Is Your Fluoride Exposure Causing You Health Problems?
Use these facts to help you decide

W e're all exposed to fluoride these days whether we know it or not. Given that fluoride is actually prescribed by dentists for teeth and by doctors for bones, you'd think that fluoride is entirely safe, but would you be correct?

Here are some facts you might like to consider in answering that question:


* The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists fluoride as a hazardous material and classifies it as toxic waste. It is a cumulative poison, meaning it builds up in the body over time.

* In the presence of aluminum, fluoride crosses the blood-brain barrier. It is a neurotoxic chemical that interrupts brain nerve cell function. Documented downstream effects include Alzheimer's, ahterosclerosis, intertility, birth defects, diabetes, cancer, and lowered IQ.

* In the United States, over 75% of the water supply contains fluoride. "The level of fluoride the government allows the public is based on scientifically fraudulent information and altered reports. People can be harmed simply by drinking water." ( Dr. Robert Carton, Ph.D, former Environmental Protection Agency Scientist (20 years), Food & Water Journal, Summer 1998)

* " ...the use of drinking water containing as little as 1.2 - 3.0 parts per million of fluoride will cause such developmental disturbances in bones as osteosclerosis, spondylosis and osteopetrosis, as well as goiter" Journal American Dental Association, October 1944, Editorial

* Fluoride is a carcinogen. For example, In fluoridated communities, the bone cancer rate is six times higher among young males.

* Scientific evidence suggests fluoride damages the hippocampus, the part of the brain required for memory and learning new behavior. This means people can still behave in repetitive, learned ways, but have difficulty processing new information.

* Fluoride is added to some medications to increase the length of time it takes the body to break it down so its effects will last longer.The most popular antidepressant, Prozac, contains 94% fluoride. Paxil, Seroxat and Aropax are also fluorinated drugs.

* The Nazis used fluoride in concentration camps to keep inmates passive because when under the effects of fluoride, the prisoners showed decreased resistance to authority.

* Fluoride is used in deadly nerve gas, a substance developed by I.G. Farben, a Nazi-are conglomerate in cooperation with Alcoa Aluminum.

* Alcoa's post- World War II propoganda was key to US cities fluoridating water.

* The purported benefit of fluoride for protecting teeth is largely unsubstantiated scientifically: As far back as1980, the Chief Dental Officer, British Ministry of Health and Social Security stated:
"...no laboratory test has ever shown that 1 part per million fluoride in the drinking water reduces tooth decay."

* Build-up of fluoride results in dental fluorisis. According to Dr. Geoffrey Smith, Dental Surgeon, this is
"an irreversible pathological condition ... the first readily detectable clinical symptom of previous chronic fluoride poisoning. To suggest we should ignore such a sign is as irrational as saying that the blue-black line which appears on the gums due to chronic lead poisoning is of no significance because it doesn't cause any pain or discomfort."

* Ingestion of fluoride results in increased bone density but decreased bone strength, making bones more brittle and more likely to break.
"The highest fluoride content in bone ash was observed in women with severe osteoporosis"
Alhava E.M., et al., The Effect of Drinking Water Fluoridation on the Fluoride Content, Strength and Mineral Density of Human Bone, Acta Orthop. Scand., 51, 1980

* High fluoride exposure can produce nausea & ruptures of the stomach lining.

* Fluoride can damage the thyroid gland, lead to hyperparathyroidism - uncontrolled secretion of parathyroid hormones.

* Countries that have banned fluoride include China, India, Great Britain, Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Japan, Hungary & The Netherlands.

* Fluoride is a common ingredient in roach and rat poisons.

* "Fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons, probably because of their capacity to modify the metabolism of cells by changing the permeability of the cell membrane and by inhibiting certain enzyme systems." Journal of the American Medical Association, Sept 18, 1943, Editorial.


1. Stop it from getting in to your body.

Eliminate all sources you can, such as:

     Foods with added fluorine. Go here to find out what foods and how much:  http://www.poisonfluoride.com
     Dental treatments to protect teeth, including placed under dental sealants
     Most toothpastes,
     Bottled juice, bottled water, sodas, green and black tea, non-organic wine and grape juices. (They are treated with cryolite, which contains fluoride and often prepared with fluoridated water).
     Teflon pans,
     Fluorodated salt,
     Prescription medications
(estimates are that 30-50% of these drugs now contain fluoride)
     Anesthetics such as Isoflurane, Sevoflurane, and Enflurane,
     Insectisides for crops,
     Pesticides for the home.

2. Eliminate fluoride from your drinking water. To do this, remember that fluoride does NOT evaporate from water, so there is no point in letting water sit out. Boiling, freezing and basic filters don't remove it. Actually removing it requires a reverse osmosis filter. If you're out and need to buy some safe bottled water, make sure it is natural spring water, because that does not contain fluoride. You can also distill your drinking water if you live in a fluoridated community.

3. Get well over 200 mg. of Vitamin C per day. John Yiamouyiannis, Ph.D reports that " If you take over 200 mg of vitamin C per day that is all you really need for removing fluoride. In three to six months you should have about 99% of it out which is good enough."

4. Supplement with iodine, calcium, magnesium and boron . These minerals increase the rate of elimination.

5. Keep your liver clean and your bile flowing so your body has a clear pathway to eliminate it.
