WHAT IS EXPECTED? PANDEMICS OF ANIMAL DISEASES (MAD COW, FOOT & MOUTH, BIRD & PIG INFLUENZA) & HUMAN DISEASES/DYSFUNCTION (SARS, LYME, WEST NILE VIRUS, PESTICIDE & CHEMICALLY-INDUCED MISCARRIAGES, ADHD, CANCERS, HIV/AIDS, EBOLA, MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE, INFERTILITY, MCS/METABOLIC SYNDROME, LUPUS, etc) By Murray Thompson (BAppSci Environmental Health 1998, University of Western Sydney) http://poisoningandlegalaction.com.au http://poisonedpeople.com http://indiegogo.com/poisoned-people http://murraythompsongraphics.x90x.net Essay URL: http://poisonedpeople1.wordpress.com/2012/10/14/pandemic/ Short link: http://wp.me/s2DVqC-pandemic Diseases today are a factor of the meshing of many dynamics. 1.0 Foundational Precursors of Future Events Here are some of the prominent factors now bringing about a rapid alteration of older, long-time established disease patterns: 1. The doubling of global population before 2015. 2. From 1990 to 2020 developing countries will see the proportion of their total populations that inhabit urban areas increase from approximately 37% to 52%. 3. Globally (in developing and developed countries), health problems as a function of environmental pollution are likely to amplify. 4. Environmental change, as a function of increasing global temperatures, will occur. 5. Zoonotic disease [inter-species infectious diseases] patterns will change. There is an increasing incidence of newly recognized or emerging, or re-emerging older diseases. Alterations of the natural environment, including the replacement of formerly uninhabited areas with human settlements [see my Essay: http://poisonedpeople1.wordpress.com/2012/10/14/many-diseases-come-from-a-disturbed-nature/], are prominent causes here. Also, greater demands for animal protein, intensive animal production, and an amplification of the live animal trade (including animal products) are contributors (World Health Organization 2002:10). 6. As a further expansion of the third point above, there is the matter of pesticide and other chemically-induced and/or aggravated disease. First: "In the United States, more than 18,000 products are licensed for use, and each year > 2 billion pounds of pesticides are applied to crops, homes, schools, parks, and forests" (Kamel & Hoppin, 2004). • Cancers, foetal death, miscarriages, premature births (NCAP, 1999:3; Bonn, 2005; Cox, 2004) and ADHD (Cox, 2004) are all now linked to pesticides. Further: "Animal data and in-vitro work suggest that chronic pesticide exposures might be tied to learning and behavioral problems, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other neuropsychological deficits" (Ashley, et al. 2006:7, citing Chanda et al., 1996; Rice et al., 2000). • There are increased stillbirth rates with proximity to agricultural areas using organophosphate - pyrethroid carbamate - or chlorinated pesticides (Sinclair & Pressinger, no date, citing Bell, et al., 2001). • Pesticides are strongly linked to birth defects (Montague, 2001).

• Autoimmune diseases: The findings of a study linked environmental pesticide exposure to the development of autoimmune rheumatic diseases (Parks.• "Two separate studies in Sweden have linked exposure to Glyphosate to Hairy Cell Leukemia and Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. These types of cancers were extremely rare. multiple chemical sensitivities. Hardell & Eriksson. irritant. and can cause kidney and liver damage" (BeyondPesticides. et al. Kale et al. et al.

Pesticide exposure may also be associated with increased risk of Parkinson disease. 2007 citing Cox. 1995. In brief summary at this point: "Most tragically. including glyphosate" (Leu. also known as chemical intolerance. especially with respect to cognitive functions (Rice and Barone. including insecticides. 2007 also linked Roundup to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. and organochlorine and carbamate insecticides. 7. and the recent exposition of the link between Acetaminophen (paracetamol) use. 2000. toxoplasmosis (protozoan) infection.

Another study has found a higher incidence of Parkinson disease amongst farmers who used herbicides.. 2008). bacterial infection. 2004). Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has been linked to "viral infection.. And we have not here even begun to touch upon a whole other world of disease pain in terms of medicationinduced disease. 1999). In addition to inhibiting nerve transmission.. in particular. but some found neuro-toxic effects from other pesticides.. and autistic disorder: "Acetaminophen use after measles-mumps-rubella vaccination was significantly associated with autistic disorder when considering children 5 years of age or less" (Schultz.

It has risen by 73% in the USA since 1973. however Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma is the most rapidly increasing cancer in the Western world. suggesting that POPs may play a key role in their pathogenesis" (Lee. carbon monoxide exposure. Roundup is also now shockingly linked to Mad Cow's Disease (Rotella 2003). 1998. have suggested that neurotoxic effects can be expected from low dose/chronic exposures. several classes of pesticides. have been implicated" (Kamel & Hoppin. 1998:38). 1997).. • MCS: "Multiple chemical sensitivity (1) (MCS). measles-mumps-rubella vaccination. and has been found to kill human embryonic cells. 2006:7). 2000. and Metabolic Syndrome: "Recent epidemiological studies have found that background exposure to persistent organic pollutants (POPs)—xenobiotics accumulated in adipose tissue—is associated with type 2 diabetes.given the toxicity of all insecticides toward some component of the nervous system (both central and peripheral nervous systems). 2008). 1998. suffering. it is believed that children are a vulnerable. We have banished some diseases only to have them replaced by a grumbling yet profound toxicity which is stripping our children of their rightful future" (Donohoe. insulin resistance. 1991). citing Vigfusson & Vyse. These functions are critical to proper neurological development. 1980. fumigants. including fungicides. • Children. Extensive mammalian studies of organophosphate toxicity. • Motor neurone disease: "Most studies have focused on organophosphate insecticides.
this immunosuppression is fatally backed by antibiotic resistance. they have been "pre-armed" with chemical resistance and are now releasing into indigenous (and other) human communities that are infectiously compliant due to broad immunosuppression. burgdorferi was identified by Willy Burgdorfer" (http://en. It was first discovered in the United States in the summer of 1999 in New York" (National Center for Biotechnology Information 2010). especially.

"West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne zoonotic arbovirus" (http://en.

"West Nile virus was first identified in 1937 in Uganda in eastern Africa. It is a slate wiper in humans. Thus. with 8. Changing human disease patterns will be impacted by "high population densities. Infectious diseases will remain the major causes of mortality in most developing countries. A global and aberrant overpopulation dynamic saturated in chemical toxicants is leading an accelerating and catastrophic wave of incursion into forested and other natural areas. thanks to modern transport. The kill rate in humans for Ebola Zaire is nine out of ten.2. As well. And these may be "nothing" in comparison to a filovirus called "Ebola"." (http://en. in terms of intersection.

"Although Allen Steere [professor of rheumatology at Harvard University] realized that Lyme disease was a tickborne disease in 1978. Affected in what way? Viruses locked away deep in nature have been "washed" for decades by air pollution. movements of human populations within and between countries. What we are witnessing today is a massive and global synergy of immunosuppression (on a basis of profligate toxic chemical usage) and disease emergence and amplification. What I did not address in this particular Essay is the resulting immunosuppression amongst the 'locals'. the cause of the disease remained a mystery until 1981. and changes in lifestyles [consider war and refugee movements here.wikipedia.
