OK... we are talking about 13 versus 11 persons in a 1000 person group. Not a reason to panic but certainly calls for much more thorough drug testing procedures.

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain | Health Impact News

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain | Health Impact News | Natural Wellness & Health | Scoop.it
Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, non stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising. Fluoride's neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public as well. A new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine, adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a curcumin (found in turmeric) helps protect against the various health effects associated with fluoride exposure.

Fake Olive Oil: What You Need To Know

Despite religious and philosophical exemptions from vaccines offered in almost every state, not to mention the abundant side effects–including possible carcinogenesis–associated with such substances, roughly 95% of American families subject their children to the federally-mandated immunization schedule. Under the NAIP, government bureaucrats and the vaccine industry are now poised to foist a similarly intensive yet scientifically dubious program on the entire US population.

Why Essential Oils Heal and Drugs Don’t | Health Impact News

Why Essential Oils Heal and Drugs Don’t | Health Impact News | Natural Wellness & Health | Scoop.it
Drugs and oils work in opposite ways. Drugs toxify. Oils detoxify. Drugs depress the immune system. Oils strengthen the immune system. Oils are smart. Drugs are dumb.
Amy Rouse's insight:

"Drugs are one-dimensional, programmed like robots to carry out certain actions in the body, whether the body can benefit from them or not. When body conditions change, drugs keep on doing what they were doing, even when their actions are no longer beneficial.

Essential oils are multi-dimensional, filled with homeostatic intelligence to restore the body to a state of healthy balance. When body conditions change, oils adapt, raising or lowering blood pressure as needed, stimulating or repressing enzyme activity as needed, energizing or relaxing as needed. Oils are smart. Drugs are dumb."
