Fluoride is toxic!
No matter the controversy of this topic, or which side you are on. It’s simply a proven fact that fluoride is a toxin.
Engineered originally as a byproduct of aluminum and other metals, fertilizer, etc.
Chemicals used for fluoridation are highly toxic industrial waste products.
It’s true. Scientists in the 1900s then manufactured it as a “tooth strengthening byproduct,” based on minimal research, which was then sold to the water suppliers and added to the water supply.
Fluoride is NOT a nutrient.
A healthy diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients is enough to keep teeth strong, sans fluoride!
Research has shown, time and again, the damage that environmental toxins can cause to our health, together with the rates of chronic disease climbing – especially neurodevelopmental and other cognitive disorders, diabetes, and thyroid dysfunction.
Can you believe this toxin is still delivered every day in public water supplies and many processed foods? Many advocates are attempting to overturn this practice, and the effort is making headway! Until we cross that bridge, it is imperative to filter your drinking water. A great option is a full-house filtration system, which is an investment. Berkey water filters are the best countertop filters. Don’t forget your shower and bath filters if you don’t opt for a total house filter.
Nearly 2,000 published scientific studies have reported adverse effects of fluoride on almost every organ and tissue in the human body.
58 studies involving water fluoridation – provide compelling evidence that fluoride exposure during the early years of life damages a child’s developing brain. Also linking fluoride with reduced IQ in children. Nazi camps administered fluoride to their prisoners so they would be more docile. These are just a few of the horrifying histories of fluoride.
Dr. Steven Levy, D.D.S., and his team found during their study that “fluoride intakes during each of the first four years (of a child’s life) were individually significantly related to fluorosis on maxillary central incisors, with the first year more important.” They went on to warn that “infant formulas reconstituted with higher fluoride water can provide 100 to 200 times more fluoride than breast milk, or cow’s milk.”
The American Dental Association (ADA) has known that fluoride exposure causes dental fluorosis since at least 2006, but the group has done nothing to warn the 200 million Americans that live in communities with fluoridated water to avoid its use in babies and infants. Many mainstream dentists still recommend that children and adults not only drink fluoridated water but even advise parents to add fluoride drops to their children’s drinking water if the family lives in non-fluoridated areas or drinks private well water. This needs to stop!
In 2014, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health studied the neurotoxic effects lead and mercury had, then added fluoride to their list of clinically important developmental neurotoxins, also suggesting that it may cause neurodevelopmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments. They noted that “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain damage.”
Your body is mostly water. Which requires a constant daily supply of water to detoxify your system. In other words, to fuel all the various waste filtration systems nature has designed to keep your body free of toxins. Your blood, your kidneys, and your liver all require a source of good clean water to rid your body of the toxins you encounter daily.
When you drink water that is filled with toxins leached from plastic, by-products from chlorination, volatile organic compounds, pesticides, and hormones. Your body must work twice as hard, to detoxify it, before that water can be used to fuel your organs for detoxification.
In the 1990s a British scientist, Jennifer Luke, discovered that fluoride accumulates in very high levels in the pineal gland. The pineal gland produces melatonin, a serotonin-derived hormone that modulates sleep patterns in both circadian and seasonal cycles. We all know how important sleep is! The pineal gland has been called the “third eye” known to be the keeper our consciousness. Now, why would the government want to put a chemical into the masses’ water supply known to suppress the consciousness of humanity? Hmm.
In 1997, a Finnish study found that the rate of skin rashes in a city’s population decreased significantly within months of the city terminating its water fluoridation program.
Many people are being over-exposed to fluoride.
Did you know, for example, that more than 20 percent of U.S. water treatment systems have violated key provisions of the Safe Drinking Water Act (over the last six years), yet fewer than six percent of the violations were ever fined or punished? This is to say nothing of the violations that go unnoticed in this time of budgetary restraints and lack of regulation.
The truth of the matter is it would cost the government trillions of dollars to provide truly clean water into the pipes of your house.
The government doesn’t care about your health, so you must.
(A note about Well Water)
Unless you are getting your water from a well that is located 800 feet or more below the ground surface, chances are your well water has been contaminated by some if not many toxic substances that have been dumped into the ground soil over the past many decades.
Some common toxins that are dumped by the millions of pounds into soils every year:
Estrogen mimicking hormones
Most of the symptoms of fluoride toxicity point towards profound metabolic dysfunction and are like the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
The following are some scary effects fluoride has on our bodies:
Developmental neurotoxin, and other neurological damage
Endocrine disruptor damages the thyroid gland
Enzyme disruptors, damages cell proteins
Diabetes damages the kidney
Accumulates in and damages the pineal gland
Dental fluorosis, association with other systemic damage
Skeletal fluorosis, osteoporosis, arthritic symptoms, increased risk of hip fracture
High sensitivity amongst some individuals
Ending water fluoridation is a difficult task, but concerted efforts by citizens, local authorities, and even dentists have resulted in some significant victories.
