Fluoride May Damage the Brain, New Report Says

New York – February 26, 2008 -- "It is not clear that the benefits of adding fluoride to drinking water outweigh risks of neurodevelopment or other effects such as dental fluorosis," according to an Institute for Children's Environmental Health report. (1)

Fluoride chemicals are added to 2/3 of U.S. public water supplies ostensibly to reduce tooth decay. Fluoride is found in dental products, supplements and virtually all foods and beverages (2).

"Excessive fluoride ingestion is known to lower thyroid hormone levels, which is particularly critical for women with subclinical hypothyroidism; decreased maternal thyroid levels adversely affect fetal neurodevelopment," reports a prestigious committee of scientists and health professionals in a “Scientific Consensus Statement on Environmental Agents Associated with Neurodevelopmental Disorders.”

Studies they reviewed and others link fluoride to brain abnormalities and/or IQ deficits. (3)

"The question is what level of exposure results in harmful effects to children. The primary concern is that multiple routes of exposure, from drinking water, food and dental care products, may result in a high enough cumulative exposure to fluoride to cause developmental effects," they write.

"Given the serious consequences of LDDs [learning and developmental disabilities], a precautionary approach is warranted to protect the most vulnerable of our society," the authors caution.

"It's time to stop water fluoridation," says lawyer Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation. “With many neurological diseases, such as autism and ADD, afflicting too many American children, fluoride's dubious promises of less cavities no longer outweigh fluoride's serious health risks," says Beeber.

The National Research Council reviewed fluoride toxicology evidence and reported in March 2006 that studies linking fluoride to lowered IQ are plausible.(3a)

"The real dental dilemma facing American children today is their inability to get dental care," says Beeber. “Eighty-percent of dentists refuse Medicaid patients (4) and 108 million Americans don’t have dental insurance (5),” says Beeber.

Studies show that when fluoridation ends, cavities actually go down. (6)

Please sign the petition urging Congress to end fluoridation and hold hearings about why federal officials continue to promote water fluoridation in the face of growing scientific evidence of harm at http://www.FluorideAlert.org/Congress .

Dr. Phyllis Mullenix was the first U.S. scientist to find evidence that fluoride damages the brain. She published her study in a respected peer-reviewed scientific journal (7) and then was fired because she wouldn’t squelch it.(8)

Developing a Healthy Eating Plan

So you are ready to develop your own healthy eating plan. Congratulations! (Before you run for the “back” button, check this out…)

When "healthy eating plan" comes to mind, probably your second thought is "diet." Let me assure you, that is not what we’re going for here. You will be changing your diet, but not going on a diet. See the difference? You are not going to go hungry, you are not going to starve yourself, you are not going to be a prisoner. As a matter of fact, no one will be pushing you to do something that you don't want to do. You will WANT to do it yourself.

"How is that?" you ask. If you are like most people, you have tried to eat better; for a day- maybe two. It wasn't any fun. Losing the extra pounds for swimsuit season which was months away didn't seem urgent enough to change your diet today, so you put it on the back burner. And there it still is. Swimsuit season is only months away, and THIS year is going to be different!

"How is that?" you ask again. (Boy, you ask a LOT of questions!)

It’s understandable that you have your doubts. You were never able to stay the course, so why should now be any different? Now is different because you now have access to a tool that you did not have before. Here is what we know about eating and food:
  • We eat to make ourselves happy.
  • We do not eat for life.
  • Food is the drug of choice for overweight people.
  • Food either kills us or gives us life.
  • We know what to eat, but we like to eat what makes us happy instead.
  • We don’t feel we are worth eating the right foods, so we sabotage ourselves.
  • People who eat healthy feel they are worth it.
  • We eat when we are bored. Or tired, lonely, depressed, anxious, etc.
  • Food is not the enemy. Our inner dialogue is.

“What the heck is ‘inner dialogue’?” (Again with the questions!)

Simply put, every time we put food into our mouths that we know is not healthy, we have made the decision that it is what we deserve. We are not worth the healthy food. While you may not consciously converse in your mind, there is a thought process that says: “I suck and I don’t deserve the good stuff. I don’t deserve to be healthy. I deserve illness and disease and death.”

That is why diets don’t work. Because changing what you eat does not change the inner dialogue that got you where you are. The good news is that you don’t have to go through years of counseling to change that inner dialogue!

“Well how do I change it?!” you ask anxiously.

You listen.

You don’t need to read a self-help book. You don’t have to follow steps that you know you’ll never get through. All you have to do is listen.

The tool that you will use to REALLY change your eating habits is Eating for Excellent Health Now! from Think Right Now! International, Inc. An audio CD, Eating for Excellent Health Now! is the complete mental conditioning program for developing lifelong healthy eating habits. All you do is pop it in your CD player at home, in the car, or in your computer, and listen. As a matter of fact, you don’t even really have to listen. You just play it in the same room, as much as possible, and your thoughts will begin to change. Maybe this sounds kind of kooky to you. Maybe too kooky. Maybe even kooky enough to work!

The CD does not use subliminal messages. You can hear everything on the CD. It is very easy to listen to while working, cleaning, or just relaxing. To learn more about the program, go there now. Some great things to know is that you will have the CD in hand within days; shipments are sent out immediately. Also, you have a 6 month money back guarantee. Having used this very program myself, I can tell you that instead of returning the program, you will come back for more and buy them for friends and family!

Think Right Now 3 Day Super Bowl Sale

I have some great news that I think you'll appreciate.

Many of you are very familiar with Mike Brescia and Think Right Now's line of Accelerated Success Conditioning Programs. They are phenomenal products that use the technology developed by the famed psychotherapist Georgi Lozanov that allowed people to learn information from 5 to 10 times faster than normal teaching methods.

And so you may already be aware that these programs actually teach you the unconscious empowering thought patterns found in people who are the best at a variety of different life disciplines. In other words, they don't just give you information and leave you on your own. No, they actually install the knowledge into your long-term memory.
So you actually learn to think on a moment-by-moment basis like the people you want to be like, so you automatically make similar decisions and thus, get similar results.
Plus, the whole process is the model of simplicity.
