”Development of the program must begin with re-education and stimulation of the individual dentist both in the community and in the dental school, whose active participation is essential to the success of any fluoridation program.  Individual dentists must be convinced that they need not be familiar with scientific reports of laboratory and field investigations on fluoridation to be effective participants in the promotion program and that non-participation is overt neglect of professional responsibility.  Initiation of this part of the promotional effort should include the preparation of a short fact sheet for wide distribution.” - American Dental Association (1979)  http://fluoridealert.org/content/1979-ada-white-paper/ 

 

". . . in the previous year (1955) many responsible persons had felt that the public should be spared the ordeal of “knowledge about controversy.” If word ever got out that the Public Health Service had actually done something damaging to the health of the American people, the consequences would be terrible. . . . We felt that no lasting good could come to science or the public if the Public Health Services were discredited.” Congressman Percy Priest on the thousands of  paralytic illnesses provoked by the immunization and the many who died in the “Cutter Incident." The definition of polio was changed from a paralysis lasting more than 24 hours to one lasting more than 60 days in order to declare the immunization program a success 

 

When anyone tries to tell you that we are so much healthier than ever before and Americans have the best health care, they lie. The US did lead in good health in 1950, but since then our health has declined while our health costs have sky rocketed compared to our contemporaries in other countries. It's gotten particularly bad this century, with over half of our children suffering from a chronic illness and many more cases of paralysis diagnosed as Guillain-Barré Syndrome or Transverse Myelitis than ever beforeMany of these GBS and TM victims require a ventilator, the modern version of an Iron Lung.... their number exceeds the 1950s polio victims.  

 

The Institute of Medicine wrote in their 2013 report U.S. Health in International Perspective: Shorter Lives, Poorer Health document that across all stratas, American health has been in decline since the 1950s.... you know what happened around 1950? As part of the "better living through chemistry" model promoted by our government, we started fluoridating our water, generously spraying poisons on our food and in our neighborhoods, and pushing drugs starting with the polio vaccine that provided an income to the government. Today, the CDC holds 56 vaccine and adjuvant patents and therefore makes money on every administration of these drugs.

 

I got very ill after that OPV vaccine. I missed months of school with a "kidney infection" and was unable to walk for several weeks. Couldn't be polio, but I was paralyzed. When recovered, I suffered fainting spells and horrible hay fever. I also needed glasse for the first time; my eyesight was shot. Same thing is going on in India today. Polio rates are down, but paralysis rates are up and paralysis associated deaths have doubled. As to that kidney infection, our government had known for several years that the polio vaccine was contaminated with SV40, a monkey kidney virus, but didn't want to waste the vaccines already manufactured or create any doubt in the public. SV40 virus is associated with several types of cancers with long latency, documented by the NIH and IOM. 

Whatever is going on overall, it's equal parts environmental and political. Government agencies and politicians are more interested in protecting profits than in protecting people. We have too many poisons in our water, food and medicines.... and FLUORIDE, which is in literally everything, is an inflammatory drug and adjuvant which intensifies the symptoms of any inflammatory or autoimmune disease. Get political!

“When studying any matter, ask yourself two things: what are the facts and what is the truth that the facts bear out. Never let yourself be diverted by what you wish to believe, or what you think would have beneficent social effects if it were believed. Look only and solely at what are the facts.”Bertrand Arthur William Russell, logician and Nobel laureate (1959)

 

“There’s no doubt that the intake of fluoridated water is going to interrupt basic functions of nerve cells in the brain, and this is certainly not going to be [for] the benefit of anybody……The addition of fluorides to drinking water was, and is, a mistake.” - Dr. Robert Isaacson, 2006 National Research Council panelist on Fluoride in Drinking Water (2007)

 

Six organizations plus several individuals filed a Citizen's Petition with the EPA on the topic of the neurotoxicity of fluoridation and the regulations of the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) in November 2016. The petition includes 46 pages of scientific citations specific to the neurotoxic effects of fluoride. I especially like section IX of the petition that points out that per scientific protocol, no potable water should be considered safe for consumption if it contains fluoride levels above point one parts per million, i.e. safe water concentrations should be set as < .1 ppm. 

 

The EPA has 90 days to respond. However, the best thing about this TSCA petition, other than further paving the way for lawsuits, is that it gives the EPA a way of ending fluoridation without addressing the naturally occuring or accidental contamination of water with fluoride which is the economic motivation for the high 4 ppm contaminant level found unsafe by the NRC in 2006 but still in effect. The TSCA regulation referenced only addresses the intentional addition of substances to water and EPA authority to act on the neurotoxicity science.

“The government hires scientists to support its policies; industry hires them to support its business; and universities hire them to bring in grants that are handed out to support government policies and industry practices.” - David L. Lewis, PhD, microbiologist (2014)

 

Have you seen the latest two exposes on fluoridation? 

 

Out of Israel, a social science team documents the misrepresentation of scientific  and historical fact by lobbyists and politicians in order to deceive the public and mandate a policy that benefits vested interests, but harms public health.  They call it "uncertainty bias" but I call it lies and bullying. August 2016 in Journal of Risk Research: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/305985332 

 

Out of Scandinavia, team determines that incidence of Crohn's disease and other irritable bowel disease (IBD) experiences a sharp and significant uptick in  communities that fluoridate in Canada, the US, Australia and Wales. They also note that there is a similarly significantly higher rate of IBD in communities with naturally high levels of fluoride and in industrial workers exposed to fluoride on the job. People who brush their teeth frequently are more likely to suffer IBD, too. Plus, animal studies confirm, even low levels of fluoride inflames the bowels.  S**t! Vol 51, 2016 Issue 9 in Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology  http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00365521.2016.1177855?journalCode=igas20

Fluoride accumulates lifelong in our bones. What makes a profluoridationist think it miraculously goes only to the teeth? Does the tooth fairy direct all the fluoride ion entering your bloodstream only to your teeth? Absurd! Bone sawed off my femur head during total hip replacement was ashed and measured 1500ppm as F. Analyzed by a reputable mineral lab because I couldn't find a medical lab offering F analysis of bone. I have many ailments (parathyroid and thyroid disease, kidney stones, osteoarthritis, dental fluorosis, GERD, uterine fibroids and prolapse, neurological problems such as loss of memory, hospitalized with acute pancreatitis, GI and bladder irritation) but AMA doctors have not recognized the contribution of chronic low level F poisoning even when I mentioned acute exposure to F gasses at work  as a chemist at a water treatment plant. Avoiding F for 3 years has slowly reversed many ailments especially normalizing parathyroid hormone levels, shrinking of thyroid goiter and  lowering of antibodies against my thyroid and GI issues.

 

Baby Boomers-connect the dots and awake up to the reality you have been part of an ill conceived human science experiment being lifelong exposed to chronic low level fluoride poisoning and many of the illnesses you currently experience are directly related to the level of your fluoride exposure lifelong. Protect yourself and loved ones now and avoid all the many exposures to fluoride.

“The current system in the United States for evaluating scientific evidence and making health-based decisions about environmental chemicals is fundamentally broken,” - Project TNDR (Targeting Environmental Developmental Risks) 2016

 

“There are numerous mechanisms by which uncontrolled dosing of fluorides through water fluoridation can potentially harm thyroid function, the body and the brain…Communities of color and the underserved are disproportionately harmed by fluorides." - Mark Hyman, MD (2016)

 

Incredulously, the fluoridationist profiteers and their shills are not only continuing to pour millions of dollars into supporting this policy, they have managed to kill a CNN medical expose on fluoridation and are tying Medicaid dollars to fluoridation even as more studies are proving connections between fluoride consumption and increases in diabetes and irritable bowel disease. 

 

  • 2016 in Scandanavian Journal of Gastronology Fluoride: a risk factor for inflammatory bowel disease? found statistical spikes in diagnoses of Crohn's and other IBD in America, Canada, Australia and Wales shortly after communities fluoridated.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27199224 

 

  • 2016 in Journal of Water and Health Community water fluoridation predicts increase in age-adjusted incidence and prevalence of diabetes in 22 states from 2005 and 2010 found that NaF, which is not only used to fluoridate water supplies but is also prescribed to children living in non-fluoridated communities, spikes diabetes.   http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-08/cwru-fcl081716.php

 

Folks - this is serious. Phone and email AARP executives and DEMAND the AARP use their power in Congress and with state officials to end the poisoning of our water supplies!

“No school, college or independent medical research institution dares to be critical of fluoridation because they receive grants from the U.S. Public Health Service. Likewise, no big food, beverage or drug company will dare speak critically of fluoride because they are under the supervision of the FDA, a branch of the USPHS. One brewery official told me that their own research indicated grave questions about fluoridation, but they dare not speak out. As you know, the Food and Drug Administration can bankrupt any national food, beverage or drug company with a little adverse comment." - W .B. Hartsfield, mayor of Atlanta, Georgia, in Dental Survey (1961)

 

The politics of fluoridation promotion are staggering. The worst of the social media trolls formed a non-profit, bought an url, and are collecting grant money to continue to spew their lies. The "American Fluoridation Society" got at least $50,000 from Delta Dental. Delta Dental also funded a propaganda curriculum under the guise of "civic engagement" at Allegheny College that sent college students home ready to campaign in their home towns for fluoridation in order to help the poor kids. Doubt Delta Dental told these college students that hundreds of fluoridation studies during their lifetime prove that fluoridation inteferes with their ability to learn, disrupts their hormones, and does more harm to teeth than good. 

 

See April 2016 letter to National Governors Association from consumer advocate Erin Brockovich, water consultant Bob Bowcock, and "elite" whistleblower lawyer Michael Kohn regarding the  propaganda efforts to politicize fluoridation in order to drown out the science: http://fluoridealert.org/wp-content/uploads/brockovich-2016.pdf

 "The plain fact that fluorine is an insidious poison, harmful, toxic and cumulative in its effects, even when ingested in minimal amounts, will remain unchanged no matter how may times it will be repeated in print that fluoridation of the water supply is 'safe'." - Ludwig Gross, MD, former Chief of Veterans' Administration Cancer Research and medical journalist

 

Geez - how much evidence does anyone need that fluoridation is harmful? There is no question that fluoride is an endocrine disruptor, even in "optimally" fluoridated water. There is a ton of evidence going back a hundred years proving it suppresses thyroid hormones, science which was reinforced in recent years. Now look at these latest studies. 

 

 

  • 2015 in Toxicology in Vitro. Fluoride as a factor initiating and potentiating inflammation in THP1 differentiated monocytes/macrophages.  Immune system inflammation means your body is stressed and could be overwhelmed, as well as worsening any inflammatory disease. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0887233315001605

 

  • 2016 in Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism. Timing of Environmental Exposures as a Critical Element in Breast Cancer Risk.  Fluoride is one of many EPA environmental toxins, and timing of exposure increases risk factor to breast cancer. Fluoride also reduces melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland. Melatonin protects against breast cancer. So, take away the protective hormones, add a little glyphosate here, a little fluoride there, and voila! Breast cancer!    http://press.endocrine.org/doi/abs/10.1210/jc.2015-2848#sthash.cKViKSuL.dpuf

 

Baby Boomers, we are being poisoned simply because there are paychecks and professional reputations dependent on fluoridation promotion. Big business and big pharma are funding fluoridation because their business model is at risk if fluoridation is criticized. But it is our health, our lives, and our grandchildren's lives at stake!  

 

Tell the AARP president to grow a spine and write an AARP resolution opposing fluoridation as being an ill advised policy that is harmful to many senior citizens! aarppresident@aarp.org
