Book:  The Remarkable Nutritional Treatment for ADHD, Dyslexia & Dyspraxia  THE LCP SOLUTION by B. Jacqueline Stordy and Malcolm J. Nicholl

Drug used to treat lead, mercury poisoning; often used for autism
2006 The Associated Press
Updated: 2:24 p.m. ET March 2, 2006

ATLANTA - A drug that is sometimes used to treat lead poisoning — and is also believed by some parents to be effective against autism — caused the deaths of two children last year, the government said Thursday.

One youngster was autistic; the other had lead poisoning.

The deaths mark the first documented link between a chelation drug and cardiac arrest in children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Both children were treated with a product called Endrate.

CDC officials are also looking into the 2003 death of a 53-year-old woman in Oregon who was given chelation therapy by a practitioner of natural medicine.

Mary Jean Brown, chief of the CDC’s Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch, said hospital pharmacies should consider whether stocking Endrate is necessary, given its risks and the availability of other treatments.

The maker of Endrate, Hospira Inc., had no immediate comment.

Chelating agents are chemical compounds, injected or given orally, that latch on to metals in the body and carry them out through urine or feces. Chelation is commonly used for lead poisoning...

A drug given to a 5-year-old autistic boy who died during a controversial autism treatment in Butler County should never be administered to children, according to a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The report links three deaths to a drug that was created to purge heavy metals from people's systems through a process called chelation. The drug bonds to the metals so they can be excreted. Though the federal Food and Drug Administration has approved chelation therapy only for treating problems like lead poisoning, some doctors have used it to treat autism, which they theorize is caused by toxins such as mercury.

The government and medical establishment, citing the lack of scientific evidence linking autism to mercury or lead poisoning, reject the treatment for treating children and adults with autism.

Abubakar Nadama, 5, of Monroeville, died of a heart attack in August while receiving chelation therapy intravenously in the office of Dr. Roy E. Kerry at the Advanced Integrated Medicine Center in Portersville.

The Butler County Coroner's Office said the treatment caused Nadama's death, but the CDC report is the first federal acknowledgement of the dangers of using one type of chelation drug called disodium ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid. This agent, under the brand name Endrate, attaches itself not only to heavy metals, but calcium as well, said Mary Jean Brown, chief of the CDC's Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch and an author of the report.

Tiny calcium channels inside the body transmit the bioelectric impulses that make muscles, including the heart, expand and contract. If something takes away that calcium, "it's like you took the wire out of a lamp," Brown said.

"The only acceptable use (of chelation therapy) is to remove heavy metals such as lead," said CDC spokeswoman Karen Hunter. ...

Place for child's play envisioned for Hempfield Township
By Marjorie Wertz
FOR THE TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, February 14, 2007

Two Connellsville women dream of turning the former Greengate Mall Cinema III building, behind the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Hempfield Township, into an interactive play museum for children.

Cindi Swallop, executive director of Expressions of Play Children's Museum, said there is a real need in Westmoreland County for a place where children can use their imaginations to play.

Expressions of Play will be modeled on the Center for Creative Play model, an indoor play environment designed to stimulate the development of children. ..

A caller to C-Span on Nov. 8, 2003, Washington Journal, when Larry Pratt and Richard North Patterson were guests called in to say that the Patriot Act hadn't affected her or anyone she knows.
 
But our question is how would she know if a neighbor has been on vacation for the past two months or in detention? 
 
The government does not have to reveal its detainees' names under the new laws known as the Patriot Act.

Daily Courier: Question of the Day

Do you support the USA Patriot Act, which allows the government to prevent domestic terrorism, even if it means violating your basic civil liberties?

Yes - 36.8%
No - 63.2%
Poll ended on September 2, 2003

Total Votes: 427

While sure, the question is skewed, it's time to show them even small-town America has not only an opinion, but power to prevent government infringement of our unalienable rights, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, and in particular by the Ninth Amendment.

Daily Courier

The poll started out Day 1 with only 26 votes and about 47 percent to 46 percent in favor!

By Day 2 of the Poll, results were smack 50/50. Now, Day 3, look at the numbers.

Day 4, September 1, 2003, some still want to give up those civil liberties, heh?

By poll's end of the day - approximately one-third, just a bit more, willing to give up not only their own civil liberties, but those of everybody else?
