Auto Iron Brake Dust and High Blood Pressure: The ‘Moon Dust’ Link

KESWICK, Va. -- Did you know that every person has 50,000 miles of blood vessels that are exposed to deadly iron? This is the concept that will be addressed by William J. Rowe, M.D. at the upcoming Internal Medicine and Patient Care Conference, March 26-27, 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

The information he will be presenting was derived from his studies of moon walkers, Neil Armstrong and James Irwin, who brought deadly iron dust into the habitat on their space suits and inhaled it for at least three days until their return to Earth.

His compelling research is further substantiated by new evidence from the lunar landing missions that show dust from car and truck brakes, far from being just unsightly grime on wheels, may be a key factor in the global epidemic of high blood pressure. The findings suggest that inhaling brake dust, spewed into the air around roads, is a health hazard for ordinary people, just as it was for astronauts who landed on the moon.

So, just as astronauts inhaled moon dust (which bears striking similarities to iron brake dust) that clung to their space suits and developed heart problems, people today are inhaling airborne iron brake dust and suffering similar effects.

The latest evidence of this link, perhaps the most significant health lesson from the entire manned space program, appears in a follow-up letter to the editor, "Brake Iron Dust Inhalation Intensifying Hypertension," in the International Journal of Cardiology. It builds on much-overlooked hints, dating to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, 2004; 351:1721-1730, which linked exposure to road traffic to the onset of a heart attack.

So, what does all this mean to the average person? Dr. Rowe says that people who run or bike outdoors are better off doing it indoors as they age because the risk to the heart is greater with urban pollution caused from iron brake dust.

And, since it has recently been determined by the American Heart Association that half of the U.S. population has hypertension, based on new criteria (130/80), Dr. Rowe believes that information regarding the adverse effects of iron brake dust contributing to hypertension must be promptly and widely disseminated.

"Until legislation is carried out to prevent iron brakes from being manufactured or until effective seals are made, we must offset the adverse effects which triggered the cardiovascular complications, particularly the severe hypertension of the moon walkers," Dr. Rowe says. "A high magnesium diet and well absorbed Mg supplements are warranted to reduce the iron's toxicity."

A colleague of Dr. Rowe's who read his first paper on the hazards of brake iron dust, said, "This is the clearest and most compelling explanation of an environmental hazard that I can recall."

Previously, Dr. Rowe has presented this concept at the Innovate Biotech 2017 conference in Brisbane, Australia and will also be presenting at the 10th Annual International Congress of Cardiology-2018 on November 28-30, 2018, in Rome, Italy.

New Major Scientific Discovery: Never before seen biominerals were discovered by the CEO of BioMineral Tea, Frankie Alfonso

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. -- The CEO of BioMineral Tea Organic Minerals Inc., Frankie Alfonso, discovered the visual evidence of biomineral structure and their various bio-photonic colors. A biomineral is an organic mineral from an herb which shares the same chemistry as the human body and is the key element which provides positive and negative electric charges to all cells and vital organs. Each different color biomineral represents a different frequency of energy which can also be measured in electron volts (eV).

"Biominerals contain an electric charge of 2-3eV which are needed by cells for their proper structure and function. Without the positive and negative ionic charges with in the biominerals cells cannot simply survive or function properly," says Alfonso.

Cells contain a plasma membrane which carries a negative electric charge provided by the biomineral chloride and is surrounded by a positive charge which comes from the biomineral potassium. The negative and positive charges within a cell act like an organic battery and produce an electric charge which is used to maintain its very structure and to also send electricity to neurons and muscles for information transfer and movement.

Simply put, without biominerals nothing in the human body works it's like trying to drive a car with no gasoline in the tank, says Alfonso. Vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids and enzymes only assist biominerals in carrying out functions and they cannot function without biominerals. The human body is electric and its essential electric fuel source is biominerals.

The heart is the most electrical part of the human body and it requires the biominerals magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, chloride, iron, calcium and potassium to make a heartbeat and regulate blood pressure. Without biominerals the heart cannot beat, this is how important biominerals are. All organs in the human body are electrical and are ruled by different biominerals that contain different frequencies or energy levels.

"It is electricity that makes us alive and the more electricity the more alive you are and when the body lacks the vital electric charge of biominerals it begins to break down and deteriorate. All organs in the body contain different types of cells which are made up of biominerals and since the human body cannot produce biominerals we must ingest them on a daily basis," says Alfonso.

Biominerals emit light called biophotons. These biomineral light emissions are the evidence that biominerals are electric.

Biominerals produce all the colors of the visible electromagnetic light spectrum. The blue biomineral is Calcium Phosphate and is needed by bones. The purple biomineral is Sodium Chloride and is needed for digestion, PH and electrolyte balance. The violet biomineral is Iron Phosphate which is needed to produce red blood cells. The pink biomineral is Potassium Phosphate which is needed by the brain and for PH and electrolyte balance. The red biomineral is Sodium Sulfate which is needed by the Liver.

The orange biomineral is Potassium Chloride needed by the lungs. The orange-yellow biomineral is Calcium Fluoride needed by the stomach, breast, spleen and teeth. The yellow biomineral is magnesium phosphate which is needed by the heart and the nervous system. The yellow-green biomineral is Potassium Sulfate which is needed by bowels. The green biomineral is Sodium Phosphate which is needed by the kidneys and bladder. The blue-green biomineral is Calcium Sulfate needed by male and female reproductive organs.

The aqua biomineral is Silica which is needed by the skin, hair and nails. The white biomineral is all colors in one and is the most powerful biomineral which carries the highest charge it is beneficial to all cells and is used by the pituitary gland in the brain which is the master control for all hormone production.

Not only did Frankie Alfonso discover the visual evidence of biominerals and patent his scientific discovery he also launched a special herbal tea containing all essential biominerals which brews 1 gallon of tea via a special large tea bag called BioMineral Tea.

BioMineral Tea(TM) is the world's first essential biominerals, vitamins and amino acids premium herbal infusion beverage. BioMineral Tea provides vital organ support, natural energy restoration, weight loss and regulation, immune support and mood support. Not only is it good for your whole body and all cells but it is also refreshing and delicious and can be enjoyed hot or iced by the whole family.

New Prize to Encourage Research in Brain-Computer Interaction

Author: World Mind Network
Dateline: Los Angeles, California (LOS ANGELES, Calif.)  | Fri, 21 Jun 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “In the wake of the recent Global Future 2045 Conference in New York City, a consortium of researchers has announced two prizes intended to inspire further exploration in these areas. The Harvard World Mind Network, Friends Beyond Borders, BatangasVarsitarian.net and the Futures Project will present the inaugural Joy Awards.”



A R T I C L E:

In the wake of the recent Global Future 2045 Conference in New York City, a consortium of researchers has announced two prizes intended to inspire further exploration in these areas. The Harvard World Mind Network, Friends Beyond Borders, BatangasVarsitarian.net and the Futures Project will present the inaugural Joy Awards.

Two prizes will be awarded: one for research into computer-based simulation of brain functioning, and the other for work in the repair and preservation of actual biological human brains leading to increased life spans.

In addition, committees are being set up at Harvard, Oxford, the Freie Universitat of Berlin, Tsinghua University and elsewhere to explore the apparently inevitable coalescing of computers and brains later in this century, and the possible implications, both good and bad, of these developments.

Advances in computer technology are racing towards a day when consciousness itself -- the one thing that seemingly differentiates humans and other animals from all other phenomena in the universe -- may be replicable electronically. Moore's Law states that computing power doubles every 24 months, a result that has remained remarkably constant since the 1950's. At some point computers will "catch up" with brains, at least in terms of processing power.

Meanwhile, advances in Neuroscience are moving quickly towards the capability to preserve human brains indefinitely using either chemical or cryogenic methods.

What all this means is that something approaching immortality may appear later in this century. This will have enormous implications for government, business, the environment, and even spirituality.

"Life as we know it is going to change significantly between now and mid-century," says FBB Committee Chair Sarah Mendel. "It's useful to start thinking about these issues now, so that we can anticipate new solutions and guide them carefully."

For more information contact friendsbeyondborders@gmail.com. For more information on the 2045 initiative, see http://2045.com/ .

The Harvard World Mind Network, Friends Beyond Borders, BatangasVarsitarian.net and the Futures Project will present the inaugural Joy Awards at the end of 2014.

Ground-Breaking Electromagnetic Wave Technology to Turn Science-Fiction to Science-Reality

Author: Dr. William Griffith
Dateline: Austin, Texas (AUSTIN, Texas)  | Thu, 18 Aug 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “According to Dr. William Griffith, a recently published article in the Journal of Applied Physics announces the discovery of a new electromagnetic wave technology - tentatively referred to as '3D TAP,' created by Dr. Griffith - that could dramatically change the way we understand the world around us.”



A R T I C L E:

According to Dr. William Griffith, a recently published article in the Journal of Applied Physics announces the discovery of a new electromagnetic wave technology - tentatively referred to as "3D TAP," created by Dr. Griffith - that could dramatically change the way we understand the world around us.

This wave technology, which exploits microwaves in a way previously un-seen in science, works by producing "magneto-static spin waves" into open space and analyzing how those waves are affected by the materials they come into contact with.

For those familiar with the spectrograph commonly used in astronomy - which determines the elemental make-up of celestial objects based on how those objects affect light passing through them - this is not an entirely unfamiliar concept. In fact there are a number of devices already in use that work in similar ways in a variety of fields. What makes this new technology so special is its ability to analyze a sample immediately and without interfering with it at all.

As Dr. William Griffith, the creator of this technology, explains, "Transmitted electromagnetic waves will respond to electric or magnetic fields. Such fields are typical within most materials and are caused by how the atoms and molecules are structured. Changes within the transmitted electromagnetic spin wave as it moves through the material are recorded and used to identify specific material, chemical, and physical properties - without ever tampering with that initial sample."

Classic Sci-Fi fans might immediately recognize the applications of this technology. While current non-invasive medical devices might require a thin tissue - say, an earlobe - to send waves through and determine vital signs, this technology introduces the ability to scan immediately, non-invasively, and anywhere on the body a physician might want. With proper R&D, this new technology may one day in the near future be combined with smart-phones to create scanners capable of analyzing vital-signs - or maybe anything else around us - with a quick point of the phone.

This technology can be applied within nearly any analytical process requiring identification of chemical and physical properties - industrial applications include extremely rapid analysis of process intermediates or products, medical applications include non-invasive chemical profiling of fluids and tissues, and a range of industry-specific applications also apply to address needs within research, defense, and other fields.

For more information regarding individual or corporate sponsorship opportunities and technology specifics, contact Dr. Griffith by email directly. Please be sure to include relevant background information on yourself and/or your organization. Benefactor anonymity and privacy are assured.
