Laughable videos, ATS really doesn't understand fluoride or how toxicity is determined.
- Toxicity is determined by effects it will have on an organism and is DOSE-DEPENDENT
- Your water is fluoridated at 1 PPM
- Europe hasn't banned fluoridating water, they fluoride their salt
- It binds to hard tissue and the virtually all of the rest that has not been absorbed by hard tissue is discharged
- Fluoride ions are fluoride ions, sodium fluoride is the same fluoride in calcium fluoride
- Fluoride wasn't used by Nazi's and has never been observed to have any effects such as making consumers docile
- It's not a "waste byproduct", it's recycled, like water is.
I can't think of any other random points so I'll point out and quote a couple things he said at the part where I stopped watching.
(Beginning at 6:40)
"We look at the original justification for fluoridating water where they picked a couple of cities, grand rapids was to be fluoridated, Muskegon was
not, to prove fluoride was preventing cavities"
They already knew fluoride was preventing tooth decay, the study was to see if adding it at safe levels would improve dental health.
In 1945, Grand Rapids became the first city in the world to fluoridate its drinking water.The Grand Rapids water fluoridation study was originally
sponsored by the U.S. Surgeon General, but was taken over by the NIDR shortly after the Institute's inception in 1948. During the 15-year project,
researchers monitored the rate of tooth decay among Grand Rapids' almost 30,000 schoolchildren. After just 11 years, Dean- who was now director of the
NIDR-announced an amazing finding. The caries rate among Grand Rapids children born after fluoride was added to the water supply dropped more than 60
Even before the study was completed...
It doesn't take 15 years to see the effects of fluoride, which they pretty much were already aware of.
What they didn't say, is in the unfluoridated city, there was a similar drop in the incidents of cavities as well. In fact throughout the
entire world, we began to see a drop in dental cavities...
Interesting claim if it was properly sourced, other wise, as I said before, strengthening teeth was already observed, they were testing if
fluoridating the water at safe levels would have an impact, and it did, as quoted above.
After this point, he just rambles about how fluoride doesn't make teeth resistant to cavities and how it somehow makes teeth weaker to damage.
The process of fluoride improving teeth is already established, arguing that it doesn't a populations dental health is basically stating that the
observed the effects of strengthening teeth somehow doesn't work when it is given to large amounts of people, it just doesn't make sense.
Basically, when you take fluoride, it enters the enamel which is composed of minerals such hydroxyapatite and forms hydroxyfluorapatite or
fluorapatite, both of which are less soluble to acids than hydroxyapatite which begins to dissolve in substances below a pH level around 5 or less.
It has other effects which you can read at a variety of sources such as:
