Mainstream media pushes malicious fluoride lie: Fluoride-free bottled water is harming children, they claim!

The mainstream media is at it again, lying to the public about fluoride. This time, the culprit is HealthDay, a “canned news” service that spits out lies and disinformation to be published by subscribing websites. Recently, HealthDay put out a story by author Alan Mozes claiming that bottled water might be harming children’s dental health because there’s no fluoride in it!

Hydraulic fracturing – What it is

Geologic formations may contain large quantities of oil or gas, but have a poor flow rate due to low permeability, or from damage or clogging of the formation during drilling. This is particularly true for tight sands, shales and coalbed methane formations. (more…)

Study Predicts Fracking Fluids Will Reach Water Supplies ‘In Just a Few Years’

‘Hydraulic fracturing for natural gas and oil may be one of the most well-documented horrors to disgrace the planet. Despite only being practiced for roughly a decade, the evidence is piling up that fracking utilizes cancer-causing chemicals, causes earthquakes, and pollutes the air with hydrocarbons such as benzene.

Government regulatory agencies have made half-hearted attempts to suggest that they actually will halt the practice, but so far the oil and gas industries have largely been left alone, even as the EPA admits that fracking causes groundwater pollution.

In fact, the USDA dropped their plan to review the environmental impact of fracking for land owners who host fracking stations. Investigative reporter, Greg Palast, discusses in the video below the wide-ranging impact of this decision, as well as alluding specifically to the potential consequence to aquifers.

For instance, a resident in Pennsylvania demonstrates in the video how his tap water is now flammable – so it appears that contaminated aquifers are already a reality.’

Your Drinking Water May be Lowering Your IQ and Giving You Cancer

water 210x145 Your Drinking Water May be Lowering Your IQ and Giving You CancerA recent study published in Environmental Health Perspectives, a publication of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, has linked fluoride consumption with a decreased IQ in children. While the media acts like this is one of a kind, this is not the first study to link fluoride to diminished IQ in children. (more…)

Breaking: Fluoride Linked to #1 Cause of Death in New Research

fluoridecardiovasculardisease 210x131 Breaking: Fluoride Linked to #1 Cause of Death in New ResearchGroundbreaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer. Sodium fluoride is currently added to the water supply of many cities worldwide, despite extreme opposition from health professionals and previous studies linking it to decreased IQ and infertility.

Aqua Horribilis

Back in March 2008, I wrote about the issue of pharmaceutical drugs in your drinking water. It wasn’t really a surprise to anyone who was actually keeping abreast of the issue as these drugs had first been detected as early as the 1970’s. But 2008 was the first time a major news source had decided to report on the story — thus bringing it the forefront of debate. Government regulators and mainstream scientists, however, were able to push the story off the radar by claiming, “Yes, there are pharmaceutical drugs in the water, but at levels so low that they present no threat to the public at large.” And unfortunately, although we had strong reason to believe the government argument wasn’t true, we had little data to support the contention. Well, now it’s been four years since that story first broke — and disappeared —  and it’s time to take another look, because now we have new data to look at. (more…)

What’s Really is in Your Tap Water

Tap Water Contamination

Ask any municipal water department if the tap water in the area is safe and you’ll get an “of course” in response. You’ll be told that the water meets all regulations for safety, meaning that contaminant levels fall under the maximum amount allowed. But here’s what you won’t hear: the Safe Water Drinking Act, which governs tap water safety, is 35 years old, and in the last 35 years, many thousands of new chemicals have been developed and released into the environment. The Safe Water Drinking Act regulates 91 chemicals, but at this point, the US uses over 60,000 chemicals, and trace amounts of at least some of those end up in the water supply, without any law in place to regulate them. And of course, not all those 60,000 unregulated chemicals are benign. In fact, according to a recent article in the New York Times, hundreds of those chemicals are known to cause cancer or other diseases. But that estimate ignores the fact that thousands more have nott yet been investigated for health consequences. To date, government scientists have evaluated only 830 of the contaminants most often found in water supplies. (more…)

Why more thyroid cancer? Fluoridated water, x-rays, and radiation are all to blame

According to a recent report in USA Today, cases of thyroid cancer have risen 6.5 percent over the past several years, and many medical experts are at a loss for explaining why this is occurring. But mainstream science is ignoring all the most obvious factors that contribute to the disease — fluoride chemicals added to drinking water; excessive medical x-rays; and radiation from cells phones, computers, naked body scanners, and nuclear disasters like Fukushima.
