I've been aware of the "fluoride connection" for quite a few years now. I ran across this article this morning, which pretty well summarizes the issue. Click the link to read it in its entirety. Here's a quick quote: "Mr. Dickinson reveals that, "At the end of the Second World War, the United States Government sent Charles Elliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farven chemical plants in Germany. While there, he was told by German chemists of a scheme which had been worked out by them during the war and adopted by the German General Staff. This scheme was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water. In this scheme, sodium fluoride will in time reduce an individual's power to resist domination by slowly poisoning and narcotising a certain area of the brain, and will thus make him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. Both the Germans and the Russians added fluoride to the drinking water of prisoners of war to make them stupid and docile."
If you think for a New York minute that fluoride is beneficial to you, you really should wonder whether the fluoride has already worked all too well. Ignorance can be fixed. Stupid is forever.
"According to Chemical Engineering News in 1988, each year in the United States, 80,000 tons of hydrofluosilicic acid, 60,000 tons of sodium silicofluoride and 3,000 tons of sodium fluorides are put into public water supplies (Chemical Engineering News, Vol 66, August 1, 1988, pg. 39). In view of all known research, it would be safe and accurate to rephrase the previous sentence and say that each year the United States Government allows 143,000 tons of fluoride products to be added to public water supplies in order to numb, disempower, and render docile a large percentage of the population. Present estimates in 1995 run about 200,000 tons annually. Now, why on earth would any oligarchic group (a small group) want to do this to tens of millions of people, deliberately and knowingly?
"All of these fluoride chemicals are byproducts of the aluminum and chemical fertilization industries that are considered to be hazardous wastes by the EPA."
The Deadly Difference
FDA regulations require that products that contain MSG in its "monosodium glutamate" form must be labeled with the words, "monosodium glutamate." Similarly, FDA regulations require that products that contain MSG in its HPP (hydrolyzed protein product) forms must be labeled with their individual unique "common or usual names." However, the FDA does not require, and has refused to require, that the MSG in products that contain any source of MSG be identified. The rationale given by the FDA for this refusal is that FDA code does not require that constituents of an ingredient be disclosed to the consumer. The MSG in hydrolyzed vegetable protein, autolyzed yeast, sodium caseinate, etc., is considered, by the FDA, to be a constituent, and therefore does not need to be disclosed. Thus, very often, nothing on the label of a product containing MSG reveals that the product contains MSG.
The FDA goes even farther in allowing MSG to be "hidden," even more surreptitiously, in food. When sugar is added to a spice package, the addition of the sugar must be disclosed. But when many MSG-containing ingredients are added to "flavor," "flavoring," "natural flavoring," "stock," or "broth," not even the "common or usual names" of those particular MSG-containing ingredients need to be disclosed.
Finally, the FDA allows the inclusion of MSG produced during product processing to be totally undisclosed. MSG can be produced during processing if protease enzymes in the presence of any form of protein are included in an ingredient/product. Under certain conditions, if a product contains protein, the addition of protease enzymes during processing will produce MSG in the end product of the food being packaged or manufactured.
It is extremely important to the glutamate industry that consumers should believe that processed free glutamic acid (MSG) is identical to the glutamic acid in intact protein and in higher organisms (like the human body).
The glutamate industry continues to deny that exposure to free glutamic acid found in processed food (MSG) causes adverse reactions including hives, asthma, seizures, and migraine headache; causes brain damage, learning disorders, and endocrine disturbances; and is relevant to diverse diseases of the central nervous system such as addiction, stroke, epilepsy, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, and degenerative disorders such as ALS, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease.
Central to their argument is the lie that the processed free glutamic acid used in processed food and in pesticide and fertilizer products is identical to the glutamic acid found in unprocessed, unadulterated food and in the human body. Central to the success of their argument is the fact that this glutamate industry lie has never been challenged by a legislator, agency of the US government, or the Courts. When sued by those who have legitimate claims for damages caused by MSG, perpetrators of the lie settle out of court and leave no public record. Legislators and the Courts defer to the FDA, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the FDA, EPA, and USDA refuse to respond or simply lie.
Most of the glutamic acid with which consumers come in contact is found in protein where it is connected to (or bound to) other amino acids in long chains. There are two forms of glutamic acid found in nature: L-glutamic acid and D-glutamic acid. When glutamic acid is found in protein it is referred to as bound glutamic acid. The glutamic acid found in protein is L-glutamic acid, only.
Eating protein (which will contain bound glutamic acid that is L-glutamic acid, only) does not cause either brain damage or adverse reactions.
Glutamic acid outside of protein is referred to as free glutamic acid. Although they may turn out to be artifacts of measurement, at the present time, it would appear that there may be small amounts of free glutamic acid found in some food consumed by humans. That free glutamic acid would have been associated with unprocessed, unadulterated, and/or unfermented protein in the plants and animals (all higher organisms) used as human food. The glutamic acid found in higher organisms, but outside of protein, is always in the same form as the glutamic acid found in protein, i.e., it is L-glutamic acid, only.
The second form of glutamic acid, i.e., D-glutamic acid, is not found naturally in higher organisms. It is found naturally only in the cell walls of certain bacteria.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, industrialists began to manufacture free glutamic acid. Manufactured/processed free glutamic acid (MSG) always contains D-glutamic acid, pyroglutamic acid, and various other contaminants in addition to L-glutamic acid. Manufactured/processed free glutamic acid (MSG) causes brain lesions and neuroendocrine disorders in laboratory animals. Manufactured/processed free glutamic acid (MSG) also causes adverse reactions which include skin rash, tachycardia, migraine headache, depression, and seizures in humans.
MSG-sensitive consumers generally refer to all forms of processed free glutamic acid as MSG. Consumers react to all processed free glutamic acid in the same way they react to the processed free glutamic acid in the flavor enhancer called "monosodium glutamate," provided, of course, that they ingest amounts of processed free glutamic acid (MSG) that exceed their tolerance levels for MSG.
It appears that genetically engineered bacteria are being used to make MSG.
Also, the enzymes used to produce MSG during processing of food products (such as dairy products?) may be pork enzymes. This MSG is not listed on the label. (I've had some pretty bad headaches from eating ice cream and yogurt which had no MSG-containing ingredients listed on the label.
How is MSG manufactured?
How do we know that MSG causes brain damage and neuroendocrine disorders?
How do we know that MSG causes adverse reactions?
You may find it meaningful to know that glutamate receptors, which were once thought to be present only in the central nervous system, have recently been found in the mouth, lungs, intestines, muscle, and other "peripheral" locations.
IF MSG IS SO HARMFUL, WHY IS IT HIDDEN? (Still think Big Brother is looking out for your best interests?)
Here's another great article. Amazing what you can do with a cell phone these days, eh? Do yourself a favor and read the entire article, not just the quote below. Enjoy it with a cool glass of fluoridated water.
"The missing link in the vote fraud investigation has been found. The November 1996 issue of Relevance Magazine reveals that two-way hidden modems are being built into the ever growing number of computerized optical scanner/direct recording voting machines in use all across the country from New England to California.
"These ostensibly independent voting machines are each driven by its own mini-computer. For example, the citizen, immediately after voting, feeds his ballot through an optical scanner which "reads" the vote and allegedly records the results immediately. Right after the polls close, a precinct worker obtains the cumulative "results" from that polling place by pushing a button which causes the mini-computer to issue a printed sheet.
"How can tens of thousands of these independent voting machines in tens of thousands of separate locations possibly be manipulated without involving tens of thousands of people?....The bombshell from O'Halloran's article is that these hidden modems are accessible by remote cell phone technology. In other words, these voting machines can be accessed and manipulated from a central super computer without a phone line connected to the wall, and without the local precinct workers knowing that anything is happening at all.
"According to Dr. O'Halloran, "Of course, when the same company that writes the source code, also designs the internal modem, the possibilities are endless for accessing the computer either before, during or after the election to alter, or at least interrogate the computer's vote count. It raises the specter of a remote high-speed, vote rigging computer automatically and surreptitiously contacting, querying and rapidly adjusting the votes inside many precincts and/or central counting machines nationwide."
"Dr. O'Halloran verified his bombshell findings from the following sources: (1) Global Election Systems which makes the popular Accu-vote optical scanner; (2) the web site (www.mrcp.com) of the largest supplier of computer voting systems in the USA, Business Records Corporation (BRC); (3) PJ Lyon, 25 year computer veteran with BRC at Berkeley who maintains the BRCs source code; (4) Penelope Bonsall, long standing spokes person for the FEC; and (5) the Clerk's Office of Birmingham, Michigan."
Quote of the day:
If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, and give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses;
And the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they do now, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains around the necks of our fellow sufferers;
And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for a second, that second for a third, and so on 'til the bulk of the society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering...
And the forehorse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.
