Psychotronics: THE SECRET WAVE THAT AFFECTS YOUR DECISIONS

Please find and use the information as part of your understanding of what artificially shapes the 'playing field' on which you must provide your services and 'goods'.

Recently reacquainting with a colleague and activist with PhD in Biophysics, who while working on satellite technology and technology related to HAARP, and understanding their effects and purposes by its contractors and users, after which she then quickly crossed into activism to ban this technology's use on mankind, having some hard copy of literature she uses in her activism, I decided to check a website
www.globalresearch.ca sited as a source in her literature.

Although not lauding the website as manna from heaven, I found its search engine to yield some valuable information on psychotronics, and information to describe and expose where this technology is used as weapons of sorts against mankind grand scale and for targeted use against individuals to achieve other more counterproductive ends. Curious people for expose on nasa should also see
http://www.nasawatch.info/

One must also understand the application where grand scale effect of psychotronic hardware on mankind can drive investment markets and create pump/dump bubbles, jury tamper, drive an accommodating mind set in Congress where Congress 'feels' and thinks itself compelled to accept political money, accommodate corporate friendly legislation, vote majority for fraudulent war, or even believe propaganda while proponents of any particular cause fail to produce any particularly compelling evidence. When Carl Rove said something to the effect of rousting the christian right in the last election, it was easy to see where using an issue such as 'same sex marriage' and psychotronics on the voters during election time would produce a greater number of agitated people than if the election were void of psychotronic grand scale use on Americas of voting age, and ignorant of the issues and ignorant of what is manipulating their 'drive' to vote for or against any candidate or issue. Worse than drunken sailors on a mission for licentiousness.

At the present time, 100 year old Tesla technology has been perfected and our government is a major purchaser of this technology produced by major military and 'security' contractors such as Lockheed Martin. Catherine Austin Fitts, a former Dillon Read board member and Assistant Secretary of HUD found the "Black OPs" budget while working in Bush1's administration.
http://www.solari.com will give some insight on where and how expenditures for psychotronics occurs and all off the radar screen into the pockets of the military contractors for one could say 'secret state' interests, notwithstanding, I see no productive use for psychotronic weapons on Americans in an open society requiring for its health and longevity, unmolested reasoning, deliberation, and CRITICAL THINKING on the matters of life, society, and clean, open government rather than their invasion into our privacy while on our wallets and at the cost of our Republic, it/they conducts its business with its cronies behind closed-doors and paints it to us as 'national security'.

I've not only included the website, I likewise have included one of the more valuable and informative articles on the website that describes the use and effects of psychotronic weapons. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

On a final note, keep in mind that Littleton, Colorado represents the site of two organizations: Lockheed Martin and Columbine High school. Given this technology can and is used to create a state of mind where young people would feel so possessed as to buy guns and shoot friends, and selves, and knowing that the military contractors such as Lockheed martin manufacture this technology and perhaps contemptuously think they can experiment with this as if with impunity and an invisible hand given the remote nature the technology possesses, one should 'connect-the-dots' on the problems this technology presents to society.

Respectfully,

The Deadly Instruments of the New World Order: Electromagnetic and Informational Weapons - The Remote Manipulation of the Human Brain
by Mojmir Babacek

Editors Note: We bring to our readers this carefully documented review article by Mojmir Babajek. While the text deals with a number of complex scientific processes, the implications of these findings are far-reaching. The arsenal of electromagnetic and informational weapons, used to manipulate the human mind of targeted individuals or populations, is an integral part of the weapons system of the New World Order. The US military possesses a sophisticated arsenal of psychotronic weapons which could be used both domestically and internationally.

Electromagnetic and informational Weapons could be used in conventional wars theatres, without the knowledge of the enemy. It is therefore essential that we not only take cognizance of these findings, but we mobilize nationally and internationally against the use of brain manipulating technologies.

Michel Chossudovsky, 5 August 2004
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In October 2000, Congressman Denis J. Kucinich introduced in the House of Representatives a bill, which would oblige the American president to engage in negotiations aimed at the ban of space based weapons.

In this bill, the definition of a weapons system included:

"any other unacknowledged or as yet undeveloped means inflicting death or injury on, or damaging or destroying, a person (or the biological life, bodily health, mental health, or physical and economic well-being of a person). through the use of land-based, sea- based, or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser, or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood management, or mind control of such persons or populations"(15).

As in all legislative acts quoted in this article, the bill pertains to sound, light or electromagnetic stimulation of the human brain.

Psychotronic weapons belong, at least for a layman uninformed of secret military research, in the sphere of science fiction, since so far none of the published scientific experiments has been presented in a meaningful way to World public opinion.

That it is feasible to manipulate human behavior with the use of subliminal, either by sound or visual messages, is now generally known and acknowledged by the scientific community.

This is why in most countries, the use of such technologies, without the consent of the individual concerned, is in theory banned. Needless to say, the use of these technologies is undertaken covertly, without the knowledge or consent of targeted individuals.

Devices using light for the stimulation of the brain constitute another mechanism whereby light flashing under certain frequencies could be used to manipulate the human psychic(psychie?).

As for the use of sound, a device transmitting a beam of sound waves, which can be heard only by persons at whom the beam of sound waves is targeted, has been reported in several news media. In this case, the beam is formed by a combination of sound and ultrasound waves which causes the targeted person to hear the sound inside his head. Such a procedure could affect the mental balance of the targeted individual as well as convince him that he is, so to speak, mentally ill.

This article examines the development of technologies and knowledge pertaining to the functioning of the human brain and the way new methods of manipulation of the human mind are being developed.

Electromagnetic energy
One of the main methods of manipulation is through electromagnetic energy.

In the declassified scientific literature only some 30 experiments have been published supporting this assumption (1),(2). Already in 1974, in the USSR, after successful testing within a military unit in Novosibirsk, the Radioson (Radiosleep) was registered with the Government Committee on Matters of Inventions and Discoveries of the USSR, described as a method of induction of sleep by means of radio waves (3), (4), (5).

In the scientific literature, technical feasibility of inducing sleep in a human being through the use of radio waves is confirmed in a book by an British scientist involved in research on the biological effects of electromagnetism (6). A report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on nonionizing radiation published in 1991 confirms that:

"many of biological effects observed in animals exposed to ELF fields appear to be associated, either directly or indirectly, with the nervous system." (2).

Among the published experiments, there are those where pulsed microwaves have caused the synchronization of isolated neurons with the frequency of pulsing of microwaves. Ffor example, a neuron firing at a frequency of 0.8 Hz was forced in this way to fire the impulses at a frequency of 1 Hz. Moreover, the pulsed microwaves contributed to changing the concentration of neurotransmitters in the brain (neurotransmitters are a part of the mechanism which causes the firing of neurons in the brain) and reinforcing or attenuating the effects of drugs delivered into the brain (1).

The experiment where the main brain frequencies registered by EEG were synchronized with the frequency of microwave pulsing (1,2) might explain the function of the Russian installation Radioson. Microwaves pulsed in the sleep frequency would cause the synchronization of the brain's activity with the sleep frequency and in this way produce sleep.

Pulsing of microwaves in frequency predominating in the brain at an awakened state could, by the same procedure, deny sleep to a human being.

A report derived from the testing program of the Microwave Research Department at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research states

"Microwave pulses appear to couple to the central nervous system and produce stimulation similar to electric stimulation unrelated to heat".

In a many times replicated experiment, microwaves pulsed in an exact frequency caused the efflux of calcium ions from the nerve cells (1,2). Calcium plays a key role in the firing of neurons and Ross Adey, member of the first scientific team which published this experiment, publicly expressed his conviction that this effect of electromagnetic radiation would interfere with concentration on complex tasks (7).

Robert Becker, who had share in the discovery of the effect of pulsed fields at the healing of broken bones, published the excerpts from the report from Walter Reed Army Institute testing program. In the first part "prompt debilitation effects" should have been tested (8). Were not those effects based on the experiment by Ross Adey and others with calcium efflux?

British scientist John Evans, working in the same field, wrote that both Ross Adey and Robert Becker lost their positions and research grants and called them "free-thinking exiles" (6). In 1975, in the USA, a military experiment was published where pulsed microwaves produced, in the brain of a human subject, an audio perception of numbers from 1 to 10 (9). Again the possibility to convince an individual that it is mentally ill is obvious. The testing program of American Walter Read Army Institute of Research, where the experiment took place, counts with "prompt auditory stimulation by means of auditory effects" and finally aims at "behavior controlled by stimulation" (8).

Let us assume that the words delivered into the brain were transcribed into ultrasound frequencies. Would not then the subject perceive those same words as his own thoughts?

And would this not imply that that his behavior was being controlled in this way through the transmission of ultrasound frequencies? In this regard, the American Air Force 1982 "Final Report On Biotechnology Research Requirements For Aeronautical Systems Through the Year 2000" states:

"While initial attention should be toward degradation of human performance through thermal loading and electromagnetic field effects, subsequent work should address the possibilities of directing and interrogating mental functioning, using externally applied fields." (10).

Several scientists have warned that the latest advances in neurophysiology could be used for the manipulation of the human brain.

In June 1995, Michael Persinger, who worked on the American Navy's project of Non-lethal electromagnetic weapons, published a scientific article where he states:

"the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately six billion brains of the human species without mediation through classical sensory modalities by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed. is now marginally feasible" (11). In 1998, the French National Bioethics Committee warned that "neuroscience is being increasingly recognized as posing a potential threat to human rights" (12). In May 1999 the neuroscientists conference, sponsored by the UN, took place in Tokyo. Its final declaration formally acknowledges that :

"Today we have intellectual, physical and financial resources to master the power of the brain itself, and to develop devices to touch the mind and even control or erase consciousness.We wish to profess our hope that such pursuit of knowledge serves peace and welfare" (13).

On the international political scene, in the last few years, the concept of remote control of the human brain has become a matter of international and intergovernmental negotiation. In January 1999, the European Parliament passed a resolution where it called "for an international convention introducing a global ban on all developments and deployments of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings." (14)

Already in 1997, nine states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) addressed the UN, OBSE and the states of the Interparliamentary Union with the proposal to place at the agenda of the General Assembly of the United Nations, the preparation and adoption of an international convention "On Prevention of Informational Wars and Limitation of Circulation of Informational Weapons" (16), (3).

Informational Weapons
The initiative was originally proposed, in the Russian State Duma, by Vladimir Lopatin (3). V. Lopatin worked, from 1990 to 1995, in sequence, in the standing committees on Security respectively of the Russian Federation, Russian State Duma and of the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), specializing in informational security.(3). The concept of informational weapon or informational war is rather unknown to the world general public. In 1999, V. Lopatin, together with Russian scientist Vladimir Tsygankov, published a book "Psychotronic Weapon and the Security of Russia" (3). There we find the explanation of this terminology:

"In the report on the research of the American Physical Society for the year 1993 the conclusion is presented that psychophysical weapon systems.can be used. for the construction of a strategic arm of a new type (informational weapon in informational war)."

Among many references on this subject, we refer to Materials of the Parliament Hearings "Threats and Challenges in the Sphere of Informational Security", Moscow, July 1996, "Informational Weapon as a Threat to the National Security of the Russian Federation" (analytical report of the Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation), Moscow, 1996 and a material "To Whom Will Belong the Conscientious Weapon in the 21st Century", Moscow, 1997. (17).

In 2000 V. Lopatin introduced, after two other authors, the third in order bill on the subject of "Informational and Psychological Security of the Russian Federation". Lopotin's findings were reviewed by the Russian newspaper Segodnya:

".Means of informational-psychological influence are capable not only of harming the health of an individual, but, also of causing, according to Lopatin, 'the blocking of freedom of will of human being on the subliminal level, the loss of the ability of political, cultural and social self identification, the manipulation of societal consciousness, which could lead to the destruction of a sense of collective identify by the Russian people and nation'" (16).

In the book "Psychotronic Weapons and the Security of Russia", the authors propose among the basic principles of the Russian concept of defense against the remote control of the human psyche not only the acknowledgement of its existence, but also the fact that the methods of informational and psychotronic war are fully operational ("and are being used without a formal declaration of war") (18). They also quote the record from the session of the Russian Federation's Federal Council where V. Lopatin stated that psychotronic weapon can

"cause the blocking of the freedom of will of a human being on a subliminal level" or "instillation into the consciousness or subconsciousness of a human being of information which will trigger a faulty or erroneous perception of reality" (19).

In that regard, they proposed the preparation of national legislation as well as the establishment of legal international norms "aimed at the defense of human psyche against subliminal, destructive and informational manipulations" (20).

Moreover, they also propose the declassification of all analytical studies and research on the various technologies. They warned that, because this research has remained classified and removed from the public eye, it has allowed the arms race to proceed unabated. It has thereby contributed to increasing the possibility of psychotronic war.

Among the possible sources of remote influence on human psyche, the authors list the "generators of physical fields" of "known as well as unknown nature" (21). In 1999 the STOA (Scientific and Technological Options Assessment), part of the Directorate General for Research of the European Parliament published the report on Crowd Control Technologies, ordered by them with the OMEGA foundation in Manchester (UK) (22, http://www.europarl.eu.int/stoa/publi/pdf/99-14-01-a_en.pdf ).

One of four major subjects of the study pertained to the so-called "Second Generation" or "non lethal" technologies: "This report evaluates the second generation of 'non-lethal' weapons which are emerging from national military and nuclear weapons laboratories in the United States as part of the Clinton Administration's 'non-lethal' warfare doctrine now adopted in turn by NATO. These devices include weapons using. directed energy beam,.radio frequency, laser and acoustic mechanisms to incapacitate human targets" (23) The report states that "the most controversial ,non-lethal' crowd control . technology proposed by the U.S., are so called Radio Frequency or Directed Energy Weapons that can allegedly manipulate human behavior. the greatest concern is with systems which can directly interact with the human nervous system" (24). The report also states that "perhaps the most powerful developments remain shrouded in secrecy" (25).

The unavailability of official documents confirming the existence of this technology may be the reason why the OMEGA report is referencing, with
respect to mind control technology, the internet publication of the author of this article (26 http://www.europarl.eu.int/stoa/publi/pdf/99-14-01-a_en.pdf ).

Similarly, the internet publication of the director of the American Human Rights and Anti-mind Control Organization (CAHRA), Cheryl Welsh, is referenced by the joint initiative of the Quaker United Nations Office, United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research, and Programme for Strategic and International Security Studies, with respect to non-lethal weapons (27).

On September 25th, 2000, the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma discussed the addendum to the article 6 of the Federal law On Weapons. In the resolution we read:
"The achievements of contemporary science. allow for creation of measured methods of secret, remote influencing on the psyches and physiology of a person or a group of people" (28). The committee recommended that the addendum be approved. The addendum to the article 6 of the Russian Federation law "On Weapons" was approved on July 26, 2001. It states: "within the territory of the Russian Federation is prohibited the circulation of weapons and other objects. the effects of the operation of which are based on the use of electromagnetic, light, thermal, infra-sonic or ultra-sonic radiations." (29).

In this way, the Russian government made a first step to stand up to its dedication to the ban of mind control technology.

In the Doctrine of Informational Security of the Russian Federation, signed by president Putin in September 2000, among the dangers threatening the informational security of Russian Federation, is listed "the threat to the constitutional rights and freedoms of people and citizens in the sphere of spiritual life. individual, group and societal consciousness" and "illegal use of special means affecting individual, group and societal consciousness" (30). Among the major directions of the international cooperation toward the guaranteeing of the informational security is listed "the ban of production, dissemination and use of 'informational weapon' " (31).

The foregoing statement should be interpreted as the continuing Russian commitment to the international ban of the means of remote influencing of the activity of the human brain.

Similarly, in the above mentioned report, published by the STOA, the originally proposed version of the resolution of the European Parliament calls for: "an international convention for a global ban on all research and development, which seeks to apply knowledge of the chemical, electrical, sound vibration or other functioning of the human brain to the development of weapons which might enable the manipulation of human beings, including a ban of any actual or possible deployment of such systems."(32)

Here the term "actual" might easily mean that such weapons are already deployed.

Among the countries with the most advanced military technologies is the USA which did not present any international initiative demanding the ban of technologies enabling the remote control of human mind. (The original version of the bill by Denis J. Kucinich was changed.)

All the same, according to the study published by STOA, the US is the major promoter of the use of those weapons. Non lethal technology was included into NATO military doctrine due to their effort: "At the initiative of the USA, within the framework of NATO, a special group was formed, for the perspective use of devices of non-lethal effects" states the record from the session of the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma (28).

The report published by STOA states: "In October 1999 NATO announced a new policy on non-lethal weapons and their place in allied arsenals" (33). "In 1996 non-lethal tools identified by the U.S. Army included. directed energy systems" and "radio frequency weapons" (34) - those weapons, as was suggested in the STOA report as well, are being associated with the effects on the human nervous system.

According to the Russian government informational agency FAPSI, in the last 15 years,U.S. expenditures on the development and acquisition of the means of informational war has increased fourfold, and at present they occupy the first place among all military programs (17),(3).

Though there are possible uses of informational war, which do not imply mind control, the US Administration has been unwilling to engage in negotiations on the ban on all forms of manipulation of the human brain. This unwillingness might indeed suggest that the US administration intends to use mind control technologies both within the US as well as internationally as an instrument of warfare.

One clear consequence of the continuation of the apparent politics of secrecy surrounding technologies enabling remote control of the human brain is that the governments, who own such technologies, could use them without having to consult public opinion. Needless to say, any meaningful democracy in today's world could be disrupted, through secret and covert operations. It is not inconceivable that in the future, entire population groups subjected to mind control technologies, could be living in a "fake democracy" where their own government or a foreign power could broadly shape their political opinions by means of mind control technologies.

Soy, the Soydid truth they dont want you to know

Important paper by Dr. Blaylock exposing soy as the public health hazard that it is.

Yesterday Robert Cohen of www.notmilk.com put a column on his large non-milk list against Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Mercola's warning against the use of soy products. I believe he did this because he advocates soy milk and sells a machine he calls soy toys. He also has a large calling with 7 Day Adventists who should also receive this rebuttal from Dr. Blaylock. Robert's information was wrong and I couldn't stop him nor could I convince him to allow Dr. Blaylock to show his side so people getting the information could form their opinion having both sides of the debate. Dr. Blaylock has answered Robert. This article is chock full of incredible, life-saving information everyone should have. I'm putting it on my lists but I hope
that others who have lists will, in fact, also share it, publish it and saturate the globe with it. Dr. Blaylock's web site with his books is www.russellblaylockmd.com and he also has an excellent newsletter. Also for more information on MSG go to www.truthinlabeling.org Dr. Blaylock can be seen in the movie Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World (cori@soundandfuryproductions.com) Stay tuned for Sweet Remedy, coming soon.

Dr. Blaylock's rebuttal was very necessary because "Truth" always comes first, and we're talking about people's lives. It's bad enough that industry and professional organizations who are funded by industry mislead the public. And the glutamate people are very powerful and continually put out propaganda to consumers. Dr. Blaylock's information is brilliant and is the truth of the matter.

All my best,

Response to Robert Cohen's Slanderous Statements

I have been sent an e-mail that you have circulated concerning my objections to soy-based foods. I must say your slanderous rantings are that of a three-year old having a temper tantrum, not a reasoned discussion of the issues involved. You portray yourself as a "scientist", but I fail to see your credentials posted. I am a board-certified neurosurgeon, retired Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurosurgey, Visiting Professor of Biology at Belhaven College and have written over 30 papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. I serve on the editorial board of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons and the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association.

My recent papers on the connection between excitotoxicity and fluoride neurotoxicity, and autism and the Gulf War Syndrome have received praise from leading authorities in each of these areas of research. I am the co-developer of one of the most commonly used methods for removal of intraventricular meningiomas, for which I am given credit in all major neurosurgical texts, along with my mentor Ludwig G, Kempe, one of the most famous names in Neurosurgey.

I have written three chapters in three medical textbooks as well as three nutrition books for the lay public, one of which you quoted, citing me as an expert in the field. I do extensive study in the field of excitotoxicity.

Since you are now in the business of selling soy products and a soy-milk making machine, I can understand your concern for your financial future. That has nothing to do with science. If your reading public wants an excellent review of the dangers of soy I suggest they read Dr. Kaayla Daniel's newly released book- The Whole Soy Story. You rambling defense of soy safety falls far short of science for a number of reasons. Aspartic acid, which is a naturally occurring amino acid, that, despite your statement that it is an essential amino acid, is not. It can be synthesized from oxaloacetate and glutamate via transamination. What you and many of the defenders of excitatory amino acid safety cannot seem to understand, or refuse to understand, is that free amino acids act differently than those occurring in whole foods.

Digestion breaks most proteins into amino acids only at a very slow rate. I quote Guyton's Textbook of Medical Physiology, page 794- " As a result the normal rate of absorption... (amino acid absorption is determined) by the rate at which they can be released from the proteins during digestion. For these reasons, essentially no free amino acids can be found in the intestine during digestion." When soybeans are processed, the excitotoxic amino acids (glutamate and aspartate) are not only released, they are concentrated. This is especially so in soy protein isolates and soy protein concentrates-which are used in soy milk. This means that your figures on the glutamic and aspartic acid contents is much lower than in fact exist in your product.

Olney and others have shown that human blood levels of glutamate increase as much as 20X on glutamate loading with concentrations found in such hydrolyzed proteins. These high blood levels are transferred into the human brain, especially under certain circumstances. Even in the completely normal brain, glutamate, aspartate and other excitotoxins can enter the brain via the circumventricular organs, which includes the hypothalamus. As you certainly know, or should know, one of the most sensitive structures in the brain is the arcuate nucleus. It is easily destroyed by levels of glutamate found in hydrolyzed proteins and this has been proven in laboratory studies.

It is also known that the blood-brain barrier contains glutamate receptors and that free glutamate at these concentrations, can open the barrier, allowing these high levels of glutamate to freely enter the brain. It is also known that a multitude of conditions open the barrier, including strokes (both gross and silent), brain injury, brain tumors, certain pesticides, mercury, lead, autoimmune disorders (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc), radiofrequency radiation (cell phones), seizures, multiple sclerosis and infections. Anyone with these conditions should avoid products that contain high levels of excitotoxins, such as hydrolyzed soy products. T his constitutes a large percentage of the population.

In addition, pregnant women should avoid such excitotoxin-containing products, since the placenta concentrates the glutamate, exposing the baby to much higher levels of glutamate than the mother. This has been proven. It has also been proven, that the baby's brain is 5X more sensitive to excitotoxin exposure than is the adult brain and that humans are 4X more sensitive than the next most sensitive animal species. And this is under the best of conditions.

It has been shown that inflammation dramatically increases the toxicity of excitotoxins on the brain, especially in small children. This means that any inflammatory condition, virus, bacterial infection or immune disorder, will increase a person's and especially a baby's risk of injury. Since the human baby's brain undergoes its most rapid growth and development from the last trimester of pregnancy through the first 2 years of life, it is most at risk from food-based excitotoxins, such as hydrolyzed soy.

A number of recent studies have shown that excess glutamate exposure during this period of "brain growth spurt" can alter the develop ment of the child's brain, especially neuroendocrine, cognitive, behavioral and language functions.

I am sure many of your readers are not aware that one of the earliest finding during glutamate research was that newborn animals fed glutamate developed gross obesity. This has been repeated numerous times and is used in obesity studies. An international panels of neuroscientist cited this as a possible reason for the obesity epidemic in the developed world. With the dramatic increase in glutamate food additives and consumption of soy products, especially soy based formula and soy milk by babies and small children, is is no wonder we are seeing this epidemic of childhood gross obesity and diabetes. Experimentally, glutamate exposure in these same doses can induce diabetes in animals.

Experiments have also shown that early exposure to glutamate can alter-permanently-the baby's vascular reactivity. This would have major implications in cardiovascular disease. Likewise, early exposure to higher levels of glutamate, equal to that of food-based excitotoxins, results in behavioral problems, endocrine disruption, increased susceptibility to seizures early in life and alterations in lipid profiles that increase the likelihood of cardiovascular disease later in life. In fact, newer studies have shown that elevated blood glutamate significantly increases free radical generation in the endothelial lining of blood vessels-the very mechanism that causes atherosclerosis.

Recent research has also shown that many tissues and organs in the body contain glutamate receptors and that overstimulation of these receptors can cause a number of clinical problems. For example, glutamate receptor stimulation of pulmonary tissues can result in bronchiospasm (as in asthma) and worsening of pulmonary function in those with lung diseases. The heart muscle and heart conduction system (AV and SA nodes) also contain numerous glutamate receptors. As I pointed out, the pancreas (ilets of Langerhans) also contain abundant glutamate receptors, and explains the resulting diabetes.

Even more frightening is the recent discovery that glutamate greatly enhances the growth of a number of cancers-especially brain cancers, such as the glioblastoma and malignant astrocytoma. Breast, lung and ovarian cancers have also been shown to spread and metastasize faster when glutamate levels are elevated. This has been proven, and is beyond dispute.

We know that under certain conditions, glutamate toxicity is greatly increased, which includes low magnesium levels, deficient mitochondrial energy production [such as hypoglycemia, mitochondrial disease, during aging, with all of the neurodegenerative disease (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and ALS] and most chronic diseases), during inflammation and when associated with other toxins-including mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, pesticides, fluoride and industrial chemicals. This would include tens of millions of Americans, who should be avoiding soy products.
While there is a lot more concerning excitotoxins, which can be found in my two books-Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills and Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life., unfortunately, there is a lot more involved than just excitotoxins. Soybeans and especially their hydrolyzed and processed products, contain high levels of manganese, aluminum and fluoride-all of which are powerful cell toxins, especially for brain cells.

Recent studies have shown that when aluminum is combined with fluoride, which occurs very easily, brain levels of aluminum are doubled. Extensive research connects aluminum in the brain with most of the neurodegenerative diseases. When hydrolyzed as in soy milk, the fluoride and aluminum easily bind, forming neurotoxic fluoroaluminum compounds. The concentration at which this occurs in 0.5 ppm, a very small concentration. Fluoroaluminum compounds interact with G-proteins, which are common cell communication systems, especially in the brain and operate most of the glutamanergic receptors in the brain (glutamate receptors).

I would call attention to a most important study reported in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in the year 2000. It describes a 25 year study of middle-aged individuals consuming a diet containing tofu, which found a strong association with brain atrophy and cognitive impairment and the consumption of this soy product. Brain atrophy was determined by MRI scans. In fact, low brain weight was seen in 12% of men consuming the lowest amount of tofu and 40% consuming the highest amount. This indicates a dose-response effect, making a stronger case of neurotoxicity. I can go on forever with research and studies showing a significant danger of consuming large amounts of soy products, especially soy milk, but I have other things to do-like research processed food toxicology .

I would hope that Mr. Cohen would in the future refrain from his temper tantrums and childish, slanderous name-calling. Neither I nor Dr. Mercola are idiots, morons or suffering from delusions. What we are not doing is making money selling soy products. I expect this response to appear on your website.
