Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ – Published in Federal Gov’t Journal | Reuters

NEW YORK, July 24, 2012

NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Harvard University researchers’ review of fluoride/brain studies concludes “our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.” It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences‘ journal (1), reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF)

“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas,” write Choi et al.

Further, the EPA says fluoride is a chemical “with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”

Fluoride (fluosilicic acid) is added to US water supplies at approximately 1 part per million attempting to reduce tooth decay.

Water was the only fluoride source in the studies reviewed and was based on high water fluoride levels. However, they point out research by Ding (2011) suggested that low water fluoride levels had significant negative associations with children’s intelligence.

Choi et al. write, “Although fluoride may cause neurotoxicity in animal models and acute fluoride poisoning causes neurotoxicity in adults, very little is known of its effects on children’s neurodevelopment. They recommend more brain/fluoride research on children and at individual-level doses.

“It’s senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President.  “Even if fluoridation reduced cavities, is tooth health more important than brain health? It’s time to put politics aside and stop artificial fluoridation everywhere,” says Beeber.

After reviewing fluoride toxicological data, the NRC reported in 2006, “It’s apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.”

Choi’s team writes, “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature.”

Think about how wild this is: scientists have identified a parasite that can make someone suicidal. Without psychologically influencing someone, humans can make other humans want to hurt themselves. Let me say it one more time; we can increase the likelihood of suicide attempts in certain individuals merely by exposing them to a parasite. This is an utterly overwhelming concept to me.

Largest Health Care Fraud Case In U.S. History (HuffPost) & The Sad Irony

2 Jul

This article is about a pharmaceutical company that plead guilty to not disclosing important safety information about drugs, and for promoting two popular drugs, Paxil and Welbutrin, for unapproved uses. The irony is that the FDA approves drugs that kill 100,000 people a year, and allows accelerated approval of drugs, which then allows the drugs to be sold to the public before they have completed clinical testing.

It’s even more ironic when the Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole said they “will not tolerate health care fraud,” considering Obamacare will now be forcing Americans to pay taxes to insurance companies, or one could say, incur penalties for not purchasing a government product. Either way you phrase it, it is wrong, with the bill being sold to Americans under the fraudulence of the fake liberal Obama and his endless list of broken promises and lies. Add to that the fact that Liz Fowler, VP of Wellpoint, one of the biggest insurance companies, had a large part in writing the health care reform bill.  Politico.com said

“As a senior aide to Baucus, she directs the Finance Committee health care staff, enforces deadlines on drafting bill language and coordinates with the White House and other lawmakers. She also troubleshoots, identifying policy and political problems before they ripen. Max Baucus thanked her in writing.

FDLaction.com had the following to say about Fowler:

“I wish to single out one person, and that one person is sitting next to me. Her name is Liz Fowler. Liz Fowler is my chief health counsel. Liz Fowler has put my health care team together. Liz Fowler worked for me many years ago, left for the private sector, and then came back when she realized she could be there at the creation of health care reform because she wanted that to be, in a certain sense, her profession lifetime goal. She put together the White Paper last November–2008–the 87-page document which became the basis, the foundation, the blueprint from which almost all health care measures in all bills on both sides of the aisle came.

Leading Cause of Unnatural Human Death in 20th Century is Democide – You Have No Right To Health or Government & Police Protection

18 Jun

WAKE UP!
NOW IS THE TIME. THE TIME IS NOW. RESIST.

From 1900 to 2000, the leading cause of non-natrual death in humans was democide, the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.  Government has taken 662 million lives in just 100 years, not including those killed in active combat.  It is estimated that government has killed more than six times the number of people killed in all battles combined.

If all 262 million bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5 feet, they would circle the earth ten times.  It’s as if there was a nuclear war, but the casualties were spread over the period of a century. (from www.hawaii.edu)

Many Americans have found themselves  fighting the government to be able to produce, sell, and eat the type of food they desire.  How can the government decide what type of food we sell, produce, and eat in a “free” country, especially if the food is making us healthier?  How can the government arrest people over unpasteurized milk? How free would you feel if you were told you have no right to being healthy, and  no right to allow your children to eat and drink the foods you feel are best for them?

John Stossel’s Illegal Everything   *~*MUST SEE*~*

Lemonade stands, raw milk, fast food, and recording police are things that could earn you not just fines, but also a place in jail.  The bitter irony rings in my head as I remember asking my mother at a very young age, “If drugs are illegal, why do they allow people to eat McDonald’s food?” Of course I was no more than eight years old and was only trying to keep others safe. On a field trip to the museum, we were shown over-sized models of clogged arteries, with french fries and hamburgers named as the culprit. At school, they told us drugs were bad. They also told us fast food was bad. I always knew I was a prophet…or was I just a child bending to engineered consent 20 years in advance?

In a dismissal letter dated April 26, 2010 from The United States District Court For The Northern District of Iowa Western Division concerning the right to purchase and consume unpasteurized milk, the court stated:

Plaintiffs’ assertion of afundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish. In addition, courts have consistently refused to extrapolate a generalized right to “bodily and physical health” from the Supreme Court’s narrow substantive due process precedents regarding abortion, intimate relations, and the refusal of lifesaving medical treatment. See Glucksberg, 521 U.S. at 721 (warning that the fact “[t]hat many of the rights and liberties protected by the Due Process Clause sound in personal autonomy does not warrant the sweeping conclusion that any and all important, intimate, and personal decisions are so protected); see also Cowan v. United States, 5 F. Supp. 2d 1235, 1242 (N.D. Okla. 1998) (rejecting a claim that the plaintiff had the fundamental “right to take whatever treatment he wishes due to his terminal condition regardless of whether the FDA approves the treatment”). Finally, even if such a right did exist, it would not render
FDA’s regulations unconstitutional because prohibiting the interstate sale and distribution of unpasteurized milk promotes “bodily and physical health.”

I may be reading this wrong, but did the court rule that, if the right existed, prohibiting the sale and distribution of raw milk wouldn’t  be unconstitutional because the FDA’s regulations restricting food choice are to keep us safe and promote “bodily and physical health”?

The Time Times Sunday Night Cinema Presents: Virus

17 Jun

Another week of governmental abuse and news reports about zombies awaits us, so rest up tonight and watch the full-length post-apocalyptic 1980 sci-fi flick, Virus.  Watch the American version or the original  Japanese version (in English with Japanese subtitles) or both. At the time it was made, Virus was the most expensive Japanese film ever, but it was not successful at the box office.

So far I have only watched some of the Japanese version and none of the American version, but at about 2 minutes and 28 seconds in the original Japanese film, someone says “launch the surveillance drones.” At about 3 minutes and 10 seconds, an earthquake is mentioned. I’m curious to see what predictive programming  I notice in the movie.

Click here to jump to the movies or keep reading for a summary of the movie.

Here is the wikipedia summary for Virus:

The movie opens with a British nuclear submarine called the HMS Nereid entering Tokyo Bay in the then-future of December 1983. The ship’s crew and Japanese seismologist Yoshizumi sends a reconnaissance drone to search the city for any survivors, only to find decayed bodies. It also gathers air samples of something called MM88.

After the movie credits, the film goes back to the then-future of February 1982, where a shady transfer is happening between an East German scientist, Dr. Krause, and a group of Americans. It is revealed that MM88 is a deadly virus created accidentally by an American geneticist that amplifies the potency of any other virus or bacteria it comes in contact with. The scientist wants a sample taken to a colleague in Switzerland, Dr. Leisenauer, so a vaccine can be developed. However, the Americans, who are actually secret agents, are only interested in recovering the MM88, which was stolen from a lab in the US the year before. Escaping an attack by East German soldiers (where Krause is killed), the spies crash their plane and the virus is released, creating a pandemic initially known as the “Italian Flu”.

The governments of the world watch helplessly as their citizens fall ill and die by the millions. Too late does American President Richardson learn from Senator Barkley and Dr. Meyer that the Italian Flu is in fact MM88, which had been part of a secret study for a new biological weapon led by Colonel Rankin.

Within seven months, the world’s entire population has died off except for 863 scientists and support personnel wintering in Antarctica. The virus becomes active at a warmer temperature than -10 degrees Celsius, and the polar winter has spared the 855 men and eight women stationed on the southern continent. The British nuclear submarine HMS Nereid, which was on patrol before the epidemic began, joins the scientists after sinking a Soviet submarine whose infected crew attempt to make landfall near Palmer Station.

The survivors set up a government to deal with the realities of their situation, including the obvious problem of several hundred men living with only eight women. The film comes full circle when the Nereid heads for Tokyo Bay, on its first mission under the “Federal Council of Antarctica.”

However, just as the group begins to repopulate their new home, it is revealed that an earthquake will set off the United States nuclear arsenal, since Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Garland activated the Automated Reaction System (ARS) before his death, believing that the Soviet Union would use the confusion caused by the pandemic to attack on North America.

The Soviets have their own version of the ARS and will fire off their weapons when the American missiles hit their targets. Unfortunately for the survivors, one of the Soviet missiles is aimed at Palmer Station, which is attributed to the Kremlin’s erroneous belief that the research station was a cover for a secret missile base. Yoshizumi and Major Carter embark aboard the Nereid on a mission to shut down the ARS before the earthquake strikes, protected from MM88 by an experimental vaccine developed by Dr. Latour.

The submarine arrives at Washington, D.C. and Yoshizumi and Carter make a rush for the ARS command bunker underneath the White House. They reach the room too late and all but a few men and the women (who left aboard an icebreaker at the same time as the Nereid) perish in the nuclear exchange. Over the course of years Yoshizumi walks back towards Antarctica. Upon reaching Tierra del Fuego in 1988 [1], he encounters the remaining survivors from the icebreaker, including Marit, a Norwegian widow he fell in love with after his pregnant girlfriend in Tokyo died from the epidemic.

Get your daily dose of predictive programming with the American or Japanese versions of Virus (both in English).
