It is disturbing to know that we are being feed water that has been poisoned legally. We really need to research all of the ingredients in our water and food. Fluoride is one of the main ingredients used to kill rats. Just because its legal to sell and sold at the grocery store does not make it right.
Scientist has shown the following effects of fluoride:
1. Neurotoxic and Lowers IQ – In 1995, neurotoxicologist and former Director of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix published research showing that fluoride built up in the brains of animals when exposed to moderate levels. Damage to the brain occured and the behavior patterns of the animals was adversely effected. Offspring of pregnant animals receiving relatively low doses of fluoride showed permanent effects to the brain which were seen as hyperactivity (ADD-like symptoms).
2. A study published in Brain Research shows that rats drinking only 1 part per million fluoride (NaF) in water had histologic lesions in their brain similar to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. In addition, evidence was seen pointing to possible damage to the blood brain barrier from extended fluoride exposure.
3. Causes Cancer
4. Changes Bone Structure and Strength
5. Causes Birth Defects and Perinatal Deaths
6. Proven Ineffective
Fluoride compounds in water and in supplements do not provide any significant cavity-protecting effects.
7. Impairs Immune System – Independent research has shown that fluoride impairs the functioning of the immune system. In the United States, where toxic fluoride compounds are regularly added to water and given to children since the 1960s and 1970s, we are beginning to see an overwhelming number of people of that generation who are developing chronic immune system disorders.
8. Banned in Many Countries – Fluoridation is not legal or not used in the overwhelming number of countries including industrialized countries. Fluoride needs to be banned in the United States as well.
