July 25, 2012 — For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain.

Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children

Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted. The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012. * This sentence was updated on September 5, 2012. Read a September 2012 statement by the authors.

Spirit Science ~ Water. Water… What is it?

Spirit Science ~ Water

We all interact with water, we’re all made of water, and yet in science today we don’t even really understand what it is. There are many unanswered questions about water and what it is that we really don’t have conclusive answers too. This is actually a wonderful thing, because admitting we know nothing about something gives us an opportunity to find something out. Simply by looking at water you can see there’s something magic about. It’s the source of all of life on earth. We can learn a lot about where bio-organic life came from by looking at water. A lot of this information is present today because a scientist – Dr. His work opened the floodgates towards discovering what water actually is everywhere. In lesson 1, we talked about Emoto’s research into what Water is, and many skeptics cried out that there were triple blind studies done with the same experiment, and it yielded results that didn’t quite add up to Emoto’s work.

Water supply and sanitation in Lebanon

Water supply and sanitation in Lebanon is characterized by a number of achievements and challenges. The achievements include the reconstruction of infrastructure after the 1975–90 Civil War and the 2006 war with Israel, as well as the reform of the water and sanitation sector through a water law passed in 2000. The law created four Regional Water Establishments to consolidate numerous smaller utilities. The Lebanese water and sanitation sector has received and continues to receive substantial foreign aid in the form of grants and soft loans from a dozen Western and Arab donors. Access[edit] The UN statistics show no data on access to sanitation in Lebanon.[1] The World Bank quotes estimates by the Council for Development and Reconstruction showing a 58% share of connection to sewers in 2002. Service quality[edit] The quality of water service provision is poor.
