on trumped up charges of possession of hemp and DUI while driving back from the Utah Cannabis Career Fair in Salt Lake City. His vehicle, company goods, hemp plant and personal belongings were impounded and are in danger of civil seizure. On top of that he was locked up for two days, even after performing sobriety and urine analysis tests and passing clean all on drug use. The judge gave him a bail of $1630 dollars and he has his first court date on Wednesday, February 19th in Nephi, Utah. Shane was one of the first farmers to sign up for the career fair and show selfless support for our cannabis community. He had my back when it came to supporting our cause and I’m happy to jump immediately at the opportunity to help him with his cause. Now is the time to stand with Shane and support his battle that, in the end, will help us all tremendously.
