As the Mercedes ad campaign, from a few years ago, went, “Perception is not always reality.”
There is a Marin-based group, GotMercury.org, which seeks to bring forth the unthinking prejudice of people who are so quick to blame every disease on alleged environmental problems. Does there exist areas of environmental contamination that may lead to adverse health consequences? Of course. But contrary to “what is good” for environmental organizations, the environment is far cleaner now than it has been in decades. Factories are no longer dumping raw chemicals into rivers and lake, nor are they belching unlimited toxic gases from their smokestacks. The gas we put in our cars has been unleaded now for decades.
Poisoning by mercury? The most dangerous source is from that “most trusted” source, your medical doctor. GotMercury.org specifically warns children and pregnant women about mercury ingestion. Do they think… do you think… that mercury is OK if your doctor says so? They are worried about one part mercury per million in fish, which must go through processes of the digestive system. How many parts per million does a child get when he or she is taken to the pediatrician for three to five vaccinations at a time, injected directly into their little bodies? The average child now gets 71 vaccinations by kindergarten. And what about pregnant moms, that are urged to get flu shots every year, and now pertussis (whooping cough) shots? How much mercury do those developing babies get, through maternal circulation? To what ill effects?
Consider that, in the vaccines, besides the mercury and questionable biological content, there are numerous other toxins, including aluminum, formaldehyde, anti-freeze (phenoxyethanlol), latex, MSG, and beta-propriolactone. When asked about the skyrocketing rates of autism, Type I diabetes, juvenile arthritis, learning disabilities, and asthma, the “medical experts” will cite either the environment or some genetic factors. Has the human genome changed, radically in the last two generations? No. This is ridiculous.
Environmental cause? Fish? Look to the internal environmental catastrophe of mass serial vaccination. You’ve seen those fish-warning posters in restaurants? How about vaccine warning posters in pediatricians’ offices? How can M.D.’s poison you to health?
Yes, perception of health matters, even in allegedly wholistic-thinking Marin, is dysfunctional. Time to re-think health dangers, and solutions. Solutions should include your personal advancement of health, which should include proper nutrition, regular exercise, proper rest, good attitude, and a nervous system without interference (achieved through regular wellness chiropractic care).
