Have you read the label of a “commercial” toothpaste and noticed that it says, if ingested,
call poison control? Do you know that this is because of the fluoride content in the toothpaste? Do you know the truth about fluoride? According to the handbook, “Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products,” fluoride is more poisonous than lead. It is actually a man made environmental pollutant and is a cumulative poison that accumulates in the body over time. It has been shown to cause skin eruptions, gastric distress, headaches,
cancer cell formation, Down’s syndrome, and hypothyroidism. The original studies that reported fluoride as … Read More
It’s time to change your deodorant! In 1993, the World Health Organization said, “There is a suspected link between Alzheimer’s disease and the toxicity of aluminum.” The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry reports that “exposure to high levels of aluminum may result in respiratory and neurological problems.” Aluminum, as an ingredient in deodorant, makes you smell nice by preventing toxins from leaving the body. The toxins that would have escaped in the sweat have nowhere to go. What’s more, “antiperspirants are designed to be absorbed”; therefore, the sweat glands and lymph glands in and around the underarms then … Read More

Among its many benefits are that it supports bone health. The body is able to manufacture vitamin D through sun exposure. However, during cloudy or winter months, it is difficult for the body to manufacture adequate amounts.
It is also responsible for maintaining normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus in order to help build strong … Read More
Following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, their nuclear reactors began leaking radiation. Considering which news sources you rely on, this may or may not be affecting you, here, so far away from Japan.
Please think about this with common sense: No amount of radiation is safe, and if it is in the environment, anywhere, via the rain, air, animals, etc., it is in some way going to affect us. You’ve also probably heard about stores selling out of potassium iodide as a means of protection against radiation. Because many people tend to be deficient in iodine, they will readily … Read More

We’re being zapped! The innovations in our technology are changing our lives in more ways than just convenience and social connectivity. They are also exposing us, in ways big and small, to an unprecedented number of electromagnetic fields. This invisible pollution
surrounds us twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and it interrupts our bodies’ natural flow of energy. For some people, this pollution has reached the point of toxicity, causing fatigue, irritability, weakness, and even illness. NITE has become a cell
phone free zone because of this health danger. Several years of research from studies
around the world … Read More
