Are We Being Poisoned?


Last Edited: January 11, 2008, 5:18 am

If you have young children, you probably want them to grow up with strong, healthy bones and teeth.  So you follow the advice of your trusted doctor and dentist as any good parent does.

One of the things we've been told since most of us were born is that fluoride is good for our teeth and that drinking fluoridated water is essential for our good health.  The water in the United States has been fluoridated for over 60 years. The reason I began a little research is that when I had a fluoride treatment for tooth sensitivity, my teeth turned very yellow.  So I wanted to see where fluoride came from, since it's something we take for granted, just like 99% of the ingredients on labels. I believe if a company used the French word for rat poison and put it on ice cream most of us would never notice it.  After all, if something is made in the USA and sold in the USA then it must be good for us, right?

Did you know that it was proven many years ago that fluoride is a poison that causes cancer, bone loss and is associated with brain disorders?  I am sure that while many of you read this, you will be saying it's just another one of those conspiracy theories. So think about this for a minute.  For how many years did the big tobacco companies poison us without admitting that they knew smoking causes cancer?

Several reports published by research scientists explain how the use of fluoride in our water came about during the manufacturing and testing of the atom bomb. So I guess we've been human guinea pigs for many years. 

Please read this article, not for me, but for you and your family. 


Have you ever wondered why we take so much calcium (now added to almost everything we eat & drink) and still have such a high rate of osteoporosis?  Could it be that we have more fluoride in our water than anywhere else?  Fluoride has been proven to cause brittle bones.

As one article says: 

"Fluoride is a pollutant - a by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. The problem of how to legally dispose of fluoride was solved in the 1930's when a study (funded by one of the country's largest aluminum companies) concluded that fluoride prevented tooth decay. A successful public relations effort, helped along with some cooperative government cronies, resulted in the good news going out: this miracle chemical, when added to water supplies, will give everyone healthy teeth and brighter smiles."

Are you shaking your head and smiling, or does this give you pause? Maybe some of these studies will:

Fluorine is a Deadly Poison



I guess now we know why our toothpaste warns "do not swallow."

I read about alot of this years ago. I wonder if there is anything we can do? My city water company says there is no floride in our water and they recommend we use floridated toothpaste. Also, what about bottled water?

I grew up in the country drinking well water. Because it wasn't fluoridated, the dentist would give me fluoride treatments in his office twice per year. It was a gel he'd put in a tray in my mouth, and I know I swallowed alot of it. Do you think that explains what's wrong with me? twitch twitch

I don't know, Lilly. I tried darkening my hair and I still acted like a blonde.

We know why they put preservatives in different food products.
But what does preservative do to our immune system trying to combat diseaes that have presevatives in them.

Yes, Jap. Agree. That's why citrus acid is such a good preservative. It's natural and it fights bacteria. There are many natural preservatives, so chemicals shouldn't be necessary to add to our food. I guess, since we are society of convenience (I admit, I'm also a member of the fastest/easiest crowd) leaving out preservatives that make our bread last longer, etc., might upset some people. I just checked my bread and it says "calcium Proprionate, a preservative"   I know that's a mold inhibitor, but I have no idea if it's completely safe. I think it's also used to preserve tires. At least calcium & salt is something we naturally use. I don't the human body ever had fluoride in it.

Crap on a Cracker! I was just diagnosed with a thyroid problem in December and I just went into the specialist yesterday and I am waiting for the results from the many tests that were run. Anyway I went to the grocery store today and happend to skim a Scientific American and lo and behold there was an article about this subject in the issue. I saw that brewed black tea is at the top of their list as one of the worst things for you and, I kid you not, I drink (or rather as of today drank) one or two gallons of brewed black tea a day!!

Think, I hope you are feeling well and am sorry you are having medical problems, but please look at what you just wrote again.

First you write you have a thyroid problem and had to see a specialist. Then you write you drink a lot of brewed tea and that Scientific American is wrong when publishing it might be bad for you.

Do you think this makes sense? I mean, if I said I just saw a cardiologist and it's baloney that all the fat I've eaten for years causes heart disease, wouldn't you sit and wonder about that? Huh?
