Are You Drinking Poison? Fluoride In the Water

Dr. Strangelove jokes aside –

Are you and everyone you know being poisoned in a mass scale in one of the largest and longest running test experience to humans?

The real joke is that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls the 1945 decision to add fluoride to the water system “one of the 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.” Bottled water typically has unknown amounts of fluoride levels, but the optimal level of fluoride to prevent tooth decay is .7 milligrams per liter of water and what the government actually is now recommending it to be lowered down to after 50yrs. Anything higher than .7mg/liter is unnecessary and in higher doses was determined that “fluoride given to rats produce bone and liver cancer and signs of neurological damage” (Phillis Mullenix) and dental fluorosis.  Though Europeans have fought years of having fluoride removed from their water sources, many fail to realize that their table salt has fluoride added to in.

The EPA website even states:

“The decision to fluoridate a water supply is made by the State or local municipality, and is not mandated by EPA or any other Federal entity… Fluoride enters drinking water in discharge from fertilizer or aluminum factories. Also, many communities add fluoride to their drinking water to promote dental health.”

Fluoride is a bi-product of pesticide and fumigants and a byproduct of industrial sludge. It is in fact considered “the lifeblood of the modern industrial economy”(Bryson 2004). Just take a look at the $16 billion per year global fluorochemical industry. Until a ‘use’ was found in America’s water supplies, fluoride was only considered a toxic, hazardous waste. Through sly public re-education, fluoride, once a waste product, became the active ingredient in fluorinated pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, anesthetics, tranquilizers, fluorinated pharmaceuticals, and a number of industrial and domestic products, fluorinated dental gels, rinses and toothpastes.

“During WWII the mass medication of drinking water with sodium fluoride was a tactic used in German and Russian prisoner of war camps to make the prisoners “stupid and docile”(Stephen 1995). Fluoridation caused slight damage to a specific part of the brain, making it more difficult for the person affected to defend his freedom and causing the individual to become more docile towards authority. Fluoride remains one of the strongest anti-psychotic substances known, and is contained in twenty-five percent of the major tranquilizers.”

         It is now used for about two-thirds of the U.S. population on public water systems and for about 5.7% of people worldwide.
