One of the things that inspired Mike to write his paper ‘Why Science is Destroying our World’ was the fact that his research repeatedly showed how scientists were pushed into finding the outcomes that corporations required for their business purposes; and what’s more, those who spoke up with bad news were often fired.
Mike was puzzled by this, after all, they were just doing their jobs and raising very significant public safety issues.
The extract below from the fluoride deception is well worth watching in full, but for those who wish to focus on the issue of people expressing opposition to fluoride being unreasonably attacked should watch from 20.00.
Firstly, Dr George Walmot, a leading doctor who warned early on of the risk of smoking (and was of course ridiculed), tested his patients symptoms with double blind tests and discovered many of the problems were linked to lose dose fluoride. He was subsequently shunned by his profession.
Secondly, at 22.00 hear about how in the 1990’s the Senior EPA Toxicologist Dr William Marcus reviewed cancer tests for fluoride on lab animals and concluded that every single indicator had been falsely discounted. The verdict should have unequivocally said fluoride was a cancer causing carcinogen; and according to Marcus, the circumstances were very suspicious. Marcus was fired and was later reinstated after a Judge found that he was fired ‘due to his opposition to fluoridation.’
Finally, the specific subject of this Reference Link, Fluoride and IQ, see the story or Dr Phyllis Mullenix at 25.30 who was fired after mentioning that her tests showed reduced children’s IQ’s.
The extract below from the fluoride deception is well worth watching in full, but for those who wish to focus on the issue of people who simply mention risks being shunned, of Fluoride and IQ, see the story or Dr Phyllis Mullenix at 25.30 who was fired after mentioning that her tests showed reduced children’s IQ’s.
Dr Mullenix was a Leading Toxicologist at a Harvard Affiliated Research Institute and was applying a new technology to test the neurotoxicity of chemicals. Initially, when asked to test Fluoride, she said why bother, after all,
“fluoride had been used in our drinking water for years, it’s given to children, so it must be safe, right?”
She was nevertheless asked to test it and was shocked to find a correlation between low dose fluoride and hyperactivity, memory problems and reduced child IQ’s. How unjust that after stating her conclusions, she lost her funding and was effectively shunned, especially now that so many studies have confirmed the correlation between Fluoride and reduced IQ’s in children.
Doctors Walmot, Marcus and Mullenix are the kind of crusaders for health and truth that we all need, and are all part of the author dedication for The Awakening.
Back to IQ’s again, think how many children’s IQ’s have been affected because her warning was ignored. No wonder Mike was so discouraged.
Here is Ms Mullenix talking about secret documents from 1944 requesting animal experimentation to evaluate risks of fluoride that had obviously been identified back then (such testing was approved and then the approval was revoked 6 months later).
Here is further written background to all the subsequent studies showing reduced IQ’s due to elevated fluoride intake. Note the chilling quote
“After reviewing 27 of the human IQ studies, a team of Harvard scientists concluded that fluoride’s effect on the young brain should now be a “high research priority.” (Choi, et al 2012). Other reviewers have reached similar conclusions, including the prestigious National Research Council (NRC), and scientists in the Neurotoxicology Division of the Environmental Protection Agency (Mundy, et al)”
Finally, for those who actually don’t know where the fluoride comes from, this video gives some great background, and at 8.20 this video also discusses links between fluoride and lowering of child’s IQ’s. It also gives background to what is actually added to water and where it comes from.
