Russell Brand in a video on his YouTube channel expressed his shock and disbelief in response to an investigation that found certain commercial baby foods are contaminated with dangerously high levels of arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium — all of which are linked to serious, lifelong health effects.
“Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate Is Destroying Our Health and the Environment,” written by Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., senior research scientist at MIT, explains how and why glyphosate poses an existential threat to humanity, and why it’s so important to avoid it if you care about your health and the health of your family.
“Forever chemicals,” widely used in everyday consumer products, are linked to cancer, brain damage, thyroid disease, low birth weights, obesity, infertility, hormone suppression and other health issues.
More than 54% of American children are suffering from one or more chronic illnesses, with the late 1980s and early 1990s viewed as the gateway period that launched the decline. Autism, ADHD, asthma and allergies have doubled since that time, with autism now one in 34 children in some regions. Pediatric autoimmune conditions are also […]
Professor Christopher Exley is a firm believer that science is only useful when it is properly communicated. Scientific papers are difficult vehicles for the wider communication of science and thus he has always endeavored to tell the story of his scientific research as widely as possible through myriad blogs, presentations, and interviews.
Watch RFK, Jr., Rev. Tony Muhammad, Kevin Jenkins of the Urban Global Alliance, author/historian Curtis Cost and activist Sheila Ealey during a live discussion of Children’s Health Defense’s new documentary, “Medical Racism.”
An analysis by DeSmog revealed 65% of directors from 39 big banks had connections to the world’s most polluting energy sources.
Groundbreaking Investigation Finds Alarming Levels of Arsenic, Lead and Toxic Chemicals in U.S. Tap Water
A joint investigation by the Guardian and Consumer Reports found drinking water samples from systems servicing more than 19 million people in the U.S. contained unsafe levels of multiple contaminants.
In her new book, “Countdown,” environmental and reproductive epidemiologist Shanna Swan predicts sperm counts could reach zero by 2045 thanks to hormone-disrupting chemicals that are “everywhere.”
Studies estimate worldwide humans are using 129 billion face masks each month. Most masks are disposable, made from plastic microfibers that are not biodegradable and may fragment into smaller plastic particles polluting ecosystems.
COVID vaccine makers have not only introduced new primary ingredients to the U.S. vaccine stage, but they’ve bundled these new ingredients with “inactive” ingredients in unprecedented ways that raise the risk for dangerous allergic reactions.
The authors of a new peer-reviewed article linking phthalates to long-lasting neurodevelopmental harm in fetuses, infants and children want the chemicals, found in toys, floor coverings and hundreds of other products, banned.
In the Northern Great Plains, a Search for Ways to Protect Drinking Water From Fossil Fuel Industry Pollution
North Dakota’s water supplies are at risk from contaminants from fracking wastewater, but residents are fighting back.
In a video produced by Children’s Health Defense, Dr. Mumper reviews the scientific community’s numerous concerns about the safety of a COVID vaccine and its ingredients, and provides information about each of the top COVID vaccine candidates.
Plastics are everywhere: in couches, televisions, makeup, toys, costumes, and even children’s bodies, new report shows.
Heavy metals from coal power plant wastewater cause cancer, reproductive impacts and lowered IQ among children, and threaten endangered species.
Our children are sick 54% of American children are chronically ill. 1 in 2 teens have a mental health disorder 1 in 5 children are obese 1 in 5 teens have a severe mental disorder 1 in 6 children have a developmental disability 1 in 11 children have ADHD 1 in 12 children have asthma […]
A new report in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health — “Sources and Toxicity of Mercury in the San Francisco Bay Area, Spanning California and Beyond” — evaluates published scientific literature on the environmental occurrence and biomagnification of mercury with an emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area in California.
If I understand the history of case law, vaccines, in legal terms, are medicine. Intentional heavy metal poisoning is not medicine. Injectible surveillance components are not medicine. Injectible credit cards are not medicine. An injectible brain-machine interface is not a medicine. Legal and financial immunity for insurance companies does not create human immunity from disease. Why are we calling these formulations “vaccines”?
Do conflicts of interest between academic research institutions and the pharmaceutical industry hamper the ability to conduct genuine scientific inquiry into topics deemed off-limits by vaccine makers.
CHD’s Vice Chair and General Counsel Mary Holland recently joined The Solari Report’s C. Austin Fitts to do a special report to discuss vaccine and related mandates and what we need to do to prevent them.
While acknowledging that genetics likely play a role, few dispute that environmental factors such as lead and other heavy metals, fluoride, pesticides and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals have a lot to do with the consistent upward trend of ADHD diagnoses.
Dynamical properties of elemental metabolism distinguish attention deficit hyperactivity disorder from autism spectrum disorder
Metabolism of metals and toxins may play a role in ADHD and autism development, evidence may be detectable.

Lead is a dense toxic heavy metal found in pipes, batteries, coal ash, paint products, and gasoline. Its neurotoxicity was recognized in the late 19th century, as it accumulates in soft tissues and bones in humans, damaging the nervous system and interfering with enzyme function. Even though lead was supposed to fazed out, it is still found in the air, soil, and water, and traces of lead continue to be found in industrial and construction products. Populations are still affected by environmental exposure. Lead is especially toxic to children, as evidenced in the following studies and articles below, contributing to gastrointestinal problems, psychological issues, acute encephalopathy, and lower IQ, as well as contributing to neurological disorders such as autism, ADHD, and behavioral problems.
Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the Earth’s crust – a chemical element now recognized as a neurotoxin, especially when the human body reaches its burden, though, according to one of the foremost experts on aluminum, Bioinorganic Chemistry professor Dr. Christopher Exley, said in the Environmental Science Processes & Impacts Journal that, […]
