LABEL STATES THE CHEMICAL TARGETS THE HEART, KIDNEYS, BONES, CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, GASTROINTESTINAL SYSTEM AND TEETH.

“I doubt that anyone who has never seen teeth mottled from excess fluoride can imagine how unattractive they cause a child to be.  Such a mouth is similar to that of a person who has been chewing tobacco.  Because I have seen these teeth, I can sympathize with the heartbroken mother who wrote me about her boy.  She is blaming herself because she has ruined her son’s appearance by giving him, while a baby, drops containing fluoride.  His permanent teeth, now erupting, are each horribly stained an ugly brown.  Unfortunately, her report is only one of many I receive; and several dentists have told me that they have frequently seen ugly fluoride mottling in children given such drops.  That an excess in fluoride intake can cause lifelong mottling of teeth is well known.

“Fluoride has never been proven to be a body requirement.16  Generation after generation of rats have been observed; and those given fluoride had no better teeth, nor were they in any way healthier, than the animals receiving no fluoride.  Though claims have been made that fluoride increases calcium absorption and retention, studies with humans show the reverse seems to be true, especially if the calcium intake is low.  Fluoride is an acknowledged enzyme inhibitor.  Enzymes start and speed up reactions in the body.  They remain unchained when the reaction is finished, and may therefore repeat the same reactions again and again.  Fluoride interferes with this process when it enters the body.17  An excess causes kidney damage, calcification of the soft tissues, and such brittleness that bones break easily.18,19

“Though glowing claims have been made that fluoride prevents tooth decay, reports have been conflicting.  For example, a U. S. Public Health Service study of Newburgh, New York, one of the first cities in our country to have fluoridated water, found that there was slightly more decay after fluoridation than before.  In Puerto Rico, after the water was fluoridated for fifteen years, 62% of the children were found to have decayed teeth; and the teeth of 64% of the adolescents (ten to fourteen years old) showed ugly staining.  The doctors making the Puerto Rican study pointed out that no amount of fluoride could make up for an inadequate diet.

“A survey by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare revealed that in ten states decay was so rampant that 18% of the children over ten years old had trouble biting and chewing despite fluorides being added to the water in many locales.  On the other hand, children of Seventh‑Day Adventists families, allowed little candy, have much less decay without fluorides than children drinking fluoridated water.  A report of the World Health Organization claims that fluoride decreased decay in thirty countries, but then points out that it can prevent decay only wherever sugar is not eaten.

“It is said that rarely if ever have such huge sums of money been made available for publicity purposes as the astronomical amounts which have been paid for the claims that fluoridation can decrease tooth decay.  Aluminum interests formerly spent millions getting rid of poisonous fluorides.  Now they sell them to fluoridate water supplies.  The implication that decay could be prevented merely by obtaining fluoride while large amounts of sweets could still be eaten gained the enthusiastic support of the soft‑drink industry, the candy and bakery industries, and any others which made money by selling sweets.  Their propaganda to laymen, dentists and pediatricians, almost impossible to distinguish from fact, has been vigorous and widespread.

“A Schatz has shown that cavities develop at the same rate in permanent teeth of children if the water has been fluoridated or not.20  It seems to be generally agreed, even by those who claim that it will decrease the amount of cavities, that once the permanent teeth have fully formed and emerged, fluoride intake will have no effect on future cavity incidence.  Adult teeth do not benefit from fluoridated water.21

“Most people eat at least some foods grown in areas where water is already fluoridated.  In addition, dozens of industries now pour fluorides into our atmosphere; thus, much fluoride is being taken into our bodies through air pollution.22  Still more fluorides from such pollution contaminate the animals and plants we use as food.  We may therefore already be getting too many fluorides.  It is estimated that when the water supply is at one part per million (ppm) level the personal intake of fluorides increase threefold.23

“The American Journal of Diseases of Children cautioned in an editorial that fluoride is indeed a potential poison and that the dosage is still inaccurate.  Now follow this logic if you can.  Fluoride is added to many water supplies across the United States supposedly to prevent or decrease the amount of cavities.  Enough fluoride is added to equal one part per million.  Because fluorosis, the unsightly mottling of teeth, occurs in some infants at 0.5 part per million in drinking water, the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Nutrition recommended in 1979 that 0.25 part per million be allowed for infants age two weeks to two years.24,25,26  This parallels the recommendation of the Council of Dental Therapeutics of the American Dental Association (ADA) 1977.  Yet our water supplies are altered so that they supply approximately four times that amount.  This error must be remedied.  I personally feel extremely concerned that so many pediatricians are recommending fluoride drops to babies.  Under no circumstances would I recommend them.  If your water supply is fluoridated, it means your water has compulsory medication in it.  This is done usually without your permission or consent.  Additional fluoridation is potentially dangerous, and avoidance is the best policy.”

New York Times,  January 20, 1979

“MOST EXPERTS IN SKELETAL FLUOROSIS AGREE THAT INGESTION OF 20 MG OF FLUORIDE A DAY FOR 20 YEARS OR MORE CAN CAUSE CRIPPLING SKELETAL FLUOROSIS.  DOSES AS LOW AS 2 TO 5 MG PER DAY CAN CAUSE THE PRECLINICAL AND EARLIER CLINICAL STAGES.

“THE SITUATION IS COMPLICATED BECAUSE THE RISK OF SKELETAL FLUOROSIS DEPENDS ON MORE THAN THE LEVEL OF FLUORIDE IN THE WATER.  IT ALSO DEPENDS ON NUTRITIONAL STATUS, INTAKE OF VITAMIN D AND PROTEIN, ABSOLUTE AMOUNT OF CALCIUM AND RATIO OF CALCIUM TO MAGNESIUM IN DRINKING WATER, AND OTHER FACTORS.

“IN PARTS OF INDIA, CHINA, AFRICA, JAPAN, AND THE MIDDLE FAST, LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE HAVE SKELETAL FLUOROSIS FROM DRINKING NATURALLY FLUORIDATED WATER.  IN INDIA ABOUT A MILLION PEOPLE HAVE THIS DISEASE.  MOST OF THE VICTIMS LIVE IN AREAS WHERE THE WATER FLUORIDE LEVEL IS 2 PPM OR ABOVE, BUT SOME CASES ARE FOUND IN COMMUNITIES WITH NATURAL FLUORIDE LEVELS BELOW 1 PPM.

“IN THE U. S., MORE THAN A DOZEN CASES OF SKELETAL FLUOROSIS HAVE BEEN REPORTED.  SOME HAVE OCCURRED AT HIGH FLUORIDE LEVELS, OTHERS AT LEVELS LOWER THAN 4 PPM WHEN AGGRAVATING CONDITIONS WERE PRESENT, SUCH AS DIABETES OR IMPAIRED KIDNEY FUNCTION.

“IN SETTING THE RECOMMENDED MAXIMUM CONTAMINANT LEVEL FOR FLUORIDE IN DRINKING WATER IN 1986, EPA CONSIDERED ONLY CRIPPLING SKELETAL FLUOROSIS AS A HEALTH EFFECT AND ESTABLISHED LITTLE OR NO MARGIN OF SAFETY, EVEN FOR THIS DISEASE.  (A MARGIN OF SAFETY IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MAXIMUM CONTAMINANT LEVEL AND THE LEVEL AT WHICH HEALTH EFFECTS FIRST OCCUR IN THE MOST SUSCEPTIBLE INDIVIDUALS).  ACCORDING TO A DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE SURVEY, ABOUT 3% OF THE U. S. POPULATION DRINKS 4 LITERS OR MORE OR WATER PER DAY.  THEREFORE, ABOUT 3% OF THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN AREAS WHERE THE WATER CONTAINS THE NATURAL FLUORIDE LEVEL OF 4 PPM ALLOWED BY EPA ‑ SUCH AS CERTAIN COMMUNITIES IN TEXAS OR SOUTH CAROLINA ‑ ARE INGESTING AT LEAST 16 MG OF FLUORIDE A DAY, NOT INCLUDING THE FLUORIDE THEY DERIVE FROM OTHER SOURCES, SUCH AS TOOTHPASTE, FOOD OR AIR.

“ALSO, BECAUSE A MORE OR LESS CONSTANT PERCENT OF INTAKE IS ACCUMULATED IN BONE, PERSONS WHO CONSUME 8 MG A DAY FOR 50 YEARS ACCUMULATE ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF FLUORIDE IN THEIR BONES AS THOSE WHO CONSUME 20 MG A DAY FOR 20 YEARS.  THEREFORE, FOR PEOPLE WHO DRINK 2 LITERS OR MORE PER DAY OF WATER WITH 4 PPM FLUORIDE THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES, THERE APPEARS TO BE NO MARGIN OF SAFETY EVEN FOR CRIPPLING FLUOROSIS.  IN ITS REGULATIONS FOR MOST OTHER DRINKING WATER CONTAMINANTS, EPA HAS INCLUDED SAFETY FACTORS OF 10 TO 100 AND HAS CALCULATED INTAKES IN TERMS OF A LIFETIME—THAT IS, 70 YEARS INSTEAD OF 20.

What ever happened to freedom of choice in this country?  I do not mean the freedom to put street drugs into our bodies.  I mean the freedom not to have our water supply contaminated with toxic industrial waste.

Anyone, who chooses, can use fluoride toothpaste and go to a dentist to receive fluoride treatments and a prescription for fluoride drops.  They are allowed to make conscientious decisions regarding themselves and their children.

When fluoride treatment of public water supplies is mandated, advocates are saying that they know what is best for all of us and that the rest of us should not be allowed to make conscientious decisions regarding ourselves and our children.

A tremendous amount of money is spent promoting fluoride.  Money is the name of the game.  Instead of paying for disposal of their toxic waste, the phosphate fertilizer and aluminum industries can sell it to public water suppliers.  Dentists can treat dental fluorosis, the unsightly mottling of teeth, with expensive crowns.

Because it is a controlled substance, it takes a prescription from a dentist in order to get pharmaceutical fluoride drops.  No prescription is needed to contaminate our public water supply with toxic industrial waste fluoride which contains arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, phosphorus, silver and other toxic compounds.

When bathing in fluoridated water, an individual can absorb as much fluoride as drinking it.  Will science discover that early Altsheimer’s disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis are caused by fluoride?
