The Dangers of Fluoride
is one of the most toxic substances known to man, yet based on its inclusion in virtually every brand of toothpaste, the American Dental Association believes it’s okay to use fluoride for preventative dental care. Other products, such as bottled water, infant formulas, and even vitamin supplements, now contain fluoride!
In 2002, nearly 90% of the U.S. population was supplied water via public water systems, and around 67% of that number received fluoridated water. This occurred in spite of the fact, “No statistically significant differences were found in the decay rates of permanent teeth or the percentages of decay-free children in the fluoridated, non-fluoridated, and partially fluoridated areas.”
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) typically label sodium fluoride as “…toxic by ingestion, inhalation and skin contact” and that PPE (personal protection equipment) for handling should include safety glasses and gloves. Fluorides are more toxic than lead http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=32628 and only slightly less poisonous than arsenic…http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=32333 and these toxins can enter your body from brushing your teeth or rinsing with many popular dental care products!
Fluoride compounds are still purposefully added to water in many areas (in a process known as fluoridation) and is used in most brands of toothpaste to help prevent tooth decay. However, fluoride has never been proven to significantly aid in protecting teeth from the development of cavities.
Every year Poison Control centers receive thousands of calls from people reporting excessive consumption of fluoride-containing products, such as vitamins, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc. Fluoride poisoning severely damages the body and can be fatal. This lethal chemical creates a toxic state that can cause a variety of harmful effects.
Also, Practically all of the beverages sold in stores use tap water. The customers who drink those beverages ingest a fair amount of added fluoride. When the availability of such beverages is combined with the amount of fluoridated tap water, one can appreciate the high level of fluoride in the present-day diet.
The ingestion of these simple everyday foods can introduce an increased amount of fluoride into the body:
- Reconstituted dry food
- Food cooked in a Teflon pan
- Soup made at home and in restaurants
- Mechanically de-boned chicken
- Anesthetics used to knock you out for surgery also contain fluorides. Read more
