July 17, 2014,  KTAR TV, Phoenix:Gilbert gets new school for students with autism

July 16, 2014, KING5, Seattle: Metal fillings in your teeth could make you sick

 KTAR TV, Phoenix

This year, dozens of junior high and high school students with autism will have a new school of their own.

Pieceful Solutions, Arizona's first and fastest-growing K-12 school for children with autism spectrum disorders, is opening its newest campus on Higley and Ray roads in Gilbert, Ariz.

The first day of classes is Wednesday, July 22, and Ashley Nicoll is just as excited as her son, Timber, is to have a program designed for his special needs.

Up until last year, Timber attended a public school, but Nicoll said it was not working for him.

"They had great teachers in the public school, and they tried so hard and did so much, but they aren't trained to help him," she said.

I really like hearing about schools like this. School districts have tried to pound the round pegs of autism into the square holes of the public school system.  BUT...this is also very scary.  The disorder with no known cause of cure, that affects almost two percent of children continues to be unrecognized for what it really is: AN EPIDEMIC.  We're building whole schools for disabled children who weren't here twenty-five years ago.  "This year, dozens of junior high and high school students with autism will have a new school of their own."  When are we going to demand to know why there are dozens of students with autism in the first place? 

Why weren't the regular school teachers trained to help a child with autism?

Stories like this are the real evidence of the disaster we call AUTISM.  It's incredible to see them come up day after day from around the country.  Even the name of the school, Pieceful Solutions, is a sign that autism--the puzzling disorder--is being accepted by everyone.

Dentists have been using dental amalgam to fill cavities for more than 150 years. Now one group is suing the FDA, claiming that people are getting sick and that silver fillings need to be banned.

"I was trying to avoid mercury when I was pregnant and nursing," said Amy Forseter. "I knew all the fish not to eat, but I had no idea it could be in my mouth."

Forseter has had more than a dozen cavities, most of them filled with dental amalgam, a mixture of metals that's 50 percent liquid mercury, a naturally occurring element that's highly toxic.

"As soon as I learned that I had these toxins in my mouth, I wanted to immediately get it removed," said Forseter.

Some scientists have said the mercury from these fillings can leak and seep into the body and cause neurological problems for some people....

Earlier this month a group of dentists, scientists and patients filed suit against the FDA, claiming the agency hasn't done enough to address any potential health hazards of amalgam ...

I wonder how many people are aware that the "silver" fillings in their mouth, is really half mercury.

Im happy to see some attention on Age of Autism, to other mercury related disasters. What the American Dental Association has done both to patients and to their own gullible members is despicable. Can any of you think how many thousands of dentists, who would have lived longer lives, died of heart attacks or strokes from the mercury they had inhaled throughout their working lives. (See the work by N. Paranandi on the topic of the vascular endothelium to understand this). How many female dentists had health issues , premature children, autistic children because of the mercury exposure. How many people today and yesterday owe their Alzheimers Disease to the ADA ? Even today , as Europe has rejected mercury in dentistry,the ADA is still defending its use. Prisoners, men in the military, and poor people may have to choice but to accept mercury dentistry. God bless those who have initiated this lawsuit.
The most dangerous time of all is when the old mercury filling is drilled into for removal. This must be done with rubber dam, high speed vacuum and a mask for breathing an alternative oxygen source, or one is courting danger that ends up with liver, kidney damage, heart irregularities, loss of memory , thyroid damage, and of course, the possibility of a heart attack or stroke . If your own dentist wont do this, go to a biological dentist.
