brain is not the only organ of the body negatively affected by various exogenous toxins in our environment.” – NTEF
From the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke a division of the National Institutes of Health:”Encephalopathy is a term for any diffuse disease of the brain that alters brain function or structure. Encephalopathy may be caused by infectious agent (bacteria, virus, or prion), metabolic or mitochondrial dysfunction, brain tumor or increased pressure in the skull, prolonged exposure to toxic elements (including solvents, drugs, radiation, paints, industrial chemicals, and certain metals), chronic progressive trauma, poor nutrition, or lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain.”
Chemical Injury, ADD/ADHD, Lyme, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Gulf War Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, all have some degree of interaction upon the brain.

Air Fresheners’ Real Impact On Indoor Air Quality
From the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke a division of the National Institutes of Health:
“Neurotoxicity occurs when the exposure to natural or manmade toxic substances (neurotoxicants) alters the normal activity of the nervous system. This can eventually disrupt or even kill neurons, key cells that transmit and process signals in the brain and other parts of the nervous system.
Neurotoxicity can result from exposure to substances used in chemotherapy, radiation treatment, drug therapies, and organ transplants, as well as exposure to heavy metals such as lead and mercury, certain foods and food additives, pesticides, industrial and/or cleaning solvents, cosmetics, and some naturally occurring substances. Symptoms may appear immediately after exposure or be delayed. They may include limb weakness or numbness; loss of memory, vision, and/or intellect; headache; cognitive and behavioral problems; and sexual dysfunction. Individuals with certain disorders may be especially vulnerable to neurotoxicants.”
