Insight into the connection between polluted bodies and educational success.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention documented that up to more than 600,000 children are born each year with chord blood mercury levels great enough to result in diminished IQs. Deeply think about this.

Probably because I was extremely traumatized in many different ways, I have always been obsessively curious about health and social problems. Having lived in a primitive area, which had only non-electrified wells and cesspools during six years of my childhood, and having traveled around “developed” and “underdeveloped” countries, polluted and unpolluted environments, have given me additional insights into peoples’ health, behavior, attitudes, etc.

Obvious symptoms of deterioration are pervading much of our society. Therefore one must conclude that our pervasive spiritual and physical self-polluting are great contributing causes of our declining quality of life.

Up into the sixties there was almost no public discussion about how to educate children. Everyone was generally healthier, because of a cleaner environment, more nutritious food etc. Children were able sit still, concentrate on their tasks and learn more easily. Since then we have tried evermore revolving programs to raise our declining educational results, but with little success at best. My long-time research indicates that this is partly because the electro-chemistry of our bodies is changing in response to our changing chemical intake. These chemicals come mostly in the air we breathe, water we drink, and the ever-greater amounts of “junk food” we gulp.

That’s why we have the sadly humorous Darwin Awards for people taking the most unbelievable stupid actions, which nearly, or do, kill them. And informed people are fleeing to areas of lesser pollution and try to eat more nutritious, “organic,” foods, if they can afford to do so.

But besides mercury, there are literally thousands of man-made chemicals around the earth. A few school districts have realized this, and have had the courage to take a step in the right direction to eliminate addictive “junk foods” from school lunches and vending machines, even though they will “lose money” doing so.

If we really want to help our children, then the first and best actions we can take, is to strive to get everyone into the best of health by purifying our bodies and our environment. If we don’t, no amount of money spent on “education” will yield better results, because our bodies and brains cannot function properly.
