Fluoride in Water

Fluoride in Water – Fluoride in Drinking Water

Remove Fluoride From Water

 

There are justified reasons 97% of Western Europe has chosen to remove fluoride in water.  For example, the problematic nature of compulsory medicating of the population for one.  And since the 1990’s there have been animal and human studies done by the National Research Council indicating fluoride ingestion carries:

 

1.  Risk to the brain – Dementia-like adverse effects on IQ levels.

2.  Risk to the thyroid gland – Doses of fluoride (0.01-0.03 mg/kg/day) achievable by drinking fluoridated water, may reduce the function of the thyroid among individuals with low-iodine intake. Reduction of thyroid activity can lead to loss of mental acuity, depression and weight gain.

3.  Risk to bones – Fluoride in drinking water can diminish bone strength and increase the risk for bone fracture.

4.  Risk for bone cancer – Animal and human studies – including a recent study from a team of Harvard scientists have found a connection between fluoride and a serious form of bone cancer (osteosarcoma) in males under the age of 20. The connection between fluoride and osteosarcoma has been described by the National Toxicology Program as “biologically plausible.” Up to half of adolescents who develop osteosarcoma die within a few years of diagnosis.

5.  Risk to kidney patients – People with kidney disease have a heightened susceptibility to fluoride toxicity. The heightened risk stems from an impaired ability to excrete fluoride from the body. As a result, toxic levels of fluoride can accumulate in the bones, intensify the toxicity of aluminum build-up, and cause or exacerbate a painful bone disease known as renal osteodystrophy.

Fluoride in water also poses added burden and risk to low-income communities. Rather than being beneficial to low-income communities, fluoridation is harmful.

Low-income families are least able to avoid fluoridated water. Due to the high costs of buying bottled water or water filters, low-income households will be least able to avoid fluoride once it’s added to the water. As a result, these families will be least capable of following the recommendation that infants should not receive fluoridated water.   Low-income families are at greater risk of fluoride toxicity. In addition, it is now well established that individuals with inadequate nutrient intake have a significantly increased susceptibility to fluoride’s toxic effects. Since nutrient deficiencies are most common in low-income communities, and since diseases known to increase susceptibility to fluoride are most prevalent in low-income areas, it is likely that these communities will be at greatest risk from suffering adverse effects associated with fluoride exposure. According to Dr. Kathleen Thiessen, a member of the National Research Council’s review of fluoride toxicity: “I would expect low-income communities to be more vulnerable to at least some of the effects of drinking fluoridated water.”

25 Studies Prove Fluoride Reduces Your IQ

 

December, 3, 2011,   By Dr. Mercolafluoride ontario, fluoride orillia

(source:  Mercola.com)

Quick Facts:

  • In the past 13 months 31 communities have voted to stop fluoridating their water supplies, 10 in Canada, 2 in New Zealand and 19 in the U.S.  The total number of people freed from forced fluoridation in this period is over 2.5 million. Meanwhile, councilors are pushing for the discontinuation of fluoridation in New York City.
  • Fluoride is a toxic drug. Fluoridating water is reckless, as you cannot control the dose ingested, or who receives it, and there’s no medical supervision. Water fluoridation clearly violates the individual’s right to informed consent to medicine.
  • The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) urges communities to pressure local water departments to place a warning on the water bill, stating that parents should not use fluoridated water to mix baby formula. Other action items are also specified.
  • There are now 25 studies showing that fluoride is associated with IQ reduction, even at fluoride levels as low as 0.3 to 3 parts per million, which overlaps the range in many American communities (0.7 to 1.2 ppm). FAN argues that it is reckless to expose a baby to up to 300 times more fluoride than present in mothers’ milk (0.004 ppm).
  • There are very good reasons for fluoride free water. It is a drug. If you wanted some to ingest, you’d have to get a prescription. And there are good reasons for why we don’t purposely add any other drugs to our water.

health and fluoride, fluoride an healthAs Dr. Connett says:

“We don’t use the public water supply to deliver medicine because it’s a stupid thing to do. You can’t control the dose. You can’t control who gets it. [There’s] no individual supervision. Of course it violates the individual’s right to informed consent to medicine.

So, first of all, you start by saying this is a crazy thing to do, for most people. Then you say, what are the dangers? I spent 15 years pursuing the dangers, but then I woke up one day and said, if it doesn’t work anyway; why would we take any risk at all? Why would we lower a kid’s IQ by even a small few number of IQ points? Why would we run the risk of making our bones more brittle when we get old? Why would we run the risk of arthritis? Why would we run the risk of lowering thyroid function?

 

Water without fluoride!

“They can’t put citizens down anymore. They can’t pull rank on citizens. They can’t say, “I’m a doctor, I’m a dentist and you’re a nobody, go away.” Because the citizen just holds up the book and say, “Have you read this book? [The Case against Fluoride]” And when they say no, ‘Well, you better go read this book and come back with a scientific response.” Which, incidentally, is what I said to the Ministry of Health. Stop putting millions of dollars into public relations fluff; pamphlets with no references. You’ve got a challenge here. Here is a book with 80 pages of references.

Every single fact is backed up with scientific references to the primary peer reviewed literature. Give a scientific response to it, and if you cannot give a scientific response then the onus is on you to stop this. If you can’t support a major public health policy with good science then that’s the signal to stop the policy and not the signal to squash the science, which they have been doing for 60 years.”

 

Good News from North America – Remove Fluoride from Water

Dr. Connett has also been traveling across North America. A particularly exciting meeting took place in a public library in London, Ontario. Citizens had arranged a massive billboard for the event to draw people in, and the attendance was so great they had to turn about 30 people away as all the seats were taken. More than 400 people took in the presentation.

 

Fluoride Drinking Water – No Thank You

“They heard the science. They heard that it wasn’t effective, and they heard that it wasn’t safe. There’s no adequate margin of safety, particularly when it comes to protecting your brain.”

The truth is also gaining a foothold in Calgary, where the council has now voted against water fluoridation twice. In the ratifying vote, they voted 12 to 2 to end water fluoridation. Waterloo, Ontario already voted to end fluoridation last year, so the dominoes are beginning to fall in Canada. Since October, 2010 when citizens voted to halt fluoridation in Waterloo, Ontario another 10 Canadian communities have halted fluoridation.

For a list of these communities as well as the American and NZ communities who have done likewise, please see the Fluoride Action Networks website. At this point, British Columbia and the province of Quebec are close to fluoridation-free.

This will bring much needed pressure on the U.S.

Peter Vallone, Jr. a well respected councilor in New York, has already introduced a bill to get fluoridation out of New York City. And once New York City stops water fluoridation, the rest of the U.S. will have no choice but to follow suit. The movement is also gaining momentum in Austin, Texas.

“You’ve got to remember, it is as easy to stop this practice as turning off a tap. But to turn off that tap, you need political will. If we have the political will in our communities, we can turn that tap off. But to turn that tap off, we have to have people informed, and we have to have people organized.”

Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are excellent tools to help spread the truth about fluoride, and to get organized locally.

The Fluoride Action Network is also urging communities to pressure their local water departments to place a warning on the water bill, stating that parents should not use fluoridated water to mix baby formula. In November 2006, the American Dental Association has issued this warning to its members—the dentists—but has failed miserably when it comes to actually warning parents.

 

Fluoride and Health – Health and Fluoride

“Even at the lower 0.7 parts per million, which is the new recommended level by the DHHS; even at 0.7 parts per million, a bottle-fed baby is getting 175 times more fluoride than a breastfed baby,” Dr. Connett warns.

“… We now have 25 studies that indicate that fluoride in water is associated with the lowering of IQ. A recent study from Ding et.al… [published] in the Journal of Hazardous Materials… found a lowering of IQ at low levels – not moderate, not high levels, (but) low levels. The range of the [fluoride levels in the] water in the children that they studied was between 0.3 and 3 parts per million. This overlaps the concentration range used in U.S. cities (0.7 -1.2 ppm

They were able to correlate the level of fluoride in the urine, which is a measure of individual exposure to fluoride… there was a very strong linear correlation with lowering of IQ and fluoride concentrations in the urine; very strong.

… What parent in their right mind would put the interest of their children’s teeth, even if it worked (to swallow fluoride), above the interest of their brains? It’s literally a no-brainer isn’t it?

Remove / Reduce Fluoride from Water?  Yes we do.  Up to 99.75% reduction:

Health Effects of Injested Fluoride

… What Ding et.al showed was that for each one part per million of fluoride in the urine, there was a lowering of IQ by 0.59 IQ points. That doesn’t sound much, but when you shift the IQ of the whole population… you will reduce the number of geniuses in your society, and you will increase the number of mentally handicapped. Believe me, in a competitive world, you want all the geniuses that you can get, and you want to minimize the number of children who have to be treated for mental development problems.”
