Maine drinking water contains dangerous levels of fluoride

A new study out of Maine suggests that residents across the New England state are regularly subjected to drinking water containing double the amount of fluoride considered to be dangerous by federal guidelines.

Residents from across the Pine Tree State were asked to voluntarily take samples from the private wells they rely on for drinking water, and ten different towns - including eight within a single county - tested higher than hoped for.

Scientific American published the results of the study last week, and the article's author, Dina Fine Maron, wrote that the details suggest many Mainers are introducing dangerous amounts of fluoride to their bodies due to an absence of regulation.

According to Maron, most of the state relies on private wells when it comes to getting water. Unlike public water sources, however, the water that Mainers drink every single day is spared stringent testing.

Comment: Unlike what the government would have you believe, fluoride is a poison at any concentration. Read the articles below and search SOTT.net for more information.

Congo declares an Ebola outbreak, exposing WHO cover-up

© AP
Last week, when we reported on the latest breakout of a mysterious Ebola-like disease, which had claimed at least 70 people's live at last check, we were skeptical by the WHO's attempts to mask the fact that an Ebola outbreak is something else entirely, in a desperate attempt to avoid the panic that would inevitably result from the confirmation that the Ebola virus has officially made its way into the fifth country, this time the second largest African nation by surface area, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

As Reuters reported at the time, citing a WHO spokesman who had sent an email to the news agency, "this is not Ebola" to which we mused: "perhaps the WHO is fibbing just a bit to prevent another all out panic. If not Ebola then what? According to WHO, the deaths are the result of an outbreak of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, a disease prevalent in... dogs?

We concluded: "So is the WHO simply trying to prevent the spread of panic and deny that Ebola has now spread to the second largest country in Africa? We will surely find out soon enough, especially if the WHO, too, advises the population "to keep calm and BTFD"..."

Three days later we have the answer and sure enough, as we suspected the WHO was indeed lying.

Reuters confirms:
Democratic Republic of Congo declared an Ebola outbreak in its northern Equateur province on Sunday after two out of eight cases tested came back positive for the deadly virus, Health Minister Felix Kabange Numbi said. A mysterious disease has killed dozens of people in Equateur in recent weeks but the World Health Organization had said on Thursday it was not Ebola.

Getting worse: Nigeria confirms 2 new Ebola cases

© KJELL GUNNAR BERAAS / DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS VIA AP
Nigeria's health ministry confirmed Friday two new cases of Ebola in the country, the first people to come down with the disease who didn't have direct contact with an infected traveler who brought the virus into the country from nearby Liberia.

Nigerian Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said both newly infected people are the spouses of two caregivers who contracted the virus and later died after giving treatment to Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American man who flew into the country infected with the virus last month.

Comment: Sawyer passed Ebola to 11 other individuals, Ebola itself has an incubation period of 2 to 21 days, and medical professionals have been largely misinforming the public that the only way Ebola can spread is through physical contact. Therefore it's no wonder that Nigeria's Minister of Health has declared, "Everyone in the world is now at risk".

With so many aspects of the globe and humanity falling apart it's a wonder anyone's still going to work. For the big picture view of this completely insane state of affairs check out SOTT Talk Radio:

Woman with Ebola-like symptoms hospitalized in Albuquerque, New Mexico

UNM Hospital

University of New Mexico Hospital
Health officials continue to monitor a Bernalillo County woman showing symptoms similar to the Ebola virus.

The woman was traveling in the West African nation of Sierra Leone at the beginning of the month.

She then returned to Albuquerque and soon after began to develop symptoms on Friday. She was admitted to UNM Hospital on Saturday.

The patient is currently undergoing a series of tests and remains in isolation at the hospital -- blood samples will go to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

Health officials say this is not a highly probable case of the virus, but because of the symptoms -- and her recent return from West Africa -- there's no room for guesses.

Vaccingate: Rob Schneider, William Thompson and the CDC vaccine-autism fraud

Here is a copy of a letter actor and comedian Rob Schneider sent to California Governor Jerry Brown's office Friday. It is posted at canaryparty.org.

Schneider is to be commended and supported in every possible way for stepping forward.

Schneider writes: "I have copies of the original CDC report that was later suppressed and fraudulently changed."

I urge Schneider to post that report now.

MS patients may be able to improve self-awareness using task-oriented cognitive rehabilitation

A new study of self-awareness by Kessler Foundation researchers shows that persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) may be able to improve their self-awareness through task-oriented cognitive rehabilitation.

The study was epublished ahead of print on July 2 in NeuroRehabilitation. (Yael Goverover, Helen Genova, Hali Griswold, Nancy D. Chiaravalloti & John DeLuca: Metacognitive knowledge and online awareness in persons with multiple sclerosis doi: 10.3233/NRE-141113).

Self-awareness is one's ability to recognize cognitive problems caused by brain injury. This is the first study of self-awareness in MS that includes assessment of online awareness, as well as metacognitive awareness.

Global biotech industry sales boom from toxic Glyphosate herbicide

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the global glyphosate herbicides market was valued at USD 5.46 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 8.79 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period from 2013 to 2019. In terms of volume, the global glyphosate market demand was 718.6 kilo tons in 2012.

Read the full report: Glyphosate Market for Genetically Modified and Conventional Crops - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2013 - 2019

Glyphosate demand has witnessed a momentous growth in the past two decades, notably after the introduction of Roundup Ready, glyphosate tolerant GM crops by Monsanto, in 1995. Rising demand of glyphosate tolerant GM crops in countries such as the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, India and China among others are expected to incite glyphosate demand for GM crops such as soybean, maize, cotton and canola (rape seed) among others.

Comment: For more information about the negative health and environmental impacts of Glyphosate or Roundup, as the chemical is commonly known, read the following articles:

More than 90% of USA's 'staple crops' now GMO - killers of the 'New Frontier'

Thanks, Monsanto, for killing our food...
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, genetic engineering of US corn, beets and soy has increased from 65 percent in 2006 to a shocking 90 percent in 2013. Why do so many countries around the world outright reject GMOs when America is forcing them down the throats of the general population without so much as a label for the victims to distinguish? If the word victim sounds drastic, it's time to consider just what it is humans are consuming on a daily basis, and how it shows up in hundreds of thousands of food items and ingredients sold in just about every store.

Consider this: What if confusion was for sale -- would you buy some? Most bees that touch down on pesticides end up unable to locate the honeycomb and they just die. Could GMOs be the culprit of most Alzheimer's and Parkinson's? Your food may be able to withstand heavy doses of herbicides and pesticides, but can you? Your cells may be mutating as you read right now, but there's a way to repair them. First, turn off the TV and throw away the newspaper. You won't find the "repair mechanisms" there. Throw away all of your "commodity crops" that are present in 70 percent of the processed foods found on grocery store shelves.

Next, if you have a smart phone, get the free phone app "Fooducate" (pronounced like educate) here and you can scan the barcodes of all food products to find out instantly if they are GMO. Yes, this is a great tool on the battlefield of the "Food War."

Then, check out GMO labeling laws in 64 different countries around the world, including China, Brazil, Japan, Portugal, South Africa and the entire European Union.

Last year in the USA, 52 GMO labeling bills were proposed in 26 states. Maine and Connecticut are two of those success stories requiring labeling of "Frankenfoods" and serving as beacons of truth about the health detriment of consuming pesticides.

Comment: Hopefully this article is preaching to the choir. If not, you may be ingesting toxicity levels that are a time bomb. If you have GMO foods in every meal, how many GMO ingredients would that be? What is your GMO consumption for the day...every day? Don't forget to add in common use products and cosmetics that are created from GMOs. What did your restaurant really serve you? Add it up and subtract your health.

American hysteria! Wanted, for being ill: Arrest warrant issued for Santa Barbara TB patient

Augustin Zeferino, wanted for TB
A Santa Barbara man with a contagious case of drug-resistant tuberculosis was wanted on an arrest warrant Friday so he can complete treatment, health officials said.

Agustin Zeferino, 24, discontinued treatment for the disease two weeks ago, Santa Barbara County Health Department officials said. Zeferino poses a serious health risk to anyone who comes in contact with him, the department said.

"We do everything we can to enable and give patients incentives to be compliant with receiving treatments," said Charity Thoman, the tuberculosis controller for Santa Barbara County. "This is the most dangerous form of tuberculosis and it can be life-threatening if it goes untreated."
Drug-resistant tuberculosis is a highly contagious and rare form of the disease that can be spread by coughing or sneezing.
It is the second time in the past month that California health officials issued a warrant for a TB patient refusing treatment, though the move is extremely rare. Eduardo Rosas Cruz, 25, was arrested last month in Fresno after refusing treatment.

Thoman said patients will sometimes go missing for a short period of time, but can usually be found before the health department takes legal action. If a patient fails to receive treatment for an extended period of time, health officials work with the district attorney's office to decide whether to pursue criminal charges.

Drug-resistant tuberculosis requires 18-24 months of treatment, but is curable, Thoman said. By law, health officials can't force a patient to be treated for tuberculosis, but officials can use the courts to isolate the patient from the public. That is when officials offer treatment.

Shock! Many in U.S. lack knowledge about Ebola transmission

Although the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) reports no known cases of Ebola transmission in the United States, a Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH)/SSRS poll released shows that four in ten (39%) adults in the U.S. are concerned that there will be a large outbreak in the U.S., and a quarter (26%) are concerned that they or someone in their immediate family may get sick with Ebola over the next year.

The nationally representative poll of 1,025 adults was conducted August 13-17, 2014 by researchers at HSPH and SSRS, an independent research company. The margin of error for total respondents is +/-3.6 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.

Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a severe, often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates, such as monkeys, gorillas and chimpanzees. Four countries have reported infections: Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. Officials report 1,350 have died as of August 21, 2014 and over 2,473 people have been infected since March 2014. For an update on the outbreak, see this CDC link: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/guinea/index.html

Comment: Apart from increased knowledge of Ebola and it's transmission, what may also offer greater protection to Ebola and other viruses is to eat according to your body's physiological needs. See:
