• Chemicals Adversely Effects To Children Worldwide

    By -

    Chemicals are the basic building blocks that make up all living and non-living things on Earth. Many chemicals occur naturally in the environment, and may be found in our air, water, food and homes. Some chemicals are synthetic and are used in every day products from medicines to computers to fabrics and fuels. Other chemicals are not made deliberately but are by-products of chemical processes. Many chemicals are used to improve the quality of our lives and most are not harmful to the environment or human health. However, some chemicals have the potential to cause harm, in certain amounts, and should only be used when their risks can be appropriately managed.

    Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency. — Dr. Philippe Grandjean, MD and Philip J Landrigan, MD

    Finally, two medical doctors are coming to the forefront with a conclusion I came up with a long time ago: Toxins and chemicals affect children’s brains! Back in the early 1980s I did research on the effects of dietary and environmental chemicals in pregnant women affecting their ability to conceive. My research began when women started experiencing an inability to become pregnant, especially after having been on a birth control pill regimen for several years.

    The results of a six-month, pre-pregnancy detoxification protocol for both prospective parents, coupled with an intensive nutrition and dietary program, always resulted in a planned pregnancy – without fail! I cannot tell you how many couples were …

    To examine fluoride, which is in tap water in many areas, Landrigan and Grandjean looked at an analysis of 27 studies of children, mostly in China, who were exposed to fluoride in drinking water at high concentrations. The data, they said, suggests a decline on average of about seven IQ points.

    “Over the last six or seven years we are actually adding brain toxic chemicals at a greater speed than we are adding toxicity evidence in children's brains,” Grandjean said.

    “At least 1,000 chemicals using lab animals have shown that they somehow interfere with brain function in rodents — rats and mice — and those are prime candidates for regulatory control to protect human developing brains. But this testing has not been done systematically.”

    Doctors Grandjean and Landrigan note that in 2006 they pointed out five industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since 2006, their research and studies resulted in adding six more: manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

    The remarkable part about their latest published paper [2] is that they contend “even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered.” I’d like to offer them a resource to find them: my 2009 book, Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA, A Probe Into What’s Probably Making Us Sick.

    I heartily compliment the astute Doctors for having the courage to buck many systems, especially medicine, which is built on promoting toxic chemicals as pharmacueticals while creating a legal drug culture, for their conclusions that:

    To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, we propose a global prevention strategy. Untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.

    Personally, I think the Doctors’ first target should be vaccines, which are created with all sorts of industrial chemicals, toxins, neurotoxins, metals/minerals, plus adjuvants and other questionable ingredients that I discuss in my October 2013 book, Vaccination Voodoo, that more and more incriminate autoimmune diseases, especially the recently-designated syndrome ASIA, Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants.

    In a 2011 published paper, Richard Cervera, MD, PhD, FRCP, stated, “Over the years, many interesting unsolved questions have been raised relating to the ability of vaccines to induce autoimmune diseases.” In his paper Dr. Cervera asks seven outstanding questions regarding vaccines and autoimmunity that Doctors Grandjean and Landrigan ought to investigate, I think, as part of the new international clearinghouse to “accelerate translation of science into prevention,” they so nobly suggest.

    Dr. Cervera’s question 5,

    Is the number of vaccines given (‘vaccine burden’) important in the induction?

    probably is pointing to a ‘smoking gun’, in my opinion.

    One of the concerns I point out in Vaccination Voodoo is found in Chapter 16 where I talk about “chemical burns” that may occur from all the chemicals in vaccines being jabbed into infants at birth, and at 2, 4, and 6-month well-baby visits, when as many as nine vaccine actives are given at one time, especially if a certain chemical (polysorbate 80) is in the vaccine. That chemical’s purpose is to push other chemicals deliberately into the brain across the blood brain barrier.

    Chemical burns need no source of heat; can occur immediately upon contact; can be extremely painful—are they the cause of screaming fits some children experience after vaccinations; diffuse into tissue and can or may cause damage to the brain that incites neurological anomalies such as encephalopathy or possibly something like Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

    However, I don’t expect Big Pharma to cooperate in the new chemical information clearinghouse being proposed. The stake the pharmaceutical industry has in chemicals is way too large, which can act like a ‘House of Cards’, and also be the incriminating factor, in my opinion. Therefore, as I see it, Pharma will decline, if they want to further the legal drug culture globally, since toxic chemicals are the medical and pharmaceutical industries mainstays for promoting health.

    May I leave readers with what I used to tell clients? “You cannot poison a body into wellness.”

    Children may be exposed to chemicals in indoor and outdoor air, water, soil, house dust, food and consumer products, in the settings where they live, learn and play. In addition, the fetus may possibly be exposed to chemicals during pregnancy, as certain chemicals can cross the placenta. Nursing infants may also be exposed to chemicals that may be present in breast milk.
