Quotes on Suffering from PBB: An American Tragedy, by Edwin Chen, circa 1979

The complaints of the known-PBB-poisoned crops, farm animals, humans, and lab animals. I share this because I think learning through human experience is the fastest way to absorb infromation.

All quotes pulled drectly from the book;

Chen, Edwin. (1979). PBB: An American Tragedy. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Prentice-Hall.

  • “A cow in front of him looked as if she had been crying. Tears were streaking down her cheeks. He checked her for other infections, especially pinkeye. He resumed down the barn alley. He encountered another tear-streaked face. And then another. And another.” (p.6)
  • “There’s no reason for these cattle to have IBR (a flulike disease which can cause abortions in cattle),” said the stoop shouldered animal doctor. “I vaccinated them all myself and the vaccines came from several suppliers so we can’t blame it on a bad batch of vaccine. But I’ll be hanged if I know what it is. These cattle don’t act like any I’ve ever seen before.

Herbicide Sensitivities

Herbicide Sensitivities


I recommend NO PREGNANT women or immuno-compromised people attend school the same days as pesticide applications.


“I have meant to write many times when I’ve seen pesticides are going to be used on the school grounds. Today I am thankful to have the time to ask some questions and share my personal knowledge. I promise to keep this as brief as possible (and technical terminology to a minimum).

The local areas, throughout the past 100 years, have been exposed numerous times to intense chemical contaminations. Each time, in the months after, the communities downstream of these mistakes get sick. Our repeated exposure to a family of chemicals, known as endocrine disruptors, creates havoc in our bodies. They also act as carcinogens, neurotoxins, reproductive toxins, and sensitizers.

Well known examples of endocrine disruptors:

DDT, Agent Orange, PCB, PBB, BPA, PCE etc.

There have been MANY times corporations have chosen to allow this community to be poisoned.  · · · →

Emory PBB Registry Meeting

Emory PBB Registry Meeting

Wednesday, April 18, in St. Louis, MI

Organizers: Pine River Superfund Citizen Task Force

They have are the driving force we should thank because they keep the PBB problem from the deepest of back burners.

Meeting Guest: Emory University’s Michele Marcus

Emory of Atlanta, GA, along side the Michigan Department of Health, are the keepers of our family health histories and data. The agenda was to discuss the Michigan PBB Database research and to recruit people to donate their blood for their research.

My personal agenda was to meet others passionate regarding PBB and to ask the researchers VERY specific scientific questions that my research has been unable to answer.

My scientific background includes laboratory technician positions at the Mayo Clinic, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and Amway. I have also worked in cleaning, mechanical, process, and equipment validation. This month my research had been trying to answer one question, “How do we get back to good once we realize we’re still reeling from PBB?  · · · →

My Family’s Current Plan

My Family’s Current Plan

“How do I get my body working better without spending much?”



I have created an Amazon Wishlist for you to easily find the products I recommend so you can get them into your home as soon as possible. I’m convinced these items should help us clean our bodies of old, settled problem contaminants, while decreasing the daily amount we consume/inhale/absorb.

I created an Amazon Wishlist with three purposes (I make NO MONEY from purchases made):
First; an easy reference of items I highly recommend for those looking to make a purchase for personal use.

Second; for those generous enough to donate, so I can more easily help people in the community (without it becoming a financial burdon on my family). I love helping people.  · · · →

PBB Contamination 101

The Walking Dead has opened my eyes to what happened to America’s culture in a way I never expected. (No Spoilers)

  • “’The decision was made a long time ago. Before any of us knew each other. We were all strangers who would have just passed each other on the street before the world ended. But now we mean everything to each other. You were in trouble. You were trapped. Glenn didn’t know you but he helped you. He put himself in danger for you. And that started it all. From Atlanta, to my daddy’s farm, to the prison, to here. To this moment now – not as strangers; as family – because Glenn chose to be there for you, that day a long time ago – that was the decision that changed everything. It started with both of you and it just grew, all of this: to sacrifice for each other, to suffer and stand, to grieve, to give, to love, to live, to fight for each other.
