I don’t normally rant, but maybe it’s time.
I started reporting on this at least 10 years ago, in my email list, before I had my blog. It just amazes me what the American public puts up with. All we needed was one study. Now we have how many that link fluoride to lowered IQ and even brain damage?
In Anchorage, Alaska, we have pristine water from wells and a beautiful mountain lake, Eklutna Lake, and then we let the government destroy it, putting a known poison into our public drinking water — a substance that Stalin used to dumb down and pacify the prisoners in the Gulag.
And this isn’t like we can easily remove it once they put it in. It’s almost impossible to totally remove. Distillation is the only way that I’m aware of to totally get it out. Perhaps the new Berkey filters can do the job too. But most haven’t even heard of a Berkey. I was told that reverse-osmosis removed 99% of the fluoride, but now I discover that is suspect. And none of these will remove fluoride that enters bodies through the skin while taking showers and baths.
This stuff is nasty. It’s in Psych drugs, pesticides, toothpaste. People are getting way too much, and most of this isn’t even food grade fluoride, but a toxic waste product from manufacturing that corporations would have to pay to toxic waste dump it, otherwise.
And the only way to remove the fluoride is to remove all of the other healthy minerals in the water too. Whereas the chlorine is easy to remove with a simple filter which would leave most of the beneficial minerals in our pristine drinking water could still remain.
And there are many other proven ill effects from consuming fluoride, which I’ve shown in many posts on this site. The data is overwhelming. It just baffles me that we still allow this poisoning of our children and ourselves!
And I’ve said many times before how there seems to be a media ban on even discussing the topic in Anchorage; though, Juneau’s media covered it in depth, and therefore had it removed.
When will Americans say ‘enough is enough?’ Fluoride is known to passify humans, not just lower IQ. So perhaps the fluoride itself is a reason the people won’t step out. But can’t we pull ourselves out of this stupor?
I mentioned this to our mayor, Dan Sullivan, who said he was aware of the issue. Previously, Mark Begich was mayor, and his brother Nick Begich is an expert on fluoride’s mind effects. Nick, we need you on local, Anchorage radio!
Why has there not even been a peep, a squeak? Do we have to lose it all before we realize what hit US — that we should have said something back then?
So much of what is happening to America and Americans is so frustrating to me, because the truth has been out there, but the sheeple (I hope many of you are not) just follow the corporate media’s daily “hardly any Vitamin D is really needed,” and their other anti-Americans garbage.
24 human fluoride IQ studies! 100 animal brain studies! How many more hundreds do we need before we the people demand the government not use our tax dollars to put a known toxic form of fluoride into our public drinking water.
Fluoride in Water Linked to Lower IQ in Children
Is this the end of water fluoridation?
NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Exposure to fluoride may lower children’s intelligence says a study pre-published in Environmental Health Perspectives, a publication of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (online December 17, 2010).
Fluoride is added to 70% of U.S. public drinking water supplies.
According to Paul Connett, Ph.D., director of the Fluoride Action Network, “This is the 24th study that has found this association, but this study is stronger than the rest because the authors have controlled for key confounding variables and in addition to correlating lowered IQ with levels of fluoride in the water, the authors found a correlation between lowered IQ and fluoride levels in children’s blood. This brings us closer to a cause and effect relationship between fluoride exposure and brain damage in children.”
“What is also striking is that the levels of the fluoride in the community where the lowered IQs were recorded were lower than the EPA’s so-called ‘safe’ drinking water standard for fluoride of 4 ppm and far too close for comfort to the levels used in artificial fluoridation programs (0.7 – 1.2 ppm),” says Connett.
In this study, 512 children aged 8-13 years in two Chinese villages were studied and tested – Wamaio with an average of 2.47 mg/L water fluoride (range 0.57-4.50 mg/L) and Xinhuai averaging 0.36 mg/L (range 0.18-0.76 mg/L).
The authors eliminated both lead exposure and iodine deficiency as possible causes for the lowered IQs. They also excluded any children who had a history of brain disease or head injury and none drank brick tea, known to contain high fluoride levels. Neither village is exposed to fluoride pollution from burning coal or other industrial sources.
About 28% of the children in the low-fluoride area scored as bright, normal or higher intelligence compared to only 8% in the “high” fluoride area of Wamaio.
In the high-fluoride city, 15% had scores indicating mental retardation and only 6% in the low-fluoride city.
The study authors write: “In this study we found a significant dose-response relation between fluoride level in serum and children’s IQ.”
In addition to this study, and the 23 other IQ studies, there have been over 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage (all the IQ and animal brain studies are listed in Appendix 1 in The Case Against Fluoride available online at http://fluoridealert.org/caseagainstfluoride.appendices.html).
