Chlordine Causes Cancer

Chlordine and other Toxic Pesticides Cause Cancer

I urge you to see the movie ‘Erin Brockovich’, which is a true story of a conspiracy by manufacturers of a chlordine poison, and the devastating effects which its use had on people’s health, affecting families and communities.  Erin Brockovich fought and won the case against the makers of the poison, and got reparation to help some of the families involved.

The important message of this post is to promote awareness of the many  dangerous and harmful  new poisons which are being manufactured all the time for general use. Just remember that anything which kills insects, hedgehogs, or weeds, will also have the potential to harm you and your pets and environment.

Old, harmful poisons are often marketed with a fresh new name, to dupe the user into believing, for a while, that the new poison is better, and safer.  One such example is ‘RoundUp’, which WHO have declared is a probable cause of cancer:  The new name for glyphosate weedkiller is now, in October, 2017, is G360.  But G360 has the same health-destroying poison in it as ‘RoundUp’, which is  glyphosate.

We can’t say for sure exactly how any poison is going to affect a human life, or an animal’s, however,  anything which is classified as a poison has the potential to kill life, and will affect all insects, animals, fish, and people, to some extent.

All man-made toxic pesticides and herbicides should be banned. Of course, chemical companies who manufacture these poisons will say that they are safe, that is, until it is proven otherwise for a fact.  But why wait for the proof?

I know women of New Zealand who have suffered miscarriages within a short time after having houses fumigated professionally by insect exterminators. One family got back the exterminators to do another round of spraying because the first application of poison had not quite killed off all the insects: and this is when the first miscarriage occurred.

My uncle in Australia suffered a paralysis which doctors could not diagnose, and from which he never recovered.  He, too, had requested that the house be fumigated for the second time because he had spotted an insect or two still alive after the first spraying event.

This mysterious paralysis struck him down, literally, whilst the spray man was physically  ‘treating’ the house for the second time. My uncle spent weeks recovering in hospital, while doctors tried to diagnose the illness he had. Nobody questioned the possiblity that he had had the house fumigated with the most potent of insecticedes, one which was guaranteed to last for three years.  This happened well after the time of chlordine being banned, but this poison, whatever it was, was obviously just as bad in its harmful effects on the physical body.

My aunt had a serious decline in mental health at the same time, and was diagnosed later with alzheimer’s. Her sudden mental decline occurred at the same time as my uncle’s parylisis, with the spraying event.  She has never recovered.

I had visited the family on an earlier occasion,  about three weeks after insecticide had been professionally sprayed about the house. It was so toxic that I had to sleep out on the lawn on a camp bed during the whole time of my visit.  Fortunately this was Queensland in the summer time, so there was no rain.

So, while I have no ‘research’ to confirm  facts about the type of spray used in  my uncle’s poisoning, my aunt’s alzheimer’s, and the miscarriages of my friends, my own experience and my observations cause me to pronouce the  judgement that  it was definitely the pesticide  that did it.

The case with Chlordine, DDT, and 245T is a different story:  it is now proven that these chemicals are extremely harmful to health. The consequences were such that, eventually, these seriously dangerous chemicals were banned.  I wonder how many people have  had to suffer serious disease, or death, as a consequence of chlordine, or DDT, or 245T use over the years before  they were  finally banned?

Chlordine is not used any more as a pesticide.  It was banned in April 1988 in America.  However:

Chemical Exposure to Chlordine is still occurring in many households in New Zealand, in America, and in other countries where chlordine ‘bombs’ were once used to rid houses of unwanted insects such as ants and cockroaches.

This is because chlordine still remains in the woodwork, in the drapes, and in the furnishings.

Dr Toni Jeffreys has much to say about Chlordine contamination which has resulted in people getting cancer well after the event of Chlordine being banned. She cites a case where a young family bought a villa and used chlordane  as a pesticide to kill all the insects hiding in the woodwork.

This family grew most of their food organically, but they were breathing in the fumes from the pesticide daily.  This was thought to be the cause of the husband’s death ten or so years after the initial use of the pesticide.  He suffered kidney cancer, which developed into a widely disseminated cancer.

Dr Toni Jeffrey’s  book is The Cancer Conspiracy, which was published in 2000 by Crows Nest Books, P.O. Box 607 Warkworth New Zealand 1241.

Causes of Breast Cancer

Causes of Breast Cancer

Many articles will tell you that the causes of breast cancer are unknown. Some doctors will tell you that breast cancer is hereditary. However, there are some  chemicals and some factors which are known to contribute towards people succumbing to breast cancer.


X Ray radiation of the chest area in childhood, or during youth, can cause breast cancer to develop later in a woman’s life.

The women who were exposed to the Hiroshima bomb succumbed more easily to breast cancer, and other cancers,  than women of the same generation who were not irradiated.

Your health can suffer, and your immune system beomome damaged, because of living, or working, too close to electricity transformers, meter boxes, cell phone towers,  overhead power lines, sleeping next to power sources, and over use of  cell phones.

Toxic Chemicals Contaminate Environment

For most people, the main risk factors in getting breast cancer lie in the fact that so many toxic chemicals are widely used in our environments and our homes.

Petro-chemicals can cause breast cancer, and other cancers, to develop.

Organo-chlorides which are  found in many herbicides, and pesticides, are known to have a carcinogen effect, especially in  the forming of breast, ovarian and uterine cancers.

Herbicides, widely used by councils in spraying whole areas at a time, which they will call a spraying  ‘programme’, are a real threat to adults, and even more  to children who often walk these sprayed areas to get to and from school, or to the school bus. Even if we are not actively walking in these areas, the spray drift is affecting all those who live in the area.

Herbicide use in public areas should definitely be banned, for the sake of all. The risk is just too great. Our children may be in fairly good health now, but these poisons will affect the health of many children in later life, and predispose them to cancer and other disease related to  immune disfunction.

Toxins such as Propylene Glycol, Dioxin, which is found in 245T, or Agent Orange, DDT, 24D, Roundup, and many other herbicides and insecticides are all thought to increase cancer risk. Some of these chemicals are now banned, such as DDT. However, DDT  still remains in the soils where it was used, and these residues still find their way into our food chain.

245T, which is now banned, was known to affect the genetic structure of humans. This has resulted in deformities of children, who may be at risk of having deformed children themselves, since 245T affects the genes.

We who protested against the use of 245T, or ‘agent orange’ in the 1970’s were told by government authorities in New Zealand that it was not proven that this chemical caused cancer, or deformities, or anything else, and so its use would be continued here.

Actually, the effects of 2,4,5,T and 2,4,D, WERE known – the effects of using ‘Agent Orange’ , a combination of the two chemicals, in Viet Nam proved how harmful it was. It was banned in all other western countries long before New Zealand banned it, because Dow chemicals  (Ivan Watkins Dow) were making the stuff here, at New Plymouth, New Zealand.

After aerial spraying over our house and stream which was our water source, I became very ill.  I was around six months pregnant at the time.  Friends advised to go and see the local doctor in the Hokianga, so that my case should be recorded as being caused by 2,4,5,T.  Hopefully, we thought, a register of all ill-health related to 2,4,5,T was being kept.

But, instead of recording my ill-health as the after-math of aerial 2,4,5,T spraying, the doctor told me I was imagining I was ill.  I was a hypochondriac, he said, because there was no proof that 2,4,5,T caused any harm to human beings.  He failed to record my case of 2,4,5,T related symptoms – breathing difficulties, asthma-like symptoms, feeling nauseous all the time, bone pains, and having literally no energy to do the simplest task.

Six months later, my baby had died.  And around four or five years later, I had a breast lump which my doctor advised to have biopsied.

Instead of trusting any more medical people, or scientists, I decided to cure the thing myself.  This was when I discovered, first, Walter Last, the Whangarei healer, and then the Dr Gerson therapy for cancer.  Both these healers, in their own way, helped me recover.

Common sense must prevail. Don’t wait for chemicals to be banned after they have wreaked havoc in the environment, and killed people.  Avoid them NOW, and protect your children’s health, as well as your own.

Harmful Chemicals in Personal Care Products

Many harmful chemicals are used in cosmetics and personal care products, and even baby products. Dioxin is one chemical which is still to be found in some under-arm deodorants, among other cosmetic products.

The chemical list of carcenogens is extensive and lengthy. The simple  message is that you should avoid ALL the chemicals that you can. Learn how to live without them. Learn how to manage weeds and insects by natural means. If you can’t, then learn how to live with the weeds instead, as they will most likely benefit your health, whereas  toxic herbicides won’t.

Toxic Chemicals are in Our Clothing Fabrics

These days, much of our clothing, including our underwear,  is made cheaply in China, and this means that very often, the fabrics are synthetic, petroleum-based products. These synthetic fabrics contain many chemicals which adversely affect the health.  Often, cheap dyes are used in clothing made in China: Many of the dyes used to dye fabric and leather contain excessive amounts of formaldehyde, which is a carcenogen. These chemicals are readily absorbed through the pores of your skin, and into your body, where they can be stored. These stored chemicals are a potential risk in getting cancer.

The Bra Restricts Blood and Lymph

The Wearing of the bra in order to keep a perfect shape might contribute towards some women developing breast cancer. It is thought that the wearing of a tight bra around the whole of the chest and breast area could contribute to cancerous conditions setting in, because the bra restricts the blood and energy flow. The bra stops the lymph from travelling freely about the body, locking it in around the breast area. This means that drainage of waste products from the chest area will be blocked, because the lymph cannot carry them away efficiently.

The Contraceptive Pill or Injection

Contraceptives interfere with your body’s hormone production and regulation, which is why the contraceptive is a risk factor in getting cancer. It also robs the body of certain nutrients, which is another negative factor. There are many  other medications which  can contribute towards cancer and other degenerative disease, but the contraceptive  pill or injection probably poses the biggest threat, as it is taken long term, and this  means that your hormonal system is continually being interfered with, long term.

Innoculations Lower Your Immunity:

Innoculations for diseases like  influenza, whooping cough, tetanus, diphtheria and the like,  actually reduce your immunity. They might protect you against one outbreak of flu, or some other disease, but at the risk of getting more severe diseases in later life. Children who have had the range of injections for various diseases in childhood will have an immune system which is severly weakened, which will predispose them to immune function diseases like cancer, including  breast cancer, arthritis, and  multiple sclerosis, in later years.

Personally, after my eldest child was affected adversely by a series of injections in childhood, I refused to take part in this innoculation charade. There are other options, like homeopathy, vitamin therapy, acupuncture, and herbal medecine which prevent diseases and work cures. However, there is a place for everything: get advice from your doctor or homeopath  before you decide NOT to go for that innoculation which everybody is racing to get.

Alcohol, Marijuana, and Cigarettes

Women who drink more than two glasses of alcohol per day are twice as likely to get breast cancer, or some other form of cancer, than women who rarely drink. Marijuana smokers, and cigarette smokers, also double their chances of getting breast cancer, and other cancers, including lung cancer.

Nutritional Deficiencies Can Cause Cancer

Give yourself and your family a diet which is high in all the necessary nutrients. Ensure that you eat plenty of foods which are rich in  Iodine and Calcium. These are both essential to good health and to preventing cancer. Make sure that every meal contains plenty of Roughage . Roughage is the other essential factor in preventing cancer.

Remember the three  cancer preventers – Roughage – Iodine – Calcium.

Avoid Processed Foods which have Chemical Additives

Processed foods contain many chemicals which are hazardous to the health, especially if you eat a lot of this food. These chemicals build up in the body, until one day – boomph – some disease ‘hits’ you, like breast cancer. Detoxifying diets, or the castor oil treatment taken once a week, are ways in which you can reduce the toxins in your body, to help prevent cancer.

Other Things to Do to Prevent Breast Cancer

Give up smoking. Limit, or give up alcohol. Give up all drugs unless it is a medication which your life depends on.

You can remove your bra when you get home from work. You can make sure that it is made of cotton, rather than a synthetic material, and that it is not too tight.

Well wash that new bra before beginning to wear it.

Try to wear cotton fabrics rather than anything synthetic. This is especially  important for fabrics which touch the skin. Again, well wash any new item of clothing before you begin to wear it.

You can take measures to detoxify the body, so that any toxic residues which have built up in your body get eliminated over time. Days on the apple diet, or the castor oil cleanse used once a week, will help your body to detoxify. You can help your children’s health by giving them mainly apples to eat on certain days of the week, as this will help them to detoxify as well.

You can throw out all the chemicals – all the herbicides and insecticides which you have about your house. You can check your make-up. Throw out all dubious products. Give up hair dye and nail polish – these contribute to cancer.
