Fluoride Poisoning: Is Our Government Poisoning Us?

Updated on March 11, 2013

Fluoride poisoning - are you concerned?

Nobody wants to think they've been poisoned by fluoride. The first reaction of many is to reject the information. I heard about this years ago but managed to block the information - a common first reaction to hearing our water supply could be dangerous.

If you're like me, you probably don't want to think our government (USA) could be systematically poisoning us intentionally. I still have a major problem with that idea. Let's call it denial.

Lots of people on the internet are concerned about fluoride in our water systems. Articles, videos, suffering people... it's all right here for study and perusal. If you haven't researched this yet, perhaps now is a good time. You may be exposing yourself and family members to fluoride in ways you don't suspect.

Approximately 66 percent of the USA has fluoridated public water and some bottled water is fluoridated as well. Only 2 percent of western Europe has public water fluoridation (mostly in the UK) and it has been reported that their children have teeth that are as healthy as those of children in the USA.

An example of bottled fluoridated water: Nursery Water - for babies. This is a purified water with fluoride added. This company claims that fluoride is perfectly safe, and even beneficial. They say it is approved by the American Dental Association, the United States Food and Drug Administration, the United States Public Health Department, and even the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Those complaining about fluoridated water say that fluoride is used in rat poison and other insecticides. They say it is a toxic by-product of industries such as the aluminum industry, phosphate fertilizer manufacturers, and others, and that rather than disposing of fluoride toxic waste, these industries are selling fluoride to the government to be put into our water.

So who is right? The citizens and doctors and dentists who warn against fluoride on websites and YouTube, or governmental and other agencies? Is it true that fluoride is an active ingredient in rat poison? Does your toothpaste tube really have a fluoride warning label on it? (Mine doesn't because I've been using fluoride-free natural toothpaste for a long time now.)

On top of all the other charges, anti-fluoridation activists say that sodium fluoride was first added to water by Hitler as it helped keep prisoners under control.

There's natural fluoride in most waters already, but our government adds the chemical fluoride from industrial waste. Fluoridation is intended to balance the amount of fluoride in the public water systems.

If you're trying to avoid fluoride, be aware that it is probably present in bottled and canned drinks, such as soft drinks, beers, even health-food and energy drinks when those drinks are manufactured in areas where there's fluoride in the public water system.

One more thing to be aware of - fluoride may be absorbed through the skin while bathing. You might want to look into getting a water purification unit for your shower head if you live in an area where the public water system contains fluoride.

Too much fluoride poisoning in our water!

News... January 7, 2011

In an unprecedented admission, the US government now says there's "too much" fluoride in our water. An ABC News article published January 7, 2011 states,

"In a remarkable turnabout, federal health officials say many Americans are now getting too much fluoride because of its presence not just in drinking water but in toothpaste, mouthwash and other products, and it's causing splotches on children's teeth and perhaps more serious problems. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced plans Friday to lower the recommended level of fluoride in drinking water for the first time in nearly 50 years, based on a fresh review of the science."

This is definitely a step in the right direction! How unusual! How needed!

Fluoride poisoning - what are the harmful effects?

Several scientific studies show that fluoride has adverse effects on the brain. It has been implicated as a cause of memory lapses, dementia, ADHD and autism. It is said to reduce IQ and has been named a cause of Altzheimer's Disease. It is linked not only to hypothyroidism, but also to hyperthyroidism, osteoporosis, skeletal fluorosis, kidney disease, and cancer.

It causes a condition of the teeth called dental fluorosis. Although fluoride proponents claim fluoride protects teeth from tooth decay, it actually damages them. In western Europe where fluoridated water was rejected, children's dental health is just as good as here in the USA.

Perhaps the most interesting side effect, it is said that fluoride affects a section of the brain that regulates our reactions to stressful circumstances, making human beings easier to control. This results in a docile population that might otherwise fight against injustice and oppression. This is why Hitler used it on concentration camp prisoners.

This is the most popular book about fluoridation at Amazon right now, though others are as highly rated as this one is. See the author of The Fluoride Deception in the following four videos.

Dr. Vyvyan Howard, a toxico-pathologist at the University of Liverpool in the UK, stated that this book "Must be regarded as essential reading...informative and thought-provoking."

Author Barry Groves writes that research has discovered that there are serious consequences of fluoridation including dementia, lowered IQ, kidney damage, thyroid damage, cancer, skeletal flurosis, osteoporosis, and even death. He has also refuted all arguments dental organizations have made in favor of fluoridation.

Dr. Rober Carlton, a former employee of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, stated, "Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time."


Why Americans aren't rioting about the condition of our government

...too much fluoridation!

A while back someone emailed me to ask why Americans aren't rioting! Here's what I told him:

Americans aren't rioting because we're too fluoridated. Fluoride was put into our water to control us, just as Hitler put it into the water of his prison camps.

Sixty-six percent of the water in the USA is fluoridated. I was fluoridated when I was a child in the SF Bay Area.

Fluoride is a lethal poison. Read your fluoride-filled toothpaste tube's warning label. It has killed children outright.

Then think about aspartame, chemtrails, and vaccinations.

Most Americans lost the war before they knew there was one.

Fluoride-Free Toothpaste

...poison for the American people!

When I was a child in the 1950s, all toothpaste was fluoride-free. When fluoridation started a few years later, a few toothpaste manufacturers started including fluoride in their formulas. We used Crest, and that was one of the last of the major-brand toothpastes to cave in and start using fluoride.

Now fluoride toothpastes must carry a warning label: "If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately." Children have died from ingesting fluoridated toothpaste.

Portland Oregon City Council vs. Anti-Fluoride Protesters - There will be a referendum in 2014.

Those in favor of fluoridation - Why would these sites be trying to get people to use fluoridated water?

Lots of people support fluoridation. Here are some of their statements.

Sites protesting fluoridation - Lots of people are protesting fluoridation of the public water supply.

Why should a government be adding anything to our water that doesn't really need to be there? If people want to take fluoride there are other ways to get it... and the rest of us who don't want fluoride should be able to refuse it. When it is in our water, we can't do that! Mass medication of the people is wrong.

What's your opinion? Is fluoride a poison or a necessity?

What is your opinion on fluoridation? Are you for it or against it?
