Dr. Dís Crib Life Mattress Cover
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), which is the leading cause of death in infants from one to six months of age, may be caused by gases coming from dirty crib mattresses. We feel that there is enough compelling evidence supporting this theory to share the information with you.
In short, the theory is that the elements phosphorus, arsenic and antimony, which are present in most crib and bassinet mattresses and covers, as well as in natural products such as sheepskin, may interact with common mildew to produce dangerous gas which may poison susceptible babies.
The solution for blocking exposure to these gases, and thus preventing SIDS, is to cover the mattress with natural-color polyethylene sheeting found at hardware stores. However, we had quite a bit of mail from our readers looking for an actual mattress cover rather than just a flat sheet of plastic.
We tracked one down that was developed by Dr. T.J. Sprott, who did the initial re-search on SIDS and mattresses. I certainly plan to send one as a baby shower gift to every pregnant woman I know from now on!
Again, I want to emphasize that this is still a theory and we’re not making any guarantees about this mattress cover, but as you’ll read in the article (reprinted from the John R. Lee, M.D. Medical Letter -- see the More Info button), the evidence for its use is very convincing.
Dr. Gauss Meter
YOU CAN’T DETECT EMFs WITH YOUR FIVE SENSES
But You Can With The Dr. Gauss Meter!
Our information-packed interview with William Rea, M.D. about environmental illness and chemical overload in the John R. Lee, M.D. Medical Letter generated an amazing amount of interest. It seems that many of you can relate to the symptoms that Dr. Rea listed to describe environmental illness—especially sensitivity to fragrances.
We also received quite a bit of mail asking about EMFs, or electromagnetic fields, which Dr. Rea mentioned as one cause of environmental illness. Many of you want to know how to detect EMFs, and it just so happens we have an answer for you.
FLUORIDE WATER FILTER
YOUR WATER FILTER SOLUTION FOR FLUORIDE AND HEAVY METALS
Not available at this time
For a fraction of the price of other systems, and do-it-yourself installation, you can drink clean, safe water that tastes great.
This is the most cost-effective solution we’ve found for filtering fluoride from water with a simple “Do It Yourself” installation. It also filters out lead and other metals, bacteria, chlorine, cryptosporidium, odors, pesticides and herbicides.
The Doulton HIP400 water filter system includes:-- 4 housing assemblies
-- A mounting kit
-- 4 water filtering cartridges which are easily screwed into the housing assemblies
The HIP 400 is a home water filtration system designed for well, surface or chlorinated municipal water which has been treated with fluoride. It is effective for plumbing systems constructed with soldered copper, PVC, galvanized or black iron pipe. The HIP400 water filter is highly effective for homes which are fed by city mains which are lead lined or asbestos concrete reinforced.
Because the Doulton HIP 400 involves four cartridges, it is best used as an under-the-counter water filter system.
The Doulton HIP 400 water filter system is easily cleaned and requires no tools to service.
Price does not include shipping and handling which costs between $21 and $25 for surface mail to the U.S.

Top Notch Water Filter
Not available at this time
Clean water is one of the most basic requirements for good health, and yet virtually all tap water is polluted with toxins that can cause illness. Bacteria, heavy metals, industrial waste products, and pesticides contaminate surface and ground water, and in addition, municipal water contains added chlorine and often, fluoride.
You can buy bottled water, but it’s expensive and inconvenient. The simple and cost-effective solution for most people is an in-home water filter. In response to many letters and phone calls asking us to recommend a good water filter, we did our research and found a relatively inexpensive, easy-to-install, yet highly effective ceramic filter that does a great job in most homes. And yes, it tastes great too!
The basic Doulton water filters have a three-stage ceramic system that reduces bacteria, heavy metals, industrial toxins such as PCBs, and pesticides. The cartridges on the models we’re offering last for about a year for a family of four.
Water Test Kit for Pollutants
Bacteria, lead, chlorine, pesticides, hardness, pH and nitrates/nitrites
WATERSAFE Drinking Water Test Kit
The All-In-One Do-It-Yourself Drinking Water Test
After testing many water test kits, this is the most accurate, simple and cost-effective one we’ve found. The Watersafe Drinking Water Test kit comes complete with all that you need to determine whether your water contains unsafe or undesirable levels of these common water pollutants: bacteria, lead, pesticides, nitrates/nitrites, chlorine, hardness and pH.
Test for these Contaminants in Your Water
Bacteria: Strains of E. Coli cause serious illness or death, especially in children.
Lead: This heavy metal causes developmental damage in children, as well as neurological and kidney damage in all ages.
Pesticides: They’re everywhere, and are linked to increased cancer rates, and are xenoestrogenic pollutants. This test is for atrazine and simazine, two of the most common pesticides used in the U.S.
Nitrates/nitrites: Come from fertilizers and animal waste. They can developmental problems in children.
Chlorine: By-products can increase cancer risk; it’s bad for your skin and eyes, and it makes your water taste and smell bad.
Hardness: Causes lime scale and higher detergent use.
pH: High acidity in your water can cause lead and other heavy metals to leach from pipes and water mains, and can also damage your plumbing.
