The Truth About
Many people need to avoid fluoride altogether to preserve their health. We knowthis because scientists in government agencies have documented it extensively.So why do they continue to add it to over 75% of public water supplies in the US?
And how can they claim that it is safe and “optimal” when one person may drink
1 cup of water a day and another may drink 1 gallon of water a day?The U.S. Public Health Service reported in 1991 that people living in cities with
“optimal” water fluoridation can easily receive a total daily fluoride exposure ex-ceeding 6.5 mg … more than 600% higher than the “optimal” amount. And water
is the first item on the list. Fluoride is also found in:
Soft Drinks and Juice
Commercially raised fruits & vegetables
Processed and canned food, wine, beer, coffee and tea
And that’s just to name a few—
not to mention increasing fluorine pollution in theenvironment.
Pros and Cons of Fluoride
Fluoride is more toxic than lead and nearly as toxic as arsenic according to the
Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products 5th Edition, 1984).
It is NOT an essentialnutrient. The fluoride added to your drinking water is in fact a chemical wasteproduct that was classified as a toxic waste in this country for years.
In fact, nottoo long ago its only approved uses were as an insecticide and a RAT POISON!
The biological effect of fluoride on living tissue is the disruption of enzyme activity,including the enzymes that maintain life in the cells of the human body. Fluoride isan endocrine disruptor that was used for decades in Europe as a drug to treatoveractive thyroid by depressing thyroid function. Alarmingly, the dosage onceprescribed to reduce thyroid activity is about the same amount ingested by peo-ple in many communities today.Healthy kidneys are able to clear less than 50% of the fluoride taken into the body,and kidneys are prone to damage in the fluoride-filtering process. Fluoride is bone-seeking, and fluoride that is not excreted by the kidneys accumulates primarily inthe bones, never to leave. Does it make any sense to surround the bone marrow,the blood factories of the body, with a toxic element more deadly than lead?So why is fluoride hyped up to be this life-saving nutrient that we all should get?Dentists have been recommending fluoride treatments, fluoridated toothpastesand mouthwash for years to prevent cavities. Interestingly enough, there are noscientifically-valid tests to prove this theory for safety and effectiveness. Fluoridewas never the answer to tooth decay and new testing is proving that the areas ofthe world without fluoride are showing the same rates of tooth decay as fluori-dated areas.However, all over the world the rate of dental cavities has fallen dramatically indeveloped countries, even though most have never added fluoride componentsto their water. The common factor seems to be better nutrition and higher healthstandards.
