article imageOp-Ed: The toxic poisoning of America

By David Zublick     Jan 21, 2011 in Health
Are Americans being deliberately poisoned by the U.S. government? As far-fetched as that may sound, evidence indicates that there is an insidious plot underway that threatens the health of every man, woman and child living in America.
In two stories that have floated under the radar for the last couple of years, Congress and health authorities have been working together to pass laws that would sicken the populace and perhaps endanger their very lives.
First, there was the Energy Independence and Security Act, passed by Congress in 2007, a provision of which made it mandatory that the sale of incandescent light bulbs be banned by 2012. These bulbs would be replaced by compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), which are supposed to be more energy-efficient and longer lasting.
In truth, these bulbs contain dangerous amounts of mercury, which, if broken, will pollute the environment, by seeping into groundwater, thereby threatening human health. Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum, recently wrote, “The EPA warns that if we break a CFL, we must take the pieces to a recycling center and not launder ‘clothing or bedding because mercury fragments in the clothing may contaminate the machine and/or pollute sewage’.”
Incandescent bulbs contain no toxic chemicals whatsoever.
The new Congress has introduced the Better Use of Light Bulbs Act, or H.R. 91,which would repeal this subsection of the current legislation, allowing Americans to purchase the light bulbs of their choice.
In introducing this bill, Congress took note of a few facts which have not been widely reported:
* Most CFLs are not manufactured in the United States.
* the amount of mercury in one bulb is enough to contaminate up to 6,000 gallons of water beyond safe drinking levels.These bulbs need to be disposed of very carefully, and in most cases this means the inconvenience of taking them to a recycling center.
* Although we are led to believe that the CFL bulbs have a much longer lifespan than traditional incandescent bulbs, they are not designed to be turned on and off frequently. Doing so reduces their lifespan by as much as 85 percent.
* CFLs can cause skin cancer for people with a sensitivity to light.
In a second, more sinister story, health authorities are now pushing for drugs to be added to the public water supply. These drugs may cause depression and memory loss.
These statins, as they are known, supposedly lower cholesterol and help prevent heart disease and strokes. Health authorities want the drugs added to the water supply, despite the fact that many dangerous side-effects, kept secret by the drug companies have now come to light.
The Cochrane Library, in a newly released study, examined data from 34,000 patients taking these drugs and found that depression, mood swings and short-term memory loss were evident, yet were under-reported or underplayed by the drug companies that funded the research.
Why would health officials and the government want to add toxic drugs which can cause these dangerous side-effects to our water supply?
To control the populace, to keep them docile and easy to manage.
Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, in a speech in March of 1962 at Berkeley University, said "there will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
If this sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theories, remember that recently the government admitted that people are already being mass medicated against their will by sodium fluoride in the water, the health effects of which include lower IQ levels, and increased docility.
It is imperative that Americans wake up to the fact that their government, in a blatant effort to control the masses, will stop at nothing, including the deliberate toxic poisoning of their citizens, to achieve their goals of a society that will acquiesce to the will of the oppressors.
