While on the immune system, here is a presentation by Keith Wassung on Natural Immunity vs Synthetic Immunity. It is about 40 minutes long, but well worth the time!
(It appears we can no long embed videos in this new format.)
"Aluminum quantities fluctuate naturally during normal cellular activity. It is found in all tissues and is also believed to play an important role in the development of a healthy fetus. This is supported by several findings:
During healthy pregnancies the amount of aluminum in a woman's blood increases.
The amount of aluminum in the blood of the fetus increases between four and a half and six months gestation and again at eight months gestation.
At delivery, the blood of full-term infants contains more aluminum than the mother's, but it decreases shortly after delivery.
The blood of premature infants has more aluminum than that of full-term infants.
The concentrations of aluminum in brain tissue are high during gestation and highest immediately after birth.
The breast milk of moms with premature infants contains more aluminum than that of moms who carried their babies to term."
So…aluminum increases as pregnancy goes along. How is that evidence that aluminum is safe or that extra aluminum is beneficial?? It is not.
Lead levels increase as pregnancy goes along as well.
"Blood lead levels increase during pregnancy, from 24 weeks of gestation until delivery, because of increased gastrointestinal absorption and because of an increase in bone turnover in this period (Hertz-Picciotto et al. 2000; O'Flaherty et al. 1995)"
Perhaps Offitt should pronouce that lead is essential to healthy fetal development? (sarcasm - although if vaccines contained lead, I could see him making the pronouncment).
There is a battle of two wolves inside us. One is good and the other is evil. The wolf that wins is the one you feed.
Book and herb loving mama to 1 preteen and 2 teens (when did that happen?). We travel, go to school, homeschool, live rurally, eat our veggies, spend too much time...
Here, take you daily dose of LEAD! It's Dr approved!
