Perfumes linked


to health problems


For years one of my friends
complained about adverse reac-
tions to perfumes due to chemical
sensitivities. While I sympathized, I
couldn't really understand what
she was going though until last
week when a blast of "body spray"
wafted toward me. My throat
closed up; I was having trouble
breathing; my eyes watered; I
became nauseated.
What was going on?
A little online research revealed
that I am not alone. More and more
people are having bad reactions to
perfumed products such as body
sprays, perfumes, deodorants, car-
pet cleaners and air fresheners.
There are several reasons for
the increase in bad reactions. One
is simply that there are more scent-
ed products on the market. Body
sprays are being marketed to both
men and women. And the compa-
nies that make these products are
targeting younger consumers, who
prefer stronger scents. Younger
consumers may also be a little
more liberal with applying the
sprays. All of this means there are
more perfumed products in the
market place and in the air.
Another potential health hazard
is the ingredients in the perfumes.
Traditionally, perfumes were made
from natural substances, and only
a tiny percentage of the population
is allergic to nature's perfumes --
like citrus or rose oil.
Today more and more scented
products are synthetic made
from things like petroleum prod-
ucts. Some of the ingredients used
are indeed toxic and depending on
your level of sensitivity, can cause
physical discomfort.
Research also shows that
chemical sensitivity can develop
over time, after repeated exposure
to a toxin. You might not have
symptoms the first few times you
are exposed, but develop them
after repeated exposure.
According to a study conducted
in the 1990s by the Environmental
Protection Agency, the percentage
of the population suffering from
adverse reaction to perfumed

with Katrina Elsken


products is increasing. They attrib-
ute this in part to the increase in
scented products. Another prob-
lem might be the combination of
the toxins in the perfumes with
other toxins already in the environ-
ment, such a cigarette smoke.
What can you do about the situ-
ation?
Be considerate: If you work in
an office with many workers shar-
ing the same open space, don't
wear perfumes or body sprays.
Use moderation. If you wear
perfumes or body sprays, use just a
small amount.
Complain: If you have a bad
reaction to a perfume or scented
product, report it to the Food and
Drug Administration. If the FDA
receives enough complaints about
a product, they will investigate the
problem. To report an adverse
reaction to the FDA, call FDA's
Office of Cosmetics and Colors at
1-202-401-9725, or file online. You
may also send your report in writ-
ing to: FDA, Office of Cosmetics
and Colors (HFS-100), 200 C St.,
SW, Washington, DC 20204.
Ask for compassion: Some
chemically-sensitive people can't
attend church services due to the
perfume worn by others there. To
help, pastors may ask their congre-
gation to forego perfume on the
days they attend church services.
Avoid known problem areas:
If you have a bad reaction to per-
fumes, stay out of perfume depart-
ments in stores and let store man-
agers knoA thatlIou (vill not shop
at their store if they post "perfume
sample" sprays inwother areas of
the store.

TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist has issued
a consumer alert warning Florid-
ians about the unauthorized
solicitation of funds by Protect
and Serve USA, an organization
that is using the picture of mur-
der victim Jessica Lunsford to
collect money. The organization
has placed pictures of Jessica
and John Evander Couey, the
man accused of her murder, on
approximately 500 collection
boxes placed in convenience
stores across the state. The
boxes also carry a statement that
asks consumers to donate $1 to
stop sexual predators. Jessica's
picture is being used without the
permission of her father, Mark
Lunsford.

scionable," said Mr. Crist. "To
use a deceased child's picture
without the parent's permission
is despicable. Consumers need
to be aware that this organiza-
tion is not connected with the
Lunsford family in any way, and
appears to be doing nothing
more than capitalizing on a
tragedy that shocked our entire
state."
The solicitation could result
in civil or criminal actions
against the organization. The
Attorney General's Office has
launched a formal investigation
under the Deceptive and Unfair
Trade Practices statute and is
working closely with the Tampa
Police Department in that
agency's investigative efforts.

Guest Commentary


Worship Safety Act protects religious freedoms


By Charlie Crist,
Florida Attorney General
On November 22, 2004, wor-
shipers gathered at St. Anthony's
parish in Ft. Lauderdale to practice
their faith. The morning service
was a part of their normal routine,
but this morning would turn out to
be anything but normal.
As the Mass was about to begin,
masked intruders burst in, robbed
the parishioners at gunpoint and
stole not only their possessions but


their sense of security. What kind

of morally bankrupt individual
would choose to single out people
of faith to be crime victims? The
answer is: the worst kind.
Robbery is a crime that needs to
be prosecuted no matter where it
takes place, but there is an extra
sense of vulnerability among those
who visit their church, synagogue,
mosque, temple or other place of
worship. Just as in our homes, we
expect to be safe in our places of


Preparing for Prom


worship, and the law should work
to ensure that safety.
Thanks to the leadership of
State Representatives Tim Ryan
and Jack Seller, as well as Senators
Rod Smith and Jeff Atwater, the
recently passed "Freedom to Wor-
ship Safely Act" increases the crimi-
nal penalties for an offense that
involves the threat or use of vio-
lence against any person, if the
crime is committed at a religious
institution while the victim is on the
property for the purpose of partici-
pating in or attending a religious
activity. A crime that might be a
third-degree felony, for example,
will now become a second-degree
felony if committed against a wor-

I am proud to have worked with
members of the Florida Legislature
on the "Freedom to Worship Safely
Act," which will better protect our
citizens.
The practice of one's faith is a
deeply personal experience, and to
have that moment disrupted by a
criminal act is intolerable. Places
of worship historically have been
sanctuaries from the problems of
the outside world, and I am
pleased that the Legislature has
taken the appropriate steps to
make sure that this environment
remains safe and secure.
Floridians have the fundamen-
tal right to worship without fear.

County purchases state


of the art fire equipment


The Polk County Board of
County Commissioners' Fire Ser-
vices Division has recently com-
pleted the purchase of state of
the art self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA).for all fire-
fighters. The acquisition of the
new equipment will assist fire-
fighters on a daily basis in serv-
ice delivery to the citizens of Polk
County. Firefighters utilize the
equipment every time they enter
a smoke filled or potentially haz-
ardous environment.
This new equipment meets
the most stringent of require-
ments set forth by the National
Fire Protection Association as
well as the Department of
Homeland Security. Each device
has been integrated with a Per-
sonal Alert Safety System (PASS
device) that will sound if a fire-
fighter remains motionless for
more the thirty seconds. These
devices have fewer parts making
it easier for firefighters to keep
track of air levels, motion sen-
sors, and equipment. The new
features will improve the quality
of service provided to citizens.


Fire department personnel
will complete training on the
equipment by the end of May.
The training will also cover oper-
ation of additional new equip-
ment to include ground ladders
and hoselines. Under the direc-
tion of the Board, the Public
Safety Department and the Fire


Services Division constantly
strives to implement new and
innovative equipment and tech-
niques to efficiently serve the
emergency needs of Polk County
citizens:
For more information, con-
tact the Polk County Fire Services
Division at 863-519-7350.

Web site helps small farmers


Livestock imports restricted


LIVE OAK, Fla.- At at a time
when large corporate farms
dominate the marketplace, small
farmers often struggle to com-
pete, but help is on the way,
thanks to a new Web site created
by the University of Florida and
Florida A&M University.
"With fewer resources avail-
able to them, small farmers in
Florida face a variety of issues
and challenges, which often
places them at a competitive dis-
advantage," said Bob
Hochmuth, a multicounty exten-
sion agent with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences,
or UF/IFAS.
"Small farms represent more
than 90 percent of all farms in
Florida, and their success is vital
to the state's $69 billion agricul-
ture and natural resources indus-
tries," he said. "That's why
UF/IFAS and FAMU have created
a Web site
(http://smallfarms.ifas.ufl.e du/)
that specifically addresses the
needs of these farmers."
Hochmuth, based at the


UF/IFAS North Florida Research
and Education Center in Live
Oak, said the Web site was
developed to make small farm
information accessible in one
convenient location. Alejandro
Bolques, a Florida A&M Univer-
sity extension agent .in Gadsden
County, helped design the Web
site.
"Small farmers may be seek-
ing information on getting start-
ed in farming, or considering
one of many alternative enter-
prises, and it's now all pulled
together on one site to make the
search easier," Hochmuth said.
The Web site provides links
and other resources for small
farmers, including information
on how to get started, budget-
ing, business planning, financ-
ing, grants, marketing and other
issues. Farmers using the site can
select toMics on enterprises of
special interest to them, includ-
ing aquaculture, cut flower pro-
duction, livestock production
and organic farming. Each topic
includes information on produc-


tion, marketing and economics,
as well as links to other useful
information.
"What a fabulous resource,"
said Betty O'Toole, owner of
O'Toole's Herb Farm in Madison,
Fla. "We have found that the
IFAS small farm Web site has
become an invaluable tool it's
jammed packed with useful
information, quick and user-
friendly, even for the computer
novices we are."
Input from small farmers and
allied organizations was used to
design the site, which identifies
critical issues, such as access to
profitable markets, business
skills development, technical
information, and alternative
crops and enterprises. Input
from counties throughout Flori-
da identified the need for small
farm educational programs to be
developed. The small farm Web
site provides information that
farmers can employ to address
these issues and become more
efficient in their business,
Hochmuth said.


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced the
placement of restrictions on the
importation of animals from
states affected with Vesicular
Stomatitis following a con-
firmed case in New Mexico, the
first such case reported in the
United States this year.
Vesicular Stomatitis is a high-
ly contagious, viral disease that
affects horses, cattle, swine and
occasionally sheep, goats and
deer. The virus can also cause
flu-like symptoms in people
working with infected animals.
Symptoms on animals include
blister-like lesions in the mouth,
on the tongue, lips, nostrils,
hooves and teats. While the
virus doesn't usually kill the ani-
mals, it does result in significant
weight loss and milk production
loss. It is also difficult to distin-
guish between this virus and
foot and mouth disease, a dev-


"I'm pleased to see that
New Mexico has taken
immediate action to
hold animals on the
affected premises."
Charles H. Bronson
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner

stating livestock disease found
outside the United States. States
and other countries often
impose movement restrictions
on animals from Vesicular
Stomatitis affected areas.
Last week, the USDA Nation-
al Veterinary Services Laborato-
ries 'confirmed the finding of
two positive horses with clinical
signs on a cattle and horse ranch
in Grant County, New Mexico.
"I'm pleased to see that New
Mexico has taken immediate


action to hold animals on the
affected premises," Mr. Bronson
said, but the possibility that
this disease could be in other
areas makes it imperative that
we have rules in place to pre-
vent the disease from being
imported intd Florida."
Florida requires veterinary
inspection of susceptible ani-
mals coming from states affect-
ed with Vesicular Stomatitis.
Hoofed animals entering Florida
from New Mexico will require
prior permission for entry and
must be accompanied by an
official certificate of veterinary
inspection stating that they are
free of clinical signs of this dis-
ease and have not been exposed
nor located within 10 miles of a
positive premises within the pre-
vious 30 days. Susceptible ani-
mals will also be required to
have documentation to show
they have been tested and found
negative within 10 days of
movement to Florida.
