The increasing delay of death for Americans over the last century or so has been extensive and consequential, probably in many profound ways that we do not fully appreciate. In the late 19th century, a newborn white boy would be expected to live, on average, to about 40; now, such a newborn can be expected to live into his late 70s. A ten-year-old then could expect to reach his late 50s and a ten-year-old can now expect to reach his mid-70s. Girls live longer and nonwhites shorter lives, but the trends have been dramatically upward for them, as well. Moreover, Americans’ health, while they lived, also improved markedly. Continue reading

Getting cavities is no fun, but just how far are you willing to go to prevent them? Most people who have had a cavity filled consider regular brushing and flossing to be a small price to pay to avoid repeating the unpleasant experience in the dentist’s chair. However, few would say that they’d be willing to sacrifice their children’s intelligence to lower their risk of cavities. Continue reading
Community where cancer rates are FOUR TIMES the national average and residents point to chemical dumps as the cause as they attend ‘one funeral after another’
When Susie Worley-Jenkins survived cervical cancer after being diagnosed at 22 years old, she hoped that she was done with the disease. It was 1979, and she had no idea what was coming.
Thirty-five years later, she was diagnosed with cancer in her left breast. Then her right breast. Then she got cancerous moles on her hand and nose. Continue reading
Erin Brockovich, the famous environmental activist and fighter for clean water, explains why people are seeing their drinking water turn different colors. It’s not just Flint, Michigan, that’s suffering: there are more than 200 sites with lead levels higher than Flint
Following is a transcript of the video.
I’ll get pictures from all over the US, and they’re, like, why is my water coming out brown or yellow or orange?
The Fluoride Action Network (FAN), along with a coalition of environmental and public health groups has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in response to their denial of our petition under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) seeking a ban on water fluoridation.
We believe this lawsuit is an unprecedented opportunity to end the practice once and for all in the U.S., and potentially throughout the world, based on the well-documented neurotoxicity of fluoride. You may read the Official complaint here. According to FAN’s attorney and adviser, Michael Connett:
“This case will present the first time a court will consider the neurotoxicity of fluoride and the question of whether fluoridation presents an unreasonable risk under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Continue reading
Publisher’s NOTE: Over the past eight-plus months, we have continued to read many stories about the problems with water all over this nation. Some of what is posted below, includes a degree of repetition, however it is worth expanding on this horrible situation – as it DOES affect the health of each and everyone of us. There is an old saying that, “you are what you eat.” Now it becomes important to NOT become what you drink. ~ J.B.
Every state in the nation has breached the Safe Drinking Water Act combining in 80,000 safety violations affecting 77 million people’s drinking water.
A report by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found that 15 percent of those offenses were health-based contamination, including lead, copper, arsenic or cancer-causing poisons.
These pollutants can lead to liver and kidney damage, cancer and birth defects. Lead exposure is especially detrimental to children with possible learning disabilities and damage to the central nervous system. Continue reading
Hello all, its been a while since my last post. I guess I just needed some time to recharge my intellectual batteries enough to get passionate about an issue. What has instigated this passion is my research on the topic of water fluoridation and the sinister & coercive issues surrounding it. Having spent a lot of time investigating the causes of cancer, I have to spend some time discussing Fluoride.
Water Fluoridation follows the same path as many other truthbreakdowns in our society such as Vaccinations, Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy, and most Big Pharma drugs. Here are some commonalities: Continue reading
More than 28,000 people in New York and more than 70,000 people in Philadelphia ‘exposed to cancerous toxins in drinking water’
Blood tests have been ordered for the entire population of a New York town amid fears toxins have infected the drinking water supply.
More than 28,000 people in Newburgh are feared exposed to the chemical perfluorooctane sulfonate (or, PFOS), which has been linked to cancer.
It comes just days after lawsuits were filed in two Pennsylvania counties where 70,000 people were exposed to the same substance.
The incidences ominous echo the lead-infection scandal in Flint, Michigan’s water supply, which is still ongoing after two years. Continue reading
Hormone-disrupting chemicals in everyday things like water bottles DO cause cancer, diabetes, ADHD and autism – and cost US $340 BILLION a year
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) interfere with the body’s hormonal system, affecting development and leaving the body open to a staggering range of diseases.
But they are found in thousands of everyday products, ranging from plastic and metal food containers, to detergents, flame retardants, toys and cosmetics. Continue reading
Experts fear massive doses of prescription drugs return unaltered through our sewage
Every time you enjoy a cool, clear glass of tap water, you could be drinking a cocktail of other people’s second-hand medications.
That is thanks to the fact that today’s pharmaceuticals have been designed to be stable and long-lasting.
While that makes their doses reliably consistent, it also means that a substantial amount of the prescribed drugs that people take goes through their bodies and out into waste water. Ultimately a proportion of these drugs pours unaltered through the sewage filtering system and re-enters our domestic supply. Continue reading
Hazel Juco said the water concerned her and she ‘just took a picture of it’ and then talked about it with other students in her newspaper class, WXYZ reported.
Juco, who is a senior at John Glenn High School, posted the photo on Facebook and Twitter.
She told the station that she hoped ‘someone will see it and want to help us’ because she said, it’s obvious that her school ‘doesn’t have money’.
Juco was then given Out of School Suspension (OSS) as she said school officials told her that she inappropriately used ‘electronics in the restroom’. Continue reading
Dangerous levels of the carcinogenic chemical chromium-6 can be found in the tap water drunk by 218 million Americans, a new report has revealed.
The toxic chemical was brought into the spotlight by Erin Brockovich when she fought a power company accused of leaking the chemical into tap water supplies in California.
On Monday, figures released by the Environmental Working Group showed 50 states are exposed to unsafe levels of chromium-6 or hexavalent chromium. Continue reading
When basic human needs are ignored, illness and disease often ensue. This is the case with hydration; not consuming enough water can have dire and sometimes hidden consequences on our bodies.
Increasing your daily water intake can work wonders for your health. Continue reading
“It’s just the Flint of the Iceberg“ ~ J.B.
More than six million people in the US drink and use water that is contaminated with deadly toxins, a new study reveals.
Life-threatening concentrations of a carcinogenic man-made chemical – normally used to fight fire, insulate pipes, and stain-proof furniture – have been found in public water tanks across America.
The most at-risk states are (in order): California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Georgia, Minnesota, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Illinois. Continue reading
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently proposed rule changes that would permit drinking water to become hundreds of thousands of times more radioactive than currently allowed. The rule would permit water so radioactive that it would expose those drinking it to the equivalent of 250 chest X-rays per year.
Environmental groups immediately condemned the proposal. Continue reading
Beginning in the 1960’s, America’s municipal water supplies began to be supplemented with fluoride, with the supposed aim of increasing the country’s dental health. Shortly after, further fluoride supplementation in the form of ingestible lozenges, tablets and drops became available through dentists and over the counter. Although water fluoridation and the sale of over-the-counter fluoride “supplements” continues today, the growing movement to educate about the dangers of this toxic element that is linked to higher breast cancer risk among others things is gaining speed. Continue reading
Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood.
Most doctors and laboratories don’t even include magnesium status in routine blood tests. Thus, most doctors don’t know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though studies show that the majority of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Consider Dr. Norman Shealy’s statements, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency” and that, “magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.”
The truth he states exposes a gapping hole in modern medicine that explains a good deal about iatrogenic death and disease. Continue reading
“Mandrake!? Water – that’s what I’m getting at – water. Water is the source of all life. 7/10ths of this Earth’s surface is water. Why, do you realize that 70% of you is water? And as human beings – you and I need fresh – pure water to replenish our precious bodily fluids. Are you beginning to understand?”
“Mandrake, have you ever wondered why I only drink distilled water or rain water – and only pure grain alcohol? Have you ever heard of a thing called fluoridation? Fluoridation of water? Do you know what it is? Do you realize that fluoridation is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous Communist plot we’ve ever had to face?” – Sterling Hayden as Gen. Jack D. Ripper; Dr. Strangelove; Columbia Pictures 1964 Continue reading
… and for the first time since 1962, is lowering their recommended level of fluoride in drinking water.
The CDC reports that around 40% percent of Americans have dental fluorosis, a condition referring to changes in the appearance of tooth enamel — from chalky-looking lines and splotches to dark staining and pitting — caused by long-term ingestion of fluoride during the time teeth are forming. Continue reading
But the message came across…
A new documentary exposing the ugly truth behind the phosphate fertilizer industry will soon be available on DVD. The film, titled Fluoride: Poison on Tap, features testimony from dozens of professionals who are extremely knowledgeable about the harmful effects of fluoride, including Natural News Editor Mike Adams, health and wellness expert Dr. Edward Group and preventive dentist David Kennedy.
The film dives into the filthy processes of the phosphate fertilizer industry, which provides municipalities across the U.S. with fluoride, or hydrofluorosilicic acid rather, a hazardous waste byproduct of the commercial fertilizer industry. Continue reading
If you’re connected to natural health circles, you’ve probably been privy to a lot of the buzz about fluoride (it’s a subject that just doesn’t seem to permanently go away). Years ago it began as concern among health-conscious people about the substance’s presence in toothpaste. Apparently, toothpaste manufacturers were paying attention; In the past it was nearly impossible to find toothpastes free of sodium fluoride, but luckily that trend has reversed. Continue reading
In 2014, Israel ended the process of fluoridating water. Israel joined most of the other wealthy Western countries in not adding fluoride to the public water supply. In fact, over 97% of the population of Europe lives in a non-fluoridated area.
Why is Israel stopping the process of fluoridation of the water supply? The answer is simple: The Israeli health ministry realizes that there is no data that adding fluoride to the water supply has any health benefit and they understand that water fluoridation is harmful. Continue reading
Around 1945 local water treatment facilities began to add sodium fluoride to our water supply.
The first thing you should know is that the fluoride they put in our drinking water is not a pharmaceutical grade additive.
It is an industrial waste byproduct.
As aluminum production increased in the first half of the twentieth century, it became necessary to find somewhere to put the fluoride. Manufacturers could no longer get away with dumping it into rivers or landfills, because it was poisoning crops and making livestock sick. Francis Frary, chief scientist for ALCOA, had an idea. He commissioned Gerald Cox at the Mellon Institute, to conduct research regarding the benefits of adding fluoride to the water supply. The Mellon Institute was frequently hired by big business to produce research that supported their industries, and for several decades they produced research showing that asbestos was safe and did not cause cancer. Hmmm. Continue reading
Editor’s NOTE: Today, September 4, 2013, in preparation for Life, Liberty and Your Good Health, I had made decisions to go in an entirely different direction for the program. During the opening music for the program, due to the current situation in Syria, I made an instant switch in the direction of my commentary; first to share the following from Mike Adams at Natural News, and subsequently to give a bit of a history lesson; one which I have shared many times over the past nearly 14 years. After reading this commentary, we invite you to read Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb. These are the ties that bind.
Editor’s NOTEs: Having been introduced to Dr. William D. Kelley in early 1998, amongst the first things he discussed with me, was the toxic nature of fluoride, and how he had become aware of its dangers. Following is among the most devastating health related issues of the past 60 years – yet as recently witnessed in many communities around the nation, our elected “mis-representatives” continue to make decisions “for” us without benefit of the TRUTH!
The following article exposes the biggest on-going medical experiment ever carried out by the United States Government on an unsuspecting population.
Although commissioned by the Christian Science Monitor in early Spring of 1997, they chose not to publish the findings. I became aware of its existence sometime in late 1999 or early 2000, and have provided it a to variety of readers on numerous web-sites, which I have been associated with. (Ed.) Continue reading
Several international studies to date have demonstrated that fluoride added to water is causing numerous health complications, including reduced IQ ratings among children. The notion that drinking fluoridated water contributes to healthier teeth has not been proven, and is slowing disintegrating into thin air. As a matter of fact, there is more evidence that fluoride is harmful rather than helpful
There has been controversy over the activity of adding fluoride to municipal water supplies and elsewhere, but not enough. The seriousness of this issue is more than what most realize, which is why most developed nations refuse to fluoridate their water. Actually, Israel is the latest nation to completely halt water fluoridation, mandatory and voluntary.
Fluoridation ranks with GMO’s, chemically tainted toxic foods, and vaccinations as crimes against humanity. You’ll soon see why implementing some sort of fluoride detox protocol is so important. Continue reading
(NaturalNews) Intense industry pressure to continue mass medicating Americans with fluoride chemicals via public water supplies has apparently influenced Harvard University researchers to backtrack on a recent study they conducted that verified fluoride chemicals lower IQ levels in children. We are now being told the absurd lie that fluoride is only detrimental to people in other countries, and that Americans need not worry about ingesting and bathing in the toxic brew here in the states. Continue reading
When you brush your teeth in the morning, do you automatically reach for your handy tube of toothpaste? Have you ever stopped to consider what’s in it? Unfortunately, that refreshing mint toothpaste that makes your teeth feel so clean may mask hidden poisons that can be toxic in high doses and could increase your risk of chronic disease. The health effects of toothpaste products may be even more pronounced in children since they’re more susceptible to lower doses of toxins due to their lower body weight. They also have a tendency to swallow toothpaste because of its pleasing taste. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
