Tigger: This thread is farking GOLD for figuring out whose who's a moron.
hardinparamedic: Fano: Well they use it in rat poison./and that's the end of the whole messThey also use Coumadin in Rat Poison. Why would they poison people with Atrial Fibrillation with it?!
GORDON: Brain damage? Well it would certainly explain all the city people on municipal water supplies voting democrat.Bazinga.
meat0918: At what concentrations and exposures?
Nesher: FTFA:To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, we propose a global prevention strategy. Untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity. To coordinate these efforts and to accelerate translation of science into prevention, we propose the urgent formation of a new international clearinghouse.Seriously? A pandemic? And IFUTAC, the authors are saying that all chemicals (and remember, almost everything is made up of chemicals - people, rocks, cheese, Soylent Green, water, air, food, boogers) need to be tested for neurotoxicity. I think this is akin to setting up an enterprise to count all the grains of sand on all the beaches in the world, or check every human being for every possible ailment - an infinite amount of research, taking an infinite amount of time, providing someone infinite employment.
walktoanarcade: FTFA: "Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants-manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers."I doubt brushing your teeth with it causes harm, but drinking it in your water all the time is stupid.And I am convinced that it lowers IQ. It must. There has to be something literally in the water./judge away
HoratioGates: I used to swallow my toothpaste when I was a kid, and I have an IQ in the 160's.I'm not sure why a kid with an IQ in the 160's would swallow toothpaste, but even we geniuses screw up sometimes, and I'm way too crazy and unfocused to do a study.
meat0918: Interesting.At what concentrations and exposures?If it is shown that current levels of exposure cause problems, we can address that.
noitsnot: It's a non-issue, since the American public drinks all of its water from polyethylene bottles. So that they can get a belly full of yummy plasticizers and solvents. Then those bottles can get "recycled" (snort).
skantea: At this point in history, if you don't realize that big business does not care about you as an individual then you deserve to be one of the 40% projected to get cancer. It's not a conspiracy, it's just money focused (greedy?) people passing the blame from the top down. In the end LEGALLY it will always be your fault you're sick.
SpacePirate: Yay, neurotoxicants in the water supply! Of course, keep calling those people that ask valid questions "crazy". Hell, even call them anti-science. That one works pretty well these days. Like the entire city of Portland, Oregon. /farkers//brushing your teeth works well too///just saiyan
