Book review here:

Concerns over fluoridated drinking water have long been derided as the obsession of McCarthyite cranks. But this muckraking j’accuse asserts
that fluoride is indeed a dire threat to public health, one foisted upon
the nation by a vast conspiracy—not of Communist agents, but of our
very own military-industrial complex. Investigative reporter Bryson
revisits the decades-long controversy, drawing on mountains of
scientific studies, some unearthed from secret archives of government
and corporate laboratories, to question the effects of fluoride and the
motives of its leading advocates. The efficacy of fluoridated drinking
water in preventing tooth decay, he contends, is dubious. Fluoride in
its many forms may be one of the most toxic of industrial pollutants,
and Bryson cites scientific analyses linking fluoridated drinking water
to bone deformities, hyperactivity and a host of other complaints. The
post-war campaign to fluoridate drinking water, he claims, was less a
public health innovation than a public relations ploy sponsored by
industrial users of fluoride—including the government’s nuclear weapons
program. Legendary spin doctors like Edward Bernays exploited the
tenuous link between dental hygiene and fluoridation to create markets
to stimulate fluoride production and to prove the innocuousness of
fluoride compounds, thereby heading off lawsuits by factory workers and
others poisoned by industrial fluoride pollution. Bryson marshals an
impressive amount of research to demonstrate fluoride’s harmfulness, the
ties between leading fluoride researchers and the corporations who
funded and benefited from their research, and what he says is the
duplicity with which fluoridation was sold to the people. The result is a
compelling challenge to the reigning dental orthodoxy, which should
provoke renewed scientific scrutiny and public debate.

Product Description


“It is my sincere hope that Christopher Bryson’s apparently thorough and comprehensive perusal of the scientific literature on the biological actions of fluoride and the ensuing debates through the years
will receive the attention it deserves and that its implications will
be seriously considered.”—Arvid Carlsson, winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize
in Medicine

The Fluoride Deception reads like a whodunit. . . .We are left with compelling evidence that powerful interests with high financial stakes have colluded to prematurely close
honest discussion and investigation into fluoride toxicity.”—Chemical
& Engineering News

“Previous authors have presented the idea of a deception, if not an outright conspiracy, involving fluoride. What makes Bryson’s book unique is that it is an up-to-date account
supported by indisputable new evidence in the form of declassified
correspondence and exhumation of buried studies.”—Fluoride

“As with landmark titles, such as Silent Spring, Bryson’s book is bound to become a seminal volume.”—British Columbia Naturopathic
Association

With the narrative punch of Jonathan Harr’s A Civil Action and the commitment to environmental truth-telling of Erin Brockovich, The Fluoride Deception leads us on a terrifying
journey through the history of the industrial use of fluoride, a
chemical substance that has risen steadily in status from a deadly
environmental pollutant responsible for injuring thousands to a key
component in the development of the atomic bomb to a staple ingredient
in toothpaste and drinking water all across the United States.

Christopher Bryson is an award-winning investigative reporter and television producer. After reporting on Guatemalan Army human rights abuses from
Central America in the late 1980s for the BBC World Service, National
Public Radio, and The Atlanta Constitution, he then won a George
Polk Award as part of the Jonathan Kwitny investigative team on public
television’s The Kwitny Report.

Fluoride has indeed been documented to show many dangerous and ill effects including the lowering of intelligence in children and all living things. Perhaps that is one reason why there are so many children that have been diagnosed with some form of learning discrepancy in our schools. I recently signed a petition that went to the White House. Fluoride toxicity has been known for decades; however, it is still our drinking water. Reports have fallen on deaf ears.

Below is from the Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative:

Possible Symptoms of Fluoride Poisoning

Please Note: Having one or more of these symptoms does not necessarily mean you are fluoride poisoned. This page is offered only as a guide, which can help you determine whether fluoride poisoning is a possibility. Only your doctor can diagnose and treat you.*

* Arthritis – stiff, painful joints with or without swelling; painful feet in morning
* Asthma – especially after showering in chlorine-filtered water
* Bony, painful lumps where tendons and ligaments attach to bones. Calcifications of connective tissue on X-ray, especially with pain and reduced range of motion
* Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) – especially if it lifts when you spend time in an unfluoridated city or switch to distilled water for drinking and cooking
* Cold – temperature below normal, feeling cold all the time, feeling cold soon after a hot bath or shower
* Colic in bottle-fed babies or colic developing when breast-fed babies start solids or are weaned
* Dental fluorosis (white or brown spots on teeth
* Diabetes – worsening symptoms
* Diabetes insipidus (a kidney ailment) – excessive thirst, increased water consumption that does not relieve thirst, dry throat and irritated eyes, and frequent, dilute urine, especially at night, with normal blood sugar findings
* Eyes – moving black spots (scotoma, or floaters)
* Fatigue, weakness and brain fog after bathing or showering in chlorine-filtered water
* Fibromyalgia (severe muscle weakness and/or pain with extremely sore spots on various bony areas)
* Food intolerances that seem to come and go
* Gastrointestinal problems – irritable bowel, nausea, diarrhea without apparent cause, heartburn and upper bowel pain especially after drinking a full glass of water
* Gum disease – irritated or bleeding gums despite good hygiene and diet; gums heal when you use unfluoridated toothpaste
* Heart palpitations and increased heart rate without exertion
* Kidney disease – worsening symptoms, kidney stones
* Skin – hives, blisters, rash on stomach or back within an hour of drinking fluoridated water or after bathing or showering in chlorine-filtered water
* Tea drinking – causes upset stomach, gastric pain, heart palpitations or “the jitters” similar to strong coffee
* Teeth – loosening or needing to be extracted despite good hygiene and diet
* Thyroid diseases – underactive (hypothyroid), overactive (hyperthyroid or Graves disease), goiter and nodules

If you suspect you may be, indeed, fluoride poisoned, we offer you a self-help protocol for immediate response to your symptoms.
A Note on Fluoride Sensitivity

People can be fluoride-intolerant (toxicity, illness or pain reactions from non-histamine response) or fluoride-allergic (histamine response) from birth or from exposure and accumulation (acquired). They are the same problem with different routes of expression.

Individuals may be:

* born hypersensitive (about 1% of the population, of all ages, probably a genetic component)
* hypersensitive or increasingly severe after accumulating too much (chronically poisoned; can happen to anyone born and raised in a fluoridated area, but may also have a genetic component)
* hypersensitive after acute episode: poisoned from fluorinated drugs, pesticides, workplace exposure, or synergistic toxicity with exposures to electromagnetic fields (e.g. cell phone tower radiation), vaccines, chemicals or emotional trauma (e.g., car accident or tour of duty in a war zone) when previous to that exposure you were fine; now you have become intolerant of or allergic to fluoridated water and all other sources of fluoride

* Our Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative already has several Collaborative members, located in various places, who are MDs and are willing to see people who are fluoride poisoned. These doctors (and some dentists, too) accept the fact that people can be poisoned by fluoride, and they are learning about fluoride poisoning and ways it can be treated. Not all of these doctors feel competent to treat fluoride poisoning, but they have agreed to learn and to serve as liaisons for patients in their area. If you are having trouble finding a doctor who is friendly to the idea, please contact us and we will try to find you a nearby practitioner who is a Collaborative member.

As your constituent, I support the over 2,000 medical, dental, scientific, and environmental professionals calling for an end to fluoridation and a new Congressional Hearing on Fluoridation. See link to "Professionals' Statement" at the Fluoride Action Network home page: http://FluorideAction.net/ The professionals cite the landmark 2006 National Research Council (NRC) report on fluoride in water that identified many adverse health effects associated with exposure to fluoride. Based on the concentration levels reported to be harmful, there is clearly no adequate margin of safety to protect against these adverse effects for the 170 million Americans drinking fluoridated water. Especially at risk are infants and small children, the elderly or frail, and those with above average water consumption, inadequate nutrition, diabetes, and poor thyroid or kidney function. Ignoring all risks in the NRC report, the US CDC still spends millions of tax dollars aggressively promoting fluoridation and, after more than one year, the US EPA has failed to do the fluoride Risk Assessment called for in the NRC report. We need a new Congressional Hearing requiring CDC and EPA officials to provide, under oath, valid evidence that fluoridation is safe for ALL Americans. I believe that fluoridation is outdated, unscientific, violates medical ethics and denies freedom of choice. Its serious risks far outweigh its minor (if any) benefits. Fluoridation should be halted pending a new Congressional hearing and any legislation that may result from it. I look forward to learning if you will sponsor and/or support this urgently needed Congressional Hearing on Fluoridation.
We will add your signature from the information you provide.

50 Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation: http://www.fluoridealert.org/50-reasons.htm

Is fluoridated water necessary for healthy teeth?

NO. Most recent, large-scale studies have found that fluoridated water provides only a minor benefit to teeth, or no demonstrable benefit at all. According to a recent Canadian government review: "The magnitude of fluoridation's effect is not large in absolute terms, is often not statistically significant and may not be of clinical significance."

Moreover, according to the National Academy of Sciences, fluoride is not an essential nutrient. This means that no human disease - including tooth decay - will result from a "deficiency" of fluoride. Thus, unlike real nutrients like calcium and magnesium, the human body does not need fluoride for any physiological process.

Does fluoride need to be swallowed in order to prevent tooth decay?

NO. Most dental researchers now concede that fluoride’s main benefit comes from direct contact with the outside of teeth (a "topical" effect), and not from ingestion (a "systemic" effect). There is no need to swallow fluoride to prevent tooth decay.

You say that fluoride works topically. Does this mean that you promote the use of fluoridated toothpaste?

While the use of fluoridated toothpaste has certain benefits over water and salt fluoridation (e.g. the individual is given a choice; the fluoride does not contaminate the food supply; and the fluoride is applied to the teeth in a more targeted manner); it also presents a number of risks as well. For example:

* Children usually swallow a lot of toothpaste when brushing their teeth, and therefore, if they are using a fluoridated toothpaste they may ingest a lot of fluoride. (For some children, fluoride toothpaste represents the largest daily source of ingested fluoride.) As noted in a recent review:

"Virtually all authors have noted that some children could ingest more fluoride from dentrifice alone than is recommended as a total daily fluoride ingestion" (Levy 1999).

Swallowing toothpaste at a young age is one of the major risk factors for the development of dental fluorosis - a disfiguring condition that can have damaging effects on a child's appearance and self-esteem.

* Even if one doesn't actually swallow the fluoride, the fluoride may make it through the gum membrane and enter the bloodstream - thus contributing to a person's systemic exposure to fluoride.

* Among hypersensitive individuals, fluoride toothpaste may cause or aggravate dermatitis (skin rash, usually near the mouth) or stomatitis (mouth ulcers, "canker sores"). If you have dermatitis near the mouth, consider trying a non-fluoride toothpaste for 2-3 weeks and see if your condition improves. (If it does, please let us know.)

* Recent research from the pharmaceutical company Sepracor indicates that fluoridated toothpaste may cause or contribute to periodontal bone loss. This finding is serious because periodontal bone loss is the #1 cause of tooth loss among US adults. According to the scientists at Sepracor who conducted the study:

"We have found that fluoride, in the concentration range in which it is employed for the prevention of dental caries, stimulates the production of prostaglandins and thereby exacerbates the inflammatory response in gingivitis and periodontitis.... Thus, the inclusion of fluoride in toothpastes and mouthwashes for the purpose of inhibiting the development of caries [cavities] may, at the same time, accelerate the process of chronic, destructive periodontitis."

* The concentrations of fluoride used in toothpaste are very high (1,00o-1,500 ppm). Considering the fact that fluoride is a suspected mutagen, and that many mutagens are also carcinogens (i.e. they cause cancer), there is some concern that fluoridated toothpaste may cause or contribute to oral cancer.

* There are safer alternatives for protecting teeth than using a highly toxic compound like fluoride. In addition to non-fluoridated toothpastes, one alternative is xylitol, a natural sugar that is now being widely used in oral health programs throughout Scandinavia. Xylitol - which can be applied to the teeth via mints, gum, and toothpaste - has been found to be very effective in preventing tooth decay, and may even help remineralize teeth as well. A healthy diet, however, will always be the most important tool in the fight against tooth decay.
No, not that study.
Yes and on another note, they put rat poison in the Gardasil Vaccine too for young girls - FACT!
Best wishes on your quest too....

fluoride detox from natural news

http://www.naturalnews.com/026605_fluoride_fluorides_detox.html

NaturalNews) You can rid you body of most fluorides with some easy natural remedies. Fluorides have been linked to a variety of severe chronic, even acute health issues. First a quick review summary of fluoride.

Fluoride Toxicity

Fluoride is a soluble salt, not a heavy metal. There are two basic types of fluoride. Calcium fluoride appears naturally in underground water sources and even seawater. Enough of it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens bone and dental matter. But it is not nearly as toxic, nor does it negatively affect so many other health issues as sodium fluoride, which is added to many water supplies.

Sodium Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries. This fluoride has an amazing capacity to combine and increase the potency of other toxic materials. The sodium fluoride obtained from industrial waste and added to water supplies is also already contaminated with lead, aluminum, and cadmium.

It damages the liver and kidneys, weakens the immune system, possibly leading to cancer, creates symptoms that mimic fibromyalgia, and performs as a Trojan Horse to carry aluminum across the blood brain barrier. The latter is recognized as a source of the notorious "dumbing down" with lower IQ's and Alzheimer's effects of fluoride.

Another not commonly known organ victim of fluorosis is the pineal gland, located in the middle of the brain. The pineal gland can become calcified from fluorides, inhibiting it's function as a melatonin producer. Melatonin is needed for sound, deep sleep, and the lack of it also contributes to thyroid problems that affect the entire endocrine system. The pineal gland is also considered the physical link to the upper chakras or third eye for spiritual and intuitive openings.

Various permutations of Sodium Fluoride are also in many insecticides for homes and pesticides for crops. Sometimes it is even added to baby foods and bottled waters. If you live in a water fluoridated area, purchase commercially grown fruits, especially grapes, and vegetables that are chemically sprayed and grown areas irrigated by fluoridated water, you are getting a triple whammy! Better skip that fluoridated toothpaste!

Avoiding Fluoride Contamination

As always, the first step in detoxifying is to curb taking in toxins. Purifying water by reverse osmosis or distillation in fluoridated water communities is a good start to slowing down your fluoride contamination. Distillation comes with a bit of controversy, as all the minerals are removed. A great mineral supplement such as Fulvic Acid (not folic acid) or unsulfured blackstrap molasses is recommended if you distill your water.

Avoiding sprayed, commercially grown foods while consuming organic or locally grown foods is another big step. Watch out for processed foods such as instant tea, grape juice products, and soy milk for babies. They all contain high concentrations of sodium fluoride. So do many pharmaceutical "medicines". By minimizing your sodium fluoride intake, your body can begin eliminating the fluorides in your system slowly.

Magnesium is a very important mineral that many are lacking. Besides being so important in the metabolism and synthesis of nutrients within your cells, it also inhibits the absorption of fluoride into your cells! Along with magnesium, calcium seems to help attract the fluorides away from your bones and teeth, allowing your body to eliminate those toxins. So during any detox efforts with fluoride, it is essential that you include a healthy supplemental dose of absorbable calcium/magnesium as part of the protocol.

So Now Let's Speed Up the Fluoride Detox

This author received a comment stating that an earlier article's source reference to sunlight for decalcifying the pineal gland was inaccurate. He said that darkness, not light, is needed to stimulate the pineal gland into melatonin production, which should lead to breaking up the calcification of that gland. Besides being logical, further source research indicates the critic is correct!

Day time exercise, a healthful diet, not over eating, and meditation all contribute to higher melatonin production from the pineal gland. Though very helpful to many for getting a full night's deep sleep, it appears inconclusive whether melatonin supplements will help decalcify the pineal gland. But it does seem logical that it might.

Iodine supplementation has been clinically demonstrated to increase the urine irrigation of sodium fluoride from the body as calcium fluoride. The calcium is robbed from your body, so make sure you are taking effective calcium and magnesium supplements. Lecithin is recommended as an adjunct to using iodine for excreting fluorides.

Iodine is another nutrient lacking in most diets and causing hypothyroid symptoms of lethargy or metabolic imbalances. Eating lots of seafood for iodine has it's constantly rising mercury hazards. Seaweed foods and iodine supplements that combine iodine and potassium iodide are highly recommended over sea food by most.

Tamarind, originally indigenous to Africa but migrated into India and southeast Asia, has been used medicinally in Ayurvedic Medicine. The pulp, bark, and leaves from the tree can be converted to teas and strong tinctures, which have also shown the ability to eliminate fluorides through the urine.

Liver Cleanses are considered effective for eliminating fluorides and other toxins. There are two types of liver cleansing, both of which can be performed easily at home over a week or two of time. One of the protocols focuses on the liver itself , and the other cleanses the gall bladder, which is directly connected with liver functions. Simple instructions for both can be found on line with search engine inquiries.

Boron was studied in other parts of the world with pronounced success for fluoride detoxification. Borox, which contains boron, has a history of anecdotal success for detoxifying sodium fluoride. Yes, this is the borox you can find in the laundry aisles of some supermarkets. It needs to be taken in with pure water in small quantities.

As little as 1/32 of a teaspoon to 1/4 of a teaspoon in one liter of water consumed in small quantities throughout the day is what has been demonstrated as safe and effective. Around 1/8 of a teaspoon with a pinch of pure sea salt in a liter consumed in small quantities daily has been reported to have dramatic results. There is the possibility of a food grade version with sodium borate, if you can find it.

Dry Saunas combined with exercise releases sodium fluoride stored in fatty tissues. It can be intense enough to cause side effects or an occasional healing crisis. So keep the pure water intake high and drink some chickweed tea to protect the kidneys while using a highly absorbable cal/mag supplement. Lecithin is another useful adjunct to this protocol for fluoride detoxification.

Those Adjuncts to the Listed Remedies

Vitamin C in abundance was not mentioned as a helpful adjunct. It is now. But do not use ascorbic acid as your vitamin C source for an adjunct to any of the fluoride detox methods. Do take in as much other types of vitamin C as you can tolerate, along with a couple of tablespoons of lecithin daily. Add those to your absorbable calcium and magnesium supplements with plenty of pure water, get good sleep and rest, and the detox should be relatively smooth.

Chelation therapies are recommended primarily for heavy metal removals. Though fluorides are salts, the synthetic waste product variety, sodium fluoride, comes with a cargo of toxic heavy metals. And these pernicious salts have a way of combining more heavy metals. So including any one of several chelation therapies may be beneficial for overall health improvements while applying your chosen fluoride remedy or remedies.

Those include bentonite clay internally or externally, fulvic acid (NOT folic acid), cilantro pesto with chlorella, and even DMSA or any other chellation therapy with which you are familiar.
