About the Author
MaryAlice Bonwell was a special education teacher in San Leandro, California when her health suddenly collapsed. She was diagnosed with environmental illness. Too sick to continue teaching, she went to live with her mother and started a small business selling reading boxes to those sensitive to the chemicals in paper and print. The reading boxes took her to medical conferences and enabled her to talk with hundreds of chemically sensitive patients. She learned the importance of Theron Randolph, M.D. to the whole field of environmental medicine. By following the precepts of Dr. Randolph, she was able to largely regain her health and return to special education teaching, this time in Imperial California. While she was teaching MaryAlice cared for her mother who had slipped into Alzheimer's disease while at the same time also continuing her professional studies. While writing her masters thesis she talked with the director of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation and used their materials for her thesis. Westin Price D.D.S. wrote about our physical degeneration, but as MaryAlice worked with children with learning disabilities at school and coped with her mother's Alzheimer's at home, she began to realize that that people can be degenerating mentally and emotionally as well as physically. If we are degenerating mentally and physically what are the political implications? Mary Alice graduated from the University of Washington in political science. These are the kinds of questions that interest her. She brings a unique perspective to the question of why our country is in decline. This decline is in character and personality as well as the increase of degenerative diseases.
