The Flim-Flam Continues for Fluoride

Posted by admin on January 22, 2011 in Uncategorized with No Comments

There is new information fanning the simmering coals concerning the toxicity to fluoride:

A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed. This raises questions about how this renowned cavity-fighter really works.

It has long been believed that fluoride changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a more-decay resistant material called fluorapatite. But the new research found that the fluorapatite layer formed in this way is only 6 nanometers thick — meaning it would take almost 10,000 such layers to span the width of a human hair. According to Science Daily:

“The scientists question whether a layer so thin, which is quickly worn away by ordinary chewing, really can shield teeth from decay”.

Another new study shows that exposure to fluoride may lower children’s intelligence.  In addition to toothpaste, fluoride is added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies. PR Newswire reports:

“About 28 percent of the children in the low-fluoride area scored as bright, normal or higher intelligence compared to only 8 percent in the ‘high’ fluoride area … in the high-fluoride city, 15 percent had scores indicating mental retardation and only 6 percent in the low-fluoride city.”

Here is a excerpt from my book, The Reality of Self, The Power to Simply Be…


One of the most widely consumed substances is fluoride. After more than half a century of debate, one must question why fluoride is promoted for human consumption at all. Or ever! As early as September 18, 1943, the Journal of the American Medical Association stated that “fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons that change the permeability of the cell membrane by certain enzymes.” A year later, October 1, 1944, the Journal of the American Dental Association concluded, “Drinking water containing as little as 1.2ppm fluoride will cause developmental disturbances. We cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances. The potentialities for harm outweigh those for good.”

There are three major forms of fluoride: one is naturally occurring, and two are by-products of industrial production. Limited studies have been done on the naturally occurring form, sodium fluoride (NaF); this is the one that was deemed harmful to animals from the Icelandic volcano. The other two major forms are considered more toxic, sodium silicofluoride and hydrofluorosilic acid; these are the ones used to treat municipal water supplies and little Johnny’s toothpaste. Actually, industrial fluoride is a hazardous material that cannot be dumped in landfills or other waste disposal sites. Good old American ingenuity, “If you cannot throw it away, sell it”. Despite the early warnings, fluoride has been promoted and sold to the American public. This took a conspiracy among government regulators, health professionals, people involved in aluminum production, and the U.S. nuclear weapons program. 60% of our water supplies are treated with fluoride. It is in toothpaste, mouthwash, and other products used for dental “health”.

People who consume beverages produced with fluoridated water and foods processed with municipal water are receiving a toxic load that is challenging their health in a number of ways.

Fluoride is known to be harmful to the kidneys, the heart, and the gastrointestinal system. It is tied to everything from osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s to arthritis and dental fluorosis (stained and pitted teeth). After several generations of fluoridation, we have a thriving new industry – tooth whitening. However, our concern in this setting is the fluoride effect on the human brain and one’s ability to perceive reality.

The above comes from a chapter on substances that not only damage our overall health, but impede our ability to perceive reality.
