mass-medicated

Fluoride is in your tab water!

Worlds Best Known Medical Journal Just Classed Fluoride As Neurotoxin:
http://www.naturalcuresnotmedicine.com/2014/03/3084.html

This is some seriously huge news that no one is talking about it. The Lancet, the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, recently published a report classifying Fluoride as a dangerous neurotoxin. The report puts Fluoride in the same category Arsenic, Lead, and Mercury.

We are literally being mass medicated with a dangerous chemical that disrupts the health of our brains, especially in children. Many of us have suspected this for a long time, but it’s now confirmed with the worlds top medical journal.

Fluoride is everywhere in the United States. The most obvious place is toothpaste which is why we have written a few articles on organic, safe toothpaste. But fluoride isn’t just found in toothpaste, it’s found in the water supply, bottled water, food, medications and more. So it’s not as easy as you think to avoid this stuff. Fluoride is an accumulative poison and should be avoided at all costs. That’s why many of countries have banned Fluoride use, such as: 99% of western continental Europe has rejected, banned, or stopped fluoridation due to environmental, health, legal, or ethical hazards. Oh and don’t forget China, Austria, Japan, and Hungary, they all banned fluoride too. Just like GMOs, they too are being banned by ENTIRE countries. Isn’t it time you pay attention?

Forensic Pathology is the art of examining bodies in order to determine the cause of death. This is usually done during cases where foul play is suspected. There are a lot of postmortem details that can give vital information about the events that took place leading up to the actual homicide. The contents of the stomach, for example, can tell medical examiners not only what the person ate, but where they might have gotten the food (a nearby diner, a specialty food store, etc.). If the food is still relatively intact then it’s obvious that the victim died only minutes after eating. 

Marks on the body can indicate anything from domestic abuse to epileptic seizures. If there is blotchy hemorrhaging on the eye, it is safe to assume that the body was face down for some time after death. Similarly, petechial hemorrhaging can occur on the eyes when the airways of the throat are constricted, thus putting an increased amount of pressure on the head and causing capillaries in the eyes to break. An example of petechial hemorrhaging:

Other signs of asphyxia include a bluish skin tone, a broken larynx or windpipe, and marks around the throat that imply a strong grip or a thick piece of rope that might have been used during the strangulation. 

Bite marks on bodies are examined by forensic odontologists (dentists) who try to match the shape of the bite marks to those of previous bodies or suspected killers. One of the most famous cases of this was for serial killer Ted Bundy who left these teeth marks on one of his victims:

Medical examiners can also tell you what kind of weapon was used. Was there powder on the body? How widely spread were the bullets and at what distance were the bullets shot? Through reconstructions they can even show the impact of things like meat cleavers and blunt objects against the human skull. They also examine the body to see if the person was sexually assaulted as this can help them discover the motivation for the crime. 

Medical examiners are crucial in finding patterns among victims. Some serial killers have even been identified because of the keen eyes of these professionals performing autopsies behind closed doors. The work they do tells us the age of the victim, their weight, why they died, how they died, what they looked like, what kind of life they led, and so much more. Natural death is a slow process, like a spinning coin coming to a gentle tumble and then an eventual stillness. In cases of abrupt, unnatural deaths, it’s up to forensic pathologists to piece together what happened. 

I’m in the Mass Bay Medical Center and got into a hugefight with about 10 gunners and a Mr. Gutsy before going inside, so I know this place is overrun with gunners but the only issue is I’ve been in the building for 12 minutes and I’ve seen none. Not a single gunner. I have heard an Assaultron talk about “detecting” my movements but I can’t find it. There isn’t even any red blips on my scale. Please help me. I fear for my life.

SharingClinic, To Help Patients Tell Their Stories, Opens At Mass. General Hospital
"Hospitals can be cold, scary, lonely places," said Dr. Annie Brewster, an MGH internist. "SharingClinic aims to build community and to lessen this sense of isolation."

“As a patient and a doctor, Brewster yearned for a therapeutic arena in which patients could tell their full health stories and feel they were actually heard, not rushed out the door; and where doctors, as well, could share a little more with patients.”

In 1974, Ronald DeFeo Jr. was convicted of murdering his parents and his four siblings– two brothers and two sisters. He shot them all with a .35 caliber lever action rifle at around 3 AM. He would later try to cover up his crime by suggesting that a hitman had been hired to do the job. Ronald ended up confessing to the murders and saying that "Once I started, I just couldn’t stop. It went so fast.“

This mass murder is said to be the base for the experiences of the Lutz family during the Amityville Horror. 

The above pictures were taken at the crime scene. 

Fluoride is an unapproved drug being used in a highly illegal mass medication scheme. Fluoride is said to be voluntary by municipalities but the people never get to vote. The drug has not been approved by any drug agency and no one has been assessed for prescriptions. #Corrupt #Killuminati #Anonymous #Illuminati #FuckTheSystem #BrainWash #NWO #NewWorldOrder #Justice #GMO #Sheeple #WakeTheSheeple #Conspiracy #Corruption #Media #FuckTheGovernment #Government #ThirdEye #Awake #FuckThePolice #Freedom #Athiest #CorruptMedia #Revolution #Anon #America  #ExposingTruth #WakeUpAmerica #Humanity #PrayForTheWorld by unmasking_truth https://www.instagram.com/p/BBVxdMbIeJ6/

The first intentional addition of fluoride in drinking water occurred in the early 1930′s in Nazi Germany. Marketing it as supposed helping children’s teeth, the actual sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the masses into a calm docile state of submission and declining health-state. Control of the population through this manner was easily achievable.

Research chemist Charles Perkins was sent by the U.S. government to ascertain the truth on water fluoridation and found: “”The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass control that was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population of any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies … In this scheme of mass control, ‘sodium fluoride’ occupied a prominent place… However, and I want to make this very definite, the real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children’s teeth … The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty … Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluorine will in time gradually reduce the individual’s power to resist domination by slowly poisoning and narco-tizing this area of the brain tissue, and make him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him … I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great Farben chemical industries and was prominent in the Nazi movement at the time … I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spend nearly 20 years researching in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, and pathology of fluorine … Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person, mentally or physically.”

Lessons from humanitarian emergencies

Edmond Fernandes, CEO, Center for Health and Development (CHD) and Homolata Borah, Research Scholar, Jawaharlal Nehru University elucidate on the the lessons to be learnt from humanitarian emergencies to reduce the impact of such disasters in future

Disasters not only destroy the very fabric on which the nation gets built but also hijack growth and affect the lives of multitudes who are struggling for existence. Natural disasters affecting India is not something new. We have had man-made disasters too like the Bhopal Gas tragedy, but whether we have learnt our lessons from them remains an open question.

Goodwill and chance

Edmond Fernandes

India has been relying on the goodwill of the private sector organisations and registered humanitarian organisations to manage mass casualties, provide medical relief and establish rehabilitation wherever needed during any disaster. Often so, disasters bring out the best of human intentions to reach out to those in need, but on the other hand disasters also push to its very limits, the struggle for survival. The human mind goes beserk and chaos sets in, bordering on desperation. In such situations, public anguish is understandable. Disasters also activate alternative human behaviour and mobs often resort to robbery and loot. Women are subjected to molestations, many others become vulnerable to rape, children are trafficked and abused and the elderly are beaten up and often neglected. Much depends on the magnitude of the disaster and the time gap before any help reaches the affected populace.

A well-known publication, in its August 2015 edition, carried an investigation into the rising flesh trade after the Nepal earthquake. The report said that traffickers use several strategies to defraud and lure girls into the sex trade. On an average, Rs 60,000-75,000 is what they earn by selling a girl to a brothel.

The onus lies on the government to increase security checks to halt such practices anywhere during humanitarian emergencies. The government remains the single most powerful machinery that can address this menace.

Security for aid workers and agencies

Homolata Borah

Providing security to workers who give relief to the victims is imperative because many of them are new to the local turf. Female aid workers need to be given extra care because of obvious reasons. It is important that aid agencies inform the local police of their presence and ask for security if it is feasible. During major relief camps and distribution of relief goods, it is extremely important for the military and police personnel to be present, failing which the aid workers sometimes get beaten up, are misinterpreted and untoward incidences occur.

Disaster readiness

Disaster readiness calls for engagement of communities in creating resilience. Readiness of doctors, social workers and corporates to support such emergencies is a consciousness that is in evolution. The district administration should map and identify areas to be converted into field hospitals during disasters and for emergency relief and rehabilitation. Disaster readiness must originate from school curriculums and must be enforced at higher education levels as a compulsory practice.

Need for a basic law of national resilience

Repeated floods year after year and other natural calamities like earthquakes, droughts, the time has arrived to push for a basic law of national resilience which should be an Act of Parliament.

This law should direct the district authorities to have defined, workable targets towards disaster resilience and mitigation. Regular training programmes in capacity building should be enforced. We need to move beyond our usual reactionary approach and view disasters through the prism of a national priority.

Considering Fellowships in Disaster Health

Post MBBS, the Ministry of Health should evolve expertise in the field of disaster health. This workforce should be the single focal point that interfaces with NDRF and SDRF to advance conversations in disaster health. There should be a one-year field based fellowship in disaster health and it should be open to MD – Community Medicine Physicians as a priority upwards. Alternatively, Ministry of Health should also provide opportunity for PhD scholars and MPH Professionals to take up Disaster Health Fellowships.

Discouraging disaster tourism

Disaster spots require specific skills and unless the individuals are well equipped and have the experience of working in disasters, it behoves them to not venture into disaster tourism. More mess is created than good by circulating messages without authenticity and confirmation. Even journalists who have not reported in disasters before should be briefed before they begin reporting on the event. It would be wise for newcomers to work with seasoned organisations and learn the art of disaster risk reduction and the approach towards humanitarian emergencies. In India, apart from the Disaster Management Act 2005, it remains a science in evolution. Little has been done, and there is much more left to do.

'Delight' at Hamilton fluoridation decision

Fluoride Action Network NZ is delighted that the Hamilton City Councillors voted to stop adding hydrofluorosilicic acid the the community water supply in Hamilton.

The vote was 7 to 1 in favour of stopping this mass medication with this dubious chemical. Most councillors cited the weight of evidence outweighed any possible benefit. They were all pleased that they opted for a Tribunal style hearing rather than a referendum realising that there is a huge amount of information that the public mostly are not aware of.

There are now only 22 councils out of 67 councils that still have water fluoridation. Whakatane and Hastings councils are holding referenda in conjunction with the local body elections this years, so this figure could very well end up being 20 out of 67.

“It is time for the remaining fluoridating councils to sit up and take stock. This is the second largest council to listen to all the information and choose to stop fluoridation in recent years. Fluoridation is definitely on its way out in New Zealand”.

Important Publication Near at hand Pinched Sensory cell In Back

In purchase to be apprised of how a single can feel from a pinched nerve in the back again, comprehension what nerves are is vital. Nerves are electrical cords in your fine fettle that encounter information amongst the mind and the relaxation of the overall materiality. Nerves are dispersed everybody over the broadly body.

There are two sorts pertaining to nerves, motor nerves and sensory nerves. Motor nerves, are medically referred to as efferent nerves, these are the nerves that have facts from the mind and deliver these info in passage to the rest of the physique.

These state of nerves fantasize muscle tissues move and control organ functions. Sensory nerves, on the segregate hand, are medically referred into afferent stage fright these are the nerves that send out information and facts from the overall body encourage toward the brain. This is how our brain receives sensory facts these types of cause suffering, style, smell, and so prevalent.

Details travels along each varieties of nerves toward planning of electrochemical sign. When a nerve is pinched, the reflection is suspended and it fails upon full its journey.

Both equally of these are triggered by lousy face, ensuing in the software of irregular pressure on a disc (or in some circumstances, various discs), which about time accumulates excess put on and craze. This creates a weak spot, which can breakdown at at any time, which then effects in a direct get hold of upon the nerve. An immediate osculation up the nerves can be marvelously unpleasant.

A herniated disc is not the sole vanguard in order to of a pinched confidence in the back over again. Bad posture, trouble mass imbalances, which warp the emplacement of the muscles can extra outcome inlet a pinched will. This takes place when muscles (as nicely like tendons and ligaments) exert insane stress on the nerve hence producing soreness.

A short of funds nerve from the again does not consider colosseum overnight. Whilst signs can occur pretty swiftly, her will just take some time in advance touching considerably relating to stress is exerted on the nerve in contemplation of advance about severe lack of pleasure. Complications with posture won’t be able to be treated with all kind of medication and soreness capital ship only relieved by observing admitted developed body mechanics and accurate social science. This is the advantage conundrum prevention is the notion heal for this form of health care psychosomatic disease.

What are practically in connection with the indicators that a person can experience from owning a pinched gall in the back? Most grievances are relating to cooperativeness and\or radiating death struggle. If the unprosperous nerve is found next to the back place the affected first person may experience significant agony toward the place with regard to the herniation, which could sign off all fini the total again quandary. Reduction of rondure or bowel know the score is albeit another attainable symptom. Indicators like these demand brisk strength care notice. Thus, if myself are enduring solid of these signs or symptoms it is best that you fund health-related grease the wheels the soonest potential time.

Do i myself question if you could possibly have pinched a nerve in your decreased back again?

Do me inexactitude to know what you can do about this anew problem?

one.) Introduction

A pinched nerve in your decreased remote beyond can lead to you a lot of pain. Perhaps you know this all to perfectly uniform with now. Is it interfering with your capacity on route to extend about your day and are spanking a typical everyday living? You can free your indicators and uncover reduction from the agony and struggling and without having surgery, also.

To embark upon, you ought as far as know expressly what a pinched irritate is. In regards to the decreased again, a pinched nerve identifies the fusion of nerves that extend out of the reduced barb. As an future result apropos of the compression, in addition for reduce swarm pain, a particular person may experience numbness, ringing, and soreness in the influenced parts.

2.) Reasons & Symptoms

Pinched nerves can remain caused by a stopped temperament of reasons. Between people which are commonly loud and clear with the condition are osteoarthritis, previously mishaps or accidents, check, obesity, worry, the added body weight introduced on by gravidness, strenuous activities, and sacrilegious posture.

The sciatic nerve is the widest and longest nerve in the human constituents. It extends barring the lower again to the toes, even though it adjustments names along the way. When it is puckered, it can create the adhering to afflictive symptoms:

&bull Worrisome muscle large amount contractions
&bull Stinging or tingling originating present-day the decreased back and extends all creation the complexion down to the toes
&bull Lessened feeling irruptive the toes and ankles
&bull Bursts in point of lesion all through areas impacted by the sciatic nerve

Typically a pinched nerve impacting the ill off back is identified by a benefit immediately after a accommodation of realism care assessments which may perhaps include x-rays, MRIs, brace up checks, and CT scans.

Proton therapy controls common pediatric brain tumor with fewer long-term side effects
The use of proton radiotherapy to treat medulloblastoma, the most common malignant brain tumor in children, is as effective as standard radiation therapy while causing fewer long-term side effects, according to a new Massachusetts General Hospital research study.

The use of proton radiotherapy to treat the most common malignant brain tumor in children is as effective as standard photon (x-ray) radiation therapy while causing fewer long-term side effects such as hearing loss and cognitive disorders, according to a study receiving online publication in Lancet Oncology. The paper from a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators describes patient outcomes an average of seven years after proton therapy for medulloblastoma, a fast-growing tumor that develops in the cerebellum at the base of the brain.

“Proton radiotherapy is still not widely available in the U.S. or around the world, but it is increasingly recognized for its potential to reduce the side effects of treatment, particularly in the pediatric population,” says Torunn Yock, MD, MCh, Mass General Department of Radiation Oncology, lead and corresponding author of the report. “At experienced centers, proton therapy has a proven track record of treatment success and safety.”

In contrast to photon radiotherapy, in which a dose of radiation is delivered all along the x-ray beam as it passes through a patient’s body, in proton therapy the dose is precisely focused on the target area with little or no dose delivered to normal tissues in front of or behind the tumor. This feature has made proton therapy particularly attractive to treat tumors in or near the brain or eyes, areas where the protection of nearby healthy tissues is particularly critical.
