Low Doses Make More than Fat Rats

by admin on March 19, 2012

We’ve been busy, busy here at the ABCAlliance. Super busy preparing lots of material, hoping to effect change in our community. We haven’t been blogging about it, but we will soon.

(And no, it has nothing to do with upcoming elections, but we like those challenges we see. Make those candidates work for it, voters.)

Ever since 65 air toxics were detected on the marching band parking lot a year ago, we have asked and asked: what will that chemical cocktail do to our kids?

Tufts University has proven scientists need not count very high before exposure to certain chemicals has a life-altering effect.

Last year, the state’s cracker-jack toxicologists sent re-assuring words to the Argyle ISD that there was nothing to worry about with our kids breathing those 65 toxics.

(And lest you forget, school officials brought ZERO skepticism to the table with that report.)

You see, toxicologists are all about the dose. As in, how many ibuprofen can you take before you poison yourself?

(The answer is: a lot. And that’s a good thing for those of us who must suffer methane hangovers all the time.)

For those low-dose threats, it’s all about the timing, Tufts says.


Let us spell it out for you.

This here project by our schools is b-a-d timing.
