(NaturalNews) The following article is, in essence, my testimony delivered to the Hawaii Senate Health Committee in 2008. It contains facts that anyone can use to oppose water fluoridation wherever you live. The good news is that once again we have been successful in keeping fluoride out of our water supply.
Here we go again. Let’s take our pure and tasty drinking water, put a medication (fluoride) in it, make the people accept it and make believe we have Freedom of Choice in this country.
I would like to pose some hypothetical questions:
What would you do if you suddenly found out that fluoride was not “safe and effective” at all, but was actually a carcinogenic industrial waste?
What would you do if you learned that the sugar lobby’s answer to cavity reduction is more fluoride rather than less sugar in the diet?
What would you think if you suddenly found out that fluoride doesn’t stop tooth decay at all, but actually causes teeth to rot and crumble, and by the same mechanism also causes osteoporosis?
What would you do if you found out that a myriad of research and reports from China, showing that fluoride ingestion causes interference with brain development, had been purposely withheld from the people in the U.S.?
What would you do if you suddenly found out that fluoride inhibits antibody formation in the blood, depresses thyroid activity, promotes the development of bone cancer, causes premature aging of the human body, and is used in rat poison, and that the contents of a family size tube of overpriced, huge profit margined fluoridated toothpaste is enough to kill a 25 pound child?
And after you found out all this, would it surprise you that federal health agencies have known these facts for years, but have been controlled by the political interests of the nuclear arms, aluminum, and phosphate manufacturers to keep it a secret?
Why would they do that? So that a toxic industrial waste could be passed off on the public as a nutrient with necessary health benefits, to the tune of $10 billion a year or more going in the pockets of these industries rather then they having to spend that amount to dispose of it properly as a toxic waste.
Next, we have to look at the people that are for and against this assault upon our health.
Those against this horror movie are everyday people. Accountants, retired engineers, chemistry professors, teachers, acupuncturists, dentists, believe it or not, the Union of Scientists at the EPA, and a host of others from all walks of life. And, all of them come armed with peer-reviewed scientific literature to back up what they have to say.
Those in favor of this horror movie, with lots of credentials, are the majority of dentists, the public health officials and many people in various government positions. And what do they come armed with? Speculation and years of repeating, like good little lemmings, that fluoride is “safe and effective”. If it were so safe and effective to ingest, why would the CDC say that fluoride’s effectiveness is on the surface of the tooth and only after it comes into the mouth?
Anyway, let’s take a look at some of these individuals with, “credentials”.
Dr. Mark Greer, Dental Chief, Hawaii Dept. of Health
Back in the year 2000, Dr. Greer, on Hawaii Public Radio, made the statement that fluoride is safe because there were toxicology tests done on it that verified this. Sounds great doesn’t it? There’s one problem though – only in 2006, by the National Research Council, were toxicology tests done on the fluoride substances that are added to the water supply with the conclusion that fluoride was indeed toxic and dangerous to health. Their finding? Anything more than 1.2 ppm is toxic! Also, after trying unsuccessfully twice to obtain a copy of Dr. Greer’s alleged report substantiating his toxicology assertion, I had to go through the Attorney General’s office to obtain the report under the Freedom of Information Act. It’s funny though that the several hundred page report that I received from Dr. Greer contained nothing about toxicology testing. I guess he thought I would never read such a long, boring report. But, when you know that a person is a liar, you leave nothing to chance.
So, the question that arises is, why would a man in Dr. Greer’s position deliberately lie? Does his brainwashed desire to fluoridate the water supply take precedence over his integrity? Apparently and unbelievably, so!
