UK Against Fluoridation

Our children are contaminated with chemicals!

Hundreds of scientists, doctors, parents and activists worldwide have voiced and expressed their fears and sounded the warning sirens. Unfortunately, their calls have also fallen on deaf ears.......
image21.jpgDue to their smaller bodies and undeveloped systems, infants and children are at a much higher risk than adults to becoming contaminated by toxic material. They are daily exposed to thousands of synthetic chemicals in their environments; some we know of and others we don’t. Everyday, new untested chemicals are added to baby and adult foods as additives (coloring, taste enhancers, stabilizers, preservatives, emulsifiers, artificial sweeteners, flavors). Other dangerous toxins are included in the manufacturing of kitchenware (coating of pots and pans), plastic water bottles and other house-ware products. They are also found in personal care products (shampoos, lotions), fabrics of children’s wear (flame-retardants), cleaning agents, paints, glues, toys, furnishing, textile, carpets, pesticides and more.
According Dr. Landrigan, such harmful “chemicals have never been tested for toxicity” on children or adults. Moreover, the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate them. Of course, the Saudi FDA does not have an independent view from American FDA.
Dr. Landrigan explains that for their weights and smaller bodies, children drink “more water, eat more food, and breathe more than adults,” making them more exposed to contaminated water (heavy metals, fluoride), food additives (colorings, flavors), artificial sweeteners, toxic chemicals, plastics, environmental pollutants, fumes, car exhaust, heavy metals and industrial waste. Moreover, children’s body are not well equipped to detoxify from such poisonous substances. Infants, in particular, have systems that are not mature enough to filter out toxins, making them more susceptible to all kinds of toxicity.
Next week, InshaAllah, I will continue discussing the effects of chemicals on human health and especially on foetuses, infants, children and adolescents. It is our duty as parents and caregivers to do our best to make sure our children are kept healthy and safe by protecting their health and wellbeing in order to see them become healthy, productive and constructive adults as well as protect the continuity of the human species in at least the way it was passed over to us.
