Fluoride

Fluoride facts

FACT
In the year 2000, on Hawaii Public Radio, Dr. Mark Greer made the statement that “the toxicology tests proved that fluoride was safe and effective”. There was one problem with this: there no independent toxicology reports ever done at this time. In a hearing at the Capitol in 2003, I made reference to this in my testimony. I also said that Dr. Greer missed his calling. He should have the President of the Liar’s Club. This was said in front of at least 300 potential witnesses in a defamation of character lawsuit that has never taken place. Dr. Greer’s sole purpose for lying was so he could be the guy to bring fluoride to Hawaii.

FACT:
In 2006, the National Research Council did the first independent toxicology report. They found that anything over .8ppm was extremely detrimental to one’ health. The NRC also advised that fluoride should not be used in infant formulas due to its neurological damage danger. The NRC also concluded that kidney patients, diabetics, seniors, and outdoor workers were susceptible populations and especially vulnerable to harm from fluoride ingestion.

FACT:
The CDC, in their Morbidity and Mortality report on “Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental caries in the United States”, of August 17, 2001/Vol.50/No.RR-14, on page 4, fourth paragraph, it says: ‘The laboratory and epidemiological research that has led to the better understanding of how fluoride prevents dental caries indicates that fluoride’s effectiveness is post-eruptive (after the tooth comes into the mouth) and topical (on the surface of the tooth) and that the effects depends on fluoride being in the right amount in the right place at the right time”. Nowhere in the entire 42-page booklet does it say you have to drink it.

FACT:
At Harvard University in late 2005 or early 2006, Elise Bassin, a Doctoral student in the Dental School, submitted her doctoral thesis to Dr. Chester Douglass, the head of the Dental School. In her thesis, Ms. Bassin found a correlation between fluoride and bone cancer in adolescent boys. When Dr. Douglass released her doctoral thesis to the public, he omitted the part about bone cancer. About a year or so later that omission was discovered and Harvard conducted an examination on Dr. Douglass. While the investigation was going on, Dr. Douglass donated $1 million to Harvard. He was exonerated. Dr. Douglass was also on the payroll of the Colgate/Palmolive Company.

FACT:
Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, a noted and well-established neuro-toxicologist, produced research proving that fluoride is a neurotoxin that affects the central nervous system. When she published her work in 1995, not only was it dismissed, bit it also ended her career. Dr. Harold Hodge, one of Dr. Mullenix’s mentors, who served as the chief toxicologist for the Manhattan Project, a.k.a. the Atomic Energy Commission, was instrumental in promoting fluoride to the public. As Dr. Mullenix’s work progressed and she reported her finding to Hodge, he shrugged them off. It wasn’t until much later that Dr. Mullenix learned that Hodge had conducted his own research 50 years earlier, and had first discovered the connection between fluoride and its ill effects on the central nervous system.

FACT:
Under the Pure Water Act, it is illegal to dump fluoride in the streams, lakes, rivers, or oceans. But, somehow if it goes through a water faucet and then through a person’s body, it’s okay?

FACT:
The sugar lobby’s answer to cavity reduction is more fluoride rather than promoting less sugar in the diet.

FACT:
Fluoride, rather than stopping tooth decay, causes teeth to rot and crumble, and by the same mechanism also causes osteoporosis.

FACT:
Fluoride inhibits antibody formation in the blood, depresses thyroid function, promotes, development of bone cancer, causes premature aging of the body, and is the main ingredient in rat poison.

FACT:
Federal health officials have known these facts for years, but have been controlled by the political interests of the nuclear arms, aluminum, steel, and phosphate manufactures to remain silent.

FACT:
Before fluoride was touted as “an essential nutrient”, it was classified as a toxic, industrial waste product and had to be disposed of as such to the tune of $10 billion a year or more. Now, it’s merely dumped into water systems.
