of new lead poisoning identified. In addition there were over 500 lead
poisoning cases identified in children ages 6 to 17.
former employee of the EPA charges the US government with turning a blind eye
to the systematic poisoning of America's food supply, animals, water, and
officials estimate that 15% of the states' children diagnosed with elevated
lead levels between May 2001 and January 2002 were exposed to lead from candy,
pottery and folk medicines from Mexico.
D.C. Water and Sewer Authority
(WASA) reportedly became aware
of the lead levels in 2002, but did not notify customers until November 2003.
Lead supply pipes feed many older single family
homes of which over 150 had lead
levels of over 300 ppb. The federal safety level is 15 ppb.
2004 Researchers at Columbia University have found that
"babies exposed to high levels of lead in the womb are more than twice as
likely to develop schizophrenia in
adulthood." This is reportedly the first time an environmental toxin has been
linked to a later risk of
EPA data analyzed by the
identified 274 utilities serving some 11.5 million people who reported unsafe
lead in drinking water since 2000. The analysis also showed that municipalities
across the nation, Boston, Philadelphia, Lansing, New York and Washington D.C.,
are masking the true levels of lead in drinking
A study at Harvard Medical School found a
link to lead exposure and the development of cataracts in men over 60. The
study found that men who had the highest lead levels were 2.7 times more likely
to have cataracts than those with the lowest levels.
2005 One in five children tested in Cleveland, Ohio is lead

of lead poisoning caused by lead in household drinking water. The source of the
lead is believed to be household plumbing.
Wisconsin Supreme Court
found that "...the record is replete with evidence that shows the pigment
manufacturers actually magnified the risk [of lead poisoning] through their
aggressive promotion of white lead carbonate, even despite the

California's Attorney General joined environmental groups in a lawsuit against
retailers and distributors of children's jewelry after discoveries that the
jewelry contained lead levels as high as 950,000 parts per million. Defendants
settled the lawsuit by agreeing to pay $1.87 million. The settlement also
called for the companies to stop selling jewelry with high lead content no
later than 3/1/08. The settlement sets strict standards for the lead level in
children's' jewelry. Metal components and coatings will be limited to 600 parts
of lead per million. Plastic components will be limited to 200 parts of lead
"A new study in women 65 and older indicates that the more
lead circulating in the blood of golden girls, the higher the likelihood these
women will die prematurely." - Janet Raloff 04/06/09
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
