New mini documentary exposes the truth about fluoride: Industrial waste chemicals passed off as medicine

Water fluoridation around the world is achieved through the purchase of chemically 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 shocking new mini documentary released today by the Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org).

The video is now available for viewing on NaturalNews.TV:

Fluoridation makes us stupid and unhealthy

A recent Chinese study concluded that low dose sodium fluoride in drinking water diminishes IQ, especially among children. This is the twenty-fourth such international study with the same conclusion. Sodium fluoride has also been linked to reduced fertility and lower sperm counts.

Other health issues arise from the basic function of sodium fluoride’s ability to block thyroid production. It was once used to inhibit hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). So if your thyroid is normal, it will be reduced to hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid), which leads to a plethora of health problems.

Sodium fluoride is accumulated and stored by bone matter, displacing calcium and weakening bones. The pineal gland sucks up even more of the stuff that is being put in 70% of the USA water supply while independent scientific research and public protest is disregarded.

Protect yourself from increasing radiation levels in drinking water

Growing concerns about radiation from Fukushima has led many Americans to take precautionary actions to protect themselves against rising radiation levels. Radiation has now been detected in the drinking water of over a dozen U.S. cities. As the radiation levels continue to rise it will become increasingly important to find a pure source of drinking water.

Rain water tests in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Washington have all shown elevated levels of radioiodine-131. Radiation in rain water can seep into ground water and contaminate sources used for drinking. EPA officials claim that radiation levels are still too low to affect human health at this time. Regardless of current radiation levels, it is wise to take precautions to protect your family against increasing radiation in drinking water.

Don’t Feed Babies Fluoridated Water say NYS Health Officials

Babies fed infant formula mixed with New York’s fluoridated tap water risk developing enamel fluorosis or discolored teeth, according to the New York State Department of Health (1).  Bureaucrats fail to effectively broadcast this vital information beyond their little-read websites which places babies at unnecessary risk of developing fluoride-damaged teeth, reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF). (more…)

Natural gas drilling responsible for causing flammable drinking water

Natural gas drilling operations are springing up both in the U.S. and the U.K., but opponents say that the industry is destroying groundwater and very seriously polluting the environment. After some residents living near natural gas drilling operations began noticing that their tap water was literally flammable, opposition groups in the U.K. started petitioning the government to stop the extractions until proper safety assessments are conducted.

A recent report covered by NaturalNews highlights the destruction being caused in Pennsylvania by the natural gas industry as well. “Fracking” chemicals, or those used to extract natural gas from the shale, end up polluting nearby water sources, even despite efforts to prevent contamination. According to that report, at least 1.28 million barrels of industry waste go unaccounted for every year, which means they are now most likely somewhere in the natural environment (http://www.naturalnews.com/030941_n…).

According to a report from the Tyndall Center for the Cooperative, a group pushing to stop shale drilling for natural gas in the U.K., the chemicals used by the natural gas industry are highly toxic and have been implicated in causing cancer. And because explosives and other extraction methods are used in conjunction with such chemicals, some of the pollutants are most seeping into drinking water supplies.

“It’s like tar sands in your backyard, both in terms of local pollution and in terms of carbon emissions,” said Paul Monaghan, head of social goals and sustainability at the Cooperative, to the Daily Mail, referring to the high-polluting extraction of oil from the tar sand pits of Canada.

Opposition groups are simply asking that proper environmental impact investigations be conducted before further drilling takes place, in order to ensure that citizens are not being needlessly exposed to dangerous chemicals in their drinking water.

Fluoridation contributes to Hypothyroidism

Fluoride is a commonly known product, which is generally understood to be a cavity-fighting ingredient. Those that use this product tend to consider this a gift of modern science. It’s in our toothpaste, our drinking water, various bottled drinks, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. It’s taken for granted that since it’s in trusted goods found at local markets that it’s totally safe for public consumption. Many do not know this but, in the case of water fluoridation, the chemicals used to fluoridate the water supply are not pharmaceutical grade, but instead are hazardous waste products of the phosphate fertilizer industry. It’s illegal to dump this chemical into rivers and lakes or release the parent gases into the atmosphere, yet we drink it readily every day. Even proponents of fluoridation concede that the major benefits are only topical, so why swallow it? Ninety percent of the chemicals used for fluoridation in the United States are not natural fluorides but are instead synthetic acids. More and more research shows that consumption of fluoride is linked to numerous health conditions including a common condition called hypothyroidism. (more…)

Stop Worrying About Your Water

Having plenty of good clean water seems like a basic human right, especially because having it is so fundamental to health. But a constant stream of headlines is keeping us alert to the toxic chemicals and pollutants showing up in tap water. Is there anything we can do to assure ourselves that our water is clean? Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit organization devoted to human and environmental health says yes. The group has created a data base that rates all water companies in the U.S. and lists the specific hazards of each so they can be addressed.

Since this initiative began in 2004, drinking water quality analysis of almost 20 million records obtained from state water officials by EWG has revealed 315 chemical pollutants in the tap water we bath in and drink. In December, 2010 the group spotlighted one of the most dangerous findings: the tap water of more than 30 US cities contains hexavalent chromium (chromium-6), a probable carcinogen made famous in the film Erin Brockovich.The average content is considerably higher than the limit proposed last year by the state of California. This chemical is linked to leukemia and other cancers as well as liver and kidney damage.
There have been no standards set for more than half of the chemicals identified by EWG, meaning there are no health or safety regulations acting as safeguards, and these chemicals can be present in water in any amount. Although the federal government does have guidelines for others, 49 of these regulated chemicals have been found in various places at levels exceeding those guidelines. There have been no new government drinking water standards set since 2001.

Fluoridation: Medicating our Water Part 2

Myths Are Very Hard to Dislodge
We can get a good idea of how much fluoride is safe by working with Roholm’s figures. You will remember that after the figures had been corrected, the amount needed to cause crippling fluorosis in a 100- to 229-pound person was reckoned to be 10 to 20 mg per day for 10 to 20 years. Since fluorides accumulate in a linear fashion, the crippling dosage of 10 mg per day for 10 years is the same as 5 mg per day for 20 years, and so on. If we extrapolate this to a normal lifetime with fluoridated water, this is the same as 2.5 to 5 mg per day for 40 to 80 years. But we should note that, for persons with kidney disease, the risk is greater because less fluoride will be eliminated by their malfunctioning kidneys.

It is also important to note that these figures are for crippling fluorosis, the last stage. It will take only 4 years at 10 mg/day, or 16 years at 2.5 mg per day, before a 100-pound individual can expect to experience phase 2, musculoskeletal fluorosis, with chronic joint pain and arthritic symptoms – with or without osteoporosis. That is the amount of fluoride found in just 2-1/2 liters of water. And that’s without counting the extra that today is inevitably found in foods, toothpaste, and other sources.

From this it is clear that the only safe limit for fluoride is none. (more…)
