Monsanto has become a global powerhouse capable of twisting entire governments according to its will. As a result, the company has saturated the global environment with its toxic chemicals, largely through questionable if not outright immoral and illegal means. Carey Gillam, an investigative journalist, dives deep into the backstory of Monsanto and the catastrophic consequences of their influence on the global culture in her book, Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science."

"I've been a journalist my whole adult life, more than 25 years, Gillam says. Most of her career was spent as a reporter with Reuters, a highly respected global news organization. In the 1990s, she was assigned to move to Kansas and  tasked with reporting on issues concerning food and food production.

"I came to Kansas City and immediately started digging in and trying to learn everything about Monsanto, which had then just introduced genetically engineered (GE) crops," she says. "I thought genetic engineering sounded cool I used Roundup; it worked great I came with no preconceived biases.

As a reporter, you really learn to set aside any bias because it's not fair and it's not the way that you accurately learn about and report information. The book is really the culmination of 20 years of being heavily involved in this world and spending a lot of time with Monsanto, and with Dow, DuPont and farmers.

Glyphosate Roundup is sort of the vehicle for my book. Monsanto and the story of how they pushed this weed killer to become the most widely used in the world [was] strategically by design The point I hope this book makes is that glyphosate and Monsanto are really the poster children for a much larger problem a corporate push for pesticide dependence "

Shocking Study Shows 170 MILLION Americans Drinking Radioactive Water and Govt is Hiding It Natural Blaze

By Matt Agorist

A damning report from the Environmental Working Group has just revealed that drinking water for more than 170 million Americans in all 50 states contains radioactive elements that are shown to cause cancer. Not only does the report expose the deadly levels of radiation but it also shows that officials have been actively covering it up.

EWGs investigation consisted of testing the water supplies of nearly 50,000 public water systems from all 50 states. Researchers found that from 2010 to 2015, more than 22,000 utilities in all 50 states reported radium in the treated water delivered to customers taps.

Only a small percentage of the water supplies exceeded what the Environmental Protection Agency considers safe; however, their standards for legal radiation limits are more than 40 years old. EWG pointed out that, according to more recent standards, like those set in 2006 in California, nearly 100 percent of tested water supplies failed. These findings make Flint, Michigan look like childs play.

Most radioactive elements in tap water come from natural sources, but that doesnt take away the need to protect people through stronger standards and better water treatment, said Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., EWGs senior science advisor for childrens environmental health. Millions of Americans are drinking water with potentially harmful levels of radioactive elements, but the outdated federal standards mean many people dont know about the risk they face when they turn on the tap.

If you dont happen to know, for most folks, cell phone use has become an addictionreally!  How upset do you become if you cannot find your cell phone?  How long can you go without checking your cell phone for a text?

According to a research study titled Smartphone addiction creates imbalance in brain, study suggests published November 30, 2017 by Radiological Society of North America,

Researchers have found an imbalance in the brain chemistry of young people addicted to smartphones and the internet.

More study is needed to understand the clinical implications of the findings, but Dr. Seo believes that increased GABA in the anterior cingulate gyrus in internet and smartphone addiction may be related to the functional loss of integration and regulation of processing in the cognitive and emotional neural network.

The good news is GABA to Glx ratios in the addicted youth significantly decreased or normalized after cognitive behavioral therapy.

The increased GABA levels and disrupted balance between GABA and glutamate in the anterior cingulate cortex may contribute to our understanding the pathophysiology of and treatment for addictions, Dr. Seo said.

Dietary broccoli impacts microbial community structure and attenuates chemically induced colitis. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  J Funct Foods. 2017 Oct ;37:685-698. Epub 2017 Sep 1. PMID: 29242716 Abstract Title:  Dietary Broccoli Impacts Microbial Community Structure and Attenuates Chemically Induced Colitis in Mice in an Ah receptor dependent manner. Abstract:  Consumption of broccoli mediates numerous chemo-protective benefits through the intake of phytochemicals, some of which modulate aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) activity. Whether AHR activation is a critical aspect of the therapeutic potential of dietary broccoli is not known. Here we administered isocaloric diets, with or without supplementation of whole broccoli (15% w/w), to congenic mice expressing the high-affinity Ahrb/b or low-affinity Ahrd/d alleles, for 24 days and examined the effects on AHR activity, intestinal microbial community structure, inflammatory status, and response to chemically induced colitis. Cecal microbial community structure and metabolic potential were segregated according to host dietary and AHR status. Dietary broccoli associated with heightened intestinal AHR activity, decreased microbial abundance of the family Erysipelotrichaceae, and attenuation of colitis. In summary, broccoli consumption elicited an enhanced response in ligand-sensitive Ahrb/b mice, demonstrating that in part the beneficial aspects of dietary broccoli upon intestinal health are associated with heightened AHR activity.

PMID:  Mol Biol (Mosk). 2017 Sep-Oct;51(5):841-848. PMID: 29116072 Abstract Title:  [Treatment with anti-cancer agents results in profound changes in lncRNA expression in colon cancer cells]. Abstract:  Using real-time RT-PCR in combination with bioinformatics, we have shown for the first time that the treatment of HCT-116 and HT-29 colon cancer cells with two anti-cancer agents (doxycycline or 3,3'-diindolylmethane) results in profound changes in the intracellular content of several lncRNAs (by up to 100 times). Since many of these RNAs are secreted by tumors into the bloodstream, the obtained results provide a basis for developing more sensitive protocols for serological monitoring of tumor relapse and metastasis, as well as for search of new anti-cancer drugs.

Our Sexualized Culture and The Prejudiced Roots of Psychiatry Mad In America

We live in a sex-normativity scenario incapable of challenging clichd phrases like sex is health.'

~Vivyane Garbelini, Asexuality: Recognizing the Invisible

Asexuality Pride Flag

Prejudice is inseparable from the roots of psychiatry. If a diagnosis is an avenue in which the world can perceive a sick mind, an illness, then this means all with a mind are dictated by the psychiatric systems threshold: every behavior, every thought, every action. The psychiatric system decides whether or not you can trust yourself or if anyone can trust you. The psychiatric system decides what communities of people are deserving of socioeconomic exile, isolation, and physical detainment. The psychiatric systems roots and origins are of white, cisgender, heterosexual, Christian men supporting the maintenance of dictatorship for this group of people and this group of people alone. All others under its traumatic widespread prejudice are conditioned to live as a form of sub-humanity and/or object. The entire history of psychiatry stands on proving the intellectual inferiority of black people, women, and queer people.

When Your Antidepressant Isnt as Safe as You Think Mad In America

In this piece for Psych Central, Dr. Viatcheslav Wlassoff discusses some of the safety issues and adverse effects of antidepressants.

When it comes to side effects, anticholinergic side effects like dryness of mouth, blurring of vision, and dizziness are common with most antidepressants. Most of them may also alter appetite and sexual function, and cause an upset stomach, joint and muscular pains, problems with drug interactions, irritability, mood changes, movement disorders and the risk of falling in the elderly, and much more. Moreover, these side effects continue to persist when the drugs are used long term.

The development of tolerance and withdrawal symptoms are widespread. Discontinuation syndrome can be really bad in many cases.

Stubborn, Optimistic, Purposeful People Live Longer Articles

By Dr. Mercola

No matter where you live or how old you are, you're probably interested in living longer. If you're reading this, chances are you're in an ever-increasing quest to live better, eat better and generally take better care of yourself. But how might someone's mental outlook influence their longevity? According to new research1 published in International Psychogeriatrics, living longer is not necessarily just a matter of chance. Approaching life with purpose and optimism has been shown to make a significant difference in a life well lived.

It takes intestinal fortitude to live in a world where it feels, in many respects, that to do what's best for you, you have to row against the tide. While many simply go with the flow, it takes courage and, yes, possibly a stubborn streak, to hold out for excellence and perseverance; to live life with purpose and not just what floats your boat at the moment.

Researchers from Sapienza University in Rome and the University of California San Diego collaborated to study people living in nine remote villages in Southern Italy who lived, in some cases, well past the age of 90 and even to 101.

Their health was compared with that of family members whose ages ranged from 51 to 75 years. One fascinating thing the scientists found was that, although some of the younger people may have been in better physical shape, the oldsters enjoyed better mental health. One may wonder how the researchers went about assessing the outcomes of the data they gathered. Newsweek noted:

"Data was gathered using both measurable assessments for mental and physical health, including factors like optimism and depression, in addition to interviews that gathered personal stories about traumatic life events and beliefs. The team also analyzed the younger participants on the same rating scales but also asked them to describe their older relatives' personalities."2

How Being Stubborn Can 'Ground' You

Characteristics like having a positive attitude contributed to a more upbeat mindset for the older people involved in the study, the assessments determined. Newsweek quoted study co-author Dilip Jeste, from the University of San Diego School of Medicine and director of its Center for Healthy Aging, who explained:

"The main themes that emerged from our study, and appear to be the unique features associated with better mental health of this rural population, were positivity, work ethic, stubbornness and a strong bo...

By Dr. Mercola

Its unfortunate how many fail to fully appreciate the importance oral health has on their overall health. The fact of the matter is, the delicate balance of bacteria in your mouth is as important to your health as your gut microbiome. When certain bacteria become overabundant, various oral problems start to develop.

Periodontal disease, for example, which affects the soft tissues and bone, is initiated by an increase in Porphyromonas gingivalis, which impairs your immune response, while dental caries had been causally linked to Streptococcus mutans.1 Your oral health, in turn, impacts the rest of your body, and can have a significant impact on your disease risk.

Type 2 diabetes and periodontal disease are strongly connected, for example.2 Research also shows that failing to brush twice a day increases your risk of dementia by as much as 65 percent, compared to brushing three times a day, and good oral hygiene has been shown to lower your risk of pneumonia by about 40 percent.3

When bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease enter into your circulatory system, your liver releases C-reactive proteins, which have inflammatory effects. Inflammation, in turn, is known to be a disease-causing force leading to most chronic illness. For example, inflamed and diseased gums may raise your risk of a fatal heart attack by up to 10 times.

Whats worse, according to Dr. Gerry Curatola, founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry, heart attacks related to gum disease are fatal 9 times out of 10. So, a major part of oral health is attending to your oral microbiome. If youve been lax about your oral health, make this the year you grab the proverbial bull by the horn and really make an effort to address the...

Ginger may have anti- avian influenza virus H9N2 potential. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Pak J Pharm Sci. 2017 Jul ;30(4):1341-1344. PMID: 29039335 Abstract Title:  Anti-avian influenza virus H9N2 activity of aqueous extracts of Zingiber officinalis (Ginger) and Allium sativum (Garlic) in chick embryos. Abstract:  In the present study, anti-Avian influenza virus H9N2 activity of aqueous extracts (5, 10, 15, 20, 25%) of Zingiber officinalis and Allium sativum was evaluated. Embryo-toxicity was evaluated by histopathological scoring of Chorio-allantoic membrane of chick embryos. Cytotoxicity of extracts was determined by MTT assay on Vero cells. Aqueous extract of ginger had antiviral activity at 10, 15, 20 and 25% while garlic had activity at 15, 20 and 25%. Histopathological scoring of chorio-allantoic membrane for aqueous extracts (5, 10, 15, 20, 25%) of ginger (0.660.57, 1.330.57, 1.660.57, 2.660.57, 3.660.57, respectively) and garlic (1.000.00, 1.330.57, 2.000.00, 2.330.57, 3.660.57, respectively) was concentration dependant. MTT assay revealed cytotoxicity of both plants was also concentration dependent. Extracts of ginger (5, 10, 15, 20,25%) had lower cytotoxicity (71, 59, 28, 22, 0 % cell survival, respectively) as compared to garlic (61, 36. 20, 11, 3% cell survival, respectively). Overall results revealed that concentration of aqueous extract of ginger (10%), showing antiviral activity against H9N2, was less toxic to vero cells(>50% cell survival). It is insinuated that ginger may have anti- Avian influenza virus H9N2 potential and its active compounds needs further investigations.

Mechanism of action of topical garlic on wound healing. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Dermatol Surg. 2017 Oct 26. Epub 2017 Oct 26. PMID: 29077629 Abstract Title:  Mechanism of Action of Topical Garlic on Wound Healing. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Allicin, the active component of garlic, has been shown to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Garlic has also been used historically by many cultures to heal wounds. Several animal studies have shown that garlic extracts increase the rate of wound healing and decrease the rate of infection.OBJECTIVE: Fibroblasts play a key role in wound healing. Here we hypothesize that fibroblasts are being activated by allicin, leading to more organized and rapid wound repair.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Six rats were each given 2 surgical wounds. One side was treated with a 30% garlic ointment while the other was treated with Vaseline for two weeks. A biopsy was taken from each scar site and histopathology with Immunohistochemistry was performed to quantify the number of fibroblasts and proliferating fibroblasts in each site.RESULTS: The wound biopsies had more proliferating fibroblasts in the scars treated with the 30% garlic ointment than in the scars treated with Vaseline with a p-value of 0.0175 at two weeks post op and 0.081 at 6 week post op.CONCLUSION: This data tells us that allicin is acting on fibroblasts as there were more proliferating fibroblasts in the garlic treated sites than in the other sites.

6 Dangers of Conventional Cookware + 4 Best Types of Nontoxic Cookware


If youre a regular reader of my website, then you probably already know a little about what healthy foods to eat and what toxic foods to avoid, but have you ever given your cookware any thought? Are you currently using nontoxic cookware? I have to warn you the products youre using to cook healthy food on a daily basis just may be toxic!
We live in the age of convenience and the age of fast. We dont even want to be bothered taking the time to melt some butter or coconut oil on our pans so food doesnt stick so we opt for nonstick cookware. Some of the most popular and widely used brands of cookware are nonstick and known to contain a chemical that has been linked to major health concerns including cancer. (1, 2)
Im sure youll agree that using unhealthy cookware to cook healthy food simply doesnt make any sense. Are you being poisoned by your cookware? Lets take a look at the toxic cookware you should be avoiding and the safest cookware you should start using instead today!

Why Cookware Is Important (Hint: Dont Be Cheap!)
You may be thinking that your pots and pans do the job they need to do or they were pricey so they have to be good, but are you actually using healthy cookware?
For example, do you know that using nonstick pots and pans to heat your food could be putting your health in danger? Its true. Nonstick cookware pretty much always contains a manmade chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid, also known as PFOA or C8. According to the American Cancer Society, PFOA has the potential to be a health concern because it can stay in the environment and in the human body for long periods of time. Studies hav...

It was the difference between heaven and hell Veterans on TM Relieved from PTSD Natural Blaze

 

By Natural Blaze

After one month of transcendental meditation, 80 percent had symptoms reduced to below the clinical level.

Wonderful news for those suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after harrowing events  practicing the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique, can offer a powerful reprieve according to a new study published in Military Medicine.

The 41 veterans and 5 active-duty soldiers in the study had been diagnosed with clinical levels of PTSD, as measured by the PTSD Checklist-Civilian (PCL-5). After one month, 87% had a clinically significant decrease of more than 10 points. The reduction was so great that 37 participants (80%) had their symptoms reduced to below the clinical level, meaning that they were no longer considered to have a disorder.

This mini-review highlighted the protective roles of garlic against alcoholic liver disease and the potential mechanisms. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Food Chem Toxicol. 2018 Jan ;111:467-473. Epub 2017 Dec 5. PMID: 29208504 Abstract Title:  Hepatoprotective effects of garlic against ethanol-induced liver injury: A mini-review. Abstract:  Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a progressively aggravated liver disease with a diverse spectrum from steatosis to hepatitis, fibrosis, and cirrhosis. Epidemiological studies reveal that alcohol is one of the major causes of advanced liver disease in Europe, United States, and China. Despite the considerable harm, progression in ALD research is slow and the current therapies for ALD have less efficient. Garlic (Allium sativum) has been used as a flavoring agent and also a folk medicine since ancient time. Along with the prosperity in the use of herbal medicines for the treatment of human diseases in recent decades, a series of studies have focused on the beneficial effects of garlic against ALD. This mini-review highlighted the protective roles of garlic against ALD and the potential mechanisms.

Arizona Court Refuses to Return Children Kidnapped from Nevada by Arizona Social Workers Back to Their Parents Health Impact News

Shoars children meme we will never forget

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

Parents living in Nevada want their children back home. The children who were taken out of Nevada by Arizona social workers claim they have been abused in Arizona foster care, and want to go back to their parents. They even filed their own lawsuit, the first ever in Arizona, but an Arizona court has ruled against them.

An Arizona appeals court has denied the parental rights of Nevada residents Jeff and Tabitha Shoars. Almost 17 months ago, Child Protective Services from Arizona crossed state lines and seized 6 of their children from Las Vegas, Nevada.

All along, they have hoped and prayed for the justice which they felt would surely occur if only judges looked at the actual evidence instead of the hearsay and lies from social workers from Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS).

Instead, like so many other parents who have fought Arizona DCS, they were devastated to hear yet another court deny them their parental rights to the children they brought into the world.

Tabitha Shoars heart breaks for her children:

No kid deserves this! What Arizona and every other CPS is doing to families they dont deserve this!

My poor babies!

This is the latest chapter in the Shoars familys heartbreaking saga.

On August 15, 2014, their 3 year old daughter Khloe died after the children were left in the care of a babysitter for the evening.

Diallyl trisulfide inhibits breast cancer stem cells via suppression of Wnt/-catenin pathway. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  J Cell Biochem. 2017 Dec 15. Epub 2017 Dec 15. PMID: 29243835 Abstract Title:  Diallyl Trisulfide Inhibits Breast Cancer Stem Cells via Suppression of Wnt/-catenin Pathway. Abstract:  Cancer stem cells (CSCs) play a central role in the development of breast cancer. The canonical Wnt/-catenin signal pathway is critical for maintaining CSCs characteristics. Diallyl trisulfide (DATS), a natural organosulfur compound from the garlic, exhibits effective antitumor properties. However, the role of DATS in regulating breast CSCs activity and the underlying molecular mechanisms remainobscure. In the present study, we reported that DATS efficiently inhibited the viability of breast CSCs as evidenced by reducing turmorspheres formation, decreasing the expression of breast CSCs markers (CD44, ALDH1A1, Nanog and Oct4), as well as inhibiting proliferation and inducing apoptosis. Furthermore, we showed that DATS suppressed the activity of Wnt/-catenin pathway, while LiCl-triggered Wnt/-catenin activation diminished DATS inhibition on breast CSCs. Taken together, our results illustrated that DATS suppressed breast CSCs through inhibiting Wnt/-catenin pathway activation. These novel findings could provide new insights into the molecular mechanisms of breast CSCs regulation as well as its target intervention and might provide new strategies for preventing and treating breast cancers.

Diallyl sulfide may be effective in reducing ethanol induced injury of cells. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Drug Chem Toxicol. 2018 Jan 10:1-12. Epub 2018 Jan 10. PMID: 29319385 Abstract Title:  Evaluating the effect of diallyl sulfide on regulation of inflammatory mRNA expression in 3T3L1 adipocytes and RAW 264.7 macrophages during ethanol treatment. Abstract:  Diallyl sulfide (DAS) has been studied extensively for its alleged role as an anticancer and protective agent. Alcohol influences and effects on human health have been extensively studied. However, investigations toward developing and testing therapeutic agents that can reduce the tissue injury caused by ethanol are scarce. In this backdrop, this study was designed to explore the potential effect of DAS in reducing alcohol induced damage of 3T3L1 adipocytes and RAW 264.7 macrophages. MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide] assay was performed to determine the DAS effect on cell viability. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) production was assessed by flow cytometer. Expression of inflammatory genes was studied by the qRT-PCR method. Our study results showed that DAS at concentrations less than 200M was not toxic to the cells and the viability of ethanol-exposed 3T3L1 adipocyte cells was found to be significantly increased when ethanol-exposed cells were treated with DAS. Further, treatment of ethanol-exposed 3T3L1 cells with 100M DAS for 24h was found to reduce ethanol induced ROS production, expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and enhance anti-inflammatory cytokine production in the cells. Also, 100M DAS was found to increase the expression of M2 phenotype-specific genes in ethanol-exposed RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Further, 100M DAS also improved the levels of lipid accumulation in 3T3L1 adipocytes that was down-regulated by ethanol exposure. Taken together, our study results imply that DAS may be effective in reducing ethanol induced injury of cells thereby suggesting its potential to be used in drug formulations.

Health Impact News

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote to Acting Secretary Eric Hargan of the Department of the Health and Human Services (HHS), Commissioner Scott Gottlieb of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Director Jerry Menikoff of the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) concerning news reports of apparently unsanctioned human research testing conducted by Southern Illinois University (SIU) professor William Halford which put individuals at extreme health risk.

Testing involving the use of human subjects in the U.S. is regulated by what is known as the Common Rule. Among other regulations, these include minimizing risk to the subject, selecting subjects equitably, receiving informed consent, continual monitoring and respecting privacy.

News reports indicate that Halford may have violated nearly every requirement of the Common Rule. Emails from the professor reportedly stated that it would be suicide if the manner in which he conducted the research were to be made public.

In his letter to Hargan, Gottlieb and Menikoff, Grassley is seeking information about the status of any ongoing investigation, if any determination has been made as to Halfords culpability, what corrective action is being taken to ensure proper oversight of research on human subjects, an explanation of the reporting process for potentially unapproved research and data about complaints of unapproved research.

These results demonstrate that diallyl sulfide ameliorates cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Clin Exp Pharmacol Physiol. 2017 Dec 20. Epub 2017 Dec 20. PMID: 29266336 Abstract Title:  Diallyl sulfide alleviates cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in Rats via suppressing NF-B downstream inflammatory proteins and p53/Puma signaling pathway. Abstract:  Despite being a potent anticancer drug, nephrotoxicity is an adverse effect which renders the clinical use of cisplatin (Cis) limited. The protective role of diallyl sulfide (DAS); a naturally occurring organo-sulfide, present in garlic, in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity has been reported earlier. However, the mechanism through which DAS exerts its nephroprotective activity remains elusive. The aim of the current study was to elucidate the possible mechanisms underlying the reno-protective effect of DAS in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats. DAS was given at two dose levels; 50 and 100 mg/kg, orally for 4 consecutive days, starting one hour after administration of single dose of cisplatin (3.5 mg/kg, i.p.). The Cis-induced elevation in serum urea and creatinine, degree of histopathological alterations was significantly ameliorated in cisplatin groups co-treated with DAS. In addition, DAS significantly restored Cis-depleted glutathione (GSH) content and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and attenuated Cis-elevated Malondialdehyde (MDA) level. Also, DAS significantly reduced Cis-increased renal expression of nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-B) and subsequent proinflammatory mediators; tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-), interleukin-1 (IL-1), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in kidney tissues. Moreover, co-treatment with DAS significantly inhibited Cis-increased caspase-8 and-9 levels. Additionally, DAS significantly mitigated Cis-induced protein expression of p53, Puma, and Bax while, it significantly restored Cis-reduced protein expression of Bcl-xL compared to the Cis group. In conclusion, these results demonstrate that DAS ameliorates cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats through enhancement of antioxidant defense, reduction of inflammatory cytokine tissue levels as well as inhibition of apoptosis via p53/Puma signaling pathway.

Black garlic may play a role as an antioxidant agent that prevents the prefrontal cortex from glutamate-induced oxidative stress. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Drug Chem Toxicol. 2017 Dec 27:1-6. Epub 2017 Dec 27. PMID: 29280389 Abstract Title:  The effects of black garlic on the working memory and pyramidal cell number of medial prefrontal cortex of rats exposed to monosodium glutamate. Abstract:  Monosodium glutamate-induced exitotoxicity causes oxidative stress in many brain areas, including the medial prefrontal cortex. The ethanolic garlic (Allium sativum) extract is considered as a neuroprotective substance. The present study aimed at investigating the effects of the ethanolic fermented garlic extract on the working memory and the pyramidal cell number of the medial prefrontal cortex of adolescent male Wistar rats exposed to monosodium glutamate (MSG). Twenty-five rats were randomly divided into five groups. The C- group was given 0.9% NaCl solution. The C+group was given 2mg/g bw of MSG. The T1, T2, and T3 groups were given MSG and garlic extract (0.0125, 0.025, and 0.05mg/g bw, respectively). All treatments were conducted for 10days. The working memory capability of the rats was measured using Y-maze test. The total number of pyramidal cells of the medial prefrontal cortex was estimated using physical fractionator method. The working memory performances of the T1, T2, and T3 groups were significantly better than that of the C+group. There were no significant differences between groups in the estimated total number of pyramidal cell of medial prefrontal cortex. The MSG may not cause the death of neurons, but it may modify neuronal architectures that are sufficient to disrupt memory functions. Black garlic may play a role as an antioxidant agent that prevents the prefrontal cortex from glutamate-induced oxidative stress. It is concluded that the ethanolic fermented garlic extract prevented the working memory impairment following MSG administration.

Antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of various Greek garlic genotypes. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Food Chem. 2018 Apr 15 ;245:7-12. Epub 2017 Oct 16. PMID: 29287429 Abstract Title:  Antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of various Greek garlic genotypes. Abstract:  Recent studies show a significant variation in antioxidant and antimicrobial properties between the various garlic genotypes mostly due to differences in chemical composition and bioactive compounds content. The aim of the present study was to evaluate antioxidant properties and antimicrobial activity of garlics collected from the main cultivation areas of Greece, as well as to correlate this activity with their total phenolics content. Genotype G5 showed the highest total phenolics content, which was significantly correlated with the lowest EC50 values for all the tested antioxidant activity assays. Antimicrobial activity was significant, especially against the bacteria Proteus mirabilis and Antibiotic resistant Escherichia coli. In conclusion, significant variation was observed between the studied garlic genotypes, indicating the importance of both growing conditions and genotype on bioactive properties of dry garlic bulbs. This variation could be further exploited in breeding programs in order to select elite genotypes with increased bioactive properties.

Garlic powder could attenuate the deteriorating effect of HFD on in vivo hippocampal long term potentiation in the granular cells of the dentate gyrus. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Metab Brain Dis. 2018 Jan 2. Epub 2018 Jan 2. PMID: 29294234 Abstract Title:  Effect of garlic powder on hippocampal long-term potentiation in rats fed high fat diet: an in vivo study. Abstract:  The objective of this study was to determine the relation between the chronic consumption of garlic powder in combination with high-fat diet (HFD) on long term potentiation (LTP) in the dentate gyrus (DG) of rat hippocampus. Male rats were divided to 4 groups, control with the standard diet, control with a standard diet plus garlic, high-fat diet (HFD) group and high-fat diet with garlic. Following 6 months of controlled dietary in each experimental group, the rats were anesthetized with i.p. injection of ketamine and xylazin (100 and 2.5 mg/kg, respectively), and placed into a stereotaxic apparatus for surgery, electrode implantation and field potential recording. The population spike (PS) amplitude and slope of excitatory post synaptic potentials (EPSP) were measured in the DG area of adult rats in response to stimulation applied to the perforant path (PP) (by 400 Hz tetanization). The results showed that garlic increased EPSP slope and PS amplitude respect to HFD group. It was suggested that the garlic powder administration could attenuate the deteriorating effect of HFD on in vivo hippocampal LTP in the granular cells of the DG.

The beneficial effects of allicin in chronic kidney disease are comparable to losartan. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Int J Mol Sci. 2017 Sep 16 ;18(9). Epub 2017 Sep 16. PMID: 28926934 Abstract Title:  The Beneficial Effects of Allicin in Chronic Kidney Disease Are Comparable to Losartan. Abstract:  Recent studies suggest that allicin may play a role in chronic kidney disease (CKD), reducing hypertension and oxidative stress and improving renal dysfunction. In the present study, CKD was induced by 5/6 nephrectomy and the animals were divided into four treatment groups as follows: control (C), CKD, CKD+allicin (40 mg/kg pathway oral) (CKDA), and CKD+Losartan (20 mg/kg) (CKDL). After CKD induction, the rats developed hypertension from week 3 to the end of the study. This was associated with increased creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels in serum, increased albuminuria, increased urinary excretion of N-acetyl--d-glucosaminidase (NAG), increased nephrin expression, and incrased histological alterations in the cortex. The levels of angiotensin receptors and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) were decreased in the renal cortex from the CKD group. Otherwise, lipid and protein oxidation were higher inthe CKD group than in the control group. A disturbance was observed in the expression levels of the nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2/Kelch ECH associating protein 1 system (Nrf2/keap1) and the antioxidant enzymes catalase, superoxide dismutase, and heme oxygenase-1. Allicin or losartan treatments relieved renal dysfunction, hypertension, and oxidative stress. In addition, both treatments showed the same efficacy on the expression of angiotensin receptors, the nephrin, Nrf2/keap1 pathway, and eNOS. Further in silico analyses suggest that allicin and losartan could have a common mechanism involving interaction with AT1 receptors. Allicin showed antihypertensive, antioxidant, and nephroprotective effects. The beneficial effects showed by allicin are similar, or even better, than those of losartan. In fact, the effect of allicin on blood pressure and renal function is comparableto reductions seen with losartan, a prescription drug commonly used as a first-line therapy.

PMID:  Oncotarget. 2017 Nov 28 ;8(61):104492-104507. Epub 2017 Nov 10. PMID: 29262656 Abstract Title:  Neuroprotective effects of allicin on ischemia-reperfusion brain injury. Abstract:  Background: Ischemia-reperfusion brain injury (IRBI) is an important cause for mortality and morbidity. Studies on humans and animals showed that oxidative stress (OS) plays a crucial role in ischemic stroke with or without reperfusion. Allicin is reported to be able to attenuate OS and has neuroprotective effects on rabbits' ischemia-reperfusion spinal cord injury.Aim: To explore whether Allicin pretreatment has neuroprotective effects on IRBI in mice.Methods and results: Transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) was conducted to induce IRBI in mice. The mice were pretreated with either Allicin (MCAOA) or normal saline in the same volume (MCAONS). Sham-operated groups [Allicin group (SOA) and normal saline group (SONS)] were also set. Blood pressure and cerebral blood flow measurements revealed comparable hemodynamics. Via brain MRI and neuronal nuclear antigen (NeuN) immune-histochemical staining, MCAOA mice had a significantly reduced stroke size than MCAONS mice (P

Artificial sweeteners associated with a higher risk of stroke and dementia new research findings two

Artificial sweeteners associated with a higher risk of stroke and dementia
Posted by: Lori Alton, staff writer in Food News January 9, 2018 2 Comments





(NaturalHealth365) Rates of Alzheimers disease the sixth leading cause of death in the United States are increasing by leaps and bounds. For example, the Alzheimers Association recently reported that death rates from this disease increased by a stunning 89 percent in the years between 2000 and 2014. Unfortunately, these same conventional health organizations ignore the direct (negative) impact that artificial sweeteners (plus other toxic food ingredients) have on brain function and the cardiovascular system.
And, lets not forget, stroke another leading cause of death continues to claim over 130,000 lives yearly in the U.S. Now, alarming new research shows that consuming a single can of artificially sweetened soda (per day) is associated with a higher risk of both these killer conditions.
Revealing scientific study: The truth about artificial sweeteners
The community-based study, known as the Framingham Heart Study Offspring cohort, involved 4,372 participants over age 45 and showed that daily consumption of a can or bottle of artificially sweetened soft drink was associated with a 2.96 greater risk of stroke and a 2.89 greater risk of Alzheimers disease and other forms of dementia.
In other words, even modest daily amounts of artificially sweetened soda appeared to virtually triple the risk of developing the pair of dangerous conditions a shocking finding, and one which may certainly account for the rising rates of both diseases.
Researchers noted that the study, which was published in Stroke in April, was the first to examine a link between artificial sweeteners and dementia. It was not the first, however, to highlight the potential dangers of artificially...

Kaempferol inhibits the primary attachment phase of biofilm formation in Staphylococcus aureus. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Front Microbiol. 2017 ;8:2263. Epub 2017 Nov 15. PMID: 29187848 Abstract Title:  Kaempferol Inhibits the Primary Attachment Phase of Biofilm Formation in Staphylococcus aureus. Abstract:  The ability to form biofilms on surfaces makes Staphylococcus aureus the main pathogenic factor in implanted medical device infections. The aim of this study was to discover a biofilm inhibitor distinct from the antibiotics used to prevent infections resulting from S. aureus biofilms. Here, we describe kaempferol, a small molecule with anti-biofilm activity that specifically inhibited the formation of S. aureus biofilms. Crystal violet (CV) staining and fluorescence microscopy clearly showed that 64g/ml kaempferol inhibited biofilm formation by 80%. Meanwhile, the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and growth curve results indicated that kaempferol had no antibacterial activity against the tested bacterial strain. Kaempferol inhibited the primary attachment phase of biofilm formation, asdetermined by a fibrinogen-binding assay. Moreover, a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) assay and quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) analyses revealed that kaempferol reduced the activity of S. aureus sortaseA (SrtA) and the expression of adhesion-related genes. Based on these results, kaempferol provides a starting point for the development of novel anti-biofilm drugs, which may decrease the risk of bacterial drug resistance, to prevent S. aureus biofilm-related infections.

Kaempferol inhibits the migration and invasion of rheumatoid arthritis fibroblast-like synoviocytes. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2017 Dec 18 ;55:174-182. Epub 2017 Dec 18. PMID: 29268189 Abstract Title:  Kaempferol inhibits the migration and invasion of rheumatoid arthritis fibroblast-like synoviocytes by blocking activation of the MAPK pathway. Abstract:  In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) play an essential role in cartilage destruction. Aggressive migration and invasion by FLSs significantly affect RA pathology. Kaempferol has been shown to inhibit cancer cell migration and invasion. However, the effects of kaempferol on RA FLSs have not been investigated. Our study aimed to determine the effects of kaempferol on RA both in vitro and in vivo. In vitro, cell migration and invasion were measured using scratch assays and the Boyden chamber method, respectively. The cytoskeletal reorganization of RA FLSs was evaluated by immunofluorescence staining. Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) levels were measured by real-time PCR, and protein expression levels were measured by western blotting. In vivo, the effects of kaempferol were evaluated in mice with CIA. The results showed that kaempferol reduced migration, invasion and MMP expression in RA FLSs. In addition, we demonstrated that kaempferol inhibited reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton during cell migration. Moreover, kaempferol dramatically suppressed tumor necrosis factor (TNF)--induced MAPK activation without affecting the expression of TNF- receptors. We also demonstrated that kaempferol attenuated the severity of arthritis in mice with CIA. Taken together, these results suggested that kaempferol inhibits the migration and invasion of FLSs in RA by blocking MAPK pathway activation without affecting the expression of TNF- receptors.

Treatment with phytoestrogens reversed triclosan and bisphenol A-induced anti-apoptosis in breast cancer cells. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Biomol Ther (Seoul). 2018 Jan 9. Epub 2018 Jan 9. PMID: 29310425 Abstract Title:  Treatment with Phytoestrogens Reversed Triclosan and Bisphenol A-Induced Anti-Apoptosis in Breast Cancer Cells. Abstract:  Triclosan (TCS) and bisphenol A (BPA) are endocrine-disrupting chemicals that interfere with the hormone or endocrine system and may cause cancer. Kaempferol (Kaem) and 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) are phytoestrogens that play chemopreventive roles in the inhibition of carcinogenesis and cancer progression. In this study, the influence of TCS, BPA, Kaem, and DIM on proliferation and apoptotic abilities of VM7Luc4E2 breast cancer cells were examined. MTT assay revealed that TCS (0.1-10M), BPA (0.1-10 M) and E2 (0.01-0.0001 M) induced significant cell proliferation of VM7Luc4E2 cells, which was restored to the control (0.1% DMSO) by co-treatment with Kaem (30 M) or DIM (15 M). Reactive oxygen species (ROS) production assays showed that TCS and BPA inhibited ROS production of VM7Luc4E2 cells similar to E2, but that co-treatment with Kaem or DIM on VM-7Luc4E2 cells induced increased ROS production. Based on these results, the effects of TCS, BPA, Kaem, and DIM on protein expression of apoptosis and ROS production-related markers such as Bax and Bcl-xl, as well as endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-related markers such as eIF2 and CHOP were investigated by Western blot assay. The results revealed that TCS, and BPA induced anti-apoptosis by reducing ROS production and ER stress. However, Kaem and DIM effectively inhibited TCS and BPA-induced anti-apoptotic processes in VM7Luc4E2 cells. Overall, TCS and BPA were revealed to be distinct xenoestrogens that enhanced proliferation and anti-apoptosis, while Kaem and DIM were identified as natural chemopreventive compounds that effectively inhibited breast cancer cell proliferation and increased anti-apoptosis induced by TCS and BPA.

6 Critical Rules to Survive Being Stranded in Your Car in Freezing Temperature Natural Blaze

By Tess Pennington

With the unusual winter weather that many parts of the country are experiencing, driving conditions will be harsh and potentially dangerous. Moreover, getting stranded in your vehicle could become a very real threat, especially if you are traveling in isolated parts of the country. If this happens, you have a potentially dangerous survival situation on your hands.

Most peoples instinct will tell them to leave the car and go for help. If you are in a desolate area, you may not know how far help is and leaving your car will expose you and could get you lost in the wilderness if you dont know where you are going.

6 Critical Tips You Need to Know In Order To Survive Being Stranded in Your Car in Freezing Temperatures


OK, lets put your survival know-how to the test. Heres the scenario:

At 3 p.m., a last minute work order has requested you to deliver some equipment but you must drive through a remote area where the roads elevation is between 4,000 and 4,500 feet. The road is infamous for people who dont know the area to take in the wintertime and get stuck, but youve driven it a few times and feel confident you can make it before dark. Before you set out, you turn on your GPS on your cell phone just in case. Youve also checked the weather station, which turns out is calling for unexpected snow flurries in the area, but youre on a deadline and will drive very carefully.

The molecular mechanisms of action of the endocrine disrupting chemical bisphenol A in the development of cancer. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Gene. 2018 Jan 6. Epub 2018 Jan 6. PMID: 29317319 Abstract Title:  The molecular mechanisms of action of the endocrine disrupting chemical bisphenol A in the development of cancer. Abstract:  The endocrine disrupting chemical (EDC) is an exogenous substance or mixture that alters the function of the endocrine system and consequently causes adverse effects in intact organisms. Bisphenol A (BPA), one of the most common endocrine disrupting chemicals is a carbon-based synthetic compound used in the production of water bottles, cans, and teeth suture materials. It is known to be a xenoestrogen as it interacts with estrogen receptors and acts as agonist or antagonist via estrogen receptor-dependent signaling pathways. BPA has been associated with serious health effects in humans and wildlife. It elicits several endocrine disorders and plays a role in the pathogenesis of several hormone-dependent tumors such as breast, ovarian, prostate cancer and others. More complicate to this picture, its effects rely on several and diverse molecular and epigenetic mechanisms that converge upon endocrine and reproductive systems. The present review gives an overview of general hazards of BPA, its epigenetic modifications and the molecular mechanisms of BPA action in different types of cancers as the increase in information about responses and action mechanisms of BPA may bring a better understanding of the risks of BPA exposure in humans and provide an important platform on which human health can be improved.

The Association Between Thimerosal Exposure and Tics The Advisory Committee on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) Machinations

Between November 2013 and September 2014, I was in direct contact with the CDC Whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson. I recently wrote about my interactions with Dr. Thompson in an editorial piece that appeared in the winter 2017 edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (22:119). One of the key issues that I discussed with Dr. Thompson was the relationship between thimerosal and tics, based on CDCs own publications.

showed a clear, statistically significant increase in both motor and phonic tics in boys in a high thimerosal exposure group as compared to a low thimerosal exposure group.

The literature regarding thimerosal and tics (both motor and phonic) is quite compelling. Several of CDCs own studies show that high levels of thimerosal exposure via infant vaccines can lead to tics later in life. Thompson et al. 2007 (NEJM 357:1281) showed a clear, statistically significant increase in both motor and phonic tics in boys in a high thimerosal exposure group as compared to a low thimerosal exposure group.  This relationship was reaffirmed in 2012 by Barile et al. (2012 J Pediatric Psychol 37:106) when the same data were analyzed using a more rigorous method.

Toxoplasma gondii infection is associated with mitochondrial dysfunction in-vitro. GreenMedInfo

PMID:  Front Cell Infect Microbiol. 2017 ;7:512. Epub 2017 Dec 12. PMID: 29312892 Abstract Title:  Toxoplasma gondii Infection Is Associated with Mitochondrial Dysfunction in-Vitro. Abstract:  Upon invasion of host cells, the ubiquitous pathogen Toxoplasma gondii manipulates several host processes, including re-organization of host organelles, to create a replicative niche. Host mitochondrial association to T. gondii parasitophorous vacuoles is rapid and has roles in modulating host immune responses. Here gene expression profiling of T. gondii infected cells reveals enrichment of genes involved in oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and mitochondrial dysfunction 6 h post-infection. We identified 11 hub genes (HIF-1, CASP8, FN1, POU5F1, CD44, ISG15, HNRNPA1, MDM2, RPL35, VHL, and NUPR1) and 10 predicted upstream regulators, including 4 endogenous regulators RICTOR, KDM5A, RB1, and D-glucose. We characterized a number of mitochondrial parameters in T. gondii infected human foreskin fibroblast cells over a 36h time-course. In addition to the usual rapid recruitment and apparent enlargement of mitochondria around the parasitophorous vacuole we observed fragmented host mitochondria in infected cells, not linked to cellular apoptosis, from 24 h post-infection. An increase in mitochondrial superoxide levelsin T. gondii infected cells was observed that required active parasite invasion and peaked at 30 h post-infection. Measurement of OXPHOS proteins showed decreased expression of Complex IV in infected cells at 24 h post-infection, followed by decreased expression of Complexes I and II at 36 h post-infection. No change occurred in Complex V. No difference in host mitochondrial membrane potential between infected and mock-infected cells was observed at any time. Our results show perturbation of host mitochondrial function following T. gondii infection that likely impacts on pathogenesis of disease.

Higher prevalence of tooth decay among low-income children Fluoride Action Network

LIHUE A Department of Health survey released in 2016 confirmed Hawaiis children have the highest prevalence of tooth decay in the nation.

That same survey, titled the Hawaii Smiles report, also showed a disproportionately higher prevalence of tooth decay among low-income children, especially those who live in Kauai, Hawaii and Maui counties.

But there is still reason to smile, said a Kauai dentist.

Solving the problem of tooth decay begins with prevention and is a team approach that includes the dental office, the family and the community, said Dr. Alan Ing, owner of Kauai Dental Care.

Kauai Dental Care provides two fluoride treatments to young patients for free, even if their dental insurance does not cover this service.

Parents and family members play an important role on a day-to-day basis in helping to prevent decay, Ing said. We teach children and parents the correct way to brush and floss, and tell them about the foods and drinks that promote tooth decay.

Matthew Shim, chief of the Family Health Services Division of the Hawaii Department of Health, said there are significant disparities in access to oral health services and, consequently, oral health that are well documented in Hawaii.

While these disparities are common in many states, they are magnified in Hawaii because of the geography of the island state, concentration of dental services on Oahu, and lack of fluoride in the water, a safe and proven decay prevention measure. As a consequence of these and other factors, Hawaii has a history of having some of the worst dental health in the country.

Candy and sweets are the obvious sugar sources that feed the bacteria in a mouth, but according to Ing, soda and juices, especially sports and power drinks high in sugar and acids, are common culprits in tooth decay.

Our community can also play a role in the prevention of decay. For example, coaches and parents can serve healthier drinks to young athletes, said dental hygienist, Nora Bernabe. Together as a team, we can all work to reduce the rate of tooth decay in our children on Kauai.

Despite ranking at the bottom of the nation for childrens oral health, Hawaii is taking steps to change the oral health status of Hawaiis children and has become a pioneer in teledentistry.

Through a public-private partnership, the Hawaii Department of Health, Pacific Center for Special Care at the University of the Pacifics School of Dentistry, the HDS Foundation and others are using a virtual dental home program.

The public-private partnership has successfully demonstrated the value of the teledentistry pilot project in West Hawaii over the past two years. As a result, the HDS Foundation, which contributed about $315,000 in the first two years of the pilot, this year will allocate an additional $319,000.

In addition, the HDS Foundation committed $125,000 for the first year of a...

PMID: 29141041 Abstract Title:  Effects of a mixed berry beverage on cognitive functions and cardiometabolic risk markers; A randomized cross-over study in healthy older adults. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Berries and associated bioactive compounds, e.g. polyphenols and dietary fibre (DF), may have beneficial implications with respect to the metabolic syndrome, including also cognitive functions. The aim of this study was to evaluate effects on cognitive functions and cardiometabolic risk markers of 5 wk intervention with a mixture of berries, in healthy humans.METHODS: Forty healthy subjects between 50-70 years old were provided a berry beverage based on a mixture of berries (150g blueberries, 50g blackcurrant, 50g elderberry, 50g lingonberries, 50g strawberry, and 100g tomatoes) or a control beverage, daily during 5 weeks in a randomized crossover design. The control beverage (water based) was matched with respect to monosaccharides, pH, and volume. Cognitive tests included tests of working memory capacity, selective attention, and psychomotor reaction time. Cardiometabolic test variables investigated were blood pressure, fasting blood concentrations of glucose, insulin, blood lipids, inflammatory markers, and markers of oxidative stress.RESULTS: The daily amounts of total polyphenols and DF from the berry beverage were 795 mg and 11g, respectively. There were no polyphenols or DF in the control beverage. The berry intervention reduced total- and LDL cholesterol compared to baseline (both P

Your UNIVERSAL RIGHT TO INFORMED CONSENT Denied By Vaccine Pushers Natural Blaze

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Virtually every human ailment has some basis in our genes. [1] What affects human genes? Here are some of the more commonly recognized triggers: Genetics, epigenetics, environmental factors, chemicals, nutrition or lack thereof, electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs), radiofrequencies (RFs), and even medical procedures like ionizing radiation X-rays [2] and chemotherapy [3].

According to biotechnology experts, it usually takes more than a decade for a company to conduct the kinds of clinical studies needed to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration. [1]

NDG Readers Respond: Is Dallas water too dangerous to drink? Fluoride Action Network

The debate is heating up over Dallass water fluoridation program and concerns local activists and some in the scientific community have regarding possible negative health effects associated with adding fluoride to public water. Several readers of our recent article have shared their differing points of views on this issue. We have referenced a few here but visit the original story and the recent Guest Op-Ed by Regina Imburgia to read their opinions.

Much of the criticism centers around the use of hydrofluorosilicic acid, one of the chemical agents commonly used in the fluoridation process as an alternative to the generally more expensive pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride.

Deliberately contaminating the public water supply in Dallas with Hydrofluorosilicic Acid is a terrible ideaIts also a deadly poison, commented Steve Madison.

Claims of the chemicals toxicity are widely accepted and considered credible before it fully dissociates (mixes) in water; however, after it undergoes the complex treatment process, it is considered by governmental health agencies to be safe.

Despite organizations such as the Center for Disease Control, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Public Health Service, and the American Dental Association touting evidence that the small concentrations water is often treated with can help prevent tooth decay (specifically in communities that often dont receive other forms of dental health care), some are concerned that impoverished areas are the most vulnerable to possible negative health outcomes.

Fluoride discriminates. Dallas residents who live in impoverished areas of the City have older pipes which contain lead, J.S. Gentry commented. The Fluorocilicic Acid the City uses in their mix to supplement the naturally-occurring fluoride in our water supply leaches lead out of the old pipes into the water the disadvantaged drink.

Not everyone, however, is convinced the bulk of public health agencies and North Texas municipalities have it wrong on fluoride and public water fluoridation treatments.

There is no legitimate evidence of short or long term harm from drinking optimally fluoridated water, commented Randy Johnson. That is the reason the scientific consensus of relevant experts that fluoridation is a safe and effective public health measure to reduce dental decay and related health issues in a community.

Athens officials continue to fluoridate water Fluoride Action Network

Reverberations continue from an Athens City Council meeting in December on whether the city should add fluoride to the water supply, as it has for more than 30 years.

The city continues to fluoridate its water until our current fluoride supply is exhausted, City Managing Director of Public Services Ryan Adams said. While the issue was discussed at a recent council meeting, the city council did not give staff a specific direction relating to fluoridation.

In 2016, council members considered a bid to buy fluoride but voted to deny the bid.

Since the meeting in December in which several people spoke regarding the issue, the Athens Daily Review has received several letters from dentists here supporting fluoridation or condemning the practice.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association are supporters of adding fluoride to drinking water. Opponents say it can cause problems, including dental fluorosis.

An article from the Columbia University School of Dental Medicine shows that in more severe fluorosis, the teeth can become pitted and have brown, gray or black spots. The enamel also may have an unusual shape.

The condition is treatable, according to the article.

Teeth affected by fluorosis are not diseased. Fluorosis will not result in cavities or other dental problems. Concerns about appearance can be addressed with whitening to remove surface stains and veneers or other procedures to cover the discoloration.

A story in the Scientific American explains that all water contains some fluoride naturally. Fluoridation boosts that amount.

Water fluoridation is the process of adjusting the fluoride content of water to the recommended level for optimal dental health, the Columbia article shows. In the U.S., the optimum concentration for fluoride in the water has been established in the range of 0.7 to 1.2 parts per million.
