Autism: The Biggest Healthcare Cover-Up in History

Autism has increased by over 6,000 percent in recent years and is now diagnosed in one in every 90 children. The CDC and other supposed “authorities” claim they don’t know the cause, but they’re sure it’s not vaccines. We have the truth… and so do they. They just don’t want you to know that they know because they caused the problem. Thugs, Drugs and the War on Bugs, by Dr. Brad Case gives you all the sordid details with memos, secret documents and other scientific/medical journals as references to absolutely prove the point. Here is the powerful trailer for that section of this ground breaking book:

A while back (a few posts ago), we discussed the fact that fluoride is not a healthful nutrient, but rather is a toxic waste product. It’s more toxic than lead and almost as toxic as arsenic, and yet we actually add this poison to our water under the guise that it helps prevent cavities, when in reality it causes teeth to weaken and can even lead to bone cancer. This toxic waste product also shows up in most toothpastes and is promoted by most dentists, who also offer fluoride treatments. Now, I’d like to discuss another tooth-related toxin.

Since the 1800s, dentists have been using mercury, the most toxic non-radioactive substance in the world, in the so-called “silver fillings” or amalgams that they fill cavities with. These fillings are not primarily made of silver. They are, in fact, about 50 percent mercury! The second most prevalent ingredient in them is copper, which is also toxic beyond tiny amounts. The American Dental Association (ADA) claims that this mercury is stable, i.e. that it won’t leech out of the teeth, but this is an absolute lie. Many studies have shown that the mercury in silver amalgams is definitely NOT stable and with it being implanted just a few inches from your brain, and with a direct route up the tooth’s nerve, and knowing that mercury loves nervous (brain) tissue (it is widely known as a potent neurotoxin), this seems very unwise. Remember, this is the same toxic heavy metal that causes autism, tertiary syphilis, and mad hatter’s disease. It may also be behind the fact that a huge number of dentists commit suicide every year.

“Mercury amalgams are a time-released poison.”

Here’s one video showing that mercury definitely vaporizes from fillings with just slight stimulation, as in chewing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qvNf4NVZvI.

So the mercury from fillings can affect you in multiple ways. When it vaporizes, you breathe it into your lungs where it enters your bloodstream and can go anywhere. You also swallow saliva that’s laced with mercury. From your digestive tract, it can once again enter your bloodstream and go anywhere. And, as mentioned before, mercury has the ability to travel up nerves to the brain in a process known as retrograde axonal transport. It does this at the predictable rate of 30 mm(~1.2 inches)/day.

Dr. Hal Huggins is one of the world’s foremost authorities on this subject. He’s written several books, including his classic, It’s All In Your Head and has saved the lives of thousands of patients by safely removing their amalgams. He claims to have cured over 1,000 people of multiple sclerosis merely by removing their silver amalgams and other dental toxins and helping them to detoxify metals from their bodies. Many other auto-immune diseases also clear up when this is done. That’s because mercury fools your body into attacking its own tissues, thus leading to auto-immune disease. In fact, when scientists want to induce an auto-immune disease in animals in order to study these problems, they use mercury to do so! And yet, the CDC and other health authorities continue to say they don’t know what causes autism, lupus, MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) hypothyroidism, etc. Once again, this is a big, fat lie. I know the cause of these problems and so do many others. It’s heavy metals, with mercury being at the top of the list. Aluminum, arsenic, lead, copper, and cadmium are other common disease-causing metals. That means, if you still have silver fillings in your mouth, and you have any health issues (or even if you don’t), you should think seriously about having your amalgams replaced.

Replacing your amalgams is not something to take lightly, however. If you go to a dentist who’s not been trained in this area, s/he will likely just drill out the mercury, causing its toxic dust and vapors to go everywhere. During the procedure, you will be breathing in a huge amount of the toxic metal and swallowing even more. Depending on the size of the filling and your dentist’s technique, this huge exposure may amount to more mercury being absorbed during the procedure than you’ve absorbed in many years or even the entire life of the amalgam! This is exactly what happened to me a few years ago, so I’m speaking from direct experience.

As a child, I was allowed all the sugar I wanted. It was ever-present in our household. Like most kids, I also wasn’t very fond of brushing my teeth, so I ended up with lots of cavities. These cavities were all filled with the mercury/copper amalgams. As an adult, some of those fillings started to shrink (proof they’re not stable) and new cavities appeared in the cracks around the edges of the old fillings. So, my dentist (who was not trained in the safe removal of these toxins) drilled out the old stuff and replaced it with safer materials. I was glad to have several of my silver fillings replaced, but then, within a few months, my health began deteriorating.

At a seminar, while learning a new diagnostic method, I was tested by a colleague and was found to be pretty darned sick, despite feeling pretty good at the time. Partially because I didn’t feel too bad yet, partially because I had always considered myself a healthy person, and partially because the person testing me was new at the technique, at first, I didn’t trust the results. When I got back to my office that next week, I tested myself and got the exact same results my colleague had. A couple months later, I had a very experienced teacher of the technique test me. He too got the exact same results. He actually looked at me with concern and said, “You’re pretty sick, huh?” At that point, I had to admit it. I was sick.

In a short time, I began to notice that, very often, when I swallowed, there was a distinct clicking/clunking in my throat. My energy was very low, I became very depressed, and every joint in my body became inflamed with just a slight increase in activity. These things all added up to my inability to exercise much more than walking, which led to even less energy and more depression. It eventually got to where I was so exhausted at the end of the work day, that I could barely drag my tired butt up the stairs at home. Each of these problems continued to get worse over time. The clicking in my throat became so noticeable that my wife could hear it while sitting on the couch next to me, and it was becoming hard to swallow. As my job requires the nearly constant use of my arms, shoulders, and hands, I was also starting to think about the need to find other employment. My hands, in particular, had become so painful that I was resorting to all sorts of things to try to relieve the pain…all without results. It actually felt like I had stress fractures around several of my finger joints. I started thinking that at this rate, I probably wouldn’t be able to do my job for much more than another year, if that. Although I wasn’t tested, I firmly believe I was developing (or had developed) rheumatoid arthritis. I had also become hypothyroid (thus, the depression and fatigue) and nobody seemed to know what was causing the clicking in my throat. In short, I was scared.

Luckily for me, I had some idea of what the problem might be. But up until this point, all my knowledge and all my efforts at healing myself were not doing the job. During this time, I had several hair analyses performed. Each of them showed extreme (literally off the charts) copper toxicity, but little or no mercury. I knew though, that mercury often doesn’t show up on hair analysis—at least at first. (Mercury only shows up in the hair if it’s actually circulating rather than staying put in your tissues. Other testing procedures, like DMSA challenge tests, will pull mercury from the tissues, and are better at finding this problem, but they can be very dangerous for the patient, as the newly mobilized mercury may settle in even worse places in your body. For example, it could pull mercury from your liver and deposit it in your brain. For this reason, I do not recommend these tests to anyone. For the same reason, I don’t recommend I.V. chelation, at least not until late in the process of detoxing.) But I was still very suspicious of the mercury. So, I sought help from outside.

I went to a very knowledgeable doctor in my area for several months. He tested me using muscle testing and put me on a bunch of supplements, but once again, he did not find mercury as the culprit, and predictably, I did not improve under his care. Next, I travelled up to see an old friend from school who had some advanced training in Nutrition Response Testing. She checked me, again using muscle testing, and she was able to find the problem. Just as I suspected, she found mercury all over my body, but especially in my brain, prostate, and thyroid. She gave me a homeopathic remedy, an herbal formula, and some whole food concentrates.

I started taking the products right away and in a short time, all my issues started clearing up. The clicking in my throat, the pain in my hands and other joints, the depression and fatigue…all started going away. After being on the remedies and supplements for a couple months, I (being human) slacked off on my regimen and the symptoms started returning. I immediately went back on them and once again, the symptoms began disappearing. Three years later, I’m still working on this problem, and it’s possible that I’ll be detoxing forever, but that’s not how it has to be.

For my remaining mercury fillings, I went to a biological/holistic dentist. He had special tools that allow for the safe removal of mercury fillings. I’ve now had all the metal removed from my mouth and my health is returning more every day. I wish I had had the temerity to seek this doctor’s help in the first place, but I didn’t, and I’ve learned a hard lesson that I hope to pass on to you. I hope you’ll pass it on to others as well. Mercury is NOT something to mess around with. It can literally kill you and this poison should never have been allowed by the ADA or FDA to be permanently implanted into people’s heads just inches from their brains. I actually witnessed as mercury and other heavy metals slowly killed my friend and colleague Dr. David Nilmeier. Right now, I have a patient who is dying from the same problem Dr. David had. His mouth is literally filled with mercury amalgams, which has led to a diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). I see mercury and other metals robbing the health of my patients practically every day. It is one of the biggest healthcare issues we face in today’s world. In fact, I would say that heavy metals, in general, are the most common cause of chronic health issues that I see.

If you have any of these toxic fillings in your teeth, please, please, please don’t have them removed by your dentist unless s/he has special training and the right tools for the job. My holistic dentist used a special instrument that vibrated the filling until it fell apart. Then he simply removed the fillings in a couple large chunks…much better than vaporizing the whole thing or turning it into metallic dust. Another method used by holistic dentists is to shield the surrounding area with a big rubber dam, and to have you breathing fresh air/oxygen through a tube. This is the more common method, though it may not be the best.

There are many substances that are safer than mercury amalgams to fill teeth with. Indeed almost anything would be safer. Common ingredients used in holistic dental offices include porcelain, plastic, glass, a composite resin, or some combination of these.

After amalgam removal and replacement, you’ll want to work on detoxing your body. Again, this is best left to the experts and is far too much to go into here. If you want much more information on this very important topic, please read one of Hal Huggins’s books (available on Amazon.com).

The internet is a great tool to help you find a holistic/biological dentist in your area. This is a hugely important step, so please do not blow it off like I did. Other than this issue, I was a very healthy person when I allowed my regular dentist to drill out my fillings. I think this one mistake could very well have killed me, just like it did my old friend, if I hadn’t found the right homeopathic and herbal remedies to help me get better. If I couldn’t handle the massive exposure to the mercury dust and fumes, I don’t suggest you try it. Stoicism is no protection from the toxic effects of this killer. So, do your research, find your doctor, and get the toxins out of your mouth!

This could very well be the missing piece to your healthcare puzzle. Good luck!

T’was a dangerous cliff as they freely confessed,

Though to walk near its edge was so pleasant.

But over its edge had slipped a Duke,

A bishop, and many a peasant.

The people said, “Something would have to be done,”

But their projects did not at all tally.

Some said, “Put a fence around the edge of the cliff,”

Others, “An ambulance down in the valley.”

The Lament of the crowd was profound and loud,

As their hearts overflowed with pity.

But the cry for the ambulance carried the day,

And it spread through the neighboring city.

So a collection was made to accumulate aid,

And dwellers in highway and alley,

Gave dollars and cents not to furnish a fence,

But an ambulance down in the valley.

“For the cliff is alright if you’re careful,” they said,

“And if folks ever slip and are falling,

It’s not the slipping and falling that hurts them so much

As the shock down below when they’re stopping.”

And so, day after day, as these mishaps occurred,

Quick forth would the rescuers sally,

To pick up the victims who fell from the cliff

With the ambulance down in the valley.

Then an old sage remarked, “It’s a marvel to me

That you’d give so much greater attention

To repairing results than to curing the cause;

Why, you’d much better aim at prevention.

For the mischief of course should be stopped at its source;

Come neighbors and friends, let us rally.

If the cliff we will fence, we might almost dispense

With the ambulance down in the valley.”

“He’s wrong in his head,” the majority said.

“He would end all our earnest endeavors.

He would cancel all charities, too, if he could

No, no, we’ll support them forever!

Aren’t we picking up all just as fast as they fall,

And giving them care liberally?

Why a superfluous fence is of no consequence,

If the ambulance works in the valley.”

Now the story seems queer as I’ve given it here,

But things oft’ occur which are stranger.

More humane we assert to repair the hurt,

Than the plan of removing the danger.

This story, so old, has been beautifully told,

How folks with best of intentions,

Have wasted their years and lavished their tears

On treatment, with naught for prevention.

But a sensible few, who are practical too,

Will not bear such nonsense much longer.

They believe that prevention is better than cure,

And their party will soon be the stronger.

Encourage them, then, with your purse, voice, and pen,

And while other philanthropists dally,

They will scorn all pretense and put up a fence

On the cliff that hangs over the valley.

In my last post, I discussed where bacteria come from, their life cycle, and their purpose in life. Now, I’d like to discuss viruses. While bacteria and viruses are often discussed together, and they seem to come from the same “parent” (that being a prion), they are as different from each other as an elephant and an ant, which also happens to be their approximate size differential.

Viruses are often described as if they were the most ruthless and cunning things on earth, bent on destroying all life on this planet. But the reality is, viruses are nothing more than short chains of DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein shell, called a capsid. They don’t eat; they have no brain or nervous system and therefore cannot possibly be cunning; and they can’t reproduce without the help of a cell. They’re so tiny they can barely even be seen with an electron microscope. (Any color pictures you may have seen of viruses are only artist’s renditions.) They’re actually shorter than a light wave, which makes studying them very difficult! (You’d be amazed at what passes for “proof” in studies involving viruses.) In fact, viruses, much like prions, are not even considered living things, which makes killing them a lesson in futility.

So, where do viruses come from and what is their purpose? The old theory was that a virus attacked a cell and hijacked its machinery in order to make more viruses—part of their evil plot to take over and destroy the world. They seemed to have no other purpose than to reproduce and cause disease in susceptible hosts. But recent findings show a completely different picture.

Cells have certain molecules in them called “transposons” that are constantly tweaking our DNA in an effort to improve upon it. Transposons are called into high gear under stressful situations (like cold weather or a toxic environment) where cellular evolution is needed. Once a cell learns how to adapt to the new stressor, it creates many more transposons, packages them up, and sends them on to other cells to teach them the same trick. The receiving cell then has its DNA altered, creates more transposons, and sends the message on to other cells. (This is a super-simplified version of the story, but you get the point.) Bacteria that have learned to survive a certain type of antibiotic (we call these bacteria “Superbugs”) use this same method to “teach” other bacteria how to also become resistant to that antibiotic.

Why the biology lesson? Because in all respects, transposons and viruses are indistinguishable from each other and many leading scientists now consider them the same thing, which is essentially a message in a bottle, or for you techies, they’re kind of like a USB flash drive. They’re simply carrying information from one place to another. That means what we’ve been interpreting as an “attack” and “hijacking” was actually just an efficient means of intercellular communication and a primary method for our evolution as a species. How does that make you feel about anti-viral medications?

So do viruses cause disease? Perhaps, but I believe that if they do, they only cause mild diseases, and there are always other factors involved. For example, the measles virus seems to also require a vitamin A deficiency in order to produce disease. Colds and flus are prevented with proper nutrition, including vitamins A, C, and D. There’s no real evidence that HIV causes AIDS  and lots of evidence that it couldn’t. (This is the topic of my next post.) Polio was actually caused by pesticides, not the poliovirus. (Another future post.) And recent evidence suggests that all the deaths in the 1918 Spanish flu were actually caused by strep bacteria. So my question is, is it the viruses or the deficiencies that are causing the disease? If it’s both, which is primary? In any case, the jury is still out and more research into this topic is needed. But until then, please, relax about viruses. Instead, focus on your health and mind your “terrain.”

In my last post, I discussed the constant alarms from the CDC saying that “the sky is falling” (i.e. another pandemic virus is on the loose). We also discussed the ineffectiveness and dangers of the flu shot, and a few things you can do that will keep you healthy in a safe, effective, and natural way. Now, I’d like to give you a few more details on the story and tell you, in brief, why I’m no longer afraid of germs.

First of all, why would our healthcare leaders cry “pandemic” at the site of every little outbreak? I think the most likely reason is to help their partners in the pharmaceutical industry sell a lot of drugs. The incestuous ties between these various organizations is probably the only thing in this story that really is pandemic. These cries also help to justify the continued existence of the CDC, and therefore these bureaucrat/germ hunters’s jobs. Remember, very few Americans actually die of infectious diseases these days and that is what the CDC was created for.

Whenever the media goes into a frenzy about a germ, the “sheeple” panic and the government has to respond. The only way they know how to respond to such a threat is to stockpile drugs and vaccines. This makes the drug companies (and their investors) very happy, and very rich. Then, as we discussed in the previous post, the story is dropped, and a year or so later a new germ is brought out for us to fear.

The thing we all need to remember is, much like predatory cats, germs prey on the weak—and your fear of germs and the stress of an impending pandemic definitely weakens your immune system. People with strong immune systems don’t even catch let alone die from these germs. But this is actually an oversimplification. The truth is, for the most part, we don’t catch germs; rather our bodies create them. Let me explain.

Shortly after a plant or animal dies, it begins to decay. (In fact, in the case of long-term illness, the decay process begins much sooner than that, as you’ll soon understand.) Where do you think the bugs that cause the decaying process come from? Do you think they’re ever present in the air and at the moment of death they swoop in like vultures to feast on the rotting flesh? No, those bugs are already present inside of that being.

You see, the human body is not sterile—nor is it meant to be. A healthy human body has approximately 100 trillion bacteria (about 4 pounds) living in symbiosis with the 50 trillion or so cells you consider “you.” That means you have about twice as many bacteria in your body as you have cells! These “normal flora” make up a huge part of your immune and digestive systems.

Since bacteria were first discovered, they have been studied, almost exclusively, as germ carcasses; in other words, when they’re dead. That’s because in order to see them using a normal light microscope, they have to be “fixed” (kept in place by burning them to the slide) and then stained. Without the stain, you can’t see them. Electron microscopes blast their subjects with so many electrons that they cannot survive this process either. So the result is, very few microbiologists have ever seen a living bacteria. Now in school, we did study dead people, but that was just the very beginning of our learning about human biology. If we had limited ourselves to that type of study, we wouldn’t understand very much about how people work including how they move, grow, and develop. And so it is with bacteria.

But there have been a handful of pioneer scientists over the years who have devised other ways of visualizing these tiny germs. Royal Rife, for example, developed a light polarizing technique, which caused germs to vibrate and “glow” under his watchful eye. This took the place of staining, and allowed him to see living bacteria. Gaston Naessens, in Canada, has done something very similar. These two men, along with several other independent researchers, have discovered something that should have turned the world of microbiology upside down. They’ve discovered, by studying living bacteria, that these germs have a life cycle that includes up to 13 different stages! (See figure below.) This is a little-known but observable fact known as pleomorphism. The process is somewhat analogous to a tadpole turning into a frog or a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, however, bacteria go up and down the cycle many times during their lives. Where they are in that cycle depends entirely upon the terrain they inhabit—in other words, what type of food is present.

Used with permission of Gaston Naessens

The simplest/most primitive form these germs take on is known by many names (somatids, microzyma, bions, protits, turquoise bodies), but the newest and currently accepted name is a “prion.” You may have heard of these tiny creatures in association with bovine spongiform encephalopathy or “mad cow disease,” but I believe time will show that this is a mistake, because prions are present in all living and all previously living tissues. Prions are essentially immortal and they are thought to be the essential link between the living and the non-living. But what’s most relevant to this discussion is that when necessary, i.e. when the terrain changes, they can become bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

In the cycle of life, everything has a purpose—germs included. Prions, for example, are absolutely necessary for cells to be able to divide. Without them, life would never have taken hold on this planet. Bacteria have a purpose, too. As I started to say earlier, when bacteria come upon dead tissue, they eat it and turn that tissue back into soil. This is how dead plants and animals decay. This recycling process is absolutely necessary for life to continue on earth. It’s a beautiful, self-sustaining system.

The same thing happens when you’re sick. When you have diseased tissue, bacteria move into that area to start the recycling process. But they’re not CAUSING the problem any more than rats CAUSE garbage. They’re merely opportunists, taking advantage of the situation you’ve created. They’re there because you’ve inadvertently created the perfect terrain for bacteria (rather than prions) to live in, just as leaving garbage about creates the perfect terrain for rats. The cause of the problem, however, was something else, like toxins, stress, too much sugar in the diet, etc. These are the things that weaken tissues and create the right environment for these germs.

There are often symptoms that coincide with this process, which we interpret as sickness. Fever, swollen tonsils, mucous, cough… But these symptoms are actually an integral part of the healing process. Each one serves a purpose and is a part of your body’s infinite wisdom. When your doctor swabs your throat and finds bacteria there, he interprets that as an infection and gives you some bug killer (antibiotics). This alleviates your symptoms, which you interpret as a cure, but it also stops the healing process. The tissue is still diseased and the germs will eventually come back, just as rats will, until the garbage is actually cleaned up. After all, that’s part of their job.

When you think about it, this new germ theory explains a lot of things that the old theory leaves unanswered. For example, if germs are present everywhere, why do some people get sick and others don’t? Why do people get sick more often when they’re eating lots of sweets, drinking alcohol, the weather is cold, they haven’t had any sun on their skin for months, and they’re stressed out from Christmas shopping, traveling, etc.? How do you explain that using the old theory?

I’m around sick people all the time and I basically never get sick. The couple of times that I have gotten sick in the past fifteen years or so have been when I fell off my plan and was under incredible stress. By the way, I’ve never had a flu shot and I haven’t taken an antibiotic since 1985.

Does pleomorphism explain all infective processes? No, but it does explain most of them. Even Pasteur, infamous germaphobe that he was, recognized this at the end of his life. So, do you want to continue to believe the drug makers and their cronies and the people who’ve been studying germ carcasses all their lives, or are you ready to embrace a new germ theory where you have the control?

If you’re ready to take control, go to my website www.HealthIsNatural.com and print out a copy of The 20 Steps To Perfect Health™ It’s totally free. You don’t even have to give me your email! Then, start following as many of the steps as you can. The more of these steps you follow, the less sick you will be and the fewer colds and flus you will suffer.

Next time, we’ll discuss what viruses really are and what they do in your body.

The Flu Shot Blues

Flu season is just around the corner, which means flu shot season is here. Hopefully, you’ve been taking good care of yourself and your immune system primed and ready for “germ warfare.” If you’re not ready, later in this article, we’ll talk about what you can do at this late stage, but regardless of whether you’re ready or not, I don’t recommend you get a flu shot.

If you’ve been paying even a modicum of attention to the flu news for the last several years, you know that the so-called authorities have been hard at work trying to scare everyone on earth into buying into their flu shot scam. This goes back all the way to 1976 with the original swine flu scare where dozens of people died from the shot and nobody actually died of the flu. Last winter, with the swine flu reboot, the story was similar. Lots of side effects from the shots, and one of the mildest flu seasons on record, despite the masses largely rejecting the shot. A few years before, we were all supposed to be scared to death of the bird flu. Before that, SARS was the evil specter.

In each of these cases, the “authorities” claimed that this new flu was either certain to kill millions worldwide, or had the potential to become a deadly worldwide pandemic if we didn’t all roll up our sleeves and accept their “herd strengthening” shots. So far, they’re zero for four. No pandemic, very few deaths actually related to the flu, and those few deaths that have occurred have been in severely immune compromised people more often than not. (By the way, the CDC’s number of “flu deaths,” often estimated at 36,000/year, are drastically over-inflated. That’s because they include in their numbers people who die from pneumonia, which is a different disease altogether, and one for which the flu shot is not protective anyway. This is where the vast majority of their “flu-related deaths” come from.)

Of course, so far, we’ve only discussed the scary sounding “mutant” flus, the ones with some other species in their name or a cool acronym. But let’s not forget all the “communist flus” that have come our way in recent years; you know, the ones with Asian  sounding names like the Shanghai flu, because commie germs are pretty scary too. In fact, if you think about it, almost every year, we hear from the CDC that they’re expecting an exceptionally bad flu season, regardless of the name. This is inevitably followed up with the warning to get your flu shot early. Amazingly, and predictably, this is followed almost immediately by constant media reports of flu shot shortages, which, as any good marketing person will tell you, only increases demand and makes people clamor for the shots even more.

After a few months of this silliness, i.e. once the drug companies have reaped their rewards for scaring us to death, yet again, we hear that the shot was “not a good match” and therefore wasn’t very protective against this year’s flu, thus confirming everyone’s grumblings. When the stats are finally reviewed, months later, we find that there was little or no statistical advantage for those receiving the shot over those who did not get the shot. It’s the same story every year. In fact, a large meta analysis covering many years on this topic has shown that for those most at risk for the flu (the elderly and the very young), the shots do no good at all. And then, there’s the downside.

First of all, many people get the flu right after receiving their flu shot. This is ironic, but somehow not all that surprising. However, there are much scarier possibilities regarding the flu shot than just getting the flu. Until a few years ago, all flu shots had mercury in them, but with all the fuss in the news about mercury causing autism, there’s been a big change there. Today, only most flu shots have mercury in them; that is, there are a few that don’t. Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on the planet. It has a strong affinity for nervous tissue like the brain and has been strongly linked to a variety of neurological conditions like autism, MS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. Another thing to worry about with the flu shot is a disease that’s closely related to polio. In fact, for all intents and purposes, it is polio. It’s called Guillain-Barré Syndrome. Symptoms can include everything from pain to paralysis to death. This disease also seems to be linked with the mercury in the shots. (Polio was also linked to heavy metal poisoning, by the way. It was the elimination of certain heavy metal-laden pesticides that led to polio’s decline in the U.S.; not the polio shot. For more on this fascinating story, read my book Thugs, Drugs and the War on Bugs.)

So, do you think it’s worth the risk to dance with the possibility of any one of these chronic neurological conditions for a zero to 30 percent chance of avoiding a flu?

Now, let me tell you about some things that would be much wiser choices. First, taking vitamin D has been shown to be much more protective than the flu shot. It only makes sense that as we get less sunlight on exposed skin that we might need to supplement the “sunshine vitamin” in the winter. Echinacea has a long history of boosting the immune system, and despite what you may have heard, it can be taken all winter long. Goldenseal is another good herb for immune enhancement. Chiropractic adjustments have also been scientifically proven to give the immune system a nice boost. Standard Process, the whole food supplement company I recommend, has several supplements that help with immune function including Congaplex, Immuplex, and Cataplex AC.

Better yet, however, is to live a healthy life all the way up to and through the flu season. One of the most important bits of dietary advice I can give you is to avoid sugar. Sugar, in all of its forms (with the possible exception of fruit), is disastrous to the immune system and I believe the overconsumption of sugar, along with increased stress and decreased sunlight, greatly contributes to the creation and spread of cold and flu germs. The way it works is thus: Various forms of stress (emotional, nutritional, physical, electrical, chemical) cause your body to become sick. Sick bodies create the perfect environment for germs to live and breed in. Think Field of Dreams: “If you build it, they will come.” In fact, Louis Pasteur recanted his life’s work on his death bed. He said, “The germ is nothing; the terrain is everything.” But not only are you inviting germs in with a sick body, your body actually creates germs in a process known as pleomorphism. This too is fully explained in my book Thugs, Drugs and the War on Bugs.

If it’s already too late and you feel like you’re coming down with something, my best advice is to do what your mother told you—stay warm, drink lots of fluids (water, tea, or soup; not juice, which is high in sugar), get plenty of rest, avoid work/stress, etc. At this point, you’ll want to increase your doses of the herbs and supplements recommended above. Another thing you might add into your regimen is colloidal silver. Do not, I repeat, do not get antibiotics for a cold or flu. Antibiotics only kill bacteria. Colds and flus are not bacterial conditions. (The same holds for most sinus infections, ear infections, and even bronchitis.) You will only mess up your gut by taking antibiotics for these conditions.

Let the Tooth Be Known

I’d like to talk about a toxin that you’re probably exposed to every day. In fact, because we’ve all been completely brainwashed, most people think this toxin is actually good for them. This toxin is more poisonous than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic, and yet, chances are, your city is not only allowing this toxin to be in your tap water, they’re actually dumping this poisonous waste product in and then charging you for it! If you haven’t already guessed, the toxin I’m talking about is fluoride.

Fluoride is not a vitamin or a nutrient of any sort, and it’s not good for your teeth. In fact, it makes teeth and bones brittle, causes dental fluorosis (white mottling of the enamel), and can even cause bone cancer. It also causes neurological problems, learning disabilities, lowered I.Q., increased risk of hip fracture, hypothyroidism, and more.

“In my opinion, fluoride is a carcinogen by any standard we use.”

Dr. William Marcus the Senior Science Advisor and Toxicologist

in the Office of Drinking Water for the EPA

Don’t believe fluoride is a poison? Read the back of your toothpaste tube. If it contains fluoride, there will be a warning telling you to contact the poison control center if you swallow more than a pea sized amount, not to leave children unsupervised while brushing, and to make sure your children don’t swallow it. (In fact, eating half a tube of toothpaste can kill a child.) These warnings are only found on tubes of fluoridated toothpaste.

Fluoride is found naturally in the soil in some areas, but this is not where they get the stuff that’s dumped into our water and put into our toothpaste. No, this stuff is obtained from the scrubber systems on the smokestacks of factories that produce aluminum or phosphate fertilizers. These scrubbers are there to protect the surrounding areas from the affects of fluoride, which would completely poison the air, soil, and water if they were not there. This toxic waste material is collected from these scrubbers, then shipped directly, i.e. untreated, to city water treatment facilities and dumped into our tap water.

Fluoride is very useful in industry because it’s the most reactive element on earth. It’s used to etch glass, refine petroleum products such as gasoline and rocket fuel, make ceramic materials more porous, inhibit fermentation in breweries and wineries, it’s used to make numerous plastics including Teflon, it’s a main ingredient in Freon, it’s used to polish aluminum and refine metals like zinc, iron, and copper, and it’s used heavily in the production of super-phosphate fertilizers. It was also a main ingredient and the motivating factor in the removal of Scotchgard and Stainmaster products from the market.

Fluoride is the key ingredient in most of the widely used insecticides and pesticides such as rat and cockroach poison. It works well against humans too, which is why they use it in nerve gases like Sarin. The Nazi’s used fluoride to sterilize people in their concentration camps. It’s used in most general anesthetics and in certain drugs including Prozac and Cipro, as well as at least nine other drugs that have been removed from the market because of serious side effects, such as Baycol, Propulsid, and “Fen Fen”.

Fluoride is also heavily used in the enrichment of uranium; that is, to separate the different uranium isotopes from each other, leading to the famous yellow cake uranium used in the production of nuclear weapons. Because so much fluoride waste was being created during the Manhattan Project (the development of the first nuclear bomb), government scientists began looking for something useful to do with the leftover poison. This led to some bogus studies being created and the eventual poisoning of our water supplies. This is a very interesting story, which I will cover in detail in a future book, but far too detailed for this arena.

Strange though it may seem, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officially lists fluoride as a “contaminant” that we add to our water. These contaminants are measured in parts per million (ppm) and maximum contaminant levels (MCL) are set. The Journal of the American Medical Association has stated that as little as 1 ppm of fluoride will lead to the mottling of teeth, known as dental fluorosis. At 4 ppm (the amount currently recommended and added to many city’s water supplies), the mottling becomes much worse and the teeth actually become brittle. The same thing happens to bones. Just for reference sake, the MCL for lead is set at 0.015 ppm; for arsenic it’s 0.010 ppm. Since fluoride is more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic, a rational MCL for fluoride would be somewhere between 0.010 and 0.015. Amazingly, the fluoridation of our water, at current levels, allows water consumers to be “medicated” at higher doses than can be legally prescribed by a physician. So, yes, you are being medicated without your consent. This is illegal.

Fluoride is a cumulative poison, too. Only about half of the fluoride we consume is actually excreted by the body. The rest accumulates in the teeth, bones, heart, arteries, thyroid and pineal glands. It also accumulates in the plants and animals that we consume, as well as the ground, rivers, lakes, and oceans. Tea plants, for example, have high levels of fluoride.

Experts have stated that drinking fluoridated water could increase the risk of young boys (who are much more susceptible than girls) getting bone cancer by as much as seven fold. Dr. Dean Burk, Chief Chemist Emeritus of the National Cancer Institute, found that more than 10,000 Americans were dying from cancer each year as a result of fluoridated water. Dr. Burk said, “In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.” This led one expert, and former fluoride promoter to ask a poignant question. He said, in reference to fluoride’s supposed benefit of preventing cavities, “How many cavities would have to be saved to justify the death of one man from bone cancer?” Good question.

By the way, fourteen Nobel Prize winners have come out against water fluoridation.

I recommend you stay far away from anything containing fluoride. If this poison has any positive effect at all, which is highly doubtful, it is as a topical product. That means if your city is fluoridating your water, don’t use it for anything other than mouthwash and for bathing. Also, avoid Teflon pots and pans, buy non-fluoridated toothpaste and tell your dentist you don’t want any fluoride treatments for you or your children.
