Jonathan Benson ~ 30,000 More People Freed From Water Fluoridation After Australian Town Rejects Poison

NaturalNews  November 27 2013

An outstanding ban on artificial water fluoridation has been upheld in the Australian coastal town of Byron Bay, located in New South Wales, following a heated encounter among local residents, scientists, dentists and city officials. The Fluoride Action Network reports that the Byron Shire Council ultimately ended up voting five-to-three to uphold the fluoride ban, relying on modern science which shows that fluoridation is both harmful and ineffective.

A group of fluoride-truth activists showed up to the recent meeting, which threatened to undo the ban, and made their voices heard about the outdated practice. Reports indicate that a large crowd, which included many local residents, showed up waving large signs and banners that said things like “We, the people of the Byron Bay Shire, strongly object to having our water poisoned with FLUORIDE!!!” Others brought letters signed by local doctors opposing the practice and delivered them directly to city officials.

“If Health NSW are truly concerned about dental health and not just fluoride, then they should support us in other ways to achieve better outcomes,” stated Byron Mayor Simon Richardson, who received resounding applause for his defense of health freedom.

On the opposing end, in support of fluoridation, were the usual suspects, including government health officials and those with a vested interest in poisoning the water supply with fluoride. Many of these individuals offered the same tired arguments about poor children with bad teeth allegedly needing all those fluoride chemicals in the water to protect against cavities, while at the same time ignoring the scientifically proven dangers of fluoride.

Bombshell: Syria’s “chemical weapons” turn out to be sodium fluoride, the same chemical dumped into municipal water supplies across the USA under “water fluoridation” schemes.

Mike Barrett ~ Israel To Stop Adding Fluoride To Water Supplies In 2014 Due To Health Concerns

NaturalSociety  August 15 2013

Supreme Court of Israel

Citing health concerns, the Supreme Court of Israel has ruled that the nation will stop fluoridating its water supplies in 2014. It’s ironic that as one of the most developed nations in the world, the United States is slow to follow suit of other nations that recognize the dangers of feeding the population various foods and substances – like genetically modified foods and fluoride.

Since 1974, fluoridated water supplies was mandatory in Israel. It seems the nation, like the U.S., thought (or pretended to think) that fluoride offered enough benefit to risk the populations health. Hoowever, Izun Hozer Association for Dissemination of Health Education and Yaacov Gurman petitioned Israel’s highest court on November 12, 2012, demanding that water fluoridation come to a halt due to not only potential health concerns, but also because fluoride provides virtually no benefit. In April 2013, the Minister of Health, Yael German, created a new regulation removing mandatory water fluoridation.

Interestingly, ruling not only puts an end to not just mandatory fluoridation in Israe, but all fluoridation — mandatory or voluntary. Here’s a translation of the court ruling.

Carolanne Wright ~ The Fattening Of America – Is Water Fluoridation To Blame?

NaturalNews  July 29 2013

As more information comes to light about fluoride poisoning across the country, connections between the chemical and weight gain are garnering attention. A known suppressor of the thyroid gland, fluoride is a major player in the rampant increase of obesity. But the toxicity of fluoride is subtle and can also manifest as creeping additional weight that is nearly impossible to shed. One aspect is certain: If we desire a slim and healthy body, getting a handle on fluoride exposure is crucial.

Unexplained weight gain and poor health linked with depressed thyroid

If you find yourself struggling with unexplained weight gain, fatigue, depression and general malaise, a malfunctioning thyroid may be the cause. According to “Fluoride Poisoning – It’s All Over,” German and Austrian researchers discovered in the 1930s that an overactive thyroid could be treated by bathing in fluorinated water – illustrating the powerful suppressive effect it has on the gland. For those who have a normal or low functioning thyroid, exposure to fluoride is a disaster for health. The article continues with a laundry list of staggering consequences:

“Deliberately damaging the thyroid will produce a plethora of symptoms affecting the entire human body from head to toe. Symptoms of thyroid damage and fluoride poisoning include weight gain, edema, kidney disease, kidney failure, hair loss, depression, aggression, aches, pains, skin problems, bone deformities (likely including “arthritis” and spontaneous fractures), sexual/erectile dysfunction, memory loss, weakness, fatigue, heart disease, irritability, cancer, digestive disorders including severe GERD as a result of swallowing fluoride, nausea, vomiting, visual problems, gum disease, “high cholesterol,” connective tissue damage, brittle teeth, wrinkles, premature aging, dehydration, and long, long after the whole body has been damaged, “cosmetic fluorosis” might finally show up in a tooth or two.”

Ethan A. Huff ~ Some Non-Organic Foods Contain Upwards Of 180 Times The Fluoride Level Of Tap Water, Says Expert

NaturalNews  July 22 2013

As a follow-up to our earlier report on fluoridated food crops, the following report explains a bit more about the true toxicity of the food supply in regards to fluoride chemicals. According to fluoride expert Jeff Green, many non-organic foods contain extremely high levels of fluoride because of the pesticide chemicals sprayed on them — and in some cases, non-organic produce contains up to 180 times the amount of fluoride found in tap water.

Fluoride-based pesticide chemicals such as cryolite (sodium hexafluoroaluminate) are commonly used on non-organic food crops because they are highly effective at both killing pests and protecting crops against pest damage. But these same chemicals tend to persist in, and on, produce, where unsuspecting consumers regularly consume them with their everyday meals. According to Green, about one-third of the average person’s fluoride exposure comes from non-organic food grown using fluoride chemicals.

“Cryolite is actually sodium aluminum fluoride … this sodium aluminum fluoride is especially effective at killing bugs,” says Green. “It’s also very sticky, so when they spray it, it’s more likely to stick on your produce, unless you’re … really working at trying to get it off of it.

Many common fruits, vegetables loaded with fluoride

Citrus fruits, it turns out, are allowed by law to be contaminated with up to 95 parts per million (ppm) of sodium aluminum fluoride, while potatoes are permitted to have up to 22 ppm on the outside skin, and two ppm on the inside flesh. Raisins are allowed to have 55 ppm of the chemical, while romaine lettuce can have up to 40 ppm. But perhaps the worst offender is iceberg lettuce, which is allowed to have a whopping 180 ppm of sodium aluminum fluoride, or 180 times the amount of fluoride typically added to municipal water supplies.

Conventional cereals, which are often made with pesticide-ridden grains, tend to contain high levels of fluoride as well. According to Green, tests have revealed that the popular breakfast cereal Wheaties, for instance, contains an average 10 ppm of fluoride, while Post Shredded Wheat contains 9.4 ppm. Conventional juices made using highly-fluoridated fruits such as grapes, apples, and cranberries also tend to test high for fluoride as well.

“As a result of fluoride-based pesticide residues on produce, researchers are finding that lettuce, tomatoes, cabbage, raisins and other common foods are also subject to even higher exposure levels than found in fluoridated water,” wrote Green in a piece entitled “Hidden Fluoride in our Food.” “The common pesticide cryolite (sodium aluminum fluoride containing both aluminum and fluoride) is found at alarmingly high rates in foods that easily absorb chemicals, such as potato skins, white grapes and strawberries.”

Combined fluoride exposures subject the average person to 700 times the maximum government threshold for fluoride

What this all means is that the average person’s cumulative exposure to fluoride from food, beverages, personal care products, and water is up to seven times the recommended maximum level, according to a government-compiled toxicological profile. Fluoride ions are smaller than water molecules, after all, which means they easily pass through the natural filtration mechanisms found in many fruits and vegetables, not to mention water filtration systems, the vast majority of which are incapable of filtering out fluoride ions.

Joe Martino ~ Fluoride: The Hard To Swallow Truth

Activist Post July 14 2013

Fluoride awareness is growing as more people are discovering the dangers associated with the use and consumption of fluoride. Whether it be the link between fluoride and the increased prominence of Alzheimer’s, or the link to cancer, people are realizing the archaic and uneducated use of fluoride is not the best choice given what we know today. There are alternatives!

A couple of years ago I made a short documentary to help spread the word as I was learning more about Fluoride. It is called Fluoride: The Hard to Swallow Truth. This film got a request to be in a film festival recently and I am writing this post to help spread the word and share this film globally while it’s in the festival. I have to admit that there are a couple of areas in the film that I wish I could adjust slightly. For example when I talk about the use of Fluoride in Nazi concentration camps, I want to be clear that this is alleged and still awaiting full proof. I also want to be clear that used topically (not in water fluoridation), Fluoride, in some cases, can help to harden enamel. But let’s also be clear that the absolute right amount needs to be used for efficacy, and even at that you are taking in a cumulative poison.

Dr. Paul Connett is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College. Since 1983 he taught chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY where he specialized in Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology but retired in 2006. Paul Connett has researched the literature on fluoride’s toxicity and the fluoridation debate for 17 years. He helped found the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and has given presentations on the dangers of fluoridation to legislative and research bodies around the world. This has included invited presentations to both the US EPA and the US National Research Council.

With two other authors he published the book, “The Case Against Fluoride” in 2010. In the first hour, we discuss fluoride propaganda and science. We’ll hear about the history of fluoride from dental research to economic interests, including the collusion between the U.S. government and fluoride producers. Paul talks about the dangerous effects of fluoridation ranging from arthritis to brain damage and what can exasperate its effects.

J.G. Vibes ~ Canadian Town Votes To End Water Fluoridation

theintelhub.com | January 30, 2012

Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Fluoride is a carcinogenic waste product of aluminum. It is also the main ingredient in rat poison, nerve gas and Prozac.  This chemical agent has been present in the water supply in America for several generations, but this sick and twisted idea actually began during the Third Reich in Nazi Germany.

Just recently a town in Canada has voted to keep fluoride out of their water supply. According to The Windsor Star:

“Windsor on Monday joined the growing number of municipalities which have voted to end the decades-old practice of adding fluoride to the water supply in the fight against tooth decay.

“A lot has changed in the last 60 years … fluoride is not the be-all and end-all to prevent tooth decay,” said Mayor Eddie Francis, who voted with the majority.

The motion passed 8-3 late Monday night.

Council’s rejection of fluoride after more than five hours of debate went contrary to the almost unanimous opinion of health and dental experts, as well as others with scientific backgrounds, present among the 27 delegations which spoke at the meeting.”

In an inspiring victory over the forces of evil, voters of Wichita, Kansas successfully rejected fluoridation of their city’s water supply at the ballot box yesterday.

Boasting a stunning 59% victory, Wichita residents asserted their decision to keep the additive from making its presence known in their water supply, despite efforts by pro-fluoridation groups to confuse voters.

Suspicions of fluoride’s negative health effects have long been a subject of contention. While city governments emphasize the importance of fluoridated water as it relates to dental health, numerous studies have negated its benefits and identified various health complications related to fluoride exposure.

A recent Harvard University study found that fluoride intake can impede cognitive development in young children, reducing overall IQ. “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature,” Anna L. Choi, a Harvard research scientist, and her colleagues wrote.
