Thalidomide was a pill for morning sickness but pregnant women it was heart rending as this drug caused the foetus to form in a very bad way. Some were born with arms and all kinds of deformities. Of course there was no birth where the baby was born without a head. It affects the limbs only.

I worked in an office with a guy with a shriveled arm. He was draftsman. This tragedy was avoided in America as a brave Canadian scientist withheld approval for the drug. The big companies almost got her fired until cases of deformed babies became news and so the Americans were spared this tragedy.

Canadian Dr. Frances Kelly who prevented thalidomide from being used in U.S.A. just died recently.

There are 80,000 chemicals developed that serve to make certain products impervious to fire, corrosion and what not. However after use they are disposed of and leak into the environment as they are virtually indestructible. Lots of the chemicals end up in our blood and body in tiny quantities ppm (parts per million) or ppb (parts per billion). Jack Layton, leader of the New Democratic Party, NDP, died of cancer and his blood also contained lot of chemicals.
