HOMEPAGE INDEX II CHRISTIAN/PROPHECY
compounds which are put in water (fluoridation), toothpaste and supplement
tablets (including some vitamins) were never tested for safety before approval.
Recent independent research by scientists not associated with dental trade
organizations has shown the following:
Neurotoxic and Lowers IQ In 1995,
neurotoxicologist and former Director of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center
in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix published research showing that fluoride built up in the brains of animals when
exposed to moderate levels. Damage to the brain occured and the behavior
patterns of the animals was adversely effected. Offspring of pregnant animals
receiving relatively low doses of fluoride showed permanent effects to the
brain which were seen as hyperactivity (ADD-like symptoms). Young animals and
adult animals given fluoride experienced the opposite effect -- hypoactivity
or sluggishness. The toxic effects of fluoride on the central nervous system
was subsequently confirmed by previously-classified government research . Two new
epidemiological studies which tend to confirm fluoride's neurotoxic effects on the
brain have shown that children exposed to higher levels of fluoride had lower
A study published in Brain Research shows that rats drinking only 1 part per
million fluoride (NaF) in water had histologic lesions in their brain similar
to Alzheimer's disease and dementia. In addition, evidence was seen pointing
to possible damage to the blood brain barrier from extended fluoride exposure.
This study was the third in a series of papers published by Varner et al.
Brain Research Vol. 784 No. 12 p 284-298 (1998). Results of this recent study
and other studies showing significant dangers from low-level fluoride exposure
were presented at a recent scientific symposium .
Causes Cancer The Department of Health in
New Jersey found that bone cancer in male children was between two and seven
times greater in areas where water was fluoridated. U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) researchers confirmed the bone cancer-causing effects
of fluoride at low levels in an animal model. A new study has shown that fluoridation of water is linked to uterine
Changes Bone Structure and
Strength Fluoride gradually builds up in the bones and causes adverse
changes to the bone structure. Quite a few studies have shown that fluoridation leads to increases in hip
fractures. The tensile strength of the hip is destroyed over time by fluoride
Causes Birth Defects and Perinatal Deaths A
toxicologist in the United Kingdom recently found that perinatal deaths in a fluoridated area was 15% higher than
in neighboring non-fluoridated areas. The fluoridated area had a higher
socio-economic status and would have been expected to have less perinatal
deaths. The fluoridated area also had a 30% higher rate of Down's Syndrome.
Chile banned fluoridation because of research by the world-reknowned
researcher, Dr Albert Schatz, which showed a link to infant deaths due to
Proven Ineffective Fluoride compounds in
water and in supplements do not provide any significant cavity-protecting
effects. All of the recent large-scale studies of water fluoridation have shown that
there are no positive effects. There is scientific evidence that increased fluoride exposure leads to increased levels of
caries. That is why countries without fluoridation have shown an equal
improvement in dental health as those with fluoridation. Even
pro-fluoridation scientists admit that there is not any properly-conducted
research showing that fluoride supplements help prevent cavities. (Note: check
vitamins carefully to be sure they do not include
Impairs Immune System Independent research
has shown that fluoride impairs the functioning of the immune system. In the
United States, where toxic fluoride compounds are regularly added to water and
given to children since the 1960s and 1970s, we are beginning to see an
overwhelming number of people of that generation who are developing chronic
immune system disorders.
Causes Acute Adverse Reactions Several
double-blind studies have shown that fluoridated water can often cause acute adverse
reactions (in addition to the chronic poisoning effects discussed below). Some
of the effects seen in double-blind studies include: gastrointestinal
symptoms, stomatitis, joint pains, polydipsia, headaches, visual disturbances,
muscular weakness, and extreme tiredness. An enlightening review of a book by
one famous and well-respected researcher from The Netherlands who found
adverse reactions in double-blind experiments can be read
Causes Initial Stages of Skeletal
Fluorosis Fluoride can cause severe skeletal fluorosis at high levels.
Chronic, long-term exposure to levels of fluoride commonly found in water and
food in the U.S. can cause the beginning stages of skeletal fluorosis
including: pains in bones and joints, sensations of burning, pricking, and
tingling in the limbs, muscle weakness, chronic fatigue, gastrointestinal
disorders, reduced appetite, backache, osteoarthritis, etc. In fact, decades
of ingestion of fluoride from water and other common sources can be
expected to cause these symptoms in large numbers of people based on
calculations of fluoride intake and excretion. (Keep in mind that fluoride is
a cumulative poison since it builds up in the body of years.) Very few
healthcare practitioners are capable of diagnosing such a condition because
healthcare practitioners are not trained to test for or recognize the effects
chronic poisoning from fluoride.
Increases Lead and Arsenic
Exposure Fluoride compounds put into water are often contaminated with
lead, arsenic and radio nuclides since the fluoride compounds are
toxic waste byproducts which largely come from pollution
scrubbers of fertilizer plants. A study published in 2000 showed that the dumping of toxic
silicofluoride compounds into water ("fluoridation") causes an increase in
blood lead levels in children.
Fluoride Causes Osteoarthritis In a
study published in Rhuematology International in
2001 , researchers
found a link between fluoride exposure and the development of osteoarthritis.
The level of exposure that caused osteoarthritis is common in the United
Contributes to the Development of Repetitive
Stress Injury A clinical study in New Zealand showed that fluoride ingestion may be a
contributing factor in the development of Repetative Stress Injury (RSI) since
such ingestion may encourage the development of apatite crystal formation.
Elimination of fluoride plus regular supplementation of magnesium appeared to
help RSI patients considerably.
Causes Permanent Disfigurement of the Teeth in
Many Children A very large and increasing number of children are
experiencing dental fluorosis which is a permanent adverse structural change to the
Inhibits Key Enzymes As fluoride builds up
in different parts of the body over decades it can disrupt the actions of many
key enzymes. This fact has been known for a long time.
Supresses Thyroid Function Fluoride was
given at low levels during the early to mid 20th century as an effective way
of supressing thyroid function and treating hyperthyroidism. Articles and
research can be found on the Thyroid web page.
Causes Large Numbers of Acute
Poisonings Fluoride is an extremely poisonous substances at exceptionally
low doses and has caused a large number of acute poisonings . This is why a poison warning is now
required on fluoridated toothpastes sold in the U.S.
Independent Experts Oppose Dumping Fluoride
Into Water Over 1500 professionals at the US EPA, including toxicologists
and risk assessment experts voted unanimously to oppose the fluoridation
initiative in California because of the health risks involved. See
summary or official EPA union statement . Even the Candian Dental Association
Consultant and Researcher urged people to avoid drinking fluoridated water .
Unethical Fluoridation amounts to forced
medication of the water supply. Such practices demonstrate a complete lack of
ethics on the part of its promoters. Studies as early the 1930s showed extreme
hazards to man and the environment due to fluoride dumping and exposure.
Companies and organizations involved used the promotion of "fluoridation" as a
way to avoid lawsuits due to dumping toxic wastes and later for economic gain.

information. Banned in Many Countries Fluoridation is
not legal or not used in the overwhelming number of countries including
industrialized countries. Please see Fluoride Status of Countries web
