New, Large Study: Eating Lots of Cheese and Dairy Products Does Not Cause Heart Disease

Nothing new for many of our readers, but we have been led astray about the dangers of milk and dairy products. Put the blame on our public health authorities and the USDA dietary guidelines—a deceptive marketing campaign for the multinational food corporations carried out by doctors and dieticians. Although a long-term study just released shows eating lots of dairy has nothing to do with heart attacks, you can be sure it will not change the advertisements and doctor’s advice to eat low-fat or non-fat dairy products and get on a statin drug. As with all the other studies, it will be suppressed as it opposes the goals of the food and medical industries. Continue reading

New Study: ADHD Mostly Caused by Food?

Tonight’s post is by Kristin Wartman. She contributed another article for the Journal recently helping to settle the Big Fat Debate.  Kristin is a food writer living in Brooklyn. She has a Masters in Literature from UC Santa Cruz and is a Certified Nutrition Educator. She is interested in the intersections of food, health, politics, and culture. You can read more of her writing at kristinwartman.wordpress.com. I was happy to score this one today since foods do play a major role in ADHD—over 60% of children with ADHD can recovery through special dietary guidelines.–Augie

ADHD: It’s the food, stupid

by Kristin Wartman

Over 5 million children ages four to 17 have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the United States, and close to 3 million of those children take medication for their symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control. But a new study reported in The Lancet last month found that with a restricted diet alone, many children experienced a significant reduction in symptoms. The study’s lead author, Dr. Lidy Pelsser of the ADHD Research Center in the Netherlands, said in an interview with NPR, “The teachers thought it was so strange that the diet would change the behavior of the child as thoroughly as they saw it. It was a miracle, the teachers said.” Continue reading

Swine Swindle Flu

by David Michael

As previously estimated, about 3500 pre-born babies have died following last year’s swine swindle flu vaccinations of pregnant women in the U.S. alone. Those surviving, I am estimating more than 35,000 have been seriously injured– some with lifelong disabilities including neurological and autism–and as many as 100,000 with milder disorders. (These are my SWAGs–scientific wild-ass estimates. When someone dies from vaccine, or is severally injured–it is a sound and logical extension that far more are impacted– just as in auto crashes). Soon, the Journal will release a new studies–showing the the Aluminum in the jabs are much more dangerous than the Mercury– partly because of synergistic reactions with Fluoride in city water (and its aluminum), increasing the toxicity. This will be presented by David Michael and Dr. Sylvia Onusik; it will include an audio interview with Dr. David Ayoub with Dr. Mercola and Michael’s interview with Dr. Ayoub on the Aluminum toxicity–including effects when directly injected and from breast breast cancer linked aluminum-ized underarm deodorants.

Warning Issued for Infant Formula: Fluoridated City Water Damages Teeth . . . Possibly Brains, Thyroid

In this continuing series on fluoride poisoning, we have a startling announcement from the Fluoride Action Network. I had written earlier that the 2006 ADA warning of the dangers of reconstituting infant formula with fluoridated city water. This statement can and should be a major key to unlock their sacred secret about fluoride toxicity for the still-thinking general public. The fact that ADA has not conducted a public awareness campaign about this in four years should raise serious questions concerning their motives and professional ethics. Rather, they continue to push for extremely high levels of fluoride applications in the form of dental treatments and pills in the schools and in mouthwashes for everyone. Might the fluoride doses react with the aluminum in vaccinations, water and aluminum pans increase the synergistic toxicity? Get the F Out!–Augie

Parents Should be Warned: Fluoridated Water is Not Recommended for Infants

New study confirms bottle-fed babies are overexposed to fluoride

NEW YORK, Oct 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A new study confirms infants fed formula reconstituted with fluoridated water are at greater risk of developing discolored teeth (dental fluorosis). (1)  The American Dental Association (ADA) warned dentists about this in 2006 but has done little or nothing to inform the nearly 200 million Americans who live in communities with fluoridated drinking water.

The study by Levy et al., a Journal of the American Dental Association cover story (October 2010), confirms Levy’s earlier studies, which show “[F]luoride intakes during each of the first 4 years were individually significantly related to fluorosis on maxillary central incisors, with the first year most important,” and that “[I]nfant formulas reconstituted with higher fluoride water can provide 100 to 200 times more fluoride than breastmilk, or cow’s milk.” (2, 3)

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 32% of American children have dental fluorosis, an increase of 23% from the 1980s. (4)  Black and Hispanic populations have even higher rates. Dental fluorosis is a visible sign that a child was overexposed to fluoride.  Pictures of fluorosis: http://www.fluoridealert.org/health/teeth/fluorosis/moderate-severe.html

“The message from Dr. Levy’s work is loud and clear: Don’t give babies fluoridated water,” says  Paul Connett, PhD, Executive Director, Fluoride Action Network (FAN).  “Unfortunately the ADA has known about these risks for more than four years. Researchers are telling dentists; but dentists are not telling parents.”

This and other little-known adverse fluoride health effects led Connett to co-author, “The Case Against Fluoride: How Hazardous Waste Ended Up in Our Drinking Water and the Bad Science and Powerful Politics that Keep it There,” with James Beck, MD, PhD, professor emeritus of medical physics, University of Alberta  and Spedding Micklem, DPhil, professor emeritus at Edinburgh University.

A recent review in The Lancet describes fluoride as “an emerging neurotoxic substance” that may damage the developing brain. The National Research Council (NRC) has identified fluoride as an “endocrine disrupter” that may impair thyroid function. A recent Harvard University study links fluoride to bone cancer.

“Approximately half of the newborns and infants I see in practice are fed formula reconstituted with fluoridated water, which I find alarming since the blood-brain barrier is not even developed until 6 months of age, placing these young infants at risk for neurotoxic effects that can be severe and permanent,” says Dr. Yolanda Whyte, a pediatrician in Georgia. “Parents should be warned not to give fluoridated water to babies and children, and they should know that fluoride is also present in juice and other water-reconstituted beverages.  I diagnose dental fluorosis on average 5 times daily, but fluoride doesn’t only affect teeth, it can potentially affect the brain and nervous system, kidneys, bones, and other tissues in young children during their critical stages of organ development.  A public awareness campaign is urgently needed.”

FAN will launch a campaign in November to urge water companies and public-health officials to inform parents that fluoridated water should not be mixed into infant formula.  “If the ADA and CDC won’t educate parents, then FAN will,” said Connett.

FAN  is the leading science and advocacy group focused on health issues surrounding fluoride in water, food, air, pesticides, and industrial exposures. Dr. Connett was an invited presenter at the initial meeting of the NRC panel and FAN researchers submitted extensive scientific information throughout the panel’s proceedings.   Visit: www.fluoridealert.org

Exploring Dietary Intervention for Special Needs

By Mary Hernandez, CHC

Seeing is believing” became my life-changing motto seven years ago when my son Luis had a dramatic “awakening” as the result of dietary intervention for autism. “It’s like a light bulb went off in his brain,” declared his pre-school teacher excitedly.

The night before, nine days into a strict gluten free/casein free diet, Luis, at age 4 years and 3 months, had called me “Mommy,” responded “Yes,” and made significant eye contact for the first time since his regression into autism two and a half years prior. Tears flooded down my cheeks as my little boy, who only had five words of spontaneous speech, and on-again, off-again echolalia (repeating words with no indication of comprehension), suddenly was speaking to me in sentences.

Luis’s sudden surge in verbal competence and relatedness transformed me from dietary skeptic to proselytizer overnight. Thus began my own passionate plunge into the study of nutrition’s impact on children with learning disabilities, diabetes, ADHD, ADD, allergies, asthma and autoimmune disorders, epilepsy and other special needs as well as autistic spectrum disorders. In the seven years since that miraculous day, I guided many other families toward improvements for their children – nourishing brain function by removing foods that harm and adding in nutrients their bodies and minds were craving.

Reversal of Autism and Neurological Disorders (New Video)

I am encouraging my readers to view this new short video on the potential for recovery from autism. I will be writing more on autism recovery research, nutritional intervention and other treatments and therapies in the coming weeks.–Augie

The producer writes: “Autism Yesterday is a documentary film that explores an emerging truth many parents are discovering: Autism is a reversible condition through a process known as “biomedical intervention”. Through the eyes of five families and their recovering children, Autism Yesterday chronicles heart-wrenching stories of despair, hope, and recovery. This 30-minute documentary shares the remarkable story of children recovering from autism — perhaps the most important health issue of our time.”

Russian autistic boy from epidemic after more vaccinations were introduced, as in China.

Raine Saunders, a Journal correspondent from Boise, brought this video to my attention yesterday—as well as Part 1 of Preventing Autism and Other Disorders. This article addresses pre-conception, pre-natal and post-natal tips to make a healthy baby. These tips are also good for anyone—oh, except for the breastfeeding. Her very complete article will be posted Friday, so be sure to subscribe to keep up on the autism reversal and recovery mission.

Studies: Junk Food Causing Birth Defects

A recent study out of Georgetown University Medical Center has concluded that what you eat can affect your children’s and grandchildren’s health, even if they eat healthy themselves. Sonia de Assis and her colleagues observed that rats fed Omega-6 fatty, unhealthy food pass on an increased cancer risk to their children and grandchildren. Omega-6 fats are found in cheap, industrial oils such as soy, vegetable and corn oil.

The study results were presented at this year’s American Association for Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., and illustrates that a fatty diet can actually contribute to “epigenetic” DNA modifications, which are inherited changes in DNA patterns. Essentially, one’s offspring can inherit DNA changes caused by their parents’ unhealthy diets and other environmental factors.

The story at msnbc states: If a person’s parents or grandparents ate a diet rich in processed, chemical-laden foods throughout their lives, then the DNA changes that likely occurred in their bodies may be passed down to their children. Even if they themselves didn’t develop cancer, the children will be more likely to develop it, based on the findings of the study. Continue reading

Get the F Out!– Fluoride: Poisoning the Children? –PART 2

In Part 1, Dr. Sylvia Onusic provided information on the school fluoride mouth rinse programs along with much data and references on oral hygiene products and other sources of fluoride poisoning. Part 2 covers a dangerous tooth sealant program for schoolchildren as well as some other details that should be brought forth.

Once again we are most pleased to have David Michael as a guest writer on the topic of fluoride overdose. David Michael has spent four decades in the environmental profession in Michael’s experience with hazardous compounds in water, waste and air include monitoring and control and treatment. He has worked for EPA as a regulator and has worked for major oil and tire companies, and many organizations such as Toyota, USPS, USAF as a consultant, publisher and educator. David is a chemical engineer with an environmental specialty and is an advocate for natural food and health freedom.–Augie

FLUORIDE ALERT: Slowly Poisoning the Children? –PART 2

by David Michael

Fluorine and many of it fluoride compounds are some of the most toxic and reactive substances known to man. It is legally an extremely hazardous material and as a waste is considered a toxic waste by EPA. It is a poison. But lo and behold, when placed in the mouth of babies and children, all of a sudden the poison is in the top 10 list medical miracles of the 20th century, the mantra of public health authorities.

Fifteen European countries have banned water fluoridation due to known health effects. Can you find one study that shows water fluoridation is effective against cavities?

State and local departments of health are asking kids to rinse each week with these toxic compounds yet can (and have) shut down a KoolAid or lemonade stand at a farmers market for lack of a $200 license for the summer (to protect public health). Continue reading

Get the F Out! –Fluoride: Slowly Poisoning the Children? –Part 1

Despite volumes of research and reports on serious health effects from fluoride toxicity and overload in children,  the Ohio Department of Health (and other states) has restarted programs in schools to have children rinse with fluoride and have teeth sealed with fluoride BPA-containing materials. They are  disposing of the EPA-designated toxic wastes in the trash, and drinking the school’s fluoridated water at the fountain, all without prescription or medical supervision and prescreening. As a result of this and more, children’s teeth are permanently stained and deformed. . . and worse.

 

Sylvia Onusic just returned from a national conference on fluoride sponsored by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), www.fluoridealert.org,  and we are pleased to have her as a guest writer on this shocking original and exclusive expose on fluoride poisoning and overload in children. This article focuses on fluoride rinses conducted in schools and was prompted by Ohio’s fluoride rinse and sealant program now increasing rapidly—and in many other states as well. You will want to spread this article around and also take note on the ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN at the end of the article. David Michael, a Journal correspondent, will present more on this subject later this week.–Augie

Fluoride Rinse Program Instituted in Ohio Schools

by Sylvia P. Onusic, PhD

Our kids are getting too much fluoride. It’s here, it’s there, it’s everywhere!  You might think, if a little is good, more is better. Not in the case of fluoride, which has no nutritional value in the human diet and is considered an extremely hazardous material which requires, by law, special transportation and disposal. Fluorine is the element, and all compounds of fluorine are called fluorides. Calcium fluoride occurs in nature but it is not calcium fluoride that is put into toothpaste, mouth rinse, drinking water, and other products. The fluoride added to US drinking water is considered a hazardous waste by EPA. Now it is purchased from China.  Remember the melamine in baby formula, the tainted dog food, the childrens’ toys and jewelry?

Before the 1950’s, fluoride was considered a poison by the American Dental Association and American Medical Association.  But after World War II, the American medical community flip- flopped, like some politicians, on their opinion of fluoride. In the 1950’s the American Public Health Service hired Edward Bernays, the grandson of Sigmund Freud, to sell fluoride to the American Public. He had previously done so with cigarettes, advertising that the best MD’s smoke Camels. After one study, which was not completed at Grand Rapids, Michigan, the US Public Health Service pronounced fluorides great for preventing cavities.  Since then fluoride chemicals have slowly made their way into many facets of our lives, our water, drugs, pesticides, toothpaste, mouth rinse, dental floss, and food products.
