SKELETAL FLUOROSIS

PCOS Lady:
A good friend alerted me to this a couple nights ago… I have concluded that all the toxins mix inside us along with “bad” parasites to create medical ailments, medical conditions, etc… to make the medical industry wealthy, us poor as we slowly are being killed!
~ The video narrated by Darlene is a highly informative with facts from the beginning of fluoride through the years…

Listen to the video, Darlene had symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis, and so much more…

http://thearrowsoftruth.com/tag/skeletal-fluorosis/

Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, phosphate fertilizer industries, has an amazing capacity to combine and increase the potency of other toxic materials, and it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens bone and dental matter. It damages the liver and kidneys, weakens the immune system, possibly leading to cancer, creates symptoms that mimic fibromyalgia, and performs as a Trojan Horse to carry aluminum across the blood brain barrier. Also, the pineal gland can become calcified from fluorides, inhibiting it’s function as a melatonin producer, which is needed for sound, deep sleep….

Skeletal fluorosis is a bone disease caused by excessive consumption of fluoride. In advanced cases, skeletal fluorosis causes pain and damage to bones and joints.

Skeletal Fluorosis Phases

Osteosclerotic Phase ~ Ash Concentration (mgF/kg) ~ Symptoms and Signs
Normal Bone: 500 to 1,000 Normal
~
Preclinical Phase: 3,500 to 5,500 Asymptomatic; slight radiographically-detectable increases in bone mass
~
Clinical Phase I: 6,000 to 7,000 Sporadic pain; stiffness of joints; osteosclerosis of pelvis and vertebral spine
~
Clinical Phase II: 7,500 to 9,000 Chronic joint pain; arthritic symptoms; slight calcification of ligaments’ increased osteosclerosis and cancellous bones; with/without osteoporosis of long bones
Phase III: Crippling Fluorosis 8,400 Limitation of joint movement; calcification of ligaments of neck vertebral column; crippling deformities of the spine and major joints; muscle wasting; neurological defects/compression of spinal cord

Symptoms and Side Effects

Symptoms are mainly promoted in the bone structure. Due to a high fluorine concentration in the body, the bone is hardened and thus less elastic, resulting in an increased frequency of fractures. Other symptoms include thickening of the bone structure and accumulation of bone tissue, which both contribute to impaired joint mobility. Most patients suffering from skeletal fluorosis show side effects from the high fluorine dose such as ruptures of the stomach lining and nausea. Fluorine can also damage the thyroid gland leading to hyperparatthyroidism, the uncontrolled secretion of parathyroid hormones. These hormones regulate calcium concentration in the body. An elevated parathyroid hormone concentration results in a depletion of calcium in bone structures and thus a higher calcium concentration in the blood. As a result, bone flexibility decreases making the bone more amenable to fractures.

FACTS:
~ Skeletal fluorosis is endemic in areas with high concentrations of fluoride in the drinking water, but it is rare in other parts of the world.
~ Brewed tea has one of the highest fluoride contents among beverages in the United States.

Skeletal Fluorosis—A Real Danger of Excessive Fluoride Consumption

The harmful effects of chronic fluoride exposure on bone are well established. Since the 1930s it has been known that fluoride intake causes excessive bone growth, which can result in joint pain, bone pain, and stiffness. These symptoms are difficult to distinguish from arthritis. Other symptoms indicative of early clinical stage skeletal fluorosis include:

~ Burning, prickling, and tingling in your limbs
~ Muscle weakness
~ Chronic fatigue
~ Gastrointestinal disorders
~ Reduced appetite and weight loss

The second clinical stage of skeletal fluorosis is characterized by:

~ Stiff joints and/or constant pain in your bones; brittle bones; and osteosclerosis
~ Anemia
~ Calcification of tendons, or ligaments of ribs and pelvis
~ Osteoporosis in the long bones
~ Bony spurs may also appear on your limb bones, especially around your knee, elbow, and on the surface of tibia and ulna

In advanced skeletal fluorosis (called crippling skeletal fluorosis), your extremities become weak and moving your joints difficult, and your vertebrae partially fuse together, effectively crippling you. You have a heightened risk of developing problems from even mild exposure to fluoride, such as bone fractures, if you:

~ Are elderly
~ Are deficient in calcium, magnesium, and/or vitamin C
~ Have cardiovascular problems
~ Have kidney problems

Evidence Of Fraud In The Matter Of Water Fluoridation by Darlene Sherrell

Is your town fluoridated? Are they considering adding fluoride to the water supply? If so, you should know that the CDC recommends fluoridation based on the Institute of Medicine’s fraudulent interpretation of their own references.

Increases in fluoride intake from a variety of sources have made water fluoridation the source of an overdose. Children who live in non-fluoridated areas are ingesting just as much fluoride as they did in 1 ppm fluoridated areas sixty years ago. Adults in fluoridated areas are ingesting enough fluoride to cause the arthritic symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning. [National Research Council – Health Effects of Ingested Fluoride, 1993 & Drinking Water and Health, 1977]

Adding fluoride to the water supply will not improve dental health – but it will produce more cases of disfiguring mottled enamel.

The information below (on site post) is proof of either fraud or incompetence on the part of the CDC with regard to their recommendation for water fluoridation.

Symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning

The United States Public Health Service (USDHHS) describes the early stages in the progression of fluoride poisoning as “sporadic pain and stiffness of joints; chronic joint pain, arthritic symptoms, slight calcification of ligaments, increased osteosclerosis of cancellous bones with or without osteoporosis of long bones.” The advanced crippling stage is described as “limitation of joint movement, calcification of ligaments in the neck and vertebral column, crippling deformities of the spine and major joints, muscle wasting, and neurological defects with compression of the spinal cord.” [Review of Fluoride Benefits and Risks, (1991) page 46]

Safety Studies?

Catch 22 . . .
There are no diagnostic methods capable of determining whether or not a person’s arthritic symptoms were caused by excess fluoride. Researchers and health care providers cannot confirm or report suspected cases of chronic fluoride poisoning until the condition reaches the advanced crippling stage. The claim for safety is based on the absence of reports which would require non-existent diagnostic methods.

MERCURY POISONING SYMPTOMS
~ ~ ~
http://www.life123.com/health/first-aid/food-poisoning/mercury-poisoning-symptoms.shtml
~
By: Aysha Schurman
Mercury poisoning symptoms are rather hard to ignore. The poison will affect the entire body, not just a single area. The exact symptoms can change from person to person, but left untreated, severe mercury poisoning can be deadly.
~
What Is Mercury?
Mercury is a naturally occurring metal that exists all around us. It can be highly dangerous in large quantities and poisonous to most living organisms. Mercury can be found in the air, water and soil. It is silver colored, but odorless and tasteless. There are three forms of mercury that can cause poisoning: elemental, inorganic and organic.
~
Mercury Poisoning Symptoms
In large quantities, mercury is deadly. It not only causes many severe symptoms, it can compromise the immune system. So in addition to symptoms from the poisoning, you can contract other diseases and other symptoms due to the mercury poisoning. This sometimes makes mercury poisoning hard to identify and treat.
What mercury poisoning symptoms you present can depend entirely on what type of mercury you were exposed to. Symptoms can range from loss of teeth, hives or fever to rashes, skin lesions or a metallic taste.
~
Psychological disturbances: ~ mood swings ~ anxiety ~ anger ~ depression ~ memory loss ~ irritability
Neurological disturbances: ~ dizziness ~ twitching ~ headaches ~ tremors
Gastrointestinal disturbances: ~ diarrhea ~ stomach cramps ~ other gastrointestinal problems
Respiratory disturbances: ~ emphysema ~ shallow breathing ~ a constant cough
Cardiovascular disturbances: ~ chest pains ~ weak pulse ~ an irregular heartbeat
Basic sense disturbances: ~ impaired vision ~ speech ~ hearing ~ coordination
Oral disturbances: ~ loss of teeth ~ gum discoloration ~ gum bleeding ~ a metallic taste
~
Mercury Poisoning Treatment
The exact treatment needed for mercury poisoning depends on the type of mercury you are exposed to. At the very least you will need to visit your doctor if you suspect you have mercury poisoning. It’s likely you will be admitted to the hospital for several different treatments and medications if the mercury poisoning is anything other than very minor.

QUOTES:
“Mercury poisoning is impaired oxidation. It’s like having an invisible cord around your neck that’s strangling you, but you can’t feel that the cord is there. (The strangulations) is biochemical, but the principal is the same: mercury reduces the amount of oxygen that you get.”
Dr. Alfred Zamm, M.D., F.A.C.P. “…
~
“Slow healing” is in part a result of zinc deficiency. Mercury interferes with zinc metabolism.”
“Chronic fatigue” is a result of insufficient oxygen to the cells. Mercury interferes with the ability of hemoglobin to transport oxygen” and “…..ringing in the ears” is related to manganese deficiency. Mercury interferes with manganese metabolism.”
It’s All In Your Head, by Hal A. Huggins, DDS
~
“Mercury is associated with 258 different symptoms and copper with over 100. Almost all my patients who had their mercury-based fillings removed show moderate to dramatic improvement in their health in usually less than one month.”
Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac of Santa Monica California (from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg.
~
“Research has demonstrated that the body’s tissues – especially in the brain, kidneys, jaw, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and liver -absorb and store mercury.”
Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg
~
“After he underwent a root canal at the age of 15, Earl suffered severe fatigue and anxiety. At 28, he had a nervous breakdown. At the age of 32, suffering from fatigue, anger, anxiety, back problems, low blood sugar, nervousness, ringing in his ears, concentration loss, and prematurely graying hair, he consulted acupuncturist. Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac. of Santa Monica, California performed a mercury vapor analysis on Earl’s teeth and found that the level of toxic fumes from Earl’s six mercury amalgam fillings was 42 times higher than the Environmental Protection Agency’s maximum allowable limit.
He was put on supplements and there was significant improvement in his metabolic rate and blood sugar levels, he had all six mercury amalgams and his root canal tooth removed. Earl said, “I don’t remember when I have ever felt so good.”

Mercury poisoning: Are you affected?
~
FACTS:
Mercury amalgams (silver fillings)
* Most mercury amalgams are composed of approximately 50% mercury, 35% silver and 15% tin, copper and/or zinc. * Mercury is the major ingredient amounting to about one-half gram per amalgam. In the words of Professor Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, that is a “colossal” amount of mercury in scientific terms—as much, in fact, as is in a thermometer. A teenager with six fillings has six mercury thermometers worth of mercury in his or her mouth.
~
It should be noted that the more copper present in the amalgam, the more mercury vapor is released proportionally.
• Mercury atoms are continually released into the mouth with 80% absorbed by the lungs.
• Each and every amalgam daily releases on the order of 10 micrograms of mercury into the body (i.e. 3,000,000,000,000,000 mercury atoms per day).
• More than 2/3 of the excretable mercury in humans is derived from amalgams.
• People exposed to mercury on a sustained basis are at risk of lowered fertility.
• Mercury crosses the maternal placenta into the tissue of a developing fetus.
• Mercury immediately and continually challenges kidney function.
• Mercury can enhance the prevalence of multiple antibiotic resistant intestinal bacteria.
• Dentists, who collectively use 300 metric tons of mercury in amalgams each year and who often have two to five times the typical concentration of mercury in their urine, experience subtle neural and behavioral anomalies. 2,3
~
Vaccines
A very controversial source of mercury is vaccines, second only to mercury amalgams in terms of primary sources of mercury toxicity. Thimerosal (49.6% ethyl mercury) has been used as a preservative and adjuvant in most vaccines since 1931. After the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) went into effect in October 1,1988, citizens who were injured by a vaccine or vaccines could not sue the manufacturer directly but had to first file a claim with VICP.

See a Doctor “IF” … 20+ yr olds or?

Posted in PCOS SYMPTOMS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:59 pm by PCOSLady

THANK YOU PCOSA FOR THE HEALTH BYTE...


~
Here is this week’s Health Byte from the PCOSA … 5/1/04
~
When to See a Doctor About PCOS From The Age of 20 Onwards
~
Polycystic ovary syndrome is a long-term condition that can gradually affect females in different age groups from puberty right through to much later in life.
~
Symptoms of PCOS are often mistaken for another medical problem, which can make it difficult to know when to see your doctor. But early diagnosis and treatment of PCOS may help prevent serious related health complications such as pre- and type 2 diabetes and heart disease as well as reproductive and metabolic problems.
~
Taking a wait-and-see approach, often called watchful waiting, is not appropriate when PCOS is suspected.
~
If you are between 20 and 40 years old, consult your doctor if you have:
~
~ Menstrual cycles that are consistently less than 21 days apart or more than 35 days apart.
~ Regular menstrual cycles but you have been trying unsuccessfully to become pregnant for more than 12 months.
~ Vaginal bleeding that lasts more than 8 days. Watch out for large clots or excessive spotting.
~ Pelvic pain that lasts for more than 4 weeks.
~ Excessive hair growth or hair growing on the chest, back, belly or face. This PCOS-linked condition is known as hirsutism.
~ Any symptoms of diabetes, such as increased thirst and frequent urination (especially at night), unexplained increase in appetite, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision or tingling or numbness in your hands or feet.
~ Skin problems such as acne, oily skin, dandruff, skin tags in the armpits or neck area, or dark skin patches (acanthosis nigricans) in skin folds or on the neck, groin or underarms.
~ Depression or mood swings. Many women have emotional problems related to the many physical symptoms of PCOS, such as excess hair, obesity or infertility.
~ Excess weight gain or upper body obesity (more abdominal fat than hip fat). This is also known as android obesity and is related to increased male hormone (testosterone) levels.
~
If you are older than 40, consult your doctor if you experience these additional symptoms which can be linked to PCOS :
~
~ Signs of heart disease, such as chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, unusual levels of fatigue or high blood pressure (hypertension)
~
Who To See
~
Health professionals who can diagnose and treat PCOS may include:

~
~ Endocrinologists (pediatric or medical)
~ Reproductive endocrinologists
~ Gynecologists
~ Obstetricians
~ Family practice physicians
~ Nurse practitioners
~ Physician assistants
~ Internists
~ Registered dietitians
