Merry Christmas


I have nothing really to post, I only want to wish everyone a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I look forward to seeing you all in 2014 and sharing and being shared with 🙂


Why I think people are stupid…..


It really is not their fault, do you know who Charles E. Perkins is?  Before you delve in to this because it is prety long, you can get the short version with this video!

Here is the rest of the story!  Please do your own research, you will learn why the masses walk like zombies thru the grocery store.  I challenge you to do everything you can to eliminate flouride for six months, if you see no changes, it will still be there for you!


Water fluoridation has been a controversial topic for a long time, but much of the general population tend to believe adding fluoride to the water supply is beneficial for everyone. While there is some debate about the intent behind the conspiracy to fluoridate water, most theorists agree that this involuntary medication is toxic.

The first record documenting the fluoridation of drinking water is from Nazi-era Germany during the Second World War. According to Joseph Borkin, it was added to the drinking water in prison camps with the stated reasoning: “mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission.”

This form of chemical medication spread quickly. When the Russians and Germans agreed to split Poland prior to the onset of the war, they shared strategies and information with one another on how to control the Polish territory and people more effectively. The Russians were very impressed with the theories behind water fluoridation, and therefore enacted their own programs.

The conspiracy theories surrounding water fluoridation derive almost exclusively from the immediate post-World War Two period when this information was first introduced to the American public by notable chemists.


Fluoride is a poison

Fact, Fluoride was one of the main chemicals used in the production of the atomic bomb, millions of tons were used and was one of the most toxic chemicals known at the time.(4)

Fluoride is not safe in any dose and is used in pesticides, tooth paste and put in most drinking water supplies. It causes brain and bone damage.

The truth about water fluoridation.

Below from CHARLES E. PERKINS, Chemist, a letter to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee Wisconsin, on 2 October 1954

“I have your letter of September 29 asking for further documentation regarding a statement made in my book, The Truth About Water Fluoridation, to the effect that the idea of water fluoridation was brought to England from Russia by the Russian Communist Kreminoff. “In the 1930`s, Hitler and the German Nazi`s envisioned a world to be dominated and controlled by a Nazi philosophy of pan-Germanism. The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass-control which was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would produce sterility in women, and so on. In this scheme of mass-control, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place. …

“Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individuals power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. [A convenient light lobotomy]

“The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children`s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty.

“When the Nazis under Hitler decided to go into Poland, both the German General Staff and the Russian General Staff exchanged scientific and military ideas, plans, and personnel, and the scheme of mass control through water medication was seized upon by the Russian Communists because it fitted ideally into their plan to communize the world. …

“I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years` research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine–any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.”


Dr. Emmanuel H. Bronner, a former captive in a Nazi prison camp, attempted to expose the global plot to poison the water supplies through several publications.

“As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let me warn: fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide. Don’t do it… Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator knows that it is the most efficient rat-killer… Sodium fluoride is entirely different from organic calcium fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies and provided by nature.”

January, 1998.

Phyllis Mullenix, Ph.D., formerly of Harvard University experienced the wrath of the industry when she walked blindly into the fluoride fray as part of her research program with Harvard’s Department of Neuropathology and Psychiatry. While holding a dual appointment to Harvard and the Forsyth Dental Research Institute, Dr. Mullenix established the Department of Toxicology at Forsyth for the purpose of investigating the environmental impact of substances that were used in dentistry. During that undertaking she was also directed by the institute’s head to investigate fluoride toxicity ……

For her toxicology studies Dr. Mullenix designed a computer pattern recognition system that has been described by other scientists as nothing short of elegant in its ability to study fluoride’s effects on the neuromotor functions of rats.


“By about 1990 I had gathered enough data from the test and control animals,” Mullenix continues, “to realize that fluoride doesn’t look clean.” When she reviewed that data she realized that something was seriously affecting her test animals. They had all (except the control group) been administered doses of fluoride sufficient to bring their blood levels up to the same as those that had caused dental fluorosis [a brittleness and staining of the teeth] in thousands of children. Up to this point, Mullenix explained, fluorosis was widely thought to be the only effect of excessive fluoridation.

The scientist’s first hint that she may not be navigating friendly waters came when she was ordered to present her findings to the National Institute of Dental Research (NIDR) [a division of NIH, the National Institute of Health]. “That’s when the ‘fun’ started,” she said, “I had no idea what I was getting into. I walked into the main corridors there and all over the walls was ‘The Miracle of Fluoride’. That was my first real kick-in-the-pants as to what was actually going on.” The NIH display, she said, actually made fun of and ridiculed those that were against fluoridation. “I thought, ‘Oh great!’ Here’s the main NIH hospital talking about the ‘Miracle of Fluoride’ and I’m giving a seminar to the NIDR telling them that fluoride is neurotoxic!”

What Dr. Mullenix presented at the seminar that, in reality, sounded the death knell of her career was that:

“The fluoride pattern of behavioral problems matches up with the same results of administering radiation and chemotherapy [to cancer patients]. All of these really nasty treatments that are used clinically in cancer therapy are well known to cause I.Q. deficits in children. That’s one of the best studied effects they know of. The behavioral pattern that results from the use of fluoride matches that produced by cancer treatment that causes a reduction in intelligence.”

At a meeting with dental industry representatives immediately following her presentation, Mullenix was bluntly asked if she was saying that their company’s products were lowering the I.Q. of children? “And I told them, ‘basically, yes.'”

The documents obtained by authors Griffiths and Bryson seem to add yet another voice of corroboration to the reduced intelligence effects of fluoride. “New epidemiological evidence from China adds support,” the writers claim, “showing a correlation between low dose fluoride exposure and diminished I.Q. in children.”

Then in 1994, after refining her research and findings, Dr. Mullenix presented her results to the Journal of Neurotoxicology and Teratology, considered probably the world’s most respected publication in that field. Three days after she joyfully announced to the Forsyth Institute that she had been accepted for publication by the journal, she was dismissed from her position. What followed was a complete evaporation of all grants and funding for any of Mullenix’s research. What that means in the left-brain world of scientific research, which is fueled by grants of government and corporate capital, is the equivalent to an academic burial. Her letter of dismissal from the Forsyth Institute stated as their reason for that action that her work was not “dentally related.” [Fluoride research–not dentally related?] The institute’s director stated, according to Mullenix, “they didn’t consider the safety or the toxicity of fluoride as being their kind of science.” Of course, a logical question begs itself at this last statement: why was Dr. Mullenix assigned the study of fluoride toxicity in the first place if it was not “their kind of science”?

Subsequently, she was continually hounded by both Forsyth and the NIH as to the identity of the journal in which her research was to be published. She told The WINDS that she refused to disclose that information because she knew the purpose of this continual interrogation was so that they could attempt to quash its publication.

Almost immediately following her dismissal, Dr. Mullenix said, the Forsyth Institute received a quarter-million dollar grant from the Colgate company. Coincidence or reward?

Her findings clearly detailed the developmental effects of fluoride, pre- and postnatal. Doses administered before birth produced marked hyperactivity in offspring. Postnatal administration caused the infant rats to exhibit what Dr. Mullenix calls the “couch potato syndrome”–a malaise or absence of initiative and activity. One need only observe the numerous children being dosed with Ritalin as treatment for their hyperactivity to draw logical correlations.

Following her dismissal, the scientist’s equipment and computers, designed specifically for the studies, were mysteriously damaged and destroyed by water leakage before she could remove them from Forsyth. Coincidence?

Dr. Mullenix was then given an unfunded research position at Children’s Hospital in Boston, but with no equipment and no money–what for? “The people at Children’s Hospital, for heaven’s sake, came right out and said they were scared because they knew how important the fluoride issue was,” Mullenix said. “Even at Forsyth they told me I was endangering funds for the institution if I published that information.” It has become clear to such as Dr. Mullenix et al, that money, not truth, drives science–even at the expense of the health and lives of the nation’s citizens.

“I got into science because it was fun,” she said, “and I would like to go back and do further studies, but I no longer have any faith in the integrity of the system. I find research is utterly controlled.” If one harbors any doubt that large sums of corporate money and political clout can really provide sufficient influence to induce scientists and respected physicians to endorse potentially harmful treatment for their patients, consider the results published in a January 8th article of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). The Journal revealed their survey of doctors in favor of, and against, a particular drug that has been proven harmful (in this case calcium blockers shown to significantly increase the risk of breast cancer in older women). “Our results,” the Journal said, “demonstrate a strong association between authors’ published positions on the safety of calcium-channel antagonists and their financial relationships with pharmaceutical manufacturers.”

When The WINDS asked Dr. Mullenix where she planned to take her research, she said that she is not hopeful that any place exists that isn’t “afraid of fluoride or printing the truth.”

The end result of the dark odyssey of Phyllis Mullenix, Ph.D., and her journey through the nightmare of the fluoride industry is, essentially, a ruined career of a brilliant scientist because hers was not “their kind of science”.

I have always loved to reuse old stuff.  Really it is a way for me to not be considered a hoarder, but that is a post for another day!  I am always amazed at people in their 70’s and 80’s, they have been reusing items their entire life!  They really do not even know how hip and cool they are by today’s standards.  They do it because they have always done it!  What would you do with some of these??

Lake Natron, Tanzania

Awesome Photography by Nick Brandt

No one knows for certain exactly how they die, but it appears that the extreme reflective nature of the lake’s surface confuses them, and like birds crashing into plate glass windows, they crash into the lake. Lake Natron, located in Tanzania, on the Kenyan border has a concentration of sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate, in addition to magnesite deposits, that result in this deadly phenomenon.
