Conference Summaries:

1. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Conference

Dr. Lieberman’s note: In the above link is contained my report on a meeting I attended that was sponsored by Georgetown University, the International Center for Interdisciplinary Studies of Immunology, and the International Health Foundation. It is regrettable that although these findings were reported nearly a decade ago (in 1999), very few doctors or parents today understand that there really are effective alternatives to drugs for children with ADHD.

2. Summary of the Fifth International Meeting of the British Society of Allergy, Environmental Medicine and Nutrition, and Sustainable Medicine,
Oxford University, England

Dr. Lieberman’s Note: The following links contain summaries of many interesting papers that were presented at this conference held at Oxford University in England, and which I have shared with my patients over the years. These doctors taught us concepts that my patients have found helpful and perhaps other readers today will, too.

Latex Sensitivity
Role of Food Sensitivities in Asthma and Inflammatory Bowel Disorders
Biochemical Abnormalities of Autism
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Toxic Chemical Exposure
Gulf War Research on Illness Induced by Chemical Toxicity and Biologic Exposures
Low Level Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Association with Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
Organophosphate Pesticide Exposure

3. The Effects of Our Environment on the Endocrine (Hormonal) System

Dr. Lieberman’s Note: We are sorry to see that people generally have so little understanding of the adverse effects of using so many toxic chemicals in their daily lives and that they are equally unaware of effective, safer alternatives. Our goal in continuing to present the information given in the above link is to encourage each reader to take responsibility for his or her own actions and possible consequences in choices of products to use for pest control, home and garden maintenance, food containers and preparation, etc. We can’t change the whole world at once, but we can each make our own best choices.
