    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 4.9 million women of childbearing age in the U.S. — that’s 8 percent — have mercury levels in their blood that are unsafe. Exposure to unsafe levels of mercury can cause damage to a child’s brain, delaying walking and talking, and even lowering a child’s intelligence. The biggest source of mercury pollution in the U.S. is emissions from power plants.

    Will you join me in helping prevent mercury pollution? The EPA is now accepting public comments on mercury controls, at:

    [url:ppw4p85c]http://www.moveon.org/mercury/[/url:ppw4p85c]

    The EPA is trying to back away from strict safeguards against mercury pollution from power plants, despite the advice of its own experts and advisory panels. In December, the EPA announced a mercury plan that will expose our children to far more mercury, for far longer, than what the agency has said is achievable and cost-effective.

    This should trouble all of us. The EPA’s job should be to protect kids and the rest of us from dangerous pollution.

    Please join me in speaking up on this. You can send the EPA your comments here:

    Thanks.

    [b:ppw4p85c]This call for fighting heavy metal poisoning has a curious religious angle. Those who fight against God’s revealed nature and will have a notorious habit of tinkering with toxic heavy metals. The alchemists of old, the forerunners of the atheists of the Enlightenment, were up to their pointed caps in mercury and lead.

    Daniel showed the Babylonian cultural decline from godliness as a continuum from Gold to silver, to brass, and culminating in iron. You can eat gold and silver, but iron, as we know from iron cookware, can leave irritating deposits and aggravate “iron loading” associated with cancer.

    Our God calls for us to be refined as gold and silver, not brain damaged and insane from heavy metal poisoning. This is more than a metaphor in this instance. I hope your sense of good stewardship will move you to respond. [/b:ppw4p85c]

    Wouldn’t mercury in anyone cause harm? What difference does it make if it’s in child-bearing women?

    I moved this topic to another forum because I felt it was more appropriate there.

    From what I know, yes, mercury in anyone would cause harm. But it’s a double whammy if there are significant levels of mercury in women who are now pregnant or one day will bear children.

    Just as using tobacco would be harmful to everyone, it is even worse for childbearing women since the unborn child will be developing within that chemical filled environment. What is a small level of toxin for a grown adult would be much more toxic, even deadly to a child, even more deadly to an infant, and yet even more so to an unborn child.

    So, as I said, from what I know we should prevent everyone from getting toxic metals in their blood streams, but that is a big task. So to start somewhere, we try to stop the metals from spreading down into a new generation.

    Speaking of toxic stuff how about this article: http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/040303/law052_1.html

    I can’t believe that some chemicals that are put in processed meats are directly related to cancer and they are still allowed to be used. It kind of makes me sick and more aware that I should watch my health and eating habits a little more. :shock:

    Yes, I read that article and it is scary. :shock:

    I would like to try to eat fewer processed foods. I am not a health-nut as most would call it, but I do like to have control over what I put into my body.

    Sometimes I wonder if we had all continued eating our unflavored baby foods even beyond our infancy, and did not ever taste the processed, salted, sugared, fryed foods of the older generations, would we be a healthier society? Of course we could begin to eat those foods in a solid form…

    God gave me my phyisical body and it is a temple for him, so want to take care of it because it is my responsibility to do so and work to towards having a healthy life.

    To me, taking care myself so that I can remain a temple not only means for me to not get tattoos, multiple piercings, smoke and/or do drugs, but it also means getting enough sleep, eating right, and exercising–the basics.

    It is kind of disturbing how many people will put more energy in the upkeep of their vehicles or homes than they put into the caring for themselves and their own health.

    I thought the baby foods had different flavors. <img src=:” title=”Question” />

    Now, see, it’s not the food’s problem that we have health problems, but our own lack of control over what we eat. Many people like to indulge.

    Personally, based on that article, I wish there were different, more healthy ways that we could accomplish whatever those cancerous chemicals do for our food. I also wonder why the US government even allows those things to be put in food.

    Yes, I agree with you, but I seem to be having a bit of trouble with that exercising thing. There are only certain kinds of exercising that interest me, others just seem boring. I am trying to cut back on certain kinds of foods I eat though. <img src=” title=”Smile” />

    Yes it does, but what I meant was that there are no added sugars or salts in baby foods; most have the foods natural flavors.

    I thought baby food was breast milk? I am not sure if it comes in different flavors but I am sure that if it becomes solid you probably should not be feeding it to a baby.

    As an interesting fact, a woman can continue breastfeeding her child for years. So long as the feeding continues, the milk continues to flow. Also, breastfeeding is a natural birth control. So long as the milk flows, her hormones make her body inconducive to ovulation. (I read too much about breastfeeding.)

    I’m pretty sure she meant the canned Gerber foods <img src=” title=”Wink” />
