Water Fluoridation: Is it Hurting You and Your Loved Ones?
Many of you have probably heard it touted that fluoride is great for your teeth, right? And the whole purpose of water fluoridation is said to be to prevent cavities. Since they are putting it in the water, it should be good for everyone, right? It should be safe too…. Well, the American Dental Association’s website says that “Fluoride in Water is Safe and it Works”. While the latter is certainly True (i.e. “it works”), it is important to look at the former claim (i.e. its safety) from a wider and proper perspective.
For those of you in a rush, I recommend that you get yourself into an objective mindset and watch the documentary, “Fluoride: Poison on Tap”. (If the link doesn’t work, just search for it on YouTube.) Those of you with a bit more time, skim the bolded sections here. And all others, read with fervour! Remember, in order to break free from the bonds of Ignorance, you must open your mind to the possibility that everything you know may not be what it seems. As they say: “Knowledge is Power”…so empower yourself, lest you fall victim to the Power/Knowledge of others. It must be said that there is everything to gain for entertaining a belief system contrary to your current one, if not for the simple benefit of having a well-rounded perspective and reaffirming that the beliefs you already have still apply to you in the present moment. Or perhaps you may find that a change in belief is necessary or even vital!
Fluoride the Danger We Must Avoid
I will keep this article straight and to the point and will share with you the findings of the 2012 publication by H. Bălan, Associate Professor at Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania. His extensive study is titled: “Fluoride--the Danger that We Must Avoid”. His research is well-sourced and contains many citations by official organizations such as the EPA, the Department of Health of New Jersey, the National Research Council, and the National Cancer Institute. Here is what his research says about fluoride:
- The more fluoridated water one drinks, the more cavities that appeared in the teeth
- it’s a cumulative poison meaning that it builds up in the system to ever-toxic levels
- it is associated with an increased rate of bone fractures in the arms, legs, and hips
- it causes Osteoarthritis (“old age” and “wear-and-tear” arthritis)
- it interferes with brain function, is toxic to the brain and nerves, & fluoride lowers IQ
- it causes difficulty with concentration and memory
- it crosses the blood brain barrier and easily binds in the blood with aluminum (which is also commonly added to water). This fluoroaluminum compound is damaging to the kidneys and gradually leads to Alzheimer’s in the brain at only 1 part per million!!! (1ppm = 1 milligram of a substance in 1 liter of water)
- fluoride and its chemical compounds cause cancer
- it’s a mutagen and accumulates in bones
- it damages the vital mucus lining of the GI tract
- it causes birth defects and perinatal deaths (aka miscarriages)
- areas with fluoridated water have a 30% increase in the rate of Down’s Syndrome
- it suppresses thyroid function on its own and especially if one is low in iodine
- fluoride compounds are toxic waste byproducts from aluminum/fertilizer plants
So let us put this into common English here. This vast study shows that Fluorine and its compounds such as fluoride are toxic, accumulate in the body’s tissues, and are linked to:
FLUORIDE IS A CUMULATIVE TOXIN
Brittle Bones: Cavities, Hip Fractures, Osteopenia/ Osteoporosis
Brain/Nerve Toxicity: Alzheimer’s, lower IQ, poor concentration
Thyroid Toxicity: Hypothyroid, Hyperthyroid, Hashimoto’s
Gene Toxicity: Miscarriage, Down’s Syndrome, Cancer
Kidney Toxicity: Diabetes, Kidney disease, Kidney Stones
So if it is really this bad, why is it being put into our water? For those of you who watched the documentary above, you will know that it all began after the fluoride based waste products from fertilizer mining and processing operations were banned from being dumped into rivers and water systems nearby the fertilizer and aluminum plants. Since this is a very expensive substance of which to properly and safely dispose, the mega-company ALCOA hired a genius marketer to devise some studies to show the safety of water fluoridation as a cavity-preventing substance. While this may be true as stated in the original study, the True reason why the people had no cavities in their teeth was because their teeth had fallen out! They didn’t have any chance to develop cavities because they had no teeth. What better marketing plan could there be? Make the people believe that it is safe by showing them a false perspective about fluoride and then they have cities pay them to dispose of their toxic waste!
The Big Lie
The infamous Adolf Hitler is commonly stated as saying: “If you tell a lie long enough and loud enough, the people will believe it.” In everything, we must be wary of falling prey to Falsehood and must train and educate our mind to find the One Truth or at least a more complete truth on our journey toward the One Truth. With all this in mind, we must ask ourselves:
WHY IS WATER FLUORIDATION STILL BEING DONE?
I entreat you to see that Fluoride might actually be one of, if not, THE source cause of your non-perfect health and continual decline with age. Remember “aging” is only the accumulated errors resulting from your body’s inability to fully and completely repair itself in an efficient manner. This process of degradation can be slowed by an all-around healthy lifestyle or quickened by a toxic lifestyle and/or environment.
For those of you who proudly say: “I’ve been drinking fluoridated water for decades and I’m fine!” You may find a better body & mind and a higher quality of life by taking heed of the information in this article and recognizing the threats that fluoride poses to you directly.
What do we do about it?
Well fortunately there are a few important things that can be done to detox the body and reduce your fluoride exposure. The most important thing to do would be to ban the addition of fluoride to city water and since we all know how slow bureaucracy is, we cannot rely upon the city, state, or federal government to do what is best for us. So we must, yet again, pay more money and purchase fluoride filters for your home. Your regular Brita or Berkey filter won’t cut it. You need a filter specifically designed to remove fluoride and unfortunately, many brands claim to remove fluoride, but don’t. Rely upon reviews and get something that is tried and true and remember, in this case, more expensive is not always better.
Getting a whole house fluoride filter is the best option to reduce fluoride exposure for those who can afford it. If that is outside your budget, I at least suggest getting a shower filter and a sink filter for drinking water. Those of you who drink certified fluoride-free spring water or reverse-osmosis may be fortunate to dodge some of the GI specific effects of fluoride, but this is not enough. If your shower and bath water is still fluoridated, you’re getting dosed up the wazoo since fluoride absorbs readily through the skin. Also don’t forget about any edible plants you may be growing. Don't fluoridate them. Plants concentrate fluoride too. Reducing exposure to toxins is the first and most critical step to turning your body back to health.
FIRST: Reduce your Exposure to Fluoride
NEXT: Detox Fluoride from your Body
While it the American Dental Association celebrates 72 years of water fluoridation this year, I hope that, after reading this article, you can see that this is really not something to celebrate at all. It is something about which we all should be appalled and work to rectify. While it is a sobering fact that over 2/3rds of the US population is supplied with fluoridated water, at least you know that you can fight back and reclaim your body and especially your mind from the devastating effects of the cavity-inducing fluoride.
