Naturally fluoridated water comes in the form of calcium fluoride, it's calcium based and good for bones and teeth, while the chemically dumped poison is sodium fluoride or a derivative.
Our degree of contamination is directly proportional to the level of fluoridated water that we drink. If you drink a lot of water then you have more risk from fluoride than someone who doesn't. Like showers? Fluoridated water? Get the picture?
Let's for the moment ignore that sodium fluoride isn't naturally occurring and has long been recognized as one of the most toxic elements on earth, or that it's a by-product of aluminum manufacturing, used in atomic bomb production and manufacturing of high grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons. It's banned outright in France, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, Japan, China, The Netherlands and a growing number of informed US and Canadian cities.
Earning a Level 4 rating, compared to a Level 3 rating for Lead, with the Clinical Toxicity of Commercial Products Guide. It's also the reason your Fluoridated tooth paste comes with that nasty little warning label to call the poison control center in case you swallow any.
But can you also afford to ignore the profound work of a committed group of scientists, lawyers and professional employees at EPA? The EPA was alarmed with fluoride toxicy and professional ethics and reviewed toxicity data since 1985 and concurred that "the most recent toxicity data demonstrate to us a causative link between fluoride exposures and neurotoxicity, including diminished IQ in children, hyperactivity, genetic damage, bone pathology, increased hip fractures, and bone cancer in addition to dental fluorosisis." They voted unanimously to join forces with California Citizens for Safe Drinking to stop fluoridation and have recently reduced the "allowable" amounts.
The Journal of Brain Research conducted a 52 week study in 1998 to determine whether the effects of aluminum in the nervous system would enhance or inhibit bio availability. Their determination was that the impact on brain tissue was similar to pathological changes found in patients with Alzheimers and dementia, most remarkable was that the studies indicated that even the lowest doses of aluminum fluoride caused the greatest susceptibility to illness and incidence of mortality.
Dr Phyllis Mullenix, former head of Toxicology of Forsythe Dental Center in Boston, now a critic of fluoride, concluded that fluoride is a powerful central nervous system toxin aversely effecting the human brain.
Dr Roger Master, President of Foundation for Neuroscience and Society of Dartmouth University linked fluoride and lead in children suggesting fluoride enhanced the body's uptake in lead from environmental sources.
Evidence is overwhelming that fluoride is considered causative in hip fractures, arthritis, osteoporosis, neurological and cerebro-vascular disease, and as a bone seeking toxin destroys collagen in bones, tendons, muscles, skin, cartilage, lungs and kidneys.
How did fluoride become so popular you ask? Simplistically put, lies, slight of hand and money to be made. In 1920's and 1930's fluoride fell into negative public opinion, regulations and lawsuits against itss damages. To reverse public opinion and find an " acceptable source" (YOU) of disposing of a toxin, severe damage control was needed. At that time the Public Health Service fell under the jurisdiction of the treasury secretary. Andrew J Mellon was the treasury secretary from 1920 until 1931. He was also the founder and billionaire head of Aluminum Corporation of America (ALCOA).
In 1931 Public Health Service and ALCOA sponsored research and created self-serving "instant science" that claimed fluoride reduced cavities. During World War 11 Public Health Service pushed for mandatory fluoridation and miraculously transformed the image of a curse into a blessing, found a source to dispose of their toxic waste, and realized a substantial monetary gain by demanding that fluoride be dumped into the nations' water.
Mass medication and poisoning is evil, socialistic and in this case idiotic. Letss be accountable for individual choice of poisons, whether tobacco, alcohol or fluoride.
In point of fact, fluorine causes more human cancer death, and causes it faster, than any other chemical." -- Dean Burk, chief chemist emeritus at the U.S. National Cancer Institute
"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." - Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association.
"I would advise against fluoridation.. Side-effects cannot be excluded .. In Sweden, the emphasis nowadays is to keep the environment as clean as possible with regard to pharmacologically active and, thus, potentially toxic substances." - Dr. Arvid Carlsson, co-winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine (2000)
Fluoridation, mandated by governments and rejected by communities.
