Pesticides, TILT, and Mast Cells:  A Growing Global Concern – Dr. Claudia Miller Presentation

Hi friends, today I wanted to share a presentation where friend Dr. Claudia Miller shares part of her own health history and how she was harmed by exposure to pesticides used by an exterminator in her home. She also shares the connection between toxic exposures such as mold, pesticides, cleaning chemicals and developing chemical intolerances, histamine intolerance, and more. 

One of the key takeaways for me was towards the middle of the presentation, where Dr. Claudia explained that they surveyed 10,000 adults in the US and found that mold exposure was one of the main initiating events for developing intolerances to foods, pharmaceutical drugs, and chemicals. This is exactly what I have observed via private polls and educational consultations I have done over the years. One of the last private polls I conducted showed that almost 60% of women exposed to toxic mold went on to develop mild-severe chemical intolerances and sensitivities. 

To hear everything shared in this presentation, please watch the video below. 

Video Description: “Claudia Miller, M.D., M.S., provides us with a framework for understanding the dire health implications of the current dependency on pesticides and toxic chemicals and the failure of the regulatory system to fully evaluate and control for the range of adverse effects and complexity of their interactions. Dr. Miller is professor emerita at the University of Texas San Antonio. Her work has documented what is called Toxicant Induced Loss of Tolerance (TILT), which captures the disease process and range of nervous system symptoms that individuals develop as a result of low-level chemical exposures, raising connections to a wide range of public health diseases. Dr. Miller is the coauthor of numerous peer-reviewed publications and the professionally acclaimed book Chemical Exposures: Low Levels and High Stakes. Dr. Miller’s current research involves the relationship between synthetic chemical exposures and disruption of the gastrointestinal microbiome.”
