New Harvard Study Corroborates Link Between Fluoride and Lower IQ in Children

“In a telling review of a variety of studies that have demonstrated just how significantly fluoride can damage the brain and subsequently your IQ, Harvard University scientists stated “our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.”

“The most outstanding component to the study is where it was published. Authors published their conclusion online in the July 20th edition of the prominent journal Environmental Health Perspectives, a federal government medical journal stemming from the United States National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The very same government that has continually asserted that water fluoridation is both perfectly safe and ‘effective’ at aiding the health of citizens who consume it on a daily basis.

“In the past, the US government has actually been forced to call for lower fluoridation levels as previous research had also drawn a link between fluoride exposure and a host of neurotoxic effects. In the latest research by Harvard, it is made even more explicitly clear just how toxic fluoride can be to the body. In a written statement, researchers state:

“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas.”

“This should come as no surprise to those who have followed fluoride research over the past several years. As far back as 1977, for instance, epidemiological studies performed by the head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute Dr. Dean Burk revealed that fluoride exposure led to increased tumor growth – even at levels as low as 1 ppm (the standard for United States drinking water). Beyond revealing an accelerated tumor growth rate of 25% in his research, fluoride was found to produce melanotic tumors, transform normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals.

“In 1977, Dr. Burk estimated that fluoridation has actually caused about 10,000 deaths according to his research.

“It will come as no surprise, then, that even the EPA — an agency charged with protecting the people — has classified fluoride as a substance with ”with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.” Perhaps the EPA is also run by blubbering conspiracy theorists. In another entry by study authors, it is explained how fluoride actually attacks the brain in unborn children and essentially launches a direct assault on their neurological development:

”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.”

But will the United States government answer to the study? As mentioned, many studies have exposed the same correlation of IQ-crushing fluoride intake. Paul Connett, Ph.D. and director of the Fluoride Action Network was one of the many activists to speak out regarding the last study to highlight the association. At the time, there were 23 former studies on the matter, and Connett felt that this 24th study was by far the strongest. And what was done? Unfortunately, it was brushed under the rug by mainstream health organizations who continue to assert that fluoride is perfectly safe. Some even recommend supplementing with fluoride pills.  In regards to the last breaking study, Connett stated:

“In this study we found a significant dose-response relation between fluoride level in serum and children’s IQ…This is the 24th study that has found this association, but this study is stronger than the rest.”

Batman shooter shows striking similarities with Sirhan Sirhan

“The parallels between alleged Colorado shooter James Holmes and Sirhan Sirhan are staggering. Both appear to have been drugged, both cannot remember the shootings they were accused of carrying out, and in both cases other shooters were reported by eyewitnesses.

“Over 40 years after being convicted of the murder of Robert F. Kennedy, the weight of evidence clearly indicates that SIrhan Sirhan was a drugged-up patsy, a fall guy for the real murderer who has never been identified.

“The fact that details surrounding the Aurora massacre and shooting suspect James Holmes mirror almost exactly those of Sirhan Sirhan, within just a week of the tragedy taking place, strongly suggest that Holmes is also a patsy or at the very least that there was a wider plot behind the tragedy that led to the deaths of 12 people.

As the London Independent reported in 2005, evidence strongly indicates that Sirhan was a Manchurian candidate, a victim of mind control who was set up to be the fall guy for the murder. Sirhan was described by eyewitnesses as being in a trance-like state as he pulled the trigger. …”

Greenland’s ice disappears: What does it mean?

It may have been a surprise to some people at NASA but there’s no way it would have been a surprise to anyone with temperature sensors embedded in the ice.   The way it works is that as thermal energy is absorbed by ice, the temperature rises in proportion to the calories absorbed.  That’s what specific heat is all about.  But when it reaches the melting point (0 degrees C) all the energy goes into melting, not temperature increase.  Ice near 0 degrees has a specific heat of about 0.5 cal/gm, but it takes about 80 cal/gm to change ice to water, so there would have been a huge plateau in the temperature curve where the temperature would have stayed constant at 0.  In other words, it’s very unlikely that this would have taken anyone by surprise who was paying attention.   In real life the ice sheet has been eroding for some time, but even if ice conducted heat perfectly so the entire sheet was at the same temperature at all times, the temperature plateau would have been there.  Even satellites can take thermal readings.  So the question is, why pretend that it was a surprise?   And why wasn’t this predictable event in the news well before it happened?  One would think that ocean going vessels would want to know about it due to possible tidal effects, icebergs etc.  It must have taken some effort to keep this out of the news before it happened.

The journalist also states that it melted more than has been seen in 33 years of satellite imagery.   Sounds like a long time to a young person I guess.  But then we see this:

“Melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time” — Lora Koenig Nasa Goddard Space Flight Center http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-18978483

So what can we draw from all this?   The powers that be really really want to convince us that we’re on the edge of a precipice, and this entirely predictable “surprise” serves that purpose well.   The question is whether we really are.  Let me stress that I don’t know.  What I do know is that the proposed remedies for the AGW hypothesis amount to deindustrialization and genocide on a vast scale, and depopulation and a global “carbon tax” are very much at the heart of the globalization project.

If the powers that be want to be taken seriously about a serious subject, they might try not treating us like idiots.   But it’s a bit late for that in any case, 9/11 blew whatever credibility they might have had, so we’re on our own.  I must say the current drought and heat wave in missouri doesn’t fill me with confidence, but it also has precedence in the dust bowl years of the 1930’s.

Do your own research.  There’s a heck of a lot of disagreement among climatologists if you scratch below the wall-to-wall propaganda.

Mexican official: CIA ‘manages’ drug trade

Juarez, Mexico – The US Central Intelligence Agency and other international security forces “don’t fight drug traffickers”, a spokesman for the Chihuahua state government in northern Mexico has told Al Jazeera, instead “they try to manage the drug trade”.

Allegations about official complicity in the drug business are nothing new when they come from activists, professors, campaigners or even former officials. However, an official spokesman for the authorities in one of Mexico’s most violent states – one which directly borders Texas – going on the record with such accusations is unique.

“It’s like pest control companies, they only control,” Guillermo Terrazas Villanueva, the Chihuahua spokesman, told Al Jazeera last month at his office in Juarez. “If you finish off the pests, you are out of a job. If they finish the drug business, they finish their jobs.”

A spokesman for the CIA in Washington wouldn’t comment on the accusations directly, instead he referred Al Jazeera to an official website.

Villanueva is not a high ranking official and his views do not represent Mexico’s foreign policy establishment. Other more senior officials in Chihuahua State, including the mayor of Juarez, dismissed the claims as “baloney”. …

And yet they can’t seem to keep the $billions of profits from being laundered through wall street banks despite having realtime surveillance of interbank wire transfers etc.
