Chemicals: Dangers & Deceptions

First Half: Between 2005 and 2009, the bodies of eight women were discovered around the murky canals of a bayou town in Louisiana, leading local law enforcement officials to pursue a serial killer theory. Author and investigator Ethan Brown joins George Knapp to discuss how these homicides were not the work of a serial killer, but the violent fallout a brutal sex and drug trade and a backwoods underworld hidden in plain sight.

Second Half: Andrew Cohen is one of the most controversial spiritual teachers of the last thirty years. In 2013, his organization EnlightenNext collapsed amidst claims of abuse and the shocking revelation it had been a cult. Alex Howard, the founder of Conscious 2, and director Meagen Gibson will discuss a new 6-part television series which investigates the danger of unchecked power in the hands of a charismatic leader, and how this co-existed alongside genuine spiritual awakening.

Chemicals: Dangers & Deceptions

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - June 20, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Randall Fitzgerald, Robert Trombley, Daniel Durda

Investigative reporter Randall Fitzgerald believes that the interaction of synthetic chemicals is wreaking havoc on human health and weakening people's immune systems. "We're all guinea pigs" in a vast chemical experiment, he said, arguing that western medicine is based on a synthetic paradigm in which ailments are treated by non-natural drugs that cause side effects, which in turn need to be remedied by more medications.

He pointed out deceptions in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and shared his findings:

  • Animal studies are not reliable predictors of human health issues.
  • Water purification plants don't remove synthetic chemicals, thus drugs like Ritalin and Prozac are found in the groundwater supply.
  • The real threat from synthetic chemicals is from their synergistic and cumulative effects on the human body.
  • The umbilical cord doesn't protect the fetus from chemicals nor does the liver protect from toxins.
  • The FDA has not ensured that pharmaceuticals are safe.

Fitzgerald said there are a number of things a person can do to deal with living in a toxic environment:

  • Limit your exposure to chemicals of all types (this requires taking an inventory of your situation).
  • Get tested for chemical exposure, especially if overweight.
  • Develop your own detox strategy.
  • Resources for this include the Hippocrates Health Institute and the Optimum Health Institute.

Asteroids & Volcanoes

Appearing briefly at the start of the show, planetary scientist Dan Durda commented on an Earth protection plan, to deflect incoming asteroids using other asteroids. Because of the labor intensiveness of such a scheme, he declared it to be impractical.

Volcanologist R.B. Trombley joined the show during the first half hour to report on volcanoes in the Philippines and Indonesia. He also discussed the possibility of an eruption at Yellowstone.
