There’s nothing like a glass of cool, clear water to quench your thirst. But the next time you turn on the tap, you might want to question whether that water is in fact, too toxic to drink. If your water is fluoridated, the answer is likely “YES.” Despite the fact that health “authorities” declare that it’s “safe” and “natural,” nothing could be further from the truth.
For decades, we have been told a lie, a lie that has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans and the weakening of the immune systems of tens of millions more. This lie is called fluoridation. A process we were led to believe was a safe and effective method of protecting teeth from decay is in fact a fraud. In the words of Dr. Robert Carton, former scientist for the EPA, “Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time.”
The “Spin Machine” At Work
In the 1920s, aluminum manufacturing, due largely to the thriving canning industry, was booming. But it was also a big producer of toxic fluoride waste. The biggest dilemma was the cost to safely dispose of this hazardous waste, since it was extremely expensive. The industry had been marketing and selling their toxic waste (sodium fluoride) as an insecticide and rat poison, but they wanted a much larger market …humans. However, they had a minor roadblock.
In the October 1, 1944 Journal of the American Dental Association, the ADA warned that “the potentialities for harm (from fluoridation) far outweigh those for the good.” But in 1947, Oscar R. Ewing (a long-time ALCOA lawyer) was appointed head of the Federal Security Agency, a position that placed him in charge of the US Public Health Service. Under Ewing, a national water fluoridation campaign began.
The public relations strategist for the water fluoridation campaign was none other than Sigmund Freud’s nephew Edwin L. Bernays, known as the “Father of Spin.” Bernays pioneered the application of Freud’s theories to advertising and government “half-truths.” In his book Propaganda, Bernays argued that scientific manipulation of public opinion is the key. He stated, “A relatively small number of persons pull the wires which control the public mind.” The government’s fluoridation campaign was one of his most enduring successes.
Bernays’ techniques were simple. Pretend there is some favorable research by using phrases like “Numerous studies have shown…” or “Research has proven…” or “Scientific investigators have found…” but then never really cite anything. Say it long enough and loud enough, and eventually people will believe it. If anyone doubts or questions the lies, attack their character and/or their intellect.
But What About The “Studies”?
But weren’t there “scientific studies” that proved fluoride is safe? In the 1940s, scientists supposedly noted that people had better overall dental health – primarily fewer cavities – if they lived in areas where higher levels of fluorine occurred naturally. Since that time, the “studies” have come into question and there are serious concerns that much of the data was merely fabricated by scientists who had ties to companies that had a vested interest in selling fluoride. The fabrication of data in scientific studies is nothing new, especially when it comes to health. There are a number of companies who are designed to benefit from the poor health of the public.
Contrary to popular opinion, fluoride doesn’t stop tooth decay at all. Scientific studies actually prove that fluoride is neurotoxic and causes birth defects, and osteoporosis. Fluoride also damages the immune, digestive, and respiratory systems as well as the kidneys, liver, and brain and can lead to learning disabilities, including dyslexia, ADHD and autism.
In 2012, Harvard researchers reported that 26 of the 27 studies they reviewed found that childhood IQ decreased with increased fluoride concentrations. A 2006 report from the National Academy of Sciences reviewed hundreds of studies linking fluoridated drinking water to neurological damage, thyroid disorders, and … yes …. cancer.
In 1955, the New England Journal of Medicine reported a 400% increase in the number of thyroid cancer cases in the years after San Francisco’s water began to be fluoridated. In 1977, Congress instructed the U.S. Public Health Service to conduct animal studies to determine whether or not fluoride causes cancer. After analyzing the study results in rats, it was found that animals who drank fluoridated water showed an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous cells, developed a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma, and showed an increased in thyroid follicular cell tumors.
The most significant finding was the occurrence of an extremely rare form of liver cancer, hepatocholangiocarcinoma in fluoride-treated male and female rats. Also in 1977, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute and Dr. John Yiamouyiannis. Despite the findings occurring in 1977, they were not reluctantly released until 1989.
In 2006, at Harvard University, researchers identified a link between fluoride and osteosarcoma. The study, led by Dr. Elise Bassin and published online in Cancer Causes and Control (the official journal of the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention), found a strong link between fluoridated drinking water and osteocarcoma, a rare and often fatal bone cancer, in boys. The study confirms studies by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the New Jersey health department that also found increased rates of bone cancer in boys who drank fluoridated tap water. The findings confirmed those of a prior government study back in 1990 that involved fluoride-treated rats.
But There’s More…
Once inside your body, fluoride destroys your enzymes by changing their shape. Your body depends on thousands of enzymes to perform numerous cell reactions. Without enzymes, we would all be dead. Enzymes are sort of like a key that fits the locks inside your cells. However, once fluoride destroys the shape of the enzyme “key,” it no longer fits the lock and your body no longer recognizes the enzymes. These damaged enzymes can lead to collagen breakdown, DNA damage, tissue damage, and immune suppression.
In early 2010, two separate stories out of India reveal that children are being blinded and crippled partly as a result of fluoride being artificially added to their drinking water. In the Indian village of Gaudiyan, well over half of the population has bone deformities, making them physically handicapped. Children are born normally, but after they start drinking the fluoridated water, they begin to develop crippling defects in their hands and feet.
On April 12, 2010, Time Magazine listed fluoride as one of the “Top Ten Common Household Toxins” and described fluoride as both “neurotoxic and potentially tumorigenic if swallowed.”Truth be told, in almost every country in the world (including the USA), it’s against the law to “mass medicate” an entire population with a substance that everyone admits is toxic.
The fact that fluorides accumulate in the body is the reason that US law requires the Surgeon General to set a “maximum contaminant level” (MCL) for fluoride content in public water supplies as determined by the EPA. It boggles my mind that thousands of brainwashed dentists proudly proclaim fluoride to be the “wonder nutrient” that prevents cavities and promotes healthy teeth and gums. Let me ask you a question. How can a toxic waste product and a cumulative toxin be described as a “nutrient?”
Unfortunately, if you are a person who has the pleasure of living in a country in which English is the primary language, such as the United States, Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia or Canada, there is an overwhelming possibility that water fluoridation is common, as a part of an executive decision. This means that a decision has been made concerning your health without involving you in the process.
Out of the nearly 320 million people living in the U.S., approximately 72% of them are consuming fluoridated water on a consistent basis. According to the CDC, all 50 states add fluoride to their water supply.
What Can You Do?
Reverse osmosis is considered by most to be effective at removing fluoride from water. Fluoride salts tend to replace the iodine that thyroid glands need to function. Supplementing with food-grade iodine is vital. Supplementing with a high ratio of magnesium to calcium provides minerals that can help remove fluoride. Also, vitamin K2, extracted from nattokinase provides a defense against fluoride calcification in soft tissue organs such as the arteries and brain.
Oh yes, one more thing you can do is stop using fluoridated toothpaste. Have you ever read the labels? I suggest that you do so. In 1997, the FDA ordered toothpaste manufacturers to add a poison warning on all fluoride toothpastes sold in the U.S. The warning says to keep away from children. I wonder why. Perhaps it is because if an entire tube of toothpaste were ingested by a small child, the dosage would likely be fatal!
In early 2010, there was a huge volcanic eruption in Iceland. Animals in southern Iceland were at risk of fluoride poisoning if they inhaled or ingested the ash from the eruption. Fluoride poisoning can lead to internal bleeding, long-term bone damage, and tooth loss. According to BBC News (April 19, 2010): “The fluoride in the ash creates acid in the animals’ stomachs, corroding the intestines and causing hemorrhages. It also binds with calcium in the bloodstream and after heavy exposure over a period of days makes bones frail, even causing teeth to crumble.” Most folks never “connect the dots” between the tragic poisoning of these animals due to a natural event, and the poisoning of human beings through excessive fluoride exposure each and every day.
There are more than 500 peer reviewed studies documenting adverse effects of fluoride ranging from cancer to brain damage. And yet, municipalities throughout the USA actually purchase this product and then drip it into the public water supply. Dr. Charles G. Heyd, former President of the AMA, declares, “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 range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable.”
