I hverdagen får nordmen i seg store mengder av disse kjemiske stoffene.
Jeg vil gjerne skape en sakllig debatt rundt dette.
Starter med litt info rundt hva disse stoffene egentlig er og hva det gjør med oss.
MSG is injected into laboratory rats to induce obesity. It also has been shown to increase appetite in male rats and to induce obesity in female rats and chickens. Scientists in Spain have recently concluded that MSG when given to mice increase appetite by as much as 40%.
The treated animals showed extensive evidence of malignant cancers including lymphomas, leukemias, and tumors at multiple organ sites in both males and females. The authors speculate the increase in lymphomas and leukemias may be related to one of the metabolites in aspartame, namely methanol, which is metabolized in both rats and humans to formaldehyde. Both methanol and formaldehyde have shown links to lymphomas and leukemias in other long-term experiments by the same authors.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 32% of American children now have some form of dental fluorosis, with 2 to 4% of children having the moderate to severe stages (CDC 2005).
Reputable researchers from such as Harvard and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and numerable other research investigators, have shown that fluoridation of drinking water can result in brain and other physiological damage producing such abnormalities as:
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) Hyperactivity or passive malaise -- depending on whether exposure is pre- or postnatal Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia The death of brain cells directly involved in the decision making processes Cracked, pitted and brittle teeth and bones not being considered as a potential leading cause of osteoporosis Higher hip fracture rates Reduction in intelligence and increased learning disability
What did they find? Very high fluoride concentrations -- as high as 8.3 milligrams per liter (mg/L) -- were measured in the well water of the high fluoride group while the control group's well water had just 0.5 mg/L of fluoride.
The percentage of children with IQ scores less than 70 increased from 0 in the control group to 4% in the high fluoride group. The percentage of children with IQ scores greater than 109 was 41% in the control group and decreased to 30% in the high fluoride group. Overall, children in the high fluoride group had a four-point reduction in IQ score as compared to the control children. Measured fluoride in the urine was almost five times higher in the high fluoride exposed children than in the controls (5.1 mg/L versus 1.5 mg/L in controls). All of these associations were statistically significant.
For years, killing rodents was sodium fluoride's most popular use until dentists latched onto the idea that feeding just little bits of fluoride to little children might prevent cavities.
You probably assume that the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) or some other governing body tests, studies and assures the safety of all drugs, including the doctor-prescribed fluoride tablets caring parents feed their children. After all they wouldn't sell it if it wasn't safe?
But neither the FDA nor any other regulatory body ever tested the safety or effectiveness of fluoride tablets.
Jeg bruker mye amerikansk forskning fordi de har blitt utsatt for disse kjemikalene i lengere tid og i større doser.
Jeg vil gjerne høre hvor mye folk vet om disse kjemikalene og hvor mye fokus det får i hverdagen.
Er farene overdrevet eller er det et problem som fortjener mer fokus?
