Americans consume water regularly without a passing thought, even though it can lead to a wide range of health problems including brain damage, dementia, bone cancer, muscle disorders, and thyroid disease. With few exceptions, most other countries do not fluoridate their drinking water, and for good reason—fluoride is a toxic drug linked with an array of potentially serious health problems. Yet despite irrefutable evidence of harm, the United States still adds fluoride to municipal water supplies reaching nearly 211 million Americans, including infants, the elderly, and those with chronic health problems.
Fluoride is continuously being removed from water nationally and globally as more people start to question practices that were once accepted without a true safety assessment. These bans are a great example of how consciousness is raising on the planet and people are more cognizant of what can harm or help their overall health.
Fluoridation, the process of adding fluoride to public water supplies in an effort to prevent cavities, has courted controversy since its introduction in the US during the 1940s. Now, the prestigious medical journal The Lancet has published a report that supports what opponents of fluoridehave long been arguing. In essence, the journal article pointed to the fact that fluoride is a developmental neurotoxin.
A new study looks at intracranial calcifications in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. After noticing that the brain’s primary structures were negatively affected by calcification, namely the pineal gland, habenula, choroids plexus, superior sagittal sinus, basal ganglia, falx, dura mater, and tentorium cerebelli, as well as the petroclinoid ligaments, a promising new hypothesis was formed.
Publishing their findings in a recent issue of Pharmacognosy Magazine, a research team out of India observed that regular consumption of turmeric, a spice commonly used in Indian and Asian cuisine, helps to protect the mammalian brain against fluoride poisoning. Having previously uncovered the pathways through which fluoride induces harmful neurodegenerative changes in the brain, the team from Mohanlal Sukhadia University found that turmeric both neutralizes existing fluoride and protects against additional fluoride.
Fluoride is a toxic industrial waste put into many communities municipal water supplies. While most of Europe rejects water fluoridation and many communities in the U.S. choose to end fluoridation due to activism, most communities still choose to fluoridate their water despite the known health dangers this toxin can have on the human body.
It is taking effect in cities across the nation. Anti-fluoridation activists and knowledgeable consumers have finally tipped the scale, and now Dallas will cease poisoning its water supply with sodium fluoride, saving taxpayers a million dollars annually, along with a few IQ points. After months of regular visits by citizens to city council meetings, the Dallas City Council decided last week to stop water fluoridation.
A study has been published that takes a thorough look at the pros and cons of ingesting fluoride. Based upon the findings, this new research paper calls for an end to public water fluoridation. Without mincing words, this new study offers the following 18 indications that fluoride is not only of dubious benefit for dental health, but that it is also terrible for overall human health.
A new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine titled, “Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride: An in vivo evidence,” adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a natural spice-derived protective agent against the various health effects associated with this compound is available.
When it comes to debating about the toxicity of fluoride, there are a lot of controversial issues that prevent people from understanding how toxic fluoride is. What most of us do not understand about fluoride is that there are two main forms of it. The natural version of fluoride is known as calcium fluoride which is naturally found in soil. It is not that harmful to us. The synthetic industrial version is called sodium fluoride. This industrial version is a synthetic toxic waste known to cause cancer.
The notion that drinking fluoridated water contributes to healthier teeth has not been proven, and is slowing disintegrating into thin air. As a matter of fact, there is more evidence that fluoride is harmful rather than helpful
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.
