Fluoride is a highly toxic industrial waste product. It is used in industry for etching glass, uranium refinement, semi-conductor industries, and it is the active ingredient in some pesticides. It is a 23% solution of the highly toxic industrial waste, hydrofluorosilicic acid, removed from the smokestacks of the fertilizer and aluminum industries. The acid is also contaminated with small traces of arsenic, cadmium, mercury, lead, sulfates, iron and phosphorous.
There is a reason why strong vested interests have made us believe this toxic substance is "good for our teeth." It requires an expensive disposal process. They make more money if it is used, instead of being disposed of, so it is sold to municipalities throughout the country, to be added to our water supplies. The government ignores the environmental cost, because the military has an overriding interest in uranium refinement.
This is why the three major interests—uranium, aluminum, steel, and now DuPont, with their artificial fibers—combined to mount a disinformation campaign, that continues to this day. Scientific studies showing the dangers of fluorine in bone formation, tooth discoloration and formation, osteosarcoma, etc., were ruthlessly suppressed, bogus studies flooded the journals, and scientists who tried to look into the real story were frozen out of their jobs.
Researches have warned that intake of too much fluoride can cause skeletal and dental fluorisis (severe weakening of the bones, muscles, joints, and tooth enamel), bone fractures, and lethal poisoning. It also affects the brain. A recent year-long, low-dose (1ppm) rat study published in Brain Research, found that fluoride facilitated the uptake of aluminum into the brain and produced the kind of amyloid deposits (tangles in the brain) associated with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
One of the most serious effects of fluoride is its ability to displace iodine from the thyroid gland, thus attacking and reducing the secretion of thyroxin. Even Salmon avoid fluoridated waters when they can.
Fluoride is a Weapon of Mass Medication. For our government to mandate that the entire population be medicated with an industrial pollutant is criminal and counter to freedom of choice. Those who want fluoride can have it. Those who don't can't avoid it.
When the Icelandic volcano erupted in April, 2010, an Associated Press article about the grit that was disrupting air travel for days reported: "The ash is toxic—the fluoride causes long-term bone damage that makes teeth fall out and bones break." So why is this substance being put on teeth and in our drinking water supply?
The only sure way to get rid of fluoride and render your water safe to drink or bathe in is by steam distillation.
Regarding drinking water, if your city or town fluoridates its water supply buy only bottled water as long as it is bottled in plastic containers labeled with 1,2,4 or 5 located in the triangle on the bottom of the bottle. Bottled water in plastic containers labeled 3, 6 or 7 contain Bisphenol A which was recently banned in Canada for use in polycarbonate baby bottles.
