Well then you really need to look at his history. It's not hidden and it's not warped. It's all available on youtube for your consumption in all it's glory and disappointment. It's no secret that he perpetuates a two sided hypocrisy in what he says and what he does. I forget the exact name of the video where he appears in the rally in Texas and overthrows it with his agenda whilst pretending to be on the side of the protestors. I'm sure another member can elaborate with the details. It says a lot about him unfortunately or fortunately. Sour grapes.. it's not.

And also. It was Bill Cooper that suggested that you do your own research and not take his word for it. AJ stole that (as well as the 9/ll prediction) as have many sinse his murder. AJ has even tried to duplicate BC in trying to copy his timing in unusually awkward timings and pauses. The guy is not even a clever fraud. He will always be a wery well paid fraud. He will never be a Bill Cooper however no matter how much he tries. Some very very dangerous people just never seem to die do they?

Well if Fluoride did indeed lower IQ, then you'd imagine that you would see a trend of lowering IQ since it was first introduced into our water systems in the 40's.....This is NOT the case. IQ's have been steadily rising for at least the past century at an average rate of 3 points per year.


You would imagine there to be a sudden drop of IQ at around the time it was introduced....but no, this is clearly not the case...Therefore this idea is pretty easily debunked.

Whoops, I only noticed now that I made a small mistake. Too late for me to go back and edit it, but since no one has called me out on it yet, I thought I'd set the record straight.....I meant to say '3 points per decade' not '3 points per year'.

Alex Jones talks so much crap, that even when he says something that is true, we just ignore what he says. While he MIGHT be saying the truth, there are plenty of other people to get your information from. Alex Jokes, is one of the worst conspiracy theorist.

Drink it if you want, I don't.
I can make informed decisions based on my own comprehension of available research.

I don't need Alex Jones to tell me anything.
Years ago he was part of the catalyst that pushed me to look deeper.
He is a fabulous "useful idiot" if you can get past him and move on.

Yes I have studied history way before youtube existed also. Even read many well researched books - Gasp!
What is this two sided Myth he perpetuates that you speak of.?
Yes I have seen the rally you speak of - Sure Alex Jones is like a Bull at a Gate - Did I ever say he is perfect or 100% correct in all he does and says?.
So what are you trying to say here regarding the subject of additives in the drinking water or is it all about attacking Alex Jones?

You forgot to say In your Opinion - Who is this We you talk of - Do you talk for We - you certainly do not talk for me
So you do not like Alex Jones - big deal - What about Fluoride in drinking water = What are your thoughts on that.

The video of this thread alone proves that it's not "sour grapes".... In the video, Jones says 20 IQ points lost... That is Alex Jones lying....

If you want more proof that he's a liar, watch 42 Failed Alex Jones Predictions

In fact, just check out the entire AlexJonesClips YouTube channel... It demolishes him.

I agree with you on this.


And then.... it says....


Conclusions
Children’s intelligence and growth can be affected by high concentrations of As or fluoride


So.... it says there is IQ reduction with the HIGH CONCENTRATION group, meaning 8.3 parts...


the Conclusion even says only that there CAN BE. Not there IS.
Anyway, what does a bunch of toothpaste-eating kids in Chinese villages have to do with American tap water?

If anything, I guess it means all the people who are considered brilliant the world over, who have collectively discovered so much over the last 60 years would be even SMARTER than they already are....wouldn't that be a nice world...where everyone was "exceptional" and "gifted". We'd finally maybe get out of our cave-man kill-'em-all rut.

IQ is a myth anyway. We are immersed every day in things that can be "toxic" and affect IQ. The body is incredibly resilient, and we consume -- even need -- lots of stuff that in big doses can kill you. Like water.

I've been drinking tap water for over 50 years....it's hard enough being bright in a world of average. I don't think I'd WANT to be a savant-type genius -- it would drive me TOTALLY insane having to put up with "average" IQs (it already irritates the hell out of me!)

Maybe Swills could find a new hobby-subject. Teflon is a good one...
or what about the chlorine we all drink and pools are filled with?
have at it!

EDIT because it looked like I was talking to food4thought, not Swills when I started off. My bad.
Thanks for this thread. The paranoia on this site is amazing to me sometimes.

Well assuming that Alex jones is drinking tap water in the United States that is lowing people IQ perhaps he himself is living proof.

A new hobby? You think fluroidated water is a hobby of mine? You do understand what a hobby is right?

Hobby

An activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure.


Maybe you're not as bright as you think you are.

And if you have problems with the Chinese studies (

Is that why poor people who can't afford bottle water mostly vote Democrat?

Sorry couldn't help it...



BTW who drinks tap water anyways?

I wonder how much tap water Alex Jones has drank....It appears he has consumed millions of gallons......I'll pray for him.

So besides attacking Alex Jones what about the most important part of this topic
What about the chemicals put into the drinking water

Lol - I also suggest you do your own research so am I stealing that line also
You need to provide proof of your accusations to be taken seriously

The average I.Q. in the USA is not 100. It's not even close to that high. That's a huge untrue myth. The real number is closer to 83.

You know what completely defeats this claim? The fact that IQ has been increasing. Studies show that average IQ increases about 3 points every decade. It's for this reason that the Stanford-Binet (the standard IQ test) needs to be recalibrated every once in a while so that the average IQ is measured at 100. One would think that if Jones' claim was actually true we should expect to see drastic decreases in IQ as the prevalence of fluoridation has increased.


I think my I.Q. just lowered 3 points after reading your post.

He means, RADIATION. But won't say it I guess. Lauren Moret talks about the tests done decades ago, with the manhatten project era, where they noted that the SAT scores of US children dropped 12% from the 40's when they started atmospheric tests of plutonium nukes, to the 60's when it stopped.

The other chemicals may add to this.


Unity, one of the main components of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, was Fluoride. Radiation poisoning is radiation poisoning.

If that is true, then it means nothing....

OK.... There is fluoride in big bags that you can purchase in bulk..... If you chugged down a bag of fluoride, you would die....

But there is also fluoride in toothpaste, which is fine, so long as you spit it out.

And there is fluoride in tap water, which is fine at around 1 part per million.

All this nonsense about "oh, it was used in the Nazi concentration camps".... or, "oh, it's bug poison".... This is all with much higher concentrations of fluoride.

OK..... Do people even understand what that means..? Like, if you take 10 spoons of sugar with your tea, that's going to taste like sugar, but if you have 1 spoon, you might not even notice it...

It feels as if some people on this website don't even understand this basic concept.

I prefer water to be clean IE free of added chemicals
By the way there is a medical warning on toothpaste containing Fluoride

''Warning: Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.''
