RFK Jr. Speaks About , Past Health Incidents , Including Brain Parasite.

CNN reports that Robert F.

Kennedy Jr. offered his first public explanation of a medical abnormality he experienced in 2010, which he said was the result of a parasite that entered his brain and died.

.

While speaking on the podcast 'Pushing the Limits with Brian Shapiro,' Kennedy said the experience involved "brain fog" and "having trouble with word retrieval and short-term memory.".

According to the Independent presidential candidate, doctors initially told him they thought he had a tumor in his brain.

.

A second docotor revealed that "this is almost certainly a parasite that got into your brain … it’s a parasite that’s very common in India where I had done a lot of environmental work.”.

Stefanie Spear, a spokesperson for Kennedy’s campaign, said he had “traveled extensively in Africa, South America and Asia” while working as an environmental advocate.

When asked how the condition could impact his presidential bid, Spear said, “The issue was resolved more than 10 years ago and he is in robust physical and mental health.

Questioning Mr. Kennedy’s health is a hilarious suggestion, given his competition.".

In the same podcast, Kennedy detailed another experience he had with mercury poisoning, which he said occurred near the same time as the incident with the parisitic worm.

Kennedy said tests revealed "sky high" levels of mercury in he blood, forcing him to undergo chelation therapy to have the metals removed from his body.

At the same time, I was having my mercury tested, and I was getting all kinds of tests, and my mercury test came back sky high.

So, ten times what, you know, the EPA levels were for blood mercury, I think it was.

They were over ten times what– what anybody considered safe.

And I had that chelated out and all of that brain fog went away, Robert Kennedy Jr., via CNN.

CNN reports that Kennedy insisted that he has since made a full recovery from both health scares

US Water System May Be Vulnerable to Cyberattack by China, Russia and Iran

US Water System May Be , Vulnerable to Cyberattack, by China, Russia and Iran. CNBC reports that the United States water system has been the target of a series of cyberattacks over the past few years. . In response, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been forced to issue an alert warning that 70% of water systems do not comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act. According to the EPA, some have “alarming cybersecurity vulnerabilities,” including unchanged default passwords and former employees who retain access to vital systems. In February, the FBI issued a warning to Congress that Chinese hackers have embedded themselves into the U.S. cyber infrastructure. . Those hackers have targeted water treatment plants, the electrical grid, transportation systems and other vital infrastructure. Those hackers have targeted water treatment plants, the electrical grid, transportation systems and other vital infrastructure. Water is among the least mature in terms of security, Adam Isles, head of cybersecurity practice for Chertoff Group, via CNBC. Stuart Madnick, an MIT professor of engineering systems and co-founder of Cybersecurity at MIT Sloan, warns that an attack that shuts off water to the population is the main concern. We have demonstrated in our lab how operations, such as a water plant, could be shut down not just for hours or days, but for weeks, Adam Isles, head of cybersecurity practice for Chertoff Group, via CNBC. Recently, EPA Administrator Michael Regan and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan sent a letter to governors stressing the urgency of the threat. .

EPA's New Limits on PFAS in Drinking Water Could Be Upended by the Supreme Court [Video]

EPA's New Limits on PFAS in Drinking Water Could Be Upended by the Supreme Court

EPA's New Limits on PFAS , in Drinking Water Could Be , Upended by the Supreme Court. 'Newsweek' reports that the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case against new water rules put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). 'Newsweek' reports that the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case against new water rules put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In April, new national limits were placed on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances in the nation's drinking water, otherwise known as PFAS. . Also known as "forever chemicals," PFAS have been linked to a number of health concerns, including cancer. According to the EPA, of the 66,000 public drinking water systems impacted by the new limits, an estimated 6% to 10% will need to make updates to meet the new standards. According to San Francisco, the EPA's new "narrative" regulations fail to meet the Clean Water Act's requirement to lay out clear restrictions. The lawsuit headed to the Supreme Court accuses the EPA of setting vague rules without quantifiable standards. Rather than specify pollutant limits that tell the permitholder how much they need to control their discharges as required by the CWA, these prohibitions effectively tell permitholders nothing more than not to cause 'too much' pollution, Lawyers representing San Francisco, via 'Newsweek'. These generic water quality terms expose San Francisco and numerous permitholders nationwide to enforcement actions while failing to tell them how much they need to limit or treat their discharges to comply with the Act, Lawyers representing San Francisco, via 'Newsweek'. We simply want to know in advance what requirements apply to us, and we want the EPA to fulfil its duty under the Clean Water Act to determine those requirements. , Lawyers representing San Francisco, via 'Newsweek'. 'Newsweek' points out that the Supreme Court has sided against the EPA in the past, most recently in 2022 when it ruled 6-3 against the Biden administration's climate agenda. .

On May 20, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a countrywide alert urging water utilities to take immediate action to safeguard drinking water from cyberattacks. . The agency said that recent inspections indicate that 70% of water systems in America don't comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act, 'Newsweek' reports. . Some water utility systems have "critical cybersecurity vulnerabilities, such as default passwords that have not been updated and single logins that can easily be compromised.". Cyberattacks have the potential to disrupt water treatment and storage, damage equipment. and change chemical levels to dangerous amounts. In many cases, systems are not doing what they are supposed to be doing, which is to have completed a risk assessment of their vulnerabilities that includes cybersecurity and to make sure that plan is available and informing the way they do business. , EPA Deputy Administrator Janet McCabe, via press release. According to the EPA's warning, countries like China, Russia and Iran. have "disrupted some water systems with cyberattacks and may have embedded the capability to disable them in the future.". Drinking water and wastewater systems are an attractive target for cyberattacks because they are a lifeline critical infrastructure sector but often lack the resources and technical capacity to adopt rigorous cybersecurity practices, Michael S. Regan, EPA administrator, and White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, via March 18 letter to all 50 U.S. governors. The EPA is offering to train water utilities at no cost to correct some of the issues, . but other issues are more complex and costly, which many utilities companies aren't equipped for. . Certainly, cybersecurity is part of that, but that's never been their primary expertise. So, now you're asking a water utility to develop this whole new sort of department, Amy Hardberger, water expert at Texas Tech University, to AP
