On Fluoride and Fluoridation Causing/Contributing To Cancer & Other Diseases (3)

More people have died in the last 30 years from cancer connected with fluoridation than all the military deaths in the entire history of the United States.

FLUORIDE IN FOOD: IT ISN'T JUST THE WATER

Adding fluoride to the drinking water causes bioaccumulation in our cells, year after year. If fluoride is in the water, it's everywhere:

  • growing vegetables and fruit
  • washing vegetables and fruit
  • in the meat of animals who have drunk fluoridated water
  • in toothpaste
  • in canned foods
  • in processed foods
  • in soft drinks
  • in beer

A 1998 laboratory analysis done at Sequoia Analytical Labs in California showed very high concentrations of fluoride in the following foods:

  • Dole pineapple, canned
  • Snapple
  • Coke Classic
  • Hansen's soda
  • Minute Maid orange juice
  • Gerber strawberry juice for babies
  • Amstel Lite beer
  • Rice Dream
  • Sunny Delight orange drink
  • Pepsi

Another analysis done in 1998 by Jupiter Environmental Labs in Florida showed similar findings:

food......................................fluoride in PPM (parts per million)

Gerber White Grape juice____ 3.5
Gatorade___________________.44
Diet Coke_________________1.12
Lipton Ice Tea_______________.58
Sprite______________________.73
Hawaiian Punch______________.85

Last one for now. A study in the Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry:

food.........................................fluoride in PPM (parts per million)

Welch's 100% Grape juice_____2.6
Ocean Spray Cranapple_______1.8
Hi-C Apple-grape_____________1.16
Minute Maid Grape___________1.25
Minute Maid White Grape______3.0
Gerber's White Grape_________6.8

And it's not just the juices: Froot Loops cereal was found to have 2.1 ppm by Expert Chemical Analysis of San Diego.

These are just a few examples of fluoride levels in some common grocery store items consumed by most Americans. The point is that there's an notable fluoride content in many, if not the majority of processed foods in our refrigerators and pantries. That's not mentioning our fruits and vegetables, even if they're "organic' but grown with city water. We're taking in a ton of fluoride from ubiquitous sources. It accumulates over the years in our collagen, bones, and teeth.

HIRED GUN BACKS DOWN

In 1973, British Columbia was considering mandatory fluoridation. They gave the job of researching and reporting the topic to Richard Foulkes, MD. Foulkes then wrote a 2000 page report and recommended that legislation begin to make fluoride mandatory in Canada. Based on that work, Canada began to fluoridate.

Then something happened. Little by little, Foulkes found out that the statistics that his researchers had based their findings on were largely falsified. It took Foulkes years to run down the truth, but by 1992, he shocked the country by backing down from his original recommendation:

"I now hold a different view...the fluoridation of community water supplies can no longer be held to be either safe or effective in the reduction of dental caries..Therefore, the practice should be abandoned."
- Foulkes, 1992

Foulkes is not some tree-hugger from Santa Cruz. He is one of Canada's top scientific researchers. Many areas of Canada listened and stopped fluoridating. Want to read a first-hand story about lies and greed and disregard for human health and crooked deals between government and industry? Read Dr. Foulkes stuff.

Another pro-fluoride Canadian scientist, Dr. Hardy Limeback, changed his tune when he learned that 30-65% of Canadian children now have visible signs of overexposure to fluoride: dental fluorosis. Limeback:

"Children under three should never use fluoridated toothpaste. Or drink fluoridated water."
- Toronto Star Michael Downey interview with Limeback

Such research also prompted the Canadian Dental Association in 1992 to keep fluoride supplements from children of three and under. But attacking fluoride supplement pills is just a smokescreen to protect fluoridation of drinking water. Most research has found all the above ill effects at concentrations even less than the standard 1 PPM that is in most city water. It's not the supplements that are killing us; it's the fluoridated water.

FLUORIDATION IN OTHER COUNTRIES

If fluoridation is as safe and effective as the American Dental Association says it is, why don't other countries do it?

The U.S. is nowhere near the top of any health list which compares other countries of the world, as we saw in Chapter One. So what are the healthy countries doing?

If fluoride is so great, why have the following countries either never fluoridated or else stopped when they found out how bad it was?:

West Germany, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Japan, Italy, Scotland
- Smith, G.
- Foulkes (1992)

Only about 2% of the population of Europe is subjected to fluoridated water.
- Yiamouyiannis, p. 208

LOCKED IN

Three reasons why we're so far down the road of toxic fluoridation, it's hard to come back:

1. To reverse the policy of fluoridation now would be for the ADA, the EPA, the FDA, and the USPHS, Congress, and all the municipal water polluters in the US to admit that they made a mistake. Not a good move for re-election.

2. To criticize fluoridation as a policy would challenge the billions of tons of fluoride being released into the air and water by the nuclear, aluminum, phosphate, steel, glass, cement, and petrochemical industries.

3. If fluoridation stopped, a multi-million dollar gravy train of research grants, propaganda contracts, and sweetheart arrangements between government and industry would vaporize overnight.

FREUD AND THE SLIME FACTOR

It may not be a good idea to blind ourselves to the presence of cold-blooded 24-karat Evil as it exists in the world today. But it's not like some madman in a James Bond movie with terminal acne, dressed in a metallic suit, speaking terrible English from his office in a hollowed-out volcano somewhere, threatening to destroy the world. No, no. These guys are polite and well-groomed, and have impeccable credentials. More like Al Pacino where he's the devil in that movie with Keanu Reeves - likable, urbane, well-traveled, appreciates a fine wine, knows when to say that one perfect remark to make things work. Or even Billy Crystal where he's the devil in that Woody Allen movie - very charming and confident. These are not people to be confronted and defeated. No, these individuals advance. Their expertise is in how to get on, pageantry, presentation.

Beneath them, are the ones who do the work. Dr. Y chronicles a group of low-level bureaucrats and opinion makers whose unsupported, semi-literate propaganda gets constant media play. Propaganda can't be brilliant, and doesn't have to be true or make sense. It just has to be simple and be repeated over and over every day. These same pretenders and "social scientists" are coincidentally the stable of "experts" who are continually given extensive media space to criticize anything alternative or holistic that threatens organized medicine. Doctors of the evening. Flaccid guns for hire. Their tactics are low-level and powerful, according to the Bernays formula:

  • conduct no research
  • avoid the real issues when possible
  • never engage in any debate where actual research data will be used
  • attack the opponent, not the issue
  • don't try to instruct, or lead through a process of step-by-step education
  • persuade; do not inform
  • use emotional phrases to distract people from the real issues
  • when confronted, change the subject
  • cover up the real studies; never refer to them
  • pretend there is some favorable research by using phrases like "Numerous studies have shown." or "Research has proven..." or
    "Scientific investigators have found.." but then never cite anything
  • always harp on the "superior education and training" of the fluoridation people, pretending that the most educated doctors and professionals favor fluoridation, even though Dr Y thoroughly proves that most of the propaganda has been written by non-science people, generally with public relations or mass-psychology backgrounds
  • keep repeating unfounded falsehoods about the safety and effectiveness of proven poisons
  • remind people how many decades fluoridation has been going on
  • favor mandatory fluoridation legislation, removing all opportunity for free discussion when possible
  • try to keep all opposing evidence from being seen or considered by any policy-making agency
  • omit pertinent data from actual studies

Above all, never stop repeating the same falsehoods, over and over.

Like him or not, we must respect Freud's grasp of the human mind and what motivates it. Freud is the father of psychoanalysis, and even though that profession has largely fallen by the wayside, diluted by a thousand social servants, his original principles have found a home: the media. Shaping mass opinion in the "proper" mold - the PC lemmings can be guided to practically any cliff the controllers can dream up.

REALITY CHECK

Most people have no opportunity to have the facts of the issues presented to them, because of the virtual blackout of information in the media. That's why all this seems so odd. With the help of the colossal disinformation machine in operation, according to the American Dental Association probably about 62% of the drinking water in the U.S. is fluoridated. (www.ada.org) But some courts have shown the other side of the picture, and beginning to see through the standard shell-games of the pro-fluoridationists.

In a famous legal battle over fluoridation in the 1950s we find the judge letting us have it:

"By [fluoridating the water] the municipal authorities...arrogate to themselves the sole right to decide what medicine is good for the health of the water consumers, and thereby the municipal water system becomes a direct conduit for the transportation of medicine from the apothecary's pestle to the patient, without the latter's consent. Thus will the people be deprived of a very important part of their constitutional liberty under our republican form of government and the police state will be substituted for the police power of the state."
- Justice Donworth in KAUL vs. CITY OF CHEHALIS
from Robotry, p 18

Two decades later a Pennsylvania Supreme Court judge made a meticulous review of all available research, both pro and con, before entering his 1979 injunction against fluoridation. His Honor was less than impressed with the wit of the fluoridationists:

"The proponents of fluoridation do nothing more than try to impugn the objectivity of those who oppose fluoridation."
- Judge John Flaherty
Pennsylvania Supreme Court

Judge Flaherty wrote a letter to the Mayor of Auckland, New Zealand stating:

"In my view the evidence is quite convincing that the addition of sodium fluoride to the public water supply at one part per million is extremely deleterious to the human body, and.there is no convincing evidence to the contrary."
- The Arthritis Trust, 1994

THE LEGAL NOVELTY OF FLUORIDATION

Fluoridation is a totally new idea, from a Constitutional point of view. It's nothing like adding chlorine. Although chlorine has toxic side effects, it actually does something beneficial to the water - chlorine purifies the water. Fluoride does no such thing. Fluoride is a drug, a medication that supposedly has beneficial effects for a small percentage of the population.

"The purpose of administering fluoride is not to render the water supply pure and potable but to contaminate it with a dangerous toxic drug for the purpose of administering mass medication to the consumer without regard to age or physical condition."
- Alesen, p 16

In other words, without consent. And giving drugs without consent is in direct violation of international codes of war behavior, like Nuremberg and the Geneva Accords. Commenting on the famous KAUL case above, Judge Hamley had this to say:

"What future proposals may be made to treat noncontagious disease by adding ingredients to our water supply, or food or air, only time will tell. When that day arrives, those who treasure their personal liberty will look in vain for a constitutional safeguard. The answer will be : "You gave the Constitution away in the Kaul case."
- Robotry, p. 18

CONVERSATION STOPPER

Want to stop a fluoridation advocate in his tracks? Ask him to cite exact legitimate studies that prove fluoridation prevents tooth decay. Then find them. Besides the few bogus political documents by Dean and Cox, cited above, there aren't any. Fluoride research is a huge area. The fact that most studies have been almost completely suppressed for the past 50 years mars many illusions about the democratic process.

If people want fluoride in their drinking water, let them buy supplements. Fluoridation of municipal water has nothing to do with health. It's just politics.

A THOUSAND LITTLE BATTLES

The fluoridation battle is being waged back and forth in the individual cities and towns across America. Many districts have never fluoridated. Many others have recently decided to begin fluoridation. Still another group of 63 cities, since 1900, which had fluoridated for a long time, have voted to stop. (Jones) It's an ongoing struggle, with million of dollars of fluoridiot funding available for presentations, flyers, and media ads in any community where the issue is coming up for a vote. If fluoridation is defeated this year, it may appear on the ballot again the following year if the city is on the Priority Schedule.

California's Priority Schedule is a list of 167 communities in California which are now being targeted by the formidable alliance of fluoridation interests. (Table 64434-A) Doesn't look like they'll run out of cash any time in this life: support comes from the slush funds and lobbyists of the mega industrial polluters who wish to maintain the public water works as their private sewer. They want to keep this 50-year gravy train rolling, and the best way to do that is marketing and promotion. Here are the Top Ten of the 1999 Priority Schedule in California:

Helix Water District
Ventura, CA
Daly City, CA
Escondido, CA
Santa Maria CA
Fair Oaks Water District
Manhattan Beach, CA
Sweetwater Authority
Santa Barbara, CA
El Dorado Irrigation District

It floors you to realize the immense amount of scientific research and legal opinion proving the toxicity of fluoride since the 1930s, that has been ignored and suppressed. Why did all those people do all that work? With every new city that places fluoridation on the ballot, all the old arguments are dragged out, as if it's from scratch every time, without the benefit of input from all the other hundreds of communities that have gone through this same battle. Divide and conquer - worked for the Romans.

Antifluoridationist information programs are often privately funded grassroots little organizations, but their influence is being felt across the nation. With the rise of the Internet, it is getting harder to keep people from learning the real effects about fluoride. For these reasons, clean water is very slow in making progress against the totalitarian forces of mass medications. But the struggle never ends.

In this short interview, the above-quoted Dr. Dean Burk, former head of National Cancer Institute Research, calls water fluoridation "public murder" and speaks of "forcing people to kill themselves". Dr Burk also presents a graph he calls "one of the most conclusive bits of scientific evidence he'd seen in 50 years of professional experience" which shows the dramatic rise in cancer incidence after introduction of water fluoridation in cities having introduced fluoride vs cities who refused to fluoridate their water supply.

2 Study: Age-specific fluoride exposure in drinking water and osteosarcoma (United States)

This Harvard University research study from 2006 shows a possible link between osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in young men and exposure to fluoridated water (when the exposure occurred in the patients' 6th, 7th and 8th years). A 2011 study titled "An assessment of bone fluoride and osteosarcoma" was unable to refute the first study's key finding of the age-window of vulnerability.
