Fluoride Symptoms: This is a very polarizing debate: One side says that “fluoride in water is known to prevent tooth decay”while the other side says that “fluoride is toxic and has resulted in deaths from acute poisoning.”
Causes: Many cities actually add fluoride to the water which is why it is many water supplies. To fluoridate or not to fluoridate?
Health Concerns: An active ingredient in many pesticides and rodenticides is fluoride. which is accutely more poisonous than lead. Overdose leads to serious toxic symptoms. Some experts feel that water fluoridation can lead to cancer, diabetes, thyroid and neurological disorders, heart disease, arthritis and osteoporosis.
Action Level: Any level is frequently undesirable.
Here is what one expert says: “Fluoride and fluoridation will go down as one of the greatest controversies of the 20th century. Up until the early 1940’s, fluorine’s effect on life was always deemed poisonous. It was proven to be altering enzymes used by living organisms to carry out a multitude of essential processes. Fluorine, the most reactive element on the planet, is also the strongest free radical. Scientists in the 1930’s and 1940’s experimented with this element to create the most deadly nerve gasses, rocket fuel, and radioactive U235 for the bomb. As a wood preservative, rodenticide and insecticide, fluorine compounds are second to none. As an Orthodontist, I began investigating the increasingly prevalent lines and spots that I saw on the enamel of children. Like rings on a tree, they indicate excessive fluorine exposure. I started to ask the question, ‘How does fluorine cause these marks?’ Chronic doses of fluoride, like arsenic and lead, accumulate in our bodies causing a blockage in the way cells breathe and leads to the malformation of collagen. Cancer, diabetes, thyroid and neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, heart disease, arthritis and osteoporosis have all been linked to chronic fluoride ingestion. We are now exposed to increasing doses of fluoride from toothpaste, rinses, water, food, medicines, showering, bathing, and even the air that we breathe. Our environment has become a literal fluoride dumping ground.”
Draw your own conclusions… but we can remove it.
