In a time when corporate interests control politics, finance, scientific studies, and public health, is it that hard to believe that the interests of the American people are seldom taken into account when billions of dollars are on the line?
Few health-related topics come close to water fluoridation in regard to colossal misconceptions, widespread public ignorance, and controversy – even in comparison to vaccinations or genetically modified foods (GMOs). Also alarming is the amount of censorship on social media when individuals try to spread awareness of the dangers of fluoride. Big Tech is without a doubt attempting to steering the narrative.
Thanks to Big Tech putting its finger on the scale, many people believe that only there aren’t good reasons to question the safety and efficacy of lacing drinking water with fluoride.
- Since 2010, 246 American communities have rejected fluoride
- 97% of Western Europe has rejected fluoride
- 63 studies have linked fluoride with reduced IQ
- Fluoride has recently been classified as a presumed neurotoxin by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ National Toxicology Program
Perhaps the most serious side effect of fluoride is that it calcifies the pineal gland. We will discuss what this means and the herbal supplement that can reverse this damage later in our discussion.
Natural or Synthetic?
The word “fluoride” is actually justa generic “industry term” that usually refers to “fluoride products.” Fluoride products are manmade fluorine-based chemicals added to a municipal water supply or consumer goods. The 4 most common fluoride products are hydrofluorosilicic acid, sodium fluorosilicate, hexafluorosilicic acid, and perhaps the most well-known, sodium fluoride which is also the active ingredient in most rat poisons sold around the world.
Sodium fluoride is the chemical byproduct of both superphosphate fertilizer production and aluminum and steel smelting. According to the EPA, sodium fluoride is categorically a hazardous waste. Therefore, these industries must capture this byproduct using air scrubbers in smokestacks so it does not pollute the environment.
These fluoride products are very different from calcium fluoride. Calcium fluoride naturally occurs in the human body and in many drinking wells and aquifers, and has been shown to play a role in strengthening bones and teeth.
Just to summarize: there are several synthetic forms of fluoride and there is the naturally-occurring form of fluoride, known as calcium fluoride.
Fluoride is Everywhere
Public ignorance regarding fluoride is due to a massive public relations campaign spearheaded by a conglomeration including, but not limited to, the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Medical Association (AMA), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These agencies are the key players in this deliberate disinformation campaign aimed at perpetuating a reckless experiment for more than half a century. In fact, if a dentist publicly expresses an anti-fluoride opinion, he could lose his license.
Fluoride is added to many products, not just municipal water supplies. Fluoride is still used in modern dentistry, it is used in pesticides, fungicides, and other biocides, it is added to bottled drinking water by companies like Nestle and others, and it is even allowed into children’s toothpaste. Some lesser known sources of fluoride include antibiotics, bottled juices, chewing gum, pharmaceuticals, household cleaning products, mattresses, milk, instant teas, mouthwash, tranquilizers, Teflon, tissues, soda, air fresheners, and vaccines.
According to the ADA,
“Over 405 million people in more than 60 countries worldwide enjoy the benefits of water fluoridation.”
This amounts to several million tons added to the US water supply annually at approximately 9 gallons per minute in larger cities, according to some estimates.
How did an EPA-recognized hazardous material become widely used in the treatment of tooth decay? According to the FDA’s grand dictum that only a drug can treat, prevent, or cure an illness and disease, how can it knowingly allow the drugging of tap water where there is no ability to regulate individual dosages? How can they ensure that people of different ages and sizes do not overdose?
“Water Treatment” vs. “Water Drugging”
There are many chemicals added to the water supply. All of which, with the exception of fluoride, are added to “treat” the water itself. Fluoride, however, is expressly added to prevent or treat tooth decay of those who drink the water.
This is a program of mass medication and technically should not be the responsibility of the CDC. So what does the FDA have to say? The FDA considers sodium fluoride an “Unapproved New Drug”, yet it has been added to the water supply to treat a medical condition for more than 50 years.
In the clinical studies cited by the CDC, the dosage is closely regulated, but when added to the water supply there is no way to assess how much people are consuming. Therefore, medical studies that deem fluoride to be safe are essentially irrelevant if cities are not regulating the amount individuals drink.
Do we know the real effects of sodium fluoride over long periods of time in unregulated doses? Are new mothers mixing baby formula with fluoridated water? If so, have studies been done to assess the safety of this practice?
10 Common Misconceptions About Water Fluoridation
The reality is that fluoride may be in your tap water without your knowledge. Your mayor never called you, no doctor wrote you a prescription, no agency put out a PSA commercial. Americans are not told that a drug is administered to their municipal water supplies at a rate of 8 gallons per second. Moreover, Americans are not told about how hazardous it is to their health.
Let’s explore 10 common misconceptions about water fluoridation.
1. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral.
False. As I mentioned earlier, calcium fluoride, the type found in nature, is not what is added to the US water supply. The four types of fluoride used by municipalities are hexahydrofluorosilic acid, hydrofluorosilic acid, sodium fluoride, and sodium fluorosilicate. All four of these are byproducts of the superphosphate fertilizer industry and aluminum smelting industry.
2. Fluoride is proven to be safe.
False. No study has ever been done to prove the safety of fluoride products. Fluoride is classified by the EPA as a toxic hazardous waste.
According to the Fluoride Action Network,
“Advocates of fluoridating water often state that there are “thousands” of studies that prove fluoridation to be both safe and effective. In 2000, however, a systematic review of the literature commissioned by the British Government (“York Review”) found that, under current standards for what constitutes good medical evidence, there has not yet been a single high-quality study demonstrating fluoridation’s benefits — despite over 50 years of fluoridating water.”
3. Fluoride only does good for teeth and has no dental side effects.
False. Fluoride actually leads to dental fluorosis. Some “professionals” insist that this only develops above the “safe” limit. This is incorrect. Only above “safe” limits is when they can declare with certainty that fluorosis has happened and can be traced back to fluoride. This is the same as saying that cigarettes cause lung cancer only above some imaginary “safe” limit like half a pack a day. We know that cigarettes cause cancer in all dosages, even just one. It is irrelevant if the individual actually develops cancer. The act of smoking is in fact carcinogenic, the same way that coming in contact with fluoride is carcinogenic. Naturally, in fluoridated areas, there are higher incidents of dental fluorosis. A corollary exists between higher fluoride concentrations and higher rates of dental fluorosis.
4. All dentists agree that fluoride should be supplemented to prevent tooth decay.
False. Thousands of dentists have spoken out against the practice of fluoridation over the decades. Many petitions are in circulation with hundreds of professionals adding their signatures in protest of this barbaric form of quackery. One in particular has over 4,650 signatures including professionals from the following areas:
- 826 Nurses (RN, MSN, BSN, ARNP, APRN, LNC, RGON)
- 616 DC’s (Doctor of Chiropractic, includes M Chiro)
- 568 MD’s (includes MBBS)
- 531 PhD’s – includes DSc (Doctor of Science); EdD (Doctor of Education); DrPH (Doctor of Public Health)
- 366 Dentists (DDS, DMD, BDS)
- 174 ND’s (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine)
- 106 Lawyers (JD, LLB, Avvocato)
- 104 Pharmacists (Pharm.D, B. Pharm, DPh, RPH)
- 121 RDHs (Registered Dental Hygienist); also DH, RDHAP, EFDA, RDAEF, and RDN
- 72 Acupuncturists (LAc – Licensed Acupuncturist, and, MAc -Master Acupuncturist)
- 47 DO’s (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine)
- 29 Veterinarians (DMV, VMD, BVMS)
- 20 OD (Doctor of Optometry)
- 22 PA-C (Physician Assistant – Certified); also MPAS and RPA-C
5. Rates of tooth decay decrease in fluoridated areas and increase in unfluoridated areas.
False. Not only did tooth decay begin decreasing long before fluoridation programs were created, tooth decay has continued to decrease in areas that have since ended fluoridation programs. All countries have experienced a decrease in tooth decay, irrespective of fluoridation programs due to increased exposure to dental hygiene products, vitamin supplementation, and improved diet.
6. By brushing teeth with fluoridated toothpaste, the harmful effects of fluoride are avoided because the toothpaste is not swallowed.
False. The human mouth has about a 90% absorption rate, the most permeable part of the human body. Additionally, you have a sublingual artery under your tongue which facilitates rapid transmission into your bloodstream. This is the reason certain “sublingual” pills are meant to be placed under the tongue. In terms of acute toxicity, fluoride is more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic.
7. Fluoride is regulated by the FDA and therefore it is approved for public use.
False. According to the FDA’s website, fluoride is an “unapproved new drug” and has been since its inception. Still, the FDA lauds fluoride as a godsend of medicine. However, even the FDA website sites outdated studies from 1999, 2000, and 2001. The FDA is actually not in charge of oversight of water fluoridation.
“The 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act gave regulatory oversight of public drinking water (tap water) to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). FDA has responsibility for ensuring that the quality standards for bottled water are compatible with EPA standards for tap water.”
8. Fluoride is used in all civilized countries with adequate healthcare and only third world nations remain unfluoridated.
False. There are more people drinking fluoridated water in the US than in the rest of the world combined. According to the Fluoride Action Network:
“Most developed nations do not fluoridate their water. In western Europe, for example, only 3% of the population consumes fluoridated water. While 25 countries have water fluoridation programs, 11 of these countries have less than 20% of their population consuming fluoridated water. In total, 377,655,000 million people worldwide drink artificially fluoridated water. This represents 5% of the world’s population.”
9. Even if fluoride is not good for your teeth, at least there are no negative side effects on the rest of your body.
False. Adverse health effects from fluoride include arthritis, bone fractures, lowered IQ, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, endocrine disruption, skeletal fluorosis, hypersensitivity, pineal gland calcification, kidney disease, male infertility, thyroid disease, and gastrointestinal effects.
10. Fluoridating water is morally the right thing to do because it is fair and beneficial.
False. How can forcibly “medicating” someone against their own will or especially without their consent be moral? When a doctor administers medication to a patient in a hospital without their knowledge or consent, he is liable for malpractice; but when this takes place on a large scale population, somehow it is completely permissible.
For a much longer list of 50 Reasons to Avoid Fluoride including the science supporting each reason, visit http://fluoridealert.org/.
In 1939, Gerald J. Cox, a scientist employed by the American Aluminum Company (ALCOA), the world’s largest producer of sodium fluoride at the time, was tasked with finding a use for the chemical so that the company could turn a loss into a profit. After all, the handling and disposal of industrial hazardous materials is quite costly. Cox found a loose correlation in lab rats between fluoride and dental health. However, in reports as early as 1930 there were serious concerns about the chemical causing mottled tooth enamel. (This mottled enamel is a condition known as dental fluorosis in humans and it is widely accepted that this condition is a direct result of water fluoridation.)
Since that time, there have been countless independent studies that categorically disprove the industry-funded studies. For instance, a study conducted by Harvard University and published in the July 2012 Environmental Health Perspectives, a U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Journal, showed that “children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQs than those who lived in low fluoride areas.” Other studies show links to cancer, infertility, docility, and calcification of the pineal gland.
In 2006, the US National Research Council released a 500 page review, which took 12 scientists more than 3 years to produce. The findings of this study challenges the EPA’s “safe” standard of 4ppm. The report documents health concerns from fluoride exposure such as bone damage, brain damage, and risk to the endocrine system. According to Dr. Bob Carton, a former risk assessment scientist at the EPA, this report “should be the center piece of every discussion on fluoridation. It changes everything.”
Fluoride Harms the Pineal Gland
The pineal gland (otherwise known as the “third eye”) is a part of the brain that produces melatonin, regulates your sleep cycle, plays a role in nighttime dreams, and regulates other glands in the body.
Fluoride, heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxins in our food supply, tap water, and the air we breathe have all adversely affected the pineal gland. In response to this attack, the pineal gland forms a calcium shell in order to protect itself. This inhibits blood flow to the pineal and eventually inhibits its function. Children as young as 5 have been shown to have calcified pineal glands.
Three of the most common dietary and environmental risk factors that affect the pineal gland are:
• Halides – fluoride, chloride, bromide, etc.
• Atrazine & Glyphosate – most commonly used pesticides
• Heavy metals
Symptoms Of Pineal Gland Calcification
• Dysregulation of sleep cycle
• Inability to sleep or dream
• Dysregulation of growth hormones
• Dysregulation of endocrine system
• Dysregulation of the adrenal response
There are many other health implications as well as purported spiritual implications of a calcified pineal gland that we will explore in a separate episode at a later date because of the volume of relevant information to present.
It is a common misconception that avoiding fluoride in your drinking water is enough to protect the pineal gland. Since the pineal gland lies outside the blood brain barrier, it is susceptible to any and all heavy metals that are found in our water, our food, and the air that we breathe.
Thankfully, my company Dragonfly Effect Naturals developed a breakthrough herbal supplement that helps to support the function of the pineal gland and reverse the damage of fluoride. Third Eye is a myco-herbal blend that can be used by everyone and anyone looking to decalcify their pineal gland or regulate their sleep cycle. Please visit DragonflyEffectNaturals.com for more information on Third Eye.
Still in Favor of Fluoride?
The bottom line is there is no choice to easily opt-out of this Orwellian mass-drugging program – not without buying an expensive water filtration system for sinks, showers, etc. Although fluoridated products like toothpaste, water, and gum are widely available, allowing the public to choose “yes” if they are aware of the dangers and decide to use fluoride, the rest of the population is given no way out. This system is philosophically backwards, punishing individuals who just want to be left alone by forcing additional costs and inconvenience onto them.
If the Powers That Be actually cared about public health, why wouldn’t they instead add vitamins and minerals to the municipal water supply, raise its pH, and ionize it?
Ask yourself: Is it moral to impose this program on those of us who choose not to consume this caustic substance? Consider boycotting all companies selling fluoride-laced products and engaging with your local city council to end the municipal fluoridation program. Many cities across the country are joining the movement, and it is up to us whether we bring this travesty to an end or continue to allow our health and the health of our loved ones to be chemically eroded.
The propaganda peddled by organizations such as the American Dental Association, are but the curtain which obscures from view a more sinister truth. These artificial fluoride products added to our drinking water lower IQ, cause arthritis, cancer, bone fractures, male infertility, hypersensitivity, kidney disease, endocrine disruption, gastrointestinal effects, and a host of other adverse side effects.
We live in the era of false prophets where charlatans masquerade as “the experts.”
This illusion of credibility is reinforced by the higher education institutions which reward “degrees” to those it deems subservient to the system. These individuals pass through the gauntlet of indoctrination, and are inculcated into being obedient lapdogs of the Powers That Be.
