The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is the leading worldwide medical organization dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat age-related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. As a United States federally registered nonprofit medical organization, A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on anti-aging issues. A4M believes that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction, which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human life span can be increased, and the quality of one’s life improved as one grows chronologically older.

Through its Internet presence (www.worldhealth.net), publications, and scientific education programs, A4M shares information concerning innovative science and research as well as treatment modalities designed to prolong the healthy human life span.

We commend you on taking the time to read this book. We hope that you have learned new ways to help you live a long and healthy life. We encourage you to share the health by passing along this book to family members or friends, so they may do the same.

Chapter 21. Emerging Environmental Hazards

Klatz M.D. D.O., Ronald Basic Health Publications ePub

Humankind is at the most important crossroads between environmental influences and health that it has ever faced. History is replete with examples where health hazards demonstrating an association with an external, controllable exposure have been raised based on what seemed, at the time to be unconvincing and inadequate scientific study. Years later, such hazards become well-recognized triggers for disease, robbing thousands of people of their lives or compromising the quality of the lives of those exposed.

Asbestos and lung cancer; lead paint and stunted intellect and behavior in children; contaminated beef and mad cow disease; smoking and lung cancer and heart diseaseall of these associations received dubious skepticism and rejection initially, only to be proven true in the final analysis. This chapter is designed to give you a better understanding of many everyday exposures that can put the length and quality of our lives at risk.

THE BIG BAD WORLD

The majority of us have an immune system that enables us to ward off many of the more common pathogens that are out to make us sick. Many of the microbes you encounter every day are relatively harmless. In fact, they are useful because they force your immune system to react, thereby keeping it healthy and robust. This reaction is called antigenic stimulation.
