America UNDER THE INFLUENCE!
I Want To Scare The Hell Out Of You.
Fact: All life on this planet is made up of chemicals.
Fact: Some are natural, but, man made, rearranged, chemicals are unnatural, no matter how many natural ingredients are used.
Fact: Chemical influence and can change our DNA and Genes and brain function.
Man-made chemicals have already wreaked havoc on the human genome, body and brain. Most man-made chemicals are invented to improve something for immediate benefit. Seldom is a new chemical seriously tested for long term consequences. So many toxic substances have been introduced into our natural environment, that the world we live in is a toxic soup of air pollutants, contaminated drinking water and toxic waste.
But, humans continue to contribute, convenient and profitable, products that are only later found to cause harm in humans. The list of examples is too long to put in this article. Acknowledgment of the harm is very slow and many humans will have already suffered medical consequences before any preventative action is taken. Because America is a consumer nation, that buys before it thinks, manufacturers discourage consumer scrutiny before making their purchases. Companies must profit before they are held accountable.
The United States of America has known about the consequences of many toxic chemical agents, for decades. But their impact on future generations, of babies born exposed to these chemicals, was of little concern … in the name of “National Security”.
The US Government even conducted human tests, of their own, during the Cold War. The American Citizen resulting from all this chemical exposure has become a less than perfect example of the idealistic and noble image America advertises to the world.
America walks, talks, drives, tries to think and votes UNDER THE INFLUENCE! Today’s American Government is the end result of toxic chemical exposure on humans.
Whatever marketing goals drove this deliberate deterioration of humanity, the result is a deliberately manufactured Armageddon.
It has to be deliberate. Companies, scientists and governments downplay their knowledge about the long term consequences of chemical exposures, from every substance America ingests, breathes or touches. Why would they do that? Who do you think actually benefits from a mentally diluted population? Could it be those who want unquestioning devotion from whole groups of people?
Enough conspiracy thinking … I believe it is pure greed and power. Money gained from sales throws accountability and responsibility out the window. I would certainly prefer this condition to be pure negligence, instead of deliberate. Creating impaired humans is not responsible … there is no ethics or common good associated with this behavior. Long term consequences must mean something important … to someone. Someone knows, because they want you to extend your genitals, prolong your sex life, cure your depression, reduce your pain or allergies, help your bladder and colon, smooth out your wrinkles, help you sleep and give you that extra boost when you are tired. All the normal conditions known to humans can be cured with a pill, injection or cream. All this emphasis on diverting normal human conditions may be the distractions needed to take attention away from something else. Ooops, no conspiracy here. And, that is just for the legal chemicals.
Our Children On Drugs
Not only are babies being born daily with diminished chances of survival, but, the marketing of both legal and illegal drugs (usually for sexual and recreational purposes) makes the resulting survivor a very troubled human, that may live to become an adult. Troubled adults cost a lot of money, for families and governments. They are medical and criminal liabilities to America. Politicians and clergy love them. These troubled adults are easily influenced by whoever gets to what is left of their brain first. The clergy sees a new member of their flock. The politician sees an easily convinced voter. Manufacturers see dollar signs.
We are populating America with more and more pre-addicted citizens, who have a slim chance of becoming productive civic minded contributors to society
Legal and illegal substances go together with addiction to certain foods. Food is a chemical, too. The introduction of modern chemicals into our food products make it too easy to take advantage of populations already addicted to something else. Do we have an obesity epidemic? What else have Americans become addicted to? Every unnatural chemical Americans are exposed to evolve into a medical or social problem. Who watches these events? Who gives authority for enforcement of consumer protection laws and regulations? Are Republicans endorsing regulations? Are Democrats waging a serious war against irresponsible behavior? Where do these lawmakers come from? Wow, maybe it is the American voter … most of whom are very medicated.
Population and consumption key to future, report says – Over-consumption in rich countries and rapid population growth in the poorest both need to be tackled to put society on a sustainable path, a report says.
From Zygotes to Prenatal to New Born to Infant to Toddler to Child to Adolescent to Adult to Mature and Elderly Adult, each of these natural stages of development carry the consequences of chemical influence during and after pregnancy.
The DOJ 2011 report outlines the Consequences of America on Drugs.
Virtually all illegal drugs, such as heroin and cocaine, pose dangers to a pregnant woman. Legal substances, such as alcohol and tobacco, are also dangerous, and even medical drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, can be harmful. Processed additives, sugars, starches and cholesterol bearing ingredients are also chemicals. More evidence is reported daily about toxins that contaminate the air, water, and the food consumed by humans and the meat they eat.
The California Heroin Treatment Center also has links to treatment resources in every state.
America not only uses a myriad of unnatural chemicals … they mix them on purpose or by accident. The math permutations cannot be calculated for the new chemical cocktails being created every day. These chemical mysteries end up in our water, the ground we grow our food and the animals we raise to eat.
The operative word is REPORTABLE!
Smoking marijuana increases the levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the blood, which reduces the oxygen supply to the baby. Smoking marijuana during pregnancy can increase the chance of miscarriage, low birth weight, premature births, developmental delays, and behavioral and learning problems.
… during the early months of pregnancy cocaine exposure may increase the risk of miscarriage. Later in pregnancy, cocaine use can cause placental abruption. Placental abruption can lead to severe bleeding, preterm birth, and fetal death. OTIS also states that the risk of birth defects appears to be greater when the mother has used cocaine frequently during pregnancy. According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecology (ACOG), women who use cocaine during their pregnancy have a 25 % increased chance of premature labor. Babies born to mothers who use cocaine throughout their pregnancy may also have a smaller head and be growth restricted. Babies who are exposed to cocaine later in pregnancy may be born dependent and suffer from withdrawal symptoms such as tremors, sleeplessness, muscle spasms, and feeding difficulties. Some experts believe that learning difficulties may result as the child gets older. Defects of the genitals, kidneys, and brain are also possible.
Using heroin during pregnancy increases the chance of premature birth, low birth weight, breathing difficulties, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), bleeding within the brain (intracranial hemorrhage), and infant death. Babies can also be born addicted to heroin and can suffer from withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, convulsions, diarrhea, fever, sleep abnormalities, and joint stiffness. Mothers who inject narcotics are more susceptible to HIV, which can be passed to their unborn children.
PCP use during pregnancy can lead to low birth weight, poor muscle control, brain damage, and withdrawal syndrome if used frequently. Withdrawal symptoms include lethargy, alternating with tremors. LSD can lead to birth defects if used frequently.
Taking methamphetamine during pregnancy can result in problems similar to those seen with the use of cocaine in pregnancy. The use of speed can cause the baby to get less oxygen, which can lead to low birth weight. Methamphetamine can also increase the likelihood of premature labor, miscarriage, and placental abruption. Babies can be born addicted to methamphetamine and suffer withdrawal symptoms that include tremors, sleeplessness, muscle spasms, and feeding difficulties. Some experts believe that learning difficulties may result as the child gets older.
More W.Va. Babies Are Born Addicted, Children of Mothers Using OxyContin, Meth, Methadone Are Born in Withdrawal
… going through opiate withdrawal in a hospital – had to start taking methadone, a drug best known for treating heroin addiction, to ease the suffering. Infants like this may cry excessively and have stiff limbs, tremors, diarrhea and other problems that make their first days of life excruciating. Many have to stay in the hospital for weeks while they are weaned off the drugs, taxing neonatal units and driving the cost of their medical care into the tens of thousands of dollars.
Like the cocaine-exposed babies of the 1980s, those born dependent on prescription opiates — narcotics that contain opium or its derivatives — are entering a world in which little is known about the long-term effects on their development. Few doctors are even willing to treat pregnant opiate addicts, and there is no universally accepted standard of care for their babies, partly because of the difficulty of conducting research on pregnant women and newborns.
‘How Little We Know’
Rigorous studies on treating infant withdrawal are scarce, and the American Academy of Pediatrics has not published guidelines since 1998.
“It’s really remarkable how little we know about the effect of prescription drugs and even nonprescription drugs on the fetus,” said Dr. Nora D. Volkow, director of the National Institute for Drug Abuse. “There are real roadblocks in terms of helping us advance the field.”
Even less is known about longer-term effects on babies exposed to painkillers, though in a second leg of their study, Dr. Jones and her fellow researchers plan to follow the 131 babies in the cohort until they turn 3.
Treating drug-dependent mothers and babies is often lonely work, with little communication among the doctors who take it on. The fact that most hospitals will not deliver the babies makes doctors even less likely to treat the women.
“It’s mostly ignorance,” Dr. Publicker said. “It’s a concern that it’s a risky proposition and that they’re going to wind up with an ill baby.”
An increasing number of infants are born with drug and alcohol addiction and withdrawal symptoms, according to a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Treatment for babies in withdrawal might cause more addiction problems. Here are details about fetal addiction and postpartum withdrawal.
* According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 4.4 percent of pregnant women ages 15 to 44 were using illicit drugs. Pregnant girls ages 15 to 17 had the highest drug usage (16.4 percent) and 7.4 percent of pregnant women ages 18 to 25 used illicit drugs. 10.8 percent of pregnant women ages 15 to 44 reported they regularly used alcohol.
* The Pediatrics study looked at different drugs delivered to babies in utero. Of the illicit drugs used, marijuana was found to be the most common. Prescription drugs, particularly opoid pain relievers, were another common form of drug abuse.
* According to Health Day, the Pediatrics study found that in some neonatal wards, as many as 25 percent of babies were being treated for withdrawal symptoms from inter-uterine drug exposure. Hospitals used newborn first stool and urine samples to look for the presence drugs or alcohol.
* Infants born to mothers who used alcohol or barbiturates showed various health issues such as irritability, shrill crying, vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, poor sucking, tremors, seizures, restlessness, sleep issues, hypothermia and breathing problems.
* The study looked at infants born to mothers who used caffeine; these babies were shaky, had breathing and heart problems and vomited. Babies whose mothers used selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressants had similar withdrawal symptoms along with difficulty feeding and hypoglycemia.
* Infants whose mothers used marijuana during pregnancy did not show withdrawal symptoms, but maternal usage might affect the child’s brain and behavioral development.
* Some effects of drug use don’t show up immediately, but withdrawal symptoms might last as long as nine months. Alcohol addiction withdrawal might last 18 months.
All the medical industry can really do is start inventing new syndromes to identify the different combination of symptoms associated with chemical exposures to fetuses and children in general. How many of these babies end up in Foster Care because their addicted parent(s) cannot cope with their products. Foster Care is already over burdened with unwanted children.
Current Through May 2009: Abuse of drugs or alcohol by parents and other caregivers can have negative effects on the health, safety, and well-being of children. Approximately 47 States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and the U.S Virgin Islands have laws within their child protection statutes that address the issue of substance abuse by parents. Two areas of concern are the harm caused by prenatal drug exposure and the harm caused to children of any age by exposure to illegal drug activity in their homes or environment. To see how your State addresses this issue, visit the State Statutes Search.
Doctors concerned about babies born addicted to drugs given to moms to overcome addiction – And, when it gets too stressful for an addicted mother or family to care for their addicted infant … most times the infant ends up in Foster Care.
Foster children have grim prospects – The prospects for kids who age out of foster care are grim.
Effects of Alcohol and Drugs During Pregnancy – The use of drugs and/or alcohol during pregnancy is a serious problem with dangerous consequences.. The American Counsel for Drug Education explains that drug use while pregnant is doubly dangerous. Not only will drugs harm a woman’s health and interfere with her ability to support the pregnancy, they harm the developing fetus.
Chapter 3 – How Parental Substance Use Disorders Affect Children
- The impact of substance use on prenatal development
- The impact of substance use on childhood development
WIKI: … a majority of state inmates (53 percent) and almost half of federal inmates (45 percent) had used drugs in the year before their admission to prison.
WIKI: Substance abuse is prevalent with an estimated 50 million users of hard drugs such as cocaine, heroin and other synthetic drugs … Substance abuse/drug abuse is not limited to mood-altering or psycho-active drugs. Activity is also considered substance abuse when inappropriately used (as in steroids for performance enhancement in sports). Therefore, mood-altering and psychoactive substances are not the only drugs of abuse. Substance abuse often includes problems with impulse control and impulsivity.
When a human alters their mood and impulse, their common sense is impaired. Committing a crime to get more drugs is a no brainer. Committing a sex crime to satisfy an increased libido is a no brainer. Committing a crime becomes personally natural, because more civilized options are cloaked by drugs. Introducing drug impaired people into any population leads to physical, social, psychological harm and changes the political course of a nation. How many of these impaired people surround you in law enforcement, military, your neighbor, your politician, your doctor? Are you reading this article after medicating yourself?
While there is no fast solution to this deadly situation, awareness and education is helpful. It all depends on finding out who cares enough about this issue enough to do something about it. Although this is a global problem, America has lost it’s edge, because irresponsible behavior and profiteering takes priority over common sense and humanity. If any effort is made to clean up the man made mess, America will expect to go through very painful withdrawals, because they have become convinced that certain chemical substances make their life easier, more productive, more sexually active, more successful and happier.
Does your elected leader work to change the system that allows irresponsible toxins to change your life for the worse? Have you asked? Maybe you should. Research and find out how your local water and soil is effected by contaminants and what is being done to keep you safe. Ask your doctor or pusher about the long term effects of the chemical they want you to use.
