Perchlorate salts, a chemical compound containing the perchlorate
ion, are produced industrially by the oxidation of solutions of sodium chlorate
2004 EPA published a draft
assessment which concludes that perchlorate is harmful to the

Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and
The average concentration of perchlorate in the milk
samples is 5.76 parts per billion (ppb).
38% of the samples had levels
over 6 ppb. Perchlorate is also found in 128 samples of lettuce from Arizona,
California, Florida, New Jersey, and Texas.
The States of Maryland and
Massachusetts adopted a safety limit on perchlorate in drinking water of 1 ppb.
California set a preliminary limit of 6 ppb for perchlorate in drinking
2005 Texas Tech University's Institute
of Environmental and Human Health finds perchlorate in virtually all
samples of women's breast milk at levels on average almost two times greater
than in cow's milk.
The highest levels found in breast milk, 92 parts
per billion (ppb) and 51 ppb came from two New Jersey women.
exceeding 30 ppb were found in women from New Mexico, Missouri and Nebraska.
The average for all samples was 10.5 ppb.
The study found that
a 9 pound baby drinking breast milk with 10.5 ppb of perchlorate would ingest
more than double the amount of perchlorate deemed safe by a recent National
Academy of Sciences (NAS) report.
The findings concern health experts
because infants and fetuses are the most vulnerable to the
thyroid-impairing effects of the
Perchlorate blocks the
nutrient iodide and
inhibits thyroid hormones,
which are necessary for brain development and cellular growth of a fetus or
A baby with impaired thyroid
development may have neurological defects that result in
lower IQ, mental retardation, loss of hearing
and speech and motor skills deficits.
American women with low
iodine levels exposed to a perchlorate concentration in the water of 4 parts
per million, 11 million people in 26 states, have
function which can lead to health problems in them and
abnormal brain development
in their offspring.
111,1 women tested had an average percholate
level of 2.9 parts per million.
EPA has identified 395 sites throughout
the country with ground
water contaminated by perchlorate - over half of which are in California
and Texas. Only 51 of these at this time are undergoing
2006 Suggested limit of percholate
in drinking water, modified by the George Walker Bush to 25 ppb, is 10 times
higher than it should be.
With any standard lower than
5 ppb, as research suggested, expected costs of cleanup to the DoD and several
of its major contractors is staggering.

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
forged 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 the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery
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 the Lumière Infinie 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 coöperation. Coöperation
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.
