I found this over at Northerntruthseeker's excellent site and it brought back to mind a piece I wanted to do some time back: FLUORIDE IS BAD FOR YOU! Fluoride doesn't do squat to stop tooth decay. In fact it's worse for your teeth than water alone! It dumbs you down! It's a known carcinogen! It's hard on the kidneys too! Unlike calcium or potassium or sodium, our bodies have zero need for fluoride. Yet our politocos insist on pushing it on us....
The message that fluoride safely prevents tooth decay has been around for decades. It came from the same "chemicals for better living" people who also told us that smoking cigarettes soothed the throat. But... fluoride is a pollutant. It's a toxic by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. Check your rat poison and cockroach powder for fluoride, because it's one of the main ingredients.
The problem of how to legally dispose of fluoride was solved in the 1930's when a study (funded by ALCOA) concluded that fluoride helped prevent tooth decay. A successful media campaign, assisted by cooperative politicos, resulted in the good news going out that this miracle chemical, when added to water, would give everyone bright healthy teeth and smiles.
The chlorine that's pumped into us via the water we drink will at least evaporate if we let the water sit out for a while. Not fluoride. Fluoride enters your body and sequesters in fat cells. And from there it seeps out into the rest of your body... poisoning everything along the way.
The question we may want to ask ourselves is this: why in hell would huge, multinational conglomerates, abetted by compliant politicos, want us dumb and glowing in the dark?
