Reading over posts on this board for a month now has really made me
stop and think. Political, agendas, accusations, challenges, once in
awhile something really useful, etc.
Please accept this in proper context, a few things came to mind, and
probably do not have any real meaning, just thoughts.
"The Looneys." It's in a book I was just reading, "Behind the Nylon
Curtain," employees exposed to a certain chemical were nicknamed The
Looneys because after the exposure thewy acted crazy. Now, did these
people have psych problems or exposure problems?
"Toxic Mold." "There is absolutely no credible scientific evidence
link..." We hear it all the time. And if the liable parties have
their way, there won't ever be any scientifically credible evidence.
It's the same for mold, chemicals, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, tires,
what have you.
At the same time exposed/injured persons are discredited, specific
chemicals are used in chemical warfare, and specific organisms
(toxins) are used as biological warfare agents. If any of these are
the same, i.e. fusarium and stachybotrys, does how they are labeled
(weapon or indoor mold) determine when they are toxic?
