Chemicals routinely incorporated in every thing from suncreen to
paint to pharmaceuticals to ag chemicals (food chain) may offer
an explanation. Chemicals that are sytemic and/or enhance cell
permeability. Triazoles may offer an example, as they can
increase the free space in cell wall/membrane from sat 20 percent
to 80 percent. Cell leakage (electrolytes), changes in pH,
increased dose effect, and disruption in natural balances in
moicroflora/fauna in the human system may also occur. An extreme
example is when triazoles are administered to AIDS patients:
efficacious on target organisms, but the non-target microbes
fluourish and end up killing the patient.
In plant cells, and effects in humans are documented as similar,
triazoles zap enzymes through the leaf cuticle/cell membrane, and
yield tremendous increases/enhancement/dose effect. Enhancement
into plant cells occurs with biotoxins from various deleterious
bacteria )pseudomonas for example and phytotoxicants produced by
fungi. My feeling is, take triazole, experience amild exposure to
trichothecenes for example, and it hits you like a 100 X dose.
If this is a vialble subject, of interest, we should seek comment
from Medical researchers/MD's that are knowlegeable in this area.

laughing gas; carbon monoxide(I think the cause of m mcs)or
automobile exhaust gas;poisons cyanide and strychnine; alcohol in
suffient quantities(my mcs leaves me feeling drunk then hungover
alot);possibly some of the tranquilzers; and the hallucination-
producing substances such as mescaline. These work in various
ways to interfere with the normal function of the brain cells.
They may disturb the oxygen supply(headaches?), or they may act
on any of the special enzymes that convert body sugar into energy
for the work the cells have to do." >>>> You know, I was also
