A Whopper and Fries, With a Side of Statins and Flouride

Monday, August 16, 2010

No joke – doctors are acknowledging that giving away statins, free of charge, along with that non-food known as fast food, could be a great idea.

In a paper published in the American Journal of Cardiology, Dr Darrel Francis and colleagues calculate that the reduction in cardiovascular risk offered by a statin is enough to offset the increase in heart attack risk from eating a cheeseburger and a milkshake.

…”When people engage in risky behaviours like driving or smoking, they’re encouraged to take measures that minimise their risk, like wearing a seatbelt or choosing cigarettes with filters. Taking a statin is a rational way of lowering some of the risks of eating a fatty meal.”

There’s been some strong evidence that there is an epidemic of asininity within the medical establishment. Perhaps Big Pharma has a drug for that?

Then we have the government’s flouride pushers. If you think that only tin-foil hat-wearing conspiracy kooks evoke the flouride issue from the depths of their conspiracy-laden souls, think again. The Ohio Department of Health has announced it will “help eradicate dental disease” by pushing a flouride mouthrinse program in the public school prisons.

The Ohio Department of Health’s school-based fluoride mouthrinse program will be reinstated for the upcoming school year.

The health department suspended the program last year after state representatives passed a bill that required any prescription medications given to students in school to be administered by health professionals. Gov. Ted Strickland signed legislation in May that made an exemption for fluoride mouthrinse.

…Schools will allot 5 minutes each week to passing out cups of fluoride solution to students, swishing the fluid and disposing of garbage

The article goes on to talk about communities that don’t have flouridated water, and their increase in … cavities? So now we have the “War on Cavities?” Does that come before or after the war on terror and the war on obesity? Thanks to Travis Holte for the flouride story.

    I saw a gallon of water at the grocery store that said in bold it had extra fluoride – For Infants!

    Didn’t Europe actually REMOVE flouride from their drinking water supplies for the sole reason that fouride has been shown to be so toxic?

    Am I way off base here? (mebbe misread the article I can’t find – somewhere on Dr Mercola’s web site – doh!)

    I have also read from both Sisson (Mark’s Daily Apple) and Mercola that statins should be the LAST thing you put into your body due to the killer side effects…

    Here is some back-up to my questions:

    I did not try to recover the link for statins from Mercola.

    RE: School mandated fluoride rinses

    This is a predictable consequence of the state interceding into the rearing of our youth; Education, health, activity, et cetera, ad nauseum. Parents, who should have the sole obligation of child rearing, have willingly ceded it to representatives of the state. Now these “benevolent overlords” have molded three generations of Americans into obedient servants of the bankster/politico oligarchs. Of course, this analysis totally side-steps the real reasons and dangers of fluoridation…

    Ok, check your LRC yahoo email, I couldn’t readily find your KDC email address, and I’m in a rush at the moment.

    I just went through some of the class pictures of my elementary school classes. There was only one fat kid in the class.

    Now school kids take the school bus if they live over half a mile from the school. Government meddling helped cause obese kids. But it’s OK folks – just take a pill – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6FYVRn2_cY

    And I might add, the safety cap on that jug of Mother’s Choice had the tightest seal I’ve ever come across in a food product. To keep the fluoride from turning into a gas and escaping before it reached its intended target, …er I mean infant, I suppose.
    I opened one up and it smelled like a swimming pool liner, it wasn’t as strong an odor as the water in a swimming pool, but it was noticeable.

    Walgreen’s has one too. The brand name of the water is called Nursery – and it has a pretty label, not only that but in addition to fluoride for infants it has added minerals as well. i wonder what those are, I didn’t read the label to find out.

    And as most people know, Walgreen’s has a great big banner outside stating you cab come on in and get flu shots any time, no appointment necessary.

    Gday! I hope you do not mind but I decided to publish your website: http://karendecoster.com/a-whopper-and-fries-with-a-side-of-statins-and-flouride.html to my online directory. I used, “Karen De Coster » A Whopper and Fries, With a Side of Statins and Flouride” as your web site headline. I hope this is alright with you. However, if you’d like me to change the title or perhaps remove it completely, contact me at Mountcastle986@gmail.com. Thank you.
