Fluoride

Fluoride continues to be added to our drinking water.  Did you know that by preparing a baby’s bottle using fluoridated water you could be causing irreparable damage?  Here are a few links which I urge you to view: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/fluoridegate/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=linkedin&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TopDocumentaryFilms+%28Top+Documentary+Films+-+Watch+Free+Documentaries+Online%29&goback=%2Egde_4044751_member_206185523 http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/01/20/fluoride-denialism.aspx?e_cid=20130120_SNL_Art_1&utm_source=snl&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20130120 Fluoride blocks the body’s uptake of iodine.  Australians, in particular Queenslanders, are chronically deficient in…

Stem Cells

Stem Cells are defined as:   biological cells found in all multicellular organisms, that can divide (through mitosis) and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts,…
