Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms in children associated with fluoride exposure to pregnant moms

Fluoride Associated With ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

A recent study posted in Environmental International measured flouride in 213 pregnant women living in Mexico City. They found a higher concentration of maternal urinary fluoride was associated with more ADHD-like symptoms in school-age children.

“Our findings show that children with elevated prenatal exposure to fluoride were more likely to show symptoms of ADHD as reported by parents. Prenatal fluoride exposure was more strongly associated with inattentive behaviours and cognitive problems, but not with hyperactivity,” said Bashash (lead researcher) .

This work builds off of previous research the team published on this population demonstrating that higher levels of urine fluoride during pregnancy are associated with lower scores on tests of IQ and cognition in the school-age children.

These findings are consistent with the growing body of evidence suggesting neurotoxicity of early-life exposure to fluoride.

Cell Phones - Are they Causing Serious Harm

Cell Phones Appear to Be Causing Harm

In 2011 the World Health Organization decided use of cell phones was a probable carcinogen risk.

Most people don't seem to know this. For some reason most people do not know the additional data below either.

Cellphones are two-way microwave radios that should not be kept on the body. Look at the legal data that comes with your smart phone and you will find they warn you of this. The data is buried in your phone, so you might have to look for it. However, it is there as they are attempting to protect themselves from litigation.

Cellphone use is associated with odd types of breast cancers for women who keep cellphones in their bra.

Cellphones kept in men's pant pockets have been found to be causal for significant decreased sperm count. Studies also show damage to sperm in addition to lower sperm count.

Studies in Europe show that people who used cell phones heavily for over ten years have a doubled risk of brain cancer, and those who begin using cell phones as teenagers have a four to five times higher chance of being diagnosed with brain cancer.

If you put a mobile phone that is operating in a honey bee hive, the workers will not come back to the hive. Could the mobile phone radiation or tower radiation be affecting the bees?

Women who have higher use of cell phones during pregnancy have more miscarriages than those who have less cell phone use.

Scientists in Korea have found something called Digital Dementia in children. They report that children who are heavy technology users have brains that are underdeveloped on the right side. This has been characterized by memory loss, attention disorders, lack of eye contact, lack of empathy, and difficulty feeling or showing emotions.  As a result the Korean government is instituting programs to reduce uses and exposures especially to young children.

Other countries have laws limiting the amount of radiation that can come from towers, laws regarding cell phone use for children and in schools, laws for safe headsets etc. No laws to protect people from cell phone radiation have been passed in the United States though. 

For more data on cell phones, go to the Environmental Health Trust. I also suggest you watch Dr. Debra Davis' YouTube presentation.

Home Remedy for Childs Ingestion of Button Batteries

There has been a serious increase in children eating button batteries. There are 3000 ingestions of these tiny batteries each year in the United States. They are small enough to pop into the mouth and look like a possible candy. Unfortunately they can cause serious esophageal damage or even death. However, most parents have a common food in their pantry that will help protect the childs esophagus until they can get her/him to a health care facility. This food is honey. In recent research, honey slowed the discharge of the button battery, neutralized the increased tissue pH at the battery contact site to clinically optimal levels, and protected against deep tissue injury, the authors reported in a June 11th issue of The Larygoscope.

Serious damage such as esophageal perforation, vocal cord paralysis, and erosion into the airway or major blood vessels can occur within 2 hours of ingestion of the battery. The authors suggest using the honey for witnessed or suspected early-stage battery ingestion as soon as possible after the ingestion.

The amount of honey used in this experiment was 2 teaspoons every 10 minutes. It is meant to be used as a home remedy until the parents can get the child to a health care facility where the battery can be removed.

Some children are allergic to honey and it is suggested that children under 1 year of age do not eat honey due to concern of botulism. (Not a common occurance according to experts I have asked in the past.)

Are You a Smart Meter Guinea Pig

Health Concerns of Smart Meters

My neighborhood is putting Smart Meters on all the houses except for mine. I have to pay a monthly fee to keep my analog "Safe Meter". It is outrageous to me that I have to pay to keep my old meter, but concern for my health and privacy are the reasons I am willing to do it. I suggest before you become a guinea pig in this experiment on human health, that you look a little bit closer at what you are inviting into your home. You are becoming a guinea pig to save the utility company money as they no longer have to hire people to read the meters. The smart meter is not benefiting you in any way and the company has not researched the effect on humans. Please don't blindly allow them to effect the health and privacy of you and your family without at least doing a little investigation. I have provided places below where you can learn more about the effects of smart meters.

RF radiation is put out by the meters but additionally they can create dirty electricity or what people call electric smog by disrupting the power current in your  house. (This is constant by the way, creating new electric fields in your house.) There is a great book on dirty electricity written by Dr. Milham that you should read. It is a real eye opener. Also see the interview of Louis Donovan to see how a smart meter and dirty electricity effected someone with a pace maker.

RF radiation is classified as a 2B carcinogen by the World Health Organization.

The American Board of Environmental Medicine wrote a letter to the Utilities Commission of the State of California that you might want to read at this link. In the letter they state that the existing FCC guidelines for RF safety being used to justify installation of so called “smart meters” look only at thermal tissue damage and this is inadequate since many modern studies show metabolic and genomic damage from RF and ELF exposures below the level of intensity which heats tissues. There are medical and biological effects from RF and ELF at these lower energy densities. There is accumulation over time which is also not considered but should be since there is chronic exposure over time from the “smart meters”. Here is a two minute video by a public health physician on smart meters.

There are many websites that examine damage from various electromagnetic energies. Here is one that you can get some further information regarding "smart meters".  You will find a long list of "smart meter" data on this site from health symptoms people have had to problems with the meters catching fire or exploding.

As far as the smart meter surveillance, the utility companies are supplying data about households to the government and other paying parties. California utility companies  have admitted they are providing smart meter data to the government and third parties. I suggest you watch this video

If you are interested in opting out of a smart meter and you have Pacific Power you can go to this page and scroll to the bottom to read about opting out of the smart meter.
