Weed killer and Pesticide Poisoning
Is there any Medical literature available, that I can obtain
copies, for treating neurological problems related to the use of
Commercial weed killers, Dursban, insecticides, and other similar
toxic derivatives and substances.
Note: I am a Consulting Engineer, and a Diabetic, who has not
hesitated to research into the causes, and hopefully, the cure,
of Type II Diabetes, by reading related Medical papers such as
those published in the Biophyscal Journal, and other similar
Journals, as time and money permit. I understand and recognize
the diabetic symtoms V-E-R-Y C-L-E-A-R-L-Y!
When I got out of the Hospital after my Triple Bypass, my
friend/neighbor across the street from my house, Fred and his
wife, assisted me in recovering, by providing chauffeuring,
cooking and other physical chores, until I had recovered enough
of my strength and stamina to once again be on my own.
In the course of these actions, I found out that Fred was
stuggling with some kind of illness himself. In several private
conversations, he revealed to me that in the past, he was a very
active outdoors individual who ran his own business:
landscaping, lawn care, floral and grass installations, design
and maintenance. In this business he used many spray and powder
weed and insect killers. He did N-O-T pay close attention to the
label warnings about potential neurological and other health
related problems that can occur by direct skin absorbtion.
Now, under treatment for increasing neurological problems, Fred
tells me that the increasing number of Doctors he has seen, keep
asking if he has Diabetes and testing him for it. Fred tells me
that he keeps telling these Doctors of his past work history, and
according to him, they ignore his testimony, and perform all
kinds of tests, apparently unable to recognize the neurological
symptoms, which are, as I hear them described, quite clear to me.
Nine (9) days ago, Fred climbed a ladder, and this activity
pulled a tendon under his left knee. I had suspected for some
time, based on his complaints, that he was developing Peripheral
Artial disease. When I saw him yesterday, 19 March, I recognized
necrosis setting in below his left knee. He is in constant
pain. He is going to lose part, or all, of his left leg below
the knee. He is only 45 years old.
