Scientist Attacked for Fluoridation Facts

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Christine Till, Ph.D., an associate professor at York University in Toronto, Canada, has published several damning studies showing fluoride damages the brain and lowers IQ
  • In 2019, Till received the President’s Emerging Research Leadership Award (PERLA) from York University for her research into the neurotoxicity of fluoride exposure
  • After giving a lecture at a recent conference that included speakers who question the safety of mercury and vaccines, a group of 14 scientists are calling for an independent review of Till’s work on fluoridation “to determine whether her ‘ideology is being misrepresented as science’”
  • For now, it doesn’t appear as though York University will comply with the call for an independent probe into Till’s research and public statements about water fluoridation
  • Depositions by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials in 2018 have also confirmed the agency does not have any safety data on fluoride intake and neurotoxic effects. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also does not have any data showing fluoride intake is harmless to the brain. Meanwhile, more than 400 animal and human studies have found fluoride is neurotoxic and damages the brain

Unique Glucosinolates Found in Moringa

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Glucosinolates are phytochemical compounds that are found in cruciferous vegetables and Moringa, a plant recognized for its medicinal purposes for centuries
  • Glucosinolates are metabolized into bioactive isothiocyanates. The primary isothiocyanate in Moringa is moringin. Like sulforaphane in broccoli, moringin has powerful antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects
  • Researchers recently discovered a novel type of glucosinolate in wild forms of Moringa oleifera dubbed 4GBGS. Domestic forms of Moringa oleifera, or those specifically grown for human consumption, also had some levels of 4GBGS, but in much lower concentrations
  • Moringa also contains all nine essential amino acids and has been shown to lower blood pressure, modulate immune function and protect the health of your organs

Metabolic Inflexibility Is Key Risk Factor for COVID-19

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • While SARS-CoV-2 is a rampant virus that can cause severe problems in vulnerable individuals, the real pandemic — the underlying cause that makes people susceptible to complications from the infection in the first place — is poor metabolic health
  • Aside from old age, obesity has been identified as one of the primary risk factors for being hospitalized with COVID-19 — doubling the risk of hospitalization in patients under the age of 60 in one study
  • One hypothesis for why obesity is worsening COVID-19 has to do with the fact that obesity causes chronic inflammation. Having more proinflammatory cytokines in circulation increases your risk of experiencing a cytokine storm
  • Insulin resistance is another top risk factor for COVID-19 that worsens outcomes and increases your risk of death
  • There are five primary parameters of metabolic health: waist circumference, insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and triglyceride and HDL levels. Having three or more abnormal parameters is indicative of metabolic syndrome
