This is a conspiracy website, but am I the only one that sees a potential conspiracy by the chinese to gain supremecy over the U.S. by "dumbing
down" our next generation?
As a student of the Roman civilization, it's an accepted theory that at least part of the reason for Rome's downfall was that the upper classes used
lead pipes for their plumbing, thereby exposing themselves and their children to the effects of lead poisoning. Aside: the Latin word for lead is
"plumbum" ----> which gives us our word "plumbing".
The effects of lead in the environment are a slowing of mental processes, even including retardation.
So now we find that many products, especially those destined for use by the very young (and most easily affected) in this country are made in china
and tainted with lead.
Throughout their history, the chinese have shown themselves to be very patient and willing to wait years for a strategy to unfold.
Maybe that's what they're doing to us now with lead poisoning.
A sort of "manchurian candidate-like" conspiracy ...
