Mainstream Media FINALLY Discusses Dangers of Fluoride and Other Toxins

neurotoxicants - mainstrea media

Independent studies from scientists around the world have been screaming out for years about the poisons we’re exposed to on a daily basis. But those screams have largely fallen on deaf ears. The toxic substances we come in contact with in our day to day lives are slowly poisoning us, and naturopaths, homeopaths, dieticians and alternative media have all been covering it and advising us on how to avoid them for many years now.

Unfortunately most people don’t go to a naturopath or a homeopath, or even bother to look for an alternative information source to mainstream media.

Well, we’re finally in luck! Every now and again a nugget of truth makes its way into the corporate controlled media, and to the homes of millions of people around the world. Recently, CNN published a piece called “Putting the Next Generation of Brains in Danger“.

Here’s an excerpt….

“Dr. Philip Landrigan at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and Dr. Philippe Grandjean from Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, authors of the  review published Friday in The Lancet Neurology journal, say the news is so troubling they are calling for a worldwide overhaul of the regulatory process in order to protect children’s brains”.

Neurotoxicant Dangers

A neurotoxicants is a substance  that impacts brain development and can cause a number of neurodevelopmental disabilities, including  attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder  (ADHD),  autism, dyslexia and other cog

Dr. Landrigan and Dr. Grandjean have now added six more chemicals to that list.  They are: manganese,  tetrachloroethylene, a class of chemicals called polybrominated diphenyl ethers (or flame retardants), two pesticides, chlorpyrifos (widely used in agriculture) and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethanitive damage, according to the researchers.  The researchers named five toxic substances known as neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, arsenic,  polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs,  and or DDT…. and most importantly,  fluoride!

That’s right, doctors from the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the equally prestigious Harvard School of Public Health have both publicly named and shamed fluoride! Yes, fluoride is a known neurotoxicant.

So why is is still being added to our public drinking water supplies?

Alarmingly, the  Centre for Disease Control and Prevention  in the United States (known more commonly as the CDC) has listed water fluoridation as amongst their  Top Ten Great Public Health Achievements in the 20th Century. Let’s hope that CDC administrators have CNN on their web browser favourites list.

fluoride = cancer

Other Toxicants

It doesn’t stop there though. Much to my amazement, CNN actually posted another article, entitled:  7 Other Chemicals in Your Food, and also linked to it to the article I mentioned above. In it, CNN calls out yet another seven potentially harmful chemicals that are commonly put into our food; chemicals that are also found in products such as varnishes, resins, adhesives, Viagra, cosmetics, cigarette filters…. and even ground up insects.

Given how long this kind of information has been circulating in alternative news circles, it’s strange that this particular study has seen the light of day and made its way into the mainstream. Even the  tabloid newspaper  Sydney Morning Herald  picked up on it here in Australia.

Either way it’s great to see this type of research finally getting mainstream exposure.
