Fluoride in Infant Formula Can Damage Babies’ Teeth, studies shows



Infant formula mixed with optimally fluoridated water -  0.7 mg/L, the level in most US tap water -  increases fluorosis risk (discolored or pitted teeth) for six-month-olds and younger, reports Harriehausen et al. in The Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry (January 2019)

Fluoride, the most celebrated tooth decay preventive, is controversial because safety and efficacy studies are questionable. 

Even fluoridation proponents admit “The primary adverse effects associated with chronic, excess fluoride intake are enamel and skeletal fluorosis,” according to the  Institute of Medicine; Food and Nutrition Board; Standing Committee on the Scientific Evaluation of Dietary Reference Intakes (1997) Dental fluorosis – white spotted, yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth – now afflicts 65% of US Teens

Harriehausen tested seven concentrated infant formulas:  powdered Similac Advance; powdered Similac Sensitive; powdered Similac Spit Up; liquid concentrate Similac Advance ; powdered Enfamil Infant; powdered Enfamil Gentlease; and powdered Gerber Soy. Ready-to-feed formula are reported elsewhere to have fluoride levels range from 0.08 to 0.32 parts per million (ppm) fluoride . 

Harriehausen found  that “using optimally fluoridated water (0.7 ppm) indicated that more infants are likely to exceed Adequate Intake  and Upper Limit (with infants aged two-, four-, and six-months being affected the most), thereby placing infants at great risk for dental fluorosis, which is consistent with other studies.” 

The adequate intake of fluoride to avoid moderate enamel fluorosis for infants up to 6-months-old is a mere 0.01 milligram a day – which is the level already in all infant formulas, concentrated, ready-to-feed or organic. 

 Many dental, health and government groups give advice to avoid routine mixing of infant formula with fluoridated water but fail to adequately inform the public seeming to protect fluoride’s image rather than infants’ teeth.

Harriehausen reports that significantly more infants, particularly those under six months old, exceed fluoride’s upper limit when consuming formula reconstituted with 0.7 ppm water, which increases the incidence and severity of enamel fluorosis.


The  American Dental Association description of moderate fluorosis: “All tooth surfaces affected; marked wear on biting surfaces; brown stain may be present”



Many other studies support Harriehausen’s conclusions:

Beltran-Aguilar and colleagues found children, even in sub-optimally (less than 0.7 ppm) fluoridated areas, with moderate and severe fluorosed teeth which is characterized by crumbling or pitting teeth that usually decay faster. "This severity was not observed in the 1930s among children drinking water with less than 1.3 ppm fluoride," the authors report. 

Levy reported in 2010: “Results suggest that prevalence of mild dental fluorosis could be reduced by avoiding ingestion of large quantities of fluoride from reconstituted powdered concentrate infant formula and fluoridated dentifrice”

Zohoori reported in 2012: “Some infant foods/drinks, when reconstituted with fluoridated water, may result in a F intake in infants above the suggested optimum range (0.05-0.07 mg F/kg body weight) and therefore may put infants at risk of developing dental fluorosis.”

Marshal reported in 2002: “Infant beverages, particularly infant formulas prepared with fluoridated water, can increase the risk of fluorosis in primary teeth.”

Brothwell in 2003: “Breastfeeding for > 6 months may protect children from developing fluorosis in the permanent incisors.”

Public Health Dentist Mascarenhas reported in 2000 that parents should avoid fluoridated water for infant formula preparation to prevent fluorosis.”

Fluoride needs to be put back into doctors’ offices where it can be prescribed based on age, weight, health and need.  Lobbied legislators should never be allowed to prescribe fluoride to babies without informing their parents that fluoride overdose may ruin their babies’ teeth.

Texas #oilfield service controls technician strikes gold with the new “Omnishelf”, @theomnishelf


Texas #oilfield service controls technician strikes gold with the new “Omnishelf”, @theomnishelf

Point Roberts WA, Delta BC June 24, 2019 – (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source and leading investor resource covering oil and gas and technology releases an interview with Bobby Martin a Texas oilfield service controls technician and founder of Omnishelf.

The OmniShelf is the world’s first-ever portable workstation and briefcase. It attaches to any surface – truck door, telephone pole, HVAC equipment, wall and more – with industrial strength suction cups or magnets. When you’re done, simply close up and transport your tools and office materials from jobsite to jobsite.  


Interview:

“I started putting together a list. The more I thought about the different industries that would need a product like this just drove me crazy. The possibilities are endless. It's basically a workbench where you need it. Whether it’s for tools, a laptop or whatever you need it for, it's a workbench to have by your side…”

From Oil Field Service Technician to business owner, Bobby Martin found a unique solution to a common problem for field workers, salespeople and construction foreman alike. The Omnishelf is the first mutli-use Portable workstation/Briefcase that sets up with ease no matter where the job takes you.

It was a long process from initially recognizing the problem so many people were having to the finished product The Omnishelf is today. But it was a simple spark Bobby received to conceive such an inspired solution. Setting up day to day at different rigs, all with varying work space accommodations, Bobby dreamt up an all-in-one workspace solution to take with him on the road.  

“I made a prototype out of wood and it got a lot of attention. Everytime I would use it someone would stop and ask me what it was and where they could get it. I told them I was in the process of making a plastic one and the more attention it received the more it just drove me to get it done. I knew there was a huge market for it especially in the oilfield alone.”

What makes the Omnishelf unique is its unparalleled ability to adapt to its surroundings, an idea even it’s design and branding conveys. Bobby pointed out that the hexagone is the strongest structure in nature and with that in mind the pieces started to fall into place.
The image of the hexagon is reused and repurposed throughout the whole design including the “O” in Omnishelf. Matching the diagonal lines of the hexagon an adjustable “Y” shape guides a series of heavy duty magnets allowing it to fit wherever it needs to be set up.

“We had to make it so the magnets could be adjustable, where we could stick it not only to a wall but perhaps to a narrow column or light pole. So we came up with a "Y" pattern and that's where you see the big "Y" pattern on the outside. You can move the magnets closer together and line it up with the bottom. You can put it on a narrow column, or a pole.”

One of the main concerns while conceptualizing the Omnishelf was the use of magnets along side computers. If one of the main functions of the case is to hold and prop up a computer then the magnets had to be strong enough to hold to its respective surface. However the concern of damage to the computer itself or even the hard drive was an area of focus. Bobby goes on to explain how they were able to get around this concerning issue.

“What I ended up doing was using three ceramic magnets, but they have steel on the inside so it makes the magnetism one directional. I ended up using stainless steel hardware . If you use normal metal screws they would become magnetized on the inside of the shelf. We made the onmishelf thick enough where you can close laptops and tools up inside of it.”

Already receiving attention from coworkers and friends alike, the Omnishelf had to be tested to see if it could pass muster in the public market. Being warmly received by Walmart.com, Homedepot.com and Siemens Industry there is no doubt there is a market for a product like the Omnishelf. However the life of an entrepreneur isn’t necessarily an easy one.

“ I would like to be in every Home Depot there is. We are also in talks with several other distributors and retailers that have interest so we are waiting for that. I work one hundred hours a week, three weeks on the road and two weeks off. So I am hoping that something hits well enough so we can do this full time.”

Action-packed Sherlock Holmes novel finally reveals the truth behind the sinking of the Titanic


London – 14th June 2019 – The novel, ‘Sherlock Holmes and the great Titanic mystery,’ was published today on Amazon. The author, Valentine Palmer, is a leading authority on the loss of the Titanic, as his great uncle, Charles Herbert Lightoller, was the only senior officer to survive the sinking.

The 14th June 2019 is the 108th anniversary of the maiden voyage of Titanic’s sister ship, RMS Olympic. This date was chosen for the launch of this gripping novel in which Sherlock Holmes reveals the role played by Olympic in the hitherto unacknowledged secret of Titanic’s tragic loss.

"I wanted to involve Sherlock in a real crime that took place at a real time. I also wanted to present a fast-paced action-filled tale for 21st-century readers. Think, Sherlock Holmes meets Jason Bourne!", says author, Valentine Palmer.

‘Sherlock Holmes and the great Titanic mystery,’ takes the reader on a white-knuckle ride from New York to Paris and from Northern Ireland to the banks of the river Reine. The great detective then comes face to face with his arch enemy, Professor Moriarty, on board a ‘ghost ship’ that holds the secret to the Titanic’s last moments. Finally, it is on his own doorstep at 221b Baker Street, that Sherlock Holmes is shot and almost killed, but recovers sufficiently to discover what really happened to the Titanic, a truth too terrible to ever reveal.

The novel is available through Amazon in both paperback and Kindle form:

About the author:
Valentine Palmer recalled his great uncle, second officer Lightoller, in his 2012 book, commissioned to celebrate 100 years since the Titanic’s loss. In his extensive research for his book, Palmer unearthed what, for him, appeared to be conclusive evidence of a giant maritime fraud.  His media appearances to speak of this, plus his various talks to interested groups, always lead to a wide division of opinion. A TV actor in almost 100 famous series, including Dr Who, he has also been a screenwriter and Hollywood script man.

Arthur Bretnik played by Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Sully, Bleed For This) is a mentally unstable conspiracy theorist and private eye with a traumatic past. After
being hired to investigate a possible murder cover-up in the small town of Wander, Arthur is plunged into a world of lies and deceit, as he quickly suspects the murder may be part of the same 'conspiracy cover-up' that caused the death of his daughter. Increasingly paranoid, Arthur's sanity is tested as he attempts to filter fact from fiction and solve the case, all the while questioning if he is a pawn in a much bigger game.

MALEVOLENCE:
·        Currently in pre-production in Rome, Italy
·        Written by Chee Keong Cheung and Oliver Morran with Dolph Lundgren directing
Brandon Jones (Dolph Lundgren) is an undefeated underground fighter of exceptional talent who doesn't know how to lose - but he is ordered to do just that for a crucial high stakes fight. Failing to follow through on this command, a merciless punishment is exacted, resulting in the brutal murder of his wife and daughter and Brandon himself is left brain damaged, a shadow of the man he once was. With the help of his best friend and trainer, Dutch, Brandon must rebuild himself mentally and physically to take revenge on those that tore his family apart and left him for dead. In his way stand a cartel of cold-blooded fighters, a corrupt police force headed by Detective Cain (Scott Adkins), and the limitless resources of mob boss Vincent, a ruthless and twisted individual, who holds sway over the city. As Brandon exacts his revenge, leaving a trail of devastation and destruction in his wake, he comes to realize that all is not what it seems, and what he once feared lost may prove to be his salvation.

constant surveillance, a down on his luck "Reality Writer" becomes fascinated with a
violent new game.
