Format: Paperback
Dancing Cats Silent Canaries is the story of the medical career of Dr. David Denton Davis, and how it parallels his thinking of how toxins can contribute to SIDS and Autism leading to his philisophical idea of the precautionary principle. The precautionary principle in simple laymans terms means that due caution and care must be given to children and infants if there is any risk of them being harmed. It is somewhat similiar to the naturopaths credo first do no harm.

Davis cut his teeth during the turbulent 60's, and served his country in the Navy as a physician. After serving in the Navy Dr. Davis M.D. realized the need for creating a specialty in emergency medicine which before this was somewhat disorganized with patients being driven in to hospitals and physicians. Ambulances were not frequentley used during this era, and many improvements could be made if emergency medicine became a specialty. Eventually the AMA allowed the specialty with great benefit to the patients who were now seeing better organized emergency centers with doctors highly trained in the specialty.

One Dramatic story in the book which influenced the doctors thinking was a child that came into him suffering with seizures. Davis orders a lead level on spinal fluid which ends up being off the chart for lead. In the beginning of the book Davis covers much of the history of toxins and illness including the toxic Paris Green Wallpaper which gave off a lethal gas when mildewed because when the arsenic in the wall paper mixed with the fungus from the mildex a toxic gas is created. Dr. Davis tells the various stories of scientist who carried out the experiments that show that when fungus from mildew mixes with arsenic, and antimony that it can cause toxic gases to form.
