I agree about topical fluoride. Drinking it makes no sense. Those few seconds it's on the teeth doesn't offset all the potential negatives of running it through the whole body. And I agree there's a biological component to how the toxic elements are processed. If there wasn't, then everyone in a region would have the exact same amount of autism, but clearly that's not the case.
Interesting what you say about the CSF.
I wonder if it's related to people's lack of sleep? Sleeping is when your brain "takes out the trash" and clears out buildups, I've seen new research starting to show this.

I wouldn't be surprised. Its in the medical industry's best interest that it is not however, so I wonder how much counter research will come out. It certainly would have implications for attendings and residents.

It's ironic because medical people are often sleep deprived, despite all the scientific evidence available that shows it increases error rates significantly, often as much as being drunk.
Seems the medical profession often holds tradition over science, despite constantly saying it's not.

Yes. You will find that it has its own little culty fraternities too. Went to an ACP (american college of physicians) meeting, which is the second largest group representing the internal medicine specialty. You wouldn't believe the literal communist propaganda they are spewing. "Your labor does not belong to you, it belongs to the community..." with various justifications for the proposed elimination of the sovereign rights of the physicians it "represents." Made me want to start singing the soviet national anthem ;)

Yeah it's a bizarre culture that loves to self-flagellate but simultaneously sees itself as gods
