Assault on the Nervous Systems by Anti-Cognitive Chemicals

What do chloramines, fluoridation, lead corrosion, vitamin D deficiency, bromine, mineral sulfate removal, and iodine deficiency have in common?  They should all be classified as anti-cognitive biological chemical processes. We can be our own worst enemy.  We have been highly successful in our use of chemicals for technological advancement.  We try to protect ourselves from toxic substances and pathogens, while creating health problems through unintended consequences.  This has been the case for increases in Alzheimer’s, ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other general cognitive impairment.  Halogen (iodine, bromine, fluorine, etc.) physiology along with mineral deficiencies needs to be significantly reviewed in the US and the use of halogens in our food supplies and water sources need to be adjusted accordingly.

Consider in the late 1990’s that the EPA decided it would be a really great thing to reduce the amount of chloromethane created from the chlorination of water.  They did this by forcing the use of ammonia added to water at the treatment plants creating chemicals in the water called chloramines.  Chloramines formed in water are so toxic that fish cannot live in it.  However, it is a longer lasting water disinfectant and it does not seem to generate as much chloromethane, a carcinogen.  However, the other toxic disinfectant byproducts (DBP’s) that are created and unregulated are of concern.  One of these may be halogen acetic acids.  HAA’s have a stated standard with standards for chloro-acetic acid and iodo-acetic acid, but no standard for fluoro-acetic acid.

Chloraminated water is much more corrosive, most likely from the created HAA’s.  This causes the leaching of lead from water pipes in supply and distribution systems (my city has thousands of miles of iron pipe held together at the joints with lead like must municipalities) and home potable water systems that are joined with solder lead joints.  There have been several studies showing an increase in lead content in water after the start of chloramination or the use of chloramines.

Fluoride has been shown to aid the build-up of the concentration of lead in the human body.  So by fluoridation of water to supposedly improve our dental health along with the use of chloramines, we have inadvertently created higher amounts of lead.  This is of major concern for the developing brains of our children and the aging brains of elderly.

The US is the only country in the world that allows the use of bromine in baking and in cloudy citrus drinks.  This iodine mimic causes significantly physiological malfunction in the thyroid as well as other functional biological iodine processes.  Consider that children have a ten to fifteen times higher uptake of iodine versus adults and consider the damage.  Bromine is not used in other countries because it is a carcinogen.

Add to this vitamin and mineral deficiency.  Vitamin D is responsible for mineral balance in the body, in particular the sodium-sulfate co-transporter.  Adequate sulfate is necessary for the formation of cerebroside sulfate that is necessary for proper neuron development.  Also consider that iodine deficiency is considered by the World Health Organization as the number one cause of mental illness in the world.  Sulfate also is the body’s best defense against toxins as it removes them through water soluble sulfate esters. Cities remove the sulfate minerals from the water because it is stinky and plugs the pipes.  Iodine, D3, and sulfate deficiencies combine as a disaster for mental function.

Take away iodine, vitamin D3, sulfate and add neuro-toxins and iodine mimics and you have the perfect conditions necessary for cognitive impairment.  Well the cause is idiopathic the experts claim.  Is Dr. M. Scott Peck accurate in his description of group evil through specialization?  One thing is certain, idiots and unintended consequences always seem to find each other.  In the case of water disinfection and vitamin and mineral deficiencies, you might say that this meeting of idiots and unintended consequences has created epicentric waves of causation for cognitive impairment.  For now, your cognizant commenter – Pandemic Survivor

Nutrition – And Then There is Water!

If you are reading this to find out how much water is needed per day, then about one half ounce per pound of body weight per day from all sources is adequate.  If you are a rigid scientist, do not bother to read this article.  If you want to learn something new about water and perhaps energy then forge ahead.  This is the stuff that is on the edge that nobody wants to admit reading, but we are really fascinated by the unknown.  To get the full benefit of this information, I would like to suggest that you watch both videos referenced below.  That is a two and one half hour commitment, but that is the nature of trying to understand a new paradigm.

In a recent post, I listed the things that I have found that are deficient in our diets.  The prime targets are vitamin D, vitamin C, magnesium, iodine, potassium, and sulfur.  But for health, the type of water and the amount is apparently very important.  I have been amazed at some of the recent research regarding water.  Just maybe the health benefit of going into the sun has to do with what happens to water from the exposure to light or other electromagnetic radiation.  It appears that water takes on structure.  Not only do significant boundaries develop, the pH of the water also changes (to become alkaline at a pH of about 7.4 or the desired pH of blood – fascinating!) as this modification occurs.

I first became aware of this from the work of Masaru Emoto.   He determined that water changed its shape if presented with classical music, prayer, and other warm and friendly environments.  Upon freezing, the water would form crystals like you see with snowflakes.  If the water was played rap, hard rock, or cursed at, it would not form crystals.  Emoto says that we only understand about three percent of what “is”.  Amazingly, this agrees with the statement of the National Academy of Science (yes the same NAS that houses the Institute of Medicine) when they describe dark(dark meaning we cannot see, feel, or touch it but know that it exists based on the acceleration of the universe) energy at seventy three percent and dark matter at twenty three percent leaving only four percent as everything that we can perceive exists.

Then Dr. Gerald Pollack, University of Washington bioengineering professor, discovered that water forms structured boundaries when exposed to infrared light (benefit of exposing our bodies to the sun?).  There is a sixty minute you tube video where he presents his findings – “Water, Energy, and Life: Fresh Views from the Water’s Edge”.   This is one amazing lecture about water and how it forms structure.  There is a shot of two beakers with the water bridging in between which I did not believe was possible.  Is water in this state a liquid?  I wonder if you followed Emoto’s method of freezing if it would form crystals.

In the first century, the Didache – The Lord’s teaching through the Twelve Apostles, was used as a manual for methods of practice for Christians.  The original translation says to use living water for baptism.  Is this the original holy water?  Later translations have changed this to running water.  However, if Emoto is correct (water taken from clear running springs forms crystals) and the practice of Christians in the use of Holy water, then just maybe the meaning of ‘living water’ is ‘structured water.’

Then in watching the US Open tennis tournament, one of the sponsors was selling ‘structured’ water and touting its benefits.  Is this structured water?  Does it remain structured after being shipped in plastics bottles?  A search of the web and you will find many devices that claim will change the structure of water.

If you really want to stretch your thinking then watch this one and half hour video: “Water- The Great Mystery”.   Researchers, theologians, scientists, and philosophers struggle with the understanding of the properties of water.

And then there is energy conversion by BlackLight Power, Inc.  The claims of this company are that they can release the latent energy of hydrogen from a newly discovered form of hydrogen based on the hydrino physics of Dr. Randell Mills.  I do not know if there is anything to this, but the observation is that we know a lot less about water than we think.  There are also other methods of energy conversion from water that are being claimed like water arc discharges, turbulent cavitation excitation of water, and carbon arc discharges in water.  For much more information on New Energy Science and Technology please see FAQ at Infinite-Energy Magazine founded by the late Dr. Eugene Mallove.

Yes, I know there is nothing that seems to approach logic in the above array of “what is water?”  However, there are links and connections that should not be ignored.  For your health, it is important to treat your body with respect and maintain it in a warm friendly light filled environment.  Spend some time in the sun, pray constantly, maintain a positive attitude, listen to classical music, and love others as yourself – after all your body is about two thirds water.  – Pandemic Survivor
