Childhood Obesity

Story at-a-glance

  • Childhood obesity has more than doubled in young children and tripled in adolescents over the past 30 years; 18 percent of American children between the ages of six and 11 now fall in the obese category
  • Five percent of American children are “severely obese,” which puts them at grave risk for chronic diseases typically reserved for adults, such as heart and liver disease
  • Ironically, the celebrities chosen for the First Lady’s Let’s Move! campaign are the same people telling them to eat Oreos, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Burger King, and to drink Pepsi and other “designer” sodas
  • While most kids surely need more exercise, it must be understood that more exercise is not enough to counter the ill effects of a high refined-fructose, processed food diet
  • You do not get fat because you eat too many calories and don't exercise enough. Your consumption of grains and sugars, especially fructose, will determine whether or not you're able to manage your weight and maintain optimal health

Fighting colds & flu naturally - what to do when there's lightening - Anti-fluoride poll ahead in Sudbury - NZ Health District's facebook ruined by anti-fluoride hacker

Beat Back Cold and Flus with... Garlic!
September 23, 2013                    

Story at-a-glance

  • Garlic has long been hailed for its healing powers, especially against infectious diseases like cold and flu. It has immune boosting effects, and fresh garlic is also a potent antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal agent
  • Studies have demonstrated more than 150 beneficial health effects of garlic, including reducing your risk for heart disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and various cancers such as brain, lung and prostate cancer
  • Research has shown that those taking garlic daily for three months had fewer colds than those who took a placebo, and, when they did come down with a cold, the duration of illness was shorter
  • Garlic must be used fresh to give you optimal health benefits. To stimulate the process that catalyzes the formation of allicin, compress a fresh clove with a spoon prior to swallowing it, or put it through your juicer with other veggies

Readers of two minds on fluoride Monday, September 23, 2013

This week the Sudbury Star asked its readers whether or not the City of Greater Sudbury should discontinue the fluoridation of water.
Online, 49% of respondents voted yes to stopping fluoridation, while 40% favoured the practice.

Waikato DHB facebook page bombarded

Waikato District Health Board Monday 23 September 2013, 10:41AM
Media release from Waikato District Health Board

Waikato District Health Board has had to block all comments to their Facebook page after a member of the anti-fluoridation community created two fake profiles using one of its doctor's identities.

A fake Facebook profile was created using Waikato DHB Medical Officer of Health and community water fluoridation expert Dr Felicity Dumble's name and photograph.

The other page used her name and a bag of chemicals as the profile picture.

The Waikato District Health Board and Making Sense of Fluoride pages were bombarded with postings by the two fake profiles.

The content was a jumbled message claiming fluoride was a toxic waste that was killing children, and contained numerous profanities.

"We recognise this may be someone on the fringe of the debate but it does show what some people will do to try to discredit our health professionals," said Waikato DHB Director of Media and Communications Mary Anne Gill.

"It reinforces why we made the decision not to attend the meeting organised by Hamilton City Council on 30 September."

She said the "tirade" had meant Waikato DHB was forced to close their Facebook profile to all comments and that the matter was reported to Facebook administration and the police immediately.

"It's a shame because there was some great discussion happening on the page and some genuine enquiries around water fluoridation.

"For now however, the page will remain closed to comments however we are still able to put information up as we have it so hope people continue to visit it or our website

"Our Facebook page is also used for other health messages, recruitment and in addition members of the public often publicly thank our staff for the care they've received. It is disappointing we've had to do this. But we simply can't have our staff being abused or threatened."

Videos - Plants affecting our Health - plus an update on flu vaccine - how to prevent and repair Alzheimer's brain damage

High-Performance Agriculture Can Increase Your Garden Yield Eight-Fold
Sept. 22, 2013
"...John Kempf, an Amish farmer, is one of the leaders in the field of high-performance agriculture. He has taken a leadership role—somewhat similar to the way I have in natural medicine—in teaching people how to achieve these results. He’s the founder and CEO of Advancing Eco Agriculture,1 and runs an organic, high-performance farm in Ohio.
The results you can achieve when you apply the principles he teaches are truly astounding. As Kempf says:
“You have to have different expectations and you have to begin managing your crops differently. For example, when you are expecting to produce 60 to 70 pounds of tomatoes per plant, you no longer plant the plants 12 inches apart.
That doesn’t work logistically. You have to begin spacing tomato plants two and a half to three feet apart. But all of a sudden, you only need three tomato plants instead of 36!” ...

Ontario vs Quebec, one with fluoride, one without, but cavities are the same - plus Toronto fighting the fluoride battle now

Sunday Sep 15 | Posted by: nyscof

Fluoridation may not do much for cavities

When it comes to fluoridating drinking water, Ontario and Quebec couldn't be further apart. Ontario has the country's highest rate of adding the tooth-enamel-strengthening chemical into municipal supplies, while Quebec has one of the lowest, with practically no one drinking fluoridated water.

But surprisingly, the two provinces have very little difference in tooth-decay rates, a finding that is likely to intensify the ongoing controversy over the practice of adding fluoride to water as a public health measure.

Hundreds to Rally Against Water Fluoridation in Toronto, Ontario this Saturday

Hundreds of Toronto residents plan to peacefully assemble at City Hall on September 21st, 2013 from 1-5pm to end water fluoridation in Toronto.

Press Release
TORONTO — So far 350 people have confirmed their attendance on the Facebook page and over 1,000 have signed the online petition.

Hydrofluorosilicic acid has been added to the community water supply in Toronto for 50 years. It is a toxic waste byproduct of phosphate fertilizer production that is commonly used for fluoridation in The United States and Canada. It has been shown to cause leaching of lead from pipes and is contaminated with arsenic, mercury and radionuclides.

In the past two decades, a burgeoning body of research has linked exposure to artificially fluoridated water to serious health problems, including: cancer, thyroid dysfunction, skeletal and dental fluorosis, and cognitive impairment. Furthermore, recent peer-reviewed research demonstrates that exposure to fluoridated water may significantly lower IQ in children, even in low concentrations (Choi, Sun, Zhang & Grandjean, 2012; Ding et al., 2011).

Several major North America cities have recently voted to stop fluoridation of their water, including: Calgary Alberta, Albuquerque New Mexico, and Windsor Ontario. In 2011, Toronto City Council considered halting water fluoridation due to budget cuts, but ultimately voted in favor of keeping it.
On September 21st, 2013 concerned citizens of Toronto will gather to send a peaceful and powerful message: they do not want this unnecessary and harmful chemical added to Toronto’s water supply any longer!

Because fluoride is an ingredient in sarin gas, an anti-fluoride protestor allegedly threatened to use fluoride against a New Zealand government official who mandated fluoride in New South Wales after many of the towns had been without any fluoride

Anti-fluoride protester (in New Zealand)makes Sarin gas threat

Published: 4:14PM Thursday September 12, 2013

An anti-fluoride protester has accosted the New South Wales chief medical officer and threatened to attack her with the poison gas used in Syria.

"We know your face, I have friends in Syria, do you know of Sarin gas?" Dr. Kerry Chant was told after giving a submission to Lismore city council on the benefits of fluoride last night.

The remark was made to her in the car park by an "angry observer", according to the state opposition Labor party's health spokesman Andrew McDonald.

It followed the local council's decision to overturn a ban on fluoride in drinking supplies.

"(She) had flown to Lismore simply to encourage the council to follow NSW government policy," Dr McDonald told parliament, after introducing a Labor bill today that would force local authorities to fluoridate their drinking water.

"This behaviour is typical of some of the more extreme elements of the anti-fluoride debate."

Dr. McDonald is calling on the NSW government to act to protect the dental health of the state's children and to end the "anti-fluoridation circus".

The government needs to step in and take control of the issue in order to protect councils and individuals from extreme groups, he said.

Local councils can currently choose not to add the dental health booster to their water supplies.

The legislation, which comes after a fluoride backlash by some communities, means the state government will be able to force local authorities to fluoridate public water supplies.

About 300,000 people in NSW currently do not have access to fluoridated water, which Dr McDonald described as "one of the most cost-effective health interventions ever used".

"Every day without fluoride puts a child at risk of preventable dental decay," he told the lower house.
"It's time for the New South Wales government to step in and take control."

It follows several recent attempts from local councils to block fluoridation.

Last night, Lismore Council overturned a ban on fluoride after seven years of lobbying by local health professionals.

Dr. McDonald said the government could not afford to risk local councils being intimidated into opposing fluoridation by "a fringe element" of the community.

"For many of these children the damage has already been done," he said.

"It's time for this anti-fluoridation circus to end."

Abundant Living

There is much concern about the effects of fluoridated water nationally. Ken Howard of Abundant Living is one of those concerned people.

“There have been no warnings issued in Utah to date. Your public water supply is fluoridated. Fluoridated water should not be used or added to infant formula, foods or drinks intended for babies 12 months of age or younger, in order to avoid dental fluorosis,” Ken says.

Why the urgent warning?

“Dental fluorosis is not a cosmetic effect, but the first visible sign that a child has been overexposed to fluoride,” Ken says.

Ken first became aware of the issue of fluoridation in the 1990s. He understood the government’s explanation that the purpose of fluoridating the public water supply was to reduce cavities, but nagging doubts persisted. He began to research the issue, and what he found was troubling to him.

“The toxicity of fluoride is comparable to arsenic and lead. In fact, it’s in the same category, and it seems illogical to put it in water, even in a diluted state,” Ken says.

Fluoride was used in the 1940s as a necessary ingredient to enrich uranium to build the atomic bomb. The U.S. government backed research to show fluoride was safe in highly diluted amounts, and would be effective in reducing dental cavities.

“It became a political campaign to push adding fluoride in public water supplies, but it was done without adequate scientific testing. The sad and corrupt part is that the testing experiments were terminated early, and water fluoridation was whitewashed. Subsequent testing was short term, and used a different compound than what was being used in over 90 percent of the fluoridated water systems. The effects of highly diluted fluoride are very subtle and slow acting. It takes time to see the signs of damage. Research shows fluoride produces dental fluorosis and increases susceptibility/vulnerability to cancer, kidney damage, neurologic/brain impairments, bone fractures, lowered thyroid function, increases infertility, hyperactivity or lethargy,” Ken says.

It remains against the law to dump fluoride on the ground, in streams or in the ocean. Fluoride is also a by-product of the fertilizer industry.

“This is mass medication without a chance of choice. This violates the standard in doctor-patient relationships. There are other ways to get fluoride, but water fluoridation removes freedom of choice. Ingesting fluoride via drinking water has little or no effect on the prevention of dental cavities. Topical application, as in toothpaste, has some beneficial effect,” Ken says.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Union of Water Safety Scientists spent 11 years researching fluoride, and unanimously voted against using it in the water supply in 2000. Their warnings remain unheeded.

“I asked the Salt Lake County Health Department to post the warnings issued in 2006 and 2010 by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Dental Association advising against mixing formula with fluoridated water. They declined,” Ken says.

“Please pass the fluoride warning for infants to everyone. Please take note there is a study showing serum fluoride can potentially damage a child’s IQ,” Ken says.

Sneaking a rider to keep the toxic fumigant sulfuryl fluoride on our food...

More Communities Succeed in Eliminating Water Fluoridation, While Chemical Industry Raises the Stakes

September 08, 2013

Story at-a-glance

  • Fluoride is a toxic substance that accumulates in your tissues over time, wreaks havoc with enzymes, and produces a number of serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction
  • A rider in the 2014 House Appropriations Bill would cut back a lot of EPA’s work and prevent the agency from phasing out sulfuryl fluoride, a toxic fumigant used on food. Take action now to stop this rider!
  • Despite being severely outspent by fluoride proponents, citizens in Wichita, Kansas and Portland, Oregon voted NO on water fluoridation; Connecticut, South Carolina, and Minnesota are looking at lifting mandatory fluoridation rulings
  • There are now 15 regional councils in Queensland, Australia that are either stopping fluoridation or refusing to start. Hamilton, NZ also recently voted to stop water fluoridation

Woodland to stop fluoridating water

LONGVIEW, Wash. -- The city council of Woodland, Wash., has decided to stop fluoridating the city's water.

The council voted 6-1 Monday night to remove the additive from the water supply.

Even if fluoridation prevents tooth decay, councilman John Burke said the city shouldn't make a medical decision for citizens without their consent.

"I did a lot of research on it and I feel it's a chemical we're putting in people's bodies without their permission," Burke told KGW.
But Al Swindell, the lone 'no' voter on the council, said fluoride isn't harmful. He said the anti-fluoride sentiment was just a trend that carried over from Portland.

"Then it seemed to migrate across the river and then it seemed everyone was really interested that we had fluoride in our water," he said. "But we've had it in the water for 30 or 40 years."

The county halted fluoridation on Tuesday but it will take a few days before all the treated water flows through the system.


Fluoridation victories continue as Washington town banishes toxic chemical from water supply

Monday, September 09, 2013
"I'm against my government medicating me without my consent," said Terry Day, a local resident, to the council at a recent meeting. Day was one of 20 other local residents who showed up to oppose fluoride -- not a single individual in favor of artificial fluoridation showed up to the meeting to defend the practice.

According to reports, all of Woodland's councilmen had conducted their own research prior to the meeting, and, with the exception of just one, came to the conclusion that fluoridating the water needed to stop. Councilman Ben Fredricks, for instance, expressed that cities have no business adding
fluoride chemicals, which are technically a drug, to water supplies without consent.

Adding fluoride "allows decision makers without medical qualifications to do to the whole community what a doctor is not allowed to do to his or her patients," Fredricks is quoted as saying.

Councilwoman Marilee McCall agrees, having also expressed concerns about fluoride, and particularly its safety when ingested continually over the course of one's lifetime. She and Fredricks, along with four other council members, voted to give back to the people of Woodland their health freedom and allow individuals to choose whether or not to ingest or use fluoride.

"Everyone has the opportunity to use [fluoride] topically as a toothpaste if they wish," added Fredricks in his dissent against
fluoridation. "Every doctor I go to knows they can't force a patient to take a medicine without their informed consent..."

"Ending the fluoridation program in Woodland will also result in taxpayer savings of up to $5,000 per year, which is what the city used to spend to truck in the industrial waste and dump it into the water. Contrary to popular myth, the fluoride chemicals added to public water supplies are not natural but rather are derived from industrial processing byproducts, which typically also contain lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, radionuclides and other poisonous compounds..."
