The EMEI Review is a podcast that carries on the mission of the Crinnion Opinion podcast which reviewed the published literature on environmental pollution and health from 2013-2019 (available for free at crinnionopinion.com).
With the passing of Dr. Walter Crinnion in 2019, the EMEI podcast was born to continue helping healthcare providers stay current with published studies on the toxicant/disease connection as well as cutting edge research on solutions to pollutant-induced health conditions.
IF you have already registered for the Clinical Training in Environmental Medicine course you’ll get a year’s subscription to the EMEI Review for free, just use the same registration login to get into both.
Here is look behind the curtain of the EMEI Review so far:
(free podcast) a look at groundbreaking research regarding EMF/EMR (electromagnetic radiation) exposure from cell phones, cell towers, wifi routers, etc. and health conditions from global experts who presented at the EMF Conference held in Scotts Valley CA in September 2019.
Mercury- sources of exposure, signs and symptoms, research in the relationship of mercury levels to insulin insensitivity, neurologic issues, mood disorders, and the common symptoms seen in fish-eaters: headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, head hair loss and metallic taste in mouth. (PMID: 12676623)
Mercury Part 2: A review of risk groups: amalgam fillings and those who place them (dental offices) as well as case studies in acute mercury exposure.
Do organic diets alter urinary glyphosate levels in families? Arsenic Everywhere: exposure assessment, testing and treatment. Includes a review of global hotspots including the United States.
BPA is known as the poster child for endocrine disrupting chemicals for a reason. It’s far-reaching effects into reproductive and metabolic health has the potential to disrupt human lives and the health of future generations.
PCBs have long been suspected to contribute to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and a new study reviewed this month identifies a new way to differentiate NAFLD caused by toxicants from NAFLD from other causes. The study centers on the community of Anniston, Alabama, who have all been chronically exposed to drinking water laced with PCBs and where 60% of the community is estimated to have NAFLD.
Phthalates are one of the top 3 insidious toxicants that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Phthalates are endocrine disruptors, can lower testosterone, and cause feminization of male newborns.
Toxicant Exposure and Risk of COVID-19 infection and severity. A review of published studies on COVID-19 risk and common exposures like air pollutants (PM2.5), endocrine disruptors (plastics), metals and some uncommon exposures like Corexit (remember the Deepwater Horizon spill?) that now contaminates the ocean, and the skin of surfers and fishermen.
Perfluorinates, pesticides, persistent organic pollutants and Post-Acute COVID Syndrome (PACS). We take a look at perfluorinates in cosmetics, relationship of proximity to pesticide spraying and risk for childhood brain tumors, endotoxemia and COVID-19 and, finally, plastics and POPs ( BPA, PCBs) and their effect on the microbiome and intestinal barrier disruption.
A review of the genomics of detoxification, glutathione and COVID, the role of sulforaphane, and finally pesticides and dysbiosis- pesticide exposure leads to dysbiosis, which leads to endotoxemia, which leads to mucosal permeability.
A review of the latest literature covering benzene in sunscreens and their recall, PFAS in cosmetics and ingredient lists of natural cosmetics, and finally what effect a shared environment has on common endocrine disruptors.
