The study, published Tuesday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, evaluated nearly 300 sets of mothers and children in Mexico and tested the children twice for cognitive development over the course of 12 years. However, although the researchers found a potential connection to a child’s exposure to fluoride in utero, they found no significant influence from fluoride exposure on brain development once a child was born.
NOTE: About 75% of Americans are exposed to fluoride through public water, but Mexico does not have a fluoridation program.
Researchers raise alarms about unknown health risks of GE’s Omniscan and Bayer’s Magnevist, drugs injected to get better MRI pictures that contain the heavy metal gadolinium.
With a family history of breast cancer, Marcie Jacobs decided in June 2001 that an MRI screening was her best preventive option.
As is common with MRIs, Jacobs was injected beforehand with a contrast agent, a drug that helps sharpen the resulting images. But after a few of these treatments, she began noticing some strange cognitive effects. Jacobs began missing meetings. Over the next several years she had additional MRIs. The math skills that were crucial to her job as finance manager started deteriorating. READ MORE…
Forty-one million IQ points. That’s what Dr. David Bellinger determined Americans have collectively forfeited as a result of exposure to lead, mercury, and organophosphate pesticides. In a 2012 paper published by the National Institutes of Health, Bellinger, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, compared intelligence quotients among children whose mothers had been exposed to these neurotoxins while pregnant to those who had not. Bellinger calculates a total loss of 16.9 million IQ points due to exposure to organophosphates, the most common pesticides used in agriculture.
Our very great concern,” Grandjean and Landrigan wrote, “is that children worldwide are being exposed to unrecognized toxic chemicals that are silently eroding intelligence, disrupting behaviors, truncating future achievements and damaging societies. Read more…
VLA Comment: Apparently there is no mention of the toxic excipients found in the vaccines given to infants at birth for a total of 49 vaccine doses complete with these toxins such as mercury, aluminum, polysorbate 80, phenol, formaldahyde, etc.CDC Vaccine excipients 2015
Gender bending chemicals are everywhere, literally impossible to avoid. They act as endocrine disruptors (EDs) that block, decrease, or overstimulate hormones. Most commonly, EDs mimic estrogen, lower testosterone and prevent the male hormone from doing its job, causing males to exhibit more female traits. The resulting hormonal imbalances may be at the root of disturbing worldwide trends for males that include delayed puberty, falling sperm counts, shrinking size of genitals, far fewer boys with far more genital deformities being born than ever before, and a rise in gender fluidity as boys are increasingly feminized. A similar effect is seen across the planet in wildlife, with reports of a rise in hermaphrodite amphibians, male fish developing eggs in their testicles and complete sex change in species with ED exposure. Governmental-industrial alliances have unleashed weapons of mass feminization throughout Planet Earth, involving all inhabitants in a dangerous and uncontrolled experiment whose results point to a dystopian future, the likes of which make Soylent Green look tame.
VLA COMMENT: In the early 90s Rachel’s Hazardous Newsletter warned us about “hormonal disruptors” such as Atrazine which is still used today in farming despite the warnings. The newsletter said that male sperm count was down 50% since 1945 and that the male determines male on three critical days in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Autism Rates in California Schools Jumped As Much as 17% Among Kindergartners Since Mandatory Vaccine Bill Was Signed
When SB 277 (no shots, no school in California) went into effect, many parents with young children who were behind the vaccination schedule or did not start vaccinating yet, were forced to catch up or they could longer go to a public school. As a result, many children received a high amount of vaccines in a very short period of time.
In total, a jump of nearly 300 extra cases was seen between the ’14-15 school year and the ’15-’16 one, after SB277 took effect.
Because vaccines have mercury, aluminum, and many toxins in them, it is becoming more frequent for kids to experience severe adverse reactions, including many symptoms that are identical to those on the autism spectrum.
While nationwide, 1 out of 68 kids are autistic, the number is now more than 1 out of 65 kindergarten kids in California public school. Read more…
MOST POWERFUL SYNOPSIS ON THE VACCINE ISSUE TO DATE
(note informational correction update on video)“The hepatitis B vaccine is recommended to be given to all newborns in the U.S. within hours of being born. In the state of NY, it is mandated to be given to newborns whose mothers test positive for Hepatitis B, unless the mother knows she can utilize a religious exemption to refuse it”.
LAURA HAYES is one of the best speakers and activists on the safety and efficacy of vaccines!
VLA COMMENT: VLA has been in the business of collecting data, articles and you tubes on vaccines since the 90s. This speech by Laura Hayes taken from the Weston A. Price Foundation conference in Nov. 2016, in my opinion, is the single most profound synopsis of the Vaccine issue I have every heard. This speech is 1 hr 20 min. I urge everyone in ear shot of my voice to take the time and get blown away; to pretend that they went to the conference, didn’t have to pay and are at the conference yet still remaining in the comfort of their living room. Laura Hayes’ lecture should be played at every state legislature with full legislator presence…but that might be quite a task unless you are the Pope.
I would therefore suggest that this video, like a TED talk, be played in small groups of legislators.
Lots of legislators in Iowa for example, stay at hotels or housing in Des Moines during the legislative session. One would think that these men and women might like a private screening, a little wine and some pate on one of those cold lonely nights.
Every town library, near the capitol buildings will have a room with audio video equipment. And usually they will also allow snacks. Another alternative is to get a legislator to hold it at a private room at the capitol. See if that is possible. He or she can sent out a colleague letter invitation.
I would guarantee that once one group sees this that they would help organized other group of their colleague legislators. That is how profound this is !
And what about the principles, administrator and supervisors at schools as a group – one cold night, with popcorn.
After you see this video, here is the transcript of the speech in .doc form so that you can cut and paste different sections for your use in articles, facebook strategies or invitations to the video lecture at your library. I suggest when putting this on facebook you consider focusing on some purposeful action such as but not limited to the suggestions above.
A new study shows that nearly all of these patient advocacy groups are captured by the drug industry.
David Hilzenrath at the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) reports that at least 39 of 42 patient advocacy groups who participated in discussions with the FDA over agency review processes for prescription drugs received funding from pharmaceutical companies. And at least 15 have representatives of drug or biotechnology companies on their governing boards.
The study is particularly notable now because Congress is poised to pass the 21st Century Cures Act, which trades temporary additional funding for the National Institutes of Health and the FDA for permanent weakening of the FDA’s approval process. Over 1,400 lobbyists have been working on this bill, which would be a major financial boon to the drug and medical device industries.
Patient advocacy groups have factored heavily into the lobbying effort. According to an analysis from research group Avalere in December 2014, 43 percent of public comments on the House version of the bill were from patient advocacy groups. READ MORE…
The report is the most complete survey of land bird numbers to date and attempts to assess the health of populations on a continental basis. It concludes that, while there are still a lot of birds in the sky, there aren’t anywhere near as many as there used to be.
Evening grosbeaks are down 92 per cent since 1970. Snowy owls have lost 64 per cent of their numbers. The Canada warbler has lost 63 per cent of it population.
Tally it all up and there should be another 1.5 billion birds perching in backyards and flying around in forests than there are, says the report. Read more…
