Mayor Charlie Hales expressed his disappointment in a statement. “The measure lost despite my own ‘yes’ vote.That’s sure disappointing, but I accept the will of the voters.”
Portland voters first turned down fluoridation when the process began in the 1950′s, and again during the 1960′s. It was briefly approved in 1978, however that plan was overturned two years later, before any fluoride was ever added to the water.
After rumors of backroom deals between the City Council and fluoridation supporters emerged, clean water activists sprung to action. In response to last years city council vote to begin fluoridating water serving 900,000 citizens, protestors organized efforts to bring the issue to the public for a vote. After gathering over 40,000 signatures the measure was brought forth.
The issue also wound up politicizing a statewide health report that showed falling cavity and tooth decay rates in the state over the past five years. One of the report’s authors said she felt pressure by Upstream Health, the group spearheading fluoridation efforts, to present the findings in a certain way.
Oregon Live covered the details of the report:
“The percentage of children who already had a cavity fell from 64 to 52 statewide, according to the survey. That represents a drop of nearly one-fifth.
The percentage of children with untreated decay also declined from 36 to 20 statewide, the survey found. That’s down by nearly half.
And the other major measure, rampant decay — which is defined as seven treated or untreated cavities — fell from 20 percent to 14 percent statewide. That’s down by about one-third. “
With this latest rejection Portland becomes the largest city in the United States that does not add fluoride to the water. Speaking to the Portland Tribune, Kim Kaminski, leader of Clean Water Portland said, “At a very fundamental level, people understand that we don’t want more chemicals in our water.”
This year marks the 68th anniversary of fluoridation – the first U.S. city to adjust the fluoride levels in its water supply was Grand Rapids, Mich. on January 25, 1945, according to the American Dental Association.
Despite the fact that most mainstream health organizations, including the American Medical Association, endorse fluoridation over 200 communities have rejected the practice in recent years. Opponents of fluoridation in Portland worry by adding fluoride to the water it will ruin the city’s famously pristine water supply, as well as violate an individuals civil liberties, by forced medicating through the water.
Portlands stance against water fluoridation has become an attacking point for many publications around the country. Accusations of being anti-science, or a conspiracy theorist abound for those opposing the controversial practice.
Despite a recent Salon article that claims the Fluoride Free movement is “Without a study to stand on” there are a number of studies that show a variety of health concerns . The article also states, “The (fluoride) ion occurs naturally in ground water in varying levels, some that are in fact too high.” While this claim is true it is also misleading.
When a city chooses to add “fluoride” to the water supply they are actually adding the toxic substance hydrofluorosilic acid. Hydrofluorosilic acid is a by-product of phosphate mining, and if not for cities purchasing the substance for millions of dollars, it would have to be disposed of at a hefty cost to the producer.
The history books are filled with examples of medical and scientific practices that were seen as safe at one point only to be demonized later. The early critics of any common practice are often ridiculed until new evidence creates a shift in understanding and future practices. When it comes to water fluoridation we are dealing with a similar situation.

1.3 million people do not have safe, clean drinking water after the city of Montreal issued a boil water advisory.
The water throughout most of the island — the entire borough of St. Laurent, from LaSalle to Pointe aux Trembles and everywhere in between — is not safe to drink.
Water throughout the boroughs of Anjou, Villeray and St. Leonard, while north of the Metropolitan, is also unsafe, as is water in the towns of Mount Royal, Hampstead, Westmount, Cote Saint Luc, Montreal East, Montreal West and the off-island town of Charlemagne.
The city is advising everyone affected to boil their water for 60 seconds before consuming, using it for brushing teeth, or for cooking or washing food.
Officials say any water that has been stored since last night, either in pitchers, used in ice cubes, or something similar should be thrown out.
Non-boiled water can be safely used for washing clothes or for bathing.
“This is strictly a preventative measure at this point. We didn’t notice any bacterial contamination the water — strictly turbidity, just sediment,” said Gordon Routley Division Chief of the Montreal fire department.

In what could be described as a victory for the health and well-being of our children, it has been reported in the Jerusalem Post that Israel will now stop forcing local authorities to add Fluoride into their drinking water supplies.
Israel’s Health Minister, Yael German, has taken this drastic step to ensure that the residents of Israel are not forced to ingest fluoride with every drop of water they drink, but rather use tools such as education as a means of protecting children’s teeth.

Research shows that fluoride chemicals added to U.S. public water supplies are not reducing tooth decay as promoted and promised by government agencies,
Using federal statistics, the West Virginia University Rural Health Research Center reports that urban U.S. children, with more exposure to fluoridated water and dental care, have just as many cavities as less fluoridation-exposed rural children. (1)
The researchers write: “For children’s dental health measures, it was found that fluoridation rates were not significantly related to the measures of either caries or overall condition of the teeth for urban or rural areas.”
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says fluoridation reduces tooth decay. But, this study and others shows it hasn’t. Tooth decay crises are occurring in all fluoridated cities, states and countries. And, the CDC reports the incidence and severity of children’s primary tooth decay recently increased.
“Fortunes are wasted on fluoridation schemes that fail to prevent cavities while unnecessarily exposing children to fluoride’s adverse drug effects,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President.
New York City spends millions of dollars annually on fluoridation. Yet another study proves fluoridation fails in NYC also.
NYC’s Chinese-American 2-to-11-year-olds, living in the low-income area of Manhattan’s Chinatown have much more primary tooth decay when compared to white and other minority groups nationally (NYS Dental Journal June/July 2011).
Most of NYC’s Chinese-American children are U.S. born – 63% have primary tooth decay compared to only 38% of children in a national study.
The authors write, “This high prevalence of caries in the primary dentition is also similar to a national survey of children in mainland China, where three out of four children were found to be affected by caries in primary teeth,” averaging about 5 decayed teeth.
Chinese-American children in fluoridated Oakland, California, suffer the same fate and can have from 6-20 cavities in their mouths. About 2,000 need costly sedation to be treated, according to the California Health Report. (April 15, 2012)

As some of you may know the Canadian Awareness crew a long with Press for Truth have asked Justin Trudeau on Oct 27 2012 some very important questions, which he gave answers to. Click HERE to view video.
We asked him if he thinks fluoride should be taken out of tap water. Trudeau told us that he hasn’t seen convincing evidence that fluoride is a health problem.
We also asked him if he would restore the Bank of Canada to fix his father’s wrong doings, since it was his father who ultimately changed our banking system and gave the power to private banks. He replied to us that he trusts the former Governor of Bank of Canada, Mark Carney- who is known Bilderberg attendee.
And lastly we asked him if he would attend the Bilderberg meeting if he was ever invited since his father was an attendee. He told us that he’s never been invited and never really answered the question.
On a separate date, which was February 7 2013, we decided to give Trudeau another visit to ask him some more questions. As we went up to him he remembered us from last time and automatically cut each of us off from asking a question and said something similar to this: “they are all conspiracy theories, I haven’t seen convincing evidence of fluoride yet, I’m not going to Bilderberg any time soon and I trust Mark Carney with what he’s doing with Bank of Canada.” The funny thing is, at the moment of time during that statement Mark Carney was no longer the Governor of BOC, he moved his position to England.
Click HERE to view the above mentioned video.
- He called fluoride a conspiracy theory. Harvard University published an article titled Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children where it states that fluoride lowers IQ and that “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain…The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”
- For those of you who do not know what the Bilderberg Group is, The Bilderberg Group is a Club that create meetings that are invite-only once a year each time randomly picked in any part of the world with up to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe and the people attending are people that have a lot of influence and dominance over the world. Royal families attend, presidents, prime minsters, premiers, bankers, media and monster CEO’s and employee’s of corporate tycoons. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. All the meetings are done behind closed doors and things decided are not in the best interest of the people.
Bilderberg Group is no conspiracy theory. Stephen Harper has attended before and Michael Ignatieff (head of Liberal Party in 2011) denounced secrecy of Bilderberg Group when the Canadian Awareness crew confronted him on April 7 2011.
Click HERE to view above mentioned video and Click HERE to view a documentary on Bilderberg Group.
- Trudeau called restoring the Bank of Canada a conspiracy theory. In 1974 Pierre Trudeau, his father, changed the policies of the Bank of Canada so that private foreign banks can have control over the Canadian currency. Banks like CIBC, RBC, TD Bank, Scotia Bank, HSBC etc are the ones that create the money and get a bank note company to print the paper currency. The Bank of Canada does not create the populations currency, they contract the work out to BA International (which announced on Jan 1 2013 they are stopping the production of making paper currency). The Bank of Canada can create the economy’s money for free instead of charging the public compounded interest on every dollar that is created. Because of this there is a federal lawsuit against the Bank of Canada because it’s not being used properly.

We examine the composition and state of tap water with a brief look at my water filtration ‘overflow’ tray. To break it down, this video offers a glimpse into just how putrid a lot of the nation’s tap water truly is. I am using a 12 stage filtration device that has a hookup to the tap water from my area. This is after only one month and a few days of letting the tray collect build up.
The system currently produces around 3-4 gallons or so per day, but can make up to around 7. It is widely known that tap water on average contains antibiotics, birth control residue (especially in major cities), antidepressant residue, fecal matter, urine, chlorine, heavy metals, and an array of other contaminants. To be clear, I’m actually not selling a water filtration device. In fact, I make zero dollars when you purchase one. That said, yes, I do believe you should get one.
As for the right kind of filter, it’s important to get the best quality you can but anything is really better than nothing. To start, you can purchase an over or under the counter carbon or reverse osmosis unit. If you do choose reverse osmosis, it’s important to remember that you should resupply the minerals back into the water that are removed from the filtration process. You can do this quite simply using Himalayan sea salt, apple cider vinegar, or a mineral filter. It’s relatively inexpensive using the first two, and can be done by adding a few pinches of the salt or a cap full of apple cider vinegar into a gallon or so.
Once again, though, you should really buy anything at all if necessary. Even something like a shower filter, which doesn’t filter our fluoride unless it has a reverse osmosis unit inside or operates from a whole house filtration level, is a great way to protect yourself from problematic substances. Chlorine, for example, can really take a toll on your skin health.

Chlorine has long been added to tap water in many communities to ensure it is free of bugs and bacteria. The chemical is also found in many other household items, as well as in pesticides that are often used to treat produce.
New research from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York has now found evidence that the use of chlorine is associated with a rising number of people with food allergies.
Researchers found adults with high levels of dichlorophenol (a chemical by-product of chlorine) in their urine, were as much as 80 percent more likely to also have a food allergy. That’s a shocking find; especially when upwards of 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies.
Lead study author Elina Jerschow, assistant professor of allergy and immunology at Einstein, said the research “shows that high levels of dichlorophenol-containing pesticides can possibly weaken food tolerance in some people, causing food allergy.”
She noted that past studies “have shown that both food allergies and environmental pollution are increasing in the United States” and the “results of our study suggest these two trends might be linked, and that increased use of pesticides and other chemicals is associated with a higher prevalence of food allergies.”
As for chlorinated tap water, Jerschow said that switching to bottled water as a way to reduce the risk of developing a food allergy may not prove successful. “Other dichlorophenol sources, such as pesticide-treated fruits and vegetables, may play a greater role in causing food allergy,” she added.
Jerschow’s study looked at 10,348 participants in a US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 2005-2006.

The Georgia Guidestones is a large granite monument in Elbert County, Georgia. It has been referred to as an American Stonehenge. The person or group that paid for its construction is a mystery. Inscribed on its stones are ten commandments, written in twelve languages, for what it describes as an Age of Reason. Many believe it is an agenda for the New World Order.
The first commandment is: “Maintain humanity under 500 million in perpetual balance with nature.” Since the world population now stands at over seven billion, that means the commandment calls for the elimination of 93% of the world’s population.
THE CULLING ALREADY HAS BEGUN
The Great Culling of the human race already has begun. It is being done through chemicals added to our drinking water, food, medicines, and the air we breathe — chemicals that have the known effect of reducing fertility and shortening lifespan. This message can no longer be dismissed as conspiracy theory. The facts are in plain view.
This documentary is the first of a three-part series. It shows how additives to our drinking water, such as fluoride, supposedly to combat tooth decay, in reality are covert doses of death. It also shows how you can protect yourself and your family.

In July 2012 a private businessman named Russ George, or as the Vancouver Sun has dubbed him the “rogue climate hacker”. Dumped over 100 tonnes of iron into the pacific ocean, just off the coast of British Columbia in the largest ever geoengineering experiment.
The iron is meant to spawn artificial plankton that absorbs carbon dioxide and then sink to the ocean bed. A geoengineering technique known as ocean fertilization. George hopes that this will be lucrative in carbon credits. But even the strongest of man made climate change proponents agree that he has gone too far, and some are outraged. According to the main stream news outlets.
When George and his former company Planktos Inc. attempted this very same project in the canary islands, the company boats where banned from ports by the Spanish and Ecuadorean governments. This is because many scientists believe that ocean fertilization can lead to toxic tides, lifeless waters, and increase ocean acidification.
In the above Vancouver Sun article Ken Denman is quoted:
It’s the ocean this time, and the experiment will likely do no serious damage, says Ken Denman, an oceanographer at the University of Victoria. Next time, he says, it could be some multimillionaire or “rogue” country shooting sulfate aerosols into the atmosphere to block incoming solar radiation in a bid to slow global warming.
When in fact the aerosol spraying campaign are already, and have been running for some time. This is greatly illustrated in a report titled case orange, which can be read about HERE.
The part that is most troubling to me in this story is how a private business man can just go out into the ocean and dump 100 tonnes of iron into the ocean. Many of you have probably read about Bill gates and Richard Branson funding these types of projects. Which are usually comprised of experts from Universities and Governments.
This is new territory now. A blatant display of private companies getting into geoengineering, raises even further questions about the practice (as if we needed more). Is weather manipulation not only for governments, but for private companies (for their own profit) as well? Will this bring public private partnerships into the field? Are private companies being used, so that governments have “plausible deniability”? Is it simply a display of the corporate world trying to but in to make a profit? Etc.
But looking past all of those questions, is this one. How long are people going to ignore these projects that are killing us and our planet off? How long are they simply going to be labeled as conspiracy theory? I can only hope that we do not wait until it is to late!

The ‘Brown Rain’ Event
Remember the odd “rain” that left Chico’s cars streaked with brown ash-like residue? What follows is MRG’s report from Marla Crites (and Betty Credit):
The Weather Event of May 14, 2012
In the words of one of our members who was awake during the night of the strange rain…
“It was called rain, however, myself, my son, and others I have spoken to, did not feel the wetness of the drops. The water seemed to dissipate at touch. At 2:30 a.m., my son woke me up to tell me of the powder that had covered my car. At the time, I thought it was pollen from the trees, blown off from the rain. However, upon morning, I definitely had questions about what had actually happened the night prior. My car, and all others I saw in my immediate area, were covered with a tan-colored light ash. It was such a fine powder; yet, I could not drive my car without washing my window. One of the creepiest experiences was driving to the store. Every car I passed, that had obviously been exposed was covered with the same thing. Then, to top things off, I had to go to the car wash to clean my car, because it looked like it was covered in volcanic ash!! When I got to the car wash, there was a line of cars that was unprecedented. Every car was covered with the same thing. By the time I exited the wash, the cars in line were uncountable. No explanation, no one seemed bothered by this ‘EVENT’.”
Adding to her description: Each car was not only covered in a fine tan powder, but there were often streaks through the powder as if made by water. The “ash” was not easy to scrape off the windshields, but I managed to obtain several samples for testing.
The Official Explanation
The Enterprise Record newspaper ran a story the next day in which Anthony Watts, longtime local meteorologist, was interviewed. He surmised that agricultural activity had raised a great deal of dust which an updraft carried to the upper atmosphere from where it fell as the “brown rain”. It is true that plumes of dust did rise as farmers worked the dry fields. (although this happens every year) I enquired of the Air Quality Board and the Public Health Environmental people as to what they thought had caused this strange event. They all lined up behind Anthony’s explanation and had no plans to test any of the resulting powder.
Chico Sky Watch Tests
A ranch manager in Durham tasted (yes!) the powder, said it was vile and not dirt or pollen. A CSW member poured purified water on her solar panel, caught it at the bottom in a clean bowl, and took it to Basic Lab. Results were 52,000 ppb aluminum, 480 barium and 413 strontium. To put these numbers in perspective, aluminum should be 0.5 ppb and 1,000 ppb is the EPA Maximum Contaminant Level and Mandatory Action Level. There should be no barium or strontium in rain. So these numbers are exceedingly and alarmingly high.
We sent a sample of the powder to Larry Meyer in Oregon who cultured it and sent the growths on to Pro-Lab in Florida. Results were that 6 different, not uncommon molds were present. The molds are known to cause asthma, hay fever and allergies. Links to both lab reports follow.
Basic Lab Report
1. Is there any way to distinguish natural soil based aluminum from the aluminum oxide that is a component of aerosol spray?
2. How likely is it that dust from farming activities would account for the 52K ppb in the rain?
3. How abnormal for rainfall is the type and amount of molds identified by Pro-Lab?
4. Is there mold in “normal” rainwater?
See http://www.chicoskywatch.org/tests for more information.
Chico Rain Lab Report
(Gratitude to Larry Meyer, MRG Senior Research Associate)
Recently, Morgellons Research Group (MRG) received an interesting specimen from Chico Skywatch, collected from a most unusual rainstorm which fell over a sizable area of Butte County, California. Marla Crites of Chico Skywatch in submitting the specimen wrote that “brown rain” had fallen on this locale on May 14, 2012.
Chico Sample As Received by L. Meyer

The Chico sample as sent to Pro-Labs (L. Meyer)
MRG performed a microscopic examination/photography of the brown finely granular sample and placed a portion in agar to observe what might grow. The resulting “bloom” was sent to our laboratory for identification. Six varieties of fungal material were identified.
The ProLab Report
Prolab report on chico rain
Dr. Richie Shoemaker, MD of Pocomoke, Maryland, in his book MOLD WARRIORS, states that there is evidence several fungal varieties that may have been “weaponized”.
At this time, Morgellons Research Group wishes to initiate a research project to study rain and snow precipitates and is pleased to invite you to precipitate. It is our desire to collect data from the various areas where Skywatch groups are active. Data obtained would be shared with participating groups and published on MRG’s website.
The Second Collection Sent to the Lab
by Larry Meyer
On June 28th, I used a clean petri dish to capture the first five raindrops to fall that day at my location on the Oregon Coast. Agar was added and a bloom began within a day. Shown is one of several varieties of Fungus from that rain:

Six (6) species of Fungi and One (1) yeast were found in both of these samples:
Cladophialophora was found in Portland, Oregon
For comparison, one can see that a mixture of these could be devastating, not only to crops, ocean life but human life as well. How did these spores and mycelia come together and form a brown rain? Yellow rain is very similar. Red rain is from an algae.
I. Cladosporium, (found in both Samples of Brown Rain) Examples of Cladosporium
A . Cladosporium …..C Herbarum
Spores of Cladosporium spp. probably occur more abundantly worldwide than any other spore type and are the dominant airborne spores in many areas, especially in temperate climates. (1, 2, 3, 4) Although C. cladosporioides may be the most prevalent airborne species, C. herbarum frequently dominates indoor and outdoor air and is a major source of fungal inhalant allergens. (3, 5)There are about 500 species of Cladosporium. Many are saprophytic on plant litter.
C. herbarum is widely distributed in our environment and is a major source of fungal inhalant allergen. (4) C. herbarum is one of the most common environmental fungi to be isolated worldwide. It occurs abundantly on fading or dead leaves of herbaceous and woody plants, as a secondary invader on necrotic leaf spots, and has frequently been isolated from air, foodstuffs, paints, textiles, humans and numerous other substrates. It is also known to occur on old carpophores of mushrooms and other fungi and as a common endophyte, especially in temperate regions.

C. Cladosporium elatum, Cladosporium herbarum, Cladosporium sphaerospermum, and Cladosporium cladosporioides.
Cladosporium is the genera most frequently encountered in both outdoor and indoor air. It is frequently found in elevated levels in water-damaged environments. Some species may be resistant to certain types of treated lumber. Cladosporium appears gray to black or very dark green and can have a powdery appearance. The genus Cladosporium includes over 30 species. The most common ones include Cladosporium elatum, Cladosporium herbarum, Cladosporium sphaerospermum, and Cladosporium cladosporioides. http://www.mold-help.org/content/view/414/.
D. Other Forms of Cladosporiums
E. More information on Cladosporiums
Cladosporium is one of the molds that cause the most allergy symptoms, producing a positive skin reaction in allergy-sensitive individuals. In certain people, a high concentration of mold is not needed to trigger a reaction. Those most at risk to develop allergic reactions are infants, children, pregnant women, and the elderly. http://www.moldunit.com/cladosporium.html
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms most common to Cladosporium mold are: congested or runny nose, sinus problems, red and watery eyes, skin irritation, fatigue, sore throat, cough and hoarseness. Over time, more serious symptoms may develop such as, ear inflammation; nose bleeds and joint pain, without swelling.
C. herbarum produces enzymes which are used in the transformation of steroid intermediates such as pregnenolone and progesterone, biologically important hormones used in the industrial production of oral contraceptives. http://www.emlab.com/app/fungi/Fungi.po?event=fungi&type=primary&species=13
Pathogenicity and Clinical Significance Cladosporium spp. are causative agents of skin lesions, keratitis, onychomycosis, sinusitis and pulmonary infections. http://www.doctorfungus.org/thefungi/clados
II. Epicoccum, the second Fungi found in Brown Rain (Examples)
A. Fungus of the Month: Epicoccum – By Dawne Yates
Epicoccum (phonetic: Epp-ee-cock-um) is a very common fungus that is an early secondary invader on all sorts of plants, particularly damaged plant tissue, and is often found on leaf spots with other fungi. It has been isolated from air, moldy paper, plant materials, animals, insects, foodstuffs, textiles, soil, and occasionally occurs in house dust. It is mostly saprophytic (obtaining food from dead or decaying organic matter), or weakly parasitic. It is ubiquitous in nature (found everywhere) and is commonly found in outdoor air. It is known to be very resistant to changes in water activity; having been known to resume growth after long periods of drying.

Spores are produced very quickly and our MoldRange™ data shows the highest recovery rate, of about 30% to 35%, in the summer and the lowest recovery rate, of about 10% to 15%, in the winter. See Figure 2 below.
Figure 2: Frequency of detection and spore density by month for Epicoccum.
The gray bars represent the frequency of detection, from 0 to 1 (1=100%), graphed against the left axis. The red, green, and purple lines represent the 2.5, 50, and 97.5 percentile airborne spore densities, when recovered, graphed against the right hand axis. (Source: EMLab™ MoldRange data. Total sample size for this graph: 39,878.)
In culture, Epicoccum is fast growing on general fungal media, and produces colonies which are woolly and/or downy in appearance. Colony colors include yellow, orange, red or brown. As the colony ages they usually become darker and black dots (spores growing on colonies) may be observed on the colony surface. These are tufts of hyphae that are cushion-shaped, non-convoluted and are called sporodochium (a cushion-like mass of conidiophores, conidia and conidiogenous cells produced above the substrate).
When observed on spore trap samples, immature Epicoccum spores may look round, non-septate, and may be pale in color, whereas when they are mature, can appear rough, warty-looking and brown to black in color, with both transverse and oblique septa, which makes them resemble a soccer ball. The broad attachment area at the base is often visible. Mature spores are most commonly 15-25 µm in diameter, but are also seen smaller and much larger (up to 50 µm diameter). Intact spores are distinctive, however young immature spores may be confused with Ulocladium, Stemphylium or possibly Alternaria. On a tape lift, Epicoccum is easily distinguishable providing the growth is mature enough to include the conidiophores and conidia.

Epicoccum has been known to cause Type 1 allergies (hay fever and asthma). Rarely, it can cause infections in the skin due to its ability to grow at 37°C. http://www.emlab.com/s/sampling/env-report-09-2006.html
B. Non-Food Allergy — fungus, Epicoccum
An Epicoccum fungus allergy is an adverse reaction by the body’s immune system to spores produced by a fungus called Epicoccum. Epicoccum tends to be found in grassland and agricultural areas. Symptoms tend to occur in a seasonal pattern as spore production by molds tends to increase and decrease with changes in seasons. The specific symptoms that can result can vary amongst patients. http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/n/non_food_allergy_fungus_epicoccum/intro.htm
C. Epicoccum Purpurascens
Epicoccum is a dematiaceous mitosporic mould widely distributed and commonly isolated from air, soil and foodstuff. It is found also in some animals and textiles. It is the common causative agent of leaf spots of various plants. The genus Epicoccum contains a single species, Epicoccum purpurascens.
Epicoccum grows rapidly and produces woolly to cottony or felty colonies on potato dextrose agar at 25?C. From the front, the colonies are yellow to orange, orange to red or pink initially and become greenish brown to black by aging. From the reverse, the same color is observed but is usually more intense than in the front view. Epicoccum may produce a diffusable pigment which turns the color of the inoculated medium to yellow, orange, red or brown. Black dots (100-2000 ?m in diameter) may be observed macroscopically on the colony surface. These are the tufts of hyphae which have conidiophores on their surface. These tufts of hyphae are cushion-shaped and nonconvoluted and are called sporodochia. http://www.mold-help.org/content/view/416/
III. Fusarium: The Third Fungus Found in Brown Rain
Is this where the Fungal Agent crosses the Border to Bioweapon Agent?
A. Fusarium sporotrichoides
Contamination was found in affected grain in 1932, spurring research for medical purposes and for use in biological warfare. … The Soviets were accused of using the agent, dubbed “yellow rain“, to cause 6,300 deaths in Laos, Kampuchea, and Afghanistan … en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusarium_infections
B. 5 types of Fusarium
Fungal microbiota from rain water and pathogenicity of Fusarium species isolated from atmospheric dust and rainfall dust.
Journal of industrial microbiology & biotechnology » Fungal microbiota from rain water and pathogenicity of Fusarium…
In order to determine the presence of Fusarium spp. in atmospheric dust and rainfall dust, samples were collected during September 2007, and July, August, and October 2008. The results reveal the prevalence of airborne Fusarium species coming from the atmosphere of the South East coast of Spain. Five different Fusarium species were isolated from the settling dust: Fusarium oxysporum, F. solani, F. equiseti, F. dimerum, and F. proliferatum. Moreover, rainwater samples were obtained during significant rainfall events in January and February 2009. Using the dilution-plate method, 12 fungal genera were identified from these rainwater samples. Specific analyses of the rainwater revealed the presence of three species of Fusarium: F. oxysporum, F. proliferatum and F. equiseti. A total of 57 isolates of Fusarium spp. obtained from both rainwater and atmospheric rainfall dust sampling were inoculated onto melon (Cucumis melo L.) cv. PiÃ±onet and tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cv. San Pedro. These species were chosen because they are the main herbaceous crops in Almeria province. The results presented in this work indicate strongly that spores or propagules of Fusarium are able to cross the continental barrier carried by winds from the Sahara (Africa) to crop or coastal lands in Europe. Results show differences in the pathogenicity of the isolates tested. Both hosts showed root rot when inoculated with different species of Fusarium, although fresh weight measurements did not bring any information about the pathogenicity. The findings presented above are strong indications that long-distance transmission of Fusarium propagules may occur. Diseases caused by species of Fusarium are common in these areas. They were in the past, and are still today, a problem for greenhouses crops in AlmerÃa, and many species have been listed as pathogens on agricultural crops in this region. Saharan air masses dominate the Mediterranean regions. The evidence of long distance dispersal of Fusarium spp. by atmospheric dust and rainwater together with their proved pathogenicity must be taken into account in epidemiological studies.

V. The Fifth Fungi Found in Brown Rain: Ulocladium
A. General Information about Ulocladium
What are some of Ulocladiums molds characteristics?
Grows well on general cellulose surfaces.
Where does Ulocladium grow outside?
Often found growing in soil, dung, paint, grasses, fibers, wood, decaying plant material, paper, and textiles.
Where does Ulocladium grow inside?
Grows indoors on cellulose containing materials such as gypsum board, paper, paint, tapestries, jute, other straw materials. Ulocladium has a high water requirement.
Is Ulocladium “black mold”?
The term black mold (also “toxic black mold”) is not scientific but is widely used by the media to usually reference Stachybotrys molds.
Health Concerns about Ulocladium
Is Ulocladium a potential allergen?
Some people may experience hay fever or asthma. This type of mold cross reacts with Alternaria, adding to the allergenic burden of Alternaria-sensitive patients.
Does Ulocladium present any unique human risks? (as pathogen, opportunist or contaminant)*
Rare cases reported of subcutaneous tissue infection.
Can Ulocladium produce toxins?*
Identification of Ulocladium
Can Ulocladium be identified via Air Sampling?
May be confused with spores of Alternaria and Pithomyces.
Can it be identified via Direct Sampling?
May be confused with spores of Alternaria.
What are some of Ulocladium’s industrial uses?
*Other types of disease not listed in this description may also result from exposure.

VII. Yeast Cells and conversion to myclial (fungal) form depending on Temperature
A. Yeast converts to Fungi
“The fungal infection taught me many different things. I discovered a two slide culture technique that allowed me to observe the conversion of yeast cells to a mycelial form that developed as the yeast cells cooled to room temperature. This culture method gave me ample opportunity to watch the mycelial growth. I also recorded interactions among my immune cells and the infecting yeast cells by examining stained slides of fresh sputum samples.
In this report, I have included a description of the 2 slide culture and a collection of photomicrographs that I took over several months. The medical care I received was disappointing. I am concerned for others who develop this infection. It is unlikely that they will be diagnosed. See my reflections on an illness.
The following photomicrograph show white, unstained yeast cells of different sizes and dark stained lymphocytes that often attach to yeast cells. In other slides, dense clusters of macrophages and neutrophils are also seen. The immune defense involves the coordinated attack of different cell types with different jobs. The yeast cells are apparently difficult to kill.”
My lymphocytes (with dark stained nuclei) attacking blastomycosis cells 1000 X Fresh sputum sample. One giant yeast cell is obvious, other small, recently budded yeast cells are more numerous.
See Image library for detailed study of this dimorphic fungal pathogen.
B. Title : Saccharomyces (yeast)
X1000 Text : A large group of single celled yeast are shown here. Yeast is an ascomycete, but it reproduces almost exclusively by asexual reproduction (budding). Each cell just divides in two. This genus of yeast is used for baking (it makes the carbon dioxide that helps dough to rise) and also beer and wine making (in anaerobic conditions yeast produces alcohol). The genome of yeast was recently sequenced. http://www1.fccj.org/dbyres/images/yeast1000.jpg
C. Candida Yeast
Candida albicans chlamydoconidia, grown on cornmeal agar with 10% tween, Dalmau method
This species is the most commonly-isolated yeast in human disease. It has been implicated in both superficial and systemic disease. Recent reports of infections include corneal , ear , and bloodstream . Although this species continues to be the most common species isolated in bloodstream infections, reports show that the incidence is decreasing and the resistance is rare in neonatal populations

Beyond even the medical debate over the benefits of fluoride, or an examination of the history and sponsorship of this process, there is a deeper debate taking place. This debate is not over whether or not fluoride is safe or effective, but whether the government should be adding it to the water supply in the first place.
As many argue, this practice amounts to forced medication of the population without their consent, and without regard to the case history or medical circumstances of any of the “patients” (i.e. the general public) who are exposed to this “medication.”

The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the “third eye”) is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.The Secret: What they don’t want you to KNOW!
Every human being’s Pineal Gland or The third eye can be activated to spiritual world frequencies and enables you to have the sense of all knowing, godlike euphoria and oneness all around you. A pineal gland once tuned into to proper frequencies with help of meditation, yoga or various esoteric, occult methods, enables a person to travel into other dimensions, popularly known as astral travel or astral projection or remote viewing.
With more advance practice and ancient methods it is also possible to control the thoughts and actions of people in the physical world. Yes, it is bizarre, but the United States, former Soviet Union governments and various shadow organization have been doing this type of research for ages and have succeed far beyond our imagination.
Pineal Gland is represented in Catholicism in Rome; they depict the pineal as a pine cone in art. The ancient societies like the Egyptians and the Romans knew the benefits and exemplified this in their vast symbologies with a symbol of an eye.
In the late 90′s, a scientist by the name of Jennifer Luke carries out the first study the effects of sodium fluoride on the pineal gland. She determined that the pineal gland, located in the middle of the brain, was a target for fluoride. The pineal gland simply absorbed more fluoride than any other physical matter in the body, even bones.
Pineal gland is like a magnet to sodium fluoride. This calcifies the gland and makes it no longer effective in balancing the entire hormonal processes through the body.
Various Researches every since have proved Sodium Fluoride goes to the most important gland in the brain? It’s the only thing that attacks the most important center of our gland in the brain. It’s prevalent in foods, beverages and in our bath and drinking water. Sodium Fluoride is put in 90% of the United States water supply. Water filters you buy in supermarkets do not take the fluoride out. Only reverse osmosis or water distillation. The cheapest way is to buy a water distiller.
Sodium Fluoride is in our water supply, food, pepsi, coke, to dumb down the masses, literally!. The fluoride was introduced into the water by the Nazis and the Russians in their concentration camps to make the camp population docile and do not question authority.
