Physicians, Dentists, Scientists & Environmentalists Call End to Fluoridation
asking Congress to end water fluoridation in the United States has been
released by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Over 600 professionals, including
a Nobel Prize winner, officers in the Union that represents Environmental
Protection Agency professionals, and members of the National Research Council
panel on fluoride’s toxicology, have signed the statement.
report urges Congressional members to “recognize that fluoridation
is outdated, has serious risks that far outweigh any minor benefits, violates
sound medical ethics, and denies freedom of choice.”
eight recent events that call for an urgent end to water fluoridation. Among
500-page review of fluoride’s toxicology by the National Research
Council of the National Academies, published in 2006.
from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that found
32 percent of U.S. children have dental fluorosis, which is caused by
American Dental Association’s 2006 policy change, which recommends
not giving fluoridated water to infants for the first 12 months of life.
Harvard University study that found a five- to seven-fold increased risk
of osteosarcoma (bone cancer) among young men who were exposed to fluoride
between the ages of 6 and 8.
CDC’s recognition that fluoride is beneficial in reducing tooth
decay when it’s applied topically, not taken systemically.
statement calls for members of Congress to sponsor a new Congressional Hearing
on Fluoridation that requires those who continue to support water fluoridation
to provide scientific basis, under oath, for their continued recommendations.
to one of the statement’s signers, Dr. Arvid Carlsson, winner of the
2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine, “Fluoridation is against all principles
of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsolete.”
is truly excellent news! Slowly but surely, the truth about fluoride has
been leaking out, and now it may finally have the chance to sink in and
really prompt some major changes.
are new to the site, you’re probably still under the impression that
fluoridated water is a good thing, so this news may come as a surprise.
In reality, fluoride is a dangerous poison that does not help to protect
your teeth when you ingest it via your drinking water. As even the CDC has
admitted, fluoride may help your teeth if it’s applied topically,
but taking it in systemically does not.
it DOES do, as this much-needed statement points out, is:
your risk of bone fractures
Decrease your thyroid function
Lower your IQ
Cause arthritic-like conditions and dental fluorosis
Possibly increase your risk of bone cancer
On top of that, the statement reveals that federal agencies have admitted
that “the industrial grade waste products used to fluoridate over
90 percent of America’s drinking water supplies (fluorosilicate
compounds) have never been subjected to toxicological testing or FDA safety-tested
approval for human ingestion.”
fact that Americans have been drinking fluoridated water for more than 50
years has really been a giant experiment, at the expense of your health.
can learn the underlying corruption and abuses of power that have allowed
fluoride to be shamelessly promoted in the United States in Christopher
Bryon’s The Fluoride
Deception. The publication of this book is one of the eight recent events
that’s referenced in the statement, simply because it reveals so clearly
that industrial interests were behind the early promotion of fluoride.
You Can Avoid Fluoride, and Help to Ban it in Your Water
goes well, this statement should make members of Congress take notice, and
may prompt new regulations about fluoridated water.
then, you can protect yourself from fluoride by using only non-fluoride
toothpaste and not receiving fluoride treatments from your dentist. To remove
fluoride from your drinking water, you must use a reverse osmosis filter.
Be sure that you’re filtering not only the water that you drink, but
also the water you use to wash vegetables, make ice cubes, and cook with.
wondering how to keep your teeth healthy, remember that fluoride was never
the answer in the first place. Eating right and avoiding processed foods
(along with regular cleanings with your natural dentist) will ensure that
your teeth stay healthy naturally.
