BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth Answers Tough Questions: Focus on 5G

By Robert G. O’Leary | Nexus News

In this new series of articles, I seek to analyze a particular subject, technology, medicine, or nutrient from a sound analysis perspective. In order to do so, I will be using techniques and knowledge I have learned from the amazing Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Sound Health, located in Albany, OH. There are many practitioners, of this integrative type of medicine, in the United States and in numerous other areas of the world. For more information, you can check out the website at www.soundhealthoptions.com.

For this first article, I will be taking a look at the important new technology, called 5G, a technology which is being installed as we speak around the world. One cannot typically hear about 5G without hearing about some of the grave concerns about the safety and lack of testing of this technology.

I felt impelled to write this article after watching an eye-opening YouTube video, about 5G. It was a very simple video production, one without the editing and gloss typical of YouTube videos today. Yet I was transfixed by the charisma and conviction of the speaker in the video. He spoke so earnestly and intelligently from the alcove of his home, about this subject. His video was called “Urgent! Forbidden Information, a must watch! 5G is a kill grid that will lead to forced vaccinations.” (Imbriano, 2018)

The man in the video is named Joe Imbriano. He is a scientist and activist. He has taken a particular interest in the effects, of WiFi, generally, and 5G technology, specifically. His pseudonym on YouTube is “The Fullerton Informer,” and he has numerous videos on YouTube under that name.

In this video, Imbriano provided information about the frequency at which 5G will reportedly be emitted: 60 GHz.  He informed the viewer that this frequency is at the beginning of a range of frequencies which happen to disrupt the ability of the element iron to bond with oxygen.[1] His video can be watched below.

This postulation intrigued me as a bioacoustic biology and soundhealth practitioner, and I thought I would explore this information further.[2] That exploration inspired the writing of this article. As a practitioner, I look at how resonant frequencies in our environment can affect us. As such, this article will provide important information about how, and why, 5G may influence our body’s form and function.

As I analyzed this subject bioacoustically, I first found that the Frequency Equivalent (FE) of 60 GHz, which is equal to 60,000,000,000 Hz, is further equivalent (albeit at a far lower frequency) to a common mineral which is indispensable to our survival on this planet. I will be using this particular frequency equivalent to further analyze 5G’s effects.

Before we go further, I will define the term, “Frequency Equivalent.” By way of background, everything in our bodies, and what we put into them (i.e., foods, vitamins, minerals, medicines, poisons, or toxins, et al) has a numeric frequency, which the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Sound Health calls a Frequency Equivalent (TM), or FE, for short). The body is incredibly system-redundant, as for example shown by how a pressure point can address symptoms in different body parts & systems. Likewise, a single FE can correspond to a muscle & biochemical simultaneously. For example, an inability to open a pickle jar tends to indicate a weak lower thumb muscle & also correlates to the mineral zinc. Presenting that particular FE to the body, through headphones or a speaker, can improve the performance of both.

What is BioAcoustic Biology?

Here is a description of “bioacoustic biology” from the website of the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Sound Health, which is found at www.soundhealthoptions.com:

As a bridge between ancient ideas of sound healing and the futuristic, Star Trek, protocols that the institute provides, it is now possible to reverse diseases and traumas previously thought to be incurable, to reveal the secrets of our true nature, to enhance our lives, to predict what may be our fate through the frequencies of our voice?

Knowing your own voice takes on new meaning if you begin to consider the possibility that the sounds of your voice may be a holographic representation of all that you are, all that you can be. Imagine a future in which our individual vocal frequencies represent our identification; where the use of frequency based biomarkers contained within our voice can be used to keep us healthy and emotionally balanced.

From birth to death, we use sounds to express our needs and emotions, but there are additional layers of information hidden within our words. As man evolved, language became levels of intricate harmony nestled within structures of great elegance that carried meaning and allowed understanding of ourselves and others. See  (Edwards, Undated)

What can BioAcoustic Biology tell us about 5G’s Emission Frequency?

My bioacoustic biological analysis reveals that this frequency equates to such things as chlorophyll and glutathione, to name a few. It also equates with the Frequency Equivalent of elemental/mineral Iron.

My understanding is that anytime you add energy to an atom or molecule, the particles move more rapidly, bounce more and more off of neighboring particles, and thereby expand. Adding energy to an element, as we can reasonably say will happen when we interact with electromagnetic fields, such as those produced by 5G, will also cause it to increase its normal spin of electrons around the nucleus.

Remembering Basic Chemistry

As we excite a substance, more and more, it will pass through its different physical states of matter. In other words, when we heat a solid, it stays solid till it reaches a melting point, at which time it converts into a liquid. If heated more, the liquid boils and turns into a gas. A solid has tightly packed atoms and molecules. A liquid has these particles more spread out, and a gas has them spread out further still. This gaseous state is a kind of maximum expansion of the substance, and we can see this microscopically. See (Encyclopedia Briitannica, Inc., 2019)

Going farther still into the microscopic world, we see that the actual atoms are responding to the application of additional energy. They demonstrate this in the form of an increased spin of their electrons, and that faster spin causes the additional agitation of particles we see.  A faster spin has another consequence: it causes the electrons to hop from the lower orbits to the higher orbits of its structure. See (Encyclopedia Briitannica, Inc., 2019). We could use the analogy of a tilt-a-whirl ride at the amusement park. The faster you spin, the more outward force you feel on your body. If you were not strapped in, your body would keep on moving outward from the center. The faster your spin, the more force you feel upon your body. See (Encyclopedia Briitannica, Inc., 2019).

As you may recall from your chemistry class(es), electrons travel in so-called orbits around the nucleus (which is made up of one proton and neutron). There are various orbits in an atom, each of which can hold a different number of electrons. There is a certain quantity of electrons which each orbit can accommodate when the atom is in stasis. In the case of an iron atom, the 1st orbit holds 2 electrons, the 2nd holds 8, the 3rd holds 14, and the 4th one holds 2. See (Encyclopedia Briitannica, Inc., 2019).

What might be the consequence, of additional spin, upon an iron atom? As expected, with more energy, be it from heat or millimeter-sized radio waves, it seems that electrons will likely hop up into the atom’s upper orbital areas.

The Influence of Additional Energy upon the Atoms which Help us to Breathe

This phenomenon is borne out by the following article, and it shows that this effect holds a particular consequence for Iron’s important interaction with the Oxygen molecule. According to the article, “The Iron-Oxygen Bond in Oxyhemoglobin,” scientist Max Perutz was inspired by contemporary scientist, Linus Pauling, to discover that “the iron-oxygen binding in hemoglobin depends on the electronic spin transition of the iron atom.” This article goes on to state that:

Essentially, Perutz found that when the ferrous iron in hemoglobin is in a low spin state, its higher d-orbitals are unoccupied by electrons, which allows oxygen to form a bond with iron. In a high spin state the electrons in ferrous iron are occupying all d-orbitals in the atom, and oxygen remains unbound, because there is no room in the uppermost orbital.

This suggests that the more likely structure for hemoglobin involves a single bond between iron and the oxygen molecule, not the double bond that Pauling had proposed in 1948 and again in 1964.  But Pauling was correct with respect to the presence of ferrous iron in the compound, and he had been able to make this determination before any crystallographic pictures were available to him. See  (Scarc, 2014).

In this low spin state, the upper most orbit is open. This means that all of its electrons are occupying lower orbits. Oxygen utilizes the uppermost orbit in order to find a place with iron and to bond with it. See  (Scarc, 2014)

If the Frequency Equivalent ™ of iron is activated by outside energy, at the level of 60,000,000,000 Hz of millimeter wave energy, it stands to reason that this will result in an activation of electrons such that they will be pushed to the outer orbit, thereby leaving no room for oxygen molecules to be able to bond with iron. This could mean that oxygen and iron molecules will not have the ability to bond.

The Potential Reach and Influence of 5G

This phenomenon could be of great concern to the future health of our world.

Since the vision and the marketing for 5G is for to have its towers within several feet of one another, and to have 5G technology, inside of homes, within phones, games, appliances, et al, it is likely that nowhere may be safe from these waves. Under a constant cascade of this specific frequency of radio waves, how and when will our lungs (not to mention those of non-human beings) be able to bring the life-giving and life-sustaining oxygen, to which we are accustomed, into our bodies?

While the air outside will still contain ample amounts of oxygen in a 5G world, our bodies ironically could still suffocate. To play with an old saying, we may have miles and miles of oxygen around us, but not a drop to breathe. How swiftly such a state of anoxemia may occur is unknown. But consider, for a moment, the diabolical potential of this kind of technology. It could easily be the product of a James Bond-movie level evil mastermind, and yet it is all too real.

It is mind-boggling to think of the potential harmful effects of this technology. It is fundamental and basic knowledge that we need oxygen in order to survive and thrive. It is the basis for our physical, mental, and emotional processes. Oxygen plays a key role in the lives of our animals, too. Plants breathe out oxygen for us to breathe in, we breathe out carbon dioxide which they use in their photosynthesis process. Nature and our creator have given us a beautifully-balanced system. Somehow, by design, deception, or dumb luck, the telecomm industries have somehow hit upon a frequency which will be tremendously counter/-productive and disruptive to that balance. Is this some kind of doomsday device, which could kill off many, and be the means to limit the freedoms, mobility, and vitality of the rest of society?

5G’s Dangerous History

It is pertinent to note that this type of technology has already been used as a weapons system. As shown in the article, “5G networks will use the same frequencies as pain-inflicting crowd control weapons”, this tech was used for purposes of crowd control and crowd dispersal. Apparently this technology can inflict a burning sensation and effect on your skin, as indicated by the quote below:

For years, the U.S., Russian and Chinese defense agencies have been developing weapons that rely on the capability of this electromagnetic technology to induce unpleasant burning sensations on the skin as a form of crowd control. Millimeter waves are utilized by the U.S. Army in crowd dispersal guns called Active Denial Systems. Dr. Paul Ben-Ishai pointed to research that was commissioned by the U.S. Army to find out why people ran away when the beam touched them. “If you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.” The U.S. Department of Defense explains how: “The sensation dissipates when the target moves out of the beam. The sensation is intense enough to cause a nearly instantaneous reflex action of the target to flee the beam.” See (Unattributed, “5G networks will use the same frequencies as pain-inflicting crowd control weapons”, 2017)

Another article adds more information to this discussion. It mentions that this technology was developed at least as far back as the 1980’s, and that the burning sensation comes from an actual heating of a victim’s skin to a level of at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit. It is said to be “non-lethal.” See (Unattributed, “Health Effects of 5G Networks,”, 2017)

5G in Context

One may reasonably wonder if the claims of non-lethality are valid, or if the difference between life and death may be just a matter of degree (pardon the pun). How hard would it be for the companies, beaming out this energy, to turn up the power and burn us to death, or to burn down our homes? Is it safe to bring such a potential danger into our homes?

You may recall that smart meters were touted as safe and efficient not that long ago. They are similar to 5G in that they communicate with an outside company. In some cases, smart meters have ignited or exploded inside of homes. The danger of smart meters, due to a defect in the design or manufacture of one or more units, is therefore potentially fatal. 5G technology will reportedly be in many of our appliances, not just a single outside unit. You can imagine that, if each of these units even has a fraction of the potential danger of a single smart meter unit, the results could be disastrous and deadly.

To those who might protest and ask, “Why would our government do such things?” consider this:

Firstly, we have seen how surveillance has been turned on citizens, even though much, if not all, of its justification for production and proliferation has been based upon the threat of a foreign enemy. Whistleblowers, like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, have provided us a valuable service by showing us how little our government, and the Fortune 500 companies which seek to control it, cares about our privacy and our health.

Secondly, it is now common to see that military-grade hardware and armaments have been distributed widely to local and state police forces.  As these forces begin to use these items, they begin to look more like soldiers or Stormtroopers than typical police officers. It is not far-fetched to see how 5G, which is intended to be installed in every home, could be used as part of the militarization of the entire world; and the government could conceivably have at least as much information on its citizens as it has on its own enemies.

Thirdly, there are concerns over the so-called Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, and a document which NASA briefly had on its website, about what the world would look like in 2025. Much of this subject is discussed in the article, “NASA – The End of Mankind ‘Leaked Document.’” See (Wales, Undated)

The above issues concern facts and events which likely seem fantastical to most of us. Making them harder to grasp is the fact that they have constantly been branded conspiracy theories for years. Yet the years 2017 and 2018 have borne witness to the confirmation of many conspiracy theories as scientific fact and the concomitant vindication of many so-called “conspiracy theorists.”  See (Rudkowski, 2017) and (Icke, 2017). For even earlier confirmations and vindications (from 2013 and 2014), check out: “25 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True,” and “25 Conspiracy Theories That Actually Ended Up Being True”. See (List 25, 2013) and (List 25, 2015).

With so many seemingly implausible theories and events becoming documented and publicized, the tool of plausible deniability, wielded so deftly by the government and its handmaiden, the mainstream media, seems more and more ineffective. At the same time the burden of proof seems to have shifted onto the establishment. It therefore seems more than reasonable that the remaining so-called “conspiracy theorists” be given the benefit of the doubt when they have the courage to address and warn the public about facts or concerns that they may have.

Coming back to our subject, in the context of these times it does not appear unreasonable to state that 5G may be part of a plan to enslave, control, and/or kill off much of the human race. This brings us to our next pertinent question…

Why Such a Rush to Put this Technology in Place – Haven’t We Learned Anything from the Past?

It seems, to this writer, very worrisome that the companies are pushing for local towns and cities to have no real say over the decision of where and whether (or not) to place this tech. It is being rushed into place at an alarming rate. The purported watchdog agency, the FCC, does not seem concerned about the technology in the least. In fact, they seem almost giddy at the prospect of its full implementation.

None of this tech will be really be tested before it is put online, and the rules and regulations controlling WiFi are woefully outdated, and seem purposely drafted to do little to nothing to protect citizens from the harm that 3G, 4G, and 5G technology represent. Some of this is discussed in a video, entitled “Michigan House Energy Policy Committee 5G Hearing May 29, 2018 – Part 1,” and can be found at. The area of particular interest, in regard to health issues, begins at about the 1:04 mark. (Technology, 2018)

As with conspiracy theories, it has become more and more difficult to see how we can believe the government, the media, or industry in regard to health matters anymore. We know that GMOs can cause cancer; we know that fluoride does not really help to protect your teeth and has harmful mental effects; there is more and more credible evidence that we and our property are being attacked from the sky (via chemtrails/geoengineering and lasers); and we now know that there have been no efforts to improve the safety of vaccines over the last 32 years despite the legislative mandate to do so;

Despite the dangers, the corporation formerly called Monsanto, now Bayer, is still selling its poison. Fluoride is still peddled by most dentists, and still flowing out of many area water supplies. We are still seeing streaks in the sky every day, and California is still being wracked by fires many of which seem to be caused by aerosol spraying, HAARP beams, and lasers from above. Lastly, despite the dangers, vaccine companies still act with impunity and some areas of the world have, or contemplate having mandatory vaccines. Considering that Adolf Hitler put fluoride into the food supply of the prisoners in his concentration camps in order to make them more docile, the push toward mandatory vaccines seems to smack of fascism.

The Small Amount of 5G Testing has been Neither Public Nor Positive

In his February 10, 2018 video, mentioned above, Joe Imbriano mentioned that 5G was already used in 2 U.S. schools. In those experiments, the following symptoms allegedly manifested: paralysis, arrhythmia, neurological problems, tingling in the extremities, fainting, malaise, and fatigue. (Imbriano, 2018)

Evidence is Mounting of a Link Between Fluoride and Cancer

By Ethan A. Huff | Natural News

toothpaste fluoride

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) recently released a document called Evidence on the Carcinogenicity of Fluoride and Its Salts that highlights the many health hazards caused by the consumption of fluoride. And the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) recently submitted a compilation of its own to OEHHA, which is soon to make a final decision concerning fluoride’s toxicity, providing additional evidence that fluoride causes cancer.

FAN has been working for many years to raise awareness about the toxicity of fluoride, with the eventual goal of getting it removed from public water supplies. And its most recent efforts involving OEHHA could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, so to speak, as it has the potential to unleash the truth about fluoride on a massive scale, and spark a revolt against its use.

According to a recent FAN press release, OEHHA’s report was birthed out of an inquiry into the science of fluoride’s toxicity. It is also a prelude to the group’s scientific advisory board Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC) meeting to be held on October 12 – 13, 2011, which will make a decision on the status of fluoride as a carcinogen.

The OEHHA report already states that “multiple lines of evidence (show) that fluoride is incorporated into bones where it can stimulate cell division of osteoblasts [bone-forming cells],” an admission that already recognizes fluoride as a cause of bone cancer. The report goes on to state that fluoride induces “genetic changes other cellular changes leading to malignant transformation, and cellular immune response thereby increasing the risk of development of osteosarcomas.”

To add to this, FAN presented OEHHA with additional studies from the National Research Council (NRC), the National Toxicology Program (NTP), and several esteemed universities that all illustrate a link between fluoride consumption and various cancers, including liver and oral cancers, and thyroid follicular cell tumors.

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

spice-turmeric-brain-health-compressed

By Sayer Ji, Founder | Green Med Info

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising!

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

Now, a new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine titled, “Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride: An in vivo evidence,” adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a natural spice-derived protective agent against the various health effects associated with this compound is available.

The study was authored by researchers from the Department of Zoology, University College of Science, M.L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India, who have spent the past decade investigating the mechanisms through which fluoride induces severe neurodegenerative changes in the mammalian brain, particularly in cells of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex.[i] [ii]

The study opens by describing the historical backdrop for concern about fluoride’s significant and wide ranging toxicity:

“Fluoride (F) is probably the first inorganic ion which drew attention of the scientific world for its toxic effects and now the F toxicity through drinking water is well-recognized as a global problem. Health effect reports on F exposure also include various cancers, adverse reproductive activities, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.[1,2]”

The study focused on fluoride induced neurotoxicity, identifying excitoxicity (stimulation of the neuron to the point of death) and oxidative stress as the two main drivers of neurodegeneration.  It has been observed that subjects with the condition known as fluorosis, a mottling of tooth enamel caused by excessive exposure to fluoride during tooth development, also have neurodegenerative changes associated with a form of oxidative stress known as lipid peroxidation (rancidity). Excess lipid peroxidation in the brain can lead to a decrease in total brain phospholipid content. Owing to these well-known mechanisms of fluoride associated neurotoxicity and neurodegeneration, the researchers identified the primary polyphenol in the spice turmeric — known as curcumin – as an ideal agent worth testing as a neuroprotective substance.  Previous research on curcumin indicates that it is capable of activing as an antioxidant in 3 distinct ways by protecting against: 1) singlet oxygen 2) hyrodxyl radicals and 3) superoxide radical damage. Also, curcumin appears to raise endogenous glutathione production in the brain, a major antioxidant defense system.

In order to assess the neurotoxic effects of fluoride and prove curcumin’s protective role against it, researchers randomly divided up mice into four groups, for 30 days:

  1. Control (no fluoride)
  2. Fluoride (120 ppm): fluoride was given in distilled water drinking water without restriction.
  3. Fluoride (120 ppm/30 mg/kg body weight) + Curcumin: Oral dose of curcumin dissolved in olive oil along with fluoride in drinking water
  4. Curcumin: (30 mg/kg body weight)

In order to ascertain the effect of treatment, the researchers measured the malondialdehyde (MDA) content in the brains of the different treated mice. MDA is a well-known marker of oxidative stress/damage.

As was expected, the fluoride (F) only treatment group showed significantly elevated MDA levels vs. the non-fluoride treated control. The F + Curcumin group saw reduced MDA levels vs. the fluoride only group, demonstrating curcumin’s neuroprotective activity against fluoride associated neurotoxicity.

The study concluded,

“Our study thus demonstrate that daily single dose of 120 ppm F result in highly significant increases in the LPO [lipid peroxidation, i.e. brain rancidity] as well as neurodegenerative changes in neuron cell bodies of selected hippocampal regions. Supplementation with curcumin significantly reduce the toxic effect of F to near normal level by augmenting the antioxidant defense through its scavenging property and provide an evidence of having therapeutic role against oxidative stress mediated neurodegeneration.”

Discussion

This is far from the first study to demonstrate curcumin’s remarkable brain-saving properties. From the perspective of the primary research alone, there are over two hundred peer-reviewed published studies indicating that curcumin is a neuroprotective agent. On our own turmeric database we have 115 articles proving this statement: Turmeric Protects The Brain.  We have also featured studies on turmeric’s ability to protect and restore the brain:

Considering the many chemical insults we face on a daily basis in the post-industrial world, turmeric may very well be the world’s most important herb, with over 600 evidence-based health applications.

Study Proves Fluoride Does Not Promote Dental Health – US Teeth “Significantly” Worse than UK

us-teeth-uk-teeth

By Claire Bernish | Natural Blaze

Blowing the pro-water-fluoridation argument out of the water, a new study by Harvard and University College London just found Brits — notoriously crooked smiles and all — actually have better dental health than people in the United States. No, seriously.

Related Article: Other Nations Avoid This Like the Plague, Yet the US Shamelessly Peddles It

Despite a water fluoridation rate of 66%, and 74% for those who rely on a public source, Americans’ dental health simply doesn’t match up to that of their British counterparts — where only 10% of supply contains fluoride.

“Contrary to popular belief, our study showed that the oral health of U.S. citizens is not better than the English, with Americans having significantly more missing teeth,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Richard Watt, Professor in Dental Public Health, Dept. of Epidemiology and Public Health, at UCL.

There is a longstanding belief in the United States that the British have terrible teeth, much worse than U.S. citizens. This view dates back at least 100 years, with toothpaste adverts extolling the virtues of American smiles.

Contemporary examples of this belief in popular U.S. culture range from The Simpsons to the popular Hollywood character Austin Powers and his repugnant smile.

Related Article: New Landmark Study: ‘No Evidence’ Water Fluoridation Prevents Cavities

Researchers looked to data on thousands of people in the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and the English Adult Dental Health Survey and found the “mean number of missing teeth was significantly higher in the U.S.,” at 7.31 versus 6.97 in England. The numbers are striking for juveniles, as 12-year-old Britons with missing or filled teeth averaged 0.7, while U.S. 12-year-olds averaged 1.3. With fluoridated water being touted as the reason for outstanding dental health in the U.S., the results of this study certainly call such boastful claims to task.

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found rates of dental fluorosis — “caused by long-term ingestion of fluoride during the time teeth are forming” and characterized by white spots in its mildest forms, to “staining andpitting in the more severe forms” — increased from 1999-2004 (the year of its study data) over previous numbers in the period from 1986-1987. This happened despite the original goal of fluoridation in the 1930s of decreasing the dental fluorosis rate.According to the CDC’s web page on Community Fluoridation:

Water and processed beverages (e.g. soft drinks and fruit juices [note: food processed using fluoridated water is listed elsewhere]) can provide approximately 75% of a person’s fluoride intake […]You should know the fluoride concentration in your primary source of drinking water, especially if you have young children.

With all this fluoride consumed in the U.S., one would expect the Harvard/UCL study to have dramatically different findings — if fluoridated water were actually doing what the government purports. Though the study did not factor in rates of fluoridation — and indeed was “not able to explore in depth potential explanations for [its] findings” — the comparison is certainly worth consideration.

“Water fluoridation was implemented before statistics had been compiled on its safety or effectiveness,” Stephen Peckham, Director and Professor of Health Policy at Kent University’s Centre for Health Service Studies, told the Guardian. “You can’t really confidently say that water fluoridation is either safe or effective. There is a problem where the evidence is seen as either totally in favor or totally negative, and it’s more murky than that.”

Doubts, as the Guardian pointed out, certainly abound, as experts and researchers have cited studies finding correlations to fluoridated water supplies and bladder cancer, bone cancer in boys, hyperthyroidism, hip fractures, and lower IQ in children.

“It’s been going on since 1950, and we are still having the same arguments over the same research,” Peckham continued. “We don’t have the information to address this. I think they should have a moratorium [on water fluoridation].”

In the meantime, you might want to rethink jabbing the Brits for their, er, gangly smiles.

Short Film Reveals the Lunacy of Water Fluoridation

By Dr. Mercola

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has hailed water fluoridation as one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century.

Beginning in 1945, it was claimed that adding fluoride to drinking water was a safe and effective way to improve people’s dental health. Over the decades, many bought into this hook, line and sinker, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

The featured film, “Our Daily Dose,” reviews some of this evidence. As noted in the film’s synopsis:

“Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert lays out the dangers of water fluoridation informatively and creatively, highlighting the most current research and interviewing top-tier doctors, activists, and attorneys close to the issue.

Through thoughtful examination of old beliefs and new science, the film alerts us to the health threat present in the water and beverages we rely on every day.”

Share This Film With Those Still Sitting On the Fence on Fluoride!

The film may not offer many brand new revelations to those of you who are already well-informed about the history and documented hazards of fluoride.

It was primarily created as an educational vehicle aimed at those who may not be aware of these issues, or who might not yet be entirely convinced that drinking fluoride isn’t a good thing.

So PLEASE, share this video with all of your friends and family who are on the fence on this issue, and ask them to watch it. It’s only 20 minutes long, but it packs a lot of compelling details into those 20 minutes.

Understanding how fluoride affects your body and brain is particularly important for parents with young children, and pregnant women.

It’s really crucial to know that you should NEVER mix infant formula with fluoridated tap water for example, as this may overexpose your child to 100 times the proposed “safe” level of fluoride exposure for infants!

If your child suffers with ADD/ADHD, drinking fluoridated water may also worsen his or her condition. Ditto for those with underfunctioning thyroid. So please, do share this video with your social networks, as it could make a big difference in people’s health.

Fluoride Is Both an Endocrine Disruptor and a Neurotoxin

Scientific investigations have revealed that fluoride is an endocrine disrupting chemical,1 and a developmental neurotoxin that impacts short-term and working memory, and lowers IQ in children.2

It has been implicated as a contributing factor in the rising rates of both attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)3,4 and thyroid disease.

Indeed, fluoride was used in Europe to reduce thyroid activity in hyperthyroid patients as late as the 1970s, and reduced thyroid function is associated with fluoride intakes as low as 0.05 to 0.1 mg fluoride per kilogram body weight per day (mg/kg/day).5

For over 50 Years, Fluoride Levels Were Too High, Government Admits

Children are particularly at risk for adverse effects of overexposure, and in April 2015, the US government admitted that the “optimal” level of fluoride recommended since 1962 had in fact been too high.

As a result, over 40 percent of American teens show signs of fluoride overexposure6 — a condition known as dental fluorosis. In some areas, dental fluorosis rates are as high as 70 to 80 percent, with some children suffering from advanced forms.

So, for the first time, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) lowered its recommended level of fluoride in drinking water7,8,9 by 40 percent, from an upper limit of 1.2 milligrams per liter (mg/L) to 0.7 mg/L.

The HHS said it will evaluate dental fluorosis rates among children in 10 years to assess whether they were correct about this new level being protective against dental fluorosis.

But just what is the acceptable level of harm in the name of cavity prevention?

A number of studies10,11,12,13 have shown that children who with moderate to severe dental fluorosis score worse on tests measuring cognitive skills and IQ than peers without fluorosis — a clear revelation highlighted in the film, as some still insist that dental fluorosis is nothing more than a cosmetic issue.

The Price We Pay for Cavity Prevention

According to the film, the CDC estimates water fluoridation decreases dental decay by, at most, 25 percent. Recent research14,15 however, suggests the real effect may be far lower. Based on the findings of three papers assessing the effectiveness of fluoridation on tooth decay, the researchers concluded that water fluoridation does not reduce cavities to a statistically significant degree in permanent teeth.

If that’s the case, then why are we still jeopardizing our children’s long-term thyroid and brain health by adding fluoride to drinking water?

Fluoride — like many other poisons — was originally declared safe based on dosage, but we now know that timing of exposure can play a big role in its effects as well. Children who are fed infant formula mixed with fluoridated water receive very high doses, and may be affected for life as a result of this early exposure.

Fluoride can also cross the placenta, causing developing fetuses to be exposed to fluoride. Considering the fact that fluoride has endocrine-disrupting activity, this is hardly a situation amenable to the good health of that child. It’s important to realize that fluoride is not a nutrient. It’s a drug, and it’s the ONLY drug that is purposely added directly into drinking water.

This route of delivery completely bypasses standard rules relating to informed consent, which is foundational for ethical medical practice. What’s worse, there’s no way to keep track of the dosage. And no one is keeping track of side effects.

Infants Are Severely and Routinely Overdosed on Fluoride

According to the recent Iowa Study, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the CDC, infants and young children are being massively overdosed on fluoride. This study, which is the largest US study conducted measuring the amount of fluoride children ingest, concluded that:

  • 100 percent of infants receiving infant formula mixed with fluoridated tap water get more than the allegedly safe dose of fluoride. Some formula-fed infants receive 100 times the safe level on a daily basis
  • 30 percent of 1-year-olds exceed the recommended safe dose
  • 47 percent of 2- to 3-olds exceed the safe dose

Most Water Authorities Use Toxic Waste Product, Not Pharmaceutical Grade Fluoride

As stated, fluoride is a drug, and research into the health effects of fluoride is based on pharmaceutical grade fluoride. However, a majority of water authorities do not even use pharmaceutical grade fluoride; they use hydrofluosilicic acid, or hexafluorosilicic acid — toxic waste products of the phosphate fertilizer industry, which are frequently contaminated with heavy metals such as arsenic, mercury, cadmium, lead, and other toxins.

This is a key point that many fluoride proponents fail to address when arguing for its use. Indeed, holding elected officials accountable for procuring proof that the specific fluoridation chemical used actually fulfills fluoride’s health and safety claims and complies with all regulations, laws, and risk assessments required for safe drinking water, has been a successful strategy for halting water fluoridation in a number of areas around the US.

While the idea of hiding toxic industrial waste in drinking water would sound like a questionable idea at best to most people, it was welcomed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In a 1983 letter, Rebecca Hanmer, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Water, wrote:

“… In regard to the use of fluosilicic acid as a source of fluoride for fluoridation, this Agency regards such use as an ideal environmental solution to a long-standing problem. By recovering by-product fluosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized, and water utilities have a low-cost source of fluoride available to them…”

Data and Science Does Not Support Water Fluoridation

Ninety-seven percent of Western European countries do not fluoridate their water, and data collected by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that non-fluoridating countries have seen the exact same reduction in dental cavities as the US,16 where a majority of water is still fluoridated. If fluoride were in fact the cause of this decline, non-fluoridating countries should not show the same trend.

Clearly, declining rates of dental decay are not in and of themselves proof that water fluoridation actually works. It’s also worth noting that well over 99 percent of the fluoride added to drinking water never even touches a tooth; it simply runs down the drain, contaminating and polluting the environment.

Ending Fluoridation Will Be the Greatest Public Health Achievement of the 21st Century

Despite the fact that the scientific evidence does not support fluoridation, those who question or openly oppose it are typically demonized and written off as crazy conspiracy theorists. Many fluoride supporters claim the science of fluoridation was “settled” some 50 years ago — effectively dismissing all the revelations produced by modern science! To defend their position, they rely on outdated science, because that’s all they have. You’d be extremely hard-pressed to find modern research supporting water fluoridation.

Indeed, as noted in the film, ending water fluoridation will be one of the greatest public health achievements of the 21st Century, and I for one will not stop until that happens. To learn more about why water fluoridation runs counter to good science, common sense, and the public good, please see the following video, which recounts 10 important fluoride facts.

The Best Cavity Prevention Is Your Diet

The best way to prevent cavities is not through fluoride, but by addressing your diet. One of the keys to oral health is eating a traditional diet or real foods, rich in fresh, unprocessed vegetables, nuts, and grass-fed meats. By avoiding sugars and processed foods, you prevent the proliferation of the bacteria that cause decay in the first place.

According to Dr. Francesco Branca, Director of WHO’s Department of Nutrition for Health and Development:18 “We have solid evidence that keeping intake of free sugars to less than 10 percent of total energy intake reduces the risk of overweight, obesity and tooth decay.”
Other natural strategies that can significantly improve your dental health is eating plenty of fermented vegetables, and doing oil pulling with coconut oil. Also make sure you’re getting plenty of high quality animal-based omega-3 fats, as research suggests even moderate amounts of omega-3 fats may help ward off gum disease. My favorite source is krill oil.

Help End the Practice of Fluoridation

There’s no doubt about it: fluoride should not be ingested. Even scientists from the EPA’s National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a “chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.” Furthermore, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 41 percent of American adolescents now have dental fluorosis — unattractive discoloration and mottling of the teeth that indicate overexposure to fluoride. Clearly, children are being overexposed, and their health and development put in jeopardy. Why?

The only real solution is to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation in the first place. Fortunately, the Fluoride Action Network has a game plan to END water fluoridation worldwide. Clean pure water is a prerequisite to optimal health. Industrial chemicals, drugs, and other toxic additives really have no place in our water supplies.

What Are the Top 4 Dangerous Toxins to the Brain?

 | Naturalsociety 

brain toxinsIf you had to name the toxins that posed the most danger to the human brain, what would you say? Would your guesses be some of the toxins that we find in our air, food, or water supply? Probably, since they are all around us. While there are countless toxic compounds infiltrating our bodies and causing disease, there are 4 toxins which are especially prevalent and dangerous. This is both good news and bad, as they can likely be avoided.

Writer Derek Henry is a holistic health coach and natural health blogger with NaturalNews. For many NaturalSociety.com readers, his top 4 brain toxins list will come as no surprise—it’s the things we talk about here quite often.

These toxins can do horrific damage, but knowing about them and where to find them can save you from their wrath.

1. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)

This is an additive found in processed foods. It’s known as an excitotoxin primarily used as a “flavor enhancer”. The problem, Henry says, is that the compound can damage the brain, potentially leading to things like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other long term ailments. Additionally, a new study published in the Journal of Headache Pain reveals that just a single dose of monosodium glutamate (MSG) caused headaches in healthy subjects that were tested.

While some foods will list MSG outright on their labels, it’s one of those things that has multiple alternative names. To avoid it, look for things like: yeast extract, soy sauce, soy protein, whey protein, textured protein, natrium glutamate, hydrolyzed protein, gelatin, autolyzed yeast, or any of the ingredients listed here.

Thankfully, recent research indicates ginger may be able to protect you against MSG, even reversing the damage that’s already been done.

2. Fluoride

Found in your toothpaste and likely your drinking water, fluoride is a controversial toxin linked to numerous health ailments. The Fluoride Action Network cites 39 studies linking the toxin to lowered IQ levels. Others suggest it may affect memory, learning, fetal brain development, and behavior. For this reason, numerous communities around the U.S are rejecting toxic water fluoridation, following the rest of the world (which doesn’t fluoridate water supplies due to health concerns).

3. Heavy metals

There are several heavy metals that can do considerable damage when ingested in large amounts. They are found in dental amalgams, agricultural chemicals, pollution that makes its way to the water supply, and even vaccines. It is essential to take some measure to detox these heavy metals from your body.

4. Artificial Sweeteners

Aspartame is a much-vilified chemical found in everything from sodas to chewing gum. Some research has suggested it can increase the risk of developing deadly tumors, as well as causing anxiety, depression, speech problems, and migraines.

Knowing where these toxins are found equips you with the tools to avoid them.

Dallas Ends 5 Decades of Water Fluoridation: Saves $1 Million Annually in the Process

 | Naturalsociety | 3rd May 2014

floridewaterIt is taking effect in cities across the nation. Anti-fluoridation activists and knowledgeable consumers have finally tipped the scale, and now Dallas will cease poisoning its water supply with sodium fluoride, saving taxpayers a million dollars annually, along with a few IQ points.water tap fluoride Dallas Ends 5 Decades of Water Fluoridation: Saves $1 Million Annually in the Processwater tap fluoride Dallas Ends 5 Decades of Water Fluoridation: Saves $1 Million Annually in the Processwater tap fluoride Dallas Ends 5 Decades of Water Fluoridation: Saves $1 Million Annually in the Process

After months of regular visits by citizens to city council meetings, the Dallas City Council decided last week to stop water fluoridation. Perhaps it was economic incentive alone that allowed the council to decide to end five decades of water fluoridation, or the tireless work of citizens who continuously probed council members about why they would fluoridate city water when it has been proven to be very dangerous to human health.

NBC 5 Dallas Fort Worth reported that the results from the last meeting surprised anti-fluoridation activists, who have been trying to get someone to listen to them about this industrial chemical and its risks for years.

Dallas City Council Member Sheffie Kadane said he discussed ending fluoridation with City Manager A.C. Gonzalez, citing Kadane as saying:

“We don’t need it and we’d just save a million dollars that we can use for something else. … We’re looking into seeing what we can do immediately so we can get those funds up front now.”

Kadane was backed by Council members Scott Griggs and Jennifer Staubach Gates. Anti-fluoridation activist Regina Imburgia said:

“Yeah. … This is major big. I knew we would prevail. It only makes sense. We’re spending too much money on an ineffective program”.

Imburgia said that there was no need to put fluoride in water when it had obvious health risks, and that people who really wanted fluoride to prevent tooth decay could just squeeze it out of a tube of toothpaste.

City council members focused on the savings of ending fluoridation, rather than the fact that its removal from municipal water was a public health concern.

Health Concerns over Toxic Fluoride

There have been multiple studies proving that fluoride is not metabolized easily by the body, and accumulates in the tissues and bones (much like glyphosate – a main ingredient in pesticides). Other studies have proven that accumulated fluoride can alter the activities of some enzymes involved in free-radical metabolism and whole brain functioning. Philippe Grandjean MD from the Department of Environmental Health at the Harvard School of Public Health, and Philip Landrigan MD, from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai, New York, state that industrial chemicals can injure the developing brain in children, lowering their memory and IQ.

Fluoride is among five scientifically identified industrial chemicals that lead to neurological impairment:

  • Lead
  • Methylmercury
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls
  • Arsenic
  • Fluoride

Researchers Grandjean and Landrigan postulate that there are even more neurotoxicants which remain undiscovered, and propose a global prevention strategy to control what they describe as the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.

Anti-fluoridation advocates in Dallas will get their water fluoride free now, even if it is the last decades’ poor economy driving the point home to city officials.

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

Sayer Ji | Activistpost 

turmericinspoonjpgFluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no-stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising!

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

Now, a new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine titled, “Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride: An in vivo evidence,” adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a natural spice-derived protective agent against the various health effects associated with this compound is available.

The study was authored by researchers from the Department of Zoology, University College of Science, M.L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India, who have spent the past decade investigating the mechanisms through which fluoride induce severe neurodegenerative changes in the mammalian brain, particularly in cells of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex.[i] [ii]
The study opens by describing the historical backdrop for concern about fluoride’s significant and wide ranging toxicity:

Fluoride (F) is probably the first inorganic ion which drew attention of the scientific world for its toxic effects and now the F toxicity through drinking water is well-recognized as a global problem. Health effect reports on F exposure also include various cancers, adverse reproductive activities, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.[1,2]

The study focused on fluoride induced neurotoxicity, identifying excitoxicity (stimulation of the neuron to the point of death) and oxidative stress as the two main drivers of neurodegeneration. It has been observed that subjects with the condition known as fluorosis, a mottling of tooth enamel caused by excessive exposure to fluoride during tooth development, also have neurodegenerative changes associated with a form of oxidative stress known as lipid peroxidation (rancidity). Excess lipid peroxidation in the brain can lead to a decrease in total brain phospholipid content. Owing to these well-known mechanisms of fluoride associated neurotoxicity and neurodegeneration, the researchers identified the primary polyphenol in the spice turmeric — known as curcumin – as an ideal agent worth testing as a neuroprotective substance. Previous research on curcumin indicates that it is capable of activing as an antioxidant in 3 distinct ways by protecting against: 1) singlet oxygen 2) hyrodxyl radicals and 3) superoxide radical damage. Also, curcumin appears to raise endogenous glutathione production in the brain, a major antioxidant defense system.

In order to assess the neurotoxic effects of fluoride and prove curcumin’s protective role against it, researchers randomly divided up mice into four groups, for 30 days:

  1. Control (no fluoride)
  2. Fluoride (120 ppm): fluoride was given in distilled water drinking water without restriction.
  3. Fluoride (120 ppm/30 mg/kg body weight) + Curcumin: Oral dose of curcumin dissolved in olive oil along with fluoride in drinking water
  4. Curcumin: (30 mg/kg body weight)

In order to ascertain the effect of treatment, the researchers measured the malondialdehyde (MDA) content in the brains of the different treated mice. MDA is a well-known marker of oxidative stress/damage.

As was expected, the fluoride (F) only treatment group showed significantly elevated MDA levels vs. the non-fluoride treated control. The F + Curcumin group saw reduced MDA levels vs. the fluoride only group, demonstrating curcumin’s neuroprotective activity against fluoride associated neurotoxicity.

The study concluded,

Our study thus demonstrate that daily single dose of 120 ppm F result in highly significant increases in the LPO [lipid peroxidation, i.e. brain rancidity] as well as neurodegenerative changes in neuron cell bodies of selected hippocampal regions. Supplementation with curcumin significantly reduce the toxic effect of F to near normal level by augmenting the antioxidant defense through its scavenging property and provide an evidence of having therapeutic role against oxidative stress mediated neurodegeneration.

Discussion

This is far from the first study to demonstrate curcumin’s remarkable brain-saving properties. From the perspective of the primary research alone, there are over two hundred peer-reviewed published studies indicating that curcumin is a neuroprotective agent. On our own turmeric database we have 115 articles proving this statement: Turmeric Protects The Brain. We have also featured studies on turmeric’s ability to protect and restore the brain:

Considering the many chemical insults we face on a daily basis in the post-industrial world, turmeric may very well be the world’s most important herb, with over 600 evidence-based health applications.
