Why is it some people read ONE article and think they are an authority on a subject? So you read this and now want to show everyone else the error in
our ways? I thank you for your insight and tireless work you put into reading that one article.
So Fluoride is good for you huh?
"Warning: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, get medical help
or contact Poison Control Center right away."
That is on TOOTHPASTE, tell me something if fluoride is so good for you why put it in the water supply? If you aren't suppose to swallow it why is it
in the water supply?
If that doesn't do it for ya', ever hear of Edward Bernays?
Probably not so I'll fill you in. He was an American pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda. Why is that important?
He also helped the Aluminum Company of America (Alcoa) and other special interest groups to convince the American public that water
fluoridation was safe and beneficial to human health. This was achieved by using the American Dental Association in a highly successful media
Now why would the public need to be convinced this was good for teeth? I mean if it was so good for you people would be clamoring to get it into their
water supply...I mean toothpaste.
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic
society" - Edward Bernays
Now let's talk about what it is:
Sodium Fluoride (NaF) was the first compound used and is the reference standard. It is a white, odorless powder or crystal; the crystalline form is
preferred if manual handling is used, as it minimizes dust. It is more expensive than the other compounds, but is easily handled and is usually used
by smaller utility companies. It is the byproduct of the production of superphosphate fertilizer.
Fluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) is an inexpensive liquid by-product of phosphate fertilizer manufacture.
It comes in varying
strengths, typically 23–25%; because it contains so much water, shipping can be expensive. It is also known as hexafluorosilicic, hexafluosilicic,
hydrofluosilicic, and silicofluoric acid.
Sodium fluorosilicate (Na2SiF6) is a powder or very fine crystal that is easier to ship than fluorosilicic acid. It is also known as sodium
These compounds were chosen for their solubility, safety, availability, and low cost. A 1992 census found that, for U.S. public water supply systems
reporting the type of compound used, 63% of the population received water fluoridated with fluorosilicic acid, 28% with sodium fluorosilicate, and 9%
with sodium fluoride.
63% of fluoride in water is a byproduct of the production of superphosphate fertilizer. That sounds awesome doesn't
Oh and I bet no one told you nobody knows how much Fluoride you receive via water because it is dumped in and not regulated after it is dumped in. And
Fluoride is a food additive and just about everything we cook uses tap water so you are most likely getting exposed somewhere, somehow.
So it may not be a conspiracy but it sure as hell shouldn't be in our water...and you might be better served being slightly more informed before
