vb32668553 Glad you liked my previous comment on the environmental poisons effect on our memory. My particular focus is fluoridation chemicals which pervade everything. I'm also incensed over the heavy use of pesticides, pesticide ladened GMOs and unsafe medications rubber stamped by so-called regulatory agencies. 

 

Honestly, the only thing we can do to protect ourselves and our grandchildren is to get political and storm the offices of our state representatives and Congress. There is too much $money$ tied up in these industries for anything to work as it is supposed to. 

 

Case in point: A petition to the EPA from six organizations and a group of individuals with 46 pages of scientific citations, including 196 from just the past ten years is pending right now. It's regarding the neurotoxicity of fluoride and EPA authority under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The EPA is supposed to respond by the end of February 2017. I'm not holding my breath.

 

  • In 2006, the NRC advised the EPA their MCLG for fluoride in drinking water was unsafe, no action. 
  • In 2005, EPA scientists petitioned management to change the fluoride MCLG to zero, no action. 
  • In 1990s, EPA Sr. Scientist advised EPA fluoridation was causing or promoting cancer and should be banned, no action.  

 

Really, phone your politicans and AARP! Tell them this is an easy one. Turn off the spigot. Stop adding fluoridation chemicals to water supplies!

A breakfast of Eggs (PROTEIN) and Bacon from Natural Grocers or the like. (Free range chickens and no preservative bacon) cook with coconut oil. Gluten free and can actually help with weight loss. I am also a coffee drinker

I do believe diet and memory are connected.  I have tried to cut down on the carbs and sugars and am eating more colorful fruits and vegetables as well as low fat protein.  I believe exercise and mind expanding activites are just as important.
