The United States government has finally lowered fluoride levels in drinking water for the first time in 50 years following research by Harvard and other institutions that high exposure to fluoride can lower your IQ and wreak havoc on your body.
It was around 3 years ago, after all, that the government actually backed the historic study by Harvard scientists on the subject of fluoride’s devastating effects on cognitive ability. As I detailed in July of 2012, authors published their conclusion online in the July 20th edition of the prominent journal Environmental Health Perspectives: a federal government medical journal stemming from the United States National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
In the research by Harvard, it is made even more explicitly clear just how toxic fluoride can be to the body. In a written statement, researchers state:
“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas.”
Three years later, and we’re now seeing action by the government. As The Guardian reports:
“The government is lowering the recommended amount of fluoride added to drinking water for the first time in more than 50 years…. Since 1962, the government has been advising water systems to add fluoride to a level of 0.7 parts per million for warmer climates, where people drink more water, to 1.2 parts per million in cooler areas. The new standard is 0.7 everywhere.”
While lower, these levels are still concerning. But with a possible ban on the horizon for Monsanto’s cancer-linked herbicides and top corporations being forced to remove dangerous additives from their products, perhaps fluoride may be next.

It’s time for FluorideGate hearings!
Why does the government protect fluoridation at all costs. Why didn’t the
HHS take advantage of this widely repeated story and put in their news release
some facts about fluoride that aren’t disputed and aren’t pretty and that most
people are ignorant to.
There is no debate between those for and against fluoridation that too much
fluoride can damage teeth and bones. Why isn’t HHS telling us what the safe
level to consume is per person. The concentration of fluoride in water is not
equal to the individual’s dose from all sources (water, food, beverages, dental
products, medicines, inhaled from air pollution, ocean mist, cold mist
humidifiers and showers).
Fluoride is in virtually all foods and beverages, mainly because
fluoridated water is used to make them or fluoride-containing pesticide residues
remain on some foods. Tea and tuna fish are examples of foods very high in
natural fluoride. See USDA’s Fluoride in Foods Database. And now that sulfuryl fluoride is being used as a post-harvest fumigant, even more fluoride residues will be on foods.
What about people who drink loads of water every day such as outdoor
workers, military, athletes, dieters, diabetics, and babies fed formula made
with tap water.
All infant foods whether concentrated or not, organic or not contain some
fluoride, when fluoridated water is added (even at 0.7 mg/L), it puts babies at
unnecessary risk of developing dental fluorosis without any benefits. See
former Assistant Secretary of Health’s statement advising parents not to
routinely use fluoridated water to make infant formula. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/738322
Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth. Consuming
a fluoride free diet does not cause tooth decay. Modern science proves that
ingesting fluoride is unnecessary and harmful. Fluoride hardens teeth by
topical application alone which means – put it on your teeth but never ever
Fluoride is useless to the toothless – including edentulous adults who
suffer fluoridation’s risks without any possible benefit but whose limited
income pays for fluoridation thru taxation and water bills.
The question is why is our government protecting fluoride at all costs and
covering up fluoride’s adverse health effects – including fluorosis which occurs
more often in minority populations who also have the most tooth decay.
Why does the government protect fluoridation at all costs? Fascism. The government is owned and controlled by big-money corporations.
So when are these so-called lower fluoride levels supposed to take effect? Or is this just a lot of talk with no action?
They don’t need the fluoride and GMOs to slow kill us anymore. Just look up to the sky almost every day and you can see the new and improved method for poisoning everyone – chemtrails.
What angers me greatly is that it affects my home garden as well, a garden that I took trouble for in getting seeds that are heirloom, non-GMO, not treated with pesticide, herbicide, fungicide, or other chemicals.
I notice that every time the chemtrails are particularly heavy, people here get bad respiratory problems.
Sad, lots of people are brainwashed that sodium fluoride is needed in our drinking water.
