    Brown C. Brown demands OHIP payment for Rinkel method. Ottawa; 1984.
    In the early stages of looking for things to make official, I chose medical references from the physicians who had attached themselves to us, namely "clinical ecologists." I soon moved on to advocate on human rights and disability concerns, avoiding the medical discussion as soon as I found out that the flaky assertions of clinical ecology were a big part of the problem.

    Zimmerman B, Weber E. Candida and "20th Century Disease".. 1985.
    Zimmerman criticizes the ideas and approaches of the cult of environmental medicine, but emphasizes that the sickness of patients is real. It would have been nice if he had put in a bit more history, instead of portraying so-called "clinical ecologists" as the only people who have dealt with patients with sensitivities over the centuries.

    Fecteau D. CHRC Fecteau misrepresents CHRC complaint, recommends rejection. Brown C, editor. Ottawa: CHRC; 1985.
    CHRC Diane Fecteau provides revisionist summary of my complaint demanding accommodation in the provision of regulations concerning pesticide labelling, as recommended by Health and Welfare and implemented by Agriculture Canada. Fecteau's dismissive summary decides that the complaint, which is clearly about labelling, quotes labelling section of pest control act, is actually about usage and therefore a provincial, not a federal, concern. Probably 200,000 Canadians have been killed unnecessarily since Fecteau and her colleagues unprofessionally interfered with this complaint.

    Fecteau D. CHRC Fecteau - Newspapers not covered by CHRC. Brown C, editor. Ottawa: CHRC; 1985.
    Canadian Human Rights Commission staff, unlike then Chief Commissioner Max Yalden, were brushing away complaints by persons with sensitivities. Yalden's approach to reducing the abuse of persons with sensitivities went out the window once Falardeau-Ramsey became Chief Commissioner. Perhaps 200,000 Canadians have been killed unnecessarily since Diane Fecteau and her colleagues first turned their backs. The Ottawa Citizen continues to invisibilize work that Heath Canada did in the early 1990's concerning the preventable killing of persons with sensitivities in health care. This is hateful in that it encourages s.216 homicides.

    CMA Policy Summary on Immunization. Ottawa: Canadian Medical Association; 1985.
    CMA policy makes no mention of disability resulting from immunization shots. Also, they publish a policy about immunization during a period where they were declaring, in relation to environmental sensitivities, they do not make statements about specific aspects of health care. A similar policy summary concerning sensitivities might have saved many thousands of lives.

    Schenck EM. HEAL invites Brown to set up Canadian chapter. Brown C, editor.; 1985.
    HEAL was active in the US, and there was a need to have a consumer organization that was independent from the unethical and destructive manipulation and co-optation to which doctors of environmental medicine subjected the Human Ecology Foundation. Fortunately, Marie Laurin soon founded the Advocacy Group for the Environmentally Sensitive, the original AGES, which formally disbanded in the mid 1990's, handing their work (and assets) over to the Allergy and Environmental Health Association.

    Thomson G, McCourtie DR, Woodward WD, Day JH, Evers SE, Gerrard JW. REPORT OF THE AD HOC COMMITTEE ON ENVIRONMENTAL HYPERSENSITIVITY DISORDERS W/APPENDICES. Toronto: Ontario Ministry of Health; 1985. (Thomson Report).
    The Ad Hoc Committee on Environmental Hypersensitivity Disorders (note plural) was commissioned by former Ontario health minister Keith Norton. The report's authors included Judge George M. Thomson, two teaching hospital physicians, and an epidemiologist. They pointed out that there was an existing, publicly-insured method of diagnosis, and a method of patient management long known to physicians. The Thomson report is often misrepresented by Ministry of Health officials, perhaps because it points out (p266) that key (and lethal) Ministry assumptions about sensitivities were "clearly untenable." Years later, retired NDP MPP Elie Martel expressed the opinion that ministry officials had simply lied to Liberal Murray Elston, who received, and promptly buried, the report in 1985. The same crowd of Liberals, elected to the House of Commons in 1993, buried work done under the Mulroney government to stop the injury and killing of persons with sensitivities in health care. People who were to be protected have been injured or killed, instead. The appendices include a list of symptoms reported by persons with sensitivities. Many of the conditions are included in the diseases treated at the National Jewish Hospital, in Denver, Colorado, which was built on Fresh Air Hospital guidelines more than a century ago.
