High Levels of Arsenic Found In All U.S. Grown Rice

Parents of infants may want to avoid rice cereals and rice containing products all together due to the high arsenic content.  Perhaps starting infants on organic fruits and vegetables would be the best approach.

A Call To Action: First Do No Harm

A few months ago, I started making YouTube videos on pediatric topics. Until now it was just a casual thing prompted by my son Noah who had the interest in making videos. It has now become a major life mission and purpose. Let me explain so you can know my heart.

In 2002 or 2003, one of my patient’s mothers asked me to go to the DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) conference, that was coming to Portland. I went, I was blown away by the high quality of information and I literally wept (tears rolling down my cheek) as I realized we had poisoned a generation with the mercury that was in the vaccines. That started the journey. I attended many DAN! Conferences, and others and learned all I could. Autism rates did not drop, as I was sure they would. In 2005, 2006, 2007 then 2008 I had in my practice (my own patients) one new severe autistic boy by age two who was normal at age 1. I remember that day in November of 2008 when I walked into that room and saw that special little guy sitting in his stroller his head going back and forth and there was no eye contact, no language and “no one home”. Like a stab in the heart – I got the message. Forgive me Lord for it taking so long – to get the message.

I realized I could no longer vaccinate as “usual” that I would certainly not give the Hep B to newborns whose mothers did not have Hep B. I was already splitting out the MMR at that point, and this new passion led to the formation of Integrative Pediatrics LLC.

You see, something tragic happened in 2002. Just as they took out the mercury from most of the vaccines, they moved the Hepatitis B vaccine (with it’s 250 micrograms of aluminum) from giving it to teens (where it makes sense) to giving it to newborns. We now have studies showing aluminum neurotoxicity and an FDA rule not to exceed 4 – 5 micrograms of aluminum / Kg / day. So I ask: why would it be OK to inject 250 micrograms into a 3 Kg newborn? That’s 14 – 20 times the maximum allowable of a known neurotoxin. This year they are recommending giving the Dtap to pregnant moms (that has 330 + micrograms of aluminum!) and that fetus is even more vulnerable.

Raised by revolutionary parents in Africa, and taught to stand up for justice, fight for those without a voice, I was taught do the right thing even when the consequences might be harsh.

The medical establishment is pushing ALL the vaccines more than ever with health plans now looking at vaccine rates as a quality measure so that those doctors with poor rates are considered “bad doctors”. I think this is just the prelude to dropping doctors from health plans. I received a new family in my practice this past week who received a discharge letter in the mail from their pediatrician of 10 years that he could no longer see them if they did not come in that month and get all the required vaccines. Doctors are afraid and starting to comply, leaving no option for intelligent dialogue.

With that background and the realization that with YouTube we can reach every household in the world – the time is now. If not us – who, if not now – when, and the message is a careful but steady education about the truth. “The truth is singular, it’s version’s are the mistruth”. People will get this. It’s time to change the world.

Let’s join together to get the word out. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel “paulthomasmd” and share this email and information with your contacts.

As I’m sure you know, it’s not just the vaccines. Toxins are the issue, and for some, immune disruption and or viral infection with things like MMR live virus and other viral infections.

So YouTube is the vehicle to reach the world. Let’s get connected (Facebook, twitter, YouTube, email) and I will faithfully do my part to bring the important topics to our community. The truth shall set us free. We shall overcome. I grew up to that song.

Yours faithfully,

Address to Recent Claims in Defense of Childhood Immunization

Lately, you may have read in the news about vaccines and their relation to autism. In response, it lies evident that the truth is often clouded by social and political agendas.

We will continue to hear “no link between mercury and autism” and “no link between vaccines and autism” as the establishment fights to preserve the status quo and the current paradigm.  For a good read on the other side of this debate, I would recommend the David Kirby book “Evidence of Harm,” and the new book by Olmsted and Blaxill, “The Age of Autism”.  This later book starts the Introduction with a quote:

“You are not to expect visible proofs in a work of darkness. You are to collect the truth from circumstances, and little collateral facts, which taken singly afford no proof, yet put together, so tally with, and confirm each other, that they are as strong and convincing evidence, as facts that appear in the broad face of the day.”

-Judge Francis Buller To The Jury In A Murder Trial, 1781

Until the real studies are done where 10,000 or 100,000 children are not vaccinated or are vaccinated in different ways and then followed for the development of autism, we will be left with this void and lack of certainty. 

From Hippocrates 1860 and taught in all medical schools, we should attempt to “First do no Harm – Primum non nocere”

Pesticides May Be Linked to ADHD

Exposure to Pesticides May Increase
Occurrence of ADHD
 

New research reported in the June issue of Pediatrics, suggests that exposure to high levels of organophosphate pesticides may increase the odds for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children.

Going organic, buying at farmers’ markets and washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly before consuming them, is the best way to minimize pesticide exposure.

“Organophosphates are one of the most widely used pesticides in agriculture.”

In their study, Bouchard and her colleagues analyzed data on pesticide exposure and ADHD in more than 1,100 American children aged 8 to 15.

“The higher the level of exposure [as measured by metabolites in the urine], the higher the odds of having ADHD,” Bouchard added.

High doses of organophosphates may inhibit acetylcholinesterase, a nervous system enzyme, and may affect different growth factors and neurotransmitters.

These findings may provide another clue into the causes of ADHD, a condition which affects one in fourteen school-aged children, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Autism and other chronic disorders of brain and development may also be affected by pesticides, though this was not mentioned in this article.

At least one-third of fathers who have had ADHD in their youth have a child with ADHD.” Perhaps the inability to excrete (detox) pesticides is the possible reason.

The time is now to get serious about eating organic from the day of conception throughout our lives.
