Three days without water and you’re dead. It makes up 75% of our body and 85% of
our brain matter. It’s the most precious substance to life. Without adequate amounts you grow sick, fast. And that’s the problem. Few people have access to clean water and most have no idea how their health is being compromised!
Slowly but surely, millions are succumbing to fluoride and chloride toxicity. Both are dumped into city tap water by the truckload. Ironically, it’s done under the guise of health. Fortunately, awareness is growing. People want to know, “What’s the best fluoride filter?” Good thing, too!
Commenting on the additives, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that fluoride and chloride may contribute to weakening of the skeletal system, high risk of fractures, depression, kidney problems, poor thyroid function, obesity, lack of focus, asthma, respiratory problems and even cancer. The most inexpensive way to avoid these is by using a fluoride filter that also targets chloride!
Looking for the best fluoride filter, I tested several common brands found at Target, Walmart and Amazon.com. Pur and Brita failed miserably. So too did carbon filters in the fridge.
In a desperate attempt to avoid fluoride, many people are installing pricey, reverse osmosis systems in their kitchen. But, that can cost as much as $500. Fortunately, it’s not hard to find the best fluoride filter, for a lot less!
After several water tests – results shown below – I found a 5-stage filter for about $40 that easily pulls fluoride and chlorine from even the most toxic of taps! Meet ZeroWater (see video at bottom for demo). Found at major stores like Bed, Bath and Beyond, Walmart, Target, Fry’s and Sears, ZeroWater successfully removed fluoride and chloride compounds from Los Angeles tap water! I ran these tests using state of the art chemistry methods that can detect toxins like fluoride and chloride at the lowest possible concentration. Enjoy! (And, no! I’m not affiliated with this company whatsoever.)

ZeroWater is unique in that it has the following 5-stages of filters:
Stage 1: Activated carbon infused micron cloth.
Stage 2: Multi-layer system using activated carbon and oxidation reduction alloy.
Stage 3: Distributor that maximizes contact time.
Stage 4: Comprehensive ION EXCHANGE array.
Stage 5: Non-woven membrane to remove fine particles.
Below is a short video showing the ZeroWater in action!
Why Everyone Needs “The Best Fluoride Filter”
Water serves as a vehicle for nutrients to ensure proper “hormone intelligence.” Once secreted, it carries health-promoting hormones through the bloodstream to bring about necessary changes in the body required for proper metabolism, exercise recovery, immune function and more. But if your water is loaded with fluoride or any other toxins, hormone intelligence collapses and aging accelerates.
Pure water also optimizes the replication of DNA, which carries hereditary information in all living cells. One of life’s most fascinating and complicated structures, DNA is the blueprint for a healthy life. But it’s function is dependent on having water free of fluoride and chloride. Specifically, water is present within the DNA grooves. This aids in holding the structure together. Without this “stickiness” afforded by pure water, the duplication process does not occur – replication is compromised and cells become old and brittle fast. By ensuring pure water consumption, aging cells can be copied more efficiently into newer, healthier ones. Therefore, the ZeroWater Filter represents an inexpensive and simple way to live young, longer!
Millions of people are taking cholesterol-lowering drugs thinking they’re going to live longer. This proud certainty stems from advertising, not science. The cholesterol lowering drug trials prove it.
Starting with Crestor. Crestor plummeted cholesterol levels, yet failed to show any effectiveness, as could be seen by a 0% decrease in absolute total mortality rates among users.
Other statin drug trials show this same trend. Joel Kauffman, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry Emeritus, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, teaches that the WOSCOPS trial showed only a 0.9% absolute drop in absolute total mortality among those taking the statin drug Pravachol over five years. Ignoring the placebo group, Pravachol drug pushers touted a 22% drop in relative risk reduction for total mortality.
Many might argue that while Pravachol does not prevent early death, it does prevent heart attack and stroke. This is false. With respect to heart attack and stroke, the PROSPER trial showed that Pravachol provided no reduction in heart attack or stroke among those who had no previous signs of cardiovascular disease (termed primary prevention) and an absolute risk reduction of 4.3% among those who did (termed secondary prevention).
The statin drug trial known as LIPID showed these same results. The Long Term Intervention with Pravachol in Ischemic Heart Disease (LIPID) showed a contemptible absolute risk reduction in total mortality of 3.1%. Pravachol drug pushers touted a 21% drop in relative risk reduction for total mortality.
Even the most favorable statin drug trial, having minimal conflicts of interest and ethically sound reporting, the Heart Protection Study (HPS), yielded users of Zocor (simvastatin) with only a 1.8% drop in absolute risk reduction for total mortality. Another trial involving Zocor, the 4S trial, showed a minimal 3.3% drop in absolute risk reduction for total mortality among users. Zocor drug pushers touted a 29% relative risk reduction for total mortality.
The Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial ─ Lipid Lowering Arm (ASCOT-LLA) trial, designed to identify the benefits of Lipitor (atorvastatin), showed 0% reduction in absolute total mortality rates among users. Looking at absolute risk reduction of heart attack and stroke, Lipitor yielded a miniscule reduction of 1.2% over 3.3 years. Lipitor drug pushers touted… whatever they wanted.
Lipitor ads were most honest. The fine (really fine) print on the back of ads declared that Lipitor “has not been shown to prevent heart disease.” Believe it.
Figure 1. Fine print included in ads for Lipitor by Pfizer courtesy of Weston A. Price Foundation. See the last sentence.
The most recent statin drug trial showing the ineffectiveness of Lipitor was the TNT (Treating to New Targets) study. Those receiving low-dose Lipitor reduced their mean LDL-cholesterol levels to 101 mg/dL, while those taking the high dose brought their LDL readings down to 77 mg/dL. After a median follow-up of 4.9 years, neither the high-dose nor low-dose group prevented early death. Lipitor drug pushers ignored this and touted a 20% relative risk reduction in coronary events.
Unable to decipher the deceptive statistics, a compliant media shouted “lower is better” with respect to LDL-cholesterol. Fucking sheep.
Combining statin drug trial results (meta-analysis) also failed to show any benefit to using statin drugs. Researchers from Therapeutic Initiatives performed a meta-analysis of five major statin drug trials, these being PROSPER, ALLHAT-LLT, ASCOT-LLA, AFCAPS and WOSCOPS.
In the pooled data of these trials, statin drugs provided a total absolute risk reduction in total mortality of 0.3% among those who showed no signs of having cardiovascular disease (primary prevention). With respect to preventing heart attack and stroke, the five combined studies showed that statins prevented these events by a mere 1.4%.
The statin drug trials proved something else. Medicine is a cult of hype. And far too many people have let themselves be conditioned to make decisions on obscure bits of data spoon fed by the media and doctors who quote ads rather than science.
My son Blair doesn’t have ADD – Attention Deficit Disorder. He’s afflicted with BFA (Being Fucking Awesome.) It’s not a disability. It’s an ability.
His brain fires faster, with more torque. Right now he bounces off walls. As he learns to manage it, he’ll soar. While his peers are bumping into each other on the ground in a myopic daze, he’ll be dodging lightning.
As he gets older, he probably won’t show up for school all the time, just on test day…To ace it.
That’s because my wife and I have been teaching him to read, comprehend, question and expand on all subjects he studies. He won’t need six hours of classroom study, daily. After all, there’s more to life than learning, it’s experience.
Most of the time, that experience happens inside his head.
You see it as a distraction. Blair sees it as messy, thick layers of detail. And combing through it helps him relate to the world around him. That takes focus and energy. Most would give up from exhaustion.
That’s why he tends to see school as a distraction. He just doesn’t know how to communicate it, so he rebels. The more he experiences those layers, the more he learns about himself, human nature and how to shape the world around him. So don’t force facts on him. He’s too young.
Just let him know you respect his individuality and imagination so he can continue being fuckin’ awesome for years to come. Otherwise, your labeling, could lead to prescription drug use. In particular, doctor mandated amphetamines.
Have you done your homework on prescription amphetamines?
You can start with Adderall.
Here are three things you should know.
First, Adderall is cocktail of amphetamine salts. On the street, they’re sometimes referred to as meth, poor man’s cocaine, crystal, ice, glass, and speed. As a dad who is a chemist, I don’t want my kid on this shit.
Second, the manufacturer of Adderall, Shire Richwood, Inc. is a liar. Their ads insist that by letting students “use Adderall,” they can, “Achieve efficacy and duration of action without compromising safety!”
You don’t have to get a master’s degree in organic chemistry to know that’s bullshit.
The effects of using Adderall include addiction, psychotic behavior, and brain damage. Withdrawal symptoms include depression, anxiety, fatigue, paranoia, aggression, and intense cravings.
Chronic use can cause violent behavior, anxiety, confusion, insomnia, auditory hallucinations, mood disturbances, delusions, and paranoia. Damage to the brain caused by methamphetamine usage is similar to Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and epilepsy
The Merck Index and The Experimental Pharmacology Department of the American Cyanamid Company reveals that upon administration of these drugs (not after decades of use but upon administration), motor activity decreases. Frequently, tremors and convulsions occur. Short-term clinical doses produce brain cell death and long-lasting and sometimes permanent changes in the biochemistry of the brain can occur.
And finally, if you label my kid, you ruin him.
Labels bury sensibilities. That’s why you won’t find ADD on the periodic table of learning. What you will find is experience, between nurturanium and imagitanium. So let Blair experience Blair, without being encumbered with labels and drugs.
Note to parents: Letting your children learn through experience is also your responsibility. Nothing aids in that endeavor more than raising vibrantly healthy children. Get started by reading Over-The-Counter Natural Cures so that they don’t succumb to obesity and pre- diabetes, like so many of their peers.
