When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago).
Indeed, the choice of physics as a profession was then a guarantor of a life of poverty and abstinence—it was World War II that changed all that. The prospect of worldly gain drove few physicists. As recently as thirty-five years ago, when I chaired the first APS study of a contentious social/scientific issue, The Reactor Safety Study, though there were zealots aplenty on the outside there was no hint of inordinate pressure on us as physicists. We were therefore able to produce what I believe was and is an honest appraisal of the situation at that time. We were further enabled by the presence of an oversight committee consisting of Pief Panofsky, Vicki Weisskopf, and Hans Bethe, all towering physicists beyond reproach. I was proud of what we did in a charged atmosphere. In the end the oversight committee, in its report to the APS President, noted the complete independence in which we did the job, and predicted that the report would be attacked from both sides. What greater tribute could there be?
How different it is now. The giants no longer walk the earth, and the money flood has become the raison d’être of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs. For reasons that will soon become clear my former pride at being an APS Fellow all these years has been turned into shame, and I am forced, with no pleasure at all, to offer you my resignation from the Society.
It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.
This letter from a very well known and respected American scientist is just another (very welcome) nail in the coffin, of the global warming scam.
In what was intended to be a on camera interview early Saturday morning turned into something very different.
When I arrived downtown, I discovered that the memory card for our camera was not working, but decided to go with an off camera interview.
The off camera interview that started at 8:30, ended up being a 3 hour conversation covering many topics (that really felt more like just having coffee with a friend). That I walked away from with a very good feeling about.
Richard really seems the grasp the common sense issue's facing Brantford, in a way that I have not heard from any other candidates as of this point.
The first topic I asked about was water fluoridation. Richard was very aware of the risks involved with the addition of fluoride to the public water supply. And fully agreed that the public should have a choice in the matter.
After seeing the lack of knowledge that many other city employee's had about fluoride, Richards knowledge was a breath of fresh air.
When asked about the effects of NAFTA and the coming North American Union on Brantfords economy, His response was that it is very obvious. When you look at our manufacturing industry. We have lost countless jobs, and business's in that Field.
Another point that Richard brought up about our local economy is the excess of temporary employment agencies.
In a city of 91,000 people there is over 150 temp agencies that employ nearly 40,000 people. These agencies do not give benefits, and rarely pay more then minimum wage. How can we expect the working class families to survive on this Richard asks.
In Richards opinion there has to be incentives for companies that come to Brantford, to hire people rather then using these types of agencies.
On the issue of the Native Land claims Richard believes that the city can no longer write up a plan, present it to the Native people, and wonder why they find problems in it. We need to include all sides in the planning. Which to me just sounds like common sense once again!
What impressed me the most with Richard is the fact that he does not accept any corporate sponsorships. It is his belief that if we want a change in our community, it does not make any sense to keep trying the same things over and over again and expect different results.
Richard is a great candidate for the mayor of Brantford, and I will look forward to hearing more from him.
Dr Hardy Limeback, former President of the Canadian Association of Dental Research and current Head of Preventive Dentistry at the University of Toronto, is now calling for the end of water fluoridation. Limeback, a former proponent of fluoridation changed his mind in the wake of new studies showing little benefit to teeth from ingesting fluoride, and a growing body of research indicating links between fluoride and adverse effects including hip fracture, cancer and arthritis.
Fluoride avoidance reduced anemia in pregnant women, and decreased preterm births, according to a new study.
Anemia in pregnancy can lead to maternal and infant mortality; it continues to be a problem despite nutritional counseling and maternal iron and folic acid supplementation.
Medical News Today reports:
“Anemic pregnant women living in India, whose urine contained 1 mg/L fluoride or more, were separated into two groups. The experimental group avoided fluoride in water, food and other sources ...
Results reveal that anemia was reduced and pre-term and low-birth-weight babies were considerably fewer in the fluoride-avoidance group.”

Dr. Mercola's Comments:
Many people are confused about fluoride and they believe that since it is “naturally” found in some water supplies it should be healthy and necessary for optimal human health.
While the logic is sound, it just isn’t true for fluoride. It is a poison when added to the water supply as most U.S. cities do, and it is a poison when occurring naturally as this study demonstrates.
This study was conducted in India, which is one of several countries known to have dangerously high levels of fluoride in their drinking water. This poison comes into contact with water supplies naturally when rocks containing fluoride erode or volcanic activity spews fluoride-containing ash into the air, allowing the colorless, odorless substance to enter groundwater.
In areas where naturally occurring fluoride is high, serious health problems usually become apparent, and that is, unfortunately, what's happening now in India where children are suffering vision loss and bone deformities due to high fluoride exposure.
This study, however, has major implications not only for people in India but for those all over the world who are exposed to fluoride. In the United States, for instance, fluoride is intentionally added to water supplies, putting unborn children at risk.
Fluoride Poses Serious Risks for Pregnant Women and Their Unborn Children
In this latest study, when anemic pregnant women avoided fluoride in their water, food and other sources, their anemia was reduced and premature and low-birth-weight babies were significantly less likely compared to pregnant women exposed to fluoride.
Anemia is a serious complication during pregnancy that can lead to both maternal and infant death, and it appears that fluoride may play a direct role in causing this dangerous condition.
Specifically, fluoride may damage the gastrointestinal mucosa, leading to impaired nutrient absorption and related illnesses like anemia. It has also been linked to:
* Decreased red blood cells
* Reduced blood folic acid activity
* Inhibitions in vitamin B12 production
* Non-absorption of nutrients for hemoglobin synthesis
When the pregnant women avoided fluoride, however, their intestinal lining regenerated, leading to enhanced nutrient absorption and reduced anemia, along with a decreased risk of pre-term birth and improved birth weights for their babies.
In the United States, a similar connection has also been made. Researchers from the State University of New York reported that premature births were more common in communities with fluoridated drinking water than those with non-fluoridated water.
More Reasons Why You Don’t Want to “Fluoridate” Your Baby
Fluoride is a drug. You can't get fluoride without a prescription, yet, if you live in the United States it's being added to your water supply on a mandatory basis at various levels that may or may not be safe for various individuals, especially children, pregnant women, the sick, and the elderly.
Approximately 50 percent of the fluoride that you ingest each day ends up accumulating in your bones over a lifetime. So you're steadily increasing the fluoride levels in your bones over time, which has been linked to arthritis-like symptoms such as joint pains and osteoporosis.
Fluoride also lowers thyroid function. It was used in medicine during the 1930s through 1950s in Europe to treat patients with overactive thyroid glands. This is a very real and significant concern, especially today as millions of people suffer with low thyroid function.
Fluoride in the United States is a Toxic Pollutant
Ninety percent of the chemicals used in fluoridation in the United States do not occur naturally.
Dr. William Hirzy from the EPA has pointed out that if it goes into the air, it's a pollutant. If it goes into the local water, it's pollution. But if the public water utilities buy it and pour it in your drinking water, it's no longer a pollutant. All of a sudden like magic it's a beneficial public health measure (even though fluoride has no benefits whatsoever when ingested).
But even the American Dental Association (ADA), which for many years was one of fluoride's biggest advocates, changed its tune a few years back and warned that parents of infants younger than a year old "should consider using water that has no or low levels of fluoride" when mixing baby formula.
The ADA was concerned about fluorosis, a condition caused by too much fluoride that damages the enamel of teeth and has been linked to more serious developmental problems. Studies have associated fluorosis with lower IQ, endocrine system problems, and skeletal damage.
How to Get Fluoride Out of Your Drinking Water
Sadly, for many people in India and other developing countries there is no access to safer water supplies or reverse osmosis filters that could remove the naturally occurring fluoride from the water, and now generations of children are growing up with serious health problems as a result.
There, the solution lies in securing safer water supplies or filters to remove the naturally occurring poison.
In the United States, there needs to be more pressure to prompt the government to stop adding this poison to municipal water supplies intentionally. The Fluoride Action Network has created a statement calling for an end to fluoridation worldwide that has now been signed by over 3,000 professionals.
We encourage all medical and science professionals to sign this statement.
In the United States, we're likely not going to be able to pass a federal law against fluoridation. There is not going to be a Presidential mandate or even a statewide elimination. This change will occur one community at a time.
So stay tuned, as we will be working to devise a complete game plan to tackle this issue head on. Once we reach the tipping point, which may be as little as 5 percent of the population, we will be able to reverse the policies of water fluoridation.
Until then, you can remove about 80% of the fluoride from your drinking water using a reverse osmosis (RO) filter. It is really hard to remove all of it with virtually any commercial filter. If you are concerned about fluoride the BEST solution is to help the Fluoride Action Network in their campaign to remove it from the water supply.
Keep in mind, too, that water is not the only source of added fluoride.
Although you may not know it, you are exposed to fluoride from many sources other than the obvious lineup of toothpastes and mouth rinses (which I recommend using fluoride-free versions of as well).
Far less obvious sources of fluoride, which I highly recommend avoiding, include:
* Food and beverages processed with fluoridated water
* Mechanically de-boned meat
* Pesticide residue on food
* Pharmaceutical drugs, especially SSRI antidepressants and fluoroquinolone antibiotics like Cipro
* Soy baby formulas
* Instant tea
Two Excellent Fluoride Resources
Professor Paul Connett has informed us that on September 17 he and several other scientists and concerned citizens from the UK, Ireland, Austria and the United States testified before a hearing on water fluoridation organized by the EU’s Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) in Brussels.
Connett and others raised many concerns about fluoride’s ability to damage your teeth, bone, brain and your endocrine system. They also stressed that there is little solid scientific evidence that ingesting fluoride actually reduces tooth decay.
Professor Connett left the committee a manuscript copy of the book he has co-authored on fluoridation that will be available in October from publisher Chelsea Green, VT, titled “The Case Against Fluoride: How Hazardous Waste Ended Up in Our Drinking Water and the Bad Science and Powerful Politics That Keep it There.” Advanced orders for the book can be placed at Amazon.com.
While you are waiting for this book to reach the shelves, Professor Connett urges people to get their own personal copy of the DVD “Professional Perspectives on Water Fluoridation.”
If you have yet to watch this DVD it is a wonderful 30-minute introduction to the issue from 15 highly qualified experts, including a Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, and three members of the important National Research Council panel that published a landmark review of the toxicology of fluoride in water in 2006.
Now that we are heading into the fall and winter months, it is so much more important for people to be eating properly and getting enough Vitamin C & D.
For low income families and the homeless this is not an easy task. They can receive help from various food banks, but about 95% of the food they recieve is processed and frozen. With very low nutritional value.
We want to change that with the Health Bank!
Our Goal is to provide highly nutritional raw foods to these people in need as well as providing vitamins to them. In the colder months nutrition and proper vitamin levels can be just as vital as a winter coat, and a warm place to stay.
Once a week we will go to the local food banks with as much as we can and hand it out to the people. But to be effective we need your help.
Think of the difference that one bottle of chewable vitamin D can make for children in a lower income family. Or the difference that a bunch of banana's and a bag of oranges could make.
Even a $1 donation from enough people can make a huge difference in our neighbors lives! And if you are unable to donate please pass this around to everyone that you know.
