Gum Disease and Vitamin D/Viewing: Smart Meter Documentary/Free Brain Test

Gum Disease and Vitamin D

The rate of diabetes is still on the rise with one study predicting that by 2050 the number of people under 20 with type 2 diabetes will increase by nearly 50 percent.

While some risk factors are genetic, more are lifestyle based (primarily dietary in nature). However, recent studies have found a new risk factor for type 2 diabetes, which links the disease to vitamin D deficiency and gum disease.

A 2015 study from India found that patients with gum disease (both those with and without type 2 diabetes) had low vitamin D levels. Researchers stated that the low levels of vitamin D “may be due to the diseases’ processes rather than low vitamin D acting as a cause for the disease.” Though they did note that the patients who had periodontitis showed a tendency toward prediabetes.

This study concluded that systemic inflammation in the body, as a response to gum disease, may lead to insulin resistance, and increase the risk of diabetes.

This study has been further confirmed by another from 2018. This study looked at health survey data from the U.S. which confirmed that those people with gum disease, along with low levels of vitamin D, had much higher odds of developing type 2 diabetes.

Given that vitamin D has both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects, and periodontitis is an inflammatory condition caused by oral microbes, the study concluded that while they were not convinced that vitamin D would prevent diabetes, they felt that having healthy vitamin D levels could at least help prevent gum disease.

That being said, many other studies have found a link between vitamin D deficiency and development of diabetes. Though none would suggest that vitamin D supplementation could reverse it, once developed, it appears that ensuring more than adequate levels of vitamin D can certainly help to prevent diabetes from developing.



With regards to periodontal disease, I have read that flossing our teeth regularly adds as many years to one’s life as regular smoking would take off. Flossing is that important because those microbes found in the teeth, are the same bacteria found in arterial plaque, leading to heart disease.



Therefore, take vitamin D regularly, and floss your teeth, and you can ward off both diabetes and heart disease.

Viewing: Smart Meter Documentary

The award-winning documentary “Take Back Your Power” has just been put up on youtube for free viewing. This documentary is focused on the many problems with “smart meters”, including increased utility bills, risk of house fires, facilitating in-home surveillance, and increasing vulnerability to hacking. And, of course, it covers the worst components of smart meters, which are the electrosmog and dirty electricity dangers, and the health problems these are causing.

As I discussed in a blog, years ago, corporate interests are well served by riding the “green” train. And, when things like the replacement of incandescent bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs are mandated by law, we are approaching fascism. Smart meters are another example of a nefarious agenda being sold as a step towards reducing global warming, even though these meters do not reduce energy consumption, nor help the environment.

Smart meters emit pulsed microwave radiation over 100,000 times a day, and each pulse is hundreds of times stronger than cell phone radiation. And, because smart meters are based on what is known as switch-mode power (like dimmer switches), they increase dirty electricity in the home. (This is a state where the household electrical wiring puts out a an increase electromagnetic field, sufficient to impact the health of those within the house. (Source)

Smart meters can cause many health issues that most people would never connect to their home, since they have been convinced by media and gov’t that these are safe devices.

Josh del Sol Beaulieu is the director of Take Back Your Power, and in 2017, he co-founded InPower Movement, a process using commercial liability to halt harmful technology such as ‘smart’ meters, 5G, and mandatory vaccinations.

If you are like me, you often ask yourself, where is my mind? Do I have mold in my brain? Joking aside, as my series of blogs on Alzheimer’s discussed, there is a strong link between mold and fungus in the brain, and advanced Alzheimer’s disease.

A friend (thanks Sarah B.) sent me a link to a company that has an online visual test, which can indicate if one does have fungus in the brain.

Their website provides visual contrast sensitivity (VCS) testing to individuals (and healthcare professionals) who suffer, or suspect they may suffer, from a health condition that affects contrast sensitivity.

Visual contrast sensitivity testing measures one’s ability to see details at low contrast levels, and is often used as a (nonspecific) test of neurological function.  A VCS test presents a series of images of decreasing contrast to the test subject, and records the contrast levels where patterns cannot be identified. The results of the test can then be used as an aid in the diagnosis of visual system dysfunction.

There are many things that can affect this ability to perceive contrast, including nutritional deficiencies, drug/medication use, exposure to neurotoxins and/or biotoxins, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), parasites, heavy metals (like mercury and lead), Lyme disease, and certain species of mold and the mycotoxins and microbial VOCs they produce.

As mentioned above, this test is considered nonspecific, thus VCS testing, by itself, is generally not diagnostic for any specific condition, including mold. However, a positive result may suggest the existence of a health-affecting clinical, or subclinical, condition, and indicate a need for more specific testing.

From their website:

“Currently, new individual/patient accounts receive one free test initially, though free results are limited to a positive/negative determination and raw test scores.  If you need a detailed results interpretation, and a printable/forwardable PDF, if you’d like to have your results forwarded to your referring healthcare provider, or if you want to test again, we request a small donation (though we’re happy to offer free services upon request to those experiencing illness-related financial difficulties).”  (CAD $12.50)
