Letter: Fluoride dangers explained
A Harvard meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health has concluded that water fluoridation significantly lowers IQ scores in children, and may be a neurotoxicant that affects brain development.
More than 23 human studies and 100 animal studies have linked fluoride to brain damage. Fluoride has immunosuppressive effects at low dosages, which can raise your risk of chronic disease, including cancer.
Long-lost research linking fluoride to cancer has resurfaced in a Dutch film clip featuring Dr. Dean Burk, co-founder of the US National Cancer Institute and head of its cytochemistry department for more than 30 years. In a taped interview, he equates water fluoridation to public murder.
Praise for the three individuals that stood up for what is right. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 41 percent of American children suffer from dental fluorosis caused by excess fluoride.
What is perhaps most surprising is that the harmful effects of fluoride have been known by conventional medical organizations for over half a century.
For example, the Journal of the American Medical Association stated in their Sept. 18, 1943, issue that fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons that change the permeability of the cell membrane by certain enzymes.
And, an editorial published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, Oct. 1, 1944, stated: "Drinking water containing as little as 1.2 ppm fluoride will cause developmental disturbances."
We cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances. The potentialities for harm outweigh those for good."
What is so bad with wanting our children to be healthier adults?
The reason for the decline in dental disease is in direct relation to the increased standard of living.
The dentists are doing a huge disservice to their patients by spreading this falsity.
Shame on you.
