Ireland’s Drinking Water – Poisoned By Design

September 26, 2010

The other day I was looking at recent photos from from a younger relative’s album, and I noticed something as I turned page after page of the smiling faces of their friends. Something jumped out at me immediately as being painfully and obviously wrong. In every picture, every one of these smiling teenagers had brown and yellow teeth. Not one good white set amongst them and yet these are all middle class families with good dental hygiene. All of those handsome young adults’ smiles were destroyed by discoloured enamel. I was shocked and decided to investigate because this was not how I remember teeth when I was growing up, nor is it what I see from people I meet from other countries.

What I was seeing was the results of a lifetime of drinking fluoridated water, from the bottle to the pint. The staining, flaking and pitting of the teeth enamel caused by the interference in the laying down of the enamel layers during the formation of the teeth by the compound commonly known as Fluoride, that is added to our water supply.

Now it is an age old adage that the teeth are a window into the health of the body, Slave traders would always check the teeth of a potential purchase. So is this an indication of more serious problems in the body?

This substance is in fact a byproduct of the aluminium and fertilizer businesses and is classified as toxic waste so dangerous that it cannot be dumped. It is also used as an insecticide, in rat poison and as an ingredient in military nerve gas. A lethal dose of fluoride can in fact kill a human being in just two hours.

The toxicology report describes sodium fluoride as a “protoplasmic poison” which means that when it is dissolved in water it becomes readily absorbed through the mouth, throat and digestive tract. It can also be absorbed through the skin while you bathe and even inhaled.

The symptoms of fluoride poisoning are many and varied depending on exposure ranging from nausea, abdominal problems and sores to more serious problems like damage to the kidneys, thyroid gland, pineal gland, bone cancer, osteoporosis and neurological damage.

This is all common knowledge, so you may ask what on earth is causing the inertia in Ireland on the issue of fluoride? All around the world the practice of fluoridating water has been exposed as unsafe and has been removed from the supply, yet here in Ireland the advocates for it’s removal seem to be running into a stone wall of intransigence from the various government departments in the face of overwhelming evidence and best practice in other countries. No other country in Europe bar Britain (partially) fluoridates water.

Following this story over the years one couldn’t help but conclude that there was a determination to keep fluoride in the water regardless of whatever evidence is presented. Even to the point of defending the indefensible. So who is blocking this and why are they doing it?

Pressure has been mounting on the politicians of late. From what I have heard first hand there have been a plethora of people contacting representatives about this issue, especially the Green Party members of government. John Gormley himself promised some of my associates that the fluoride issue was currently under review and he was awaiting a new report. Although when pressed on why this report has not been published he had no answer.

His last report criticising fluoridation in 2006 was blocked at the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children by the government. Indeed John Gormley seemed to have grasped the nettle back in 2007 when he went on RTE Prime Time and demanded fluoride be removed, citing the the terrible scourge of dental fluorosis that is affecting 40% of our children now and the risk of bone cancer. However since he went into government he seems to have done a u-turn.

It appears to be government policy to continue to add this poison regardless of whatever evidence is placed in front of them. Yet on investigation I find there is very little independent science backing the use of fluoride and this is borne out by the York University report from 2000.

Only this week The Examiner printed a damning letter from Cathy Sinnott highlighting the terrible downside of fluoride ingestion, but up until this the mainstream media have been conspicuous by their absence on this very serious issue.

Not that there is a lack of information for them to report on and force the Department of Health to answer the difficult questions. For instance we have the 2002 North South report which highlighted the fact that children in the Republic had three times the incidence of dental fluorosis than those in the Northern Ireland, who did not fluoridate, and that the incidence had increased seven fold between 1984 and 2002.

In 2001 a group of dentists (IDOF) also broke ranks with the mainstream view this decade and brought a case against Mary Harney and her Health Department. This being the same pairing that have since continued to push the HPV vaccine against the backdrop of all the deaths and injuries from the vaccine in the US and Britain. This also being the same pairing who are still behind the continued push to vaccinate every child with the H1N1 vaccine even after the EU Commissioner for health declared it a fraud. So there is clearly a very poor and complicit track record to consider here.

Even now in the US the Centre for Disease Control and the American Dental Association have issued guidelines that fluoridated water should not be given to children under four nor mixed with baby milk formula. The Food Safety Authority of Ireland reported the same thing to the government. However pressure seems to have been applied by government and now they have changed their finding, omitting the desire to stop fluoridating water and replaced it with a statement that all mothers should breast feed, though how this helps most children over a year isn’t explained.

There are even newer reports available now from the US highlighting the clear correlation between fluoridated water areas and the increased incidences of bone cancer, osteoporosis and broken bones, so why are these reports being ignored in Ireland?

A Sordid History

The history of this substance is a very sordid business and the dangerous effects of fluoride seem to have been known by it’s advocates for a very long time. Extensive toxicology studies were done in the US and published in neurotoxicology journals back in the 1994 by Dr Phyllis Mullenix of the Harvard Medical School. It was also presented to the US National Institute of Dental Research who then buried the results.

What the study found was that fluoride could cause a permanent change in the behavior of animals with as little as 3 days exposure. It also documented changes in behavior that included many the symptoms of what psychiatrists are now calling ADHD. It also documented a condition they called “couch potato syndrome” which has all the same symptoms of what we call chronic fatigue syndrome.

Mullenix’s team discovered that the fluoride finds it’s way into the brain which was contrary to what officialdom’s advocates of fluoride say in their literature. Yet they continue this charade despite the fact that these changes to the mental state were known as far back as 1944 when the original fluoride tests were done, as has been discovered in declassified US documents from the Manhatton Project.

The documents reveal a catalogue of deceit including orders from the highest levels for the cessation of all tests regarding mental confusion due to fluoride intake, even though funding had originally been given to carry them out.

However the most cynical document of all was a memo from 1946 from the project’s chief pharmacologist sent to the Colonel in charge regarding chemical releases on the public, identifying fluoride with absolute certainty as the cause of neurological damage and illness. The memo then goes on to state “Would there be any use at making attempts to counteract the local fear of fluoride ……… through lectures in fluoride toxicology and perhaps the usefulness of fluoride in tooth health”.

So it was 1946 that the lie was hatched about dental health and the coverup of the terrible effects on the central nervous system and literally the character of humanity. With all of this known the government of the US then went about promoting fluoride as “good for your teeth” in a marketing plan devised by the recognised king of manipulation of public opinion Edward Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud and the man who convinced women that smoking was good for women’s equality amongst other things.

It seems strikingly obvious that the governments of the old Empire like Canada, Australia, Britain, Ireland and the US have knowingly and deliberately maintained the illusion that fluoride is safe. They have kept this mind altering substance in the water for a reason. Perhaps because a nation of couch potatos would be much easier to control and will not threaten the authority of the elite group who run things?

Confirmation of this hypothesis might be strengthened when one realises that fluoride can be found in many pharmaceuticals including those used in the treatment of depression. What this amounts to is the forced medication of a population. This is illegal under international law since the Nuremberg Code was drafted after the end of World War II.

It is interesting that the issue of mass drugging of populations made it into the Nuremberg code because the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials were guilty of using fluoride in the water supply to their concentration camp prison population to keep them “docile”. I’m sure the Gestapo weren’t interested in the inmates’ children’s healthy teeth.

Don’t think that the Nazis were the first to think of it though. Stalin’s regime used fluoride in the prison water supply from the 1930s as a tranquilizer. This was when the idea was exported to Britain. In testimony to the government in the Un-American Activities Report in 1939 it was revealed that Communist sympathisers in the US has discussed using fluoride to make the population docile while they brought in Communism by degrees in the US upon a lethargic population. Even to the point of keeping a large store of fluoride at each reservior in the event they needed to poison the population to maintain power.

So you see there is a long and established history of mass medication and tranquilizing of the population with this chemical. Fluoride is a highly toxic and lethal substance in very small quantities. It can cause illness and mental disorder, and it can be used to subdue the spirit of anyone who drinks it. As chemist Charles Perkins famously said in 1954 “Any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.”

Fluoride is a medication and it is a fact that any medication that is to be allowed used in Ireland MUST be approved by the Irish Medicines Board. Fluoride has never been approved for use in water by the IMB and hence those responsible of keeping it in our water are guilty of a crime.

Finally, one of the most shocking aspects I have discovered about fluoride is that it has been shown that there is a chemical process whereby the fluoride attracts aluminium and tricks the body into allowing it to pass through the blood/brain barrier. It should be noted that studies have shown an increased level of aluminium in the brains of people who suffer from altzhiemers disease, which we all see is on the increase and is affecting people younger and younger to different degrees.

All of these issues are being purposefully ignored by the authorities and when you look at the whole picture, with our isolation in Europe as the only country out of 500 million people who are given no choice but to drink fluoridated water, and the flat out intransigence of the government, you might conclude that we are somehow being used as a mass social experiment in population control. By the way people sit idly by while the politicians are robbing the banks in broad daylight, I think it is working.

As a measure of how cynical this defense of the forced medication of the public is and how far the government, for whatever reason, will go to maintain it, I refer to the constitutional challenge made in 1967. In this case the plaintiff challenged the practice based on a right to bodily integrity. However, the judge ruled that there was no case to answer as the government is not obliged to supply water to the population and the people are not obliged to drink it. Well now the government are trying to introduce water charges I think we will see a new challenge very soon because this man certainly will not be paying for his poison.

It may also have escaped your notice that fluoridated toothpaste used to carry a warning that if you swallow a pea sized amount of toothpaste you should call poison control, however in more recent times this warning has been quietly removed from the instructions on the tube by the manufacturers, as if fluoride magically became safe to swallow.

This persistent and deliberate sidelining of all scientific information that highlights fluoride as the danger to public health that it has always been known to be, is an act of criminality on the part of the people controlling the information. The good people of Ireland must stand up to these criminals and demand prosecutions for the mass poisoning of a population before another generation is destroyed.

Excellent summary of the current state of the vaccines cover-up and how the veil is falling by Paul Watson

Vaccine Deaths And Injuries Skyrocket As Cover-Up Implodes

Global revolt against deadly vaccines spreads as cases of debilitating illnesses, soft-kill side-effects and even instant deaths become widespread

Cases of debilitating illnesses, soft-kill side-effects and even instant deaths as a result of vaccinations across the world are skyrocketing as the cover-up of deadly inoculations implodes and more people than ever become suspicious about what they are being injected with by health authorities who have proven they cannot be trusted.

The implosion of the vaccine cover-up is sure to discourage more parents from vaccinating their children in the coming months, with the swine flu shot now being combined with the regular seasonal flu jab. A recent Rasmussen poll found that 52 per cent of Americans were concerned about the safety of vaccinesas we approach the start of school and college terms, where many children and teenagers will be “required” to take shots before they can attend.

A global revolt against dangerous vaccines is brewing following a series of cases where children have been killed as a direct result of inoculations.

A measles vaccination program in India was halted after four children died almost immediately after receiving the shot. “Four children died within minutes of receiving a vaccine for measles followed by drops of Vitamin A solution on Saturday,” reports MedGuru.

Indian newspaper reports carried eyewitness accounts of what happened. “The four children were reported to have fainted soon after they were vaccinated and witnesses reported seeing the children’s eyes roll back as they began to have seizures,” reports Blitz.

Furious villagers reacted to the tragedy by going on a rampage, attacking health workers and holding government doctors hostage.

Health professionals and doctors with government ties were also blamed in Finland and Sweden after aH1N1 vaccination program was halted following a 300 per cent increase in cases of the neurological disorder narcolepsy amongst children and young people who had received the shot over the last six months.

According to Kari Lankinen, head physician of the Finnish Medicines Agency, doctors were complicit in hiding the link between the swine flu shot and narcolepsy and did so to advance their careers.

Meanwhile, concerned mothers whose daughters have been injured or killed by the Gardasil vaccine have put together a website that documents the truth about how the vaccine has killed and injured thousands of young girls since it was introduced in 2006. Thousands of teenagers have suffered adverse reactions and at least 71 have died from the vaccine since the HPV program was launched four years ago.

The global vaccine cover-up took a massive blow after it was confirmed that the 2009 swine flu outbreak was, as we predicted from the start, a contrived scam centered around making vast profits for pharmaceutical companies while endangering the health of the public.

As we reported earlier this year, Chair of the Council of Europe’s Sub-committee on Health Wolfgang Wodarg’s investigation into the 2009 swine flu outbreak found that the pandemic was a fake hoax manufactured by pharmaceutical companies in league with the WHO.

Wodarg said that governments were “threatened” by special interest groups within the pharmaceutical industry as well as the WHO to buy the vaccines and inject their populations without any reasonable scientific reason for doing so, and yet in countries like Germany and France only around 6 per cent took the vaccine despite enough being available to cover 90 per cent of the population.

Wodarg said there was “no other explanation” for what happened than the fact that the WHO worked in cahoots with the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture the panic in order to generate vast profits, agreeing with host Alex Jones that the entire farce was a hoax.

He also explained how health authorities were “already waiting for something to happen” before the pandemic started and then exploited the virus for their own purposes.

Professor Ulrich Keil, director of the World Health Organization’s Collaborating Centre for Epidemiology, also slammed the swine flu epidemic as an overblown “angst campaign”, devised in conjunction with major drug companies to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers.

As Natural News’ Mike Adams reported, several members of the Emergency Committee expert panel that advised the World Health Organization (WHO) during the swine flu scare were receiving financial support from pharmaceutical manufacturers either during or prior to the epidemic.

Both H1N1 and seasonal flu shots have been linked with a number of different side-effects across the globe, including Guillain-Barré Syndrome as well as dystonia, a paralyzing neurological disorder.

The seasonal flu vaccine has also been linked with convulsions and fits in under-5′s.

Many batches of the swine flu vaccine included squalene and mercury amongst their ingredients, two substances that have been directly connected with the explosion of autism amongst children as well as other diseases. Individuals within government and the military were privileged to receive additive free shots that did not include these substances. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and government ministers, as well as German soldiers, were amongst those who received access to the so-called “friendly” version of the vaccine.

In order to head off legal claims for side-effects caused by the swine flu vaccination program, the U.S. government provided vaccine makers with blanket legal immunity before the shots began to be dispersed.

Citing concerns over safety, Prime Minister Donald Tusk and Health Minister Ewa Kopacz, with the broad support of the public, ensured that Poland was the only country in the world to completely reject the H1N1 vaccine.

“We are making this decision only in the interest of the Polish patient and the taxpayer,” Tusk said. “We will not take part because it’s not honest and it’s not safe for the patient.”

In a 2008 trial for a bird flu vaccine, three Polish doctors and six nurses faced criminal charges after the vaccine killed 21 homeless people who were participating in the test.

The Czech Republic rejected a swine flu vaccine produced by pharmaceutical manufacturer Baxter after the company was caught shipping vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus to 18 countries by a lab at an Austrian branch of Baxter.

Given the routinely stated goal on behalf of mega-rich foundations that fund vaccination programs around the world, such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, to use vaccines as a way of sterilizing the planet’s population as part of the global eugenics soft-kill assault on humanity, it’s unsurprising that as more people become aware of this agenda, take-up rates of new as well as seasonal vaccines continue to decline.

As Jurriaan Maessen recently documented in his Infowars exclusive, in its 1968 yearly report, the Rockefeller Foundation acknowledged funding the development of so-called “anti-fertility vaccines” and their implementation on a mass-scale.

This program was then launched by a group that was created under auspices of the World Health Organization, World Bank and UN Population Fund entitled “Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation”. In the 1990′s, the WHO was mired in controversy after it distributed a “tetanus vaccine” to poor girls and women in the third world that was contaminated with human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a hormone that induces involuntary abortion.

During a TED conference earlier this year, Bill Gates openly stated that vaccines would be used to lower the earth’s population in the name of combating climate change. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is one of the major funders of vaccine research and production in the third world.

Warning that the global population was heading towards 9 billion, Gates said, “If we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services (abortion), we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 per cent.”

Quite how an improvement in health care and vaccines that supposedly save lives would lead to a lowering in global population is an oxymoron, unless Gates was referring to vaccines that sterilize people, which is precisely the same method advocated in White House science advisor John P. Holdren’s 1977 textbook Ecoscience, which calls for a dictatorial “planetary regime” to enforce draconian measures of population reduction via all manner of oppressive techniques, including sterilization.

With people globally becoming increasingly aware of the role of vaccines in the agenda to reduce world population, the cover-up of debilitating diseases, soft kill side-effects, and instant fatalities as a result of vaccinations will continue to implode, until authorities are forced by law to implement vastly more stringent screening procedures and remove the toxic additives from vaccines that are causing these deaths and diseases.

Let’s examine the deliberate media vaccine bias

August 30, 2010

This is just an exercise in examinining how the mainstream press are untrustworthy and not to be believed. The story that came up Saturday was the story of the now almost 19 year old Robert Fletcher who, as is reported in the Daily Mail has just been awarded £90,000 from the Vaccines Damage Payment Scheme (VDPS) in the UK. A pretty derisory amount considering his entire life has been taken away, leaving him with the mind of a 14 month old, unable to walk, extreme bouts of epilepsy, and prone to many other illnesses.

However, the most important part of this case is the ruling. That being that the cause of Robert’s life destroying disabilities and brain damage was the MMR 3 in 1 vaccine he received at ages 13 months. The panel of two doctors and one barrister at the appeal hearing ruled the MMR as the cause despite the attempts to use the “not proved beyond a doubt” or “coincidence” get out that is used by every pharmaceutical company for every incidence of death or injury from every vaccine

This case should be the key to the door, the leak in the floodgates that finally starts the tearing down of the veil of secrecy and lies perpetrated by the government and medical profession over the safety of vaccines for decades. It was the golden moment for the free press to shine and go for the jugular and start real debate. To ask all the relevent questions and pull out the real data on vaccine damage and the real situation regarding the corruption of the law surrounding claims of damage and the lack of data being collated by the authorities on exactly what is causing all the human waste Ah, but then the Daily Mail got hold of the story and this is what happened

Look at the way this so called journalist has reported this story. The case was a matter of public record so it couldn’t be ignored and had to be covered by the newspapers. So Martin Delgado has done so but has gone to pains to make sure it reads as nothing more than an irrelevant blip, despite the findings of the panel.

On half a dozen occasions in the article he stresses that there is no proven link between MMR and brain damage or autism; and on 4 separate occasions he take the opportunity to link in the completely unrelated story of Dr Robert Wakefield and slates him based on a corrupt ruling by a bought and paid for Medical Council decision. Repeat, repeat, repeat a lie until it becomes the truth, wasn’t that Stalin’s mantra? Well Martin seems to have been taught this method.

Then to round it off he finishes with the expected post script of the MMR being perfectly safe according to scientific studies, while never actually referring to any or the sources and their links to pharma and the elite foundations. So by the time the reader gets to the end of the article they have forgotten that it was about the MMR being ruled the cause of disablement and come away with the idea that MMR is safe and anyone who says otherwise should be struck off.

Do you see how this controlled corrupt press writing works now? They must report it so they spin it. This highlights to us most distinctly why we cannot trust anything we read in the mainstream press. For if we could then why would they not do a piece on the ruling that opened the up debate, asking a lot of questions that then forced the medical fraternity to enter the debate to defend their vaccines with real independent data instead of corrupt corporate data.

Well if you look into who owns the mainstream press and follow the money trail you will find your answer

The “article” from the Daily Mail

Family win 18 year fight over MMR damage to son: £90,000 payout is first since concerns over vaccine surfaced

By MARTIN DELGADO
Last updated at 11:35 PM on 28th August 2010

A mother whose son suffered severe brain damage after he was given the controversial MMR vaccine as a baby has been awarded £90,000 compensation.
The judgment is the first of its kind to be revealed since concerns were raised about the safety of the triple jab.

He endures frequent epileptic fits and requires round-the-clock care from his parents Jackie and John, though he is not autistic.
He suffered the devastating effects after being given the combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccine when he was 13 months old.

The Department of Health had always denied that the jab was the cause of Robert’s disability.
But now, in a judgment which will give hope to hundreds of other parents whose children have been severely affected by routine vaccinations, a medical assessment panel consisting of two doctors and a barrister has concluded that MMR was to blame.

Robert’s mother Jackie said the money would help with his care, though she described the amount as ‘derisory’.

Her first application for compensation under the Government’s Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme was rejected in 1997 on the grounds that it was impossible to prove beyond reasonable doubt what had caused Robert’s illness.
But Mrs Fletcher appealed and in a ruling delivered last week, a new panel of experts came to a different conclusion.

Healthy: Robert in the bath as baby before he had the MMR jab
In a six-page judgment, they said: ‘Robert was a more or less fit boy who, within the period usually considered relevant to immunisation, developed a severe convulsion… and he then went on to be epileptic and severely retarded.

‘The seizure occurred ten days after the vaccination. In our view, this cannot be put down to coincidence.

‘It is this temporal association that provides the link. It is this that has shown on the balance of probabilities that the vaccination triggered the epilepsy.
‘On this basis, we find that Robert is severely disabled as a result of vaccination and this is why we allowed the appeal.’

The ruling will reignite the debate over the safety of common childhood vaccines, although it makes clear that Robert’s case does not involve autism.
There is one other reported case of a family being given compensation as a result of an MMR jab.
But Mrs Fletcher said she believed the compensation award to Robert was the first to a surviving MMR-damaged person since controversy erupted in 1998 when the now discredited Dr Andrew Wakefield raised concerns about a possible link between the combined MMR injection and autism. He has since been struck off the medical register.

The Government refuses to say how many awards have been directly attributed to this jab rather than other inoculations against illnesses such as diphtheria or whooping cough.
Details of successful claims involving vaccine-damaged children are seldom publicised because the Department of Health is thought to be anxious not to encourage a rush of applications.
Figures released in 2005 under the Freedom of Information Act revealed that tribunals had paid out £3.5 million over the previous eight years.

The Department for Work and Pensions, which administers the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme, said: ‘We do not hold any information on how many awards have been MMR-related.
‘It is not a requirement when a case is being assessed for the medical adviser to state which vaccine the damage has been attributed to.

‘Nor is it a requirement to list the disabling condition that gave rise to the award.’
The controversy over a suggested link between MMR and autism erupted in 1998 when Dr Wakefield published a paper in The Lancet medical journal.

His work has since been discredited and earlier this year Dr Wakefield, who has moved to America, was struck off the medical register after the General Medical Council ruled that he had acted against the interests of patients and ‘failed in his duties as a responsible consultant’.

Campaign: Robert’s mother Jackie set up JABS – a pressure group which provides advice and support to families affected by vaccinations

Robert Fletcher does not suffer from autism. But Mrs Fletcher, from Warrington, Cheshire, said the ruling would give hope to hundreds of other parents fighting to prove that their children’s disabilities were caused by the MMR injection.

Mrs Fletcher set up and runs pressure group JABS – Justice, Awareness and Basic
Support. Around 2,000 families seeking compensation for their vaccine-damaged children are registered with the group, which provides advice and support.

‘My husband John and I have battled for 18 years for the cause of Robert’s disability to be officially recognised,’ she said. ‘We were told the vaccine was perfectly safe. Like most people, we trusted what the doctors and nurses were putting to us.

‘Robert is nearly 19 but mentally he is like a 14-month-old toddler. He can’t stand unaided and he is doubly incontinent. ‘He can’t speak except to say “Hi, Mum” or “Hi, Daddy”.
‘We chop up his food and have to anticipate all his needs. He is prone to various illnesses and last week suffered around 40 severe epileptic seizures.

‘In April this year, we thought we’d lost him. He contracted a chest infection and had to go to hospital for several days.

‘He is such a lovely boy. When he’s not ill, he’s so cheerful and seems to take everything on the chin. In between seizures he says “Hi, Mum” and tries to kiss me.

‘The money is a derisory amount though it will help with making adaptations to the house for Robert’s benefit.

‘What matters is the recognition that MMR was the reason this happened.’

The first doctor who assessed Robert under the compensation scheme in 1996 concluded that he had suffered a ‘simple febrile convulsion with no long-lasting consequences’. Although he agreed that Robert had a degree of disability, he refused to accept that the MMR vaccine was to blame.
At this month’s appeal, evidence was given by a leading expert on vaccine-damaged children, paediatric neurologist Dr Marcel Kinsbourne. He explained the biological changes which had occurred in Robert’s brain following the vaccination.

The one-day hearing was chaired by a barrister sitting with two doctors, Professor Sundara Lingam, a former consultant at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, and Dr Adrian Allaway.

In a dissenting judgment, Professor Lingam said he believed Robert was ‘genetically predisposed to epilepsy and that the vaccination triggered it rather than caused it.

‘Robert would have developed epilepsy in any event, even if he had not had the vaccination’.
But Professor Lingam was overruled by his two colleagues.

In their final judgment, they accepted that MMR had caused Robert’s illness but added: ‘We would stress that this decision is fact-specific and it should not be seen as a precedent for any other case.

‘In particular, it has no relevance to the issue… as to whether there is a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.’

Last night, Tory MP Nadine Dorries, a member of the powerful Commons Health Committee, said: ‘If an independent panel has reached the conclusion that there has been a link between the MMR vaccine and the brain damage suffered by this boy in this case, then it is fair to assume that there could be as many as thousands of children and parents in the same position.

‘There should be full and easy access to all documentation relating to the judgment for any parent or professional to read and assess.’

Dr Michael Fitzpatrick, a London GP whose own son is autistic, said: ‘It is a very important principle that parents should be compensated in cases of this kind. ‘But although a causal link has been established in law in this instance, exhaustive scientific research has failed to establish any link between MMR and brain damage.

‘This case should not make parents feel any different about the safety of the vaccine.’
The Department of Health said: ‘This decision reflects the opinion of a tribunal on the specific facts of the case and they were clear that it should not be seen as a precedent for any other case.
‘The safety of MMR has been endorsed through numerous studies in many countries.’

Mercury is toxic to humans, so why do we put it in our bodies?

July 27, 2010

Mercury is toxic to humans, so why do we put it in our bodies?


Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive substance to which humans can be exposed. The effects on health are dramatic and extensive, It has a detrimental effect on organs, glands, brain and all the body’s different systems. So the question must be asked, why are we being told it is ok to put it into our bodies?

There are a number of sources of mercury entering the body which will be covered later. However, the largest exposure we are subjected to is from our own mouth. To be more precise, from the amalgam fillings dentistry has deemed it safe to use in our teeth. This has even been confirmed as far back as 1991 by the World Health Organisation.

For the last hundred years or so mercury based metal fillings have been used to fill teeth. Whether by accident or otherwise is another question, but it remains a fact that mercury is incredibly dangerous. The effects on health have been measured in countless studies. One of the most dramatic being that carried out by the University of Calgary which actually filmed the effect of mercury on brain neurons. When mercury was introduced the molecules interfered with the production of tubulin which surrounds the neuron causing it to collapse and the neuron to die. The effect of this is to prevent the growth or regeneration of brain tissue and so effect the functioning of the brain.

Other studies like those done by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology have shown as far back as 1985 that amalgam fillings de-gas for the lifetime of the filling giving off mercury vapour. This can be caused simply from body temperature, or chewing. The levels of mercury given off from a grinding action were shown to be double that of the level a working space would need to be evacuated for safety reasons. The mercury was shown to quickly spread to the jaw, liver, kidneys, stomach and heart. They also show the mercury spreads to the brain and to every part of an unborn foetus.

Just for a comparison think for a moment about what safety procedures are required if a mercury thermometer or bulb is broken. Hazardous waste procedures must be implemented. An isolated and well vented environment must be created and the mercury collected and disposed of by sealing up all waste and cleaning materials in bags and removing sections of materials or carpet where spills have occurred. They must then be disposed of in accordance with strict guidelines. This information can be found from the Environmental Protection Agencies in any country and shows how serious the health implications of mercury really are.

Even with this information in the public domain the dental industry do of course claim that silver amalgam is a stable form of mercury and that once in place it doesn’t give off significant levels of vapour, and produce studies to back up their claim. However what they don’t tell you is that the the studies they rely upon for this conclusion are all funded by the dental industry and none are independent. In contrast there are over 1400 independent studies that advise that mercury is a toxic substance and should not be used for fillings. So it seems strange that the industry ignores them if they are concerned with the safety of patients and workers alike. Indeed statistically dentists have been shown to not live as long as other work groups, and dental nurses have been shown to have a higher incidence of infertility.

One of the strangest anomalies of the recommendations of the British Dental Association is that despite advising that amalgam fillings are perfectly safe and are not putting the patient in danger of leeching mercury, at the same time it accuses the mercury free dentistry proponents of putting patients at risk of mercury exposure by replacing amalgam fillings. Furthermore they also recommend that women should not have amalgam fillings drilled during pregnancy. This sounds like double standards to any observer. So which is it BDA, toxic or non toxic?

Evidence from independent studies has shown that mercury is linked to a wide range of illnesses affecting the heart and blood disorders, digestive problems including bloating, and a reduction in kidney function as well as many lesser ailments. These may be largely to do with the effect it has on the endocrine system and the functioning of the glands in the body that release hormones that keep the body working properly. One of the most troublesome is the effect on the thyroid gland which regulates the body’s metabolism.

By far the most worrying effect though is the deterioration of the brain. Mercury has been linked to many behavioral problems and mood changes including depression and anger, but worse still it has been linked to autism and altzhiemers for the reasons shown by the Calgary study. These two have shown a huge increase in the last 80 years with autism previously almost unheard of at 1 in 10,000 now occurring in 1 in 100 in the USA. Altzheimers too is now affecting younger and younger people. Memory loss and changes in behavior have been a common symptom linked to mercury.

These ailments were put to the test by proponents of amalgam free dentistry whereby they safely removed amalgam fillings from long time owners and measured the improvement in their health problems. What they found was an improvement of symptoms for most ailments of between 70 and 94% of subjects in everything from bad tempers to multiple sclerosis.

Amalgam is not the only source of mercury in our bodies. We can get it from fish in small amounts which we deal with through magnesium and calcium in our diets. However there are other man made sources such as the preservatives used in multi dose vaccines such as the MMR or the flu vaccines of which more and more are being pushed upon us.

Another highly unlikely source is high fructose corn syrup of which around 50% of it has been discovered to contain mercury for no apparent good reason. This ingredient is used in half the processed foods in the shops these days and is hard to avoid.

If you add in the fact that the amalgam material used was changed from the 1970s onwards to a new type that was later found to give off even more mercury vapour than it’s predecessor. It would seem that those in control of our health have a determination to get this mercury into our bodies by hook or by crook despite all the evidence of it’s toxicity, and despite all common sense. The question then becomes, why, when there are alternative treatments available?

There seems to be a culture, if you can call it that, of people believing everything that they are told because it comes from someone in “authority” rather than believing our own eyes. When the two become so far removed from eachother we need to start trusting our instincts and asking why those proposing to make these decisions for us are not considering all the evidence and are plainly disregarding the vast majority of it in favour of a failed model?

If you do decide to replace amalgams make sure it is done safely as you will be exposed to very high levels of mercury vapour during the removal. Rubber damming, suction and ventilation are good practice at a bare minimum. Remember, you are the one paying for the work so do not be fobbed off by your dentist.
