Fluoride - poison makes you docile to be more easily manipulated By Ian E. Stephens From an article in Nexus Magazine August/September 95 Despite damning evidence on fluoride toxicity, bureaucracies and multinationals continue to pollute our drinking water and mess with our physical and mental health Extracted with permission from his 1987 self-published booklet The Dickinson Statement: A Mind-Bogging Thesis Part 1 This story has a beginning, it has a middle but it has no ending. What follows is but a fractional part of the 'middle' of a story that began before the turn of the century and which was provoked by a statement contained in an "Address in Reply to the Governor's Speech to Parliament", as recorded in Victorian Hansard of 12 August 1987, by Mr. The relevant Hansard abstract is reproduced herewith. "At the end of the Second World War, the United States Government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany. The I.G. In 1938, I.G.

Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ - Published in Federal Gov't Journal British Government Wants to Force People to Drink Fluoridated Water The American Dental Association (ADA) and UK version of this agency, the British Dental Association (BDA), along with government agencies have long touted the benefits of fluoridating municipal water supplies to keep everyone’s teeth pearly white and without cavities, but what if you have no teeth? Truthfully, it doesn’t matter; fluoride is a toxic substance that shouldn’t be forced on the population, but even people without teeth are pushed to consume fluoride. Local officials are being asked by government agencies in the UK to fluoridate their water again, even though millions currently drink unfluoridated water. Only 6.1 million people in the UK currently drink fluoridated water, some of it being naturally fluoridated instead of forcibly tinkered with by adding sodium fluoride, a leftover from the fertilizer and mining industries. Why exactly the government would want to poison its people with fluoridated water when, as Dr. As Dr. Read: Rejection – 5 Fluoride Victories of 2014

Government recommends lowering fluoride levels in U.S. drinking water The American Dental Association says the new recommended fluoride levels will reduce tooth decay. There has been an increase in a condition called fluorosis It causes spotting and streaking on children's teeth The ADA says the new levels will still reduce tooth decay but minimize fluorosis Fluoride was first added to U.S. drinking water in the 1940s (CNN) -- The federal government is recommending changing the amount of fluoride in drinking water for the first time in 50 years. The Department of Health and Human Services and Environmental Protection Agency are proposing the change because of an increase in fluorosis -- a condition that causes spotting and streaking on children's teeth. The government is proposing that the recommended amount of fluoride in drinking water be set at 0.7 milligrams per liter of water. The recommended range has been 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter since 1962. The recommendations have been submitted to the Federal Register for a 30-day public comment period.

Government Calls for Lower Fluoride Levels byMike BarrettJanuary 7th, 2011Updated 12/16/2012 at 7:06 pm The United States government finally acknowledged the harmful effects that fluoride has on the body, and recommends that water fluoridation levels be decreased nationwide. Water fluoridation has been in effect in the United States for over 65 years. Since 1962 the government has recommended fluoride levels between 0.7 and 1.2 milligrams per liter in the nations drinking water. Over 72 percent of Americans drink water treated with fluoride.

Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children July 25, 2012 — For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted. The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012. * This sentence was updated on September 5, 2012. Read a September 2012 statement by the authors.

How Dangerous Is Fluoride To Your Health? Video Documentaries Fluorine is an element. It is a gas, never occurring in its free state. In microscopic amounts complexed with other minerals, it is often listed as a trace mineral, a nutrient for human nutrition. The fluoride added to 90% of drinking water is hydrofluoric acid which is a compound of fluorine that is a chemical byproduct of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing. Such fluoride is manmade. Hydrofluoric acid is used to refine high octane gasoline, to make fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons for freezers and air conditioners, and to manufacture computer screens, fluorescent light bulbs, semiconductors, plastics, herbicides, -- and toothpaste. It also has the ability to burn flesh to the bone, destroy eyes, and sear lungs so that victims drown in their own body fluid." Once in the body, fluoride is a destroyer of human enzymes. The History of Fluoride Today, a large percentage of public drinking water in the western world is fluoridated. Dr.

Mass Fluoridation of England’s Drinking Water Recommended by Government Agency Harvard study shows fluoridated water linked to decrease in child IQs Adan Salazar March 25, 2014 A governmental health authority is urging English cities to consider mass fluoridation of their water supplies in what they say will be a “safe and effective” way to increase public health. Officials with Public Health England, a governmental entity purporting to be all about “helping people to stay healthy, and protecting them from threats to their health,” have cited figures they say indicate adding the industrial toxic waste chemical is not as bad as once perceived. “In fluoridated areas, there were 45% fewer children aged one to four admitted to hospital [for dental problems],” a BBC report on PHE’s study claims, adding, “Levels of general tooth decay were 15% lower for five-year-olds and 11% lower for 12-year-olds.” “All infant formula, infant juices and virtually all beverages and foods contain fluoride,” reported Fluoride concerning the study.

Pineal Gland In the 1990s, a British scientist, Jennifer Luke, discovered that fluoride accumulates to strikingly high levels in the pineal gland. (Luke 2001). The pineal gland is located between the two hemispheres of the brain and is responsible for the synthesis and secretion of the hormone melatonin. Melatonin maintains the body’s circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle), regulates the onset of puberty in females, and helps protect the body from cell damage caused by free radicals. While it is not yet known if fluoride accumulation affects pineal gland function, preliminary animal experiments found that fluoride reduced melatonin levels and shortened the time to puberty. The Pineal Gland Has Highest Levels of Fluoride in Body As a calcifying tissue that is exposed to a high volume of blood flow, the pineal gland is a major target for fluoride accumulation in humans.

The Lancet: Fluoride IS a Neurotoxin! Catherine J. FrompovichActivist Post Who would have thought that it ever would have happened? Someone in mainstream medicine and peer reviewed literature and journals would publish the ‘unthinkable’: fluoride, the stuff they put into municipal water supplies supposedly to ‘protect’ teeth from cavities, is a neurotoxin. Wow! And congratulations to doctors Philippe Grandjean, MD, and Philip J Landrigan, MD, two researchers who published their findings in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 330 to 338, March 2014. [1] In the Summary published for their article, it states that Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency. Probably nothing more can confirm that as scientific, demographic, and the horrible truth! In that book I also mention fluoride. Notes: Resource: Dr.

Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Water fluoridation in England linked to higher rates of underactive thyroid Water fluoridation above a certain level is linked to 30 per cent higher than expected rates of underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) in England, suggests research published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health. The findings prompt the researchers to call for a rethink of public health policy to fluoridate the water supply in a bid to protect the nation’s tooth health. In England, around 10 per cent of the population (6 million) live in areas with a naturally or artificially fluoridated water supply of 1 mg fluoride per litre of drinking water. The researchers looked at the 2012 levels of fluoride in the drinking water supply, using data provided by the Drinking Water Inspectorate for individual postcodes. And they looked at the national prevalence of underactive thyroid diagnosed by family doctors in England in 2012-13 and recorded in their national quality and incentive scheme (QOF) returns.

While most Australians have been regularly consuming low amounts of fluoride since it was added to drinking water in the 1960s and 1970s to prevent tooth decay, several controversial studies in recent years have suggested the mineral may be linked to lower intelligence in children and thyroid problems that can cause weight gain, fatigue and depression. On Tuesday, the National Health and Medical Research Council revealed that a 2012 study linking very high levels of fluoride to low IQ among some Chinese children prompted it to commission a review of the health effects of the celebrated public health intervention. Furthermore, the study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives identified drinking water with fluoride concentrations up to 11.5 mg/L in China.
