Fluoride: Placating a Nation

Medication of America without informed consent.
The dangers of fluoride

Medical treatment without informed consent

There is a population of people in the world today that are subject to involuntary medical treatment similar to that of the former Nazi regime and the Soviet Gulags. Masses of targeted population were then and are again today being medicated without informed consent. This medical treatment then and now is one that is slowing their reproduction rates, making them more docile, making them more dependent on their government and less able to organize rebellion.

This involuntary and uninformed treatment caused untold suffering and death back then but pales somewhat by comparison to the toll of suffering and death today. This action was condemned and prosecuted in the world arena then but is slipping by virtually unnoticed by freedom loving people today.

A potent neurological agent has been purposefully placed in the drinking water of more than one country now for many decades. In Germany, circa WW II, the alleged reason for mass-medicating water with this chemical was to sterilize humans and medicate the people interred in concentration camps into calm submission.(1) The introduction of this concocted medication into the drinking water was to control the population and squelch the ability to organize rebellion among the citizens of certain areas and ethnic groups along with the prisoners in the war camps. This medication is the same basic chemical being used today–fluoride…

What is fluoride?

What is this dangerous chemical that whole populations are subject to by unwittingly drinking and using community water? It is called hexafluorosilicic acid–AKA loosely as floridine, sodium monofluoride, disodium difluoride, natrium fluoride, florocid or most commonly known as sodium fluoride.

To put it bluntly: Whole countries are being placated, sterilized and controlled en-masse by an insidious drug introduced into their water stream, dentifrices and food sources. New heights of attention deficit and mental deterioration and intellectual impairment are reached daily in these societies along with an escalating complexity of illness and even genetic defects–all related to sodium fluoride. Hitler’s plan to “take over the world” included medicating the water supply with sodium fluoride!

But did you know this?

This potent chemical is a prime ingredient in both Prozac® and in Sarin Nerve Gas. It is also a prime ingredient in anesthetics and in psychotropic and hypnotic drugs as well. It is also the prime ingredient in rat and roach poison and classified medically as a protoplasmic poison.

Fluoride has been considered and investigated as tumorigenic, mutagenic, and a reproductive effector.

“Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making them submissive to the will of those who wish to govern them…any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.” Signed: CHARLES E. PERKINS, Chemist. http://www.sonic.net/kryptox/history/perkins2.htm

Because fluoride is an enzyme inhibitor it puts every cell in your body at risk. It’s been said that man does not die, he kills himself. The dumbing-down of America is real and sodium fluoride medication plays a role by treating the rights of free citizens to choose or refuse medical treatment as if it no longer exists! The involuntary introduction of mass medication for experimentation on humans is insane at best and going on wholesale in America and other freedom loving countries today through the fluoridation of our water and food supply.

Don’t we need fluoride?

While it is true that our teeth and bones require fluoride to be healthy and strong, what we need is calcium fluorophosphate and not sodium fluoride. The form of calcium fluoride is important for muscle tone, tissue, tendon and capillary strength and bonding calcium from the saliva to the teeth.

Homeopathic remedies of Calcium fluoride work for symptoms of hardening of the arteries, hard tumors, hemorrhoids, varicose veins and emotional problems. Calcium fluoride is found naturally in water and some food sources and will not mottle the teeth as other forms of fluoride will.

Sodium fluoride on the other hand is an acute poison that in excessive amounts will shorten the life span, mottle the teeth and make the bones brittle as well as promote various cancers.(2) This form of fluoride imitates the hydrogen ion which easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and allows fluoride access to brain tissues. Studies and independent scientific evidence have shown that sodium fluoride in small amounts in the brain causes symptoms of mental disturbances and has the psychological effect of making humans docile and subservient. Sodium fluoride also has a strong affinity for bonding
with aluminum which is a causative factor in Alzheimer’s disease.

Facts about sodium fluoride

Sodium fluoride is principally a waste byproduct of the nuclear and aluminum industry and is pawned off to our municipal water supplies as a desirable water treatment adjunct. Sodium fluoride is found in our community water supply, toothpaste, mouthwash, dental treatments, juice, soft drinks, canned food, commercially processed fruit and vegetables, and in coated cooking utensils.

  • Adults can absorb up to 0.5 mg a day of toxic sodium fluoride simply using a “ribbon” of toothpaste for normal teeth brushing.
  • Children can absorb even more than that if they are swallowing the paste. Half a tube of toothpaste is toxic enough to kill a small child. (It is for this reason that a small warning label is required on toothpaste packaging.)
  • Ingested quantities of sodium fluoride as small as 0.04 mg a day have been proven to cause adverse health effects.
  • Lifetime ingestion and retention of 2mg of fluoride a day can produce crippling skeletal fluorosis.(3) and yet in “optimally fluoridated” areas of our country the current intake is estimated to be between 5 and 7 mg a day!
  • Up to half of each day’s intake of sodium fluoride is retained in the body and the other half is eliminated by normal and healthy kidney function.(4)
Known effects of sodium fluoride

“Regarding fluoridation, the EPA should act immediately to protect the public, not just on the cancer data, but on the evidence of bone fractures, arthritis, mutagenicity and other effects” William Marcus, Ph. D., senior EPA toxicologist, Covert Action, Fall 1992, p. 66

“Water fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century… if not of all time.” Dr Robert Carton, former President of the Union of Government Scientists at the US Environmental Protection Agency.

  • The American Dental Association is now advising to NOT give fluoridated water to infants as it causes brain damage and puts them at a high risk of developing dental fluorosis.
  • According to the Leningrad Medical Institute a “safe” concentration of 1.0 ppm can cause derangements in blood sugar balance.
  • Fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone, tendon, muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney and trachea.(5)
  • Fluoride depletes the energy reserves and the ability of white blood cells to effectively eliminate foreign agents by phagocytosis. (Even micro amounts of fluoride may seriously depress the ability of white blood cells to destroy pathogenic agents.(6)
  • Fluoride confuses the immune system and causes it to attack the body’s own tissues(7) and inhibits antibody formation.(8)
  • Fluoride causes cancer.(9)
  • Fluoride causes premature aging.(10)
  • Fluoride depresses thyroid activity.(11)
  • Fluoride ingested from mouth rinses and dentifrices is extremely hazardous to the development, health and life span of children.(12)
  • High fluoride concentrations in drinking water is associated with decreased birth rates.(13)

The general consensus that fluoridation is beneficial is generally beyond question and this idea prevails in our society even after decades of negative results and studies. When sodium fluoride was first introduced into our water supplies it was accepted upon the premise of “prescience” along with a lack of contraindications and data.

  • Some community water supplies us an even cheaper version of fluoride called silicofluorides. According to research presented to the 17th International Neurotoxicology Conference.(14)
  • These silicofluorides are associated with an increase in children’s blood lead levels.(15)
  • In research dated September 1999, published in the International Journal of Environmental Studies, Masters and Coplan studied lead screening data from 280,000 Massachusetts children. They found that average blood lead levels are significantly higher in children living in communities whose water is treated with silicofluorides.
  • Data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Evaluation Survey (NHANES III) and a survey of over 120,000 children in New York towns (population 15,000 to 75,000) corroborate this effect.
Fluoride’s failure as a dentifrice

A New Zealand study in 1990 conducted by Dr. John Colquhoun on 60,000 school children found no difference in the occurrence of tooth decay between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas.(14) He also found a substantial increase in dental fluorosis in the children in the fluoridated areas.

A Hildebolt study in 1989 on 6,000 school children along with a 1990 study by Dr John Yiamouyiannis on 39,000 school children contradicted any alleged benefits from the use of sodium fluorides.

Four major studies involving 480,000 children (US, 39,000; Japan, 22,000; India, 400,000; Tucson, 29,000) comparing fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas showed no significant difference in dental decay rates.

The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has classified fluoride as an unapproved dental medicament due to its high toxicity.

The FDA considers fluoride to be an unapproved new drug for which there is no proof of safety or effectiveness.

The FDA does not consider fluoride an essential nutrient.

Chemical facts about fluoride

Fluoride is listed as an acute toxin. It has a rating higher than that of lead. According to “Clinical Toxicology of Commercial products,” 5th Edition, 1984, lead is given a toxicity rating of 3 to 4, and Fluoride is rated at 4 (3 = moderately toxic, 4 = very toxic).

On December 7, 1992, the new EPA Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for lead was set at 0.015 ppm, with a goal of 0.0ppm. The MCL for fluoride is currently set for 4.0ppm–that’s over 350 times the permissible level of lead and yet fluoride is more toxic than lead!

Fluoride is a toxic waste. It is a byproduct of the nuclear and aluminum industries and cannot be dumped because it is a hazardous material and absorbs readily into the ground.

The US Public Health Service has stated that fluoride makes the bones more brittle and the dental enamel more porous.

Tom’s of Main Ingredient Fact Sheet about sodium fluoride erroneously substitutes fluorine for sodium fluoride, and then says that fluorine is in its “free elemental form” (a trace mineral) when fluorine is actually a gas. Sodium fluoride is not fluorine in its “free elemental form” as stated in their fact sheet, thus confusing the real issue by substituting the words fluorine for sodium fluoride.(16)

Sodium fluoride waste is achieved as a solid by neutralizing waste hydrofluoric acid resulting from the production of superphosphate fertilizer. It is also generated by treating sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate with hydrofluoric acid, followed by concentrating the resulting solutions, sometimes with the addition of alcohols to precipitate the NaF or sodium fluoride.

Fluoride is NOT a gaseous or “trace mineral” form!

Fluoride solutions and alternatives

Boiling water does not remove the fluorides but rather concentrates it. Reverse osmosis removes most fluorides. Avoid drinking fluoridated tap water and cooking with fluoridated tap water!
Bone char is an effective fluoride filter agent.
You can make your own toothpaste with baking soda and a small amount of peroxide.
Alternative toothpastes without fluoride added are available in health food stores also.
You should avoid canned fruits vegetables, and instead use fresh and frozen organic fruit and vegetables as canned products are more likely than not processed with fluoridated water.

I personally advise you to educate yourself by researching the references in this article and others. There are many reliable resources online that lead to legitimate research information.

Finally, become pro-active in your government by writing your congressman about your concerns.
Spread the word about the findings you discover.

  1. Accidental Release Measures
    Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8.

Spills: Pick up and place in a suitable container for reclamation or disposal, using a method that does not generate dust. US Regulations (CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard National Response Center is (800) 424-8802.

  1. Handling and Storage
    Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Separate from acids and oxidizing materials. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.
  2. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
    Airborne Exposure Limits: -OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 2.5 mg(F)/m3 (TWA)

-ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 2.5 mg(F)/m3 (TWA)

Ventilation System:
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.

Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved):
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a half facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn for up to ten times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest.. A full-face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn up to 50 times the exposure limit, or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency, or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-facepiece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen- deficient atmospheres.

Skin Protection:
Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.

Eye Protection:
Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
