POST 43

Sunshine in your lives and Greetings.  
Still not warm yet in the UK,the sun is bright on many days and there is a chilly wind.  It feels not only weather chill but many I meet on the bus and when shopping, fear for their futures and their kids.
  • A 2012 nutritional analysis of GMO versus non-GMO corn shows shocking differences in nutritional content. Non-GMO corn contains 437 times more calcium, 56 times more magnesium, and 7 times more manganese than GMO corn
  • GMO corn was also found to contain 13 ppm of glyphosate, compared to zero in non-GMO corn. EPA “safe” level for glyphosate in American water supplies is 0.7 ppm, and organ damage in animals has occurred at levels as low as 0.1 ppm
  • GMO corn contains extremely high levels of formaldehyde—about 200 times the amount found toxic to animals
  • Research by a Texas teenager using fruit flies, which began when she was in middle school, shows that in virtually every health measure, including fertility, stress resistance and longevity, flies that fed on organic bananas and potatoes fared better than those who fed on conventionally raised produce. Her research was recently published in a respected science journal ( Courtesy Mercola.com)
The above of course is one of the concerns, but grossly unfair austerity measures are another.  I get a state pension and a small works pension.  I blew my works pension when I took separate years off four in all, to travel and take degrees.  The only concession I got my job back, but four years were deducted from the pension. OK it was my choice and there are no regrets. This year the fiscal year of 2013/2014 the raise to the State pension was around £5.00 and the raise to the works pension was 2.2%, and because the chancellor did not raise the personal allowance(the amount of money you can have before taxed) I get £1.00 less than last year and taxed £4.00 more.  With prices going up for food, electricity, day to day living, I am £10.00 worse off than last year.  
Dear readers, believe me I am better off than many, and do not complain, I have simply so far nutritious food, a warm tiny flat, and clothes for the changes in seasons, a TV, computer and kitchen appliances, such as juicers and ceramic cookware.  However, as the days roll on my disposable income is dropping, 10p here, 20 p there on food prices each week, sometimes find myself going to get more cash for everyday living and treats going out of the door.
For Mums and Dads, this must be alarming and anxious. Causing relationship strain, tempers flaring and kids going short of nearly everything.
Whilst  professional soccer playerssnooker players, tennis players, bankers, politicians are getting massive money.  The richest footballer in the UK has 36 million and his wife 26 million pounds and top managers as well in the rankings.

Super Rich
Dear readers you may think or feel I have sour grapes at what I have printed above. I do not the envy  these folks, however, it is not their fault they are this wealthy, it is society that yearns for the skills and distraction to 'TAKE THEM OUT OF THEM SELVES', the entertainment, to holiday is the same kind of thing, the raves and parties and drunkenness now seen in many UK town centres.  There are endless TV programmes of police in real time clearing up town centres of vomiting, offensive girls and boys. (my TV is a large screen and it is hooked up to the Computer and this way I save having to buy a large computer monitor  also doubles for the odd TV programme I view) out of interest to purchase the equipment I needed to do this 'hook up'  I went to a shop and they quoted me £60.00 for the gear.  I went online and got the lot for£10.00 including postage. Many shops are closing down around here because of online shopping and with money getting tight we shall see the small 'corner' shop going and the supermarkets having price wars.  


Often the Police are called to parks, city centres to clear up night parties, drunken orgies and drug hypes.

Perhaps we can look at what to means  to 'run away from oneself'
'to be taken out of oneself' to get high, to be drunk to go like sharks at frenzy eating at parties. To become besotted with TV and Soaps(popular sitcoms on the box, in the UK, Coronation Street, East Enders and so on. Some of my neighbours and their grandchildren cancel all sorts of appointments rather than miss an episode. It is the centre piece and debate of many conversations, and depression with sadness comes when they cease to be.

When we are programmed and brain washed, the 'natural part of ourselves, that which is joined and is one with the real self' , is in some cases extinguished.  It is like a tiger in the zoo a cage, endlessly pacing up and down, yearning to run and be free, to smell the grasses and breathe the pure air, to exercise, to mate, to be part of what it was born to be.   
The worker in the factory is bound,the peasant under a labour boss in the field is bound, the clerk in the office, the waitress, the porter, very few are happy with their jobs, it is a means to an end, to pay for the daily chores and living.
So we need distractions from the boredom to the out of alignment and synchronicity with nature. The media supply this for the poorer members of society and the rich have TOTAL DISTRACTION and become addicted to having it on call at all times and unlimited thrills, highs and constantly paying lots to the suppliers of faster , more exotic cars, yachts, mansions, diamonds, gold and so forth. 
The natural person seeps through now and again and a deep yearning is felt, they seek it out there, as do the poor, 'if only I win the lottery' and yet it has been found that not all lottery winners are happy' 
Then I hear people say ' I don't want millions, just a few million, because one million does not go far today, a new flat and half is gone'
There was a beggar sitting at the gate of an ancient Indian City.  A pleasant man and well liked. The day he died, the citizens decided to bury him at the spot he liked to sit and sleep. When they dug his grave, they found there was a hidden treasure. He did not know what he had been sitting on.
So we look outside for comfort and solace, we feel with riches this can provide servants, cars and the like, yet I have many a wealthy friend who are in unease all the time.  They say to me they are reasonable happy. They often envy me, they say you seem to have very little and skimp and save, yet there is a peace and something. I think they delude themselves, I have my worries as well. There is a well being inside of oneself, a peace of mind, a mind sufficient unto itself.  The Kingdom of Heaven is Within.  Find this sufficiency and then materialism becomes second best and is not the aim of life to accumulate, acquire more and more. For the more one has the more one has to look after and this means more money to do it, either a servant does it for one or one has to work for it harder and harder.  For the super rich they can just laze there days away.  I hear from the [poorest to richest---I am bored. I seek a way out of boring poverty and I seek more thrills because I have travelled the world, seen all the sights( a popular saying, seen the video, got the T-shirt, done the trip, what the so and so next?).






Oh dear the same old park, I wish I could go out somewhere else. Before I became a domestic pet, I wonder what my life would have been in the wild.
Before I was culturally indoctrinated, programmed into a religion, set of politics, wore a dress or suit, when I was native, what was that like,what was it like to be a happy child with happy parents, before some government bureaucrat told me I had to go to war, pay taxes to make the rich richer or fund killing people I do not know and have been told are evil because they are different, have oil and minerals.  What was it like before some priest told me I was a mortal sinner and would burn in perdition, hell fire and brimstone, what was it like when my parents were arguing, telling me I was a waste of space, my girl /men friend dumped me, my wife/husband cheated on me, what was it like to be free, run, smile, be healthy and have nothing but a freedom of mind, no shackles? What was it like?  
It was like being in deep meditation, no thoughts, a deep connection with who I really am, sitting, walking, running. The natural person can have these deep feelings and yet have a life in the body in poverty or riches. They realise all is transient, passing clouds, that by holding on tightly as the man above, we tighten 'the mind' so to speak.  You can have it all as long as there is no addiction clinging.  Yet the ego will fool us and say yes now I have this wealth I am free, this is material freedom and the ego is a master imitator, fools gold.


10 Facts About Fluoride

1. Most Developed Countries Do Not Fluoridate Their Water
More people drink fluoridated water in the US alone than in the rest of the world combined. In Western Europe, for instance, 97 percent of the population drinks non-fluoridated water.
2. Fluoridated Countries Do Not Have Less Tooth Decay Than Non-Fluoridated Countries
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no discernible difference in tooth decay between developed countries that fluoridate their water and those that do not. The decline in tooth decay the US has experienced over the last 60 years, which is often attributed to fluoridated water, has likewise occurred in all developed countries (most of which do notfluoridate their water).
3. Fluoride Affects Many Tissues in Your Body Besides Your Teeth
Many assume that consuming fluoride is only an issue that involves your dental health. But according to a 500-page scientific review, fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that can affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even your blood sugar levels.2

There have been over 23 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage,3 including lower IQ in children, and studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including:
Increased lead absorptionDisrupts synthesis of collagenHyperactivity and/or lethargyMuscle disorders
Thyroid diseaseArthritisDementiaBone fractures
Lowered thyroid functionBone cancer (osteosarcoma)Inactivates 62 enzymes and inhibits more than 100Inhibited formation of antibodies
Genetic damage and cell deathIncreased tumor and cancer rateDisrupted immune systemDamaged sperm and increased infertility

4. Fluoridation is Not a “Natural” Process
Fluoride is naturally occurring in some areas, leading to high levels in certain water supplies “naturally.” Fluoridation advocates often use this to support its safety, however naturally occurring substances are not automatically safe (think of arsenic, for instance).

Further, the fluoride added to most water supplies is not the naturally occurring variety but rather fluorosilicic acid, which is captured in air pollution control devices of the phosphate fertilizer industry. As FAN reported:
“This captured fluoride acid is the most contaminated chemical added to public water supplies, and may impose additional risks to those presented by natural fluorides. These risks include a possible cancer hazard from the acid’s elevated arsenic content, and a possible neurotoxic hazard from the acid’s ability--under some conditions--to increase the erosion of lead from old pipes.”
5. 40% of American Teenagers Show Visible Signs of Fluoride Overexposure
About 40 percent of American teens have dental fluorosis,4 a condition that refers to changes in the appearance of tooth enamel that are caused by long-term ingestion of fluoride during the time teeth are forming. In some areas, fluorosis rates are as high as 70-80 percent, with some children suffering from advanced forms.
It’s likely this is a sign that children are receiving large amounts of fluoride from multiple sources, including not only drinking water but also fluoride toothpaste, processed beverages/foods, fluoride pesticides, tea, non-stick pans and some fluorinated drugs. So not only do we need to address the issue of water fluoridation, but how this exposure is magnified by other sources of fluoride that are now common.
It's also important to realize that dental fluorosis is NOT "just cosmetic." It can also be an indication that the rest of your body, such as your bones and internal organs, including your brain, have been overexposed to fluoride as well. In other words, if fluoride is having a visually detrimental effect on the surface of your teeth, you can be virtually guaranteed that it's also damaging other parts of your body, such as your bones.
6. For Infants, Fluoridated Water Provides No Benefits, Only Risks
Infants who consume formula made with fluoridated tap water may consume up to 1,200 micrograms of fluoride, or about 100 times more than the recommended amounts. Such “spikes” of fluoride exposure during infancy provide no known advantage to teeth, but they do have plenty of known harmful effects.
Babies given fluoridated water in their formula are not only more likely to develop dental fluorosis, but may also have reduced IQ scores. In fact, a Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have "significantly lower" IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.5 A number of prominent dental researchers now advise that parents should not add fluoridated water to baby formula.
7. Fluoride Supplements Have Never Been Approved by the FDA
The fluoride supplements sometimes prescribed to those who are not drinking fluoridated water have not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention of tooth decay. In fact, the fluoride supplements that the FDA has reviewed have been rejected.
“So with fluoridation, we are adding to the water a prescription-strength dose of a drug that has never been approved by the FDA,” FAN noted.
8. Fluoride is the Only Medicine Added to Public Water
Fluoride is added to drinking water to prevent a disease (tooth decay), and as such becomes a medicine by FDA definition. While proponents claim this is no different than adding vitamin D to milk, fluoride is not an essential nutrient. Many European nations have rejected fluoride for the very reason that delivering medication via the water supply would be inappropriate. Water fluoridation is a form of mass medication that denies you the right to informed consent.
9. Swallowing Fluoride Provides Little Benefit to Teeth
It is now widely recognized that fluoride’s only justifiable benefit comes from topical contact with teeth, which even the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged. Adding it to water and pills, which are swallowed,offers little, if any, benefit to your teeth.
10. Disadvantaged Communities are the Most Disadvantaged by Fluoride
Fluoride toxicity is exacerbated by conditions that occur much more frequently in low-income areas. This includes:
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Infant formula consumption
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetes
African American and Mexican American children have significantly higher rates of dental fluorosis, and many low-income urban communities also have severe oral health crises, despite decades of water fluoridation. FAN continues:
The simple fact is that poor populations need dental care, not fluoridation chemicals in their water. The millions of dollars spent each year promoting fluoridation would be better spent advocating for policies that provide real dental care: like allowing dental therapists to provide affordable care to populations with little access to dentists. In short, fluoridation provides good PR for dental trade associations, but bad medicine for those it’s supposedly meant to serve.”
 The strange thing it is illegal in the UK to emit fluorinated emissions in the air from industrial sites because it is lethal, yet can be added to drinking water. Once in the body it is nearly impossible to detox it.  It is bio accumulative, and so makes one gradually sick over the years.  NOW HERE'S the rub. A herbal supplement I take has 22 natural herbs in it, and I have taken this for fifteen years. The EU and UK decided to ban it because it has Cascara Sagrada in it and is considered a medicinal herb.  YET THEY CAN MEDICATE US IN OUR DRINKING WATER WITH FLUORIDE WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION.    
What if we are allergic to the substance, and we know one medicine is not good for everyone, we are individuals with rights aren't we ?  

Trusting your rights are right and you can retain them.


With happy smiling non fluoridated teeth. Be Well. Geoff
