America’s Diminishing IQ

Wherever one goes on social media or any other public forum, one of the main thrusts of conversation is the apparent mental deterioration of the American public. Today’s Americans are not only more ignorant than previous generations, but as illustrated by our violent politics and social chaos, we appear to have lost the ability to function as civilized people. Much is explained by our deplorable educational system, but the loss of the ability of many people of all ages to rationally think and act cannot be explained away simply by bad schools or toxic entertainment. Even the most credulous are beginning to believe that there is some underlying reason for the collapse of the American intellect, something that is more basic than bad teachers, schools and curricula—and they’re right.

Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ

At least when it comes to topical application, you have a choice. You can easily buy fluoride-free toothpaste and mouthwash. But you’re stuck with whatever your community puts in the water, and it’s very difficult to filter out of your water once it’s added.

A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas. Continue reading

Fluoride Literally Turns the Pineal Gland to Stone, Research Suggests

The pineal gland has been known as the ‘seat of soul’ for hundreds of years. Could fluoride, a ubiquitous vector of toxicity in the modern world, actually be calcifying this gland and literally turning it to stone?

The Discovery
Research published in 2001 showed that fluoride (F) deposits in the pineal gland with age and is associated with enhanced gland calcification. Eleven aged cadavars were dissected and their pineal glands assayed: Continue reading

In Latest ‘Giveaway to Polluters‘, Trump EPA Suspends Clean Water Rule

Rescinding the regulation will put the drinking water of one in three Americans in danger of pollution

The Clean Water Rule, introduced in 2015, aimed to reduce pollution from substances like chemical fertilizers used by farmers and ranchers, in 60 percent of U.S. waterways. (Photo: EcologyWA)

In a decision that critics warned will put the drinking water of one in three Americans at risk, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced plans on Wednesday to suspend the Obama-era Clean Water Rule, meant to limit the flow of chemicals into the nation’s waterways. Continue reading

Latest Study on Water Fluoridation Again Links It to Lowered Children’s IQ’s

What would you think if I told you that there is poison in the tap water? If you’re like some, you might think that there is no way the government could allow that to happen. However, if you live in the United States it’s likely that you the water from your tap contains a type of neurotoxin called sodium fluoride. For decades, fluoride has been added to public water supplies for what some claim protects the health of our teeth, but is that really what it is doing? Continue reading

A History of Health and Health Inequalities

Dalecarlia Water Treatment Plant (D.C.)

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

Science confirms fluoride exposure damages brains and lowers IQs in newborns

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

Toxic Town, West Virginia 25879

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’

Susie Worley-Jenkins, 62, was first diagnosed with cervical cancer 40 years ago – but has since been diagnosed with breast cancer and skin cancer

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: Here’s why water across the US is turning brown, yellow, and other colors

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?

Unprecedented Lawsuit Could End Water Fluoridation in US Based on Neurotoxicity Studies

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

Nearly 30 MILLION Americans drinking dangerous contaminated tap water linked to cancer, birth defects and lead poisoning

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
