To get to the realization that all you believed in, held close to your heart , is based on lies and deceptions is hard for a lot of people to grasp. It is easier to tow the line, be told who to be mad at, when to be happy, then it is to go against the grain.

Fluoride, TV talk radio and mental laziness...
An IQ study of children in communities with 2.38 ppm fluoride in their water vs. those with 0.41 ppm fluoride.
High fluoride exposure in drinking water: Effect on children's IQ, one new report. By Poureslami HR, et al. 2011. International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry 21(Suppl s1):47. (See Page 47, Abstract #O15-134)
Aim: We investigated the effect of chronic high fluoride (F) exposure on children‘s intelligence.
Design: In this cross sectional study two urban communities with similar socio-economic and cultural status but with different levels of F in drinking water, in the Kerman province, were studied: Koohbanan city (F 2.38 mg/L), Baft city (F 0.41 mg/L). Study samples consisted of 119 children 6–9 years old: 59 children from Koohbanan and 60 children from Baft. The Raven‘s test used to determine the effect of F exposures on children‘s IQ.
Results: In the low F area (control group) the mean IQ score of children was 97.80 ± 15.95 that decreased to 91.37 ± 15.63 for the high F group (Koohbanan‘s children), which was significantly different from the control group (P < 0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the findings, the chronic exposure to high levels of F can be one of the factors that influence intellectual development.
