  • https://www.drthrasher.org/reyes-syndrome DrThrasher_Reyes Syndrome - Dr. Thrasher did a case study on an infant that died at 68 days of age with Reye’s syndrome. The infant and parents were exposed to airborne fungi, bacteria and toxic bioaerosols resulting from water intrusion in the home. Reye's syndrome is characterized by acute encephalopathy and hepatic injury.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/molds DrThrasher_Molds - Fungal contamination is a major contributor to sick building syndrome. Molds grow on surfaces as well as in hidden areas such as in carpet, behind wall paper, inside interior and exterior walls, in attics, in subflooring and in HVAC systems.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/alternaria DrThrasher_Alternaria - Alternaria species are abundant in the environment. They are normal agents of decay and decomposition of organic matter. Alternaria are also present indoors as a result of water intrusion and are found on building materials.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/aspergillus DrThrasher_Aspergillus - Aspergillus contains several species. Some are pathogenic to plants, animals and humans. Several species produce mycotoxins and are found in damp indoor spaces.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/cladosporium DrThrasher_Cladosporium - Cladosporium species are widely distributed in air and rotting organic material. They are common in water-damaged buildings readily growing on building materials that contain organic compounds. The genus contains over 30 species.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/cryptococcus DrThrasher_Cryptococcus - Cryptococcus neoformans is endemic to the dry desert climates of California and Arizona. It can cause serious infections in animals and humans. C. gattii, has been infecting animals and humans in the northwest region, and it thrives in moist environments.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/eurotium DrThrasher_Eurotium - Eurotium species are one of several genera that are indicative of water intrusion and resultant amplification of fungi (molds) and bacteria. Eurotium species are important fungi in moisture-damaged structures adding to the toxins and antigens in these environments.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/fusarium DrThrasher_Fusarium - Fusarium is a filamentous fungus found on plants and in soils and has also been identified in both indoor and outdoor air samples. Fusarium species produce several mycotoxins including trichothecenes (DON and T-2).
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/penicillium DrThrasher_Penicillium - Penicillium is a genus of mold-forming fungi that grow on stored feed , growing plants, crops and damp indoor spaces. Some produce antibiotics, some can be opportunistic pathogens and some produce mycotoxins, including patulin.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/stachybotrys DrThrasher_Stachybotrys - Stachybotrys is one of several species of mold capable of producing mycotoxins under certain environmental conditions and is often found in water-damaged buildings. Stachybotrys may produce several different mycotoxins, including a class known as trichothecenes. The trichothecenes are potent inhibitors of DNA, RNA and protein synthesis.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/mycotoxins DrThrasher_Mycotoxins - Mycotoxins are produced by some fungi. Mycotoxin production is influenced by substrate composition, water activity and temperature and can cause mycotoxicosis in humans and animals
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/aflatoxins DrThrasher_Aflatoxins - Aflatoxins are produced by different species of Aspergillus, particularly flavus, oryzae, fumigatus and parasiticus, as well as members of the genera penicillium. Aflatoxins can contaminate corn, cereals, sorghum, peanuts, and other oil-seed crops. Aflatoxins are carcinogenic to humans and animals.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/endotoxins DrThrasher_Endotoxins - Endotoxins are LPS complexes of the outer cell wall of gram-negative bacteria, usually pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella, Shigella and Pseudomonas. LPS are present in the indoor environment of normal and water-damaged homes and buildings
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/ergot-alkaloids DrThrasher_Ergot Alkaloids - Ergot alkaloids are a complex family of mycotoxins derived from prenylated in several species of fungi. Most commonly, these mycotoxins are associated with species of Claviceps, Epichloe and Neotyphodium.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/fumonisins DrThrasher_Fumonisins - Fumonisins are produced by species of Fusarium. In the U.S., the the ingestion of moldy corn was first associated with adverse health affects in farm animals.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/gliotoxin DrThrasher_Gliotoxin - Gliotoxin is from a group of fungal mycotoxins called epipolythiodioxopiperazines (ETPs). The ETPs are produced by a wide variety of fungi including aspergillus, chaetomium and penicillium.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/ochratoxin DrThrasher_Ochratoxin - Ochratoxins are metabolites of Aspergillus, Fusarium, and Penicillium species. OTA is mutagenic, carcinogenic, teratogenic and immunosuppressive and causes mitochondrial damage.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/tremorgens DrThrasher_Tremorgens - Tremorgenic mycotoxins fit into two classes that act at the level of the central nervous system. The first class are mycotoxins that cause paralysis and respiratory arrest and the second class causes true tremors.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/trichothecenes DrThrasher_Trichothecenes - The trichothecenes are a large family of metabolites produced by several species of molds including Fusarium, Myrothecium, Trichoderma, Trichothecium, Cephalosporium, Verticimonosporium, and Stachybotrys. They are toxic to humans, other mammals, birds, invertebrates, plants and eukaryote cells.
  • https://www.drthrasher.org/bacteria DrThrasher_Bacteria - Bacterial toxins co-occur with mycotoxins in moisture-damaged indoor environments. These compounds are measurable also in settled airborne dust, indicating that inhalation exposure takes place. In attempts to characterize exposures to microbial metabolites not only mycotoxins but also bacterial metabolites have to be targeted by the analytical methods applied.

    Very nice planner. Bought this for my college age granddaughter who loves elephants. Pages organized by the week: day/date - each day has own column for writing. Can see two weeks at a time when pages opened flat. Back of planner has pages for doodling and notes. Front pages for notes/birthdays. Half year July - December 2015 & January - December, 2016.

  • Leah E. - Spatters and Shards

    15 days ago today, I was a different person: naive, carefree, releasing a fart here and there without a thought given. But on that day, it changed. 5 hours after my cup of sugar-free gummy bears, a grim reminder of my own mortality arrived in the form of shards of gummy mixed with bubbling diarrhea. I remember it all so clearly. The laughter first, because farts are funny, then the concern. The pain. The fear. The panic driving home, crying, praying I'd make it in time. Would this last fart truly be a shart? Was this it? Was it time? No. I had made it. Sobbing. Everything falling out, spraying out in a foul torrent. Laughter. Then tears and shame.

  • Maria - worthless

    the vacuum top does not stay in, it comes off and it is worthless, made of cheap plastic, waste of money

  • MissMac - Wonderful product!!!!!!

    I bought this, a year ago, for my fair skinned daughter who is an athlete. She had a formal dance coming up and wanted to minimize the bruises she had on her arms. This year, during one of her athletic events, I slammed my shin into the bleacher while jumping up in the stands. A knot came up right away and I had a hard time walking an hour afterwards. When we got home, my daughter brought the cream to me and I applied it right away. The bump broke the skin through my sock and jeans so I put it all around the broken skin. I could not believe that I never saw any discoloration of my skin and the swelling went down within a few hours. This stuff is just amazing and I have been telling my friends about it ever since!
