Why has poisonous fluoride been added to our drinking water in this country for over 50 years? Numerous scientific studies have found that the form of fluoride added to almost all our water supplies is more toxic than the type added to toothpaste. Our drinkable water contains lead, arsenic and other heavy metals as well. What is amazing, however, is the fact that public health policy in this nation has allowed water fluoridation to continue without having solid scientific proof that its benefit is greater than its danger.
The basic chemical substances used to fluoridate drinkable water are known as
silicofluorides. They are not pharmaceutical-grade fluoride products. On the contrary, they are unprocessed industrial by-products of the phosphate fertilizer industry. Since these are not going to go through any kind of filtration process, they can consist of even more arsenic than any other water treatment chemical substance.
The World Health Organization even confirmed a recent striking drop in cavities in practically all countries including countries not making use of fluoride in their drinking water. Any time fluoridation of water supplies is ceased, cavities never increase as a result.
Despite the fact that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control once hailed water fluoridation as being one of the top ten public health achievements of the twentieth century, at least 97 percent of western Europe does not fluoridate its water supply. So why is it still in most of
the drinking water that we have coming through the plumbing in American homes and businesses?
Scientific Studies and Expert Opinions
The fluoride put to use in drinking water fluoridation does not have FDA approval and they actually consider it to be an “unapproved drug”. In 1997 the Food and Drug Administration toughened the warning on every toothpaste tube to read, If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a poison-control center right away. Fluoride is regarded as being a poison. Moreover, it has long been used to make rodenticides and pesticides to exterminate pests such as rats and insects.
On April 12, 2010, Time magazine listed fluoride as one of the Top Ten Common Household Toxins and even described fluoride as both neurotoxic and potentially tumorigenic if swallowed.
In the most exhaustive study ever executed on the dental health of American youngsters from 1986-87, it was revealed that there was an amazing decrease in cavities in the prior ten years of fluoridated drinking water. The most astonishing thing, however, was that this exact same study also noticed that there was a lot less deviation than anticipated between
regions with and without fluoridated water. So fluoride in our water was not really the cause of the decline in cavities, although they were sure trying to make us think it was.
Dr. Arvid Carlsson, a Nobel prize winner in medicine in 2000, stressed the fact that water fluoridation goes against every one of basic principles of pharmacology because it only works topically on teeth, not by oral ingestion. He came to the conclusion that drinking
fluoride was enormously dangerous to the human body, especially over a prolonged period of time.
In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) advised that parents ought to avoid giving babies fluoridated drinking water.
Research workers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang on July 20, 2012 for the first time grouped together 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride could negatively affect mental development in children and lower IQ. They are now also finding that it increases harmful lead absorption within the body.
The recent (2006) National Research Council report on the toxicology of fluoride in drinkable water admits it is an endocrine disruptor.
Robert Carlton, Ph. D., who was a U. S. EPA scientist, declared in 1992 that “fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century”.
Dangers of Fluoride to the Human Body
It is known to reduce appropriate thyroid performance and thyroid hormone production which affects intelligence. It can increase the possibilities of thyroid disease.
It collects in the human brain (specifically, in the framework of the pineal gland) more than it builds up in our bones or even teeth. It is also a recognized neurotoxicant that
might cause brain, blood and bone disorders in humans.
Fluoride exposure impedes the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone contributing to more likely bone fractures and arthritis. This collagen
breakdown also has an effect on our tendons, muscles, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidneys and trachea. It causes premature aging of the human body.
Part of the problem is the fact that it is an accumulative toxin. Over time, it might bring on significant health issues which are not immediately linked to fluoride over-exposure. Longer term studies are now beginning to discover that it can increase the rate of tumor and cancer growth possibly even resulting in things such as bone cancer.
Fluoride inhibits the immune system. As little as 0.2 ppm fluoride will stimulate super-oxide production in resting white blood cells. It decreases the circulation of white blood cells by 70 percent, thereby decreasing their capacity to connect with their target and overcome disease with antibodies. The influence to the human disease fighting capability can range from a cold that wont go away to a higher risk of cancer or other infectious conditions.
Fluoride toxicity harms sperm and promotes reduced fertility in many animal species studied. In can even impact human birth rates. A U.S. epidemiological study verified
increased rates of infertility among couples residing in places with 3 ppm or more fluoride in the drinking water (Freni 1994). Two studies demonstrated a reduced measure of circulating testosterone in men residing in higher fluoride locations (Susheela 1996; Barot 1998).
The very first example of fluoridated water on the earth was employed in Germanys Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo’s main intent behind mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force people in their concentration camps into calm submission.
Dr. Dean Burkin 1937 co-founded the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and headed its cytochemistry department for more than 30 years. A taped interview of him has since been obtained where he equated water fluoridation to public murder.
The hazardous repercussions of fluoride have been acknowledged by established medical institutions for more than half a century even dating back to 1943. Studies relating fluoride to cancer were government-ordered but were quickly covered up when fluoride was found to be linked to remarkable increases in cancer.
In the 1950s, the Soviets actually admitted to using fluoride in the drinking water supplies
of their gulag concentration camps in Siberia to help make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.
It really is incredible that the dangerous effects of fluoride have been known for so long. Yet, we are still putting it in our water simply because someone decided it would help prevent cavities. Someone with a big hole in their head thought that the best way to fix
holes in everyone’s teeth would for everyone to drink poison.
More and more people are beginning to recognize the problem that water fluoridation causes to humanity. I encourage everyone to become more informed and to take action now to have this dangerous chemical removed from all our water supplies accross the nation. It is killing our children and affecting everyone in ways that are just horrendous. We may not even see the serious side-effects that it will reveal into the future.
Update: (5/23/2013) Voters in Portland, yesterday, with 60% of the voters saying NO! to the practice of adding toxic fluoride chemicals to the water.
