Fluoride Warnings Issued by Dentists!



The IAOMT is an organization of over 800 dentists, physicians, and research professionals in more than 14 countries, and the non-profit organization has been dedicated to its mission of protecting public health since it was founded in 1984.  Since that time, the group has continually collected, examined, and reviewed studies and research articles about fluoride and other dental materials and practices.

“IAOMT and its members have been independently studying the toxicity of fluoride for decades,” Matthew Young, DDS, President of the IAOMT, explains.  “For dentistry, as an ethical profession, it is imperative to uphold the concepts of ‘do no harm.’  Fluoride has traditionally been seen as a panacea for dental disease without the knowledge of its inherent harm to the human body.  We need to seek less toxic alternatives and work to improve human health with the safest approach.”

This week, the IAOMT is officially releasing a variety of new fluoride awareness resources available for free on their website.  The materials were developed based on the group’s new Position Paper against Fluoride Use in Water, Dental Materials, and Other Products.  Hundreds of scientific studies and research articles were analyzed to create this detailed document, which includes over 500 citations supporting the potential for fluoride to cause adverse health outcomes.

The IAOMT’s official position is that given the elevated number of fluoride sources and the increased rates of fluoride intake in the American population, which have risen substantially since water fluoridation began in the 1940’s, it has become a necessity to reduce and work toward eliminating avoidable sources of fluoride exposure, including water fluoridation, fluoride-containing dental materials, and other fluoridated products.

“Ingesting synthetic fluoride, such as that added to community water, is not only ineffective at reducing tooth decay, but it also exposes our population to a number of toxins,” David Kennedy, DDS, lead author of the IAOMT Fluoride Position Paper, cautions.  “American children are already being overdosed with fluoride, as is evidenced by the increase in tooth mottling (fluorosis), which now occurs to some degree in a majority of our youth.  The National Research Council determined that many individuals are exceptionally vulnerable to the toxic effects of fluoride.  When will people realize that scientific research offers grave warnings about fluoride? Don’t we all deserve safe water?”

US GMO Potatoes Sold As Processed Food In Australia

GM potatoes, grown in the US, can now be imported and sold as processed food in Australia. Simplot, the developer of the GM potato, is a large multinational with brands.

Australian regulators don’t test, don’t require peer-reviewed studies and never refuse GM food applications
Peer-reviewed evidence of damage from eating GM dismissed by a regulator.

FSANZ have ignored scientists warnings of potential harm. The Centre for Integrated Research in Biosafety (INBI) “predicted that dsRNA (i.e. RNAi) could be transmitted to humans through food, and that dsRNA would be sufficiently resistant to cooking and normal stomach pHs to potentially be taken up by cells or circulated through blood.

GM foods are being tested on us


You are probably eating GM food every day.

Currently, GM crops including soy, corn, canola, sugar beet and cotton, are processed into ingredients that avoid labeling in Australia. The GM potato is different. It is a whole food that will contain GM DNA and protein.

Mayflower, Arkansas, Oil Spill

Under-Reported Environmental Disasters



Mayflower, Arkansas, Oil Spill

On March 29, 2013, the 65-year-old ExxonMobil Pegasus pipeline ruptured beneath a subdivision in Mayflower, Arkansas, soaking lawns and streets with an estimated 210,000 gallons of heavy toxic tar sands crude. For Mayflower's 2,200 residents, the existence of a pipeline running under their homes (and partially through the watershed that provides water to 400,000 people) came as a shock.

Considered a "major spill" by the EPA, it sickened hundreds of residents and exposed them to known carcinogens like benzene and to hydrogen sulfide, which causes respiratory illnesses.

Who's Responsible

ExxonMobil. The Pegasus pipeline was built to carry lighter oil north from the Gulf Coast. In 2006 it was repurposed to carry the far heavier bitumen south from Canada. Bitumen is so thick that it has to be heated and diluted with gas in order to flow properly. In November, PHMSA proposed fining ExxonMobil $2.6 million…

Radiation Testing on Humans in United States Widespread!

The health ramifications of human testing are unknown
Radiation Survey: Procedures
Three members of Congress are demanding answers after a St. Louis scholar’s new book revealed details of how the U.S. government sprayed, injected and fed radiation and other dangerous materials to countless people in secret Cold War-era testing. The health ramifications of the tests are unknown. Lisa Martino-Taylor, an associate professor of sociology at St. Louis Community College who wrote “Behind the Fog: How the U.S. Cold War Radiological Weapons Program Exposed Innocent Americans,” acknowledged that tracing diseases like cancer to specific causes is difficult. But three congressmen who represent areas where testing occurred — Democrats William Lacy Clay of Missouri, Brad Sherman of California and Jim Cooper of Tennessee — said they were outraged by the revelations. Martino-Taylor used Freedom of Information Act requests to obtain previously unreleased documents, including army records. She also reviewe…
