(NaturalNews) Researchers recently looked at the IQs of 512 Chinese grade-schoolers from two otherwise similar villages, except for the amount of fluoride they were drinking in their water. In the village with high fluoride in their water, the children were less intelligent - and far more apt to be mentally retarded - than the children from the village with low fluoride in the water. Actually, the children drinking less fluoride had about half the fluoride in their blood - and on average, an IQ about 8 points higher.
The Chinese children were drinking well water with naturally occurring fluoride. However, in the U.S., governments often mandate water fluoridation. Seventy percent of the water in the U.S. is fluoridated and even by drinking purified water, most people absorb a gallon of fluoridated water in each shower.
In the low fluoride village, about 28 percent of the children had IQs indicating bright normal or high intelligence. However, in the high fluoride village less than a third of that number - only about 8 percent - had bright normal or high intelligence. In the village with more fluoride, over 15 percent of the children had IQs indicating mental retardation or borderline retardation; whereas, only about 6 percent in the low fluoride village had this problem. The results were clear: the children drinking more fluoride were about two and a half times more likely to have mental retardation.
In either of the villages, the children with scores showing mental retardation or borderline retardation had more fluoride in their blood than any of the other children. The researchers state, "As the fluoride level in children's serum increased, the children's IQs fell and the rates of borderline or lower intelligence increased." Of course, it's impossible to say what the children's IQs would have been, even in the low fluoride village, if they - and their parents - haven't been exposed to fluoride in their water at all. One can bet they would have been much higher.
In the high fluoride village, the average fluoride in the water was 2.47 mg/L (milligrams per liter). In the low fluoride village, the average was .36 mg/L. In the U.S., the CDC recommends water fluoridation between 0.5 to 1.2 mg/L and considers water with 0.7 mg/L or higher to have "substantial" fluoride. The EPA's maximum for fluoride in our water is 4 mg/L - which is well over the amount causing retardation in these children. In the U.S., about one in ten children has a learning disability.
According to the CDC, over forty percent children from 12 to 15 also have dental fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is caused by high exposure to fluoride (some would say fluoride poisoning) and is characterized by visible white stains on the teeth. About two dozen human studies link fluoride with low IQ and over a hundred animal studies link fluoride to brain damage. Still more research connects fluoride with thyroid disease and cancer. Many countries around the world add fluoride to the salt, if it's not easy to reach the population through the water supply.

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.
Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them. Here's a little from the upcoming book... In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters. A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them." Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them. In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old. In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name. Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased... In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean. Kim's book Cleaning Up! is here http://www.cleaningupcleanse.com.
