Three Toxic Reasons To End Water Fluoridation
Water fluoridation has been hailed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as “one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century,” for its purported ability to prevent tooth decay. But, you can’t believe everything the government tells you…Behind this glowing accolade lies a glaring scientific truth: fluoridation is one of the greatest public health threats of modern times. Below are three toxic reasons to end water fluoridation.
It started in the early 1950‘s, and today, water fluoridation continues, with buckets of sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate, and fluorosilicic acid (FSA) being dumped into our drinking water. By definition, it’s forced medication, yet millions are unaware of the effects.
Historically, dentists have asserted that water fluoridation is safe. But they’re starting to catch on to the truth. In an interview with fellow and past president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and author of Whole-Body Dentistry, Mark A. Breiner, DDS said that, “Adding fluoride to drinking water is a massive human experiment.” I couldn’t agree more. This experiment underscores three reasons why we should end water fluoridation now.
Reason #1: Fluoride causes joint pain and flourosis
Once ingested, fluoride compounds attack the structural integrity of our insides. Collagen, a web-like network connecting our skeletal system to muscles, is torn apart by fluoride. We feel it as joint stiffness, ligament damage, and aching bones. This same mechanism leads to browning of teeth, an outcome known as fluorosis. A whopping 23-30% of children living in areas with fluoridated drinking water suffer from these side effects.
Reason #2: Fluoride can cause cancer
Cancer rates are at an all-time high. The best way to reverse the trend would be to highlight environmental cancer risks like consuming fluoridated water. As early as 1984, laboratory studies began showing how fluoride damaged the DNA of mammalian cells, giving rise to uncontrolled cell growth. This didn’t stop the push to continue the mass fluoride medication experiment.
Physicians on the front lines of illness are seeing the side effects. When asked about water fluoridation, Dr. Gary Mezo, a Family Practice & Emergency PA-C/ARNP for 27 years told me that he is “against water fluoridation simply based on the multiple cancer risks associated with it, particularly bone cancer.” Population studies show that those who drink fluoridated water are up to seven times more likely to suffer from bone cancer.
Reason #3: Ingesting fluoride doesn’t prevent cavities (dental caries)
Fluoride in the water doesn’t protect against cavities. I don’t care if a million dentists believe this to be true, it simply isn’t. Studies on fluoride ingestion prove it. It’s pretty straightforward. Those who swallow fluoride, do not have less cavities than those who do not. In 2001, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made this information public, stating that, “The prevalence of dental caries in a population is not inversely related to the concentration of fluoride in enamel, and a higher concentration of enamel fluoride is not necessarily more efficacious in preventing dental caries.”
To protect yourself from cavities, Dr. Andrew M. Goldsmith, DDS., told me via email that the main objective should not be fluoridation of water. Instead, he asserts that it “should be focused on education and thereby improving oral hygiene and decreasing the consumption of fermentable carbohydrates,for example sugar.” In addition, add a xylitol based toothpaste to your daily brushing routine and you’re sure to thwart cavities.
Water is perfect the way it is. Add any single ingredient to it and you screw it up. It’s the only substance that can exist as a solid, liquid or gas at temperatures here on Earth. The two hydrogen atoms that share an affinity for oxygen cause the water molecule to be V-shaped. These unique properties allow it to give life to everything on the planet, all by itself. Any single impurity strips water of its molecular supremacy. Add a dash of salt to boiling water, it cools off. Toss a fistful of it on ice, it melts faster. Similarly, when we drink water laced with fluoride our biochemistry changes for the worst.
