Top Customer Reviews
Long story short, after a building fire, years of illegal building with no safety standards when highly toxic chemicals were used, as well as exposures in poorly equipped arts (old printing the worst) I ended up nearly dead. I remembered this article and friend who was taking care of me contacted him. He sent me a huge packet of information, contact with chemical injury MD Dr. Grace Ziem and his wish that I recover - no charge.
These chemicals btw are in many of your common personal/household products - remember the pharmaceuticals often make highly toxic products. Learn to read a MSDS (material safety data sheet) (perfumes mostly made out of left over petro sludge)..
Highly recommend this book - and a fantastic wonderful man to have assisted me so long ago!
