The pressure to industrialize and meet the demands of burgeoning population as well as threat of war has created a nightmarish situation where we either risk annihilation by a foreign power or poison ourselves to death, though it would seem that much of the harmful agents could be reduced.

In the latter half of the twentieth century, the world began to be confronted with an outbreak of "modern diseases" like cancer and autism. It has many asking what exactly is causing these diseases?

A slew of evidence has mounted proving that many people are consistently bombarded with toxins that are detrimental to their health, to an extent far beyond lead-based paint from China and toxins allowed to be in cigarettes, frequently paying a "toxic tax" as they live out their lives in the industrial and post-modern world.

Historically, as Joseph Borkin writes in his book titled "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben," fluoride was put into the water supplies of the prisoners in the Nazi concentration camps for the purpose of "Mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride... to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission."

Scientifically, like the one conducted by the Harvard School of Dental Health that was made available by the Environmental Workers Group (EWG), numerous studies have been done proving that there is a link with fluoridated water to diseases like cancer. As Bob Woffinden of the London Observer reports in his article titled "Fluoride water 'causes cancer,'" "EWG's cofounder Richard Wiles said, 'I've spent 20 years in public health, trying to protect kids from toxic exposure. Even with DDT, you don't have the consistently strong data that the compound can cause cancer as you now have with fluoride.'"

Apart from dental fluorosis, according to an about.com article by Mary Shomon published in 2001 titled "When Fluoridation Ends, So do Cavities," information collected from studies show that not only does the fluoride added to over 60 percent of municipal water supplies throughout America fail to reduce tooth decay, but it actually "increases the likelihood of rotten choppers," completely contradicting its purpose.

Fluoridealert.org details the various harmful health effects fluoride has. Among the effects detailed are dental fluorosis, various harmful effects on the brain - such as toxic effects on brain tissue, learning and memory functions, the central nervous system - and harmful effects on reproductive systems that include damaged sperm or reduced sperm count and fertility.

In an infowars.com article titled "Scientific Study Finds Fluoride Stories Factual" Paul Joseph Watson details various facts about fluoride and covers the Scientific American study that was published in 2008 titled "Second Thoughts on Fluoride" by Dan Fagin.

Fagin "concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid -- the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism." Fagin writes "Epidemiological studies and tests on lab animals suggest that high fluoride exposure increases the risk of bone fracture, especially in vulnerable populations such as the elderly and diabetics."

On May 1, 1999 Dr. J. William Hirzy, the EPA's union's Senior Vice-President, wrote an article titled "Why EPA's Headquarters Professionals' Union Opposes Fluoridation" that explains why the EPA has taken the stance it has against water fluoridation. He cites effects like "the lack of benefit to dental health from ingestion of fluoride and the hazards to human health from such ingestion. These hazards include acute toxic hazard, such as to people with impaired kidney function, as well as chronic toxic hazards of gene mutations, cancer, reproductive effects, neurotoxicity, bone pathology and dental fluorosis."

The extent to which many "pay" these toxic taxes goes far beyond public water supplies, extending to areas such as food as well as modern technology and science. Globenewswire.com reports that the main ingredient in Splenda, sucralose, is having harmful effects including: "reducing the amount of good bacteria in the intestines by 50 percent, increasing the pH level in the intestines, contributing to increases in body weight, and affecting the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) in the body in a way that crucial health-related drugs could be rejected."

City News reported that bisphenol-A is found in soft drink cans, "noting that experiments have found harmful effects in animals at BPA concentrations as low as 1,000 times below Health Canada's marker."

A report from The Independent also found BPA in other household products with famous brand names like Heinz. BPA was found in the membrane that lined Tins of Heinz baked beans, soup and beans, John West and Princes fish, and Napolina tomatoes..." as well as "tins of tuna and sardines."

In an article published by Press TV this past March titled "Too much cola causes male infertility: study" which reported on a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, that found that men drinking more than one quart of cola every day are at an increased risk of becoming infertile."

Repeatedly, vaccines are leaving behind victims infected with diseases that they cause and were designed to prevent. It was the case recently when, as reported by Elias Mbao in an article titled "Kenya: Trial HIV Vaccine Leaves 46 Infected," "a failed clinical trial HIV vaccine that left 46 Zambian women infected with the virus."

Apart from cases like these, vaccines have also been criticized for containing dangerous adjuvants, as I covered in the story titled "The Great Swine Flu Swindle," and toxins. Dawn Prate writes in an article for Natural News titled "The great thimerosal cover-up: Mercury, vaccines, autism and your child's health," that the substance added to vaccines known as thimerosal could be having detrimental effects on public health.

Prate writes, "thimerosal contains 49.6 percent mercury by weight and is metabolized or degraded into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate." Prate adds that "Studies indicate that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines. Mercury poisoning has been linked to cardiovascular disease, autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and many other nervous system conditions."

Numerous studies, like that reported by the Washington Post in an article titled "Study Finds High-Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Mercury," have found that most of the high fructose corn syrup that is found in almost everything today - from ketchup to soft drinks - contains mercury.

Nicholas Bakalar reported for the New York Times on how Fructose-sweetened foods increase "the risk of obesity and heart disease."

Apart from not being as green as they're made out to be, according to an article published by Information Liberation titled "Ban the Bulb? - 'If all 4 billion incandescent sockets were filled with CFLs we'd have nearly 50,000 pounds of mercury spread around every single US household'" by Luminous Maximus, each compact fluorescent lightbulb (CFL) contains up to four to five milligrams of mercury that "will eventually find its way to your favorite landfill and public drinking water supply. Knock over a table lamp and shatter a CFL in your house, and you have a toxic waste situation on your hands right in the living room, bedroom or dining room."

In an article published by infowars.com titled "Stock Up on Incandescent Lightbulbs: In Fact Buy a Lifetime Supply of Them," J. Speer-Williams writes, "There is enough mercury in each CFL bulb to contaminate 6,000 gallons of clean water." The cumulative of 'mercury taxes' then begin to shape up into a substantial toxic toll.

Thinking about inviting some friends over and grilling up some food for a nice barbecue with some corn on the cob? You might want to think twice.

An article published by the Huffington Post titled "Monsanto's GMO Corn Linked to Organ Failure, Study Reveals" reported on a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, which analyzed the effects of genetically modified (GM) foods on mammalian health, that found that agricultural giant Monsanto's GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats.

On Jan. 12, 2009 Green Peace published an article titled "No need for condoms - GE corn can do the job," reporting on a study from Austria that found that genetically engineered (GE) corn, like that from Monsanto, was a sterility agent.

eCanadaNow.com says scans from body scanners, that are soon to be in all airports, will be made mandatory by the TSA. These same body scanners have been proven to emit harmful radiation that kids are more susceptible to, according to an article titled "Approaching Epidemic: Brain Damage from Mobile Phone Radiation."

A NoWorldSystem.com article titled "Full Body Scanners to Fry Travelers With Radiation" the harmful health effects of the scanners are explained. "A leading U.S. expert on the biological effects of X-radiation is Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley..." who concluded "there is NO SAFE DOSE-LEVEL" and that "radiation from medical diagnostics and treatment is a causal co-factor in 50 percent of America's cancers and 60 percent of our ischemic heart disease." According to Technology Review, Teraheartz waves produced by these body scanners can "tear apart DNA."

The studies and survey conducted by Australian Health Research Institute project that two billion people may suffer from cell phone cancer by the year 2020. "Due to billions of times more in volume of electromagnetic radiation emitted by billions of mobile phones, internet, intranet and wireless communication data transmission almost one third of the world's population will be patients of ear, eye and brain cancer beside other major body disorders like heart ailments, impotency, migraine, and epilepsy."

A Natural News article titled "Cell Phones Cause Brain Cancer, Scientists Warn" covered a report issued by the International Electromagnetic Field Collaborative and endorsed by 43 scientists from 13 countries that reviewed the evidence linking cell phone use to brain tumors, making similar conclusions to that of the Australian Health Research institute.

In an article titled "Was Maurice Vellacott Right about abortion?" published Jan. 8, 2010 by the Globe and Mail, Gloria Galloway reported on a study "released last fall by the respected Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute in Seattle... that lists induced abortion as being 'associated with an increased risk for breast cancer.'"

Frequently, much of this information about these "toxic taxes" has trouble making it to the mainstream, mainly due to the fact that much of the mainstream media outlets have strong ties to the companies who would face scrutiny or possible lawsuits if the facts surrounding these issues were made public - God bless the internet. Reporters Steve Wilson and Jane Akre did an expose on tainted milk from injecting the cows with Monsanto's bovine growth hormone, and how it led to cancer. The two reporters were subsequently bribed, stonewalled, threatened with being fired - until finally they were - and had their story cut.

In an article titled "90 Percent of U.S. Infant Formula May Be Contaminated with Melamine; FDA Abruptly Declares Chemical Safe for Babies" Natural News' Mike Adams covers how trace amounts of melamine was found in the majority of infant formula.

According to an article posted by The Leader Post, ingredients used in gum may cause cancer. In an article titled "Aspartames Hidden Dangers" Dr. Joseph Mercola writes that aspartame, an artificial sweetener used in thousands of products which has taken on the new, more public friendly name of "AminoSweet" as of this past February after criticism it got from the public under its previous name, can lead to numerous ailments.

Like normal taxes, toxic taxes are for the most part unavoidable. The public barely knows half of the problem that is posed by "toxic taxes." If something is going to be done about the substantial toll these taxes are taking on the public's health, steps must first be taken to address the problems of special interests in government and in the news media.
