Slide 1

Chemicals are Evil A more critical take a gander at the science behind the generally held conviction that " common " is sheltered and " manufactured " causes malignancy Brent Iverson, UT Chemistry Dept.

Slide 2

Dangerous Chemical Causes suffocation when breathed in into lungs, executing a great many individuals every year, frequently youthful youngsters. In vaporous state, will bring about fatal smolders. Damages and slaughters thousands every year along these lines, regularly youthful youngsters. Real segment of tumor cells. In the earth, this concoction causes more annihilation of human lives, property, and natural life than every single other substance joined.

Slide 3

Take home lessons Most of the world trusts that normal means protected and manufactured causes malignancy, despite the fact that they are obviously both similarly risky in view of creature tests. It has been exceptionally productive ($10 + $4 billion) to offer characteristic options in businesses, for example, natural sustenances and home grown cures. So far,when tried, the science to a great extent does not bolster these choices on the premise of wellbeing concerns alone. Better testing systems are expected to give more reasonable hazard evaluations.

Slide 4

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "characteristic" means safe?

Slide 5

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "regular" means safe? Is it since manufactured chemicals cause more growth? In the first place, we have to clarify how chemicals are tried for malignancy: Toxicity Test: Rodents (mice, rats, guinea pigs) are encouraged expanding dosages of a concoction to discover most extreme measurements that is endured by the creature without bringing on death from harming - called "greatest endured dosage" (MTD) Cancer Test: Multiple creatures are bolstered MTD of particle for a timeframe and the creatures are inspected for tumors

Slide 6

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "normal" means safe? Is it since engineered chemicals cause more malignancy? 3. Measurement Test: Chemicals that cause tumors at MTD may be weakened to discover focus at which a large portion of the creatures get tumors. This distinguishes extremely intense mixes. 4. Establishment of Exposure Risk: Different methodologies here, yet most normal is to take the MTD or the focus decided in 3. what\'s more, separation by 1,000,000 to give a rule for human introduction.

Slide 7

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "normal" means safe? Is it since manufactured chemicals cause more tumor? For manufactured chemicals tried in both mice and rats: 271/451 cause malignancy tumors 60% Ames, et al ., Mutation Research, 2000, 447, 3-13

Slide 8

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "regular" means safe? Is it since manufactured chemicals cause more disease? For engineered chemicals tried in both mice and rats: 271/451 cause malignancy tumors 60% For common chemicals tried in both mice and rats: 79/139 cause growth tumors 57% Ames, et al ., Mutation Research, 2000, 447, 3-13

Slide 9

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "regular" means safe? Is it since engineered chemicals cause more malignancy?

Slide 10

Why does everybody fear chemicals and trust "regular" means safe? Is it since manufactured chemicals cause more tumor? Ames, et al ., Mutation Research, 2000, 447, 3-13

Slide 11

Where are we? Half of all chemicals tried cause malignancy in the rat test whether engineered or regular. Is it true that we are in risk? Likely not. Not very many atoms cause disease at the low levels we are presented to normally.* *The special cases are a couple of infamous instances of laborer introduction, for example, ethylenedibromide, benzopyrene, carbon tetrachloride, and so on 2. Malignancy rates are NOT rising* and fundamental growth rates are associated with age. Malignancy IS PROBABLY A NORMAL CONSEQUENCE OF AGING, JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER KNOWN PROBLEMS SUCH AS GRAY HAIR, VISION LOSS, DROOPING FEATURES, ETC. *The special cases are lung tumor and skin malignancy rates, which are expanding because of conduct (smoking and sunburns).

Slide 12

Where are we? Half of all chemicals tried cause disease in the rat test whether manufactured or normal. Is it true that we are in peril? Shocking conclusion: Within blunder, all tumors can be represented through a mix of conduct (smoking, sunbathing to overabundance, dietary patterns) and regular maturing. In this way, there is no measurable legitimacy to the affirmation that our debased surroundings is bringing about tumor in people. Shocking conclusion: It is vital to tidy up tainting chemicals in the earth to maintain a strategic distance from natural life poisonous quality, however human tumor rates are probably not going to change altogether even in a flawless situation.

Slide 13

Calibration: Even substantial espresso consumers don\'t drink enough of these chemicals to represent a genuine risk and NO tumor connect has been found with espresso. Where are we? Half of all chemicals tried cause tumor in the rat test whether engineered or characteristic. It is safe to say that we are in peril? Ames, et al ., Mutation Research, 2000, 447, 3-13

Slide 14

Case History: Benzopyrene from meat on a grill Natural particles can get to be risky amid sustenance planning!

Slide 15

Does our eating routine place us in threat? Half of all chemicals tried cause growth in the rat test whether engineered or common. It is safe to say that we are in risk? Amazing determination: A connection amongst\'s eating regimen and disease has been found: an absence of specific vitamins (particularly folic corrosive) in unfortunate weight control plans (among poor people) prompts 4-crease increment in growth! This is likely because of the devastating of normal malignancy battling systems. Astonishing conclusion: There is dependably requests of greatness more "sustenance" particles in nourishment then pesticide deposit. Since they are devoured in much bigger sums, the common chemicals represent a far more serious danger of bringing about malignancy than the little measure of pesticide buildup on even unwashed deliver!

Slide 16

Scaled for presentation levels and relative power in the rat test, pesticides from unwashed nourishment are requests of extent less perilous in an ordinary solid eating regimen contrasted with the common chemicals in the sustenance.

Slide 17

Billions of dollars are spent on altogether more expensive natural nourishments - frequently in an exertion by purchasers to keep away from pesticide deposit however to date the science does not bolster this. It is improbable the expanded utilization of natural sustenances will diminish malignancy rates Organic Trade Association 2004 Market Overview

Slide 18

Billions of dollars are spent on essentially more exorbitant natural nourishments - regularly in an exertion by buyers to maintain a strategic distance from pesticide buildup however to date science does not bolster this Salmonella and different unsafe microbes including E. coli 0157:H7 are available around homestead creatures, and sully meat items. They are wiped out through legitimate cooking temperatures. Natural deliver is for the most part prepared utilizing ranch creature compost. Since deliver is not cooked, this can be a huge wellspring of bacterial nourishment harming. A late study discovered 22.4% of naturally developed lettuce tainted with E. coli . Wash your lettuce! Mukherjee, et al ., J. Nourishment Prot., 2004, 67, 894-900

Slide 19

Case History: Dioxin is regular side effect of bug spray generation. A standout amongst the most intense tumor framing chemicals ever tried in Guinea pigs! Works however solid collaboration with estrogen receptors in guinea pigs. In spite of sensational reputation in actuality, logical studies neglected to discover connect presentation to human disease in spite of the fact that it is a poison. Human estrogen receptors are not the same as those in guinea pigs! Victor Yuschenko of the Ukraine

Slide 20

Where are we? Half of all chemicals tried cause growth in the rat test whether manufactured or regular. It is safe to say that we are in threat? Astonishing conclusion: It is broadly trusted that the rat test can distinguish hazardous mixes, however it additionally can overestimate peril since: Rodents have distinctive natural chemistry contrasted with people. The MTD utilized causes poisonous quality, prompting cell stretch/passing, activating fast cell division that makes tumor more probable. i.e. numerous watched rat tumors are a consequence of lethality, not malignancy bringing about potential

Slide 21

Although they are significant guineas pigs, rodents are not people and there are even various contrasts between various rat examines

Slide 22

Good news! The FDA has quite recently declared new rules for surveying hazard. The new rules concentrate on institutionalized systems and more basic investigations utilizing the most recent science to better recognize false positives from really risky mixes. It is still not clear how to assess any conceivable impacts of low levels of presentation or to sanely set reasonable introduction limits.

Slide 23

Are advanced medications less powerful or potentially more hazardous than common natural cures?

Slide 24

Herbal Remedies versus Drugs Herbal cures speak to a $4 billion industry. History: Drug organizations have since a long time ago utilized people cures got from plants as a beginning stage for recognizing new medications. Dynamic fixings are distinguished, cleaned, contemplated and sold as medications. Illustrations incorporate headache medicine (from willow bark) and digoxin (from the foxglove plant) The upside of single dynamic chemicals as medications is that they can be produced and concentrated on as reproducibly unadulterated materials. Home grown cures can\'t be concentrated on or made with similar level of reproducibility if the essential fixings have not been recognized.

Slide 25

Herbal Remedies versus Drugs The FDA sedate endorsement prepare 10 years and $800 Million. All metabolites of a medication should likewise be tried at this point. All medication fabricating must take after exceptionally strict General Manufacturing Practices (GMP) conventions. http://www.fda.gov/cder/handbook/develop.htm

Slide 26

Case History: Seldane and Allegra Seldane proclaimed as first non-lazy antihistamine. Exhibited to be sheltered through FDA testing. Patients began passing on from heart inconveniences!?! Examination uncovered 1) Seldane quickly changed over by chemical (cyt P 450 ) in body to Allegra. 2) Allegra is really the successful and safe antihistamine. 3) Seldane is actua
