Speaking of the ingestion of toxic chemicals by children
Servetus July 1, 2016

(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — An unprecedented alliance of leading scientists, health professionals, and children’s and environmental health advocates agree for the first time that today’s scientific evidence supports a link between exposures to toxic chemicals in air, water, food and everyday products and children’s risks for neurodevelopmental disorders.

In a consensus statement published today in Environmental Health Perspectives, the alliance, known as Project TENDR (Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks), calls for immediate action to significantly reduce exposures to toxic chemicals and protect brain development now and for generations to come.

Neurodevelopmental disorders include intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and learning and other disabilities.[…]

The chemicals and pollutants highlighted in the consensus statement as contributing to children’s learning, intellectual and behavioral impairments are:

* Organophosphate (OP) pesticides

* Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) used as flame retardants

* Combustion-related air pollutants, which include polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter

* Lead, with primary sources of water pipes and paint

* Mercury

* Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), industrial chemicals that were commonly used in electrical equipment and now pollute landfills and water

More information on each of these compounds and how families can protect themselves from them is on the Project TENDR website: http://projecttendr.com .[…]

“This is truly a historic agreement,” said Irva Hertz-Picciotto, co-director of Project TENDR and professor of public health sciences at UC Davis and the UC Davis MIND Institute. “Ten years ago, this consensus wouldn’t have been possible, but the scientific research is now abundantly clear: toxic chemicals are harming our children’s brain development. As a society, we can eliminate or significantly lower these toxic chemical exposures and address inadequate regulatory systems that have allowed their proliferation. These steps can, in turn, reduce high rates of neurodevelopmental disorders.”

AAAS Public Release:
Scientists, physicians and advocates agree:
Environmental toxins hurt brain development

So the next time the prohibs pick on little old cannabinoids to scapegoat babies on pot, remind them of the industrial chemical complex that’s filled their children’s lives with polyvinylchloride plastic toys shaped like gummie-bears that outgas organo-toxins (PCBs).

Somehow, I don’t think the indicated chemical threat is going to get the same attention marijuana prohibition has received. However, if any of the indicated chemicals got children high, the media would be all over it.


Cannabis is the best natural expectorant to clear the human lungs of smog, dust, and the phlegm associated with tobacco use.

I say ECS deficiency from prohibition. Causing abstainers for 5 generations to have larger brain fear centers, leading to blind obedience, lower IQ parameters and Neurological illness is going viral without ECB's and EFA's supplementing their ECS. So afraid the hobgoblins these neocon prohibitioners spread like mustard. These Lesberals, if they get their way. They'll kick your doors down and outlaw the guns, Force healthy care on the whole family. Forced literacy and public education period.Then they'll read the bible backwards and burn the flag right on the electric cable spool dining table., Smoking a big ole marijuana cigarette. While having an abortion during a blind gay guy and his cell phones wedding. Preformed by a Black Atheist Little Midget People High Priest . Wearing Hemp bluejeans, speaking North Korean. With Kosher organic range fed, deglutened chemical free reception. NO Genetically Modified Organisms running round.. No transfat, unprocessed, artificial frankenfud, or factory farm victims. The horrors of No diet aspartame cocaine cola for breakfast? Just a hunch.

Pro Life? Not even anti abortionists...
Monsanto over spraying from the Bible Belt Cotton to Colombian coca cola fields.

Hemplastic or Fossil Fools Crud
Homegrown Family Farm Organic renewable biodegradible Carbohydrates or Foreign War, Polluting nonrenewable Hydrocarbons lasting centuries in landfills or bobbing in sludge islands in the ocean. Auto body from homegrown Hemp or Coal to coke fired sheet metal. Polyester or Hemp diapers to evening gowns to blue jeans. Hempseed and Omega 3. 6 and 9 EFA's. The most nutritionally complete food on the planet. Supplement fast frankenfud and cut down obesity.
Monsanto’s Dirty Dozen mega-deal With Bayer Heroin for Children
We should have learned after Sacharrin, or DDT, Dioxins and PCB's. The terminator tech Cliarence Thomas x Monsanto lawyer said could be patented. Or Rumsfeld's Aspartame fast tracked while Ganja can't even get tested. GMO banned in countries still thinking people matter more than profits. Killing Colombia as they did Vietnam with Agent Orange and like a chickenhawk chicken little politician, they keep coming back.and the people keep buying their crap

Lead-Safe Hemp Housing
Hemp oil paint without lead or Hemp PVC without crude. No dead trees required.

Chernobyl disaster: Cleaning it up with Hemp
Long roots not only aerating the soil, bringing back bugs and their natural fertilizer dressing the fields without chemical adulteration. The long roots clean the radioactive contamination and chemical dumps, military bases and industrial sites. Cities contaminating for decades. Plant it along river banks as it used to grow naturally..

Drug Worriers preferred methods of treatment…

They get em coming and going.
Corporate Chemicals making them sick then...
Subsidiary Fat Pharma Chemicals treating the sickness.

Think of the message being sent to the kids?

Well, not these kids I guess...

DMT The War on Consciousness

"The real widespread war the rages every day is a war not for anything more than our consciousness, and it affects everyone under the top 1%" -- Graham Hancock

“Consciousness Creates Reality” – Physicists Admit The Universe Is Immaterial, Mental & Spiritual

Quote Arjun Walia, Nov. 11, 2014:

Consciousness creates reality,” a statement that has gained a lot of attention across various alternative media outlets around the world. Make no mistake, consciousness has been (for quite some time) studied by numerous scientists, especially in its relation to quantum physics and how it might be correlated with the nature of our reality.

What is consciousness? Consciousness includes a number of things. It’s how we perceive our world, our thoughts, being aware, our intentions and more.

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking in the radio for the announcer.” – Nasseim Haramein, director of research for the Resonance Project

“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” – Max Planck, theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918

“It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.” Eugene Wigner, theoretical physicist and mathematician. He received a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1963

The statement that “consciousness creates reality” comes with a number of different questions. Does this mean we as individuals (and on a collective level as one human race) can shape and create whatever reality we’d like for ourselves? Does it mean we can manifest a certain lifestyle, and attract certain experiences? Does it happen instantly? Does it take time? How do we do it?

Although we might not be able to answer these questions with absolute scientific certainty, we do know that yes, a correlation between consciousness and our physical material world does indeed exist in some way, shape or form. The extent of that correlation (again from a modern day scientific point of view) is still not well understood, but we know of the correlation, and we know it must have some sort of significance.

"I should mention that DMT is an endogenous neurotransmitter. Yes, DMT, the most powerful of the hallucinogens occurs in the human brain as a normal part of metabolism. It also is a Schedule I drug, so you're all holding and this _might_ be the basis for some kind of case. To just show what absolute poppycock all this nonsense is: People Have Been Made Illegal!"
~ Terence Mckenna

The Non-Ordinary Conhibition Rhetoric of Terence McKenna

People have a right to get stoned. They have a right to think and explore their own minds. This is as intimate a part of their being as their sexuality. Any culture which mitigates that is clearly afraid of a full and fair and open dialogue about what reality is and what real human values ought to be.
~ Terence McKenna

When I started seeing more on subatomic particles and the same vast distance inward as there is outward in space. It related Consciousness theories in a physical way I could relate to better. It seems the exploiters for profits want "outer" space for dragging back the same fossil fools crap they're running out of here.

While what is in-between the atoms could be a grid that connects emotional frequencies when reaching certain levels of awareness or trauma or consciousness. To connect with atoms elsewhere, to aid in whatever the crisis is. More than mere coincidence, prayer or miracles. Just a reality we haven't funded studies on. Funding goes to profits in the world of atoms making products. Treating problems over curing or prevention that this subatomic world might offer.

I think Ganja transmitters can also possibly reach these grids, as well as other Entheogens. THC Transmitters and Receptors sounds like a radio. Is that the great secret the government wants to keep from the people? Why it makes no sense to outlaw such a helpful plant, yet they do. I've wondered if one person could send signals to another persons receptors and pass info without physical apparatuses, and profits selling them. I've never found any telekenetic ability in all my years of toking. I might be tempted to buy a lottery ticket.

20% of America's water supply has lead poisoning according to a recent EPA study.

Australia identified the risk of lead in 1904 and within 15 years had an international lead ban treaty that the world signed on to with the exception of USA. Carter signed it in 1979 so Americans were poisoned with brain retarding chemicals for 60 years because it was profitable. Americans value profit more than life itself (ie no gun safety, so toddlers are killing people about once a week).

American ignorance is widely known abroad, but at least now we know why.

Ironically, lead poisoning might be related to the gun nut's mental disabilities. They really believe someone is going to try to take their guns, so of course you must buy whatever model was used in the most recent mass murder, which happens about once a week. Lead poisoning causes an irrational worship of the gun god usually including a blue steel calf instead of golden one. They accept human sacrifices committed with lead bullets to prove their allegiance to the gun gods.

Sadly, today a father killed his teenage son at a gun range. It was an accident, so I'm sure that makes his mom happy. A mom killed all her kids last week because god told her to, just like abe. God didn't stop her so he must have wanted it.

Country Club type Gun ranges are very popular now. Ranges, Restaurants, bars and places to socialize. But they have one problem that it is not discussed enough. Lead poisioning. Many sources in a google search.

Democracy Itself Is on Trial

Thom plus logo While Donald Trump is on trial in the Senate impeachment hearings, many commentators are pointing out that the Senate is also at trial. Few, however, are pointing out that the fare and future of our country may will also be decided by this trial.
