12,000 Canaries Can’t Be Wrong

How does our environment impact our health, and what can we do about it? 12,000 Canaries Can’t Be Wrong is a culmination of Dr. Molot’s 30 years of experience seeing more than 12,000 patients with environmentally linked illnesses. He explains how the environment contributes to the development and progression of many common conditions and illnesses, including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and other pain disorders, chemical sensitivity, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies and asthma, diabetes, autistic spectrum disorder, and even obesity. Dr. Molot provides a nine-point plan that will make a positive difference to our health, and to the health of our children.
