Fluoride Exposure Correlated To Lower IQ

Researchers in Toronto, Canada have published a peer-reviewed study in Environmental Health Perspectives which finds that increased exposure to fluoride in utero is associated with lower IQ in children.

In a study spanning more than a decade, the researchers analyzed 1,576 samples from nearly 300 sets of mothers and children in Mexico where fluoride is not added to public water supplies, and is instead absorbed through naturally occurring concentrations in public water and fluoridated products. The IQ of children included in the study was tested twice up to the age of 12, which revealed a decrease in IQ scores for every .5 milligram-per-liter increase in fluoride exposure beyond 0.8 milligrams per liter of a pregnant mother's urine.

Man commits self immolation outside New Zealand parliament

Some poor dude decided his only course of action in life at this point was to set fire to himself outside parliament today. He is in a critical condition at Wellington hospital.

Perhaps New Zealand needs to think about properly funding a mental health system again. Or maybe $20 a week extra in tax cuts is more preferable. I don't know, our society is so fucking selfish and uncaring these days maybe we should just get used to seeing stuff like this happening moving forward.

Texas Issues First Medical Marijuana License To Help Treat Epilepsy

National MP: I taught Chinese spies

He taught at the PLA University of Foreign Languages in Louyang and is part of the PLA’s third department, which intercepts, collects and monitors the communications of foreign countries.

Yang said his job was to teach students to how to listen, read and write English.

"If you define those cadets or students as spies, yes, then I was teaching spies. If that is the case. I don't think [they were spies]. I just think they are collecting information through communication in China. If you define that way, then they were spies. But for us, it was just collecting information."

Save NZ’s largest study of children and their families

Dear Prime Minister Bill English

We ask that you please restore funding to the Growing Up in New Zealand research study to enable it to continue to track the health and development of all 6,800 New Zealand children in the study.
Why is this important?

The government has recently cut funding to Growing Up in New Zealand. What is this research about, who is it for, and why does it matter?

Based at the University of Auckland, Growing Up in New Zealand (GUiNZ) is the largest and most diverse longitudinal study to ever track the lives of children in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It is the only study to track them from before birth through young adulthood.

This groundbreaking study represents the lives and stories of almost 7000 children and their families, providing unique insight into what shapes children’s early development and how interventions might be targeted at the earliest opportunity to give every New Zealand child the best start in life.

China-born New Zealand MP probed by spy agency

Jian Yang, an MP for New Zealand’s ruling National party, spent more than 10 years training and teaching at elite facilities including China’s top linguistics academy for military intelligence officers, the Financial Times has learnt.

Since being elected in 2011, Mr Yang has been a major fundraiser for the National party. He has consistently pushed for closer ties with Beijing and for international policies and positions echoing those of China’s Communist party.

The fact he has served for six years in the governing party of a member country of the “five eyes” intelligence alliance raises questions about western preparedness to deal with China’s increasingly aggressive efforts to influence foreign governments and spy on them.
