Dangers Of Fluoride In Your Bottled Water; Complete List of Brands to Avoid
Most Bottled Water is FILLED With Fluoride, Here’s a Complete List of Brands to Avoid.“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,”Grandjean says. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.” WATCH: Healing Matrix: Hidden Dangers of Fluoride with Mike Adams - See more at: http://bit.ly/2bolfKcAs with other fresh water supplies (e.g., spring water, lake water, river water), bottled waters have low levels of fluoride.Fresh surface water contains an average of just 0.05 ppm. To put this in perspective, artificially fluoridated water (using industrial-grade fluoride chemicals) contains 0.7 to 1.2 ppm fluoride, which is 14 to 24 times more than the average natural level.Fluoride Health ProblemsThere is a lot of controversy surrounding the presence of fluoride in public drinking water (fluoridation). For starters, before fluoride was used to fight cavities, it was (and still is) used in insecticides and rat poision.Fluorosis is a condition that wears down the enamal of the tooth, leaving behind white spots, making the teeth more vulnerable to cavities and decay. Fluorosis is a very real health condition that can effect both children and adults. More and more evidence is mounting against the use of fluoride, even in small amounts. But it doesn’t appear to be a critical issue according to the US Surgeon Generals, as the last 5 Surgeon Generals have supported the fluoridation of drinking water. Incidentally, the claimed health benefits almost always point to oral health. Fortunately, the CDC is calling for new labeling rules requiring manufacturers to list a product’s fluoride content, which we have found to be missing in some cases.What is too much Fluoride?Fluoride itself is actually required by our bodies in low doses. When consumed in high amounts, specifically the man-made fluoride that is in public drinking water, can cause problems.An estimated 5-10g of sodium fluoride can be lethal for some adults. While fluoride provides benefits to your oral health, it can also come with adverse side effects, that vary in severity depending upon the amount of fluoride consumed. Excessive consumption of fluoride can lead to gastrointestinal discomfort. This can occur with doses 15 to 20 times lower than actual lethal doses (0.2-0.3mg/kg). Fluoride in exessive amounts can also cause problems in the formation bone.Here are some bottled water brands that contain little to no fluoride:A Better WaterAgromas Natural Mineral WaterAlbertsonsAlpinaAmerican FareAmerican StarAppcoAqua FrescaAqua PannaAqua PureAquarius Natural Mineral WaterArbor SpringsArlington SpringsAquafina WaterAqua SystemsAqua VonArtesian WellsAugusta Medical – DanielsBadger WaterBesco Pure Premium Drinking WaterBIOTA Colorado Pure Spring WaterBio-2Black Berry FarmsBlue Ice Natural Mineral WaterBoney’sBORNEOBountylandBuchesCalistogaCallaway BlueCAPACascadeCentury SpringsChemungChippewa Spring WaterCiti StopClassic SelectionClearly ArcticClear Mountain Spring WaterClover Company LimitedCoachCold CountryCohutta Mountain Spring WaterCowboy SqueezeCrowne Plaza Drinking WaterCrowne Plaza Natural Mineral WaterCruel Jacks Spring WaterCrystal Mountain Spring WaterCrystal PointCrystal RidgeCrystal Spring Natural Spring WaterCulligan WaterDakota SplashDannonDeep RockDeep Rock Crystal DropDeep Rock FontenelleDeja BlueDesert QuenchEast PhilsEco QuestEliteEquatorial Natural Mineral WaterEssentia WaterEurekaEvianE WaterFamily PantryFamous Ramona WaterFlowing SpringsFood ClubFounders Square BankFresh Brands ArtesianFresh Brands Distilled WaterFresh Brands Drinking WaterFresh MarketGet-N-GoGlacier BayGlen Summit Springs WaterGlen Summit Distilled WaterGlenwood InglewoodGordon Food ServiceGreat BearGreat ValueHarvey’sH2O4UHenry’sHidden Valley Natural Mineral WaterHillcrest Distilled WaterHillcrest Drinking WaterHillcrest Spring WaterHilton PJ Natural Mineral WaterHinckley SpringsHINTHi-Sprint Drinking WaterHi-Sprint Natural Mineral WaterHog WashHon Less Natural Mineral WaterIce JamInlandIstana Natural Mineral WaterJoe MuggsJoe Ragan’s Pure WaterJunior JohnsonJust SqueezedKLGCC Natural Mineral WaterKroger Bottled Water (Reverse Osmosis)Krystal J Artesian WaterKrystal J Distilled WaterLaureLeroy Jenkins MinistriesLogansport Savings BankLowe’sMartinsMasafi Pure Natural Mineral WaterMercurio ProduceMesra Drinking WaterMesra Natural Mineral WaterMisty MountainMonadnock Mountain Spring WaterMontclairMountain EnergyMountain ForestMountain Valley Spring WaterMutiara Natural Mineral WaterNantze SpringsNew Frontier BankNiagra MistNicolet DistilledNorthern Illinois UniversityOasis Pure Drinking WaterOasis Sparkling WaterOgallala – Clear Cool WaterOUI Drinking WaterOUI Natural Mineral WaterPaigesParmer Pure H2OPatriots ChoicePelangi Natural Mineral WaterPenta Ultra Premium Purified Drinking WaterPiggly WigglyPolaris WaterPristine Natural ArtesianPurely SedonaQuick StopRain SoftRefresh Natural Mineral WaterReiser Drinking WaterRequest Foods, Inc.Rip TimeRoundy’s “Purified Water”Safeway – RefresheSam’s Wine & SpiritsSan Faustino Natural Mineral WaterSan PellegrinoSantee SpringsScheopner’s WaterSequoia SpringsScottsShamrockShop-N-CartShur-FineSilver Creek Purified WaterSilver Creek Spring WaterSky Drinking WaterSmart WaterSnow ValleySpinxStator Bros.

In this startling interview with Regina Meredith, “Health Ranger” Mike Adams shares the eye-opening truth behind fluoride and vaccines, and their toxic effects on our bodies, originally webcast on May 29, 2013.Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," is a well-known writer on topics of natural health, nutrition and reversing serious disease with the use of plant-based medicines. After spending countless hours studying the true causes of disease he has built a massive private research library and authored more than 1,500 health articles.

and here we have a rough sketch of a tiny version of an OC of mine. He was never named and because of that just goes by ‘Niiv’ as he spent his whole life being called the ‘Niiv Nium’ (meaning ‘the great sacrifice’ on the planet he grew up on)

US Army’s Secret Human Testing Experiments On The Citizens Of St Louis USA
Declassified documents show the US Army tested radioactive poisions in Secret Human Testing Experiments On The Citizens of St Louis USA. http://gaia.com/4biddenThe Manhattan-Rochester Coalition, research on the health effects of radioactive materials, and tests on vulnerable populations without consent in St. Louis, 1945--1970by Martino-Taylor, Lisa, Ph.D., UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI - COLUMBIA, 2011, 838 pages; 3515886Click & Download Document:http://gradworks.umi.com/35/15/3515886.htmlLisa Martino-Taylor is a sociologist whose life's work has been to uncover details of the Army's ultra-secret military experiments carried out in St. Louis and other cities during the 1950's and 60's."The study was secretive for reason. They didn't have volunteers stepping up and saying yeah, I'll breathe zinc cadmium sulfide with radioactive particles," said Martino-Taylor.Army archive pictures show how the tests were done in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1960's. In Texas, planes were used to drop the chemical. But in St. Louis, the Army placed chemical sprayers on buildings and station wagons.Documents confirmed that city officials were kept in the dark about the tests. The Cold War cover story was that the Army was testing smoke screens to protect cities from a Russian attack. The truth, according to Martino-Taylor was much more sinister."It was pretty shocking. The level of duplicity and secrecy. Clearly they went to great lengths to deceive people," she said.By making hundreds of Freedom of Information Act requests, she uncovered once-classified documents that confirm the spraying of zinc cadmium sulfide.Martino-Taylor says the greatest concentration was centered on the Pruitt-Igoe housing complex, just northwest of downtown St. Louis in the Carr Square neighborhood. It was home to 10,000 low income people. An estimated 70 percent she says were children under the age of 12."This was a violation of all medical ethics, all international codes, and the military's own policy at that time," said Martino-Taylor.In 1994, then-Congressman Richard Gephardt (D-St. Louis), asked the Army to open its records and explain the St. Louis testing.At the time Rep. Gephardt said, "We want to make sure nothing went on that would harm anyone, and that all the fact are out on the table."Documents released in the 90s showed the Army placed sprayers on a former Knights of Columbus building on Lindell and in Forest Park. The Army always insisted the chemical compound was safe. Martino-Taylor believes documents prove otherwise."There is a lot of evidence that shows people in St. Louis and the city, in particular minority communities, were subjected to military testing that was connected to a larger radiological weapons testing project," she said.For the first time, she links the St. Louis testing to a company called US Radium, a company notorious for lawsuits involving radioactive contamination of its workers."US radium had this reputation where they had been found legally liable for producing a radioactive powdered paint that killed many young women who painted fluorescent watch tiles," said Martino-Taylor.While the Army admits it added a florescent substance to the zinc cadmium compound, details of whether it was radioactive remains secret.Documents uncovered to date indicate the Army never conducted follow-up studies to see whether the compound caused long term health issues.In 1972, after years of crime, poverty, and decline, the government destroyed the Pruitt -Igoe housing complex.More Info: http://archive.ksdk.com/news/article/344422/3/Secret-human-testing-Victims-in-St-Louis-speak-demand-answersDISCLAIMER:This video contains copyrighted material the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner.
