It’s Fluoride Awareness Week at, and Dr. Mercola spoke with Paul Connett, executive director of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), for the occasion. Connett has been instrumental in catalyzing the movement to remove fluoride — a neurotoxin — from water supplies in the U.S. as well as internationally, and he shared some exciting updates that have us moving closer to a post-water-fluoridation world.

“Irresponsible use of new and very advanced technologies by the military is life-threatening.

Engineered viruses can be used to edit genes in a target species, including in a heritable manner.

‘Insect Allies’ is a DARPA (U.S. military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects) program designed to genetically modify mature plants in a live environment by releasing insects infected with genetically modified viruses.

Some scientists, although on board with genetic modification in principle, are questioning DARPA’s motives and raising concerns.
