4. Drug-resistant Bacteria: antibiotics have saved many lives since its discovery in 1927. However, antibiotic resistance has become the world’s most serious health concern due to bacteria becoming stronger and less responsive to treatment. Microbes in the human body become resistant to the drug, much like weeds become resistant to excessive pesticide use. You can’t fool Mother Nature after all. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “Every time a person takes antibiotics, sensitive bacteria are killed, but resistant germs may be left to grow and multiply. Repeated and improper uses of antibiotics are primary causes of the increase of drug-resistant bacteria.”
5. Contaminated Vaccines: in 2006 the pharmaceutical company Bayer found that the vaccine it had distributed in the United States was contaminated with the HIV virus. Rather than destroy the batch Bayer pulled it from the US market and instead sold it to Asian and European countries. Vaccines continue to raise questions as to whether they are helping or just making our health worse. Everything from the high numbers of autistic children to the epidemic of autoimmune disease, Gulf War syndrome and ADHD are being blamed on vaccinations and Thimerosal, the mercury used to preserve the vaccine. According to the National Vaccine Information Center, mercury is a potent neurotoxin that can harm the brain, spinal cord, kidneys and liver and can affect a child’s brain in pregnancy, infancy and childhood.
6. Fluoride poisoning: found in products all around your home such as toothpaste, vitamins, dietary supplements, cleaning agents, insecticides, and drinking water. According to Dr. Paul Connett, the CDC should ban fluoride because it not only destroys young teeth, but damages the brain as well. In truth it is not an essential mineral, but a toxic waste byproduct foisted on the public by the phosphate mining industry. Rather than release fluorosilicic acid into the environment, causing widespread poisoning and contamination, it was sold to municipalities and added to the water supply. Makes sense.
