No conspiracy then why are dentists poisoning us?

Dangers of Dentistry

Conspiracy theorists believe there is a population reduction plan being put into practice with the masses being gradually weakened and killed off by several sinister means, one of which being the deliberate poisoning of foods, drink and medicines with a range of dangerous toxins including aspartame and fluoride. As well as conspiracy theorists, those who study politics and social science are also convinced that a "dumbing down" of the people has been taking place and neurotoxins that damage brain function and poisons like fluoride can be one way used to achieve this.

So I ask myself why are dentists commonly still prescribing fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes, and indeed, why are the shelves of pharmacies filled with dental products containing this harmful element? Why is it increasingly added to public water supplies despite campaigns against this and loads of evidence that it endangers health rather than benefits us?

Aspartame

Aspartame
Aspartame

Used by the Nazis

Fluoride was used by the Nazis for two purposes - to make their victims more easy to control and to cause them to be infertile and sterile. This is all documented.

Most of us have amalgam fillings, or had them if we can afford to have them removed, and many dentists still use this material which contains mercury, which is a very dangerous element. This is not new knowledge that mercury is a danger to health so why was it ever put into our teeth in the first place?

Next we come to antibiotics, and the very term means "against life," and these substances are becoming more and more toxic as I recently found out when I was prescribed Augmentine 875 and refused to take it. I did a bit of research online and found side effects range from diarrhoea, nausea and headaches to insomnia and hyperactivity, depression and anxiety, blood in the stools and jaundice even. It was enough to make me depressed and anxious just thinking about taking that stuff and I read reports by people who have used it saying "never again."

I was given a mouthwash and although I am reluctantly using it , one look at the ingredients was enough to set off alarm bells. Perio Aid has its main ingredient as water but the second substance that there is most of as an ingredient is propylene glycol, which is a form of antifreeze. Then there is Hydrogenated Castor Oil. Google "hydrogenated oils" and you will find them defined as "silent killers." Next, there are the artificial sweeteners Sodium Saccharin and Potassium Acesulfame, and again there is plenty of evidence against these substances as being potentially harmful.

Having argued that I wouldn't take the Augmentine, I asked for a different antibiotic and suggested Metronidazole or Flagyl as it is also known, which I have been given years ago in the UK, however, instead of being given this I was given a prescription for Clamoxyl. The receptionist told me that my new prescription was ready and that it was what I had asked for. It wasn't!

Well, it's not as bad as Augmentine I thought, because it is only the synthetic Penicillin known as Amoxcyllin. Naively I went to the chemist and bought a packet but when I looked at the ingredients I was horrified and realised I am back to square one. Clamoxyl contains Aspartame, a horrible neurotoxin that I have successfully avoided for many years after giving it up long ago when I became convinced it was a poison. I have to live with "floaters" in my sight and that is one of very many dangers to the body that this artificial sweetener can cause.

My son, who is an epileptic, once had 13 fits the same day after he had unwisely used body-building powder containing the toxic muck.Some years ago I lost a good friend, who died from a brain tumour. He used to drink Diet-Coke containing Aspartame because he was diabetic. Brain tumours are one of the most serious dangers from the substance!

I had an exposé report I wrote on the subject of the dangers of Aspartame published in Tenerife News some while back so am hardly likely to want to take a tablet containing it three times a day for a week.

The immediate question that comes to my mind is why is there an artificial sweetener, and a very harmful one at that, in a tablet that you swallow? Why couldn't the Big Pharma company GlaxoSmithKline, who make the stuff, make it without adding that dangerous additive?

If all that wasn't worrying enough there is also the danger, admittedly slight, from cumulative exposure to dental X-rays. I have just had five. If I decide I cannot go on with the new dentist I have and want to go elsewhere they will want to take more X-rays. Sadly I am in a no win situation it appears.

I now have to tell the dentist I am refusing her new prescription too. Some people have told me that it is easy enough to go along and get treated at a dentist but I am finding it anything but. It is more like a battle against someone who is being paid to poison me, and definite evidence, not that I needed any, that we are being poisoned by the pharmaceutical industry that sells it poisons to the doctors, dentists and chemists of the world.

Update: When I went back the dentist said a senior colleague had looked at my X-rays and thought the best course of treatement was for me to have 14 extractions in readiness for dentures. I was also advised that I would need a course of antibiotics before this. I refused the treatment and asked could she descale my teeth instead of all the rest of it and leave it at that. My response did not go down well but eventually this was agreed on and done, although I had to sign a waiver that was drafted confirming that I was refusing the recommended treatment. I have not been back and am battling onward with several loose teeth and one cavity in a back tooth that does cause me problems at times but I would rather this than submit to antibiotic poisoning and multiple extractions.

Update written over a year later (December 2010): I had two teeth extracted and was given painkillers and antibiotics to take for a week but I threw the prescriptions away. It all healed up fine and I have not been back. Yes, I still have some loose teeth and broken ones but I do not get any pain or inflammation so see no need for any treatment. If I had listened to the recommendations I would have had a lot of teeth pulled, been coping with dentures since and would have been given lots more painkillers and antibiotics, plus it would have cost a lot of money! Draw your own conclusions from that!

Bard of Ely, I see your point, though I seriously doubt that your dentist is aware of being part of the conspiracy.

I wonder if the low-fat food diet fad was also a part of the same plan to poison people. It certainly did lead to obesity, diabetes and early death for many people. But was it planned that way? Sometimes it is hard to tell which professionals are malevolent and which are just plain stupid.

Bard of Ely 7 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

I am sure the dentist is not aware of being part of any conspiracy but if you read up on the history of Aspartame you will find it should never have been approved and what's more the Monsanto company who are responsible for many threats to life and the environment marketed it as Nutrasweet. The diet drinks and foods are all part of the danger and contain Aspartame. I personally find it very worrying knowing that daily millions of people buy this muck not realising what they are doing and then the shops stock more.

Hi Bard, Good one. One problem about getting good info about this kind of thing anymore, is that (gulp) you can't trust many of the Medical Journals. Companies like Monsanto and Big Pharma -- and the holding companies that own them -- have taking to purchasing major scientific journals, and installing editors favourable toward their own business interests.

If that's not a conspiracy, I don't know what is!

Well, Chris, I think it has to do with this being a global operation and a covert one at that that is not obvious and cannot be easily proven so if someone gets very sick or dies it can be argued that it was due to other causes and not because of aspartame, fluoride, mercury, or whatever. The point being, that these substances badly weaken the immune systems and contribute to death and disease. Also, and important to the controllers, fluoride especially makes people docile and easy to control. This I would say can be seen with the way people in large numbers just go along with all this crap. Talking to people I know here about this they say well, I'd just take the stuff. To say I don't want it is not the 'normal' response, however, maybe if I had been exposed to fluoride as much as many people have I wouldn't see any problem here! To refuse these treatments causes more problems for me - it is not an easy option but it should be. Most people have no problem with Diet drinks and foods. I know plenty who carry on with consuming these things even though I have said what I think about the matter. And no, I don't preach but in a social setting people ask me why I turn things down. I got asked yesterday why I wouldn't drink Magners cider. I showed them on the bottle it contained sweeteners and sulphites. I don't want sweeteners or sulphites, the latter of which causes asthma. I also have seen at least one person lose his life after using aspartame on a regular basis and I know I have floaters which are among bad effects of the stuff. And that's what I mean, I can't prove my sight is messed up because of aspartame or that my friend got a brain tumour because of it. But on top of all that I look around and I see growing numbers of people with serious illnesses of many types that were very rare years ago before all this crap was in the food and drink - and rich and famous people die from all these illnesses too! Hardly a day passes without news of some celebrity fighting cancer or dying from it. It didn't used to be like this!

Why can't we have foods, drinks and medicines without poisons added to them that never used to be in such things? Why do we need a sweetener of any type in a tablet you swallow? Where is the logic in that if it is not a deliberate attempt to poison people?

You see, I could do better than GlaxoSmithKline - I could make a tablet without sweetener and just with the antibiotic. I could make a mouthwash without antifreeze and hydrogenated oil and artificial sweetener in it. If I can why can't they?

The fact that Hitler came up with fluoridating water to help him gain control makes me very worried that it is happening in my city along with most others. To buy the filters to get rid of fluoride is very expensive. I avoid fluoridated toothpaste. Have you heard of nursery water. It is for babies and has fluoride. Babies don't even have teeth for crying out loud. It seems like the governments use fluoride as a way to get rid of the harmful excess left over from production. I wish had my own well. That way I'm not the filter. I do my best to avoid artificial sweeteners but it is in everything. Jones soda makes some great products using cane sugar. I buy that for my kids because obviously they are going to want soda. People buy diet soda thinking it is healthier but have no idea. I had an eye infection a few times and found that honey mixed in warm water worked a lot faster than the steroids I was prescribed in the past. Honey is the best antibiotic out there. The drug resistant super bugs we have created by prescribing antibiotics like candy are actually only killed by honey. Great hub. It seems pretty hard to stay healthy today. Processed foods can be sold for a higher profit and that seems to be the bottom line.

As always, Bard, great hub. I especially appreciate the recent points you've brought up in recent hubs about "conspiracy" being used as a synonym for nut job or wrong, which is a shame because anyone who has studied even "accepted" history can see that often times conspiracies are true (Gulf of Tonkin, Tuskegee experiments, overthrow of Hawaii, Bay of Pigs are a few that come to mind out of hundreds), so why is it so hard to believe that the powers that be might be lying to us? There's been thousands of years of history saying that's exactly what's going on!

But I digress. Great hub, and these are the same reasons I won't take anything stronger than an aspirin ever, and I even try to avoid that when possible. Thanks for the great hub, and keep them coming!

Thank you, Jerry! I agree with all you say there - yes, the term "conspiracy theory" has been made by the media to be associated with madness and cranks and people who are not all there when the very opposite is the case and all the leading conspiracy theorists are all brilliant minds and dedicated researchers who are not afraid of what people think!


Writer Rider 7 years ago

Very interesting hub, Bard. Great stuff. I don't know about that conspiracy, but I know at least our government knows a lot of things they're not telling us. They didn't tell us about the lack of evidence for WMDs, for example. Just why, well, I think that's another conspiracy that I know nothing about. I have a hard time believing they're doing it through chemicals, however. Could be wrong, I'll wait and see. I've stopped consuming aspartame, by the way, and I try not to consume hydrogenated oils anyway.

Thanks, Writer Rider! The point is that it doesn't matter whether its the governments or someone else, it is nevertheless being done! In conspiracy theory the who get called the Elite, the Cabal, the Illuminati and the Shadow Government. What I am saying is that it is happening, it is known about by the authorities and it is global!

I'm sorry this is going so badly for you but I'm not shocked or anything. I've decided the best way to stay healthy is to stay poor, because the minute you have a bit of money, Big Pharma and the insurance companies decide you need a whole buttload of drugs that are terrible for you--Geez, it's dangerous walking in the door, no kidding! This is "health care"? LOL! I think not!

I feel bad for you though because we do need teeth, and it can be so painful, having dental problems. I feel for you Steve. I hope it gets better somehow, though I don't know how. Good luck.

I know who the illuminati are, Bard, I've read some stuff online about them. At my age, I'm in my thirties, I'm still shocked about some of the things I've learned regarding the reality of the world so you may be right. Lord knows if we knew everything the government did, we might lose trust and respect for it completely. I certainly agree about the dumbing down, that's the real reason U.S public schools are failing the intercity students...they don't want them to rise above their circumstances-they'll lose money.

Hi friend. Drugs are syndromes in capsules. That mean that the capsule will make different things to your body(wanted effects and not wanted effects). That is some of the first things that pharmacologist teach us in dental school. That is not a mystery to us. The only reason I will prescribe a drug to a patient is because the benefits of taking it outweigh the side effects. If the side outweigh the benefits ,the physician or dentist should not prescribe that drug.

But I guess that is just like everything in life. Every decision you make has good outcomes and bad outcomes. If not,tell me the secret. LOL.

Drugs has good outcome and bad outcome. For a HIV (+) patient, drugs has made possible for them to live longer. The same goes with high blood pressure and diabetes. Sometimes the decision that has to be made is: longer life with side effects of drugs, or no drugs and shorter life.

Mercury. Dental amalgams release mercury. So if you have those in your mouth, that is happening in your mouth. However the quantities released are very minimal and do not present a health risk to patients. The only people at risk of high exposure are dentist and dental staff. We do have ways to reduce that risk. However if you are still worrying about, you still have the option to change them to composite resin. But the thing is, before removing dental amalgam, you need to remember that salmon and tuna fish has higher levels of mercury.

Fluoride- the same argument here. Benefit outweigh the side effects. However there are new products in dentistry as MI Paste which are fluoride free(and some people say that it 100% better that flouride). I had never use them, but I am planning to do some research about it for the benefit of my patients. So if fluoride scares you, there are still options for you.

Conspiracy Theory? Well I have to tell you that it may have elements of truth. But I swear by God that I am not part of that. LOL. I am not the Lawyer of pharmaceutical business. They had made themselves some bad reputation for doing unethical things. In that aspect I am on your side. Money make many people evil.

Well friend that's my humble opinion regarding the subject. You as patient have the right of being inform by your physicians about everything(drugs, side effect, possible outcomes). Ask them question until you have peace of mind. If not, go for a second opinion.

I recommend you a book: The Natural Pharmacy by Alan R. Gaby, MD. Which is a reference to natural treatments for common health conditions. If you like the natural remedies, this may be helpful.

(English is not my first language so i please ask you to forgive me for my grammatical errors. I feel some type of shame for that.)

Correcting an error:

where it says: "If the side outweigh the benefits ,the physician or dentist should not prescribe that drug."

It should say:

" If the side effects outweigh the benefits ,the physician or dentist should not prescribe that drug. "

Sorry for that

Bard of Ely 7 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback, Dentist83!

The pharmaceutical companies make the drugs and dental products so it is these companies that put aspartame in a drug and harmful ingredients in a mouthwash. My argument is that they do not have to and should not and that they could make the same products minus these toxins!

As for mercury - yes, I am well aware it is in fish we eat and accumulative so we are getting it from more than one source. Again I would point out that filling materials can be made without it in, as you have pointed out, so the mercury should never have gone in the amalgam fillings to begin with!

Fluoride too we are getting far too much of with it being in the public water supplies and in the majority of dental products such as toothpastes, mouthwash and even on some brands of floss. It is a poison. The public are not being given much of an option not to consume it! The public are being encouraged to consume more!

Thanks for posting this great hub Bard. I agree with you fully about the dangers of aspartame and amalgam fillings. I am not a fan of Big Pharma and have vented ad nauseam here on hubpages.

My advice - don't drink or eat diet products with aspartame and have your ancient mercury fillings replaced with the new, safer materials. You'll have to replace your fillings anyway when you get over 50 because they start to crack.

I've had good dentists and bad dentists and believe me the good ones are savvy when it comes to the above mentioned concerns. They have modern low-dose ex-ray equipment and they're issuing fewer fluoride products; even cutting out the antibiotics so widely recommended by doctors for anyone with the slightest heart murmur.

One thing I have learned through research in my profession is that neglected teeth and gums lead to many other illnesses including heart disease. Just do your homework, find a qualified practitioner, take herbal and homeopathic meds in non-emergencies, and above all - don't neglect your teeth!

Steve, your concerns about these toxic materials used by dentistry for the past several decades are completely valid. When my daughter "needed" sealants - according to her dentist - I worked with the dentist's assistant and the sealant manufacturer to make certain there were no BPAs in the sealant material they were planning to use.

Due to the long-term health hazards of fluoride, I stopped using fluoride toothpaste several years ago and began using a GREAT non-fluoride alternative manufactured by Tom's of Maine. After making the switch, I was actually told by my dentist that I was the only client he has ever had whose gums don't bleed when probed in the routine dental exam!!

Look for a huggins or bio dentist - these doctors have the knowledge to bring health to your mouth - not poisons. Also, instead of antibiotics, take oregano oil and probiotics to fight infections and build rather than kill your immune system. I myself spent all my money to replace all my amalgam fillings and can tell you there is a remarkable difference in my health since doing so. Mother Nature did not create us with metal teeth but since our mineral supply in foods is lacking our teeth suffer needlessly. I use an herbal non flouride toothpaste, do indian oilpulling and rinse with himalayan salt water instead of mouthwash. You must not give your money or time to corporations to take care of you health. Make your own remedies, there is lots of info on the internet these days... and stay away from those who think the system is here to help us.

Very informative hub thank you and I'm pleased you are highlighting these matters as a lot of people simply don't realise the dangers of what we are consuming.

I've never used mouthwash as they idea of swilling all those chemicals around my mouth makes me cringe! I try and avoid Aspartame at all costs too and was shocked to find it in a packet of crisps the other day. They like to use the "Sugar Free" lie (yes but it's packed with artifical sweetener instead!) I haven't drank fizzy pop for over three years as it used to make me feel intensely ill and since cutting it out I have never felt so great!

It is best to check all ingredients in food as not everyone has our best intentions at heart. I worry why there is Flouride in drinking water with the excuse that it is for our dental health, even though it passes our teeth and goes straight to our digestive system =/ You are very wise to avoid these things instead of blindly denying that nothing could possibly be bad for us.

Thankyou for making people more aware of these issues as they need to be brought to light.
