Trace Amounts Goes to Washington, D.C.
By Cathy Jameson
My husband and I haven’t had a chance to get out together in a few months. Juggling five kids and Ronan’s medical issues prevents that. But when we heard that Eric Gladen’s Trace Amounts was coming to the east coast, we made plans well ahead of time to make sure we were there.
I’m so glad we went. It was more than just a date night for me and my husband. And it was much more than just another movie for us to see.
Others who came out to support Eric Gladen at the US Capitol Visitor Center on April 15th were Robert F. Kenney, Jr., Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL), Jim Moody, Dr. Richard Fischer, Dr. Brian Hooker, Dan Olmsted, Mark Blaxill, Becky Estepp, Jennifer Larson, Lyn Redwood, Tony Lyons, Brook Potthaus, Josie Nelson, and a host of others, to include quite a few parents. We were there to support not only the movie but to discuss an important issue: mercury.
Mercury has become is a controversial subject. It shouldn’t be because it’s a neurotoxin. But mercury and its harmful effects are downplayed by those who manufacture it, by those who choose to add it to their products, and by those who regulate its use.
