    Unacceptable Levels In Our Food, Water And Homes With Director Ed Brown

    in Health

    Ed Brown grew up in the small town of Altoona, Pennsylvania. After graduating, he went on to become a double major at Shippensburg University, and then moved on to work as a highlight writer with CBS Sports in New York City. Throughout his travels, he taught himself how to become a filmmaker, and through two personal tragedies, he taught himself to become a journalist. Ed Brown is the director, producer, editer and guy behind the camera in his documentary Unacceptable levels which is a documentary film on the chemicals and toxins in our food, water, soil and environment. 


    Currently, we have over 88,000 chemicals in our system of commerce, and some of those are going straight into our bodies, and even more importantly, our unborn children as well. Due to this constant exposure, we have over 200 synthetic industrial compounds that are interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that dynamic is changing.

    in Current Events

    Ed Brown, father and filmmaker joins Brendan D. Murphy and Aimee Devlin to discuss his examination of the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of his new documentary Unacceptable Levels.


    Ed Brown sought to understand the complex world in which he and his wife are raising their children, travelling extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. In Unacceptable Levels, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.


    Meanwhile, unexplained illnessses and global disease rates continue to rise; our unborn children are bombarded with synthetic chemicals in utero, and we come into contact with over 200 chemicals every day of our lives. Political and corporate interests continue to reign over common sense. Throughout his film, Ed Brown challenges our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact.


    Join our conversation with Ed, and discover the chemical burden our bodies carry, so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future.

    UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS-ED BROWN’S FILM ON THE TOXIC LOAD WE CARRY

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: A future without the threat of toxic chemicals in our daily lives


    “Unacceptable Levels” examines the unseen threat of toxic chemicals in our daily lives through the eyes of filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. Anchored in Brown’s own poignant experiences, the film follows his quest to uncover the impact of toxins on his family’s health.


    To create this debut documentary, Brown traveled extensively to interview top minds in the fields of science, industry, government, law and environmental advocacy. Compiling their testimonies into a provocative narrative, he chronicles the history of industrial chemicals—from the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the shocking prevalence of unregulated chemicals in our everyday lives. The film seeks to impart greater understanding about the compounding effects of chemicals on our health; engage questioning around the potential human and environmental risks; and ultimately inspire people to take action. 


    Ed Brown shares what he has learned, his insights, and his vision, mission and passion with us on Envision This!

    in Spirituality

    Tamyra D. Brown was born in partially raised in Northern Virginia and she moved, with her parents to Dickson, TN where she finished my formal schooling.


    Education has always been a part of my life. Her mother Sallie Bradby is a retired school teacher of over 30 years. Her back ground varies from Special education, elementary education, and college educator. Her father Dennis, now retired, was employed with the correctional system for over 30 years in multiple capacities such as, warden, principal, faith based ministries, and other inmate programs. 


    After graduating high school, she attended MTSU and majored in education with a minor in dance. Upon graduating, Tamyra went on to pursue a Masters degree in education with a concentration in Administration and Supervision. She has taught at all age levels and environments.


    While I worked for a private consulting agency,she traveled to many schools ( private, public, preschools, etc..) While visiting the preschools, it hit Tamyra how there was an urgent need for a clean, safe, loving, faith based childcare center. She took a leap and trusted in faith and decided to open a preschool. After many trials, tribulations, tears, and learning experiences, she got it right! Tamrya has had so much help from her family, her current director, Saundra Duffield, who has been with her since the beginning, and none of it would have been possible without our Father God.  Just over 1 year of opening All God's Children Early Learning Academy and we have a waiting list until next January for infants and all of our other classrooms are full with a waiting list.


    Tamrya excited to see the children's faces everyday and we have a wonderful faculty and staff that make my "job" worth while.
