For the past two years, I have known about the serious risks associated with the use of the common drug, fluoride. Fluoride is the only drug that is regulated into our public water supply with the intention of medicating the public (presumably against tooth decay, althought new science has revealed that fluoride is effective at preventing cavities only when administered topically; systemic application -as in water fluoridation – is ineffective for this purpose). This medicating without our consent may have other implications. On the back of every tube of fluoride toothpaste, you’ll find a small box with “drug” indications or warnings. The tube also warns: In case of accidental overdose, contact a poison control center immediately. The directions state that a normal dose is a “pea-size” amount. As the video below points out, that’s not how the toothpaste commercials market the stuff to us. I can recall Aquafresh® toothpaste commercials with the long wavy line of toothpaste and the nice curl at the very end, lapping over the top. With all the stripes and colors (and even glitter!) they make this stuff look and sometimes taste like candy. But beware, they say – it’s poison.
Studies also show that only about 50% of the fluoride that is ingested (through drinking fluoridated water or swallowing toothpaste) is excreted by the body, which suggests that fluoride, like many toxic chemicals, is bioaccumulative. Scientists have found that fluoride accumulates in the brain, kidneys and bones, which can lead to lower IQ, behavioral/hormonal problems, tooth decay and bone cancer. Although much of Europe has banned the addition of fluoride to municipal water supplies, this drug is still being pumped into American tap water to about 1.5-2 ppm (ppm=one drop in a full, standard-size bathtub), while some water companies are known to bump that to about 3ppm or higher. Negative health effects are seen at rates equal or greater than .5 ppm.
I encourage you to visit www.fluoridealert.org to learn about the health effects of fluoride and fluoridated water. The information I discovered there was enough for me to switch to a non-fluoride toothpaste (I use Jason’s Powersmile “peppermint to the max” No Fluoride Toothpaste), refuse fluoride treatments at the dentist (remember they say not to eat or drink for 30 minutes afterwards because it is a poison), and buy filters for my Berkey gravity filter to remove the fluoride my local water company adds. I hate the fact that I have to bathe in this stuff, but I haven’t found a shower filter yet that removes fluoride and doesn’t cost over $125. The fluorideaction network boasts nearly 1,900 signatures from professionals calling for the end of water fluoridation. Do the research for yourself and help end water fluoridation by standing with us!
According to Wikipedia, the health effects and symptoms of fluoride poisoning are:
[symptoms are predominantly] Gastrointestinal [interesting to note, this is where the common flu originates]
* Abdominal pain
* Mucosal injury
* Hyperactive reflexes
* Muscle weakness
* Muscular spasm
* Tetanic contractions
* Cardiac arrest
* Widening of QRS
* Various arrhythmias
Here’s another tidbit, this time from the Natural Solutions Foundation at healthfreedomusa.org:
Fluoride’s use in water began under the Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin. In the Gulags or prison camps, political prisoners who were given water with fluoride in it to drink were complacent and placid. The effect was noted and later reproduced by the Nazis in the drinking water provided to people in the death and slave labor camps. Many health freedom advocates question not only the use of a deadly poison with well documented health dangers across the population spectrum, but the use of a dangerous and behavioral numbing chemical in the nation’s water supply.
I can find no supporting evidence for the information above, as much as I am inclined to believe it. It seems that the internet information regarding “fluoride and mind control” is largely based upon theory and pseudo-science. With that said, however, the following is a “confession” from a former communist stating that the possibility of using fluoride in this way was certainly discussed:
To whom it may concern: I, Oliver Kenneth Goff, was a member of the Communist Party and the Young Communist League from May 2, 1936 to October 9, 1939. During this period of time, I operated under the alias of John Keats and the number 18-B-2. My testimony before the Government is incorporated in Volume 9 of the Un-American Activities Report for the year 1939.
While a member of the Communist Party, I attended Communist underground training schools outside the City of New York in the Bues Hall and 113 East Wells Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The East Wells Street School operated under the name of the Eugene Debs School. Here, under the tutoring of Eugene Dennis, M. Sparks, Morris Chyilds, Jack Kling and others, we were schooled in the art of revolutionary overthrow of the established Government.
We discussed quite thoroughly the fluoridation of water supplies and how we were using it in Russia as a tranquilizer in the prison camps. The leaders of our school felt that if it could be induced into the American water supply, it would bring about a spirit of lethargy in the nation; where it would keep the general public docile during a steady encroachment of Communism. We also discussed the fact that keeping a store of deadly fluoride near the water reservoir would be advantageous during the time of the revolution, as it would give us opportunity to dump this poison into the water supply and either kill off the populace or threaten them with liquidation, so that they would surrender to obtain fresh water.
We discussed in these schools, the complete art of revolution: the seizure of the main utilities, such as light, power, gas and water, but it was felt by the leadership that if a program of fluoridating the water could be carried out in the nation, it would go a long way toward the advancement of the revolution. ~ Oliver Kenneth Goff, 1957
