  1. Fluoride no help for thinning bones

    Bad to the bone!

    Fluoride... for bone health?

    I'd laugh if the idea weren't so irresponsible, because fluoride is about as good for your bone health as a loan shark after you've missed a payment.

    The science is so clear on the bone-crunching risks of fluoride that even plenty of mainstream docs won't go near this stuff anymore. But for those who haven't gotten the message, a new study confirms -- yet again -- that it's absolutely 100 percent ineffective for senior women suffering from osteopenia.

    That's a bone-thinning condition that can lead to breaks, fractures, and even the far more serious osteoporosis.

    In the new study, 180 postmenopausal women were hoodwinked into taking either one of three daily fluoride doses -- 2.5 mg, 5 mg, or 10 mg -- or, for the lucky ones, a placebo.

    One year later, the women who ingested this poison had zip to show for it. Tests on bone mineral density in the hip and lumbar spine and tests of overall bone mineral density found no differences at all between women given the toxic supplements and women given the placebo.

    None!

    Now, it's one thing to simply fail to protect bone. But like I said earlier, fluoride can actually snap 'em like twigs. In the new study, there were zero fractures in the placebo group -- but FIVE spread out among the fluoride groups.

    And fluoride can do more than just break your bones. It's been linked to bone cancer and about a billion other risks -- up to and including making people DUMB.

    Maybe that's why the authorities are so eager to dump it into your water.

    If there's fluoride in your own water, there are two steps you need to take right now. First, install a reverse osmosis filter, which can remove fluoride and all the other common contaminants -- including drugs, hormones, and chemical waste.

    And second, contact your elected officials and tell them under no uncertain terms that you want the fluoride OUT.

    I'm not done with bone health yet. Keep reading!

  2. Tap water raises this risk by 500%

    Tap water raises this risk by 500%

    The most dangerous chemicals in your house aren't in your garage or basement -- they're flowing freely right from your kitchen sink.

    I don't care where you live, your drinking water is almost certainly contaminated with chemicals, hormones, drugs, toxic waste and more. And while it can wreak havoc on all sorts of bodily functions, one chemical in particular can be especially damaging to the menstrual cycle.

    If you're beyond that time of life, this will be something you'll want to pass along to your daughter.

    The chemical is called atrazine, the most commonly used herbicide in the nation, and women who live in areas where even a little bit leeches into the water are 500 percent more likely to suffer irregular menstrual cycles and 600 percent more likely to go six weeks between periods.

    Men, I'm sure you think that's just a minor inconvenience of the calendar. But in addition to giving women the stress of a pregnancy scare whenever a period doesn't arrive on time, irregular cycles are a sure sign of hormonal imbalances.

    In this case, the women suffered from dips in estrogen levels at key points in their cycles -- putting them at risk for fertility problems, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.

    Ready for the worst part of this? The atrazine-laced water these women have been drinking is considered perfectly safe by the U.S. government!

    It's nuts to think that ANY amount of herbicide is safe to drink, but the feds aren't exactly known for their common-sense approach to water standards -- and atrazine is a literal drop in the bucket here.

    There are thousands of other dangerous contaminants turning up regularly in U.S. drinking water -- and most of them are completely unregulated.

    But don't rush to stock up on bottled water, and don't waste your time with little filters on your faucet.

    Head to the hardware store instead, and order a reverse osmosis filter. They're cheaper than ever and easy to install -- and they're the only guaranteed way to keep everything out of your water, including fluoride and chlorine.

    Just be sure to install it where the water enters your home, so every faucet is protected.

  3. Birthrates continue to plummet

    We're sure not making 'em like we used to -- and now, our birthrate has reached a dramatic new low, falling 2.6 percent to 13.5 live births for every 1,000 people last year, according to alarming new numbers from the National Center for Health Statistics.
  4. Tainted tea leads to fluorosis risk

    There's trouble brewing with tea -- and if you love your leaves, pay close attention to this one because you may not love them as much when I'm done.
  5. Bacteria in a bottle

    You don't need a fancy yogurt drink to get a mouthful of bacteria -- a plain old bottle of water will do just fine.
  6. How creams and lotions contribute to water pollution

    If you're slathering on topical creams, antibiotic ointments, medicated patches and hormone lotions, you're not just marinating yourself in unnecessary meds -- you're sharing them with your friends and neighbors as well.
