  1. Thank you Beth and David for bringing this most important issue to light! While i have been “Improving Every Year!” I too have become acutely sensitive to toxic environments. I recall not being able to sleep in my bedroom for days when I had new wall-to-wall caret installed. Now I have all tile floors!
    There is no question that the youth are most affected by our inadequacy to place health and well being over profit! Illusions of safetry need to be banished. Instead of complaing about problems with the health and education of our children, we need to learn what is scientifically proven “to work” both internally and externally and move toward incorporating it into our everyday lifestyles!
    In other words for our very future we need to respect nature!
