Fluoride: America's Drug of Choice
Adolf Hitler once said, “Tell a lie loud enough and long enough and people will believe it.” That ideal has been embraced by thousands of individuals associated with big business, as well as governments, in the seven decades since Hitler's rise to power. As we are all well aware, lies and deceit perpetrated upon the masses by those in power, never lead to anything good for those on the receiving end.
The monumental lie: Fluoride is good for human beings!
The real truth is that fluoride is a killer which leads to a slow, painful process of dying. You might wonder what benefit might come out of poisoning an entire nation, for those accused of the deception. You might feel inclined to believe that there could possibly be no benefit, at least for a government to be involved in such a duplicitous plot. On the surface, you're right. It doesn't make sense....until you take into consideration that monetary greed or complete power over the masses have been the culprit of most heinous crimes throughout history. Governments are only as honorable as the men and women filling the roles within.
The fluoride story began 77 years ago. Interessen Gemeinschaft Farben (IG Farben), a German chemical manufacturing company, began borrowing from American banks in a concerted effort at building a huge cartel in 1924. Henry Ford and American Standard Oil Company merged their assets with IG Farben in 1928, and by the early 1930's, more than one hundred American corporations were involved with IG Farben through subsidiaries and other interests maintained in Germany.
American IG Farben was a holding company which controlled IG Farben assets in America. The board of directors listed such men as Edsel Ford (President of Ford Motor Company), Charles E. Mitchell (President of the Rockefellers' National City Bank of New York), Walter Teagle (President of Standard Oil, New York), and Paul Warberg (Chairman of the Federal Reserve) who was brother to Max Warberg. Max was the financier of the German War effort. Also on the board of directors was Herman Metz, a director of the Bank of Manhattan which was controlled by the Warbergs. Three other members on the board of directors for American IG Farben were convicted as German war criminals for their crimes against humanity.
In 1939, the world's largest producer of sodium fluoride was American Aluminum Company (ALCOA). During the same year, ALCOA and the Dow Chemical Company transferred their technology to Germany. Eventually, such companies as Colgate, Dupont, Procter & Gamble (Crest toothpaste) and Kellogg, as well as many other American companies, signed cartel agreements with IG Farben which led to the formation of a very powerful lobby group.
It was also in 1939 that the myth associated with fluoride and its ability to prevent dental caries was born. Up until then, fluoride was nothing more than toxic waste associated with the manufacture of explosives and fertilizers, in addition to being a waste component associated with the making of atomic bombs. Proper disposal of the toxic waste was expensive and becoming a problem for the American Aluminum Manufacturing, Fertilizer and Weapons industry. Not surprisingly, it was ALCOA scientist, Gerald J. Cox who, after doing some studies on fluoridated rats, concluded that fluoride was good for preventing cavities in human teeth.
Prior to Gerald J. Cox's determination, Trendley Dean, a Public Health Service scientist who was also the first director of the National Institute of Dental Research, had gone west to investigate a discovery that fluoride was causing tooth mottling. The person holding authority over the Public Health Service (PHS) was none other than Andrew Mellon who had founded and was the controlling shareholder of ALCOA. The mission Dean was sent on was to determine just how much fluoride could be absorbed by children's teeth before they disintegrated.
Dean examined the water of 345 Texas communities where naturally occurring fluoridation from soil might be an issue. His studies concluded that though the teeth were mottled and brown, the incidence of cavities seemed to be less than in those not exposed to fluoride. With very little to back up his theories, ALCOA founder Andrew Mellon jumped at the opportunity to solve the fluoride waste problem created by the aluminum industry and make a tidy profit at the same time, by selling the waste to the US Government as beneficial for water treatment.
During this time in 1939, the military program known as the Manhattan Project was embarked upon. The project was aimed at discovering and manufacturing fissionable materials for use in the Atomic Bomb. According to declassified Manhattan Project papers, fluoride was a key chemical in the production of atomic bombs. Millions of tons of fluoride were required for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium in bombs during the Cold War era.
As it is one of the most toxic chemicals known, it didn't take long for complaints of fluoride poisoning among those employed by defense contractors, to threaten the continuance of the project. The program's military leaders placed a demand on program scientists to provide evidence that fluoride was good for humans and the environment. This evidence could then be used in litigation prompted by accusations of poisoning.
Dr. Mullenix - Dangers of Fluoride Lecture
The story takes an even more evil turn when the end of WWII comes to a close. Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, and pathology was sent by the US government to take charge of the Farben chemical plants populating Germany. German scientists employed in the plants relayed information of a scheme embarked upon by the Nazi government. An attempt to control the population through medication of public drinking water with sodium fluoride had been undertaken. The practice had been used in both German and Russian prisoner of war camps in an effort to make prisoners “stupid and docile.”
During the war, plans for implementation in occupied countries were expanded upon by Farben because it had been discovered that fluoridation caused a small amount of damage to a specific area of the brain. They claimed that such damage made it more difficult for affected persons to defend their freedom while making them more docile and accepting of authority. ALCOA and the US military had a common goal; convincing an unsuspecting public of benefits provided by fluoride.
Though proponents of fluoridated drinking water have always dismissed these stories of German mind control attempts as trash, there are some interesting facts which support the notion that fluoride is useful in doing just that. Semap, one of the strongest anti-psychotic compounds presently known is a fluoride compound, and used in more than 25% of manufactured tranquilizers. In fact, there is a long list of pharmaceuticals that are fluorinated, many of them designed to control emotions such as the drugs Paxil, Prozac, and Haldol.
Effectively killing two birds with one stone, the US government embarked on a mission that would solve the issue of fluoride waste disposal while furthering research on the possible side effects which would enable mind control of an entire population. Because of the sensitive nature of the information regarding fluoride use in atomic bomb production, the military stamped all their documents as classified, thereby hiding the truth of the dangers.
Enter Edward L. Bernays, the nephew of Dr. Sigmund Freud, who had conducted experiments on manipulation of public opinion by appealing to, and attempting to influence, the unconscious mind. Funded by industrialists, Bernays began a campaign to persuade public opinion to accept fluoride as beneficial. Bernays maintained, “You can get practically any idea accepted if doctors are in favor. The public is willing to accept it because a doctor is an authority to most people regardless of how much he knows or doesn't know.” Most doctors were not aware of fluoride's dangers because information was suppressed in favor of “national security.”
Dr. Harold C. Hodge was the toxicologist for the Manhattan Project during the Cold War He is credited with being the main cheerleader for fluoridation of public drinking water, but he covertly conducted one of the first water fluoridation experiments in Newburgh, New York, where he studied biological samples from the citizens at his US backed lab at the University of Rochester. There is no law against suppression of scientific data, so when his study was completed, the only information made public was that which indicated fluoride might be safe in small doses.
In a letter dated May 5, 1999 to BSE, a contractor for the US Army Medical Command (MEDCOM), Dr. Phyliss Mullenix responded to a request for information on drinking water fluoridation. After outlining her credentials, the numerous studies conducted as well as findings, Dr. Mullenix wrote, “In summary, my opinion is that there are no advantages to water fluoridation. The risks today far exceed the hoped for benefit. Dr. hodge during the Manhattan Project requested funds from Col. Stafford L. Warren to do animal experimentation to determine central nervous system effects of fluoride. He did so because he had clinical evidence that the fluoride component of uranium hexafluoride causes 'mental confusion, drowsiness, and lassitude among workmen. Yet he never got to do those studies, and because this information was classified, he never discussed his findings with me. Perhaps, however, this explains why he was so intensely interested in my fluoride studies up to the time of his death.”
She went on to write, “Therefore, in good conscience I can only discourage the notion of fluoridating the water supply of Fort Detrick. The evidence against the safety of this public health policy will keep mounting and never disappear again. My ignorance of fluoride in the beginning was a matter of chance. If you ignore this evidence today, it will be a matter of choice....”

Remember Eliot Perkins? In a letter to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research dated October 2, 1954, he wrote, "We are told by fanatical ideologists who are advocating the fluoridation of the water supplies in this country that their purpose is to reduce the incidence of tooth decay in children, and it is the plausibility of this excuse, plus the gullibility of the public and the cupidity ( meaning covetousness - to desire or eagerly wish for ) of public officials that is responsible for the present spread of artificial water fluoridation in this country. However, and I want to make this very definite and very positive, the real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children's teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper and more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty... When the Nazis decided to go into Poland ... the German General Staff exchanged scientific and military ideas, plans and personnel and the scheme of mass medication was seized upon by the Russian Communists because it fitted ideally into their plan to communize the world... I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly twenty years research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine. Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person, mentally or physically."
Another prominent figure in the early development of the fluoride story is Dr. George Estabrooks, an advisor to the US government on hypnotism and psychological behavior control, who later became chairman of the Department of Psychology at Colgate University. He was an authority on hypnosis during WWII, noted for hypnoprogramming US government agents during that time. Estabrooks maintained that creating an effective assassin depended on “splitting” the subject's personality (creating multiple personalities) with the aid of hypnosis. In an article for Science Digest in 1971, Dr. Estabrooks writes about his work with Military intelligence during and after WWII.
With the emergence of thousands of documents now declassified and available through The Freedom of Information Act, as well as the numerous new studies being conducted in recent years, how is it that so many Americans still remain ignorant to the real truth behind fluoridation. Perhaps it is as George Estabrooks has claimed,"Only a people who refuse to permit themselves to sink into intellectual lethargy and conformity, only a people who question and think . . . can be sure that hypnosis--disguised or direct--will not undermine their freedom and rob them of their very lives."
It would appear that wide spread water fluoridation in our country has accomplished the intended goals: to make us more docile and accepting of authority. In other words, we've been dumbed down. Fluoride is now our drug of choice.
