We characterize a country''s exchange rate regime by how its central bank channels a capital account shock across three variables: exchange depreciation, interest rates, and international reserve flows. Structural vector autoregression estimates for Brazil, Mexico, and Turkey reveal such responses, both contemporaneously and over time. Capital account shocks are further shown to affect output growth and inflation. The nature and magnitude of these effects may depend on the exchange rate regime.

How the chemicals in everyday products are killing us—and what the government is not doing about it Did you know that "nontoxic" usually means "never tested"? Or that many green cleaners are good for the environment but terrible for you? Chemist and activist Monona Rossol goes from under your sink to the halls of the powerful, tracing America’s love affair with chemicals that kill, explaining how much worse the problem has gotten in the last decade. Shocking and appalling and completely reckless—that’s how she describes the current prevalence of harmful chemicals in our everyday lives. Scientists have started linking our increased rates of cancer, autism, obesity, and asthma (among others) to chemical exposure and Rossol points the finger directly at the companies and executives making millions of dollars by polluting our environment and introducing toxic chemicals into our bodies. She chronicles how everyday toxins get into our bodies and accumulate over time and provides us with inspiration to make changes at the checkout lines. She also explains that Americans are not nearly as well protected by our government as we might think we are. Unlike the European Union, the United States allows chemical companies to produce toxins for use in U.S. consumer products with little to no oversight. While her tone is wry and entertaining, she’s also well informed, and her fact-filled treatise makes for absolutely terrifying reading. Includes surprising explanations about the chemicals in furniture, detergents, paints, makeup, toys, spray cleaners, ionic air purifiers, art supplies, and more Reveals how many eco-friendly products are good for the environment but bad for your health Exposes the truth about government regulations, product testing, and labeling, including why terms such as "nontoxic" (which often means "never tested"), "hypoallergenic," and "FDA-approved" can be misleading Offers practical ways to reduce your exposure and protect yourself and your family If you’re alarmed by the health risks of the many hazardous chemicals we encounter at home, work, and school, don’t get frightened, get informed. Read Pick Your Poison to learn the facts and find out what you can do about the daily onslaught of toxins that are making lab rats of us all.

Bad genes aren't making you sick. Bad food is. This book will help you shop, cook, and eat healthier so that you can prevent serious health issues and ensure a better quality of life. In the past two to three decades the health of America's population has slowly eroded, and it has a lot to do with the food we eat. Genetically modified foods, or "GMOs" (genetically modified organisms), are now in all our supermarkets. In fact, GMO plants and livestock are much more common than non-GMOs. The result is that we no longer eat food but "food products" loaded with chemicals that are linked to health problems such as inflammation, weight gain, and organ disruption. Eating GMO foods can decrease our healthy bacteria and increase the bad bacteria, putting us at risk for leaky gut and candida overgrowth, which can contribute to autoimmune disease. The percentage of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses has jumped since the introduction of GMOs in 1996. Food allergies have skyrocketed, and autism, infertility, digestive problems, and other disorders are on the rise. Health watchdog groups are waking up to the danger and tell us not to wait before we start protecting ourselves and our children, who are most at risk. Dr. Janet's quest to get answers for her own family's health crises will now help readers. Pick Your Poison is a compilation of her research, personal experience, and real survival tips on how to navigate this NEW way that we all have to live when the foods we eat are not necessarily our friends. Educating ourselves is the most important thing we can do for our own health and for those we love. This book will arm and educate readers, and possibly even save their lives! OTHER BOOKS BY DR.
