TILT
 n.— «Among subjects to be discussed will be “TILT,” a new disease mechanism also referred to as “toxicant-induced loss of tolerance.” That mechanism appears related to respiratory illnesses such as asthma, neurological conditions including depression and migraine headaches and autoimmune conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, Overstreet said. It also has been linked to addictions to drugs, alcohol and food and how people differ in their reactions to various environmental substances such as pollutants.» —“National experts to gather for ‘groundbreaking’ alcohol, drug abuse, chemical intolerance meeting” I-Newswire Sept. 4, 2005.
