EXCERPT

Two Flashes, Two Epidemics

    As the first of the two Twin Towers began to collapse, I saw in a flash that it was the beginning of a very long story—the same story I had seen in a flash ten years earlier in the first images of terror and toxicity of burning oil fields in the Gulf War.

    In 2001, ten years after the Gulf War, there were over 115,000 victims of the Gulf War syndrome in the country. They lived  severely diminished lives, shunned by doctors, neglected by the Department of Defense, and considered malingerers by their families and friends.

    In 2005, four years after the collapse of the Twin Towers, there were over 250,000 victims of the September Eleven syndrome in the City. They also lived  severely diminished lives, shunned by doctors, neglected by the City officials, and considered malingerers by their families and friends.

    In 1991, nearly 700,000 men and women were involved in the Persian Gulf conflict. Later, more than one of every ten such persons developed the Gulf War syndrome.

    In 2001, over two and one-half millions people in metropolitan New York were exposed to the unrelenting terror and toxicity of the Twin Towers inferno. Later, more than  one of every ten such persons developed the September Eleven syndrome.

The Human Canaries

    In old mining days, miners carried canaries in cages deep into their mine shafts. The birds were a sort of intelligence system. If there were poisonous gases in the shafts, the birds would warn the miners. When the birds collapsed or died, the miners knew there were toxic gases in the shaft even though they could not smell them. They left the birds and ran out to escape the poisonous mine gases.

    I consider persons with the Gulf War and September Eleven syndromes to be human canaries. They are more vulnerable to environmental toxins than others. They are more sensitive to functional nutritional deficiencies than others. Their cells and tissues are more readily injured by oxidative stress then others. They develop the oxygen disorder sooner than others. The oxygen disorder then leads to weakness of the immune system, chronic ill, health, fatigue, and problems of mood, memory, and mentation.

    The anguish and suffering of the Gulf War and September Eleven canaries cannot be understood until their constitutional weakness is recognized. Nor can they be treated properly until their special needs for nutritional support and detoxification are addressed.

The Oxygen Disorder

    The term oxygen disorder appears throughout this book. Below, I explain the basic oxygen disorder of the September canaries with a simple analogy.

    A car engine mixes fuel and oxygen to produce energy. A properly maintained engine performs without generating excessive toxic exhaust. An engine clogged with soot produces less energy and more toxic fumes. The basic difference between the two is that fuel is completely burned in the first instance, leaving no toxic residue behind, whereas in the second car incomplete combustion leads to generation of excess toxic residue.

    Like the good engine, a healthy person uses oxygen to extract clean energy from his meal. By contrast, a human canary with an oxygen disorder cannot do so without producing excess toxic waste which, in turn, causes fatigue and immune weakness.

    The presence of the oxygen disorder can be easily established by doing urine analysis for toxic acids. 
 
The Terror and Toxicity of the Gulf War
   
    Back in 1991, in the first TV pictures of the Gulf War conflagration,  I recognized the dangerous combination of toxicity and terror. I realized then that the soldiers with hidden weaknesses of the immune system—the human canaries, in my language—would develop chronic and clinically debilitating immune dysfunction. I knew well how those sick persons would become the Gulf War canaries.

    In those pictures, I also saw how the story of the veterans would unfold. Initially, the military doctors would treat them vigorously with deep concern, diligence, and empathy. Congress would be loud in its support for them as well. The military would soon call in civil medical experts to assist and guide them in uncovering the nature of the illness. They would not bother to seek advice from nutritionists and environmental doctors. Within months, medical journals would dub the problem as the Gulf War syndrome and attribute it to stress of the war. Antianxiety pills and antidepressants would be  liberally prescribed. The drugs would be of little help. More journal reports would follow claiming that there is no evidence of chemical or immune injury in the syndrome. Next, some people would pronounce that the syndrome is caused by some microbes and would administer potent—and toxic—antibiotics in large amounts. There would be limited benefits in some cases, but serious long-term consequences in most others.
 
    The victims of the war epidemic would go on to develop many symptom-complexes that would confound medical experts. Their special needs of nutrition would be ignored. The stresses on their bowels, blood, and livers would go unrecognized. The immune injury and oxygen dysfunction inflicted by the war events would be dismissed as an imagined disorder of troubled mi
nds.
