Investigative Reporting by ABC-TV affiliate, non-biased, on Fluoride

Are the masses being dumbed down?

http://www.vancnews.com/the_warren_record/opinion/article_ee2979ba-38d3-11e2-9a2c-001a4bcf887a.html



On Thursday, Nov. 15, a Durham ABC news affiliate, WTVD-11, aired a powerful and honest investigative news story on water fluoridation that correctly questioned the safety of the unnecessary chemical additive.

Many who oppose water fluoridation consider it to be a form of compulsory mass medication. They argue that consent by all water consumers cannot be achieved, nor can water suppliers accurately control the exact levels of fluoride that individuals receive, nor monitor their response.
Infant formula when mixed with fluoridated water delivers 100-200 times more fluoride than breast milk.

 A news report published in Federal Government Journal in July stated:

 Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ -

Children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas.

 Is there a deliberate effort by the government to dumb down the masses?

Is a dumber population something that is desired by the controlling class? Hitler once said, “How fortunate for the leaders that men do not think.” An educated population knows its rights, understands the issues and takes action when it does not approve of what is going on.

Watch the non-biased, investigative report that aired on ABC-TV, Channel 11, on the Durham City Council's website:  http://durhamagainstfluoride.com/?blogsub=confirming#subscribe-blog

Reverse Vote in Pinellas County, Florida

Tuesday, November 27th, Pinellas County Commissioners reversed their anti-fluoride vote of last October 2011 to put fluoride back into their drinking water. 

Pro-fluoride advocates not only spent a lot of money and present their standard repeat of it being "safe and effective," they also voted out the commissioners who had removed fluoride in the first place, and replaced them with pro-fluoride candidates who used pro-fluoride for their entire campaign. 

Turns out, one of the county commissioners who voted fluoride out last year, didn't get voted out this year because, as per one of the below newspapers, he'd allegedly supported fluoride all through this year's election cycle.  Now he has publicly made a very sane, rational, and actually truthful obervation against fluoride, and his statement comes after his voting against putting fluoride back into the water this week.  He got outvoted by the other pro-fluoride commissioners this week, 6-1.  It will be back into the water by the end of this year, as per one article below, and will be back in by March 2013, as per the other article.  Interesting...

Chlorine mixed with ammonia = Chloramines in our tap water in addition to fluoride, pharma drugs, and other toxins!

Chloramines May Raise Your Water’s Level of Toxic Unregulated Disinfection Byproducts

November 27, 2012
Dr. Mercola

Drinking Water

Story at-a-glance

  • More than one in five Americans are drinking tap water that’s been treated with a derivative of chlorine known as chloramine. This disinfectant is formed by mixing chlorine with ammonia; chloramine is often used alongside chlorine as a “secondary” disinfectant designed to remain in your water longer as it travels through the water system
  • Water treated with monochloramine (the most common form of chloramine used to disinfect drinking water) may contain higher concentrations of unregulated disinfection byproducts (DBPs) – the risks of which are unknown
  • When chlorine is replaced with chloramines in drinking water, it raises the amount of lead that leaches into water from lead pipes
  • No scientific studies on chloramine’s effects on your skin or respiratory tract via inhalation (such as exposure during a shower or bath) have been conducted
  • Chloramine is toxic to frogs and other amphibians, reptiles, fish and other aquatic and marine life
  • A whole-house filtration system is therefore your best choice to remove chlorine, chloramine, ammonia, DBPs and other contaminants from all of your water sources (bath, shower and tap)

Dr. Adams, DDS/Dr. McGuire, DDS: Videos - "Symptoms of Mercury Poisoning" and "Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth"

Dr. Alison Adams, DDS This video explains how mercury primarily derived from dental amalgam fillings (or some vaccines with mercury adjunct) can cause a host of mental, physical and emotional symptoms and details over 150 recognised symptoms of chronic mercury poisoning by the dentist, naturopath and author of Chronic Fatigue, ME and Fibromyalgia: The Natural Recovery Plan, Alison Adams. For more information see: www.thenaturalrecoveryplan.com




Dr. Tom McGuire, DDS Mercury is a powerful poison and if you have amalgam (silver) fillings you are being poisoned by them every day. Dr. Tom McGuire's 'Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth' Video demonstration proves that more mercury vapor is released by brushing a silver amalgam filling than is allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace. Dr. McGuire's video also describes the symptoms of chronic mercury poisoning and how to find a mercury safe dentist. AUDIO QUALITY NOTE: This video is best experienced on laptop or desktop computers. There are known, but unfortunately irresolvable issues with audio quality when played on hand-held devices. For more information please visit:

Healthy Thanksgiving Meal

Story at-a-glance

  • For a healthful Thanksgiving dinner, opt for organic pasture-raised turkey, organic vegetables, and organic potatoes. Items best forgone include stuffing and bread, while canned cranberry sauce can be replaced with fresh, raw cranberries, and simmered bone broth is a healthy replacement for gravy
  • While white meat is typically more popular than dark meat, from a nutrition and health standpoint the dark meat is far preferable, as it’s higher in healthful fat and lower in protein
  • My own dessert creation, a chocolate candy recipe is included, which is chockfull of healthy fats and antioxidants, while containing virtually no sugar

8 simple steps for a healthy Thanksgiving holiday

Sat. Nov. 17, 2012 by Roy Dittman, OMD, MH, DM

SB 1310, Dietary Supplement Labeling Act is still attacking DSHEA

Bayer Buys Schiff for $1.2 Billion

Why Supplement Companies are So Attractive to the Drug Industry

Many Nutritional Companies, Trade Groups Already Controlled by Big Pharma

The FDA is Also Attacking the Supplement Industry

Why You Don't Want Your Supplements Even More Controlled

Get Involved to Protect Your Right to Dietary Supplements

The supplement industry is in a fragile state right now, and the outcomes of some pending legislation could be a major turning point. There is, for instance, still work to be done to prevent passage of S 1310, Dietary Supplement Labeling Act, introduced by Senator Durbin of Illinois in June 2011. This bill threatens the dietary supplement industry by giving the FDA power to regulate vitamins and other supplements as if they were drugs. The act was his reaction to a scandal surrounding Lazy Cakes, cupcakes with added melatonin to help adults fight insomnia. Some adults who purchased the cakes fed them to toddlers, and the toddlers subsequently became ill.
If you live in Illinois, contact Senator Durbin. Tell him—or whomever your representative is—to stop this overreach of power.

NASA approved and BYU approved!

Latest research on camu camu

Camu camu is used for anti-aging, to protect the nervous system, improve mental performance, ease inflammation such as rheumatism, boost the immune system, improve vision, and fight viruses. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties have been found to be beneficial in preventing atherosclerosis, much more effectively than vitamin C tablets containing equivalent amounts of vitamin C. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18922386)

Additionally, the anti-inflammatory properties of camu camu make it a helpful joint supplement as it helps repair ligaments and tendons, as well as joints and cartilage by supporting collagen production (http://camucamu.org/). Proper nutrition improves muscle tone, shape, and function. (http://www.naturalnews.com/Report_Camu_Camu_3.html)

In addition to strengthening the immune system, camu camu is used to improve energy and mood. In recent years, alternative practitioners have been using camu camu supplements to address ADD and ADHD. It is good for the gums, eyes, skin, hair, and nails. Camu camu fights infertility. It supports a healthy liver and was found to suppress liver injury (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20208347). It benefits the brain by supporting serotonin levels to improve sleep, memory, and mood, as well as general support for overall brain chemistry, including fighting migraines. Camu camu supports a healthy nervous system, improves vision and guards against cataracts and glaucoma. (http://www.naturalnews.com/Report_Camu_Camu_3.html)

Recent studies have found that the peel of the ripe fruit has a high concentration of anthocyanins, a natural food color. Several genotypes have been found, including some that have a high concentration of citric acid. (http://www.family-content.com/health/herbs/camu-camu, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16302773)

South Americans have used camu camu successfully in treating Herpes Simplex, Shingles, and Eppstein-Barr viruses. Rainforest peoples make camu camu into a hair tonic also, using it to repair split ends and restore shine, strength, vitality, and silky texture. (http://camucamu.org/)

Camu camu is an anti-viral (fights cold and flu), anti-inflammatory (eases arthritis and other inflammatory diseases), an anti-atherosclerotic (prevents plaque buildup on arteries), powerful antioxidant (cellular protection), anti-septic (kills bacteria), anti-mutagenic (prevents cancer-causing genetic mutations), hypotensive (lowers blood pressure), anti-ulcerous, anti-gingivitic (fights gingivitis), anti-hepatitic (protects against liver disorders) and antidepressant. It has no contraindications, other than those associated with excessive, prolonged use of vitamin C, such as nausea and diarrhea, if you use too much for too long. (http://www.naturalnews.com/Report_Camu_Camu_5.html)

The demand for camu camu and its involved process from harvest to powder/supplement, shipped worldwide, means it is a more expensive supplement than many other sources of vitamin C. Still, it is a powerful superfood rich in health-boosting phytonutrients that has changed a lot of lives.

(Sidebar Note from Ken's Staff Member:  NASA searched the world for the best superfoods for their astronauts to stay healthy while in space and found that quinoa and camu camu, both from Peru,were the world's best to grow on their space shuttles.  Also, Brigham Young University [BYU] in Provo, Utah also did years of research on the best superfoods to feed third-world countries, and both of Peru's quinoa and camu camu came out at the top of their list!)

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Fluoridation opponents have submitted enough signatures to place the issue before Portland voters in 2014.

The city of Portland reported Thursday that the political action committee Clean Water Portland brought enough valid signatures to put a fluoride referendum on the May 2014 ballot. The petition had over 33,000 valid signatures, the city confirmed, over 13,000 more than was required.

Petition organizers are challenging the Portland City Council's unanimous approval of a plan in September to fluoridate the city’s Bull Run water supply by March 2014. The vote came after a coalition of health organizations known as Everybody Deserves Healthy Teeth began lobbying the city on the topic.

Deborah Scroggin with the Office of the City Auditor said the city council now has 30 days to put forth a new ordinance that would repeal its Sept. 12 fluoridation decision. That would mean the issue would not even go to voters. If the council does not pass a new ordinance, the city’s fluoridation plans are halted pending the 2014 referendum vote.

The city council also has the option of calling a special election on the issue at any time prior to May of 2014, Scroggin disclosed.


Portland is the largest city in the U.S. that does not put fluoride in its water.

According to the Associated Press, Portland voters have three times rejected fluoridation.

'Proof of Heaven' documents existence of afterlife, multiverse, intelligent life beyond Earth, multidimensional realities

...Long before this book was ever written, Dr. Alexander was a practicing neurosurgeon and a lifelong "science skeptic." He did not believe in consciousness, free will or the existence of a non-physical spirit. Trained in western medical school and surrounded by medical colleagues who are deeply invested in the materialism view of the universe, Dr. Alexander believed that so-called "consciousness" was only an illusion created by the biochemical functioning of the brain.

This is a view held by virtually all of today's mainstream scientists, including physicists like Stephen Hawking who say that human beings are nothing more than "biological robots" with no consciousness and no free will.

Dr. Alexander would have held this view to his own death bed had it not been for his experiencing an event so bizarre and miraculous that it defies all conventional scientific explanation: Dr. Alexander "died" for seven days and experienced a vivid journey into the afterlife. He then returned to his physical body, experienced a miraculous healing, and went on to write the book "Proof of Heaven."

...It all started when e.coli bacteria infected Dr. Alexander's spinal fluid and outer cerebrum. The e.coli began to literally eat his brain away, and he went into an extremely violent fit of seizures, verbal outbursts and muscular spasms before lapsing into a brain-dead coma.

Huge fluoride victory in Wichita: Voters put their foot down and say no to the water supply chemical additive


Monday, November 12, 2012

"...The next time somebody tries to tell you that there is no scientific evidence proving that fluoride chemicals are harmful to human health, simply point them to a new study review recently published in the Institute of Environmental Health Sciences journal Environmental Health Perspectives that shows, for something like the 25th time now, that fluoride damages brain development and leads to significantly lower IQ levels in humans," writes Ethan Huff for Natural News.

The study review, citing researchers from Harvard and China, noted there was "strong indications" that exposure to fluoride - for young, developing children in particular - can lead to improper cognitive and brain development.



"[O]ur results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children's neurodevelopment," wrote Anna Choi, a research scientist at Harvard, and her colleagues in their report. "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."

Paul Connett, Ph.D., director of the Fluoride Action Network, pointed out that dozens of prior studies essentially reached similar conclusions.

'I don't trust the water'

"This is the 24th study that has found this association, but this study is stronger than the rest because the authors have controlled for key confounding variables and in addition to correlating lowered IQ with levels of fluoride in the water, the authors found a correlation between lowered IQ and fluoride levels in children's blood. This brings us closer to a cause and effect relationship between fluoride exposure and brain damage in children," he said.

"What is also striking is that the levels of the fluoride in the community where the lowered IQs were recorded were lower than the EPA's so-called 'safe' drinking water standard for fluoride of 4 ppm and far too close for comfort to the levels used in artificial fluoridation programs (0.7 - 1.2 ppm)," he added.

But none of this hard data mattered much to the fluoride pushers in Wichita. There, pro-fluoridation group Wichitans for Health Teeth tried to compound the issue and muddy the waters.

Fortunately; however, most voters saw through the smokescreen.

"I pushed no, because it can mess up your teeth," LaGina Walker, 34, told the Wichita Eagle. "And I don't trust the water, period."

Fluoride Action Network (FAN) Update:

It is with great excitement and satisfaction that FAN can report that the people of Wichita, Kansas--the second largest non-fluoridated city in the U.S.--resoundingly rejected water fluoridation last night, just like they did in 1968 and 1978. The vote wasn’t even close, with a margin of 60% opposed to fluoridation to 40% in favor. The decision will save taxpayers over $2.3 million dollars this year, and ensure that more than 600,000 residents continue to receive fluoride-free drinking water.

The ground game in Wichita was an inspiring sight to behold, with a dedicated and well-organized group of citizen campaigners who took on the behemoth dental-lobby and defeated them with the truth. The groups leading the charge included Fluoride Free Kansas, Wichitans Opposed to Fluoridation, Pure Water for Wichita, and the Kansas Republican Assembly.  Today, local campaigners issued this inspirational response to the election results.

This amazing outcome in Wichita is a major blow to the pro-fluoride lobby, and is a prime example of why proponents of forced fluoridation prefer to lobby city councilors and legislators behind closed doors--as they did in Portland, Oregon and tried to do initially in Wichita--rather than face the public with a fluoridation vote. It demonstrates that even when the pro-fluoridation national machine (e.g., Pew, Delta Dental, ADA, CDC, etc) descends upon a city with their bottomless pit of money and media endorsements, truth and common sense can still prevail if the people rise up and refuse to let their public water supply be polluted with the phosphate industry's fluoride waste.  

While fluoride-free campaigners focused on public education and generating a city-wide debate prior to the vote, proponents took their campaign strategy to new lows by ignoring a science-based discussion and instead attacked and ridiculed the credibility of the fluoride-free movement and Dr. Paul Connett. (Read Connett’s response) Anyone who heard Dr. Connett speak at any of his 6 presentations in Wichita, or heard or saw him on radio and TV programs, or has read his book, The Case Against Fluoride, knows that the claims made by fluoridationists were over the top and very misleading. Clearly their attacks failed. And it revealed how little of real substance proponents had to add to the fluoridation debate.

Congratulations Wichita -- you have remained in good company (e.g., London, Paris, Stockholm, Berlin, Copenhagen, Oslo, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Tokyo) in keeping fluoride out of your water. This victory truly is “Something to Smile About”.

Crescent City, California 
Wichita wasn’t the only American city that voted to end fluoridation on Election Day. The California community of Crescent City voted 524-402 to remove fluoride from the drinking water until any chemical supplier on earth can vouch for the additive’s safety “for all customers.” Local proponents argued effectively that “since the manufacturers of hydrofluosilicic acid will not submit the toxicological data or the list of contaminants in their product, it is technically illegal to put this substance in the water.”
The decision will impact an estimated 14,000 area residents, and will save taxpayers more than $20,000 each year. Congratulation Crescent City!
 
Sincerely,

Cell Phone Gave Man a Tumor, According to Major Court Ruling

November 07 2012

Cell Phone Use

Story at-a-glance

  • Italy’s supreme court has ruled that a man’s brain tumor was linked to his heavy cell phone use.
  • The man reportedly used a cell phone for five to six hours a day for 12 years while talking to business clients; he developed a tumor in his trigeminal nerve, at a location very close to where the phone came into contact with his head.
  • Even if you don’t use a cell phone for hours each day, research has revealed that after just 50 minutes of cell phone exposure, the emitted radiation increases brain cell activity in the region closest to the cell phone antenna.
  • Another analysis projected a very large increase in brain cancer incidence resulting from widespread mobile phone use beginning in approximately 15 years.
  • A cell phone is a two-way microwave-radiating device that has been associated with not only brain tumors but also salivary gland tumors, weakened sperm production, blood brain barrier permeability, fetal impacts, and hearing loss and tinnitus, among other issues.
  • When it comes to cell phone use, distance is your friend. Adults should not keep a cell phone in a pocket or on the body, and should use an air-tube headset or the speakerphone feature as much as possible. Children should rarely, if ever, use cell phones.

Aspartame Associated with Increased Risk of Blood Cancers in Long-Term Human Study

Diet Soda

Story at-a-glance

  • The longest ever human aspartame study, spanning 22 years, found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia in men
  • Leukemia was associated with diet soda intake in both sexes
  • The study was done out of Harvard, but after caving to pressure from industry, a press release was issued that minimized the impact of the study
  • The long-term nature of this study is crucial as one of the primary tricks companies use to hide the toxicity of their products is short-term tests of a few weeks. The longest study prior to this one was only four and half months, far too short to reveal any toxicity from chronic exposure
  • Another trick, especially with aspartame, is to use animal models and not humans. This is problematic because animals are protected from methanol toxicity, unlike humans
  • Another recent study found that compared with sucrose (regular table sugar), saccharin and aspartame caused greater weight gain in adult rats, and this weight gain was unrelated to caloric intake

Please also share this important message from Dr. Paul Connett

This past week, FAN’s Director Paul Connett, PhD. travelled to Wichita to speak with fluoride-free campaigners, the local media, and local officials. Two of those speaking engagements were recorded and are now available on YouTube, including Dr. Connett’s interview on the radio show “Extraordinary Year with Tim Bravo”, and his presentation before the Sedgwick County Commission.

Prior to Dr. Connett’s appearances in Wichita, the pro-fluoride lobby stuck to their strategy of ridiculing the fluoride-free movement rather than focusing on sound science, but changed their target from the entire movement to Dr. Connett. Rather than publicly debate or challenge Dr. Connett face-to-face (or even attend a single one of his events) fluoride proponents chose to attack his credibility with inaccurate and malicious claims lobbed from afar. Prior to his visit, the dental-lobby’s local shell group, Wichitans for Healthy Teeth published and distributed the following flyer that attacks Dr. Connett and the campaign for fluoride-free water.


Here is Dr. Connett’s point-by-point response to the flyer along with hyperlinks and references.


Asheville Debate & Campaign

A well-organized campaign is turning up the heat on city councilors in Asheville, North Carolina. The group Fluoride Free Asheville (Facebook page) has officially launched their campaign to end fluoridation and will be calling on their City Councilors to introduce and pass a resolution ending the practice that has been plaguing residents for nearly 50 years.

Fluoride Free Asheville has two important upcoming events. First, they will be holding an organizational meeting this Thursday, November 8th. The following Monday, November 12, the group will be hosting a Fluoridation Discussion featuring speakers on both sides of the issue at the University of North Carolina-Asheville.

If you live in the Asheville area and would like to get involved, please attend these two important events. Please also share these with others you may know who live in or near Asheville.



Sincerely,

Stuart Cooper

Campaign Manager


High-Dose of Omega-3 Fats Saved Two Lives from Traumatic Brain Injury

Fish Oil Helped Save Our Son

Story at-a-glance

  • 17-year-old Bobby Ghassemi, a former high school football player who was left in a coma after a devastating car accident, regained his health after physicians administered high-dose omega-3 fats through a feeding tube.
  • Your brain is 60 percent fat and DHA (docosahexanoic acid, a type of omega-3 fat) alone makes up about 15 percent to 20 percent of your brain's cerebral cortex; it's found in high levels in your neurons -- the cells of your central nervous system, where it provides structural support.
  • Animal studies as well as another documented case in a coal miner with severe brain damage suggest omega-3 fats are highly beneficial for helping to trigger the brain’s healing process after traumatic brain injury.
  • Despite the apparent benefits, high-dose omega-3 therapy is still considered an “unorthodox” treatment for traumatic brain injury, and is not routinely ordered as a standard of care; if a family member suffers from a traumatic brain injury, you may have to be their advocate to have this treatment administered.

Senators Durbin, Blumenthal "Deeply Concerned" about Poor Manufacturing Standards (of dietary supplements)

Hospital Errors Kill Well Over 180,000 Americans Annually – Why are Super-Safe Supplements and Natural Health Under Attack?
 
Dr. Mercola, M.D. and D.O.

When Consumer Reports speaks, people listen – and this time the consumer advocacy agency is advising you on where to get your care – or not – if you need to go to the hospital. It's the first time Consumer Reports has investigated hospital safety,1 and the results show hospital ratings don't always match public opinions. Some of the most well-known hospitals got the worst ratings...

Story at-a-glance

  • Consumer Reports' investigation into hospital safety shows some of the most well-known hospitals received the worst ratings. Sacred Heart of Chicago was ranked the most dangerous in the country. A clinic in Billings, Montana was ranked the safest, based on six criteria, including hospital-acquired infections, over-treatment, and death rates
  • More than 2.25 million Americans will likely die from medical harm in this decade – the equivalent of wiping out the entire populations of North Dakota, Rhode Island, and Vermont
  • Recent data from the UK shows that compared to supplements, you are 900 times more likely to die from food poisoning, and 300,000 times more likely to die from a preventable medical injury during a hospital stay in the UK
  • Adverse reactions to pharmaceutical drugs are 62,000 times more likely to kill you than nutritional supplements
  • Senators Durbin and Richard Blumenthal have sent letters to three natural and herbal products organizations, stating they are “deeply concerned about the poor manufacturing standards that expose consumers to potentially serious health risks.” The Senators have requested information about the “industry's plans for improving the successful adoption of current manufacturing practices”
