In early 2010, there was a huge volcanic eruption in Iceland. Currently, animals in southern Iceland are at risk of fluoride poisoning if they inhale or ingest the ash from the eruption. Fluoride poisoning can lead to internal bleeding, long-term bone damage, and tooth loss. According to BBC News (April 19, 2010): “The fluoride in the ash creates acid in the animals’ stomachs, corroding the intestines and causing hemorrhages. It also binds with calcium in the bloodstream and after heavy exposure over a period of days makes bones frail, even causing teeth to crumble.”
Most folks never “connect the dots” between the tragic poisoning of these animals due to a natural event, and the intentional poisoning of human beings through excessive fluoride exposure each and every day. The practice of adding fluoride to your tap water began in the 1940s, but contrary to popular opinion, fluoride doesn’t’ stoop tooth decay at all. Scientific studies actually prove that fluoride is neurotoxic and causes birth defects, cancer, and osteoporosis. Fluoride also damages the immune, digestive, and respiratory systems as well as the kidneys, liver, brain, and thyroid.
A 1936 issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association stated that fluoride at the 1 ppm (part per million) concentration is as toxic as arsenic and lead. There are more than 500 peer reviewed studies documenting adverse effects of fluoride ranging from cancer to brain damage. And yet, municipalities throughout the USA actually purchase this product and then drip it into the public water supply. Dr. Charles G. Heyd, former President of the AMA, declares, “I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable.”
There is no scientific evidence that fluoride is a beneficial additive to water, and in fact there is overwhelming scientific evidence that proves, without a doubt, that fluoride is harmful. It actually causes teeth to rot and crumble! The bottom line is that all federal health agencies have known these facts for years, but have been controlled by the political interests of the nuclear arms, aluminum, and phosphate manufactures to keep it a secret.
