To understand about author of 65 books William Jiang, MLS on fluoride, intelligence, and mental health we can see a snippet from one of his other books, A Historical Reader: The New York Times and Madness, 1851-1922

“America Facing Its Most Tragic Moment” by Dr. Carl Jung
“Whatever a man builds is likely to devour him, and the builder in America is in danger of being destroyed—but why should I call him names for that reason? He has to express himself in big buildings, in trusts, in systems, of which we in Europe have as yet only have the beginnings. We envy you. We have not learned to think in such great abstractions—and we are not in as great danger as you Americans.”
Carl Jung is talking about Americans as very forward thinking people, seemingly much more advanced than Europeans, putting Americans on a pedestal in this regard for our intelligence, social systems, architecture, trusts, and systems. Seemingly, according to Dr. Carl Jung, we Americans were the most advanced people in the world in 1912.
I ask you. What happened? Do we think of Americans in general as the most intelligent people in the world in 2017, a little over 100 years later? When I think of the great thinkers today, invariably I think of Europeans or Asians. What the hell happened?
America was known for its Engineers up until the 1920s at least. It had the best engineers and educational system in the world. What changed all that? Fluoridation of the water, maybe? In 1945 they first started fluoridating the water in Michigan. Let us get this sequence right. In 1912 we are on top of the heap as a group. In 1945 most of America’s water is fluoridated. Something changed. Riddle me this. Why are we drinking a neurotoxin? It is great for the general dental health, yes, we get that. It’s generally safe and well tolerated in adults. Sure. However, when this powerful neurotoxin can pass both the placenta and blood-brain barrier into helpless children in utero, you have the crux of the issue. Hey, do not take my word for all of this. Check out this article on CNN, hidden in plain sight. By the way, most of Europe and most of Asia do not put fluoride in their water.
Mental Health and Modernity
ALL of my books deal with mental, physical, or emotional health in some way. Why do I talk about mental health in a brief article about IQ and Fluoridation? In a nutshell, my contention is that it turns out in this modern age of fewer jobs, more fast foods, and overdosing on electronic technologies en masse, as well as drug use and abuse, we have lost much in terms of our mental and physical health. Indeed, due to our continuous environmental stressors, we are not only more isolated while damaging our own health but the also the health of our progeny, through insults to the epigenome, and epitranscriptome and eventually to the genome and our very evolution as a species. I am waiting on a possible foreword from arguably the most powerful psychiatrist in history Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman for my upcoming book The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th Edition. The good news is that you be proactive and protect your mental health, naturally! Your mom will thank you, and so will your kids, even the unborn ones! In the meantime, I invite you to check out my author blog for more intriguing writing and interesting books! Please share for the children!
