Great news for those concerned about having a place to get treatment if they are chemically injured. William J. Rea, M.D., founder and director of the Environmental Health Center-Dallas (EHC-D), was accused of practicing “pseudoscience” and injecting patients with jet fuel by the Texas Medical Board. The EHC-D recently reported that after years of legal battles Dr. Rea was finally exonerated of all charges, but left with astronomical legal bills. The below letter just came in from the EHC-D sharing the good news, and asking for donations to help cover the costs of Dr. Rea’s legal defense team – please send in a donation if you are able:
It is my great pleasure to inform you that all of the charges by the Texas Medical Board against Dr. William Rea have been dismissed! Dr. Rea extends his utmost appreciation to all of you from around the world, for your unwavering support and encouragement during such a trying time. For years, the Texas Medical Board has been relentless in their pursuit of any proof of wrong-doing by Dr. Rea, in their exhaustive attempts to disallow the practice of environmental medicine, thus eliminating proper medical care for the chemically sick and injured patient.
It is through tireless perseverance, year after year, in front of the Texas Medical Board that Dr. Rea and his team of legal experts championed the validity and necessity of environmental medicine and presented the stark reality of thousands who suffer from the challenges of a much misunderstood disease called environmental illness.
Friends, this victory is immensely significant for thousands of chemically sensitive people from all over the world who continue to benefit from the more than 30 years of medical innovation and insight of Dr. Rea. The doors of the Environmental Health Center – Dallas will continue to remain open as a place of refuge for getting help and understanding. This victory is truly astounding but it has come at a great cost. The legal defense fund set up to finance this herculean effort has been depleted and the legal bills yet to be paid are astronomical. On behalf of Dr. Rea, I am reaching out to you to request contributions, no matter how large or small, be made to assist in our endeavor to retire the cost of this victory.

Again, Dr. Rea wishes to share his exuberance in the preservation of environmental medicine and he extends his sincere gratitude to all of you for your part in making this victory possible.
With Warm Regards,
Barbara J. Pond, Environmental Health Center – Dallas
