Fluoride Kills

fluoride the corrosive chemical hydrfluorosilicic acid spills and eats away concrete --Healthy Kid coalition claims this corrosive chemical if added to our pristine Portland water supply will prevent cavities --Not-- It appears this hydrofluorosilicic acid will eat the enamel right off your children's teeth--that healthy kids do garuntee
Fluoride will erode the enamel off the teeth. High doses of fluoride will cause severe pitting and discoloration of the teeth. Systemic ingestion of fluoride because there is NO way to control the dose once fluoride (hydrofluorosilicic acid) is added into the water system leads to more people suffering from the symptoms of fluorosis.
It is the bright minds that brought us the mercury amalgams and those whom even once endorsed smoking as safe the AMA and ADA are endorsing fluoride like this (hydrofluorosilicic acid )is all the rage. Only drink too much of this fluoride kiddies and the ADA says this product will rob us all of our pearly whites, and weaken our bones. Fluoride is dangerous. It is even says so on the back of the tooth paste tube— poison --spit do not swallow—Adding fluoride (hydrofluorosilicic acid) to the public water system and claiming it is safe to drink, bathe, cook , and grow your vegetables in is asking our children and our animals to ingest high amounts of this acid. Acidity n high levels in our bodies' causes' cancer. Hello not to mention forcing huge populations of our children and their parent's pocketbooks to a life of cosmetic dentistry servitude or chemo therapy. Of course only if the child is lucky enough to have parents with money/ insurance who will be able to correct the cosmetic negative affects of fluoride. Everyone else will be destined to go through life with a cosmetically damaged smile,lower IQ and bone loss.

Proof? 03.Feb.2013 17:27


I'm against this simply because it was rammed through. But if all this stuff that fluoride leads to is true, shouldn't we see it all over the country as most water supplies add it to their water? Or is it happening and it's just not reported?


I hate to agree with the loons... 04.Feb.2013 12:15


But I'm also not pleased with the fluoride plan. It was not "rammed" thorough, but it does have all the marks of questionable cause/effect(low income kids get cavities from lack of care and no amount of fluoride is going to make up for that). Also, the company contracted seemed to have PORK written all over it. This is the only issue I disagree with Adams on.

So, that said, the loons have some splainin to do:

"High doses of fluoride will cause severe pitting and discoloration of the teeth."

High doses of almost anything are bad for you. High doses of vitamins. High doses of water. Does "high dose" mean something that could happen accidentally in reasonable use? Or is "high dose" what would happen if someone went out of their way to poison themselves?

"Systemic ingestion of fluoride because there is NO way to control the dose once fluoride (hydrofluorosilicic acid) is added into the water system leads to more people suffering from the symptoms of fluorosis. "

Okay, I could see this as possible, but....are these dose cumulative? In other words does the body get rid of it? How long?

Like Garth said, if it's really this dire, you should be able to point to actual medical documented cases of regular folks, in regular use, getting fluoride poisoning from toothpaste/mouthwashes.

I don't know about scientific... 04.Feb.2013 19:18


but if one judges by Vancouver just across the river, where there is a damned dentist on every corner, it seems, and where it seems there's little abject poverty (but that can be hidden, or just shipped across the bridge), and a city that does use fluoride in its water system, the fluoride is a failure. (Said with tongue in cheek, which is why it may not be such a clear joke.)

Personally, I'm of the opinion that in most cases where a little may be all right, and more can be worse than none, it would be much more prudent to veer toward none. The problem being that one is relying upon equipment and people that fail where one might think the process is fool-proof, even if we all know, due to ingenuity of fools, there's no such thing as fool-proof. One thing to keep in mind when calling for any scientific 'evidence' outside of anthropology or geology or some science of that nature is that someone makes money or has some ulterior motive here beyond kid's teeth, their interest likely funds or influences through money elsewhere in the political or university system that research. I think GM and nuclear are prime examples of this. If people want to have fluoride, the effective way to get it is treatments or using just about all the major brands of toothpaste. They can pay for the shit, I certainly don't care to have it due to the first sentence of this paragraph.

I believe, though, that it is a great method for city councils to appear like they're doing something as in managing to govern, or (heaven forbid) actually doing something to help the people lead better lives. And what better way to get the people to argue amongst themelves than some BS like this when the second to the last sentence of the above paragraph is really much more effective than anything the council could do except look at each citizen's face in the mirror each morning and brush that citizen's teeth for them, supplying the toothpaste (while passing a law to mandate its use), or offering to tax the well-off to pay for treatments for each and every citizen.

This is a gross waste of good BS and someone should call them on it.

Topical Fluoride is a Choice 05.Feb.2013 09:32


The links above are provided to encourage further study-- they are not there to try to convince anybody--there is plenty of science to support the systemic use of fluoride shows no benefit of cavity prevention-- hoe can a corrosive chemical prevent tooth decay? Think about no matter what the marketing spin says--the manufacture of the hydrofluorosilicic acid (the chemical proposed for Portland's drinking water) comes with no liability that it will not kill you or make your children sick--they provide no statement of efficacy that it prevents cavities at all--nor do they offer any money back garuntee for our five million dollars.

Topical use of fluoride is a personal choice that people can access today-- but even on the back of the tooth paste tube --IT SAYS DO NOT SWALLOW POISON --
Adding a corrosive chemical to the public water supply takes away my choice and destroys equity--equity to me means options --allowing recycled waste from the phosphate fertilizer industries to be disposed of in our pristine world class water is a crime -- not health care --

Remember the ADA claims mercury amalgams are safe --calling people loonies because they do not believe the association dogma(who stands to benefit financially when our children's pearly whites are scared with fluorosis? ) marketing line does not make us crazy --it is called critical thinking --they once taught that in school--

RePost:As of December 2012, a total of 42 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence. Of these investigations, 36 of the 42 human studies found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ, while 16 animal studies have found that fluoride exposure impairs the learning and memory capacity of animals.

Fluoridegate the film 08.Feb.2013 08:03

video and link

FLUORIDEGATE is a new documentary that reveals the tragedy of how government, industry and trade associations protect and promote a policy known to cause harm to our country and especially to small children who suffer more than any other segment of the population. While their motivation remains uncertain, the outcome is crystal clear: it is destroying our nation!
