    I remember seeing a few years ago articles posted about the strange things published that is considered nonsense today. I remember one was him strongly opposed to anything with aluminum. It's becoming increasingly mentioned as that being a major link to several autoimmune diseases and alheimers/dementia/etc. Since flouride is a byproduct of it, that might be the link of flouride on mental side effects as well. But anybody who states 100 things as fact, some by default can end up being true.

    Medical quackery was more Clayton Woodworth's preserve in the Golden Age than Rutherford, from what I recall.

    I think your right wasn't he the one that wrote about the evil of vaccines and serums?

    The Golden Age 1921 Oct 12 p.17

    Vaccination never prevented anything and never will, and is the most barbarous practice... Use your rights as American citizens to forever abolish the devilish practice of vaccination.

    The Golden Age 1923 January 3rd, p.214

    The public is not generally aware of how large an industry is the manufacture of serums, anti-toxins and vaccines, or that big business controls the whole industry......the boards of health endeavor to start an epidemic of smallpox, diphtheria, or typhoid that they may reap a golden harvest by inoculating an unthinking community for the very purpose of disposing of this manufactured filth...Vaccination summed up is the most unnatural, unhygienic, barbaric, filthy, abhorrent, and most dangerous system of infection known. Its vile poison taints, corrupts, and pollutes the blood of the healthy, resulting in ulcers, syphilis, scrofula, erysipelas, tuberculosis, cancer, tetanus, insanity, and death

    Controversial Alzheimer's risk factors:

    The known risk factor is heredity.

    Flouoride is both protective and toxic. How can that be? Even innocuous substances can be dangerous in large amounts. One can overdose on any of the elements, like iron, magnesium, and zinc. But we also need a certain amount for our bodily functions. Life is a balancing act.

    In the 1920's, diphtheria was a major cause of illness and death for children in the U.S. In 1921, a total of 206,000 cases and 15,520 deaths were reported. With vaccine development in 1923, new cases of diphtheria began to fall in the U.S., until in 2001 only two cases were reported.

    Vile poison?

    They were delusional about being appointed by God to be his publishing corporation why shouldn't they be delusional about medical things I would highly suspect them to publish medical advice with a cognitive bias and steeped in black and white thinking.

    But that doesn't mean they won't give some good advice sometimes,, hey 2 times a day a stopped clock is telling the right time. Here is a sight that might shed some light on the idea:

    Many people worry that they may be at risk of developing dementia – particularly if they have a close relative with the condition. This factsheet explains what we know about the risks associated with developing different types of dementia, and gives some advice on the steps people can take to reduce their risk. There is ongoing research in this area.

    What do we mean by 'risk' and 'risk factor'?

    Risk is a person's chance of getting a disease over a certain period of time. We are all at risk of developing dementia, but some of us are more at risk than others. For example, an 80-year-old woman is more at risk of developing dementia in the next five years than a 30-year-old woman.

    A risk factor is anything that increases a person's chance of developing a condition. However, a person who has some of the risk factors for dementia will not necessarily go on to develop it, and avoiding risk factors does not guarantee that a person will be healthy – although it does make it more likely.

    What are the risk factors for dementia?

    Researchers have discovered some important factors that affect our risk of developing dementia. These include age and genetics, but also medical history, lifestyle and environmental factors. Our risk of developing dementia depends upon a combination of these risk factors. Some of them, such as our age or genes, cannot be controlled. Other risk factors can be controlled, for example by changing our lifestyle.

    The specific risk factors that have been associated with dementia are detailed below.


    Age is the most significant known risk factor for dementia. It is possible to develop dementia early in life, but the chances of developing it increase as we get older. It is rare to get dementia before 65 years of age. These earlier forms of dementia tend to be very different from late-onset. After the age of 65, the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease doubles approximately every five years. It is estimated that dementia affects one in 14 people over the age of 65 and one in six over the age of 80.

    Well, even a busted clock gets it right a couple of times a day...

    Rutherford was right about one thing.... he was an ass.

  • slimboyfat

    Good one heaven, you are referring to the comment Rutherford made about his false predictions for 1925, that he 'made an ass of himself'.

  • moshe

    Well, up until he died, Rutherford thought his Old Grand-Dad whiskey for good for what ails you.
