Iceland's Volcanic Ash Causes Fluoride Poisoning

Animals in southern Iceland are at risk of fluoride poisoning if they inhale or ingest the ash from the recent volcanic eruption. Fluoride poisoning can lead to internal bleeding, long-term bone damage and tooth loss.

According to BBC News:

“The fluoride in the ash creates acid in the animals' stomachs, corroding the intestines and causing hemorrhages. It also binds with calcium in the bloodstream and after heavy exposure over a period of days makes bones frail, even causing teeth to crumble.”

From Mercola:

Many may see this story and never connect the dots between the tragic poisoning of these animals due to a natural event, and the intentional poisoning of human beings through excessive fluoride exposure each and every day.

This story is another clue that just because something exists in nature doesn't necessarily mean it is good for you. And this is certainly true for the seriously misguided use of fluoride to prevent dental cavities.

The practice of adding fluoride to your tap water began in 1945. With more than 60 percent of U.S. water supplies currently fluoridated, chances are you’re one of the 170 million Americans who drink fluoride on a daily basis.

Most likely, your dentist – along with countless government and public health officials -- has praised and promoted the use of fluoride, both in toothpaste and drinking water, as one of your must-do regimens to promote strong and healthy teeth.

Unfortunately, they've all bought the public deception, and have unwittingly participated in and perpetuated perhaps one of the grandest public health frauds and toxic cover-ups in U.S. history.

i use to work at a dental office doing lab work, and i remember signing a petition to take the flouride out of the water.

at least some dentists know whats up with flouride.

then again...i dont see how flouriding the water...would make a dentist money...which leads me to question why they all really pushed for it even in the 40's.

i wonder if theres a big difference between what they put in the water and whats in the ash?

It would be nice if this news would reach the world. Im assuming all of our medical problems might come to light if we just saw a group of people suffering in a similar way, publicly. Thank god there's the few people who have access to the internet.
