Drink Fluoride , Lower IQ

"This finding adds strength to the rapidly accumulating evidence that a pregnant woman’s intake of fluoride similar to that from artificially fluoridated water can cause a large loss of IQ in the offspring."

Authors of US-funded fluoride-IQ study strengthen their landmark findings


From the day it was published (Sept 19, 2017) the Fluoride Action Network has been drawing attention to the US-government funded (National Institutes of Health) Bashash et al. study. This 12- year mother-child study found a strong correlation between the levels of fluoride exposure during pregnancy and lowered IQ in their offspring at 4 and 6-12 years of age.

Last week, at a conference on environmental epidemiology in Germany, members of this same research team announced additional findings that confirm and strengthen their original report (announced). Very young children, age 1-3 years, also show loss of IQ. In other words, their study now covers the ages of the offspring from one to twelve years.

For the age of 1- 3 years, for every 1 mg/L increase in the urine fluoride level of their pregnant mothers, the children averaged 2.4 points lower IQ scores.  The finding was statistically significant and accounted for potential confounding factors.

Thomas et al., concluded “Our findings add to our team’s recently published report on prenatal fluoride and cognition at ages 4 and 6–12 years [the Bashash et al 2017 paper] by suggesting that higher in utero exposure to F has an adverse impact on offspring cognitive development that can be detected earlier, in the first three years of life.”

This finding adds strength to the rapidly accumulating evidence that a pregnant woman’s intake of fluoride similar to that from artificially fluoridated water can cause a large loss of IQ in the offspring.

The study was conducted in Mexico City and had over 400 mother-child pairs.  Fluoridated salt is the main source of fluoride exposure in Mexico City.  It is designed to give the same intake of fluoride as fluoridated water.  Mexico City drinking water fluoride is mostly low.  To get an estimate of total fluoride intake in the women and fluoride exposure to the fetus, the researchers measured the mother’s urine fluoride levels during pregnancy.  The levels were indeed in the same range as has been found in pregnant women in fluoridated New Zealand [Brough et al 2015] and in adults in other countries with fluoridated water.  There is no question that the intake of fluoride in this study is similar to and directly applicable to intakes in countries with artificial fluoridation.

Michael Connett, JD , who is heading up the Fluoride Action Network’s legal challenge calling on the EPA to ban the deliberate addition of fluoride to the drinking water under provisions in the Toxic Substance and Control Act (TSCA) said that,

“This new finding from NIH's fluoride/IQ study further strengthens the evidence of fluoride’s neurotoxicity. The fluoride levels at issue in the study are within the range that pregnant women in the U.S. will receive, so the findings are clearly relevant to our ongoing case against the EPA.”

A nuclear dinosaur

A nuclear dinosaur

What do you do with an aging nuclear power plant that is going to be closed anyway in a little more than a year?

As the shutdown date for the Pilgrim nuclear power plant approaches, the 45-year-old facility in Plymouth is coughing and wheezing all the way to the grave, and local officials and activists are worried the end – and afterlife – will be problematic.

Pilgrim’s most recent problems occurred during the recent storms when, first, the owners did not shut the plant down even though the ability to evacuate should a problem occur was compromised by the weather. Plant officials did shut the reactor down leading up to the third storm, with a problem in the heating system, but when they went to restart, found a transformer needed to be replaced before turning the switch back on. It was just the latest problem to haunt the one-time reliable facility.

On Sunday, inspectors discovered a problem with a critical safety mechanism that is used to stop fission from occurring in the nuclear reactor. Officials discovered clamps on nine pipes used in a hydraulic system to control a shutdown and prevent nuclear fission were incorrectly installed. For the uninitiated, fission is the precursor to a meltdown.

Pilgrim has been an ingrained part of the landscape for the past four decades so not much attention has been paid to the plant’s problems. Or maybe it’s because the plant’s problems are so numerous recently that it’s become a case of crying wolf or people are just generally inured to the reports. The Cape Cod Times, though, has been vigilant in reporting Pilgrim’s travails, running a deep, well-reported, and informative series in 2016 about Pilgrim and its nuclear cousins. Their more recent coverage includes some ominous details and warnings from the trove of experts the reporter, Christine Legere, has amassed.

“In an event such as an earthquake, the shaking could affect the pipes with the faulty clamps and result in a failure of the connected control rods to insert in Pilgrim’s reactor. Nuclear fission would then continue to occur,” the story says. “Operators might even have to resort to injecting a so-called ‘poison’ solution into the reactor to get nuclear fission to stop, according to Neil Sheehan, spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The solution is made of a liquid boron. While plants are equipped with the backup pump system to ‘poison’ neutrons, it has yet to be used in the United States.”

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 to be introduced!

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 to be introduced!

Yesterday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his intention to introduce "The Hemp Farming Act of 2018", adding a powerful voice for Hemp on the Hill!

NHA chairman Geoff Whaling celebrates the announcement made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to introduce bipartisan legislation. Whaling said, "This commitment by McConnell brings the industrial hemp crop to the forefront of discussion across America”

As a founding member of the US Hemp Round Table, we are pleased to share their press release.

FRANKFORT – The U.S. Hemp Roundtable, the industry association that joins the nation’s leading hemp companies and all of its major grassroots organizations, today lauded U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell upon his announcement of the pending introduction of “The Hemp Farming Act of 2018.” Leader McConnell’s bill, which is co-sponsored by U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Rand Paul (R-KY), would permanently remove hemp from regulation as a controlled substance and treat it as an agricultural commodity. Similar legislation, H.R. 3530, the “Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2017,” was introduced last year by Rep. James Comer (R-KY), and has been co-sponsored by 43 of his colleagues, from both sides of the aisle.

“The hemp industry is very grateful to Leader McConnell for his strong leadership over the years on behalf of providing Kentucky farmers – and the whole U.S. agricultural commodity – this exciting new economic opportunity,” stated Roundtable President Brian Furnish, an 8th generation tobacco farmer from Cynthiana, who credits the Leader with empowering his transition from tobacco to

Weekend anti-gun protests in D.C., like previous Left-wing demonstrations, generate tons of trash for others to clean up

Weekend anti-gun protests in D.C., like previous Left-wing demonstrations, generate tons of trash for others to clean up

(Natural News) Left-leaning Americans like to lecture everyone about how environmentally aware they are, but sometimes other things are more important than clean and green.
Like guns or, more specifically, protesting guns.

As you may have heard, tens of thousands of people showed up in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to demand that something is done about firearms — not the people who misuse them for deadly purposes.

In the wake of those protests, demonstrators left mountains of trash and garbage — signs, water bottles, food containers, and various other things — behind for local trash collectors paid for local taxpayers to clean up.

“Thousands of protestors at March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., Saturday packed the streets holding signs promoting an anti-gun agenda, but many of them left those signs out in the cold after the march,” Breitbart News documented in a report the following day accompanied by lots of photos.
“The signs that the self-described socially conscious protestors held up high during the march, along with countless other items of trash, were littered on the streets of D.C. like old rags,” the site noted further.

Indeed, the accompanying photos showed mountains of trash piled up by city workers after the protestors had all gone home. Many of the protest signs were hand-made, but scores of others were obviously pre-printed and came from any number of Democratic National Committee-aligned groups.

“Cardboard signs bearing messages such as “My dress code is stricter than your gun laws,” and signs demanding that no money be sent to the pro-gun National Rifle Association were tossed aside like yesterday’s news,” Breitbart reported.

In addition to tossing their signs on the ground, many ‘environmentalist’ protestors also discarded food and beverages, along with food containers.

But by a long shot, this wasn’t the first time the ‘environmentally conscious’ Left created havoc — and a massive mess — during protests. (Related: Exposed: Anti-gun teachers, along with Pravda media, exploiting students of Parkland, Florida shooting.)

Grid security falls to industry to self-regulate

Grid security falls to industry to self-regulate

BOSTON — The U.S. power grid is coming under increasing attacks from hackers, but security experts say rules on dealing with cyber threats are being written mostly by the energy industry, leaving the public in the dark.

A cyber attack against the grid could do as much damage as a bomb, experts say, cutting off electricity to hospitals, banks and other assets, disabling devices from cellphones to traffic lights, and threatening lives if heating and air conditioning systems are cut off long enough.

Regional utilities like National Grid, Eversource and Unitil are upgrading their physical infrastructure and computer systems to deal with the increasing threats from hackers, but remain tight-lipped about how much they are spending or where the money is being invested.

Federal and state regulators set guidelines for utilities to report physical and cyber attacks, but the industry is largely allowed to develop its own policies and security plans for dealing with the threats, which are kept under wraps.

“Basically, the attitude so far has been to let the market deal with it,” said Juliette Kayyem, a national security expert and former assistant secretary at Homeland Security under President Barack Obama. “But this is a national security imperative, which requires government resolve.”

'Public deserves to know'
Kayyem said the lack of state and federal government standards on grid security is putting the public at risk.

“This is ‘finger’s crossed’ or ‘trust us’ policy,” she said. “We don’t do that with the telecom or nuclear industries, so why would we do it with the power grid?”

Trouble in Paradise?

No action taken on charges against Phillipston administrative assistant; All found to be baseless

Staff Writer
Tuesday, March 20, 2018
PHILLIPSTON — Three charges brought against town Administrative Assistant Kevin Flynn were found to be unsubstantiated, and no action was taken by the Selectboard during an open executive session.

The charges brought against Flynn by Thomas Brouillet, chairman of the Selectboard, who sought to “relieve Mr. Flynn from his duties as administrative assistant” were for the following reasons:
Scheduling of a meeting between the Town of Templeton and the Phillipston Finance Committee relative to regional dispatch services for the upcoming fiscal year;

The posting of an agenda item pertaining to contract negotiations with a firefighter;

Contacting Town Counsel without authorization from the Selectboard.

Flynn chose to hold the executive session in open meeting. Nearly 20 residents, including Town Hall employees, the police chief and another police officer, filled the room in support of Flynn. Attorney Brian Maser of KP Law (formerly Kopleman & Paige) was present and conveyed to the individuals in the audience they had a right to be present, but could not speak out or interrupt the proceedings.

Brouillet announced that he would not allow anyone in the audience to comment or ask questions.
Because Brouillet filed the complaint, Flynn requested of him, as chairman, to turn over the meeting to the vice-chairman Terry Dymek. Brouillet refused, and an audience member said loudly,
“Oh, give me a break! He brought the charges!”

Brouillet invited her to leave the meeting, but she remained seated. Brouillet read the notice of executive session and was asked repeatedly to speak up. Opal Clark asked if there were copies of the notice printed out. Brouillet said “no,” he didn’t expect people to be at the session. Clark asked to see what’s on the notice and a town employee made copies to distribute.

The complaints Each complaint was addressed in order.

Brouillet said Phillipston had been after Templeton to come forward with a breakdown of the costs for regional dispatch services for the upcoming fiscal year.

“We needed it for the first of March. They gave a dollar amount. I said we were all set and I would bring that amount to Athol. He (Flynn) goes behind my back and schedules a meeting, and when I asked why, he said the FinCom wanted it. It’s insubordination,” Brouillet said.

He said he talked to Flynn on the phone and said they didn’t need a meeting, that he was going to bring what he had to Athol.

Flynn said there were a series of requests involved and a number of times they talked about scheduling a meeting. He referred to his daily agenda used to document actions taken throughout the day. On Feb. 6, there was a joint meeting with the Templeton FinCom to set up a committee to review the budget numbers. On Feb. 7, Brouillet asked about scheduling a meeting. The following day, Brouillet said he wanted a meeting at a different point, because of a schedule conflict. A week later, Brouillet was in the selectmen’s office to sign warrants and asked repeatedly about a meeting. That Friday, March 2, Brouillet was told Templeton sent in the breakdown of figures that were requested, one day later than expected.

Atlanta City Government Hit With Crippling Ransomware Attack

Atlanta City Government Hit With Crippling Ransomware Attack

This antibiotic will ruin you.

This antibiotic will ruin you. 

Hi there, we need to talk. My name is Amy Moser. I have almost written this post at least 20 times and got too overwhelmed and abandoned it. Well here goes…

The antibiotics you took or are taking for your sinus infection, UTI, skin infection, laser eye surgery…ect…may have already damaged you.

Cipro, Levaquin, Avalox, nearly every generic ending in “quin”, “oxacin,””ox,”…are all part of a large family of antibiotics called “Fluoroquinolones.” The FDA finally updated their warning on these antibiotics as of July 2016. They site “multiple system damage that may be irreversible. 

Permanent you guys. Here is the link for the warning if you are a doubting 

Thomas: Take a gander real quick if you are reading this with an eyebrow raised. Trust me, I wish I had been given the opportunity to soak up this information before it was too late.

In 2010, I took Cipro for a UTI and it changed my life forever. A round of antibiotics literally changed the path I was walking, into a path that I couldn’t even crawl on. Multiple spontaneous tendon and ligament ruptures, spinal degeneration, and arthritis that is widespread. We are talking multiple joint dislocations and surgeries to most of my large joints and spine. Twenty surgeries in the last 7 years if you wanna count. I said T W E N T Y. This class of antibiotics were supposed to be only used as a last resort antibiotics, if all other options had failed. They never were supposed to be given for common infections. They damage the body so seriously because they actually damage the mitochondrial DNA. Those affect all cell function. Fantastic. You now have tissue paper tendons and ligaments. You are a human piñata at a party and life is whacking you left and right. Do you know what it feels like to hear and feel your shoulder pull apart like taffy, or your achilles pop and tear apart like an old rubber band? It gets even better. Flouroquinolones cross the blood brain barrier. This can result in psychiatric events, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I was incredibly fortunate not to have the psychiatric side of this.

Here is another sickening truth…the damage is cumulative. The more exposures you have to these antibiotics, the more damage is done to your body. Not just for some people, ALL people. A hundred percent of people who take a Fluoroquinolone antibiotic, show changes in blood flow to the tendon, cartilage, and ligament in their bodies. Each person has a different breaking point depending on their own unique DNA. Some people fall apart or die after 1 pill. I fell apart after my 4th round of Fluoroquinolone antibiotics in my life and some people are on their 25th round and are still oblivious to what is happening inside them until they break. It might not even be a physical one. It may be a psychotic one. By then, it’s too late. The damage is done.

This was my nightmare. It gets worse. There is no cure. No treatment. No relief. No specialist even. I'm telling you…if it hadn’t been for the knowledge that God is ever present and with me…I would have walked out in front of a bus. He is the reason I am sane…well mostly.

I am writing this in hopes that you will educate yourself and your families. Don’t take that antibiotic in ignorance one more time. Don’t take your chances. Don’t be afraid to demand an alternative. You get only one life.

NRA Statement on YouTube Censorship Announcement

Millions of Americans watch YouTube videos every day to learn more about the safe and responsible use of firearms, and those videos show law-abiding gun owners participating in lawful behavior. By banning this content, YouTube is engaging in politically motivated censorship and alienating the millions of people who turn to the website for education and training.

Holyoke Council votes to ask Massachusetts Auditor Suzanne Bump to examine city finances

Holyoke City Hall HOLYOKE -- The City Council has voted to ask Massachusetts Auditor Suzanne M. Bump to do an audit of municipal finances.

The request for such an examination comes after jolts that have included:
  • the Feb. 15 resignation of the city auditor and his criticism that City Hall was failing to follow numerous procedures
  • police confirming Feb. 12 they are investigating a cyber attack that scammed $9,997 from the city treasurer's office in June
  • the city having to hire a financial consultant that completed a $19.1 million reconciliation in the previous fiscal year's ledger that showed all municipal cash is accounted for
  • the City Council and Mayor Alex B. Morse failing until Monday to reach agreement on financial transfers that allowed for the balancing of the budget, nine months into the fiscal year, and setting the new tax rate late. That will hit taxpayers with unusually large property tax bills late this month because they will combine the third- and fourth-quarter bills.
The Council at City Hall Tuesday approved by voice vote an order that the city seek the "use of the State Auditor (Suzanne Bump's Office) to conduct and do an audit of all the city finances for the city of Holyoke." The order had been submitted at the Feb. 20 Council meeting and tabled.

Former city councilor Patricia C. Devine had urged councilors in an email to request that Bump audit city finances, and Ward 2 Councilor Nelson R. Roman filed the order.

"I am proud to have filed this order and believe this step is important because it will go a step further than the recent reconciliation (as) it will look into all city departments and budgets and provide the city with a written document or plan that will allow us to improve accountability and transparency, while improving performance and hopefully lead to Holyoke working more efficiently," Roman said in a text message.

"I am grateful that the Council approved this and that the mayor supports this matter," he said.
Morse told The Republican last month he agreed with the move to contact Bump's office.

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Fluoride Action Network | Bulletin | March 21, 2018  


A mind is a terrible thing to waste*

The following is from a review of our Citizens Petition under the Toxic Control Substances Act
Available evidence suggests that the following are all associated with IQ reductions:
  1. Daily fluoride doses
  2. Urine fluoride levels
  3. Serum fluoride levels, and
  4. Dental fluorosis levels
The 2017 US government-funded Bashash study certainly highlighted the importance of urine fluoride levels. Note this study followed 300 mother-child pairs and found that urine fluoride levels in the mothers – corresponding to fluoride levels experienced by adults in fluoridated communities in the USA-  was associated with a 6 IQ point loss in their offspring.

Each of these four metrics of fluoride exposure provide a more direct assessment of individual fluoride exposure than water fluoride concentration and are thus more probative for risk assessment purposes.

In the study by Wang et al. the authors found a clear dose response relationship between daily fluoride dose and reduced IQ. When this data was quantified using standard techniques Hirzy et al. (2016) it showed that a dose of 1.4 mg/day lowered IQ by 5 IQ points. While the precise extent to which fluoridation is reducing IQ in the U.S. cannot yet be calculated, the dose-response data from Wang et al. (2012) (i.e. a dose of 1.4mg/day lowered IQ by 5 IQ points) using a simple linear extrapolation indicates that daily consumption of one liter of fluoridated water per day during childhood (at a recommended concentration of 0.7ppm would yield a dose of = 0.7mg F/day) would cause IQ to drop by an average of 2.5 points when compared to children with no exposure to fluoride, while consumption of half a liter per day (= 0.35 mg F/day) would cause IQ to drop by an average of 1.25 IQ points.

The Economic Cost of One IQ Point

To prevail in our TSCA lawsuit we have to show that fluoride in drinking water presents an “unreasonable neurotoxic risk” at current exposure levels. As far as the “reasonableness” discussion is concerned the EPA considers the benefits of reducing the risk with the costs of doing so. In considering these respective benefits and costs of risk reduction, EPA has stated it will take into account “the extent and magnitude of risk posed; the societal consequences of removing or restricting use of products; availability and potential hazards of substitutes, and impacts on industry, employment, and international trade. (Federal Register, Feb 27, 2017; see 8. Consequences of eliminating use of fluoridation chemicals.)

There is little question that neurotoxicity is a serious insult to health. In a nation besieged by neurological disorders of poorly understood etiology, both in young children and the elderly, minimizing exposures to known neurotoxic substances should be a public health priority.  Because of the massive extent of exposure to fluoridation chemicals in the U.S., even small effects on IQ will have very substantial economic consequences.

Studies have shown that even a loss of a single IQ point causes an average drop in lifetime earnings of $22,250 in current dollars. Since 200 million Americans now live in areas where water is fluoridated, and since virtually all Americans consume processed foods and beverages made with fluoridated water, any reduction in IQ from consumption of fluoride-treated water stands to have very large economic consequences.

In 2010, there were 74.2 million children under the age of 18 living in the U.S., of which we can estimate roughly 50 million were living in fluoridated areas. If we apply Wang’s dose-response data and assume that these 50 million children consumed between 0.5 to 1 liters of fluoridated water per day during childhood, fluoridation would have caused a loss of between 62.5 to 125 million IQ points, resulting in a total loss in lifetime earnings of between $13.9 to 27.8 trillion for this generation.
