    Fluoride Is A Carcinogen

    Fluoride was found to be an equivocal carcinogen by
    the National Cancer Institute Toxicological Program.1

    Further studies by the New Jersey Department of
    Health have now confirmed a 6.9 fold increase in
    bone cancer in young males.2

    Earlier studies had found a 5% increase in all types of
    cancers in fluoridated communities.3

    FACT. . .

    Fluoride Increases Hip Fractures

    Drinking fluoridated water will double the number of
    hip fractures for both older men and women.4 5

    Extremely low levels of water fluoridation 0.1 ppm
    still produced statistically significant increased hip
    fractures. (Bordeaux Study JAMA 1994)

    FACT. . .

    Fluoride Increases Infertility

    Infertility in women was found to increase with water

    Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists
    reported a close correlation between decreasing total
    fertility rates in women between ages of 10 and 49,
    and increasing fluoride levels.

    They also reported that a review of all of the animal
    studies done to date shows that fluoride adversely
    affects fertility in most animal species.6

    FACT. . .

    Fluoride Increases Fluorosis - Opaque white spots and brown ugly teeth caused by fluoride is called Fluorosis. Fluorosis currently affects one out of five or more children in this nation although it is rarely seen in California.

    California is the least fluoridated state with less
    than 16% of the population drinking artificially
    fluoridated water.

    FACT. . .

    Fluoride Does NOT Reduce Tooth Decay

    Fluoride is not effective in reducing tooth decay.

    No correlation was found between the level of fluoride in water and dental caries. There appears to be a genetically related increase in tooth decay for Hispanics, Indians, Native Americans and Asians. Decay is related to the educational and economic level of the parents.12 13 14

    FACT. . .

    Fluoride Is Unapproved By FDA

    The FDA considers fluoride an unapproved new drug for which there is no proof of safety or effectiveness. The FDA does not consider fluoride an essential nutrient.

    FACT. . .

    Fluoride Is Highly Toxic. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has classified Fluoride as an unapproved dental medicament due to its high toxicity.

    Immune deficiency : Dr. Sheila Gibson
    from the University of Glasgow, showed that
    fluoride, at levels comparable to those found
    in the blood of people living in fluoridated
    areas, decreased the migration rate of human
    white blood cells (leukotaxis). [Also inhibits
    phagocytosis - another defence mechanism ]
    This adversely affects the immune system.
    Dr. Gibson found that only a six-hour
    exposure of white blood cells to as little as
    0.1 parts per million fluoride inhibits the white
    blood cell migration rate by 21 percent. One
    part per million inhibits the white blood cell
    migration rate by 85 per cent and 2 ppm has
    a conclusive 0 percent relative migration rate.
    This indicates that a continued use of fluoride
    in the drinking water could result in the total
    destruction of the immune response.10

    Cancer : Cancer researchers have found a
    17% rise in 16 yrs of cancers in towns in the
    USA which are fluoridated in comparison with
    those which are not. A rise in a rare bone
    cancer, osteosarcoma, was recorded in men
    under 20 in fluoridated areas. This was
    confirmed in studies on rats in 1989 by the
    US National Toxicology Program.11

    General side effects : George L. Waldbott,
    founder and chief of allergy clinics in four
    Detroit hospitals, reported treating at least
    500 patients who he concluded reacted
    negatively to fluoridated water. The
    symptoms included muscular weakness,
    chronic fatigue, excessive thirst, headaches,
    skin rashes, joint pains, digestive upsets,
    tingling in the extremities, and loss of mental
    acuity. Waldbott used double-blind tests to
    determine whether fluoride was the cause of
    symptoms in many of his cases. In each of
    these patients, the symptoms disappeared
    when the fluoride was taken away without the
    patient's knowledge and reappeared when it
    was given again.12

    Other ailments include :13

    Destruction of about 60 enzymes
    including cytochrome C and
    cholinesterase which handle oxygen.
    Genetic change in sperm and other
    Downs Syndrome increase of 250%
    with 70% developing cataracts
    Infant mortality, spontaneous
    abortions and miscarriages increase
    Infant birth defects increase

    that fluroide was that damaging. I didn't grow up on flurioded water and I have a mouth full of silver fillings. My boys took fluroide supplements and at 17 and 19 - NO cavities yet! We have well water.

    My endo from years back prescribed fluroide pills (13 at a time)as a treatment for osteoporosis, which was diagnosed at age 19. I didn't take them for long because I had to crush them and put it in capsules...the smell made me sick. For the longest time - when I thought about taking the fluroide and its odor, I would feel sick.

    Anyway, thanks for the information on dangers w/ fluroide.
