UK Against Fluoridation

Sunday, August 20, 2017

Saturday, August 19, 2017

When the U.S. Public Health Service endorsed water fluoridation in 1950, there was little evidence of its safety. Now, six decades later and after most countries have rejected the practice, more than 70 percent of Americans, as well as 200 million people worldwide, are drinking fluoridated water. The Center for Disease Control and the American Dental Association continue to promote it--and even mandatory statewide water fluoridation--despite increasing evidence that it is not only unnecessary but potentially hazardous to human health.

In this timely and important lecture, Dr. Paul Connett takes a new look at the science behind water fluoridation and argues that just because the dental and medical establishments endorse a public health measure doesn't mean it's safe. In the case of water fluoridation, the chemicals that go into the drinking water that more than 180 million people drink each day are not even pharmaceutical grade, but rather a hazardous waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry. It is illegal to dump this waste into the sea or local surface water, and yet it is allowed in our drinking water. To make matters worse, this program receives no oversight from the Food and Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency takes no responsibility for the practice. And from an ethical standpoint, Dr. Paul Connett says, water fluoridation is a bad medical practice: individuals are being forced to take medication without their informed consent, there is no control over the dose, and no monitoring of possible side effects.

Dr. Paul Connett brings new research to light, including links between fluoride and harm to the brain, bones, and endocrine system, and argues that the evidence that fluoridation reduces tooth decay is surprisingly weak.

Canada - Council hears water fluoridation presentation

Cold Lake’s water supply already contains 0.1 milligrams of fluoride per litre of water without any added. With the additional fluoride the City adds to the water, the level fluctuates between 0.6 milligrams of fluoride per litre and 1.0 milligram per litre. These levels are still well below Health Canada’s recommendation of 1.5 milligrams per litre.
Fluoride was originally introduced into drinking water in Canada as a means of reducing tooth decay in the general population.
The council said the issue of water fluoridation had come before them previously in 2011, but as new research is made available, they understand the need to re-examine the issue.
Melissa Williams argues that with the recent categorization of fluoride as a developmental neurotoxin, it should not be added to the City’s drinking water.
“[Fluoride is] now in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury,” Williams argued. “A developmental neurotoxin affects the brain, autism, hyper deficit disorders and learning disabilities.”
While many Canadian municipalities have been moving away from fluoridating the water supply, the research is at this time inconclusive about the benefits or detriments it provides.
“Informed consent is a standard practice in all medicine,” Williams stated about the addition of fluoride by the City to the water supply. “With water fluoridation we are forcing people to take medicines without consent, something a doctor cannot do with an individual patient.”
Coun. Bob Buckle pointed out that over 90 national and international health organizations endorse fluoridation of water in municipalities.
Coun. Chris Vining mentioned Calgary voted to stop fluoridating drinking water in 2011 and since then tooth decay in children has worsened.
Mayor Craig Copeland noted that the issue is currently a hot topic across the province.
“I know with City of Edmonton it’s being covered in their media as part of their election process as a question on their ballot, so people are talking about it,” Copeland said.
The issue will be discussed further at upcoming council meetings.

USA - Need fluoride added to your drinking water? Some cities go without it

Many of us have grown up with fluoridated water, and most health officials say it’s good for us.
But the fluoride debate has been reignited by Boynton Beach’s delays in having fluoridated water back on tap.
When the city of Boynton Beach recently completed its new water plant, it sparked an outcry from some dentists, who noticed the city still hasn’t resumed fluoride treatments.
Boynton Utilities halted the practice in early 2015 to make way for a $30 million water-plant upgrade. And the city says it won’t start fluoride use until as early as next year, once all construction is complete.
The sooner the better, says Frank Carberry, a Highland Beach dentist whose patients include some Boynton residents. “Fluoride is the key” to curbing tooth decay, he said. “It’s one of the basic elements of the body’s defense system against cavities.”
Johnny Johnson, a former pediatric dentist and president of the nonprofit American Fluoridation Society, recently contacted Boynton to also urge the city to reintroduce fluoride soon. “You drink the water, it does the job,” he said. “This is a nonpartisan health issue. It’s for the health of the public.”
Grand Rapids, Mich., became the first city to fluoridate its drinking water in 1945, and other cities adopted the practice in the following years, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
But people have debated fluoride for decades. Opponents of fluoridation have cited concerns over government’s involvement in their drinking water or worries that too much of the mineral could lead to health problems.
Janet Cimorelli, 73, a nutritionist, said she considers herself lucky to live in Boca Raton, a city that rejected a fluoridation proposal.
In 1999, the City Council decided against asking voters if they wanted fluoride, and Cimorelli was glad to hear it. That year, she told city leaders of concerns that fluoridation poses a serious health risk.
“It’s medicating a mass population that does not necessarily need fluoride,” she said Thursday. “From time to time, I call the city of Boca to be reassured that they have not changed their minds and that they’re not adding fluoride to the water.”
Public health officials say the evidence is solid that fluoridated drinking water helps protect teeth. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends fluoride as a preventative measure.
The Florida Department of Health says more that three-quarters of Floridians served by community water systems receive fluoridated water.
Most South Florida cities add it. According to the Florida Department of Health, almost everyone in Broward County gets fluoridated water. Delray Beach has added fluoride to its water since the City Commission decided on it back in the 1990s.
The town of Wellington is the most recent municipality to resume fluoridating its water, reintroducing it to the water system in May after going three years without it. Council members discussed for hours whether the town should fluoridate before approving it.
But some cities in Palm Beach County didn’t get on board with fluoridation, including Boca Raton, which serves 130,000 customers; Lake Worth, which serves about 40,000; and the town of Lantana, serving about 9,400.
“We’re just the water provider, so we’re responsible for providing good, clean water,” said Chris Helfrich, Boca’s utility director. “Twenty-five years ago, the City Council made a policy decision not to add fluoride to the water, and we’ve kept with the policy ever since.”
Dave Freudenberg, 72, served on the Boca City Council when fluoridation became a fiery issue there. In 1999, the City Council heard hours of public testimony for and against adding fluoride. But the Council voted against submitting the question of fluoridation to voters. Freudenberg cast the lone vote in favor.
“I thought that was the most undemocratic thing to do,” he said. “People have a right to choice.”
Still, Freudenberg is convinced fluoride can be a big help. He and his wife got cavities while growing up in Cincinnati, when the water wasn’t fluoridated, he said. They raised their four kids in Iowa, where there was fluoridated water, and none got cavities, he said.
Just about all of the state’s water contains some fluoride, and the majority of South Florida’s cities boost the natural level of fluoride in compliance with state guidelines.
Natural fluoride levels may vary between 0.2 and 0.4 parts per million. The recommended fluoride level for fighting cavities is 0.7 parts per million.
Boynton recently completed a $30 million water plant upgrade, resulting in purer, better-quality water, city officials said. The fluoride originally was meant to be absent for only 16 months but delays grew from construction projects............

From The Girl Against Fluoride Team

I would like to thank you for your support of The Girl Against Fluoride campaign. I would also like to take this opportunity to fill you in on what’s happened in the interim since we started the campaign in 2012 and to share our plans moving forward.

At the beginning of the campaign, we were naive enough to think that once politicians and councillors were aware of the health implications of fluoride, they'd want it removed from our water. Lesson number one, politicians are bound by party politics and seeing as Fine Fail, Fine Gael and Labour support the water fluoridation policy, no one politician in these parties can affect change. Although Brian Stanley of Sinn Fein did try to pass a bill to end water fluoridation he was largely unsupported and indeed was derided for going against a policy so heavily endorsed by the HSE.

When the political avenue was unsuccessful we attempted to go down the legal route, misguidedly thinking that a court case would reverse the law.  This involved working with solicitors and barristers for over three years. We realised in time that working pro bono is not in fact pro bono and that we had in some instances to pay for services rendered.

 Fortunately, we met an ethical solicitor in Dublin who, after a few meetings with our barristers, knew that we didn’t stand a chance against the government and the corporations they represented. The court case would cost millions and we would lose because water fluoridation wasn’t a mainstream topic. We were advised at this juncture to continue to spread awareness which we did.

Unfortunately, Anti- Water Charge groups against Irish water didn’t take water fluoridation as a valid reason not to pay for water. This showed us beyond any doubt that water fluoridation was still a marginal issue.

Having spent four years battling the system, we had to lay down our proverbial swords and rethink strategies. Aisling had to complete the Nutritional Therapy exams she’d deferred for years and had to plan starting her own business in Natural Health Care. Having worked on the campaign for so long and having experienced such intense opposition takes its toll emotionally and physically. Every avenue had been explored on the outside and we were no closer to a resolution.

It felt heart breaking as we had invested so much time, energy and money opposing the system. But the campaign provided valuable lessons, one being that we strengthen what we oppose. The more we pushed against an end to water fluoridation, any existing loop holes were legally closed to the extent that fluoride in water is now regarded as a food! You see fluoride as a medicine/cosmetic would require safety testing so its definition was conveniently altered.

Another lesson we learned was that public support is vital. More people need to become aware of the water fluoridation issue and although we had a series of events all over Ireland, no one person or group can reach everyone. We continue to spread awareness online and Aisling has incorporated the importance of clean safe water into her practice as a Holistic Nutrition Coach and Educator. More and more people are now getting on board and are speaking out to their families, friends and to people in their workplace. Aisling has created a free private online community where she shares transformative health tips.

Our state of consciousness creates the world. Change consciousness and together we help dissolve the current belief system. Real change comes from within to the extent that one’s life becomes the message and inspires others to change. If you’re not already a member of the growing online community for change, you are invited here to join https://www.facebook.com/groups/EnergyisYourCurrencyCommunity/

Our aim is to ensure that water fluoridation issue stays topical and becomes mainstream over time. It will take a generational shift to shift awareness so in the meantime we have work to do before this happens. We need to educate the next generation of children (soon to be voters) who will instinctively know that water fluoridation isn't  best practice.

Many truth seekers have understood that water fluoridation needs to be stopped as they see through the system. However, there are people who cannot take that quantum leap as it brings into disrepute the medical system in which they trust implicitly. Fluoride is a side effect of giving our power away to the medical system and the government. In the words of Nicolas Gonzalez “Medicine is an unacknowledged religion complete with its own language, costume and places of worship”.

Those who awaken to the reality of the water fluoridation policy find it difficult to understand those who cannot see what they see. We struggled with this ourselves in the beginning and were even ostracised by family members until they had heard it from other sources. Only then did their belief in water fluoridation shatter. We were made to feel like heretics as we challenged the medical system, one of the pillars of people’s belief systems.

Water fluoridation has been a gateway to awakening people to other injustices endemic in our country.  It brings into question our alleged democratic governance and shows that our elected representatives don’t represent our wishes. The majority of councils in Ireland voted to end water fluoridation but the law prevents them from taking action.

In June 2017, Aisling spoke to a group in Galway demonstrating how she’s currently incorporating her message into her work which guarantees that more people will be educated on the risks of water fluoridation. As she has learned that fear is the number one impediment to people opening up to the water fluoridation issue, she has written a free eBook on how we can move from fear to trust. If you would like a free copy then please respond and we will send it to you.

The TGAF team also have more creative ideas to spread awareness of water fluoridation in a fun way and novel way-  humour and a gentle dose of satire are needed at this point. We’ll keep you posted on what’s happening with this in the coming months.
We trust you have enjoyed your Summer and would love to invite you to belong to a community dedicated to raising awareness and consciousness. https://www.facebook.com/groups/EnergyisYourCurrencyCommunity/
The vision of a fluoride free Ireland is always in our thoughts.
Warm wishes,
The Girl Against Fluoride Team

Scientifically illiterate mainstream media now claims non-fluoridated bottled water is “causing cavities” … Yes, WATER is now called dangerous if it’s clean

(Natural News) If asked to think of an image of something clean and pure in nature, many people would picture a waterfall or stream. Genuine, natural spring water, from a clean source, which hasn’t been tampered with or had piles of chemicals added to it, is highly sought after for its mineral content and other health benefits. Of course, many bottled waters are really just glorified tap water and not worth the extra expense. Nonetheless, a claim by the Daily Mail that bottled water is somehow worse for your teeth because it isn’t loaded with fluoride is ludicrous, to say the least.
A recent article in the Mail notes that some popular brands of bottled water might be bad for your teeth because 1) they contain pH levels that are too acidic, and 2) because they do not contain added fluoride.
The article explains that pH levels can fall anywhere between zero and 14, with 7 being neutral. Numbers below 7 represent high acidity, while anything over 7 would be alkaline. Acidic drinks like sodas and coffee are known to be bad for your teeth, causing staining and even cavities.
The Mail claims that several of the bottled water brands its in-house team tested had acidity levels in the “dangerous” zone, and should therefore be avoided.
Dr. Eunjung Jo of Astor Smile Dental explains, “Our enamel starts to erode at a pH level of 5.5 so it’s best to avoid any drinks with a pH that is lower than 5.5.”
This all sounds reasonable, and if you do choose to buy bottled water from a reputable source rather than filtering your own, it does make sense to be on the lookout for a more alkaline brand.
Nonetheless, the article’s second claim, that the lack of added fluoride in bottled water is somehow damaging to your health, is quite simply false, though that is the narrative which is always fed to the mainstream media by medical professionals and government departments alike.
According to the Mail, fluoride is a “healthy ion that is good for tooth enamel.”
Children are urged to consume as much fluoride as possible, since their teeth are still developing. This supposedly protects against cavities and prevents hypo-fluorosis, a condition which causes white marks on teeth.
“If they are not drinking a significant amount of tap water and are only drinking filtered, bottled water without measured levels of fluoride, then they could developmentally have problems,” according to Dr. Tema Starkman of High Line Dentistry. “The studies say that during the developmental stage of growth for children, accurate fluoride levels in tap water could contribute to healthy enamel formation.”
Though the dental profession’s concerns about too little fluoride may make sense when taken at face value, it is important to dig deeper and see what the effects are of too muchfluoride. (Related: Discover more information about dental hygiene at Dentistry.news)
A 2015 study by researchers from the University of Kent, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, revealed that people who live in areas with elevated fluoride levels in their water are 30 percent more likely to develop hypothyroidism (also known as an underactive thyroid).
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include feeling cold, fatigue, dry skin, forgetfulness, depression, constipation and weight gain. There is no cure for hypothyroidism, and without treatment symptoms will escalate and worsen over time.
England allows for 1.0mg/L of fluoride to be added to its water supplies, while in the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the limit at 4.0mg/L.
When the Kent study looked at areas where fluoride levels exceeded 0.7mg/L they found higher than normal levels of hypothyroidism. However, even when they examined areas with just 0.3mg/L of fluoride in the water they found that people were 30 percent more likely to have the condition. (Related: Read more about how this and other studies linked fluoride to hypothyroidism, fatigue, obesity and depression.)
Back home in the United States, a study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association had similarly alarming results. Ironically, the research team discovered that the very fluoride added to water to prevent fluorosis, actually causes it!
[Y]oung children have the highest risk of severe tooth damage from fluoride, especially those that are six months of age or younger, a time during which children’s blood-brain barriers have not fully formed. Even low ingestion levels cause the direct depositing of fluoride into the teeth, brain and other bodily tissues and organs which, besides causing fluorosis, also causes disorders of the brain and nervous system, kidneys and bones.
Sadly, the American Dental Association has been aware since at least 2006 that fluoride actually causes fluorosis and other problems, but has done nothing to educate dentists or the public about the dangers.
All things considered, even if “natural,” non-fluoridated water does stain your teeth (which is highly unlikely, anyway), that sounds far less risky than drinking fluoridated tap water which is sure to worsen your healt

USA - City agrees to seek grant to update fluoridation equipment

In the 1964 film Dr. Strangelove,” Brigadier Gen. Jack Ripper believes the Communists are using the fluoridation of water to pollute America's “precious bodily fluids.”
The general, who turns out to be stark raving mad, triggers a nuclear first strike on the Soviet Union over the issue and, presumably, global nuclear war.
Nothing like that was on the Athens City Council's agenda Monday.
The council simply considered and approved a request by Athens Water Services Manager Frank Eskridge to apply for a grant of up to $25,000 from the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) to replace the city's water fluoridation equipment. Eskridge told The News Courier before the meeting the city's fluoridation equipment is currently working correctly but is old and needs replacing.
Water Services applied for the grant earlier this year but did not receive one, though competition was strong. Eskridge said he received a letter a week ago inviting the city to apply again.
Some of the city's fluoridation equipment is 50 years old, said Eskridge, noting the equipment includes pumps, lines and gauges.
“They have a fairly long life but it wouldn't be bad to replace them,” he said. “The equipment has continued to function. In the absence of the grant, we will evaluate whether it needs to be replaced next year.”
Why fluoride?
Fluoridation is the controlled addition of fluoride to a public water supply to reduce tooth decay. Eskridge said part of NACCHO's mission is to promote public health, and fluoridation of drinking water is part of that mission.
“Fluoridation is shown to be an effective tool in preventing childhood dental problems,” he said.
Some people disagree with fluoridating drinking water because they believe it is unsafe.
“The American Dental Association, the American Medical Association and the Alabama Department of Public Health are all solidly behind fluoridation of public drinking water,” Eskridge said.
Statistical evidence shows communities that fluoridate water have fewer incidents of childhood tooth decay, he said.
“Fluoride is a naturally occurring element in nature,” Eskridge said. “If you pull water out of a well with a pump, you will have a variety of minerals in the water that you will not have in a surface water source. We (Athens Utilities) use surface water as our source. It comes from the Elk River.”
He said where he grew up in South Carolina, the ground water had fluoride in the 4 and 5 parts per million range. Too much fluoride can cause teeth to become mottled or gray, something Eskridge said he saw growing up.
The surface water treated by Athens Utilities has no fluoride, so the utility department adds 0.7 parts per million.
“You can have drinking water that has more naturally occurring amounts of fluoride than we are adding,” he said. “In our case, we control the level very care fully, putting in just enough to do good.”

Anyone who thinks that delivering any medication by dumping it into public water supplies is scientific is scientifically illiterate. On top of that, fluoride is highly toxic and a cumulative poison, like lead, arsenic, and mercury. I have asked many forced-fluoridation fanatics to tell me how much accumulated fluoride in the body they think is safe. So far not a single one of them has been able to answer the question. It is unlikely to just be a coincidence that the US, Australia, and Ireland, which have had high rates of forced-fluoridation for decades, also have high rates of joint problems, and poor health outcomes in general.

Some say fluoride helps CHILDREN’S teeth as they form. That is certainly questionable, but:
It is important to ask --- exactly why should an ADULT be sentenced to take this toxic chemical, fluoride, in every glass of water every day of life?
Fluoridation results in slow poisoning over a lifetime which causes premature ageing, thyroid damage, dental fluorosis, lowered IQ, ADHD, brittle bones (broken hips & arthritis), kidney damage, cancer and other health dangers.
Read this excellent book, "The Case Against Fluoride" authored by three scientists, one an M.D. It contains over 1200 scientific references, over 80 pages.
So, while 74% of the U.S. is forced to drink fluoridate water, only 5% of the world and only 3% of Europe fluoridate their water.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Fluoride in Drinking Water

Fluoride is known to be used in systemic and topical fluoride therapy so as to prevent decay of tooth and it is found in several products that is related to oral hygiene. In some states where big, centralized water delivery system is rare, fluoride is added to table salt. On the other hand, the majority of water supplies in the United States of America are now fluoridated. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages of fluoride in drinking water in the following array of the article.

Advantages of Fluoride in Drinking Water:

Below are some of the advantages of fluoride in drinking water.
  1. Fluoride in drinking water may be useful in preventing tooth decay. It is believed that fluoridated drinking water can reduce cavities significantly and also tooth decay up to 90%.
  2. As per The WHO or World Health Organization, the benefits of fluoride in drinking water or water fluoridation are best for the economically poor individuals, who frequently do not have access to sufficient effective dental care.

Disadvantages of Fluoride in Drinking Water:

Though it may seem that fluoride in drinking water can be of some good benefit, there are a lot of concerns about fluoride and here we have mentioned some of the disadvantages of fluoride in drinking water.
  1. Fluoride may have a health risk to individuals who suffer from kidney disease and extensive use of water fluoridation actually make it hard to avoid.
  2. Excess of fluoride might cause spots on the teeth of children. As per a CDC study, 2 out of 5 adolescents have tooth spottiness or streaking due to excessive fluoride. In severe cases, teeth can even be rutted by fluoride.
  3. Many clinicians share a concern that this mineral may play a role in all common symptoms of low thyroid functions like weight gain, fatigue, cold hands and feet, irregular bowel functions, dry skin, brain fog etc.
  4. There are also concerns that fluoride in drinking water may have increased risks to thyroid and liver.
  5. There are also some links of fluoride treatment to cancer. Fluoride treatments in male rats are associated with bone cancer. So, this may also be cons of fluoride in drinking water.
  6. There have been some data that show excess fluoride use is associated with weakened bones, especially the hip joints.
Many countries have been adding fluoride to water for many years. However, several countries in Europe have banned the mineral from their drinking water. Water fluoridation also poses great risk, especially in the infants and the elderly, as they may be more susceptible to changes in the fluoride levels and must be watched closely.
So, even though there may be some advantages of fluoride in drinking water, there exists a lot of disadvantages as well and thus there must be some steps taken to remove fluoride from your drinking water via various filtration methods such as distillation, reverse osmosis, alumina defluoridation, etc; which can help you get rid of most unwanted impurities.

WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 -

Canada - No action on request to rethink fluoride decision

NIPAWIN - Council is not proceeding with a request by the Kelsey Trail Health Region's medical officer of health to re-visit their decision to not add fluoride to Nipawin's drinking water supply.
Dr. Mohammed Khan sent a letter to council at the end of July asking them to discuss the issue again, after becoming "more informed on this important public health issue."
Council looked at the letter in their regular council meeting on August 14 but made no motions.
The only comment on the matter came from Mayor Rennie Harper, who said that they were previously aware of all the points Khan raised in his letter that would argue in favour of fluoridation.
Most residents of Nipawin did not appear to be in favour of the fluoridation, given the content of local social media discussion groups.

For the mystics
Boiling won't get rid of fluoride neither will the waterfall.

USA - Frankford set to add fluoride to public water system

Frankford set to add fluoride to public water system

FRANKFORD – If all goes well, the town of Frankford today was scheduled to begin adding fluoride to its public water system, part of a loan-forgiveness package agreement with the state of Delaware.
Frankford’s entire municipal water system of approximately 349 connections will receive fluoridated water.
Frankford councilman Gregory Welch, council’s water plant liaison, said he was informed “there might be a little bit of a delay, maybe a day or so. But it could possibly go in today.”
The completed project cost $20,000 and was partially funded by a Drinking Water Matching Grant from the Delaware Health and Social Services Division of Public Health’s State Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund Program..........................

Troubled Water

Troubled Water is a 30-minute documentary about drinking water contamination in America. The film explores nine locations across the country where water has affected people.

Fluoride and Why You Need to Avoid It

Fluoride and It’s Impact on Your Health

Myth: Fluoride is Safe

On January 25, 1945, Grand Rapids Michigan became the first community in the US to fluoridate the drinking water to prevent tooth decay.  What was not realized by citizens at the time is that fluoride is now considered a neurotoxin and can have many negative health effects from ingesting it.
Fluoride is found in water, processed beverages, toothpaste and some medications.  Many of us are led to believe not only that fluoride is harmless but that we also need to consume it.  Fluoride is found naturally occurring in some areas and can lead to naturally high fluoride levels in some water supplies. However, just because fluoride may be there naturally, does not mean it is safe. Fluoride is for the most part added to the water supply and is not a naturally occurring ingredient.
Most countries do not add fluoride to their water, including 97% of western Europe.  In the US, more than 70% of the water is fluoridated.


Research is showing that children being exposed to fluoride can have various health effects.  Fluoride is now being associated with ADHD and other mental disorders.  A study looked at 4-17-year old’s and data was collected in 2003, 2007 and 2011.  They found that water fluoridation in 1992 significantly positively predicted the prevalence of ADHD in 2003, 2007 and 2011. The states that have heavily fluoridated water also have high ADHD levels.
Not only may it be causing ADHD in your child.  But it is impacting our health in many other ways as well.
There is evidence that fluoride impacts the thyroid gland.  It has been found that there are higher rates ofhypothyroidism in areas of fluoridated water.  Fluoride has been shown to block the uptake of iodine which is necessary for adequate thyroid function.
Fluoride has been shown to have lack of effectiveness in preventing tooth decay. The CDC claimed that dental caries declined in the second half of the 20th century but they did not mention that this happened in all western nations, regardless of whether they had fluoridated water or not.  Most of these countries they looked at did not have fluoridated water. Dr. Mercola, in his article “You’re still told fluoridation prevents tooth decay, but science proves otherwise” sites various examples of countries that have eliminated fluoridation yet rates of cavities continues to decline.

What Fluoride Can Do to Your Health

  • Linked to the lowering of IQ in children
  • It accumulates in the body over time so even though you may ingest small amounts, this builds up over years and can contribute to health issues. (think of that small amount of toothpaste that gets swallowed, not just one time…)
  • Kidney disease
  • Cause calcification of the pineal gland (pineal gland is responsible for melatonin production) hint: sleep issues?
  • Arthritis
  • Bone disease
  • Ulcers
  • Infertility
  • Discoloration of teeth
  • Hypothyroidism (can block iodine uptake)
  • Disrupts the immune system
  • Uterine cancer
  • Cause ADHD symptoms

Where Fluoride is Found

  • Toothpaste
  • Fluoride mouth rinse
  • Fluoride treatment from dentist office, applied topically to teeth (this may be the only benefit to using fluoride)
  • In your water
  • Medications such as Cipro (antibiotic), Flecainide (used to treat arrhythmia), Niflumic Acid (used for joint and muscle pain), Voriconazole (for fungal infections). These meds contain organofluoride which metabolizes into fluoride.
  • Processed drinks (that use fluoridated water to make their products) such as sodas, juice, sport drinks and some beers
  • Some dry infant cereals (more info at )
  • Teflon pans
  • Canned soups

Ways to Minimize Fluoride Exposure

  1. Switch to different cooking pots and pans such as cast iron, ceramic, glass, stoneware and stainless- steel cookware.
  2. Look for a toothpaste that does not contain fluoride. Just because it is a “natural” brand, does not mean it does not contain fluoride.
  3. Use a fluoride filter system. I like the Berkey as it is cost effective and easy to use. (you will need to purchase the fluoride filter). (no affiliation)
  4. Cut down on the processed drinks. You don’t need these drinks in your diet for many other reasons but this is one more good reason to avoid juices, sodas, plastic bottled waters and sport drinks. As for the beer, I will leave that one up to you.

How to Flush out Fluoride

Dr. Mark Sircus states that chelation will not work to remove fluoride from the body and that the only method is to load the body with iodine as this will displace fluoride from cell receptors and will flush the fluoride out in the urine.  You can get iodine from seaweeds such as nori, wakame, kelp or dulse. Seafood such as salmon, lobster, scallops, cod and shrimp are also good sources of iodine. Foods that contain iodine, but in lower amounts, include cranberries, potatoes, strawberries and navy beans.
If you decide to detox from fluoride, you should work under the care of a holistic professional as the detox may trigger some symptoms such as headaches, agitation and heart palpitations as the fluoride is being released.  In addition to that, most during the detox will also need additional liver support and nutritional support.
If you are not sure if your water is fluoridated, request a water report from http://www.ofmpub.epa.gov

Bottom Line: You do not need to consume fluoride and in fact should avoid it as much as you can. If you have ADHD or hypothyroidism (or any of the above-mentioned health issues for that matter), consider the fluoride in your diet as a contributing factor. Minimize your exposure and detox safely under the guidance of a professional.

My opinion on Charlottesville Virginia Rally - Bunch Of Tap Water Fluoride Drinking Heathens

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Fluoride in Water Ineffective, Harmful, Wa$teful, studies show

Fluoridation: A Failed Tooth Decay Preventive, Federal Data Shows; Cavity Rates Unchanged; Dental Fluorosis Up 600%; Safety Still Doubted

After 72 years of fluoridation, reaching 2/3 of Americans, promising to substantially reduce tooth decay, especially in poor children, the American Journal of Public Health(2017) reports “Despite significant
financial, training, and program investments, US children’s caries experience and inequities continued to increase over the last 20 years.”
Children are fluoride-overdosed while oral-health-disparities between poor and non-poor increase. “America's shockingly poor dental care system,” is profiled in the Yakima Herald.
The silent oral-health epidemic, declared in 2000 by US Surgeon General David Satcher, persists
today, he says.
Fluoridation, an outdated 1945 concept, predicted only 10% would suffer mild dental fluorosis
(white-flecked teeth). However, 58% of adolescents are now afflicted - some with
more severe fluorosis (stained, pitted teeth) without benefit of less tooth decay.
For example, the Journal of the American Dental Association (Dye 2017) reports, 65% of poor 6-8 year-olds and 12-15 year-olds have cavities in their primary and permanent teeth, respectively.
Dye reports: “The prevalence of pediatric caries in the United States has remained consistent for the past 3 decades.”
"… there has been little improvement in preventing caries initiation," said Dye.
Is organized dentistry, leading fluoridation promoters, to blame? They wrote in December 2016,
"the ADA will need to increase efforts in communities not only where fluoridation is
challenged but increase efforts to assist members in identifying and initiating
fluoridation efforts in those communities where fluoridation might be
successfully implemented." (This link has been removed from public
view after this news release was published.)
The dental-lobby promotes taxpayer funded fluoridation but opposes Dental Health Therapists because it means competition. Fluoridation hasn't hurt dentists' bottom line. In fact, fluoridation contributes to dentists' income as they advertise their services to hide and cover those fluoride damaged teeth. See: http://tinyurl.com/DentalFluor...
Organized dentistry is protecting its political viability by supporting fluoridation. But are the
American people protected? Researchers report fluoridation safety doubts
Reason Magazine reports “The over-the-top intimidation tactics of the ADA [American Dental Association] and its shiny-toothed shock troops,” contributed to high healthcare costs. A lawmaker is quoted as
saying “I put their power right up there with the NRA.”
The Washington Post (“The unexpected political power of dentists”) quoted a Harvard dentist comparing
the ADA to ISIS.  
Free once-a-year “pop-up” dental clinics “fail to relieve the suffering of marginalized people but also can produce it,” according to a dissertation by Raskin.
Raskin explains extractions are routine and “incentivized” instead of preventive or restorative care. Dentist volunteerism declined; patients are turned away.
Oral health issues costs $6 billion in lost productivity yearly. Emergency department oral pain visits cost $2 billion yearly and contribute to the opioid-addiction epidemic.
NYSCOF President, attorney Paul Beeber says, “This is a clear indication that fluoridation has failed miserably, wasted tax-dollars and fluoride-overdosed our children. Organized dentistry has priced
low-income Americans out of dental care.”
In 2008, the New York Times profiled the political clout of the New York State Dental Association.
July 2017, the New York Post reported that that NYS Dentist PAC donated $4M to political campaigns in 2010 and “the mint from the dentist’s chair has paid off – the trade group has blocked legislation in the
statehouse that could spur competition and hurt business.”
Evidence that fluoridation failed New York State is hereand here
“People need to take back their water systems from special interest groups. Contact your local, state and federal legislators and tell them to stop funding and promoting fluoridation schemes,” says Beeber.
Despite growing evidence that fluoridation is a failed concept, the American Dental Association is aggressively pursing increasing fluoridation rates throughout the nation. Are they serving the public or the political viability of organized
