Dr. R. Swinburne Clymer was in many ways a man ahead of his
time, and most certainly controversial.
He was attacked by the medical
establishment for connecting diet with disease and mental health in
his 1917 book Dietetics. Dr. Clymer received his medical degree in
1902 from the College of Medicine and Surgery in Chicago and began
Accusations of fraud surround Dr.
Clymer’s career, including this 1923 edition of the Journal of
the American Medical Association which claims that,
“Our records fail to show that this
man was ever regularly graduated by any reputable medical
What Clymer had to say more than likely
had something to do with the denouncement that he received from the
Though Dr. Clymer may be surrounded with controversy, his 1958 book
Your Health and Sanity in the Age of Treason
exposes toxic food additives and fluoride with documentation - the
majority of which are mainstream scientific studies - that can be
verified many times over.
What makes this book unique is the fact
that Dr. Clymer was one of the first to point out that statements by
the elite indicated that these toxins were to be deliberately
“…for the mental deterioration and
moral debasement of the mass…”
Dr. Clymer introduces
with a stark warning for the future
The book is appropriately subtitled,
“Food and Liquids Used as a Medium
in Deliberately and Carefully Planned Methods Developed by the
Vicious Element of Humanity, for the Mental Deterioration and
Moral Debasement of the Mass, as a Means Toward Their
Dr. Clymer introduces readers with a
stark warning for the future, writing,
“Imagine yourself if you can,
becoming conscious that you are gradually losing your manhood;
that your mind is rapidly deteriorating so that you are no
longer capable of thinking clearly; unable to plan your future
Your resistance is becoming so
weakened that you are no longer master of yourself. In short,
you are rapidly developing into a moron, a robot, a zombie,
readily subject to the dictates of others…”
Bertrand Russell’s 1953 book The
Impact of Science on Society is cited by Clymer as one example
of the elite’s desire to dominate the masses.
Russell stated that under scientific
“Diet, injections, and injunctions
will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of
character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider
desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will
become psychologically impossible.”
Diethylstilbestrol - Endocrine Disruption
Dr. Clymer identified the synthetic estrogen
developed in 1938 - as a means to achieve the aims of the elite.
Clymer explains that some of the toxic
additives discussed in the book may not have been employed for the
express purpose outlined by the elite, but,
“…they served their purpose
Dr. Clymer elaborates,
“The employment of Stilbestrol by
the laity with absolutely no knowledge of the dangerous agent
they are employing, in conditioning chickens and meats, is mass
medication without license, with a dangerous toxic drug that may
have universal disastrous results on all who eat such
This is especially true as it
concerns children, youths, young women and men, resulting as it
may, in their sterilization or cancer - something fervently
hoped for by the enemies of mankind.”
Because Stilbestrol is a synthetic
“…the natural protective activity of
the bodily organs are ineffective in prohibiting harmful
results. Natural Estrogen, on the other hand, is decomposed, and
any of its possible harmful effects may be more or less made
ineffective,” writes Dr. Clymer.
Stilbestrol was used as a treatment for
various types of cancer and menopausal symptoms, but as Dr. Clymer
“Physicians versed in the use of
Endocrines agree generally that Stilbestrol is a dangerous drug
in all except experienced hands.”
Dr. E. Malcolm Stokes, in an article
published in the Western Journal of Surgery, Obstetrics and
Gynecology, September 1948, wrote:
“Single large doses of [natural]
estrogen substances are quickly excreted… long continued,
repeated administration in relatively small doses [as in daily
consumption of meats permeated with stilbestrol] may intensify
tissue response to the hormone.”
Dr. Clymer warns that such chemicals are
to feminize men,
“Every vigilant human being should
be concerned with several important factors involved: The
methods or means by which it is possible to change man’s
characteristics as easily as the animal’s.
Man is a warrior by nature, the
protector of his family, and his own rights and privileges; an
individual, a free man…
A being who has wrought great things
and who, if not interfered with, will do even greater things.
This being is to be turned into a lesser female; unable, even
unwilling, to defend himself, much less his family or country;
becoming a slave…”
Dr. Clymer’s concerns over Stilbestrol
have been vindicated over time, as the chemical has been phased out
of use as a growth hormone in the late 1970′s due to concerns over
Additionally, in 1971 the FDA advised
physicians to stop prescribing Stilbestrol to pregnant women due to
high cancer risk.
The drug is no longer being manufactured
as of 1997.
Today there are continuing concerns as substantial levels of
Bisphenol A (BPA) have been found in a large percentage of the
western world’s population.
Like Diethylstilbestrol, BPA is a
synthetic estrogen with similar to identical effects on the human
body. BPA is perhaps a much larger threat due to the fact that
unlike Stilbestrol - which was primarily consumed in meats - it is
found in many household products, including the food we eat.
A recent study from the Canadian Health
Measures Survey found that over 90% of Canadians have detectable
concentrations of BPA in their urine.
Studies conducted by the CDC
found Bisphenol A
in the urine of 95% of adults sampled in 1988-1994
93% of children and adults tested in 2003-04. Other studies
have shown that Bisphenol A
causes feminization of males and reduced
As Dr. Frederick vom Saal states in this local Fox News report,
levels of BPA below a trillionth of a gram have been found to alter
cell function and growth.
Additionally, BPA was found to feed
cancer cell growth and impact the reproductive system of rats.
another danger to human health and well being identified by Dr.
Clymer is Sodium Fluoride.
Fluoride, we are told, is placed in the
water supply to help protect our teeth from decay. Today some are
proposing that fluoride and other forms of mass medication
serve as a means of “Cognitive Enhancement.”
In his expose of fluoride, Dr. Clymer
quotes Rene M. Vale, a former Communist and party worker in
her book Red Court, published in 1952.
“In regions of the country where
resistance was most apt to develop we saw to it that virus
diseases struck, and when antibiotics threatened our program, we
devised other means of vitiating the populace. Fluoridation of
drinking water was found to be about the most successful…”
Dr. Charles E. Perkins, who Dr.
R. Swinburne Clymer was in personal contact with, was,
“… sent by the United States
Government to help take charge of
the I.G. Farben chemical
plants in Germany at the end of the second world war. What
follows are quotations from a letter which Mr. Perkins wrote to
the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, dated October 2, 1954.”
Mr. Perkins letter states,
“The German chemists worked out a
very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass control which was
submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff.
This plan was to control the
population in any given area through mass medication of drinking
water supplies. By this method they could control the population
of whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would
produce sterility in women and so on. In this scheme of mass
control, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place.
“We are told by the ideologists who are advocating the
fluorination of water supplies in this country that their
purpose is to reduce the incidence of tooth decay in children,
and it is the plausibility of this excuse, plus the prominence
of those who are responsible for the present spread of
artificial water fluoridation in this country.
“However - and I want to make this very definite and very
positive - the real reason behind fluorination is not to benefit
children’s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many
ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper and
far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation
is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and
control and loss of liberty…
“I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an
official of the great Farben chemical industries and was also
prominent in the Nazi movement at the time…”
Dr. Clymer additionally cites a 1956
letter written by the then New York Water Commissioner Arthur C.
Ford (available in full here).
In the letter, Ford speaks out openly
against fluorides as,
“…extremely toxic substances…”
“We are aware that the fluorides are
extremely toxic substances, and evidence exists to show that
even at the recommended level of one part per million of
fluoride in drinking water, people in fluoridated communities
have been harmed.
We know of reputable, independent medical authorities throughout
the United States and in the local area who have found evidence
of fluoride damage to persons living in fluoridated communities.
These medical authorities disagree
with the fluoride hypothesis, and they have raised grave
questions with respect to the safety of the procedure for an
entire population which includes the young, the old, the
susceptible and the infirm as well as the healthy.
Fluoride, besides being a toxic substance, is not all excreted
when taken into the system, a significant percentage remaining
cumulatively. Fluoridation of the drinking water at any level of
concentration is a very indiscriminate procedure, since children
drink widely varying amounts of water…”
Australian television recently reported
on fluoride’s harmful impact on human health and efforts to expand
water fluoridation on the continent.
As sperm counts
continue to fall world-wide and GMO crops
into the environment, exposure to untold numbers of environmental
toxins like BPA is a continuing threat.
In the United States, several EPA
have denounced fluoridation, calling for a national
moratorium on the fluoridation of water supplies. Citizens in
Wichita Kansas are becoming active in raising awareness of fluoride,
drawing attacks from the local media. Awareness of these issues is
essential not just for those living today, but for future
Open admissions of the intent to
chemically alter humanity should leave us with nothing but a sense
of duty to warn others of the grave threat that we face.
