A National Research Council report concluded that the EPA’s standard for fluoride in drinking water is unsafe and should be lowered. The report highlighted damage that can be done to the teeth, bones, brain, endocrine system, thyroid, and pineal gland, all from drinking fluoride.
If it’s so dangerous, why add fluoride to water in the first place? The history starts in the early 20th century when so-called scientists noticed a correlation between stained teeth in certain areas and lower rates of dental decay.
Since sodium fluoride is a waste product of the aluminum production process, water fluoridation meant that the aluminum industry could profit from their industrial waste.
In 1945, Grand Rapids, Michigan became the first town to purposely add fluoride to their drinking water, and comparisons with the next town over (Muskegon) that did not fluoridate its water showed that children in Grand Rapids had better dental health.
There is substantial evidence, including more than fifty human population studies, that links elevated fluoride levels with neurological effects, especially lower IQ.
Fluoride also accumulates in the body, including the blood vessels, where it can contribute to calcification. A National Research Council report concluded that the EPA’s standard for fluoride in drinking water is unsafe and should be lowered.
The world is different than it was 100 years ago, especially when it comes to dental health. Most of us use toothpaste, and many people use fluoridated toothpaste, making fluoride in water unnecessary.
Today it’s even worse. Fluorosilicic acid (FSA), an inorganic fluoride compound, is a waste product of synthetic fertilizer production.
Breathing FSA’s fumes causes severe lung damage or death; an accidental splash on skin leads to burning and extreme pain. Yet FSA is put into barrels and shipped across the USA to be drip-fed into drinking water.
Science and good sense demand that we stop this practice, but decades of inertia and special interest lobbying for the pharmaceutical and chemicalindustry stand in the way.
