The brain is not the only organ of the body negatively affected by various exogenous toxins in our environment.” – NTEF

From the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke a division of the National Institutes of Health:”Encephalopathy is a term for any diffuse disease of the brain that alters brain function or structure. Encephalopathy may be caused by infectious agent (bacteria, virus, or prion), metabolic or mitochondrial dysfunction, brain tumor or increased pressure in the skull, prolonged exposure to toxic elements (including solvents, drugs, radiation, paints, industrial chemicals, and certain metals), chronic progressive trauma, poor nutrition, or lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain.”

Chemical Injury, ADD/ADHD, Lyme, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Gulf War Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, all have some degree of interaction upon the brain.

A report just released by the Washington, DC-based National Institute for Science, Law & Public Policy is showing that the smart meters and grid:  “Dr. Schoechle, who has been engaged in development of electric utility meters, home automation systems, gateways, and energy management systems for over 25 years, and who sits on several international standards setting committees related to the smart grid, calls the smart meter being rolled out across the U.S. “a canard—a story or hoax based on specious claims about energy benefits…” .  Full report can be read here.

What is Neuro-toxicity?  

From the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke a division of the National Institutes of Health:

“Neurotoxicity occurs when the exposure to natural or manmade toxic substances (neurotoxicants) alters the normal activity of the nervous system. This can eventually disrupt or even kill neurons, key cells that transmit and process signals in the brain and other parts of the nervous system.

Neurotoxicity can result from exposure to substances used in chemotherapy, radiation treatment, drug therapies, and organ transplants, as well as exposure to heavy metals such as lead and mercury, certain foods and food additives, pesticides, industrial and/or cleaning solvents, cosmetics, and some naturally occurring substances. Symptoms may appear immediately after exposure or be delayed. They may include limb weakness or numbness; loss of memory, vision, and/or intellect; headache; cognitive and behavioral problems; and sexual dysfunction. Individuals with certain disorders may be especially vulnerable to neurotoxicants.”
