One morning, Kenny Ausubel woke up paralyzed on the left side of his body. He went to several doctors but not one of them could diagnose the cause of his sudden paralysis. This prompted him to turn to alternative forms of medicine, and he learnt the reason was a massive exposure to dioxin, a toxic chemical compound.


From this experience, Ausubel developed an interest in environmental solutions. In 1990, he founded Bioneers with his wife, Nina Simons.
