Fluoridation: Medicating our Water Part 1

There’s nothing like a glass of cool, clear water to quench one’s thirst. But the next time you or your child reaches for one, you might want to question whether that water is too toxic to drink. If your water is fluoridated, the answer may well be yes.

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 that we were led to believe was a safe and effective method of protecting teeth from decay is in fact a fraud.

Does topical fluoride really protect tooth enamel? Study suggests NO

A popular mantra in American dentistry claims that topical fluoride treatments help to protect teeth from cavities by forming a protective shield on the enamel of teeth. However, a new study published in the American Chemical Society (ACS) journal Langmuir has found that the “protective layer” created by fluoride is actually 100 times thinner than previously believed, which may render it practically useless as a cavity-preventing intervention.

Water fluoridation uses toxic chemicals from China, says new documentary, The Fluoride Deception

Water fluoridation in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia is achieved through the purchase of heavily contaminated toxic waste chemicals from China which are then labeled “fluoride” and dumped into public water supplies in local cities and towns. That’s the conclusion of a striking new mini documentary released today by the Consumer Wellness Center (http://www.consumerwellness.org/). The video is now available for viewing on NaturalNews.TV: http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=42652E035A1B1BAAAE1F340B54694975 (more…)

Does flouride really fight cavities

A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed. This raises questions about how this renowned cavity-fighter really works.

It has long been believed that fluoride changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a more-decay resistant material called fluorapatite. But the new research found that the fluorapatite layer formed in this way is only 6 nanometers thick — meaning it would take almost 10,000 such layers to span the width of a human hair. According to Science Daily:

“The scientists question whether a layer so thin, which is quickly worn away by ordinary chewing, really can shield teeth from decay”.

Another new study shows that exposure to fluoride may lower children’s intelligence.  In addition to toothpaste, fluoride is added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies. PR Newswire reports:

“About 28 percent of the children in the low-fluoride area scored as bright, normal or higher intelligence compared to only 8 percent in the ‘high’ fluoride area … in the high-fluoride city, 15 percent had scores indicating mental retardation and only 6 percent in the low-fluoride city.”

Flouride depletes iodine in the body, causing hypothyroidism and immune deficiency

Fluoride is getting a lot of bad press these days, and for good reason: it is a toxic molecule that wreaks extensive, often irreversible, havoc on the body. The thyroid is particularly affected by fluoride exposure because its store of iodine is depleted. Iodine deficiency depresses the thyroid’s metabolic and immune functions, resulting in hypothyroidism and lowered immunity.

Cancer in your drinking water?

During the Vietnam War, autopsies performed on young American soldiers killed in combat left coroners scratching their heads. When examined, these soldiers looked like booze-guzzling, cigarette-smoking, overweight couch potatoes in their 70s…not like 20-year-old fighting machines.

Thick, sticky cholesterol plaques filled their arteries. Some the men had total or partial blockages of one or more arteries. Some even had massive cholesterol lesions on their hearts.

It’s not a stretch to say…if these men hadn’t died in combat…they would have died of a stroke or heart attack. So how’d they get so sick? Was it their diet? Did they smoke too much? Did they inhale Agent Orange? (more…)

Fluoridation: The scam of the century

This scam starts as follows: the CDC (Centers For Deceit Control and Procrastination) in their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of August 17, 2001/Vol 50/ No. RR-14 entitled “Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental Caries in the United States, says on page 4, 5th paragraph, “that fluoride’s predominant effect is after the tooth comes into the mouth and on the surface of the tooth”.

The question posed to the CDC, the EPA, and the Public Health officials of “why then do we have to ingest it?” NEVER gets answered.

Flouride not safe, will this ever end?

Did you know that for the past 70 years you’ve been drinking the most toxic chemical found in nature?

You can’t smell it…you can’t taste it…and you probably have long-since forgotten that this dangerous substance was ever added to our water supply. But the fact is that the EPA started adding this toxic element to public drinking water in the 1940s. Ironically, the goal was to protect children.

This stuff is the equivalent of ingestible gasoline. In fact, it’s probably even far worse than petrol. Yet for all these years, it’s been heralded as “good for you.” (more…)

Let the tooth be know

I’d like to talk about a toxin that you’re probably exposed to every day. In fact, because we’ve all been completely brainwashed, most people think this toxin is actually good for them. This toxin is more poisonous than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic, and yet, chances are, your city is not only allowing this toxin to be in your tap water, they’re actually dumping this poisonous waste product in and then charging you for it! If you haven’t already guessed, the toxin I’m talking about is fluoride.

Fluoride is not a vitamin or a nutrient of any sort, and it’s not good for your teeth. In fact, it makes teeth and bones brittle, causes dental fluorosis (white mottling of the enamel), and can even cause bone cancer. It also causes neurological problems, learning disabilities, lowered I.Q., increased risk of hip fracture, hypothyroidism, and more. (more…)

Toxic Teeth: The Truth About Dental Amalgams

Fluoride is not a healthful nutrient, but rather is a toxic waste product. It’s more toxic than lead and almost as toxic as arsenic, and yet we actually add this poison to our water under the guise that it helps prevent cavities, when in reality it causes teeth to weaken and can even lead to bone cancer. This toxic waste product also shows up in most toothpastes and is promoted by most dentists, who also offer fluoride treatments. Now, I’d like to discuss another tooth-related toxin. (more…)
