  1. Hello Paulo – it was very good to read this blog – thanks for the honesty and for allowing us to share the journey even though it has been so tough. Best wishes ever, Peter

  2. Hello Paulo…recently read your article posted on facebook through A Rocha.”The problem is that the Earth doesn’t have time to wait until we are economically comfortable.” It’s perfect! I was born and live in Vancouver, BC, Canada and my family is from a small island near Portugal. A Rocha is an organizations that I believe in with all my heart. After many year of disease diagnoses I began to investigate the root of my own chronic illness. I have a story to tell based on my recovery. It turns out that my illness was not what doctors first thought. As a matter of fact the deterioration of my health was due to environmental impact on my health we discovered after a toxicology report. Where I had lived, what I consumed and my area of study and profession were key to determining the root of what ailed me…I was an oil painter working with volatile chemicals and a designer in the print industry. Would love to be in contact you and discuss your article? The lord has put on my heart to tell my story and the stories of others who have been harmed…also environmental impact on health. The book that I have just started writing is called turning point as things stand…the title may still change after it’s completed? I was hoping to quote you in the beginning of my book if you would allow me? The above article is what I would like quote. How can I contact you? Do you speak english…I speak broken Portuguese but am out of practice unfortunately. How can I contact you? Or can you contact me?
