A French Publishing House has released a book that is generating great controversy: its title is Menace sur les neurones (something like threat) against neurons and puts the finger on the sore spot on a topic that perhaps has spoken much, but of which little is known. It is scientifically proven that neurovegetative, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases are caused when there is irreversible damage to neurons. This damage occurs gradually over the years through chemical and physical assaults that impact on neurons until his State is the worst. The most important source of this explosive neurotoxic combo is the accumulation of heavy metals in the environment: there is nothing new to say that we can find water with aluminum, pesticide in certain foods and solvents and ultrafine particles in the air. But why does this killer blend?, why is it allowed? These substances are known and could be prohibited and thus improve the quality of our media room, but apparently not political will exists to work on prevention. This lack of political will to respond to a serious mental health problem is the central axis that touches this book by Marie Grosman, specialist in environmental health, with the collaboration of Roger Lenglet, philosopher and journalist. The pair has worked and researched a perverse system that promotes the economic interests of certain groups seeking to keep certain information out of reach of the population.
This conspiracy may seem a fictional story, but the truth is that it is well known that in the current system everything is ruled by money. Thus it is that Grossman and Lenglet got into the heart of this problem with the aim of not only throw light on neurovegetative diseases risk factors, but also reveal an interwoven complicities and favors among politicians and pressure groups. After publishing his research, both authors received a warning from the hand of a person in charge of the Ministry of French Ecology: we are very aware of the problem, but we must be prudent. You must not create panic or frighten the population, said the official. As they describe Grossman and Lenglet, neurovegetative diseases grow exponentially: 100,000 disease, Parkinson’s disease and almost 1 million people with Alzheimer’s disease were recorded in France. Year after year add 225,000 new cases, increasingly affecting young people.
