I was reading some news, and was surprised to see this story…. I mean… after all… the FDA, the AMA (American Medical Association), the ADA (American Dental Association), the EPA, and many other government and Western Medical “experts” tell us fluoride in our drinking water is healthy.

They line up to tell us fluoridated water is not only healthy, it prevents cavities.

They tell us fluoride in our drinking water can not harm us.

They tell us fluoride in our drinking water makes us healthier.

They tell us the people who protest and speak about about the hazards of fluoride in our drinking water are alarmists, who don’t know what they are talking about.

And they tell us it is better to leave our health to the “experts”

And of course we already know how these “experts” are never… ever… ever wrong. How they always (sarcasm) have our best interests at heart.

So I am positive they will be as shocked as I was that this news actually got out to the public.

Exposure to Fluoride May Lower Children’s Intelligence

And this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Think you are not at risk? Well, if you live in the USA 70% of our tap water is contaminated by fluoride.

A study published in Environmental Health Perspectives which is a publication of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences The link can be found here http://ehp03.niehs.nih.gov/article/fetchArticle.action?articleURI=info%3Adoi%2F10.1289%2Fehp.1003171.

Here is the Abstract of the study. Judge for yourself if fluoride in water is harmful.

Background: Animal studies show that brain fluoride levels increase with increasing exposure to fluoride. Human studies have indicated an association between high levels of drinking-water fluoride and lower intelligence. Data on the association between serum fluoride and children’s intelligence quotient ((Q) are limited.

Objective: This study was conducted to assess the relationship between serum fluoride and children’s IQ.

Methods: We collected blood samples from 512 children aged 8-13 years from two villages (Wamiao and Xinhuai) in China. We also used minitype fluoride ion selective electrode and Combined Raven’s Test for Rural China (CRT-RC) to measure serum fluoride and children’s IQ.

Results: In Wamiao, the mean (± SD) concentration of fluoride in serum was 0.081± 0.019 mg/L, and average children’s IQ was 92.02 ± 13.00; in Xinhuai, fluoride concentration was 0.041 ± 0.009 mg/L and average IQ was 100.41 ± 13.21. The regression coefficients between serum fluoride and children’s IQ were –0.163 (p = 0.015) in Wiamiao, and 0.054 (p = 0.362) in Xinhuai. Serum fluoride levels were negatively associated with IQ after adjusted for age and sex, the ORs for IQ < 80 across groups with serum fluoride measuring < 0.05, 0.05–0.08, > 0.08 mg/L were 1, 2.22 (95% confidence interval: 1.42–3.47), and 2.48 (95% confidence interval: 1.85–3.32) (p for trend < 0.001) respectively. IQ was not related to family income and parent’s education level. There was a significant positive relation between serum fluoride and drinking-water fluoride.

Conclusions: The results indicated that fluoride in drinking water was highly correlated with serum fluoride, and higher fluoride exposure may affect intelligence among children.

Let’s Read The Conclusion Again!

The results indicated that fluoride in drinking water was highly correlated with serum fluoride, and higher fluoride exposure may affect intelligence among children.

Since consuming fluoride does affect intelligence… Why is it still in our drinking water?

Does a dumb citizenry make a better country?

Does a dumb citizenry lead to inventions that improve the lives of everyone?

Other Damage Done By Fluoride

Here are some of the health effects fluoride has been linked to fluoride…

  • Joint Pain
  • Kidney Damage
  • Liver Damage
  • Damage the tooth-forming cells
  • Fluoride in the pineal gland (located in the brain) can reduce the gland’s synthesis of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate the onset of puberty. Fluoride-treated animals were found to have reduced levels of circulating melatonin and an earlier onset of puberty than untreated animals.
  • Impairs thyroid function
  • Skeletal fluorosis — symptoms similar to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Long-term drinking of fluoridated water has shown an increased risk of hip fracture in the elderly.
  • Bone cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Stomach problems
  • Digestive problems

Fluoride IS a Powerful Poison.

So why is it still in over 70% of the USA drinking water systems?

Contact your city, and state officials. Demand they get the fluoride removed from the drinking water systems.

If they pooh-pooh you. Make sure they do not get re-elected.
