"Fluorides are general protoplasma poisons, with the capacity to modify the metabolism of cells by inhibting[sic] certain enzymes. Sources of fluoride intoxication include drinking water containing 1ppm or more of fluorine."
Journal of the American Medical Association, September 18, 1943.
Also see AMA letter scan, May 13, 1965.
"Drinking water containing as little as 1.2 ppm fluoride will cause developmental disturbances. We cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances. The potentialities for harm outweigh those for good."
Journal of the American Dental Association, Editorial, October 1, 1944.
"We do know that the use of drinking water containing as little as 1.2 - 3.0 parts per million of fluorine will cause such developmental disturbances in bones as osteosclerosis, spondylosis and osteopetrosis, as well as goiter, and we cannot afford to run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances in applying what is at present a doubtful procedure intended to prevent development of dental disfigurements."
IN OTHER WORDS
Here is a simpler clarification to the correct terms when referring to the TOXIC POISON now in ALL Australian drinking water. Fluoride proponents like mentioning "natural" fluoride when 'massaging' the public into acquiescence. What they usually mean is Calcium fluoride, "the inorganic compound with the formula CaF2. This ionic compound of calcium and fluorine occurs naturally as the mineral fluorite (also called fluorspar). It is the source of most of the world's fluorine." They even go so far as to push any type of fluoride as a "essential nutrient," which of course it is NOT.
HOWEVER! We are NOT drinking Calcium Fluoride (not that you'd want to anyway; see below), BUT stuff like Hexafluorosilicic acid -- the chemical compound with the formula H2SiF6. The FACT is, the community is really drinking toxic by-products from the aluminium smelters and fertilizer industry!
By the way, let us NEVER FORGET, that even Calcium Fluoride is toxic and causes many problems around the world. For evidence of this, one needs only to read the information contained in the following links, which relate to Calcium Fluoride exposure in countries such as India and China: Link 1 ; Link 2 ; Link 3 ; Link 4.
A bit MORE about this 'Hexa--whatever--stuff'
In 1983, Rebecca Hanmer, the Deputy Assistant Administrator for Water at the US Environmental Protection Agency, described, in a letter, the policy of using the phosphate industry's silicofluorides for water fluoridation:
"In regard to the use of flurosilicic acid as the source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency regards such use as an ideal solution to a long standing problem. By recovering by-product flurosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized, and water authorities have a low-cost source of fluoride available to them."
"If this stuff gets out into the air, it's a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it's a pollutant; if it gets into the lake it's a pollutant; but if it goes right into your drinking water system, it's not a pollutant. That's amazing... There's got to be a better way to manage this stuff."
As supplementary reading, Dr. Hirzy discusses the downgrading of certain cancer bioassays, a move believed to have been "politically motivated and not scientifically defensible."
Sodium Fluoride, for example, was registered in Canada as an INSECTICIDE as recently as December 2000 (as page 4 of this PDF reveals). Sodium Fluoride, of course, is one of the three fluoride compounds recommended by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council for fluoridating public drinking water supplies. As absurd as this may seem, you can read the NHMRC recommendation from the Department of Health's own official public documents (see page 9 of this PDF).
If you still don't believe it, just ask Incitec Pivot Industrial. They state on their company website – regarding Sodium Fluoride's 'highly corrosive' and far more dangerous cousin, Fluorosilicic Acid (also recommended by the NHMRC) – that "Fluorosilicic Acid is the most widely used fluoridation agent in Australia." According to their own MSDS, this product is "highly corrosive" (p. 3, sect. 11) and is "Classified as a Schedule 7 (S7) Poison using the criteria in the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Drugs and Poisons (SUSDP)" (p. 6, sect. 15).
Understandably, some citizens are... 'confused' on how this acid will be 'contained'.
What about Fluorosilic Acid's other uses? Well, it is little wonder that it is used for glass etching (and numerous other things) – being so "highly corrosive" – this was according to hazardous waste experts in 1994, after 4,500 gallons of the substance spilled onto a Florida Highway.
A load of 'Bull'
In the early days of water fluoridation, promoters hired 'professionals' such as the 'aptly-named' Dr. Frank Bull, to "sell" the practice to the public. One of Dr. Bull's most famous contributions to the murky world of fluoridation history was the following comments during the Fourth Annual Conference of State Dental Directors:
"Dr. Bain used the term `adding sodium fluoride'. We never do that. That is rat poison. You add fluorides [...] But this toxicity question is a difficult one [...] The question of toxicity is on the same order. Lay off it altogether." TRANSCRIPT.
"Now, why should we do a pre-fluoridation survey? Is it to find out if fluoridation works? No. We have told the public it works, so we can't go back on that. Then why do we want a pre-fluoridation survey?" TRANSCRIPT.
If you're a cockroach, waterbug, silverfish or louse, don't CLICK HERE, or even HERE... you may DIE! But, if you're a human, don't worry, fluoride is, of course -- "safe and effective, safe and effective, safe and effective..." [4:04 - 4:14]...
No, really, please, even if you're a human, best to apply the "precautionary principle"  and not swallow this stuff. Oops, sorry, I forgot -- you don't have a choice... it's already in your tap water!
In these two interviews, Daniel Stockin, MPH, discusses the issue of fluoride's various applications and high toxicity. Incidentally, Stockin has worked closely with US legal professionals to bring about legal actions that have directly targeted major organisations such as the US National Kidney Foundation and American Water Works Association. For instance, US Attorney Robert Reeves wrote the following to the AWWA:
"AWWA has been notified that there are significant health concerns now acknowledged by the scientific community about potential harm from ingestion of fluorides and should govern itself accordingly […] AWWA has a unique opportunity and responsibility to help stop the harm to people’s kidneys, teeth, bones and other organ systems from ingestion of unmeasured amounts of fluoride in water by sensitive and general populations.” Full letter.
In an Australian context, this issue is discussed here. Furthermore, Stockin was a co-signatory of the landmark article, 'Citizens are being misled' along with the follow-up, 'Demand for Dr. Carnie's resignation.'
FLUORIDE compounds are classified as S6/S7 Poisons - the warnings on the packets usually say "TOXIC" with a skull and crossbones; or "POISON: NOT FOR INTERNAL USE" [ html ; pdf ]. Audio is also available, on this topic: aud1; aud2; aud3; aud4.
i.e. YUM? 'Safe and effective'? Would you HONESTLY drink this stuff if you care about your long-term 'health'? You don't have to be a scientist to understand a label that tells you, "do not swallow". It doesn't say, "Do not swallow... but small amounts are okay!')." "DO NOT" means "DO NOT". PERIOD! Fluoridated toothpaste rarely avoids a warning label (at least in the US) -- Dr. Bill Osmunson explains.
Fluoride accumulates in the BONES and other parts of the body, such as the pineal gland; "the kidney ACCUMULATES more fluoride than all other soft tissues," when any amount of fluoride is present in drinking water. Not even the hardest parts of the human body, such as the teeth, escape fluoride's damaging systemic effects.
"it is illogical to assume that tooth enamel is the only tissue affected by low daily doses of fluoride ingestion."
SOURCE: Dr. Hardy Limeback, Head of Preventive Dentistry, University of Toronto. (2000). Why I am now Officially Opposed to Adding Fluoride to Drinking Water.
"Common sense should tell us that if a poison circulating in a child's body can damage the tooth-forming cells, then other harm also is likely."
SOURCE: Colquhoun J. (1997). Why I changed my mind about Fluoridation. Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 41:29-44.
And on top of it all, 'the authorities' tell YOU that you and your children MUST be FORCED to have this toxic cocktail in your public water supply to 'prevent tooth decay'. But, on the other hand, in their own journals, they openly state that fluoride's decay-fighting capacity is 'topical', i.e. applied to the surface of your teeth only (and, you spit out your toothpaste... don't you?).
Even the Journal of the American Dental Association now admits [JADA, p. 891 full text] that "Fluoride incorporated during tooth development is insufficient to play a significant role in caries protection." According to the Salt Lake Tribune:
"The cover story in July's issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association, however, unequivocally states that fluoride ingested during the formation of teeth -- before they break through the gums -- does not create teeth that are more resistant to decay. Fluoride is an effective means of preventing cavities, but only when splashed directly and regularly on the surface of existing teeth (topically). It does not help children more than adults." FULL ARTICLE.
Why then, drink the stuff? Why expose the rest of the body unnecessarily, to this toxin? See what a 2000 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine had to say about this (what a RIPPER CV this is! Reckon he knows a thing or two about Medicine?? ).
And, what of fluoride 'for the children'? Dr. Peter Mansfield:
"No physician in his right senses would prescribe for a person he has never met, whose medical history he does not know, a substance which is intended to create bodily change, with the advice: 'Take as much as you like, but you will take it for the rest of your life because some children suffer from tooth decay. ' It is a preposterous notion."
It may be worth mentioning at this juncture, that children in non-fluoridated countries seem to be doing just fine in relation to their teeth. No wonder Professor Paul Connett exclaims in THIS VIDEO [from 00:00 - 01:06], "it's insane! It's absolutely insane!"
Water fluoridation --- without a choice, as is the case in Australia --- violates the Nuremberg code for human experimentation, which states that "The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential."
NOTE particularly the following words from an Australian NSW Health senior representative, who is directly responsible for official fluoridation promotion and implementation. AUDIO LINK HERE. She admits that fluoridation is nothing more than an ongoing, uncontrolled experiment -- 'experiment' being the key word.
In relation to the Nuremberg code, in the case of a mass-experiment such as public water fluoridation, the public are clearly the "human subjects". But, they HAVE NOT given their... "voluntary consent"... which, according to the Code, is "absolutely essential."
"Who is the doctor" checking to see if you've consumed too much fluoride? Have you been given your basic individual right to informed consent to medication, by those directly adding fluoride to your drinking water? Have you given your permission to those creating and enforcing the legislation that directs this practice, to medicate you via your public water supply? If the answer is "no"... then you have the right to feel angry! Especially when you are told by authorities that you will "drink it [fluoridated water] whether you like it or not".
Governments introduced FLUORIDE COMPOUNDS to your drinking water to 'prevent/reduce decay' (even though this does not work as claimed; and it is a fact that the longest-fluoridated areas have some of "the worst teeth"). If fluoridated water is such a 'magic bullet', how does one explain THIS!? -- See article: 'Toddler dental disgrace' – The Age (NB: Fluoridation proponents proudly claim that Melbourne's water has been fluoridated for "more than 30 years").
Then, in the Government's infinite wisdom, they introduced legislation to protect themselves from litigation! Why, if fluoridation is so "safe and effective"?
No person has any right of action against-
(a) a water supply authority; or
(b) a member of a water supply authority; or
(c) a person acting under the direction of a water supply authority; or
(d) a person acting on behalf of a water supply authority under a contract
made between that authority and the person-
in respect of anything done in regard to the fluoridation of a public water
supply in accordance with the provisions of this Act.
(1) This Act binds all persons, including the State.
(2) However, nothing in this Act makes the State liable to be prosecuted for an offence.
Just as well! With ALL THE spills, leaks, malfunctions and subsequent overdoses throughout the years, legal bills could easily skyrocket if anyone - heaven forbid - had to take 'responsibility' for an accident.
Most people choose never to drink fluoridated water once they find out the toxic chemical 'soup' that governments state is 'safe and effective' to ingest, is neither!
It is vital laypeople use the correct Scientific names and terms when speaking of these chemicals; otherwise, there will be further confusion promoting the concept that the general community is drinking a more ‘natural’ form of fluoride ie. Calcium fluoride promoted as, 'safe and effective'.
Dental decay can be reduced dramatically by not using white sugar or eating refined foods (most soft drinks and many mixed fruit juices are loaded with refined white sugars - terrible for dental health). Replace white flour products with wholefood grain products. Consume a diet based on a wide variety of fruit and vegetables as the foundation of your daily diet (please look over the Juice Plus+ site within this website for further information on the health benefits of a diet high in fruit & vegetables, particularly in dental health).
The best drink for all ages, is pure unpolluted water - please note, that if you boil your water, it will NOT REMOVE FLUORIDES. The only way to remove fluoride is to use reverse osmosis, or distillation methods. Otherwise, use pure spring or rain water.
But especially, do not neglect quality daily dental habits ie. twice daily regular brushing and flossing; and have regular professional check-ups & cleans - and governments worldwide, need to provide affordable dental care plans for this vital service to be attainable for all.
And from this point, one must ask, do governments believe that 'fluoridation' is truly 'cost effective'? Professor Paul Connett, PhD, explains this further [VIDEO: precise points begin from time 07:00 - 07:40]. The 'spin' of governments around the world that are currently still using FLUORINE chemicals as medicines to 'strengthen teeth', is based on PROMOTING the vested interests of major companies. For example, see how murky the proverbial waters became when a certain toothpaste manufacturer was linked with a research professor charged with investigating suspected fluoride-caused bone cancer in young boys.
Understandably, the EPA Union was far from impressed, based on their following statement to Congress in 2005:
"It is simply unconscionable that [Bassin's] federally funded work was hidden for four years while millions of young boys continued to be exposed to increased risk of this disease, whose best outcome involves amputation. Several federal statutes express Congressional intent regarding timely warning about such risks."
Professor Paul Connett elaborated on this matter recently.
