Because we have the annual IONIZER group buy going on, I have the utterly infuriating subject of WATER QUALITY on my mind. In particular, chlorine and fluoride. Can we just talk a little about fluoride?
The Nazis fed concentration camp victims fluoride because it is well known to sterilize people and make them docile. Former FDA scientist Dr. Robert Carton said, “Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time.” It’s an ingredient in Prozac, and sarin nerve gas, too.
As an element, fluorine is a highly toxic and corrosive gas. Fluorine combines with minerals as “fluoride.” Dr. William Hirzy of the FDA said: “…if it goes into the air, it’s a pollutant. If it goes into the local water, it’s pollution. But if [we] pour it in our drinking water, it’s no longer a pollutant. All of a sudden like magic it’s a beneficial public health measure.”
Is it? More than 500 peer-reviewed studies show that at the low concentrations found in our water (1 part per million), fluoride causes cancer, brain damage, and—read this carefully—the brown teeth of “dental fluorosis.”
Fluoride in water binds with aluminum (in cooking pans, cans, and other sources), which does terrible damage and causes Alzheimer’s disease.
In Ohio, the regional poison center says that a tube of toothpaste has enough fluoride to kill a 25-pound child.
The vast majority of dentists buy it hook, line and sinker!
They will repeat what they are told in dental school and in their ongoing professional literature. They will defend the decision of the ADA to support fluoridation and administration of toxic fluoride pills. But dental school provides no training in toxicology, the nervous system, health and disease, or nutrition. Dentists know teeth, and the ADA has bought into a few very sketchy, very old studies that supposedly showed drinking chemicals to have an anti-cavity effect. (You can prove anything you want to, depending on who pays for the studies!)
Almost all other first-world nations ban or do not use fluoride. My point isn’t to denigrate dentists. It’s to point out that you should look to them for what they’re an expert in—and not things they are NOT expert in.
Dr. E.H. Bronner, Albert Einstein’s nephew, was a research chemist, and these are some of his comments:
“Fluoridation of water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide…Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found….Sodium fluoride is entirely different from organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies…to build and strengthen our bones and our teeth…This organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate, derived from proper foods, is an edible organic salt, insoluble in water and assimilable by the human body, whereas the non-organic sodium fluoride used in fluoridated water is instant poison to the body and fully water soluble. The body refuses to assimilate it.”
He says, “…laboratory experimentation…and actual medical experience, have both revealed that instead of preserving of promoting ‘dental health,’ fluoridated drinking water destroys teeth, before adulthood and after, by the destructive mottling and other pathological conditions it actually causes in them, and also creates other very grave pathological conditions in the internal organisms of bodies consuming it….that any so-called ‘doctors’ would persuade a civilized nation to add voluntarily a deadly poison to its drinking water systems is unbelievable….Sodium fluoride water solutions are the cheapest and most effective rat killers known to chemists: colorless, odorless, tasteless; no antidote, no remedy, no hope: instant and complete extermination of rats.””
Let’s get it OUT of our water. Use an R.O. system to filter your water. I have trained myself to ALWAYS have a re-useable bottle of filtered, alkaline water in my purse, so I’m never forced to drink from a drinking fountain at the gym, church, shopping, etc.
I live in one of the few counties in the U.S. to stand strong against forced medication, administered via the water supply. That’s mostly thanks to the repeated efforts of Ken and Rae Howard, founders of our health food stores, The Good Earth. Props to them!
And, I understand we have a highly educated HOLISTIC dentist here in Utah Valley. If you live near here, you can get your amalgam fillings removed, and get fluoride-free treatment, and non-toxic root-canal alternatives, from Dr. Wendell Robertson in south county.
Dr. Garon Larson in Alpine, who posts here now and then, is a passionate advocate for a plant-based diet, not only in his own life, but in his practice as well, so that’s another dental practice to support for other reasons. Of course I love Dr. Michelle Jorgenson, one of those chosen for GreenSmoothieGirl Makeover, in American Fork. She teaches her patients about the importance of eating a whole-foods, plant-based, alkaline diet….because acids are so destructive to dental health.
Let me mention briefly that amalgam fillings contain mercury, which crack easily, off-gas and cross the blood-brain barrier to poison the brain. And root canals cause a tremendous amount of disease, and if you are suffering with an unknown malady, you may want to look at whether infection and chemicals implanted by root canals are at “root of the problem” (sorry, bad pun). More about those two issues this week.
