To ALL VIEWERS:
The following Recent UCLA Scientific Medical Studies may be the most IMPORTANT information you will ever read concerning your Family’s HEALTH & SAFETY.
FUNDING: The University of California’s Tobacco-related Disease Research Program.
JOURNAL: The research appears in the June 1 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience Research.
AUTHORS: John Edmond, Ph.D., professor of biological chemistry; Ivan Lopez, Ph.D., assistant professor of head and neck surgery; and Douglas Webber, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow; at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, are available for interviews.
CONTEXT: Tobacco smoke, gas heaters, stoves and ovens all emit CO, which can rise to high concentrations in poorly ventilated homes. Infants and children are particularly vulnerable to CO exposure because they spend a great deal of time in the home. No policies exist to regulate CO in the home. Many commercial home monitors sound an alarm only 70 to 240 minutes after CO concentrations reaches 70 parts per million — nearly three times the 25 parts per million limit set by Cal/OSHA.
IMPACT: This is the first time that inhaled CO has been linked to oxidative stress, a known risk factor in many disorders, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gherig’s disease and cardiovascular disease.
Tobacco smoke, which contains CO, aggravates many of these diseases. The UCLA findings highlight the need for policy makers to reexamine the regulation of car exhaust, tobacco smoke, smog, and heating and cooking appliances.

Underweight Babies, with smaller Head Sizes; as well as some other Serious Birth Defects in the newborn.
The FETUS is severely and irreversibly effected by Very Low Levels of COHb.
2. How chronic exposure to tiny levels of carbon monoxide damages hearing in young ears:
FINDINGS: UCLA scientists have discovered how chronic exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide [C O] damages the inner ear, resulting in permanent hearing loss. At the Ca/OSHA’s exposure limit of 0.0025 percent — or 25 parts per million CO in the air — the gas creates oxidative stress, a condition that damages the cochlear cells, leading to impairment of the auditory nerves.
CONTEXT: Tobacco smoke, gas heaters, stoves and ovens all emit C O, which can rise to high concentrations in poorly ventilated homes. Infants and children are particularly vulnerable to C O exposure because they spend a great deal of time in the home. NO policies exist to mandate regulation of C O in the home.
IMPACT: This is the first time that inhaled C O has been linked to oxidative stress, a KNOWN RISK FACTOR IN MANY DISORDERS, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multi Sclerosis, Lou Gherig’s Disease and Cardiovascular Disease, Anemia, Asthma, and other Respiratory Problems.
Tobacco smoke, which contains C O, also aggravates many of these diseases. The UCLA findings highlight the need for policy makers to reexamine the regulation of C O due to car exhaust, tobacco smoke, smog, and heating and cooking appliances; as well as any and all sources of carbon monoxide.
3. Carbon pollution blamed for heart damage
Dec 03 (Reuters) – Air pollution clearly causes immediate damage to the heart, including heart attacks, but its short-term effects on asthma and other respiratory symptoms are harder to document, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday.

4. Strokes go up as air quality drops
People are more likely to be hospitalized for strokes on days when air pollution is bad, new research shows.[Consider that indoor air “can” be 5 times as bad as outdoor air]
5. Carbon Monoxide often damages heart
Among people who suffer moderate to severe carbon monoxide poisoning, more than one third will develop cardiovascular symptoms, new research indicates.
6. The following quote is the first paragraph of a Great New C O Study, done at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
“The following patients may be encountered during an emergency department [ED] shift: a 7 year old with a first-time seizure, an eighty year old with syncope, a family with flulike illness, a pregnant patient with vomiting and dizziness, a 45 old with chest pain, a comatose patient from a house fire, and a factory worker with a headache. Although these complaints may sound diverse, [C O] exposure may account for all of these clinical scenarios. C O exposure often goes unrecognized and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Rapid recognition and appropriate therapy can improve outcomes significantly.”
***** A Quick Review of the Medical Studies listed above:
According to Scientist at UCLA, and Research Scientists at other Leading Medical Institutions throughout the World who have recently released Reports on their Medical Studies regarding the many devastating effects of Chronic Low Level CO. Carbon Monoxide resulting from second hand smoke; as well as many other sources as low as 5 PPM, [parts per million], were found to result in the following.
Underweight Babies, with smaller Head Sizes; as well as some other Serious Birth Defects in the newborn. The FETUS is severely and irreversibly effected by Very Low Levels of COHb during the 3rd trimester; as well as Increased suffering due to OXIDATIVE STRESS caused by Low Level Chronic C O Poisoning in persons having any of the following illnesses:
c. Multi Sclerosis
d. Lou Gherig’s Disease
e. Cardiovascular Disease
g. Various other Respiratory Problems
2. Early detection Will REDUCE the 33% that SUFFER HEART TROUBLE AFTER C O POISONING.
3. Early detection Will REDUCE the NUMBER of STROKES Suffered due to BAD AIR Quality.
