So Why Are We Still Drinking Fluoride, Again?

fluoridewater1 263x164 So Why Are We Still Drinking Fluoride, Again?We know that over 20 studies, many of which come from prestigious organizations like Harvard and are published in federal government journals, have told us how sodium fluoride is crushing our IQ. We know that a major head at the National Cancer Institute revealed decades ago that fluoride was causing ‘cancer waves’ in the United States.

So, remind me again, why are we still drinking fluoride in our ‘clean’ tap water around the entire world?

As it turns out, it’s because Harvard and federal government journalists must all be wackjob conspiracy theorists! The peer-reviewed research warning that fluoride can cause permanent damage to unborn babies by affecting their neurological development is all a big conspiracy theory to the mainstream media. The sodium fluoride that is literally assaulting the brain in mega-high doses of 5,000 PPM in ‘prescription fluoride’ toothpaste being dished out by dentists who say their childhood patients are ‘deficient’ in the IQ-destroyer is perfectly safe in their eyes.

When analyzing the Harvard research, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, a component of the  United States National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, we find quite a few concerning details. The study makes it explicitly clear how damaging sodium fluoride can be, with writers explaining:

“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas.”

The EPA had similar statements, demonstrating how  fluoride displays “evidence of developmental neurotoxicity” and can damage unborn babies. We read:

”Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature.

Let’s go even further back to the research of Dr. Dean Burke, head scientist at the National Cancer Institute and author of over 250 scientific articles. Back in 1977, the decorated scientist spoke out against fluoride and brought it to the attention of the National Cancer Institute. At that time, Burke found that sodium fluoride was fueling the development of cancer cells and tumor growth — at the average level of 1 PPM. He estimated that around 10,000 had died from the fluoride-induced cancer from that level.

As I detail in the video below, now we see levels as high as 5,000 PPM in toothpaste, 500,000% higher than the water fluoridation levels Burke was examining:

I guess no one told the media that even the United States government called for lower fluoride levels after a mountain of research accumulated regarding these links. They must be conspiracy theorists too.

The fact is that the fluoride debate hits a brick wall thanks to the rhetoric the mainstream media and laughable ‘skeptics’ use by throwing around terms like ‘conspiracy theory’ to discredit any real debate. In fact, it’s actually working against them. Right now we have so many conscious citizens realizing that they don’t want to consume the tainted tap that it’s really considered outlandish in many areas to drink from the tap without at least a fluoride-removing filter of some kind. A lot has changed as more information comes out.

We’ve seen a push for fluoride bans around the world, from Australia’s Queensland to regions within Florida. And the movement has been heating up.

But still, how could we possibly allow this fluoridation to go on for as long as it has? Even if there was only some research indicating an issue, isn’t it enough to begin withdrawing it from the water — or at least enough to conduct more independent research? I think any reasonable person would agree the answer is yes.

It’s time to accelerate this issue from a tired debate of ‘conspiracy’ theory name-calling to a topical issue we can generate a victory for. We’ve done it for GMOs; we’ve done it for high-fructose corn syrup; we’ve done it for BPA. It’s time to blast this information into the stratosphere and demand action.

    People need to organize in their own communities, petition, call, write and visit their local legislators and demand they stop adding unnecessary, health-robbing, money-wasting fluoride chemicals into the water supply. And if it is not added to your personal water supply, it is being added to the water used to make foods purchased in supermarkets and restaurants. So get your message out to your state representatives to get them to stop their State Health Departments from endorsing, promoting, defending and funding water fluoridation schemes.

    Social media helps in general. But specific locations must use the old-fashioned way of giving our flyers, petitioning, speaking before community groups, etc. to get the local people, who don't even know they need to research fluoride, aware that there's a toxin in the water that is purposely added. And that there's an easy solution – just turn the spigot or push the "off" button.

    We've seen instances where legislators have voted to stop fluoridation and then were intimidated by local dentists and health departments to reverse that decision. When no constituents show up outraged about fluoridation, legislators will keep the status quo to keep their jobs. Legislators need to know you have their backs when they vote out fluoridation.

    I, too, suggest an email link to forward your info to others.

  • Beverly Shank

    I don't see an option to forward this by email. Why not?

    • Jude55wastingaway

      Yes, I would like an email thingy to spread the word and your site.

    Watched "conservatives" and "liberals" both laughing and joking about flouride on Morning Joe today and had to turn it off. Amazing…and tragic.

  • George

    Calgary City Canada was to remove flouride by Jan this year. Still waiting for this to happen.

    It is not much advertized that most countries in Europe have long ago prohibited fluoride addition to tapwater/ have never added any. Interestingly their tooth decay rates have decreased the same way they did in the US.

  • Brian

    Florida started again with fluoride on the gulf coast.

    Great article! yes, we need to take drastic action as soon as possible. Recently in Adelaide (South Australia), one of our politicians who opposes fluoridation has been branded a quack by our one and only SA printed newspaper (the Advertiser) journalist in a personal attack in her column. With wide enough readership/audience within the state it is enough to defame politician's reputation. In addition, one of our researchers (on dental caries) at the University of Adelaide has been very vocal on the subject and actively promoted the "benefits" of fluoridation and basically said that this is the best thing that has ever happened in South Australia with his (and the NHMRC's) skewed research results.

    For quite a bit of my childhood we had well water. It's basically the same water that the next town over was pumping out of their well and fluorinating. I'm not sure why the water was deemed safe for us to drink without the fluoride, but not for the masses at the municipality next to us.

      say it louder!

  • Susan Lea

    Thank you for continuing the fight in light of the number of new big cities adding fluoride to municipal water in recent years, from San Diego, CA to Portland, OR despite clear proof of the ineffectiveness of fluoride. Again, the rich can buy purified water and organic food. The fluoridosis of water is meant to attack and destroy the poor and ignorant, increasing the size of the ignorant and preventing this large mass from effectively participating in society.

      For further proof of the additional deaths and serious health problems caused by fluoride, see the following report.

      A scientific report published last month shows how premature death and health inequalities are far greater for all ages in the fluoridated Republic of Ireland (ROI) compared to unfluoridated Northern Ireland (NI) or other European countries.

      In each of the disease categories a highly significant increased burden of disease
      has been recorded for ROI with the most pronounced variation being
      early onset dementia (450%), followed by sudden infant death syndrome (300%),
      sarcoidosis (250%), congenital hypothyroidism (220%), osteoporosis (100%) Downs
      syndrome (83%), depression (78%), rheumatoid arthritis (60%), diabetes (60%) and
      cancer where significant increased risk for a wide range of cancers are to be found
      in ROI compared to non-fluoridated NI and Europe.

      Overall cancers incidence was significantly higher in fluoridated ROI compared to
      non-fluoridated NI.
