The Fluoride Conspiracy


"Tell a lie loud enough and long enough and people will believe it."
- Adolf Hitler

"Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century."
- Robert Carlton, Ph.D, former EPA scientist, 1992

The history of forcing fluoride on humans through the fluoridation of drinking water is wrought with lies, greed and deception. Governments that add fluoride to drinking water supplies insist that it is safe, beneficial and necessary, however, scientific evidence shows that fluoride is not safe to ingest and areas that fluoridate their drinking water supplies have higher rates of cavities, cancer, dental fluorosis, osteoporosis and other health problems. Because of the push from the aluminum industry, pharmaceutical companies and weapons manufacturers, fluoride continues to be added to water supplies all over North America and due to recent legal actions against water companies that fluoridate drinking water supplies, precedent has been set that will make it impossible for suits to be filed against water suppliers that fluoridate. There is a growing resistance against adding toxic fluoride to our water supplies, but unfortunately, because fluoride has become "the lifeblood of the modern industrial economy"(Bryson 2004), there is too much money at stake for those who endorse water fluoridation . The lies of the benefits of water fluoridation will continue to be fed to the public, not to encourage health benefits to a large number of people, but to profit the military-industrial complex.

The story begins in 1924, when Interessen Gemeinschaft Farben (I.G. Farben), a German chemical manufacturing company, began receiving loans from American bankers, gradually leading to the creation of the huge I.G. Farben cartel. In 1928 Henry Ford and American Standard Oil Company (The Rockefellers) merged their assets with I.G. Farben, and by the early thirties, there were more than a hundred American corporations which had subsidiaries and co-operative understandings in Germany. The I.G. Farben assets in America were controlled by a holding Company, American I.G. Farben, which listed on it’s board of directors: Edsel Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company, Chas. E. Mitchell, President of Rockerfeller’s National City Bank of New York, Walter Teagle, President of Standard Oil New York, Paul Warburg, Chairman of the federal reserve and brother of Max Warburg, financier of Germany’s War effort, Herman Metz, a director of the Bank of Manhattan, controlled by the Warburgs, and a number of other members, three of which were tried and convicted as German war criminals for their crimes against humanity. In 1939 under the Alted agreement, the American Aluminum Company (ALCOA), then the worlds largest producer of sodium fluoride, and the Dow Chemical Company transferred its technology to Germany. Colgate, Kellogg, Dupont and many other companies eventually signed cartel agreements with I.G. Farben, creating a powerful lobby group accurately dubbed "the fluoride mafia"(Stephen 1995).

At the end of World War II, the US government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany. The German chemists told Perkins of a scheme which they had devised during the war and had been adapted by the German General Staff. The German chemists explained of their attempt to control the population in any given area through the mass medication of drinking water with sodium fluoride, a tactic used in German and Russian prisoner of war camps to make the prisoners "stupid and docile"(Stephen 1995). Farben had developed plans during the war to fluoridate the occupied countries because it was found that fluoridation caused slight damage to a specific part of the brain, making it more difficult for the person affected to defend his freedom and causing the individual to become more docile towards authority. Fluoride remains one of the strongest anti-psychotic substances known, and is contained in twenty-five percent of the major tranquilizers. It may not seem surprising that Hitler’s regime practiced the concept of mind control through chemical means, but the American military continued Nazi research, exploring techniques to incapacitate an enemy or medicate an entire nation. As stated in the Rockerfeller Report, a Presidential briefing on CIA activities, "the drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means of controlling human behavior"(Stephen 1995).

The ‘dental caries prevention myth’ associated with fluoride, originated in the United States in 1939, when a scientist named Gerald J. Cox, employed by ALCOA, the largest producer of toxic fluoride waste and at the time being threatened by fluoride damage claims, fluoridated some lab rats, concluded that fluoride reduced cavities and claimed that it should be added to the nation’s water supplies. In 1947, Oscar R. Ewing, a long time ALCOA lawyer, was appointed head of the Federal Security Agency , a position that placed him in charge of the Public Health Service(PHS). Over the next three years, eighty-seven new American cities began fluoridating their water, including the control city in a water fluoridation study in Michigan, thus eliminating the most scientifically objective test of safety and benefit before it was ever completed.

American ‘education and research’ was funded by the Aluminum Manufacturing, Fertilizer and Weapons Industry looking for an outlet for the increasingly mounting fluoride industrial waste while attaining positive profit increase. The ‘discovery’ that fluoride benefited teeth, was paid for by industry that needed to be able to defend "lawsuits from workers and communities poisoned by industrial fluoride emissions" (Bryson 1995) and turn a liability into an asset. Fluoride, a waste constituent in the manufacturing processes of explosives, fertilizers and other ‘necessities’, was expensive to dispose of properly and until a ‘use’ was found for it in America’s water supplies, the substance was only considered a toxic, hazardous waste. Through sly public re-education, fluoride, once a waste product, became the active ingredient in fluorinated pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, anesthetics, tranquilizers, fluorinated pharmaceuticals, and a number of industrial and domestic products, fluorinated dental gels, rinses and toothpastes. Fluoride is so much a part of a multibillion-dollar industrial and pharmaceutical income, that any withdrawal of support from pro-fluoridationists is financially impossible, legally unthinkable and potentially devastating for their career and reputation.

Funded by US industrialists, in an attempt to encourage public acceptance of fluoride, Edward Bernays, known also as the father of PR, or the original spin doctor, began a campaign of deception to persuade public opinion. Barnays explained "you can get practically any idea accepted if doctors are in favour. The public is willing to accept it because a doctor is an authority to most people, regardless of how much he knows or doesn’t know"(Bryson 2004). Doctors who endorsed fluoridation didn’t know that research discrediting fluoride’s safety was either suppressed or not conducted in the first place. Fluoride became equated with scientific progress and since it was introduced to the public as a health-enhancing substance, added to the environment for the children’s sake, those opposing fluoride were dismissed as cranks, quacks and lunatics. Fluoride became impervious to criticism because of a relentless PR offensive, but also because of it’s overall toxicity. Unlike chemicals that have a signature effect, fluoride, a systemic poison, produces a range of health problems, so it’s effects are more difficult to diagnose.

Recently declassified US Military documents such as Manhattan Project, shows how Fluoride is the key chemical in atomic bomb production and millions of tonnes of it were needed for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium. Fluoride poisoning, not radiation poisoning, emerged as the leading chemical health hazard for both workers and nearby communities. A-bomb scientists were ordered to provide evidence useful for defense in litigation, so they began secretly testing fluoride on unsuspecting hospital patients and indignant, mentally retarded children.. "The August 1948 Journal of the American Dental Association shows that evidence of adverse effects from fluoride was censored by the US Atomic Energy Commission for reasons of "national security" (Griffiths 1998). The only report released stated that fluoride was safe for humans in small doses.

During the Cold War, Dr. Harold C. Hodge, who had been the toxicologist for the US Army Manhattan Project, was the leading scientific promoter of water fluoridation. While Dr. Hodge was reassuring congress of the safety of water fluoridation, he was covertly conducting one of the nation’s first public water fluoridation experiments in Newburgh, New York, secretly studying biological samples from Newburgh citizens at his US laboratory at the University of Rochester. Since there are no legal constraints against the suppression of scientific data, the only published conclusion resulting from these experiments was that fluoride was safe in low doses, a profoundly helpful verdict for the US Military who feared lawsuits for fluoride injury from workers in nuclear power plants and munitions factories. Fluoride pollution was one of the biggest legal worries facing key US industrial sectors during the cold war. A secret group of corporate attorneys, known as the Fluorine Lawyers Committee, whose members included US Steel, ALCOA, Kaiser Aluminum, and Reynolds Metals, commissioned research at the Kettering Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati to "provide ammunition"(Bryson 2004) for those corporations who were fighting a wave of citizen claims for fluoride injury. The Fluorine Lawyers Committee and their medical ambassadors were in personal and frequent contact with the senior officials of the federal National Institute for Dental Research, and have been implied in the ‘burying’ of the forty year old Kettering study, which showed that fluoride poisoned the lungs and lymph nodes in laboratory animals. Private interests, sought to destroy careers and censor information by ensuring that scientific studies raising doubts about the safety of fluoride never got funded, and if they did, never got published.

During the 1990’s, research conducted by Harvard toxicologist Phillis Mullenix showed that fluoride in water may lead to lower IQ’s, and produced symptoms in rats strongly resembling attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Just days before her research was accepted for publication, Mullenix was fired as the head of toxicology at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston. Then her application for a grant to continue her fluoride and central nervous system research was turned down by the US National Institute of Health (NIH), when an NIH panel told her that "fluoride does not have central nervous system effects"(Griffiths 1998).

Despite growing evidence that it is harmful to public health, US federal and state pubic health agencies and large dental and medical organizations such as the American Dental Association (ADA), continue to promote fluoride. Water fluoridation continues, despite the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s own scientists, whose union, Chapter 280 of the National Treasury Employees Union, has taken a strong stand against it. Dr. William Hirzy, vice president of Chapter 280, stated that "fluoride (that is added to municipal water) is a hazardous waste product for which there is substantial evidence of adverse health effects and, contrary to public perception, virtually no evidence of significant benefits"( Mullenix 1998). Although fluoride is up to fifty times more toxic than sulfur dioxide, it is still not regulated as an air pollutant by the American Clean Air Act. Since thousands of tonnes of industrial fluoride waste is poured into drinking water supplies all over North America, supposedly to encourage gleaming smiles in our children, big industry in the US has the benefit of emitting as much fluoride waste into the environment as they like with absolutely no requirement to measure emissions and no way of being held accountable for poisoning people, animals and vegetation.

In August 2003, the EPA requested that the National Research Council, the research arm of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), re-evaluate water fluoride safety standards by reviewing recent scientific literature, because the last review in 1993 had major gaps in research. "Neither the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), nor the National Institute for Dental Research (NIDR), nor the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has any proof on fluoride’s safety or effectiveness"(Sterling 1993). The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has classified fluoride as an unapproved dental medicament due to it’s high toxicity and the US National Cancer Institute Toxicological Program has found fluoride to be an "equivocal carcinogen" (Maurer 1990).

Currently the US government is continuing to introduce further fluoridation schemes throughout the country, including the Water Act passed in November 2003, which has made it impossible for water companies to undergo civil or criminal hearings as a result of adding fluoride to public water supplies.

In a society where products containing asbestos, lead, beryllium and many other carcinogens have been recalled from the marketplace, it is surprising that fluoride is embraced so thoroughly and blindly. It seems absurd that we would consider paying the chemical industry to dispose of their toxic waste by adding it to our water supply. Hiding the hazards of fluoride pollution from the public is a capitalist-style con job of epic proportions that has occurred because a powerful lobby wishes to manipulate public opinion in order to protect it’s own financial interests. "Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country... our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of" (Bernays 1991).

80195 In 1990 the residents of Cumberland, Maryland voted to ban fluoride from their drinking water, not long after the community's 26-year ban on the chemical was lifted because of the urging of dentists and other special-interest officials. The fluoride issue divided the city such that it was reportedly responsible for the defeat of Cumberland's incumbent pro-fluoride mayor George Wycoff, who lost to Harry Stern, a strong opponent of fluoridation.

Note this 1992 statement by Pennsylvania Justice John Flaherty, after 40 days of court hearings on fluoride: "... I entered an injunction against the fluoridation of the public water supply for a large portion of Allegheny County. ... 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 a review of the evidence will disclose that there was no convincing evidence to the contrary."

85214 May 23, 1992: 290 residents of Hooper Bay, Alaska were severely poisoned by sodium fluoride when the city's fluoride dispenser malfunctioned, injecting 150 PPM of fluoride into the drinking water for over a week.

It's common for a private vested interest to put up a "smokescreen" by redefining terminology to fit their private needs. In this case a Public Health Service report stated that the Hooper Bay incident was an "outbreak", as if it were a live disease organism out of control, instead of the mass poisoning that it actually was.

Dominic Smith, previously healthy 41 year-old leader of the local National Guard, died of fluoride poisoning after swallowing an estimated total of 1200-2400 mg of sodium fluoride from the local drinking water supply. One symptom of fluoride overdose is thirst, so Dominic just kept drinking more water until he overdosed and died.

Fluoride is cumulative in the body--somewhat like radiation--so in 1992 it was predicted that those poisoned residents who didn't die, will have worsened health for the rest of their life. (It should be easy to follow up -- half of the town drank from a different well, and they didn't get sick.)

As of 2007, Hooper Bay teenagers have the highest suicide rate of any village in Alaska, and researchers are mystified as to why these kids have such a dismal attitude and are so death-oriented, for no apparent or visible reason.

85214 Human overdoses of fluoride can be found in such places as Annapolis, Maryland in 1979, when their water treatment plant dumped up to 50 PPM fluoride into their water supply, giving approximately 50,000 people toxic reactions. Officials kept it quiet for 2 weeks afterwards saying, "We didn't want to jeopardize the fluoridation program."

However, Dr. John Yiamouyiannis studied the Annapolis situation after the spill, and reported his findings in a book, "Fluoride the Aging Factor". On page 63 of his book, he stated that more than 5 times the normal number of people died of heart failure in Annapolis during the week following the fluoride spill.

During a conversation in 1992, Dr. Yiamouyiannis stated that the actual cause of the Annapolis spill was a human error, done to cover up a mechanical malfunction that had occurred.

Evidently Annapolis had a small fluoride day-tank which was supposed to fill up with fluoride and then the pump would stop. However, the pump malfunctioned and kept running after filling up the tank, and the excess fluoride spilled over into a large waste-sump before it was finally discovered. To cover up the error, the operator who discovered it deliberately pumped the entire overspill (1,000 gallons) directly back into the fresh-water supply.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA 1980:244; 7) had this short PR article on the above fluoride spill, meanwhile carefully avoiding using Annapolis' name:

FLUORIDE. In what the PHS [Public Health Service] calls "the first instance of fluoride overexposure known to have caused serious illness in the 35 years since fluoridation of community water supplies was begun," eight patients undergoing renal dialysis (kidney bypass) in a Maryland community became ill and one died.

Charles M. Wax, MD, assigned by the CDC to the Maryland State Department of Health, said investigation revealed that failure to close a valve in the community's treatment plant led to the spilling of 3,800 Liters (1,000 gallons) of 22% hydrofluosilicic acid into the water supply. Further investigation, he said, "raised the possibility of widespread mild fluoride intoxication within the community as the result of drinking overfluoridated water."

Dr. Yiamouyiannis said that many fish in Annapolis pet shops died shortly after the Annapolis fluoride spill.

62141 80% OF ILLINOIS FLUORIDE TREATMENT PLANTS MALFUNCTIONED IN 1989:

In 1989 the State of Illinois had 1,931 public water facilities, 1,000 of which were fluoridated. The State Health Department gave awards out to each state water treatment facility that was able to maintain the recommended dosage of fluoride in their water for the entire year, but they only gave 115 awards out to the 1,000 fluoridation facilities that year, meaning that 885 treatment plants did NOT keep the fluoride dosages within required limits. (Crete Record, Crete, IL 9/21/89)

The Illinois Health Department did not release the actual data on just how much of a variance there was, for each faulty location.

62141 From an article in the Journal of Applied Psychology, Vol. 67, No. 2, Pp. 230-238:

"Researchers in the Dept. of Psychology at Florida International University, North Miami, found a statistically significant delay (almost 1/2 second longer to respond) in visual response to a peripheral light stimulus in subjects given just 1/2 milligram of sodium fluoride."

That dose is less fluoride than the amount you get from drinking one cup of coffee or tea made from fluoridated tap water.

81169 "Fluorine was substituted for chlorine in Lindane, to make it a far more toxic substance." (Plummer, W.J. and Wall, L.H. Science, Vol. 127, 1958)

"Fluorine is substituted for chlorine in DDT to produce more effective and more toxic insecticides." (Reimschneider, R. Suddent. Apoth. Ztg. 1947)

"Fluorine in the atmosphere increases the sensitivity of the thyroid gland to damaging effects of atmospheric sulfur dioxide." (Gabovich, R.D. et. al., Chemical Abstracts, p. 9051) In other words, fluoride combined with sulfur dioxide (a component of smog) attacks the thyroid gland.

"Sodium silicofluoride spray on oranges remains in the peel, and so can cause severe toxicity..." (Union of So. Africa, Dept Agr. Forestry Scientific Bulletin No. 236, 1943) Note: Marmalade is made from citrus peel.

"1080, or Sodium Fluoroacetate, is described in a federal training manual as a 'biological high-explosive.' " (Los Angeles Times, December 6, 1970)

Sodium fluoroacetate (also known as FAC, RATBANE 1080, COMPOUND 1080, FRATOL, FURATOL, YASOKNOCK, SODIUM MONOFLUOROACETATE, and SODIUM FLUOACETIC ACID) is listed in a hazardous waste book as being 500 times more toxic to rats than was regular sodium fluoride. This is because it's an "organic metabolite."

1080 was used to kill rodents as early as 1944, but was eventually banned for use in buildings due to dogs dying from eating poisoned rats. In 1952, according to Circular No. 140 of the UCLA College of Agriculture, it was reported that 1080 worked so rapidly that it was impossible to save experimentally poisoned animals, even with first aid and under the best of laboratory conditions. Scientists had yet to find an antidote for 1080 at that time.

Only our nerve warfare laboratories have the full story, and they aren't talking.

81169 fluoride reactions resemble Attention Deficit Disorder in a certain percentage of the population, and especially in hyperactive children. The simple test of this is to get the person under question off of ALL sources of fluoride (fluoridated water, toothpaste, soda pop bottled with fluoridated water, canned soup, etc.) and see if their condition improves over a period of 3-4 weeks. Use distilled water, because most simple charcoal water filters will not remove fluorides. To remove possible variables, also test the child for negative reactions to sugar and sugar-substitutes.

It's a tragedy that children are given the habit-forming drug Ritalin to counter the effects of a "disease" that might only be due to their adverse reactions to the drug fluoride and/or sugar.

Following the money, this tragedy is good, profitable business for the pharmaceutical industry. Hence the "sickness industry" has become a multi-billion-dollar self-sustaining ogre that feeds on the partially dead, after creating the condition in the first place.

66238 The following fluoride symptoms are referenced in "Encyclopedia of Pure Materia Medica," Vol IX, p.333. These symptoms--feedback from ignorant volunteers who took varying quantities of fluorides--were listed over 100 years ago, in 1887:

FLUORIDE SYMPTOMS:

--Great loss of memory, forgets almost everything.
--Good memory in morning, forgetfulness every evening.
--Forgetfulness in his daily employment of dates.
--On making notes, mistakes right for left.
--Mental weakness.
--Mental excitability.
--Feels indifference towards those he loves best.
--Aversion (intense dislike) to his own family, bordering on insanity.
--Gay disposition, everything is satisfactory.
--Excessive hilarity; great buoyancy of mind.
--Greatly depressed in mind.
--Exceedingly anxious, causing sweat; greater in morning than evening.
--Sensation as if danger menaced him, but without fear.
--Felt certain that something dreadful would happen, with dullness in head.
--Fear of apoplexy (stroke).
--Anxiety.
--Irritable, disagreeing mood.
--Moodiness in evening, greater than morning.
--Very ill humored.
--Discontent and excessive ill humor followed by indifference and forgetfulness, and finally by perfect contentment and uncommonly gay disposition of mind.
--Congestion of blood mostly to forehead.
--Feeling in brain as if on the verge of being struck with apoplexy. (A stroke)
--Vertigo with sickness of stomach.
--A kind of sinking weakness, has to sit down.
--Feeling as if in an earthquake.
--Sensation of weakness, like numbness in head, same in hands.
--Sensation of numbness in forehead.
--Congestion of blood in forehead.
--Heaviness above eyes, with nausea.
--Severe pressing of both temples.
--Compressing pain in temples.
--Slight pain in right temple, followed by left.
--Headache in skull, behind ears.
--Headache accompanied by congestion of blood to head, sensation of numbness.
--Headache every morning.
--Sensation of weakness, like numbness in head.
--Numbness in head and hands.
--Dull, heavy headache.
--Congestive headache.
--Dullness & pressure in back of head.
--Dullness in back of head.
--Pressure on both sides, back of head.
--Headache in back of head, with fullness in head.
--Headache from neck to forehead; dull feeling in head.
--Atrophy of brain.

If I was a Merck or Eli Lily executive who was concerned about company profits, the above list would be very interesting for the following reason:

These symptoms sound almost exactly like the TYPICAL EVERYDAY ANECDOTAL PATIENT ILLNESS COMPLAINTS, which today's expensive TV commercials, pharmacies, physicians and psychiatrists are so eager to "cure" with their endless supply of profitable new drugs, many of which contain fluoride.

The bottom line is to follow the money. Look at the comfortable standard of living -- and super-arrogant know-it-all attitude -- of those who are promoting and distributing the current crop of pharmaceuticals, versus the lower living standards and lower drug-education level of the ignorant general public who are daily being hammered with the lie that pharmaceuticals in general are a NUTRIENT. Public sickness and ignorance is good, profitable business.

7456 ENVIRONMENTALLY-CAUSED MENTAL RETARDATION

Mental Fluorosis: Brain Damage from Exposure to Fluorides
By George Glasser

(Courtesy of Sarasota ECO Report, Guy Alland, Publisher. P.O. Box 35500 Sarasota, FL 34242)

"Those who are for and against fluoridation have little common ground other than issues they disagree on. They cannot dialogue objectively because they have different realities. They see things differently, and have different criteria in determining validity. Our lives are enriched by artists for whom "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." But our lives are often endangered when scientific truth is in the eye of the beholder." (Dr. Schatz, discoverer of streptomycin)

Only now are the insidious facts about SARIN (nerve gas) surfacing as more comes out about the "Gulf War Syndrome" and the Tokyo subway incident. It appears that with both incidents, the people exposed to SARIN are suffering from a variety of lingering adverse health and chronic neurotoxic effects, such as memory loss.

SARIN is one of the most potent neurotoxic substances known. SARIN is also a fluorinated organophosphate similar to, but more toxic to humans than, the insecticide Parathion. SARIN is the prime example of toxicokinetics of the fluorine ion. When the fluorine ion is combined with relatively benign substances it often creates a powerful toxicant (toxic synergism). With SARIN, the fluorine ion is like an arming mechanism for the relatively benign organophosphate, which transforms it into a compound with one hell-of-a-wallop.

Acute exposure to SARIN, a drop about the size of a grain of sand, causes spasms (tetany), heart palpitations (cardiac arrhythmia), many other neurological disorders, and possibly collapse of the nervous system and death. Production of acetylcholine, the most important chemical for nervous system function is disrupted. Acetylcholine is responsible for carrying all neuro-transmissions in the brain and throughout the nervous system of the body.

Many animal studies of fluorinated organophosphates also suggest a delayed neurotoxic reaction similar to those experiences by those people exposed to SARIN.

With water fluoridation, the public is exposed to a variety of fluorides, and aside from the fluorine ion, some of those fluorides are neurotoxic. Many scientists discount the fluorine ion as being neurotoxic; however, the weight of scientific evidence strongly indicates that the fluorine ion is, if nothing else, the perpetrator. This is evidenced by the variety of fluorinated drugs that are used to treat mental disorders and the fluorine ion's role in the devastating effectiveness of SARIN as a chemical nerve agent.

Many psychoactive drugs are fluorinated. Two of the most noted are Prozac and Rohypnol (better known as the infamous date-rape drug, "Roofs."). Rohypnol is fluorinated Valium, which is about 20-30 times more potent than Valium alone.

Essentially, these drugs effect enzyme functions in certain areas of the brain to achieve the desired effect. The primary ingredients of most psychoactive drugs suppress enzyme production, and the fluorine ion is also an enzyme inhibitor.

The one particular side effect common to almost all fluorinated drugs which is mentioned in the Physician's Desk Reference is memory loss. These drugs include Fenfluramine (a fluorinated weight loss drug), fluorinated corticosteroids, and fluorinated psychoactive drugs such as Prozac. Memory loss and learning disorders are associated with the hippocampal area of the brain.

On page 125 of the Toxicological Profile for Fluorides it is stated: "Neurotoxicity: Because fluoride interacts with calcium ions needed for effective neurotransmission, fluoride can affect the nervous system." This statement is reinforced by recent studies performed by Dr. Robert Isaacson and Dr. Phyllis Mullenix which were concluded shortly after the publication of the profile.

Since 1992 there have been three studies confirming that fluorides affect brain functions. Dr. Robert Isaacson, Binghamton University, New York conducted two studies using low levels of aluminum fluoride and sodium fluoride. The levels were similar to the amounts people are exposed to on a daily basis from fluoridated toothpastes and drinking water.

Results showed that both types of fluorides were neurotoxic. The most recent study, "Neurotoxicity of Sodium Fluoride in Rats", Mullenix, et al, published in Neurotoxicology and Teratology 1995, was done using larger doses of sodium fluoride and corroborated the results of both Isaacson studies (1992 &.1994).

All the studies demonstrated that the hippocampal region (learning center) of the brain was the most susceptible to the effects of fluorides.

It was also stated in the study published in Neurotoxicology and Teratology, 1995, Mullenix, et al, that:

"Hyperactivity and cognitive deficits are generally linked with hippocampal damage, and in fact, the hippocampus is considered to be the central processor which integrates inputs from the environment, memory, and motivational stimuli to produce behavioral decisions and modify memory."

However, the researchers said that although the behavior of rats does not extrapolate to humans, the generic behavioral patterns created in rats from fluoride exposure can and probably do occur in humans. They also said the problems that might occur in humans from typical chronic fluoride exposure during pregnancy and early childhood are: "motor-sensory dysfunction, IQ deficits' and/or learning disabilities" (environmentally induced retardation of brain development).

While Dr. Mullenix's study dealt only with sodium fluoride, Dr. Isaacson's studies focused on aluminum fluoride compared to sodium fluoride and were performed to determine if fluoridated water's effect on leaching aluminum or combining with the aluminum sulphate which is added to some water as a clarifier [by water treatment facilities] had an impact on the development of Alzheimer's Disease.

Alzheimer's studies had determined that there was a significant build-up of aluminum in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. Population studies also suggested that there appeared to be a higher incidence of Alzheimer's disease among people who lived in fluoridated areas, which was the impetus for Dr. Isaacson's study.

Isaacson's study indicated that the aluminum fluoride was more neurotoxic than the sodium fluoride.

82103 (continued)

Recent studies in China, where coal containing fluorides is used for cooking and heating, determined that fluorides released during burning and inhaled by young children were responsible for lowered IQ's.

Documents with regards to the neurotoxic effects of fluoride exposure among the workers who processed uranium for the first nuclear bombs in 1944 were recently declassified by the government. These documents indicate that the US Government has known for more than fifty years that fluorides are neurotoxic. Other studies dating back to 1949 indicate that exposure to fluorides can have neurotoxic effects on animals.

The first form of nerve gas, Soman (a fluorine compound) was developed by the Germans during World War II which indicates that scientists were well aware of neurotoxicity of fluoride compounds almost sixty years ago.

Through water fluoridation, the general population, especially children who are most susceptible to developmental changes, are exposed to fluorides.

In the "Toxicological Profile for Fluorides", 1993, page 90, it states,

"The fluorine ion carried in human blood serum exists in two forms, namely as an inorganic ion (F-) and in combination with an organic molecule. The toxicological significance of the latter form is unknown. A portion of circulating fluoride acts as an enzyme inhibitor because it forms metal-fluoride-phosphate complexes that interfere with the activity of those enzymes requiring a metal ion cofactor. In addition, fluoride may interact directly with the enzyme or the substrate. It is a general inhibitor of the energy production system of the cell...."

The fluorine ion has a negative electrical charge while metal ions have a positive electrical charge, and they readily combine to form metal-fluoride-complexes. Both metal ions and fluorine ions are very small. Consequently, they can easily pass through cell membranes. Once in the cell, a natural chemical reaction occurs where the fluorine ion is released from the metal ion. The fluorine ion interferes with the enzyme function and continues on, while the metal ion is left behind. It is also possible for the fluorine ion to attach to a trace mineral such as zinc which is essential to enzyme function and remove it from the cell. This same scenario is how fluoride acts as a delivery mechanism for psychoactive drugs, but with water fluoridation, the passenger is a neurotoxic substance such as lead, mercury or aluminum for which the brain is the target organ.

Because the poisoning of the brain is accomplished from chronic, low-level doses of highly potent (synergized) metal-fluoride-complexes, conventional standards used to determine intoxication would be inadequate (a linear dose-response to a particular neurotoxic substance). Like Rohypnol or SARIN, the neurotoxic substances may well be synergized with the addition of the fluorine ion. Consequently, lead or mercury fluoride combinations could be much more neurotoxic than the independent metal ion.

While symptoms may indicate that a person is suffering from neurotoxicity, the method and standards used to measure toxicity and/or serum levels of substances would not indicate toxic levels in the body. The present accepted method used by researchers to determine adverse effects is to attempt to target a single substance as the causative rather than address chemical interactions that can and do occur when chemicals are metabolized in the human body or through environmental reactions.

The consequences of not considering synergized chemical interactions would be misdiagnoses and possibly the prescribing of a medication that may exacerbate the condition. To further confound the problem, there are only several animal studies available on the neurotoxic effects of metal-fluoride-complexes on which to base any diagnosis.

The present thought among most pro and anti-fluoridation scientists and researchers is that since the neurotoxic metal-fluoride-complexes are only found at trace levels in fluoridated water, they are of little significance. Most scientists are only concerned with how much of a specific toxicant will cause an adverse immediate health effect, not how little of a synergized toxicant will cause an adverse health effect later on, in conjunction with prolonged chronic, low-level exposure.

The problem with fluorides is that it is difficult to prove that the fluorine ion had anything to do with a metabolic crime involving neurotoxic damage related to metal-fluoride-complexes. This is because the fluorine ion is the vehicle that carries the neurotoxic substance, effectively delivers it to the target area of the brain where it will do the most damage, leaves it, and then continues on its metabolic journey.

With lethal doses of poisons such as SARIN or sodium fluoroacetate, it would be almost impossible to determine that a person had been poisoned from the fluorinated toxicants. This is because of the bioactivity of the fluorine ion which is in a constant state of transition as it travels through the body.

With these fluoride compounds, the examining physician would have to know that a person was exposed to these substances to determine the cause of death, otherwise, it would be written off as heart failure. Diagnosing the effects of chronic, low-level exposure to fluoride compounds would be almost impossible unless appropriate research was done to determine what those adverse affects were and that the physicians were aware of the research.

In essence, it can be said that the ubiquitous fluorine ion when combined with another substance could be the perpetrator of almost perfect neurological or biological crimes. This is because:

1. Neither toxic levels of the fluorine ion nor the accomplice substance can be placed at the scene of the crime in significant amounts to indicate intoxication;

2. Scientists generally discount toxic synergism as a factor with chronic fluoride toxicity; and

3. there is no research data on which to base a diagnosis.

The weight of scientific evidence suggests that the fluorine ion is the most logical perpetrator of neurotoxic damage. It is also a scientific fact that the fluorine ion has a particular affinity for metal ions of which some, such as lead, aluminum and mercury are neurotoxic and accumulate in brain tissues. And it is a well known scientific fact among toxicologists that the fluorine ion acts as a synergizing agent for many toxicants.

Consequently, it is only logical to assume that the neurotoxic metal-fluoride-phosphate complexes act as potentiated neurotoxicants. [Note: Only several hundred registered professional toxicologists exist in the entire U.S., and these individuals are uniformly against fluoridation of the water supplies.]

The only adverse effects most scientists are interested in with regards to water fluoridation are the effects of the fluorine ion, which is an intangible, and which accumulates in endpoint tissues after the fact (meaning, after the metabolic damage has been done). The fluorine ion, alone, only exists instantaneously in a transitional phase during such a chemical reaction.

Long term effects of low-level chronic exposure to synergized fluoride compounds/complexes are possibly considered inconsequential, although the population is exposed to low-levels of these cumulative chemicals on a daily basis via fluoridated water, toothpaste, mouthwash, residual fluorinated insecticides, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides on fruits and vegetables along with environmental fluoride pollution.

In the Journal of Dental Research, Vol. 69, Feb. 1990, pg. 584, there is a mention of toxic synergism and concern over metal-fluoride complexes in Recommendations from Session IV, Needed Research, #7,

"Consider variations in physiological, nonphysiological, and pathological changes -- for example, diet, ambient temperature, altitude, environmental pollution and disease states. Environmental pollutants -- heavy metals, for example -- should be monitored not just for their effects on Fluorine but for their other effects per se".

The effects of long-term, low-level exposure to these cumulative metal-fluoride complexed neurotoxicants and organophosphates are contingent on several factors: The age of the person, diet, health, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, genetic disposition, ethnicity, length of exposure, previous exposure to neurotoxicants, medications, and environmental factors. Not all people react the same.

There is much research data on the neurotoxic effects of lead, mercury and aluminum:

Lead is associated with environmental retardation (learning disorders); mercury is associated with various nervous and mental disorders (the "mad hatter" syndrome, where hatters once used mercury to make felt hats); and aluminum has been associated with memory loss (Presenile dementia, or Alzheimer's disease).

However, since there are only several studies about neurotoxic metal-fluoride-complexes, one can only speculate as to what the effects of chronic, long-term, low-level exposure to synergistic combinations of these complexes could be.

In reviewing pharmaceutical, agricultural and chemical warfare research data, it appears safe to assume that the neurotoxic effects of metal-fluoride-complexes would be magnified, as with the case of Rohypnol and other psychoactive drugs.

It is also logical to believe, that like soldiers suffering from SARIN exposure ("Gulf War Syndrome"), there might not be an antidote for the adverse metabolic reaction caused by organophosphates that are also used in agricultural products or metal-fluoride-complexes. Possibly, continued chronic exposure to low-levels of fluorides (even fluoride toothpaste) thereafter, might well exacerbate the initial effects.

This ?debate? just blows me away. As usual the American Public has been "hood-winked". I have been seriously avoiding any fluoride/poison intake for at least 25 to 30 years, and I grew up where I was fortunate to NOT have fluoride/poison in my public drinking water. I am so grateful for that.

Below is a link for a very well documented article concerning this topic, for those who want footnotes.

683 I always wondered why americans are so retarded and Russians are geniuses in comparison. The lie box called TV that keeps americans stupid and brainwashed, has carefully planted propaganda. One CSI Miami episode : "His teeth are rotten, must be from eastern Europe where there is no fluoride in the water." Somehow I have no sympathy for americans-they get what they deserve. A giant false sense of pride, that they are the best-that they are free?have adequate healthcare?have a high standard of living? That they are (blood thirsty-vengence-punishing -sadistic) Christains???They have no idea that pride-especially false pride is one of the seven deadly sins.

150124 Ever since I found out how dangerous Fluoride is to human health, I feel as if I'm drinking poisen when I'm drinking water.

Is there any way of getting rid of it at home?

807 So Alan Johnson,the secretary of state for health,in Great Britain is going to force everyone to take a large daily dose of fluoride.I hope he is prepared to answer for his actions when he is hauled in front of the European Court on Human Rights.

68198 For those who might not know, there are intelligent dentists out there who use fluoride and mercury alternatives. You just have to find them. Most of us know fluoride is toxic but in most toothpaste thats only the active ingredient. Some of the inactive ingredients you should be just as affraid of like saccharin or sodium lauryl sulfate (which is a cheap harsh detergent (often derived from petroleum) also used in shampoos for its cleansing and foam building properties). Find a good Natural toothpast there are many of them out there. FYI: If you or your child have any skin rashes get a natural soap, shampoo and laundry detergent and you will see the difference. Go Organic and live longer and healthier. Don't trust or believe everything the FDA, CDC or WHO has to say. GOOD LUCK!
