This week on One Cell One Light Radio, returning guest Veronica Hendricks joins Dr. Hildy in the next in a series of discussions relating to the man-made disasters currently ongoing in our nation.

Our attention next turns to the potential danger of Legionnaires’ disease. Also known as legionellosis or Legion fever, Legionnaires’ disease is a form of atypical pneumonia caused by any type of Legionella bacteria. Legionnaires has a wide variety of symptoms: almost all with Legionnaires’ disease experience fever, while approximately half have cough with sputum, and 1/3 cough up blood or bloody sputum. Other symptoms include muscle aches, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite, loss of coordination, chest pain, or diarrhea and vomiting. Up to half of those with Legionnaires have gastrointestinal symptoms, and almost half have neurological symptoms, including confusion and impaired cognition.

Exposure to the Legionella bacteria is of great concern in stagnant water. At low levels of contamination, the chance of getting Legionnaires’ disease from a water source is very slight. The problem arises when high concentrations of the organism grow in water systems. Water heaters, cooling towers, and warm, stagnant water can provide ideal conditions for the growth of the organism.

FLINT MICHIGAN WATERAs with the Porter Ranch gas leak, there is currently another point of toxic concern in the US that is receiving a lot of press. Tap water in Flint, Michigan has been discovered to have toxic levels of lead, due to the city switching water supplies two years ago. The situation has become so dire that President Obama has declared a state of emergency in the area. But lead toxicity is nothing new to the US. In the not-too-distant past, leaded gasoline was a dangerous source of lead. In 1968 alone, 500 million pounds of this metal were released into the atmosphere from gasoline pumps and other sources. Once federal guidelines were established in the 1970’s, lead levels began to fall – by an astronomical 78% during the period from 1976 to 1991.

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, Dr. Ernest P. Chiodo, to discuss the dangers of lead poisoning, and how to detect it.  Our oft-times guest, Film Producer Veronica Hendricks will also join in.

With much in the news about the Porter Ranch gas leak in Southern California, special attention should be paid to the potential toxicity of methane gas exposure. This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy aims to do just that.

Joined by returning guest, Film Producer Veronica Hendricks, Dr. Hildy will outline how exposure to methane is of great concern, for its use as an odorant gas with propane in piped-in gases or container gas to a home or apartment where it will decompose into carbon monoxide and other compounds.

BREAKING NEWS!  – 9/10/15

SUCCESS!  Court overturns EPA’s approval of bee-harming pesticide | TheHill

Now that we are officially living in the Information Age, there is more to know about our world than ever before. Thanks to the invention of the internet and social media, information can be disseminated faster than ever. Which is why it is more important than ever to understand where information is coming from, and what it means. And perhaps there is no subject with more disinformation propagated around the internet than that pertaining to personal health and the government’s involvement in it. 

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guests Dr. Evaggelos Vallianatos, Carol Van Strum, and Rosalind Peterson (Agriculture Defense Coalition) for a discussion and update on our toxic world. 

Throughout their discussion, Dr. Hildy and her guests will discuss the “state of affairs” of various topics, what is being done about them, and what you can do to help. For instance, the recently passed Farmer Assurance Provision, more commonly known as the Monsanto Protection Act. This act directed the Secretary of Agriculture to grant temporary deregulation status at the request of a grower or seed producer, if a biotech crop had already been approved by the USDA and a court reversed that approval, to allow growers to continue the cultivation of the crop while legal challenges to the safety of those crops would still be underway. 

The Monsanto Protection Act is just one of the topics covered. Additionally, Dr. Hildy and her guests will discuss genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and failure to ban them in the US when many European countries already have. Not to mention the ever-controversial issue of vaccination, where our government has required certain vaccinations despite paying out more than 93,000 injury cases related to vaccines. These are just some of the many topics they’ll cover on this week’s episode. 

Join Dr. Hildy and her guests as they discuss our toxic world and what can be done about it on One Cell One Light Radio!

Dear Friend,
I’m outraged that Congress allowed Section 735, the Monsanto Protection Act in a short-term spending bill and passed it and that President Obama has now signed it into law. This is a deep betrayal of our most basic constitutional rights and by signing H.R. 933 without issuing a signing statement or taking other actions to block this provision you have allowed great harm to America’s family farmers, our environment and our democracy.

CHIODO-LAWFIRM

Dr. Ernest P. Chiodo – BRIEFBIOGRAPHY-1-23-2015
Dr. Ernest P. Chiodo – Website

In the 2000 film Erin Brockovich, Julia Roberts plays the titular, real-life legal assistant who nearly single-handedly brings down a California power company accused of polluting a city’s water supply. Although actress Julia Roberts won an Oscar for her performance, these types of cases are not only real, but also prevalent and common. Known as “toxic torts”, they are increasingly common, as more and more negative side effects from long-term exposure to chemicals are discovered and those in charge are held responsible. 

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes her guest, physician, attorney, industrial hygienist, industrial toxicologist and biomedical engineer Ernest P. Chiodo, M.D., J.D., M.P.H., M.S., M.B.A., C.I.H. to discuss these types of cases and more. 

DrErnestPChiodoDr. Chiodo’s law practice has included service as a trial attorney in toxic tort and environmental litigiation, and he has written a book on the subject, Toxic Tort:  Ernest P. Chiodo:  Amazon.com: Books.

Determination of causation of occupational and environmental disease requires knowledge of medicine, epidemiology, toxicology, biostatistics, industrial hygiene, public health, and biomedical engineering.  Dr. Chiodo has formal education and board certifications documenting his expertise in all of these disciplines. In addition, as a practicing attorney, he has knowledge of evidentiary rules including the Federal Daubert Rules for admission of expert testimony. 

People are typically exposed to toxic chemicals from pharmaceuticals, from consumer products, from the environment, in the home, and at work. Most toxic tort cases arise either from exposure to pharmaceutical drugs or occupational exposures. There have also been many occupational toxic tort cases, because industrial and other workers are often chronically exposed to toxic chemicals. Most of the law in this area arises from asbestos exposure. However, thousands of toxic chemicals are used in industry and workers in these areas can experience a variety of toxic injuries.

Join Dr. Hildy and her guest this week as they discuss toxic tort cases, their causes, and what you can do to protect yourself on One Cell One Light Radio!

Chiodo, M.D., J.D., M.P.H., M.S., M.B.A., C.I.H is a physician, attorney, industrial hygienist, industrial toxicologist and biomedical engineer licensed to practice medicine in New York, Michigan, Florida and Illinois as well as law in Michigan and Illinois. Dr. Chiodo provides medical, legal, industrial hygiene, toxicology, biostatistics, epidemiology, and biomedical engineering services from his offices in Metropolitan Detroit and Chicago. He also has a forensic medical office in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Toxic Tort: Ernest P. Chiodo: Amazon.com: BooksToxic Tort:  Ernest P. Chiodo:  Amazon.com: Books
When your legal concern involves dangerous toxins and pesticides, you want to know exactly what you are dealing with.   Attorney and physician Dr. Ernest Chiodo has outlined these concerns in his book, Toxic Tort: Medical and Legal Elements.

This is what former Chairman of the environmental law section of the State Bar of Michigan, Donnelly W. Hadden had to say about the book:

“Dr. Chiodo provides within this book gems of researched law and accepted science polished with the grit of practical courtroom experience. If you do any toxic tort litigation, this book will soon become dog-eared and full of underlined passages. You will always keep it near.”
