Found a great article regarding fluoride in our drinking water:
You may think that fluoride is put in your drinking water to save your teeth, but guess again!
Actual studies, like the one by the National Institute of Dental Research on 39,000 children show no significant difference in number of cavities on those who were drank fluoridated water vs those who didn’t. In fact fluoride can give you “dental fluorosis” a sophisticated name for brown, pitted teeth.
ANOTHER FACT: In 1954, the Christian Science Monitor surveyed all 81 Nobel Prize winners in the fields of chemistry, medicine and physiology on their opinion regarding water fluoridation. Seventy-nine percent failed to endorse water fluoridation.
Fluoride Poisoning and Cancer
Fluoride can give you a lot of other things too, namely cancer.
Qualified scientists in numerous laboratory tests have found that fluoride in water, even 1.0 part per million, (the amount typically used in water fluoridation) is a carcinogen and mutagen.
Fluoridation of water causes 20,000 plus cancer deaths per year in the U.S.
Other Poisoning Maladies
If you are pregnant, fluoride might increase your chances of having a child with Down’s syndrome.
If you are a senior, it will make you more likely to have hip fractures.
If you are a virile guy it could make you infertile as it tends, according to a study in India, to cause testicular damage.
A little fluoride goes a long way, because it accumulates in the bones, teeth, in food chain and in the environment.
Fluoride water additives often contain other highly toxic materials
The fluoride that is most likely added to your water supply is really hydrofluorisilicic acid in a hazardous waste liquor” which contains also lead, mercury, beryllium, radioactive material, arsenic and other pollutants.
“Fluoridation is an attempt by industry to camouflage their deadliest pollutant, with government officials and Madison Avenue advertisers beating the drums. The fluoridation empire is like a castle built on quicksand.” says Gladys Caldwell, author, “Fluoridation and Truth Decay”, 1974.
As far back as April of 1950 in the Journal of the American Dental Association, Vol 40:440, a study by G. J. Cox and H.C. Hodge, “Toxicity of Fluorides in Relation to Their Use in Dentistry”, made it clear that fluoride is a poison: “Some of the basic and necessary metabolic processes in the cell are stopped by concentrations of fluorides such as are found in acute poisoning. These changes are comparable to those seen in high-grade anoxia (lack of sufficient oxygen in the body tissues) and are the basis for describing fluorides as general protoplasmic poisons.” Fluorides have also been used historically for mind control:
Charles Elliot Perkins, research scientist sent by the US government to take charge of I.G. Farben chemical plants in Germany discovered that ” The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination, control and loss of liberty.” In his report to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research in October of 1954, he said, “Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him.”
This is why Fluorides are a key ingredient of Prozac and many other psychiatric drugs. Prozac, scientific name Fluoxetine, is 94% fluoride.
Toxicologist Phyllis Mullenix demonstrated in the mid-1980’s that rats given fluoride as youngsters or adults became passive, underactive and lethargic.
Who is behind the push to get fluoride in our water systems?
Special interest groups who want a convenient way to dump an industrial waste product.
And who wants to ingest an industrial waste product? Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association said: “I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long- term basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable.”
“I say this in all earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorides. Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person.” Charles Elliot Perkins,
