Floride… poison or enamel saver ?
by Dr. Alan Kadish
Fluoride has been a contentious issue for years with many town not adding it to the cities water supply. There appears to be a clear delineation between those who continue to push this mineral as the saving of our children’s teeth to those who see it as an obvious poison.
Interestingly one should look at the history of how fluoride became a water additive and also to question why there was not a gross lack of proper enamel formation issues, prior to it’s introduction.
Consider that there has been a clear indication that more than 11 million people who receive fluoride via their water supply (2012), are receiving more the “optimal” level according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And now this update in 2015…..
What really is the most disturbing issue of this gross supplementation is both how it was orchestrated. The initial problem was mounting lawsuits over the fluoride pollution from the disposing of fluoride a toxic waste product from aluminum plants.
Essentially the solution….make it a medical product. As an FYI the waste product and the materials currently added to fluoridate your water is not the mineral that occurs in nature.
For those of you who want a full exposure of what really happened you might want to read the 2012 article “Poison is Treatment—Edward Bernays and the Campaign to Fluoridate America,” by James F. Tracy.
Sad that our health can be held hostage by those who “claim” science is on our side and the government is in collusion, even when the real science known and harm has been demonstrated in multiple studies.
If you need additional materials there are 42 human studies that link fluoride with disorders of the brain and many more animal studies to back up these claims…..hmmm time to rethink this health chaos.

(TRFW News) The fluoride-free movement continues to grow throughout the world. More than 400 communities around the world have ended existing fluoridation programs and reject new efforts for fluoridate. In 2014, 30 communities providing water to more than 9,961,111 residents rejected and ended fluoridation. (1)
On Monday April 27, 2015, federal health officials made the announcement that the amount of fluoride in drinking water will be significantly decreased for the first time since 1962. The officials reported that fluoride would be cut by almost half of the maximum. (2,3)
Recommendation for fluoride in drinking water now 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter instead of 0.7-1.2 milligrams per liter.
The Department of Health and Human Services recommends 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water instead of 0.7-1.2 milligrams per liter. (2,3)
“The change is recommended because now Americans have access to more sources of fluoride, such as toothpaste and mouth rinses, than they did when fluoridation was first introduced in the United States,” Dr. Boris Lushniak, the deputy surgeon general, told reporters during a conference call. (2)
As a result of the fluoride in water and in other products, the officials reported that American’s are getting too much fluoride, which is linked to large increase of fluorosis diagnosis. Fluorosis is often first recognized by faint white marks on your teeth. (2,3)
“The new recommended level will maintain the protective decay prevention benefits of water fluoridation and reduce the occurrence of dental fluorosis,” Lushniak says. (2)
Scientist and opponents of fluoridation continue to remind officials of research and hope to completely eliminate fluoride from water sources.
Opponents who have spent substantial time researching the effects of fluoridation report that the new standard is not good enough. They continue to cite evidence that overexposure to fluoride causes more problems than just the white marks found on teeth. Concerned researchers remind officials of scientific study that links fluoride to thyroid problems, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and even lower IQs. (2)
“Due to the importance of having the best possible brains in the future, I think that that would suggest that we be careful about the amount of fluoride that we deliver to the population in drinking water,” says Dr. Philippe Grandjean at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. (2)
“In our view, it’s high time for the United States to start following the approach taken by most of the Western world and stop fluoridating its water,” says Michael Connett of the Fluoride Action Network. (2)
“It makes far more sense for those people who want to use fluoride to brush it on their teeth, spit it out and that way you apply fluoride to the only tissue in the body that stands to benefit,” he says. “And you don’t expose every other tissue in the body.” (2)
If you live in a community where water fluoridation still occurs, consider purchasing a reverse osmosis filter, such as a Berkey water filtration system, that is designed to filter out fluoride from your drinking water.
